COMPLETED. Alira Somers. A 19 year old girl who isn't that much of a fan of One Direction. But her best friend, Jenna, won tickets to a little 'promo' about One Direction. Little did they know, One Direction was performing. That's where they lay eyes on both of them for the first time. That's when Alira changed her views on them. That's when 2/5 will fall for her. That's when all hell breaks loose in her life. **Blurb is misleading, it isn't as good as I thought it would be. Personally, it's not my best but by all means, if you want to read it go ahead! Just let me warn you, it's not as good as the blurb says.

Chapter 20: the rest of our lives

 

Harry’s POV

 

I carried Alira all the way back to the house. It was like a 15 minute walk but I didn’t mind. I wasn't kidding when I said she weighed like a feather. I’m so glad that she agreed it was a date. I mean, I’ve never put so much effort in it. I want to win her over more than anything. The fact that she was so happy in the clearing I brought her to. And to find that she can sing, dance and do photography, I just... I’m falling for her so badly. I’ve never felt like this for a girl before. And when we kissed. I just want her to be mine, I’m sure she felt those fireworks too. The sparks literally slew. 

As the house came into view, I got a little disappointed. It means my time with Ali is over. I stared at the house and looked at the third story, I’ve only been up there once. I remember seeing the extra bedroom and it was smaller than the rest on the second. That’s when I realised Jake could’ve slept there instead of the couch. I chuckled a bit.

‘What’s funny?’ Ali asked.

‘I just realised the third floor had an extra bedroom and Jake slept on the couch.’ I chuckled again.

‘Oh, that’s true!’ She laughed along. 

Once we reached the steps leading to the door, Ali hopped off my back.

‘That truly was a perfect date. Thank you, Harry!’ She hugged me and went to kiss my cheek. But I twisted my head and kissed her lips instead. We stood there as the fire works exploded and our lips touching each others’.

‘Perfect end to a perfect date.’ I smiled at her as we pulled away.

‘Thank you, Harry.’ She whispered and took my hand. We both headed to the door.

The door burst open and there stood Jenna with an angry look and her arms folded over her chest.

‘You’re late.’ She said sternly. We both laughed at her as she pretended to be a mum.

‘Sorry, mum.’ Alira giggled. I squeezed her hand, her laugh makes me so giddy.

‘Anyway, we decided to go some shopping. Plus, I need to go shopping for the date Jake has in mind.’ She winked at Ali and went back inside the house.

‘I’m going to go change my outfit.’ She says, letting go of my hand.

‘Okay, but wait. I need to tell you something.’ I grabbed her hand again. 

‘Okay, what’s up buttercup?’ She asks. I smile at her and let my heart do the talking.

‘I like you, Ali. I like you so much. I love how we can hold hands, I love the way how your fingers fit perfectly in between mine. I love how you giggle a lot even if it’s not that funny. I love how you can talk about anything and not care about what you’re saying. I love how you are so talented. I love how you really know what you want. I love how your brown eyes sparkle whenever you smile. I love how you run your hand absentmindedly through your strawberry blonde hair. And I love how you don’t mind telling me anything. I really want to be with you but I know that you like Louis as well. I just want you to know that whoever you pick, I will respect your decision and I will always be here for you no matter what. Because I think I’m in love with you. And I don’t care if it’s only been a few days since we met. I don’t care that we never really spent time together. I just care about you and spending my life with you, whether that’s being your best friend or being your husband. I just want you to know I’m always here.’ I smiled so big and I watched as tears filled her eyes and a smile break across her face.

I just care about you and spending my life with you, whether that’s being your best friend or being your husband. I just want you to know I’m always here.’ He finished his little speech and he grins at me. I can really tell it was spoken from the heart and I just... wow. I’ve never had a guy who told me what he loves about me. I’ve never had a guy who doesn’t care about who i chose just as long as he’s in my life. I’ve never had a guy who talks about his feelings. And I’ve never had a guy who’s accepted the fact that I like two people.

