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.


2. Stole My Heart


I woke up today, the day I was set to move to London. “It was all just a dream?” My groggy voice deep and low. “Damn, it felt so real. I hate my dreams.” I looked at my twitter feed, there were so many farewells same with facebook. I couldn’t believe it, just ten years ago I had a dream of moving to London, and today was finally the day. I took a shower and got dressed, and then I made sure the things I was taking with me were in suitable luggage bags. I was making myself some breakfast when my phone rang. “OMG!!! I can’t believe you are actually leaving, I am so gonna miss you.” Lakota’s voice so heart warming, it made me cry. “Oh Jake don’t cry, today is the day you have been waiting for. I asked my mom to take me to the airport to see you off. I also convinced a few others to come too.” She sounded so happy even though I knew she would cry when we were at the airport. “Kota I love you, you are the best friend I could ever ask for.” I heard a soft sniffle on the other end, and knew she already started crying. “I’ll see you in a bit, so hurry up we are all gonna miss you, so don’t keep us waiting any longer than what we have to. Love you.” The phone was hung up before I could say another word. With that I made my breakfast a quick one.
When I got to the airport I didn’t know what to do. After I stepped through the front doors, and into the terminal, I heard a scream. Lakota. She was standing there with Shannon, his girlfriend Hannah, Brandon and his girlfriend Kennedy. I walked up to them after not seeing any of their faces for the past two years, and started to cry. They all hugged me at the same time telling me to stop crying, or else they would start too. “Jake, please stop you are going to get all of there. This is suppose to be a happy time for you, you are finally getting your dream.” Shannon’s words were just as I remembered, and yet so much more. Instead of stopping I only cried more. “Jacob, snap out of it. Shannon is right, this is your dream, you should be happy.” Kennedy said all grown up, no longer the self mutilator that she was in high school. I just hugged her tight. “Come on Kenny, let the rest of us have a piece of him.” Hannah said with her usual bittersweet tone. I laughed. “Come on now, stop those tears, or am I going to have to slap some sense into you?” I hugged Hannah close, making sure she didn’t slap me. “Good luck Bobby.” Brandon’s words were short and sweet, as always, but I gave him a hug too. “My name isn’t bobby anymore, it is back to the original Jacob.” I said with a chuckle. He just smiled and gave his signature thumbs up. I finally made it to Lakota. I just looked at her for one second, and she burst into tears. I hugged her tight, and told her, “Kota, I should be the one crying, not you. After all I am the one making this silly decision.” I smiled and looked at her face. The next thing I knew, she slapped me. “Don’t say that. This is your dream, it’s not silly, it’s what you have always wanted so don’t be so hard on yourself. We love you and you deserve to be happy after the crap you’ve had to deal with.” Tears streamed down her face for her entire rant. I didn’t care that she slapped me, I just didn’t like it when she cried. I only hugged her closer. “Well don’t cry, because it will ruin your pretty face.” I said with a smirk. She only stood there, amazed that I didn’t do anything after she slapped me, and pretty hard too. I hugged them all one last time, and walked up to the counter and handed the stewardess my ticket. I waved them bye as I boarded the plane, and saw Lakota crying one last time before I was out of sight.
On the plane I was a bit nervous, as to what I would do when I got to London. After it was safe to turn out electrical devices back on, I checked my twitter. There was an I love you, from Lakota, but that’s about it, for tweets directed at me. I updated my status to ‘On the plane, London Here I Come!’ A few minutes later I got a direct message from @JohannahDarling, Louis Tomlinsons’ mother. A few months back we actually became friends, and she said she would love to know when I actually was on my way. In the dm she said ‘Honey, cannot wait for you to land in a couple of hours, and don’t worry about your means of transportation, I have got it covered.’ At first I figured it was for someone else, so I shrugged it off, and decided to take a nap so the journey wouldn’t seem so long. And that is just what I did. By the time I woke up, we were landing. I couldn’t believe it, I was actually in London.
After the painstaking checks and airport routines, I started walking towards the exit, and noticed a person holding a sign, with my name on it. “That’s me.” I said to the man with the sign. He looked a lot like a shoufer. “Then please follow me.” The man’s voice was stern and stiff, like a very civil man. Of course I followed him, because that is what people do when there is a person holding a sign with their name on it. He brought me out to a cab, loaded my bags into the trunk, and told me to have a seat in the back. I did as I was told. Then he spoke to the driver, giving him directions to a certain residence. I had no clue where anything was, so I went with it.
