Speak (A Harry Styles Fanfiction)
Rowan Williams was sexually abused from ages seven to fifteen. Ever since then, she has been afraid of men. She can't talk, for she is afraid someone will listen. Therefore, she is speechless. Her worst fear is people finding out about her ugly past, however she has no idea that one sole person besides her attacker knows. Harry. Harry is the son of her abuser, and he has no idea that his co-worker, Rowan Williams, is one of his father's past victims. Because of his troubled ways, he is mean and spiteful to her from day one, causing her to get even more timid of his presence each day. As unfortunate as it is already, Harry is even more enraged when he finds out that his next door neighbor is the girl he despises so much. That's right, ladies and gentlemen. Rowan Williams is the girl-next-door. And as each day goes by, Rowan becomes more and more curious as to who this boy really is... and why he's so troubled. Even though she's afraid to speak. Will her curiosity uncover new secrets, or will it bring back haunting memories from the past?
