My Temperature Rising

Ryan was a typical 16 year-old girl that moved from the States to London because her mom got a upgrade in her job from AT&T. Being raised in Texas was a noticeable difference at her new English high school. She started meeting this boy that lived in the same apartment building as she was. With his beautiful soothing Irish accent voice Niall Horan, Ryan made a new friend.But she was also used to either hanging out with Niall or mostly spending her time alone until her chemistry teacher paired her up with Harry Styles. Having major differences, unless you count them both having curly brown hair, this would be a challenge. Especially since Ryan might have a crush for this boy. . . but she might already have feelings for her new friend Niall. Who would she pick over?


7. Hittin' it off

Tonight is the big night. Niall is takin' me out to a proper dinner date. I'm so excited! The only other time that I've went out on a date was. . . Cesar. Gosh that seemed so far away along with all the drama. Niall is different. Soo different. He's so unique that he doesn't even know how much I see it in him. It's like his glow just radiates off of him. After Valentines day things have been pickin' back up. Even though I already know Niall, every day is a new fact 'bout him. It's like there's more to him than i would've ever know. I'm really lookin' forward our date tonight. He joked today that it would be a Nandos but I actually don't mind where the date is, aslong as it's with him. But Niall said it's gonna be a nice, proper, elegant dinner. I'm so nervous. 

I heard a knock at my door. Right now?! I'm not anywhere near ready! Niall can't be here to pick up already! I had on a t-shirt and my skinny jeans on and ran towards the door. Scared to see who's behind the door, I opened it.

Scarin' myself half to death, I found Harry. Shocked actually. 

"Hey, " he said.

Speechless, but had an action to return to his comment. I simply slapped him across his face.

"OW! What was THAT for?!?" 

"FOR LEAVIN' ME AND PULLIN' A DISAPPEAR TRICK!" I yelled. I wrapped my arms around his neck and hugged him for dear life. I felt his arms wrap 'round my waist and his head dig next to my ear.

He whispered, "I'm sorry."

I pulled outta the hug and yanked him into my unit. I had so much to tell him, even if he disappeared for like a week.

"Start by tellin' me what the hell happened to you, " I demanded.

There was a good amount of silence that filled my bedroom. He, standin', moved next to me on my bed and stared at all my clothes on the floor and bed. He trailed the chaos and his eyes then caught my eyes and just. . . stared into my soul. As if I could hear him say, " I'm so sorry." I looked away from him and got up from my bed and stared down at him in an upset face. He sighed and looked down at his hands that were in his lap. He's tired. I could tell.

He picked his head up and asked me, " So you're going on a date with him tonight. Need some help?"

I was so confused. First he was dodgin' me for a week, and now he just shows up and acts likes nothin' happened? No. I NEED and explanation. 

"Harry, stop dodgin' the question. Please."

He looked at me with such sad eyes. How couldn't I know? How haven't I see this before? I sat next to him and wrapped my arms 'round him and hugged him so tightly. He slowly wrapped his arms 'round me once again. 

"Harry I love you. I really do but just as a friend. I care 'bout you so much just. . . not in a relationship, girlfriend kinda way. Do you understand?"

He didn't bother liftin' his head up from my arm. I knew his answer was that he's not alright and probably never will be. It's gonna be hard but it is what it is and I know he's sufferin'. But I can't let him ruin my date tonight. My date tonight! I looked at my alarm clock to see it read 5:40 p.m. My date is at 6 and Niall is comin' up to pick me up. I don't have time to deal with Harry right now and I really can't have him here to have Niall see him and get upset all over again. But how do I kick him out? Well how 'bout reverse physiology. 

"Hey Harry. Harry."

He nodded his head in response.

"How 'bout you spend the night with me?" It's worth a shot.

First there was a silence and then he nodded. I released him from our hug and helped him get comfy on my bed. 

"Now Harry, you're not just gonna be a lump on a log. You're actually gonna do somethin'."

He sighed in disagreement. 

"You're gonna help me get dressed."

At first he gave this weird, shocked look and then I rephrased the command. 

