12. Your Superman

Harry's POV

"Um, the vans are gone." Louis changed the subject. "I think it's safe to drive home now."
"Uh, you sure?" Liam asked.
"Yeah," Clare confirmed.
What did Zayn mean by Clare's and I's friendship is inbetween? We're are just friends. Clare has made that perfectly clear to me.I looked to the front of the car and stole another glance at her. She was smiling at something Liam said then she reached for his arm and put her hand on it. Wait, does she like Liam?
"Harry?" Louis said.
"I've been trying to get your attention for like ever, but apparently you were being occupied by something." He chuckled and obviously looked at Clare.
"Or someone," Niall winked at Harry.
"Shut up guys." I whispered at them. It's a good thing that Clare's attention was still on Liam.
"Does she know you fancy her?" Louis whispered as he turned around once more to face me.
"I'm not sure." I responded.
All of a sudden Clare's voice was heard, "Oh, she knows." she called out.
I felt my face turn red.
"You guys suck at whispering." She turned around in her seat to face us.
I looked down, trying to hide my red face.
"Awww, somebody's blushing!" Niall gushed.
"Shut up, Niall." I warned.
"See, this is exactly what I mean by inbetween." Zayn added.
"What do you mean?" Clare asked.
"How you guys seem like you're together, but you're not." Zayn answered awkwardly.
"But we're not together. We're just bestest friends, even check twitter to confirm it." I interrupted. I looked over at Clare who was looking at me already. We made eye contact and she smiled.
"Yes, we are." Clare said. "And Louis is jealous."
"Well of course Im jealous! You stole my best friend!!" Louis yelled pathetically and started to fake whimper.
"Cut it out, Lou." Liam warned.
"Sorry, Liam. I forgot you were allergic to fun!" Louis said.
There were a couple of 'Oooooh's' that were murmered. Liam glared at Lou through his review mirror.

Clares POV
I saw Liam glare at Louis through his mirror.
"Take that back right now Lou." Liam warned.
"Or what?" Louis challenged.
Just then, Liam stepped on the brakes, real hard. Louis went flying into the back of the seat in front of him. Everyone else had seat belts on, so Louis was the only one who jerked forward.
"Hey! That hurt" Louis whined.
"Good, so we even now?" Liam turned in his seat and asked Louis.
"Yeah, we're good!" They started laughing and Liam turned back around to continue the drive home. Wow. I wish girls got over arguments as fast as guys did. I envied the way they got over everything so quickly. I guess I was deep in thought about it because someone nudged my arm. It was Liam.
"Hey, you ok?" He asked.
"Yeah, completely fine. Just thinking, that's all."
"What about?"
"it's not important." I responded.
"Oh, okay."
I looked in the review mirror and noticed that Harry was staring at me. Why does he always do this? I turned around to face the guys.
"So what's the plan for today?" I asked.
They all looked at each other.
We were currently driving through a town right outside of Beverly Hills that we had to go through in order to reach our homes. I looked out the window, there was a large festival going on it looked like. There was a Ferris wheel, bumper cars, and many games.
"Hey, guys look!" i said and looked out the window.
"Let's go!" Louis exclaimed.
"Sure, I always love a good game." Liam said as he tried to find a parking spot.
"Gosh, American's really suck at parking."
"Uh, excuse me." I countered him.
"It's true. Everyone takes up 2 spaces!!"
"That's because they care too much about their cars..." I mumbled.
"Right there," Niall pointed out and Liam turned to park the car.
"Thanks, lad."
I unbuckled my seat belt and took my hair out of my braid. My wavy hair fell to my back and I got out of the car. I waited for the guys to get out but they were still in the car. What the heck can be taking them so lone? I opened up the car and popped my head in.
"Why the heck are you taking so long?" I asked.
They all either had hats or sunglasses on.
"It's called making sure no one notices us." Zayn said matter of factly.
"Yeah, like superman, but more adorable." Louis said and smiled cheekily.
"Ohh, I see. So you guys are all secret superheros?" I said sarcastically.
"Only for you." Harry winked.
"Oh my lord, the Harry Styles is my superman!" I pretended to fangirl.
Everyone started laughing.
