8. Our little chat

Harry's POV

We sat down on the bench by the fountain. Luckily, not many people spotted us today. I feel like such a fool about trying to grab her hand and her rejecting it. I should've believed her when she said she wasn't interested. I was looking down at my hands and when I finally glanced back up at Clare, I caught her staring at me. She quickly looked away and blushed when she realized she was caught.

Clare's POV

"So, um, about what I said, I'm sorry. It was rude of me. I was just having a really bad morning. I just needed to let off some steam and then there you were and i had a very low tolerance for stupidity at the moment and-" Harry cut me off.
"Wait. Did you just call me stupid?" Harry smirked in a cheeky way and cracked a smile.
"No! Not at all." I said very sarcastically and we started laughing.
"It's okay, I should've left you alone." Harry stated.
"Well yeah, you never wanna disturb a girl when she's pissed off." I smirked.
He smiled again, "So, if you knew who I was, why didn't you bring it up at all?"
Please tell me he did not just bring his ego into this conversation.
"I didn't know who you were actually until my sister showed me the picture of you on twitter. And that's when I realized I'd met you."
"So, you saw the picture of me..." His voice trailed off.
"Yes. Of you pissing in a fire." I tried to hide my smile but epically failed.
"Ha oh god." His face turned red and he looked down.
"So. Are you a fan?" He asked.
"Not exactly.." Now my voice was trailing.
"Oh." His expression changed from happy to wondrous.
"Well I just, um, I , uh, guess I like never gave your guys music a chance or something. I probably just thought it was naturally annoying since that's all my sister did was talk about you guys." I tried to defend myself. "Oh, Gosh, that didn't come out right. I just practically called you guys annoying!"
"It's fine," Harry laughed at my obliviousness. "I don't like some of our songs either."
"Oh really?" I asked devilishly.
He smiled and laughed and I joined along.
"So, um, I was thinking," Harry started, "that we should, um ,if you wanted to of course, go do something later." he started gazing in my eyes again. I felt uncomfortable with this awkward eye contact and looked away.
"Oh, sorry Harry but I think I'm busy."
His face looked disappointed. "Oh. I see. Maybe another time then..."
"Yeah.. Maybe."
We sat there in silence awkwardly. A girl around Sarah's age recognized Harry and started bouncing up and down. She quickly walked over in our direction with a huge grin planted on her face.
"Sorry Harry, but can I have your autograph. I absolutely love you!!" The girl said.
"Oh sure, anything for an amazing fan." He put on his famous smile and looked at the girl. It looked like she was dying on the inside. I just continued to sit there awkwardly as she asked Harry about general questions about the tour.

Harry's POV

This young teenage girl came up to me and was asking questions about the band. I felt kinda bad for Clare because she was just sitting there awkwardly.
"Is this your girlfriend because you guys would be absolutely adorable together!" The girl squealed.
I saw Clare tense up a bit.
"No. He's not my boyfriend." She answered quickly.
"Yeah, we're just good friends. Right Clare?" She nodded and looked back at the girl.
"Oh, sorry." She said.
"It's completely fine." I replied, "But we've got to get going. Clare here has to meet up with her sister. Nice meeting you. Bye." The girl squealed again and ran back to her mom. Harry then looked at me, "Ready to go?"
"Uh, yeah." She mumbeled.
We got off the bench and started walking back to the music store. Once there, we saw Sarah sitting with the lads and Niall was trying to decide which amp to buy. Sarah was absolutely fascinated. Liam and Louis were here too from who knows where. As soon as Liam saw that I was with Clare, he glared at her. I gave Liam a look saying everything's okay. He must've received the message considering his gaze softened. Liam has always been protective over all of us.
"Sarah, you ready to go?" Clare asked.
"Of course I'm not. I hanging out with One Direction, can I stay here forever?" She begged. The guys and I laughed at her response, even tho is was obsessive, it was kinda funny.
"I'm thinking I'm getting this one." Niall declared and pointed it out to the store worker to check out.
"Looks like we're going too." Zayn said.
Sarah's eyes looked disappointed as we all got up to leave.
"I'll see ya around," I told Clare.
She did a slight nod and said her goodbyes as her and Sarah left the store.

Harry's POV ~in the car~
"So how'd it go with Sarah?" Niall asked as soon as we left the mall.
"Okay I guess."
"What do you mean?" Zayn asked. "How do you know her?"
"Well you see, she's the girl we told u about on the way over here." Liam explained.
"I didn't really pay attention considering my hair was soaked from having water poured all over it!" Zayn glared at Louis. Louis smirked and started cracking up.
"Hey, ya gotta admit that a bucket of water is the best alarm clock ever!" Louis exclaimed.
Zayn shook his head and tried to fix his hair again.
"So you ask her out yet?" Niall asked.
"What do you mean?" I asked him nervously.
"We'll it's kinda obvious." Niall said.
"What is?"
"That you loovvveeee her!" Louis sing-songed.
"Do not!" I retorted.
"Do too!" Louis yelled.
"I do not!"
"Don't fight the urge Harry!" Louis smirked.
I could feel my face heating up as all the guys laughed.
"Gosh, you guys fight like an old married couple!" Liam noticed.
"Well that's because we are married!" Louis explained.
"Yes indeed!" I added and rested my head on Louis' shoulder. Maybe this is why our fan base calls us 'Larry Stylinson.' I silently chuckled to myself.
"So when you guys going out?" Zayn asked.
"The thing is, we're not." I answered.
"What? You too chicken to ask her out?" Niall teased.
"No!" I argued.
"Then what?" Liam asked.
"She just said no, that's all."
"Oh..." Niall said awkwardly.
Thankfully we were 2 minutes away from home. Most awkward 2 minutes in my life. We parked the car and as everybody got out, I noticed Clare just entering her house.
