BETTER THAN I KNOW MYSELF - by How1DerfulLifeIs :) Enjoy. Xx
‘Aunty A! Have you seen my towel?’ I called down to my Aunty Anne, but I call her Aunty A for short.
‘Sorry Sweetie, I haven’t, it might be in the corner cupboard.’ She called from downstairs.
I walked to the small cupboard and pulled out my towel. It was a nice day so Aunty A and I were planning a day by the pool so we could spend some time together, just the two of us.
My phone vibrated in my pocket and the snippet of One Thing played ‘You’ve got that One Thing.’ I looked at it and my mood dropped slightly
Been delayed again, be a couple of days still. Can’t wait to see you. xH
This might not be making much sense to you so I’ll introduce myself. I’m Lizzy Hughs, I live with my Aunty, Anne Styles, her husband Robin and her son and daughter, my cousins (when they’re home anyway) Harry and Gemma and when I say Harry. Yes, I mean THE Harry Styles, 1/5 of boy band One Direction. blah blah blah
Harry and I have been inseparable since before I can remember, he is my best friend. And when my life was shaken beyond repair 3 years ago, for a while he was the only person I felt I could trust. Both my parents and my baby brother Hamish were in a car accident that killed all three of them when I was just 15. I cut myself off from everyone, even Harry but he pulled himself back in by being the only one to do what I needed.
Everyone one was constantly saying how sorry they were and how everything was going to be all right. Like i was totally gonna believe that after my parents and two year old brother had died EVERYTHING was going to be alright. what a load of BullShit!
But Harry... Harry was the one who spent hours playing Mario kart and WiiTennis with me, the one who climbed the old oak tree out the back of his house to our hidden platform, that no one else knew about and slept there with me. Harry knows me better then I know myself and he was my rock for that time.
Aunty A took the role as my guardian and I moved in with her, Robin and Harry. I got my own bedroom and bathroom and I moved to Harry’s school as well. Without the three of them I don’t think, no! I know I wouldn’t have gotten through that.
Lately I’ve been Aunty A’s rock. Since Harry has been on the X Factor then moved down to London with the lads she’s been missing him like crazy. Don’t get me wrong I miss him majorly as well but she isn’t quite used to him not being here much anymore yet.
‘Did you find it Lizzy?’ She calls up to me. “Yes thanks, it was in the cupboard like you said.’
‘Good good, could you come down here for a sec.’ I make my way to the staircase.
‘Aunty A, I got a text from Harry and he said that they got delayed again.’ I was almost at the bottom of the staircase when I finished and someone cleared their throat. I looked up and from the 4th step I leapt straight into Harry’s open arms.
He caught me effortlessly and spun me around a couple times. He put me down onto the bottom step so that I was just a little bit taller than him. I couldn’t help myself and I threw myself onto him for another hug.
‘I’ve missed you so much Hazzy!’ Hazzy is what I used to call him because when I was really little I could never say Harry properly. He squeezed me and pulled away ‘I missed you more Lizey.’ He said smiling. Lizey is what he used to call me. (Lie-Zee)
I took in the familiar features of hid and then ruffled his curls ‘You lied to me! You said you and the boys weren’t coming for another couple of days.’ I said punching him lightly on the arm.
‘Change of plans.’ He said mischievously. I raised my eyebrow ‘You sent that message to me like 5 minutes ago.’
‘We all wanted to surprise you.’ Niall said taking a step forward, ‘Nialler!’ I yelled and ran at him at the same time he opened his arms. ‘Hey Lizzy!’
“HEY where’s my hug huh?’ Louis said, I laughed. ‘Jealous are we Boo Bear?’ I said still hugging Niall and holding on a little longer but before I could let go of his, Louis jumped on both of us almost knocking us all to the ground.
