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.


47. Chapter 47: past and present


Chapter 47: past and present


Harry’s POV


There’s never been a time where I’ve been so excited. Not when my mum bought me my first car, not when I first tried alcohol, heck, not even when I dated Caroline Flack. But Ali agreeing to coming into my room with me made me reach my peak of excitement. And I don’t even know why. 

I always thought I was over her. I thought I was through the drastic feelings I got in Australia. Yeah, she was on my mind throughout the whole time we were away but I only thought of her because of what Louis did. Man, I remember how enraged I was when I heard him say that. I had to put on an impassive mask for the camera but inside my heart was pounding with rage and my blood was boiling with anger. 




Sitting on this plush maroon couch reminded me of the cream leather ones in Ali’s house. Man, I missed her. I missed her as a friend, not as a crush. I’ve moved on, I swear. I moved on for louis because Ali is Louis’. As much as I hated that, I respect it. Sure, I wanted her to be mine but he was his. 

And there goes my mind. I tried to focus back on the interview. I look at the interviewer who was wearing a beige suit with a light blue button down shirt, a midnight blue tie and brown leather shoes. 

‘So you all came from Australia, right?’ The interviewer said just as I zoned back in. My face broke out into a small smile.

‘Yeah, we did. We met lovely people.’ Liam answered. The most loveliest, i thought.

‘And Louis, I’m sure you met a certain lovely person.’ The interviewer said in a suggestive tone. My smile faltered a little and so I put on a blank face.

‘Yeah.’ Louis deadpanned. I felt my head shoot straight to his face. He had absolutely no expression, he didn’t look like he was in a faraway state or he was in love. He told all of us he loved her, why does he not look like he misses her or he was thinking of her?

‘You tweeted she was your girlfriend, didn’t you?’ The interviewer continued on, obviously looking confused at the way Louis answered him. You and me both, man, I thought.

‘Yeah, but that was all a joke. We were just messing around. It was one of those times when you stay in a certain place for a while and you meet new people that you really do get along with.’ He said in that same blank tone. I kept my face expressionless but I can feel my blood boiling. Did he tell her about this!? Does he even talk to her at all!?

‘So, you’re saying it was an Australian fling?’ The guy summarised.

‘Yeah, I guess you could say that.’ Louis chuckled slightly.

I clenched my hands into fists. He definitely didn’t mention any of this. i could feel Zayn and Niall confused but not angry like me. I was angry because he’s saying all of this when he told Ali something completely different. Ali isn’t someone you mess your feelings with. if you love her you love her, there’s no going back on that. But you have to know what you really feel like before you tell her. You can’t just lead her on. But that’s what Louis did. Even if me and Ali are a thousand miles away i know she’ll be heartbroken if she watches this interview. That’s when I sent a silent prayer that she doesn’t watch this interview.

I didn’t listen after that I just sat quietly, pondering over my thoughts.

Finally, the interview was over. I smiled at the interviewer and we walked off when they called cut. I walked right behind Louis to the dressing room. My fists were clenching and unclenching. Once we were in the safe, sound-proof room, I spoke out.

‘What the hell was that, Louis!?’ I yelled out. My face contorted with rage.

‘Yeah, Lou. What happened to loving her?’ Niall joined in.

‘How can you say that about her!’ Zayn yelled along with us. Liam stayed quiet, usually because he didn’t want to get in but something in his eyes told me it was for a different reason though he face gave nothing away. 

‘Did you know about this!?’ I turned on Liam. He opened his mouth but then I saw Louis shoot a glare at him and he closed it.

‘Guys, I had to.’ Louis spoke quietly with his eyes fixated on mine.

‘What do you mean you had to? You never have to do anything. Management doesn’t care anymore, remember? They don’t care who we date anymore!’ I shot at him.

‘It’s got nothing to do with management. But I had to, Harry.’ He tried to reason with me but there was one thing that could possibly change my mind.

‘Just answer this: does Ali know?’ I asked him as calmly as possible. He dropped his eyes to the floor and although I knew the answer i hope it wasn’t the right one. ‘Well?’ I urged on.

‘No.’ He finally answered, his eyes still trained on the floor.

‘I can’t believe you! How can you hurt her like that? Who made you hurt her like that?’ I yelled again. His phone went off and he went to go grab it but Zayn took it first. Zayn looked down at it then he looked up to meet my eyes.

‘It’s Eleanor...’ He told me. My head snapped back to Louis and I gave him such a vicious glare that if looks could kill he would’ve been dead the second my eyes met him.

‘I bet you’re with El again.’ I said quietly. Louis hesitatingly nodded.

‘And you told Ali none of this?’ I said even more quietly but it seemed to echo around the room. 

‘I couldn’t do it.’ He answered. I shut my eyes, trying to calm the rage in me. Another phone rang and i opened my eyes to look for the noise. It came from Liam and he looked at us after he looked at the caller ID.

