The Mistake I Made

Hi my names Julie. I am only 17 years old and work at Holmes Chapel bakery, yes the one that the one and only Harry Styles used to work at, emphasis on the “used to”. I am a huge One Direction fan and so is my best friend Mina which makes us even closer. We always hope that maybe one day he might walk in to check in to see the shop, but that hasn’t happened for the past year.

22. A Realization.


I turned around and ran out of the facility they were having rehearsals. I ran as fast as could to Mina's I didn't want my parents to see me like this because it's hurts me to see them upset, especially over me. Luckily Mina was home and her family wasn't so she let me in "Julie what's wrong" she knew Harry and I have been fighting for the past days so she knew everything that was going on.

"Harry and I broke up" I told her.

"Why?" which I knew she was going to ask me and she did.

"He thought Zayn and I had a thing and assumed we were through and, and he-he slept with - with Ve- Ve - Veronica!" and by that point I was sobbing.

"What the hell?!" she replied and hugged me. "This calls for a girl night” and with that we drove to my house to change my clothes and get snacks and movies for tonight. I changed into sweats and a long sleeve and threw my hair up into a loose, messy bun. We spent the night talking, laughing, crying, eating ice cream and watching multiple movies. It was so fun to spend time just the two of us and we both enjoyed it. 

“Sooo how are you and Niall?” I had to ask and she just smiled at his name which made me smile too.

“We’re good” was all she said. Well that didn’t last too long.

“Have you guys talked about what you’re going to do when he leaves for tour?” I was curious about their relationship I mean I am her bestfriend.

“We haven’t actually talked too much about him leaving. What about you? Are you still going to visit?” I paused unsure of what to say since I was no longer with Harry, but I could always visit Zayn instead.

“Yeah over summer when they are in America. Zayn and I are going to visit Boston U” I told her and she smiled. Throughout the night we talked more and more about the boys and every time one of us spoke of Zayn or mentioned his name my heart fluttered.

“Julie, we need to try this sushi place Niall showed me, maybe we could go tomorrow?” she asked me but I was pretty lost in my own thoughts about Zayn. “Julie?” she repeated but shook my shoulder that snapped me back into reality.

“Huh?” I said.

“I said is we should check out this sushi place Niall showed me tomorrow” she told me for a second time.

“Sure sounds fun!” I smiled and we headed upstairs and went to sleep.

I kept having dreams with Zayn in them and us together, laughing and having a good time. But each dream we seemed to become closer and closer in our relation between each other. Mina woke me up the next morning I knew I had to tell her. After I told her about my dreams she just looked at me funny but with a smile. “You know what Julie” she said and plopped down next to me.

“What?” I had an idea of what she was going to say but I didn’t want to admit it to myself. I don’t think I wanted to believe it either.

“I think,” she paused “that you,” she paused again, JUST SPIT IT OUT I was thinking through this, “like” she continued “ZAYN. It could be like a double date!” she finished and ran off. I didn’t chase after her because she was right. I did like Zayn. I just didn’t want to believe it. She came back into the room with a look on her face that just screamed out ‘I have an idea and you’re gonna hate it’ so I prepared myself. “You should invite Zayn to come to sushi with us and I’ll tell Niall to come too!” not as bad as I thought so I went with it.

“Ok” I agreed and picked up my phone to call him.

“You know, since Zayn likes you as well and he’s your OTHER best friend. Next to me” she said with a smile and flipped her hair to act arrogant and I couldn’t help but laugh at her gestures.

I unlocked my phone to see my lock screen. It was multiple photos some of me and Zayn and others with me and Mina. I have to admit they were all cute. They were like the pictures you would take in a photo booth with goofy faces and having a good time. One of the pictures of me and Zayn I didn’t notice the way he was looking at me. It was indescribable and gave me butterflies.  I dialed Zayn’s number and within three rings I heard his sleepy voice speak. “Hello?” he asked.

“Hi” I smiled and bit my lip.

“Oh hi Julie. What’s up?” he seemed a little more awake now.

“Well I was just wondering if – uh – you wanted to go to sushi with Mina, Niall and me.” I asked and he agreed.

“What time should we meet and do you think you could just text me the address and stuff so I’ll meet you there?” he asked I agreed to that and we said our goodbyes and that we’ll see each other later.

Mina and I got ready for the day and I texted Zayn all the details and what he needed to know. To be honest I was looking forward to this “double date” we were going to have. Once we were all ready Mina we left to go pick up Niall. I sat in the back so Niall could sit with Mina up front. I was planning a way to tell Zayn I liked him. But Mina had to know too; I’m pretty sure she told Niall because she tells him everything but he didn’t tell Zayn. My idea was that we would eat lunch and Mina and Niall would go somewhere and Zayn and I would be alone and I would tell him.

Once we got to the sushi place Zayn was already there waiting for us and I smiled at the sight of him and his face lit up as well. Mina and Niall walked hand in hand and met up with him too as he pulled me into his arms and I wrapped mine around his neck and I didn’t want let go but I had too, sadly. Lunch went well and soon after we paid Mina and Niall took off and went their separate way so it was just me and Zayn. “Do you want to catch up with them or?” he asked.

“Nah we can hangout” I laughed and we went to get ice cream. As we were walking I took another bite of my ice cream and looked at Zayn he was a couple inches taller than me so I had to look at him to look at his perfectly chiseled facial structure as he took another bite of his ice cream. “Uhm” I started but the words stuck in my throat.

“Hm” he turned and looked at me with his mouth full of ice cream and I just shook my head. Once he turned his head back around I spoke “Zayn, I like you too” and he paused at first but then turned and faced me. He dropped his ice cream and grabbed my face and crashed his lips onto mine. I wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him back. Our lips moved perfectly in sync and I felt butterflies in my stomach as we continued. It was different than any kiss Harry and I shared; it was better.
