Six Years In MSG

Domino left home at the age of 12 and hasn't looked back in eight years. She relies solely on her friend Ryder to give her food from his father's stand in New York City. The little girl learned to live on her own, taking shelter in an abandon closet in Maddison Square Garden, and as you can imagine living there has had its pluses and minuses. Domino has seen countless concerts from her secret rooms and hideouts throughout MSG without being seen, but what happens when a certain Harry Styles spots her when One Direction comes to play MSG? Can he get her to open up around her past? And what happens when Harry decides he wants to take care of her?

21. Ryder is WHAT?

Harry's P.O.V.

The next day I kept thinking about our conversation,"  There is no 'us'". I played that phrase over and over again in my head. But there was an us, and she knew it. I guess I was just so frustrated that she wouldn't admit it to herself.

I pictured years ahead from now. Her with Niall going to all the interviews and events, and after each one waiting to give him a kiss and tell him he did great. I wanted that to be me so badly.

Maybe she was right, maybe I just needed to move on. Find someone else. 

I was in the elevator, heading to the workout room with Liam, while all of this was going through my head. I had a feeling my work out today was going to be intense. 

We walked in and immediately started. Within probably twenty minutes I was sweating. I thought about why Doe wouldn't be with me even though I know she wants to. I thought about how Niall doesn't treat her as well as I would. I thought about the garden, and dancing with her in it. 


After our workout Liam and I sat on one of the benches and drank water. I hadn't noticed before how big the gym actually was, but that wasn't the point.

" What happened last night Harry?"

" What do you mean?"

" Domino came back crying, obviously something went down between you two."

I took a sip of my water and then answered," Nothing, she's made it quite clear what her decision is that's all," I wasn't talking to Liam too much about it. After all he was the one that told Domino I loved her.

" She chose Niall?"

I nodded.

" Harry I have to tell you that I did tell her of the conversation you had with Niall and that you mentioned you had very strong feelings for her-"

" Liam she told me."

" Are you mad that I did?"

I paused. Was I mad? " I don't think so. It didn't affect the outcome at all."

" Did she say why she chose him?"

" She said she couldn't break his heart," you could feel the frustration and the anger in my voice.

He nodded, and then there was a long, awkward silence," Well I'm going to head up. You know shower and such before rehearsals later."

I nodded, I wasn't in the mood for rehearsals because with them came two hours or Doe watching from the side stage, but not me of course, just Niall.

I sat there for a while before someone sat down next to me. She had the same jet black hair Doe used to have, and her eyes were green, similar to the color of mine.

" Are you alright?" she asked. She was a little out of breath, but it wasn't out of the ordinary since I was still in the gym.

" I'm fine. Just enjoying some time to myself," I took a double take of her and realized she was pretty young and didn't look half bad either," Who's asking?"

I knew I was flirting and despite her physical appearance, I wasn't interested. I was forcing myself back out there, but it was clear I didn't want to be. All I thought about was Domino and how she might react if she saw me with another girl.

" Laila. I'm one of the personal trainers here."

That's why she was interested. She just wants me out of her gym," Oh I can leave sorry-"

" NO! I mean you're fine it's just... I'm on break for the next two hours, and I saw you sitting here and was wondering if you wanted to get some coffee?"

" Oh umm listen I'm not in the best mood, and I have rehearsals in a few hours, and-"

" Alright let me go get my bag and we can leave."

She walked away and I smiled. She was pushy, but she might be perfect for my idea.


Domino's P.O.V.

" Niall!! Please just tell me my surprise! You are ripping my arm out!" Niall had woken me up even earlier than usual for a "big surprise" I was meeting for coffee.

" Fine fine but hurry up! We are late!"

" Niall it's only nine!"

We walked into the cafe and ordered. The whole time I was pestering Niall about my surprise. Once we got over to a table I exploded," Alright now what is it?"

He just smirked at me.

" Niall!!"

He laughed, and then started looking around behind me," Niall what is-"

Standing behind me was someone I never expected to see. I stood up and engulfed him in the biggest hug ever. I was lifted off the ground and everything," I missed you Ryder."

" Me too! Hows tour been?! And the new look?! Your hair is even lighter then mine now!"

I laughed at him," Alright put me down and Ill talk! People are staring."

Niall had the biggest smile on his face," Am I a good boyfriend or what?"

Wait. Boyfriend? A real relationship? Even Ryder was confused across the table. I was going to need to ask him about that later. Instead I gave him a kiss on the cheek to shut him up as Ryder and I continued are conversation. 

It lasted so long that eventually Niall had to leave because he had rehearsals. 

" So now that he's gone what's the deal between your love triangle Doe? You have never been one for guys or drama so spill."

I looked around. Sure enough we were in a public place there had to be undercover paps here. 

" Lower your voice. I'll text it."

" Why?"

" Paps undercover."

He smiled and waited. It took a while, but I texted it and handed it to him. It took him just as long to read it as it did for me to type.

When he was done he sighed," This is a toughy Doe, but nothing you can't handle. I just saw how happy you are with Niall, and obviously he thinks you are together, so if it were me I would say to just leave it like this. Especially since Niall is a nice guy and we are pals. If you changed your mind it would be awkward texting him for updates."

I laughed. As usual Ryder was his hilarious comments," What about you? How's the store? How's life?"

He looked down at his coffee and smiled. The same smile when he was up to something or had a secret.

" Ryder?! Tell me"

" Doe, I ummm... I met someone. That's why I came to visit. She's younger too and she's working up here for the weekend. I'm going to propose to her."


" Doe calm down! Listen I know-"

" Ryder you are only nineteen!! How old is she? Ryder you're so young, you haven't even started at University yet! How-"

" DOE!! Just listen for a second. It's going to be a long engagement. She's 23, but we really understand each other. You have to know I wouldn't be this serious about it if I wasn't in love with her," when I didn't respond he ask," Aren't you happy for me?"

I nodded," I am, but I still don't 100% agree with it. What's her name?"

" Laila."