On the ride to wherever it was I was being taken, I asked, “How much do you think it will cost for the drive?” The driver looked at me like I was crazy or something. “Your ride has already been paid for.” He could tell I was shocked, so he explained further. After he explained that a woman set up my cab ride, I remembered the dm from Johannah. ‘Could this be what she meant?’ the words buzzed through my head about ten more times, before the cab came to a complete stop, outside of a local cafe. He told me this was my stop, and that the woman who organized this was inside the cafe. I got out and grabbed my things from the trunk, and entered the cafe. People just stared at me like I was some kind of a freak. Until one woman who was sitting with a younger boy, looked at me. “Jacob, over here.” She waved me over. “You must be Johannah.” I said with a smile. “Please, sit down. We are happy you could make it.” She said in a happy and cheerful tone, that I have never experienced before. I only smiled brighter. “So, this is my boo bear.” She said gesturing to the young man at the table. He looked like he was incognito or something. “It is a pleasure to meet you, but actual names are better for me, then I can understand nicknames.” I said with a chuckle as I extended my hand to shake with his.He took my hand and shook it, but didn’t say a word. “Is he okay?” I asked Johannah with a bit of concern. “He’s just fine, a bit rude, but fine.” She said giving him a look that read ‘Be nice or else.’ “Can we just get out of here?” He finally said, but as a hushed whisper. “Fine but only because you are being so fussy. Jacob grab your things and come with us.” Her expression went from aggravated too happy in record time. “Uh, sure.” I said slightly confused, but I did what I was told, and ended getting into a black car with tinted windows.
After Johannah pulled away and we got a ways away from the cafe we were at, the young man took his hat and sunglasses off. “The name’s Lou.” He said while I was looking at my phone, so I didn’t realize he was talking to me. “Jacob? Hello?” He said trying to get my attention. “What, sorry, I was just waiting for a text from a friend...” My voice trailed off as I looked up to the now fully visible face of Louis Tomlinson. I guess my face surprised him, because he looked at me like I was a totally different person from what I was just moments ago.”Are you okay?” His voice concerned, just like my friends from back home. I finally snapped back to reality. “What? Oh yeah I’m fine, sorry I just didn’t expect it to be you...” I felt so embarrassed, and he just started to laugh. “Mum, you didn’t tell me he was a male directioner.” He said still giggling. “I’m sorry, I didn’t think it really mattered.” She said looking in her rearview at her son. “Well it is wonder to know that you decided to help a stalker out.” He said with a smirk, as he glanced back at me. “He is a very nice boy, not some creepy weirdo.” She said with a stern tone, which made Lou stop laughing. “Actually I have wanted to live in London since I was eleven years old.” I said with a shy tone. “Really? What for? London is such a gloomy dank city.” Lou’s voice actually sounded serious, but then he started to laugh. “I’m only kidding. So which one of us are you stalking?” He said jokingly and nudging me with his elbow, like we were the best of friends.I didn’t say a word, but I could tell my face was getting red. “You know I was only kidding, right?” He looked at me with concern like he thought he upset me. “Lou, Look what you have done now, you have gone and upset the boy, not even twenty four hours in London.” Johannah scolded him. “No I’m not upset, sadly Lou is right, I do like one of the boys, but I am not a stalker just a lost heart.” They both look shocked, and Johannah almost ran a red light, she was so surprised. “You do?” Lou’s words were trembling and I could tell he didn’t want it to be him. “Lou...” Johannah said with more shock than before. “It’s okay, really it is. Lou, I won’t tell you who, but I will tell you that it isn’t you.” Lou’s face went from pale too full of color, so relieved.
The rest of the car ride was fun, Lou had so many questions, but I didn’t answer them all. We pulled up to a building that looked really nice, the sign on the front read ‘London Realty’. Johannah handed me a paper, and told me to ask for a flat close by the address written on it. I got out of the car, and they said they would wait for me. I did as she asked of me, and I found a really nice one that was just a few doors down from the address. I got the information, and asked if I could see the residence before I made my final decision. The man kindly obliged, and said if I was with the woman outside, that he didn’t need to come with me. I walked back to the car, and told Johannah the address, and she drove me there. We walked through the nice flat, and I decided that I would take it. We went back to the agency and I filled out the paperwork to rent the flat. And somehow I got the first year free of charge. But I didn’t question it.
