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?

Danielle's P.O.V

To: Harry

Come see Ella. She wants to see you. x

I sent Harry a text message a day later, making sure that Ella didn't notice. What I'd told him was a lie but the two of them were like my power couple; they just had to make it up.

She was asleep so I left my phone on the sofa when I got up to make me and Liam some breakfast.

"She'll find out what you've done," Liam spoke, making me jump out of my skin.

"Not necessarily," I replied.

"You didn't have to do anything," He continued, pulling me in for a hug.

"I know," I sighed, "But she's my sister."

"I love you," He whispered against my hair.

"I love you too, L-" I began.

"Danielle!" Ella screamed from in the living room, making my eyes bulge.

Liam pushed me in the direction and I sheepishly walked over to her.

"Yes?" I asked innocently.

"Don't even try that with me right now," She shook her head, irritated.

"Why were you even on my phone?" I frowned.

"I just wanted to check the time and it just came up. Why did you do it?"

"I-I'm sorry," I stammered.

"Sorry doesn't cut it this time. Stop lying to people and giving them false hope. Just don't talk to me," She spat, storming up the stairs.

Ella's P.O.V

It's been a few weeks since I last talked to Harry and it was the day before his birthday. After a long debate inside my head, I decided to finally talk to him and let him explain what he needs to.

To: SexyH (Haven't changed that yet)

I think we need to talk. What are you doing right now?

I turned over in bed and flipped my feet over the side, slipping out of my pyjamas and putting on some underwear. After I threw on some joggers and a tank top, I checked my phone and saw that Harry had replied.

From: SexyH

Nothing, why?xxx

Sighing, I thought over what I was about to say, double-checking that it was definitely the right thing for me to do.

To: SexyH

We need to talk, come over in an hour?

While waiting for his reply, I walked down the stairs, phone in hand, and walked over to where Liam was sat on the sofa. I rested my head on his lap, laying down, and he looked down at me, smiling slightly at the fact that I actually got out of bed for the first time since being here.

"Good, you're up. We're going out for a little while soon, do you want to come with?" Danielle asked as she came into the room.

"I'm fine, thanks," I answered.

From: SexyH

Sure, see you in a bit. I miss you. xxx

I quickly locked my phone so that neither of them would see my messages can stood up to make myself some breakfast. Taking a bite out of my toast, I flipped onto my music and plugged my earphones in.

I'm sorry if I say I need ya

But I don't care I'm not scared of love

'Cause when I'm not with you I'm weaker

Is that so wrong? Is it so wrong?

That you make me strong

*An hour later*

I was lazing around on the sofa just watching TV when the doorbell rang. I took a deep breath before standing up and going to open it, being met with a face that brought so much hurt yet I missed so much.

"Hi," He smiled.

"Come in," I opened the door and closed it behind him, following him into the lounge.

I turned the TV off and turned to him, feeling the awkwardness grow.

"What did you want to know?" He asked.

"Whatever your explanation is," I calmly spoke through gritted teeth.

"It's not what you think-" I cut him off.

"Just get on with it."

*

"If you mess up again, Styles," I warned and he laughed.

"I wont, I promise," He pulled me into his arms and gave me a tight hug.

"You're crushing me," I panted, making him laugh again and pull away.

I heard a cry and groaned, moving to stand up but Harry stopped me.

"I'll get her," He smiled and I nodded gratefully.

As he left the room, I heard a key being twisted in the lock and turned around a minute later to see Liam and Danielle.

"Who's upstairs?" Danielle asked.

"Harry," I answered simply, shrugging my shoulders.

"So you two are back together?" She raised her eyebrows.

"Sort of," I frowned.

"Good, so you're moving out," Liam teased.

"Rude," I gasped dramatically, "But yeah, I'm moving in with George."

"George?" Danielle narrowed her eyes, they hated each other.

"I honestly don't see what's wrong with him. And I'm not gonna move straight back in with Harry, am I?" I defended.

"Well, I won't be helping you move in if he's there," She completely ignored what I just told her.

"And that's why Liam's my favourite person in the whole wide world," I turned to him and batted my eyelashes.

"Do I have to?" He complained.

"If you want me out of your hair then, yes," I laughed.

