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.


2. Hanging out with Harry Styles


We were all standing in the flat in Westminster. Caitlin was placed on Harry's arm as soon as he was inside the flat. 

"Harry, come see my room!" 

She made her way down and pulled Harry around the entire flat. Emily and I couldn't help ourselves from laughing out really loud, but honestly he seemed to really enjoy being around her. 

Emily and I were standing in the door looking at Harry as he was playing with Caitlin on the floor. He was really good with kids and I couldn't help myself from falling a bit for that charming person sitting on the floor with my princess. 

"I'm guessing I'll be doing the cooking now that you're all over my daughter?"

"No don't worry about it I'll be there in a second." 

"Yeah good luck with that." 

I sent him a smirk before I took Emily with me out into the kitchen. 

"Omg how can you be so calm?! Harry freaking Styles is in your flat and omg you touched his naked body... I would be so dead!" 

"I didn't just touch it I kissed him." 

I sent her a wink as I found the things I needed for the food. 

"You kissed Harry?!" 

"It was a part of the job okay? How else do you think I got the love bite?" 

"I don’t know intensity?" 

"Very funny..." 

"What's funny?" 

Harry walked out into the kitchen and smiled all over his face. 

"Never mind. Emily can I get you to leave the kitchen please?" 


Emily left the kitchen shortly after and I was left alone with a smiling Harry. 

"Make yourself useful Harry. There's a lot of things that need to be done." 

Harry started making the salad as I was making the the chicken we were having. The kitchen was filled with silence and I couldn't help but feeling bothered. 

"So Harry." 


"How is it being works famous? Do you enjoy it?" 

"I'm not in this for the fame you know? Music is really just my passion." 

"Yeah okay. But don't tell me you don't like the girl attention." 

"Of course I like the attention from the girls but I could live without the paparazzi sometimes." 

"Yeah I could imagine." 

"They'll especially be asking now that this shoot is out." 

"What do you mean?" 

"Did you expect them just ignore a naked photo shoot?"


"You know people are gonna talk about it and it'll give you more attention." 

"Yeah I know..." 


Well this had turned out to be something really awkward. Of course I knew people would speak, but that didn't mean I would be the one to get the attention. 

We finished cooking in silence and I went to find Caitlin and Emily when the food was on the table. 

The dinner was quite nice. We had a lovely talk about everything and nothing. When we finished Harry was with Caitlin in her room and Emily and I was cleaning after the dinner.

“So what are you gonna do with him?”

“I’m gonna say thanks for a great evening?”

“And then never see him again? He’s Harry freaking Style for God sake Alex!”

“I know, but it’s to surreal being around him. He’s my idol.”

“Yeah, but you’ll both be at the same meeting about the photo shoot remember?”

“I know, and then I’ll take it from there.”

“You’re so stupid!”

“Emily what the fuck do you want me to do? He’s my idol and he was a great model to work with, but I can’t put my daughter into the spotlight can I? She’s 4 years old!”

“I didn’t say to jump into a relationship with him, but at least think about just being friends with him. He’s such a nice guy!”

“Yeah I know, and I know how much it would mean to my daughter but I can’t just put her into the spotlight ok?”

“I guess.”

We finished the dishes and went into the living room where we were soon joined by Caitlin and Harry. Caitlin was watching some cartoon on the TV while we were talking. Emily got up and left the room when her boyfriend called her in the middle of everything. I think she had forgotten everything about Ryan while we had been here with Harry talking about everything and nothing.

I looked at the time; it was getting late and time for Caitlin to go to bed.

“Caitlin come on it’s time to go to bed.”

“But mummy!”

“No but, you’ve been up for a long time. And it’s time to sleep now. C’mon”

I opened my arms and she crawled up on my lap so I could carry her to the bathroom.

“Do you want me to come?”

Harry looked up from his phone that he had been very busy with ever since Emily had left the room.

“Sure just come.”

