Gotta Be You ~*Finished*~

This is the story of how Harry Styles, of the hotest new boy band One Direction, fell in love with an American... BOY!?!? O.o

Jake just moved to London, like he has always wanted, and meets the boys of One Direction the same day he move. After living in London and getting to know the boys quite well, and the boys getting to know him quite well. Jake cannot hold back his feelings and tell Harry how he feels, but when Jake didn't hear what he knew he was going to, everything changed.


1. Another World

**One day there was a local signing by the band One Direction. My best friend Lakota wanted me to go with her. She was obsessed. Me not so much, well not as much as her atleast. At the signing, there was a huge line of screaming fangirls, and then there was me, the one guy in the entire line.

"Jake, OMG there they are!!" Lakota shouted over the crowd. I looked to see the table of the five boys, but could only really see Harry and Louis. "I can't wait, we are..." her voice faded in the background, I was looking at Harry, and he was looking back at me.

I could feel that I was the one he was looking at. But after I realized I was standing there like a love sick puppy, I snapped back to reality, and looked away nervously, hoping he didn't see my pathetic face. I looked back to see what he was doing, and he was laughing.

'Was he laughing at me?' I couldn't get the thought out of my head that I put him in this hysterical laughing fit. I started to blush a deep crimson, Lakota and Harry seemed to be the only two who noticed.

"Aww, what's gotten into you?" She says with a playful nudge. Harry has stopped laughing, and he is smiling shyly in my general direction.

We finally made it to the front of the line, and got our CDs signed. Harry was the last one to sign my CD, and he signed it with a heart after his name. 


Later that day, when I finally made it home, I opened the CD to put it into my stereo and a small piece of paper fell onto my bedroom floor. I set the CD down, and picked up the paper. It read ‘Call me after 5 p.m. XOXO <3.’ and a phone number was written after it. 

I looked at my clock, and realized it was almost nine o’clock. “Oh my god!” I freaked out looking for my phone, thinking that might have been a mistake and it was meant for Lakota, or maybe if by chance it was for me, that I might have blown him off.

I ran through my house flipping it upside down, and finally found it in the fridge. I thought back to remember what I was doing in there. I think I wanted some cold tea or something.

I ran back up to my room, ignoring the yells coming from my mother. When I finally made it back  to my room, I dialed number and waited for the call to go through. About four rings into it, I started to lose hope.

Just a second later, I hear that heavy tone with a sweet british accent. “Ello?” he said so calm and low toned.

“Hi.” I said as I started to get mesmerized by his voice.

“Who is this?” he asks sweetly. I was so out of focus. 

“You’re Harry Styles..” I said with a soft giggle.

“Yep, that’s me. So who is this?” His words were slightly more alarmed than before. I came back and realized that I was actually talking to the Harry Styles.

“Oh, sorry. I am the boy from your signing earlier, you put your phone number in my CD case, remember?” I felt so stupid, as if he would actually put it in with my CD.

“Oh yeah, you are that adorable boy that made me laugh so hard. I was starting to think you shrugged it off, and didn’t believe me.” He said with a bit of happiness in his voice. I went silent  for a bit, so shocked that Harry Styles thought I, of all people, was adorable.

“Hello? Are you still there?” he says with a bit of concern.

“Oh yeah, sorry. I just can’t get over the fact you gave me your number.” I say feeling really stressed out.

“It’s cool, just calm down and relax. You sound really tense like theres something wrong.” I could just feel the worry from his voice, and he doesn’t even know my name yet.

“Yeah, sorry. It’s just I have never known a celebrity before, except on twitter and tv. You just seem so down to earth.” I hear him chuckle, which makes a smile spread across my face.

“Well you seem loads of fun. By the way, I never got your name.” I started to blush and I think he could tell.

“My name is Jacob, and I am kind of glad you gave me your number.” I just mellowed out to the point he could probably tell I enjoyed hearing his voice.

“Jacob? I like that name. I think this might be the start of an amazing friendship.” He says with a very uplifting tone. We talked for about three hours, before he yawned.

“I think i’m gonna let you go.” I say giggling softly.

“But why?” he asks with a whiny voice.

“Because you are tired, and I don’t want to be the reason your bandmates are mad at you for not getting any sleep.” Slowly a smile spreads across my face.