*The next day*

Straight after that conversation, I'd taken a suitcase of clothes and the basic stuff that I'd needed and driven over to George's shared house. Then I'd spent the rest of the day getting to know the other boys and they were really nice and genuine people from what I'd learnt.

"I know you catch a lot of hearts, baby, got them lining up tonight

You got them all revolving right around you like a thousand satellites..."

"I get it, George. You can sing," I laughed, as we climbed into his car.

"Where do you wanna go then?" He asked, rolling out of the drive.

"Umm, I need a new dress. You should know good places for that," I replied.

"Not really, good thing we brought Jaymi," He chuckled.

"Miss Selfridges," Jaymi spoke, not looking up from his phone.

"Off we go then," George dictated.

We drove over to where all the shops were and George parked the car up. The three of us walked into Miss Selfridges and George trailed behind as Jaymi helped me pick out some nice dresses.

I went into the changing room and tried on one of the dresses, opening the curtains to show the two boys.

"Too short," George commented and I rolled my eyes.

"Try on the one that you picked out," Jaymi suggested and I nodded, going back in and changing dresses.

"This one?" I asked.

"Perfect," Jaymi smiled.

"Even shorter..." George trailed off.

I turned around so that I could see myself in the mirror and knew I had to buy the dress; It was white lace with sleeves that stopped at my elbows and could easily be toned down by a pair of black combat boots.

After changing back into my normal clothes, I walked over to the till and handed the lady the dress. When I was about to pay her, George reached over and slipped a £30 pound note into her hand.

"Keep change," He smiled, dimples popping, and picked the bag up from the counter, leading me out of the store.

I picked up a pair of black lace-up combat boots from a shoe store which I managed to pay for this time before we left back home.

"I'm going to get ready, I'll see you in a bit," I told them and walked into my room.

From: SexyH

Skype me xxx

Opening up my laptop, I sent a quick reply.

To: SexyH

Give me two minutes x

I clicked on Harry's contact and sat down on the bed.

"Happy birthday," I smiled.

"Thanks, were you getting ready?" He asked.

"Yeah," I laughed.

"Sorry, babe," He smirked.

"I'm still here, I'll just be on the other side of the camera," I explained.

"Okay, was there anything you needed for tonight?"

"Oh, yeah, could you bring my leather jacket for me, please?" I remembered.

"'Course."

"Don't make any plans for tomorrow," I told him, sitting down in front of the laptop, pulling the mirror next to me.

"Why?"

"I'm taking you out and don't even try to ask where."

"Wasn't planning on it."

*

"Thanks for the lift, G," I smiled, giving him a quick hug and getting out of the car.

I told Danielle I'd go over to hers first so she could try out this new hairstyle on me. As I had a spare key, I unlocked the door and walked straight through.

 "Liam, get up!" I shook him awake from where he was sleeping on the sofa.

"Five more minutes," He mumbled.

"No, Liam, c'mon," I tried to pull him up.

"Shh," He managed to pull me onto him and keep me so I couldn't disturb him from sleep.

"Ella, what are you doing?" Danielle laughed as she walked into the room.

"Oh, ya know, just trying to wake Liam up," I rolled my eyes, trapped under his arm.

"Liam, get your lazy ass up," Danielle shook him and he opened his eyes slightly before closing them and letting me go.

"I know just the thing, let me text Zayn," I smirked.

To: Zayn

Come help me wake Liam up ;) x

A few minutes later, there was a knock at the door and both Zayn and Harry were standing in front of me.

"The buckets in the kitchen," I laughed and Zayn grinned, walking to go get them.

"Happy birthday, Haz," I smiled, letting him pull me into him for a hug.

"Where's Em?" He asked, pulling my feet onto his so that I could reach him.

"With George, I'm gonna stay the night here so you can come see her tomorrow," I told him and he nodded.

"Stay with me for the night," He whispered seductively in my ear.

"No, Harry," I rolled my eyes and heard a scream from the living room.

"This is all your fault," Liam whined as I walked through the door.

"Next time wake up then," I giggled.

"Whatever."

*

"Have I told you you look so beautiful tonight?" Harry's voice slurred in my ear as he held my hips behind me as I ordered a drink from the bar.

"Yes, Harry, about ten times," I laughed.

"Good," He nodded his head and twisted me to face him.

