16. New Beginnings, New Faces



The next day was the first day at the new school.

I opened my eyes and stared at the ceiling of my new room. It had to be very early, it was pitch dark. I looked at my iPhone. 6:30 am. I lay there and watched as it got lighter outside.

Slowly I stood up, stretched and yawned and opened a window. Outside, the sun was shining and it was very warm, even though it was almost April.

I went into my bathroom, showered and studied, while I was wrapped in a towel, my wardrobe. What should I wear? After a few minutes I decided on a pair of shorts and a well-fitting top. I blow dried my hair and put it together in a bun.

I fumbled along my block and my pencil case and walked along with my bag down the stairs. Below I met Matt and Harry. They were sitting at breakfast, so I made myself a cup of tea and sat down next to Harry. I had no desire to "listen"; I stirred in my cup and drank from time to time a few sips. After a time it got boring, so I lifted my eyes and saw Lauren sitting across from me. I winced.

"Since when are you sitting there?" She looked at the kitchen clock.

"Five to ten minutes?" She grinned at me and I smiled back.

Lauren sat in her chair and did the same as I: stir in her cup.

I finished and put my cup in the sink. Then I looked at the clock.

"What had Candice told us when school starts again?" Harry looked at the clock.

"In twenty minutes. I think we should slowly go."

No sooner said than done.


Fifteen minutes later we were standing in front of the new school.

I looked in our round: Harry, the self-conscious, Lauren, the Stylish, Matt, the... well, just Matt, and... me.

I put on my sunglasses and said, "Okay. Let's go. "

We walked in a line through the big gate in a huge hall, where many students were. They all sat scattered in small groups on benches, on the floor or were standing around.

And somehow I felt like in a good American movie. We walked like in slow motion through the hall and many students turned to look at us. Many began to whisper and... well, since I could read lips I understood everything.

Often something like "Oh God, what the hell are they thinking they are?". But very often something like "Wow". But at a comment I had to smile genuine.

"The one with the curly hair is adorable."

I giggled and Harry nudged me.

"Everything okay?"

I nodded. "Yeah. But listen, the girl over there with the short hair thinks you're adorable."

I merely nodded in her direction and then looked at him again. "Hey, smile!" I hissed.

He blushed slightly, then looked in her direction and smiled at her. The girl, she had short black hair, wore a pink top, a dark, faded skirt and sneakers, looked as though she might faint, but quickly tried to smile back.

I watched her face and she repeated constantly the sentence "He smiled at me!"

Then I looked back at Harry. He shrugged his shoulders and said, "Not my type." Then he laughed shortly. "Oh man, I feel like a stupid boy band member."

We laughed shortly and I enjoyed the typical American- teen- movie- feeling. After a short time the feeling was replaced by confusion, because we didn’t know where we were. Lauren looked at me puzzled.

"Great. And now?"

We looked around some more. I chuckled briefly, looked at Harry and asked, "Why don't you just ask this girl, Haz?"

He pinched me in the side and I winced. He knew I hated that and so he began to laugh.

I rolled my eyes, looked at Lauren, who had dyed her hair light brown yesterday, and noticed in time her gaze with which she watched me and Harry. She looked at my eyes and then looked quickly to the front door.

At this moment, Chaz and Candice entered the school. They laughed and talked. Then they saw us, smiled and quickly came up to us. Chaz went to Lauren. They hugged and then she stood on tiptoe and kissed Chaz passionately.

Candice came up to us and hugged us. She told us the way to the office, where we went to fifth. Lauren and Chaz couldn’t be separated, so he came with us. In the office the woman gave us new timetables. Harry and I had many hours together, with the other I had math, sports and history. Before the woman told us where we needed to go, she looked sternly at Chaz.

"Shouldn't you be in class already?"

Chaz sighed, nodded and said, "On my way", then he kissed Lauren again briefly, said "See you later" and then he was gone.

Together with Harry I was on my way to English.

"Are you excited?"

Harry looked at me. "Well, a bit. You?"

