6. When Harry Met Mollie

I wish I could say the day me and Molly met was the best day of my life; that it was romantic and perfect, like it is in all the films. But in reality, the whole thing was actually kind of embarrassing.

It was back in 2010. We’d only just come off the X-factor, and although we weren’t as famous as we are now, we already had quite a big following, so I usually got recognised whenever I went. I remember, I’d gone home to Holmes Chapel for the Christmas holiday, and I’d been out shopping in Morrison’s when she'd approached me.

"Excuse me..." She began,
"Yeah" I answered turning around to see a girl standing behind me with a note book and pen in her hand; I assumed she was going to ask me for an autograph.
"Would you mind..."
"Signing your notebook?" I guessed, "Yeah. Sure..."
I took the note book and pen from her hands,
"Who shall I make it out too?"
"Err...Actually...I was going to ask if you'd mind reaching up there for me" She explained, pointing to a jar of coffee on the top shelf, "I can't quite reach it myself.”
"Oh.” I said, blushing; I was embarrassed. “I’m sorry I…I just thought…well when you had the notebook in your hand…”

“It’s my shopping list.” She told me.

“Yeah, I can see that now.”

She laughed as I handing her the notebook and pen back and then reached for the jar of coffee for her. “Here you go.”

"Thanks" She smiled, taking the jar and putting in to her shopping basket. “I’m Mollie by the way.”

“Harry.” I replied.

“Wait…Harry, as in, Harry Styles.”

I nodded.

“I thought I recognised you. You’re from that boy band that was on the X-Factor. One Direction, right?”

“Yeah, that’s us.”

“Well that explains why you thought I wanted an autograph. I bet you have lots of girls coming up to you asking them to sign their notebooks.”

“Err…Sometimes.” I replied, trying not to sound bigheaded or anything.

 “Well…It was nice meeting you Harry. I hope you have a nice Christmas.”

“Yeah, You too.”

“Maybe I’ll see you around sometime.”

“Oh. Yeah, definitely.”

“Ok. Well…Bye.”


And with that she walked away. I thought no more about it until a couple of weeks after Christmas when I was on a night out with the lads.

The five of us had gone to a club in London. Technically, Louis was the only one who was legally old enough to drink at the time and therefore the only one old enough to be allowed in to the club, but somehow we all managed to get in. (I think it was because we were with a big group of people who were all over 18, so the bouncer on the door didn’t bother to ID us)

Anyway, we were sitting at the bar having a drink and the lads were talking to me but I wasn’t really listening; I’d seen this beautiful girl dancing with her friends and I couldn’t take my eyes off her.

“Hey, Harry!” Louis exclaimed, snapping his fingers and waving his hand in front of my eyes to get my attention. “Are you with us mate?”

“What?” I asked, suddenly snapping out of my daze. “Sorry, I didn’t hear that. What did you say?”

Louis rolled his eyes.

“Are you going deaf or something, I said, are you with us?” He repeated,

“Oh…Yeah. Sorry…I must have zoned out for a minute there.”

 “What’s up with you, tonight? You’ve been distracted from the moment we got here.” Niall pointed out.

“Oh I err…I just…” My eyes wandered again, as they followed the girl who was now leaving the dance floor and making her way to the bar.

“Have you got a thing for her or something?” Zayn asked,

“A thing for who?”

“That girl over there. You’ve been staring at her all night!”

“Oh. Err…Have I?” I blushed.

“Yeah. Do you fancy her?”


“Harry!” A female voice called, walking up to me. I turned around to realize that it was her. The girl I’d been admiring. As she got closer, it dawned on me who she was, and why I recognized her.

“Mollie? What are you doing here?”

“I don’t live in Morrison’s, you know. I do go to other places.”

“I know, what I meant was. What are you doing in London?”

“Oh, I live in London. I was only in Holmes Chapel to spend Christmas with my boyfriend.”

“You’ve got a boyfriend?” Inquired, a little disappointment.

“Not anymore. We broke up on boxing day.”

“Oh…I’m sorry.”

“Don’t be. He was a dickhead anyway. I’m better off without him,” Mollie proclaimed, “Anyway. I take it these are your bandmates.”

“Yeah. This is Louis, Niall, Zayn and Liam.” I announced, pointing them out.

“It’s nice to meet you guys.” She told them, “I saw you all on the X-Factor. You’re really talented.”

“Thank-you.” Liam smiled.

“Lad’s, this is Mollie. We met in a supermarket in Holmes chapel, around Christmas time.”

“Hi Mollie” They all greeted,

“Hi…” She said, “Well I’d better get back to my girlfriends. It was good to see you again Harry.”

“Yeah. You too…”

“Oh, before I forget.” She began handing me a slip of paper. “Here’s my number. Give me a call sometime, if you feel like getting together. You know, for a drink or something. That is, if you’re not too busy with the whole, pop-star thing.” She smiled. And then walked away to go and rejoin her friends. Call me Maybe, wasn’t out at that time, but if it had of been, that song would have fitted the moment perfectly.

“OOOh! Looks like Harry’s pulled!” Louis joked.

“Shut up!” I laughed,

“So…Are you gonna call?” Niall asked,

“I don’t know. Maybe…”                                                                                                   

“She was really into you.”Liam pointed out,

“Do you think?”

“Yeah. 100%! You could tell by the way she looked at you. And you’re obviously in to her. You couldn’t take your eyes off her when she was up there dancing with her friends.”

“She is pretty hot!” I admitted, taking another look at her, “But what about the band? I thought we said that we didn’t have time for relationships right now because we were too busy with our careers and everything.”

“Oh don’t worry about that. Just go for it mate!” Louis advised me.

“And you never know.” Zayn added, “She could be the one.”

And he was right.
