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 ;)


30. The Deal

“It’s so weird seeing you practically everywhere!” Sissy exclaimed. I invited her over when Harry couldn’t come, so I wouldn’t be alone.

“It’s not that bad.”

“Not that bad? Listen:  

‘One Direction’s heartthrob, Harry Styles’ off the market! Recently the band member confirmed his relationship with the mysterious girl he’d been seen with for months.  It turned out the boys didn’t lie when they said they’d date a fan seeing Styles’ new girlfriend is one of them. We couldn’t get Mr. Styles to tell us more about his unexpected relationship, but we’re looking forward to see how things will work out for the couple.’  

or let’s see twitter:   

‘Why the hell would Harry date…’ oops sorry, let’s find something less upsetting.”


“Here’s one!  

‘Guys let’s be happy for Harry! At least he’s dating one of us.’ “  


“Or this one…”

“Sissy! I know, I can see them!”

“Sorry. You must be fed up with them.”

“Yeah, sort of.”

“And how is it for Harry?”

“Worse, of course. He gets bombarded with questions all the time. But he doesn’t say much.”

“Why not?”

“Maybe because I’m not a celebrity, the world shouldn’t know about me!”

“True. By the way did you know Violet has a twitter?”

“What? Since when?”

”I don’t know, but he mentioned you in her bio.”

“Are you serious? Let me see!” I leaned over Sissy’s shoulder to check what Violet wrote.  

‘Violet, 17, London, friend of Harry_Styles’ girlfriend, Jenny_A’  

“Ridiculous! Does everyone go crazy for some attention? Sissy, if you change I’ll kick your ass!”

“Thanks!” she laughed.

“ I won’t, don’t worry. Jeez it’s already noon? I have to go, I’m meeting Scott!”

“Okay, have fun!” Due to the lack of sleep from the girls’ night, I tiredly walked over to the couch where I eventually fell asleep. In my dream, I was standing in the middle of a field full of butterflies. Some of them landed on me, tickling the thin skin underneath themselves. They were everywhere; on my arm, my shoulder, my cheek, my nose…

“Darling! Wake up sleeping beauty, I missed you!” I slowly opened my eyes to see Harry kneeling beside me, his fingers roaming my body. So that’s where the butterflies came from!

“Hey!” I whispered.

“I’m guessing you had a fun time with Sissy, huh?”

“Yeah. Didn’t get much sleep. How was your day?”

“It was okay. When does your family get back?” “In two days, why?”

“Because we need to ask them if you can come home with me.”

“Home? You mean…”

“Holmes Chapel, yeah. If you want to come, of course.”

“Sure, wow. When?”

“In a week? I’ve got a few days off, so we could stay there? Mom didn’t like the fact that the media learned about you before she could meet you.”  

“Wow, it’s scary.”

“It’s going to be great, you’ll see!” He said as he gathered me in his arms.

“But what if they don’t like me?”

“That’s not an option! Come on, let’s go to my place, Eleanor’s also there.”  

“Hey guys!”  

“Yay, finally, here’s my rescuer! Louis wants to play with some idiot game and I’m terrible at it!” Eleanor said as we hugged.

“What game?” I giggled.

“Counter Strike. Join me Hazza?”  

“Yeah, if the girls don’t mind. You can talk or something, we wouldn’t want you to feel bad when you lose now, do we Lou?”

“Lose?!” I gasped.

“How do you know we’d lose?”

“Well, you’re girls.”


“Have you ever played with it?”

“Actually, I have! Come on, Eleanor, you and me vs. the boys!” Louis and Harry both made teasing noises like “oooh”, while Eleanor looked at me doubtfully.  

“I’m so in!” Louis exclaimed.

“But let’s make this interesting. The winner gets to make an outfit for the loser and they’ll have to go a whole day in that.”

“Deal!” I said.

“Wait!” Eleanor pulled me a little closer.

“Are you sure it’s a good idea? You know them, if we lose that will be super awkward! I’m a terrible player!”

“Don’t worry! I killed my cousins in this game, I’m trained.” I laughed.

“Besides, I’ll help you.”

“Helloo? Do we have a deal, then?”

“Yep, we’re in!” Louis rubbed his palms together in excitement as we all made our ways to the couch.

“Don’t worry, I won’t make it too awkward for you.” Harry chuckled.

“Oh I don’t worry, but you should, Styles!”

“Ooh, you’re really sure about yourself!” I winked at him as El and I sat down on the couch and the boys in front of it, on the floor.

“How many rounds boys?”