“Fine, but I will get to talk to you tomorrow, right? Oh and just because you are such a cool bloke, I am gonna have to give you two ticks and two backstage passes for our next concert. I think Niall likes your friend.” His voice is growing with increased sleepiness.

“Harry you don’t have to do that.” My voice was defiant.

“Rubbish, it is the least I could do, for a simply amazing new friend like you.” I finally gave in just after midnight, and I gave him my address. We said our goodbyes, and hung up.


The next morning, I woke up and checked my twitter like I always do. My twitter was blown up. I had 200 new followers, and at least 25 mentions by none other than Harry himself, annd loads more by people i don't even know. I looked at my cell phone, and I had twenty texts from Harry, seeing if I was awake yet. I thought to myself, ‘This can’t be happening, no it’s too good to be true.’



Later that day at school, all of my friends asked my how I knew Harry Styles, because they saw my twitter. I just ignored them, and texted Harry.


To Harry:

Why did you do that to my twitter???


From Harry: 

B/c I had to sho off my new friend to EVERYONE!!! :-)


 I couldn’t believe that this was actually happening, all day I kept asking my friends to slap me awake, and I still had his texts starting at me. I couldn't help but smile every time I looked at my phone. Knowing it was Harry with something nice, or cheerful to say. It was almost as if I was dating him. I knew that would never happen though.

At lunch, I replied to the weirdest text from Harry.


From Harry:

What would you do if I licked your face? 


To Harry:

I would lick you back, duh! 


His response almost made milk go up my nose. 


From Harry:

Oh really now, we will have to see who gets the last lick. ;P


 I almost died because it was so awkward. I was so glad no one knew what it said.

After lunch, I went back to third period. I walked into the room a bit late, because I had to pee. Everyone was staring at me. I could see on their faces that I did something, but I didn’t know what it was. After I sat down the girl who sits right next to me in class, hands me a piece of paper and on it is a website, and a note saying to go to it. Everyone was still glancing at me. I felt really awkward. I typed in the web address, and saw it was a news article. It was an interview from Harry. My eyes widened, as I read.


“So, Harry, Who is this boy on twitter that you have been talking to recently?" My jaw dropped, as I read on.

“He is this boy I met at one of our signings, and he seemed like a totally chill dude. So I figured if i gave him some publicity, it might make him happier.”

“And you  say he only had 20 followers before you did this?”

“21 including me, yes.”

“And how many does he have now?” I waited for a second to collect myself before I read on.

“2,000 and rising, by the second.” I almost jumped out of my seat and ran out of the classroom knowing that was why everyone was looking at me, I felt so embarrassed. But instead I kept on reading, until I finished the article.

“Wow, that is outstanding, Harry Styles helping out an ordinary boy, become popular. Who would have thought Harry would be so generous with sharing his fame. So Harry Do you have any last words you would like to say to everybody out there?”

“Yes actually. If you want to meet a really nice laid back guy, follow Jake on Twitter... and I love you all.” After I read that, I almost died, Harry Styles gave me a shout out for everyone to see.

That night I texted Harry after looking at my twitter and all 10,000 followers. But instead of replying to my text, he gave me a ring.

“The concert is in 3 days, I can’t wait to see you there. You got the tickets and the backstage passes right?” His voice sounded like he needed to take a chill pill.

“Yes I got them, but I don’t know if I should go or not.” The tone in my voice must have upset him.

“But you have to. Please, I beg of you. You won’t be sorry.” His voice dropped to a heavy sadness.

“Fine, but please don't announce me anymore in interviews anymore, I just don't think I can handle all that attention. Please.” My voice pleading.

“ Okay, I promise, but I will introduce you to the boys no matter what.” I could just tell he was all bubbly and happy inside. Again, for the second night in a row, we talked until way late.

Finally the day of the concert arrived. I told Lakota about the tickets, I never told her the truth as to how I got them. “I won them from a contest.”

“I don’t believe you.” She didn’t believe me because she saw the tweets and the interview too. Either way, I would have taken her to the concert. None of my other friends really cared, so, Lakota it was.

After a day of school, and so many adorable texts from Harry, It was finally time for the concert.

