Sometimes Goodbye is a Second Chance

Calli had just moved out of home into her first house and things are going well. But there is this one mysterious stranger. Well, hes not really a stranger anymore. His name is Harry and he lives right across the street from Calli. She's not sure what to think at first. Should she be frightened? Or is she going to warm up to the mysterious curly haired boy.


4. Chapter 4

I spend the rest of the day finishing up unpacking all my junk and placing new things where they go. I sigh in relief and flop back on my bed and grip the fluffy duvet. I lay there, staring at the ceiling for what seems like an hour, thinking about things. Everything is changing. I’m done with high school which means I probably won’t see a lot of those people again. Except for my good friends, of course. I’m out of the house now and I can do what I want when I want without my parents freaking. I’m starting college in a couple months. And then it pops back into my head. Harry. I don’t really know what to think. We haven’t really met properly but I can already tell he’s pretty cocky. He also has a nice side, though. I mean, he did give me his jacket and all. Maybe I should go over to his place tonight like he asked me to….

To: Harry

“Uhm hey. It’s Calli from across the street?”

I bit my lip as I pressed send. I laid the phone down and looked at the ceiling, waiting for him to reply. It took him about a minute.

From: Harry

“Oh hey! Have you thought about coming over yet? :)”

To: Harry

“Well I don’t have anything better to do sooo”

I smiled to myself at my remark. He needs a taste of his own medicine even though it wasn’t much. It’s just a playful argument.

From: Harry

“Good. Come over now?”

Oh goodness. I didn’t know I needed to go so soon.

To: Harry

“Uhm yeah I’m just gonna get ready and I’ll be over I guess.”

I jump out of bed, still in my clothes from earlier. I brush my tangly hair and touched up my hair with the straightening iron. I looked in the mirror and when I decided I looked somewhat-decent I texted Harry.


“On my way over now.”

From: Harry.

“Alright. I’ll be waiting. ;)”

I leave the house and wonder across the street to Harry’s place. As I’m about to knock on the door, it opens and I hit the figure standing in front of me. “Oh my gosh I’m so sorry!” I gush to the somewhat familiar figure. I smiled at his feet and laughed. “It’s fine.” He says, clearly not hurt. As I stand in front of the curly haired boy, I try to make out where I’ve seen him. He has curly hair, but not as long as Harry’s and a much lighter color. As he turns around, telling me to follow him, realization hits me. He’s that guy Harry was playing football with yesterday.

He walked into a room and I followed him in I find Harry sitting on a bed staring at his phone. “Calliiii!” He says emphasizing the “iii”. I nod at him and awkwardly stand looking at him. “Oh! This is Ashton!” He says looking at Ashton. Ashton smiled at me and Harry grabbed my hand and pulled me on the bed, sitting next to him. “So what shall we do tonight?” Harry asked glancing at me then Ashton. “We can watch movies!” Ashton shouts. “Sounds like an idea to me!” Harry grabs my hand and pulled me to a room which must be his own little personal theatre. He opened shelves revealing tons of movies.

Ashton and Harry decided on Sinister. A really scary movie. I wasn’t really up for scary movies right now but I apparently had no say in what we picked. Harry and Ashton both jumped on the couch spreading themselves out which left me no room. “Uhm excuse me?” I said and walked over the couch. I pushed Harry’s legs off the couch and sat down. Even though I was looking straight forward, I could see them exchange glances laughing. The movie started and I was already scared, sinking into my seat. When the first thing happened I jumped, screaming and covering my eyes.

When I decided it was safe to look, I poked my head up. “Scared easily, huh?” Ashton asked. “Just a little.” I say giggling. I liked Ashton. He was really nice and good looking at that. “Here.” Harry got up and scooted over the me, grabbing my shoulders and pulling me into him. “I’ll be fine.” I pulled away from him. I was really fed up with his cocky attitude.

I was fine up until the very next scary part. I threw up my hands and fell into Harry. I fisted his shirt and buried my face into his chest. I peeked my eyes up at Harry’s green shining ones. He looked down at me. “Ohh I knew you’d come around.” I ignored his comment and stayed like that for the rest of the movie.


“Great. Thanks to you guys, I’m really scared to sleep alone tonight. Good job.” “You could always stay here. With us.” Harry looked back at a nodding Ashton. “How about no.” I was not staying at a person’s house, it being only the second day I’ve knew him. “Oh come onnn.” Harry begged. “You already got your answer.” “At least let me walk you back to your place.” “Fine.” I said, giving in.

Once we got to my front porch, Harry spoke up. “You had a good time tonight, admit it.” “Bedsides being scared out of my skin, I suppose I did.” Harry’s face formed the biggest grin I’ve ever seen on a human being. “Ooooo you like me.” Harry cooed. “I do not.” I said playfully hitting his shoulder. “Whatever you like me.” I sighed. “Goodnight Harry.” I said and shut the door. I watched out the window as he walked back to his place.

From: Harry

“You like me ;)”
