All These Little Things (Part 1 of 3)

Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, and Liam Payne. The five super-hot, sexy boys part of the boyband known as One Direction. The five are traveling the world on their tour, Take Me Home. Once they reach Los Angeles, however, Harry spots a girl named Lily Matthews in a Jack Wills magazine as a new model, and instantly develops a crush on her. By mistake, a couple of the boys reveal on a twitcam that Harry likes Lily. A few days later, something goes terribly wrong with Harry at one of the concerts, and Lily and her best friend, Megan McCaffrey, set out to find the boys and figure out what's going on with Harry. Soon after, someone robs the Jack Wills store, causing Lily and Megan to lose their jobs. With a little help of the boys, the girls uncover the thief, discover romance, and have to face a very difficult truth at the end.


14. All These Little Ideas

Lily's POV


The boys and I were seated around the table eating the Nandos that Niall had ordered. I had never had Nandos before, but it was pretty good. Harry told me it was best not to tell Niall that, only because he might throw a chair at me.


"So again, I'm really sorry about your car, Lily," Harry said.


"It's fine, really," I said.


"Well, like I said, I'll buy you a new one," he smiled.


I blushed. "Thanks. So what were you going to-" I was cut off by Megan walking in.


"Hey guys!" She exclaimed.


"Hey, Meg," I smiled.


"Would you like some food?" Louis asked.


"No thanks, I just ate," she replied, sitting down between Louis and myself.


"Hey, Megan," Liam smiled.


Megan blushed. "Hey."


"So, I think I know how to catch the thief, girls," Harry said.


"Well spill then! My hair needs a fresh coat of hairspray," Zayn said, running his fingers through his hair. The five of us stopped eating and looked at him with blank expressions.


"Is that all you care about?" Niall asked him.


"No... I care about music and... Stuff..." 


"Likely story," Liam replied.


"ANYWAY, I think I have a plan. It’s quite brilliant," Harry said, trying to tell us his plan.


"No, brilLIAM," Liam stated.


"Fine, brilLIAM."


"That's more like it!" Liam grinned.


"So what do we have to do, Harry?" Megan asked.


"Lily and I sit in Liam’s car-"


Liam cut him off, "Hey!"


"-and the rest of you wait outside-"


This time it was Zayn, "Hey!"


"-and we wait," Harry finished.


We all stared at him for a moment.


"What?" I asked.


"That was the vaguest plan I’ve ever heard," Niall stated.


"Care to elaborate?" Liam asked.


"Each one of you will cover a door in a bush at a Jack Wills store and pretend it’s open. Then we-"


Zayn cut him off again, "YOU WANT US TO HIDE IN BUSHES?!"


"Well, yea but-"




"It'll be-"


"What does my car have to do with it?" Liam butt in.


"Because Lily and I will be lookouts and waiting to set the trap."


"Trap?" Niall asked.


"This makes no sense," Louis said.


"Yeah, I’m a bit confused on what to do here," Zayn added.


Harry took a deep breath. "Lily and I will "hide" in Liam’s car and wait to set the trap while you, Niall, Liam, Louis, and Megan all hide in the bushes waiting to trap the thief inside, who is going to be stealing stuff inside."


"But how are we going to make it look like it’s open?" Liam asked.


I watched as Megan crossed her arms in front of her body. "I think I know someone who can help," she grinned.




The seven of us stood in Miss Alex's living room, waiting for her to respond with the idea. I was praying that Megan's idea would work, we really needed to get our jobs back.


Miss Alex put a coffee mug down on the table she had been drinking out of. "So you’re basically asking me to put fake money in a register at Jack Wills and wait for someone to steal it?" She asked.


"I know it sounds crazy, but yes!" I said.


"PLEASE, Miss Alex. This could help us get Jack Wills back in business," Megan begged.


"What’s the point? It’s fake money we’re putting in," she replied.


"Yeah, but he or she isn’t going to be able to get away. We have a plan."


"It was my plan!" Harry exclaimed.


"It was Harry's plan..."


"Look, Miss Alex, I love this store. I’d do anything to keep it running. Please, I beg you," Harry said, tears beginning to appear in his eyes.


Miss Alex looked at Harry and then sighed. "Fine, I'll help you." Harry looked up at her. "When do we do it?" She asked.


"Tomorrow. I think Harry and Lily were going to make sure everything would work," Liam said.


"We were?" I asked, looking at Harry.


"We were," Harry confirmed.


"You know who else might be able to help?" Miss Alex asked.




