2. You Need a Girl, Pronto

Harry's Point of View

     "Harreh! You need to get up! The plane's going to leave! WE'RE GOING TO BE LATE!" Louis shouted in my ear. 5:30 a.m. is not my favorite time of day to get up to get on a plane to fly to San Antonio.

     "All right, Lou, I'm getting up. I'll be ready in a minute," I grunted at him. He skipped out of the room as I rolled out of bed and put some clothes on. I was ready to go in a few minutes and the lads and I headed out the door. Before we even got in the car, Niall began complaining about being hungry.

     "No, really. I'm starving. You've got to believe me. Please, can we get some breakfast on the way? I'm dying. I'll never perform again. I'll starve, right here in this car," he began dramatically, pretending to grow woozy.

     "You can get food after we get to the airport Niall. If we stop now we'll miss our flight," Liam cut in. "Alrighty then, Papa Payne," Zayn teazed him. They began to bicker, and just as it got loud, Louis screamed "HARRY! YOU CAN'T SLEEP IN THE CAR! IT'S NOT ALLOWED! KEVIN SAYS SO!" I was immediately awake and looking at Louis. "Lou, I'm not in the mood right now, okay?" I said quietly.

     "Ohhh, I get why Harry's been so sad lately. He's lonely," Zayn diagnosed, although I didn't believe he was right. "Well, Hazza, if that's the case, then we'll have to find you a girlfriend," Liam put in. "Alright then, Harry, if you wanted to replace me that badly, why didn't you just come out and say it?" Louis fake sobbed into Niall's shoulder. Niall stroked his hair. "There there, Louis. It's going to be okay." "No! No it isn't! Harry's replacing me! I always knew this day would come. What did I do wrong, Hazza? What was it? You can tell me!" I rolled my eyes at Louis. Gosh, I love him to death, but...

     "It's because Evelyn just broke up with him," Niall said, with a hint of guilt in his voice. He had good reason to feel guilty. I told him not to tell the boys that. "What?" They all looked at me, with shocked looks on their faces. "But you and Evelyn were so good together. Why would she break up with you?" Louis said, serious at last. "I don't know, I guess...she just wasn't feeling it any more." I hung my head and felt the tears well up again.

     The lads patted me on the back. "So that's why you've been so depressed lately," Zayn said quietly. "But, Harry, why didn't you tell us? How come you told Niall, but not us?"

     "I just...he..." I sighed. "I was coming home late after a date with her, and Niall was up. It was around midnight." "Niall!" Liam interrupted me. "What were you doing up at midnight?" Niall blushed. "What do you think I was doing?" he questioned with a cheeky grin. A collective "Ohhhhhhh," came from the other lads. We all knew: he was getting a midnight snack.

     "Anyway, he started asking all these questions, and then I just...broke down. After that, I couldn't keep a secret, so I told him." I finished. "But Harry, how did it happen? I mean, how did know." Louis asked. "She just told me she didn't love me anymore and that it was over, and then she walked out,"  I said, and my voice cracked. They could tell I didn't like this, and so they quickly changed the subject.


     We finally got to the airport and quickly boarded the plane. I settled into my seat and began to tweet: Just got on the plane. Can't wait to see you San Antonio!

     Louis, looking over my shoulder, said "Wow, Curly. That's the best you could come up with? 'Can't wait too see you'? It's been done and done again. If that's all  you've got, then it's settled. You need a girl, pronto."

     I gave him a little smile, but he was serious. How was Louis going to find me a girlfriend that I'll actually love? I admit, I got pretty scared thinking of what Louis might come up with...