"You should get a glass of water," I raised my eyebrows and turned to take my drink from the bartender, giving him the money.

"Nah," He shook his head and led me back over to the dance floor, "That bartender was checking you out."

"It's not worth it, Harry," I shook my head at his now childish behaviour.

"But I can't really blame him when you look how you do right now," He shrugged.

"As you keep on saying," I rolled my eyes.

After roughly half an hour dancing and going to the bar, Harry was smashed and could barely walk.

"Guys, I'm gonna take Harry home. I'll see you in an hour or so, yeah?" I told them.

"We'll come with you," Zayn answered.

"Where are we going?" Harry asked as I said goodbye to Laura and Niall, knowing that I'd see my sister and Liam later.

"Home, be careful of where you're going," I warned, steadying him.

"I don't want to go home," He complained.

I scoffed. "Too bad."

"But it's my birthday," He pouted.

"Not anymore," I shook my head and pushed him into the car, Paul behind us.

"But-" Harry started.

"Harry, stop moaning an get in the car," Paul ordered and Harry shut up but continued to pout.

Perrie climbed in next to me and Zayn got in the front with Paul. I felt Harry tilt his head onto my shoulder and I turned to see him trying to fall asleep.

"Don't fall asleep," I nudged him and he sat back up.

Paul pulled up in front of the block of flats an escorted us inside, steadying Harry to make sure the papa didn't catch on to the fact that he was way past being a little tipsy. He stayed outside so that he could help me back over to Danielle and Liam's once I'd seen Harry to bed.

"Stay with me," Harry whined as I helped him undress.

"Not tonight, Harry."

“Please? I don’t want to sleep alone,” He frowned in a drunkenly manner.

“I’ll stay for an hour, whether you’re awake or not,” I sighed.

“Yay,” He smiled and pulled me onto him.

“I missed you so much,” He slurred, fiddling with the hem of my dress before his fingers trailed underneath.

“Harry,” I warned, rolling off of him and into the empty space on the bed.

I kicked my shoes off and tucked my feet up as Harry rested his head onto my stomach. He was flat out asleep within minutes and Zayn walked through the door.

“Do you still need Paul to help you home, it’s pretty crowded out there?” He whispered.

“No, let him go and help the others so he can at least get some sleep tonight. I’ll make my own way back,” I spoke in a hushed voice.

“Don’t leave,” Harry murmured.

“Looks like someone disagrees with your idea,” Zayn chuckled.

“Go to sleep, Harry,” I shook my head.

“You know Paul won’t let you do that, right?” Zayn raised his eyebrows.

“Fine, give me five minutes,” I waited for him to leave the room before quickly sliding from under Harry and placing a pillow under his head in replacement, “Good night, Harry.”

“G’night, beautiful. I love you…” He trailed off and I walked out of the room where Paul pulled me behind him and lead me out of the door.

“Ella, over here! How are you after Harry’s affair with Kendall Jenner?” A reporter screamed.

“Are you two still together? Or are you now in a relationship with George Shelley from the pop group, Union J?”

“Where’s your daughter?”

All of the questions were overwhelming, especially when they dragged Emily into it. I kept my head down so they couldn’t see the tears that slipped and continued walking over to Danielle and Liam’s where my sister was waiting on the doorstep.

“Thanks for helping her back, Paul,” She smiled.

“Yeah thanks, Paul,” I nodded as my sister wrapped an arm around me and the paps moved closer to the house.

“Don’t listen to what they say, Ella. Get a good night sleep, you two,” Paul walked away and climbed into his car.

I walked into the house without saying another word and sitting down on the sofa in the lounge, picking up my phone and going on twitter.

*No, I am not in a relationship with @GeorgeUJWorld so please stop asking, we’re just friends. x*

“I’m going to bed, see you in the morning, guys,” I stood up and made my way into the spare bedroom.

To: Georgey

Can you come and pick me up tomorrow, please? I left my car at yours  xx

I put my phone on the bed next to me and turned my alarm off so I could get more than five hours sleep.

From: Georgey

I’m going out for coffee tomorrow morning with my mum so could Josh do it?xx

To: Georgey

Ok, if it’s fine with him xx

*

“Hey,” I smiled as I climbed into Josh’s car.

