Little Things

Jenny is just an average teenage girl who works at a pet store. One day while she's working though a certain boy and his friend appear in the shop. They talk for awhile a start to become really good friends. But will something spark between the friendship? If so, what would others say? How would they react? Would things go good? Or bad? You'll just have to read the story if you want to find out ;)


16. An Excuse


I watched him leave through the window with a constant smile on my face. I leaned against the wall, and just smiled like a pumpkin, then I realized he left his blazer on me. I grabbed my phone and texted him:

“You left your blazer here, sorry I totally forgot!”

“I know:) Guess I have an excuse to visit you a little sooner;)”

“Cunning…then see you soon!xx”

“Good night!xx”

I carefully went up to my room, and since I was way too happy to sleep, I went on twitter and tumblr. I reminded myself that I promised to the girls that I’ll inform them as soon as I get home, but it was too late so I just wrote a message: “Sorry I didn’t call, I got home quite late, I’ll tell you everything tomorrow. Oh, and PS: sadqwaas:DDD” A little later I felt myself start to drift asleep, so I just jumped into my PJ’s and my comfy bed and fell asleep.  

Saturday was boring. I had to practice a lot, because the date of the dance performance was close, and we learned extra hard steps. Then I have my GCSE very soon, so I had to study hard. Of course I called the girls, and told them everything about the date. They were very impressed. We also agreed. that we should start deal with the school-prom. We had plenty of time until that, it was after the exams, at the last weeks, but we wanted to start, so we set a date, Friday, when Violet and I are going to sleep at Sissy’s. At dinner time, the whole family was sitting in the kitchen.

“You have to look after Laura tomorrow. Dad and I are going to your aunts. We’ll only be back late at night.” mom said.

“You could have told me earlier, but ok. When will you go?”

“About 10 in the morning.”

‘Great, I won’t be able to sleep enough…again.’ I thought. Later, I went to watch one of the Harry Potter films, but I didn't really concentrated on it. Harry was on my mind. He hasn't called all day, not even messaged, and it made me worried. Maybe he doesn't want to see me anymore. Maybe he just pretended to enjoy our date. But maybe he’s just busy, I mean, he’s in One Direction…he must be busy… The next thing I knew, I woke up to the sound of huge check figures crashing, my neck’s hurting like hell. I switched off the TV and went to sleep. *Knock, knock, knock* I growled as I climbed out of my bed. I out on some sweatpants and a tank top,and put my hair into a messy bun.

“Jenny!!! We’re going to spend the day together!” Laura shouted, running towards me.

I picked her up and kissed her cheek.

“I know. Did you have breakfast yet?”


“Then let’s say goodbye to mom and dad, then we’ll make something, Ok?”


I giggled and walked to the door, where we waved to our parents and closed the door. Making pancakes with Laura was always fun, and messy.

After breakfast I turned on some cartoons to her while I cleaned up.

“Let’s build a Lego house!”

“Ok, I’ll bring it.”

We were building a castle, until I heard the doorbell rang.

“I’ll be right back.”

I stood up and opened the door. To my biggest suprise, Harry was standing there.


I said feeling a little embarrassed, since I looked like a mess. Messy hair, no make up, probably with bags under my eyes since I spent most of my bed-time on the couch. I blessed the moment, when I decided to wear my new sweatpants, not the old one, but I still felt uncomfortable.

“Hi! Sorry, I should have called, but I was busy. Do you want to hang out now?”

“I’d love to, but my parents aren't home, so I have to look after my sister. But…you can come in…if you want.”

“Yeah, sure!”

I moved, so he could come in.

“So…that is my parents room, my sister’s room, bathroom, kitchen and the living room.” I said pointing to the doors.

“Where’s your room?”

“Upstairs. Come on in, my sister will jump out of her skin.” He giggled as we walked into the living room. After a long argument with myself in my head, I decided not to go change cause it would be more awkward going upstairs like that, and coming back in jeans or something.

“Harry, this is my little sister Laura. Laura this is Harry.”

“Hi!” Harry smiled at her.

She looked at me, waved and then whispered into my ear: “Does he sing the beautiful?”

“Yes, he does.” I laughed.

They immediately got on well. Harry helped her build a car. They were so cute, I couldn’t help but smile like an idiot. After Laura ruined Harry’s creation, he started to tickle her. She was screaming and laughing and pouncing Harry’s hand. He stopped and helped her sit up. Her beautiful little curls (that were scarily so much like Harry’s, just hers were a little lighter) all in her face. He tucked them behind her ears.

“You’re just as beautiful as your sister.” he said looking at me.

I covered my face with my hands as I blushed.

“And she’s even cuter when she’s blushing” he laughed.

“Aww, stop it!” I whined.

Laura leaned to my ears and whispered: “Let’s sing the beautiful together!”

“No, I won’t sing. But ask Harry! I’m sure he’ll sing it with you.”

“Will you sing with me Harry?”

“Yeah, sure! If your sister joins us.”


“Please Jennyyy!” Laura whined.


“Pleaseee!” Harry joined.

“Nooo! I’m gonna bring you two something to drink while you sing it.”

I stood up, walked into the kitchen , took 3 glasses and some apple juice, knowing it’s Harry’s favorite  After a while, it was time for Laura to go to have a nap.

“Honey, you should go to sleep now.”

“But Jenny! I don’t want to! I promise I won’t be moody. Please let me watch a cartoon with you two!”

I looked at Harry, I didn't want him to feel obligated or something, but he enjoyed our little babysitting kind of day as much as Laura and I did.

“Hey baby girl, do you like the lion king?”

Harry asked her as he picked her up and carried her to the couch.

“Yes, yes, yes! Can we watch it Je-Je?”