When we got there the arena was packed, but thanks to Harry we had front row tickets. They were amazing. I could tell Harry was looking at me a lot too, It was cute, but a bit distracting to the rest of the audience, all the girls around me would scream thinking he was looking at them, when I knew he was looking at me for some reason.

After the concert Lakota and I went to the backstage entrance, showed the guard out passes, and he let us through. I saw harry, but not before he saw me and was about five feet away from me, in a full on run. The next thing I knew I was on the floor, Harry ontop of me, and Lakota laughing her ass off.

“You two act like a couple!” she said still giggling. My face turned a light rose color, clearly not as red as Harry’s. Harry stood up he was so embarrassed that my friend said that. He helped me up like a proper gentleman. We were both still blushing, and smiling like little kids. We walked and talked on our way to their room. Harry got his guards to let us in. It was just as I imagined it would be. A big room filled with comfy furniture.

“Louis, Zayn, Liam, Niall. This is the guy I was telling you about.” Harry says gesturing to me with a sheepish smile on his face. I instantly started blushing again. And the boys just laughed. Then they greeted us, and Niall started to talk to Lakota like they were best friends. Eleanor, Perrie, and Danielle were backstage too. While Louis, Zayn, and Liam were talking to me, and Niall was busy with Lakota, Harry was over talking to the girls.

“So you’re the infamous Jake, Harry keeps talking about?” Liam said bluntly sounding like he knew something I didn’t.

“Yeah. So what has Harry told you guys about me?” I tried not to sound like I needed to know.

“Well...” Louis started but then he stopped because Harry stopped him by covering his mouth.

“You promised!” Harry said quietly, but it loud enough that I could hear him. Louis notices that I heard what Harry said, so he whispers into Harry’s ear. I didn’t catch what he said. Liam and Zayn made sure of that.

“What did you do to make Hazza laugh like that at our signing last week?” Liam’s voice sweet, but determined to get my answer. “I don’t know. I guess I didn’t realize I was looking at him until I noticed he was looking back at me. I panicked and looked so weird. When I looked back to see if he was still looking at me, he was laughing so hard I thought he might pee his pants.” I admitted with a bit of pink in my cheeks.

Before I finished what I was saying Harry slipped away from Louis, and went back over to the girls, to finish what they were talking about.

“That is so funny.” Zayn says a smile spreading across his face.

“What was that all about?” I tried being quiet when asking Louis this time.

“It’s a long story, and I shouldn’t go further.” He pretends to zip his lips after that. Part of me really wanted to know, but part of me didn’t, just incase it was something too personal.

I can’t help but look past the boys to Harry. I guess they noticed, because Zayn said “You want to go over to Harry and the girls?” I blushed and tried to deny it.

“No, why would you say that?” It wasn’t very convincing, well at least not for Liam.

“Well you seem to be looking past us at Hazza. If you want to, we won’t stop you.” He sounded so sincere, like Lakota always does when I get shot down by a guy.

“No, really I don’t mind talking to you, and besides Harry looks busy. I would like to know where the restroom is though, I really have got to go.” I said trying to be nice. All three of them point to a door in one of the walls. “Thanks, I’ll be right back.” I said smiling as I walked to the door. 

I didn’t really have to go, I just said that so I could get some alone time and possibly work some extra confidence into me.

After about 5 minutes in the restroom, I heard a knock at the door. “Just a minute.” I said trying not to get all worked up.

“Jake? Are you okay?” Harry’s voice was so soft I didn't know how to respond.

“Yeah, why do you ask?” My voice trembled, not wanting to really know why he was so worried about me.

“Just wondering, Lakota just asked about you, and the boys said you’ve been in here for about 5 minutes now.” He sounded like he actually cared about me. The tone of his voice just matched Lakota’s pitch for pitch. I opened the door to find everyone but Harry was gone.

“Where did they go?” Harry could feel the concern in my voice.

“They went to dinner, I told them to go on ahead, and that I would wait for you.” His adorable smile was on his soft lips now, and I just wanted to kiss him, but I didn’t.

“Where are we going?” I asked instead.

“You’ll see.” Harry said with the biggest grin on his face.

The car ride was a bit awkward. It started with us sneaking out of the concert, surrounded by the paparazzi and screaming girls. When we were running to his car, Harry grabbed my hand so he wouldn’t lose track of me. “Hold on, I don’t want to lose you.” Harry shouted over the screams. So I did as he said, and refused to let go until he set me in the passenger seat of his car.

