I'm In Love With A Total Stranger (Sequel to IILWMBF)

Jess and Harry have had a steady two year running relationship, but will the bumps in the road ahead be too big to avoid? Does Jess really know Harry, or is she in love with a total stranger?


26. Chapter 24

"Night baby girl." I said tucking Tallulah in bed. She gurgled a bit and then settled down. I walked over and turned on the baby monitor. "Shhh go to sleep now." I said and turned the little light on in the corner and closed the door so she wouldn't hear the people from our party chatting outside. I walked into the kitchen and Harry was sitting on the counter drinking a glass of wine, he looked tired and definitely not up for a raging house party.

"You okay, Haz?" I said walking over to him. He looked up from the patch on the table he had been staring at and attempted a weak smile.

"I'm...i'm fine." He said and frowned a bit and looked down at his wine. He chugged it back and got up from the side scraping his bar stool back nosily and put his wine glass in the sink.

"Harry?" I said walking after him.

"Can you leave me for a bit. I need some head space." He said. I stopped walking after him and frowned.

"Oh." I looked around the room, anywhere but his frustrated glare. "I'll..i'll just...i'll see you later then." I said walking to the lounge. I heard his defeated sigh as he shut the front door behind him. I slumped onto the sofa and closed my eyes, putting my head in my hands. What was wrong with that man? 

I decided not to sit and think about it and let it simmer. I got up and grabbed all the alcohol I bought for the party and placed it out on the table. People will be arriving in 10 minutes. Everything is set. I pulled out my phone and dialed Harry's number. It went straight to voice mail. Right, if he wants to be like that, then so be it.

Soon people filled the house and the music was loud and blasting out the flat. I hope the neighbours won't complain. Actually, without a doubt they will. They are old and complaining is just there forte. I squeezed past all the people, and I found Niall.

"Niall?!?!"I shouted over the music. He looked up at me and smiled.


"Can I talk to you?" 

"Yeah, one sec!" He shouted back. He jumped up from the sofa and ran over to the drinks table, grabbed a beer and then followed me to the bedroom. I began to feel light headed, I think I may have drunk a little to much. I went and sat down on the bed. Niall followed my lead and sat next to me.

"So...what's up?" He asked tilting his head to the side.

"Have you spoken to Harry at all today?" I said fiddling with my fingers. He flicked his blonde hair to the side sending a scent of his after shave he had put on. A tight feeling in my belly erupted and I widened my eyes. No...they're not butterflies. No. It's the alcohol I think. Yup definitely.

"Well, yeah we all did at our meeting." He said smiling down at me. I glanced down at his lips. Jess. Stop. What are you doing?

"Annnnd?" I asked, distracting myself from his luscious, se- Stop.

"Well, to be honest, i'm surprised your taking it so well." He said scratching the back of his neck. I kept looking down at his lips, wanting to feel their sweet moisture on my own lips and to be able to tangle my hands in his hai- No. Stop this.

"Taking what so well?" I said smiling and looking back up at his face.

"Well you know the tour dates and all." He said looking at suspiciously. His breath reached me and the smell of the alcohol was clear.

"No, I don't know the tour dates, why?" I asked sitting up.

"Maybe you should talk to Harry about it. Don't worry." He said pulling me in for a hug. I inhaled his beautiful scent, and began giggling.

"What's so funny?" He asked raising his eyebrows. 

"You're just..so beautiful." I said. Shit did I just really say that. I raised my hands to my mouth widening my eyes.

"I'm what?" He asked smirking.

"You're...you're..." I didn;t know what to say, but he just grinned at me. I glanced at his lips and leant in a bit. About to kiss him. Wait what? No. I pulled back quickly and a flash of hurt was shown upon Niall's face. 

"I'm sorry Niall.....I-I don't know why I did t-that." I said standing up quickly. I walked slowly back to the door. And then swung it open, rushing into the crowd of people desperate for some air. I ran down the flight of stairs towards the door of the block of flats. I heard someones calls behind me.

