I Wish - Harry Styles + Zoey one shot.
So, this is what it feels like to be done with college, Zoey thought to herself as she looked in the mirror. Tonight Monica was having a big party for the entire senior class and Zoey had mixed feelings about it. On one hand she was excited about finally being done with college but on the other hand she was sad to say goodbye to all her friends. She had put on a short silver dress that sparkled when the light hit it, she’d curled her brown hair for a change, and put on some dark eye makeup wich made her green eyes stand out.
Half an hour later Zoey’s brother dropped her off at Monica’s house and it was clear there was a party going on inside even before she entered. The music was so loud she couldn’t believe the police hadn’t shot it down already. She found her friends as soon as she got into the kitchen. They all screamed and hugged eachother like they always did. Zoey was part of the ‘popular’ crowd in school. Everyone liked her because she was always friendly and nice to everyone. People kept telling her she was the most beautiful girl in school but she didn’t believe them and was always insecure about herself, she didn’t see the beauty at all.
As the hours went by and Zoey had gotten a few drinks down she needed to pee really bad. She knew Monica had told everyone not to use the bathroom upstairs but there was no way she was waiting in line for the one downstairs. She ran up the stairs before anyone could notice her and hurried to the bathroom. She did what she had to do and while washing her hands someone entered and closed the door. “Ehm HELLO, it’s busy” she said in a harsh voice and scared the already confused boy, making him grab the handle as fast and hard as he could so it broke. “Oh my God I’m so sorry” he apologised and tried to put the handle back on, but it didn’t work. They were locked in.
Zoey felt bad for scaring him, and it was really her own fault for not having locked the door in the first place. “Relax Harry, we’ll get out eventually” she tried to calm him down. “You, you know my name?” he asked confused and ran his hand through his curly hair. “Well of course I do silly, we go to the same school” she replied and couldn’t believe he actually thought she didn’t know him. The truth was that Zoey had always had a little crush on him but wasn’t able to make a move because Harry had always had a girlfriend. He was the quite and mysterious type and Zoey felt frightened by him sometimes. Not because she thought he would hurt her, but because she always felt stupid when he was around. “Well I didn’t think you knew who I was since you’ve never said a word to me” Harry finally spoke and broke the awkward silence. His words infuriated Zoey who snapped at him, “I have tried to talk to you once but you laughed at me and made me feel stupid” she almost spat the words in his face. “I laughed cos I was nervous talking to the most beautiful girl in school” Harry yelled back, and after realising they were both acting stupid they started laughing hysterically. “So. We. Didn’t. Talk. For. All. Those. Years. Cos we thought. We didn’t. Like eachother” Zoey said in between laughs and whiped away the tears forming in her eyes. “How stupid were we” Harry said and sat on the bathroom floor. “Well I hope your girlfriend doesn’t mind you spending the night with me in a bathroom” Zoey joked as she joined him on the floor. “We broke up a couple of months ago” Harry admitted and looked at his hands, “she cheated on me”.
Zoey felt a wave of happiness wash through her body making her all warm inside. She couldn’t believe Harry was finally single. “oh I’m sorry” she lied and tried to fake a sad face. “I’m not” Harry said and smiled his beautiful smile at her, showing of his cute dimples, “there’re plenty of beautiful girls out there”. Zoey played along, “Oh really. Does some of them go to our school?” she asked well knowing the answer. “Well there is this really cute brunette with green eyes I’ve had my eye on for ages” he joked and they once again started laughing. They sat in the bathroom for hours while the party continued downstairs. No one came looking for them.
Zoey liked talking to Harry, he made her feel like evey one of the words she spoke mattered. She felt it building up inside her, the heat spreading throug her body all the way to her toes and fingers. Not once did he remove his eyes from her, those beautiful green eyes that looked like they had the answers to all questions in the world. She felt him move closer and closer towards her “Zoey do you promise not to hate me no matter what happens tonight?” he asked in a serious voice, scaring her a little bit. “I promise” she whispered so low she wasn’t even sure if he’d heard her. Then he got up and sat on his knees, facing her. He moved as close to her face as he could without actually touching it. Then he placed both his hands on each of her cheeks, she felt his warm breath on her upper lip and suddenly she felt his lips touch hers. The kiss was soft at first but got more and more intense. It felt like their lips were made for each other, like the purpose of her life was to get locked in a bathroom with Harry Styles for this to happen. She felt how his hands carefully touched her neck, her shoulders and made their way down her arms. When he finally pulled away she felt like she hadn’t been breathing for several minutes, like all oxygen had escaped from her brain, and it took her a few seconds to catch her breath. “That was amazing” she said and smiled, but he didn’t reply her. He simply put his right hand behind her neck and pulled her in for another kiss. Sadly it didn’t last long as someone barged into the bathroom screaming and singing. “Oh there you are Zoey, we’ve been looking for you for hours” one of her friends said and right away understood she’d interrupted something. “I’m sorry, me and Harry were just on our way down” Zoey said as they both got up from the floor.
“I hope we can continue this on our first date tomorrow?” Harry whispered in her ear.