We walked up to Tommy's front door and rang the doorbell. He opened it and had an ice cream container and a spoon in his hand. Louis jumped on top of him, much to everyone's surprise.




Tommy dropped the ice cream and shielded his face. "TAKE WHAT YOU WANT JUST NOT THE CHERRY PIE!" He screamed back.


The rest of us ran inside, trying to pry Louis off of Tommy.


"Louis, stop!" I exclaimed.


"Hey, Tommy," Megan said.


"What are you girls doing here? And why is One Direction in my living room..?" He asked.


Louis remained on top of Tommy screaming, "GIVE ME WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY MINE!"


"Lou, quit it," Harry said.


"I’m SO sorry, Tommy, and the boys came with us. We know them personally," Megan explained.


"It’s fine, but why did you come here? And why does he want my carrots?" Tommy asked, pointing to Louis with his spoon.


Liam stared at him in horror. "Sp-sp-sp-sp-"


"What's wrong with him?" Tommy asked.


"SPOON!" Liam ran outside in fear of the metal bowl on a stick. 


"Don’t you know Liam’s biggest fear is spoons?" Zayn asked.


"Oh, of course, cause LOADS of people are afraid of spoons," Tommy replied sarcastically.


"Listen, Tommy, we really need your help. We really want to catch the thief that’s been robbing the Jack Wills stores," I said.


"How did you find me?" He asked.


"That would be me," Alex said. "Look, these kids-"


Louis cut her off, "I AM NOT A CHILD!" He screamed.


"Alright, these people really love Jack Wills as much as I do, and I really want it back. Will you help us?"


"You’re seriously trusting a bunch of teenagers with this?" He asked.


"WHAT DID I JUST SAY?!" Louis screamed.


"Lou, calm down," Harry said, placing a hand on his shoulder.


"Tommy, please. Look, I love Jack Wills, and so does Harry. I love working here and I don’t want to lose my job. As much of a pain some of you can be, I really learned that I liked working here. Can you please help us?" I asked, practically begging him to help us.


"Alright, before I say yes to anything, do you even have a plan?" He asked us.


"Well to start, you should really put that spoon away, Liam looks as if he’s about to pass out," Niall said, looking over at Liam.


"Um... Ok?" Tommy walked over to his sink and placed the spoon in it.


Liam came back in. "Thanks, I was almost about to pass out," he said.


"Second, we were thinking you could film," Harry said.


"Like a movie or something?" Tommy asked.


"No, not exactly. We want you to film the thief robbing Jack Wills."


"Why don't you just catch him?" Tommy asked.


Harry's face turned to annoyance. "I was getting to that," he muttered.


"We want the film so we have proof that they did rob it. For police evidence, you know?" I said.


"What's in it for me?" He asked.


"Um... you get to work at Jack Wills!" Niall said, clearly not realizing he already had a job there.






"HE ALREADY WORKS THERE!" Megan screamed.


"I think you need Nandos to calm down."


"We just ate!" Zayn exclaimed.


"I'm so confused," Tommy said.


"Just please have your camera equipment with you tomorrow. Harry and I will pick you up tomorrow at nine in the morning," I said.


"Alright, but I better get something out of this!"


"Thank you!"


The eight of us climbed into Harry's car, with me and Harry seated at the front while the others squished in the back.


"I’ll drop you guys off at home and then Lily and I need to go down to Jack Wills and investigate. We need to find places to put everything," Harry said.


"Why don’t you just do it in the morning??" Zayn suggested.


"Yeah, what if the thief’s around?" Niall said.


"That's a good idea, we'll just look when Tommy's setting up his camera equipment," Harry told me.


"Alright," I smiled.


Suddenly we all heard a crunching sound coming from the back of the car.


"Lou, what are you eating?" Megan asked.




"Did you take more of Tommy’s carrots?" I asked.




"Louis William Tomlinson, are you serious?!" Megan yelled.


"Hey, the little orange guys aren’t gonna eat themselves!" He exclaimed.


"I'm really worried about you," I said.




"Because if you eat too many carrots you can turn orange."


"That happened once," Liam said. "We were about to go onstage in London and he turned orange at the last minute. It was pretty funny."


"It was not! People thought I had a rare tan!"


I laughed, "Seriously, Lou, don’t turn orange again."


"Yeah, and if you do, I’ll laugh in your face," Zayn said.


"I take no offence to that," Louis replied.


"Believe me, you will later on."


I looked at the boys, laughing at their silliness. I could hardly wait for tomorrow, we were going to catch the thief once and for all.
