Jennifer isn't the type of girl with natural beauty you read about in fairy tales and see in movies. She's very self conscious when she's away from home because of the things she's been through, the things that no one knows about. Who knew that one day, she would end up telling someone these deep, dark secrets? And who knew, that all this would happen because she crossed paths with the famous boy band, One Direction?


8. Tomlinson


-Jennifer's POV-


I woke up and looked at my window, which was blocked by my big, drawn curtains. It was really chilly, so I just laid in bed for a bit. I listened to the rain patter on in the window pain and wrapped myself up in my blankets. Olivia didn't come to wake me up or anything, so it must still be pretty early. I took my phone off the bedside table and looked at the time. It was only 8 o'clock, must be the jetlag. I went over my dream in my head. I met One Direction last night, found out Kevin died, and cried. Then Harry Styles came and knocked on my door to check on me? Everything seemed like such a blur, it all happened too fast I couldn't keep up. Then, it felt more and more realistic. No, it couldn't have been a dream, but did it really happen? I unlocked my phone and checked my contacts, and there, right under the "S" category, was Harry Styles's name and number. My heart raced as I tapped his name.

Woah. I have Harry's number in my phone, and he cared enough to check on me. I rolled around in bed just thinking about everything. I decided to get up, because I needed some air. I felt my face and realized it was swollen from crying so much yesterday, but then I thought of Kevin and began to tear up.

Stop Jennifer. Suck it up. You can't just keep crying forever.

I slid out of bed slowly and lazily like a sloth, and went to the bathroom. I realized I was still wearing the same thing as yesterday, and my hair was a complete mess. Jesus Christ, I wonder what Harry thought of me when he saw me this morning. What time was that anyway? It must've been at least 6 am, why did he get up so early? Oh my gosh I feel horrible, he ended up staying up because of me and he had to get up so early. I took my phone again and decided to just gather up the courage to talk to him. I sent him a message telling him good morning. Then I went to the bathroom to wash up and change; it looked really cold outside, so I decided to layer my clothes today. I took my hair out of the messy bun and realized my hair had naturally curled itself, so that was pretty cool. 

(Jennifer's outfit:

For an hour I just walked around my hotel room, stretched, went on Tumblr, responded to messages about Kevin, up until I got hungry. I decided to go downstairs and see what food the hotel offers, so I grabbed my shoes and ran outside. While I was on one foot hopping and trying to get my shoe on, I bumped into someone and couldn't find my balance quick enough, so I fell face flat onto the ground. 

"Are you alright?" A male voice with a British accent asked.

I looked up and realized I just crashed into Louis Tomlinson. 


I quickly picked myself up from the ground and answered, "Yeah I'm fine," Wow I'm so dumb. Why did this happen to me, why now? I just wanted some food and to get back to my hotel room, why why why did Louis have to see me like this?

I think he must've recognized me too, because he quickly asked again, "Oh hi Jennifer! Are you feeling better? What are you doing up so early? I'm so sorry," Oh. He must be referring to the Kevin thing. 

"Yeah I'm fine, thanks for asking. Why aren't you with Harry and them? " I asked him. He said, "Oh Harry, Zayn, and Niall have an interview today, Liam and I are just staying here," 

"Oh I see. Um, I'm about to go downstairs to get some food, have you eaten yet?" I asked.

"No I haven't, I was about to until I realized I left my phone in my room so I came upstairs to get it. Do you want to eat together? Liam's is still asleep and I don't want to wake him up, he can get quite cranky in the morning.," Louis chuckled. 

'Yeah sure! I'll just wait here and we can go downstairs together," I smiled at him. My face felt so weird smiling, ugh my eyes sting. He nodded and quickly walked to his room. I watched him walk away. Louis is so cute oh my gosh. He was wearing black jeans and sneakers, along with a striped black and white shirt underneath a navy blue jacket. He was also wearing a slouchy gray beanie and he looked adorable in it.

"Okay I'm back!" Louis said, jogging towards me. We got into the elevator together and he let me walk first. He asked me how I slept, and we just made small talk while walking into the buffet room and choosing a small table near the corner. After we got our food, Louis looked at my plate and asked, "Is that all you're going to eat? A bagel and cream cheese?" I nodded.

"I'm vegetarian, so there's not a lot of options for me here, and I don't really eat eggs, haha," I answered. He seemed fascinated by the fact that I was vegetarian. The poor guy had to keep his head down the entire time to avoid being recognized, since he didn't want to draw attention to himself. We ate in silence for a bit, so I decided to start the conversation this time.

"Sooo, how long are you guys staying here? Think about Christmas yet?" I asked cheerfully, which was definitely a change from how I've been feeling lately.

"We're staying here for a week and a half, doing some interviews and having a concert then going home to celebrate Christmas with our families. Although it'd be a miracle if Liam would even wake up before then," Louis snorted, looking at his watch. I laughed.

"Haha, this is nothing! I usually wake up so late compared to Liam, you wouldn't even believe me if I told you. I'm staying for a week and a half too!" I said. 

Louis and I talked and ate for about half an hour, and then we decided to go back upstairs before anyone else noticed him. Once we got back up to the seventh floor, I asked what he was going to do for today. Louis rolled his eyes and said, "Well I have to wake Mr. Sleeping Beauty first, and then we're probably going to go downstairs to eat breakfast again. I'm not sure what we'll do for the day though, maybe Liam and I will go out. What about you?" 

"I don't know either. Olivia is the woman who's going to be taking be around so I'll go knock on her door and see what we're doing today. I think she's going to take me around Manchester for a bit, but I'm not sure," I responded with a sigh. Louis smiled a warm smile at me, and said, "Well why don't you go do that? Here, give me your phone so I can give you my number and you can give me yours. You can message me any time, who knows when the next time I'll see you will be?"

We exchanged numbers, and I asked if I could hug him before he left and he smiled cheekily and pulled me in for a warm embrace. I felt my heart rate speed up as I took in Louis's scent. He smelled fresh, and I still couldn't get over the fact that I was hugging Louis Tomlinson. After that, he went back to his room and I went to go see what Olivia was up to. It felt nice talking to him, he was a funny guy and I felt as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Plus, I have his number. Oh my goodness.

I knocked on Olivia's door, and she opened it with her hair a wild mess, standing in her pajamas. 

"Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry Jennifer! I overslept and I-"

"Don't worry about it! Take as long as you need, I need to call my parents anyway, and I can go get you food if you want," I interrupted her. She smiled gratefully at me and said, "That would be amazing, thank you so much. Sorry again. We're going to go shopping today! It'll be fun," 

"Cool! And it's okay," I reassured her, "I'm going to be back with some food after making my calls, so take your time," Olivia smiled sheepishly at me and closed the door. I called my mom and she comforted me about Kevin, and I almost started crying again until I told myself to stop because I was in the middle of the hallway and I had makeup on. I went downstairs afterwards and got Olivia two pieces of toast and a big, ripe peach. I hoped that shopping would lift my spirits today, but they were already much better than yesterday, considering I just ate breakfast, hugged, and exchanged numbers with Louis Tomlinson. 

Then I remembered what I was wearing when I first met him- the Tomlinson sweater. I groaned out loud at how embarrassing that was, then hoped that he still liked me. Why am I so awkward. Sigh. I wonder what Harry's doing right now.
