Niall’s POV

                The next day at school I texted Elizabeth to ask her when she would like for us to rehearse the song. I was leaning against the wall typing into my phone.

“Hey Niall!” I looked up and saw Harry walking towards me. I quickly finished typing and pressed send.

“Hey mate” I said giving him a smile and shook his hand.

“Look I came to ask you something”

I nodded. “Okay, what is it?”

“I know that you are helping Elizabeth with her song” he sighed.

“Who told you?” I asked looking at him a bit shocked.

“Louis, we were talking yesterday trying to figure out what I can do to get her back”

I bit my lip. “Are you mad?” He shook his head.

“No, I’m glad you are helping her. I really don’t want her to fail just because she doesn’t want to be my partner anymore”

I nodded and gave him a small smile.

“So my question is that ..ummm. I was wondering if you could help me get her back?” he paused. “I mean you’re going to be spending time with her and everything”

I nodded. “Of course I’ll help you bro. No worries.”

Elizabeth’s POV

The girls and I were walking to our class when I felt my phone vibrate in my jacket pocket. I pulled it out and saw that it was a text from Niall.

From : Niall

                Hey Ellie! I was wondering when would you like to start practicing?


To: Niall

                How about Lunch?

From: Niall

                Yea, that’s okay by me J

I smiled and pressed the lock button on my phone and placed it back into my pocket as I walked into the classroom.

During lunch, Niall and I were hanging out in the music room going over the song. Luckily he knew the song so memorizing the lyrics won’t be a problem. We were both sitting on the floor our lunch trays in front of us as we ate.

“I like the song. I really do think that you will pass!” Niall said as he took a bit from his pizza. I smiled.

“Hopefully, I’m so nervous” I said taking a sip of my water and licking my lips dry.

“Why do you say that?” Niall asked me tilting his head to the side.

“I have never really sung in front of people. Plus, Harry was the one that would always use to help me with my anxiety. “

Niall gave me a concerned look. “Do you get panic attacks?”

“Sometimes” I said quietly and bit on my lower lip and he gave me a nod.

“Hey speaking of Harry” He said holding a hand out in front of him and paused. I nodded wanting him to continue. “Are you going to forgive him?”

“I do want to . I mean I still care for him but what he did… it’s not that easy to ignore”

“I know but it wasn’t really his fault Ellie.” He shrugged.“ I mean he really cares for you. Hell, he would never stop talking about you and-“

“Niall” I said raising my eyebrows at him. “Did he ask you to talk to me about him?” Niall blinked at me took a sip of his water trying to look occupied.


“Okay!” Niall said holding his hands up. “ Yes he did but only because he cares about you. He really feels bad about everything”

I sighed. “ I understand that it was Mandy who took the first step but he should have just told me right when it happened”

Niall nodded and the class bell rung. He quickly stood up grabbing his backpack as I did the same.  We threw our empty trays into the trash and headed to class.

Eleanor and I were walking out of the library when I noticed Harry and Louis sitting on the steps. Harry turned around once he heard the door open and quickly stood up and I bit my lower lip.

Harry looked at me and fisted and unfisted his hands that were placed on either side of him. “Can I talk to you?”  I sighed and nodded at him.

“We leave you to talk” Louis said standing up taking Eleanor’s hand. She gave me a smile and a small wave at Harry before walking away.

“I actually wanted to talk to you to” I said and his eyes lit up. “I wanted to tell you to not get anyone else involved in this” I waved my hands in front of me. “Please” He looked at me, confused, then he blinked as if he realized something.

He gestured his hand to me.  “You talked to Niall didn’t you?” his voice sounding raspy.

I nodded. “Yes I did.  He only did it to help you and I understand that.” Harry furrowed his eyebrows at me biting on his lips. “However, you need to understand that what you did was wrong and-“

“I know that it was wrong Elizabeth” he said sternly. He only calls me by my full name whenever he is aggravated.  I sighed. “ How many times do I have to tell you that? I told you Mandy kissed me and I pushed her away and-“

“Yes, but you kept it from me. Above all you lied to me” He parted his lips scowling at me.  “You told me there was a long line for the bathroom. You should have just told me what happened.”

“Yea I know that now” he breathed.

“You kept it from me and everyone in the whole school knew before I did. I mean did you really think no one would find out? The whole school was at the party Harry”  I said and he sighed.

“I know and I’m sorry” he said looking at me with sincerity in his eyes.

I shook my head. “ I have to go Harry. Plus, I left my textbook in the library” I mumbled looking at the ground.

“No Ellie wait!” Harry said grabbing my arm as I turned around to step up the stairs. My foot got caught and I fell.

“Ow!” I said once I fell down.

“I’m sorry!” He said crouching down to me trying to help me back up.

“No no no!” I said pushing him away. I gripped my right ankle feeling a sharp pain. “My ankle hurts. Ow!” I hissed leaning a bit forward pressing my fingers into my ankle.  

“What happened!” Eleanor said letting go of Louis’s hand and ran to my side.

“My ankle hurts, I think I twisted it”  I said wanting to cry it hurt so bad. I couldn’t let Harry see me cry I could tell by the look on his face he already feels bad enough.

“Let’s take you to the nurse” Eleanor said standing up grabbing my bag.  “Louis will you help me?”

Louis looked at Harry as if to see if he would be the one to help me up but Harry just stood there. Louis walked over to my other side and grabbed my arm helping me up. Eleanor and Louis started to help me walk away from where I was standing and Harry just stood there not doing anything. I am so confused right now. If he cares why wouldn’t he be the one carrying me?