After all of that was done, Johannah dropped me off and said when I get done to go to the address on the paper she gave me earlier. The flat came with a bed and a couch left by the previous renters. It was a nice place spacious, and I started unpacking. By the time I finished it was getting close to ten at night. I was so ready to pass out, but then I remembered that I was suppose to go to the address just a few doors down. I was just about to leave when I heard a knock at my door. “Who is it?” I asked as I opened the door. “Jacob, I thought you were asleep.” Lou said with a smile on his face. “I just got done unpacking, and remembered I was suppose to come over.” I said with a tire grin on my face. “Oh well, Let me walk you over.” He said with a smirk, holding his arm out like I was a lady he was escorting. “Do I look like Eleanor, or a woman for that matter, to you?” My voice caught him  off guard. “No, sorry. I just...” I stopped him mid-sentence by putting up my hand. “I told you, you are not the one. I thought you were relieved by the fact that it wasn’t you?” I said raising an eyebrow. Lou just stood there blushing. “I’m only joking, but what would Eleanor say if she saw the two of us?” I said with a smirk while i took his arm. He laughed as we left my flat. The night air was chilly, but the warmth of Louis was enough to hold me out until we got to his place. “Here we are. Casa de Tommo... And Hazza.” He said with a sweet smile, and a joking wink.
The inside of the house was amazing. Nothing less for a band who was at the top of the charts, the past three years running. All the boys were there, and so were their girlfriends. I was wearing a nice new coat I bought before the trip, and a lovely hat that hid all of my hair. I guess when we  walked in Eleanor saw us, and must have assumed I was a girl, with my facial features being so feminine, and my slim figure. Boy did she look angry. “You must be Eleanor.” I said pulling my hat off. Seeing that I was clearly a man, must have eased her a bit, but I could tell she was tense. “Just for the sake of curiosity, why were you on Lou’s arm when you walked in?” She sounded a bit uneasy, as though she didn’t really want to know the answer to her own question. “You have nothing to worry about. I mean even if Louis was bi, he would stick with you. I mean you are just gorgeous, and I’m this mess.” I said with a laugh. She laughed too. I think that got her feeling better. I walked away to put my coat up, when all of a sudden out of nowhere a pair of arms wrapped around my waist. I didn’t know what to think. When I finally was released, I turned to see Harry. That was when I blacked out. I woke up later to find myself lying on a couch with a sleeping Harry at my feet. I must have fainted and bonked my head. I tried to get up from the couch without waking him. I managed to get two feet away before he woke up. “Jake, where are you going, you need your rest.” He said walking me back to the couch. “How do you know my name?” He could tell I sure didn’t know how he knew it. “Johannah. She has been talking about you for months now. I just put her description of ‘a wonderful, adorable, and kind hearted person’ with your face. I guess I was right in doing so.” His smile was so sweet, and his green eyes were so deep, I couldn’t look away. “Are you okay?” He asked with a chuckle. “Yeah, I just need something to drink.” I said while I was trying to get up off the couch again, and again Harry tried to stop me. “I’ll go and get you some water.” He said jumping to his feet and disappearing around the corner. That’s when I noticed Louis looking at me like he knew some dirty little secret about me. “Lou come here, please.” I said in a soft tone, and he obeyed. “Yes?” His smirk still staring me in the face. “Why are you looking at me like that?” I was hoping Harry would take a long time, so I could have a chat with Louis. “I can see it. I can see you like him. It’s all in your eyes.” My eyes grew wide. “Please don’t tell Harry, I would die if he knew.” My voice pleading like a child wanting a new toy. “I don’t know...” He stopped mid-sentence when I grabbed his wrist and pulled him close. “You better not tell Harry, or I will have to tell Eleanor that you holding my arm wasn’t just a slip up.” My words hit him hard and his smirk was gone. I released his arm, and apologized for the tight grip and what I said. He accepted it, and promised he wouldn’t tell Harry. I was so relieved, and that was when Harry walked back in carrying 3 bottles of water. “Lou I’ve got this, go be with Eleanor, I’m sure she is missing you.” His words were harsh and uneasy. “Harry it’s fine, we were just talking, and besides I still haven’t met the other boys.” Harry’s face softened, and a smile appeared. “How about we take you to go meet them.” Louis’ words seemed to irritate Harry’s ears. “Or we could go get them and bring them here.” Harry’s voice was cold and harsh. “I can walk. I only passed out. It’s not like I almost died.” There went Harry getting calm.  I didn’t think much of it, and got up off the couch. “Okay.” Harry said standing as well.
