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

"Babe, are you ready? Perrie and El are here," Harry called up the stairs

"Yeah, just coming," I replied, turning back to Emily, "Em, sit still so I can put your shoes on."

She continued to wriggle about on my lap and I sighed.

"If you don't keep still, you won't be able to come seen your nan," I smirked when she stopped moving, slipping on her little sandals.

"Daddy, new shoes," She ran to him the minute her feet touched the ground.

"And they're very pretty," He laughed, taking her in his arms.

"Auntie Perrie, auntie El!" She giggled and Harry set her down again.

I shook my head as she ran full speed at the two girls, continuing to lace up my Converse.

"Right, all the bags are packed up into the audi. Drive safely and I'll meet you down there," I smiled, walking over to Harry.

"When do I not drive safely?" He chuckled innocently.

"Do you seriously want me to answer that question?" I asked, cocking an eyebrow.

"I guess not, have fun, babe," He smiled.

"Will do, don't forget to give Emily lunch before you leave and take a pillow and blanket so she can sleep in the car," I reminded.

"I won't, I promise. I've done this before, remember?" He rolled his eyes.

"Yeah, I guess. Just make sure she doesn't attack Niall or anything," I grinned.

"Now go, the Range Rover's waiting in the underground parking so you don't have to get out through the fans," He told me.

"Love you," I looked up at him and stood up on my tiptoes, pressing a kiss to his lips.

"Love you, too. See you in a bit," I smiled and walked over to the girls.

*

"This one's nice," El held one out.

"We only came here to pick up the dress, not buy more," I rolled my eyes.

"I wanna get married," She pouted, folding her arms over her chest. God, she was so much like Louis.

"You speak to peter pan about that, then," I laughed.

"No, I don't. I just want a princess dress," She grinned.

"He could agree to that," I pondered over the thought for a few seconds.

"You're the last one out of us three to get engaged and the first one to get married," Perrie smiled, referring to me, her and Danielle as Laura and El trailed behind.

"Hi, we're here for a dress under C Thorpe," I told the lady at the front desk.

"Ah, yes, if you'd come with me," The lady smiled warmly and lead us over to the private fitting rooms, "If you could get changed into the dress, then we can see if any alterations are needed."

I nodded and walked into the changing room as the girls took seats on one of the mini sofas. When I'd changed into the dress, I giggled at my reflection in the mirror, knowing that I'd made the right choice of this being the one. Looking in the mirror one last time, I pulled the curtain back gently and stepped out, everyone's heads turning to me. 

"You look beautiful," Perrie gushed, walking over to me.

"You really do, the dress is amazing," Laura smiled.

"Thanks," I blushed, using my hand to sweep a few strands of hair from my face.

"It's not as tight around the stomach as it was before, would you like it to be tightened?" The shop assistant asked, adding a compliment in at the end.

"That would be lovely. But, um, does this need to be signed for because it's under my mum's name and she's not with us?" I asked, biting my lip.

"No, it's fine. I received a call from your mother letting us know to expect you," She replied.

"Give us a twirl then, girl," El laughed, suddenly appearing next to me.

I giggled and spun around slowly. 

"Well, miss Thorpe, is there anything else you would like to change? I think it will look perfect after we've tightened the bodice," The lady questioned.

"Yeah, she'll do that," Danielle answered for me, seeming in a hurry for whatever reason.

"Okay, then. Let's get you remeasured," She smiled.

I walked into the changing room and Grace, the shop assistant, took my measurements and told us to come back in an hour. 

"Let's go get lunch then," I suggested and we all walked back out to the car.

"Can I drive?" Danielle asked.

"Maybe when you get your drivers' license, just 'cause Liam's teaching you to drive doesn't mean I trust you with my car. I love this car-" I rolled my eyes, quickly climbing into the drivers' seat before she could.

"But the audi's your favourite," She cut me off.

"You're making it sound like we have loads of cars. We have two, I use this one most of the time, Harry uses the audi. The audi is his favourite but he'd still rather you didn't smash this one up considering how much it cost."

She shut up after that and I pulled out my phone and sent Harry a quick text. 

"What the hell?" I whispered to myself, not finding Harry's contact name anywhere in my phone.

When I scrolled through all my contacts and landed on 'h' I laughed and remembered that Harry had changed everyone's contact name including his.

To: Haz ;)

The dress is having a few adjustments made to it so we'll be to your mum's a bit later than planned. We're gonna have lunch first so just eat without us. Ring me when you get there xxxxx

I put my phone back in the glovebox in front of Danielle before starting the car and driving to the closest McDonald's. We all got out of the car and I took my phone and purse out of the glovebox as we all proceeded to walk inside. It was sunny out so we all had sunglasses on but at least Perrie was bound to get noticed so we sat down at the back of the place. Me and El left to order and I checked my phone while we were queueing. 

