Small Bump

*This is the sequel to I Knew You Were Trouble, this won't make sense to you if you haven't read it yet* Ella's now seven months pregnant and Harry's always on edge, making sure that she's never upset. In a way, Ella can't wait for Emily to arrive so that she'd no longer be the centre of attention. But will everything change for the better when Emily arrives, or will it just cause even more problems?
So much has changed in five months and a lot more is about to. She doesn't realise how much the boys mean to her until they all start acting differently. Is this all because of her Small Bump?

Ella's P.O.V

"Bye," I smiled, walking with Harry out of Gemma's hospital room.

We climbed into the car and Harry drove us back to his mum's. I managed to keep my eyes open during the journey but it was a slight struggle.

"Just go to sleep, I'll carry you into the house," Harry laughed, his own eyelids drooping.

"I'll be fine. We're almost back," I told him.

As soon as we arrived back at the house five minutes later, I clambered out of the car and into the house.

"Demon!" I called out slipping my shoes off.

He came bounding over to me, stumbling over on the way. No matter how tired I was, I still managed to laugh at his clumsiness.

"Come on, D, let's go to bed," I sighed, trying to lift him up into my arms.

He whined, scurrying over to the door and searching around for Harry.

"D, careful, he's gonna open the door," I warned.

When he didn't stop spinning in circles in front of the door, I opened it and called out to Harry. Demon slipped in between my legs and ran around the car, stopping abruptly when he found Harry.

"What are you doing out here? Come on, let's go inside," Harry laughed and I could see his hand ruffle through his curls from above the roof of the car.

They both came into full view and Harry smiled at me. I returned the gesture, blinking my eyes furiously to keep them open.

"I told you to go to sleep," He shook his head, taking my hand and helping me up the stairs.

"I wouldn't have been able to," I yawned.

We walked into Harry's room and over to the bed. I laid down and curled up into a ball wriggling my toes in delight.

"Haz, come to bed," I whined.

"Two seconds, I left my phone downstairs," He groaned, walking down the stairs.

I nodded and slipped out of my clothes, pulling on my new kangaroo onsie. Demon jumped up onto the bed next to me and sun around, making his bed in the little blanket we gave him. I giggled as he plonked himself down and looked at me in curiosity.

"Night, D, we're going home tomorrow so get some rest!"

As I spoke to him, his ears pricked up and he stared intently at me. Almost as if he understood what I was saying which, to a certain extent, I guess he could.

I laid my head back down on the pillow and closed my eyes. I heard Harry's footsteps and buried my head further into the pillow.

When the space behind me sunk down, I was pulled further into Harry's arms. I smiled at him and let my eyes flutter close once again.

"I love you," I whispered.

"I love you, too," He spoke softly, caressing my cheek.

"I miss this," I sighed.

Harry turned me around so I was facing him and rested his chin on the top of my head. I snuggled my face into the crook of his neck , inhaling his addictive scent.

"Miss what?" He asked, yawning.

"Just being us two. We're always around people and there's no way to escape drama when you live in that house," I explained.

"Why don't we move to my flat in London then?" He suggested.

"But would there be enough room?" I asked.

"Yeah and, anyway, it'll just be until we find a proper place of our own," Harry told me.

"Okay," I agreed.

"Get some sleep, Elz. We can talk in the morning," He gently pressed his lips to mine.

Pulling away, I rested my head on his chest and he wrapped his arm tighter around me.

"Night, Haz," I mumbled.

"Good night, baby girl," He fiddled with my fingers and began singing to me.

He knew it was the only way to get me to sleep without me getting up at two in the morning. We figured out that, as long as Emily's happy, she won't make me have as bad morning sicknesses. So if Harry sings, it makes her happy.

We were lost in the middle like bottles in the ocean

But we found one another like the answer to a question

Like words to a love song, like a river to the red sea

Finding you was so hard, but loving you is easy

Loving you is easy

Loving you is easy

Finding you was so hard, but loving you is easy...

*

The next morning I awoke to Demon licking all over my face.

"Ugh, D, let me sleep," I groaned, attempting to cover my face with my hands.

