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 ;)


14. Preparations


Harry’s POV

I walked back to the lads after she left.

“Paul will be here for us in a few minutes.” Liam informed me.


My thoughts flashed back to the playground. Her laughter echoed in my ears, her eyes when we talked… They weren't the same bored eyes when I talked about regular or just irrelevant things, as the other girls’ I've dated recently. She wanted to get to know me; me, not Harry Styles from One Direction. That feeling, that faith I felt around her was something rare, that I knew I should never let go of. I decided I’m gonna ask her out, as soon as we come back. It has to be perfect, but where should I take her?

“Harry? Earth calls Harry Edward Styles!” Liam called.


“Haha, I see you’re somewhere else in mind!”

“Yeah, sorry. What did you say?”

“Have you packed for tomorrow?”

“Yeah, sort of.”

“When does the plane take off?” Louis asked.

“10:30. Do I need to wake you guys up?” 

Liam knew we had problems with early mornings, we've overslept once or twice.

“Yeah, give us a call!”


“Anyway Haz, we all like her!”

“Huh?What?Oh…” I blushed a little, and smiled. That’s a good thing.

“Ok you need to pull your socks up before tomorrow!” they laughed.

“Sorry guys. You do? I’m glad to hear that!” 

“Yeah, she’s funny.” Niall said.

“And smart.” Zayn added.

“And she wasn't screaming all the way.” Liam laughed.

“And she’s pretty!” Louis finished.

“Hey, she’s mine!”  

We all laughed until our ride arrived.

“I’m gonna ask her out when we come back.”

“Where will you take her?”

“I don’t know yet. It has to be perfect though.”

They all looked at me, like… I don’t even know, oddly.


“Nothing. It’s just…it’s good to see there’s something serious after those flings.”

“Yeah, I want this to work!”

None of us spoke afterwards. I was thinking about the perfect scenes, until we finally got home. I quickly had a shower, then jumped into the bed. I was so tired, but before I fell asleep I checked my phone, and answered to Jenny’s message: “You’re welcome! Good Night!xx” The next day I woke up to my ringtone.

“Hello?” I didn't open my eyes, just answered it. It was Liam.

“Good morning. Time to wake up guys! Don’t sleep back!”

“I won’t. Thanks mate!”

I climbed out of my bed, and went to the kitchen, made 2 coffees and walked into Lou’s room.

“Time to get up!” I handed him one of the cups.

“Thanks. Do we have cereal?”

“Yeah, I think so. I’ll go check.”

I walked out of his room, got two bowls, spoons, the cereal, and some milk.

“Thank God!” Lou said as he came out, sat down and started to eat.

After breakfast we got dressed, grabbed our baggage and gave it to Paul, who put it into the car. 10 minutes later, we were on our way to the airport. Luckily the flight wasn't long, just an hour, but the day afterwards was exhausting. Actually all 3 days were busy, full scheduled. Interviews, signings and the shooting for our new music video. Once or twice a day, I had time to text or call Jenny, but usually we were so tired when we got back to the hotel that we fell asleep immediately. The weather was awful, so we had to cancel the shooting twice. Because of that we had to stay 2 more days. It was Wednesday, late at night when we got back to London. Tomorrow’s the big day. I knew she was going to be at the store, so I planned to visit her, and just split it out. I had the perfect idea of the perfect first date, I just didn't know if she was going to accept or refuse me. The lads kept soothing me, saying ‘Why would she refuse?’ but they couldn't calm me down. They came to our apartment asking if we wanted to go get some food. Of course we went to Nando’s. It felt nice being home, chilling out with the lads. We bought food, went back and watched some movies. It was quite late when we got in bed, but I was happy; at least I won’t have to wait a lot the next day. I was right; it was half past 12 when I woke up.  I made some toasts for me and Louis, ate it and went to have a shower and brush my teeth. An hour later, I was standing in front of my closet in just my boxers. I still had an hour so instead of dressing up, I laid down on the bed, and went online.

“I thought you’d already left.” Lou came into my room.

