The Story of Us || Harry Styles AU

The truth was, Audrey always dreamt of being where she was now. Always. But never in a million years did she ever think it would happen or that it could happen. Living in the confines of New York City can place anyone in the oddest of circumstances. And the day she walked into that diner, changed her life forever. Being a One Direction fan was for life. But so were the vows she took. It was always him. Forever.
The moment he met her, he knew. It hit him like a ton of bricks. It was almost surreal to look into a her eyes and know he was going to spend the rest of his life with her. But with Audrey, it was instantaneous. There was no other way to explain it. He wanted to be a better man for her.


6. [Six]


New York City – May 11th, 2016


“Is there anything I can get you? We have… uh, water,” Harry asked, smirking over at Audrey as he stood in front of the opened refrigerator.

“You guys seriously need to do some grocery shopping,” Audrey giggled, remembering when she and Niall were in the same spot a week before.

“We do,” Harry laughed as he shut the fridge before walking over to her by the counter.

“Is Niall home?” She asked curiously.

“Who knows?” Harry said with a shrug.

“Ah,” she nodded.

“I mean, do you want him to be home?” Harry asked, his eyebrows furrowing.

“No. I was just wondering. We don’t need Niall crashing our first date, now do we?” Audrey said, smiling at him.

“No. No, we don’t,” Harry said as his lips curled up into a smile.

They just got back from dinner – a very nice dinner Harry took her to, which was absolutely amazing. She was definitely not used to that kind of luxury – the kind that Harry could afford. But honestly, she didn’t need things like that to impress her. Harry already did that all on his own. What he didn’t know was she was already hooked. He could have brought her to McDonald’s and she would have had the time of her life because she was with him.

“So, what do you want to do now?” Audrey asked him, quirking an eyebrow.

“I don’t know. We can talk some more. I like getting to know you better,” he said, smiling at her as he took her hand in his.

“I like getting to know the real you,” Audrey said, smiling at him as he led her out of the kitchen toward the living room.

“Not what your PR would have me believe,” Audrey added in, to poke fun at his distaste of the bands public relations team.

Harry let out a snicker as they sat down on the long sectional couch together, his hand still in hers. Just as naturally as she and Niall were able to become friends, so did she and Harry. And just a short week before, Harry asked her out – and not just on a date. He had asked her for exclusivity – for her to be his girlfriend.

It was still surreal. How could the one boy on the planet she set her sights on so long ago, all of a sudden come crashing into her life wanting to be with her too? All she knew for sure was if this was all a dream, she didn’t want to wake up.

“I really like you, Audrey,” Harry breathed, his eyes focused on their intertwined fingers.

“You do?” She asked quietly, watching as his eyes finally met with hers.

“I do. I wish there was a way I could make you believe it,” he said sincerely.

“I-I do believe it. I just… it’s just going to take some getting used to,” she told him truthfully.

“I know I haven’t had the time you have to develop my feelings, but I feel them, Audrey. They came fast and they hit me hard. I just want you to know…” He said, trailing off.

“My feelings for you didn’t develop,” Audrey said, smirking bashfully at him.

“What do you mean?” He asked, furrowing his brow in question.

“It was like a speeding freight train that smashed into me. The first time we kissed, it was like an addiction that could never be satisfied unless it was you satisfying it. And whatever, it’s stupid because I admired you from afar for so long and this is probably just ridiculous. I mean, you’re absolutely crazy for falling for someone like me, you know,” she told him with a bashful smile.

“Yeah,” he chuckled, caressing his hand across her cheek.

“But… I mean, we’re here,” she said with a passive shrug.

“We’re here,” he said, cupping her cheek with his hand.

There was a brief moment where their eyes did all the talking, just staring into one another’s. And then he leaned in, leaving the perfect kiss on her lips and she wondered what she did right in her life to get someone as wonderful as him. Why did she deserve this man?

When Harry pulled back from the kiss, Audrey wasn’t ready to let him go, so she snaked her hand behind his neck and pulled his lips back to hers. Their lips moved fluidly, adapting wonderfully to each other. Harry’s body moved forward against Audrey’s, dominating her with his entire being. His hand slipped down to her thigh, pulling it up against his hip. It wasn’t long before she could feel his arousal against her and it made her ache for him. But within a split second, Harry pulled himself away and Audrey was left looking up at him wondering why.

“This… this isn’t why I asked you back here. I-I wasn’t… I mean, I’m not…” He stammered, looking flustered as she ran his fingers through his wild hair.

“Harry…” Audrey breathed, biting at her bottom lip, trying to hold back a smile.

