falling in love with your best friend is hard, but when your best friend is in a new boy band, and is traveling the world to promote the boy band one direction, things are probably more than hard. Heather is about to find out if Harry is worth it, or if he’s going to leave her for someone else.
I was in complete darkness, eyelids closed, my head resting on his chest, my fingertips touching his stomach. Then without any warning, I felt myself being moved by someone. My head got moved on to a pillow, and that woke me up instantly. I looked around to see where I was, but I couldn’t see anything, it was pitch black in the room. Then I heard a light switch being flicked and the light bulb above my head came to life. I winced in the light that I wasn’t used to, and looked and looked up to see a tall figure with curly hair. I smiled at him, today was going to change his life forever, and I was going to watch it happen. He looked down at me lying on his bed, “morning” he said in his soft voice, I looked into his beautiful green eyes, “you’re going to be amazing today you know,” I smiled at him, “you really think so?” he asked, with a nervous tone in his voice, “Of course, why would I lie to you?” he smiled “it means so much Heather, but I’m not sure I’m going to be so good.” I frowned, “What’s wrong?” “I have a cold..” he looked like he was about to cry, I stood up and hugged him “Don’t let anything get in your way, a stupid cold wouldn’t get in the way if you were performing with White Eskimo.” He looked away from me “but this is more than a battle of the bands competition, and I had the other boys to support me then, now I don’t I have only my vocals, on a stage, in front of Simon Cowell…” He turned around and walked towards the door, I quickly stood in his way, “You’re going to be brilliant, I know you are, please don’t give up just because you have a cold, I bet your voice doesn’t even sound bad..” He smiled at me, I guided him towards his bed, “just sit down for a minute, you got up an hour early,” he nodded he was lying on his bed, staring at the ceiling; I sat near his head, playing with his giant head of curls. He smiled at me, looking right into my light blue eyes, I carried on playing with his curls, I love my best friend Harry Styles.
I sat on the train, making my way to see my best friend who lived in London, I was with my best friends, Amaia, Antonia and Hannah. Amaia and Antonia are sisters, they both look similar, both with the same naturally curly hair, but Antonia dyes hers too have a red tint, whereas Amaia keeps her natural, they’re both stunning. Hannah has light brown hair and green eyes; she’s really pretty and I really nervous about them all meeting the boys. What if they all prefer these girls to me? I decided not to voice my worry, but what if it does happen? I looked out of the window as the Norfolk scenery fades away as we rushed through. I love living in Norwich, but it gets very boring. After a 2 hour train drive, we all grabbed our bags and went to meet Harry on the platform. Harry Styles is my best friend, and I love him more than anyone will ever know, partly because I can’t explain how much he means to me, but I also think no one would understand. He’s my best friend, and now thanks to the x-factor, he’s famous. I am so proud of him, but at the same time, I don’t know what to do, I mean, I don’t want to sound horrible, but he was always my Harry, no one in my school knew of him, and now everyone is asking me to give him their number, or if there’s any ‘dirty’ secrets about him. I don’t like it. He’s my world, and I’m not his, even though he hasn’t forgot me, when he sees me, he’s more interested in me making friends with the others.
As soon as we got off the train, I saw my curly haired best friend standing on the platform. As soon as he turned and saw us, his face broke out into a massive grin. I dropped my heavy suitcase and ran towards him, jumping into his arms. “I missed you so much Heather, you don’t even know how much!” I smiled looking into his perfect green eyes “I missed you too Styles, but please put me down!” he laughed and put me down “you’re so light I forgot that I was even lifting you!” I looked at him, my eyebrows raised, “I know that’s a lie!” I realised that the others weren’t with me, I spun around to see all 3 of them staring at me and Harry, grinning like Cheshire cats. It then came to me that this would be the first time they had ever see Harry in real life. I told Harry to wait a second and walked over to them. “Come you 3, I’ll introduce you to him!” Amaia grabbed my elbow and stopped me “Heather, were you this nervous when you met one direction for the first time? I laughed “no…” but I was a nervous wreck.
I looked up at the door of the bungalow. This is the bungalow I know so well! Why am I so nervous? I asked myself. Anne knocked on the door and smiled at me “they’re all such lovely boys, you’ll fit in with them fine, you have nothing to worry about” She gave me a big hug and left in her car. Nobody answered the door, I knocked on the door again, starting to panic a little bit. Someone answered the door, a boy, but it wasn’t Harry. This boy looks the same age as Harry, but he has blonde hair and blue eyes, “Hello, you must be Heather, Harry’s not here at the minute, he’s gone to the shop with the other boys, come on in though” I smiled and walked through the door into the living room. I noticed he had a gorgeous Irish accent. I sat down on the sofa next to him “what took you so long to answer the door?” I asked, trying to make friends with him. “Oh I was asleep, but I’m here now!” he said grinning, “oh right, you’re a sleeper then?” I asked laughing “I sure am! I could sleep for the UK quite happily!” I laughed, “same, sleep is the best, can I ask a question?” he smiled, “sure, any friend of Harry’s is a friend of mine!” “urm, what’s your name” he laughed, “I didn’t tell you did I! well I’m Niall, Niall Horan” I smiled “woah, nice name, what part of Ireland?” “Mullingar, near Dublin.” I smiled, “I love it there, my friend took me there once,” He looked up at me, looking me straight in the eyes, “You should come over with Harry and the others when we go on our first tour,” I laughed “planning ahead!” he grinned “yeaah buddie, you’ve got to though!” Suddenly the door burst open and Harry came rushing in. That was the first time I had ever spoken to Niall, and somehow I knew we were going to be great friends.
