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?

5. All Too Much

Ella's P.O.V

"Lovebirds, hurry up before we drive off without you!" Harry called down the path to Danielle and Liam.

"Harry," I looked at him.

"Well, for gods sake, they're both old enough to get their driving licence," He pointed out.

"Yeah, I know and one of them will have to. But be fair, babe, we were coming this way and they're coming with us to the interview," I sighed.

His head fell back on the car seat next to me and Liam and Danielle climbed into the car.

"Hey, mate," Liam greeted but Harry just ignored him.

"Wouldn't talk to him if I were you," I told him, rolling my eyes.

I rolled out of their drive and headed in the direction of the radio station. Knowing Harry was getting annoyed, I placed my hand on his knee in an attempt to calm him down. He looked over at me and smiled playing with each of my fingers in turn.

"Keep your eyes on the road," He teased and my attention moved off of him.

"Are you two listening from in the car?" Danielle asked and they both nodded.

"Be nice, Harry," I laughed, leaning over to kiss him quickly.

Me and Danielle climbed out of the car and walked over to where El and Laura were waiting for us.

"Let's go," El smiled when we were all together.

The four of us walked into the radio station and over to front desk.

"Ahh, you're Ella, Danielle, Eleanor and Laura?" The lady asked and we nodded, "Come with me, then."

We followed her down the corridor and into a room that was full of cameras.

"Hi, guys," The interviewer greeted about five minutes later.

"Hi," We chorused.

"So, how are you?" He asked.

"Good," El answered for all of us.

"Great, first of all, Ella. I understand that you're a mum, congratulations," He turned to me and I nodded, "And we will come back to that but let's start with, how did you and Louis Tomlinson meet?"

I laughed. "Do you want to hear my version or Louis' version?"

"Yours. Then his," He laughed along with me.

*

"You did great, babe, don't worry," Harry reassured me as we walked through the apartment door.

Zayn and Emily were sat on the floor in the middle of the lounge, not even noticing that we'd walked through the door.

"Thanks for looking after her, Z," I smiled, watching him jump out of his skin.

"It'd be nice to have a warning before you come in and give me a heart attack," He turned around to look at us.

"Just ask next time," I smirked.

"D'you wanna do a Twitcam with us?" Harry asked, his mood having changed from the grumpy one earlier.

Zayn shook his head and mumled something about being on his own.

"Harry, what are we gonna do? He's been like this since Perrie left for tour a couple of weeks ago," I sighed, sitting down next to Emily as she played with my fingers.

"She'll be home soon, then he'll be back to normal," He told me before walking over to get himself a drink.

"Yeah, but it's not healthy for him to stay shut up in his room all the time," I pointed out when he came back into the room and sat on the sofa above my head.

"You know he won't listen to me," Harry hinted, taking a swig of his drink.

From: Pezza

Hi, how are you? Just wanted to let you know that I'm coming home a few days early so I'll let you know the final date soon. Is Zayn any better?x

I opened the text from Perrie and read it over twice more, trying to think of a reply.

To: Pezza

Good thanks, you? That's great! He's not really doing much, just locking himself up in his room but I'll make it my job to get him feeling better x

Looking up at Harry, I saw that he'd already started the Twitcam and was chatting away to the fans.

"Haz, look after her while I go speak to Zayn and try to get him out of the room," I passed Emily up to him before walking over to the spare room where Zayn and Perrie had been staying.

I knocked on the door and heard a muffled voice saying I could come in.

"Zayn," I try to get his attention but he stayed facing the wall, "Perrie text."

"Really? What did she say?" His head snapped up in my direction, all of a sudden interested.

"That she's coming home a few days earlier than planned. You can't stay cooped up in here all the time while she's away, though," I pointed out, taking advantage of his attention.

"Nothing for me to do," He shrugged.

"We're going out for lunch, you could come," I suggested.

He nodded and stood up, walking ut if the room, leaving me to my thoughts. My phone rang from my jcket pocket and I checked the caller name before accepting the call.

"Hey, Lou, what's up?" I asked.

"Do you and Haz wanna come out for dinner with me and El?" He offered.

"I would but I don't wanna leave Em with Zayn again and I can't exactly bring them with me," I answered.

