“Stay,” Harry pleaded. He wrapped his arm and leg around me pulling me closer into his body. I laughed, trying to break free from his grip.
“Harry I have to go!” I giggled. I tried lifting up his arm but it was useless. “My mom is going to start to wonder where I am.”
Harry and I fell asleep after we talked about Nate, the sky dark when we woke up. My mom should be cooking dinner by now and will be expecting me.
I twisted my body so that I was facing him with his arm and leg still wrapped around me tight. I tried not to giggle and put a serious face on.
“You are a bad influence Mr. Styles” I told him. Harry grinned mischievously.
“And how is that?” He asked.
“First you tell me to skip class and now your keeping me hostage.”
“And what’s so bad about that?”
“Nothing,” I told him truthfully. Harry leaned in and kissed me briefly then finally released me from his grip. I smiled appreciatively and slid out from underneath the covers. I gasped, totally forgetting that I had no clothes on and quickly put the covers around me.
“Don’t look” I urged, my face hot with embarrassment.
Harry laughed at me, confused for moment but suddenly realized what I was saying.
“That’s so cute” Harry mocked me. I rolled my eyes.
“Seriously!” I pleaded. Harry put his hands over his face to hide his eyes like he was a little kid. I couldn’t help but smile, he looked so cute. I got out of bed quickly and threw on my clothes as fast as I could.
“You know I’ve already seen you naked before” Harry muttered, his hands still covering his face.
“Yah underneath the covers. Out here… I feel so exposed” I told him, putting one shoe on. “Okay you can look.”
Harry uncovered his face and got out of bed, I shyly looked away as he put his boxers on. I still wasn’t used to this. I finished getting my things together and watched Harry as he walked across the room towards me, his bare chest distracting me.
“I wish you didn’t have to go” He said, tilting my chin up as he reached me.
“Me too but I’ll see you tomorrow” I whispered, my breath taken away again because of our proximity. Harry leaned down and kissed me, my head buzzing. He pulled away and I instantly felt upset, wanting more. He stared down at me and traced his thumb along my jaw line, both of us just silent and I think we were thinking the same thing. This was amazing.
“Don’t forget to talk to Nate” I told him as we separated. I could see his annoyance in his facial expression but he tried desperately not to show it. He just nodded and watched me as I left.
“Mom!” I yelled as I walked through the front hallway of our house. I could smell dinner cooking as usual and suddenly realized how hungry I was. I entered our open kitchen, my stomach growling at the strong delicious scent.
“Hey mom” I said, putting my backpack onto an empty chair at the breakfast bar. She turned her head around and smiled as she saw me standing there. My mom had the same color blond hair as me but hers was much shorter. She was in great shape for being her age and I always pray that I would take after her.
“Hi. Where have you’ve been?” she asked curiously, hands on hips.
“Stayed late at school, working on a project” I said cooly shrugging my shoulders. My mom bought it and nodded her head and turned her attention back to the stove. I walked over to the island and picked a slice of cucumber off one of the chopping boards and popped it into my mouth. My mother turned around again, looking over at me.
“Okay I’ll stop picking,” I said raising my eyebrows in defense.
“No I totally forgot- Nate’s here. He came over about twenty minutes ago looking for you. I told him that you weren’t home and he said he would wait for you in your room.”
“What? Nate’s upstairs?” I asked in shock.
She nodded her head in response and I practically sprinted out of the kitchen, taking two stairs at a time.
When I reached outside my door I took a deep breath, relaxing my hands from the fists I didn’t realize I was making. I slowly opened the door to my room, my heart in my throat. There was Nate, sitting at the end of my bed holding a picture frame of what I was assuming, both of us, from my night stand. I walked into the room slowly, the wood floors creaking beneath my feet. He glanced up, his shaggy hair in front of his eyes. He pushed his hair to the side and looked down shyly as if he was embarrassed that I caught him staring intently at the picture of us.
“Hey,” I croaked. My throat was suddenly dry.
He stood up and walked over to the table, placing the frame back to where it was before. The room felt heavy as he turned to look over at me. It was like everything was in slow motion.
“Hi” he replied with a weak smile.
And I just knew. I’ve known Nate for a long time and I knew that this conversation, what he was going to tell me, was going to change everything.

“Harry I can’t” I told him over my shoulder as I rushed down the hallway. I could hear him trying to keep up with me as he was a few steps behind.
“Carter it’s fine. You haven’t missed a class” he urged. I stopped and turned towards him, holding my books close to my chest and looked up at him.
“I missed yesterday’s” I said to him as I looked up through my eyelashes. I tried to forget about yesterdays ‘situation’ and why I left. Harry’s face dropped, he looked so hopeful and defeated at the same time.