"Hey, you know you're secretly overjoyed." Harry laughed.
"Oh, definitely!" I laughed. They started to get out of the large car now. We walked to the sidewalk and made our way to the front area where we buy tickets.
"Six please." Harry went up to the window and took out his wallet. The older woman nodded and handed him the tickets.
We walked in successfully without anyone noticing the boys. Just then, I realized I had to pee.
"Uh, I'm going to go find a bathroom." I informed them. "You just wanna meet me by the Ferris wheel?"
"Sure," They said.
I went off and tried to find the bathroom. This place was packed. I had the weird feeling that people were staring at me. Why does this always happen to me? Do I look weird or something today? I found a sign that pointed to the bathrooms so I followed them. Down the row of food stands I found a door that leads to an indoor bathrom. Yes, luckily no port-a-potty. Ew. Those gross me out big time. Great.. There's a line. Just my luck. I stopped at the end. There were 4 other people infront of me, two being girls around Sarah's age. They were giving me dirty looks. I chose to ignore them.
"Excuse me, is your name Clare?" One of them asked. She had blonde hair in a pony tail and was wearing jean booty shorts and a tee shirt.
I looked up from hearing my name. "Uh, yeah."
"Like the Clare?" The other asked. She was dressed similar but had dark brown hair.
"It depends on what you mean by the Clare," I responded
The blondy stared at me with a crinkled nose. "She sooo doesn't deserve Harry." She whispered to her friend.
"You know I can hear you, right? And by the way, Harry and I are very happy together. And if you don't mind, I'd love it if you'd stop talking about me." I snapped at them in a mean tone. Their jaws dropped. "Oh, and two stalls opened up. Nice talking to you." They glared at me and went to their stalls.
Gosh, I'm so sick of people talking about me. Wait, did I just tell them that Harry and I were together? Who cares, anything to get them to shut up. A stall opened up and I went to relieve myself.
"So they are dating?" I heard one of the girls say.
"I knew it! I don't get why they keep lying about their relationship to everyone." The other responded. I finished, flushed and walked out of the bathroom before they left their stalls.
I finally understand what the guys were saying. I was in the middle of the rumor mill with Harry right besides me. Now to find the boys. I made my way down the food isle to meet them at the Ferris wheel. More stares. I really just wanna flip them all off right now, but I don't wanna make the boys look bad. The Ferris wheel was just ahead and there was a huge crowd. I didn't know the Ferris wheel was this popular. As I got closer, I realized the ride wasn't the attraction, it was 4 British guys and 1 that was Irish, otherwise known as one direction, the guys I came here with. I tried to make my way towards them, but I couldn't. The crowd was huge. People were everywhere. More stares and I heard a couple people mutter my name. People started to let me through and I can finally see their heads clearly. Louis spotted me while we was taking a picture with a fan. As soon as the camera flashed, he dropped his smile and ran to me.
"Clarebear!!" He ran up to me and gave me a bear hug. I laughed and hugged him back. We let go and went over to the rest of the guys.
"Okay, everyone, we have to go now." Liam announced. The large crowd let out a loud 'aww' And I even saw a couple girls crying. Wow, this fandom is larger than I thought.
I scooted closer to Harry as Liam was apologizing to his fans. "I need to talk to you," I whispered.
His face looked a little worried. "Oh, okay? What is it?"
"Well in the bathroom, these girls were glaring at me and then I heard them say that you were too good for me so I snapped at them and said that we were very happy together and to stop talking about me then I yelled at them to go pee since stalls were open and they looked shocked and well yeah." I didn't look up, nervous of his response.
He didn't say anything, he just laughed, and laughed.
"You what? Yelled at girls to go pee?" He for some reason found that hilarious. We were still standing in the same spot and fans were still staring because they haven't went back to their normal lives yet.
"Coming from some guy who peed in a fire!" I yelled back,
"Wait, you saw that?" He looked somewhat embarrassed.
"Yeah, but nevermind. I also told the girls that we were together." I mumbled.
"Oh, haha I know. You already said said that." He chuckled.
"So you're not mad?" I asked, finally looking up. He smiled at me and put his arm around my waist.