“Je-Je?” Harry laughed.

“Yeah, haha. When she was a little baby and couldn't talk, she used to call me Je-Je. And of course we can. Which one?”

“The first!”

“Noo! That always makes me cry!”

“Aww, don’t worry Je-Je” he emphasized the little nickname that I only accepted from my sister. I shoot him a death-glare and he laughed.

“We’ll be here for you if you need a shoulder to cry on.” he giggled, and I stuck my tongue out for him. We sat down and it started. At Mufasa’s death, I didn't look, cause I didn't want to cry in front of him. He just laughed and put one of his arms behind my neck. Laura, who was sitting between us, eventually fell asleep, so I carried her to her room, tucked her in, and went back to Harry quietly.

“I’m impressed ! You just casually walk in here, and just light up the mood.” 

“yeah, you know spending so much time with Lux has its effects.” he smiled.

“What do you wanna do now?” he asked. “Well, actually I should start making the dinner.”

“You can cook?”

“Well…yeah, a little.”

“Can I help?”

“If you want to…Are you staying for dinner?”

“Yeah sure!”

“Great! What do you want to eat?”

“Let’s see what we have, and then we’ll see.”

We put whatever we found on the counter and stood in front of it. 

“Do you like lasagna ” he asked.

“Yess!! And I haven’t eaten it for so long? You like it too?”


“Then lasagna  But don’t forget one thing…this is MY kitchen, so the only one who can get out of it if it’s necessary is you!” I laughed.

“Are you going to tell an inside joke every time we meet?”

“Is it bothering you?”

“Not really.” he smiled.

“Then yes”

Since lasagna is pretty easy to make, when we put it into the oven he asked me to show him my bedroom.

“Ok, if you won’t freak out” he laughed and followed me.

“Jeez! You can’t miss it.” he said as he saw my door. It used to have a glass in the middle of it, but I covered it with posters so no one could see through. The posters were mainly about Justin Bieber, Twilight, Vampire Diaries, a few female and male singers, just my favorites except for 1D. I had a special spot in my room for them. I opened the door, and let him in.  


Harry’s POV

I walked into her room, and looked around. Purple walls, purple curtains, the furniture’s light pine. Her bed was covered with pillows and several animal toys, and surprisingly she had a Winnie the pooh bed cover. I raised my eyebrow and looked at her. 

“Winnie the pooh?” I laughed.

“Don’t laugh at me! It’s cute, and it’s always been my favourite cartoon.” she pouted.

“I’m just kidding! It really is cute.” I hugged her seeing she was still pouting.

I continued studying her room. Her wall covered with pictures, except the one above her bed. It was covered with 1D stuffs. I slightly laughed at it, and turned around. In front of her window, there was a window-seat. A laptop on her table, under it her school bag, and loads of paper all over the table. In front of the bed, there was a TV, and a door led out to the balcony.

“You have a really pretty room.”

“Thank you.”

“Can I go outside?”

“Of course!”

We went out to the balcony. There was a telescope, a chair and a small table there. It wasn't that big, but there was perfectly enough space for two people, and the view of the garden was amazing.

“Oh, before I forget!” she said and went back to the room. I followed her, and she handed me my blazer.

“Thank you!” she said.

“Anytime” I whispered as I kissed her cheek.

“I think we should check the lasagna” she whispered, slightly embarrassed.

We went to the kitchen, and I took it out of the oven, while she put 3 plates and forks on the table. A few minutes later her little sister came to us, rubbing her eyes. Jenny picked her up, and I studied them both while they were talking. They were so much alike. The same hair color  big eyes, their nose, and a little the shape of their faces.

“Let’s eat then!” she said.

We sat down and started to eat. I giggled at them cause her sister didn't stop talking, and Jenny wanted her to eat. Then when she finally ate, she did it like a pig. Food was all over her face and clothes.

“Ok, I have to tell you that she’s not like this. She can eat properly I think she just wants to impress you or something. Get your attention maybe?” she laughed. “Do you fancy him Laura?” She went all shy and nodded, Jenny and I both giggled.

“But you do too! You always stare at their pictures on your blog…”

“Shush!” she interrupted.

“You have a blog?” I asked cheekily. She was embarrassed, that was obvious which made it sure.

“Is it on tumblr?” 

“Yep” she sighed.

“I’m a tumblr Directioner, and you Laura can’t eat more chocolate today because of telling him!” 

“What’s your URL?”

“Please…you really think I’m so fool that I’ll give it to you? No way!”

“We’ll see” I winked.

After dinner, her sister went to watch TV, and I helped Jenny clean up.

“You really don’t have to help, I got this.” she said.

“Don’t worry! By the way…I was thinking and…um…would you like to go to the amusement park sometimes?” She started to smile widely.

“Yeah, sounds great!”

“Perfect. How about Saturday?”

“Yeah, that’s good for me.”

“I’ll pick you up, ok?”

“Umm…actually I’ll sleep at my friend on Friday, who lives in London, so we can just meet there.”

“Ok. I gotta go now, but we’ll talk about the time later ok?”

“Yeah sure!” She walked me to the door, and hugged me as we said goodbye.

I sat in the car.

“YES!” It’ll be our second date. I was way too excited about it, but it felt kind of nice. It’s been a long time since I was with a girl like her. Making me chase her, that was something rare nowadays. I drove home to see all the others getting in the car.

“Hey Casanova, just in time! We’re heading to Nando’s. Wanna join?” Lou asked.

“Yeah sure!” I got out of my car and got in the big van to see all their cheeky smiles.

“So…how was your day with your girlfriend?”

“Shut up Louis!” I hit him slightly and smiled at that little word. Girlfriend