‘It’s Ali.’ He informed us. My eyes widened. Liam answered it and we all listened in on the one sided conversation.

‘Hello?’ ‘Hi, Ali.’ ‘What?’ ‘No, you can’t. You haven’t even started.’ ‘You watched the interview, didn’t you?’ ‘Is that why?’ ‘He didn’t mean that.’ ‘Are you sure?’ ‘Please don’t.’ ‘Okay, fine.’ ‘I’m sorry, Ali.’ ‘Well, I’m sorry on the behalf of him.’ ‘Okay, bye Ali.’ 

He hung up on the phone and met all of our eyes. We were all in a frozen state, looking at Liam waiting from him to tell us what happened.

‘She quit the photography job.’ He told us. We were even more frozen if that was even possible. I couldn’t believe she quit before she even started. It wasn’t fair!

‘This is all your fault.’ i said to Louis in a disappointed tone and walked out of the room.




‘What movie?’ I asked her once we walked through the door.

‘I don’t know, what ever you want.’ She replied, dropping her bag on the couch in front of the tv.

‘Insidious?’ I suggested with a sly grin playing on my lips.

‘Why?’ Her eyes widened, I know how much she hates horror movies. She can’t stand them because she hates being scared.

‘So you can cuddle up to me and tell me what a hero I am.’ I winked at her and went to put it in the player.

‘Yeah, right. I would never cuddle up to you, I don’t get scared.’ She said defiantly with her arms crossed and her chin up.

‘I bet you would be glued to my side by the end of the movie.’ I said quickly.

‘I bet I won’t.’ 

‘Game on?’ I said, offering my hand.

‘Game on.’ She said, shaking my hand. Her face was set in a determination look and mine was in a grin.

We plopped ourself on the couch and I pressed play so the movie would start. We were on opposite sides of the couch and suddenly sexual tension started to seep into the atmosphere. I wanted so badly to reach over to her and hold her, touch her, kiss her. I just wanted to feel her in my arms. But I wanted so badly win this bet so I didn’t move an inch from my position. 

My eyes flicked over to her from the corner of my eye and I could tell she knows it but her eyes stayed glued on the tv. I averted my attention back to the tv, my hands clenched in fists in my lap to prevent myself from reaching over to her. Not one part of my attention was on the tv, I concentrated on keeping my hands to myself. Then suddenly I heard Ali scream and I concentrated on the movie again.

We were halfway in and I still haven’t flinched or jumped but the amount of times Ali did was absurd. Ali was far from where she started. She was less than an arms reach from me. I guess from the close proximity of our bodies she’s trying to stop herself from reaching out to hold me as well. i waited patiently, knowing I was going to win this bet.

Then 5 minutes later, I was proved right. Her head went smack into my chest and I happily curled my arm around her shoulders and let out a soft chuckle.

‘Whatever, Styles. This is the last time you’ll ever win.’ She grumbled, her head still stuck on my chest.

‘Whatever helps you sleep at night, Somers.’ I countered back, slightly tightening my grip on her shoulders.

A second later she brought her head back up and I made no move to remove my arm. We stayed like that for longer, the sexual tension growing heavier and heavier in the atmosphere. I can feel her getting rigid as well. Sh had a glazed look in her eyes and she kept fidgeting with the hem of her shirt. 

Then, suddenly I heard her mutter, ‘Oh, what the hell.’ And she grabbed my head and smashed her lips to mine.

I responded immediately. I kissed her back, gripped the back of her neck with my hand and pressing her face closer to mine. Her hands slid down my face and around my shoulders. I deepened the kiss by running my tongue along her bottom lip and she opened her mouth eagerly. Our tongues danced and fought a battle in our mouths and in the meantime her hands slid down to my chest. 

Then there was a loud bang from the tv and we jumped apart. She blushed and dropped her eyes down to her lap while I looked around the room with a sheepish grin on my face. 

‘Well, thats was, um... interesting.’ I said aloud.

‘Yeah....’ She answered, the atmosphere now awkward.

‘Okay, Ali, I know it’s probably obvious but I like you. I’ve never stopped liking you since we left Australia. i tried so hard to move past the infatuation I had but I couldn’t. I just liked you a lot.’ I admitted, a blush slowly creeping. I turned my face away hoping that she never noticed my blush.

‘I still like you too, you know. I know I ended up with Louis but a few days ago I realised I still like you as well.’ She confessed. My head shot back to her face.

‘That’s good.’ I whispered and leaned in to kiss her again.






Well, sorry for the long time it took for me to update. I just couldn’t be bothered because I started writing a whole bunch of short stories and stories that I wanted to keep for a while. Anywho, hope you had a beautiful christmas and have an exciting new year! Plus, this chapter was sort of a filler. Sorry, xx.
