Harry’s POV

After dinner last night the boys crashed in my room. We had a nerf gun fight and then watched a film. I didn’t mind them two being here, but I woke up with a foot in my face. I groaned “Niall move your foot out of my face.” Niall rubbed his eyes “Sorry”. I sat up and noticed Niall slept at the bottom of my bed and Liam was in the other bed. “What time is it?” Liam asked in a sleepy voice. “10:30” Niall said, looking at his phone.

We all groaned and got up. I had no clue where I put my phone so I had Liam call it. “It’s over here.” He called. “Thanks” I said picking it up. I had a message from Addie, making a smile appear on my face. “Thanks for today, I had a great time. But tickle me again and you’re dead! (:” She wrote. I let out a chuckle and was about to call her, but remembered she had classes today. Darn.

“Want to get some breakfast?” Niall asked. “Sure, where’s Liam?” “He went to get ready and pick Danielle and Perrie up, with Zayn.”  I nodded and went to get a quick shower before leaving.

We got to Starbucks and grabbed a coffee and bagel. There was a table open so we decided to sit down and hang out for a bit. You could only hear coffee brewing and the occasional laugh from the table behind us. Niall popped the last of his bagel in his mouth and spoke up “So are you bringing Addie to the party tonight?” A confused look crossed my face, letting him know to explain more. “Remember our management is throwing us a party because of our second album!?” Then it hit me all at once. Today was Friday, I completely forgot. I quickly pulled my phone out to call Addie, not caring if she was busy at the moment. Niall reached a crossed the table and took my phone. “Hey, I need to call Addie.” I whined. “Hold on a sec.” He said. I waited feeling a tad annoyed “What?” “Um… well I-I was wondering…” “Niall spit it out.” I said. “Could you maybe see if Addie has a friend that would be my date, so I’m not the only one?” he nervously rambled. I stood up and patted his shoulder. “Sure buddy, let me go call her now.”  I grinned. He nodded, handing the phone back and relief hit him. There was a bench right by the shop, so I sat down and gave her a call.

She picked up on about the third ring and sounded out of breath. “Hey, Beautiful” I said. “Harry! Hi” she giggled. “Did you run a marathon or something?” I teased. “What? No, I had to track down my professor to give him my paper. Meaning I ran all around campus and now I’m tired and the day isn’t even half over.” She signed. “I know what could make you feel better.” I smiled. “What?” she asked excitedly. “You could come to a party with me tonight. Please please please!” I begged. The only thing I heard was her laugh. “Addie?” “Sorry, I was just wondering how much longer I could get you to beg. But yes, I’m in. She giggled. “Ha-ha so funny…” I laughed along. “So I’ll pick you up around 7.” “Sounds good, see ya later” she said.” I felt like I was forgetting something and then it clicked. “Addie, wait!” “Hm?” she asked. “Do you think one of your friends would like to go with Niall tonight? I asked hopeful. “Yeah! Do you think he would like Willow?” she questioned. “He will love her. Thanks, I owe you!” I said through a chuckle. “I’ll remember that mister.” She laughed. We said our goodbyes and I headed back in to tell Niall the good news.

Willow’s POV-

I just got done with my last class and decided to head to the café for a smoothie. Walking down the street, I heard a weird noise coming from behind me. It was getting closer to the point I almost could understand what was being said. I finally turned around to see Addie running toward me. I couldn’t help but laugh as she pushed past people, but insisted on saying sorry to them. I swear nice was her middle name.  “Willow!” she said running to grab my hands. I focused my attention on her, noticing she was out a breath. “I can’t read your mind.” I said shaking her hands. She took a deep breath and continued. “Harry asked me to his and the boys’ party tonight.” I smiled as she jumped up and down. “And…. You’re coming to!” “What?!” I shrieked. She giggled at me and nodded her head to confirm it. “You’re going with Niall as his date.” “What, again?!” I yelled, not noticing the attention we were getting. “Come on, before you make a sense.” She smiled. “Already did! Where are we going? I asked. “SHOPPING” she grinned. Then we were off, hand in hand trying to find the perfect outfit for the night.

