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.


5. Have you heard of One Direction?


Estrella’s P.O.V

 We got to the coffee shop that they had in the mall and sat down. Harry led the way and picked the table that was all the way in the corner. I didn’t have to question why he picked it; it was obvious that he didn’t want to get recognized. SHIT! He still doesn’t know that I know he’s all big and famous. I wonder if I should tell him that I know. What if I tell him and he just sees me as another fan girl, he’ll lose interest. I don’t even know if there IS interest on his part. I mean there has to be right?



“What would you like today?” said the server looking a little peeved that I wasn’t listening the first time.

“Oh sorry, a mocha frappe would be nice thank you.”

After the server left Harry stared at me with a puzzled look on his face, even with that expression he looked like a sex god! He finally spoke.

“What do you have going on in that beautiful head of yours? You looked so deep in thought just then.”

Well I thought I knew everything there was to know about him and here he goes showing something else he’s good at. He’s very observant.

“Well you’re observant aren’t you? It’s nothing much, I just had a thought but it’s gone now.”

Just then the waitress came back with our drinks. “Here you guys go, one big tea and one mocha frappe. Let me know if you need anything else.”

We then said “Thank you” at the same time and then laughed.

“So tell me about yourself.”

It took all of my power not to burst out laughing. HARRY STYLES WANTS TO KNOW ABOUT ME! He has the most exciting life and he wants to know about me and my boring life. I usually don’t bite my tongue when I want to say something but I knew that if I said that it would be game over. So instead I just smiled and replied with

“Tell me what you want to know.”

He smiled back at me and we just talked. We talked for hours and hours. People were coming in and out with their orders and there were workers that were clocking in and clocking out and we were still talking. We talked about everything, from our family life, to school, and of course we covered his favorite topic music. I told him how I’m Puertorican and was born in New York.

“I knew it! I went over there recently and I could recognize the accent.”

I felt like saying, I KNOW YOU WERE THERE CAUSE YOU HAD A CONCERT! But of course I had to bite my tongue once again. I talked about how I just graduated and I’m planning for college and my favorite bands… didn’t mention one direction of course and he interjected whenever he liked the same band, which was quite often to my surprise. He then asked me a question that for some reason I just couldn’t find the courage to answer truthfully.

“Do you know the about the boy band One Direction?”

This is what I wanted to say:

“Yesssss, yes I do and I’ve been trying not to flip out cause I know you’re in that boy band but I just want you to like me and not think of me as just another fan…..”

What came out of my mouth was:

“No, never heard of them.”

One of the biggest lies I have ever told in my life.

The subject of work came up he got tense. I told him I worked at a clothing store and then asked him if he worked, pretending that I didn’t know.

“I don’t work.”

Liar. But hey who am I to judge, I’m kind of lying right now pretending not to know who he is aren’t I? But I just can’t risk it.

I then changed the course of the convo to his life. He never brought up One Direction again since he thought I didn’t know. He just talked about growing up in England and I had to pretend that I didn’t know any of this, that this was all new information for my ears.  I looked at my cell to see a text from Natasha:

*Hey girlie I know you’re having the time of your life right now but the mall is about to close in like 30min, so wrap it up. DON’T FORGET TO GET THE DIGITS BITCH!*

Thank God my phone was on silent cause it would have been very awkward and I would’ve been caught in my lie since my ringtone is Harry singing his solo in What Makes You Beautiful. I looked at the time and she was right it was 8:00pm. Oh I hate how everything here closes early here.

“Not that I don’t love talking to you but the mall is about to close in like 30 minutes.

“Oh wow that’s the time, no wonder I have so many texts from my friends, they probably think that I’m dead in a ditch somewhere. But we didn’t get to the one subject that I wanted to touch on.”

  And by “friends” you mean the boys. Again I bite my tongue

“And what subject is that. I hope it’s not math cause I suck at that.”


He laughed and replied “NO! It’s not math. The topic I wanted to touch on was your love life.”

Harry is interested in MY love life?

“Oh that topic well lets walk and talk so we don’t get locked in here with no way out.”

We started to walk through the mall towards the parking lot and I saw Natasha waiting by car from a distance. He’s car and mine were the only two in the lot and my goodness did my car look like shit compared to his.

“So long story short my love life doesn’t exist, its nonexistent. I mean the only way I can get a guy to spend a day with me is pumping into him and spilling his tea everywhere and I just learned that method today, I think I’m going to try that method on other guys to see if it works on them to.”

He was laughing so loud that it echoed in the parking lot and I saw that it made Natasha jump.

“Well since you tried this method on me first I want my credit. It should be called the Harry Styles Method!”


We got to his car and he asked me two of his last questions of the night before I walked towards my car were Natasha was waiting and most likely watching our every move.

“So I’m guessing you don’t have a boyfriend?”


“Well then it wouldn’t be out of line for me to ask you for your number so we can talk and possibly go out again sometime?”

“As long as the next time I see you and talk to you there is NO tea involved what so ever. I don’t want to see, hear or smell tea after today.”

“Scouts honor, cross my heart and hope to die.”

He gave me his phone and I put in my number in his phone, I didn’t get the chance to put my name because he wanted to see if he could spell it himself. I rolled my eyes and called him a dork and he started to laugh. He showed it to me and to my surprise he spelled it right and he had put a heart next to my name.

“Goodbye Estrella”

“Goodbye Harry.”

He gave me a hug and I walked away. I felt all eyes on me, Natasha staring at me head on dying to know all the details and I felt Harry’s green orbs staring at me from behind. As I reached the car and got in Natasha started to bounce up and down screaming in her seat.


“I’ll tell you when we get home, you know I don’t pay attention to other things when I’m in a deep convo, do you want to die in this car?”

“Okay, I’m def staying over tonight. Can I just get one detail now? I’m dying over here!”

I smirked and just simply said “Trust me when I say this Natasha, this will NOT be the last time that I see Harry Styles.”