"You're gonna have to get up, anyway, babe," Harry laughed.

"Are we going home now?" I let my eyes open.

"If you want, just get packed and then we can go," He answered.

"Will do," I smiled, standing up.

"Now that I think about it, don't you think it was handy that we were packed and ready to leave to come down any second for when this happened?" I grinned.

"I guess," Harry shrugged.

*An hour later*

We were all packed and out the door. I buckled my seat belt and Harry lifted Demon into the car at my feet, closing the door after. I pulled out my phone and clicked on Louis' number.

To: Tommo

On my way home now, any chance you could help me and Harry move later on today ? X

I hit send just as Harry climbed into the car.

"Have you asked Lou?" He questioned, putting the key in the ignition and rolling out of the front drive.

"Just texted him now," I paused, looking down at my phone, "And he's just replied."

From: Tommo

Yeah sure, where are you moving to though?x

To: Tommo

Harry's flat x

From: Tommo

What the one in London?x

To: Tommo

Yeah x

I put my phone back in my pocket and sang along to 'Unconditionally' by Katy Perry as it was on the radio. Demon jumped onto my lap and laid down instantly, closing his eyes in happiness.

"Haz, I'm starving, can we get some McDonalds?" I whined.

"Sure, it's only ten now so we have time before breakfast finishes," He agreed, driving to the nearest drive-thru.

He ordered for both of us and passed the food to me.

"You'll have to feed me," He chuckled.

"There you go," I giggled, shoving a piece of his egg and bacon McMuffin in his mouth.

"Well that was nice of you to do that," Harry rolled his eyes.

"Excuse me, I'm not the one that needs to be fed like a baby," I teased, taking a sip of my coke.

"I don't but do you want to crash?" He asked rhetorically.

I scoffed, lifting the food out of Demon's reach.

"No, D, it's not for you," I scolded but gave him a little bone treat to keep him occupied.

He sat down on my feet and began eating away.

"He's such a spoilt dog," Harry muttered under his breath.

"I heard that, ya know," I laughed, "But, yeah, he is."

I passed Harry a piece of his food and put it into his mouth.

"Careful, you're blocking my view," He chuckled.

"Well my face is totally better than the back of a car," I giggled, "I wonder what it'll be like when Emily comes. If we'll still joke around with the others and stuff."

"What do you mean?" He frowned.

"Well, I don't have a chance to go out everywhere but you do and I know for a fact that the boys think you're being distant," I pointed out.

"There's just so much going on," He sighed, tightening his grip on the steering wheel, making his knuckles turn white.

"Don't do that," I told him, "And that's no excuse."

"What are you trying to say?" He stopped at a red light.

"Just that I think we're too young for this. I mean, I know we agreed on what we wanted, but this was never really planned, was it?"

He shook his head, knowing I had a point. I gave him a smirk, knowing I was right.

"You can be so stubborn some times. You always have to be right," Harry laughed.

"I'm not sure whether I should take that as a compliment or not."

"Neither am I."

"Hey," I slapped him lightly, "Well you're just too easy."

"There's nothing wrong with that."

"There's nothing wrong with being stubborn either."

"Never said there was."

For the rest of the two-hour journey home me and Harry made fun of each other and laughed the whole way home. We were still annoying each other when we walked through the door.

"Don't forgot all those stuff Will told me," I threatened.

"You wouldn't," He frowned.

"Oh yes I would," I laughed.

"That's not fair," He whined.

"I win, now what were you saying?" I turned around to look at him.

He shrugged and put Demon down on the floor. He ran around the whole room and disappeared.

"D, where'd you go?" I called out.

"He's in here!" Louis called out from in the kitchen.

I slipped my feet out of my Converse and put them on the stairs ready to take up. Me and Harry walked into the kitchen where Louis, El and Chloe were all talking.

"Hey," I smiled.

"Ella," Chloe hugged me, whispering a congratulations in my ear, "Joey had to go 'cause he's going into the jungle."