"But I haven't seen you in ages and I really need to talk to you," He sighed in an attempt to make me feel guilty. And it worked.

"Just all come over to us," I gave in.

"Yay! I'll get the alcohol," He shouted down the phone.

I scoffed. "No alcohol."

"But you don't have to drink," He laughed, catching on that I was getting annoyed by what he was saying.

"I said no," I finalised, "And I know you won't forget but Zayn's birthday's in less than a week," I reminded him.

"It's all sorted, be over for about fiveish?" He asked.

"Yeah, sure, I gotta go now though," I confirmed.

"Bye, see you later," He quickly replied before ending the call.

I walked into the living room and sat down on the sofa, swinging my feet into Zayn's lap.

He huffed. "Thanks for that."

"No problem," I smirked, "Changed of plans for later, everyone's coming here.

The two boys boys nodded, Harry continuing to play with Emily's fingers while she slept and Zayn flicking through the TV channels. I grabbed my phone and clicked on instagram, posting a picture of all of us on New Year's.

A knock at the door caused me to jump up and walk towards it and opening it.

"George!" I screamed, stunned.

"Shh, I'm trying to stay hidden," He pressed a finger to my lips and I pulled him inside.

"I missed your hugs," I smiled, my voice muffled as I spoke against his chest.

"Most people do," He smirked as I looked up at him and rolling my eyes slightly. Me and George have been friends for at least fifteen years now and, other than Louis, he's probably my closest friend.

"What are you doing here?" I asked.

"Well I thought it'd be nice to come see you but you clearly don't want me here so I'll go," He pretended to look hurt and walked towards the door.

"No, no, I didn't mean it like that," I grabbed his arm and twisted him to look at me.

"Fine, I'll stay but only for a couple of hours, I need to go see the boys," He grinned, giving me a proper hug.

"That's unfair, you see them everyday and I haven't seen you in months," I pouted, folding my arms over my chest.

"Come with me then," He suggested, trying to take my arms away from my chest in annoyance.

"Seriously?" I raised my eyebrows and he nodded, making me smile.

*A week later*

"Harry, it's your turn to make dinner!" I called into the other room, hearing him groan.

"Can't we eat out?" He yelled back.

"No, Haz. Perrie's coming home early hours tomorrow so we need rest," I replied.

"But I'm looking after Em," He spoke, saying the first excuse that came into his head.

"Fine. I'll do it," I sighed, taking some chicken breasts out of the freezer.

I made a chicken curry for the boys and some chicken noodles for me, plating them up and calling for the boys.

"Thanks, babe, it looks amazing," Harry kissed me on the cheek as I was on my way into the living room.

I put down my bowl on the table by the sofa and quickly put Emily into her cot before going back to sit down on the sofa and slowly eating my food. I flipped over the channel and put on an episode of Eastenders.

"Do we have to watch this rubbish?" Zayn muttered under his breath.

"I made dinner," I shrugged.

After eating, we all decided to to bed so that we'd at least get a few hours of sleep. Zayn went and got Emily from her room and took her to sleep with him as he was excited and just wanted someone to cuddle with.

"Elz, just come and lay down," Harry groaned from the bed.

"Two seconds, I just need to set my alarm," I quickly picked up my phone.

He waked up behind me and kissed my kneck softly, making me melt under his touch. After double-checking that my alarm was set to go off at the right time, I let him take me over to our bed and sing me to sleep.

*

"Perrie!" I heard Zayn shout and twisted my head to see her walking through the terminal gate with the other girls.

The two ran towards each other and disappeared in one another's arms. I smiled and felt happy that they were now back together and no longer seperated.

"Did you get his birthday present?" I asked, looking up at Harry.

"Yeah, don't worry they'll both love it," He smiled, resting his hands gently on my hips.

"Can we get McDonald's on the way home?" I grinned.

"Typical Ella," He laughed, "And that's why I love you."

I love you too, Haz," I replied and tilited my head up to kiss him.

"Ewww, get a room," Perrie teased from where she was now standing in front of me.

"Look who's talking," I retorted.

"Only joking," She laughed, giving me a hug.

"He's so much happier now that you're here," I whispered into her ear and she smiled, replying with a small 'thank you'.

