12.2K 336 93

  My mom had just finished cooking breakfast and was heading for work. She a nurse so she's gone most of the time. Sometimes overnight. I wonder how she even found the time to date David. I wish she didn't though.

I decided to call my friend Nina over for a while just because I didn't wanna be alone with Harry. The doorbell rang. That must be Nina

"I'll get it!" I shouted to Harry as I ran downstairs, even though I know he probably couldn't care less about who's at the door. When I finally get to the door and open it, I find my over-excited BFF holding what looks like magazines in one hand and a tub of cookie dough ice cream in the other with a huge smile on her face.

"Hey banana, I missed you so much!" She squealed.
Banana is the nickname she gave me. You know because it rhymes with my name. It's kind of cute.  I pull her in for a hug. "It's only been like a week Nina," I said. She shrugged."Yeah but it's a long time for me." We both walked over to the couch.

"So.....is he cute?" She asked. "Who?" I asked. She looked at me with a look of annoyance. "Umm your stepbrother who else." She said. Why would she even ask that? I can't think that way about him he's my stepbrother. I don't want to think of him that way.

"Why are you asking me? How would I know? I don't think of him like that!" I said.

She was taken aback by my little outburst. Maybe I did overreact just a little.

"Uh hello, so you can have me as your new sister-in-law." She said as if it was so obvious.

Why is she even talking like this? I knew she was only kidding but a small part of my brain was telling me otherwise. She doesn't even know him. He's not even her type. She's not even his type, I'm guessing.

"Wow, Nina thirsty much." I scoffed. "What? "I'm just curious." She exclaimed. I rolled my eyes. "So where is he? I wanna meet him." She asked. "Oh uh are you sure? he's kind of a jerk." I said. "So, that doesn't mean I can't meet him." She said.

"Well I kind of want to give him his space. I don't want to bother him and stay out of his way." I exclaimed. "Well at least tell me his name." She begged.

I heard a deep raspy voice from behind me respond "Harry, Harry Styles."
I turned around to see Harry standing behind the couch. Nina jumped up quickly and extended her hand out for Harry to shake.

"My name is Nina Davis." She said while batting her eyes.

Can she be any more desperate?

"We'll are you lady's talking about me?" Harry asked. I can hear the amusement in his voice.

Please leave.

Nina batted her eyelashes. "Well, that depends." She said.

"On what?" He asked. Harry smiled showing off his dimple. That's the first smile I've seen him crack since he's been here.

Nina smiled " On whether you find me attractive or not." Harry grinned "Well, I must be the topic of the conversation because you are stunning. "Nina blushed.

Wow, that was so corny. Is Nina serious right now? She's hitting on my stepbrother and she just met him like two minutes ago.

Okay shows over. I've had enough of this nonsense.

I clapped my hands together and stood up from the couch. "Ummm okay, Nina I think you should go home now. I'm feeling a little sick to my tummy." I said.

She looked at me desperately "Are you sure?" She asked.

"Absolutely, Bye I'll see you tomorrow at school," I said. I pulled her to the door and pushed her out. She waved goodbye to me and Harry before turning around and leaving.

Harry looked at me and smiled. Not a genuinely friendly smile but a smirk. He just stood there grinning like an idiot. I wanted to punch that smirk right off his face.

"What's so funny?" I scoffed. "I just love how jealous you get." He said.
What did he just say? Jealous? Who me? Of who?

"Umm jealous of what?" I asked.
He smirked. "When I flirt with other girls." He responded.

As if!!!

"I could care less about who you flirt with," I said. He grinned "Hmm, not by the way you pushed your friend out of here faster than I could say jealous.
I rolled my eyes. A small part of me knew that Harry was right.

I crossed my arms. "That doesn't prove anything," I argued.

He walked up so close to where I felt his breath fan against my lips. He lent down and whispered in my ear.

"Baby girl it's alright to be jealous. But at least I know that if I wanted you I could have you."

My breathing hitched and I knew that Harry could tell that I was affected by him. He smirked and chuckled at my reaction. I pushed past Harry and ran up the stairs leaving him and his sick twisted mind in the living room.  How dare he say that to me? This is absurd and ridiculous.

That's not even the worst part the worst part is.....

He's right.
