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 ;)


25. One Month

“Okay what do we watch?” Harry and I were standing at the entrance of the cinema, trying to decide what to watch on our one-month anniversary.  

“Whatever you want.”

“No, we decide together! Uhm…any ideas?”

“Men in black 3?”

“But you just attended the premier like a week ago?” 

“Yeah but it only came to the cinemas today. And I didn’t see it with you.” he smiled.

“Well, since there’s nothing better… Men in black 3 it is!” Harry bought our tickets and some popcorn, then we took our seats in the dark, crowded room.  

“You know, you’ll probably be in magazines again.”


“Second row on the left.” He checked the girls that were suspiciously whispering and looking over at us, took off his beanie and put it on my head.

“What are you doing?” I chuckled.

“Well I pretty much get recognized with or without it so…and anyways, it looks 10 times better on you.” He kissed my nose making me giggle.

“Well thank you, but if you tuck my hair behind my ear, my face will be pretty much visible with or without a beanie silly.” I pulled my hair forward and made myself comfy as the film started. Harry intertwined our fingers and paid more attention to me, than to the film.

“Hey do you see that big screen in front of us? Yeah, well you can see the movie on it, not me.”

“Oh really?”


“Well thanks for enlightening me, but Will Smith is really not my type. I’m more into David Hasselhoff.” I caught myself burst out laughing and quickly shut my mouth with my hands earning angry looks from everywhere. Harry giggled to himself with his head down, so I elbowed him.

“Ouch.” he whispered.

“You deserved it!” I thought after that he’d leave me alone, but I was wrong. We kept on talking in low whispers through the entire movie and only stopped when the cast at the end of the film showed up. We quickly walked out before the lights turned on or before we got attacked by angry people complaining. We decided to go somewhere away from people for a nice walk. It was already very dark and the weather was rather chill, so Harry put one arm around my waist and pulled me close to him.

“I’m never going to the cinema with you again.”  

“Why?” he whined, laughing.

“I don’t even know what happened in the film! And about 8 people killed me with their eyes.” I giggled.

“By the way, your beanie…” I reached for it to take off but he stopped me.

“I don’t want you to get cold. Leave it!”


“Hey um, next week on Sunday, we’re doing a little gathering. Barbecue and all in the garden and well Louis brings Eleanor and Danielle’s also coming maybe even Perrie shows up, so I thought you should come. If you want of course.”

“Wow, uhm…you want to throw me into a shark aquarium?”

“What?” he questioned with his eyebrows raised.

“Well yeah, meet those perfect girls all at the same time, I’ll feel like a potato.” He let out a cute laugh and shook his head.

“A potato? You keep reminding me I’m actually dating a fan.” he laughed.

“I’m serious! I mean Danielle is a dancer, and Eleanor is a gorgeous model who’s not a real model but she’s just perfect so she could be and then there’s Perrie who’s a singer and I’ll be like ‘Hi I’m Jenny and I have a blog which I’m about to delete by the way and yeah that’s it’. Stop laughing at me!” I whined and hit him when he didn’t stop laughing.

“Sorry, but have anyone ever told you to breathe while you’re ranting? You just speak and speak so fast I’m not even sure how can you still be alive! But back to the topic…they are all very nice girls who won’t judge you just because you’re a fan. Second, you are just as gorgeous as they are. I’m going to tell you a secret, I think you’re even more gorgeous!” he whispered into my ear, making me blush. I opened my mouth to protest but he put a finger on my lips.

“Ah-ah, I’m not done yet.” He stopped and turned to face me.

“I’d like you to come, so I could show off my beautiful- stop rolling your eyes, you are- girlfriend who’s not a singer, but she’s incredibly smart- we can boast with your exam results that you’ll receive the next week, right? Who may not be a professional dancer as Danielle, but dances because she loves it and that’s a good thing, right? Doing what you love. And who may not works as a floor model at Hollister or goes to the Uni of Manchester like Eleanor, ‘cause she’s younger.” I opened my mouth again to speak, but he hushed me.

“Don’t even start. Just because I said I was interested in older women, it doesn’t mean I can’t change my mind. And you, you did change my mind. Now, is there any other insecurity of yours that I need to rant about to make you come?” I smiled and shook my head.

“Good.” he whispered and kissed me.

