What Are The Odds

Estrella is just a regular teenage girl that is lusting over Harry Styles from the boy band One Direction. She's a realist and knows that she would never get the chance but little did she know that fate would be on her side. She bumps into Harry at the mall but doesn't confess to knowing who he is. Will she tell him the truth about knowing who he is and will she tell him about her troubled past in order to let their relationship bloom.


18. FBI is on the way.


Estrella’s P.O.V

“It’s okay Estrella. Let it all out it’s okay.”

I couldn’t stop sobbing. GET A GRIP ESTRELLA! Harry was being nothing but kind letting me sob all over his nice shirt. Slowly but surely I was starting to come back from my breakdown.

“Come on lets go sit down. I’ll get you some tissues.”

I sat down starting to get my breathing back to its normal pace.

“I’m so sorry, that song just gets to me.”

“You don’t have to apologize to me. Do you want to talk about it?”

I honestly just can’t find it in me to dish out all of my past to him. I feel bad about it since I know almost everything about him but I just have to protect myself right now and tell him when I believe the time is right and I doubt the first date is the right timing for all of my skeletons to come out of the closet.

“No offense Harry but it’s just too deep to tell you about, maybe on our second date.”

“So there’s going to be a second date then?”

“Well that’s if you ask me out on one. Or did my little episode scare you off?”

Please say no. Say that there will be a second date.

“I don’t scare off easily Estrella. It’s going to take more than some raccoon eyes to scare me off.”

 I started to touch around my eyes to find black eyeliner and mascara where it’s not supposed to be. Great bet he doesn’t find this beautiful.

“Crap. I should have gone with water proof mascara.”

“Okay well how about you go to the bathroom and get fixed up while I go pay off the tab so we can be on our way out.”

I just simply nodded and went towards the bathroom. I have no idea how I didn’t scare Harry off because I jumped as soon as I caught sight of my own reflection. After I cleaned up my disgrace of a face I couldn’t help but look towards the bathroom stall. Again his voice rang through my head on replay. I could’ve easily bent down right there and gagged my heart out but as I was about to I thought of Harry. The voice of my ex was replaced by his voice telling me how beautiful I was. I slowly backed away from the stall and walked out of the bathroom. As I was coming out I couldn’t help but over hear the conversation going on between Harry and Jade.

“Hold up harry!”

“What’s up Jade?”

“Listen you just meet Estrella and I just want to tell you that she’s special. She’s been through hell and back these past couple of years, hence the little episode back there. She doesn’t need or deserve any more pain in her life so please if you’re serious about her you’ll love her for who she is dark side and all. If you can’t do that than do her the favor of staying away.”

I couldn’t help but get a little upset with her. How dare she tell him to stay away from me, that’s not her choice to make. I know that she’s just looking out for me but still. Plus she’s making me out to be some type of nutcase.

“I promise you Jade that I will be there for her Jade.”

I couldn’t help but smile at that comment and the sincerity in his voice.

“I hope that you intend to keep that promise, even when you go on with your tour.”

“Excuse me?”


“You heard me Mr. Harry Styles from One Direction.”

I couldn’t run out from my hiding spot any faster.

“Okay I’m ready to go.”

“Let’s go then, nice to meet you Jade.”

“Likewise Harry. Don’t be a stranger Estrella!” Jade said.

Even though I wanted to strangle the shit out of here I had to pretend that I didn’t just hear a word of what they were talking about.

“I won’t be, I promise. You know I never break my promises.”

Harry and I then walked to the car in silence. The whole car ride there I was debating on wither or not I should come clean now or not. We finally got to my house and he walked me to my front door. We both spoke in unison.

“I need to tell you something.”

We both started to laugh.

“Since we both need to speak our mind do you want to come in?” I asked.


Without thinking I started to walk up the stairs with him up to my room. I was about to open the door when I remembered.


I can’t let Harry go in my room I have all my One Direction posters up. THINK ESTRELLA, THINK YOU STUPID BITCH!

“Do you actually have a restroom that I can use?”

Oh thank Jesus. The Lord loves me!

“Yea, right down the hall way on the right.”

As soon as I saw him disappear down the hall way I flew inside my room and as much as it pained me to do it I tiered down EVERY.SINGLE.POSTER.

“I’m so sorry my babies.” I said as I teared them up and threw them in the closet.

As soon as I was done and I closed the door to my closet I heard a knock on my door.

“Come in.” I said hoping he wouldn’t notice that I was a little out of breathe.

He walked in and started to look around. My room was pretty standard to me, nothing to really look at. After he got he’s eye full he finally spoke.

“Hello there. So who should go first?”

This is it Estrella. Fess up.

“So Harry I have a confession to make. I actually know…”

I was cut short when I saw a pair of headlights from outside coming into my driveway.

“Shit!” I said as I ran to my window.

“What’s wrong?” Harry said as he ran to my side by the window.

“My mom’s home early and if she sees you up in my room, lets just say the next time you see me will be at my funeral. She can get away with the murder to, she’s an FBI Agent. Come on before she makes her way up…”

I turned around to see a very peeved but confused Hispanic middle aged woman at my bedroom door.

“Hola mami.”

“Estrella, este es..”

I interrupted her before she could say his name outloud. Harry Styles sounds the same in any language.

“yo sé. Voy a explicar contigo después.” ( I know, I’ll explain it to you later.)

She just nodded and then began to speak English.

 “Hello there, and you are?”

“Hello. I’m Harry it’s very nice to meet you.”

“I’m Luz, Estrella’s mom. Nice to meet you as well.”

 Yea she’s being nice now but as soon as he walks out that door I’m going to get hell on wheels. Dios help me.

“Well I’ll be going now. I’ll text you later Estrella. Goodbye Ms. Perez.”

“Goodbye Harry.”

I heard the door close and as soon as it did the mother I know and love came out.

“Estrella really? I don’t give a fuck if he’s Harry Styles no guys in your room! How the hell did Harry Styles get here in the first place? Brujería (witchcraft) Estrella is not allowed in this house for this is a house of God.”

“MAMI CALM DOWN! Sit and I’ll tell you everything.”

“Are you going to tell me where your shrine went to?”

We both laughed when I showed her all of the poster in my closet. We spent the rest of the night lying on my bed while I told her the whole story beging to end of course not including the whole crying. When it was finally time for me to get some rest my mom gave me a kiss on my forhead.

“Mi hija I’m happy for you but just be careful.”

“I will ma.”

As I was getting ready to shut my eyes for the night I got a text from Harry but none from Natasha. I wonder if she’s okay, usually she would be blowing up my phone trying to get as many deets out of me about the date.

* Hey do you want to finish our convo tomorrow at my hotel? I can come get you.*

* Yea that would be perfect. *

*Great, I’ll get you around 12. Goodnight Estrella, sweet dreams xx*