‘Harry... I... wow. You’re the first guy I’ve ever had to tell me what he really feels. I thank you for accepting the fact that I like Louis as well. I like you too, Harry. I like you a lot. I want you in my life forever and ever because you’re such a special person. I never want to lose you. But honestly, I don’t know what part you’d take in my life. I just know I want you there. Thank you for being honest. Thank you for promising me you’d never leave. Thank you, Harry.’ I can feel tears in my eyes. It’s happy tears. The smile on my lips feels like it’s permanent there. I hugged him again. I truly want him. But I want Louis as well.

We walked inside to find everyone on the couch.

‘I’m going to go get changed.’ I announced to everyone and made my way to the stairs.

‘I’m coming. I need to talk to you.’ Jenna said, hopping up off Jake’s lap.

We made our way to our room and I immediately started rummaging through my suitcase. I picked up tanned collar top and my nude lace patterned skirt. I pulled bright nude ballet flats with cream bracelets and a butterfly necklace. I grabbed my cream bag. I laid them across the bed and turned to Jenna.

‘Okay, you talk while I dress.’ I ordered.

‘I heard Harry give his speech outside.’ She pointed out.

‘It was sweet, wasn’t it? I don’t know what to do anymore, Jen. I like Harry and Louis.’ I sighed as I slipped on my shoes.

‘Have you kissed Louis yet?’ She asked.

‘Yes. And I’ve kissed Harry. And sparks flew with both kisses.’ I grunted. I put on my jewelry and went over to the mirror.

‘You’re in a pickle.’ She muttered.

‘I know! I have no clue what to do. This date with Harry was beautiful! He took me to this clearing with a playground and lots and lots of flowers. We danced to Enchanted. I told him about my photography and my dancing and my singing. We had a picnic. We kissed and fireworks burst! Then he tells me he’s starting to fall in love and that he wants to be in my life forever and ever! Ugh, this is so messed up!’ I practically scream. I sighed and turned back to look at my reflection in the mirror. I reapplied my mascara and eye liner. I put on some lip gloss and turned around to Jenna.

‘I’m sorry, Ali. I can’t really tell you who to choose. But if you haven’t realised yet Louis hasn’t really done anything. He only kissed you. Whereas Harry took you on a date and told you what he really feels.’ 

‘But Louis saved my life.’

‘Yeah, and others would as well if they had the chance. I’m not saying go for Harry because I know you like them both. But I’m saying Louis hasn’t done much for you. You still have ages to decide.’

‘That is true. I’m not going to say anything to Lou. He can figure it out himself.’

‘That’s wise.’

‘Now, I need to ask you something. Did you ever like Zayn?’ I asked and she closed her eyes. I watched her as she took a deep breath.

‘Yes.’ She whispered.

‘Do you still do?’ I asked.

‘I don’t know.’ She muttered and she opened her eyes. She had tears. ‘I don’t know, okay, Ali. I really like Jake. But then there’s Zayn. He’s starting to hide his jealousy. He’s starting to get along with Jake. He’s starting to be there for me. I like Jake. I like him so much. I don’t want to lose him at all. But Zayn is right there being all gorgeous and every time I look at him my heart yearns for him! I know I can’t do that. I can’t do that to Jake. He’s the sweetest person to me. I just don’t know, Ali.’ a tear escaped and it fell down her face. I walked over to her and hugged her.

‘It’s okay, sweetie. You’ll figure it out one day. Like me. We’ll choose one of them and they will love us forever and ever. Just not today. It’s been less than a week since we met One Direction. And it’s been about two days since you met Jake. We have the rest of our lives to figure this out, babe.’

‘That’s true.’ She sniffled and she wiped the tears away. ‘We better get going. It’s quarter to 3.’ 

She looked at her reflection in the mirror. She had a nude long sleeved top with a white collar and she joined it with white skinnies and brown ankle boots. She had a white beanie and a brown bag.

‘Let’s go.’ I held my hand out for her and we walked down the stairs.

‘We’re readyyy!’ Jenna singsonged. Jake jumped up and snaked his arm around her waist pulling her away from me.

‘Okay, I get it. Just take her off me.’ I laughed and let go of her hand. 