All the boys were up stairs. The girls were there too. After I formally introduced myself, I sat with the girls and chatted a bit. I couldn’t stop myself from looking at Harry every once in awhile though. “Jake, do you fancy one of them?” Perrie’s question struck me hard, and I didn’t know what to say. All I did was blush. “I think he does, girls.” Danielle’s comment only made me blush more. “I know who it is.” My head shot up and eyes grew wide when Eleanor said that. A collective ‘Oooo’ chimed from them all. “What?!” My voice was loud enough that the boys, who were across the hall now, heard me. “Is something wrong in here?” Niall poked his head in the door, and looked at me, red faced and looking like I was going to explode. “Nothing.” all four of us said at once. We sat there quietly till we were sure he was back over with the boys. “How do you know?” I managed to keep my voice down this time. “Isn’t it obvious?” Her words struck me like the back of a hand, but then I got an idea. “Oh yeah? If it is so obvious, which one is it?” A smirk spread across my face, and she started looking a little pale. Not a moment later she regained her color and a smirk on her face and said, “Harry.” I tried playing it as cool as I could, “What are you talking about? I wouldn’t date some self absorbed teen heartthrob like him.” The girls’ mouths just dropped to the floor. I guess my response wasn’t what they expected. I felt so bad and guilty so I told them the truth, and I made them all swear not to tell him. I also apologized for how i worded my first answer.
After that exhausting night, I ended up sleeping on the couch I woke up on. When I woke up the next morning I smelled pancakes. I walked to the kitchen. “OH MY GOD.” I said seeing Harry standing there in nothing but a pair of boxer shorts. “What, is something wrong?” Harry whipped around and started walking toward me. “Why are you not wearing clothes?” I tried not to look down or look at him at all. “This is how I always make breakfast. Do you want some?” His words so sincere. “Not unless you plan on putting on a pair of pants.” He looked at me like I thought it was  crime to be half naked in his own home. “Of course I’m going to put on trousers. I do have places to go today.” He sounded so confused. “I meant before we eat.” I said with a giggle. “No actually, Lou doesn’t seem to mind. Sometimes I’m naked when we have breakfast.” His face lit up with a huge grin. “Thank god you decided to wear your boxer shorts this morning.” My words were very sarcastic and Harry could tell. “So you want me to take off my shorts? Okay.” Harry says with a smirk reaching down to pull his shorts off. “Harry, not in front of our guest.” Niall yawned, as he walked into the  kitchen, catching Harry off guard. “Niall. I wasn’t doing anything.” Harry whipped around blushing. “Sure you weren’t. Now go put some trousers on and wake up the others.” Niall’s voice was so groggy, but never the less he still went straight for the food. Harry ran up stairs. “Jake, Harry knows.” Niall’s voice cut the air like a hot knife through butter. “What? What does Harry know?” My voice was trembling and i couldn’t stop it. “He know you like him.” Every word was so clear even tho he had a mouth full of bacon. “What? How? How did he find out?” I was so devastated I didn’t know what to do, so I sat next to Niall. “He overheard you talking with the girls last night. Now I just think he’s trying to exploit it.” His words hit me like a rock. “I can’t believe Harry would do such a thing.” I was crying, and I couldn’t stop. Niall tried to comfort me, but I had to get out of there.I ran out the front door as Harry was coming down the stairs.

Harry walked into the kitchen confused. “Where is Jake going in such a hurry?” “Home I guess.” Niall’s words plain and simple. “Why would he do that after i spent so much time making breakfast?”  Harry was still confused. “He had to know Harry.” Niall’s word broke him free of his confusion, and he just knew by the look in Niall’s eyes what had been said. Harry shot out the front door barefoot and in pajamas. After running for a bit he walked back. He didn’t know where I lived.

