Harry was driving us back to their apartment to drop of my stuff. I was going to stay the night with them and then leave the next day to my place. Once we dropped my stuff off, Niall said, "Hey why don't we go out for some coffee?" I shrugged at the idea, but realized that it was part of his plan.
"Oh okay, sure," I said, putting on a smile and nodding at him. Niall gave me a smile and looked at Harry. I looked up at Harry, his brow was raised at me. "You should come along, since we can... actually enjoy some time with you while your girlfriend is out."
"Oh um, I'm not really sure..." he mumbled. I gave him a pleading look and Niall did the same. We must have looked like children, because it worked. "Alright! Let's go."
We walked back out to his car. Niall sat up front with Harry while I sat in the back. As Harry started driving, Niall said, "Babe, you look kind of warm in that."
"Oh, yeah, it's kinda warm, I would take it off but..." I bite my bottom lip. It was a grey sweatshirt that had a big pink heart on it. I was also wearing a pair of grey skinnys. I thought it would be a little chilly in London, but I was wrong. I kind of wished I was wearing a t-shirt or tank top. Thankfully I was wearing my black flip flops.
"But what, sweetheart?" Niall asked, turning around in his seat to look at me. He actually looked a bit worried.
"I um... I'm only wearing my bra underneath," I smiled sheepishly and embarrassed. Niall let out a small laugh. I let out an embarrassed giggle, looking up at the mirror. Harry wasn't looking into it, but I saw him smirk, and blush. I loosened up a bit and relaxed.
"It's okay, you can take it off, I'm sure Harry has clothes in here or something," Niall said. He turned back around in his seat but looked up at Harry. "Don't you Harry?"
"Oh, um yeah," Harry said, stopping at a light. He turned around and pointed to the back of his car. "There should be a black t-shirt back there that's clean." I nodded at him and he turned back around. I fished around in the back until I found the shirt he was talking about. It was his black Ramones shirt. There were butterflies in my stomach. His scent was on it, but it was clean, like it was just washed.
"Okay, don't look," I said. Niall covered his eyes with his hands while Harry looked straight ahead. He couldn't really cover his eyes because he was driving. I pulled off my sweatshirt and sat there for a second in my nude colored bra, before slipping on Harry's shirt. "okay done. Thanks for the shirt Ner- I mean Harry!" I saw his eyes dart up in the mirror, staring back at mine. He looked so happy. I gave him a smile and he smiled back.
"Keep it, I barely wear it anymore," he said. Niall uncovered his eyes and looked at me.
"You look cute," he complimented me. I gave him a smiled, and he gave me another wink. I let out a laugh.
"Thanks, Harry owns some cute clothes," I said. Harry let out a small laugh, but then sighed. He tried to hide it by clearing his throat.
"We're here," he said, parking the car. We stepped out and walked into the small cafe.
"Oh Niall, I'm hungry! Can we get food too?" I asked like a happy child.
"Yeah sure, I just need to go to the bathroom, I'll be back," he said, leaving Harry and I alone.
"Oh my God! You're Harry Styles! And that was Niall Horan! And you're Bow Cascade! Wow, this is so cool!" the young girl at the cash register fangirled. "C-Can I get a picture?"
"Sure," Harry said, with a friendly smile.
"I can take it," I said politely. She seemed like a really nice girl. She had a dark cocoa complexion of skin, sparkling brown eyes, long wavy, healthy, dark brown hair, and she had a really nice smile. She was really pretty. She smiled at me, handing me her phone. "Say cheese!" I laughed as they smiled and repeated. It was a nice picture.
Just then, Niall walked out of the bathroom and strolled over to us. "Oh gosh it's Niall," the girl gasped. I let out a laugh.
"Here, why don't you two stand next to each other and I'll take the picture," I smiled at her. She happily obeyed and stood next to Niall. I made them say 'cheese' and gave her back her phone.
"Oh um, I was thinking maybe I could get a picture with you too," the girl said.
"Oh sure," I blushed. Normally I didn't take pictures with anyone, but I guess I was going to now. Niall took the picture for us before handing her phone back to her. Just as someone was leaving, she asked them to take a picture of all four of us. After that she wouldn't stop thanking us. "It's all good," I said to her, finding her happiness really funny. She was trying to be calm, but was fangirling at the same time.
"I'm Kaylen by the way," she said, calming down immediately. "It's so nice to meet at least two of the boys from One Direction, and my role model from when I was younger!" I blushed, knowing that she was referring to my modeling days. I model for my father's children clothing line and teen clothing line. "I always wanted to be a model, but I just never got the time to do it, and I don't think I could be a great model..." She looked so sad and lost.
"Don't say that," I said, surprising myself as I took hold of her hands. "You're really beautiful and I think you could be an amazing model." She looked at me, her eyes suddenly got watery.