"Oh, yeah, I forgot. I'm a celebrity starts tonight, doesn't it. It's gonna be well weird watching Joey in it though, isn't it?" I grinned.

"Yeah, I remember when we were younger and he used to scream like a girl at practically every insect," Louis laughed.

"I just hope he doesn't get made fun of," I nodded, referring to his dyslexia.

"Me, too, I think he's gonna be able to move on from Sam," Chloe agreed.

"I'm glad that he has this opportunity to 'cause I loved them together but she could be so horrible to him at times," I continued to talk to Chloe as the two of us walked into the lounge.

"I don't understand why they started seeing each other again. He was going with his heart instead of his head and it just wasn't right," She replied.

"It was just heart breaking to have him ring me at like two in the morning with him wanting comforting after an argument. But you must have had it worse as he's able to come and see you and Frankie whenever he needs."

*

"Oh my god," I gasped as I walked through the doors of Harry's penthouse apartment.

"You like it?" Harry asked.

"Like it? I love it," I smiled.

"Ring your sister to come keep you company while me and Lou get the boxes into here," He suggested.

"Harry, you aren't allowed pets in here," I frowned.

"We managed to get him up here, didn't we?" He smirked, leaving the apartment.

I pulled out my phone and, as Harry had told me to, I rung my sister.

"Hey, Dani, where are you?" I asked.

"Coming to help you move," She laughed.

"Did Harry ring you?" I questioned.

"Well Liam was coming up to help so I though I'd come to help you unpack," She answered.

"Oh, ok, see you in a bit," I giggled, ending the call.

I sat down on the sofa, waiting for Danielle's arrival. There was a knock at the door and I stood up.

"D, you know I love you but I can't risk you getting taken away from me, you have to stay in here for a bit. Don't worry, I'll be back soon," I told him but he ignored me, running around and sniffing everything.

Danielle smiled at me when I opened the door. I left it ajar so that the boys didn't have to knock each time.

"Come in," I smiled back, leading her back to the other room where I'd left Demon.

"So, how's Gemma?" Danielle asked, sitting down.

"Yeah, she's fine. Tom's so adorable," I gushed.

"It'll be you soon," She laughed.

"Less than two weeks now," I grinned.

"I bet you're excited."

"I am," I nodded.

"Shall we start unpacking?" She asked, standing up.

I agreed and led her through the apartment. We came across two bathrooms, a hot tub room, a kitchen and a few more rooms. Finally, we found the bedrooms.

There was two but, from seeing all the boxes in one, I guessed it was going to be mine and Harry's. I walked in and saw a double bed, a walk-in wardrobe, a TV and a few sets of drawers.

I opened the first box and rummaged through it briefly.

"Are you ok hanging up these clothes into the wardrobe?" I questioned.

"Yeah, sure," She smiled.

I moved to the next box and discovered loads of pictures of me and Harry. We'd only been together for around a year so it was unbelievable that Harry'd found all of these. Pouring the box onto the floor, I began looking through them.

Me and Harry when he asked me to be his girlfriend...

A night out in Doncaster...

Our first proper date...

The first picture the press got of us...

There was so many memories crammed into that box that represented our first year together.

"I never knew we even had all of these," I whispered.

"What do you mean?" Danielle looked over at me, "Who did your packing?"

"Harry did it while I was talking to Chloe," I shrugged

"Well that explains it then," She giggled, turning back to what she was putting away.

Harry, Louis and Liam walked through the door laughing, each with two boxes in their hands.

"Where did you find all of these?" I asked Harry.

"Just found them scattered all over the place really," He shrugged, placing his boxes down.

"I can't believe how long ago that was," I laughed, holding up a picture of me and him laughing back at the little park in Doncaster.

"I know, so much has changed," He sighed, "I'll be back in a minute, we're almost done."

I placed all of the pictured into a pile, planning to frame them or put them in photo albums later. Me and Danielle continued to pack away our boxes but we soon got distracted when she turned the music up really loudly.

"That's it, all done. We can finish packing later, why don't we get some lunch?" Harry suggested, walking into the room.