“Please” he whispered trying to make his last desperate plea. I sighed looking away from him and around the now empty hallway. The bell should be ringing any second issuing the start of class, I needed to make a decision. I looked up at him one more time, a small smile playing upon my lips as I watched him pout like a child.
“Okay” I told him. This definitely wasn’t a good idea, to skip out on the rest of my afternoon classes but I couldn’t say no to him. His pouty lips were replaced with a huge grin as he held out his hand for me to grab.
The bell rang and my heart jumped. I had totally lost my sense of where I was for a quick moment, that seemed to always happen when I was with Harry.
“C’mon” he whispered as he lead me out the side door quickly before we were caught.
“This is where you wanted to take me?” I said in a disapproving voice. I stood there in the doorway of his room confused as to why he wanted me so badly to see his room. I watched him intently as he shrugged off his backpack and let in drop to the floor.
“Yes” he said simply. He looked over at me, his face falling as he noticed my annoyed expression. He sighed quietly and walked over to me, taking my books from my hand and placing them on the desk next to us.
“Are you angry?” he asked, closing the space between us. He reached over and held my face between his hands, forcing me to look up and make eye contact. I inhaled sharply, still not used to being so close to him. His face, emotions, expressions were all still pretty unknown to me. And I can’t imagine my heart not pounding every time I was this close to him.
“A little bit” I told him truthfully. “I just thought you were going to take me somewhere-” I began to say but couldn’t find the words to explain. Harry dropped his hands and I suddenly became anxious, was he mad at me?
“I know I know, you thought I was going to bring you somewhere romantic,” he said nodding his head. He didn’t take his eyes off me and I could tell he was hurt and annoyed with himself. I didn’t say anything and the mood became heavier, more awkward.
“I was going to take you to the park or something but I thought that my room was more suited. You know, there has never been a girl in my room before” he said looking at me.
That was strange to me. He had dated Rose for a while and so many girls before her you would think that there would have been.
“Not even Rose? Why?” I asked curiously. Harry shrugged, walking over and taking a seat at the end of his bed.
“I don’t know” he smiled to himself as if it seemed ridiculous, even to him. He looked down at his hands and played with the hem of his shirt as if he was nervous. I had never seen him like this before.
“This is the only place I feel like I can get away from everyone and just be myself. I didn’t want anyone to take that away from me. But you, you don’t care if I’m popular or an asshole, I feel like I can let my guard down when your around.”
I smiled shyly and looked down at the floor. I think that was the sweetest thing someone has ever said to me. And in that moment I had the sudden urge to touch him, just be in contact with him. I walked over to him and giggled as he patted his lap as if there was no room for me to sit elsewhere. My skin tingled as our skin made contact, I put my arms around his neck for support as he put his arms around my waist to hold me up.
“You don’t have to be any of those things Harry if you don’t want to” I whispered, my breath becoming short after realizing how close our faces where. His green eyes dazzled, taking the last breath that I had.
“I know that now” he whispered back before closing the distance between us. His soft lips touched mine, sending a sudden shock down my spine.
We both laid under his covers, his room silent except the sound of us catching our breaths. He turned towards me, a devilish smile on his lips.
“What?” I smiled facing him now. He didn’t take his eyes off me as he dragged his fingers up and down my arm sending goosebumps over my whole body.
“Nothing” he smiled mischievously. “I’m just glad that Mr.Benson paired us up.”
“Who would have thought,” I smiled back at him.
It was then silent for a few minutes, us finally catching our breaths. The sun was beginning to set and the warm colors lit up the room through the window. I finally ended the silence, unable to keep this question to myself.
“Harry?” I whispered turning towards him. His eyes were closed, his face peaceful. He looked so young in this moment, I wanted to remember it like this.
“Yeah?” He whispered back, opening one eye to look at me. I took a deep breath and looked away from him. I couldn’t look at him.
“Do you think you could talk to Nate?”
I held my breath waiting for him to reply and finally looked at him. Both his eyes were open now, his face scrunched in confusion at first. He looked deep in thought and I could tell he was trying to weigh out the pros and cons to this situation.
“Why?” he finally asked.
“Because he’s my best friend and he won’t talk to me. He thinks your the bad guy but I know your not. I know if you speak with him that he’ll be understanding of where I’m coming from.”
“Why can’t you just talk to him yourself?”
“I’ve tried!” I told him, my voice louder than I wanted it to be. I watched anxiously as Harry continued to look as if he was fighting with himself.
“Okay” he finally muttered. He looked pissed off but as soon as I smiled, his face softened.
“Thank you” I said meaningfully. He replied with reaching over and kissing me, the best response I could get.
