He's Mine

As I turn 17, the things I thought were the most important, seemed to prove me wrong. So now I sit on this plane with my best friend Haley, waiting for my arrival in NY, my big break. Little did I know I was going to be staying at the most expensive apartment in Manhattan. Yeah, you heard right. Let's just say, my uncle is more than just a rich fellow. Maybe I'll meet someone special. Maybe they'll be real. Maybe they'll be my next door neighbor for the summer? All I hope is that the day I meet him, my heart is ready to let him in.

5. That Italian Place

Eliza's POV.

I woke up in my room, draped in the light blue blankets Harry and I had shared the night before. But where was he? I sat up, rubbing my eyes, then got out of bed, changing from my shorts to some grey sweats. After that I went to freshen up in the bathroom, tying my bright red locks into a high ponytail.

After that, I walked into the kitchen, only to be greeted by the oh-so-familiar scent of freshly made pancakes and melted strawberry jam. I felt a smile creep onto my face as the sight of Harry Styles in my kitchen, making pancakes, came into view. "Morning." I said grabbing a plate and 5 pancakes. Yes, I was very hungry.

"Morning love." He greeted turning to flash me his adorable smile before turning back around. "Want orange juice?" I asked taking it from the fridge. "Sure." He chuckled, still fumbling with whatever he was making. I took two glass cups from the cabinet above his head, filling both with orange juice.

"You bastards better have left me some pancakes!" I heard Haley yell before I heard her heavy steps running towards the kitchen. "Oh calm your tits." I mumbled, mostly to myself, as I started to eat my pancakes. "Gosh these taste good!" I told him, stuffing a mouthful through my lips. "Why thank you." Harry laughed and came to sit next to me.

Turns out he had originally been frying bacon, but gave up and ate them himself. No fair. I pushed his glass of OJ to him and drank a sip of mine. "I have a signing to do today, so y'all might not have me till the end of the day. So I'll see you all at dinner tonight, right?" I smiled nodding as I put my plate into the dishwasher. "I'm gonna take a shower, will you be here when I get back?" He nodded, moving his hair out of his face, oh his curlsssss.

"Okay." I chuckled and went off to my bathroom. After I came out, I slipped on a strapless light blue floral dress and my plain white flats. I quickly dried my hair, trying to decided on my style today. Eh, curling it wouldn't hurt. I plugged in my curling iron, making nice natural curls in my hair. I smiled satisfied, then put a thin layer of peach lip gloss. I clipped my fringe up then skipped out the door to see Harry about to leave.

"What no hug?" I called to him, causing him to turn around startled. He smiled huge, opening his arms, inviting me into them. "Byeeeeeeeeeeeee!" I squealed running, then jumping into his arms. He wrapped his big strong arms around my small waist, making me feel safe in his arms. I don't know why, I just did. "Bye hun." He kissed my cheek and set me down, before walking out the door, to his apartment.

I closed the door turning around to see Haley smiling knowingly at me. "Does someone have a crush on the neighbor?" She teased pointing her finger at me. "Pfshhhhhh, I don't know what you're talking about Hales." Lie. Yes, indeed I was developing a little crush for the one and only Harold Edward Styles. Only a little one! "Oh come on Eliza, I've known you long enough." She told me, shaking her head laughing.

"Shut uppp." I whined and covered up my now red face. "Come on let's go for a manicure." I suggested. Anything to get away from this blasted subject. Without caring for her answer, I grabbed her arm, and my keys, taking her out and into a cab. "The best mall in New York please!" I told the driver. This was going to be amazing.

The minute we reached, I knew we had gotten into the right cab. "Thank you so much sir." I said paying for our trip then running out into the mall. The first thing I spotted was a boutique nail salon. I turned to see Haley already looking at me expectantly. "That one I suppose." She stated before we both made a dash for it.

We walked out, fingers drying, when I realized I was getting hungry. Yes, hungry. "Let's go to the food court." Haley said, reading my mind... Weird. "Okay." I agreed smiling and we started making our way to the food court. I had painted my nails a sparkly dark blue, to match my dress, with white designs. Hales had hers in a dark purple and a gold thick line going diagonally.

While we were waiting in line, something caught my eye. It was Jason. What the fuck was he doing in New York?! I decided not to alarm Haley, but that bastard was going to pay.
How? I do not know at the moment... But I will. The son of a bitch ruined my best friend's life. He wasn't about the get away with it.

