6. Chapter #6

*Leigh's P.O.V.*

-The Next Day (Day 3)-

I woke up on time this morning. I got downstairs all ready to go for the day and I wasn't even the last one. Ashley and Zayn were. Knowing Ashley, she always takes forever. If you tell her to come in thirty minutes it'll be an hour. I've learned over the years to tell her to come thirty minutes earlier than you really want her to come. And after observing Zayn for the past two days, okay that sounded creepy, but he seems like the very clean type. Nice hair, nice outfits, nice face. No flaws on that boy at all, ever, and that must take a while.

Once I finished eating, I had to go find everyone else. I was really looking forward to jumping on the trampoline. Childish, I know, but I was. I found them all watching NASCAR on TV. They were getting really into it too. Screaming and jumping all over the place. I kept yelling at them, but obviously none of them heard me, or saw me for that matter.

"GUYS!!!" They finally looked my way. "I'm going to jump on the trampoline now, if any of you wanna come."

"I will!" Harry walked over towards me.

Of course Harry would come, of course.

"Any other takers?" I asked hoping someone, anyone, else would want to come. No one responded.

"Looks like it's just me and you." Harry smiled at me.

"Guess so," I said blandly.

We went outside and I kicked my flip flops off and climbed up onto the trampoline. It was taller than I thought. Once I got on it, it was bigger than I thought too. It was probably one of the biggest trampolines I've ever seen.

"This is a really big trampoline!" I said as I was jumping up and down as high as I could.

"We got the biggest one so we could all jump on it." Harry replied.

Well that made sense.

We were jumping in silence for a while. I decided I might as well make the best of being stuck with Harry.

"I bet I can jump higher than you." I challenged.

"I beg to differ."

We both started jumping as high as we could. I think Harry had an unfair advantage, as he was taller than me.

"You're taller, so that doesn't count."

"But I still won."

"Because you're tall."

"But I won."

"If I was the same height as you, I would've won."

"Can't we just see who's feet are the farthest from the ground?"

I guess that could work. We both started jumping again, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't catch up to him.

"I win." Harry said with a smug grin on his face.

I just decided I wouldn't say anything. There was no point in starting a silly argument. I started jumping around the outside of the trampoline, going in circles. Soon enough, Harry was chasing me. I couldn't jump fast enough so I started running. Then being me, I tripped and fell on my face. I burst out laughing though.

"Are you okay?" Harry offered me a hand. I grabbed onto it and pulled myself up. I couldn't talk because I was laughing so hard, so I nodded my head telling him I was fine. Then I dashed off running around in circles again. I was still laughing so I couldn't go as fast. When I laugh and run at the same time, I can never go fast. I was still managing to keep away from Harry in this little chase game we had going. I guess Harry got tired of it though because I saw him cut through the trampoline, not going all the way around. Then he tackled me.

"CHEATER!" I screamed at him. "Get off me Harry!"

He rolled off me, laughing. "I didn't cheat. We didn't even make rules to this game!"

"Well I did, and you cheated."

"Leigh, you are really weird."

"Look who's talking!" I poked him in the stomach. It actually hurt my finger a bit. His abs were harder than I thought.

"WOAH what's going on out here?!" Louis called from the doorway.

"We can hear you guys from inside." Liam added.

"Yeah we're okay, Harry's just a BIG FAT CHEATER."

"Harry cheated on you?" Louis asked.

"What? No! He...ugh never mind." I wasn't in the mood for explaining to them right now. I hopped down from the trampoline, put my flip flops back on, and went inside. I felt like I always had to walk away from them, that's all I've been doing the past few days. I just don't know what else to do.

*****

The next morning I was awoken by Ashley.

"Leigh! Get up we're going shopping in an hour!"

An hour? Ashley knows I take like twenty-five minutes to get ready. I took a shower last night so I was pretty much all set.

"You can't let me sleep for a few more minutes?"

"Your breakfast will get cold! I made eggs and bacon."

The only reason I got up was because I wanted the eggs and bacon. Is that sad?

I got all dressed and ready. We were only going to the mall. I just hope we don't get attacked by fans. I'm sure they won't be happy seeing me or Ashley with One Direction or as they like to say 'their boys'. Knowing fans of any celebrity, they never like seeing other people with the celebrity. I guess everyone was considered a threat to them.

When I went downstairs, everyone else was waiting for me. I didn't take that long to get ready and come downstairs, why was everyone already there? Ashley could see the confused look on my face.

"I made everyone hurry up so we could go early. Here, have a granola bar for breakfast." She threw me a granola bar.

"Um thanks?" She knows I hate granola bars.

