All I Ever Wanted

How does someone so easily come into your life and change everything? Alanah Robson, 17, didn't know entering a simple contest for her favourite band, One Direction, would cause a chain of events to set off, changing the rest of her life.


12. Flicks & Chicks

(Harry's P.O.V)

“Alanah?” I couldn’t believe what was before my eyes. She was here! Why did I not know about this?

                “Hi Harry” She smiled. I just stood there, staring at her, unsure of what to say.

                “You’re here?” I managed to choke out. I think that statement caught her a little off guard. She just looked back at me, raising her eyebrows a tad.

                “Yeah I am…” She looked down and started to play with her fingers. I immediately felt guilty for not being more excited. I mean inside I felt like I wanted to scream and jump on top of her. But I just couldn’t find the proper words to express that. Instead, I took a few steps forward, grabbed her hands in my own, and pulled her into my arms.

                I rested my chin on her shoulder, as hers was placed softly into my chest. An overwhelming feeling took over but I couldn’t put my finger on exactly what it was. After some time, I loosened my grip on her letting her step back a bit. I looked into her eyes and smiled. She smiled up at me, her blue eyes seeming to have a brighter shine. “How?” I tilted my head to the side a bit.

                “Well I got accepted to Kingston University here in London. So the boys and I decided we would surprise you.” She giggled a little, looking down. Obviously embarrassed by what she had just expressed.

                “Thanks guys!” I shouted to the kitchen where they were all waiting. I heard an eruption of wolf whistles in response. Alanah and I just looked at each other and laughed. “I’m glad we’re finally together.” I placed a hand on her shoulder, massaging my thumb in small circles.

                “Me too.” She nodded her head, an infectious smile spreading across her face. I couldn’t help but smile when I was around her. The joy radiating off of her was contagious. She could light up a room, just by simply being there.

                “Well Alanah, we were about to watch a movie. Would you like to join us?”

                The boys heard this and quietly came around the corner to see what was going on. Alanah turned around and winked at the boys, then turned back to me. “I would love to!”

                “YAY! Movie time!” Louis came in and jumped onto the couch. All the other boys cracked up at his actions. I found it slightly embarrassing in front of Alanah. But when I looked back to her, she was laughing just as hard as the boys.

She looked up to notice the annoyed look on my face. Slowly, she leaned in, to whisper something in my ear, “It’s okay Harry. The boys and I have become great friends.” I pulled back and gave her a reassuring look, to let her know I was okay with it.

We all settled into the couches, after letting Alanah pick the movie. She finally decided on Mean Girls. Classic chick flick. But at least it was funny. I sat on the end of the couch beside Alanah, who had Liam to her left.

At first, it was kind of awkward between Alanah and I. We sat in silence watching the movie, letting out laughs at the funny parts. But honestly, all I could focus on was her. The way she tilted her head back when she laughed. How she sat with her legs curled up to her right, so she was angled closer in my direction. How her face got rosy whenever there was a kissing scene.  I was interested in every detail about her.

I looked down to Zayn, who was sitting across from me on the floor. He mouthed the words ‘make a move’ and then nudged his head towards where Alanah was sitting. I turned my head back to look at her. I started to reach my hand out, but then hesitated when she shuffled slightly, moving her feet in closer. I took a deep breath, then moved my hand out again, placing it on the middle of her thigh. She looked back at me and then took my hand in her opposite hand, pulling my arm around her shoulders, and leaning against my chest. I let out a sigh of relief, looking down at Zayn who gave a me a thumbs up.

We sat in comfort like that for the rest of the movie. When it was over, I looked down to find Alanah had fallen asleep. The boys all looked at us and started laughing, “Good luck with that one Harry!” Niall pushed my shoulder.

“I like it, I think it’s kind of nice.” I admitted.

“Oh Harry!” Louis came up and pinched my cheeks, “you have a crush! How cute.”

I let out a small laugh, “I guess I do.” Alanah stirred in her sleep, cuddling in closer with my chest. My eyes widened, and I looked up at the boys. They were all smiling at me.

“Its pretty late, I think im going to go home. Bye boys!” Zayn said getting up and heading to the front door. A chorus of ‘me too’ erupted after him, the rest of the boys following. Liam stayed back a bit.

“Alanah has school tomorrow. You should probably wake her up soon and take her back to her apartment.” He said, before walking out with the rest of the boys.

I let Alanah sleep for another half hour, while I watched some TV. When I looked at the time it was already midnight. “shit” I muttered. I placed a gentle hand on her shoulder and shook her a little, “Alanah, wake up love.” I whispered softly. She rolled over to face me, and then opened her eyes, looking around at the room.

“Where are the other boys?” She asked.

“Hello to you too” I joked.

She laughed, shaking her head. “I didn’t mean it like that Harry.”

“I know. You’re so happy to be here with me, alone.” I winked. She rose her eyebrows suggestively. I took this opportunity to move in closer, resting my forehead on hers. “Im happy you’re here” I whispered.

“Mm” she moved in even closer connecting our lips. I pulled her up onto my lap, keeping our lips connected. She tangled her hands in my curls; I placed my hands on her hips. The kiss was slow, but passionate. You could feel how much we had longed to be together.

When we pulled away, she rested her forehead on mine again. “I hate to say this, but I should be heading home soon.”

I groaned, but lifted her off my lap, grabbing her hand, and guiding her to the front door. “Well then let’s get going.” I said grabbing my jacket.

“I can call a cab.” She offered.

“No way am I letting you call a cab. I’ll drive you” I protested.

“Thank you Harry.” She placed a soft kiss on my cheek.

“Maybe I’ll do it more often” I smiled. She giggled, turning me on immensely. Hot.

We walked out to the car and climbed in, I held her hand on my lap as we drove. I turned on the radio, like we did in Vancouver, and song along. When we arrived at her apartment, she let out a small sigh.

“I had fun tonight. Thanks for letting me stay” She smiled.

“Thanks for the surprise” I leaned in planting a kiss on her lips. She didn’t let it go too far, before pulling back and getting out of the car.

“Bye Harry!” She said before closing the door behind her. I watched her walk up the stairs into the doors of the building, before driving away.