"Hey babe, I'm going to go to the bathroom. Just get me a pepperoni pizza?" Haley nodded and I started making my way towards his table. "Excuse me, what are you doing here?" He looked up, his eyes widening in fear. "E-Eliza... Wh-what are you doing here?" He stuttered, oh he had it coming for him. "I asked you first." I folded my arms, my stare burning into him. "L-look, p-please don't hurt me." I chuckled darkly, maybe scaring him would do just fine. "If I ever spot you anywhere near either Haley or myself, you just remember that promise I made."

With that I walked back to Haley and acted as though nothing was wrong. I glanced back at the table, only to see it empty. Looks like he took my advice.

After we finished up, we decided on a little shopping. I bought sundresses, shirts, dress-shirts, skirts, shorts, colorful jeans, etc. And let me tell you, we ended up with 12 bags full of new clothes. EACH. "Do you think we're going to make Uncle Pete bankrupt?" Haley asked worriedly. I just laughed and shook my head no. "He's too bloody rich to go bankrupt." I answered winking before walking to the cab stop.

When we got home, I unlocked the door, flinging myself onto the couch. "Could you get me a glass of water?" I groaned placing the back of my hand on my forehead. "Sure babe. Are you okay?" She asked, walking into the kitchen. "I don't know." I mumbled before drifting off to sleep. God knows for how long...

"Eliza! Come on! You have to get ready... You only have like 2 hours now." That definitely woke me up. I didn't even care to answer Haley, I ran into my bedroom, closing the door and stripping down to nothing. After washing my hair with passion fruit shampoo, and my body with grape body scrub, I got out wrapping my body with my towel. Maybe I should brush my teeth...

I gave my teeth a quick cleaning before rushing out, starting to dry my hair. "Love can I come in?" Haley's voice came through the door. "Sure!" I said still trying to shake the water out of my damp hair. "Need help?" She was holding her hairdryer in her hands, smirking at me. "Yes please." I chuckled and took mine out too.

We both dried my hair, and I helped her too. "Okay now go change!" I told her and she was out the door within seconds. I shook my head, lips curling softly into a smile, as I closed the door and took out my dress from the closet. "Here goes nothing." I murmured sighing as I slipped it on and looked at myself in the mirror. Nice.

I slipped on my shoes and quickly went to where I had laid my curling iron this morning. I preferred my hair in loose curls than straight... So yeah. I quickly curled the ends of my red hair and clipped two bits at the front, to the back. I did some light make up before taking one last look at myself. I have to say, I'm pretty happy with my outcome.

Then I heard a knock on the door. "Haley?!" I heard her shout something I couldn't make out, but the front door clicked open so she probably went to go open it. I quickly put on my earrings and ring before opening my door and walking towards the living room.

I heard two masculine voices, something I wasn't too familiar with, and Haley's forever chirpy voice laughing at something the mystery voice had said. "Hi you guys." I smiled waving at the sandy haired boy, who sat comfortably on the single seat, obviously waiting for us to leave. Just for some extra info, yes, he was bloody hot.

"Hello beautiful." Harry greeted kissing my cheek. I giggled and kissed his cheek back. "Hi." I said smiling softly. I wasn't ready to fall... But he was making it very hard for me not to. It was like I was on 8 inch heels, and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to balance on those. Boy did Harry look good in a tux...

The boy with the fabulous hair came over, extending his hand politely to me. "Hello, I'm Josh." I smiled warmly, shaking his hand. "I'm Eliza." Soon we were all out the door, and into the car. "You look absolutely stunning." Harry whispered into my ear, making my cheeks flush instantly. "You look quite dapper yourself." I said, cheekily grinning slightly.

"So where are we going?" Haley asked impatiently. That was Haley for you. Josh smirked over to Harry and they gave each other a "look". What was I missing...? I look curiously between the two before Josh spoke up. "It's a surprise." Making both Haley and I huff in frustration. Damn boys.

After another 10 minutes, Harry took his tie off. "Woah woah, are we stripping down or something?" I asked half joking... I hope not. "No, I'm going to blindfold you." Harry explained chucking as he tied his tie around my head. He better not have messed up my hair. "Oh how I wish." I heard him snigger quietly, so I hit him. "Ow..." He mumbled, probably rubbing the spot I that I hit him at.

I heard Josh putting a blindfold on Haley, and she was complaining... A lot. "But my hair!" She whined. "Oh shut it you." I told her, even though I couldn't see her, she was probably about to try and hit me, so I quickly ducked, hearing her hand hit the seat behind me. "Damn you." She mumbled.

