But with the wedding coming up, Julia is worried there won't be a way out.
But she can't marry Harry.
Because of Niall.
She needs him, she wants him, she loves him, like crazy.


23. "Amazing,"

The luau was nothing short of amazing.
My mother conned me into hula dancing, which was actually really fun. I avoided Harry's stares and smirks, deciding to enjoy the night, as it was almost the last night we had left in Hawaii.
I was finishing my packing tonight so I could be completely ready to go tomorrow, and hopefully spend my day soaking up the sun.
I hadn't said much to Harry since we kissed, and I really didn't want to. Our house was big enough that I could easily avoid him, and I usually woke up and went to bed before he did. Part of me did feel bad, though. Yeah he kissed me, but I also kissed him back making me guilty as well. Maybe I should try to talk to him.. It was our last night here, and I didn't like feeling so alone.
As always, I decided to be the bigger person and try to work things out. I quickly finished my packing and threw my messed up beachy hair into a pony tail before walking slowly to Harry's room. I knocked softly on his door.
Why was I so nervous?
"Come in," he said, voice low and raspy.
I opened the door and stepped inside.
Now what?
Harry was lying shirtless on his bed. Hands and eyes glued to his phone, reminding me of the first time I had gone to his house.
"Could.. Um.. I was hoping.. We could.. Talk," I managed to utter out. His expression remained stuff but he nodded curtly.
what do I say? I really didn't think this through.
"Harry.. I-"
"Would you stop stuttering please? You don't have to act so nervous for crying out loud," he snapped.
I took a step back. What was his problem?
He looked at me for a second, "Are you going to talk for not?"
Fine, two can play at that game.
"Okay Harry, I'll talk," I said, sassily.
"I'm tired of you being so flirty when you have a girlfriend, I'm tired of you being so bitchy when I get mad at you and I'm tired of you being so.."
He cut me off, "Julia, stop."
And I did.
"I'm sorry, okay? But you kissed me back you know," he stated.
And I liked it.
"I know," I sighed. "And I'm sorry," I sat down on the edge of his bed.
"Being friends more difficult than you thought?" He asked.
I scoffed, "A tad,"
He chuckled, coming to sit near me at the end of the large bed. "I do want to try again though," he told me.
I smiled, "I do too. For real this time,"
"Good," he smiled.
"I should go to bed," I sighed.
"You could sleep in here. This house is too big to be alone in," he said, hopefully.
"Friends don't typically sleep together," I informed him.
He laughed. "Julia, it's not like I'm asking you to have sex with me,"
I though it over. I really did hate being in that room. I sighed and gave in, climbing further up on the bed. "This is my side," I declared, plopping my head down on a pillow.
I threw the duvet over me and Harry's arm slid around my waist, making me tense.
He laughed.
I relaxed, rolling over and out of his arm.
Just think of Niall.. I told myself.
"Goodnight Harry," I said, thankful he remained on his side of the bed.
"Goodnight, Julia,"
He whispered into the dark, the last sound heard until we both fell into a peaceful slumber.
-The next day-
I got to see Niall today. The thought was the only thing getting me through my mothers wedding rant on the flight home.
The already long flight seemed even longer with her going on and on and on and on...
Finally I suggested I go sit with Harry, who looked as miserable with my dad as I was with my mom.
I hadn't really thought of it until now, but Lilly and I haven't said a word the whole week I've been gone. Come to think of it, we haven't talked since even before then. I made a mental note to call her later, but all I wanted to do right now was go to Niall.
We arrived at the airport in New York, and I was extremely happy to be home. I told my mom Id ride home with Harry, that way it won't be suspicious and I can go see Niall.
"I take it you dont want to go straight home?" Harry asked as we got in the car.
I shook my head eagerly, "I want to see Niall,"
He nodded, "He doesn't live too far from Kenzie, so ill probably go see her and then come get you, okay?"
I nodded. We arrived at Niall's house not to long after, and I quickly thanked Harry before racing out of the car.
Niall's POV:
I eyed the University of London logo sticking out from it's hiding place beneath books and other papers. It had basically been all that I had thought of since I received it.
I was pretty sure I had made my decision by now.
I heard a knock on the door from downstairs. I quickly thudded down the steps and pulled the door open. Julia.
I'd nearly forgotten she was coming back today. She leaped into my arms, and i embraced her tightly. She wrapped her legs around my waist and kissed me passionately. It probably looked like we haven't seen each other in years.
"I missed you so much baby," I said, tightening my grip on her.
She ruffled my hair, looking me in the eyes, "I missed you more,"
She kissed me again before I put her down, reluctantly. I held her hand and led her up to my room.
"How was Hawaii?" I asked, sitting on my bed and pulling her into my chest.
"Beautiful. I really missed the city though. And you." She turned around and kissed my nose.
"Feels like you were gone for more than a week," I told her, tightening my grip on her waist.
She giggled and It was quiet for a moment.
"Hey! Have you decided about London yet?" She asked with excitement.
"Well.. I mean.. Yeah. I don't really want to talk about it now," I said.
"Come on!" She urged.
"I don't know. This week really made me realize how much I need you. I don't think I could handle being 5,000 miles away for that long and not being able to come home often."
"But this is your dream.. I don't want to be the thing holding you down, Niall ,"
Why did she have to be like that..
"I don't know, Julia. I don't want to talk about it," I shook my head.
She nodded, turning around to face me.
"I love you," she said.
"Mmm I love you, too."
She moved her leg to straddle me, connecting her lips softly to mine.
I placed two hands on her waist, pulling her impossibly closer to me.
Our tongues danced as she fisted my hair, moaning.
I turned and leant down on the bed so I was laying flat down.
I pulled her shirt off and slowly ran my fingers down her sides. I pulled away and she took the opportunity to rid me of my shirt.
I began kissing down her jaw, neck, and chest, leaving a love bite behind her ear.
She kissed down my neck, stopping as she reached behind my ear.
"How.. Do you do that?" She asked, referring to the bite behind her ear.
I chuckled, I found how naive she was adorable.
"Just like this baby," I said, demonstrating the gesture again.
"Can I try?" She asked, carefully.
I nodded. She leaned down, leaving me a love bite just as I taught her.
"How was that?" She asked.