In the car, Harry could notice I wasn’t quite myself. “What’s wrong, Jacob?” His question broke the silence like a baseball hit through a window.

“Nothing.” I said sheepishly and quiet.

“Come now, you can trust me now. We have gotten really close since I gave you my number. So What is it?” His tone, so uplifting and saddened at the same time.

“Harry, I just don’t know anymore...” My voice trailing off into a mumble.

“Don’t know about what? Jake you know I will be able to keep it between us if it is needed.” He just makes me feel so at peace.  

“Harry...” My voice trembling not wanting to say it. “I... I... I have to talk to someone before I say anything.” My eyes were shut so tight I didn’t know what was happening.

“Jake, are you okay? This isn’t you, and I don’t like it. If you need to, go ahead and text someone. I won’t mind.” He sounded hurt, and I started crying. I felt the car pull to a stop, and Harry’s hand was placed on my shoulder.

“Jake, please don’t cry. I love you, and no matter what happens I always will.” Harry’s arms started to wrap around me, warm like a blanket. I could feel his tears dripping on my leg, while he stretched over the console in the car.

“Harry, I... I love you too. Thats why I was acting like that, I didn’t think you would feel the same way.” We were staring into each others eyes now. I knew this would be the start of something beautiful, and he did to. We sealed the moment with a kiss, and went to the restaurant where everyone else was waiting.

By the time we finally got to the restaurant there were crowds of screaming girls holding posters saying things like 'WE <3 YOU 1D' You know the usual. Harry parked out back, so the girls wouldn’t notice. After we parked and Harry got out of the car, and he opened mine for me. It made me blush.

When we got into Nandos we found the boys and sat down, they already had their food by then, but the fact that Harry and I hadn’t shown up yet didn’t stop them from eating.

“Where were you guys? Bumping uglies out back?” Louis said with a wink and a messed up grin like we actually did do something. I just turned red, and everyone laughed, except Lakota, she looked at me like I had murdered someone.

“Jake, can I talk to you?” Lakota said with a lot of concern in her voice.

“I’ll order for you.” Harry said with a smile sitting down next to Danielle. Whence we were out of earshot, Lakota nearly screamed her head off.

“Did you?”

“Did I what?” She could not believe that i was serious with what she asked.

“Did you have sex with him?” Her word so blunt they could take a solid oak door off it’s hinges.

“What?! Are you crazy? Of course not, we just kissed.” Her face lit up and I could tell she wanted to scream.

“OMG!!! I am so happy for you!” She said hugging me real tight. Harry must have heard loud mouth Lakota and decided to come check if we were okay, because there he was just a few feet away looking at us like we were idiots.

Lakota finally put me down and Harry walked us back to the table. When Harry pulled out my chair and I sat down everyone was smiling at me, the silence was killing all of them, I could see it. Louis couldn’t help but open his mouth.

“Did you ask him yet, or are you gonna wait till it’s private, so none of us know till morning?” I did a spit take, when Lou said that, I had no idea what he meant until Harry turned to me with a sweet smile on his face.

“Jake will you go out with me?” Harry’s words were so soft and touching, I started to cry slow but everyone saw it.

“Yes Harry, yes.” I tried to wipe away the tears while everyone else at the table was cheering and Harry was giving me a big hug.

“You won’t be sorry Jake, I will treat you like a queen. Erm, king, I don’t know, but what I do know is that I love you and you won’t regret loving me back.” Harry’s words only made me cry even more. 

After diner, I called my mom, to let her know that I would be fine and fly home as soon as I could, and that she had nothing to worry about. Harry was resting his chin on my other shoulder the entire time, tickling my neck.

When we got back to their hotel we went to their rooms and had a blast. Although Louis wanted to do a twitcam, so I waited with Eleanor and the other girls, they were so happy for me and Harry, they couldn’t stop talking about it. But since Harry made it very clear he didn’t want the public to know, no one mentioned it outside of a room.

While Harry and Louis were on twitcam Harry kept sending me hearts and smiley faces over text. Lakota was with Niall in his room, doing who knows what, but knowing Niall he was probably eating. That one night in DC was amazing and I wouldn’t have traded it for anything.**
