6. I've Been a Little Busy

Carter's POV

After lunch we all decided that we would walk around town. There was a park nearby that we started walking to. I was on Blake's back, while everyone else was walking. I just about fell asleep when Blake jumped, making me jump on his back. "Thanks a lot I was just about to sleep!" I whined. He just laughed, making me shake on his back. Once we got to the park, hardly anyone was there. We were walking around when we started to hear screaming. I looked behind to see a mob of girls running our way. "Run!!!" Harry yelled over the girl's earsplitting screams. I jumped off Blake's back and we took off running. We ran in to town and I had an idea. "Follow me!" I bellowed loudly so they all could hear me over the screaming. We turned a corner, then ran into an ally. We all backed up against the wall, and we watched as the girls ran by. "Okay we need to get out of here." Liam whispered. "Wait what's going on? cause to me it sounds like you get what's happening here." I whispered in confusion. They looked at each other like they didn't know who should tell. Harry cleared his throat "Okay we're in the world famous boy band One Direction. Did you not know?" Harry asked, surprised. I just stared at him, I knew he looked oddly familiar, all of them did. I had no clue what to think, so I just walked away.

Harry's POV

She just walked away... that was it, she just left, not one word said. "Hey lads I'm going to follow her. You guys take the car, we'll walk." I told them, tossing the keys to Liam. "Here you might need this." Niall said taking off he's jacket and giving it to me. I put on the jacket and pulled the hood up. I walked out of the ally and looked left and right. I saw Carter down the road so I ran up behind her, leaving some room between us. I thought it might be a good idea to give her some space. I was following Carter for five minutes when she walked into an old thrift store.

Carter's POV

I felt as if someone was following me, so I walked into an old thrift shop. I made my way over to some racks of clothing and grabbed a few shirts. As I walked to the changing rooms I looked behind me to see that someone in a gray hoody, but they didn't have any clothes. I walked into one of the rooms and closed the door. I then threw the clothes on the bench in the little changing room. I got down on the floor and looked out the little crack under the door. I saw two shoes walk into the room across from mine. I ran out of the room and out of the shop. I ran down the street and into an old bakery. When I walked in the old lady behind the counter smiled at me so I smiled back. "Hi um I was wondering if you had a bathroom?" I said. "Yes dear, right around that corner." "Thank you." I walked to the bathroom door. Before walking, in I looked out the front window. When I did so I saw the person and they saw me. I ran in the bathroom and closed the door. I looked for a window and found one. It was just big enough for me to climb through. I climbed out the window and just as I was about to drop down from the window when the door opened and that some person was there. He looked at me and started making his way over to me. I dropped down right before he got to me. I started running down the little ally and back out to the street. Before I got out of the ally he yelled out "CARTER!!" I stopped in my tracks and turned around. He had his head stuck out the window, then took off the hood that was on his head. It was Harry? "What the heck! Trying to scare the crap out of me!?" I yelled at him. I ran back to the window. "Why were you following me?" I asked him as I looked up at him. "Uhhh just wanted to make sure you didn't get lost or hurt." He said back. "You know you're good at making tracks." He smiled at me. "Thanks." I said back with a small smile. "Hey meet me out front will ya?" "Yeah I will." I then walked around the building and met Harry.


We walked around, talking. It was starting to sink in that he was famous and all. We had been quiet for some time now and it was bugging me. "So you're famous?" I said trying to start a conversation. "Haha. Yeah me and the lads are famous. You didn't know?" He asked. "Well not at first. You did look familiar, I just couldn't put my finger on where I had seen you." I replied full of truth. "How could you not know who I was? Everyone knows me!" He whined jokingly. "Haha. I've been a little busy to keep up with all the boy bands. Hahaha." I couldn't help but laugh at the end. "Well what do you say? Will you still come live with me for six months? Even if I am famous?" I laughed even more at the last part. "Well you being famous is a little bit of a bum, but I guess I can put up with it." I tried not to laugh. "Well I'm glad to hear that you will put up with me being famous." He said, nudging me in the side and making me laugh because I was very ticklish. The next thing I knew we had walked all the back to the house.


When we walked in, I was tackled into a huge hug. Not by one, but by two sets of arms. “We missed you Kit-Cat!” Jacob said in a high pitch voice making him sound more girly. I couldn’t help but laugh. “Don’t you ever do that to us again!” Blake said in a high pitched voice as well. Making me laugh even more. “Why are you guys talking like that?” I asked finally catching my breath. “We’re talking like this cause we are being the sisters you never had!” Blake said, making me laugh again. “Well stop, I would like for you guys just to be the brothers that are there for me!” I said back. “Fine we will be the Bros that have been there for you.” Jacob said in his normal voice. “I don’t know, I might just keep this voice.” Blake said still in a high pitched voice. “Ok, let me know how it goes with the girls.” I said at him. “Good point.” he said back in his normal voice. We all walked into the living room where everyone else was. We sat on one of the couches and we all just talked till the doorbell went off.
