7. This Can't Be Good

 

*louis’ pov*

“what do you say boys, Masters round 2 next weekend?” I said stumbling out of the elevator, the boys following close behind. We had decided to go back to my apartment to wind down a bit from our clubbing high. We had all had a bit of a rough night after Harry left, it’s almost like we can’t have as much fun when we’re not all together as a group. It doesn’t feel right when one of the lads are missing that’s for sure.

“so it looks like Zayn picked up at the club?” Liam said as he nudged Zayn. A huge smile swept across Zayn’s face.

“come on lads, I ran into Perrie, remember her?”

“yeah yeah sure…and?” I winked.

“and she’s a nice girl. We’re meeting up for lunch next week”

“well we’re happy for you Zayn, let us know yeah”

“of course Lou, now come on open the door. I need to pee!” 

I fiddled with the keys before finding the right one and opened the door. The TV was on and it looked like Harry was up. Zayn bolted to the bathroom and Niall and Liam grabbed a glass of water. I walked closer to the couch to find Jas fast asleep on Harry’s lap.

“it’s ok lads false alarm.. this can’t be good” Zayn said emerging from the hallway looking at the couch.

“What do you mean Zayn?” I asked

“Harry has to be a bit more careful about the way he acts around her, she has a boyfriend back home. Harry is going to be shattered”

“how do you know this?” Liam asked sipping his water.

“she told me”

“I am so not going to tell Haz, I’ll leave that up to you Zayn” I said patting Zayn on the shoulder

“I agree with Lou” Niall said.

“Fine, I’ll do it tomorrow ok. Anyway I’m going to go now. It’s almost 4am, lucky it’s  the weekend tomorrow! Bye guys”

*Harry’s POV*

I am seriously going to buy a quieter kettle for Louis! The sound of the whistling kettle was enough to wake me up. Jas was still fast asleep on my lap. I gently lifted up her head and wriggled out from the couch.

Turns out it was Zayn making a tea

“Good morning sunshine”

“morning, what are you doing here early?” I asked confused

“can we go someplace private, we need to talk”

“uh yeah I guess” I followed Zayn to my bedroom where he looked a bit anxious. “what’s up zayn?”

“Look Harry, there is no easy way to put this so I’m just going to say it. You need to back off a bit on Jas. Don’t you think you’re coming onto her a bit strong?”

“What are you saying Zayn?” I said rubbing my eyes, trying to make sense of what he was getting at.

“We all know you’ve got a little crush on her but don’t always be that confident that she feels the same way. I mean we’re all going to support you but we’re also going to tell you when things aren’t right.”

“And what makes you think that this isn’t right?”

“She has a boyfriend.”

“Really?” I didn’t know what to think. Who am I kidding she’s gorgeous it was bound to happen.

“I’m sorry Haz, I know you like her, there’s no doubt about that but maybe it’s too early for anything to become serious”

“Look Zayn I know I have a habit of falling too hard and too fast but this is different, I mean I know we’ve only known her for a day give or take but she’s different and it’s a good different, sure I need to get to know her a bit better but I know I’ve got a chance. She wouldn’t of come here if she didn’t want some time away from her boyfriend, don’t you think? Normally you can tell when something isn’t going to turn out and I’m not getting any danger signs coming at me. The boyfriend is not a problem at the moment. Jas didn’t even mention having a boyfriend when we talked so that’s gotta say something in itself right? Really which boyfriend would let his girlfriend travel around the world to stay with 5 guys she’s never met before. He’s got a motive. There’s something going on and she’s the one that’s going to get hurt, that guy is not even going to care and I don’t know about you but I don’t want that for her. I’ll be the one who is going to be there for her, I don’t care whether it’s as her friend or even more than that. It’s not going to be the easiest thing to watch her with some other guy but I have to let her know there is better guys out there”

“and you’re that better guy?”

“like you said it’s too early to tell but honestly Zayn, yeah I think I could be if she gave me the chance to prove it”

“Alright man, looks like you know what you’re doing I just wanted to give you a heads up. Just take it easy though please”

- 2 weeks later –

A lot has happened in the 2 weeks I’ve been here. Liam and Danielle were reunited after spending a month away from each other, Louis and Eleanor had gone to Doncaster for the week, Niall got his braces on and Zayn has started to see Perrie more often. Things were really working out for everyone. And Harry, well Harry and I have gotten a lot more closer. He’s become one of my best friends. I can’t believe how well we’ve gotten along with each other in the last two weeks. As for me, Caleb has been texting me less. I always send him a goodnight message but his replies have become a lot shorter and he won’t even call me back. Is this some sort of joke?

We all figured out that as much as I wanted to stay with each of the boys it just wasn’t practical. They would have had to rearrange everything just for me for a night so I stayed with Harry and Louis. Although I did spend a night at Niall’s, only because I was home alone and there was a lot of thunder so I stayed at Niall’s so I wasn’t alone.

My phone started to ring during the middle of the night.

“hello?” I answered in a tired voice

“Jasmine? It’s your mum, how are you darling?”

