9. The Right Thing For Me

 

1 week later

*Louis POV*

We all thought it was great that Jas had stayed longer, she was doing something she enjoyed and was going to end up with a career that she was enthusiastic about. As far as we knew, her mum approved of her staying longer. As for her boyfriend, well that took a lot longer to try and get him to come around. Jas never spoke of it, but we could hear it. The late night arguments over the phone that would end in her crying herself to sleep. She put on a brave front though.

 

*Jas's POV*

"I can't believe we are going through this again Caleb! I'm trying to make a better life for myself here, I've got the  motivation to make something out of my life! I would have thought you out of all people would be happy for me!"

"Well you know what, stay there! Stay there as long as you like! Why would I care?", his voice was getting louder over the phone.

"Caleb don't be like that!"

"Be like what?! I see how it is,  I'll move on with my life and you move on with yours!"

"But I'm not moving on! This is a great opportunity for me at the moment. If you were in the same situation I'd stand by any decision you made because it's making you happy."

"Fine stay as long as you want!" he yelled

"I can’t believe you!" I was starting to get angry. He never supported me when I wanted to do something for myself. He thought I was being selfish.

He was silent on the other side of the phone, then the dial tone. He hung up on me!

 

*Harry's POV*

I heard the yelling from my room. They were at it again. Jas deserves better than that. He can't accept that she wants to sort her life out. She was going to be in a bad mood so I knew just the thing to cheer her up.

 

"A carnival? Really Harry? It's cold outside"

"Come on, it'll be fun. Just something to take your mind off everything. What do you say?"

She exhaled loudly

"Uhhhh, fine" she smiled. "I'm driving though"

"what ever you want bub"

I wasn't too keen on the rollercoasters so we steered clear from them. We were now on the Ferris Wheel, the view from up here was amazing. The Ferris Wheel jolted and we were stuck at the very top, the carnival overlooked the pier. The look on her face had changed, I could tell now that she was enjoying herself and not worrying about the boyfriend.

"Isn't that the most beautiful thing you have ever seen?" she said softly.

"The second most beautiful" I uttered quietly so she could completely hear, I think she did though, a small smile started to form and she slightly blushed. We were quiet for a few seconds, not sure of where to go from there. Luckily she did though, she wriggled closer to me and cuddled into me. I put my arm around her and we looked out to the ocean.

 

*Jas' POV*

My head was resting against his chest, I could feel his heat beat fast. I think he noticed that I heard what he whispered. It was sweet of him to say that.  I don't know but there was something about Harry that made me feel so comfortable and natural to be around. Conversations were easy, no matter how ridiculous they sounded, especially after that time when were talking for over an hour on whether long or short pasta was better. I think it was easy to say that I had a soft spot for Harry. I knew it was wrong, after all I was in a relationship but…

My phone started to ring. I sat up straight in the seat and looked at the screen. It was Caleb.  I decided to ignore it. The moment it stopped ringing, it would start again. I didn't particularly want to answer the phone, especially in front of Harry. I didn’t want him to hear us argue yet again. Caleb wouldn't give up, this was the fourth time he tried to ring me.  After I ignored it the first time I got a text from Caleb.

"Hey babe, look I'm sorry for getting upset, that was selfish of me. It's seems like you're busy for whatever reason, I hope you're not mad at me. Call me tonight and we'll sort stuff out."

Again, Caleb was not himself. The way he texted me was completely different to the way he use to text me. No "xx" not even an "I love you" .

 

To make it seem that I wasn't a complete buzz kill I put my phone away and sat close to Harry, I rested my head on his shoulders. All the arguing was taking  toll on me.

"Thanks Harry" I said

"For what?"

"For being patient, for trying to cheer me up, just for everything."

By now Harry was  fiddling with his fingers. He reached out his hand and grabbed my hand. He laced his fingers with mine.

 

*Harry's POV*

It was perfect, I didn't want to change a thing about this moment, well a part from the boyfriend calling every two seconds. The moment I grabbed her hand, she held mine tighter. This was the perfect opportunity to tell her how I felt. As soon I started to talk the Ferris Wheel jolted yet again and we started to move back to the ground. She was laughing so much because I had jumped when the wheel started to move again.

 

"Jas, can I ask you something?" I knew I had blown the chance trying to tell her how I feel right now so I figured I’d try to sort out what's the deal with her boyfriend.

"yeah anything Harry"

I struggled to put the words together

"I can hear you every night cry yourself to sleep, Louis and I know you fight with him almost every night. It's not fair on you, like we care about you, we hate seeing you like that.  Why is it always up to you to apologise to him? I mean, you're not the one causing the drama"

She was quiet for a few seconds.

"It just works out better that way"

 

By now we had reached the bottom and Jas quickly walked off, leaving me in the seat. I ran to catch up with her. She had tears in her eyes.

"Jas I'm so sorry"

"No you're right Harry, why is it always up to me? I'm doing my best trying to make everyone happy that I'm not even caring what's best for me."

I grabbed her and pulled her into a hug. I could feel her tears soak through my shirt.

"You deserve better than that" I whispered and kissed her on her head.

"Can we go home? I'm just so tired "

"Anything you want Jas"

 

*LOUIS POV*

The door swung open, Jas was fast-paced walking to her room. Harry followed much slower. He threw his keys on to the bench and collapsed onto the couch next to me.

"Eventful day?" I asked.

"Why am I so stupid Louis?"

"Ahh my dear young Haz that's the many questions that have stumped me over the years like why is the sky blue or how can Zayn's quiff stand like that on a windy day regardless of how much hair product he puts in ?"

