It wasn't originally my plan to stay with Caroline, but Jake insisted probably because not only does he want her to fall in love with me, but he still was a protective brother and didn't want her alone all day. But, I wasn't going to argue about spending time with a girl I most likely had a crush on."So, what do you want to do?" I asked.
Caroline shrugged. "I was just going to watch tv."
"Well, turn it on, then!" I sat down on the couch beside Caroline. She turned the tv on and flipped through channels, finally stopping on a movie that was on, Titanic.
"This okay?" She asked.
I nodded. "Sure, it's not too bad."
"This is one of the greatest movies ever, it's nowhere near bad!" She exclaimed.
I shrugged. "I prefer comedies. But trust me, I like romance too. I am The Flirt of One Direction." I put my arm so it was resting on the top of the couch behind her.
She rolled her eyes. "I thought you were the dumb one."
I shook my head. "I can romantic when I want to be." I said, and I planned on proving it.
I don't know what Harry was thinking, but I didn't care. Of course I believed he could be romantic, especially with how many times he's attempted to flirt with me. But I couldn't let him know I knew that because then he might find out I had a growing crush on him. I had to stop the crush anyways, right?
Harry scooted closer to me, and I didn't mind at first when I realized I can't have a crush on him anymore. That's when I also noticed his arm. I got up and moved to the other couch. Of course, he moved next to me.
"Really?" I raised an eyebrow.
"What?" He acted dumb.
I rolled my eyes and tried to watch the movie, but Harry wouldn't stop. He put his hand on my leg. I slapped it over and glared at him. "Stop it!"
Harry shrugged, but tried again. Of course, I slapped it off again.
"Harry, knock it off!" I scolded.
Harry held his hands up before we both continued watching the movie. Instead of putting his hand on my leg, he wrappped it around me, that's when I had enough. I got up and started heading upstairs.
"Where are you going?" He asked.
I turned around to face him. "Up to my room. I thought we were passed this whole flirting thing, but I guess not." I asnwered, frustrated.
"Why does it matter?"
"Because, I hate when you try to "turn me on" because it just makes me feel awkward. I like hanging out with you, but not when you do this." I explained, continuing up to my room.
"Wait, wait, wait." Harry grabbed my hand, but I snatched it away. "Look, I'm sorry. I just wanted to prove I can be a romantic guy."
I sighed and looked down. This was so hard and confusing. Because I did want to see his romantic side, having a crush on him. But then, I didn't because I only wanted us to be friends.
"I'm sorry too. I was a little harsh. Can you just...not do it anymore?"
Harry quickly nodded. "Of course. I won't ever do it again. Promise."
I gave a smile, showing I was glad he wasn't going to be romantic, but on the inside I was kind of sad. I guess I was never going to be more friends with Harry if I told him I didn't want to be. But is that a good thing?
