That's Why I'm Single

Daniella is done with boys. She finally has had enough after her now ex-boyfriend, Cody cheats on her for some other girl. She vows to get a one year break from just plain everything-- guys, everything. What happens when she meets boyband member Harry Styles?


2. First Night

I heard the microwave go off and I went to it. I pulled out the popcorn and poured it into one of the bowls the hotel provided us. 

"Want some?" I asked him. He was wearing a white v-neck shirt and tight skinny jeans. He shook his head. "You sure?" he shook his head again. "By the way I'm Daniella."

I sat on the couch. He sat beside me. 

"Harry, Harry Styles." He replied. "Aren't you going to ask why I came here?"

"Oh, yeah." I said, embarrassed. "Sorry, lots have been going on um, so why are you here?"

"I was getting mobbed my fans.. they were getting too crazy-- yours was the nearest room."

"Hm, they're really crazy." I could hear the loud screaming of the fans outside the door. "Don't you get annoyed?"

"No." He said. I raised an eyebrow. "Okay, sometimes-- but I can't really blame them!"

"Sounds kind of selfish how you said that."

"N-no I don't mean it like that I--"

"It's okay, I was only joking." I said it with no emotion whatsoever. I like One Direction yeah, and do you know how much girls would kill to be me? I'm talking to Harry frikin Styles right now. One on one. Yet, I am not fangirling around him or anything. Maybe I just still can't get over what Cody did.

"Are you okay?" He asked while running his fingers through his brown curly locks. His emerald green eyes shimmered against the light. 

"Yeah. I'm fine." I answered, forcing a smile. 

"Okay yeah, sure. I know you're not okay. I've played that card thousands of times!" He gave me a wide grin.

"Yeah, are you playing that card right now?" I asked. The grin from his face faded and no comment. "Okay, well make yourself feel at home. I'm going to watch a movie. You can stay here till my friend, Shannen comes back. Let's just say she's not a big fan of One Direction."

"Why is that?"

"I don't know, she says she feels like you guys are always pointing out her imperfections."

"Oh..." he says quietly. I never really knew how sensitive he was, for a guy. "We don't mean to--"

"It's fine, Harry. Are you sure you don't want some popcorn?" I asked again.

"Nope, management is forcing me and the boys to go on a strict diet-- no popcorn for today, nope!"

"Whatevs." I said. I picked out a movie from the list they have on the tv. IT was awkward having Harry right beside me on the couch. I could smell his cologne, and he smelt quite good. I noticed I was staring at him and immediately stopped. He gave me a small smile, which in a way said "I caught you staring at me. Haha, that was cute." A tingling in my tummy began to form. I don't want to like Harry, especially right now.

"Hey, I don't hear any screaming anymore." I told him. "You can go now if you want, it don't matter to me."

"Nah, I'll stay, I miss these kinds of talks." He answered. I looked back at him with questioning eyes. "You're the first girl that has ever really treated me normal not 'Harry Styles from One Direction omygod' . I haven't really talked to a normal girl like this for a long time."

"Did you just call me a normal girl?" I burst out laughing. "Don't make this seem special, I would've acted different if I was in a different mood-- I don't care who you are, I'll treat you like how I treat anybody."

"Feisty. I like that." He says with a laugh. I couldn't help but give a small laugh. He was kind of funny. "Hey, do you want to go somewhere?"

"What?" I questioned. He gave me a wide grin.

"I don't know, it'll be fun!"

"Harry, we just met."

"I don't really care, I like you."

His words shocked me. He blinked a few times realizing what he said. "As friends!" he added, laughing awkwardly at the end.

"Where we going?" 

"I don't know. There's Disneyland." 

My face grew into a super big happy grin hearing that. I loved Disneyland, and I remembered going there with my grandfather all the time. I do miss my grandpa. I pray for him all the time. 

"CAN WE HARRY? CAN WE PLEASE? I HAVEN'T BEEN THERE FOR A LONG TIME!" I shrieked in excitement. I noticed my behaviour and immediately shook it off. "I mean, it don't matter but, yeah we should totally." I said cooly.

"Disneyland it is!" 


We arrive at Disneyland. We got in for free, thanks to Harry Styles. I felt eyes watching me as I walk with him around the theme park. A couple of girls walk towards Harry and I. They looked like they were around 14 years old.

"Harry, can you please sign this for us, omygod I just love you." One girl said. Harry gave his signature smirk and took out a sharpie from his pocket. This guy carried a sharpie with him wherever? I mean, it's like he knows it's bound to happen. I probably would've too if I was a  major celebrity.

"Can you also take a picture with us?" one of the girls asked. Harry nodded. The girl looked at me and handed me her iPhone. "Can you take a picture of us three?"

"Yeah, sure!" I said with a smile. I took the picture for them and they thanked me. As they slowly walked away I overhear a part of their conversation.

"I bet you she's a slut management hired to date Harry." one of them said.

"It's obvious enough, Sarah." The other one replied.

I thought of Cody and Maddie. If only they knew. Besides, I'm not even dating Harry. I try to hold back the tears as Harry and I kept walking.

"Do you want me to talk to those girls?" He asked me. I guess he heard them too.

"No Harry, I'm fine really!" I forced a smile again. A tear fell down my cheek and I quickly wiped it away.

