Loving my boyfriend's best friend was one of the greatest feelings I had always wanted to get rid of. Harry never looked at me the way Shawn did but as a sister and a friend. So I decided to stick to that but every time I look at him, I'm unable to control these strange feelings I have for him. I know it's wrong to have these feelings for him but honestly, he was the first boy I would ever love. Shawn was second. I thought Harry leaving for England will help matters but now he's back and I know the worst is bound to happen.

(Others are minor characters)
We were at the airport, Shawn and I, waiting for Harry. Shawn made a call, waving his hands to signify to Harry where ever he was. Standing in the middle of the airport, I was mixed with both anxiety and fear. The fear of losing myself to him. It's been three years since I last saw Harry. Would everything still be the same as before or he will see me more as a woman? Harry has never loved a girl or has either been in a relationship. He believes they aren't worth it. Harry was far different from Shawn. Harry was a player or should I still say he is? I don't know. Who knows maybe he's changed. Shawn wasn't like him. He was only crazy about one person and that's me, no one else. I like Shawn. He always found ways to please me and make me love him. He was good at such things but there was no way he could beat Harry in the way I feel for him. Love can't be bought. Many times...I had wanted to break up with Shawn. I felt it was wrong thinking about Harry and also be in a relationship with his best friend. It was completely wrong but Shawn never gave me a chance to speak about issues like this. I never told him I was in love with Harry. It will drive him mad and I know he won't get over it. NEVER. But still, he knew I didn't love him that much but he always thought we would work out. Shawn will never let me go. My mind drifts from these thoughts by Shawn's voice. Harry was already here and my heart feels so cloudy with rainbows as he walks towards us. I was breathing taking by his look.
"Bro!" Harry gave Shawn a side hug immediately he sighted him.
"You got muscles now!" Shawn teased.
"And you got fatter." Harry teased too.
"Well my babe here has been feeding me to the fullest," Shawn smirked, both eyes diverting to me. It was so weird. Harry looked at me closely. What has changed in me? That was left for him to say. The way he looked at me got me confused. I know I was meant to do all those 'long time greetings' but I don't know why my lips are just left plastered but I gotta say, Harry, is looking good. His eyes zoom down to my chest and I was left confused. What was he looking at?
"Wow! She's got bigger breasts!" Harry teased me. I felt really uncomfortable. I used both my palms to cover my breasts even when they were covered with clothes. It felt like he could see inside my body.
"What the..." I almost cursed loudly.
"Harry, we're in the public." I raised both my arms in the air. I didn't quickly realize I had freed my breasts. His eyes went over there again, making me quickly wrap it up with my hands.
They both laughed at me like I was a fool or something. Boys can be weird.
"Okay, sorry. You just got sexier. If that should suit you better." Harry said, putting his hand on my arms as we walked back to where Shawn parked his car. Right now, those emotions were freed. It felt like old times when we were friends. But Harry will never be a friend to me. He's more than that.
"Hahaha. Very funny Harry." I forgot Harry loved to tease me so much back in high school. It was an experience I shouldn't have forgotten.
I could deeply remember when Harry played a prank on me by sending me a love letter anonymously into my locker when he knew no guy has ever asked me out yet. There I was feeling so excited that there was someone out there that had feelings for me. The most foolish part was me blushing when I told them about the love letters that blew me away. Then the foolish Mr. jerk face finally confessed that it was all a prank that he played and I shouldn't keep my hopes up. I was dumbstruck!
We kept on arguing and teasing each other even when we entered the car. Shawn drove while Harry and I sat at the back seat. Shawn laughed away while I was so irritated by Harry's jokes.
"I swear If you ever say that again, I'll make sure you never fuck a girl again." I spat out. I can't believe Harry was asking if I have been taking sex lessons by watching porn videos. Who asks that?!
Shawn just loved seeing us argue. We could spend the whole day finding out who's better between Harry and me.
We got inside the house. Shawn assisted Harry in carrying his luggage.
"Final question, Shawn who's hotter between Harry and me?" I asked, with my right hand at my waist. We've been arguing all the way since we met at the airport. I have to say, I really miss this feeling.
"Shawn wouldn't tell the truth because he's your boyfriend. We both know who is and that person is only me." Harry said, winking at me.
I roll my eyes feeling irritated.
Harry took out a bottle of beer from the fridge pouring into three glasses.
"To friendship." He said and we cheered.
I stared at him as he gulped in his drink. There was a lot I wished to do when I saw him at the airport. Dirty thoughts took over my mind at that moment. I just don't know how we became friends and why he looked at me differently and acted differently around me. Wasn't I pretty enough?
