6. Zayn's P.O.V.

Chapter 6

Zayn's POV

Harry is back from having lunch with Esmerelda. He joins us in the living room and grabs an Xbox One controller out of the glass cabinet.

"Hey, mate," I greet him when he takes a seat next to me. "I'm sorry for snapping at you like I did earlier today."

"Hey, it's no big deal, Zayn," Harry chuckles. Then he talks to the rest of the room. "I have something to tell all of you later. I'll only tell you guys as long as you don't make a big deal out of it. Also, it can't cause ANY drama between our friendships with each other."

"Uh oh," Liam says, creasing his eyebrows with worry. "What is it this time?"

"Tell us!" Niall begs Harry.

Harry then looks at me and says, "Zayn, you in particular have to promise that you won't get angry no matter what I'm about to  tell you and the others."

Now it's my turn to start worrying about what he is going to tell us.

For a moment I look at Harry with a confused and worried expression on my face. When I don't answer him right away he nudges me and gives me a stern look.

"You have to promise, Zayn," he says sternly.

"It depends on the situation," I say. "But I'll try my best not to get angry or upset with whatever you are about to tell us."

"Fair enough." Harry shrugs his shoulders and then he shuts the TV off and places his controller on the oak table in front of us. Then he rests his arms above his head and leans back against the sofa so he can look at all of us. He looks at us with a nervous expression on his face.

"What's wrong, mate?" Louis asks Harry.

"Esmerelda and I are kinda dating," Harry says then he looks at me with a worried expression on his face.

I'm absolutely speechless. I have no idea what to say to Harry and I'm not sure I want to say anything to him.

"Wait...what?" Niall asks. The look on his face is of pure confusion. "I thought you said you two weren't going out?"

"I know but Esmerelda and I came to an agreement during our lunch date and we're dating now," Harry says. "It's hard to explain but I really hope you guys won't get mad at me."

"So does that mean the show is off?" Liam asks.

"No," Harry replies. "The show is still on as long as you guys promise that it doesn't cause any drama or fights between all of us. Okay?"

"Wait. So we are just going to continue the show until it's time for Esmerelda to choose who she wants to marry while she is dating you at the same time?" I ask Harry in the calmest voice that I can manage.

"Well, from what I imagine we're going to date until it is too complicated to date each other," Harry explains.

"Are you sure about this, Harry?" Louis worries. "I mean, you're starting something that you won't be able to follow through with once she chooses which one of us to marry."

Harry sighs and nods his head reassuringly. He says, "I'm sure you guys. It'll work out. Just trust me like you guys always have."

"Okay," All of us say in unison then we go back to playing the Xbox One.


Later that night after everyone has had dinner and have had the chance to introduce themselves to everyone Esmerelda, Harry, Louis, and I go for a midnight swim in the swimming pool.

Esmerelda wears a red halter top bikini and I can tell that Harry is absolutely mesmerized by all the skin she is showing off in her bikini. Harry and Esmerelda hang out at the shallow end of the pool while Louis and I hang out at the deep end of the pool.

"Why are we even here if Esmerelda has already chosen who she wants to be with?" I ask Louis when I hear Esmerelda laugh at something Harry said.

Louis shrugs his shoulders and says, "I'm not sure she's already chosen who she wants to spend her entire life with. I think she is just seeing who will treat her right and whether or not she should make the decision to marry one of us."

"It's not fair that she chose to date Harry before the show even airs tomorrow night. I think she just want all of us to fight over her and cause our friendship to go down the drain."

Louis considers this for a second before he shakes his head and says, "Zayn, you have to trust Harry on all of this.  I'm sure he'll break things off as soon as things start getting way too serious. Besides, you heard him earlier right?"

"Yeah. But still though. You never know what might happen if we leave them alone long enough."

I look over at Esmerelda and Harry once more before and see that Esmerelda has her arms wrapped around Harry's neck. She has a wide smile on her face as Harry tells her another joke. I watch with envy as Harry runs his hand down her back and then he places his other hand in her hair. He draws her closer to his body and I watch as he gives her a passionate kiss. 

"That's just wrong," i mutter under my breath.

"No, it's not," Louis laughs. "You're just jealous."

"Shut up, mate!" I exclaim angrily. And with that I stomp off to the mansion and I get ready for bed.
