16. Chapter 16
























Chapter 16

I woke up and found a sleepy Christian on my bed. We got home so late last night that I told him it was alright if he wanted to stay over since we were all tired. He thought it would be a burden to let him sleep over, but I told him that as long as he did not try anything that it was fine. I felt sort of awkward having him in the same bed as me especially because the last time I had a boy in the same bed as me was when my John incident happened.

I closed my eyes thinking of how much he hurt me. He took everything from me. My innocence and my ability to fall in love. Thanks to him I can never open my heart to anyone. Which is why it hurts me to know that I would never be able to love Christian. I would always care about him, but I will never be able to love him.

Zayn, on the other hand was different. Something about him made every cell in my body burn with the urge of having him next to me. I wanting to be in his arms and let him into my heart, but at the same time I was afraid of all the wrong things that can happen between us.

I open my eyes and slowly get up from my bed trying not to wake Christian. I walk out of my room and into the living room. In the living room I find Janell and....OH MY! Niall!

Niall had his shirt off laying on the ground and Janell rested her head on his chest. They were both wrapped in a blanket sound asleep. I looked around trying to look for Rosalie, but couldn't find her anywhere. I wonder if she even spent the night here. Did I miss something last night? I do not remember Niall coming home with us and I do not remember Rosalie coming home with us either. I was so exhausted last night that Christian and I just hopped into bed and knocked out cold.

I went into the kitchen to make myself some coffee trying to make as minimal noise as possible. I was so confused on what when on last night. I finish making myself my coffee and sit down on the table trying to make any sense of what happen last night. I mean I know that Rosalie was getting a ride from Liam, but did she come home or did she go back to the hotel with Liam? No Rosalie doesn't like Liam that way and besides Liam is interested in a nice girl named Danielle. He talks about her all the time and I think he is planning on asking her out. Ok, now Niall. I was positive that I dropped him off at the hotel last night because Harry was riding with us and I saw them both get out of the car. I was driving myself crazy trying to figure all this out.

My thoughts immediately went to Harry. Last night Harry and I had a very interesting conversion. I was very confused when he said that he wanted to talk to me alone and I did not what he would want to talk about. My thoughts floated back to when Harry pulled me aside while we were walking down Disneyland.


* * *Flashback* * *

“Ella can we talk,” Harry said pulling me aside.

“Yeah sure,” I said letting go of Christian's hand and walking a few steps behind him so that Harry and I would be alone.

Harry looked a bit nervous and I can tell that he was having trouble telling me what he wanted to tell me.

“Harry what is it?” I asked, “You are sort of scaring me.”

He smiled and said, “Don't worry it isn't bad it is just that I am sort of embarrassed to tell you.”

OK, this was very confusing now. I did not know that Harry was capable of being embarrassed. I mean he was always so flirty and confident.

“You don't have to tell me if you don't want to,” I said.

He smiled his flirty smile that revealed his dimples and said, “Remember you said that you were going to introduce me to your friend.”

“Yea,” I prompted him to go on.

“Well lately I've been feeling sort of alone. I mean being around the lads is so much fun and being around you and the girls is fun too, but I see you all as very good friends. I look at you and your boyfriend and wish that I had someone to share laughs with too and I mean even Zayn has Adeline even though what they have is...” he stops then continues, “my point is I would really like to meet your friend.”

I smile at Harry because it was nice to see him feel so vulnerable. He was always putting up this 'I am having the time of my life' look and to see him want something special with someone made me happy.

“I am sure she would love to meet you too,” I said, “Only I should probably warn you. Um. She is a big fan.”

He smiled and said, “as long as she is a girl I am ok with it.”

I laugh and say, “Harry why wouldn't she be a girl?”

“I have no idea, but that would be a bit weird,” he said scrunching his eyebrows in disgust.

* * * * * *

I pick up my phone and text Nicolette. Hey what are you up to?

I put my phone down on the table and walk over to the sink to was my coffee cup. I start to think of how I am going to tell Nicolette that Harry Styles was interested in her without her freaking out. I mean I know she won't go completely nuts but I don't want her to have a heart attack when I tell her.

I was reaching for the dish soap when I a firm hold around my waist startled me. I turn around and Christian was standing behind me his chin resting between my neck and shoulder.

“Mm,” he moans and I could feel his hot breathe on my skin.

“Morning Christian,” I say.

“Morning babe,” he says and kisses me right below my jawline.

“Did you sleep well,” I asked.

“Sleeping next to you was the best,” he said.

I frown because I did not feel the same. Sleeping next to him was hard and uncomfortable. I know it wasn't his fault because this was just something that has to do with my past, but I felt bad because I could never feel like he feels when he is with me.