"Can we go now?" Harry whined, shuffling from foot to foot in an attempt to keep himself occupied.

We agreed to leave and got into the car, making a brief visit to McDonald's drive thru.

*Jan 12th-Zayn's birthday*

"It's not much but we though that you'd like it," I smirked to myself as Harry passed Zayn his card. He opened the envelope and two tickets fell out waking him raise his eyebrows.

"Thanks, guys," He smiled once he'd read the tickets properly, standing up to give each of us a hug.

"We though that you deserved a break and to have some time as just the two of you," Harry explained.

"Right, we need to get ready to go over to Lou's. Leave in an hour?" I asked the others.

They nodded in agreement and I stood up to go into my room and get ready. I slipped into an oversized black top that had 'PINK' written on the back and a pair of light skinny jeans. Slipping on my black and purple Vans, I pulled my hair into a high ponytail and put on my usual make up.

I grabbed my phone and one of Harry's hoodies before waking over to where Harry was still sat in the lounge.

"What's up?" I asked, sitting down on his lap.

"Nothing," He smiled but when he avoided my gaze, I knew it wasn't genuine.

"Fine, whatever. Don't tell me," I shrugged my shoulders and stood up, walking into the other room to get Emily dressed.

Once I was finished, I packed her a quick change of clothes and some milk before walking out to se that the others were ready. We all climbed into the car and headed over to Lou and El's. The minute we walked through the door, El started glaring at Harry.

"What do you know that I don't?" I mumbled into her ear and frowned.

"You'll find out soon enough," She sighed, avoiding the question as best as she could.

Lunch was already set up at the table and we gratefully tucked into it. After it was all gone we had to say goodbye quickly and leave. I arranged to pick up Emily in about five hours as the two of them weren't going out having still kept the secret about El being pregnant.

*

I was driving home from picking Emily up on my own as I'd told Harry to stay out for a few more hours. Deciding that it wasn't an option whether I found out what everyone else wasn't telling me, I opened twitter up on my laptop and instagram on my phone.

As I waited for them to load up, I put Emily to bed and made sure that I didn't wake her up be placing my foot on the wrong step. I found I had loads of mentions but one in paticular caufght my attention. It was posted by the same person on both sites.

'How could @Harry_Styles so this t @Ella_Thorpe ? She deserves better than t be cheated on.'

Confused, I clicked on the picture that had been posted with it and tears began to well up in my eyes. I finished reading the article just as Harry walked through the door.

"What's wrong?" He asked, his words slurring.

"You know exactly 'what's wrong'," I spat.

"I don't understand," He spoke quickly, his words jumbled up.

"I'm sick of this, you said you were done with her," I pointed my finger at him in accusation, my voice rising.

"Whatever it is that you read, it's not true," He tried to pull me into him but I shoved him back.

"You took her fucking virginity a few weeks after your daughter was born, Harry!" I screamed, tears in my eyes.

"I didn't sleep with her. I promise."

"Look me in the eye and tell me, Harry. Look into my eyes and swear on Emily's eyes that you didn't sleep with her!" I shouted and he looked down, "That's what I thought."

"Where are you going? Don't leave, I'm sorry. I messed up real bad," He grabbed my arm.

"Why would I tell you? I'll get someone to come and get Emily in a couple of days," I walked out of the apartment and walked across the road, falling down in the middle of Danielle's garden.

I tried to stand up and walk towards the door but couldn't bring muscly to move, just curling up in a ball and letting the tears take over. Feeling an arm wrap around me, I looked up to see my sister staring down at me, worry written all over her face.

"Ella, what happened? Why are you sitting in the middle of the- wait a minute, come inside and we can talk," She helped me stand up.

"I wouldn't want to be a bother, I was just gonna go to Lou's," I wiped my eyes.

"No, you could never be a bother. Come inside and get some sleep then we can talk in the morning once you've had time to get over it," She guided me into to house, "But be quiet, Liam's asleep."

She pulled out some jogging bottoms and a baggy top, passing them to me before moving me in the direction of the spare bedroom.

"Thanks so much, I love you, Dan," I smiled, sitting down on the bed as she hugged me one last time before walking back to where her and Liam slept.