“Okay.” I turned to Eleanor.

“Listen, when the game starts, you can get equipments and guns. Go for the bigger ones. The game is over after the 3rd round. We are the CT team, and if we win at least 2 rounds, we won the game. Try to get in the buildings and aim for a window. That’s the best place to spy. And when you see them, shoot!” She nodded.


“Ready!” The game started. It was quite empty, because of the lack of players, but who cares? Eleanor and I quickly grabbed some weapons and headed towards the boys. I went inside a building and looked out through the window where I spotted Louis.

“El watch out!” But it was too late, Louis killed her, so I shot him.

“Oh damn! You just got lucky!” he complained.

“Seems like it’s just you and me, darling!”

“Yeah, but where the hell are you?” Harry grinned mischievously and then suddenly my health went down to 50%.

“What the hell? I can’t see you!” I crawled on the floor, away from the window and went on top of the roof.  

“Ha!” I shouted as I spotted him and began shooting.

“Die peasant!” I heard Louis’ laughter next to Harry, and Eleanor’s cheering just when I dropped dead on the roof.

“No! Shit!” I shouted.

“Sorry, it was hard to kill you, but I already know your outfit and trust me, I won’t give up on that.”

“Don’t be so happy, Styles! We still have two rounds! We’re going to fuc…”

“Don’t swear!” he interrupted.

“Sorry!” I giggled.

“But we’re still going to kick your asses!” In the second round, Eleanor threw a bomb in front of the boys, so we won.

“That was amazing! High-five!”  

“Come on Hazza! We need to win this!”

Louis pouted as the last round began. Eleanor and I both climbed up to 2 roofs in front of each other and waited for the boys. I saw Harry enter the building I was on, so I went to the staircase to wait for him. Meanwhile Eleanor began shooting Louis, and shouting when he didn’t die.

“Don’t shoot too much, try to aim for his head and shoot once!” She repeated that action twice and successfully killed him. Now we only had Harry. He knew I was waiting for him so I had to go down to him, where he almost killed me, but I was faster.

“Wohooo!” El and I jumped up screaming.

“What?! How could you let her kill you?!” Louis pouted.

“You let El kill you too!”

“I can’t loose against girls!”

“Fuck.” Harry mumbled.

“Don’t swear!” I mimicked him, then leaned on his shoulder.

“Don’t worry, I won’t make it too awkward for you!” I laughed.

“Now my dearest Eleanor, what do you think you, me and the boys go to the park tomorrow?” I winked.

“Only if we also grab a coffee at starbucks!”

“Of course! Oh, sweet victory!”  

“I know, right?”

“Keep it real, girls. It’s just a game.” Louis mumbled as he walked into the kitchen.

“Sore looser?”

“You have no idea!” El mouthed.

“Shall we go out shopping for tomorrow then?”

“Yes! Let’s leave them pout to themselves.”

Before I walked out after El, I went to Harry and kissed his cheek.

“Do you want me to come back afterwards?”

“Of course! In fact, you should sleep here. The park’s closer.”

“Okay, then I’ll grab some stuff from home. See you later, loser!” I giggled and ran out to El’s car. She drove us to a custom market, where a few girls recognised her and sweetly waved at her. They seemed to also recognise me, ‘cause they gave me angry glares.

“Just give them some time. It’s only been a few weeks.”

 “I know. It’s just weird. I don’t know what I can and can not do. I mean, should I answer the nice tweets or questions if there’s any on twitter or not? If I don’t answer they’ll think I’m rude but if I answer they can think I’m an attention seeker.”

“Well I answer them.”

“But they love you and you’ve been here for a while.”

“What does Harry think?”

“I didn’t ask him. I don’t want to load him with silly things.”

“You know it’s not silly. I think you should talk to him. But if you’re interested in my opinion, answer them and be nice! And patient! Yeah, those are the most important things.”

“Thanks. Oh my God, I’ll get this for Harry!” I grabbed a morph suit off the shelf and showed it to El. She started laughing and nodded.

“Tomorrow will be amazing. Now what should Lou wear?” We were roaming between the shelves for long minutes until Eleanor gasped and then burst out laughing. She was holding a pink tutu and a ridiculous white dotted shirt.  

“What do you think?”

“Oh, after this he’ll definitely be the sass queen.”

We went to the check out and paid for the articles.

“Do you think we could step by my house? I need to grab a few things.”

“Sure thing, babe.” In the car, I asked her to tell me about the time when she first met Louis’ family.

“So in total, it was great. When will you go?”

“Next week.”