“Why did you say you’re about to delete your blog?” he asked as we continued walking.

“Well, I already stopped running it, because, well it’s weird. You know, blogging about my boyfriend and his band. I’m torn between keeping and deleting it ‘cause- it may sound silly, but- that’s my life. Or was. So many memories, and I just can’t click on the delete button. I think I’ll just use a password so no one else can see it but me. I’m being ridiculous seriously don’t let me open my mouth!” He just laughed and we slowly started walking back to his car.

Our date ended close to midnight, on the stairs in front of my front door. I put his beanie perfectly back on his head and kissed his cheek before I stared into his mesmerizing eyes and thanked him the night. He pulled me closer by my waist and pressed his warm lips against mines for long seconds. Our goodnights were said while we rested our foreheads against each other’s looking deeply into the other’s eyes. I waved at him while he drove away and sneaked back to my bedroom where I lied wide-awake, unable to find my way to dreamland. Many hours later, I eventually found stroking the sleeping cat’s fur calming enough to make me fall asleep. The next day I called Sissy to spend some days with me. I needed her to calm me down. I was afraid of the exam results that turned out to be great. We received them on Monday, and both Sissy and I got ‘A’s. After school, I spent hours on the phone telling every living person including Harry and my parents the good news. Then I went to attend my very first dance lesson in a long time. I missed everyone there so much, but I was terribly lost. Moreover, because of the sudden workout, I had muscle strains all week. Sarah gave me extra lessons so I could attend the performance. I was happy with them, they took my mind off Sunday. I couldn’t help being scared, but I didn’t admit it to Harry. I didn’t want him to think I was just making up excuses. I really wanted to go and get to know everyone, but who was I next to those girls? Sissy tried to help me, but she just discovered another thing. I didn’t want Danielle to know about me dancing. Not like I was lame, of course not even close to her abilities, but I was okay with that part. I was more afraid of what she’d think about my shape. I didn’t have the typical dancer look. I was a lot curvier in every single place: my legs, my chest, my thighs…  

When Sunday came, Harry picked me up at 2 in the afternoon. Although the others didn’t arrive until 4, I wanted to spend some time with him and help him get things ready. I wore a pair of denim shorts, a light pink loose blouse with a brown, thin belt at the waist and had my hair in a messy side braid. I put on the usual minimum makeup and got in Harry’s car. We greeted each other with a kiss, then drove off. Entering his place, Niall greeted me.

“Jenny! How’s my favourite JB fan?” I giggled and hugged him.

“I’m good Niall. How are you?”

“Great! I heard you got great grades, congratulations!”

“Thank you! So, what can I help with?”

“Let’s get the plates out!” Niall handed me 8 plates while Harry took out the glasses.

“We need one more, Niall. You gave me 8, we’re going to be 9.”

“Oh no, Perrie couldn’t make it. They have a photo shoot or something.” I sighed in relief, trying not to get Niall’s attention, but I didn’t realize Harry entered the kitchen.

“Are you nervous?”


“Don’t be, I already told you, everything’s going to be fine. Need another speech?”

“No.” I giggled, but bent down my head. Harry placed the plates behind me on the counter and lifted my chin up.

“Are you sure? Because I already know the…..uh…first word?” His adorableness made me chuckle, painting a smile on his face.

“There’s that smile! Now, let’s get it over with, they will be here in an hour!”

Since the boys planned to make the food, we didn’t have much to do. Soon Zayn also arrived, so we only had to wait for Louis, Liam and their girlfriends. They arrived, when Niall was in the middle of telling Harry and I some funny thing that happened to Zayn and him the other day, Harry was standing behind me with his arms around my waist while I was laughing.

“Well look at this!” Louis started.

“We’re not even here and the party already began!” Harry felt me stiffen in his arms, so he took my hand and led me over to the girls.

“Eleanor, Danielle, this is my girlfriend, Jenny.”

“Hey!” I said smiling, but my voice was barely above a whisper.

However, I eased up a little when they both hugged me smiling, telling me they had already heard about me. We started a nice conversation, while Zayn and Niall began making the food. I refused to let go of Harry’s hand for at least 20 minutes, as we went through the basic things. When I was comfortable enough with them, the boys went to join Niall and Zayn, leaving us girls alone to talk, but before Harry left, he kissed my cheek and squeezed my hand. I looked after him, then back to the girls. They were both smiling, but it wasn’t just a simple smile, it was an excited smile.

