26. A Visit From Benny

*1 Week Later*

It's only a few more days until the boys go back on tour. I'm kind of bummed but I'm also excited to be busy again. For the past week all I've been doing is hanging around the house with Harry. It's been really nice, but I'm ready for some excitement. All the boys have been texting me at least 3 times a day on my new iPhone 5, (thank you Harry), making sure everything's going well. They are so sweet.

 I was playing Temple Run on my phone when I got a text from an unfamiliar number. I thought it was just one of Harry's fans. They can figure out anything. I decided to respond.

From: 298-375-0294(random number): Is this Haley Reagan?

To: 298-375-0294: Yes.

From: 298-375-0294: Hey Haley-bug. It's Benny.

I totally forgot to text him! I put his info into my phone.

To: Benny!!: Hey Ben! What's up?

From: Benny!!: Nothing much. Hbu?

To: Benny!!: Just hanging around. So how have you been?

From: Benny!!: Really good. My boss at Nando's promoted me to Manager!

To: Benny!!: That's great!!! 

From: Benny!!: Yeah. How have you been? Recovering okay?

To: Benny!!: Yep. All the boys have been really supportive. I'm a lot better.

From: Benny!!: Good. I was really worried that you were going to be like...mentally affected.

To: Benny!!: Nope. I'm just the same old Haley.

Harry walked into the room carrying a cup of tea. "Careful. It's hot." he said handing it to me. "Thanks, babe." I said, taking a small sip. He wasn't lying. It was scolding. "Who you texting?" he asked, sitting down next to me. "Benny. The guy who helped me last week." I told him. "Why don't you ask him if he wants to come over for lunch?" Harry suggested. I smiled at him and nodded. 

To: Benny!!: You wanna come over for lunch?

From: Benny!!: Sure. Sounds like fun!

I texted him the address. "He'll be here at noon." I told Harry. "Great! There's something I need to thank him for." he said. I lifted one of my eyebrows. "And what would that be?" I asked. "For saving my baby girl." he said.

I smiled and looked away. He put his finger on my chin and turned my head back towards him. He leaned in and pecked my lips. I guess the kiss got a little passionate because before we knew it Benny was here knocking on our door. I jumped and pulled away from Harry. I stood up and fixed myself as much as possible. I ran over to the door and opened it.

"Benny!" I cheered, giving him a big hug. "Haley!" he said hugging back. I pulled away. "Come in!" I said excitedly. He smiled and walked in. "Wow. Nice house." he said in awe. I giggled. "Thanks." He followed me into the living room where Harry was sitting.

"Hey. I'm Harry. Haley's boyfriend." he said, standing up and shaking his hand. "I'm Benny. I've been friends with Haley for years." Benny said. Harry gave him one of those "man hugs". The ones where you high five them and then hug them with the other arm. Then you pat them on the back a few times. I think they're quite weird but I guess it's just a guy thing.

"It's so nice to meet you, Benny. Haley has told me so much about you." Harry said. "Same to you." he said back. They sat down and started talking. I walked into the kitchen and got a bowl of barbecue potato chips, Benny's favorite. I started to go back into the living room when I stopped. I listened to Harry and Benny's conversation.

"Thanks so much, mate. You have helped Haley so much. I owe you the world." I heard Harry say. "Anything for you guys." Benny said. They were both quiet for a moment. "Just out of curiosity, do you think that you're gonna pop the big question to her one day?" Benny whispered. "I think so. Not anytime too soon, though. But definitely in the future." Harry whispered back. I felt myself blush. Me being married to Harry. That would be amazing.

I walked back into the room and put the chips down on the coffee table. Benny grinned at me. "You know me well." I nodded and sat down next to Harry. "So how long have you known Haley?" Harry asked Benny. "Ever since we were like 8. We were best friends and hung out all the time up until my family and I moved to California when we were in 6th grade." Benny said. "What about you? When did you guys meet?"

"About five months ago in high-school. I did part of 12th grade over in the states." Harry said. I could tell Benny was a tad confused by the look on his face. I got to admit, I was a bit confused myself. Oh well, we'll talk about it later. We talked for a good hour.

"Can you go somewhere else for a while? I want to talk to Benny alone for a bit." Harry whispered in my ear. I got the message. I nodded and walked upstairs to the top floor. I sat down to play the piano. I had been working on writing a song recently. It was actually done, but it wasn't very good.

I heard a ringing noise and looked over at mine and Harry's new iPad 5, (thank you Harry, again). Someone wanted to Skype. I picked it up and answered it. Niall's face popped up on the screen. "Hey Nialler!" I said. "Hey Hal! How are you doing?" he asked. I smiled. "I'm doing great."

"What are you doing?" he asked me curiously. "Oh, nothing." I said, moving away from the piano. "Come on. What is it?" I sighed. "Well, I'm just...kinda...working on like...a song." I told him nervously. "That's so cool! What's it called?" "I don't really know yet." I said. "Play it for me." he demanded. "It's not done yet." I lied. "Please?" he begged, making a puppy dog face. "Fine. But I'm not singing."

I sat down and started to play. I didn't sing, but I did hum it. After I was done Niall clapped. "That was really good! And thanks for at least humming it for me." he said. I blushed. "No problem." "I want to hear you sing it." he told me. "Maybe some other time." I said. He sighed. "Okay." I heard Harry calling for me. "I gotta go. Bye!" I said. "Bye, beautiful." he said before hanging up.

I sighed and looked at the piano. I hate it that Niall likes me. He's definitely one of my best friends and I don't want that to be ruined. I walked back downstairs. "I got to go, Haley. I have to go to work for a while." Benny told me when I got downstairs. "Okay. I'll text you later." I told him.

He wrapped his arms around me and I hugged him back. "You really got yourself a great boyfriend, Haley-bug." he whispered in my ear. "I know." I said, pulling away and standing next to Harry. "Thanks again." Harry said giving him a hug. Benny smiled and walked out. Harry closed the door.

"Now, where were we?" he asked with a mischievous smile on his face. He went up to me and started kissing me. "Harry." I groaned. He pulled away. "What?" he asked. "Can we do this later?" I asked. He sighed. "Okay." We walked back into the living room and sat down.

"So what did you do while you were upstairs?" he asked me. "Not much. I just fiddled around. I did Skype Niall." I told him. "What about you? What did you and Benny talk about?" He hesitated. "Nothing. Just guy stuff." he said quickly. I cocked my head. He didn't say anything.

His phone started to ring. He took it out of his pocket and answered it. "Hello?" he said. I heard the faint sound of a girl talking. He smiled really big and looked at me. "Who is it?" I asked quietly. He whispered to me.