When he got back he went and sat on the couch I slept on. After sitting and sulking for about five minutes he heard a phone ring, but it wasn’t one he had heard before. After searching for the source he found a cell phone in the couch, my cell phone. He answered the call. “Hello?” He said into the phone thinking it belonged to one of the girls. “You’re not Jake. Where is my Bobby? And who are you?” Lakota was freaking out, she said she would call me after midnight her time, but it wasn’t me on the other end. “You know Jake? Who’s Bobby? It’s me Harry. Who are you?”  Harry’s voice was quiet so the others wouldn’t hear him. “Ha ha very funny Jacob. You totally got me, so how was your first day in London?” Lakota thought it was just a joke with me speaking in my british accent. “What are you talking about, my name is Harry, you know Harry Styles?” Harry was getting confused. “Jake cut the crap, it was fun at first but now it’s getting old.” Lakota was getting mad, and Harry could feel it. “Ma’am my name is Harry Styles. I think I found Jake’s phone in my couch. Do you know his address so I may return it?” Harry heard a gasp and then what sounded like the phone being dropped. “Hello? Are you still there? Hello?” Harry said trying not to get too loud. “Yeah, sorry. So it really is you? Harry Styles? On my best friend’s phone?” She was acting as though she might have a heart attack. “Haven’t I already established that? Yes it is Harry Styles. Now do you know Jacob’s address?” Harry was starting to get worried. “No, sorry. Maybe Louis’ mom knows, Jake did say he started talking to her on twitter.” Lakota’s helpful word made Harry run to the kitchen. “Lou! Does your mum know where Jake lives?” Harry sounded very worried at this point. “Why do you care, you just want to see if he actually does like you. Harry look what’s happening to you. this is not the Harry I use to know.” Lou’s words hit Harry hard. Hard enough to loosen his grip on my cell phone, and it fell to the floor.  

Later that day, Lou stopped by my place with my phone. “Harry found it.” He said as he handed it to me. “Please tell me he isn’t with you.” My word started trembling again. “No, only Eleanor. She wants to talk with you, and I want to as well.” Lou’s words were very serious. “Well it wouldn’t be very nice of me to just let you stand there, so come in, I was just making some coffee. Would you like some?” I said opening the door all the way and gesturing towards the parlor. “No thank you. We just had some tea back at my place.” Lou said sitting down on my couch.

We talked for about two hours, about what happened, and how sorry they were for Harry’s behaviour. I told them it wasn’t their fault but they explained that harry left to use the bathroom, and how Eleanor heard something in the hall when I was with the girls last night. I still insisted that it wasn’t their fault, and that I never should have said anything about it in the first place. The whole time we were chatting, I kept telling myself how stupid I was, until i accidently said it out loud and started to cry. “Jake don’t cry love, it will be okay.” Eleanor said taking the seat next to me to comfort me. “Why shouldn’t I cry. I was so stupid for even mentioning it. I wish it never had happened.” the tears streamed down my face, and my sobs were starting to get loud, but then a hand touched my face and whipped away a tear. When I opened my eyes, it was Lou standing there with a smile on his face. “It will be okay Jake. Here soon me and the boys are going on tour, and hopefully Harry will forget the whole thing.” His word comforted me and Eleanor’s hug made me smile. Knowing I had Lou and Eleanor there made things so much better.

Three months went by since I spoke to Harry last. Louis and the others really wanted to stop all of this, I did to. But how could Harry do something to hurtful and stupid, and to think he was so sweet before all of this.

Harry came to my place after he finally found out where I lived. It surprised me that's for sure. "Harry, what are you doing here?" as if i didn't already know. "I came to apologize." his words so sincere I didn’t think this was happening. "You came to apologize? I thought you came to make fun of me again." A tear slipped and rolled down my cheek, but before it could make it halfway down my face Harry wiped it away. “Please don’t cry. I didn’t mean to hurt you. I am truly sorry for what I have done. Just please don’t cry, it will only make me feel worse.” I looked him in the eyes and could see him struggling to hold back the tears. “Harry, if it makes you feel better, I just want this to start over.” My expression was still sad, btu harry seemed a bit happier. “I would like that.” He said face breaking into a full smile. “Oh and because of your little stunt, I officially don’t like you like that anymore.” I said with a smirk and a little chuckle. He laughed and things went to normal from there. Every once in awhile i would go have lunch or dinner with the boys, and sometime I would have even spent the night, and woke up to harry ‘in pants’ making breakfast.