"Of coarse I'm not mad, you just realized that I'm your superman." He winked and had a smirk on his face. I saw a camera flash out of the corner of my eye, but I ignored it. "What are you doing?" I asked, "People are watching, they're gonna think we are together."
He moved his arm from my back to around my shoulders now. "Well, you told someone that we were together and now it's my turn."
"What are you talking about Mr. Styles?"
"I think it would be fun if we were to pretend for a bit, you know, keep the fans wondering," he smiled.
"What's in it for me?" I asked.
"You get to spend the day with the one and only Harry Styles." He smirked.
I laughed because he was such an idiot. "Are you kidding me?"
"No, come on, it'll be fun. Acting all gushy as a joke, haven't you always wanted to do that?"
I thought about it, maybe people will stop talking about me negatively. Well, it can't hurt.
"Fine, just today though, and we tell no one that we are together, just let people assume things."
"Perfect!" He said with a cheeky grin. "Hey guys, I'm taking Clare on the Ferris wheel. Don't wait around, we will catch up with you later!" He called out. We walked towards the ride together as I heard a couple ''awwww's'' I just laughed to myself. Harry must've heard because he smiled at me. I noticed that he wasn't wearing the beanie anymore that he wore here. He was still wearing his aviators though. His perfect curls were bouncing as he walked. Our eyes locked as we continued walking to the ride. I lost myself in those bright green eyes of his. I felt my foot trip on something but continues to walk, keeping contact with him. I caught myself and then knocked right into something hard. I felt my weight tip forward as I lost my balance and fell. I tripped to the ground.
I opened my eyes and saw Harry hovering over me. I tried to sit up but immediately felt dizzy. Harry kneeled down next to me and supported my back. I noticed people starting to crowd around us and take pictures.
"Clare, we need to get you on your feet." Harry toke me.
"I, I cant." My head continued to spin.
He grabbed my hands and gently pulled me up. Once on my feet, I started swaying from side to side. He grabbed my waist to help me walk. We made our way over to a bench right in front of the Ferris wheel.
"Can't you just give us some privacy?" Harry somewhat yelled at the people watching us and having their cameras pointed at us. They put their phones away and slowly started walking away from us.
"Thanks," I said as he sat down next to me on the bench, "I'm just tired of all this attention lately."
My dizziness was slowing down and I could finally see straight.
"What happen?" I asked.
"Well, you were staring at how amazing I look and then your foot tripped on a loose brick in the sidewalk. You kept on walking and then you lost your balance and face planted into the sidewalk."
I reached up to brush my loose hair out of my face.
"Ow!" i squealed. My hand brushed up against a large bump on my head.
"What happened?" Harry looked concerned.
"I guess I hit my head."
"Oh, are you ok?" He looked me in the eyes and they sparkled an amazing green.
Before I can answer Harry's phone started to ring.

Harry's POV
"Oh, are you ok?" I asked Clare, staring directly into her eyes. She looked like she was going to pass out any second. I felt my phone starting to vibrate and then my ring tone started playing. I reached for my phone and answered it, it was Niall.
"Harry, where are you? Is Clare all right?" He asked frantically.
"In front of the Ferris wheel, like directly in front of it, not down the aisle like we were. And shes fine. Wait, how do you know? What's going on?"
"Your all over twitter." He said quickly. "Just stay there, we're coming."
"What this time?"
"A video of you helping Clare up for some reason and then you yelling at the crowd. What happened to her?" Niall asked.
"She's fine, I'l explain later." I said. I saw their heads a little down the way so I just hung up on him.
"What happened?" Clare asked.
"Nothing, we'll talk about it later." I didn't want to bother her about it right now.
"Look, everyone else is coming." She observed.
I turned around as they cam rushing over here, looking worried.
"Clare, you ok?" Liam asked.
"Yeah, I'm perfectly fine"
"what happened." Zayn asked.
"I apparently fell and blacked out for a bit." She said.
"How'd you fall?" Zayn asked again.
"She was lost in my eyes." I smirked.
"Well, he is my superman." Clare smiled and winked.
"He was mine first and always will be!" Louis exclaimed.
"No, Louis, Harry is mine. And he will always be until forever runs out!" Clare responded.
"Aw, Clare I feel the same way!" I gushed. We started laughing again.
