I drove around looking for Harry. Megan had called minutes before saying that Liam and the boys went out looking for him, and I knew in my heart I couldn't let him be out there alone. I saw a dark figure walking toward a stop sign, and quickly drove up to it. I instantly knew it was Harry because of the curls. No guy had curls like his, they were kind of his trademark.
"Harry?" I asked, slowing my car next to him.
He looked over at me, stunned that I was five feet from him. "Lily?! What are you doing here?"
"I'm here to get you."
"Megan told me and said the guys went out looking for you because you 'disappeared'."
"I knew something fishy was going on with them..."
"Well, they’re worried about you."
"Na. Just Zayn, maybe.. he was worried that I was going somewhere in black clothes without him," he laughed.
"Oh, sorry." I felt embarrassed for wanting to save him for getting himself into nothing.
He looked at me. "So why did you come and get me? I thought you.. hated me or something."
"I never hated you, I just was annoying about what the truth was, and what it wasn't. Besides, if you’re gonna find the thief, so will I. It’s my job at risk."
"That’s true. But I’m driving around, just saying."
I laughed, knowing that I wasn't going to let him drive my car. "Get in," I said.
He got in the passenger seat but didn't shut the door. "No I’m serious, I’m going to drive."
"It’s my new car. I’m not handing it over to someone I don’t know."
"So now suddenly you have no idea who I am?" I laughed. "I’m Harry Edward Styles, one-fifth of the British-Irish boyband that didn’t win the X Factor but won the world."
I was confused by the description of himself. "What?"
"Sorry, it was trending on twitter," he grinned.
"Oh, I don't have a twitter."
Was he stalking me?! "Uhm, excuse me?"
He changed the subject before I could say anything else. "PLEASE LET ME DRIVE, LILY!" He screamed in an annoying voice.
I rolled my eyes. "God, you're so annoying."
He lowered his voice. "Please?"
I sighed, realizing he wasn't going to drop this. "Fine," I said.
"Yay!" He jumped out of the car, went over to the driver's side, picked my up bridal style, and carried me over to the passenger side, carefully placing me inside. I blushed slightly as he shut the door and got in the driver's side, starting the engine. I had to admit, he was pretty adorable.
"So why did you want to drive so bad? I’m just bringing you home," I said as Harry drove the car away.
"We're not going to my house," he replied.
I looked at him. "What?"
"I’m going to Jack Wills and finding out who robbed the stores and studios."
"Harry, you can't do that."
"Yes, I can."
"Why, you don't need to!"
"Yes I do!"
"I'm not letting Jack Wills lose their business and I'm definitely not letting you lose your job."
I was silent the rest of the ride. Harry pulled up to a Jack Wills store that hadn't been robbed yet. It was deserted.
"This may sound weird, but I haven’t seen anything suspicious or weird," I said.
He laughed, "That’s alright. I haven’t either. We need a plan."
"Alright, what've you got?" I asked him.
"Let's see... nothing."
I laughed, knowing that was coming. "That's alright."
We sat in silence for a moment before Harry spoke again.
"So uh.. do you want me to drive you home? I could call you or something if I see anything suspicious."
"Yeah.. but shouldn’t I be driving you home? It’s my car," I asked, laughing.
"Right..." He said, laughing with me.
We heard the alarm sound for the store. It made me jump, but Harry grabbed me from behind and held me. I was too scared to move.
"Lil, look!" Harry's finger pointed to a black figure, who I assumed was the thief, who was running toward us. "Lily, get out of the car." His arms let go of me.
"NOW!" Harry pushed me out of the car and got out on his side. He pulled me onto his back and ran behind a wall, panting.
I had realized something was missing. "The keys!" I screamed.
He put a hand over my mouth to keep me quiet. "That doesn't matter right now! We should be safe here."
I watched as the masked figure shut the passenger door and quickly got into the driver's side and drove away.
I was released from Harry's grip. "My car!" I screamed, running after it.
"Lil, if it makes you feel any better I’ll buy you a new one!"
I turned around and looked at Harry. "But it’s brand new! My parents are gonna kill me..."
He grabbed my hand and looked me in the eyes. "No they're not," he said softly.
I sighed, looking at the boy who owed me a new car. Even though he could be so stupid, I was really beginning to fall for him. "How are we going to get out of here?"
"Relax, I'll call Liam." He let go of my hand, took out his phone, and dialed Liam.
