Chapter 22 - Hyde Park
„Zayn are you coming?” Tessa yelled while Louis was sitting at the kitchen table. „He’ll be down at some point - I really don’t know anybody who takes as long to do his hair as Zayn,” Louis snickered. „I heard that idiot,” Zayn stated smiling before slapping Louis at the back of his heard. „Finally, let’s get going,” Tessa giggled and pulled the two boys after her. „You’re late guys,” Paul stated when the exited the house and quickly got in the car. „Of course we’re late - Zayn had to fix his beautiful beautiful quiff. Didn’t you honey?” Louis replied and patted Zayn’s back, who just responded by swatting his arm away. „So what are you going to do at Hyde Park?” Paul asked and pressed the accelerator. „Theresa needs some pictures for her blog - so we thought that would be the perfect place to spot outstanding stylish people while enjoying the good weather - and we might even get the chance to play some football as well,” Louis continued. Paul just nodded and kept his eyes on the road.
„Thank you so much. I promise I’ll tweet you when the picture gets up on my blog,” Tessa explained to one of the girls in Hyde Park wearing a complete outfit in superhero fabric - which is the reason Zayn insisted on Tessa to photograph her. „No thank you! I really can’t believe I actually met you!” The girl replied and sent Tessa a small wave before leaving with her friends. „Are we done soon - I really want to play some ball,” Louis mentioned dissatisfied with the constant postponement of the football match. „Yeah, I think I got enough pictures today,” Tessa said smiling at the thought of all the grateful girls she met today. Louis exploded in happiness and then he tried doing a cartwheel - which he wasn’t even close to succeeding at. Both Zayn and Tessa erupted in laughter. „Ouch I think I just broke my leg!” Louis screamed. „Well well well, isn’t Louis Tomlinson being as dramatic as always,” a female voice interrupted. A voice Tessa was very familiar with - but not because she had ever met her before, she had just listened to all of her sappy love songs while dealing with her breakup with Mike. At one point in her life Tessa had even wished to meet her - but after everything that had happened to Harry, Tessa now regretted ever wishing so. „Taylor, long time no see,” Zayn the stated before giving her an awkward hug. Louis rapidly got up and stiffly hugged her as well - Tessa couldn’t avoid but noticing the tension. Taylor had this superficial smile on her face and she was, as always, wearing a sailor stripped shirt with a dark blue skirt. „You I don’t think I have ever met - I’m Taylor Swift,” Taylor said and stretched out her hand to Tess. „I know who you are - I’m a fan of your work,” Tessa said trying to sound nonchalant and grabbed Taylor’s hand. „I’m Tessa Ozols,” she then quickly added. „I know,” Taylor coldly replied. „Oh,” Tessa just answered and avoided any eye contact since Taylor’s gaze clearly wasn’t warm and welcoming. „Yeah Tessa here is staying at our place, before she starts her job at Vogue,” Zayn proudly said and put his arm around Tessa just to show Taylor he would always have Tessa’s back - he had no idea what that unreliable bitch would ever do, so he preferred playing it safe. „Oh that’s convenient since your already Harry’s fuck buddy - how nice you live under the same roof,” Taylor said acting as if it didn’t matter to her. „Excuse me?” Tessa was chocked. Who the hell did she think she was? Well Taylor Swift, a world famous singer - but still… Louis stepped forward as to prevent an upcoming catfight. „You heard me, clearly he’s slumming it - but don’t worry as I child I always learned to give away my old toys to the less fortunate ones,” Taylor then said and sent Tessa a hateful wink - ouch that one hurt. Tessa clenched her fits and felt Zayn’s arm tighten around her shoulders. Tessa had a thousand smart comebacks ready - but she knew she couldn’t use any of them since they all started up with her explaining she was dating Harry, not just his fuckbuddy. She just plastered the fakest smile possible on her face before answering with the one statement she knew couldn’t hurt neither Harry’s nor her own career: „No comments”. Then she turned on her heels and left the bitch behind - quickly followed by her two friends.
„Well, she was just as delightful as always,” Louis chuckled once they were back in Paul’s car. „She’s always like this?” Tessa asked considering why Harry then could possibly have fallen in love with her. „No at first, she was actually a really great girl; fun, smart and of course sweet - but since everything with Harry she stopped acting all nice and now she’s just,” Zayn was lost of words. „A complete bitch,” Tessa muttered, which caused Louis to laugh hysterically before high fiving her. „Why are she so spiteful?” Tessa asked confused. „I guess she just has this need to be mean - to make people feel like their beneath her,” Zayn stated and shrugged his shoulders. „Well at least she’s out of our lives now - and out of Harry’s as well,” Louis added and patted Tessa’s shoulder. „And thank god for that! Hey Paul, could you stopped at Starbucks on the way home? I think Harry would appreciate an ice blended chocolate cream,” Tessa smiled. „Niall would definitely too,” Louis grinned.
Sorry about the lack of Tarry time - but trust me next chapter will be all about the two of them!
I'll try to write it as soon as possible, and THANKS THANKS THANKS for reading! :-)
Have a nice day x
