Gotta Be You

What happens after Jules and Harry get engaged? And what happens when Jules introduces her best friend, Carmen, to Niall? Will he break up with Demi for her or will they keep pretending that they weren't attracted to each other since the moment they met?

*Author Note:* Hey guys! So, this is the sequel to Operation Haylor, which you can find on my profile if you haven't read it. Unfortunately, Josh, the awesome guy who co-wrote Operation Haylor with me, isn't going to be writing any of Gotta Be You (unless he wants to do a bonus chapter or something, which has been discussed, so look out for it possibly).


6. Chapter 6


Harry kissed the top of my head. I pulled my head away from his chest but let my hand continue to rest against it, feeling his heart beat. This living, breathing boy wanted me. He was mine and I was his.

I caught his eye as he sang the last words of Truly, Madly, Deeply to me, “In love with you, in love with you, with you, oh.”

Something behind him grabbed my attention as Gotta Be You stared. Was that Carmen and Niall?

I kept watching as the boy pulled Carmen closer. They swayed to the song and she looked up at him, attentively listening to whatever he was saying...I waited for them to turn a little. Yep, that was Niall.

“Harry, did Niall and Demi break up?” I asked him, confused. They had come here together, as far as I knew. Demi hadn't mentioned anything about the two of them last night at our little sleepover. I'd seen the two of them sitting together at the wedding, and just a few minutes ago at the table.

“No,” he stated, trying to sound casual. He didn't ask me why I'd asked him if Demi and Niall had broken up. He'd already seen what I'd seen. And he knew something I didn't.

“Harry,” I said firmly.

“Let's talk about it...” he said, looking over my head to think for a moment. Which wasn't hard to do since he was so much taller than me. “Tomorrow,” he decided.

“Why not at least later tonight?” I asked him.

“You and I have different plans for tonight,” he told me with a cheeky grin.

I couldn't help but smile back at him. I couldn't keep my eyes from drifting back to Niall and Carmen, though.

I knew there was something significant about their meeting, but I didn't think anything would happen. Or at least not this quickly. Not while Niall was still with Demi. It was obvious Carmen and Niall liked each other, especially by how they were looking at each other right then, but Niall had waited so patiently and for such a long time for Demi. He was so into her.

Well, I guess a dance can't mean too much. It's not like he's cheating on Demi. Besides, Demi's right in the room. I peeked at Demi behind Harry's other side.

Oh. Demi did not look very happy.

Harry grabbed my chin and directed my attention back to him. “Love,” he scolded. I looked up at him with guilt. “Don't worry about them. This is our night. Let it go.”

“I'm sorry,” I said, throwing my arms around his neck and snuggling back into his chest. “You're right. I love you, Harry,” I told him, closing my eyes again.

“I love you, too, babe.”

***Carmen's P.O.V.***

I extended my hand for Niall and he didn't hesitate to grab it. If he wasn't worried about Demi, I wasn't either.

He led me a few steps to the dance floor. Wait a minute, I thought. Who cares about Demi? I'd like it much better if she and Niall weren't together.

I smiled up at Niall as he pulled me closer. “So what do you think?” he asked. “This is alright, isn't it?”

“It's better than alright,” I told him.

“So have you ever been to one of our concerts?” Niall asked.

“Yes, I have been,” I told him.

“Are you sure?” he asked. “I'm pretty sure there's no way I could've missed you. Not even while I was busy singing and you were in a huge crowd,” he teased, giving me a big mischievous grin.

I laughed. “Trust me,” I assured him. “I was at one. It was the most amazing thing ever.”

“Oh yeah?” he asked.

I nodded. “Best thing ever.” Besides maybe this, I thought.

“So do you like this song?” he asked.

“I love all your songs,” I told him.

“It's gotta to be you,” he sang to me. He smiled bigger than before and pulled me closer.

“Mind if I cut in?” Demi appeared behind Niall and asked me sweetly. As I pulled away a bit from him I saw Demi's face was calm but her eyes were blazing.

I opened my mouth. Actually, I do mind if you cut in, thank you very much. Niall is obviously very much into me and no longer into you.

I shut it again and mentally took a deep breath. This was Jules and Harry's wedding. All she wanted from me was to be civil to Demi. I could handle it for one night. Her wedding night. I would not yell at her. I would be calm.

I pulled my mouth into as friendly a smile as I could muster and, with the same mock-sweetness in Demi's voice, said, “Of course not.”

I stepped away from Niall and felt his eyes on me as I walked away, my head held high, my heels clicking confidently against the floor.