"Y-You really think so?" Kaylen said quietly. I smiled at her and nodded.
"In fact, why don't you give me your number and I can refer you to my dad's modeling agency," I said in a cheerful tone. Kaylen smiled so widely at me as she scribbled down her number on a piece of paper before giving it to me. I took it and placed it in my pocket.
"Uh, I don't mean to sound rude, but I'm getting hungry... can we order?" Niall asked. I rolled my eyes at him. Kaylen made her way around the counter. She took our orders and then said she'd call out our names for us to retrieve them.
"Do the turkey bagels really taste good?" I asked since Niall was insisting I get it. I didn't really like turkey, but I got it anyways along with my caramel mocha. Niall and Harry both got frapes. Harry got a regular bagel with cream cheese and jam while Niall got a turkey sandwich.
"I think they taste great," Niall smiled at me. I rolled my eyes at him.
Withing a few minutes, Kaylen brought us our drinks and even though I wanted her to join us, because she seemed cool, she had to go tend to other costumers. I eyed my bagel as Harry began eating his and Niall practically finished his. I took a bite of mine, and it wasn't bad but I still didn't like the taste of turkey.
"You don't seem to like yours," Harry said, taking another bite of his bagel before putting it down. I shrugged my shoulders and shook my head. "Let's trade."
"Thanks, I kind of forgot I don't really like turkey much," said as he switched our sandwiches. I too a bite into his bagel and was instantly happy. Although it was really simple, it tasted good and sweet. Harry happily at my bagel giving me a smile.
After we finished, we sat there sipping our drinks. "So Harry," Niall said. "About Kendra-"
"I have a confession to make!" he blurted out. I looked at Niall who looked back at me. "She's been blackmailing me, that's why I've been going out with her." I froze in my seat, my muscles tensing up. Niall sat there blankly.
I started laughing, making both of the boys jump. "S-Sorry, it's just that's such a relief," I said, laughing in sheer joy. I calmed down after a while and looked at Harry. "So, how is she blackmailing you?"
"Oh uh... she said she has pictures of me naked... on her phone..." he said nervously, looking everywhere but at me. He even looked at Niall but not me.
"How did she get those?" I asked.
"Well...um I think we kind of..." Harry was mumbling. "We slept... together..."
I felt the cup slip from my hands and hit the table top. Lucky for us, it didn't tip over. I know I shouldn't have taken his words to heart, since we weren't dating or anything, but it hurt. It hurt to know that he did those kinds of things with another girl since I really started to like him. A lot.
"Oh um..." was all I could say. I rested back against my chair and tilted my head back to look up at the ceiling. "Niall and I aren't really dating."
"What?" Harry said. Out of the corner of my eyes, I saw his head snap towards my direction and then to Niall, and then back towards me.
"Yeah, I kind of made her go out with me so we could figure out this mess you were in," Niall confessed. "Wow, finally nice to have that out of the bag, right Bow?"
"Sure, I-I guess," I replied back, feeling like shit. I was so fucking close to crying. Maybe Harry never liked me back like that? Why was I getting so worked up? How could I let myself fall?
"I guess you can tell him now," Niall said in a sing song voice. I snapped my head up and gave him my signature death glare.
"Tell me what?" Harry said, looking straight at me.
"I guess I should leave you two alone to talk, I'll be in the car, waiting," Niall chuckled, grabbing the keys off the table and walking out of the cafe. I was going to kill him.
"What did you have to tell me?" Harry asked.
There was no way I could escape this now. It was too upset to lie without being found out. "Uh Harry..." I said, my voice becoming shaky.
"What is it Bow?" Harry asked softly. I looked up into his eyes. Fuck, those green eyes were so magical. I think I got lost in them for a second. "You can tell me."
"Fuck it Harry," I said frustrated. "I think I love you!" As soon as I said it I covered my mouth with my hands. I took a glance at him. He looked so frozen and terrified. "Shit, just forget I said that okay?"
"I'm not dreaming am I?" Harry asked quickly, taking me by surprise. "You really said that right?"
"Yeah... Can we just forget it?" I whined, feeling uncomfortable.
"How can I?!?" he said, jumping up. I felt like crying. Maybe he hated me. Oh my gosh Bow, when did you ever become so weak? Why do I even care? "How can I forget when the girl I love just told me she loved me back?"
I stood up and found myself smiling. I was about to hug him and kiss him, but I instantly remembered Kendra.
"Wait..." I sighed.
"What?" Harry said confused.
"Until we get rid of Kendra, I have to date Niall still, and you have to date Kendra," I said sadly. His face turned pale and he looked so sad all of a sudden. I weakly smiled at him. "But don't you worry Nerd, I have a plan."