“Hi, good time last night?” He asked.

“Yeah,” I laughed

“Bet you’re enjoying all the attention,” He smirked jokingly.

“Yeah, ‘cause I totally love waking up with a hangover to find myself all over the news, twitter, instagram and facebook,” I rolled my eyes sarcastically.

He laughed and turned the music up louder to annoy me.

“Josh, please turn it off, I have a banging headache,” I groaned and he shook his head.

“I love loud music first thing in the morning,” He grinned.

“Aha, noise cancelling headphones,” I held them up and plugged it into my phone, putting each in my ears to be met with a loud buzz.

“Wait, no, even worse,” I complained and immediately took them out.

I was glad to finally get out of the car and walked into the house, sitting down next to Jaymi, glaring at Josh.

“Someone’s in a mood,” He commented.

“You put me in a mood,” I retorted, feeling a buzz in my pocket.

From: SexyH

Come see me today xxx

“Mumma,” Emily stammered and I pulled her into my arms.

To: SexyH

I just got home so will do in a couple of hours x

*

“Harry," I giggled as he wrapped his arms around me tighter.

"Hmm?" He nuzzled his face into the crook of my neck, the sound of his voice vibrating against it.

I laughed again and heard my phone go off from on the bed next to me.

Let me get my phone," I laughed, slipping out of his hold and answering my phone, "Hello?"

"Ella, I need to talk to you," El answered.

"Why, what's wrong?" I asked.

"Nothing, I just need your advice. Are you with Harry?"

"Yeah."
"Bring him as well so he can keep Lou occupied, wouldn't want him to worry," She told me.

"Ok, I'll be over in a few. Just gotta get past all the paps and fans," I laughed half-heartedly.

"See you in a few."

"See you," I ended the call and turned to Harry, laying down and closing my eyes for a few seconds.

"You're going somewhere," He pouted.

"We are going somewhere," I corrected, his face lighting up.

I stood up and pulled him with me, glad I'd left Emily with George. We walked out of the apartment, our hands entwined and was met with bright flashes.

Harry moved me behind him and told me to keep my head down, keeping a strong hold of my hand so that I didn't fall behind.

"Harry, Ella! Over here!" Reporters shouted from everywhere but we just ignored them.

We continued our way over to my car but got blocked.

"Excuse me, please," Harry softly spoke at first but soon repeated it with a firmer voice when they ignored him.

He frowned as they ignored him yet again and started moving into the direction of his car. This time we walked quicker and managed to get over there and into it before the reporters could.

"Are you okay?" Harry asked, looking over at me.

"I'm fine, just drive before they get in our way again," I mumbled.

"Still don't know where we're going," He chuckled.

"Lou and El's," I answered.

He nodded and started up the car, driving in the direction that I'd told him. The car drive there was an uncomfortable silence so I decided to finally speak up.

"I never told you I was sorry."

"For what?" He frowned, my eyes focused on the way his hands gripped the steering wheel.

"For not letting you explain. If I would have, we wouldn't be where we are now," I guiltily spoke.

"None of this is your fault," He placed a hand on my thigh reassuringly, "I messed up. But let's not talk about this anymore."

I nodded and looked down at my phone.

From: Pezza

Skype tonight? Missing you guys so much already :) - P & Z xxx

To: Pezza

Love to. Hope you guys are having and I bet it's nice weather out there. Missing you too xxx

They'd left for their week away earlier this week and we'd been talking over the phone for the past few days.

We pulled up in front of the house and walked over the door, giving it a gentle knock. El opened it and smiled weakly, inviting us in.

"Louis' in the kitchen," El told Harry as we walked into their room.

"What's wrong?" I asked the minute I closed the door.

"I don't feel too good," She whimpered.

"It's probably just midday sicknesses, I got them around your stage," I smiled.

"No, I mean I really don't feel well. It kills," She continued.

"Lay down and get some rest and if you feel worse then I'll take you to the doctor's later," I offered.

"No, I need to keep myself occupied," She shook her head and stood up, me following her out of the room.

*

I heard a scream from the kitchen and gasped, standing up and running to the kitchen.

"El, are you okay?" I breathed, my eyes widening at her position on the floor; blacked out with a tiny puddle of blood forming on her clothes.