“Is something wrong Ella,” he asked feeling my mood change.

I shake my head turn getting away from his grip. I sit on the table and check my phone to see if Nicolette texted me.

“Did I do something wrong last night?” He asked.

I turn to look at him and say, “No. It's has to do with my past and I am not sure I am ready to talk about it with you yet.”

The truth was I wasn't sure if I can ever talk about it with anyone. The only reason that Monica and my friends knew about that was because they were there for me when it happened, but I made them swear never to bring it up again. I did not want to replay that horrible time when John made me feel wanted and then teared me down making me feel like I didn't matter.

Christian walked closer to me and knelt down in front of me. He takes my hands in his and says, “I don't know what happened to you but I am sorry and I wish I could do anything to help you.”

“I don't think anyone can help me Christian, but thank you for being here for me,” I said.

He nodded and stood up walking over to fix himself a cup of coffee. He was only wearing his jeans and I hadn't noticed that he was a very good looking person. He had a six pack that I hadn't even noticed before and he was looking very hot this morning.

“So why is Niall here?” He asked.

I laughed and said, “I have no idea.”

Janell soon joined us in the kitchen forcing us to stop our laughing. She had messy hair throwing her arms in the air to stretch and yawn. She soon noticed our awkward expressions on our faces and said, “Why are you guys looking at me that way?”

Christian and I exchanged a look knowing that we were both thinking that Janell and Niall spent an intimate night last night. He brought his hand up to his hair brushing it back nervously. Janell stared at us confused knowing that there was something we were both thinking about. I was about to speak when I heard Christian talk.

“You and Niall had a great time last night didn't you,” he said making a thrust motion with his hips.

I stared at him in disbelief and I couldn't help but burst into laughter. I didn't mean to laugh but I found it so funny how Christian has become so comfortable with all of to make a joke like that. I brought my hand up to my mouth to try and stop myself from laughing and looked over at my friend. Her eyes were wide open with surprise and her jaw dropped. I can see her cheeks turning a reddish color that indicated how embarrassed she was.

“We didn't do anything,” she finally said.

“The scene in there say otherwise,” Christian said pointing towards the living room.

Her cheeks were still burning red and she brought up her hands to her face as if to shield herself from being seen. She brought her hands down and sighed, “We were watching a movie. That was all. He was bored at the hotel and he came over and,” she paused, “we might have made out a bit, but that is it. That is as far as it got.”

I looked at my friend raising an eyebrow and said, “Why is his shirt off?”

She was about to speak when Niall walked in the kitchen his shirt no longer off. He yawned stretching out his arms and said, “Morning.”

Janell instantly started to fix her hair and she started to blush once more. I couldn't believe what I was watching my friend was really into Niall. I could see the effect that he has on her making her smile with just one glance and making her blush just with the presence of having him near. Niall stood besides Janell and put his arm around her. Christian and I stared at them not believing what we were witnessing. Had my friends made it official? Niall ran his hand through his bright blonde hair making my friend smile at the ground.

“Louis just called and said if we all wanted to join them at the beach,” Niall said not leaving Janell's side.

Janell beamed with excitement staring at Niall his arm still wrapped around her. I started to feel a bit jealous that she was able to be with Niall. I on the other hand had one task in mind and that was to forget about being able to have Zayn that close to me.

“I would love to,” Janell said.

Niall smiled at her then planted a light kiss on her cheek. My jaw dropped at what I was witnessing. There was no doubt that these two were definitely closer then ever. I have no clue on what happen last night between them but I was glad it did. I could see how happy them both looked and I was happy for them.

I looked over at Christian as he took a sip of his coffee, “I don't think I can go with you guys.”

“What?” I asked. There was no way I was going with out him. I was hardly able to stand being so close to Zayn yesterday even though Christian was making it a lot more bearable. Not having Christian around would make it hard for me to be in the same planet that Zayn was in.

“I am sorry babe, but my family is in town and I can not just leave them roaming around LA,” he says.

I look down at the ground a bit disappointed. I was about to speak and say I was not going either because I was not comfortable going with out Christian especially now that Niall and Janell were a couple.

“You should bring them with you,” Janell said. She probably noticed how disappointed I was that Christian was not able to go with us.

“Oh, I don't know. Are you sure it'll be alright with all of you,” he asked.

This meant that I would meet his family and I don't think I am ready for that, but I did want him to join us at the beach.

“That's a great idea. That way we can meet you're cousin,” Niall said, “she is a fan right?”

