24. Definitely not gay
"EMMA! Wake up!" I yelled at her to wake up.
"What do you want Harry?" She asked annoyed
"I need to ask you something"
"You are not going to propose are you?" She asked and I knew I had her attention
"You wish" I said playfully and she turned around so she was looking at me, I sat down next to her.
"What do you think about me asking Hailey out on a date?"
"Oh my God, Harry! I think it's a great idea" she smiled excitedly
"I was thinking since it's Monday and we leave on Thursday I could take her out tomorrow so she can pack on Wednesday" I explained
"Oh no, I'm sorry but you can take her out when we're in LA"
"What are you talking about?" I asked confused
"Look, Hailey and I will be busy, we had some stuff already planned out, and she’ll be exhausted" Emma explained taking her phone from the nightstand
"Busy doing what stuff?" I asked curious
"Just stuff. Actually I have to wake Hailey up because it takes ages to get her out of bed"
"I could wake her up" I suggested smiling
"No you can't"
"Why not?" I protested
"Because she sleeps naked"
"I could still wake her up"
"Oh my God Harry I'm kidding! You are such a pervert I'm not letting you anywhere near Hailey!" Emma laughed
"Of course I was kidding too, what kind of person do you think I am?!" I laughed with her
"Guys could you keep it down? I'm trying to sleep" Both Emma and I turned to look at Hailey leaning on the door frame rubbing her eyes. I couldn't decide whether she looked sexy or cute in the morning... I'll stick to both
"Actually you are taking a shower, right now" Emma said
"It's nine in the fucking morning, too early for me" Hailey protested
"Hailey! We got stuff to do remember?"
"Just go get ready!"
"Alright, alright. You are so bossy" Hailey said and went back to her room
“Are you sure I have to wait until we’re in LA?” I whined
“Positive, now get out so I can get ready” She kicked me out
“You are so mean” I muttered, but did as I was told and went back to my room.
“Emma, are you ready?” I knocked on her door and waited
“Yeah, I’ll meet you downstairs” I heard her say before I walked down the stairs toward the kitchen. I took a bottle of water from the fridge and drank it all. Since Zayn found out about me throwing up I stopped doing it. He reminded me of my brother, because they are both so protective over me, and when he found out I couldn’t imagine what it would be like if Mike found out, so I stopped. I heard Emma’s footsteps and was snapped out of my thoughts.
“Ready to go?” She asked
“Sure” I nodded and we were out the door. I got in the passenger seat and turned the radio on. Emma and I needed to have a choreography done for Friday and we hadn’t done anything, so we were doing it before we went back to LA. We spend all three days doing it, but it didn’t bother me. Dancing was something that I really enjoyed doing. We finished and it looked something like this , nothing big but it was what we needed.
“So do you have everything packed already?” Liam asked me as we all sat in Harry’s living room.
“Almost. I just left out things that I’ll need tomorrow before we go.” I explained
He nodded “I hate packing, it’s exhausting” He added
“I don’t hate it, I actually like it, don’t know why” I shrugged
“Uhm, Hailey?” I heard Harry ask from behind me. I looked over my shoulder at him “Yes?”
He signaled to follow him so I did. He went into the backyard and sat down in one of the chairs. I followed his actions.
“So?” I asked curious. I had spent more time with Harry the last few days and it was nice having his company. As much as I want to take a break from guy and push him away I can’t and as hard as it is for me to admit it, I think I’m starting to like him, but I don’t want to tell Emma until I’m sure about it, because if I do she’ll just keep bugging me about it.
“Well, I’ve been wanting to ask you… uhm, would you want to go on a date? With me?” He asked and he was clearly nervous. My lips curled up into a grin and I shook my head.
“I thought you were gay” I said trying to annoy him. He frowned “What?” It took a moment for him to realize that I was kidding “You’re pure evil” He shook his head just like I had done a few minutes ago “I’m serious, will you go on a date with me?” He asked again.
“With one condition…” I held my finger up “… you need to prove me that you’re not gay” He smiled, leaned in and kiss me. I didn’t get what was happening at first but after a few seconds I started kissing back. One of his hands was on my hip lower back and the other on my cheek. Mine found their way to the back of his head and started playing with his hair, curling it up between my fingers. He bit my lip causing me to gasp and allowing his tongue to find its way into my mouth. After a while we pulled away to catch our breath, his forehead against mine. Here’s something I’m not going to deny. He is an amazing kisser. “Definitely not gay” I said out of breath.
“Is that a yes?” He asked “I guess it is.” I smiled and looked up him. He was staring back at me his eyes a bright shade of green. “We should go back” I said and he agreed, we went back inside and the night went on just as if nothing had happened, except for the occasional glances between Harry and me.
