Chapter 16 (Jealousy At Nando's)
Its been an hour since we played at the park, and here we are sitting on the couch watching Hunger Games Deluxe. It was amusing to watch Selena go 'Oh my gosh, whats gonna happen next? I love this scene. You suck!' and have those other reactions. There was one when I had to comfort Selena because she burst into tear. Why? Because when they had the competition, Candice found Rue caught in a net. But When Candice freed her, a man came up and shot Rue with a spear. it was sad. It was already 11:29 Pm. We have reservations at Nando's at 2:00.
"Hey Haz." she asked as her voice became cracked a little bit.
"When do we have to leave?" I can tell she wanted to know when our date was, well for me its a date but for her its a friendly date together.
"1:00" I replied with a cheeky smile. Once she heard me say those words, she got off the couch fast.
"Oh then I should get ready." She dashed out the door and up the stair s into her room. I laughed at her but in a good way. If she is getting ready then I should get ready too. I stood up from the couch and dashed up to my room. As I walked into my washroom, I found Selena holding a bottle of shampoo. My shampoo.
"Um Sel?" I said as I knocked on my washroom door to get her attention.
"Yeah?" she asked as she looked at me with a smile played on her lips. I became confused.
"Why do you have me shampoo?" I stood there completely out of the world confused. Wait let me think. Her holding my shampoo bottle that's made for men, her smiling, her in my washroom. I think I know whats she doing.
"Can I borrow it please Haz?" I chuckled. Selena wanting to take a shower using a bottle of shampoo clearly for men. Noo she just want to play with it.
"Why?" I laughed out, I walked up to her as she took a step back.
"Because I like how I smell like cologne, and your going to like smelling like a flower. Were switching gender shampoo bottles. You use for woman and I use for men OK got it bye." She handed me a shampoo bottle that was for woman. Herbal Essence? she walked out the door. I quickly hurried out of my washroom and shouted.
"I will enjoy smelling cologne from you, but I will enjoy myself even more once I get all flowery scented." I heard Selena giggle from the other room. I smiled. I got into my washroom and stripped all of my clothes off.
As I stepped into the shower, I began to soak myself into the warm, clean, fresh water that was provided for my mom, me, and Selena. I took the bottle of shampoo and read the label as the water continues to hit my back and run down my legs into the drain. Herbal Essence, Moroccan My Shine. Sounds interesting.
When I opened the bottle and spill the shampoo on my big hands, the smell of the scent was flowery like how Selena described. But it also smelled like waterfalls and a hint of coconut as if I were in a island. I lathered and massaged my scalp with the product hoping that it would do great for my curls since men products had a disadvantage over curls.
I rinsed the suds off my hair leaving it just wet and messy like before. I quickly turned off the shower and hopped out of the tub, I was soaking wet well not anymore since I have my trusty green towel with me. After I dried myself, I wrapped the towel around my lower half of my body and opened the door into my room.
As I walked into my room, the scent of waterfalls and flowers filled my nose making me crave for more. Since today is my date with Selena well for me its a date, I got into my red polo with white and blue strips, my jean and my white converse.
I took my towel and started to dry my hair with it. I didn't bother to apply any extra cologne since I have my flowery scent on me, plus if I did add some cologne then it would interfere with the flowery scent making me smell like I don't know garbage. I looked at the mirror, wow this shampoo is really good my curls look. I started to move my head side to side as I watched my curls bounce up and down. I smiled at myself. I glanced at the clock, 12:36 PM. I decided to go wait for Selena down stair in the living room. When I got there, I went into Twitter thinking of whether I should tweet about today's day.
@HarryStyles: Today is going to fun, can't wait to make @SelenaGomez Happy!
When I pressed tweet, I turned my phone off. Its already 12:49, we got to go. As I was about to go check on Selena, I heard footsteps coming down the stairs. As I stood up, I glanced at Selena with my eyes wide open. She was Beautiful, cute, Beautiful, cute. Both. She smiled at me, I walked up to Selena as I placed my hands on her waist. I looked into her eyes.
She was wearing a purple polo that was tied into a knot so you could see her stomach a little with a jean vest with a blue flower on it, white pants with a thin knotted purple belt, and a necklace that looked like a charm bracelet. Her lips were tinted with the color strawberry, and her hair had the scent of cologne. She was gorgeous yet cute and casual
"You look Beautiful" I whispered.
After I took a shower, my body and hair smelled like cologne. I looked at the mirror right in front of me, I wanna look cute but casual at the same time if possible. As I walked up to my closet, I started to search for the outfit that was gonna rock my world.
I found a purple polo that had white and black strips on it, it was quite long for me so I thought of tieing it into aa knot. i look cute in it but the fact that my stomach is showing a little bit made me feel a little bit exposed. I added a blue jean vest with a little flower attach to it. When I wore it on top of my purple polo, I felt normal again a little bit exposed but that's OK.
