Cocktails and Cigarettes

14. Ch. 14


On Monday, I was getting ready for work with Lou Teasdale. I had emailed with her, back and forth and we were meeting up at my apartment. She would be here by six and it was five-thirty in the morning. I had on black leggings, a long, fuzzy white sweater, a black purse, and three inch black pumps. I had put on a gold watch and a gold anchor necklace to complete the look. I straightened my hair and did my makeup simply so I didn’t look too overdone.

At exactly six, I was waiting down in the lobby. When I saw her car pull up, I walked out and took a seat next to her in the passenger seat. She smiled at me and pulled away.

“You must be Bethany?”

“Yes, and you must me Ms. Teasdale?” She laughed and glanced at me. She really was a beautiful woman.

“Call me Lou, please.” I smiled and nodded.


“Is there any nickname you would like?” I shook my head.

“Bethany is just fine.” Lou smiled and nodded.

“Alright, that’s good.”

“So, what exactly will I be doing today?” I asked nervously.

“You won’t do anything too over-bearing. All I really need done today is some measurements on the boys and for you to run them to a store. Other than that, probably just some coffee runs for the photo shoot they have today.” I nodded.

“That’s not too bad.”

“Yeah, and you only take orders from me, the boys, or Simon- that’s it, no one else.” I nodded again.

“Okay. You’re pretty laid back, aren’t you?” Lou laughed, making her eyes sparkle.

“Yeah…I am I guess.” I smiled as we pulled into the parking lot. We got out and walked into the building to check in. After that, we walked to the back where the dressing rooms are. I knew we were getting close because I could hear the boys screams.

When we opened the door, they were all in pajamas, looking ridiculous. They were on table yelling and screaming at each other about who ate Niall’s last pancake.

“HEY!” Lou screamed, clapping her hands. All the boys quieted down and turned to look at Lou. Harry however froze when he saw me. I gave him a small smile and looked up at Lou. “This is Bethany- she’s going to be with us for a few weeks as a school project. She’s going to be taking your measurements today. If you need anything, please go to her. Bethany, you know them by name, correct?”

“I know them all personally.” I said, smirking.



“How do you know Harry?” You could tell Lou was shocked.

“It’s kind of a long story…” I said slowly.

“Well, when we spend a day together, which we will soon, you better tell me.”

“Yes ma’am.” I said.

“Now…get started on their measurements.” I nodded and put my bag down as Lou walked out of the room. I grabbed a piece of paper and wrote down everything I needed to measure.

“So, when did you find out you were working with Lou?” Harry asked first.

“Last week.” I said seriously.

“And you never told me?!” Harry sounded hurt, but I found this funny.

“Surprise?” I said, making Harry smiled. “Come here.” I grabbed Harry first and started on him. A half hour later, I finished with all of them and ran them over to the address Lou gave me. Afterwards, I went to a breakfast place to get Niall some pancakes since someone apparently ate his. He didn’t ask for them, but I knew he was upset since someone ate his so I figured I’d be nice and get him makeup pancakes.

“I’m back!” I called, walking back in. Lou was working on Zayn’s hair while everyone was still in pajamas.

“What took you so long?!” Lou demanded.

“Someone ate Niall’s pancakes this morning, so I went and got him some more.” I said quietly. A smile grew on Lou’s face.

“That’s nice of you.”

“DID YOU REALLY?!” Niall yelled, running over to me.

“Here.” I handed him the box and he gave me a huge hug.

“You’re the best!” He said before walking back to the couch to eat them, making everyone laugh.

“Do you guys need anything else?”

“Can you get me water with a straw so I can actually drink it?” Zayn asked. I nodded and went to go get that. A minute later I came back and gave it to him. “Thanks.” I nodded and sat down next to Harry.

“So, does this mean I get to see you a lot more often?” Harry whispered to me. I bit my lip and nodded.

“Yeah…most likely.” Harry smiled and leaned back, stretching.

“Good…I’d like that a lot. I was afraid I wouldn’t see you as much since I would be working.”

“No worried Harry; I’ll be here.” He smiled at me and leaned his head on my shoulder, falling asleep.