“You two are so cute! How long have you been together?” Eleanor asked.

“Last week was a month.”  

“Aww. Did you notice how he changes around you?” Danielle asked.

“What do you mean?”

“Look at him now…” I looked over and saw the boys acting like 5 year-olds and laughing like they were drunk, then looked back at Danielle.

“That’s how he acts around the boys. Now, watch how he acts around you.” she said and turned to Harry.

“Hey Haz, could you bring us some drinks please?” He nodded and walked into the kitchen to bring us some juice and some alcohol. He walked over and raised the bottles.

“Which one?” We all agreed on the juice, and watched as Harry poured some into our glasses. When he got to me, he kissed my temple and stroked my arm before walking away.  

“See? He’s so in love with you! Did you say it already?”

“No. Not yet. Isn’t that too early?”

“Say it when you feel it!”

“When did you say it?”

“Liam said it first on a date somewhere between the second and third months.”

“I’m going to be honest, I don’t know when we said it first. It was so simple, I think we just started saying at a point.”

I laughed at Eleanor and took a sip from my drink. We kept on talking about simple things, then about the boys until the meal was ready. I was at the edge of tears, I was laughing so hard at some silly thing Louis did, when the boys came to join us at the table. They noticed that we suddenly stopped talking and kept on laughing and exchanged suspicious looks.  

“Did you have a good time?” Louis asked, kissing Eleanor as he sit down next to her.

“Oh yes we did, boo bear.” We burst out laughing again remembering the story.

“What were you talking about?”

“Oh nothiiing…”

We had a lovely meal, with music in the background. As we were talking I caught the girls looking at Harry and me and smiling, making me blush. By the end of the night Danielle, Eleanor and I agreed to meet up sometimes during the next week at Starbucks. I really enjoyed being with them all, acting like we’d been friends for a long time. Around 9, I said goodbye and exchanged numbers with the girls before got in Harry’s car and left.

“Now what did I say? It was good, wasn’t it?” he smiled.

“Yeah, it was really good. They are so nice, thanks for inviting me.”

“Of course. I’m glad you enjoyed. What were you talking about?”

“Oh I can’t tell you that. Top secret girlfriend things.” I winked.



“Well then I’ll just have to talk about some top secret boyfriend thing with the lads. Oh wait, already did.” He smirked.

“What? What did you talk about?”

“Oh that’s top secret!”  

“You know, sometimes you’re unbearable!”  

“So what are you doing next week?”

“Dancing every day for hours, preparing for the prom, meeting Eleanor and Danielle and I don’t know the rest. You?”

“Photo shoot, interview, studio, preparing a surprise for you, doing a twitcam…”

“Hold on! What? A surprise for me?”

“Maybe.” he smiled.

“What is it?”

“I don’t know.”

“Oh come on! Tell meeeeee!” I whined.

“If I told you it wouldn’t be a surprise!” he laughed.

“You’re evil! And when will you tell me then?”

“In one and a half weeks.”

“One and a half…is it related to the prom?”

“Maybe.” He smirked. “Ow now I won’t be able to sleep!”

“Well maybe you shouldn’t be so curious! Here we are!” He said as he stopped the car in front of my house.

“Thank you!” I leaned over and kissed him.

“I’ll call you later okay?”

“Sure! Bye!” I got out and watched him drive away.  


Harry’s POV   

A little later that night, when I ended my conversation on phone with Jenny, Danielle and Eleanor attacked me.

“She’s so cute Harry! When are you planning on saying the magical 3 words?”


“Oh come on! We saw how you look at her, like she was the most precious and fragile thing on Earth!”

“He’s working on a…” Niall started but I quickly interrupted him.”

“Shh! That’s a surprise!”

“Tell us!”  

“No!” “Please!” Danielle whined.

“Erm Harry?” Liam called, not looking up from the laptop’s screen.

“You’ve been caught again. In the cinema and in front of the house.” I sighed not wanting to see the pictures.

“Can you see her face?”

“Not in these, but the fans went crazy! I don’t know how long you’ll be able to say the “good friends” thing.” Fabulous…
