5. Christmas Eve

"Okay, what about now," I said, adjusting the star on top of the tree. "Um, a little more to the left," I tilted it to the left. "There! It's perfect," she said. I climbed off the ladder. I stepped back to admire our tree. Abby's phone rang. "It's Harry." she picked it up. I felt a little... LITTLE... bit jealous. Um, hello. Shouldn't Harry be calling me? But, whatever. It's not like we were married. "Yeah. Uh huh. Really? Are you sure? I mean... I don't want to be in the way. You're sure it's okay with him? Yeah, of course. Of course. Yes. Okay, see you then," she hung up. "They're coming!" "When?" I said. "At seven." I kind of half moaned. "It's noon. That's seven hours." "I know. But everyone's coming; Louis, Harry, Niall, Zayn, Liam. And.... I hope you don't mind, I said it was okay if Louis brought Eleanor and Zayn brought Perrie," I got butterflies in my stomach. "Zayn's bringing Perrie!?" I said. "I know, I'm so excited to meet her!" I almost jumped out the window. I was dying to meet Perrie from Little Mix. She was my absolute role model. And I couldn't forget Eleanor. Eleanor Calder and Perrie Edwards would stand in my living room! And sit on MY COUCH! I thought it must be terrible for Liam to be in this crowd of couples after he just broke up with Danielle. Then I got a little dizzy. I most definitely did not belong there. Not with that crowd of glamour and X Factor winning talent and a model. I was starting to wonder if I could do it. "Hey, Abby?" I said. "Are you a bit nervous about... not fitting in? Louis is dating a model, and Zayn is dating an X Factor winning performer. And then there's me and you," I added quietly. "Oh, and I have one more little surprise," she said, completely ignoring my comment. "Harry said he arranged for a mystery guest to come meet us," she said. "It must be someone big, because he said he had to talk with Simon," Okay, um, wow, why was Harry bringing a celebrity guest to our little party of nine people? Because he can. Because he's Harry Styles. I shrugged like, what can you do? But a voice inside me screamed FANGIRL. I wasted one of the seven hours left of waiting on driving a half hour out, buying mistletoe, and hanging it over every doorway, in every room. Then I went back out and bought Harry a present, and an extra present for Abby. I also bought all the boys one, and the girls. I was desperate to waste that time. I also bought a new outfit for the little party. A I-N-C tanktop that was white. The two triangles at the top were silver and covered in sequins. I also bought some dark jeans and a cute jacket to go with the tanktop because it was freezing cold. I got a Cher Lloyd poster for Abby and a Prada bag to match Eleanor's and Perrie's. I got a gift certificate to Nando's for Niall, Prada bags for Eleanor and Perrie, for Zayn I bought a mirror as a gag gift, I got a t-shirt that says "Daddy Direction" on it for Liam, for Louis I got a striped shirt like the one he wore on tour, but this one was green and red. And for Harry. I stood in the mall for ten minutes just wondering what I should get him. Should I just get him a gift? Or should I get him a cute couples gift? And why was shopping for men so hard?! I called up Abby and asked her what to get him. "You can do what I did for Niall. Get him one of those things from that store," "Wow, that is brilliant. You're only missing a few details.... What thing from what store?" "Well, I got him one of those Brookstone frames that plays all of  the pictures I have of us," "Well, I have no pictures of Harry and I. I'll just look around in Brookestone." I did and I found a few things like hand lotion dispensers and music players, but none of them really said "I like you, a lot." My phone rang, and I hoped to see Harry's number. But instead I saw Abby's making the 'call me' sign and her phone number across the top. "I have a picture of you and Harry I took yesterday. You can get one of those frames that says like 'I Love You' on it. Put that in there," I sighed. "Wouldn't that be kind of rushing the relationship? I don't wanna scare him off." "If you don't want to scare him off, then don't come on too forward," "What was the first gift you got for Niall?" "Hey! Why don't you go online and buy some concert tickets?" "That's a good idea, actually. Thanks. But what band?" "I dunno. The Fray, Boyce Avenue? Maybe. Does he like Carolina Liar? Ed Sheeran, he's awesome." "Yeah, but, he knows Ed Sheeran, personally." "Does he like Adele?" "I got it. I'll just buy some Bruno Mars tickets. He doesn't have to go if he doesn't like them. Thanks for the idea." "You might want to come home soon." "What time is it?" "Six," she said. I bought the tickets on my phone and left the mall. I came home at six thirty, and Abby was in her outfit, too. Her favorite light blue shirt that said "Make Believe, Not War" that was a little faded and looked great on her. She was also wearing her fancy denim jeans, and cowboy boots. She curled her pretty blond hair. "You look nice," I said. "Thanks," she said. "Did you buy Louis a birthday present?" she asked me. "Yeah. And Christmas presents for everyone." "Wow. Even me?" "No duh!" "Nice. Okay, they'll be here in like fifteen minutes. Go get changed," I got changed into my nice outfit and came downstairs. "Oh God," she said. "I feel under-dressed," She had put out snacks like chips and Pizza Rolls. And she was going to order a pizza later. That was our tradition; we never had fancy dinners. It was overrated anyways. The doorbell rang. I answered it. "Hello," Harry said. We hugged and everyone flooded into the room. Abby was hugging everyone, giving Harry, Louis, Zayn and Liam a quick squeeze, and giving Niall a big hug and a kiss. Everyone got introduced. "Um, Abby and Madeleine, this is Eleanor and Perrie," Liam said. "Hi," Abby said. "Oh my God. I am such a huge fan of Little Mix," she gushed. "Aw, thanks," Perrie said. She was so pretty! "I'm Madeleine," I said. "I'm Perrie," she responded. "I can't believe this!" Abby whispered to me as she made her way across the room to meet Eleanor. I wanted to follow, but I didn't. "Um, hi!" she said. "Hey," Eleanor said. "I'm Eleanor," she said. "I'm Abby. I love your top," she said. "Thanks! I absolutely adore your shoes," she couldn't stop staring at her laced up Converse knee-high boots. "Thanks so much. Um, this is my best friend, Madeleine," she said, introducing me. "Madeleine, this is Eleanor," she said as if they were long-time friends and I was the new kid. "Hello, I'm Eleanor. Oh my God! I have that same top at home!" This was the best night of my life. "Really? That's so cool." After I'd met everyone, I went to find Harry. "Hi," I said. "Hey," he said. "It was really sweet of you to come," I said. "You look like you're having a good time with Perrie and Eleanor," I smiled like a fool. "Um, yes! They're so nice. Eleanor has the same top!" I gushed. "I'm glad you're having a good time," I looked at Harry. Our eyes locked there for a minute. This really was the best day of my life.
