Living With One Direction

What happens when Ella's parents die and she has to move to England to live with her cousin Liam Payne from the famous band One Direction?


6. Harry?


*Ella POV*


I wake up and feel arms around my waist. I turn around and see Niall’s sleeping face. He nose to touching me nose, he mouth to open slightly and he snoring softly. I turn back over and try to back to sleep.

I lay there for about ten more minutes, then decide to get up. I guess I’ll make some tea. I slowly move Niall’s arm and put a pillow in between them. I let go of his arm and he instantly tightens his arms around the pillow.

I slowly walk down the stairs into the kitchen. I put water in the kettle and put the kettle on the stove. I wonder what time it is. I never really looked. I look at the clock. It’s two in the morning! Oh well. I turn the TV on the counter on and watch How I Met Your Mother.


The kettle starts to whistle, so pour some water into a mug a put a tea bag in the mug too. Then I go back to watching TV. I’ve been watching TV for about 30 minutes when I hear to front door open and closer. I hear footsteps and then they stop in the living room. I walk into the living room and see Harry snogging some random girl on the couch. “Harry, what the hell are you doing?” I ask. Harry stops and looks at me.

“Hey Ella! This is..” Harry trails off and looks at the girl, “What’s your name?” The girl slaps him and pushes him off of her.

“It’s Sarah you jackass.” She says and stomps out the front door.

“Ow, that hurts.” Harry slurs as he rubs he’s cheek.

“Harry? Are you drunk?” I ask sitting down next to Harry on the couch.

“No.” Harry slurs, then he giggles, “Okay, maybe a little bit.”

“Okay, time for you to go to bed.” I grab his arm and put it around my shoulder.

“Ella.” Harry whispers halfway up the stairs.

“What Harry?” I whisper back. I open Harry’s bedroom door, drag him in, and lay him on his bed.

“I love you…” Harry says.

“Sure you do Harry.” I say pulls he’s bed sheets over him.

“I’m serious.” Harry whines.

“Harry you drunk.” I push he hair out of his eyes. “Go to sleep Harry.” I whisper. He slowly closes his eyes. I go get a glass of water and some pain killers on Harry’s nightstand.


I wake up on the couch and the TV is on. What time is it? 8:30! I late for school! Why didn’t Liam wake me up? I get up and walk into the kitchen and see a note a he fridge.



 Niall and I are at the store and Zayn and Louis are shopping. Harry is still in bed. He went clubbing last night and I believe he came home drunk. I’m still trying to figure out how he made it to his bed and why he didn’t have a girl with him. Anyway, I didn’t wake you up because I decide I’m not sending you to school today. You can yell at me when I get home.

Love Liam.

P.S. Please take care of Harry.


Damn it! I knew he was going to do something like this! I’m going to check on Harry.  I stomp up the stairs and into Harry’s room.

“Why does it sound like there’s a herd of elephants coming up the stairs?” Harry groans.

“Because you’re hung over” I say walking over to his bed and I sit on the edge. “Here eat these and drink this.” I say handing him a cup of water and the pain killers I put on his nightstand last night.

“Thanks Ella. Wait, did I sleep with anyone last night?” Harry asks.

“Well, you were going to, but, I walk in on you and you went to tell me what to girls name was but he forgot. So you asked her what her name was, she slapped you, and ran out the door.” I say.

“What was her name?” Harry asks

“Sarah.” I say.

“How did I get in my bed?” Harry asked.

“I helped you up here. I pretty much dragged you into your room.” I say standing up.

“Did I say anything weird?” Harry asked as he got out up bed, still in his clothes from last night.

“You said you loved me but I just figured sense you were drunk you were saying all kinds of weird stuff.” I say shrugging me shoulders.

“Yeah, um, I’m going to take a shower, okay?”

“Okay Harry. I’m going to make some breakfast.” I say then walk out of his room. I turn a corner to go down the stairs and run right into someone’s chest.

“I’m so sorry Ella. I wasn’t watching where I was going.” Louis says with wide eyes.

“Whatever.” Is all I say to him before I head down the stairs. I thought Zayn and Louis were shopping?

“Hey Ella!” Zayn says before he hugs me.

“Hey Zayn. I thought you and Louis were going shopping?” I say

“We are. Louis just forgot his wallet.” Zayn say as Louis comes running down the stairs.

“I got it! Let’s go!” Louis say fist pumping the air.

“Bye Ella!” Zayn says before they walk out the door.




Harry comes down the stairs about ten minutes later wearing grey sweatpants and a white tee shirt.

“Hey Ella. What you cooking?” Harry asks sitting down on one of the bar stools.

“Eggs.” I say as I put half the eggs on one plate and half on the other. I hand one to Harry and start eating off the other one.

“What’s wrong?” Harry asks. 

“I ran into Louis.” I say sighing.

“Oh.” Was all Harry said.

“Harry, do you remember anything from last night?” I blurt.

“No, why do you ask?” He asks as he stands up and put his plate in the sink.

“Just wondering.” I say.

“I don’t remember telling you I love you if that’s what you were thinking.” Harry says walking closer to me.