I woke up in the morning, letting out a loud yawn. I looked to my left but couldn't find Shawn next to me. I knew I got drunk last night and Shawn brought me to bed. Hope I didn't do anything stupid or say something crazy.I entered into the kitchen, seeing Harry frying eggs. Just like old times. Seeing him here made it feel like the missing piece was finally back in my life."Shawn isn't home. Had something urgent to do. So it's just you and prince charming." Harry smiled, his eyes still on the eggs."I don't see a crown." I snorted, opening up the cupboard to take some cereals. Gosh, I'm too short to take this. I didn't know my ass was fully visible as i tried reaching for the cereal. I was wearing a hoodie that covered my ass a little. I totally forgot Harry was now here with us.Harry just kept on clearing his throat and it made me really upset and confused. I was even expecting him to help me ou
Elena's POVI went to hang around the corner, getting drunk with a bottle of vodka in my hands. I just want Harry out of my head. I really need to stop thinking about him before it all turns wrong. I love Shawn so much and I wouldn't ruin it now.I didn't know when a cold hand touched and pulled me from where I stood. I was so drunk and everything was so muzzy but that scent couldn't deceive me. It was from Harry."Harry, I told you to stay away from me. I don't want to talk to you." I said, almost trippinHarry's POVEver since we had that conversation, Elena has been on my mind. I was confused. Why would she want me to stay away from her? I know she's going through a lot. Her mom was getting divorced. I thought that was it but the look in her eyes told me there was something else.I searched everywhere for her. I wanted us to tal
Elena's POVI lied about not knowing about what I said last night and also kissing him. It was my worst mistake and it's never going to happen again. So what I just need to do is to act like nothing ever happened. That what's best.My friend Anna drove me to her place. Shawn and Harry were picking us soon. Getting ready for bikinis! My friend searches her closet for the right bikini wear but still asking questions and really made me uncomfortable."So, you kissed him." She frowned, picking some clothes out of her closet."As I said, I was drunk," I explained it again."But you loved every part of it right?" She stared at me in the eyes trying to read my mind."N...N...uh... Stop staring at me like a zombie." It felt so weird with the way she stared into my eyes."Trying to change the subject uh?" She winked at me."No
Elena'sPOVI was in the bathroom changing my clothes. Anna couldn't wait for me because I was so slow. She said she didn't want to miss the fun. How unfriendly. As I finished changing into my bikini, the door creaked open. I thought it was the ladies' since it was a female bathroom so I didn't pay attention to it. Then suddenly someone banged
Elena's POVI sat down next to Shawn, still glaring at Harry. Shawn poured kisses on my cheeks, asking me where I was."Bathroom," I whispered but my eyes were at Harry who was now with two hot girls in bikini dying for his gorgeous face. It makes me angrier and part of me still asks me why I'm so mad right now but I just brush it off.He was now kissing one of the girls, grabbing her butt like mashed potatoes. It was just so irritating. His eyes caught me staring. I quickly look away before I get myself into trouble.He chuckled and it irritated me. Did he think I was jealous? Why..why would I even be?Then I looked back at him, giving that, 'don't even think about it' but all that he could do to reply to me was sucking that girl's lips. I flinched, standing up in rage. I don't even know why I stood up screaming. Everyone looked at me like I was some fool once again. This has to
Harry's POVI wasn't just going to be that stupid to fall for Damien's trap. I was too smart for that. All Damien wants is to have his revenge by making Shawn and I separate. Shawn and I have been friends since childhood. Our families were close friends. Well, Shawn and I met Elena in fifth grade. The first day I set my eyes on her, I felt a spark going through my body. I was so little then so I never knew what it meant so I let the feeling pass away. Shawn confessed to me that he had a huge crush on her. I could never tell him I felt that way too. So I pushed those feelings away. Knowing that my heart belongs to only one person, I decided not to fall for anyone else except Elena. Elena was just so beautiful. Her eyes....when I look at her, I'm totally blown away. Sometimes when she feels cold, I wish I could just warm her up but Shawn was always one step ahead of me. It was just so hard for me to confess my feelings to Elena. Shawn was always in the way. After
Elena's POVWe had just come out of five houses. Shawn's friend's place but we still didn't find him. I was getting more worried since Shawn never picked his call and Harry was getting fed up but all I could care about right now is Shawn."Let's go back home. It's late and it isn't safe here." Harry tried convincing me but I didn't listen to him. I started the car and decided to call Anna maybe she would know where he was."Hey, Anna, Have you perhaps seen Shawn? He isn't home yet." I hoped she did."N...no. not at all. Is everything okay?" She stammered."Yeah, I'm just worried. Are you okay? You seem.... nervous." I asked, a little concerned."Um...I gotta go." Anna hung up."What was that?" I murmured to myself confusingly but I brush the weird thought away."What did she say?" Harry asked.
Anna's POVWhen I saw Shawn at the club where we all normally hang out, I was so surprised. I looked around but there was no sight of Elena and Harry. Did he come here alone because if it's what I think it is, then things just got better! I want to tell him everything. How I feel about him. All the years, I've only loved Shawn, not the way Elena does. Elena just used Shawn as a distraction. She's not what's best for him, I am.I just want Shawn to look at me, kiss me, touch me, and make me feel alive. Just look at me for once Shawn."Hey." I sat down next to him, trying to get his attention. He diverted his eyes from his drink, looking at me."I told you to stay away from me, Elena. Why do you keep following me around?" Shawn looked away, pouring a drink into his glass."Actually, it's Anna," I say, feeling a little disappointed."Oh." He said, not like he really cared but
