Case 1357 (Harry Styles)
Cold (part one)
"C'mon, dad. I'll be fine!"
Claire begged Sandy to go to a party. She usually doesn't do that, but now everything was different.
"I said no, it's too dangerous..."- Sandy kept looking at his documents and Claire shouted.
"You can't lock me here, okay?"
Sandy seemed really hurt, he didn't want his daughter to feel like a prisoner in her life. He wanted his children to have a bright future, without fear.
"Harry, come here please!"- Sandy shouted and seconds later he appeared.
Claire rolled eyes, she didn't know how to react or what to say. Their bodies stood next to each other, almost touching, but keeping a small distance.
"I want you to take Claire to the "big" party tonight..."
"What? No!"- She interrupted him before he could finish.
Harry looked surprised, after all he wasn't that bad company and knew how to have fun, but it was Claire's choice. Everything was so wrong, he didn't expect it to be easy, but she wasn't ready to forgive him and forget about the time without him. But she didn't even try, Harry showed her that he's ready to fight and win her trust back.
"I can stay in front of the house in my car, don't worry. Nobody will find out about me."- Harry's quiet voice calmed her down and she turned to face him.
"Claire, please! Don't be such a stubborn."- Sandy stopped her before she could say something stupid.
She took a deep breath and then turned back to her father.
"Okay, dad. But he'll stay outside."
Sandy and Harry nodded and she felt free to leave the cabinet. Harry looked around awkwardly and tried to walk out of the room too, but Sandy stopped him.
"Sit, Harry. I want to talk with you."
They weren't close because Sandy had been working non-stop and Harry didn't have the chance to know him.
"You know Claire better than anyone here and that's why you're perfect for this job... thing. She's acting like a child and trying to avoid you because she's hurt. She doesn't want to admit, but I know it. You're the one who can make her feel alive again. Those five years were like a nightmare for our family and speaking of nightmares. She had terrible ones. I don't know what happened that day, but it made a huge scar inside her."- Sandy explained with teary eyes.
"I'm trying everything to be her best friend again, her brother, but she doesn't allow me. And I won't stop because I love her so much."
"I know, Harry. She loves you too, but she's such a stubborn like her mother."
They smiled slightly and Harry felt that their conversation was over and approached the door.
"I'll be with her tonight, don't worry."
"I'm sure, she'll be safe."
Three knocks on the door were enough and he opened it, green eyes widening when Harry saw her.
Harry crossed arms over his chest to cover his naked body, but it was too late.
"Uhm, I..."- She shook her head.-"I wanted to tell you that I'll be ready in twenty minutes."
"Okay, I'll be there."- He smiled because of her reaction.
With almost a foot separating them, she wanted to move closer so bad, but she shouldn't feel this way.
She turned around and went quickly to her room. A guy had never been that naked around her. It excited her a little and she decided to put provocative makeup, but still looking natural. She ended up wearing dark blue jeans and a red tunic. Her hair was up in a ponytail, but she hated it so much. It was her mother's image for perfect.
Someone knocked on the door and stopped her thoughts, Claire grabbed her cardigan and opened it.
"Are you ready because it's ..."
"Yeah!"- Claire interrupted Harry and smiled.
He didn't say anything else, but you could tell that he was satisfied with the way she looked.
"Where's this car from?"- She asked, breaking the awkward silence, and entered the car.
"Victor bought it today morning. It's not the best, but it'll help me to drive you around."
The fact that Harry called his father- Victor, made Claire really worried. She was complaining all the time about her life, but never asked him about his. She looked down and smiled, thinking that he'll be "driving her around". It felt nice to know that someone's there for her.