I walked with the not so calm girls towards Harry. He grinned at them all “Hiya girls! Nice to finally meet you all!” and he grabbed all 3 of them into a massive bear hug. As soon as he let go, they all looked like they were going to pass out! I was standing near them, nearly wetting myself with laughter. We all got into the boys people carrier and went for Harry’s and Louis’ flat. I kept looking at my friends, they were always trying to find a sneaky way to look at Harry. Me and Harry were having a full catch up, even though I did see him a month ago, so much had changed. Harry looked me right in the eyes, and said “Please don’t listen to the haters Hev, I know they’re tweeting you abuse, but it’s because they think you’re my girlfriend!” I couldn’t help but laugh “EW! But it’s not the haters, I can handle them, it’s the people that use me to get to you!” “I know, just please don’t give up on us?” I laughed even harder than the first time, “Harry, you may smell, and you’re a freak, but I’d never not be friends with you! You mean too much to me!” He grinned a wide grin “Good!” the car parked up, right next to Louis porch and we all got out of the car. All of the girls were wide eyed staring at Harry’s block of flats. “Harry, you live here!” Hannah said, the mouth in the shape of an O. “well, if I didn’t, we wouldn’t be here, would we” he winked at Hannah and walked away, hitting the butt of Louis porch as he went. We stepped into the flat and I was suddenly surrounded by 4 boys, all of them trying to join the group hug the other started. Next thing I knew I was on the floor with 4 boys on top of me, I wondered what my mum would think. I know what’s coming next, I thought to myself as Harry suddenly realised what was happening. “LOOK OUUUUT!” Harry shouted and he jumped onto the pile, making Niall burp or fart, I wasn’t sure. “NIALL EW EW EW! STAY AWAY FROM MY EAR!” Make that Niall burped right into Zayns ear. “Sorry! Ate too much for breakfast mate!” I laughed “Yeah buddie, that’s the Niall I love and missed!” I shouted from the bottom of the pile. “You hear that! Hev missed me and loves me! I’m her favourite! In your faces!” Then I heard two familiar laughs, “I’m sure she didn’t mean it like that Nialler!” “Don’t worry Liam babe, you’ll always be my favourite!” I laughed, “El, Dani! I’ll be up in a second so I can give you a proper hello” “Missed you long time baby G!” I heard Eleanor call “I missed you to beaut! Oh babes! Nice shoes!” she laughed, “they’re Louis TOMS!” I felt the pile move a bit “You’re wearing MY TOMS! Did I say you could!?” Louis leaped up from the pile, allowing me to breathe, and he chased Eleanor around, in a joke way of course, trying to get the shoes off her feet. “Ew, love….” Zayn said as he sat down on the sofa. Then he noticed the ‘newbies’ as they call new people. He stood up immediately. “Well hello beautiful ladies, I am Zayn Malik, you must be Antonia, Hannah and Amaia am I correct?” “H….” they all said, Zayn looked at me, I laughed at him and gave him a massive hug, I hadn’t seen him in a while. “DJ Malik whacking out the tunes tonight?” I asked “HELL TO THE YEAH! And if the table breaks, I won’t even care…” I laughed and sat next to Niall on the sofa, I rested my head on his shoulder . He looked at me and sighed, “what do you want, Missy?” I looked up at him, our eyes connected “I want Nandos,” he put his arm around me, “why are we not married?” I sat up “I do not know, let’s go get married now sugar!” I said sarcastically. He lifted me up into a Bridal carry, and shouted “COME ON GUYS, WE’RE CELEBRATING AT NANDOOOS!” everyone got their coats, but Niall still had me in his arms.
He took me to his flat and threw me on the bed, taking his top off. “Niall, NO!” He then threw a Nandos top at me “no Heather, not that, put this on, it’s a Nandos jumper, you’d like it” He then pulled out a pink polo top for him to wear and I ran off to his bathroom to get changed. I clicked the lock and walked out, changed into Nialls white Nandos top. I saw him sat on the sofa, so I sat down next to him. He turned to face me, he looked like he wanted to speak but he didn’t say anything. Then he spoke “heather, I need to ask you something important…” I smiled, but inside I was confused “go for it Nialler, ask me anything!” he looked me straight in the eyes, “how long have you been in love with Harry?”