"Hey, guys, keep the mushy stuff to yourself unless you want to be publicized again." Liam laughed.
"I'm sorry guys," Clare said seriously, interrupting the laughter, "but im not feeling too swell."
"What do you want to do?" Niall asked her.
"Is it ok if we just go home? I'm sorry, but my head is spinning." She admitted.
"Don't apologize, it's ok." I said.
"Yeah, completely fine. It's getting lateish anyways." Zayn commented.
"Yeah, I'm gonna need dinner soon." Niall said.
"Gosh, I don't get how you eat so much1" Clare laughed.
"Trust me, you get used to it." Liam said with a straight face. Niall had a satisfied look on his face. And with that, we all headed down the aisles to the exit. Clare started swaying while she walked. I put my arm around her to keep her steady. She wrapped her arm around my back, clinging so she wouldn't topple over. It's cute the way she's nuzzled into my side.
"You sure your ok?" I asked her.
"I'll be fine." She assured me. I believed her, she's gotten through a lot. We crossed the aisle with all the food stands. Niall was eyeing up all the food signs, practically drooling. Clare seemed to notice too because she quietly giggled to herself. I wish she'd just give me a chance, but I guess not. We finally got to the exit, Clare still not being able to walk by herself without swaying. My arm was still draped around her back as I lead her to the car.
"So, how'd you enjoy your short day out with your personal superhero?" I asked, trying to spark conversation.
"Well, the day's not over yet!" She laughed and went to the car. I could hear the guys mumble our names from behind, but I ignored them.
I opened the front passenger seat for her and waited for her to get settled in before I shut the door. I felt a smile creep across my cheeks as I thought about her. I opened up my door and Zayn was staring at me from the inside of the car. He laughed and winked and then shrugged towards Clare who was talking to Liam in the front.
"Shut up." I whispered as I climbed in the way back.
Niall and Louis climbed in after me. Liam started the car and we left the festival. I looked up at Clare and her head was lain back against her seat.
Liam turned the radio on and, once again, another One Direction song way on, it was Last First Kiss.
"Uhhg, can you turn it down or something? I hear us enough as it is." Louis grunted.
"But Lou, you start this song." Zayn said.
"So?" Louis said loudly.
"Guys, hush up, I think Clare's sleeping." Liam informed.
"Sorry," Louis whispered.
"When can we eat? It's like 5:30." Niall complained.
"How about we eat at home?" I suggested.
"Fine," Niall's stomach rumbled.
"Ha, i guess you really are hungry." Zayn laughed.
"Wait, Niall what happened on twitter again with us" I asked.
He took out his phone and opened twitter. "It's everywhere." He handed his phone over to me and looked at the screen. It was a video of me helping Clare up off the ground, her clinging on to me and I lead her to the bench. Then I turned to the crowd and yelled at them to leave us alone. I looked mean. The caption underneath read 'Harry Styles defends his special friend.' I closed the video and kept on scrolling thought the feed. Like everything was about Clare and I. There were pictures of her leaning in to me and whispering, pictures of me with my arm around her back before she fell, even pictures of us walking down the food aisle 10 minutes ago. This is crazy. Even people reposted the picture that I posted of us at the Hollywood sign. There were comments everywhere asking if we were official. Trust me, it would be if it was my choice. Never mind about Clare, I just wanna be out of all these rumors.

Clare's POV
As soon as Liam started the car, I closed my eyes to try to relax my head. Gosh, these boys are so loud!
"Guys, hush up, I think Clare's sleeping." Liam said.
Thank you, Liam, maybe it might be quiet.
"Wait," I heard Harry's deep voice, "Niall, what happened on twitter again with us?"
What? What's going on? Us? There's more? I decided to keep my mouth shut and continue to let them think that I was sleeping.
"It's everywhere." Niall answered.
There was a long pause.
"I can't believe they posted this." Harry said.
Posted what?
"I know, it's like they have no respect to privacy. This is just like what happened when Perrie and I started dating." Zayn acknowledged.
"But Clare and I aren't dating."
"Yet!" Louis chuckled.
Harry didnt say anything.
"Why so quiet Harry?" Liam asked.