“hi mum, I’m alright. What are you doing calling at 2am?”

“oh is it 2? I’m so sorry. Trust your brother to sort out the time zones. Anyway I got a call from your aunty Tracey the other day and I told her you were overseas and you know we talked and she ended up telling me that you can do an exchange student or temporary uni placement in the uk.”

My aunty Tracey was a careers teacher at one of the schools back home, and she was always upset that I didn’t go straight to university just like all of my other cousins and my brother. She constantly nagged saying that ‘it’s my future that I’m throwing away’ and all that, but when someone doesn’t know what they want to study at university it always becomes ten times harder when the choice has to be made.

“look mum, tell her thank you but I don’t want to go back to school just yet.”

“I know honey but would you just think about it?”

“but I’m only here for another 2 weeks and then I’m gone”

“how is it by the way? Are the boys treating you well?”

“of course they are! They’re all amazing and so kind and welcoming.”

“that’s good. This is just an idea but what if I told you that you could stay longer?”

I had no idea what my mum was up to. For some strange reason I think she was trying to keep me away from Caleb after what happened between us when we were first going out, but this seemed a bit low, even for my mum.

“I would say thank you and you’re the best mum but I’m not sure. I’m really missing you guys at home and Caleb as well. How long are you talking about?”

“I know you don’t want to hear this but just think about the opportunities whilst you’re over there. You can do a foreign exchange program, where you go back to school or even a work placement and you can stay longer. You sound like you’re having so much fun.”

“you’re not going to let this go aren’t you? Uh fine, I’ll think about it”

“alright that’s what I wanted to hear. You’ve got so much possibilities nowadays that I never got so I want you to make the most of it. You’ll love it. Any way I have to go now darling. I love you and just think about what I said please?”

“ok, love you too mum. Bye”

*Harry’s POV*

Since Louis was gone and he’d normally make breakfast for us I decided to give it a try and surprise Jas. Considering I didn’t cook often I could tell this was going to be a different breakfast to what we were used to. The only think I knew how to cook was pancakes so I started on making the batter.

I had listened to Zayn’s advice he gave me a couple of weeks back and decided to ease off a bit. Since then Jas and I have gotten along really well, we’ve been going out together more often as friends though but it’s just been us two and it’s been amazing. We understand each other’s sense of humour and we strangely think alike.  Everything sort of came naturally when I was with her, the conversations and everything. I didn’t feel like I had to be “Harry Styles from One Direction”, I could be just 18 year old Harry. Needless to say my feelings for her have gradually become stronger but the problem was she really didn’t give anything away; no hints or anything that she felt the same way which what I was afraid of but it still could be too early to tell.

I heard her footsteps come from the hallway. By now I had almost finished cooking the pancakes and started to serve them on the plate with strawberries which was her favourite.

“just in time, good morning sleepy head”

“what’s this?”

“breakfast for you Miss Jas, pancakes with strawberries for a lovely lady.” I said bowing and pulling out the chair for her.

She stood in front of the chair and curtseyed before siting.

“thank you good Sir” she giggled.  It was these sort of things that we could joke around and be idiots around each other that I liked the most.

“what’s the occasion mister?”

“what do you mean?”

“I mean, Louis has been away for the past week, he’s about to come back and this is the first time you’ve made me breakfast”

“does a guy need a reason to make his temporary roommate breakfast in the morning?” I said raising an eyebrow

“oh speaking of temporary, my mum called me early in the morning and we were talking. Um, what do you think of the idea that I start going to uni or start a work placement over here?”

“I think it’s a great idea! Wait? Doesn’t that mean…”

“Harry it means that I’m allowed to stay a bit longer if I do overseas schooling or work. Of course I’ll talk to the rest of the boys when they’re here and especially because I’ll need help trying to find a place to stay”

“woah woah woah….. woah! You aren’t going to find a new place because you’re staying with us”

“Harry I couldn’t, I’ve been here for a while and I’m so thankful that you let me into your home but I couldn’t expect you to put up with me for a lot longer. I don’t want to be a pain to you and Louis”

“come on Jas, you’ve seen who I live with, you are the furthest thing from a pain. We love your company.”

“are you sure?”

“positive”

“thank you Harry” she said pulling me into a hug. “just so you know this isn’t the final decision, I just have to think about it”

I nodded. We got off topic and started talking about other random things. I was still a bit curious of the time when she was feeling sick at the club.

“jas?”

“yes Harry”

“you know a couple of weeks ago when you told me not to say ‘that word’ at the club. What did you mean?”

Her face totally changed from a huge smile to a distressed look in her eye. I had hit a nerve. It almost looked like she was about to start crying.

“I’m sorry Jas , I didn’t mean to” I said as she stood up ready to walk away.

“no, no it’s alright. Umm can we please talk about this another time, I’ll tell you when I’m ready, please just give me a bit of time, it’s already difficult as it is.”

This time she actually did walk off, leaving me with the dishes.

Nice one Harry! I thought. I always blew it like this, I guess she’ll tell me in her own time again. I just hoped it wouldn’t be that bad that she’d want to leave.
