For the love of my daughter {One Direction}

"I told you to stay out of my life Sam! You said you didn't want anything to do with her, so why do you suddenly care when she's happy!?"
"She's my daughter, I know what's best for her!"
"You know shit! You've never been here for her! You don't even know her! Just leave us alone!"
"I want her out of the media Alex!"
"She likes being with the boys!"
"I'm taking this to the police!"
"Yeah do that. I have the custody so you can do shit about it!"
I knew Sam had never liked One Direction, but taking them out of Caitlin's life now that she finally had them in real life wasn't fair, though I couldn't help but wonder if he was right. Was it really good for my daughter to be surrounded by the paparazzi whenever she was with one of the boys?
My name is Alexandria Griffin, but call me Alex, I'm an 18 year old model and mother for a 4 year old girl.


16. Dating?


“OMG! Did anyone see that video of @Harry_Styles making out with @AlexGriffin94 backstage at x-factor?!”

“Can’t believe @Harry_Styles made out with someone in public.”

“Who’s that @AlexGriffin94 girl anyway? And how does she know Harry?”

“@AlexGriffin94 you better stay away from Harry! We don’t need girls like you around him.”

“If @AlexGriffin94 expects to get a baby out of my husband I’m out of here. How can she even be a mum?”

“Ew! Is Harry seriously dating that Alex Griffin girl?”

I ran through twitter and saw it printed everywhere, the video and pictures of Harry and I making at backstage at The X-Factor.

“What are you looking at?”

I was sitting in the living room with my iPad, and had Caitlin playing on the floor with Harry.

“Just running through twitter.”

“Then why did your face change like that?”

“Because people are talking Harry, and soon I’ll have Sam calling me telling me shit about how I should act in public, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Nick was standing on the doorstep as soon as he sees it as well.

“Why do you worry about them and let them live your life?”

“Because they are part of my life.”

“But they shouldn’t live it for you. Do you regret kissing me?”

He stood up and stared at me with a very serious expression written over his face. Nothing I had ever seen like this on him. It was like he wanted to know if I wanted him or not. Asking me to date him.

“Of course I don’t. It’s just-”

“It’s just what Alex?! Are you ashamed of yourself? Of me? Of us?”

“I don’t even know what we are Harry!”

I got up from my seat on the sofa and went into my bedroom where I closed the door behind me. I was confused and annoyed. Were Harry and I dating, or were we not? I really wanted the answer, but I guess I wouldn’t just get it out of nowhere.

I locked my iPad and lay down on the bed, where I buried my head in the pillow. I hated life right now, and I just wanted to call my mum and ask her to pick me up and take me home to her for a couple of days. But I couldn’t go there either. Sam would be around, Nick would be around, and I was pretty sure that they were both pissed at me after everything that had been going on lately.

I heard a knock on the door after I had been lying there for a while.

“Can I come in?”

I heard Harry’s smoky voice on the other side of the door and I didn’t know if I wanted to answer or not. I was silent for a long time, and I heard another knock on the door.

“Alex? Babe please don’t ignore me.”

I got up from the bed and opened the door, revealing a very tired and confused look.

“Where’s Caitlin?”

“Don’t worry. Louis is playing around with her in the living room. Can I come in?”


“Don’t just act like you don’t care at all Alex. I know you care.”

“You don’t know anything Harry.”

“Stop it okay. Stop being so angry. Calm down.”

He moved closer to me and pulled some of my hair up behind my ear, and looked down at me.

I took a deep breath and then looked up at him before exhaling.

“Much better.”

He pecked my lips and I suddenly felt everything in my body loosen up. He had that magic touch on me, where he could make me do everything he wanted me to do. Our skin just had to be connected for a second before I was under his power.

As soon as his head moved away from mine I wrapped my arms around his neck so I wasn’t letting him get away from me. I placed my lips over his in the hunger of getting more of him. At first he was a bit shocked but soon he held me close to his chest and I could feel his heartbeat against mine. They were racing like wild horses over the field, escaping the world.

I pulled away from the kiss after a while and looked directly into Harry’s eyes. They had that shining sparkle I fell in love with shining through the emerald green colour.


We were lying in the bed that night. We had gone into Harry’s room, letting Caitlin sleep for herself again tonight. I was still confused, and I still needed my answer. I had been thinking about it all day, ever since Harry and I started being annoyed at each other earlier.



“You still haven’t given me an answer.”

“An answer for what?”

“What are we Harry?”

“What do you want us to be?”

 He was playing with my hair and sinking his voice to a whisper directly into my ear. I could feel his skin against mine as we lay beside each other. I was only wearing t-shirt and thong, while Harry was in his usual nothing.

“I want us to be serious.”

I turned around and stared into his eyes, when I found them in the dark. They had a tease written all over them, but I wasn’t up for any teasing. I was up for a serious answer.

“How serious?”

“Serious enough for you to understand that everybody comes second to my daughter. Serious enough for you to take a responsibility and help me take care of her when I need time off.”

“Caitlin loves being around all of us Alex, we take care of her. She’s a part of the 1D family and she will be from now on just as you will love.”

He supported my chin with his fingers as he placed his lips over mine leaving goosebumps all the way down my back.  

I cuddled up to him soon after we separated our lips and made sure that my head was resting safely on his chest. I left small kisses over his chest as his arms found their way around my body.

“You know I haven’t really slept this good since Sam and I were together.”

“What happened with you and Sam back then?”

“It’s a long story.”

“We have all night.”

“No we don’t. You have to get up tomorrow morning, and so do I, because I need to take Caitlin to reception even though I’m off from work until I start working for dolce.”

“You know you don’t have to get up. The boys and I can just take her.”

“It’s okay, I’m just gonna go with you tomorrow.”

“You sure?”

“Yes I’m sure.”

We lay in the silence for a while before I placed another kiss over Harry’s lips and then lay back down in the position I loved sleeping in.

“Goodnight Harry.”

“Goodnight sweetie.”

I hesitated for a moment with the next words. I didn’t want to freak him out, but he deserved to know the truth. I loved him, and I loved him with all of my heart.

“I love you.”

My voice was a weak whisper. A fragile shadow in the dark.

“I love you too babe.”

He kissed me again and soon after I dozed off in his arms, feeling safe and loved for real, for the first time in a very long time.