Me, Danielle, Harry and Liam sat down and ordered some Domino's for lunch. Louis had gone to pick El up from her modelling shoot so they'd both be back soon.

"So, how much did you pack?" Harry raised his eyebrows.

"Two boxes between us," Me and Danielle chorused, looking at each other in sarcastic achievement.

"That's definitely something," Liam teased.

*

"Baby, let me take you on a tour of our flat," Harry pulled me off the sofa when the others had left.

"Okay, calm down," I giggled.

"So here's our bedroom, as you already know," He gestured to the room I'd been unpacking in earlier.

This time, I took a proper chance to stand back and take a look. The walls were a creamy colour and had a black chandelier hanging from the ceiling; the double bed that leant against the middle wall looked gorgeously comfy and next to it was a vanity desk.

After looking over the rest of the room, Harry talked me through the remaining rooms in the very large flat. It was so neat and tidy, especially for a boy.

"So what d'you think?" He stopped back at the sofa.

"It's amazing, Harry," I grinned.

"You still think there won't be enough space?" He raised his eyebrows and smirked.

"No, it's just perfect," I laughed.

We decided to do a twitcam for the first time with us both living in here. At around half past ten, Harry stopped the twitcam and Demon followed us into our room. He jumped onto our bed and, when I lifted the covers up, he crawled underneath and padded his feet around to make a bed.

"Oh, D, your bed's packed away," I groaned, "And you just had to sit right in the middle didn't you?"

As if he knew I was mad, he stood up and moved to lay on my pillow, giving me just enough room to place my head down.

"Thank you," I smiled in satisfaction.

I changed into my onsie before climbing into bed. Harry put on 'The Santa Clause' and then got in next to me. We snuggled together and began watching the film.

Once that was finished, we watched the two follow-on DVD's. Due to being tired, we both fell asleep before the end of the third one.

*

"H-harry," I whimpered, causing him to wake up.

"Baby, what's wrong?" He asked, worry taking over his features.

"I think my water just broke," I panicked.

"Calm down, we'll get dressed and then go to the hospital. It's only round the corner," He soothed, helping me out of bed.

In a rush, I slipped into some leggings and a baggy t-shirt then we left the flat. Harry had already got my name put down for this hospital so we were taken straight to a delivery room.

I told Harry to ring my mum but he refused to leave my side until Emily had safely been delivered. When we reached the delivery room, I finally managed to persuade him to ring my mum as well as his.

"Hello, Miss Thorpe, by the looks of things you are going to have a short, straight-forward birth," The nurse smiled, "But that also means that your contractions will begin any second now.

*Five Hours Later*

Harry was still stood beside me, encouraging and urging me on while whispering sweet nothings in my ear. Once I'd pushed a few more times, I heard a cry.

"Do you have a name? As presumed, it's a little girl," The nurse asked.

"Emily Anne Styles," Harry answered, noticing that I was too shocked to say or hear barely anything she was saying.

"Emily Anne Styles, born at 7:34am on the 25th of November 2013, weighing 4.67 pounds," She announced..

I smiled up at Harry as one of the doctors wrapped baby Emily up in a little blanket.

"Would you like to hold her?" He smiled at me.

I nodded eagerly, completely ignoring my tiredness as I cradled her in my arms and kissed her forehead lovingly. Harry saw me blink my eyes in an attempt to keep them open and leant down so that his lips were level with my right ear.

"Get some sleep, she's not gonna go anywhere," He chuckled.

I nodded and looked at him gratefully. He took Emily from my arms, allowing me to lay back fully.

"Wake me up in a couple of hours," I told him.

"Go to sleep."

"I can't, it feels weird."

He laughed and sat down next to me on the bed, lifting his legs up and wrapping his arm around.

"Better?"

"A bit, don't forget to wake me up soon, Haz."

"Sure, sure," He smiled but I knew that's what he always said when he wouldn't see through to his promise.

*

When I woke up, my mum, dad, Danielle, Anne and Gemma were all staring in awe at Emily; they were all taking every chance at holding her and saying their first 'hello'.

"You're awake," Harry mumbled as my eyes fluttered open. Tom was in his arms, fast asleep and oblivious to everything.