“No, I still have some time.”

“You nervous?”


“Shouldn't be! You’re just gonna go in there, talk with her, ask her out, she’ll say yes, later you’ll come home, we’ll go to rehearsal and even before you could notice, it’ll be the big day!”


“Now go, get dressed. Don’t be late!”

“I love you Boo Bear!” I shouted after him while he left.

I did what he said: got dressed, then started the car and left. On the way, I thought about at least 10 different pick up lines that might work, but I didn't like any of them after all. I stopped the car and walked to the door, where I took a big, deep breath and walked in. The little bell rang as I opened the door, and she looked up from her phone. Her bored, little tired eyes immediately lit up, and her perfect pink lips curved into a huge smile. I couldn't help but smile too. She stood up, as I walked towards her, opening my arms. 


“Hi!” she said, and broke away, her cheeks slightly red.

“So how was France?”

“We were really busy, and well that storm could have waited a few days before it came, but…I’m glad we have a few days off though. What have you been up to?” I asked as I sat down behind the counter, while she brought me a cup of tea.

“Nothing important. I had my best friend overslept on Saturday, and my sister didn't leave me alone until I told her every single thing that happened during the concert. I had to show her every picture and video, and she was really happy when I told her you liked the drawing.”

“I think you have quite a bad influence on her.” I laughed at her funny, fake offended face.


“I mean this whole fangilring thing… isn't she a little young for that?”

“Don’t worry, I won’t let her go to the wrong direction. She doesn't fangirl that much.- she winked. We didn't stop talking, until my phone rang; it was Louis. I ignored it, so he sent a message.

“Heading to the studio. Do you need a ride, or will you come on your own?”

Crap, is it that late already?

“Uh….I need to go. We have a rehearsal and I’m gonna be late.”

“Oh my God, I’m so sorry!”

“Why are you sorry? It’s not your fault. But anyway before I leave…”

I took a big breath, ‘come on Styles, just split it out’ I thought.

“I was wondering if you have plans for tomorrow night?” She blushed, and her smile widened.

“No, I’m free.”

“Great! Then would you like to…um…come to a…a date with me?”

She bit her lips, and blushed even more, now constantly smiling.

“Are you serious?”

“Of course I am. I…I really like you.”

“Yes, I’d love to!” I felt the urge to a relieved sigh, but I hold it back.

“I’ll pick you up tomorrow, OK?” She took a little paper and started to write down her address.

“Where will we go?”

“That’s a surprise.” I smiled.

“But…no, tell me!”

“Haha, no! It’s called a surprise for a reason.”

“But what should I wear?”

“Just wear something comfy. And don’t wear high-heels.”

“Argh…you are great at causing headache to a girl.” I laughed as she handed me the paper.

“Oh, and Harry. One more thing…I don’t kiss on a first date.” she smiled. I remembered saying that in an interview, so I just laughed.

“We’ll see.”

“No, we won’t!” I winked as I started to walk out.

“I’ll be there for you at 7 pm. Is that ok?”

“Yeah! Bye!”



Jenny’s POV

As soon as I saw his car disappear, I stood up and started jumping and screaming like an idiot. It was a good thing the shop was already closed. I couldn't believe it! Did Harry really ask me out? For a date? Oh My God!!! What the hell should I wear? I need Sissy’s and Violet’s help. I grabbed my phone and called my boss, while I locked the door and walked towards the bus station.


“Hi, it’s Jenny.”

“Oh, hi. How can I help you?”

“I…I can’t come to work tomorrow, I’m really sorry, but something just happened.”

“Oh, well it’s ok. I just call someone. I hope you’re ok, though.”

“Yes, I’m ok. Thank you.”

“And will you be able to work on Monday?”

“Yeah, it’s just for tomorrow.”

“Ok, then. Bye!”

“Thank you, bye!”

Great, now I just need to call my friends. First, Violet.


“Hi,hi,hi,hiiii!!!!” I sang.

“Jeez! What happened?”

“I have a date tomorrow, and I’m gonna need your help…”
