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 ;)


3. Girls' Night

“Wait… Those guys from that band? One Direction, is it?” Sissy asked. I could hear in her voice that she was a little skeptic after I told them I met two of my biggest crushes.  

“Yes. I swear, they walked into the shop this afternoon, and we spent hours talking.”

“I believe you.”- Violet said unexpectedly. I was surprised, and so was Sissy. I didn't think any of them will believe me this easily.  

“I mean, why would you lie, we’re not fans, so it doesn't make sense. And just look at yourself! Please stop jumping and screaming!” she laughed as I hugged her. I was so happy, and I saw Sissy was convinced too.  

“OK, I’m gonna let you talk about it until we reach your house. Then please no more One Direction, ok?” I smiled and began telling them my story from the very first second they walked into the store.

I couldn't stop smiling and it made them smile too. They were true best friends, happy for my happiness, even if they had to listen to me speaking about something they don’t like. And I used every single minute to talk about my unbelievably lucky day. When we got home, I shut my mouth as they asked, but I couldn't do anything about the fangirling.  

We ordered some pizza and took a few photos. Then we put on our PJ’s, sat in front of the TV and started watching the Grown Ups. About half an hour later I brought up the topic of boys.

“So Violet, is everything ok between you and Dan?”

“Yeah, he’s absolutely perfect. Tomorrow we’re going to go to the cinema.”

“Aww…and what are you going to watch?”

“I don’t know, we’ll see there. But what about you, guys? I know that you’re both younger than me, but it’s just one year. You’re both 16. You should be dating!”

“Yes, Sissy, why don’t you go out with Chris?”

“Oh, please! Don’t start it again.”

“But he’s so cute, he always tries to impress you!”

“But…I just don’t like him that way. Then what about you Jenny? “

“About me? There’s nothing…”

“Oh, come on! I think Dan’s friend is kind of interested in you. Maybe we should do a double date!”

“Oh no,no,no! No way!!”

“Then what? You’re just gonna wait for one of your celebrity crushes to appear with a bunch of roses in front of your window?” I started to laugh.  

“That’s quite impossible, cause my room is upstairs.”

“I’m serious Jenny!”

“I know…But I just..I haven’t met that guy yet.”

“What guy?”

“THAT guy. You know… But whatever we totally miss the film” I pretended to be interested in the movie, but the truth is that Violet’s words were stuck in my mind.

She was absolutely right, but I just couldn't imagine myself with that guy she was talking about. I made a fairy tale in my head and I was happy with it…Or something like that.  Luckily, I could avoid that topic for the rest of the night. We had a great time, as usual. About 4 am we finally fell asleep, but about 2 pm I was woken up by Violet, rushing to pack her stuff cause she was worried about not being able to get ready until their date.

“Where’s my phone?” Sissy and I were still sleeping, or trying to sleep.

“Violet, please…you’re in time. Just go back to sleep.” I didn't want to get up. I've always been grumpy in the mornings mainly if I was woken up.  

“Sorry, girls, but I have to go. Sissy, you’re coming with me, or you’re gonna go home on your own?”

We all knew that Sissy hated buses, and hated travelling on her own. She let out a big sigh and got up.

“I’m coming with you.”

They got ready within 10 minutes. I barely could see, I was so tired. We went downstairs, said goodbye and they left. I went to the kitchen to make my coffee. When I went back to my room, I searched for my phone and found a message.  

“Hey! I was wondering…do you have twitter? We should chat sometimes :) Harry xx”  

“Oh My…Sweet Baby Jesus up in the sky!”  I said and started shouting.  

“Jenny? Is everything OK?” my mom asked.

“Of course, Mom!”

“Lunch in ten minutes!”


I looked at the message again. This is impossible, I can’t believe it. What should I do now? Answer it? And what should I write? I walked up and down in my room and ended up sending him my twitter name and something like “definitely” and loads of smiley faces. I dressed up and went to the kitchen.

“How was the night with the girls?”

“It was good. What’s for lunch?”

“Pasta. Laura and I will go to your aunts, and dad is working until 10 pm. Do you want to come with us?”

“Umm…I don’t think so. I have to study and practice the dances. And I’m also very tired.”

“OK. We’ll go as soon as Laura wakes up. We’ll hurry back.”


I finished my lunch alone. Mom went to pack some stuff for my aunt and then left with my sister. I wrote my homework, practiced the dances for hours and when I was totally exhausted I went online to check my twitter. I could have jumped put of my own skin when I remembered I gave Harry my user name. Did he follow me?  It finally loaded. I was disappointed, there weren't any requests today. Whatever, he must be very busy. Due to the lack of sleep I had, I went to have a hot bath and then eventually fell asleep during a movie. When I wake up I had dinner, and watched my favorite TV program. I was still pumped up with the twitter thing, but I convinced myself to stay calm, cause probably Harry won’t follow me, not today. I sat down in front of my laptop and because of twitter was still open, I hit the refresh button. I jumped off my chair when I saw a notification: 1 new follower request. I started to scream, it was Harry! I wanted to write something, but what? I had so much to say. I sat like that for about 10 minutes totally lost in my thoughts when my eyes went back to the screen. One new message, not tweet, DM….