I pulled out all of my dresses and he would give me a thumbs up or a thumbs down. We went down to the top 3 dresses and I have 5 minuetes till Niall would be knockin' on my door. Thank the Lord that I don't wear make up and already got my hair fixed. The first dress is a knee length, flowy light green dress that was a sweetheart. The second is a black dress, mid thigh dress that had straps and a lil tight. The last was a beauty. It is a white, flower detailed dress that went mid calf and is a sweetheart. We looked in agreement that the last one was the lucky charm. 

As I was infront of my mirror and hold my locks of hair to my right and turned to my left to see Harry zip me up, he slowly reached the end of the zip line and he stared at my neck. I stared at him. Don't do it. Resist me. He realized that I was starin' at him and it was as if we were telepathic. He nodded at me as if to say sorry. I put on my necklaces and bracelets. I heard the knock on my door.

"I'll be there in a bit!" I yelled. I looked to Harry and said, "If ya want order some pizza and flip on the tv. I don't know when I'm comin' back. And don't make a mess okay?" 

He nodded and flipped on the tv.

I went over and kissed his cheek . He looked back at me with confusion and I walked away and right before I closed the door I gave him my friendly smile.

I walked towards the door and looked in the peep hole. Always wanted to do that. Sure enough Niall was there. I unlocked the door and was blown away on how rather dashin' he looked. His jaw dropped in shocked and I felt my cheeks burn up. All he said was, "Beautiful." I giggled. He pulled out his arm , like a sir, and i wrapped mine 'round his andI grabbed my coat and we walked down the stairs and headed towards the restaurant.

The city was beautiful and we headed into an elegant steakhouse restaurant with dim lightin'. It looked like a pretty expensive place for a 1st date if you ask me. But hey I ain't mad.

*        *        *        *        *        *        *

"That was amazin' Niall, " I said with genuine smile.

"All for you love!" he shouted.

After dinner we'd went to the London Eye to over look the night sky and the starry city below us. It was absolutely extraordinary. Next week Niall promised me we'd go beyond the eye can see and stare at some real stars. I'm so fascinated by stars and astronomy and language. 

We've been walkin' for ages but it's alright, as long as I'm with him. All we did the rest of the night was have non-stop conversations 'bout our lives and makin' each other laugh. I'm so glad I went with Niall. He might be the best choice I've made in my life.

Later we decided to rest a bit at the nearest park and sit on a bench. He pulled his arm 'round me and I started to feel sleepy. I leaned on his shoulder, so muscular, and started to drift away by accident. That might have been an awkward situation he had to deal with but actually he feel asleep as well. Should've known. 

I woke up to the sounds of sirens and the lights of ambulances. Wonderful. Niall woke up the same as I did. We both looked at each other, unconscious, and unaware of the time. Suddenly we both got the same thought of, "Oh my gosh we slept on the bench in the park in the middle of the night!" We sprung out of our cozy cuddle and called a cab. Knownin' us we would never make it out alive if we had to walk home. 

Once we finally got home, payed the taxi driver, went through the entrance, we both did a quick good bye so that we can knock out on our beds. But before I knew it Niall's face was right in front of me. His lips onto mine. Needless to say we had "The Moment". It was beautiful. I finally got a different look from Niall. Somethin' I've never seen clear enough before. He looks beautiful. With his sky blue eyes, his bleached blonde but naturally brown hair, his genuine smile. . . How could I not see this before? And without me cathcin' myself, I said:

"You're beautiful."

"Not as close to your beauty."

"That was beautiful, " I said, speechless. He chuckled a bit, gave me a kiss on my forehead, and said good night. I didn't noticed that I couldn't stop smilin'. So this is what it feels like. To be loved truly. What a wonderful feelin'.

I went upstairs to my unit, unlocked my door then locked it again once I was inside, and plopped onto my bed, after changin' of course. I was half asleep to noticed that I, first forgot that Harry was stayin' for the night, grabbed Harry's chest and cuddled next to him. Of course in my mind I thought it was Niall. What I didn't know, or payed attention to, was that Harry kissed my forehead and I kissed his cheek. I guess then on he got the message that I'm exhausted. He flipped off the T.V. and embraced me in his chest with his arms 'round my torso. And we all that night drifted off into our endless dreams.
