Can't Buy Me Love


3. Love At First Sight?


Harry's POV

When Paul enters with Brooke, my attention falls directly on her. I never expected her to be this breathtakingly  beautiful. I mean, I knew Paul would get someone good for me, but I never thought he would get a girl like this. Her hair is perfect, her clothes are perfect, she is perfect. 

I feel someone jab my side. "If she wasn't already hired to be your girlfriend, I'd hire her to be mine. Actually, she could do it for free," Niall says, adding a huge grin and a wink. I silently laugh.

 "Lads, meet Brooke. Brooke, meet Harry, Niall, Louis, Zayn, and Liam," Paul introduces us to each other.

Brooke steps closer and gives a quick wave. By her body language, I can tell she's a little nervous.

I step forward and shake her hand. "Nice to meet you Brooke."

"Now Harry! That isn't the proper way to show affection to your girlfriend," Louis shouts.

I look at Brooke who is a little shorter than me. Using her hand that I still hold, I pull her in and give her a tight hug.

"Attaboy Harry," Niall says.

"Kids, save it for the public. But just keep in mind, that it the kind of stuff we need," Paul adds. "I'm going to get your first date set up. But in the meantime, why don't you two get to know each other?" Paul winks and leaves.

I look at Brooke, whose cheeks are flushed, then to the boys. They all sit back on the couch, laughing about something.

"Why don't we go over here," I suggest.

"Sure," Brooke says with bated breath.

I take her hand and lead her to a cushiony seat. I sit in the one in front of her.

"So," I begin our conversation. "Tell me a little bit about yourself."

"Like what?" She asks.

"Anything. Your favorite things, your life. Tell me anything. After all, I do need to know these things if you're my girlfriend," I try to lighten the mood.

"You're right," she giggles. "Well, I am an only child and I live with my mom. Her and my dad got a divorce when I was little. I stay with him on occasion."

"My parents are divorced too," I add, trying to make Brooke feel better. She smiles and continues.

"I don't really have any friends at school. I'm considered the nerd. It doesn't bother me that much though."

"What are your parents names?" I ask.

"Saundra and Todd."

"I'll have to meet them sometime," I smile.

"Yeah, that would be nice," she smiles back.

"Tell me some of your favorite things."

"My favorite food is anything Italian. I absolutely love it," she gushes.

"I like Italian too," I say, glad that we have something in common. "What's your favorite movie?"

"That's a hard question. I like comedies and romantic comedies, buy my favorite right now is probably Pitch Perfect."

"My favorite movie is Love Actually. I'm a sucker for a romance," I laugh.

"Hey Harry! Why don't you quit hogging Brooke! We want to talk to her too!" Louis yells from across the room.

"Sorry Louis! We're coming," I yell back. I look back to Brooke. "I guess we'll continue this conversation later."

She smiles and we go back over to the boys.

"Did you two have a nice time together?" Liam asks when we get closer.

"We did actually. I learned a couple of things about her," I tell the boys.

"That's wonderful," Louis sings.

"What did you want with us?" I ask.

"Louis wanted to play a game," Zayn says.

"What kind of game?" I ask.

"Why, truth or dare of course!" Louis shouts.

"Why do you always want to play that?" Liam asks him.

"Because, it is magnificent."

Liam rolls his eyes and I hear Niall chuckle in the background.

"Ladies first!" Louis says, pointing to Brooke.

Her blue eyes widen just a bit. "Oh, I wouldn't want to intrude on your fun."

"Nonsense, we'd love for you to play."

"Ok then, uh. Louis, truth or dare?"

"Dare!" He shoots up from his seat.

Brooke pauses for a moment. I can see that she is unable to think of anything good.

"Is it alright if I help her?" I ask Louis.

"I'll allow it," he crosses his arms. 

I lean over and whisper a dare in Brooke's ear. She smiles.

"I dare you to turn your shirt inside out and wear it like that for the rest of the game."

"With pleasure, my dear," Louis says and does the dare. His red striped shirt is now inside out.

"Tis my turn now," Louis bows. "Harry, my boy, truth or dare?"

"Truth," I say, avoiding any awful things Louis would make me do.

"Tell us your first impression of Brooke," he smiles widely. Even though I didn't pick dare, he still got me.

"Well," I sigh. "I thought she was beautiful."

I look at Brooke and see her blush. "A very pretty girl who, I couldn't believe, Paul found."

"Awww, what a nice thing to say," Louis says.

"Everything is good to go!" Paul says, coming back to join us. He looks up from his papers. "Uh Louis? Why is your shirt on inside out?"

"It's a long story," Niall says.

We all begin to laugh and I see a look of confusion wash over Paul's face.