I thought for a moment. "Well..." I shrugged my shoulders. "For me it's always difficult to meet new people."

I grinned at him and then we stood in front of the door. Harry knocked and I took another deep breath. Then he nodded to me and I opened the door.





"Don't you like it?"

I looked up from my plate and looked into my mother's face.

"I do, I do. I'm just tired."

She nodded and bit off a piece of her waffle. I looked at my plate, took a piece of bacon and bit it off. Difficulty I chewed and then swallowed. My mom nodded at me and grinned.

"When you're finished, go up and change clothes. Jenny is going to be here just in time."

Jenny was my private teacher. She was still quite young, but she could teach me a lot. Although I quite often messed around, she couldn’t be mad at me. Thanks to my Bieber charms.

"Okay," I said, got up and went to my room. I took a few things and went into the bathroom to shower. Then I got ready and dressed up.

Five minutes later Jenny was already there. We hugged and then sat down at the coffee table.

"So... where we left off last time?"





Melody walked in front of me the class and I quickly closed the door, while a man already quietly chatted with her. I joined them, just as the man said, "Well, Melody. I'm Mr. Connor. And you must be, um, Harrey Stylé."

He handed me his hand, I shook it and said, "Harry Styles, sir."

Mr. Connor shrugged his shoulders. "Whatever. You get five minutes time to introduce you."

Melody nodded and Mr. Connor stood before his class. He cleared his throat and asked for a long time for attention until he began.

"This year we have received increment for this course."

He looked in our direction. Melody walked into the middle of class and I followed her. I noticed how most of the pupils looked at her and watched every movement she made.

Okay. Maybe I was one of them.

Okay. Yes, I was definitely one of them.

I had to smile when I saw the black-haired girl as she stared angry at Mel. Mel turned around and looked at me.

We, Mel and I, smiled at each other before she said, "Hey. I'm Melody Sullivan. This is my first day at this school. I just moved from Los Angeles to Atlanta."

The whole time she looked serious, but in the end she put her best smile on and you could feel how abruptly the atmosphere changed: the boys began to smile, some of the girls looked angry, another part would liked to be here and the last part leaned interested in to learn more.

I felt Melody's eyes on me, so I began to talk. "Hey, I'm Harry. Harry Styles. Just like Melody I moved from Los Angeles and am new at this school."

Justin had taught me how to look "hot". I looked at the floor, shook my curls, then looked up slowly and smiled.

And apparently it worked, because the black-haired girl sighed and looked at me with her ​​little beady eyes. From the corner of my eye I saw Mel's look and she gave me a small, sweet smile.

I had to say thank you in any case to Justin.

"Okay, okay, enough now," said Mr. Connor. "Sit down on an empty seat and try to do your best."

As the hours were finally over, we left the room. As soon as we left it, Mel sighed.

"What's up?" I asked.

"Oh," she said. "Did you see all the girls who have adored you?"

She looked at me while we walked to the place we wanted to meet up with the others. I laughed softly.

"Do you know how many guys adored you? That was… wow. Even more than in Los Angeles." 

Now she laughed also.

"Yeah, I've noticed. Did you see the black-haired girl?" I nodded. 

"She has a total crush on you." she giggled and I sighed.

"I hate to turn girls down."

"What don’t you like about her?"

She’s not you. But I couldn't tell her of course, so I said "Her black hair. I like brunettes."

My heart started beating faster when I broke a streak from her bun and took it in my fingers. She smiled and shook her head slightly.

"Harry, Harry, Harry. You're not going to be a heartbreaker, are you?"

I laughed, let go of her streak and said, "Don't think so. There is the girl again. What shall I do if she wants to talk to me? I hate to hurt girls."

"Hm. Okay, so either you tell her the truth, or-"

I shook my head.

"Or you put your arm around me now and we go quite happy past her."

I stared at her incredulously.


"Sure. I don't mind." She smiled at me, took off her sunglasses out of her pocket and put them on.