I picked up my phone and dialled 999, asking for an ambulance, explaining the situation and them telling me they'd be over soon. After, I rang Louis.

"Lou, you need to come home now, quick," I blurted.

"Why? Ella, what happened?" He panicked.

"Just come back," I replied and I could almost hear him drop the phone.

Five minutes later, the paramedics knocked on the door and I rushed to let them in so they could take El to hospital. As they were lifting her up, Louis ran into the room and looked down at her, tears forming in his eyes.

"W-what's going on?" His voice cracked.

"I'm not entirely sure but we'll find out soon," I answered, shaking him out of his shock and taking him out to Harry's car where he was already waiting for us.

"Hospital," Louis whispered as we climbed into the car.

*Six months later*

“Haz, you could do with a good shave,” I laughed as he pressed my hand to his face.

“Well thanks,” He rolled his eyes and leaned in for a kiss.

“Nu-uh,” I shook my head and pulled my head away.

“I’ll be back, two seconds,” He stood up just as Emily awoke, frowning over at us clearly annoyed at us.

“Someone’s grumpy this morning,” I laughed.

Standing up, I pulled on some shorts and a white tank top, pulling my hair up into a top knot bun. I looked over at Emily as she babbled on, using words that nobody could understand.

“Looks like this August’s gonna be busy,” Harry spoke as he walked over to her.

“I know, Danielle’s birthday was only a few days ago and mine’s in ten days,” I groaned, “And Luke was born about a week ago.”

“Don’t sound so down about it, babe. Just remember that Louis will always be older than you,” He smirked.

“And I’ll always be older than you,” I pointed out.

“Ugh, why does she say everything but my name?” He whined.

“She can say one word,” I answered.

“It’s still annoying.”

“And good thing you said about Louis, ‘cause they’re coming over later.”

“We’ll make cakes!”

“You mean burn cakes?” I raised my eyebrows.

“It’s worth a try.”

“You said that last time and look what happened.”

“That’s because she always wants something,” He always blamed it on someone else.

“Say no then,” I sarcastically suggested.

“I can’t say no to my special little girl,” He lifted her into his arms and ran into the kitchen. It was just a disaster waiting to happen.

*

“Daddy,” Harry spoke, irritated.

“Mumma?” Emily replied, annoying him further.

“No, daddy,” Harry corrected.

“Harry, the cakes are burning,” I rolled my eyes from where I’d already began to make a new batch.

“Shit,” He cursed.

“Harry!” I warned.

“Daddy,” Emily grinned, as if she knew how to say it the whole time.

“Yay! Finally,” Harry walked over to her and spun her around in his arms.

“Don’t let my cakes burn,” I warned as I went to open the door.

“Hi,” El smiled as she walked in with Luke in her arms.

“Hi, how are you?” I asked, giving her a hug.

“Good, tired though,” She laughed as Louis walked in behind her.

“Em, say it again,” Harry pestered as we entered the living room.

“What part of don’t let the cakes burn do you not get?” I asked sarcastically as I went to pull them out of the oven.

*

“Come with me tomorrow,” Harry pleaded.

“You know I would but it’s not ideal,” I sighed, getting distracted from my book again.

“But it was your birthday yesterday and I have to leave again.”

“I know but you’ll be home in couple of months. And I’ll come and see you for a week next month,” I tried to make him feel better.

“I just miss you so much and I’m never around to watch her grow up anymore,” He rested his head on my shoulder.

“I know, Haz and we miss you too. But you can’t let us stop you from fulfilling your dreams,” I told him.

“I suppose.”

“I know you’re tired and you can turn the light off as soon as I finish this page.”

He nodded but I felt his head slide down onto my stomach as he began to slightly drift away. It took me about a minute to finish reading and I flicked the switch from on the wall next to me. Lifting the covers up and over me and Harry, I ran my fingers through his head and thought about how hectic the year had been so far.

 

Author’s Message:
I have NOTHING against Taylor Swift, except for the way she treated Harry after their break up. So if you’re a Swiftie, it’s just how her character is portrayed in the book.

I know it's not very clear but El had a pregnancy scare. I didn't know how to write it out so I tried to hint at it.

Happy birthday, Harry! No more teenage direction now, though. And how much does everyone love Midnight Memories?!
