Strong : Sequel to Take Me Home ~~~A Harry Styles Love Story
Taylor and Harry are at an all-time low. The passion that was once between them is not what it used to be. Every day for them is a day of survival for their marriage. Darcy, now 16, is unaware of it all. When a life-changing event happens to her, will it bring them closer together or tear them apart?
To understand this story, read Take Me Home~ A Harry Styles Love Story
Perrieâ€™s words have haunted my thoughts since that dayâ€”the day Brittany was born which also happened to be my wedding day. They follow me around every waking moment of my life to the point where I feel suffocated and trapped by such a fantasy phrase.
Because I wish it was true.
We are so far from a perfect family. No one knows though. And they donâ€™t need to. Itâ€™s personal. Harry and I arenâ€™t the same. The spark that once shined between us is slowly distinguishing to nothing. Heâ€™s always out doing something with work. And when heâ€™s home, if heâ€™s home, we find ourselves arguing. We try to relight that once burning passion by being intimate, but it always ends with awkward silence. Like a one-night stand every time. Itâ€™s been like that for almost three years now.
Every day is a struggle when living under Harry Styles shadow. Me, I have to be the perfect trophy wife it seems. Nowadays itâ€™s hard to tell what affection he shows towards me is real. A simple peck on the cheek or an â€œI love youâ€. Whatâ€™s the meaning behind it?
I always stare at our wedding photo. Our smiles are so real. You can practically see the pure love oozing from one another. I envy that couple. For thatâ€™s not what we are anymore.
I find myself staring at it once again. His arms wrapped around my waist. The way heâ€™s smiling down at me and Iâ€™m looking up at him. That was a day Iâ€™ll never forget for as long as I live.
The house phone rings and I wander over to it. No one is home besides the baby who is taking her afternoon nap.
â€œHello?â€ I say cheerily to try and hide the pain that lingers within my heart.
â€œHey Tay-Tay!â€ El chirps. â€œWant to go to the show tonight? The guys are performing at the O2.â€
â€œI know. I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ll be going.â€
â€œWhat? Why not?â€ She whines.
â€œIâ€™m kind of tired and Brittanyâ€™s still asleep and Darcy will be home any minute andâ€”â€œ
â€œTaylor Styles, â€œShe says defiantly. I cringe at the use of my last name. The good feeling that was once behind it is gone. â€œDarcy will probably be at a friendsâ€™ house like usual. And Brittany can play with Sarah like always. Plus, you havenâ€™t been to a concert in months and you love them! I donâ€™t understand why youâ€™ve been acting this way.â€
â€œItâ€™s a long story.â€ I mumble.
â€œWell, long story or not youâ€™re coming. Harry would love to see you there. Iâ€™ll be at your house by five. Love you!â€ The line goes dead and Iâ€™m left standing in the kitchen alone. The past creeps up on me and flashbacks race past my eyes. I twist my engagement ring around my finger wondering if the feelings behind it are still there. Maybe Iâ€™m just over analyzing things. Maybe he still really does love me and my stubbornness is covering the truth. Maybe there is still hope for us, for our marriage. I think about it and the more I do, I realize just how wrong I am. Who am I kidding? Only a perfect family could resolve their issues and live happily ever after.
And we are not perfect.
