4. Chapter 3 Gone

I was asleep. It was the day my dad had to leave. I hated having him leave when we had just gotten here, but it’s not like I could do anything about it. “Hey baby girl.” My dad said shaking me awake. “Sweetheart, I gotta go.” I jolted up. My dad was dressed in his uniform and had his bags in his hands.

“Why didn’t you wake me up earlier so I could spend time with you?”

“You were up late last night, so I didn’t want to wake you.”

“Well, thanks, I don’t want you to go.”

“I know baby, but I’ll be back before you know it. I promise.” He kissed my forehead and I hugged him tight. We pulled apart and I got up. I pulled my hair into a high ponytail, not really caring how it looked at the moment. We went downstairs and my parents said their goodbyes, sharing a kiss when they were done. He turned to me. “I’ll see you soon baby girl.” I ran to him and wrapped my arms around his neck; he dropped his bags and wrapped me in his arms.

“I’ll miss you daddy. I love you.”

“I love you too, and like I said, I’ll be back before you know it.” We pulled away and walked him out to his car. He put his bags in the trunk and walked back to us. We hugged him one last time and he got into his car. He drove away and I had a feeling like I wouldn’t see him again. I know it seems odd, but call it a daughter’s intuition.

Two Days Later: Today was Thursday; today Harry was taking me and my mom to go look at the vet. It was nice to get out of the house; it helped me get my mind off my dad a bit. Harry drove, my mom sat in the passenger seat and I sat in the back. “I think you both are really going to like this place.” Harry said looking in the rearview mirror at me. I smiled and blushed a bit.

“Do you know if they’re hiring?” My mom asked.

“Actually I think they are, but we can ask when we get there.” Harry said. We drove for about 10 more minutes and then pulled into a parking lot. “We’re here.” We all got out of the car and walked inside. Luckily there weren’t any fans there so we didn’t get mobbed. “Hey Marie” Harry said walking up to the lady at the front desk.

“Hey Harry, how are you?” The lady asked

“I’m good, thanks. Mrs. James would like to apply for a job here.” He said motioning to my mom.

“Okay, may I ask your first name ma’am?”

“Yes, my name’s Kara.” My mom said as she took Harry’s place after he moved aside.

“Alright, do you have any experience?”

“Yes, I worked at a vet back in New York.”

“Okay, let me print out an application and then you can fill them out and bring it back.”

“Okay, thank you.” We waited for her to print them out and then we left. We drove back to the house and when we pulled up to the drive. We all got out and Harry walked us to the door.

“So, Beka, wanna hang out?” Harry asked.

“Umm, sure, when?” I asked.

“Hmmm, in about an hour or so; I can call the boys and we can all have a day out.”

“Sounds good, do you want me to meet you at your house?”

“Ya, see you soon.” He gave me a kiss on the cheek and walked over to his house. I walked inside and shut the door, leaning against it, sighed blissfully. My mom gave me a look, raising her eyebrow.

“What?” I asked, shrugging my shoulders.

“Oh, nothing, just that Harry obviously likes you and you like him.” She said poking me in the stomach.

“Whatever.” I rolled my eyes and walked upstairs to my room. I started rummaging through my closet, trying to find something to wear. After about 10 minutes, I settled on this: I had about 30 minutes left so I just decided to text Harry.

To: Haz <3 “Hey, Haz, ready to go. :) “

From: Haz <3 “K, you can come over now if you want.”

To: Haz <3 “K, on my way” I went downstairs and told my mom I was leaving. I walked over to Harry’s house and knocked on the door. After a few seconds, Gemma opened the door. “Hey, Rebekah! How are you?”

“I’m, good, how are you?”

“Good, so I heard you and Harry are going out today.” She waggled her eyebrows. I rolled my eyes playfully and blushed a bit giggling.

“Ya, the boys and us are gonna have a day out.”

“I bet Harry wishes it was just the two of you.” She winked. “You’re all he talks about you know.”

“Oh, please, I really don’t think he likes me.”

“Whatever you say…” She rolled her eyes playfully and walked away. I stood there awkwardly, not knowing where to go.

“Hey Beka.” Harry said, coming up to me, giving me a hug and kissing me on the cheek.

“Hey, are the boys on their way?” I asked as we pulled away and walked into the living room.

“Yep, they’ll be here in like 45 minutes, we can just hang out until then. What do you wanna do?”

“I don’t know, T.V.?”

“Okay, what show?”

“Why do I have to pick?” I whined.

“Because, you’re the guest.”

“I don’t know, umm, Pretty Little Liars.”

“But that’s a chick series.”

“You asked me what T.V. show to pick, so I picked the first one that popped in my head, if you don’t like it you pick one.”

“How about… Big Bang Theory?”

“Okay.” He turned it on and we just sat in comfortable silence, laughing whenever Sheldon made a sarcastic remark. After about two shows, the doorbell rang. “That’s probably the boys, I’ll get it.” He got up and opened the door, letting the boys in, giving each of them a ‘bro hug’.

“Boys, this is Rebekah.” Harry introduced me. I stood u and hugged each of the boys. When I got to Louis we hugged and when we pulled away, he looked at my shirt. “SUPERMAAAAAAAAANNNN!!!!” He yelled making all of us cover our ears. Once he was done yelling we all uncovered our ears and looked at him.

“Lou, what was that for?” Liam asked.

“What, she’s the one that wore the shirt. Let’s go, I wanna get a new pair of TOMS.” He said as he walked back out all of us following. Harry told his mom they were leaving before he shut the door. Lou, Harry and I were in one car; while Liam Niall and Zayn were in the other. We drove to the mall and met up again at the front. “To the shoe store!” Louis said running into the building. We all went after him, Liam shaking his head a bit. Luckily, the mall wasn’t crowded because the teenagers were still in school, so the boys had less chance of being mobbed, until about 4:00 that is. We ran into a few fans here and there, some of them obviously skipping school, the others, graduated. We all went into the Payless. Louis went right for the TOMS.

“So Rebekah, do you have any TOMS?”

“Actually, no, I don’t.”

Louis gasped. “What? Okay, I’m buying you a pair of TOMS, find some you like.”

“You don’t have to do that Lou.” I really didn’t want him to; I never did like people buying things for me.

“No, I wanna be the person that buys your first pair of TOMS, so pick out a pair and don’t argue. If you don’t, I’ll just find a pair, hope they fit you and buy them anyway.”



“Ugh... fine, but I’m paying you back later.” I walked over to where the TOMS were and looked though them, I found a pair that I liked and picked it off of the shelf. (that’s my phone case). Louis took the TOMS from me and paid for them; also buying himself a pair; and walked back over to us. I thanked him and took the bag holding my new shoes.“So where to next?” This was my first time at this mall, so I didn’t know what stores they had and where everything was.

“FOOD!” Niall yelled rushing out of the store and towards what I’m assuming was the food court. The rest of the time at the mall we just spent roaming around and goofing off. We left at about 3:30 and the rest of the boys and I exchanged numbers.

“See you boys later!” I called as I walked to my door.