"Can we just not talk about it here." Harry seemed frustrated.
"It's ok, she's sleeping Harry, remember?" Niall said.
"You never know." Harry responded.
I felt Liam jerk the car to the right, and slowing to a stop. Someone nudged my arm. "Clare, wake up." Liam said. "We're back."
I faked a tired grunt and tossed a little and then fluttered my eyes open.
"Huh?" i pretended to be confused and I lifted my head off the seat.
"We're back home." He repeated.
I nodded and unbuckled my seatbelt. I opened my door and got out of the car.
"You staying for a bit or going back home?" Zayn asked as I stood up. I felt myself sway a bit as my head was getting dizzy again.
"Um, is it ok if I just stay for a bit? I really dont wanna be home." I confessed and tried to walk but i kept on sway from side to side.
"Here let me help you." Harry came by my side and led me to the door, "And stay as long as you want."
I smiled and walked inside, clinging onto Harry. This boy is so adorable. Stop Clare, last time you thought about Harry in this way, you fell on your head. Ooh look, theres a bird. There ya go, good distraction. I like birds. Who am I kidding, I think Im going insane. I'm trying to distract myself from Harry. Luckily, we got inside and I plopped myself on the couch.
"What do we got to eat?" Niall yelled to everyone.
"Who knows, search the fridge!" Zayn yelled back.
"I'm going upstairs for a bit, El texted me asking to skype." Louis told everyone and ran upstairs.
Liam came and sat on the chair next to the couch.
"Who's El?" I asked Liam.
"Oh, Eleanor is Louis' girlfriend." He looked surprised that I didn't know that.
"Oh, okay. Why are you looking at me like I'm insane?" I laughed.
He smiled, "Oh, it's just that everyone knows who Eleanor is and I was just surprised you didn't." he responded casually.
"Oh," i said nonchalantly, "I wasn't really considered a fan before I met you guys."
"Ahh, makes sense now." He replied and smiled at me. "But you are now, right?"
"Of course I am!" I excitedly responded.
"Good!" he winked.
I laughed to myself as I smelt something very good linger through.
"What smells so good?" I asked.
Zayn just then walked in the room that we were in. "Harry's making dinner if you guys want some."
"Harry can cook?" I asked, obviously surprised.
"Yeah, he's like the best." Zayn answered.
"What's he making?" Liam asked.
"Niall wanted pasta, so I guess that." Zayn shrugged his shoulders, "Im going upstairs if you need me."
We nodded and turned the tv on. It was an interviewer that was popular in the US. His name was Robby Brown. He looked to be in his thiries and had styled brown hair. Josh Hutcherson was on his show right now talking about the upcoming Hunger Games movie.
"Oh, I love Josh." I exclaimed.
"Him?" Liam laughed.
"Yeah! You don't like him?" I eyed him up.
"I guess I just never have seen any of his movies."
"Are you kidding me?!" I laughed, "You havent lived."
I turned my attention back to the screen and Josh was laughing along with Robby about something I didn't hear.
"I guess I'll give him a chance." Liam decided and chuckeled.
We turned our attention back to the tv and Robby opened his mouth to speak, "Thank you Josh for being on our show and I wish you the best of luck with your upcoming productions!" He said to Josh Hutcherson and then turned his face to the camera, "And please join us next week where we will have the one and only One Direction! They'll be talking about their upcoming tour and may be performing a song! So, tune in to find out!" Applause was heard from the audience and the show ended and commercials were shown.
What did he just say? One Direction was going on the show? Awesome! I looked over at Liam who looked utterly confused.
"Whats wrong, Liam." I asked.
"As far as I know, we weren't scheduled for an interview."
He still looked confused and pulled out his phone and dialed a number.

Liam's POV

"They'll be talking about their upcoming tour and may be performing a song! So, tune in to find out!" Robby Brown said from the tv.
Wait, us? What are they talking about? This is supposed to be our break.
"Whats wrong, Liam?" Clare asked, obviously sensing my confusion.
"As far as I know, we weren't scheduled for an interview." I answered her as I pulled out my phone and dialed management.
"Hey Liam." a voice on the other line answered.