Jenna winked at me and Jake kissed her hair. They are insanely cute. I looked over at Zayn, his eyes read hurt but he was smiling. He really is trying to not show his jealousy. 

‘Are we going or what?’ Niall asked. He had his arm wrapped around Janelle’s shoulders. I smiled at her, hoping that she would return the gesture. The corners of her lips pulled up just a tiny bit and they dropped and she looked away. That’s how I know she’s not over it. 

‘Yes, let’s go.’ Liam said, walking out the door.

‘I’m driving!’ I yell. Everyone stopped in their tracks and turned to look at me.

‘What? I can drive. I’m 19, y’know.’ I say taking the keys of Louis.

‘If ya’ll don’t want to come, it’s fine with me.’ I yelled, hopping in the driver’s seat.

Everyone piled in. Liam sat next to me. Zayn, Louis and Harry sat in the middle row. Niall, Janelle, Jake and Jenna sat at the back. Jenna was sat on Jake’s lap since she no seat. How awkward would it be to be back there. I put a cd i bought with me into the stereo and began to blast it. It was Ed Sheeran’s +. 

You were just a small bump unborn

In four months, you were brought to life.

You might be left with my hair

But you have your mother’s eyes

I sang along to Ed Sheeran while I drove the Kombi to the shops. I sang until the song ended. Everyone erupted into applause. I looked in the rearview mirror and saw everyone grinning and clapping except for Janelle. Her eyes were narrowed and she was clapping lightly.

‘What?’ I ask, completely oblivious as to why they were clapping.

‘You were amazing! I didn’t know you could sing.’ Zayn commented.

‘I don’t. I usually sing in the shower, when i’m alone and when I’m driving. It makes me concentrate usually.’ I say.

‘You really are good. I don’t know why you think you can’t sing.’ Harry said, shaking is head.

‘Because I can’t. It’s weird how I’m denying One Direction saying I can sing. But you’re all just being ridiculous.’ I said. 

‘Believe whatever, Ali.’ Jenna spoke up.

‘Shut up, Jenna. It’s like you denying you can’t design clothes. You’re flacking amazing!’ I say.

‘Did you just say flacking?’ Niall asked.

‘Yes...’ I say. I looked in the rearview mirror to see Harry blushing.

‘How’d you get in the habit of saying that?’ Liam asked.

‘Jenna.’ I blamed her. They all turned to her and I got confused.

‘Why ‘flacking’? Is it because I date Caroline Flack?’ Harry asked her.

‘Um...’ Jenna turned red and buried her head in Jake’s shoulder.

‘You dated Caroline Flack? Isn’t she twice your age?’ I ask Harry. He blushed like mad.

‘Didn’t you know? Everyone in the world knew.’ Harry blushed even redder.

‘Sorry, mate. I’m not a directioner.’ I say.

‘WHAT!? No longer friends, Ali.’ Louis said and he crossed his arms and looked away. I rolled my eyes at him.

‘Chill, Lou. If I was i’d be crazy and be all over you.’ I scolded.

‘Our directioners aren’t crazy. They’re just over-excited.’ He retorts.

‘Whatever, Lou.’ I said, rolling my eyes again.

I saw the shopping centre and parked closest to the entrance.

‘Okay, kiddies. We’re here. Remember no running away, hold each other’s hands and don’t scream, okay.’ I put on my mother’s voice.

‘Shut up, Ali. You do this every time we go to the shops.’ She rolls her eyes, grabbed Jake’s hand and jumps out of the Kombi.

‘What the hell, Ali?’ Niall laughs at me and took Janelle’s hand and walked out.

‘Well, you’re all listening to me.’ I laugh.

‘Let’s go, boobear.’ Harry said, taking Louis’ hand. They are totally gay for each other.

‘Ziam moment!’ Liam screamed and ran out of the car and took Zayn’s hand. I got out and locked the Kombi. I stared at them as they were all in pairs.

‘Well, this is awkward...’ I mutter. ‘I’ll just hold my own hand!’ I joined my hands together and walked off.

‘You’re a weird ass kid, you know that.’ Liam said, walking up to me while laughing.

‘I don’t care, LiLi.’ I say and we all walked in.
