Something Unexpected

Samantha and Gia are ice skating one night and Sam thinks she spots Harry in a crowd.


3. Meeting the Boys

Samantha froze, wide-eyed. Gia peered around Samantha to see Harry, seemingly unsure of himself.

Samantha turned, “Yes?” Harry’s lopsided grin caused her to sigh inwardly. 

“Would you girls like to join us for a drink?”

“Yes, definitely,” Gia interjected.  “Hi, I’m Gia.” She stood and shook his hand.

“Harry. Nice to meet you.”

The girls followed Harry and Gia squeezed Samantha’s arm with excitement. 

“Boys, these are Samantha and Gia.”

The four guys smiled and introduced themselves and Niall got a chair from the next table.  “Gia, would you like to sit?”

“Sure, thank you,” Gia smiled.  She sat next to him and watched Harry pull out a chair for Samantha. 

“Here you go, babe,” Harry said. 

Samantha blushed, “Thanks.” 

“So are you girls in Uni?” Louis asked.

“Yes,” Gia answered.  “We are seniors at Santa Clara; it’s close by.”

“Is that your last year then?” Liam said. “The U.K. has different names for levels.”

“Yeah, it’s our last year,” said Gia.

“That’s great. Congrats in advance.”

“Thanks,” the girls answered together.

An hour passed, filled with stories and jokes.  Samantha couldn’t believe she was with One Direction and not acting like a complete crazed moron.  And they were totally normal like her guy friends, but with irresistible accents; everything the boys said sounded perfect.

“What are you girls up to tonight?” Zayn asked.

“Getting dinner and watching a movie at home,” Samantha said.  “What about you?”

“We’re staying in too since we have the show tomorrow,” Harry said. 

“Would you like to hang out?” said Louis.  “We can order room service, watch a movie…” Samantha didn’t miss his elbow at Harry’s ribs.

“Yeah, you should stay,” Niall said. 

The rest of the boys smiled and nodded their heads and the girls made eye contact. 

“We’re down,” Gia said. 

“Lovely,” Liam said.

They chatted on the way to the elevator bank and Harry didn’t leave Samantha’s side.  “I’m happy you’re—”

“Oh my gosh it’s Zayn!” screeched a voice to their right.

Sam and Gia stepped back as three girls rushed towards the boys.  The oldest ran to Zayn and grabbed him in a hug.  The middle one zeroed in on Harry and held his hands. The youngest stayed close to Liam and smiled up at him.

“Are you sisters?” Liam asked her.

“Yes,” she shyly answered.

“You’re very cute. How old are you?”

“I’m eight. You’re my favorite.”

“Oh thank you darling. How about we do a group picture? Is that alright?”

“Of course, thank you so much!” said the oldest.  She held her phone out to Samantha. “Can you take our picture please?”

“Sure, no problem.” Samantha looked at the guys through the photo screen and then above it and smiled as she took the picture.

“They are so sweet,” Gia whispered.

“Best boys ever,” Samantha added and handed the phone back to the girl.  Her insides melted as the boys hugged the girls and said their goodbyes.

“Sorry about that,” Harry said joining Samantha again.

“Oh we don’t mind. It’s actually really cute,” she said.  “I love how you are with fans.” 

“Well, they’re the reason we have this life,” Harry said, placing his hand on the small of her back, guiding her into the elevator.
