Homeless.

The moment his emerald green eyes captured mine I couldn’t believe that I was staring at such beauty. The way the warm England breeze blew threw his wild curls instantly made him look like a model. But, I could only imagine what he thought of me. A girl with dirt stains on her pants and shirt, uncombed hair, and holey shoes. I was just the homeless girl.

His world was obviously so different than mine.

Just for a second I swore I could have seen deep dimples on the side of his cheeks as a small smile appeared on his face. “Uh did you not hear me? Get out of here!” the security guard asked. I regrettably tore my eyes away from the boy and nodded “Okay. Sorry again” I whispered.

“Mina…is dat boy got lotsa money?” she asked.

I chuckled and whispered “Yea. I think so” I said and continued down the long path exiting the wealthy neighborhood. “Mina and Izzy don’t got money wite?” she said.

She was right...we had nothing. We were homeless.

15. Little Things

After getting shot in the face with a crap load of nerf darts we had all finally settled down. I was a little worried about Izzy since she had slept through our whole war without waking up so I thought it was time I put her to bed. “Hey guys I’m going to go to my room and put Izzy to sleep alright?” I said hosting myself off the floor where we all laid talking amongst ourselves. “I’ll come with you” Harry suggested. I nodded my head and caught Eleanor winking at me causing me to hold in a laugh as I rolled my eyes at her suggestiveness.

 

I smiled and thanked Harry as he gently picked Izzy off of the couch and followed me out of the Louis’s room and down the hall to my own. The moment I opened it I was in awe, I mean I guess with everyone in Louis’s room I didn’t notice how huge the room was. “Where would you like her?” he asked softly as if not to wake her. “The bed is fine” I instructed following him towards the master bed room and smiling as she groaned and squinted her drowsy eyes open as she curled into the bed. “Minaaaa” she whined softly reaching out for me.

 

I instantly crawled in, looking down at her as she fully opened her baby blue eyes to peer up at me. “Sing to me” she whispered. I glanced at Harry who sat at the edge of the bed a few feet away from us and held a small smile on his lips. Although I was not used to singing in front of the boys, this was Harry and I didn’t mind, also I could not say no to those cute little eyes. “Okay, but close your eyes and sleep” I said pushing her hair away from her face as I cuddled her closer to me.

 

<i>I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles
In our eyes are mirror images and when
We kiss they're perfectly aligned
 

And I have to speculate that God himself
Did make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay
 

And true, it may seem like a stretch, but
Its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
Head when you're away when I am missing you to death
 

When you are out there on the road for
Several weeks of shows and when you scan
The radio, I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, 'come down now,' they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
'come down now,' but we'll stay...

I tried my best to leave this all on your
Machine but the persistent beat it sounded
Thin upon listening
 

And that frankly will not fly. You will hear
The shrillest highs and lowest lows with
The windows down when this is guiding you home</i>

 

 

I completely forgot about Harry watching me as I sang my sister to sleep, watching her smile, her eyes droop closed, and her soft breaths puffing against my face. It was silent and I looked over to Harry to find him holding up his phone up towards me. Was he recording me? “Harry! What are you doing?” I whisper shouted. “There was no way in hell that wasn’t being recorded. That was perfect, you’re perfect” he said seriously.

 

“Harry please delete that” I said pulling away from Izzy and reaching for his phone only to watch him laugh and pull it out of my reach and begin replaying it. I heard my voice play through the speakers and groaned “Please turn it off I don’t want to hear myself” I mumbled. He scoffed and clicked his phone off and slid it back into his pocket. “I can’t believe you can’t see how freaking talented you are Mina. Your voice is stunning” he said.

 

 

It was still hard to believe him considering before the church incident I had never sang in front of anyone except to sing my sister to sleep. But I trusted Harry and I knew that he wouldn’t lie to me, upon that realization I smiled softly and thanked him. As I looked down at my sleeping sister I realized how worn out I was as well from the whole having a panic attack on the plane, to seeing the boys be attacked by fans, I was worn out.

 

“Harry I’m going to go to sleep as well, it’s been a long day. Thanks for helping me on the plane and with Izzy and stuff” I mumbled feeling my eyes start to close as I settled myself into this comfortable fluffy bed and secured Izzy in my arms. I expected Harry to just say no problem and leave to go back with the boys but I only heard his feet leave the room then return in a short period of time. I lifted one eye open to find him sliding in next to me pulling a warm comforter over the three of us. “Harry what are you doing? Don’t you want to go hang out with the boys?” I asked. “You’re not getting rid of me that easily love. And I’ve hung out with them every day for the past 2 years. I like being with you” he said into my ear as he wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me closer to him so there was no space between my back and his chest.

