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.


8. Friends with the band


I woke up to Harry stroking my hair the next morning. I didn’t want to get up yet, but I knew I had to.

We hurried up getting dressed and as he promised he took me all the way to my flat. When we were sitting in the car there was this really nice tension between us. It was as if we had become closer to each other through the night, and was just really close friends right now.

We parked the car outside my flat and looked at each other for a while.

“Just hurry up and get your stuff. I’ll take you to the gym.”

“Harry you don’t have to. I can just take my own car. I have to pick up Caitlin when I’m done anyway.”

“I’ll make one of the boys come pick you up at the gym and help you pick Caitlin up.”

“I don’t know if that such a good idea Harry…”

“It’ll bond you with them.”

“I guess…”

“Let’s go get your stuff and get you to the gym. I have to go do an interview at 9.30.”

We got out of the car and made the way inside the flat. The front door was open and I yelled hello as soon as I was inside. Emily soon appeared in the living room with her toothbrush in her mouth and sports clothing.

“Are you going to the gym?”

“Yeah! I need to hear about your date last night.”

“It was a nice dinner.”

Harry appeared behind me and Emily was soon embarrassed over her look of clothes and her toothpaste all over the face.

“Hi Harry.”

She had taken out her toothbrush to greet him and I couldn’t help but laugh a little over her foolishness around him. It was quite sweet actually.

“Em, Harry’s taking me to the gym and I’ll be going to a meeting with Zoe afterwards, but do you want to ride with us to the gym?”

“Yes please!”

She was yelling from her bathroom while she finished brushing her teeth.

“We’ll leave in 10 minutes I just need to change.”

I turned around and looked at Harry.

“Just make yourself comfortable while I’m changing and packing my stuff.”

“Oh so I can just follow you and watch it?”

He smirked at me and I just rolled my eyes at him as I made my way to my room and started changing into my sweatpants and a sports bra. I wasn’t wearing any t-shirt or top over my bra as it would be too warm and I would sweat like a pig whenever I did so. I found my hoodie and wrapped it around me before I started packing my stuff. Soon everything was ready and I found Emily and Harry speaking in the living room.

“Let’s roll.”

I smiled and pulled the bag over my shoulder. We all made our way out of the car and both Emily and I were dropped off at the gym.

Harry got out of the car when we were at the gym and hugged us both and made sure he kissed my cheek, just like he had done it the day at Elle Magazine.

“Have fun sweetie.”

“You too. I’ll text you the address of the meeting. I don’t know where we’re going yet.”

“Sure just let me know and I’ll make sure that one of the boys is picking you up.”

“Thanks Harry.”

I hugged him again before I saw Zoe park her car at the parking lot as well and I knew I needed to get going.

“I’ll see you around Harry.”

My session at the gym wasn’t as hard as I had expected it to be, but Emily was really annoying. She kept asking me strange questions as I was in the middle of something I actually got paid for. I needed to work out to make sure I was beautiful on the stage if I had a catwalk or look beautiful in all of the pictures I had to get taken.

When I had finished working out Zoe and I went out to shower and change into some different clothes.

“Why was Harry taking you this morning?”

“Because I stayed with him over the night.”

“Oh really? So are you dating?”

“I don’t think we will be dating at all Zoe. I keep seeing Harry Styles of One Direction when I’m with him, and he deserves better than that, because he’s actually a really nice guy. Beside I don’t think he’ll be able to take the responsibility that comes with dating me, as I have a daughter as well.”

“You’re probably right.”

“Beside I don’t even know what’s going to happen with me in the future, so I better just stay focused on work right now.”

“Remember to be young once in a while dear Alex.”

“I was young last night, now can I be an adult for the day?”


We laughed a bit for ourselves before we went out to Zoe’s car and drove to a café where we would have a meeting just her and me.

“Zoe, are we staying here till we’ve finished?”

“Yes we are, why dear?”

“I promised one of my friends to text him the address so they could come pick me up and help me pick up Caitlin at reception.”


I found my phone and texted Harry the address for the café and then turned to face Zoe again as we started talking about my diet and everything that was part of my career.

“I actually got you another photo shoot, but it’s just some clothing thing for asos.”

“Oh, that’s good.”

“They’re paying well, so it’ll definitely be worth to take it.”


“And then we have a few fashions shows in a couple of weeks, but it’ll all be settled.”


I wasn't really into this meeting thing. The only thing that filled my mind was the thought of the afternoon with one of the boys from One Direction. 

When it was 2.30 pm we finished the meeting and I went outside where I was greeted by no other than Zayn Malik. 

"Zayn! Hi!" 

I hugged him as he turned around to face me. 

"Alex, hey!" 

He wrapped his arms around me and held me close for a second. 

"Thanks for picking me up Zayn." 

"You're welcome love." 

We got into the car and drove the way to Caitlin's reception. 

The drive was about 10 minutes and we spoke all the way. Zayn smiled to me as we pulled up in front of the school where the reception was at. 

"Do you want me to come with you in?" 

"You sure that wont cause too much trouble and drag too much attention toward us?" 

"I don't care." 

He smirked at me and soon we were both on our way out of the car and inside the school. 

We were standing outside of the classroom just as they were finishing a game. Some of the other parents were there as well and all staring at Zayn and I as we were fooling around. 


I heard Caitlin's voice and shortly after she was hanging around my neck while Zayn was staring at us. 


Caitlin's little voice filled the hall as she let go of me and hugged Zayn. She didn't say anything she just hugged him. Zayn lifted her up in his arms and I smiled because I knew how happy Caitlin was. Zayn was her favourite in the band, just as Harry was mine. 

“Hey beautiful”

He held her close and I couldn’t believe the joy that filled her face.

Before we dragged too much attention to ourselves we went out into the car where we got Caitlin placed in the back and ourselves in the front as we took off.

“Do you wanna go hang out with the lads for the rest of the afternoon?”

“I don’t know Zayn… we need to be back for dinner.”

“I know Harry would like it if you came.”

“He would?”

“Yeah he really would. You know he really enjoyed your company the other night?”

“Yeah I know. I did so too.”


“Yes Caitlin?”

“When are we gonna see Harry again?”

“Aww you miss Harry?”

She nodded and honestly that was answer enough for me to go with Zayn’s idea even though I didn’t like it. We really needed to get back soon.

As soon as we stepped inside the flat I had just been in this morning everyone was greeting both me and Caitlin. Caitlin got all shy as soon as they were all around her and she ending up hiding in my chest for the first time, but soon she was running from boy to boy and I couldn’t help but smile whenever she was interrupting Niall in his gaming on the big screen.


“What’s up princess?!”

Zayn picked Caitlin up from the floor as she started talking about her day at reception. I couldn’t help but smile as I watched her sitting there on Zayn’s lap and he really took care of her.

Harry turned his head and looked at them as well.

“She really enjoys it.”

“Who wouldn’t enjoy being in your company. Emily would die if she knew we were here right now.”

“You could have invited her over?”

“I’d rather pass on that.”

“Why’s that love?”

“Because she’s too much of a fangirl, and she forgot about her boyfriend the night you were at my place.”

“Oh I see.”

“Yeah, it’s a shame though, because she’s actually a really lovely girl!”

“Yeah she seems nice.”

Harry smiled at me and I couldn’t stop staring into those emerald green eyes, but was snapped back to reality when Caitlin climbed up into my lap.


“Yes sweetie?”

I stroke her over her hair but soon found her whispering something into my ear that I couldn’t quite understand, but I guess it wasn’t really important. The only thing I got was that it was something Zayn had whispered to her just before while he had a huge smile all over his face.