"I can't believe we're parents," I smiled up at him, overwhelmed with happiness after the five hours of birth I'd gone through.

"Neither can I, but I couldn't imagine a better person to share this amazing experience with," He agreed, moving a strand of hair from my eyes. Lifting my own hand up, I was surprised to find that a couple beads of sweat were still on my forehead.

"What's the time?" I sighed, feeling a sudden desire to go back to our apartment, cuddle up and watch some movies.

"You were asleep from under an hour, it wouldn't matter if you went to sleep again, baby," He reassured me.

"No, I'm fine, just a little tired," I spoke weakly.

"It wouldn't hurt, Elz. You're never getting any sleep at the moment, now's your chance to catch up," He grinned, "You'll get ill and then have to stay in this hospital."

I groaned quietly, making sure that my mum didn't hear or see that I was awake.

"When can I go home?" I asked, wishing the answer was now.

"Later today, hopefully. I just need to sign some papers and they have to give you a quick check-up to see that you're strong enough to come home," He answered.

"I hate hospitals, they're so depressing. I mean, I know babies are born everyday and that's amazing but whenever I come in here, I can't help but think of all the people that are suffering," I whined.

"You're awake," My mum's head snapped round in my direction and everyone's eyes turned onto me.

I mentally slapped myself, missing the conversation me and Harry were having already. Looking over at him, he laughed at my annoyed face and mouthed an 'we'll talk later, sorry, baby'. Without warning, my mum pulled me into a tight hug, causing me to squirm and strain slightly against her.

"Mum...can't...breathe...right now," I uttered, looking to Harry for help but he just shook his head and smirked.

"Sorry," She apologized, pulling me away and smiling.

"Dad, save the awkwardness," I warned, feeling uncomfortable just thinking about hugging him. We'd always had a closer relationship than mine and my mum's when I was younger but, as I got older, that sort of faded.

Everyone in the room laughed at me but I saw my dad look at the floor and shuffle his feet in embarrassment.

"Ella, congratulations. Emily's so adorable and I'm happy Harry found you, you really do make him happy and he loves you with all his heart and I can see that the feeling's mutual," Anne whispered in my ear, hugging me carefully so she didn't hurt me.

"Gem, are you sure you had a baby a couple of weeks ago?" I gaped as Anne moved, giving me a good view of Gemma's almost-flat stomach.

"I have proof," She laughed, gesturing at baby Tom, who was now awake in Harry's arms.

I giggled, signalling for Danielle to pass me my new daughter. This was the first time I got to hold her without having to pass her to Harry so that I could go to sleep. Her eyes were closed but, without even looking, I knew what colour they'd be.

A vivid emerald green that would make your heart melt every time you look into them, just like her fathers. She had a few centimetre long fair brown hairs on her forehead. Again, I could imagine her growing up with her hair going to a dark shade of brown, curling into ringlets. Already, Emily had taken the form of a miniature female version of Harry.

"Ah, Miss Thorpe, I see that you're awake," The nurse nodded, walking over to me after I'd been holding Emily for no longer than five minutes.

I looked up at her expectantly, waiting for her to speak and explain what she needed me to do.

"Are you feeling okay?" She asked.

"I feel fine, a little tired but nothing a good nights sleep in my own bed won't fix," I hinted and Harry nudged me.

"Well, then you're free to go in a couple of hours. Just make sure that someone comes down to sign the papers and check out of the hospital so that we know when you've left," As she was about to walk out of the door, she turned around again, "Oh, and the birth certificate will be ready for you to collect on your way out."

I nodded and thanked her for her time before she walked out of the room.

"It was lovely seeing the three of you but we've gotta go otherwise Tom will wake up," Anne told us.

"And trust me, you do not want to see him when he wakes up. We're booked into a hotel so we'll come by to the apartment later," Gemma giggled.

"Okay, see you soon," I nodded, giving each of them a brief hug. Harry gave each of them a hug and kiss on the cheek, passing Tom back to Gemma.

When they left the room, I turned to my mum and dad and opened my mouth to speak.