I took a moment, then put my arm around her shoulders and pulled her in closer to me. Then she put her arm around my waist and rested her head on my shoulder. My heart skipped a beat and I tried to breathe calmly.

I smiled, placed my free hand on her chin and said, "You're amazing."

She began to smile broadly, shrugged her shoulders and said "I know."





I plopped down on the bench next to Chaz.

"I want to be back at my old school," I complained and he laughed.

"Yeah, I understand. There isn't this douche who hits on you the whole time. He's quite annoying, isn't he?" he said and I rolled my eyes.

"It's not you, it's this school. I miss my old classmates and even some of the teachers..." I told him and he sighed.

"Well, maybe a kiss could help you?" he suggested and began to smile.

"Maybe..." I said and his face came closer and closer, until his lips finally met mine. Now I had to grin and took his face in my hands.

"As soon as we are here at this school you just can't keep your hands off her, can you?" my brother said with a disgusted voice. I laughed and moved a little bit away of Chaz and immediately Matt squeezed in the gap between us.

"Oh, Mattie, you're not jealous, are you?" I poked him in the side and he looked at me seriously.

"I'm sorry, but Chaz is not my type."

I started laughing and Chaz looked at him in horror.

"But Matt! I thought you and I... we both... that would be forever!" Chaz pushed his lower lip and Matt gave him a played crushing glance mixed with a sorry-but-not-sorry-look.

"Oh, oh. Matt, the heartbreaker," said Harry and we all burst out laughing.

Then we turned around because we hadn’t noticed that Melody and Harry stood behind us. But, when I saw her, my laughter fall silent immediately.

"Mel, have I missed something?"

Melody had her hand placed firmly around Harry's waist and his arm stuck formally on their shoulders. Now Matt turned around.

"You know, man, it's not cool to hit on the taken girl of one of my best friends."

Harry removed his arm and Melody laughed. I frowned and looked at her. She was different lately.

"Calm down, Matt," she said with a bored voice. "That was my idea."

Matt shook his head and turned away again.

Suddenly someone shouted from further back "Matt!" 

I turned and met the gaze of a boy.

He had dark hair and calm brown eyes. He was slim, his hair was styled and he was pretty much the most beautiful and perfect person I had ever seen. His face seemed to be almost symmetrical, his eyes were like liquid chocolate, his full lips were formed into a smile.

Matt jumped up and said "Sorry, I have to go."

He went to him and they started talking. My eyes narrowed and I looked at Chaz, who had moved closer to me again.

"Who is that?" I asked. Chaz looked at the boy, then back at me.

"That's Zayn Malik," he said shortly.

looked back at this Zayn and Chaz put his arm around me. Zayn. What a beautiful name. 

"He is the football star at our school. He is quite popular, has many friends and thinks he is the greatest of all."

"And every girl wants to be his girlfriend. He is a total heartthrob, because he just knows how to treat a girl properly. I guess you forgot to mention that."

I was totally engrossed in watching this Zayn and every movement he did that Candice's voice totally terrified me. I winced and looked at her. Chaz did the same, only that he was apparently upset.

"Just because you don't like Amazayn, you don't have the right to talk about him like that."

Chaz made a disgusted sound and said "I'm just talking about the way he really is and... Oh, great!"

He looked forward. I followed his gaze and saw Matt and Zayn came up to us. Immediately Chaz pulled me a little closer to him and looked at our clasped hands now. A few seconds later they were standing in front of us and Matt introduced us to Zayn.

"This is Harry," Harry nodded briefly.

"Sitting next to my sister Melody," she smiled at Zayn and waved. Of course Zayn looked at her with a big grin.

"And this is my other sister, Melody's twin sister, Lauren. And I think you already know Chaz and Candice."

Zayn glanced at Chaz and then Candice. Candice jumped up and said "Hey, Zayn."

They hugged and he said "Hey, Candy."

But while they hugged he looked the whole time into my eyes. I smiled shyly and stroked my hair out of my face.

Zayn smiled, showed his shining white teeth and said, "Hey."