“I was just wondering if it was true or not because I mean it’s totally fine if it’s not true. You and I don’t really talk much so you don’t really know me that well and I don’t really know you. But if it’s true then I want to know why. I mean I’m a pretty boring person. I’m not pretty either. So…” I ramble. Harry chuckles.

“Like you say earlier. People say odd thing when their drunk.” Harry says then he walks out of the room.

“Weird! I said people said weird things!” I call after him.

That’s when Liam and Niall walk through the kitchen door with groceries bags lining both arms.

“I thought you weren’t going to let Niall go grocery shopping anymore?” I say crossing my arms over my chest.

“He begged and I wasn’t in the mood to fight with him.” Liam says put the bags on the floor.

“Are you in the mood to fight with me? Your note said I could fight with you when you got home.” I say. Niall starts looking back and forth between me and Liam.

Liam opens his mouth to say something but Niall cuts him off, “I’m go to watch football!” Then he runs out of the room.

“How’s Harry?” Liam starts putting away the food him and Niall bought.

“Harry’s fine. You didn’t answer my question Liam.” I say getting angrier and angrier by to second.

“Have you talked to Louis today?” Liam asks putting the milk in the fridge.

“Damn it Liam! Answer my fucking question!” I yell. Liam just continues to put food away.

“I’m guessing you haven’t talked to Louis today.”

“No I didn’t fucking talk to Louis today! Liam why did you let me go to school today. Huh! Why Liam?” I yell.

“Because Ella! I just didn’t okay!” Liam yells back this time.

“There has to be a reason! Other kid’s parents don’t just decide that their kids don’t have to go to school one day! Oh! Wait a second! You’re not my dad! So I guess it just doesn’t matter!” I yell, tears start to build up in my eyes and blur my vision.

“I didn’t want you to get bullied again! Okay! I know I’m not your dad Ella but I’m trying and if you don’t tell me what’s going on at school then I don’t know what to do. You can’t keep your feelings bottled up inside Ella. It’s not okay.” Liam’s voice gets softer.

“I know. It’s just hard being Liam Payne’s cousin and living with you guys. I get stared at all day.” I say

“Come here Ella.” Liam says opening his arms up. I fall into his arms and sob into his chest. “I sorry it has to be this way.” Liam whispers.

“It’s okay. Just don’t leave me.” I say

“You know what Ella. You should start talking to Louis again. I know you’re mad about him telling me but, he did it because he cares.” Liam says wiping my tears away from my face.

“I’ll talk to him when he gets home. I promise.” I say then go into the living room and sit next to Niall.

“Hey Ella. You okay?” He asks looking at me.

“Yeah I’m great. How have you been?” I ask and turn to look at Niall. He looks shocked.

“I-I’m doing great as well! Do you want to watch football with me?” Niall asks

“I’d love to.” I lean against his shoulder and he puts his arm around me.


“Zayn texted me and said that him and Louis are going to be home in a little bit. Can you go tell Liam?” Niall asks as he types a response to Zayn.

“Sure.” I jump up off the couch and run upstairs to Liam’s room. “Liam!” I yell.

“What?” Liam say looking at me.

“Zayn text Niall saying him and Louis were on their way home.” I say in one breath.

“Why couldn’t Niall come and tell me that? I mean Zayn did text him.” Liam says raising an eyebrow.

“I just I didn’t really think about that.” Liam just chuckles.

I run back down stairs and sit back down next to Niall.

“Honey! I’m home!” I hear Louis yell.

“You’re such an idiot.” Zayn says.

“Louis!” I yell and run to the door.

“Ella!” Louis screams he eyes go wide and he puts his hands up dropping all his bags.

“I missed you!” I yell and run to hug him. Louis slowly relaxes and hugs me back.

“I missed you too Ella.”


I’ve been lying in bed staring at my ceiling. I can’t sleep. I wonder if Louis is sleeping. I get up and slowly walk to Louis door. I peak my head and see his bed it empty. Damn. Ooo. Is Niall sleeping? I walk to Niall’s door and peak me head in. “Niall?” I whisper.

“Yeah?” An Irish accent says from behind me. I spin around to and see Niall standing right behind me.

“Um, I was wondering if I could sleep in your bed again.” I say.

“Um actually, I was going to sleep with Liam tonight. I watched a scary movie. Bad idea.” He says. I giggle.

“That’s okay. I’ll ask someone else.” I say

“I bet Harry’s in his room.” Niall says before walking away.

I tiptoe to Harry’s room and peck my head in. I see the blankets moving up and down every time Harry breaths.

“Harry?” I whisper.

“Yeah.” I hear him say his voice thick with sleep.

“Could I sleep in here tonight?” I ask.

“Sure.” I walk into his room. I’ve never been in here before. I lay down on the edge of the bed in clover myself up.

“Ella, if you’re sleeping in my bed, we're cuddling, and I can’t cuddling you if you that far away.” I scotch over a little. “I don’t bite.” Harry says. Then he grabs my waist and pulls me close to him. He wraps me arms around my waist with my back flat against his chest. “That’s better” He whispers. “Good night Ella.”

“Good night Harry.” I whisper. I slowly start to fall asleep when I hear.

“I love you Ella.” Then I fell asleep.
