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.


59. My Little Salsa Man


Harry’s P.O.V

                During the whole dinner I was shitting bricks and Estrella could definitely tell. I laughed at how stupid it was that I was getting nervous, I mean I sing in front of thousands of people on the daily and do interviews but yet I’m scared of my own girlfriends reaction of when I –. I got cut off from my thoughts when Estrella slammed her fork on her plate.

                “Okay that’s it! Harry Edward Styles spit it out I can feel your nerves.” she said.

                 Harry, it’s now or never. Just do it, you took classes you can do this. She stared at me waiting for a response but I felt my mouth dry and unable to speak so I just got up and went towards the radio to press play. As the song played she got a confused look on her face. I walked towards her and finally got the courage to speak.

                “Remember when we went to the festival and you wanted to dance?” I asked her

                She just simply nodded her head so I continued.

                “Well I saw the look of disappointment on your face when I said no and I never want to disappoint you plus I felt like crap cause I couldn’t even dance with my own girlfriend so..” I said while reaching out my hand and grabbing her’s so she can stand up.           

                “I took a little salsa class.” I explained and started to move my feet to the same song that she danced to with that guy at the festival.

                Her face was a mixture of happy and shocked as I actually didn’t step on her feet and remembered every move my teacher taught me, I even spun her which got a giggle out of her. Soon enough the music stopped and Estrella finally spoke.

                “Well look at you my little salsa man. You didn’t have to do that you know, I would still have loved you if you didn’t know how to dance… but it is an extra bonus.” she said with a smirk on her face.

                “Consider it an early birthday present.” I replied while giving her a peck on the cheek.

                “Stop, you know I hate talking about my birthday.” she said with a sigh.

Estrella’s P.O.V

                I actually forgot all about my birthday until Harry mentioned it. I use to love my birthday but that was because I always had the best birthday’s… that was until my dad left. He actually left the day of my birthday, nice one dad way to go to scar your daughter’s life. Since then my birthday has been cursed, something bad always happened on my birthday. Last year I broke my hand on my birthday, the year before that my dog died.

                “Babe come on there’s no such thing as bad luck.” Harry said as we made our way down the elevator towards the car.

                “I believe in it and I have a good reason to.” I replied

                “Well I’m sorry but I’m not going to forget about your birthday, the day that the girl I love was born. Plus after you gave me the best birthday ever I have to return the favor.” he said

                “No you don’t I’ll give you a pass, just drop it okay. Please.” I said, we were now in the car, I was staring out of the window and I felt his arm rub my thigh.

                “Okay I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to ruin your night love.” he said

                I turned around to look him in the eye and I raised my hand to touch his cheek. “Nothing can ruin this night Harry; this has truly been the best day of my life.” I said as I kissed him on his soft lips.

                The car stopped but not at the airport like I expected. Again Harry took the lead by grabbing my hand and steering me where he wanted to go. I didn’t recognize anything but as we got closer to the designated I knew exactly where we were going.

                “Are we going where I think we’re going?” I asked Harry as we got closer.

                He took out a lock and sharpie from his jacket pocket which answered my question.

                I grabbed it from him and ran towards the bridge. Luckily I was good on my feet when wearing heels so I didn’t fall on my face but I knew I sure looked like a little kid. I forgot that I told Harry how much I wanted to visit this bridge and how I thought it was so sweet how couples wrote there name and anniversary date on the lock, lock it on the bridge and then throw the key into the water. It was always the little things that Harry remembers that most guys wouldn’t even listen to in the first place. I stood on the bridge waiting for Harry to finally reach me and when he did he was panting and out of breath.

                “Okay Styles, where do you wanna lock this bad boy?” I asked.

                “Good question babe… how about right here next to the lovely couple that’s been together since 1968.” he replied

                I nodded and wrote my name then handed it to harry so he can have his name in his hand writing. I put our anniversary date and then an infinity sign and he smiled. I locked it right where he wanted it and then tried to give him the key.

                “Oh no, I picked where we had it now you can throw it maybe even make a wish.” He said.

                I closed my eyes trying to figure out what I could wish for. I finally found the perfect wish and threw the key in the water. I hugged Harry and as we walked back to the car the curiosity got to him.

                “So what did you wish for?” he asked.

                “Well I would tell you that I can’t tell you cause than it wouldn’t come true but I don’t think it’s going to come true anyway so I’ll tell you. I wished that my dad would come find me. That he cared enough to at least try to contact me, see how I grew up and tell me how he regrets leaving me.” I replied.

                For once Harry had nothing to say, which was perfectly fine since I really didn’t need any words like “I’m sure he’s proud” or “he’ll come around”. I just wanted someone to hold me which is exactly what Harry did all night, from the car to the plane to his apartment he held me and never let me go. My eyes were growing heavy as I lie on Harry’s soft bed but before I could completely doze of Harry finally spoke.

                “I will never leave you Estrella.” he said.

                “You promise?” I asked.

                “I promise.” he replied and kissed me on the forehead.

Harry’s P.O.V

                As I watched sleep take over Estrella I felt useless. How can I ever take away that pain she held onto due to her father? I had an idea but I had no idea where to start. I looked around for Estrella’s phone and found the number that I was looking for.

                “Hello Ms. Perez so sorry to bother you but I just need a favor from you. Do you have any idea how I can get a hold of Estrella’s dad?”