"Uh, yeah, I've got a question. How come Robby Brown said that we were going to be on his show next week?" I asked.
"Oh, yeah, I've been meaning to call you guys. 1D is scheduled for an interview on Tuesday."
"That's in 3 days." I interrupted angrily.
"Yes, I realize that, and I know this is supposed to be your time off, but they called with an opening and we've been trying to get on that show since WMYB came out here. He's like the most watched."
"We don't need any more publicity, haven't you seen twitter or any gossip show? Harry is all over it!" I said in annoyance.
"About that, what's going on with him and that girl?" He asked.
"That girl's name is Clare and to be honest, no one really knows, not even Harry." I admitted. Clare's head perked up from hearing her name, she looked at me in confusion.
"Well, it's good. Tell them to keep the fans wondering."
"They're doing that naturally," I laughed.
"Yeah, well I'm getting another call, I'll give Paul the information for the interview and he'll be there Tuesday morning for you lads." Our manager said and hung up the phone. I ended the call also and stood up to head for the kitchen. Clare got up and followed me.
"Dinner's almost done, Clare wanna grab everyone?" Harry said.
"Sounds good." I said and turned to walk towards the stairs. I haven't even been through this whole house yet, just the lower level and it was huge.
I made my way up the stairs I heard laughing coming from the nearest room, the door was wide open so I walked in. Louis was sitting on his bed talking to his computer.
"Hey, Louis," I knocked on the door before I walked over to him. "Dinner is done, come downstairs."
He looked up, "Hey Clare, come here! I want you to meet Eleanor." I walked over to his bed and sat down right next to him.
"Oh, your Clare, I recognize you from the photos on twitter. I'm Eleanor," She said from the screen. She smiled and waved at me. She was beautiful, and seemed nice. No wonder Louis fell for her.
"Hey," I returned the smile, "How are you?"
"Better now, I've really missed the guys." She looked at Louis and Louis looked back at her. The way they stared in each other's eyes was adorable.
"Well, I'll call you later, El. I gotta go downstairs." He apologized.
"It's ok, Lou." El said, "Love you Boo Bear!"
"You too!" He smiled deeply and turned off skype.
"She seems amazing." I told Louis.
"She really is," he gushed.
"Awwww, you guys are so cute! Come on, we need to go get Zayn."
He lead the way out of the room and went across to Zayn's. His hair was wet, he must've just gotten out of the shower.
"I don't think I've ever seen your hair not spiked up." I smirked.
"Don't make fun." He said with a smirk.
"Hey, it looks good!" I laughed, "You should wear your hair like that more often."
"Dinners ready, let's go." Louis interrupted and ran out the door. We followed him and Louis jumped on the banister and slid down it on his butt.
"You are one wild child!" I laughed as Zayn and I walked down the stairs normally.
We met all the boys in the kitchen and around the large circular table in the middle of the dining room was 6 plates on spaghetti with a red sauce on it piled with meatballs. Niall was already seated and I went and sat down next to him. Harry came and sat down next to me and then Louis, Zayn, and then Liam sat down to close the gap. We stared digging in, Niall was getting sauce everywhere. I took a bite of my food. This is like the best pasta I've ever eaten.
"Harry, this is amazing." I continued to dig in.
"Thanks, Clare." He smiled and I returned it.
"So, lads," Liam started. "I have to inform you about something."
"What is it?" Niall asked with a mouthful of noodles.
"We're going to be on Robby Brown on Tuesday."
"What's Robby Brown?" Zayn asked.
"He's a big interviewer in the states." Harry answered.
"Yeah, and apparently we're gonna be on the show." Liam repeated.
"I thought this was our break," Louis whined.
"I know, that's what I said but management said that they've been trying to get us on the show since WMYB came out." Liam informed.
"Oh, so is this the only one we have to do?" Niall asked.
"Yeah, I'd assume so."
"Good, I dont want anymore publicity anyways." Harry added.
"Oh, he also brought up you and Clare." Liam said.
"Is that why you said that girl's name is Clare?" I asked.
"What he say about us?" Harry asked, kinda worriedly.
"He just wanted to know what was going on," Liam replied.
