The Thrill To My Styles!

This was no ordinary girl. No, she had no intention of falling in love and yet it happened... Taking care of her siblings all by herself, having to quit college to begin parenting to her 4 siblings. That's when an awkward curly-headed boy stole her heart.


5. Too much for a first "date"

I texted him my address. I started browning the hamburger to make spaghetti. About 5-10 minutes after we hung up, he knocked on my door.

Me: Kids, do not tell Harry what happened with mom and dad and that I stayed in a mental hospital.

The all nodded. I answered the door.

Me: Hey, Harry.

Harry: Hey, Monica.

Me: Come on in.

Harry: It smells great.

He whispered to me putting his arm around my waist.

Me: Thanks.

I gently removed his arm.

Harry: What do you want to go to school for?

Me: I wanted to do law school and I received a scholarship for Harvard and everything, but I gave up that dream to take care of my siblings.

Harry: Wow! You are unbelievable.

Me: I know!

I giggled.

Me: I’m gonna go check on dinner.

I walked to the kitchen and checked on dinner.

Harry’s POV:

Me: I really hope this dinner goes well. I really like your sister.

Matt: Just follow my lead and You’ll do great. She likes guys that are sweet, genuine, and takes an interest in more than just her looks.

Me: How do you know this?

I laughed.
Matt: Reading her diary. I used to, but not anymore. I am more mature.

Me: well I definitely need a lot of help.

Matt: I got you man.

Monica's POV:
The kids walked out and came to the table with Harry. Harry got up to dish up, but I stopped him.

Me: I got it, hon. I can dish you up.

Harry: I can do it.

Me: I insist. you’re a guest.

I dished everybody up and myself and sat at the table.

Matt: Who was your first kiss?

Me: Um... Remember that kid that lived next door to us at our 3rd London house?

Matt: Logan?!? You kissed Logan?!?

Me: Mhmm.

I said with my mouth full.

Harry: What's wrong with Logan?

Me: Nothing's wrong with him. He just was a player.

Matt: A total ass hole. He treats girls awful.

Me: Hey, no cursing at the dinner table.

Matt: Sorry. Do you like Harry?

Harry elbowed Matt.

Me: Yeah. he’s sweet.

Harry smiled.
Matt: then why Don’t you go out with him?

Me: I’d like to, but you guys are my priority. I went from being a college student, to raising 4 kids.

Matt was being weird asking me all kinds of personal questions.

Harry: You quit college?

Me: Yeah. I had to. I couldn’t make my aunt raise them. She's sweet, but not their intermediate family. They are more important than any school.

Harry: Yeah. You are amazing!
I smiled.
Me: Thank you.

We continued talking while we ate.

Me: Jake, elbows off the table.

Jake: Whats it like being in One Direction?

Harry: Its brilliant. Dream come true.

Rebecca: You are brilliant.

Harry: Thanks love. You are too.

She squealed to herself in excitement.

I cleared the table and started cleaning the kitchen. The kids all watched TV in my room. Harry walked up behind me and started putting things away.
Me: I got this, Harry.

I took the things out of his hand.

Harry: Really, its not a problem.

Me: Just relax. you’re a guest.

David started crying.
Me: Ugh! Gimme a minute. He's hungry.

I made him a bottle and walked into my room where the kids were watching TV.

Matt: How are things going with Harry?

Me: Good I guess. David! Please stop crying.

I stuck the bottle in his mouth and he instantly grew quiet.

Me: Matty can you clean the kitchen for me?

Matty: Sure sis. I’ll tell Harry to come in here.

Me: Thank you. Jake and Becca, you guys can sleep in the spare room. There's a bed in there you two can use.

They nodded their heads.

Me: It's almost 10. Go to bed, There’s school in the morning for the three of you.

Jake: Okay.
They both gave me hugs and went to bed. Harry walked in.

Harry: Hey.

Me: Hey. he’s almost asleep.

He put his arm around my waist and rocked back and forth with me. I looked up at him and smiled. David drifted to sleep.

Harry: It sucks that I have to go back to London.

Me: Yeah. I’m from there. I moved here when my mum and dad died.

Harry: When was that?

Me: 2 months ago.

Harry: Is David yours?

Me: No. My mum gave birth to him the day she died.

There was a long silence then he spoke up.

Harry: I’m so sorry.

Me: Its okay. I am doing alright.

There was another silence but this time it was interrupted with a kiss. The kiss was interrupted by Matty.

Matt: Oh.. um.. I’m so sorry.

Me: Its fine, sweetie. What do you need?

Matt: The kitchens done.

Me: Do you want me to make you a bed on the sofa?

Matt: Please.

Me: Do you mind feeding David a bottle while I make him his bed, Harry?

Harry: Of course.

I handed Harry the baby and walked over to the closet. I grabbed two pillows, a sheet and a warm comforter. I tucked in the sheet under the comforter and threw the pillows on the head of the sofa. He kissed my cheek.
Matt: Thank you.

Me: Of course!

Harry and I walked with David into my room. We sat on my bed.

Me: I’d offer you a beer if we were in London.

I joked.
Harry: That’s the only thing I hate about America.

Me: Me too. I wish I could move back home. London is just so damn pretty.

Harry: Why'd you move to America.

Me: To get away from everything, everyone. I had to run away and take my siblings with me.

Harry: Will you go out with me?

Me: I’d love too, but-

Harry: Yes!

Me: You didn’t let me finish. I’d love to, but I just Don’t have time for a relationship right now. I need to focus on my kids. I’m sorry.

Harry: I understand.

Me: So, you still live in London?

Harry: Yeah. The boys and I are here for 6 months.

Me: Cool. We can all hang out together.

Harry: Yeah. That'd be great.

His phone rang. He answered it.

Harry’s POV:

Me: Hello?
Zayn: Hey, Man. Forget about tonight's practice?

Me: Shit! Aw man, I forgot.

Zayn: Are you coming?

Me: Yeah, man. I’ll be there gimme an hour.

Zayn: An hour?
Me: Yeah. Gotta go. Bye.

I hung up. I really wanted to kiss her but I wasn’t sure how she’d react. She reacted great before, but I Don’t know... I had to take my chances. I leaned in and kissed her. She kissed me back for like 10 seconds before it grew more intense. I set the baby gently in the cradle thing next to the bed. I slowly got on top of her and started unbuttoning her shirt.

Monica's POV:

I wasn’t sure where I was going with this. Tension was intense and the temperature was getting hot. I had to stop him.

Me: Wait...

Harry: What is it, Love?

Me: N-nothing. It’s just... I’m not ready for that kind of commitment and I Don’t have time for it anyways.

Harry: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to offend you in any way.

Me: N-no. I-it’s my fault. I’m not ready. I’m sorry that I lead you on.

Harry: Its okay, sweetie.

He started buttoning my shirt back up.

Harry: You wanna hang out with me and the guys tomorrow while the kids are at school? Danielle and Eleanor are coming too.
Me: I’d love to.
