After 18 Years

Darcy Tanner ran away from home on her 18th birthday, in search of her father. A little over 18 years before, her mother- Ariel- found out that she was pregnant with Harry Styles' child. She fled to America, scared to end the career that he enjoyed so much. Now, when Darcy forces Harry and Ariel to reunite will they fall back into love? Will revisiting their youth be painful or the thing that makes them happiest? Will everything be the same again, even after 18 years apart?


21. Plans

After everybody got showered and dressed Eleanor, Harry, and I made lunch. We made pizzas. A lot, of pizzas. Everyone ate, then we put the kids, including Darcy in the family room downstairs with couple movies and some games. The adults sat upstairs. We chatted, with the TV playing in the background.

Harry, Niall, Perrie, and I made dinner at around 6, and the kids went to bed early. Aleisha sat with Niall, Sameerah with Liam, Eleanor with Louis, Perrie with Zayn, and Me with Harry.

“We really appreciate you letting us stay at your house.” Sameerah smiled. But she wasn't looking at Harry. She was looking at me.

“It is really nice of Harry to let everyone stay here.” I agreed.

“Nice of both of you I meant.” She clearified.

“They think of it as half your house now.” Harry whispered in my ear. Oh... Well then...

“We're enjoying having you here.” I smiled back.

“What's the plan for tomorrow?” Aleisha asked. Plan? I didn't have a plan...

“Uh... I don't know for sure...” I replied.

“Nothing we can do to keep the kids busy...” Perrie added.

“Not yet, but I'll brainstorm.” I assured. Oh no... I had no clue what I was going to do. I leaned on Harry completely, suddenly too tired to hold myself up. He chuckled in my ear, then kissed the top of my head.

“Don't worry, I have some ideas.” He whispered. I nodded, relieved.

“We should go shopping sometime, and leave the kids with the guys.” Eleanor suggested.

“That would be fun.” I smiled.

“Are you sure they can handle them on their own?” Sameerah giggled.

“We can handle the kids” Zayn scoffed. Perrie laughed.

“What?” He asked.

“Nothing.” Perrie said smirking. All the boys seemed slightly offended.

“You guys can't deny, the kids listen better to us.” Aleisha grinned.

“Please. They listen to us just fine.” Louis argued. Niall left out a laugh, covering his mouth with his hand. That did not help their argument.

“But they listen to us better.” Eleanor smirked.

“I can't say I disagree.” Harry nodded.

“Don't join the dark side mate!” Liam laughed.

“Well...” Harry trailed off, then looked at me. “If Ariel is on the dark side...” He said slowly. I reached up and kissed his jaw, then patted his cheek.

“Good Harry.” I laughed. The boys groaned at him, but stopped trying to convince us of their argument. They were never going to admit to anything, though they all knew they were wrong. We all chatted for maybe 30 minutes more, but then Louis and Eleanor decided to go to bed. Not long after, Perrie and Zayn, then Aleisha and Niall, and finally, Liam and Sameerah. Harry and I were alone.

“Okay Mr. Styles. What are your activity ideas?” I asked, turning to face him. We both sat criss cross on the couch.

“Well, I thought we could set up some kid stuff in the basement.” He answered.

“Like what?” I questioned, not understanding what he meant.

“I was thinking, I could build them a fort...” He replied, blushing slightly. I smiled, imagining what a good father he would have been to a young Darcy. I felt my usual pang of guilt at what I did, but ignored it. 

“That sounds perfect. When do we start?” I asked, jumping up off the couch. Harry chuckled.

“We could start now.” He smirked, standing up as well. We went down to his basement. The family room was quite big, perfect for 9 children.

“Where do we begin?” I mused.

“Uhhh, I don't quite know, but I've got pillows and blankets in the hall closet, so if you could go grab those for me, that'd be great.” He responded. I nodded and went to the closet. When I opened it I was amazed. There were so many sleeping bags, pillows, blankets, and a bunch of other stuff in there. It took me three trips to bring it all to Harry. 

We worked on transforming the entire room into a new world.I worked for about an hour, but then ended up falling asleep on the couch. When I woke, Harry was asleep beside me, and the room was unrecognizable. I looked around with my mouth hanging open. It was absolutely incredible...
