My dad has left to go to a business dinner and I haven't talked to him since he unfairly punished me and forbid me to see Harry again. He's being completely unfair! My phone vibrates next to me and I see that it's Harry. My dad forgot to take it away and hopefully he doesn't remember.
I pick up the phone on the second ring.
"Harry!" I say excitedly into the phone.
"Ashley! Are you ok?" He asks and I can hear the concern in his voice.
"My dad knows about us, about everything." I blurt out before I have the chance to stop myself.
"There was a picture of us on the front page of a magazine."
"Oh Ashley I'm so sorry what happened? What'd he say?"
"Well a bunch of photographers came and were asking questions and taking pictures. And when we got back to our room my dad told me..." I took a breath before finishing.
"Told you what?"
"That I wasn't allowed to see you again!"
The other end stayed silent as I waited for Harry to respond.
"Is your dad there now?"
"No he's at a business dinner and won't be home till around 10. But there's a bunch of photographers out front."
I already know what Harry is thinking and he wants to come see me but it's not possible.
"Ok just hang tight."
And before I have time to ask what he's up to he hangs up.
I've been waiting for 20 minutes and there is still no sign of Harry. I then hear a knock on my door and I run to it flinging the door open only to see Niall on the other side.
"Niall what are you doing here?" I ask completely confused on what he's doing here.
"Harry told me what happened and I figured you could use a friend." He says stepping farther into the room.
I lead him to the couch and we both sit down not speaking to one another.
I'm the one to break the silence "How'd you get here with all the photographers out front?"
"There's a back entrance and besides your dad said you couldn't see Harry." I nod my head confused at where he's going with this.
"He never said you couldn't see the rest of us." He smiles at me and that's when I finally feel my self relax.
"Thank you Niall." I let myself fall into his arms as he embraces me into a hug. My phone vibrating is what breaks us out of our moment. I look down at the caller id and see that it's Harry again.
"Hello?" I answer looking sideways at Niall.
"Hey so I checked out the hotel and it looks like you were right. There are cameras everywhere. So it looks like I won't be able to stop by, you sure you're going to be alright?" He asks and I can tell he's concerned.
I look over at Niall and smile "Ya I'll be alright."
