Little Steps

Harry and Niall sneak out early one morning and run into a girl while they're out. Could this one girl possible start a fight between the boys or will one of them easily get her?

Jessie's POV

"Jessie when are you taking me to Nelly's?" My little sister asks as she walks to the dining room. "As soon as you eat your lunch." "I'm not hungry Jessie" "Please just eat at least some of it" I say not wanting to fight with her and keeping in mind she hadn't ate anything all day. She walks over to the plate sitting on the table and takes a bite of a carrot "there" she says with her 15 year old girl attitude and rolls her eyes starting to walk away "Lucyanne!" I yell as she walks away, but she doesn't turn around. I sigh and sit down resting my head on the table. Ever since our parents died and I am taking care of Lucyanne her attitude has changed dramatically. She doesn't listen to me anymore and when it comes to eating she is like a toddler, she's super picky and just doesn't eat half the time saying she's "on a diet". I hear her walk back downstairs and drop her bag by the front door then walks into the kitchen. She walks over to me and taps on my shoulder, I slowly lift my head up. "Can I have the lunch you made me?" She asks with forgiveness in her eyes. "Yeah it's all yours" I say getting up from the table. "When you're done just let me know and I'll take you to Nelly's" I load the dish washer with the few dishes that were in the sink into the dishwasher and start the dishwasher. Lucyanne places her plate in the empty sink and grabs a water bottle from the cupboard, fills it then places the cap on it and walks to her bag by the door and hooks it to the strap. "I'm ready Jess" she calls picking up her bag. I grab my keys and wallet from the kitchen table and we walk out to the car. Lucyanne gives me directions to her friend’s house and I drop her off. "I'll pick you up at 3 tomorrow. And I'll call you if plans change. Have fun Lucy" I tell her as she starts to get out of the car. "Thanks Jessie... I love you" she says closing the car door and blowing a kiss "I love you too" I said back knowing she couldn't hear me but hoping that she could. I drive away from her friend’s house after I see she got in and drive to the grocery store to get a few things. While I'm there I get a text from Harry. When his name lights up on the screen I quickly bring my phone close to me and look around making sure no one saw. I'm just a bit paranoid that something bad is going to come out of me talking to Harry let alone going on a date with him.

I finish up my grocery shopping and buy everything after which I walk out to my car and load the groceries in the back. I jump in the front seat and turn on the radio only for a One Direction song to be playing; of course, I turn it up and take the short drive home. I park my car and head inside to and put everything I bought away. I go up to my room and clean up a little then go into Lucyanne's room and take her laundry down stair to wash it. Ever since our parents died I've taken over, it's only been about a month or two, it's been a lot to get used to but I think we're finally starting to adjust. Lucyanne still has her moments and she isn't dealing with it well, mum was like her best friend and dad was mine. Our parents were going on a trip for two weeks for work. They begged us to go with them to the airport this time they had a very late flight and most of the time let us stay home but just this once they begged us to come with them. Lucyanne and I both went to the airport in our pajamas.

**FLASHBACK**

We walked with them all the way to the terminal and then said our goodbyes. Each of our parents held us close for a long hug. "I love you princess never forget that. Take good care of Lucy while we're gone. I'll miss you" my dad whispered in my ear just before kissing my forehead and I went over to say goodbye to my mother. "I'm going to miss you so much Jess don't forget that I love you princess be careful" my mum whispered to me and kisses my cheek. They grab each others hand and start to walk down the terminal. They turn around just before they got out of sight and it looked like they were both crying, they never get this emotional when they leave, they go on business trips all the time. My mum blew a kiss and my dad wrapped and arm around her and they boarded the plane. I wrapped my arm around Lucy just as my father had same to my mother and walk to the car then drove home. When we got home the two of us went straight to sleep up in our room. Tomorrow was the last day of school and we were both planning on going. I woke Lucy up and we both got ready for the last day. I drove us both to school and it ended rather quickly. Lucy found me after school and told me she was going home with Nelly. I went home and turned on the telly. I sat on the couch and started flipping through channels. My attention is caught by breaking news and I stop flipping through channels “Plane Crash from London to Florida” I quickly sit up and pay full attention to the news. “The plane left very late last night from London and was about to land in Florida when what seems to be at this point the autopilot breaking and the pilot not able to get the plane under control in time. There were very few people on this plane and most are safe except for 3 people who were riding first class, they are currently missing. That is 28 people safe getting away with minor cuts and bruises after this very scary crash. The 28 men and woman will be brought to the Miami airport while to search for the 3 missing people is started. Their identities cannot be reviled to the public yet but their families will be contacted within the next 5 hours.” Worry takes over my body and I fumble with my phone. I quickly call my mum; it rings, but no answer. I call my dad immediately after, it also rings but no answer. I start to panic, I call them repetitively but I never get an answer. I rush to my computer and search the crash to maybe find a flight number, hoping that it won’t be my parents. Flight 2381 Crashes in Flight from London to Florida: 3 Missing.Flight 2381, Flight 2381” ran through my mind over and over again while I went through my messages to find my mother and my conversation. “Hey sweetie your dad and I will be on flight 2381 tomorrow night if you want to track it”. As I read the text my heart races. My parents were riding first class, they were going to Florida, their flight number was 2381 and they weren’t answering their phone. “They can’t be one of the three, they just can’t. I can’t take care of Lucy myself. They probably just got rushed off to a meeting and will be calling in a few hours” I thought frantically but seeming to calm down a bit. I take a deep breath and close my computer. I walk downstairs and try to get my mind off of the plane crash. I hear my phone ringing about an hour later; I left it up in my room. I run upstairs to answer it, but I don’t recognize the number. I decide it would be best to answer it anyway. “Hi is this Miss. Jessie Johnson?” They ask formally “Yes it is” I answer quickly “My name is Julia Carlson and I am working on the case of the plane crash in Florida, I am sorry but your parents are two of the three missing persons from the crash” I feel that my heart stopped and I stopped breathing, my whole life came crashing down right then in that moment. I was unable to say anything and she continued talking “They have been missing for almost two hours now and I am sorry to say that they have been pronounced dead.” I break into tears as her words register in my mind. “O-okay… thank you-u for letting m-me know…” I manage to stutter. “We will get someone in contact with you soon to help you figure everything else out.” “Thank you…” I say blankly hanging up the phone.

The more I thought about that night, the crash and the days leading up to it along with the days after and I started to think that it was all set up and they knew all about the crash. They begged us to come with them, they both cried at their departure. They were the only two pronounced dead the third missing person was found. Then after, they left money for rent, groceries, all the bills and plenty extra the money was enough for probably ten years, they had to have been saving up the money for a long time. But this thought tends to escape my mind most of the time and I just try to continue on taking care of Lucy the best that I can, which I think is going pretty well. I sit on the couch with a small bowl of popcorn watching Angus Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. While watching the movie I text Harry unable to stop smiling. Harry gave me butterflies in my stomach and this feeling almost felt foreign since I hadn't felt these butterflies in what seems like ages. As I talked to Harry I couldn't imagine what Lucy was going to think. She would obviously have questions when I tell her that I have somewhere to be with friend on Sunday. I don't really have friends to go out with so this would defiantly raise some questions. I would have to tell her I met Harry and was going to be spending most of the day with One Direction sooner or later, I choose later.