I took my favourite white pants sine I look kinda too dark at the moment, I added a thin knotted purple belt to spice up my look. I looked up to the mirror again, I sighed at the fact that I had to do this but to add a charm necklace around my neck. I feel to cute and casual. I fixed my hair to the side when it was all dry and added some mascara, my pink blush, and my strawberry flavoured pink lipstick. I wore my white converse and looked again at the mirror.
"Ah I feel kinda feel casual but too cute. Darn" I said to myself. I look at myself as I tried to see which smile looks best with this look. I took my phone and keys and closed my door. Wait I forgot to close my lights. I opened my door slightly and turned the lights off by flicking it up. I closed my door and walked slowly down the stairs. As I got there, i found Harry standing beside the couch with eyes wide open. I blushed. I began to feel self conscious about how I looked when he slowly walked up to me. He placed his firm hands onto my waist as I looked deep into his eyes.
"You look Beautiful" he whispered. I blushed as I looked down to the ground. He took one hand off my waist ad used it to lift my chin up so I could look at him eye to eye.
"Come on, don't want to be late for our reservations at Nando's" he smiled and slid his hand to intertwine with his. he carefully lead me out the door and into his car. While was in the car waiting for Harry to slip in to the drivers seat, I didn't bother to turn on the radio. There was a song that was playing that was my complete favourite song, my favourite song in the whole wide world. It was 'Isn't she lovely' by Stevie Wonder. As Harry stepped into the car, he smiled at me as he watches me sing quietly. Harry turned the volume up and started to sing with me, shocking was that he was singing it properly. I stood there on my seat watching Harry sing with a smile on my face.
""Isn't She Lovely"
Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love
Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love
Isn't she lovely
Life and love are the same
Life is Aisha
The meaning of her name
Londie, it could have not been done
Without you who conceived the one
That's so very lovely made from love"
When the song ended, I haven't noticed that we were already here. At Nando's. Harry turned the ignition off and looked at me happily.
"That was amazing, never knew Harry Styles could sing like that" I said as I giggled.
"Well thank you Selena Gomez, I'm glad you like it since you are a singing expert." he smirked at me while get out of the car. I follow him outside.
"Well I'm not really a expert Haz, don't think of me like that. Singing expert sounds kinda mean to me." I said with a sad face as I closed my car door.
"Well then will see one day if you really are a singing expert" he chuckled causing me to nudge him in the stomach. He moaned in pain but quietly as we stepped into the building.
The sound of the music made Nando's sound like a fancy restaurant. Even though Nando's is a crazy busy place, yet they still have a chance to be a fancy restaurant thing. There was a lady at her mid-twenty's standing beside the reservations pole. She smiled at us, well mostly at Harry.
"Reservations?" she asked, I couldn't help but get her attention that I'm here since she thinks that Harry is alone.
"Yes please, reservations for Styles please." I said as I walked in front of Harry. Well I needed to cover his handsome cute face to get this lady to focus on her job.
"Oh yes right this way please." she gave me a angelic sorry look but I didn't bought it. I already don't like her and how she thinks its good to look at a man when they come in with a wife or girlfriend. Actually, I'm just a best friend to Harry but still. One day I will manage to be with Harry all day even if I already have the opportunity to do it. We followed the lady to a table of two beside a man that was eating alone. I looked at him, he looked like he was our age. I sat on the chair that Harry pulled out for me.
"Thank you Haz." I said as the lady gave our the menus and left giving Harry a wink. I looked at Harry with a stern face.
"What?" he asked, I sighed at him.
"I don't like that lady." I answered back as I kept my eyes on the menu.
"What is Selly jealous or something?" he asked with a smirk on his face.
"Look Harry were not even dating yet so how am I jealous. Look I just want don't want to get mad at you now since today is the day that I have to be all happy till midnight." I said as I stood up from my chair.
"Where are you going?" he said with a worried look on his face. I had enough already but I have to keep calm. Jealously is taking over me and I don't like it. I can't control it even though I'm not dating Harry.
"To the washroom if you will excuse me" I said as I continued to walk to the hallway that had the washrooms. I could feel Harry's eyes starring at me, well at my back. I took a deep breath in and out trying not to burst into tears. As I made it to the washroom, I locked my self in a stall. How could I handle such pressure when there is a lady falling for Harry. I love Harry with al my heart. I could never every fall for another man and I don't think that man would even treat me like Harry. Harry hold the key to my heart. Even if Harry is gone, I would go gone with him. I just love Harry so much. A tear had ran down my cheek. Good thing I'm wearing waterproof mascara.
As I was about to open my stall and wash my hands, there was a knock on my stall door. I began to panic, I look below to see a pair of white converse. Harry's converse of course, wait Harry's in the girls washroom. I was about to tell him that he wasn't aloud when a girl already beat me to it.
