Harrison’s POV

Smooth dude smooth. You look good. You could've just told her she looked beautiful, but no you were a pussy about it.

'Did you kiss her?'

I caught Tom's reflection in my rear-view mirror and noticed he'd perked up a bit.

'Stopped singing have we?'

As I threw my jacket onto the passenger seat a waft of the fragrance she'd had on filled the space around me. I'd given my jacket to her earlier to warm her up and just as I thought, she looked sexy as hell in it.

Shaking those thought from my head I turned on the ignition and backed out of the driveway.

'I can start again if you like?'

I ignored Tom's comment and focused on the road. That didn't stop him from talking though.

'I'm guessing that means you didn't make a move.'

'I've already told you; she clearly only sees me as a friend. Plus, I don't stand a chance with a girl like her.'

'Well you're obviously fuckin blind and deaf. That girl likes you and not as just a friend! Whether she knows she does or not, I don't know. Every guy at that party had eyes on her tonight and she was only interested in messing with you.'

From the sounds it she'd previously spent her life in England oblivious to the fact that she's beautiful. I secretly wondered if it's because of this twin sister she mentioned earlier.

This was the thing with Evie. I'm so intrigued by her.

She hardly ever talks about her life back home but when she does it's like snippets of a bigger story. It's obvious she's been through something horrible or why else would she move to another country and not mention anything about her parents?

I didn't want to push her to talk about it though. I just hoped at some point she would trust me enough to confide in me.

'You know you're going to have to make a move on her soon or tell the guys at school to back off because otherwise they'll be all over her like a rash.'

He did have a point. I wanted to tell every guy tonight who even dared to glance at her to back the fuck off.

The thing was if I'm being honest, Eve scares me.

I've never felt this way about a girl before. Sure, I've dated but I've never cared enough about one to make them my girlfriend.

There's something about being around Evie that feels different though and it's only been a fucking week.

I swear sometimes it's like she's reading my mind. She'll say something and it takes me back with how accurate it is. I've decided I need to cut back on thinking about her so much until I can confirm whether she's got superpowers or not.

When I locked eyes on her that first day when she walked into me, she literally took my breath away.

She was literally the most stunning girl I'd ever seen in my life. Her sky-blue eyes were mesmerising and her long wavy brunette hair made me want to run my fingers through it.

I blatantly checked her out but she was oblivious to the whole thing. I went away from that first conversation thinking I'd made the whole thing up. The only proof I had was her art book and the rumours of a new student going round.

Then when she strolled up to our table at lunch like it was no fucking big deal, I knew she was special.

I had to go about this the right way though. I didn't want to make a move on her if it turns out she only likes me as a friend. I couldn't risk scaring her away. For now, I just had to keep on trying to spend as much time with her as I could.

I'd panicked that I'd ruined it tonight. For most girls Amber clinging onto me earlier would've put them off but thankfully Evie thought it was funny. She even managed to make Amber look like the dumbass that she is.

Tom was right though. I needed to make it clear to the guys in the school not to touch her.

I wasn't too concerned though. As cliché as it sounds, I'm friends with a lot of the guys at my school, even the lower years and they wouldn't want to feel the wrath of me. It wasn't too hard with the soccer team. One look from Tom and I and they all backed off.

I just had to come up with a way to hang out with her alone that didn't look like a date. Until then I guess I'd have to share her.


Finally, we have Harrison's POV! I've wanted to do his own chapter for a while and I had so much fun writing it!

I don't know if I'm going to make it a regular thing but every now and again and then I might slip one in.

I hope you're enjoying the story so far!