“I want you to know that… that this isn’t just physical, Audrey,” he told her, the look on his face was so serious.

“Harry, I know. I know. Believe me,” she said, sitting up to be able to look him in the eye.

“I just don’t want you to think that’s all I am out for,” he told her sincerely, shaking his head lightly.

“I don’t think that, okay. I don’t,” she told him and he nodded his head.

“But, Harry,” she said and waited until he turned his head back to look her in the eye.

“I mean, I’m not going to think any less of you for wanting to,” she told him and he nodded again.

“Because I want to too,” she continued. His face lightened almost immediately, letting a smirk form on his lips.

“I mean, we’ve done it before,” she reminded him, smirking bashfully.

“We have,” he breathed.

“And now we’re… I’m your girlfriend, Harry. You’re my boyfriend. We’re together,” she explained.

“Yeah,” he agreed.

“Come on,” she said, grabbing his hand in her as she got up off the couch. Audrey pulled Harry flush against her body, kissing him again.

“There’s no harm in doing things that boyfriends and girlfriends do,” she told him, finding a bravery she never knew she possessed.

“No harm,” he agreed, smiling as he leaned in to kiss her again.

Audrey let Harry lead her to his room with the dark walls and comfortable bed – the bed she spent the night with him in on only one other occasion several weeks before. The bed that brought her to a whole other level with this wonderful man. And she wanted that over and over again. She wanted him – all of him. And she was pretty sure he was willing to give it, as she was ready to give herself right back.



New York City – May 21st, 2016


“Do it, Audrey,” Niall said, looking at her through the mirror.

“Are you sure, Niall?” She asked, giving him a somber look.

“I’m sure. Just do it,” he said again.

“Okay, Nike. But don’t blame me when you hate the end result,” she scoffed playfully at him.

“I’m not going to blame you. And I’m not going to hate it. Just do it already,” he urged her.

“That’s what she said,” Audrey said under her breath as she grabbed a pair of sheers in her hand to cut his hair. Niall rolled his eyes and shook his head at her over-used sexual joke.

Sit still,” Audrey shrieked, gripping onto his scalp with her fingers to still him.

She was nervous enough as it was. She had the horrifying task of cutting off Niall Horan’s famous bleached blonde hair, which would in-turn bring it back to his natural brown since the blonde was so over-grown. Girls all over the world were going to mourn those beautiful blonde locks, including her.

“You should have a professional do this…” Audrey said, cringing as she ran his hair through her fingers before holding it in place.

“On with it already,” Niall told her with a laugh.

“Here goes nothing,” Audrey said, closing her eyes as she brought the sheers up to his hair.

“Audrey!” Niall snapped and her eyes shot open to find his in the mirror.

“Keep your eyes open,” he chuckled, looking at her like she was crazy.

Oh, Jesus,” she said, positioning her fingers in his hair again.

“Are you sure about this?” She asked again, biting her lip.

Do it, Audrey!” Niall pressed and she knew he meant business.

“Fine! Ahhhhh,” she cried out as she cut a strip of his perfect blonde hair off his head, watching as it hit the marble floor.

Oh man, oh man, oh man,” Audrey huffed as she cut more and more.

“Do you have to make sound effects every time?” Niall chuckled, looking at her through the mirror.

“This is traumatic, Niall!” She yelped, looking at him incredulously.

“It’s just hair, Audrey,” he laughed.

“But… but, it’s your hair. Your blonde hair is famous, you know,” she protested.

“Sell it on e-bay then,” he joked.

“I’d be rich,” she scoffed as she cut more and more.

“I am going to have nightmares about this,” she mumbled under her breath.

“It’ll be fine,” he assured her.

“Girls are going to flip out,” she said, shaking her head as she continued to sculpt his hair, hoping she was doing it correctly. She took a few cosmetology classes in college before she realized it wasn’t for her. Which was why she knew this was a bad idea.

“In a good way?” He asked, smirking at her through the mirror.

“Mostly in a weeping, crying way,” Audrey told him and he just laughed.

“Are you giving me a faux-hawk?” Niall quirked his eyebrow at her as she continued to cut the sides before even touching the top.

“What of it?” She said, smirking back at him.

“I don’t think a faux-hawk is my kind of hairstyle, Aud,” he chuckled.

“You should always try things at least once,” she claimed, smiling after she finished sculpting his perfect blonde ‘hawk.

“Here,” she said, pulling her phone out of her pocket. He turned his head toward her and sent her a glare.

