#3:“I was just kinda hoping you’d y’know… fall in love with me.”
#13:”It’s okay, you don’t have to love me back.”
Niall couldn’t help the laugh that escaped his lips once Harry told him what had happened hours before. Harry starred at his friend with the most unamused expression, that only increased Niall’s laugher, the Irishman didn’t mean to laugh but the situation itself was something out of those corny romance movies that his bird watched on a daily. Wiping the tears that had escaped he let out a deep breathe before the words finally escaped his lips.
“Let me get this straight mate, so you and Y/N were having lunch and you just said ‘I was just kinda hoping you’d y’know fall in love with me?” Niall asked with a raised eyebrow as Ella walked in the room with a raised eyebrow.
“Who’s falling in love with whom?” She asked as Harry groaned knowing the last person he wanted to know about his mess up was her. He loved Ella, and thanked her everyday for waltzing into Niall’s life which brought Y/N into his. But having her know, meant she’d try ad prey information for Y/N and that was the last thing he needed right now.
“Harry over here petal,
likes love’s Y/N.” Niall stated before taken a sip of his beer and looking at his fiancé. Rolling her eyes she sat down besides Harry and gave him a soft hug. She of course had already known what happened, seeing as Y/N had called her a nerves wreak.
“Hey, it’s alright.” She smiled as Harry looked at her with a slight worried expression. She wasn’t dim and she knew the Englishman had feelings for her friend, but she also knew her friend had feelings for him. They both simply needed a little push, and Niall was certainly not the one to do it. “Just talk to her H..” She added as they both watched his eyes widen.
“Not possible.” He stated shaking his head. “Don’t even know how to start a proper conversation after that mess up..” He finished with a sigh and his shoulder’s dropped.
“Well too bad Styles…” She huffed as she stood up from her seat besides him. Placing her hand on her hips she looked at him with a smirk. “Cause you’re staying for dinner and she’s coming over for dinner.”
That’s how long he had before he had to find some way to lose his nerves and some way to make right the mistake he had made. He tried busying himself by helping Ella make dinner only to resulting in him almost cutting his finger and her pushing him out of her kitchen. Niall had offered him a beer as he sat down besides with a long sigh and a still busy mind.
Till dinner and till perhaps the end of his live as he knew it. Niall had assured him things wouldn’t be as bad and he just needed to get over this insane fear and just go along with it. Harry rejected every single idea he had. Niall was a smart man, and Harry knew that. All he wanted to do was help, but Harry was way to nervous to even allow the sudden ideas being fed to him make a dent in his brain.
She sat across from him, as Niall and Ella were in the dinning room getting the table ready. All that was heard the soft voices of the other couple. They were trying their best to busy themselves as long as possible for them to have the most needed conversation possible.
”It’s okay, you don’t have to love me back.” Harry spoke as she looked up at him with a soft chuckle as she nodded her head.
“You’re nervous..” She pointed out as a soft chuckle escaped his lips as he nodded his head.
“How could I not be, basically told you I’m in love with you before..” he stated as he looked down and her cheeks flushed. Ella’s words from earlier repeated themselves in her mind as she took a deep breathe.
“You ever let me answer you before..”
“Cause I already know the answer..”
“But do you really..”
“I believe so, yes.”
“Well you don’t Harry. ‘Cause if you stood around and waited you would’ve know I’m helpless in love with you too.”