I sighed and got changed into the clothes I'd been given, pulling down the fresh sheets and placing my phone on the bedside table, briefly seeing that I had tons of messages and missed calls from Harry.

*

The next morning I woke to loud voices and shouting outside my window. I stood up and opened the curtains slightly, trying to get a glimpse of what was going outside and who was out there. I soon shook that question out of my head as I could recognize those voices from anywhere; Zayn and Harry.

I groaned. Zayn can get so overprotective sometimes. Maybe even worse that Lou. I closed the curtains and walked into the bathroom, my reflection making me gasp. Mascara was streamed down my face and they were visible lines were my tears had trailed.

"Ella, are you in here?" Danielle asked.

"In here," I spoke out, my voice cracking, shaky and weak.

"He wants to see you. You should go speak to him," She advised, walking into the bathroom.

"I don't want to," I pressed my lips into a tight line, "But I do want them to stop arguing."

"You go get him then," She sighed.

"You're not gonna help me but Liam will," I left her standing there in defeat and walked to find Liam in his room.

"Ella?" He questioned when I appeared in the doorway.

"Can I ask you for a favour?" I tried my best to smile slightly.

"Sure. Anything, come in," He laughed at my attempt.

I moved to sit next to him and looked at him. "Can you please stop them from arguing, Liam?"

"You're the only one that can-" He began.

"Please, Liam? I'm not ready to speak to or see him right now," I begged.

"Fine, but don't expect it to work," He gave in, standing me up and pulling me down the stairs with him.

"Liam, what are you doing?" I frowned as he opened the door and took me outside with him.

"Ella?" Harry looked over at me and what I saw broke my heart.

His eyes were red and puffy and his hair was all over the place. It made me want to forget like any of this ever happened and forgive him, to go back to how things were in the first place. But I couldn't, I couldn't just forgive and forget anymore.

"I can't do this, not again," I ran clumsily into the house, tears spurting out of my eyes again.

Danielle was there to meet me at the door, pulling me in for a hug and rubbing my back gently.

"You can talk to me, I know how you feel, remember," She smiled, moving us over to the sofa.

"But you don't. Everybody told you he was bad news but you chose to ignore them, I didn't have that. You weren't abused or cheated on many times. At least you had luck with all but one of your relationships and I'm never gonna have that. You were always the favourite, with good grades and the good boyfriends and then there's me. The girl who falls in love too fast with the wrong people with average grades and was always distracted by the wrong things. I had Louis, that's it. You will never understand how that feels because you're you. Where did it all go wrong, Danielle?" I vented, crying into her jumper, feeling all the memories flooding back.

"All that you just said couldn't have been more wrong," She mumbled.

"But it is, everything bad happens to me," I sobbed.

"You know that's not true. And Harry does love you, he knows that he made a mistake," She soothed as Liam walked through the door.

"I can't."

 

Danielle's P.O.V

She says that now but she'll change her mind sometime. I just need to get her to forget about the past and start living in the present.

"You should get a few more hours sleep," I suggested and she nodded, standing up and walking away.

"I'll be back in about five minutes," I quickly told Liam.

"Where are you going?" He asked.

"I'll tell you when I get back, love you," I blurted, kissing him on the cheek before leaving the house and crossing the road.

Perrie answered the flat door and gave me a quick hug, asking me why I was here.

"I need Emily, I'll explain everything later," I answered.

"Ella's with you? Please can I come see her?" She smiled up at me.

"Yeah, sure. Where is she then?" I agreed.

"With Harry," She bit her lip, "But I think he's asleep."

She lead me over to his room and opened the door silently, as we tiptoed in. Tables were tipped everywhere and frames were smashed on the floor with Harry lying on the bed in the middle and Emily on his chest.

"He's coping well," I muttered, sighing.

"Well, he is known for throwing things around when he gets angry. And you haven't seen half of it," Perrie replied.

 

Author's Message:

So what do you think Danielle's planning?

Hope you liked the chapter, sorry the bit at the end wasn't so good. It's really hard to write a sad chapter when you're happy.

I will write a chapter after this and no matter the date, the chapter I post after will skip to Harry's birthday.

Question: Who's your favourite bromance between the boys?

Me: Narry