"Jess! Come back! Wait!" His Irish accent clung to my ears like a moth to a lamp. I ignored his calls and slammed the door behind me and stood into the dark cold air of London. The tears began to fall down my face as I closed my eyes. I'm so stupid. Niall and I are friends, I don't like him like that. I began to feel more sober and I knew straight away that I was so in the wrong. Harry can never find out. He won't, cause nothing happened, right?

A panting Niall appeared behind me. "Jess....I'm sorry...It was my fault too." He said getting his breath back. I turned back around to him.

"No Niall. You did nothing. Can you look after Lulu, i'm going to look for Harry." I said and ran down the street, leaving behind a bewildered Niall.


"Excuse me sir, I was wondering if Harry Styles came in here earlier." I said leaning over the bar. The man started laughing, and then finally said,

"You must be joking, and who might I ask are you?" He said obviously struggling to keep a straight face. I rolled my eyes, this man will not be of any help to me if he thinks i'm taking the piss. I decided to to be stern with him and show my confidence.

"I'll let you know that i'm his girlfriend. Jess Bradford." He raised his eyebrows at me and then sighed.

"Look, if your a fan then can you please leave the bar, I do not need non-customers in here, your taking up the space." I widened my eyes at his rudeness. 

"I beg your pardon? All I wanted to know is if my boyfriend was in here. IS THAT SUCH A HARD THING TO ANSWER." I said slamming my hand down on the bar side. He frowned, obviously annoyed and taken aback from my shouting.

"Miss, I'm going to have to ask you to leave." He said. I found two pairs of strong arms pulling me back.

"God dammit, why will no one listen to me?!?!" I said, they began to drag me out of the bar, leaving a line of stares from the people in the bar. I rolled my eyes and struggled free from the security guards.

"Alright alright, you can let go of me." I said rubbing my arms. The security guards gave a cold stare before slamming the bar door shut. I sighed as I walked along the streets thinking of where on earth Harry could be. I know he said to leave him, but I need to talk to him, what Niall said about the tour dates and stuff, I just have to know. 

I called his mobile one more time, on the verge of giving up. It rang and rang and I could just hear the voice mail I knew was going to ring into my ears. 1.....2...-

"Hello?" Harry's voice stuck out snapping me out of my daze.

"H-Harry? God where have you been, I've been trying to get hold of you all night, I've been worried baby." I whined. I heard him chuckle.

"I'm on my way home now, love." His voice slurring obviously.

"Harry babe, you're not drunk are you?" I said rubbing my temples as I began walking back to the flat.

"No...of course not!" He said laughing hysterically with someone in the background.

"Harry, who are you with?" I said. He didn't reply, he was still busy laughing his sorry arse off with someone else. "Harry you answer me or god so help me I will come a-"

He hung up on me. Right i'm going home. Fuck the party. Fuck the guests. And fuck the Fireworks.



I was on my knees cleaning the flat floor clear of sick. The front door swung open and a drunk Harry came tumbling in. He dropped his keys in the box and hung his coat up. I dropped my brush on the floor, and stood up, hands on hips.

"And where have you been?" I said.

"You know, around the towwnnn!" He said.

"Harry Styles you give me a proper answer right now." I said blowing a piece of stray hair out of my face. Harry rolled his eyes at me.

"Relaaax beautiful, I was with my mate. We just went out for a drink." He said huffing like I was such a fun sponge.

"Oh yes, because normal people go out for drinks at 3am." I said sarcasticly.

"Jess listen to me, I was with Ed the whole time, don't worry, I needed to let off some steam." He said shrugging his shoulders and strolling over to the couch and lying on it slobbing out completely.

"Oh yes, because I don't need to let of steam, giving that I have a one month baby to look after, sorting out a party that we were supposed to host together. And now I'm on all fours scrubbing someones stale sick." I said, my anger boiling. He didn't answer me.

"Harry are you even listening to me?" I said strolling over and standing in front of the telly. I cocked my head to the side waiting for an answer, he shrugged his shoulders at me. I groaned in exasperation and turned the telly off.

"Hey, I was watching that." He whined. 

"I want answers now." I demanded.

"Well what if I don't want to give answers, honey." He said smirking. That's it.

"Well, i'm going to bed, and when you have decided to explain yourself you can come and join me, goodnight Harry." I said storming of towards the bedroom.
