18. Shopping Day

Harry's POV

I was awake at like seven thirty, but I was so comfortable with Stephanie on me. She smelled nice. Hahaha. Just thinking that made me laugh even though it was true. I was rudely woken up by my band mates  I bet Niall was just jealous. I walked into the kitchen and made myself a plate of pancakes and a hash brown  Niall took Stephanie upstairs to dunk her in cold water to wake her up. Liam told me. They had been up there for a while. Stephanie bounded down the stairs wearing Niall's clothes. I felt a little bit of jealousy. What happened up there? Her hair was still damp so I remembered she had no other clothes. "Get ready losers. We're going shopping." she smiled grabbing a pancake and taking a bite. "Why? Don't you want to do something a little bit umm more fun?" Zayn asked. "One, shopping is fun. Two, I need some clothes. Three, I've heard a little rumor that you guys have great fashion sense. Therefor, we are going shopping." she replied with more sass then Louis. "Well I think it's a great idea. I love to spoil girls." I said with a grin. she smiled back at me. "Well eat up. Once Niall comes down we'll go to the train station." said Louis. "Train station?" asked Stephanie confused. "We are taking you to New York. That's where the best stores are. Duh." replied Liam. "Woah, that's very expensive. I meant like Bridgewater Commons Mall." She told us. "Like Harry said we love to spoil girls." smirked Louis. Niall came down the stairs. He grabbed a tray with pancakes, a sausage, and a hash brown on it. Niall had a huge appetite as everyone knows. We hopped into the limo and told the driver to take us to the nearest train station that can take us to New York. In about ten minutes we were there. We hopped onto a train to take us to Manhattan  We were sure to keep ourselves hidden. Not wanting a repeat of yesterday. Stephanie an I sat together with her on the isle seat. Liam and Louis sat behind us. Zayn and Niall sat behind them.

"So you like to shop?" I asked her taking her hand.

"Yes, I still need to get a dress for a dance coming up and a date, but that will never in a million years happen. I've never been on a date." she told me.

"I find that very hard to believe." I replied. 

"It's true! And it's not that hard to believe."

"Well Maybe you can go with me." I suggested playing with her fingers.

"You'd do that for me?"

"Normally when we do these contests we don't really develop a friendship with the winner, but this is different. We like you. All of us do."

"You think we're friends?"

"Oh I know we're friends. All the boys love you. You try to connect with us as actual people. Not as celebrities. You're special."

"Thanks, at first I thought you'd be a little stuck up, but I was defiantly wrong." she smiled and leaned a little bit forward resting her elbow and forearm on the arm rest. My hand still entwined in hers.

"But I'm serious about the dance. I'd love to be your date. We could dance and I'd bring you punch. We'd make all your friends jealous. Think about it. We'd have the time of our lives." I said putting my arm around her.

"I don't have...any friends. Except one. Danny. He is the brother I've never had. Nothing like Luke who's my real brother."

"He seems nice."

"Oh he is. He's my bestie and he is very popular, but I'm not. He is the reason I won. He's the reason I know you. I love him. He's my family, my best friend and my only friend." she said with sadness. I saw tears well up in her eyes. A tear streaked down her cheek. I wiped it off.

"Hey, listen, as long as I'm around you are not aloud to cry." I said holding her cheek. It fit perfectly in my hand. She leaned into my chest. I leaned my head onto hers. I wish I could stay like this forever. I lifted my head and looked down at her and she looked back at me. She had piece of hair in front of her eye so I pushed it away. I leaned into her and I kissed her. She kissed me back. I was so surprised at first. I thought she liked Niall. Maybe she does, but she likes me too. Whatever, all that mattered was this moment. I could die right now and be happy. I pulled away and looked into her eyes. She smiled with tears welling up in her eyes again. She looked down at the floor.

"What did I say about crying?" I asked tilting her chin up so our eyes met.

"Those were sad tears. These are happy." she said clearly despite the tears.

"I'm glad I make you happy." I told her "But your still to pretty to cry."

"Thank you." she said wiping off the last of her tears.

'I can't believe I'm about to say this' I thought. "Stephanie, I lo-" I started but I got cut off by Liam telling us we were there. Dammit Liam I thought you were helping me. We got to the train station and I told Liam to come with me to the toilet. Once we were there I told him about our conversation and the kiss. I told him how he interrupted me telling her that I love him. I also told him about the picture I saw with her and Niall. "Well if you don't know if she loves you back then you can't tell her you love her. She must be at war with herself right now. You need to give her some time to think. Let me talk to her." he told me. "About if she loves me or not?!" I asked almost shouting while pacing back and forth."No! No, no, no. You cannot just go up to a girl and say 'Hey are you in love with Harry?' No we have to let her calm down before I ask her what's wrong." He explained. "Oh, good. We better be getting back." I said. "Yeah, let's go shopping!" he joked as we left the restroom. How was this all going to work? I don't know. Will it work? It has too.