"Mum, Dad, I don't want to sound rude but I really need to see Lou," I bit my lip guiltily.

"It's fine, we'll see you soon, sweetheart. Text Sam the address because he wants to come and see you," My mum informed.

"Will do," I nodded as the two of them walked out of the room.

"Danielle," I laughed as she stared out the window, "Danielle Christina Thorpe."

"Don't call me that, now everyone knows my middle name," She groaned.

"Harry's hardly anyone," I rolled my eyes.

"Still," She frowned.

"I still don't see what's so bad about your middle name, at least you don't have mine..." I trailed off, wanting to end the subject of middle names there.

*

"Baby, let's go," Harry smiled, after we got the news that I could go.

"I'm coming," I replied, shifting Emily in my arms so that I was able to slip my feet into the shoes.

We walked down the stairs and into the front entrance, walking over to reception. Harry signed the papers before we both signed the birth certificate. The lady photocopied it before giving us the original copy so that we could leave.

"Congratulations," The nurse that had delivered Emily smiled as we walked over to our car.

"Thanks," I replied.

I climbed into the car and cradled Emily in my arms. Harry got in the drivers' seat and started the short five-minute journey home.

"This is your new home, Emily," I told her as we walked over to elevator.

Harry laughed as he pressed the button to take us to the top floor. When we arrived back at our flat, I felt like walking straight into our bedroom and falling asleep.

"Baby, I have something to show you," Harry looked at me and grabbed my hand, leading to the bedroom that was next door to ours.

"Why are we here?" I asked, moving Emily to the other side of my arms.

"Open the door and find out," He answered teasingly.

I put my hand over the door handle and twisted it, opening the door. The boys had all come down for the day and them and Harry had spent the whole time in this room.

I gasped when I saw what was inside; it'd been transformed into a proper baby nursery and it looked amazing. There was a changer, cot, moses basket, mini wardrobe and a lot more.

"Where did you get all of this?" I frowned.

"I have my ways," He winked.

I walked into the room and placed Emily into the moses basket. Making sure she was covered up, I tucked the teddy that Louis had brought her under her arm.

Harry lifted the moses basket up and we both walked over to our bedroom. I changed into some comfier clothes before laying down in bed. I was soon joined by Harry and we just talked for a bit until we got hungrier.

By the time we stood up to get a drink and some chocolate, Emily was already awake. It was such a surprise to me that her eyes were open as it normally takes around a week. As I predicted, her eyes were the exact some shade of green as Harry's.

I lifted her gently out of the moses basket and walked over into the other room. Harry had followed me to put the moses basket back in its original place before leaving and I guessed that he went into the lounge.

I placed Emily down on the changing table and walked to get her a nappy and new baby grow.

"Em, you can be the same as me and Daddy," I laughed.

A couple of weeks ago, I'd gone to the same place where Harry had got ours done to see if they could make a similar one to fit Emily. Unlike mine and Harry's matching ones, hers said 'Emily Anne Styles'. Then, when I was in the hospital, Louis had gone to get her birth date written on it.

After changing her nappy, I slipped on her baby grow and smiled. I lifted her back up and we walked into the lounge where Harry was already sitting there. He grinned at her outfit and took her into his arms. I pulled my phone out and quickly texted the address of the block of flats we were in to Sam. I smiled as I read his reply.

From: Sam

Thanks. Congratulations to you and Harry on becoming parents! Looking forward to seeing baby Emily, sending my love to all three of you. When's a good time to visit?xx

I showed Harry the message and he laughed.

"Tell him anytime," He told me, playing with Emily's little fingers..

To: Sam

Anytime from now's fine. Would love to see you today though :) xx

From: Sam

Okay, I'll leave now then haha xx

I answered with an 'ok' before scrolling through my twitter feed. There was lots of mentions of me and Harry about us becoming parents. Before I even had the chance to question how they knew, I saw Harry's latest tweet:

@Ella_Thorpe The best mum imaginable for my beautiful girl, Emily Anne Styles. Thanks for all your support. Love you - H xx