"No, you are not okay. I'm calling them-- Hey, you both!" 

The two girls turned around. A smile went on their face as they realized Harry Styles was calling them over. They rushed to his aid. 

"I didn't like the way you talked about my friend, Daniella like that. You're lucky I was even nice enough to take a picture with you guys and sign some stuff for you both." He scolded them.

"We're sorry Harry..." The girls said. 

"It's fine. Now, let's forget this happened, okay? Take care, and don't do that again!"

The two girls left and looked at Harry one last time. I just stared at him with my eyes wide open. He shrugged while giving a cheeky smile.

"Wow, you really didn't have to do that..." I said. "And you're awefully nice."

"Yeah well, I don't want to ruin my nice reputation. You know, I guess just treat others the way you want to be treated."

I kept walking with him around. I didn't know what else to say. But then something hit me.

"Why haven't we been on any rides yet?" I asked him. He bit his lip.He shook some of his curls out of the way of his eyes.

"I'm kind of scared of roller coasters." He said to me. I smiled.

"Me too."

"Then why did you want to go to Disneyland?"

I was quiet for a while.

"Just memories of being here." 

"Want to go and grab something to eat?"

"I've been waiting for you to say that. YES." 

We both laughed and we walked back to his car. His car was really nice. It was an Audi R8 Coupe. A silver one. It was shiny and nice. As I stepped into the car, the smell inside even smelt good. I looked at his air freshener. It was vanilla.

"I love the smell of vanilla. I also just love this car." I said to him. He gave a soft chuckle. 

"Where to go?" He asked me. 

"Anywhere, really." I shrugged. "I was very young when I came to L.A. so I don't really remember much, umm Mcdonalds?"

"No, no, it's my treat, no common fast-food place just--" his phone rang, interrupting his sentence. "Just a second." He tells me. 

"Hello?" he says. "NOW? Can it wait later? I know but. Can I just. okay. I'll be right there."

"I'm guessing we're not going to eat." I said to him. 

"I'm sorry." He says. 

"No it's fine, I understand." I said. He looked a bit down. He kept driving. We reached the hotel and he parked on a nearby parking place. 

"I'll walk you to your room." He says. I smiled back at him politely. We both walk out of the car and first thing I see are flashes of light.

"Harry! Harry!" Men were calling out. He just smiled at the cameras. I didn't know what to do. 

"Just smile." He whispered into my ear. I did what he said. I didn't really give them a posing smile but mostly just like a polite smile. When we got into the hotel, the flashing stopped. 

"That was crazy." I said to him.

"Trust me... that wasn't even bad." He said to me with a smirk. I thought of how this boy can live with all that and still, he's the nicest and most down-to-earth boy I've met. We walked up to my hotel room and inserted my hotel key card in.

"Hey." He said, calling my attention. I looked at him. "We should do this again. I didn't like how I had to leave early." He gave me a smile. I couldn't help but smile back.

"Sure thing, Harry." I said.

"Tomorrow?" He asked. 

"I don't know." I shrugged. "Shannen might have plans with me tomorrow." 

"Oh okay, have a good night."

"Good night, Harry." We both smiled awkwardly at each other. I opened the door. I went in and closed the door behind me. 

What the hell just happened. 

Thoughts whirled up in my head about this day. I was glad Harry didn't try to make a move or anything with me. With all those bad rumors going around about him, I wonder how they were made because Harry seems nothing like it. 

"Where the hell have you been?!" Shannen yelped. I jumped, I didn't know she was sitting st the black leather couch before me in the hotel's living room. "It's 11:00 pm?!"

"It's complicated." I said, trying to hide my smile. "How was your day, or I mean night?" I asked her. 

Her face now laid a wide smile. Not an expert, but I think I can already tell she met a guy.

"It's complicated." She said with a smile. We both laughed. "I'm tired now though, and I've drank a few drinks. The only reason I've stayed up longer is because I was worried where you were."

"I'm going to head to bed soon as well. Night, Shannen."

"Night." She says, as she began to walk to her assigned bedroom. After, I decided to go to my assigned bedroom and change into my pajamas and remove the make-up from my face. 

I decided to watch a movie, since I actually am not even really that tired. I decided to watch "The Hunger Games."  I was bored okay, I don't usually watch chick flicks but for some reason I felt like it today.

After maybe an hour passed by, I noticed a knock on my door. I looked at Shannen's bedroom door, if it have woken her up. Nope, doesn't look like it. I walked to the front door and opened it. It was one of the people that worked in the hotel, with a tray of food. A nice juicy steak and some fries. 

"I didn't order this..." I said to him. He gave me a polite smile.

"I know you didn't. Mr. Styles did." He answered. He gave me a piece of folded paper. "He also wants me to give you this. Have a good night and hope you liked the meal, ma'am."

"Thanks." I said. He put the tray of food on the table and closed the door. I quickly unfold the piece of paper.

Sorry for leaving you hungry. Hope this helps.

xx Harry

p.s. I had a fun time with you tonight! Haven't been in one of these for a loooong tiiimme. :)

After that note, a set of numbers appeared. I realized he gave me his number. I ate my meal feeling good. I'm not going to let my feelings get away though. Besides, I made a promise that I'm not going to date anybody for a year. Besides, Harry is just being nice... right?