Christian nodded then looked over at my direction. My hands were gripped at the edge of the chair. I felt so nervous and I didn't know if I was ready to take this step. I was just starting to get used to being with Christian and meeting his family was just too big of a step to take in this relationship.

“What do you think, Ella,” Christian asked.

My heart started to race and I could feel the blood burning in my veins. I was not expecting him to ask me this. I felt like I was naked in front of a crowd. I felt so exposed and put on the spot. I didn't want to lie to him, but I also did not want to hurt him. I gripped on to the edge of the chair even tighter and looked down at the ground trying to avoid everyone's stare.

I took a deep breathe and then looked up at Christian. His eyes were still fixed on me prompting me to answer his question. I had to lie to him, “I think they will enjoy it.”

“Great so I guess we are going to the beach,” Niall said with a smile.

“We still have to tell Rosalie and Monica,” I reminded them.

Niall and Janell looked at each other suspiciously and then looked back at me.

“Where are they?” I asked knowing that they were not here. Did everyone have a wild night last night and I did not even realize it. I mean we went to Disneyland what else could have happened besides taking a few pictures with mickey or sleeping beauty?

“Rosalie is back at the hotel with Louis and Harry. They went for some drinks after the theme park and Rosalie was too drunk to come back so Liam insisted she stayed over at the hotel,” Niall informed me.

“What about Monica?”

“She stayed at Danny's,” Janell said.

I nodded then stood up from my chair, “well I am going to go shower now.”

Christian smiled following me out the kitchen. I walked over to my bedroom to grab a fresh towel and Christian sat on my bed looking down at his hands. I looked through my drawers to find some fresh pair of underwear and a silent Christian stared into space.

“Are you ok,” I ask moving towards him.

He wraps my arms around my waist pulling me closer to him. I look down at him confused by his sudden change in mood. He looks stares at me and asks, “are you really alright with my family coming?”

Crap. He must of notice my discomfort with having his family coming over and I was not sure that I can lie to him this time.

He stared at me waiting for me to answer. I bit my lip trying to hide how nervous I was.

“It just makes me a little nervous,” I finally said.

He nodded then let out a sigh. He took my hands in his and said, “I thought so. If you'd like I can always just--”

“No,” I interrupted placing my hands on his shoulders, “I want you to come and bring your family. It should be fun.”

I needed him with me because his support was what I needed the most and if it meant meeting his family then that was something that I had to force myself to do.

“Ella if you don't feel comfortable with this then we can just say no.”

I shook my head and said, “I am just afraid they won't like me.”

Of course that was not what I was afraid of. I was mostly just afraid that meeting his family would mean that we were getting serious and I am not ready to get serious with him.

Christian gave me a sympathetic smile. His kind eyes staring into mine. I looked down at the ground to avoid his gaze because every time he stared at me I felt as if he was expecting for me to look at him the same way.

“I am sure they will love you,” he said lifting my chin up with his finger so that my eyes were meeting his.

I kindly smiled at him then walked away from him, “I am going to shower now.”

“Can I join you?” He asked.

His question caught me off guard. My body froze with fear. Was he serious? I am not ready to meet his family let alone shower with him. I don't think I would ever want to be that intimate with Christian. My palms started to sweat and my heart was speeding nervously. I am not ready for any of this to happen with him. I don't want to even think about us being together in that way.

“I...I,” I stuttered not knowing how to let him know I was not sure I was ready for that.

“Woah, Ella. I was kidding,” he said walking towards me. His hands gently placed on my shoulders trying to calm me down.

I took a deep breath and nodded, “Christian the thing is..” I trailed off.

He was staring into my eyes again and he was making it really hard for me to focus and tell him what I needed to say.

I closed my eyes and continued, “I am not sure I will ever be ready to be with you in that way.”

His eyebrows were scrunched together in confusion. His kind eyes staring into mine making me nervous. I was not sure how to explain to him that I was not thinking of having sex with him. I was not thinking of ever being in that state with him I was not ready to share him my past, but I did not want to hurt him by telling him I did not want to sleep with him. I just do not think he is the one I want to share that intimate part of my life with considering my last experience. I was just not ready to have sex yet.

“I don't think we are ever going to have sex Christian. I am just not sure I can do that,” I shyly said.

He took a step back bringing his hand up to his forehead in frustration. He let out a deep breathe then took a seat on my bed.

“I am sorry Christian, but I just can't do that,” I said.

He looked up at me and said, “I am not with you because I want to sleep with you Ella. It frustrates to know we can't share that but I will wait for you until you are ready.”

I smiled walking over to him and lightly kissed his cheek in appreciation. He smiled and I made my way towards the shower.
