Chapter 43

Adam's POV

"Argh" I breath out a bit frustrated, throwing the xbox controller to the ground.

No wonder everybody beats me in this game, I just suck at this.

The sound off the doorbell makes me furrow my eyebrows in confusion. I don't expect anyone.

Wondering who it could be, I walk towards the front door. With I swing I open it, surprise hitting me.

"Harry? What are you doing here?" I ask the lad in front of me who's eyes are peering directly into mine.

"Aren't you supposed to be on tour?"

"Just wanted to say something!" He responses, stepping inside without me asking him. A bit taken back I take a step back so he can pass me and close the door. What is he doing here?

"So..." I start, hoping he'll start explaining why he's here.

Within a second he had pushed me against the walls, grabbing my collar as his eyes still peer into mine.

"You're going to leave Rose alone, I don't want you anywhere near her! You understand?" He growls. Who the fuck does he think he is?

Aggressively I push him away, "What are you going to do about it Styles? You'll be far away, remember?" I growl back.

"Let's just say that I hope for you that it won't get that far!" He tells me, already opening the door and walking away.

"I can't help it if she's the one contacting me! Remember that!" I shout after him as I see him tense up for a moment, but he doesn't react.

Angrily I walk back in and slam the door behind me.

He can't tell me what to do!

With a smirk on my face I pull my phone out of my pocket, type a message and hit the send button.

We'll see how this goes.

Rose's POV

Hesitantly I dip my toes into the hot water filling the bad tub. The bathroom is probably one of my favorite places to be in Harry's house, It's more a ballroom instead of a bathroom making me feel a bit like a princess.

The sound of my phone makes me step away from the bath again and try to grab the black device, my fingers already touch the cold glass but within seconds I slip out causing me to fall on my bum.

"Ouch" I breath out, the pain causing me to flinch.

With a bit effort I stand up straight again and with my hand running over my bum I reach for my phone, succeeding this time.

From: Adam

Wanna catch up with some coffee later? Grtz

Ochyeah, I totally forgot to call him! 

Quickly I send a reply, telling him that I'd love to.

It's been ages!


Within an hour I'm fully dressed in a pair of black skinny jeans and a grey sweater and already on my way to the cafe where I'm supposed to meet Adam.

"Good afternoon" A nice looking waitress greets me when I walk into the cafe.

"Hello" I greet back, my eyes scanning the room for the brown haired boy.

Adam's POV

"Hi" I hear a familiar voice say making me look up. My eyes meet Rose who's smiling sweetly at me.

"Hey" I greet back happily, standing up from my seat so I can give her a hug. "How are you?"

"I'm fine, just a bit down with Harry leaving and stuff!" Her smile fades a little when she mentions Harry but she quickly recovers herself and  sits down in the seat across from mine.

 If she only just could realize that she chose the wrong guy, she needs someone who's always there for her... someone like me. 

If only she could realize.

"You want something to drink?" I ask her, the gentleman I am.

"Uuh... yeah, earl grey tea please!" She smiles beautifully at me. I think I kind of forgot how beautiful she is.  

Maybe I should just tell her, tell her that I have a crush on her.  When I made that plan up weeks ago, to let Rose make Harry jealous, my goal was to get he... Please, don't ask me what I thought back then because it obviously didn't work, but still...

Quickly I order our drinks and sit back in front of Rose.

"So, how have you been?" I ask.

"Good good, I had an amazing few weeks with Harry and I..-"

"No, I mean how have you, Rose, been doing. If I want to know something about you and Harry I only have to open a gossip magazine."

She gasps, looking a bit taken back. Alright that wasn't smooth at all.

"I'm sorry, I don't mean it like that! I ju..-"

"It's okay Adam!" She cuts me off, replacing her gasp for a small smile but I can see she still doesn't feel comfortable. 

Good job Adam, now she thinks you're some kind of asshole. 


Hi, I suck at updating I know -.-

Anyways, I should really go and do some homework because I haven't been able to that with Midnight Memories.... It's so perfect! First I didn't want  to listen to it and wait but I just couldn't resist.. Niall's solos are just simply more than amazing... Meeh
