- Sienna -
"Argh" I groan out of disgust and roll my eyes. "Turn this shit off."
The cab driver gives me a weird look through the rearview mirror.
"Sorry" I mutter. "I just hate this band. A lot."
He chuckles and shakes his head before changing the radio channel.
I look out the window of the vehicle as horns go off everywhere.
"Seriously, This traffic is horrid." I sigh heavily.
"Sorry ma'am, everyone's rushing off to work. This is New York City for you."
I shake my head and look at my watch. I knew I should've taken the subway.
Great. I'm gonnd be late for work. Again.
"We're not getting anywhere." I groan impatiently before grabbing a fifty dollar note from my wallet and handing it over to the driver. I jump out of the cab as the driver calls after me.
"Hey! Hey miss! You can't do that!"
"Keep the change!" I shout back to him and run across the road, cars stuck behind one another, beeping their horns impatiently.
I'm wearing a tight black pencil skirt with a white singlet and white blazer, black heels on my feet. I try running as fast as I can but my pencil skirt and heels hold me back. I'm holding a bag of files in one hand and my handbag in the other, dodging my way through people.
When I finally reach the office building, I look at the huge clock on the wall to see I am fifteen minutes late.
At least it's not an hour this time.
I run my hands down my skirt to straighten it and fix my hair before making my way to my desk. I look over at my bosses office to see if he's noticed me.
"Sienna!" I hear him call and I wince.
I put my things down before making my way to his office.
"I'm sorry I'm late again Carter, I was stuck in traffic and-"
He cuts me off. "It's fine love, just go fetch me a coffee from across the road." He flashes me a toothy grin, flashing his pearly whites.
"Sure" I smile at him before exiting his office.
"Oh and Sienna?"
"Yeah?" I turn around.
"Still waiting for that offer on drinks." He winks at me and I smile before leaving his office."
As I grab my purse from my desk, Hayley walks up to me.
"Oh my god!" She squeals. "He's so into you!"
I try my best not to roll my eyes. Ever since Carter started working here, Hayley has been crushing on him big time. It's true he's been extra friendly to me, but if I have to deal with Hayley's constant obsession with him one more time, I think I might leave the country.
I hold back my irritation and plaster a fake smile. "Don't be silly. I'm sure he's that nice to everyone."
She giggles. "I wish, but unfortunately, everyone know's he's crushing on you."
"I don't think so" I say before grabbing my purse and making my way to the elevator.
The truth is, I know Carter's been extra friendly to me. He's even asked me for a drink few times, but I'm not looking for a relationship. Sure, Carter is nice and charming and funny and very attractive, but ever since...him, I haven't really dove into a real relationship. I mean, I'm only 21 right? I have plenty of time.
I open the door to Starbucks and join the huge line to order a coffee. As I'm waiting patiently, while on my phone, I feel someone nudge me from behind. I turn around to see someone in a hoodie and sunglasses, a few inches taller than me.
"Sorry to bother you." He says in a thick english accent. "But would you happen to have a dollar? Turns out I didn't grab enough money."
I raise my eyebrows at him. "Who do you think you are, asking a random girl for money?"
He lets out a nervous laugh "I'm sorry for asking babe, it's fine, I'm sure I'll find some change in here." He goes through his pockets. "Sorry to bother you."
I laugh. "I'm totally kidding, it's fine, I'm sure I have one dollar to spare." I hand him the note.
The stranger let's out a sigh of relief. "Oh, you are quite the funny one aren't you? I believe I haven't formally introduced myself. I'm Harry." He holds out his muscular arm revealing a familiar tattoo.
"Nice to meet you." I shake his hand. "I'm Sienna."
He looks familiar, but I can't pin point where I've seen him before.
"No way." I hear him mutter just as it hits me.
"Oh my god." I say at the exact same time.
"Harry Styles" I whisper, still full of shock.
"I should've realised from that distinctive laugh of yours." He says softly. "How have you been? It's been too long."
"Not long enough." I mumble under my breath. "So, you still with that girl?"
Harry coughs awkwardly. "Um yeah... I am. Hey we should go out for lunch sometime and catch up."
"Actually, I have a boyfriend." I spit out.
Harry looks surprised. "Oh... really? What's his name?"
"Um" I try to think of a boy name. "Carter!" I mentally slap myself as soon as the words leave my mouth.
He raises his eyebrows. "Carter hey? Well I would love to meet him. It's settled then! We're having a double date tomorrow at 1. I can't take no for an answer. It's a Saturday anyways."
"Come on, It'll be good to catch up. I'll text you the details." He says just as I'm about to reach the counter, giving me no chance to deny.
"Laters babe. See you tomorrow at 1." He smirks at me as I grab the coffee and storm out of Starbucks.
"Oh By the way Sienna!" He calls out to me and I turn around. "You look great!"
I roll my eyes and suddenly a brilliant plan comes into mind. I smirk at him and he looks at me confused.
"OH MY GOD!" I shout. "IT'S HARRY STYLES WITH A RED HOODIE AND SUNGLASSES!"
Just as I shout that, around thirty girls run up to him, asking for photos and autographs. I look back to see Harry in the middle of the frenzy, helpless and nearly being killed.
I nearly felt sorry for him. But instead I walked back to the office building.
Great. Great. Just fucking great.
What am I going to do now? I can't just ask Carter to pretend to be my boyfriend. I think to myself as I get in the elevator. I guess I could just ask him out right? I guess I could tell him that my ex boyfriend who happens to be in the famous boy band One Direction bumped into my at Starbucks and to make him jealous, I too him you were my boyfriend and he forced me into having a lunch date with him and his model girlfriend.
I knock on Carter's door and he looks up. When he sees me, he smiles, revealing his shiny blue eyes. He is pretty dreamy I guess, with the brown hair, perfect smile and blue eyes.
"Thank you love" He says as I hand him his coffee before he returns his attention back to the computer screen.
"Um, anything else I can help you with?" He says and I realise I've been standing there awkwardly.
"Well," I let out a cough and a nervous laugh. "I've been thinking about your offer for drinks and well," I pause.
He looks up at me, hopeful.
"I was wondering if you wanted to go out to lunch with me tomorrow with my friend and his girlfriend. You know, like a double date."
Carter's face lights up. "Really?"
"I would love to Sienna! What time would you like me to pick you up?"
"12:30?" I suggest and he nods.
"Brilliant. Can't wait."
I let out a breath of relief. "Great then! I'll see you then. Well other than here, because we work here together... not that you won't see me, I mean you see a lot of people and I'm rambling aren't I?"
Carter lets out a beautiful laugh and nods. "Just a little bit. But it's cute." He adds.
I blush. "Sorry, I do that when I'm nervous."
"That's fine love. Now excuse me, I must get back to work. Gotta keep the boss happy." He winks.
I bite my lip and nod. "Sure, of course, sorry to keep you." I say before leaving his office.
As I sit at my desk, I can't help thinking that tomorrow will be a complete disaster. I can feel it already and I'm dreading it.
Sorry for the tremendously late update. I haven't had the heart to write lately but here's the first official chapter of this movella. More to come! Xx
