4. Nando's

It'd been almost a week since I'd gotten to London and said goodbye to Niall.  He hadn't had time to introduce me to the other boys because security quickly rushed them away, barely letting him get out a "I'll text you!"  Ellabelle told me they were the funniest guys she had ever met, and she had already gotten Harry's number.  I remember when she told me what happened with her and Austin.


I raised my arm to hail a cab, and when one stopped, me and El put our luggage in the trunk and got in.  I layed my head against the seat when, all of the sudden, Ella started bawling her eyes out.  I quickly lifted my head back up and looked over at her.  She had her head in her hands and her shoulders shook.  I leaned over and rested my arm around her, trying to comfort her.

"...El....does this happen to be about Austin?"  I waited for a few minutes before se finally quited down a little bit and started pouring her heart out to me.

"H-He ch-ch-cheated on me T-Tay....I caught h-him with another g-g-girl making out at a p-park..."

I pulled her into as much of a hug as I could in the small backseat of the cab.

"Oh El...."

"Wh-why would he ch-cheat on me?  I h-honestly thought what w-we had was sp-pecial...I just don't get i-it."  She shivered violently and then she was quiet.  When she spoke next, her words sounded stronger.

"But you know what?  Harry understands me.  I don't know Tay I feel like we had a connection...but I'm not rushing into anything, not after what happened with Austin.  I told him what happened when we were on the plane ride and he just held me and it felt so nice.  I never realized how harsh Austin was when he held me and kissed me but Harry was just so soft and caring."

I smiled a little to myself as she said this.  I never really liked Austin much.  I always caught him checking out other girls and it just made me so mad because I knew he didn't deserve Ella.  Maybe Harry would be a good thing in El's life.

---End of flashback---

I had met with the modeling agency two days ago.  My interview had gone great and I was still waiting for them to call to tell me if I was in or not.  They had had me walk up and down a catwalk wearing a couple different outfits to see how I was on the runway and they said I was a natural, which was definitely news to me.  Hearing those words from them actually made me feel like I was worth something to somebody.

Niall had texted me a few times since we met on the plane.  I had learned so much about him.  I was so engulfed in my thoughts that I almost didn't hear my phone buzz, but then it slid off the hotel bed, thudding on the carpet.  I picked it up and clicked read on the unread message.

"From: Niall
Hey do you wanna meet for some Nando's?  There's one a couple blocks away from where you're staying and since it's late, hopefully there won't be a lot of paps.  Please say yes!  I miss you :( xx"

I chuckled to myself at the boy I had only know for a week.  I quickly typed a reply.

"To: Niall
Sure!  I'll map it and be there soon!  Lol miss you too Nialler xx"

We had gotten so close over the last week, even though we hadn't seen each other.  Where would I be without texting?  Probably not talking to a world-famous popstar.  Sometimes I had to pinch myself to make sure everything was real, because it's not everyday that you bump into THE Niall Horan and get his number.  

I was still trying to get used to the fact that he wanted to talk to me often and genuinly seemed to like it too.  Walking over to the door, I slipped on my jacket and stepped outside.  Since Nando's was so close, I had just decided to walk.

As I stepped out into the cool summer air, I breathed in deep, looking around me.  I was so in love with London.  I can't believe I didn't want to come here.  I'm in the most beautiful city in the world that probably every girl wants to live in, or at least visit.  It was so surreal.  

It took me about 6 minutes to walk to Nando's, and when I got there, I saw Niall sat in a booth, talking to a fan who happened to be in the right place at the right time.  I laughed as I saw how happy talking to this one fan made him.  She was currently in the middle of asking him to sign her forehead when he looked up and noticed me.

A huge smile broke over his face and he stood up and pulled me into a hug.  I breathed in the amazing smell of him and hugged him back tightly.

He pulled away and looked back over at the girl who just stood there looking back and forth between us.  She opened her mouth and said, "You guys are really cute together!  Can I get your girlfriends autograph Niall?!"  Her eyes lit up, hoping we'd say yes.

Niall and I both blushed and he said, "Oh..we're just really good friends, but thanks!"  His smile almost looked a little sad as he said the 'just friends' part.

The girl looked almost disappointed at his answer but she still insisted she had my autograph.  I smiled, and Niall and I both signed her notepad and her forehead after she convinced us her mom said it was okay. 

After the girl finally left us alone, we sat down and our waitress came up.  I saw her glance up and down Niall and she fluttered her eyes and she asked for his order.  He pointed at me, no even looking at her and I told her I wanted the peri peri chicken.  She took my order, rolling her eyes, and looked back expectantly at Niall.  He told her he wanted the same as me, plus the rest of the menu. I laughed and grinned at him, and he grinned back.

"I'm sorry but...aren't you from that band?  One Direction?  I heard the waitress say.

Niall looked up seeming bored and said, "Yep, but I'm just a normal guy out for a normal evening right now."  

He looked away pulling out his phone, obviously trying to get her to go away.  She just stood there until the other waitress told her to stop daydreaming.  She walked away, shooting a glare back at me.

Niall finally looked away from his phone, sliding it into his pocket.  "Sorry 'bout that," he said, smiling sheepishly.  I smiled back.  It wasn't his fault he was unbelievably noticable and attractive.  Stop it Harmony.

"It's all,"  I said,  "how've you and the boys been?"

"Pretty good I guess.  I've missed you though and the lads are dying to meet ya."

I felt myself start to blush and looked down.  We continued to make small talk until the waitress came back with our food.  She set it down and said, "Can I get you anything else?  Anything at all?"

Oh come on.  Was this lady for real?  I was laughing so hard inside my head and I struggled to keep it in.  She was at least almost 30 and had about 25 pounds of make-up on her face.  Get real.

Niall didn't look up.  He just bluntly said, "No."

She frowned a little and walked away.  I didn't understand the feeling I was having right now.  Niall was always my favorite in the band and he always made my heart skip a beat, but that was before I met him.  I always thought it would stay that way, even if I ever did meet him.  

But now I wasn't so sure what was happening.  My heart felt light and fluttery and I was always so happy when I talked to him.  When he hugged me, I felt so safe, like nothing in the world could hurt me.  Cliche' I know.  Was I falling for Niall?

I was pulled out of my thoughts as my phone rang.  Pulling it out of my purse, I looked down to see who was calling.  *Incoming Call: Emergency*

My heart stopped.  Emergency?  Oh god no.  My thoughts immedietly jumed to Ella.  I clicked 'accept' and said, "Hello?!"

"Hello, is this Ms. Harmony Taylor?"

"Yes, it is."

"You and your friend, Ellabelle Sanders are staying at a hotel together right?" 

Oh no.

"Yes, she's my best friend.  We're staying here for a few weeks before going back to the USA.  I'm actually out with a friend right now."

"Ms. Taylor.  The hotel you and your friend are staying at has been robbed.  And someone has kidnapped Ellabelle."
