Dressing Up or Dressing Down? (One Direction/Lou Teasdale)

Melody is just an ordinary girl, or so she hopes. Her dream is to become a stylist, but after a traumatic experience it was locked in her inner closet. What will happen when she moves to London to be mentored by the famous Lou Teasdale, her idol? What will become of her when she meets the five lads everyone wants to meet? No one knows, except Fate.


25. Never Believe The Cousins

“She’s cold.” Jane.

“We should get Harry to fix that.” Delilah snickered.

“He loves his sleep as much as she does.” Louis?

“You got that right.” Niall?!

“What the hell are you doing in my room?!” I shrieked sitting up to find six amused faces staring at me.

“RUN!” Jane screamed and ran out of the door with five bodies following her. I was almost back asleep when my door was flung open. Harry was standing there looking panicked.

“Melody? Are you okay?” he asked rushing over to me.

“I’m fine. What’s wrong?” I asked rubbing my eyes.

“Your cousins told me you were passed out on the floor.” He said.

“And you believed them?” I asked quizzical.

“I did, yes.” He nodded.

“They were in here not five minutes ago talking about me being cold and that they should get you to fix it.” I sighed pulling the covers over my head.

“Are you cold?” he asked.

“A little.” I said from under the covers.

“Do you want me to fix it?” he chuckled.

“Yes, but I have to get up. We’re flying back to London tomorrow.” I said sitting up with the duvet covering my face.

“Why do you keep doing that?” he asked.

“Doing what?” still under the duvet.

“Sit up with the duvet covering you face?” he asked.

“I dunno.” I shrugged. It was pulled away and a soft kiss was in its place.

“How’s the lip doing?” he said when he pulled away.

“Its fine.” I said getting up.

“That’s why you’re cold! You barely have any clothes on.” Harry said and I felt a blush creep onto my cheeks. I pulled out an outfit and was about to pull my top off when I remembered him behind me.

“Avert your eyes or leave.” I said facing him.

“But I’ve seen you naked before, Mel.” he grinned.

“No, you’ve seen my bum and that’s it.” I said with my hands on my hips.

“And it’s a cute one.” He chuckled.

“Get out.” I said pointing to the door.

“Fine.” He pouted and walked out the door. I quickly got dressed and bunny hopped down the stairs again.

“Must be another cousin thing.” Niall said to Louis who was staring at me.

“Must be. Jane and Delilah did the same thing not two minutes ago, except they went up.” Liam said sitting down on a couch.

“Good morning, Mel.” Zayn said from the opposite couch.

“Good morning, Zayn.” I said plopping down next to him. “What are we doing today?”

“Jane said were going back to the mall, because last time we didn’t do half the things we should have.” Niall said.

“Great…” I groaned.

“That sounds enthusiastic.” Harry said coming down the stairs.

“Wow, you take longer than I do and I’m the girl.” I smirked.

“Boo Bear! She’s being mean to me!” he cried into Louis’ side.

“I’ll protect you. Superman is here!” he shouted. I rolled my eyes and went to the kitchen. I grabbed a box of cereal and walked back to the couch.

“Want some?” I asked holding the box out to Zayn.

“How do eat it dry like that?” he asked shaking his head.

“Don’t know, don’t care.” I shrugged.

“Uh oh.” They said in unison.

“What’s wrong?” I asked putting my hand in the box. They pointed to my shoulder.

“Fucking hell! JANE! GET DOWN HERE!” I screamed seeing the tarantula sitting casually on my shoulder.

“WHAT’S WRONG?!” she yelled coming down the stairs.

“Sp-sp-spider!” I stuttered.

“Rosie! Mel, just sit still. If she falls her abdomen will split and then it’s a slow and painful death.” She said rushing over.

“Just get it off!” I shrieked. I know its stupid, but I could feel the tears spring into my eyes.

“Uh oh.” The boys repeated.

“What?” Jane asked taking the spider away.

“Look.” They said pointing to me.

“Mel, don’t worry. She can’t hurt you.” Jane said rubbing my back.

“I know. I’m sorry. I’m just terrified of spiders.” I said with my face in my hands.

“Come on, Delilah is waiting at the truck already. Lets get your mind of things.” She said pulling me up.

“Yeah, lets go.” I said walking out the door. We piled onto the truck and sped off to the mall. 


“I’m hungry!” I whined as Jane and Delilah entered another store.

“Mel, this is the last store. Now go get something to wear for tonight.” Jane said pulling me into the store. The boys were off exploring.

“But we’re just having a traditional braai. Why can’t I wear what I always do?” I asked.

“Jeans, a tank top and socks?” Jane inquired.

“Yeah, that’ll be really attractive.” Delilah said rolling her eyes.

“Fine, but I’m not getting another dress.” I pouted.

“Look, be a good girl and find an outfit. Then we can go to Nando’s or something and get food.” Jane said ushering me to a rack of clothes. I sighed and started going through the clothes. I found nothing, except a hoodie that was extremely bright. Nothing in the shoes section either. I bought a pair of black skinny jeans and the bright hoodie. I found my cousins with three bags and we went to meet the boys at the fountain.

“Hey, girls. Find anything interesting?” Niall asked.

“No.” I said looking at the girls.

“We did. She didn’t.” Jane said looking at me.

“Can we get food now?” I asked annoyed.

“I’m starving.” Niall said.

“You’re always starving.” Zayn chuckled.

“Come on!” I said pulling Niall over to Nando’s.

“I didn’t know they have this here!” he said his eyes big.

“But I’m glad they do.” I said pulling him inside.

“Table for 8?” I asked as a waitress came to meet us.

“Follow me.” she said and walked to a booth.

Anyway, thanks for reading! Like always, don't forget to drop a comment down there! And maybe leave a like? I appreciate each and every one of those reads.

Okay, so I'm not hyper today.
