Next morning, I woke up to the sound of my phone beeping. Yes, I’m a light sleeper unless I was sad or crying before I sleep.
I picked up my phone and opened the new message I received.
Can’t wait to see u –Harry x
I smiled at the text and decided to text him back.
Same here –Sarah xx
I pressed send and got off the bed. I made my way to the bathroom, showered and wore:
(without the bag)
I straightened my hair and ran down the stairs to have breakfast. I made myself a bowl of cereal and started eating.
“Just shoot for the stars if it feels right, and aim for my heart if you feel like-“ my phone rang. I ran to it and saw the caller ID. Harry. I picked it up and answered.
“Haaaaarryyyy” I sang
“Saaraaaaaah” he mocked me and I giggled
“Are you ready for tonight?” he asked
“Yup! And very excited too” I told him and he chuckled
“So..what are you doing?”
“Umm I just finished my breakfast and I have nothing to do. Ryan’s sleeping and I’m dying here from boredom” I said and sighed
“Uhhh same here!” he said “So, do you wanna kill the boredom and go out?” he offered and I smiled widely
“Yeah sure. Where?” I asked
“Umm let’s just have a walk” he suggested and I nodded eagerly. It helps me relax.
“Sure. Umm will you pick me up or we’ll meet somewhere?” I asked
“I’ll pick you up. Give me the address” he said
I gave him the address and hang up.
I wrote a note for Ryan, telling her that I’m out with Harry so she won’t freak out. I placed the note on the side table next to her bed and waited for Harry in the lounge room.
Yes! I’m going out with Sarah. Thank goodness she took it as a friendly date or else she would’ve refused.
I wrote a note for the lads, telling them that I’m with Sarah and that I won’t be back before 4:00.
I looked at my watch. It read 1:35. I walked to her house because it wasn’t too far from mine. I went to the address she gave me and stood there amazed of what I saw. Her house looked like this:
How do they live here alone? They need someone with them.
I rang the doorbell. In less than 1 minute, the most beautiful girl opened up for me.
“Harry!” she said and hugged me
“Hope I’m not late” I said and she giggled
“Nope, you’re not” she said and took my hand.
If she only knows what her touch does to me…
“So…you’re saying that you guys didn’t audition together in the X-Factor but when you all get rejected, you ended up together” she said and I nodded.
“Yup! And that was the beginning of One Direction” I said with a posh tone, making her laugh.
“Harry, you’re stupid” she said between laughs
“And you like me like that” I said and winked at her and she blushed
“You know, I never had so much fun like today since I was 15” she said and I gave her a confused look.
“You’re having fun while walking?” I asked her and she nodded
“Yeah, I love walking. It releases the stress sometimes. I'm not stressed now. I’m happy, with someone I trust with my life and can talk to about anything without hesitation” she explained. Her words made me melt from the inside.
“Th-Thank you” I said and blushed. She giggled.
“No Harry. I’m the one who should thank you. You make me feel happy and safe. You knew how to make me smile. Without you……” she paused for a moment “I would’ve been dying at home from boredom now” she said and I laughed.
I hugged her and kissed her forehead. Her words were able to form tears in my eyes. I wiped them away quickly before she notices them.
“Thanks for today, Harry. We’re waiting you all tonight” I said and hugged him.
“No problem. And we’ll be here in time” he said and kissed my cheek. I felt the blood rise to my cheeks.
“Bye” he said and took off. I just stood there and waved.
I unlocked the door of my house and walked in. I saw Ryan sitting on the lounge texting someone.
“Had fun out there with Harry?” she asked and smirked.
I rolled my eyes but nodded. “Yeah”
She giggled and stood up. “Let’s go get something for the boys” she said and I shook my head.
“You go, I’ll stay here and cook something for them” I told her and she nodded.
“Okay, what do I get?” she asked and gave me a goofy smile.
“Get every junk food in your way, chocolates for me and carrots for Louis” I said and she giggled.
“Carrots?” she asked
“Yup, Harry said that Louis loves carrots” I said and she laughed.
“I guess there are many Alexis-es on earth” she said, referring to my sister who’s mentally married to carrots. I laughed.
“Just go” I said and pushed her to the door.
“Don’t forget my Snickers and Twix!” I told her and she laughed and left.
So, yeah. My sister’s married to carrots and I’m married to chocolates. I sighed and went to the kitchen.
“So, what should I cook for them?” I asked myself.
I thought of Lasagne and went to see if I have its ingredients. Yes, I have them. I washed my hands and everything I’ll be using to cook.
Dinner was in the oven, Ryan was in her room and I was in the lounge room texting Niall. He said that they’re near the house now.
“Ryan! Get down here!” I yelled and saw her going down the stairs.
“Go take out the food from the oven before it burns” Ryan informed me and I ran to the kitchen.
I opened the oven’s door and took the lasagne tray out. I inhaled its scent that made my stomach growl.
The doorbell rang as I placed the tray on the counter to cool down a bit. I ran to the door and saw Ryan standing there with the boys.
“Hey everyone” I said with a smile and waved for them.
They ran to me and tackled me in a bone crushing hug.
“Boys……Can’t….breath” I choked out. They laughed and let go.
“It’s okay, they’ve done that to me too” Ryan said and I laughed.
The boys roamed around the house. They looked at me and Ryan with wide eyes.
“You live here…..alone?!” Louis asked, amazed.
“Ummm yeah” Ryan said and shrugged
“Wow! It’s huge!” Zayn stated
“You’ve seen it once” I said
“I know, but I was too nervous to notice” he told me and I giggled.
“So what are the sleeping arrangements?” Liam asked
“We have 5 rooms. One isn’t furnished yet so two will share a room and other two will be sharing with me and Ryan” I said and they nodded
We went upstairs to choose the rooms we’ll be sleeping in. Sarah and Ryan didn’t tell us which ones are their rooms so I hope that the one I choose is Sarah’s.
“So, that’s the first room” Sarah said pointing to this one:
Sarah told me once that the walls in her bedroom were red because it’s her favourite colour. I guess that’s her room.
“I’ll be staying here” I said and raised my hand. She smiled.
“Well, that’s my room. Put your stuff here” she pointed to an area in her room. Yes!!
I put my stuff were I was told to put them in and exited mine and her room to see the other rooms.
“And that’s the second room, who likes to stay here?” Ryan asked
It looked like this:
(pretend that the picture above the bed is Ryan’s)
“I’ll stay here” Liam said and Ryan’s face lit up. She showed him where to put his stuff and exited the room.
“And these are the other rooms” Sarah said, pointing to this:
“I’ll stay in the blue one” Zayn and Niall said at the same time. They looked at each other and laughed.
“So I’ll have a king-sized bed for myself?” Louis asked happily
“Yup! It’s all yours” Sarah said and Louis made a happy dance and ran to his room. We laughed at his ridiculousness and went downstairs.
“I smell Lasagne” Niall said. I sniffed a bit and smelled it too.
“I can smell it too” I said and Sarah blushed
“That’s your dinner” she said and led us to the kitchen. She took the Lasagne tray and placed it on the table we’ll be eating on.
We all sat and Ryan started serving us soft drinks and lasagne. I took a bite of the food and my eyes widened.
“Who cooked this?” I asked.
“M-Me” Sarah said nervously
“It’s the best thing I’ve ever tasted” I said and started digging in my food. She sighed a sigh of relief and smiled.
“Yup, it is the best thing I’ve ever tasted too” Niall said. Sarah’s smile got wider.
“Thank God” she said
I guess we’ll be having a good time today…
