8. Chapter 8

"So where is he taking you?" Danielle asks as she enters my flat.

"A simple dinner. Nothing fancy. I'll probably just wear jeans," I say shrugging.

I've never really been one to get all dressed up for dates.

Honestly, dates scare me, a lot. I get anxious when I do things like that. Especially if there are people around.

I think I have anxiety partially because I never had friends aside from Niall because of my intelligence.

Skipping years in school can be tough on a kid.

I used to get panic attacks before going out in public. I don't anymore but I still get nervous.

"Jeans are nice but don't you want to look sexy?" Dani asks wiggling an eyebrow at me.

"I don't really know how to look sexy," I respond sheepishly.

"That's alright Lí, I got you covered," Dani says with a wink as she pulls me towards the door.

"Where are we going?" I ask confused.

"My flat," she says as if it's the most obvious thing in the world, "but first we have to stop off at Victoria's Secret. I'm guessing your panties aren't all that sexy."

My panties are Doctor Who, why would I want sexy undergarments when I have Doctor Who?

•••

"Get the red ones!" Danielle says pulling me over to a new bra and panties set.

"If I'm getting these sexy undergarments I'm getting them in TARDIS blue," I say crossing my arms over my chest.

"Fine, let's go pay and then head over to my place. I'll loan you something sexy to wear," Dani says as we head over to the check out counter.

Lingerie is a lot more expensive than I thought it would be. I'm not going to sleep with Harry anytime soon so I don't know why I needed it.

Maybe it will boast my self confidence?

I could really use more of that.

•••

"How about this?" Danielle says pulling out a little black dress.

"No that's a bit too small for my liking," I say shoving the dress away from me.

"Fine. I halter top and skinny jeans?" She asks. That's a bit more what I would like to wear but it's still a bit too showy.

I don't like attracting attention to myself. It's one of the things that comes with my anxiety, I hate being noticed.

"Skinny jeans and a Doctor Who shirt?" I ask hopefully.

"That's what your wearing now dumb ass," Dani says while playfully punching me in the arm.

"Exactly! I don't have a lot of time before the date anyway so I should just wear this. It's not a fancy date," I persuade her and she sighs in defeat.

"Fine. But you will wear something like this eventually!" Danielle says waving the dress around.

"We'll see, I should be getting back to my flat. Harry's picking me up in a half hour," I say as I turn towards the door.

"Alright. Have fun, don't forget to wear your new panties and use protection!" Dani calls as I leave.

That girl is something.

•••

"Hi Harry," I say smiling as I open the door for Harry.

"Hello love," he says kissing my cheek and handing me a single rose.

"Awwww! Thank you Harry! I'll be right back, I need to put this in some water, please make yourself at home," I say gesturing to my couch before proceeding to the kitchen to find a small vase.

Now that Harry is in my flat I'm starting to realise just how great he is, and despite how amazing he is I have no romantic feelings for him whatsoever.

"I have reservations for 7:00, is that good with you?" Harry asks walking over to me.

"I thought we were just doing something simple?" I ask starting to get nervous. I want this to be more of a friendly date.

"I have reservations at McDonald's," Harry says smiling at me with those beautiful dimples of his.

"I didn't know McDonald's made reservations," I say confused.

"I got the whole place for us, so that we don't get mobbed by fans. We don't want them jumping to conclusions," Harry says and I relax. I don't think he has anymore romantic feelings for than I do for him.

"That was very sweet of you Harry. May I ask what movie we'll be seeing?" I ask as I get my coat from it's hanger.

"The movie I was hoping to see isn't out yet so I was wondering if we could post pone that bit until the movie comes out? So we would just go out to eat tonight?" Harry asks hopefully.

"Yeah sure. But now I'm curious about what movie it is," I say as we walk down into the lobby of our building.

"Divergent, I read the book a little bit ago and I can't wait to see the movie!" Harry gushes and I'm a bit taken aback.

I didn't expect him to be the reading type, I really didn't expect him to be into the same types of books I was.

"I love that book! I'm reading Insurgent right now but I'm only halfway through it because I was listening to it on a car ride and them the ride ended so since it was an audiobook I haven't really gotten around to finishing it," I ramble on about the series with Harry and it's quite nice.

Niall was never into books like I am.

•••

"Hey! Those are my chips!" I say as Harry tries to sneak a few of my chips.

"You weren't eating them! I assumed it was okay," he defends himself.

"I was saving them to bring home!" I say moving my chips away from him.

"They'll be cold by then," he says wrinkling his nose.

"Do people not eat cold chips? I've never really been around people, I thought Niall was just lying when he says I was the only one who liked them..." I drift off starting to understand and Harry just laughs.

"Did you also think the amount of ketchup you use is normal?" He asks smirking and my ketchup.

"I know I use excessive amounts of ketchup but I don't care, I love it," I sing the last bit and he continues to laugh.

"You're a rubbish singer you know that?" He says stealing another one of my chips.

"Yes I'm quite aware. And quit stealing my chips!" I say smacking his hand playfully.

"Whatcha gonna do about it?" He challenges dipping the chip into my ketchup.

"You did not just do that. You can steal my chip but you cannot steal my ketchup," I say in complete seriousness.

He looks a little surprised at my statement. Ketchup is the world to me. He shouldn't mess with it.

"Oh but I did," he says with that stupid smirk on his face.

That's when I wipe the smirk right off his face by flinging ketchup at it.

•••

"I can't believe we were just kicked out of a McDonald's that you rented out!" I say wiping caramel from my hair.

We may have gotten a bit out of hand while throwing everything McDonald's has to offer at each other.

"We should probably go back to my flat and get cleaned up, I still have some things I want to discuss with you," Harry says while unlocking his car.

•••

"What is it you wanted to talk about?" I say after both of us have finished showering and changing into fresh clothes, separately I might add.

"I hope you don't get offended by this but I'm being forced to at least talk to you about it," Harry begins. Now I'm afraid, "management thinks you and Niall are a bit too close. The haven't even been around so they have no right to judge but they do anyway. Now that Niall and Rose are dating they don't want fans to think that Niall and you have a thing even thought we all know you don't. Management also has decided that I need a girlfriend. My proposition is one coming directly from management. Will you fake date me? I know it's a lot to ask but no one will know it's fake. Not even Niall. There will be no romantic feelings involved I think of you like a sister. So what do you say?"

He looks so hopeful. I don't know what management will do if I say no. Probably make it so I can't spend as much time with Niall.

Harry will probably get some girl he's never met and could possibly hate to fake date him.

"Yes," I say surprising both myself and Harry.

A/N: How is it? Please vote and comment! Any Hadan shippers? I'm going to make this an independent series.
