30 Days

Just read the book! I'm not telling you anything. xD


7. Chapter #7

*Leigh's P.O.V.*

Harry looked down at down at the ground and kicked the floor with his foot lightly.

"Well if you ever do want to talk about it, I'll be here."

I noticed I was talking to him like a friend, like a BEST friend, like Ashley. I was talking to him like he was Ashley, it seemed exactly like something I would say to her.

"Thanks," he replied.

That's when we both decided to leave. We totally forgot about Ashley. We just both walked away without thinking. I didn't even realize she was missing until Harry and I were sitting at a table in the food court drinking our smoothies. I checked my phone and had six messages from Ashley. That's when it hit me..

"Oh my gosh! Harry we left Ashley!"

Harry wasn't really concerned, he just started laughing. "Is she okay?"

"Yeah she said she caught up with the other boys and only ended up buying the dress." I texted her back saying that Harry and I were sorry. She replied asking how we forgot her anyway, and to be quite honest, I didn't know. How could I leave my best friend there? I really didn't mean to. I guess I just wasn't thinking.

I shook my head. "I can't believe we just left her there."

"Well she's alive isn't she?" Harry sarcastically asked, laughing.

"Yeah, but I feel bad. She was probably calling for me when she realized we were gone. Did you realize we were leaving her?"

"No, I was just hungry. All I was thinking about was food."

"Typical boy. Should we go find the others?"

Harry just leaned back in his chair and put his hands behind his head. "Nah..."

"Then what do you want to do?"

"Sit here."

"And do nothing?"

"Yeah pretty much."

"You're a weirdo."

He sat back up in his chair. "Oh I'M the weirdo?!"

I tried not to laugh. "Yep." I managed to keep a straight face.

"I bet you're more-"

"MY BOY!!" Louis yelled running over, to give Harry a hug, thus interrupting Harry.

"Wow guys, thanks for leaving me." Ashley said.

"Ashley we really didn't mean to- I'm so sorry!" I got up and gave her a hug.

"It's fine..but how did you forget about me anyway? I swear I was yelling your name for like five minutes. I thought you passed out or something."

"Um..I don't know..Harry and I were both hungry..."

"Oh so you left me for food?" She was making me feel worse than I already felt. I knew how badly Ashley hated being by herself. She always had to have someone there. It's been that way for as long as I can remember.

"Are we ready to go?" Liam asked us.

Leave? Already? "It feels like we just got here."

"It's been three hours..." He replied.

Were me and Harry talking for that long? It didn't feel like it.. I gave Harry a look that said 'Were we really sitting here talking for that long?' He just shrugged.

"I kinda wanna stay longer..." Ashley said. I knew if we stayed longer she would never want to leave, but then again, I kinda wanted to stay too. I really hadn't done much shopping, I might as well buy something while I'm in LA.

"Yeah I want to stay too." I said. I stood up and stood next to Ashley.

"I guess that means we're staying." Harry said moving towards me. He put his hand on the small of my back. Niall was trying to motion to Harry without me seeing, but I saw. He gave him a 'Did we miss something?' look. I took Harry's hand off me.

"Where are we going now?"


When we got back to the house, Ashley had bought the dress, and I bought a cute new top and skirt to match. Harry tried to convince me to buy One Direction merchandise, but I refused. He said it would be cool to have his face on me all day, but that just made me want it less.

"So what are we planning on doing the rest of the day?" Ashley asked.

"Sleep." I responded. I went and laid down across the couch, taking up almost all the room on it.

"Hey I was going to sit there!" Harry said to me. I refused to move and pretended I was going to sleep.I soon felt someone sitting on my side.

"OW HARRY GET OFF" I wiggled around in attempt to get him off me. How did I know it was Harry? Let's just say I had a feeling.

"Not until you give me a spot." He was pretty stubborn, I really couldn't get him off.

"Okay fine Harry, just get off me and I'll move."

I sat up on the couch and gave Harry a space to sit. He sat down and put his arm around me. The rest of the boys sat on the floor in front of us and Niall turned on the TV. Harry kept pulling me closer and closer until all of a sudden he put his hand on the back of my head and pushed my face into his chest.

