Harmony's p.o.v|

"Hey Harmony, I was going to tell you..." Luke says.

"Look it's okay, Luke. I'm happy as long as you're happy." I walk away from him.

I walk over to the girls.

"Are you sure that you're okay?" Elisa asked.

"Yeah." I try to sound convincing.

"Harmony..." Stacey said.

"No." We go to the car.

And of course, Sydney has to come with us. We go back to the house. I just avoid Sydney as much as possible. I spend most of my time with the girls, Michael, Ashton, and Calum. Luke and Sydney are off somewhere else in the house.

"Why don't you like that Sydney girl?" Quinn asked.

"She's no good for him. She's such an actress." I shake my head in disbelief.

"I know right." Michael agrees with me.

"I'm just glad I have all of you."

"We love you, Harmony" Cal said.

"Aww, you called me Harmony." I smiled.

"What no I didn't, little one" Cal replied.

"Aww no come here!" I laughed.

I sit on Calum and I squeeze his cheeks. I tend to do this to the boys a lot.

"Get off me" he complains.

"Never." But Ashton grabs and makes me get off Calum.

"No," I giggle.

"Stop it, Harmony" Ash said.

"Fine," I huffed.


"Let's do something fun!" Stacey said.

"Like what?" Ashton asked.

"Let's go swimming!" Stacey said.

"Oh my god." Alexis and Rose start laughing.

"I agree, I am not going swimming. It's the middle of winter, Stacey. Are you nuts?" I laugh at her.

"No, just adventurous" she replied.

"Let's do it! You know what let's go skinny dipping." Cal said.


"What no! It could be something different." Calum defends himself.

"Yeah right!"

I though about it for a minute.

"You know what, let's do it! I'm tired of holding back. Let's go and do something crazy."

"What's happening to you, Harmony?" Ash asked.

"I'm just being adventurous." I decide to quote Stacey.

"Wait, you wanna skinny sip?" Michael asked.

"What? No way! I just want to go in the pool." I giggled.

The girls go and put on our bathing suits. The boys do the same. We go out back to their pool. Yes it is opened and I don't even know why. They keep it opened all year long and it's so weird. I guess they were dropped on their head.

"Alright, let's do this!" Stacey jumps into the pool.

Quinn, Rose, and Elisa followed after her.

"Alexis and Erica, you coming in with me?"

"Yes!" Alexis said.

The three of us jump in together. Michael, Calum, and Ashton follow after us.

"Hey, get your ass over here!" Ash shouted.

I swim over to him. He picks me up and I scream. He then throws me over his shoulder.

"Ash!" I couldn't even talk because my head was dunked into the water. He removes me from his shoulder.

"Thank god." I could breathe again.

He starts laughing.

"It's really not funny." I give him an evil look and we start laughing.

We all play around for awhile in the pool. That was until Luke comes out in his bathing suit and Sydney with her bikini on. Now, I was the one feeling insecure. I mean look at her, she's so skinny. My body is definitely not bikini ready as hers is.

"We thought we would join in on the fun" Sydney said.

"Oh great!" I smiled.

"Not," Ash says under his breath.

I start laughing.

"I have an idea! Let's play chicken!" Michael said.

"Yes!" Elisa shouts.


"Alright, Elisa you get on my shoulders. Stacey get on Ash's shoulders." Michael said.

"Okay" Stacey replied.

"I'm next."

They start to play. Stacey was struggling to push Elisa off Michael's shoulders. It was the funniest thing ever.

"Come on, use your muscles!" Ashton told her.

"What muscles?" Stacey said.

"Oh Jesus" I say out loud.

Stacey then knocks off Elisa surprisingly.

"All it took was a little motivation" Luke said.

Suddenly, I realized something.

"Wait, why are you wearing your shirt?" I swim up to Luke.

"No reason" he replied.

"Luke." I give him a look.

"What?" He laughs.

"Take it off." I know Luke doesn't like to talk about it, but he's a bit self-conscious.

"No" he said.

"Why not?" I question him.

"Just leave me alone, Harmony."

"Okay." I swim away, but I'm not giving up this easy.

"Okay, raise your hand if you want Luke to take his shirt off!" I shout.

Everyone raises their hands and I laughed.

"Okay, Luke take it off. We all voted." I tell him.

He shakes his head no.

"Yes" I say.

"Take it off!" Stacey cheered.

"Yeah, take it off! Take it off! Take it off!" We all cheered.

"Alright!" Luke takes his shirt off and throws it to the side.

"See, that wasn't so hard!" I smile at him. He looks at me clearly annoyed.

"Okay next up is Calum and Harmony, with Luke and Sydney." Ash said.

"Thanks buddy." I say to him sarcastically.

"I want to see you kick her ass so bad" Ash said.


I get up on Calum's shoulders without a problem.

"You're so light, Harmony" Cal said.

"Yeah right" I reply.

Sydney gets up on Luke's shoulders and we start to play the game. It was actually pretty easy to knock her down. I won!

"Woohoo!" I cheered.

Calum tries to spin me around in the water.

"High five!" Michael said.

I gave him a high five.

"Nice one" Quinn said.

"Thanks, Quinn."