"I think we'd all like to know too," Louis mumbled loudly enough for us to hear. There was an awkward silence, I looked at my food, not knowing what to say. I glanced over at Harry, he was awkwardly playing with his food. I could sense him looking at me so I turned my head to glance at him. I gave him a half smile then looked up from my food. Everyone was staring at Harry and I. I felt quite uncomfortable with all eyes on me.
"So, uh, yeah," Liam broke the silence, "He also said to keep the fan's wondering."
"It's not just the fans that are wondering," Louis said again, "Oops, did I just say that out loud?" he smirked.
"Yeah, you did Louis." Harry glared at him, "And I'd appreciate it if you'd stop the snarky comments." he snapped.
Niall did a little whistle and Louis looked sincerely sorry.
"Oh, yeah one more thing." Liam interrupted, "Paul's coming Tuesday morning."
"Yay!" Louis exclaimed.
"Why?" asked Zayn.
"Isnt is obvious? To apparently escort us and be there for security, like always." Niall answered.
I finished my food and so did Harry. He got up and took his plate and walked into the kitchen. I got up and followed him. He put his plate in the sink and huffed in a frustrated manor.
"Are you ok?" I asked.
"No, I'm not." He rinsed his plate in silence.
"What's going on?"
"Nothing." He turned off the water and made his way to the front room. I heard footsteps going up the stairs. I was annoyed and at the same time wanted to know what was wrong with him. I walked back into the dining room.
"Well, go talk to him." Zayn said as he saw me.
"You heard that?" I asked them sheepishly.
"Yeah, now go find him." Louis said and smiled.
"Third door on the left." Niall said.
I nodded and turned to head up the stairs. Third door on the left? Okay. I felt nervous as I ascended the stairs. I got to the top, slowly and quietly made my way to his room. I knocked. No answer. I knocked again. Still, no answer. I got annoyed so I just opened the door. I came in and saw him sitting on his bed, playing on his laptop. No wonder he couldn't hear me knock, his headphones are in his ears. His music was so load, I could faintly hear it. As soon as he saw me, he ripped one of his ear buds out of his ears. He stared at me for a second as I shut the door for some privacy.
"What?" He harshly said.
"Wow, I come up here to see if you're all right and you decide to snap at me? Great best friend you are," I smirked with a tone of angrily and crossed my arms.
"Look," he took out his other ear bud, "I just don't know what to do."
"To do about what?" I uncrossed my arms and sat next to him on his bed, my legs hanging over the side.
"It's nothing."
"How come I don't believe you?" I pressed. "Just tell me!"
"It's just..." He started but stopped.
"It's what?" I raised my voice, "Why can't you just tell me?"
"It's you!" He admitted.
"Me? What are you talking about?"
"Have you not seen every gossip page? Every tweet? We're even in magazines! Everything and everyone is asking what's going on between us and I can't give them an answer! Can you?" He started to tense up, I opened my mouth to speak, but nothing came out. "See," he continued, "You can't give an answer either. I'm just fed up about all of this! This relationship we have, if i can even call it a relationship because I have no clue what it is! But the thing is, I like you Clare. Can I tell you something?" He didn't give me any time to respond, "The first time I saw you on the side of that road, I fell for you. I couldn't get you out of my mind. But then when you told me to leave you alone, I felt crushed. Then when we were at the mall, and we started talking, I started to fall even harder, even though I knew you would never be interested. And then when you told me about Ellie, I was glad that you could trust me with such a big part of your life. And today, the way I caught you looking at me, I thought you would finally feel the same, but I guess not. You just keep denying it and I'm just confused.." He finally stopped babbling. He was looking down for most of the time when he was telling me how he felt. He finally looked up and we made eye contact, "Sorry."
"For what?"
"For yelling, for getting you in to this situation, for pouring my heart on you." My heart was beating. I didn't know what to say, so I didn't say anything.I can't believe that someone could feel this strongly about me. I looked over at him, he looked nervous to see what I would say. He was staring right into my eyes. I leaned right into him and kissed him. He was taken aback because he didn't kiss me back right away. But when he did, I felt something between us.
We pulled away after a moment, even though I didn't want it to end.
"What was that?" He asked me, seeming shocked.
"That," I paused, "Was a thank you."
