4. Chapter 4

"Harry! We have company, please come downstairs love." She returned to the living room and asked us if we wanted tea or anything.
"Cocoa! Cocoa!" Jai started bouncing up and down in my arms.
"I can make you hot cocoa!" Her name was Anne, and she was extremely sweet. Tickling Jai until he was almost out of breath, my mum and Anne talked amongst themselves while she made tea and hot cocoa. 
I sat back on the couch and held Jai in my arms, his blonde hair sticking up everywhere.
"Hello, you must be Alexis." A deep voice startled me from behind. I jumped up to face Harry; Harry Styles. I gasped, immediately recognizing who he was. 
"Err, yeah, you're Harry." I blurted out, sounding stupid already. He was in One Direction with my ex boyfriend. Smiling at me and nodding, he sat next to me.
"And who's this?" He cooed, looking at Jai. 
"I Jai!" He exclaimed, shying behind my shoulder. Jai got shy in front of people he didn't really know that well. I sat there awkwardly, not knowing what to say. I was in shock that Harry Styles was the boy my mum and Anne wanted me to meet. 
"I see you've met Harry!" My mum said as her and Anne joined us in the living room, breaking the awkward silence. 
"Yeah.." I smiled at him and he grinned back. 
"Lets go for a walk and talk." He suggested, standing up. I looked at my mum, asking her basically with my eyes if it was okay if I could go. 
"Bring Jai, Alexis." My mum smiled and continued her conversation with Anne. Jai grabbed onto my hand and we followed Harry outside.
"So, tell me about yourself." He said, pushing Jai on a swing. I looked down, not knowing what to say. 
"I don't really know to be honest. I like reading and playing soccer. I don't really have many friends though..." I said, not making eye contact with his killer green eyes. 
"Why not?" He asked.
"Well I dated this guy," I took a deep breath at the thought of him knowing Zayn, "and when he dumped me, no one really wanted to talk to me... It's been like that for about a year now, even after he left my school." I replied, hoping Harry wouldn't ask anymore questions.
"Did he dump you because he left your school?" Dammit, he was curious.
"No. Well not really, but I'm not sure because he left for a reason most people don't leave." I quickly noticed what I said and regretted it. Harry would ask about it and I knew it.
"Why did he leave?" I held my breath at the question and looked at Jai. He was laughing while Harry pushed him. 
"Well... He auditioned for the x-factor and ended up making it through..." I said quietly. This was going to do with a lot of explaining. 
"No way! Who is he?!" Harry seemed excited, probably because he would know who he was. I didn't say anything for a few seconds, in fear that bringing this up would cause trouble. "You can tell me, love."
"Zayn Malik." I barely managed to say. He didn't move, the swing hitting  him in the stomach. 
"Urgh!" He grabbed him stomach and looked at me, his eyes wide.
"Zayn did that to you? He used to talk about you all the time!" My heart skipped a beat, what the hell was this about?!