"Lou I'm serious. It was the perfect moment, I could have gone for it but I didn't! it's just frustrating me, I want to tell her but I don't know how. What's wrong with me Lou?"

"Harry nothing's wrong with you. It's really one of those moments where you have to swallow your pride and just go for it. You may get hurt, you may not, it's just one of those risks you have to take. Before I told El how I felt I had gone through so many scenarios where she would just laugh in my face and turn the other way"

"oh that's real helpful Lou"

"listen, but if I didn't take that chance, spare myself for just that little bit of humiliation then I would have her now. We wouldn't be together and I wouldn't be as happy as I am now. It's alright that you haven't told her yet. You might have thought it was the right moment but you weren't really ready. It'll come to you, trust me"

 

*Jas's POV*

I had fallen asleep straight away and forgot to call Caleb. The next day I tried and tried. He's so predictable! Oh yeah call me babe, I called five times and no answer. That's so typical of him. 

 

I was meeting Danielle and Eleanor for the first time. They were going to go out with Liam and Louis later on in the day but they stayed over for lunch. I had just finished setting the table, Louis had cooked lunch for us. Harry was out for the day with Niall and Zayn so it just us 5 for lunch. I put the last plate down and there was a knock on the door.

"It's alright Jas, I'll get it" Louis said running to the door.  "Hey babe, how are you?" he said kissing Eleanor. Eleanor walked in, waved at me with a smile and put her bag down.

"Hi, I'm Eleanor it's so nice to meet you" she said hugging me.

I could hear Louis at the door still, "Dani!" he yelled and kissed Danielle on the cheek.

"What no kiss for me?" Liam said jokingly. The both walked inside and walked up to me. Liam kissed me on the cheek.

"How are you going Jas? This is Danielle, Danielle this is Jas, you girls spoke over the phone that one time"

"I remember Liam, it's nice to finally meet you. We’ve heard great things about you" Danielle said hugging me.

Louis and Liam started talking leaving us girls alone .

Danielle and Eleanor were so pretty, I on the other hand looked like a potato.  We all got along  which was great and we talked over lunch. After lunch the boys went for a walk to see if the boys were back, leaving us girls to mingle.

"so how long have you been here for?" Eleanor said sipping on her wine.

"about 2-3 months now, the boys have been so great and welcoming. They've really made me feel at home" I said.

We chatted for what seemed to be a long time and the boys still hadn't returned yet. We had suddenly become on the topic of Caleb. I told the girls of the little situation I was in with him not being totally happy about me staying. 

"I still love him, that hasn’t changed but I'm wondering if he feels the same way. Like he doesn't say I love you and all that any more, he's just really blunt and quick to finish talking to me."

"I'd keep an eye on it hun, when did you notice this?"

"like a couple months before I left, he has been saying it less and less and I want to trust him, I do but I don't know if I can anymore. It's not one of those this I want to talk about over Skype or phone you know?... How do you deal being away from them when they're on tour?"

"it's not easy, let me tell you!" Danielle said

"It's definitely the hardest part, I mean we still have phone calls and that but it's not the same." Eleanor continued.

"We both know that they'll be back soon but we cherish these moments when we're with them. We make the most of the time we have together because before you know it they're off again."

They could see I was upset and confused about the whole Caleb situation

"it's alright Jas I'm sure it'll all work out" they both said reassuringly.

 

We could hear the front door unlock and turn open. Harry walked in. Liam and Louis followed a few seconds later. For some reason I couldn't take my eyes off him. He saw me semi-staring and cheekily winked at me. The girls saw that too.

"Forget about the boyfriend what's going on with you and Harry?" Eleanor said excitedly.

"What? Nothing" … they both gave me a look

"nothing I swear" I said slightly blushing

"Well a little birdy told me that Harry's got a little crush on you?" Danielle said.

"Dani what are you on about, I think it's more than a little crush, come on did you not just see the way he looked at her. Look Jas, we've never seen Harry this keen about a girl before, you've done something to him. And it's a good something."

"Really, I didn't think of it to be like that"

"So do you like him?"

"El you can't just ask that she has a boyfriend!"

I took a while to answer, no doubt I had the smallest feeling for him. Like I said before everything came naturally. The idea of  Harry and I as a couple seemed new to me, not like I haven't daydreamed about it back at home like all girls do, but I never thought a member of my favourite boy band could ever genuinely like me like that.  I felt so stupid, so all the hand holding and kisses on the head that was a "like like crush like" thing? It's so hard to tell especially when Harry was labelled as 'the flirt'.

 

"Dani" Liam yelled,

"Yeah babe?!" she answered

"time to go!"

"Alright we'll be there in a minute!" Danielle turned to me "Sorry darling but we have to go, but if you ever need anything you can always give me a call."

"Thanks Danielle" I said giving her a hug.

"We'll definitely have to organise a girls day out, but like Dani said give us call whenever. And don't worry about Harry, we can tell that you're a little confused at the moment but you're a smart girl and you'll soon figure out what is best for you. "

"I'll keep that in mind, thanks Eleanor" I said also giving her a hug

"anytime, again it is so nice to have finally met you. I'll get Louis to give you my number. Oh and if we don't get to see you before then, we'll see you new years. Not long now! It's going to be epic! "

I walked the girls to the door where Louis and Liam were talking outside. Something about an upcoming tour but I didn't hear properly. I waved to the Danielle and Eleanor as they walked hand-in-hand with their boys.

 

I really missed being able to do that. The more I thought about it the more I realised I definitely had feelings for Harry. I felt extremely guilty though. As much as Caleb was being a total prick about the situation, I still loved him .