 

 

“Go to sleep love” he whispered pulling my hair over my shoulder and laying a delicate kiss to the exposed area. “I promise nothing bad will happen to you. I’ll keep you safe. Always” he said. And for once in my life I truly believed everything was going to be okay. I believe that going on tour with the boys was a great decision. As I drifted to sleep I felt a spark ignite in my heart and I knew exactly who had caused it.

 

 

Harry.

 

 

He gave me hope for a better future, he made me feel safe and loved and that was something I had never experienced. I knew from that moment on that I was falling in love with him, my brain may have been telling me it was a bad idea but I refuse to listen because my heart was telling me the opposite. I trusted that if I ever fell, Harry would be there to catch me.

 

 

<b>Harry’s POV</b>

 

I had awakened to the sight of the sun rising, the light creeping past the high rise structures that made New York so famous, from the window and let my eyes quickly find Mina.

As I looked at the two sleeping beauties that I held in my arms I couldn’t help but think about how perfect this moment was. How this could have happened? I was Harry Styles, the guy who didn’t really believe that love would work out for him. The guy who could have any girl I wanted but here I was completely head over heels for a girl that was homeless, who was abused her whole life. But as I thought about it I wouldn’t have it any other way. Mina had entered my life so quickly and she was the only thing that kept me grounded in this world of materialistic things that surrounded me.

 

I smiled at the way her smaller hand was placed over mine that wrapped around her stomach and the way her body fit perfectly against mine, and then there was Izzy who was producing the most adorable soft snores I had ever heard. For a second a thought entered my mind <i> It’s like we are a family</i>. It was something I had always wanted but doubted because of my stardom. I had always wanted to be a husband, to have a beautiful wife and have kids. I couldn’t help but smile at the thought and lean over to kiss Mina gently on her neck.

 

I was pulled out of my thoughts as soft snap was heard from across the room. I looked up to find Louis and Eleanor standing at the door holding a camera. I would have been annoyed but the moment was to perfect to ruin. “This is adorable, literally” Louis said. Eleanor was too busy squealing quietly at the picture and holding her mouth so that she wouldn’t wake my girls up. “Sorry to interrupt but it’s time to go the cars already waiting for us downstairs. You’ve got like 10 minutes” Lou said taking El’s hand and leading her out of the room.

 

I groaned wishing I could just stay here in bed all day long but I knew that work was very important, plus we were shooting a video today. I thought about waking Mina up and inviting her to come to the shoot with us but I opted against it not being able to wake up the beauty that lay next to me. I gently slid my arms away from her, shaking my hair out as I got up and kissed her forehead. <i> Maybe I should leave a note</i> I thought.

 

I walked into the kitchen grabbing some paper from a nearby desk and wrote.

Sorry I wasn’t there when you woke up. We had to leave for the video shoot early and I thought you needed your sleep so decided not to wake you. I promise I’ll be back soon though! As much as I want you to go around and explore I’d rather you stay in the hotel until I get back so I can be with you and make sure your safe. I’ll see you later love. Sleep well xx Harry

 

After writing the note I took one last look at Mina and smiled softly before exiting the room to get ready.  It didn’t take me long at all seeing as when we got to set they would put me in new clothes anyway. I took a quick shower threw some clothes on, grabbed my phone and necessities and met the boys downstairs.

 

It wasn’t long until we appeared at a very nice spacious recording studio. I could tell all the boys were sleepy and happily accepted the cup of coffee some of the staff handed us. “All right boys as you know we are filming the video for “Little Things” it’s a bit more intimate then the other videos so just keep an opened mind. Basically you will be singing as if you’re recording except looking directly at the camera to create a connection with all of the fans” the director spoke to us placing a headset over his ears.

 

“Remember boys basically this song is about girl’s insecurities and loving them with flaws. We want the fans to believe you!” Simon said. I rolled my eyes as Niall laughed “They will believe us because it’s the truth. All women are beautiful!” he smiled earning approving looks from the boys. I admired Niall because he never gave up on finding his “princess”. I just hoped he found her soon because he definitely deserved her.

 

“Alright go to wardrobe, hair and makeup then be out here and ready to shoot” the director said clapping his hands together. We obey his instructions as we all walked over to our stylist Lou “So Harry darling, what’s this I hear about you being all lovey dovey with a girl” she smiled as she pulled out some clothes and handed them to me. I shrugged my shoulders not denying it as I stripped down and into the black skinny’s, white v neck, and a plaid shirt. “It’s cause he’s completely in love with her!” Liam said causing all the boys to laugh.

 

“Is that so? Harry Styles is in Love?” she said raising her eyebrows. “Hey you say it like it can’t happen” I pouted to her. “I’m not saying that, it’s just before you met this girl you were all “Love isn’t for me, I’m not a relationship guy” bullshit” she said quoting what I said a few months ago. I laughed at her impression of me and said “Well things change” I said softly with a blush thinking back to Mina.

