19. My DATE
Nathalie opened the door. "Hey, you're ready ?" "Yep, I'll just grab my bag." She went back inside and came back right away. "Let's go." "My boyfriend's waiting outside." We went downstairs and into the car. "Hi I'm Nathalie." She said. Harry turned around. "Hi I'm Harry. It's nice to meet you Nathalie." He smiled. He was so cute. "Oh my god... I mean it's nice to meet you too." She looked over to me. I smiled. "You like sushi ?" "Love them." Great I thought. She seemed very down to earth. We talked a bit going there and it was nice to know her. We arrived and Harry wouldn't get out of the car, we didn't want to end up in a sea of fans. "Have fun." His green eyes were looking right at me. I leaned in giving him a quick peck on his lips. "I will don't worry." "Yeah, she seems very nice. I'll come and get you okay ?" "Thanks."
Me and Nathalie went inside and sat down at a table. "You could've told me your boyfriend is freakin' Harry Styles." I laughed. "Yeah, sorry about that. Are you a fan ?" "A fan? Me ? Of course ! I love them ! I really like Niall." She smiled. "Well that's great cause he's single and one of my best friends." Her eyes looked up and widened. "Really ?" "Well yes, I'll see what I can do for you." I said looking at my nails. We laughed for a while still talking about the guys, what she liked, what I liked and all we had in common. She was great. "I realized you have an English accent but I can hear some French too." I was surprised by her question. "That's right, I lived in England then I moved to France and I just moved back here." "Oh France ? That's amazing ! I would love to go there. Why did you move there ?" That was a question I liked to not answer and I think she had realized it. "I'm sorry if I asked something I shouldn't have." I didn't like to answer that question for sure but even if I had known Nathalie for about 2 hours, I felt like I was very close to her and I could trust her.
"Well it's a long story. Actually me and Louis were best friends before he was famous. I dated a guy that Louis never really liked. I had fallen head over heels with him but things got weird. He started being abusive, physically and mentally. I had been able to break up with him but he would stalk me. I lived with my mom and brother Antoine, who's studying in the USA right now. A few days before that Louis got put in the band 'One Direction' on the X factor, my mom got diagnosed with cancer. They said that they had found out to late and that they weren't sure she would survive it. With Louis getting famous, we totally lost contact. I would try to talk to him and call him but he didn't answer anymore. He was my only friend and my ex Jimmy was still stalking me. One month later, my mother died. She was French so we moved to France for her to be buried there and so I had the feeling to be closer. It was also a good thing cause Jimmy wouldn't find me there." My eyes were tearing up. "Oh my god... Lu ! I didn't know ! I'm sorry !" "It's fine so then a month ago, I met Harry there, we bumped into each other and he took me to the hotel where they were staying. I got to see Louis again. I fell in love with Harry. My brother had to go to college so I decided to go back to London, a place I had known my hole life. But then I met Jimmy again and ended up being hurt. I called Louis and I had been sleeping with them before I came back and met you. I'm sorry to have told you the hole story but it feels good to talk to someone." "No thank you for telling me. I'm happy you trust me enough to tell me." I smiled but then I realized something. "Oh... Can you promise me to not tell anyone my mom died. When I saw Louis I couldn't tell him, I knew he would feel guilty. I didn't tell him nor anyone else." "I don't want to be mean or anything but don't you think you should tell them ? I can see you don't have a lot of people you truly love around you with your mom dying and your brother leaving so I think you need them more then anything." I knew that what she had said was true cause my brother had said the same thing. I just nodded.
After a while we paid. "I got a text from Harry asking if you want to hang out with us." That wasn't totally true, while going to the bathroom I had called Harry telling him about her crush. "I really don't want to bother..." "You won't, it would really be amazing if you can come. I haven't had a girl friend in ages. We will stop a Starbucks and at a little cupcake cafe before going back to their place." She blushed a bit. She made me think about Niall, she was cute, she gave hugs, she was nice, easy to talk to and she would blush. "Sounds great."
