Through The Dark

Harry Styles, the typical bad boy, the usual culprit and the regular offender, is Clarity Harper’s best friend; and she wouldn't have it any other way. She watched him grow from an innocent little boy to the tattooed, pierced, womanizer he is today, but maybe it’s time to tame him. However; Clarity underestimates how hard this could be and they find themselves falling, and possibly breaking. But in the end, will they find their way Through The Dark, or will Clarity herself be the one that needs saving?


1. Chapter 1 - The Charm

 Through the Dark: Chapter ONE


Harrys P.O.V.

“Fuck you!” I yell at my father, who stands in the door frame, blocking my way through the front door. “Move.” I add, bluntly, glaring at him, roughling up my hair.

My again, drunk father shoves me backward, with half a smile forming against his mouth. “You think you’re so tough.” He takes a step forward, glaring at me with bloodshot eyes, swaying slightly unsteady. He smashes the beer bottle onto the tiles beside me, shattering the glass, liquid spreading across the floor. “Look at you, your nothing” He gestures his hand looking at me up and down, “Just like you were to your mother, nothing” He shakes his head, as I barge past him through the open gap between him and the door frame.

I kick my motorbike to life, speeding off down our quiet street, to the hell hole they call school.


“I hate you riding that.” Clarity reminds me, once again. I smirk up and down at her through my RayBans.  Wearing short shorts, a small black top that shows just the top of her stomach, her belly piercing just showing and a white long sleeved cardigan that passed the rim of her shorts. Her blond hair thinning out just past her breasts, which seemed bigger than usual, something I wish I didn’t notice. “You don’t even wear a helmet” she adds, rolling her blue eyes my way then shooting a glare, something just over my shoulder.

“What?” I ask looking back over my shoulder to see her ‘boyfriend’ flirting with other girls, as usual. “Fuck him Clarity.”

“I-  it’s fine, honestly” she lowers her head, adjusting her bag which hangs loosely on her shoulder, “We’re taking a break or something, I don’t really know…” she lifts her head to give me a weak smile, tugging on my shirt, pulling me along.

“Finally” I say roughling up my hair, “He’s a dick” she stops and turns to face me, inches apart, I feel her breath.

“And you’re not?” she smirks biting her lip whilst raising an eyebrow.

“Not to you.” I say pulling away from her, “Never to you.”

“You look terrible, what did you do last night?” Her face changes almost instantly from a smile to the scowling of her serious eyes. “Harry.” She adds shaking her head and turning away from me.

I roll my eyes, beginning to walk behind her “Clarity” I say, but I’m ignored, “Clarity!” I repeat, yelling louder this time, people looking over.

She turns to face me. Her face a serious scowl, but with a smirk she laughs. “I can never stay serious when you look at me like that.”

“It’s the charm my love.”

“Oh the charm.” she rolls her eyes, “I'm sure Olivia thinks so.” Clarity laughs mockingly flicking her hair back, as Olivia would do.

“You’re a bitch.” I pass her, lightly chuckling, but regaining all seriousness as I see Zayn in a blurred cloud of smoke.

“And yet you still manage to stand me.” she adds, standing in the same place I left her.

“Hurry up.” I call from over my shoulder, she runs and jumps using my shoulders as a slight boost then returning to my side with a grin. 

“Oi man, Liv’s looking for you.” Zayn shouts at me from the school gate, checking out passing girls.

“Oh she must be a part of the gang; she’s got a nick name and everything.” Clarity again mocks in sarcasm. Her head snuggling into my heavily muscled shoulder as she laughs at her joke, returning and flicking her hair back.

“I got to go.” I say becoming irritated, she pulls off me rolling her eyes, “Talk later.” I add slipping my hands into my pockets and walking off.

“Oh bye then.” The sarcasm still lingering in her voice, as I turn and she again flicks her hair back, in imitation of Olivia.


Clarity’s POV

“You’re jealous.” Zayn smirks towards me, flicking his smoke behind him.

“Jealous?” Honestly taken back I stare at him, almost speechless. A grin across his face, thinking his statement is right. “And you not?” I smile, stepping toward him. He smelt of smoke and cheap cologne. “You’ve always liked her.”

After leaning on the wall he takes a step closer to me, our faces practically inches apart, “Maybe, maybe not” he smirks leaning toward my ear “Kobe is behind us” he laughs into my neck, pulling away and past me.

I turn to see Kobe looking over at me, and smile to myself, and mentally thank Zayn. It’s not as if we’re close or anything, he’s Harrys mate, along with Niall, Louis and Liam, who are all tattooed, pierced “bad boys”, totally over rated really.

I glare at the girl next to him, for just a second then continuing on down the path.

Saying mine and Kobe’s relationship is complicated would be the understatement of the year, I mean we’re together, but not? If that makes any sense at all, we fight, he kisses other girls to make me jealous, and I go running back to him because I think I love him, but my heart isn’t ready to say I do, because when that happens that’s when I shatter.


“Clarity” I hear his voice just behind me, but I don’t turn around, but slow my pace for him to catch up. “Hey” he adds, brushing his shoulder against mine, smiling down at me.

“We’re taking a break remember” I say bluntly, trying not to look directly at him, into those big brown eyes. Wearing skinny black jeans, as most of the guys do, Harry honestly looking the best in them. A blue long sleeved shirt covers his big arms.

“I know, I just had to hear your voice, at least” He looks down toward the ground and with an abrupt stop, I stare at him.

“I hate you” I shove him backward “I hate you so much” I shove him again, his face emotionless, “But fuck I love you” I shove him again, up against the wall wrapping my hands against his waist kissing him.

Smirking down at me, he kisses back “I thought we were taking a break”, he smiles into the kiss squeezing my hips, reluctantly pulling away.

“We are” I smile up at him, pulling away from him, his hand brushing mine.

“I hate you” he leans on the wall I left him pressed against, his hands crossing his chest. His smile, ear to ear, that smile.

“Clarity!” I turn and see Laine, “Its Harry…” she yells, waving her hand at me frantically, her face worried. Oh god, I think what has he done…

I turn to see Kobe shaking his head, looking at me, without hesitation I almost run toward Laine and follow her. We enter the halls, were all the lockers are filled. People crowding a small area in the corner, I push past them all breaking into the middle of it.