I drove my van around looking for Harry, still dressed in my ridiculous Mexican costume Niall had put me in. I kept thinking about Megan, she was absolutely gorgeous. I wanted to ask her out, but I figured it was too soon.
I heard Niall sigh in the back of the car. "Well.. it’s been an hour and we still haven’t found Harry," he said.
"He’s got to be around here somewhere.. This town isn’t that big," Louis chimed in.
"ARE YOU KIDDING?! IT'S HUGE!" Zayn screamed.
"It's just L.A."
The two began arguing when I heard my phone ringing. I stopped the car and read the screen.
"Guys, shut up! Harry’s calling!"
"What does he want?" Niall asked.
"I don't know! Let me pick up the phone."
"OK BUT PLEASE HURRY!" Louis shouted.
I laughed, rolling my eyes, and hit accept. "Harry!"
"Liam! I need you to come get me, man!"
He sounded scared. "What? Where are you?"
"I’ll explain everything later. We’re at the Jack Wills store in San Francisco- hurry!"
Why was Harry all the way out there? "'We're'? Who are you with?"
"You'll see, just please hurry!"
"Alright I'll be there as soon as I can!" I quickly hung up and put the car in reverse. So many questions began circling my head. Had Harry caught the thief? Who was he with? And most importantly, how'd he get to San Francisco in an hour?"
I hung up the phone and looked at Lily. "Liam should be here soon," I said.
Lily smiled. "Great."
I noticed she began shivering a bit. It was nine at night, so it was getting pretty chilly out, especially for September. I quickly took off the black jacket I had on and wrapped it around her.
She looked at me for a moment. "Thanks," said said.
I smiled. I still really liked her, and I felt like now was the time to find out if she really liked me too. "So Lily.. I’ve been meaning to ask you something for a while now..."
She turned to face me, leaning against the brick wall we were by. "Yeah?"
"I was just wondering if.. Maybe you wanted to go out?"
She smiled, grabbing my hand. "I'd love to go out with you, Harry."
I smiled back. "Cool. So can I ask you something?"
"You know the whole nonsense with the video diary and your 'boyfriend'?"
"Oh yeah.. I made the video diary so you guys wouldn’t come looking for me.. which didn’t really work.. and then I did lie.. I’ve never really had a boyfriend before.. until now."
I smiled at her, and leaned in to kiss her. She did the same. Our lips moved in sync so nicely. My tongue glided into her mouth as I placed my hand on her face, brushing her hair out of the way. It suddenly began getting really bright out. I was confused by this; it was pitch black out, or it was supposed to be. I pulled away and opened my eyes to find headlights coming towards us. I quickly looked at Lily and smiled. Liam's car pulled up next to us.
"Hey, you guys coming?" He smiled. I found it extremely weird that he was dressed like a Mexican man, but I ignored it.
I grabbed Lily's hand, and led her to the backseat of the van. Zayn was seated in the front, and Louis and Niall were in the very back, leaving Lily and I to ride in the middle. I noticed they were all in strange costumes, and I couldn't help but giggle a bit. Liam began driving back to Los Angeles, my hand still in Lily's.
"So what happened, exactly?" He asked.
"Well.. I was walking down the streets in Los Angeles to find the thief and Lily pulled up in her car because Megan sent her to pick me up. We drove here and found the thief robbing it, and then they stole Lily’s car, I asked her out, we kissed and then you came."
"The thief stole Lily's car?"
"You kissed Lily?!"
"YOU HAVE A GIRLFRIEND?!" Zayn yelled insultingly.
"Yes, yes, and yes," I answered them.
"HOW?!" Zayn was really getting on my nerves.
"Now Zayn, don't be mean to the lovely couple," Liam said, grinning.
"What's your ship name?" Louis asked us.
"Uh... I don't know, Larry?" Lily asked.
Louis screamed at Lily, "NO! YOU MONSTER!" He unbuckled his seat belt and hugged me from behind, causing me to release my grip of Lily's hand.
"Jeez I'm sorry! We could do Hily?"
"That works," I said, smiling at my beautiful girlfriend.
We drove for a while until Liam arrived at Lily's house.
"Here you go, Lily."
"Thanks, Liam. Bye boys! Bye Harry."
Before she could get out I quickly kissed her cheek. She blushed and got out of the car. She was the cutest when she blushed, and my dream had finally come true.
Lily Matthews is mine.
