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.


5. Plastered all over the internet


I was sitting in my living room enjoying a cup of tea while Caitlin was watching something on TV. I enjoyed my weekends off as much as I possibly could, as it would give me a lot of comfort to just spread out and be myself for a couple of hours. I saw Caitlin changing the channel; she was growing up so fast. And the same thing was I.

She skipped past the celebrity gossip channel where they were talking about Harry.

“Hey Caitlin, can you skip back to that other channel? Mummy would like to see the lady talk about One Direction.”

She did as I said and smile all over her face as she saw Harry appear.

“Look mummy you’re on TV!”

I opened my eyes wider and looked at the pictures of Harry and me. What was going on here?

“Seem to us that Harry Styles might have found himself a never girl. The 18 year old mother and model Alexandria Griffin seemed to be enjoying the company of the young lad as they both got out from the Elle Magazine Friday afternoon. According to the rumours the two lovebirds did a nude photo shoot together and the pictures will be available in the next issue of the magazine.”

“It’s okay Caitlin just go back to your cartoons.”

“But mummy I wanna see Harry!”

“No Caitlin, this is not a program for you. It’s for grownups.”

I took the remote and switched to some random cartoon program and let her watch it as I took my laptop and went online. I checked my mentions, God I hated this. Of course the fans were all at me even though Harry and I hadn’t mentioned each other on twitter. Or that’s what I thought until I saw the one tweet from Harry.

@Harry_Styles: such a pleasure working with a model like @AlexGriffin94! Thanks for the shoot babe xx

Great… just great. I looked around twitter and Facebook and saw a lot of One Direction pages add the pictures of Harry kissing my cheek and from the hugs. I was staring into the computer screen for about an hour before I shut the laptop down and went out into the kitchen to make some food for both Caitlin and I.

“Caitlin dinner is ready.”

When we had finished dinner talking about nothing important really Caitlin went off to play in her room. I could hear the music and everything go mental in her room as I took the dishes. I was soon interrupted by the sound of live while we're young playing on my phone and I immediately knew that my phone was ringing.


"What's going on with you an all this Harry Styles shit? It's all over Facebook!" 

"Trust me Emily, I've been asking myself the same thing ever since I sat it! It was on celebrity gossip!" 

"No way?" 

"I know it so disgusting right? I mean we do one photo shoot together and BAM we're dating according to the world. But I guess Harry's tweet didn't make it better either." 

"He tweeted you?" 

"Yeah he just said thanks for the shoot. It's no biggie." 

"No biggie? Omg hold on. You say Harry Styles tweeting you isn't a biggie?! He's HARRY FUCKING STYLES!" 

"Emily it's okay, I'm probably never gonna see him again anyway." 

"No because of course you didn't ask for his number because you're that stupid..." 

"No I didn't have to ask for his because he asked for mine." 


"You heard me. I have his number." 


"I know!" 

"Soon you'll be close and you'll meet the rest of the band and you'll date Harry and everything will just be perfect omg!" 

"Calm yourself down woman." 

We laughed for a bit and spoke more on the situation. I ended the call when I heard a bang and soon the room was filled with Caitlin crying. 

I threw my phone on the kitchen counter and ran into her room. 

"What happened babe?" 

I was sitting on the floor with her on my lap. After trying to comfort her I wiped away her tears and sat her on the bed. She had a bruise on her forehead that was turning purple. 

"What happened?" 

I held her hands as she tried to speak through the tears telling me that she fell and hit her head against the corner of the bed when she was dancing around. 

We went into the living room where she lay down sobbing on the couch. 

"It hurts mummy!" 

"I know it does sweetie." 

I sat down beside her rubbing her back while I was watching Top Model on TV. I needed inspiration to my next shoot. Caitlin had a cold dishcloth against her forehead to make the bump smaller.

I went through my tweets on my phone. My mentions were spammed with people asking who I was and how I knew Harry. I felt like tweeting something but from what I had learned it was better just to let it pass me. 

Caitlin was still sobbing while lying down next to me and I became sadder and sadder from hearing it. 

"Mummy will be right back sweetie. I just need to do a call." 

"No mummy!" 

The tears popped up in her eyes and she started crying again. Oh God why was I this weak? 

"Caitlin do you want an ice cream you can sit in here with and watch some cartoons while I'm on the phone?" 

She nodded while the tears were streaming down her cheeks. 

"I'll just go get you one then." 

I went out in the kitchen and found some soda ice cream and handed it to her in the living room where she nicely sat and ate it. 

I went back out into the kitchen and wipes away the tears that had appeared in my eyes before I found the number I was looking for on my phone and pressed the call button. 


The husky voice filled my ear and I couldn't help but smile. 

"Harry? Hi it's Alex." 

"Oh hey beautiful."

"I was just wondering since when did we start dating? Because I think i skipped our first date." 

I laughed a bit to myself and I could hear Harry giggle on the other end of the phone. 

"Apparently since we saw each other the first time." 

"Oh bummer..." 

We laughed a bit more. God I loved hearing his voice. 

We spoke for a while about everything and nothing for a while. 

"Alex I was actually thinking about something." 


"Do you wanna go out tomorrow night? Just the two of us."

"I'd love to Harry, but I have Caitlin. I can't just leave her alone." 


"I'll call my mum and ask if she'll babysit her till Monday morning and make sure she get's to reception." 

"Sounds great." 

"I'll call you back when I've spoken with her." 

"Sure thing." 

I hung up and called my mum fast. She'd live to babysit Caitlin and she told me Nick was there as well to take care of her. I smiled as I called Harry back and told him the great news. Honestly I couldn't believe that I was going on a date with Harry. This was gonna be so awesome. 

I went back into the living room where I saw Caitlin sleeping on the couch. Poor thing was so tired after she hit her head. I took the ice paper out of her hand and threw it out, out in the kitchen. I let her sleep on the couch until I was going to bed myself. 

I changed her into her pyjamas and lay her down on my bed before I changed myself and lay down cuddling her up to me.