I smiled at him as we all three entered the bathroom and I found Caitlin’s pajamas and toothbrush. It took a long time in the bathroom as Caitlin would be fooling around making funny faces with Harry, but at least she got to laugh before she went to bed, and that was something every mother would appreciate the most in life.

We went into Caitlin’s room where I was reading her a story with Harry sitting right beside me. It started knocking on the door and I was really confused. Who would come around at 8.30 pm?

“Harry can you get the door please?”


He got up and I continued reading the story for Caitlin. Emily had locked herself into her room and was still on the phone with Ryan. I listened to what was said in the hall while I was reading for Caitlin. Soon there was a knock on the door to Caitlin’s room and I saw Sam, who was the father of Caitlin appearing behind Harry.

“Goodnight princess.”

She was already sleeping when I kissed her on the cheek and went out of her room with anger written all over my face.

I barely closed the door before I walked past Harry and gave Sam a death glare.

“What are you doing here Sam? You said you didn’t want to have anything to do with her!”

“Can’t a father check on his own daughter?”

“She’s doing fine without you! You said yourself you didn’t want anything to do with her, so leave me alone! Leave my flat!”

“Aye, easy there princess.”

“Don’t you fucking princess me. You’re a prick and I want you out of both her and my life. She’s doing great without you in her life!”

“Yeah I see you found someone to replace me.”

He rolled his eyes in Harry’s direction and I couldn’t help but feeling my temper grow even bigger as build up a wall inside of me.

“Harry has nothing to do with Caitlin.”

“Then what is he doing here?”

“He’s a friend of mine?”

“Oh really? Since when did you become friends with someone you hug on your quilt at night?”

“Get out!”

I pushed him in the chest, but he didn’t go anywhere.

“You sicken me Alex. Look at yourself. Here trying to play all big an almighty when in reality you’re just weak.”

“Oh so I’m the weak one, when you were the one who didn’t grow balls to be a dad for your daughter when you were 16? I raised her while I was still in school! I finished college while taking care of her. I’m the one staying home every night taking care of her while you’re just out with your friends not thinking about what you did! You’re just as big a part of this as I am but you take no responsibility at all! So stay out of her life!”

I felt Harry’s hand on my shoulder as he looked at me.

“I think it’s best if you leave now.”

His smoky voice with the strong accent went through the room just as I heard Caitlin cry in her room. I felt my heart break down. She must have heard our fight.

“Now see what you’ve done Sam.”

I rolled my eyes at him as Harry made his way to Caitlin’s bedroom to take care of her while I finished with Sam.

“So you let him take care of her.”

“She loves him.”

“Please she doesn’t even know what love is.”

“Neither do you! Now leave my flat or I’ll call the police.”

That was enough to get him going. As soon as I had locked the door behind me I went into Caitlin’s bedroom where she was sitting on Harry’s lap. He was trying to calm her down as he was hiding her face in his shoulder. She really did love him, no matter what anyone said.

When Caitlin had calmed down and Harry had put her back to sleep he went out into the living room where I was sitting on the couch.

“You look tired.”

He smiled and placed himself beside me.

“I am.”

“Do you want me to leave?”

“No it’s okay. I just need to sit down for a second.”

He laid a hand on my thigh stroking it a bit while we let the silence fill the room. After a while Harry got up from the couch with a smile on his face.

“I better get going. It’s getting late, and I have work tomorrow morning. I’ll see you at the meeting Friday.”


I got up and followed him out the door.

“I had fun today.”

“Yeah, I did so to. Thanks for taking so good care of my daughter.”

“She’s a lucky girl you know.”

“I know. She’s the best thing I have.”

“You’re a good mother Alex.”

“I try my best to be.”

I smiled before leaning against the door frame.

“You do well.”

A huge smile spread across his face before he opened his arms for a hug and I felt him pull me in tight. I smiled as we said goodbye and I went back into the flat, making sure to lock the door before I went anywhere.

I went into my room where I lay down in the bed. I was exhausted after a day like this, but I guess it was something I had to get used to if I wanted to continue being a model.