"Hey you can't be here!" the girl shouted. "Hey you I said your not aloud to be here, Girls only." she shouted again.
"Can you please wait, there's a girl here that I want to talk to alright!" Harry fought back. A set of heels started to make noises as it hit the floor, then the sound of the door closing hard. Harry made the girl left hot heels behind her.
"What do you want Haz" I asked letting my voice crack a bit.
"Selena please come out, it was a joke. I didn't mean to get you jealous. I know you are jealous and I'm sorry for that. I only have eyes for you." His words made my stomach turn into a blossom of flowers and butterflies. I took a deep breath and open the stall door racing into Harry's arms.
"I'm sorry too for making this date miserable" I whispered into his ear. He let go of his grip on me making me face him. His eyes show shock and understandable. Thats when I realize. I told him I knew that this was a date.
"How did you know?" his face went pale as I knew that he was still in shock but sad. As I was about to answer, a girl went inside the washroom and started to scream BOY BOY BOY!. I laughed.
"I'll tell you when we get back to our table. Don't want to make another girl scream." I smiled. His face became happy as he leaded me out the girls washroom back to our table. I sat down.
"Look Harry, when you left to go to the bakery. I found a sticky note attached to the 'Catching Fire' book. The sticky note was attached to Chapter 28 and the number 28 is tomorrow. I'm sorry for not telling you I just don't you want you to not think that this date is not the best. this date is the best and I love you for doing it." I said. A tear an down my eye as i wiped it with my ring finger.
"Selena, i'm so so sorry for lying to you about everything. its just that I wanted to make it a surprise fo you. you know I love you and nothing would change that. Your my best friend in the world and I'm very happy that you came into my life." Instead of one tear running down my eye, a bunch of tears gave up on me and fell. I moved my chair closer to him so I could give him a forever hug, when the lady came. I gave her a glare before I could go back to my regular positions.
"I'm sorry for the interruption but are you ready to order?" she asked. That's what she needed to ask, that's all?!?! I was in a middle of I break down and she had to disturb that.
"Yeah I would like some calamari and some coke please." Harry ordered with a smile. i knew that smile that Harry was giving fake since his eye was twitching.
"Ok what about you?' she said pointing her pen at me. She gave me a death glare but I ignored it.
"i would like some baby back ribs please with sprite please thank you and goodbye." i said in a happy tone with a smile. She scoffed at me and left as she wrote down my order.
"I saw that death glare she gave you" Harry said. I smiled at him.
"Yup I defiantly don't like her" we both laughed. We continued to make silly conversations about who was the fastest. I said a kangaroo cause we were only aloud to do animals.
"I say the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport 8 Litre W16 AWD." he said, I laughed because he memorized the name of the fastest car in the world.
"Haz were talking about animals here." I laughed again. He smiled at me.
"fine, lets see a hare." finally he answered.
"Wow thats even better than, Wait what a hare?" I asked with a confused face. I thought he would do better than that since he always comes up with better answers than me. He nodded.
"Because if a hare can beat a turtle than a hare can beat a kangaroo just like that" he snapped his fingers. I giggled at him. A man came up to us with a plate of food on it. Must be our order.
"Here is your order" the man looked like he was our age and handsome, but Harry was way handsome and cuter. As the man placed our food done, he looked at me and winked. I blushed but I knew Harry was jealous. I could already see him clenching his fist and anger in his eyes. The man walked away and I looked at Harry, he seems to calm down little by little and that's I felt when that lady was flirting with him.
"That's how I felt." I sang. he let out his anger and smiled at me. I knew that would help him feel all better. Why?
Because Harry is the only man, I Love
A man came up with plates of food in his hands, both hands. He placed our order on the table. My clenched my fist and chewed my bottom lip as I watch him wink at Selena. My Selena. She blushed as him. I began to have the feeling to leave this area and smash some glass but when Selena looked at me, I felt as if she was telling me to calm down because she loves me by using her eyes. She smiled.
"That's how I felt." she sang. My anger disappeared when I realized when that lady leaded us to our table was flirting with me made her jealous, jealous till the end. I smiled at her. Selena always knows how to make me feel better.
"I'm sorry about getting jealous, I don't know what came over me." I said as I scratched the back of my neck. She took her knife and fork and unwrapped it from the napkin.
"That's OK Haz. I know you didn't mean it as always. Anyways lets dig in" she started to cut her baby back ribs into pieces while I took a piece of fried chopped up squid and dip it into tarter sauce. The food was so goo that both of us didn't bother to make a conversation, just the sound of Mmm. I knew that having reservations at Nando's was a great idea. I just found out that Selena knows that this was a date but the question is.......
Does she know that were going to the Meet and Greet?