"Alright ladies, we're here." Harry stated taking my hand gently, and leading me out of the car. "Ready?" He whispered, his breath tickling my ear ever so slightly. "Yeah." I just wanted to see where we were already! He slowly untied the blindfold, letting it fall onto my bare shoulders. But that wasn't of my concerns at the moment. It was the brightly lit restaurant that now stood in front of me.

I was breathless. No, breathless is an understatement. It looked so grand, not the place a London girl would be found at... "Woah." I breathed, suddenly finding my lungs which had fallen out onto the ground somewhere. "Come on, let's go inside." Harry said, taking the tie off my shoulders, leaving a lingering feeling against my skin... "Okay." I mumbled and he took my hand, sending numerous sparks along my arm.

Haley and Josh were walking behind us, talking about some irrelevance that had probably happened in the past. "Reservation for 4 under Harry Styles." He stated to the waiter at the entrance. "Ah Mr Styles. Right this way." Hey smiled politely to me and grabbed 4 copies of the neatly placed menus that laid perfectly on the wooden stand he had stood behind moments ago.

He lead us over to an enclosed table at the back corner of the restaurant. Harry pulled out my seat, and waited patiently for me to seat myself, before he went over to the other side and sat opposite me. Haley sat beside me, and Josh opposite her. "This place is so fancy... I feel slightly out of place." Haley whispered to us, making Josh chuckle. They made eye contact for a while... longer than needed. I chuckled, elbowing Haley causing her to turn to me.

When she realized what I had done... She glared at me and turned back around. I laughed and turned my attention back to Harry, starting to talk about his X-factor experience. It felt so normal. I wasn't sitting with THE Harry Styles from One Direction. I was sitting with Harry. The Harry that came from Holmes Chapel, who was just a normal kid. I liked that.

As soon as our food came we dug into it, enjoying every delicious bite. "How did you find out about this place?" Haley asked, mainly Josh, with a mouthful of food. "Ew Hales, chew and swallow." I said, my food threatening to resurface. "Sorry." She murmured, which sounded more like "Sworsyhrruy".

"Simon brought us here the first night we ever came to NY. It was like a celebration dinner. I still remember it like it was yesterday." Harry told us, the ends of his perfectly shaped lips curling up, ever so slowly. "Well thank you for bringing us." I smiled. I had the slightest, okay not so small, urge to just kiss him then and there... But what would that say about me?

By the end of the night, we had had 2 main courses and a huge desert shared between the 4 of us. We were so full. When we got home from the restaurant, Haley invited the two to spend the night over. Not that I was complaining or anything... "Okay, we'll go have a shower and stuff, then be back in a few." Josh told Haley before they both waved and walked off in the direction of Harry's apartment.

The second the door clicked I looked at Haley and we both bolted for our rooms, wanting to be the one to open the door for the two gorgeous boys when they came back over. I washed all the makeup off my face and brushed my teeth. I changed out of my dress into my favorite yoga shorts and the Cambridge hoodie I had worn the night before.

I felt so refreshed... Good. I skipped out into the living room and sat by the door, taking out my phone and going through twitter.

"@Eliza_Kay_Smith: Spending the night with Harry again. Haha, no I refuse to tag which Harry :3."

As soon as I tapped post, I heard someone knock on the door, startling me at first, but eventually I got up and opened the door, revealing Harry and Josh, both in sweats and a shirt... Harry's was pretty tight, showing off his tones abs. Oh how I'd love to just touch-

"You have twitter?" Harry asked pointing to the phone in my hand. "Oh yeah!" I chuckled moving to the side so they could come in. "Just get comfy." That was before Harry took my phone, examined my twitter profile, then took his own phone out and started typing. Half-way through typing out something, he passed back my phone and went to go sit down. "Okay..." I mumbled confused but went to sit next to him anyway. Then I felt my phone vibrate.

"@Harry_Styles: Hanging out with the lovely @Eliza_Kay_Smith sorry love, but I couldn't help it. :3 just had to tag you."

I just laughed and hit his arm before turning on the Tv. Haley eventually came out and we spent the night watching reality Tv and at one point, we had made smores over the kitchen thingy. I ended up falling asleep on Harry's lap, and Haley on Josh. Yes, it was absolutely comfortable. But I'm afraid, I may be falling in love with my neighbor.