From: Haz ;)

So when will I see this amazing dress of yours? :) Don't worry, Lou's driving so I can't crash the car while texting you. We're almost at mum's and I know she's excited to see you. Be safe, love you xxxxx

To: Haz ;) 

Bad luck for the groom to see the dress before the wedding ;) Is Emily alright? Love you too xxxxx

I quickly sent the message just before me and El went up to the counter to order. After ordering our food and paying, we took the trays back over to our table. 

From: Haz ;)

Yeah, Em's fine. We carry bad luck with us regardless. What harm is it gonna do?xxxxx

I rolled my eyes and put my phone away, leaving the text while I ate.

"So, what's left to do then?" Laura asked, taking a bite out of her burger.

"Well, the venue's booked and the dresses are done. Harry's doing the honeymoon. Um, I need to get Emily's dress and they boys' suits and basically everything else. That's what this whole trips for," I answered, laughing nervously at the end.

"Well, we have a lot to do then," Perrie laughed.

*

"So, you won't tell anyone?" My sister asked.

I bit my lip. "But, Harry..."

"Please," She looked at me and I sighed, nodding. 

"Come on, the others are waiting," I walked out of the wedding shop bathroom and over to where everyone was waiting for us.

"Let's go," Perrie smiled cheerfully.

I yawned, quickly covering my mouth my hand as we stepped outside, the sun high in the sky even though it was still only April.

"I can drive if you want," Laura offered.

"It'll be easier if I do 'cause I'd have to stay awake to tell you the way even if you did drive. Thanks anyway," I smiled.

We climbed into the car and I started the engine, putting my phone on the music player compartment so we had music to listen to. I pulled out of the parking space and began the long drive to Cheshire.

When we pulled over at bp to get some food and drink, I saw two missed calls from Harry. Laura and Perrie went into the shop as I rang Harry back. 

"Hello?" He answered.

"Still not checking the caller id before answering?" I laughed.

"Ella," He chuckled.

"Right, well we're about an hour away and we've just stopped to get some drink and stuff," I explained.

"We're at mum's now and she's adamant about waiting for you to come until we eat," He laughed.

"Make sure you do, we've already eaten and we're gonna be full after eating the snacks we get."

"I'll talk to her," He agreed.

"I'm gonna go, Haz. I'll see you in a bit."

"Okay, babe. Love you."

"Love you too. Bye," I smiled even though he couldn't see me.

Harry's P.O.V

"Harry," Ella mumbled, reaching out to grab his arm.

"Babe, go back to sleep. I'm just going to check on Emily," I sat down on the bed.

Her eyes fluttered open fully and she sat up next to me, staring deep into my eyes. 

"Stay for a bit," She failed to stay up and her head ended up falling sideways into my lap.

"Look at you, you can't even hold your own weight," I chuckled.

I climbed under the sheets and lifted her with me, pulling her close and rubbing light circles on her forearm with my thumb. I waited until her breathing became more regular before shifting my arm slightly;  I decided to get out of bed and walk over to the room next door, where Emily was staying.

"Hey, Emmy," I smiled over at her, lifting her out of bed and into my arms.

"Mummy," She pouted, her lip beginning to tremble slightly. 

"Mummy's sleeping angel, what's wrong?" I cooed, rubbing her back.

"Mummy," She repeated and couldn't hold her tears in any longer.

This always happened, whoever went to check on her when she was in a mood was never good enough. Ella normally had this problem in the mornings when I was at work or when I was on tour but it happened to everyone, even Niall. 

"Hey, hey. Everything's okay," I bobbed her up and down in an attempt to get her to stop and failing.

"Mummy, mummy," She repeated over and over again, her voice getting louder each time.

"Shh, Em. I'll take you to see mummy," I sighed and walked over to the door.

Her cries stopped and only her sniffles could be heard as I took her back into the other room.

"I'm up, I'm up," Ella mumbled when we entered the room, although her face was still stuffed under a pillow. 

"I tried-"

"It's fine, I know what she's like, I get it all the time," She twisted over to her back and held her arms out.

I passed Emily over to her as she lifted up the covers. Emily curled up in a ball on her chest and she laughed, bringing the covers down.

"Hi, princess. Have you been causing daddy grief?" She laughed, now wide awake.

Ella's P.O.V

"Right, just to confirm, best man?" I asked Harry through the phone.

"Lou," He answered.

"And usher?"

"Liam."

"So, groomsmen then?"

"Niall, Zayn and your brother."

"Okay thanks, Haz. I'm gonna go but we'll talk later, yeah?"

"Yeah, don't have too much fun without me," He laughed.