She shoved everyone out the door. "COME ON GUYS, WE HAVE TO HURRY!"

"Why exactly?" I asked. "It's not like two minutes within opening, everything will sell out, Ash."

She didn't answer. She knew it was true. Ash was just a mega shopoholic. I always tell her, 'If shopping was in the Olympics, you would set the world record and have endless amounts of medals'. I truly think she would...

When we got to the mall, Apparently malls in LA were a lot bigger than malls in Pennsylvania, and when I say a lot, I mean, A LOT. I didn't even realize it was a mall at first.

"That's the mall?" I asked as we were pulling into the parking lot.

"What else would it be?" Harry asked, somewhat sarcastically.

I don't know. It's just so big."

"Welcome to LA."

Everyone got out of the car and we all walked into the mall as a group. All of us together would going to make it much easier for fans to find us so we split into two groups. Louis, Niall, Liam, and Zayn, and Me, Ashley, and Harry. I knew Ashley would want to come with me because we always go shopping together. Harry just decided to tag along..not something I wasn't expecting. I tried to ward him off by telling him we were going to 'girly stores' but of course he didn't care.

Once Ashley saw Body Central she darted in, grabbing onto my arm. I was about ready to fall on my face since I didn't have my balance. When we got in, she let go of my arm, stocked up on everything you could think of and make me hold a good half of them. She wanted to try them all on, which I knew would take forever which also meant I would be forced to make conversation with Harry. I never knew what to say to that boy. Ashley went into the dressing room and I helped her hang all the clothes in the room.

"I don't want to just leave Harry out there, so we'll be right outside the door, okay? If you find something you like a lot or need an opinion on, just hollar."

I said my first phrase to my self again, 'I don't want to just leave Harry out there.' Why do I have to be a nice person?

I saw Harry right outside the door, leaning against the wall,"Hey," he said, "You aren't going to try anything on?"

"Oh no, I'm not too big of a shopper."

"A girl who doesn't like shopping...rare species."

"No, I like it, just only sometimes." Maybe I should stop talking.

"Are you going back in to help Ashley?"

"She'll call if she needs me, I didn't want to leave you out here by yourself, I felt bad. You have to put up with two girls and then you'd have to wait an hour for them to try clothes on."

"I wouldn't have minded, but thanks Leigh."

"LEIGH!!" Ashley was calling me.

"Could you be any louder?!" I walked in the dressing room and helped Ashley get a dress on. It looked really nice on her. "I really like this one Ash, it's cute."

"Yeah I think I like it to."

I convinced her to buy it since I knew she would let me borrow it if I ever wanted it. That's always a plus of having friends close to the same size as you.

(Ashley's New Dress)

I went back outside the dressing room to where Harry was.

"Soo.." He said a bit awkwardly.

"She's buying a dress."

He laughed a bit. "Um okay.."

"I know you probably don't care, but I don't know what else to say."

"I don't really know what to say either." He looked down. He didn't seen his usual self. I was a little worried.

"Are you okay?" I asked.

"Yeah..why do you ask?"

"You don't seem like yourself, you're being really quiet."

"I'm fine."

"Are you sure?"

"Leigh, why do you care?" He looked me in the eyes.

Why did I care? I don't know..."Because you're my friend."

There was a long silence. Awkward? I wouldn't say so, we were both just thinking about what I just said. I was thinking about how Harry would react and Harry was probably thinking about how to react.

"You consider me a friend?"

"Well..yeah..I mean, I guess."

"Good. I consider you a friend too."

Then there was another silence..except this one was awkward. Neither of us knew what to say.

Harry finally spoke, "Can I ask you something?"

What could he possibly want to ask me? "Yeah, sure."

"Can I take a picture of us and tweet it?"

I looked around the room and then back at Harry. He was looking straight at me. "Um, yeah..but why?"

"I took a break from twitter for 2 weeks, and today is the day I'm supposed to be back, and I don't know what t tweet, and since we're friends I just thought-"

I cut off his rambling, "It's fine Harry, just take the picture." I went and stood next to him and he got his phone out. He put his arm around my waist and took a picture of us making silly faces. "What are you going to say?"

"You'll see."

He tweeted the picture and I looked at it.

The tweet:

With my new friend Leigh :) xx

I smiled at the picture, we looked pretty cute despite the fact we were making silly faces. I checked my interactions and saw that Harry followed me, so I followed him back. When I refreshed the app another time I got a ton of mentions as a result of the picture. I didn't even bother to read them, assuming that most of them would be hate.

"Harry? Why did you take a break from twitter?"

"I don't know if I want to talk about it..."