“Smile,” she said, holding up the phone in front of him to snap a picture. He didn’t even crack a hint of a smile. He just looked at her expressionless.

“Girls like personality, Horan,” she said, smirking at him.

“My personality is fine and I don’t need a girl,” he told her matter-of-factly.

God. Does music seriously make you that happy?” She asked, looking at him through the mirror.

“Yes, it does,” he said seriously and she let out a laugh.

“What about companionship? What about kissing and cuddling and… and sex?” She questioned, feeling her cheeks flush from her words. Niall’s eyebrow quirked and his lips pursed as he looked at her through the mirror.

“Oh, don’t look at me like that,” she laughed as she felt her cheeks heat up with blush.

“My sex life is fine,” he told her with a suggestive quirk of his eyebrow.

Hmm,” she hummed, focusing back on his hair as she tried not to think about Niall’s sex life.

“How are you and Harry doing?” He asked as he cleared his throat, changing the subject from his love life to hers.

“Oh, um. We’re… we’re good,” she said, nodding her head.

“And the sex?” Niall asked. Audrey’s wide eyes shot up to his in the mirror and she saw the mischievous smirk on his lips.

“Hey, you asked me about my sex life, friend,” he said sarcastically. Audrey laughed out loud at his little semblance of a joke.

“Oh, you know. We’re banging like rabbits. Just, you know, every night… for hours and hours. Until we pretty much pass out from exhaustion,” she joked, causing Niall to laugh out loud.

“Sounds… painful,” he said, making as disgusted face.

“Oh, it’s all pleasure, Horan. Nothing but pure pleasure,” she said suggestively.

Whoa,” they heard Harry’s voice and Audrey’s eyes snapped up to him in the mirror. He was standing in the doorway of Niall’s bathroom looking at the two of them.

“What the hell is going on in here?” Harry asked with a sideways smirk.

“Oh, you know. I’m just defiling Niall. The usual,” Audrey joked, talking about Niall’s haircut.

“And taking about ‘pleasure’?” Harry asked, looking at her oddly.

“We were just talking about how you two bang like… what was it? Rabbits?” Niall chuckled, sending Audrey a playfully smirk.

“What?” Harry asked, entirely confused, yet he kept his smile on his face.

“Niall’s joking. He’s totally joking,” Audrey said, smacking Niall on the arm.

“You two are quite odd,” Harry said, looking at them curiously.

Audrey is odd,” Niall scoffed playfully.

“Niall Horan! You are the oddest person on the planet,” she giggled, shoving his shoulder.

Ohh-kay,” Harry said awkwardly. Audrey looked up at him and realized they were making him feel uncomfortable with their inside jokes and such.

“You just missed it, Harry. Niall had a faux-hawk,” Audrey said, trying to include him.

“Oh, cool,” Harry said, smirking at her.

“It wasn’t that cool,” Niall said, rolling his eyes.

“You’re lame,” Audrey scoffed at Niall.

“Are you almost done?” Niall asked with an impatient, yet playful huff.

“You can’t rush perfection, Niall!” She warned him.

“So, I’m gonna… I’ll be in my room,” Harry said to them.

“Okay,” Audrey said quietly as she watched him walk out of the bathroom.

She quietly set down the sheers and picked up the small set of clippers to put the finishing touches on Niall’s haircut.

“You got really quiet all of a sudden,” Niall pointed out.

“I think it makes Harry uncomfortable to see me and you… I don’t know,” she said with a shrug.

“To see me and you, what? We’re just friends,” Niall said, furrowing his eyebrows.

“Yeah, but… I don’t know. We’re close. Like I think I know you better than I know him,” she told him.

“But he’s your boyfriend,” Niall said obviously.

“Well, yeah, I know. But still. I know you better,” she told him as she concentrated on his sideburn.

“Maybe if you didn’t bang like rabbits all the time…” Niall said under his breath with a smirk on his lips.

“Shut up,” she giggled lightly, pushing his shoulder again and he laughed out loud.

“There. All done. Now you’re just some tool with brown hair,” Audrey joked as she smirked at him through the mirror.

“I resent that,” he said dryly, giving her his best unamused look.

“You’re still cute, Nialler,” she proclaimed, smiling as she pinched his cheek.

“Get off me and go get to know your boyfriend,” he laughed, swatting her hand away.

“Let me help you clean this up,” she told him in all seriousness.

“I’ve got it, Audrey,” he told her.

“Are you sure?” She asked, hesitating slightly.

“Get outta here,” he said, waving her off.

“Alright,” she said, setting the clippers down on the countertop before she moved toward the door.