"More like you don't have fun without me. You're the one in America!" I giggled.

"Bye, babe."

"Byye," I ended the call and went onto my contacts, "Louis' number ...."

I gave her all the other numbers with names and then turned my phone, looking at the large notepad in front of us.

"That's all names an numbers, seating plan, details for an appointment with the florist, venue arrangements, everybody invited is coming except for my nan and the place cards are half done," I listed, smiling at the end.

"Shopping?" Anne asked.

"I guess we'll have to go and get her dress," I nodded, "Emily!"

"Mummy," She came running in with chocolate cake all round her face.

"What happened?" I laughed.

"Auntie El," She grinned.

"Let's go and get you cleaned up then," I smiled and she held her arms out.

I lifted her up and began walking into the bathroom where I cleaned her face with her flannel until she was spotlessly clean. We left the bathroom and went back into the other room where everyone was waiting. As we all had our shoes on, we decided to just go straight to the wedding shop where they sold dresses for children.

"Pwetty," She giggled, when I began putting the first dress over her head in the changing room.

*

"Well, just be careful, yeah? Take a leaf out of Liam's book" I spoke worriedly to Harry through the phone.

"I'll be fine, I promise," He assured me but I knew he was rolling his eyes.

"Yeah, but just remember what happened last time," I sighed, "Let me know if anything happens."

"Yeah, I will. I'll speak to you tomorrow. Bye."

"Goodbye, Harry," I hit the end button and almost threw my phone across the room but then I remembered something.

To: Liam

Please make sure he doesn't do anything stupid. X

I put my phone on the desk next to me and continued to look through my emails on my laptop

"Mummy," Emily called and I turned to look at her.

"Yes, princess?"

"Where daddy?" She asked, holding up her hands.

"He's gone away with your uncles for a bit, he'll be home soon, though," I smiled.

"Cuddles?" She grinned.

"Come on, then," I lifted her onto my lap and she rested her head on my chest.

From: Liam

I'll make sure of it x

My hands ran across the keyboard as I sent ended the email to my brother.

'.. the 27th. Hope everything's okay in America

Ella xx'

I looked down at Emily and saw her asleep so I put her on the bed and tucked her in before moving back over to my laptop.

"What's got you all worked up?" My sister asked as she walked into the room.

"I'm not worked up," I mumbled.

"Well, you clearly are. What's up?" She pressed, placing a hand on each of my shoulders.

"It's hard keeping secrets from him, Dan. I know you don't speak to Liam everyday while he's away like me and Harry do but surely you must feel some guilt."

"I do, but I promise you'll be able to tell him soon," She answered.

"He's gonna figure it out sometime, Liam's hardly incapable of putting two and two together," I told her, looking up in her direction.

"I'll tell him soon, you have my word," She smiled, "Anyway, I found this waiting for you at the door."

"What?" I raised my eyebrows as she passed me an Easter basket.

"Just look through it," She laughed and walked out of the room.

I moved over to sit on the end of the bed and admired the Easter basket; no one had gotten me one of these ever since I was eight, and that's when the memories came flooding back. This was my basket. The one I'd always used as a child - I'd find it full at the end of my bed on Easter morning and then I'd empty it's contents a few hours later for the egg hunt my mum and dad would always set up for us. A huge grin erupted onto my face at the memories before I looked at what was inside.

'You didn't think I'd forgotten about you, did you? I know this is early but I thought I'd give it to you now. Sorry I can't be with you while you look through this but I just want you to remember that I love you.

- Haz xx'

I smiled and put the note down next to me on the bed, picking up the first thing my fingers came across. Lifting it up, I saw the sicth and final Mortal Instruments book and stared at it in awe. There was a piece of ribbon wrapped around it with a litle card attached to it.

'Don't ask. I just know people.'

I flicked through the pages to make sure he hadn't just somehow got the cover and put it onto one of the other books as a joke. But all the lines and acknowledgements were different which just made me question him even more. How did he do this? It's not due out until the day before the wedding, my mum had even pre-ordered it as a gift to me for the 'big day'. I had a huge grin plastered onto my face as I thought back to the conversation me and Harry had about the whole plot of the series; it wasn't really his cup of tea but he'd listened and shared with me his opinion on things which made me even more grateful of my wonderful boyfriend. Even if he didn't understand the things I was going on about and would often be jealous of how Jace seemed to have no flaws, it showed that he still cared for me enough to listen. I'd often read a page or two to him although that was only because he needed to get to sleep and hearing about Shadowhunters bored him. I looked closer at the third page of the book and my eyes bulged as my eyes scanned over the text.

'Dedicated to my biggest fan, Ella Styles.'