“Don’t worry. I know it seems terrifying but trust me, it’ll be all good. I’ll wait for you in the car, okay?”

“Sure, thanks.” I ran up to my room and grabbed a few necessary things before we headed back.

“We’re back!” I shouted as we entered the house.

“Hey, love. What did you get?”

“You’ll see tomorrow.” Through the day, Eleanor and I worked out the perfect plan for the next day, starting with an early wake up.

“Sleepyhead! Wake up! We’re going to the pa-ark!” I sang.

“Hmm? What time is it?”

“8 am. Get up, here’s your outfit for today.”

“Shh, come back to sleep, babe!”

“Nope. We’ve gotta get going!” I whined.

“Don’t make me bring cold water!”

“Okay, jeez, I’m up!”  

“Go get something to eat and then dress up! We’re leaving soon.”

He groaned and made his way to the kitchen, where Lou was already munching on some cereal. 25 minutes later the boys were standing in the hall with annoyed looks, while El and I were holding our stomachs in laughter.

“Okay, I’m totally tweeting a picture of you two!” I snapped a photo and posted with the caption ‘Beauty and the Beast! That’s what you get for underestimating @EleanorJCalder and me!’  

“Come on guys! We’re off to Starbucks!”

They unwillingly got in the car that was driven by El. We made them order our drinks while we laughed at the back, watching the shocked expressions.

“Are you happy now? Can we go home?” They whined handing us our drinks.

“No way! We’re going to spend a lovely time in the park. There’s food in the car.” I linked my arm with Harry’s as we began walking to the park while El and Lou grabbed the food, “Come on, enjoy this beautiful, sunny day!”

“Clearly you really do enjoy this situation.”

“Are you mad?”

“No. You won and it was our idea to make this deal, so I guess I’ll just have to take the consequences. I have to admit, it’s pretty funny.”

The four of us found a place where we sat down and relaxed. The passing people looked absolutely terrified by Harry’s  morph suit, but they couldn’t help cracking up as they spotted Lou. He snapped a picture of El and I laughing and tweeted with the caption: ‘Do not ever let this two plan something together… Lovely on the outside, evil on the inside’

“Heads up boys! We brought cookies!”

I leaned back into Harry’s arms and watched the lovebirds in front of us. They were so cute, so much love in their eyes… I felt Harry’s grip tighten around me as he whispered into my ears.

“I love you.”

“I love you, too.” I kissed him, trying my best to ignore the curious fans not far away from us.

“PDA much?” Louis chuckled.

“Look who’s talking Mr. let-me-feed-my-girlfriend-with-cookies!” I replied. A little later, we got bored, so we decided to go eat some ice cream. The boys wanted to sit inside, but of course, El and I took our seats outside, so everyone could see them.

As we were eating our ice creams a small group of fans spotted us and came over.

“Sorry, but could you sign this poster and can we take a picture, please?” One of them asked shyly. Harry looked at me to see if I was okay with it, but I just nodded smiling.

“I’ll hold your ice cream.” The boys stood up for the picture and signed the girls’ posters.

“Thank you so much!” They seemed to be nice except one of them who was practically judging me with her eyes.

“Thanks boys!” She started.

“Oh and by the way, I love you Eleanor!”

With that and a high-minded glare at me, she left leaving the other 2 girls behind. I bent my head down, feeling the awkwardness in the air, until I heard Louis mumble ‘rude’. Harry reached for my hand and squeezed it.  

“I actually like you, Jenny.” One of the girls’ said shyly.

“I mean you tweeted us that picture today. It was hilarious!”

“I’m glad you liked it.” I giggled.

“Will you keep us updated?” The other one asked excitedly.  

“Well…” I looked at Harry questioningly.

“If I can, I will.” They smiled and walked away waving. I felt Harry’s eyes on me as I smiled happily to myself. I turned my head towards him as he let out a frustrated sigh.

“What’s wrong?”

“I can already see tons of awkward pictures fill up the social networks. But if that’s the price of that smile on your face…oh well, I’ll survive!” I leaned over after a giggle and kissed him.

“I love you so much.” He pulled me back with a smile and only broke away when Eleanor’s ‘aww’ interrupted us.

“Seriously…too much cuteness.” Louis said.

“Oh shut up!” We all finished our ice creams and walked back to the car. I began swinging our connected arms back and forth between us, making Harry giggle.

“You’re so cute. I can’t wait to introduce you to my mom.”

“Me neither.” I whispered as I gazed into his eyes and leaned my head on his shoulder.
