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.

6. Dinner date with Harry Styles

 

I was standing in front of the mirror trying to figure out what I wanted to look like on my date with Harry. I had just gotten home from my mum's where I had dropped off Caitlin. My mum was so excited for me to go out on a date. She knew how busy I was with everything so I never really got to get out and be young, but tonight I did. 

I took my phone and called Emily and sat down on my bed. 

"Speaking." 

I heard her voice. She seemed annoyed. 

"Hey Em. Uhm I'm not home tonight when you get here and I probably won't be back till the morning." 

"Why? Where are you going?"

"Out..." 

"On a Sunday?" 

"Yeah I have a date with Harry." 

I don't know what happened but soon she was back to fangirling and screaming really loud. 

"Yeah good. My mum is taking Caitlin for the night and I'll pick her up after my meeting and training with Zoe tomorrow." 

"Sure!!! Omg have fun!" 

"I'll try my very best." 

We said our goodbyes and hung up on each other. 

I went out into the shower and made sure that all of my hair was washed perfectly and got the conditioner it needed. 

As soon as I had finished my shower I put my hair up in the towel and wrapped it around my head. I looked like a panda stepping out of the hot shower. I laughed a bit over myself as I went into my bedroom after drying myself. I was wrapped in the towel as I started the music and let it fill the entire house. I had 1.5 hour to get ready before I would meet Harry at Hyde park where we would go for a walk before we were going out for dinner. 

I went back out into the bathroom and made sure that all of the old make-up was away from my face. It left red marks on my skin, but they would soon be gone or covered by some new make-up. Honestly I didn't wear much make-up but whenever I did I made sure that it was very natural looking. 

I blow dried my hair as soon as I had taken the make-up off and gotten myself into some underwear. My hair was very wavy but I didn't mind at all. It looked really beautiful. 

I was singing at the top of my lungs as What Makes You Beautiful was filling the room. 

When I had finished first round in the bathroom I went into the bedroom and started figuring out what to wear. It had to be something simple yet fancy. I wanted it to be perfect but not too classy. 

I found a white pair of Dolce&Gabbana girly destroyed washed jeans that I had gotten at a photo shoot once. They fitted me perfectly and made my bum look really sexy. Soon I found the Dolce&Gabbana crochet slim fit cropped top in black that I had gotten at the same shoot. It was a lovely set of clothes if I matched them with my favourite heels that I could walk miles in without having pains in my feet. I found a long black blazer as well that I hang over a chair to wear it when I had finished my make-up and hair. I was very a light make-up that marked my eyes a little bit and made sure I didn't look too dolly. I finished my lips by painting them with the neutral lip gloss. 

When it came to my hair I only straightened it and let it hang around my shoulders. To finish it all perfectly up I added a silver necklace with the letter C and a few thin silver bracelets to my left wrist. 

There it was all ready. I looked beautiful I couldn't help but smile to myself as I took a picture in the mirror inside of my messy bedroom. 

"@AlexGriffin94: ready to head out for the night! *insert picture here*" 

I didn't think about the new amount of directioners that had followed me so of course I was spammed with questions asking me if I was going out with Harry. I ignored their tweets, but I knew they wanted my attention an answers to their questions. 

I went out in the kitchen to take a glass of water before I headed out for my date. 

I walked the 1 mile trip down to Hyde Park from my flat. I enjoyed walking around and just being able to move myself around instead of driving the car. 

I was walking down the street to the park with music in my ears and only wearing the blazer as my jacket. It was the middle of September and about 20 degrees Celsius outside so the whether wasn't a problem yet at all. 

I smiled bright as I saw Harry by the entrance of the park and walked a bit faster the rest of the way to get there. 

"Hi." 

"Hey beautiful." 

We hugged each other and Harry of course placed a soft and sweet kiss over my cheek. He was such a sweetheart. What surprised me this time was that I actually wasn't scared to meet him, I wasn't even nervous because he was Harry. I was just really looking forward to hanging out with him and be closer to this amazing person. 

We walked beside each other through the park with a little distance between us. Harry's hands were deeply buried in his trouser pockets and we made sure we weren't looking too much on each other. This was what I hated about dating celebrities. I couldn't just be alone with them, but luckily this time I actually could. There was no sight of the paparazzi or fans actually. We walked around the park for about 1.5 hour just talking about the jobs, Caitlin, the band, our families and so on. 

"So this ex-boyfriend of yours how does that all work out?" 

"I have sole custody and he has no visit rights, but the thing is that he's really good friends with my brother, so he sees her anyway." 

"Sounds tough..." 

"It is... It's really hard raising her, but I have to do it." 

"How old is she?" 

"4..." 

"So you were 14?" 

"I was, but it was a drunken mistake that I got a perfect gift out of." 

I smiled to the ground by the thought of the 14 year old version of me after I had told my mum and my stomach has started to grow. I thought about the pictures we had taken and the many 'family' moment we had had. 

We changed the subject to us and to the work we do. After we finished the walked we were picked up by one of Harry's drivers that took us to a restaurant close to Oxford Street. 

"Oh nice." 

We sat in the car on the way. 

"Must be lovely your own driver when you're too lazy driving on your own." 

I smirked at him and he smiled back just shaking his head.

We pulled up in front of the restaurant and Harry got my hand as he opened the door for me to get out of the car. The restaurant itself wasn’t really anything special, but I loved it anyway. It was casual but a little nicer than a place I would usually take Caitlin and my family.

We were let to a table in the back of the restaurant, making sure that we weren’t spotted too easily. Neither of us was in the mood for a paparazzi attack, we just wanted to have a nice and fun dinner.

The waiter purred white win in our glasses and soon placed some nice food in front of us. Harry had ordered special food that wouldn’t ruin my diet too much, but there was still way too much food for me to actually eat. It was a good thing that I was going to work out tomorrow.

Harry was sending me flirty looks through the whole dinner and we talked and laughed a lot. It was really nice getting closer to him and just learning about his band mates from him, and not from everything we were told over the news. They all sounded like really lovely lads and I couldn’t wait to meet them someday.

“Louis is the best. He’s always there when I need a laugh.”

“He sounds like a lovely guy.”

“He is, you should come meet them someday.”

“Really? I’d love to.”

We smiled at each other and I stared dreamy into his eyes and didn’t really get what he was saying. He was just really adorable, but yet I was still seeing that guy from the shoot and the boy that I had adored for my entire life.

“Alex?”

“Sorry.”

He snapped me back to reality after a while, I had been dreaming far too long.

“What were you thinking?”

He smiled and it was like he was blinking in slow motion making his eyes shine even brighter.

“Nothing I was just a living in my dream world for a second. What were you saying?”

“I was wondering if you wanted to come meet the lads tonight.”

“Tonight? Sure I’d love to.”

“Great! I’ll call Paul and make him pick us up again.”

“Great.”

I smiled at Harry as he got up from his seat to talk on the phone. I used the moment to check how I looked in the mobile mirror I had in my purse and check my phone as well. Emily had texted me about the date and I couldn’t help but laugh over her cheeky text with me going with Harry home and getting some tonight. Honestly I wasn’t gonna go that far with Harry not on a first date. There might be another date, but that just wasn’t the way I saw him. For some reason I just couldn’t help but see the Harry Styles from One Direction.

Harry was soon back and got out his hand for me to take. I couldn’t believe I was doing this. I was meeting the band that had been holding me together to make me push through being a really young mother.