Even though it wasn't technically my name, I knew that my favourite author of all time was talking about me, and Harry was the cause of it all. The book dropped through my fingers as my mouth once again fell open. What did I do to deserve such an amazing boyfriend? I lifted the book back up off the floor and put it with the card I'd read earlier. Another smile appeared on my face as I saw the Galaxy Easter egg I almost brought myself the other day but quickly thought against it after my diet came to mind.

'Forget that shitty diet. You're perfect just the way you are'

I blushed as if he could see me and looked down at the diet shake I had to consume and closed the lid, kicking it across the floor and ripping open the top of the box; I grabbed one of the chocolate bars and broke off a block, placing it into my mouth with a small smirk. I picked the next thing up and giggled to myself. Trust Harry to get me his own DVD. I rolled my eyes when I looked at the sticky note attached to it but couldn't help the small laugh that escaped my mouth.

'Because I know how much you love me ;)'

I reached the last thing in the basket and frowned at the cold metal in my hand and odd shaping. When I lifted the object to eye level, I was even more confused - a key? What the hell? We already live together and it can't be a new house 'cause we just moved into one. Still confused, I put the basket on the floor and walked down the stairs. I stood in front of the four girls, waving the key in front of them.

"Do you know anything about this?" I asked, raising my eyebrows.

"Not at all," El tried to keep a straight face but burst out laughing at the end.

"Please just tell me," I pouted playfully.

"We have been sworn to secrecy," Perrie giggled, shaking her head.

"Aww plea-" I began but cut off.

I was pulled into them as they pulled me in for a hug.

"We love you, Ella!" They all shouted and I laughed.

"I love you all, too. But stop trying to change the subject," I smiled, wrapping my arms around all of them.

"And we love you soo much that we're going to give you the best hen night ever," Laura grinned. 

"Yeah, and no matter what, we're not letting that Styles take you away from us," Perrie laughed.

*

"How did you do it?" I asked excitedly.

"Hello to you, too," He chuckled over the Skype conversation

"Harryyyyy, how did you do it?"

"It doesn't matter how I did it, just that I did," He smiled sarcastically.

"Pleease?" I urged, cocking an eyebrow.

"It's a secret, if I told you then it would no longer be a secret."

"Ugh, you're so frustrating sometimes," I groaned.

"I'm still waiting on that hello," He teased.

"Hi," I smiled, starting the conversation again, "I never said thanks foor what you did so, thank you."

"No problem, babe. So what's the important news?" He asked.

"There isn't any, I just wanted to talk to you and it got your attention so it worked," I shrugged.

We continued to talk for a few more minutes before I saw Emily running back and forth down the hall in front of the bedroom door. 

"Emily!" I called and she came running into the room towards me, grinning.

"Mummy," She giggled and climbed into my lap, "Look like a princess."

"Yes, but why are you wearing your dress?" I laughed.

"Auntie El made me," She smiled.

"I'm sure she did," I rolled my eyes at her.

"Daddy!" She squealed when she finally spotted Harry on the computer screen.

"Hi, angel," He smiled.

"Miss oo," She answered.

While they talked for a bit, I managed to get Emily's dress over her head and put her into her babygrow. They continued their 'conversation' which mainly consisted of Harry talking while his little girl listened so I stood up and started to tidy the place up a bit. I heard a light yawn escape from Emily's mouth and quickly looked over at her - she was sprawled over the laptop keyboard and probably sending Harry a message of random numbers with her stomach as it pressed down. I laughed, finding the fact that she thought she was actually closer to Harry that way adorable as she blew a kiss to the screen. 

"You tired, princess?" I asked.

"Talk daddy," She shook her head and I sighed.

"Daddy's got an interview to go to," I sighed as she looked at me with pleading eyes.

"I'll talk to you tomorrow, Em," Harry smiled at her.

"Otay, bye," She waved and ran out of the room.

"That doesn't look like sleeping!" I shouted after her but she was already halfway down the stairs.

"Looks like you're gonna have a lot of fun over the next week," Harry teased.

"Just 'cause she listens to you. Maybe you should take her with you next time," I grumbled.

"She's not that bad," He chuckled.

"She is, just not in front of you."

"And what's this about an interview that I'm supposed to go to?" He questioned.

"Well, she was never going to sleep if she thought you were still here."

 

Author's Message:

Sorry for the long wait! I was planning on posting this sooner but I ran out of ideas halfway through and couldn't think of what to write for a couple of days.

My updates are now going to be less frequent as I'm starting to prepare for when I start this series from the start again. It will be very different from the first book and even a few of the main characters are changing. So it's basically starting afresh using a vague outline from this. I've posted the blurb up on my Wattpad and it's the same user as on here. The story is called Happily if you want to go check out the blurb.