“Hey, Niall,” she said, stopping just before she walked out.

“Yeah?” He questioned, looking up at her.

“Make sure you bag that hair up nicely. I wanna get top dollar for it on e-bay,” she quipped, smirking wildly at him.

“I hope you’re joking,” he said, eyeing her skeptically.

Audrey laughed out loud as she rounded the corner out of bathroom before going to find Harry.

“Hi,” she said quietly, standing in the open doorway of the spare bedroom Harry called home while he was in New York.

“Hey,” he said, smiling widely, standing up from the edge of the bed where he was sitting. Audrey took a step toward him and he took two toward her.

“Close the door,” Harry breathed.

Audrey smiled and did what she was told. She and Harry were still getting to know each other. It wasn’t all sex, sex, sex like she joked about with Niall. But there certainly was an aspect of it in their relationship. They both enjoyed all the time they got with one another.

“So, you told Niall we’ve been banging like rabbits?” Harry asked, smirking against her lips before he left a light kiss on them.

Oh my god,” Audrey sighed, an embarrassed smile plastered on her face.

“Since when do you talk to him about our sex life?” Harry asked, keeping the teasing smirk on his face.

“I swear, I never meant it to come up,” she said, holding her hand over her face to hide her embarrassment.

“How did it come up?” He asked curiously.

“I don’t know. We were talking about girls weeping over his hair. And he said something like he doesn’t need a girl. And I asked him if he missed the kissing and the cuddling and the sex. I mean, I just blurted it out like an idiot. Like, who in their right mind asks one of the dudes of One Direction about their sex life?” she explained, tacking on the last bit as a joke.

“Yeah, because none of us fuck like rabbits,” Harry said in a playful, sarcastic tone.

“Right. So, yeah. Then, like… he brought up our sex life as a joke. And I jokingly said we bang like rabbits. So… yeah,” she explained, feeling all the blood pool in her cheeks as the embarrassment nearly killed her.

“You two have a really odd relationship,” Harry laughed out loud.

“We really do,” she laughed, nodding her head in agreement.

“Either way, I like coming home to find you’re already here when I’ve been thinking about you all day,” he said, smiling down at her as he slid his hands smoothly up and down her arms.

Audrey bit her lip trying to stifle her ridiculous smile, looking at him bashfully. It was probably one of the sweetest things anyone had ever said to her. Harry was always full of beautiful words and he made her heart swell every time he spoke them to her.

His lips pressed against hers in a sweet kiss and she could feel herself melting into him.

“Now that you’re finished scalping Niall, do you think you have a little time to spend with your beau?” He asked, smirking against her lips.

“I think I could check my schedule,” she quipped, smiled back as she left a light kiss on his mouth.

“Fit me in, please,” he said with a whine as he tugged her body closer to his.

She loved being in his arms, with his hands exploring the curves of her body while his tongue explored the slope of her mouth. He was her dream come true. She was nothing more than just an idealist before he came along. And the fact that he chose her, the fact that he wanted her still continued to blow her mind on a daily basis. She was his and he was hers. And all was well.

Audrey lay in Harry’s arms, their naked bodies pressed tightly together. There was something so satisfying about making love in the middle of the day. Could she really call it making love? They hadn’t declared such things to each other. Yet, yes. She would call it making love. Everything with Harry was just so lovely.

“Have you ever heard of fanfiction?” Audrey asked him out of the blue. He laughed out loud at her question.

“What?” She asked with a smile as she looked up at him.

“Yes. I’ve heard of fanfiction. Why?” He asked, smirking wildly at her.

“I don’t know. Sometimes I just feel like I’m living in one,” she sighed, resting her head back against his chest.

“Why because you were a fan?” He asked, still chuckling lightly.

“I am a fan,” she told him matter-of-factly.

“My biggest fan?” He questioned happily.

“Of course. I am devoted to you,” she breathed.

“Devoted, huh?” He asked, craning his neck to see her face.

“I am,” she told him honestly.

“Hey,” he said, curling his fingers under her chin to meet their vision.

Hmm,” she hummed.

“I’m devoted to you too,” he told her in all seriousness.

She gave him a soft smile just before his lips pressed against hers again.

“This is real life,” he reassured her.

“I’m glad,” she breathed, snuggling against him once again.

He made her so happy. It was hard not to walk around with butterflies in her stomach when she was with him… or even when she thought of him. And even though they’d only been seeing each other for a short time, she knew they were meant to be. She never really believed in fate until Harry came into her life. But honestly, there was no other explanation for it. It was kismet. He was her destiny.
