5. 1 vs. 7

Carter's POV

I just stared at Harry. I didn't know how to react! He just asked (well, told) me to go live with him! What should I do? "I uhhh.... Have to... Ummm..." I couldn't think of what to say. "Go to the bathroom!" I said quickly. I ran out of my room and to the bathroom. I didn't really have to go, I just needed to think. He just freaking asked me to live with him for 6 months and I just met him! I was pacing back and forth in the small bathroom. I stopped pacing for a minute and looked at myself in the mirror 'wow I look so hot right now' I thought. I had on one of my brothers t-shirts so it was huge one me, seeing as he is taller and much more built than me. I also had on shorts that you couldn't even see, because the length of the shirt was so long. I turned on the sink to cold water and splashed some on my face. I then dried my face off with the towel by the sink. I felt somewhat refreshed. I walked out of the bathroom and in to 'the room'. (still not calling it my room.) As I walked in, I didn't see Harry. I needed to think more so I didn't really care that he left. I lied down on my bed just staring at the sealing. Slowly I fell into a dreamless night.

(What she was wearing.)


I woke up around 6 and just lied there. thinking till about 7,  I decided that I will go on a run this morning to clear my head even more. I hadn't slept very well from what Harry had told me last night. Trying to be quiet I grabbed my Nike running shorts, and my favorite Nike running shirt. I didn't want to wake Jacob and Blake up so I walked out and into the bathroom I was pacing in last night. I got dressed, put my hair up in a pony tail, brushed my teeth, put my contacts in, and went back to the room. I put my pjs on the bed, then grabbed my Nike socks and my Nike running shoes. Clearly I don't like Nike, (note the sarcasm) they're my favorite. By 7:20ish I was ready to go downstairs.


I walked down to the kitchen to write a note saying I was going on a run and would be back. When I entered the kitchen Harry was sitting at the island. He didn't see me walk in so I stayed quiet. He was wearing jogging shorts and a t-shirt. Was he going on a run as well? I then chose that I would act like I just walked in. I waited a second then re-walked in, as I did so, Harry looked up at me then gave me a very, very, small smile. I give one back about the same size. Then he returned his his attention to his bowl of cereal. I walked over to the fridge and pulled out the milk. When I turned around, Harry was looking at me. When I found him staring he turned his head back to his bowl. I grabbed a glass and poured myself some milk. "You can't just have a glass of milk before a run." Harry said without even lifting his head an inch. "Why do you say that?" I asked. I never really eat before I run or anything. "You won't be able to go very far. You need the energy." "Okay Mr. Hot Shot, let's go for a run and see who can go farther." I say putting the glass in the sink. Once we walked outside I tied my shoelaces up and jumped up and down as I waited for Harry to finish tying his. We started running in to town and I was doing great. There was no way I was going to let him bet me.


We got back to the house about 45 minutes later and I had beaten Harry. As we walked in the door, Blake jumped on me, making me fall over, with him on top of me. Jacob came running out of nowhere and joined the pile. Harry just started laughing at us. (More so laughing at me.) I was trying to push them off when the doorbell rang. Harry walked over to the door to answer it, still cackling. When Harry opened the door, all I heard were guys laughing. 'Please don't tell me it's more guys!' I thought to myself. They walked in one by one. They all looked at me on the floor with Blake and Jacob still on me, next thing I knew there was more weight being added on top of me! After about 5 minutes I was able to wiggle my way out from everyone. No one saw me crawl out, probably from everyone laughing so much, they didn't notice. I was going to see how long it took till they noticed, so I walked upstairs to the room and ran threw a quick shower. When I got out I walked to the top of the stairs to see they were in the same spot. I got dressed in clean Nike shorts, because it was a pretty nice day, and a Nike t-shirt that says "YOU HAD A CHANCE" and on the back it says "UNTIL I SHOWED UP". Harry will be so lucky to see me in normal clothes. I walked back downstairs to see them still in a pile. So I thought I would join. I jumped on Harry's back seeing as he was the one on top. When I did so he whipped his head around from the extra weight, it was to funny the look on his face, almost looked like he saw a ghost. After everyone was off the floor, we went into the living room.


I was sitting on of the couches in the living room with Blake and Jacob. On the other couch was Harry, a guy with messy hair, and one with almost a buzz cut but it looked like it had grown out a little. There was a one with black hair sitting in a chair by the couches, and a blonde with brown tips sat on the armrest of the other couch. "Carter," I interrupted Harry in the middle. "What did I tell you to call me?" He just laughed a little, but the blonde was laughing like it was the funniest thing ever. "Cat," "Much better." I said smiling, that made everyone laugh. "Cat, Blake, Jacob meet the lads. This is Louis, Liam, Zayn, and Niall." He said, pointing to each one. They all said their Hi's and Hellos, but the one that stood out to me the most was Niall. He didn't have a British accent but... an Irish one? "Hello" I said. They all just looked at me for a minute. I didn't know what to do. They were just staring at me. "You didn't tell us she was American!" Louis yelled at Harry. "He told you about me?" I asked, a little shocked. "Yes, he told us a little about you. Not a lot though." Zayn said. Harry looked a little embarrassed. "Any who. This is Blake. And this is Jacob."I said. They said Hey's and Hellos. We then talked for a while.


"So Harry did you tell her? Or will I?" Louis said looking at Harry, then me, then back to Harry. "What?" I raised my eyebrows. Louis was about to say something when Harry jumped in. "Yeah I told her last night." He said looking at me with a small smile. That's when I remembered our conversation last night. "What do you say?" Liam asked me. "I say..." I paused for dramatic effect. "Sounds like fun!" I finished. We talked a bit longer, when my stomach start talking to me, wanting food. "Hey I'm going to get some food." I said. "FOOD!!!" Niall yelled loudly, and I jumped like, 10 feet in the air. "Well that just scared the living crap out of me." I gasped, holding my chest. That made everyone laugh so I walked into the kitchen. I was just about to grab the strawberries when I heard someone walk in. I looked to see Harry. "Hey we decided that we are going out to eat. Want to come?" "Why not, I'm starving." "You should have had more to eat this morning." "Well I still beat your butt with only having a glass of milk!" I walked back into the the kitchen to see everyone talking and laughing. "I only let you win!"Harry yelled after me. "Sure, I bet you did!" I yelled back, sarcastically. "What are you guys talking about?" Louis wondered. "We went on a run this morning and Harry's upset that I beat him." I replied. "Wait you raced Cat?" Blake asked. I knew what was going to happen next. I was trying so hard not to laugh. "Yeah, so?" I couldn't hold it in any longer, I bursted out laughing. Jacob started laughing with me, I'm sure we look like freaks. "She was our schools star athlete." Blake said. "Aww thank you Bake." I would call Blake 'Bake' sometimes as a nickname. "Okay let's get food I'm starving!" I said.