“Oooo Add try this orange dress on!” I beamed, proud of the find.” “Wow, that’s stunning.” She smiled while studying it. “Go try it on and I will meet you there in a sec.” I said, dresses spilling out from both of our arms. She nodded and headed to the back. I was having the hardest time finding something that would pop against my dark skin. I gave up and started walking to the back when something sparkly caught my attention. “Beautiful” I whispered, while pulling the blue sparkly dress out in front of me. I was pretty pleased with my dresses and headed back to see what Addie had on.

I placed all my clothes in a changing room when I heard Addie call, “Hey Willow, can you zip me?” She walked out of the room and my jaw dropped she looked amazing. She turned around to be zipped up and then walked over to the mirror. “Damn girl, I don’t think Harry will be able to keep his hands off you!” I teased. She faked punched my arm and started to blush. “Yeah, yeah, less talking more dress trying on.” She snickered.

Addie decided to go with the orange dress and I was probably on my 7th, still no luck. “Wil, try on the blue one with the glitter.” She called. I decided to give it a go and try it on.  I keep my eyes closed, not wanting to be disappointed by what lay in the mirror. I opened the door, hearing Addie freaking out. “That’s the one, that’s the one! Open your eyes you nut. It’s beautiful on you!” She cheered. She walked me over to the mirror and my eyes peeked open. “Wow” was all I could say.

Addie’s POV

Our hair and makeup was finished, and we finally got back to the dorms to get dressed. “What time did you say they were coming again?” Willow frantically called from the bathroom. “7 and chill out a little, you got 30 minutes to calm down and not freak out.” “Okay, I will try.” Willow nervously whispered. She was literally acting the way I did a couple of nights ago when I went on my first date with Harry. We got on our dress and looked like this (Outfit).

A light tap hit off our door and both of our eyes grew big. “There is a window if you still want to run for it.” I joked. Willow put both of her hands on my back and pushed me toward the door to answer it. Right in front of me stood two handsome guys or lads I guess. Both were holding a rose. Niall had a white one for Willow and Harry had a red one for me. The rose flashed back to my dream I had the other night, still not sure of what it meant.

“You look absolutely beautiful.” Harry smiled leaning in to brush his lips on mine. I blushed but tried to cover it up by introducing Willow to Niall. Niall quickly jumped at the chance to introduce himself and get Willow already laughing. I smiled at how cute they were and noticed Harry trying to get my attention. “This is for you.” He said handing me the rose. I gave him a hug and melted into his strong arms. Not wanting to let go. “Thank you” I whispered, planting a kiss on his cheek. He nodded his head and took my hand, ready to leave.  Willow and Niall were right in front of us, heading to the car. I started to follow them but was held back by Harry’s strong grip on my hand. “We’re going to take a separate car” I heard Harry say to me from above. Forgetting how tall he was, even though I was in heels. I nodded my head, following him into the vehicle.

When we were inside, Harry placed his hand on my knee and smiled like a fool at me. “I’m sorry that this all was short notice. I completely forgot about the party all together.” He said, feeling a little guilty. I gave him a reassuring look “No, it’s fine. Don’t worry about it. I’m just happy to be with you.” “Good, me too.” He grinned, kissing my cheek which then lead to my mouth. We must have kept that going for a while because the driver called back to us, letting us know we were here. Harry didn’t seem to care, he went right back to my lips and neck, making me laugh and having to put my hands on his shoulders. Damn, his muscles amazing. “Harry, we better get out.” I said trying to sound serious, but he broke out laughing and so did I.

“Ready?” He asked me before opening the door. I nodded my head, intertwining our fingers together. As soon as the door was open, flashes filled the area. All I could think of was, what did I get Willow into? Or the real question was, what did I get myself into?