 

“Well whoever it is I already like her cause she’s got you acting like a school boy who got sit next to his crush in class. Look at you blushing!” she said pinching my cheeks causing me to laugh and push her hands away. Once we were all finished we began shooting and it was actually pretty fun, it had taken me a while to get used to looking directly at the camera because I couldn’t imagine to singing my verse to anyone else but Mina and she wasn’t her.

 

Eleanor had shown up a few minutes into the shooting and for motivation the director asked her to stand behind the camera while Louis sand is solo and it was life changing! He was so sincere and happy when he sang to here and it really showed off in the video. For some reason we recorded all of our solos out of order and mine came last. I sat on the stool that was giving to us in front of the microphone and when the music started I sang along with confidence:

 

I know you’ve never loved the sound of your voice on tape. You never want to know how much you weight. You still have to squeeze into your jeans but your perfect to me. I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth. But it’s true, it’s you, oh it’s you they add up to. I’m in love with you and all these little things

 

As I sang a bunch of images filled my head the time I had spent with Mina, the first line reminded me of when I recorded her singing to her sister and she didn’t like to hear her voice. The second line reminded me of a time when we had all gone out to dinner and I treated Mina to a huge slice of chocolate cake and laughed as she rubbed her tummy saying how she was never going to get on the scale. Then my favorite memory was when she tried on her pants, which I had found her in at the playground that night, and tried them on again not being able to fit because she was finally gaining weight and becoming a normal size. She ran around the house screaming how she wasn’t skin and bones anymore.

 

I smiled as I sang thinking all of these things and heard the music stop. Shit I’d probably would get in trouble for not looking at the camera but when I looked up I saw literally everyone with huge smiles on their faces. “Ohhhh Hazzah’s got it bad!” Zayn said poking my cheek. It was true. I loved her, there was no point in denying it.

 

All I wanted to do was keep her safe and make sure no one ever hurt her again and prove to her that she deserved so much more than everything that had happened to her. I was determined to make her life amazing and to show her that no matter what I would always be there for her. “Come on admit it man!” Liam said with a smile.

 

I groaned. “Fine! I love her okay!” I said causing everyone to cheer, I guess it was a pretty big deal. After regrettably opening my heart for Caroline and her crushing it I didn’t think it would ever happen again and partially didn’t want it to happen so that I wouldn’t have to deal with the pain. But the love I had for Mina was so much more than the first time I thought I was in love, this was real and sincere.

 

I kept checking my watch as it grew later in the day worrying about what Mina was up to, I hoped she had listened to what I had said and stayed in the hotel room. I lost track of time while the boys and I played the guitar, listened to the recordings and watched the video cuts until we finally decided on the final video. It was really amazing and definitely intimate. I knew the fans would love it! “Alright great day boys! Thank you for all your hard work the video is done!” he shouted as everyone cheered and laughed. “Well we want to thank the amazing staff for being so patient and helping us out” Zayn said to the staff who nodded in appreciation.

 

“Also boys you can each take a cut of the video home with you to keep for memories sake” the director said handing us each DVD’s, that was actually a pretty cool thing to do. We gather up all of our stuff feeling dreadful but happy as we filled out of the building that held the studio and began to talk and take pictures with some of our fans. Thankfully there weren’t too many around and nothing got out of hand as we finally filled into the SUV. “That was a real chilled shoot. I liked it!” Niall said leaning his head against the back of the seat.

 

“Hey let’s watch it!” Louis said pulling on the DVD and popping it into the DVD player. We all gave each other cute comments at each of the solos and we laughed at some of the stupid moments until my solo came up. I watched the way my smile lit up on certain words and they way my eyes shined. “Harry, you have got to show this to her! This is the sweetest thing ever!” Eleanor said with a huge smile.

 

“I don’t know, what if she’s creeped out by it or something?” I said. She scoffed “Come on we are girls, we love stuff like this. It’s so obvious in this that you are madly in love! You have go to show her she’s gonna be so happy!” she said. I thought about it for a moment, should I show her the video? I mean it was true the feelings I had for hear showed all over my face while I sang. Maybe I could even tell her I love her…

 

I was battling my thoughts as we arrived at the hotel confused as to what I should do. Maybe it was too early to reveal my feelings, I mean she’s had a hard past and she probably doesn’t love me back like that. But then if I did tell her and everything went well I could finally call her mine. Was I even ready to take that risk and put my heart out on a plate again because last time it didn’t go so well. I guess my worry was written on my face as Louis gave me a pat on the shoulder “Go for it mate, she really is something special” he said.

 

Louis’s opinion had always been one of the most important to me and if he thought I could do it then I had to try. As we entered the elevator I felt like my heart was about to beat out of my chest.

 

I was actually about to admit my love to Mina.