He smiled and looked me in the eyes, "So where does this leave us?"
My smile dropped. I didn't know what to say. He must've noticed. "What's wrong?" He asked.
"I, uh," I looked into his deep eyes, "I want to take things slow, Harry."
His eyes dulled a bit. "Oh, okay, so just stay best friends?"
"Yes, if your okay with that." I answered.
"As long as I'll always be your superman." He winked, "And now that I know you like me, I at least know that I now have a chance." He said casually.
"Ha ha, your very funny." I smiled.
"Do you know what time it is?" I asked Harry.
He unlocked his phone, "Uh, almost 7:30."
"Ohkay, thanks."
"So what we gonna do?" He asked.
"I have an idea." I grabbed Harry's laptop from his bed and went to youtube.
"What in the world are you doing?" He asked in wonderment.
"Stalking you, what else." I said seriously.
"Why me?"
"Because I want to know the you that you fans know of course." I reached the search engine and typed in his name. The first thing that popped up was his audition video. I opened it and started watching, "Aww you were so cute!"
"I look the same then that I do now." He observed.
"Exactly." I smiled and he blushed. "Aww Harry is blushing!"
He sung and it was very good. The next video I clicked on was One Direction Dirty Moments. I was watching for a bit and then Harry popped up telling a story of when he was in spain and he bought fake boobs.
Harry looked embarrassed.
"Uh, Harry, Why would you buy those?" I laughed.
"As a joke! Louis and I found them hilarious but they fell into a river and a dog got them." He was cracking up while telling the story.
I put my attention back to the video and all the guys were on the screen. They were talking about boob sized they prefer.
"I would like medium sized." Louis said.
"For me, a big handful would be just fine." Harry said on the video while cupping his hand.
"Harry," I said to him, "Your hands are huge."
"Yes, and?" He smirked.
"That handful would be huge!" I laughed.
We continued to watch youtube videos on him and the boys for a long while. We were having fun laughing and making fun of each other.
"How about we type in your name!" Harry suggested but didn't wait for me to answer.
There were a couple videos that popped up, I wonder why. Harry clicked on the first one. Immediately a video of my family cheering for my dad at a football game came on. Then a reporter started talking. "Rumors are, that Richard Sampson was reported cheating on his wife with a cheerleader for the team he plays on, The Dallas Cowboys." Then a picture of my dad with that blonde skank showed up.
I quickly shut Harry's laptop. I felt my smile immediately fade.
"Clare, I'm so sorry. I had no idea that would come up."
"No, it's fine. Don't apologize, you didn't know."
Just then, my phone went off. It was a text from my mom.
Mom: I want you home, NOW.
"Uh, I have to go, it was my mom."
"Let me walk you home." He suggested.
"You really don't have to." I protested.
"I know, but I want to." He smiled.
"Okay, then shall we?" I pointed towards the door.
"Yes, we shall!" He led the way down the stairs and I followed him. The guys were all on the couch, watching a movie.
"I'm walking Clare home, I'll be back in a bit!" Harry called out to him.
We heard a couple moans telling us they understood. We walked to the back of the house in silence and then he opened the porch door for me that lead us to the deck. I walked down the stairs to the beach and waited for Harry to catch up.
"So, thanks for walking me home." I said, breaking the silence.
"Best first date ever, even though we spent it with the band." Harry smirked.
"Harry," I warned, "Today was not a date. But I've gotta admit, it was pretty fun!"
"You know it!" We laughed together. I felt like I could be myself around him, it was a great feeling. "So when is our first date?" he asked.
"Take it slow, Harry." I laughed.
"Fine.." he grumbled.
"knock off the sassiness!" I joked.
We got my portion of my part of the beach.
"Well, I better go now before my mom freaks." I said as we stopped in front of my house.
"Aww" He whined. I was about to walk away and then he grabbed my arm and pulled me towards him. He leaned in like he was going to kiss my lips. But, the last second, he moved his head and kissed my cheek. I could feel my face heating up.
"Slow enough for you?" He chuckeled.
"Very smooth, Mr Styles. Very smooth." I laughed, "But seriously, I got to go!" He waved goodbye to me and I smiled at him. I felt a stupid grin on my face as I walked to the deck.