"HARRY WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" My voice was muffled. Everyone turned around to see what was going on. Harry had me in a headlock and I couldn't escape. I even stood up from the couch, but my face was still planted in his chest.


"Please what?"

"LET ME GO." I just couldn't help but wonder why no one was helping me. "Harry why are you so mean to me?" It was hard to talk. I was barely breathing okay. I sat back down on the couch and just gave up. I took my arms off him and just sat there. In his chest. The only thing I could do was stare at his white t-shirt and smell him. At least he smelled nice.....

About three minutes had gone by and he still wasn't letting go. I all of a sudden got an idea and poked his side really hard, which made him flinch and let me go.

"HA HA!" I got up and ran away. I thought Harry was gonna chase me but I guess not. I ran around the whole entire house before I realized he wasn't behind me. I got back in the room everyone was in to see everyone engrossed in the show that was on.

"Why the heck did you just run around the whole house?" Niall asked.

"Well I thought Harry was gonna chase me." I felt extremely stupid.

"You thought wrong." Harry said. Gee thanks dumb ass.

I sat on the floor next to Liam. I knew he wouldn't attack me.


Before bed I asked Ashley why no one helped me out of Harry's headlock. She said that they all 'thought it was funny.' Thanks Ashley.


*The Next Day(Day 5)*

I woke up an got dressed and ready for the day. Last night we all decided to have a picnic today for lunch. I ended up waking up at around the time we were planning on leaving, so I didn't bother eating breakfast. I walked downstairs and everyone was already packing their food.

"What are we having to eat?" I asked/

"Why don't you come over here and help and you'll find out." Harry said and I walked over.

"What do you need me to do?" He told me to get the sandwiches out of the refrigerator, so that's what I did. He made them last night while everyone was sleeping. There were a lot of different kinds and they looked delicious. Soon enough everything was packed and we were ready to go.

"Where is the picnic going to be?" Ashley asked.

"We're just going to the park. There is a nice picnicking spot over there." Zayn said.

We all piled into the car and went off to the park. Louis drove. A lot of people would normally be worried having Louis be the driver due to his crazy personality, but he wasn't a bad driver at all. We got to the picnicking spot Zayn was telling us about. It was really nice, just like he said. It was warm, sunny, and the grass wasn't too long, so it didn't itch. It was basically the ideal picnic spot. Liam brought a blue blanket that we could all sit on. Ashley and I helped him lay it out while the other boys got all the food set up. When we all finished eating, I got on my phone and looked at my twitter. My mentions were blowing up again, still about the picture of me and Harry. I didn't realize that they were new pictures until one said, "Harry and Abby at the mall." I looked at the picture. It was definitely us at the mall...I didn't see anyone take pictures though? This is starting to creep me out.

"Harry, did you see anyone take pictures of us at the mall?"

"Nope" He said.

"Well they did." I showed him the picture. We were both drinking our smoothies and laughing over something.

Niall walked over to look at it. "Awwww well isn't that a cute picture." He said.

"Leigh, you have to realize that I don't always notice people taking pictures." Harry said.

"Well these pictures are creating false rumors." I said.

"Come on Leigh, calm down...we only have three more days, counting today, with them. Soon the pictures will be gone and everything will be back to normal." Ashley said.

"Alright...fine." I sighed. I guess I could be a little calmer about it. It's not like me and Harry were doing anything friends wouldn't do.

Ashley tweeted: "Picnic with @onedirection today, this week has gone by way too fast." I retweeted it and my mentions blew up again. I got off my phone and helped everyone clean up. We put everything back in the car.

Ashley and I both wanted to go swing, so we raced to the swings. I wasn't sure who got there first, I think it was a tie. Then we tried to see who could go the highest, she was winning, so I think I got the worse swing. Unfair. Harry came up behind me and gave me a huge push which scared me so bad I screamed. He started laughing. Ashley was still winning even after that so I gave up and hopped off my swing.

"AND HERE REIGNS THE CHAMPION." Ashley yelled as she jumped off her swing.

"Nope, you got the better swing."

"No...I won."

"You know what? Just....whatever."

We got back to the house and me and Ashley went out back and tanned for a bit. The boys stayed inside for a band meeting.
