Hey Angel Chapter 3
Tonight, you were going to Harry’s birthday party. He had invited you the other day when you were at the park again with the kids. You and Harry had been hanging out more recently, while Ella and Jackson were having little play dates. You’re starting to develop feelings for him, but you’re not sure how he feels about you. You also don’t know if you’re new job as their stylist would affect the possibility of any relationship.
As soon as Ella’s babysitter shows up, you get into the car and head to the venue that it was being held at. You were nervous because you knew there were going to be other celebrities there and you haven’t exactly been to a lot of parties like this before. It was always hard, having Ella. You get to the venue and walk inside, trying to ignore the camera’s flashing.
When you get inside, you don’t see anyone that you know so far. Great, you sigh to yourself. You decide to walk over to the bar and ordered yourself a drink. Now, that you weren’t breastfeeding anymore, you didn’t have to worry about drinking.
“What can I get for you?” The bar tender smiles.
“Um.. let’s see.” You say looking at the different options. “What’s your specialty drink?”
“Now, that is a secret.” He smirks. “I’m going to let the drink do all the talking.”
He quickly starts pulling different things off the shelves and mixing them together before pouring into a glass. He smirks handing it to you. You take it giving it a small sip.
“What do you think?” He asks.
“I think, it’s okay.” You smirk.
He gasps looking at you. “Okay? Okay?” He says looking over at you. “You have no idea how amazing that drink is.” He says.
You laugh, shaking your head at him.
Harry arrives a few minutes later with Jeff and he immediately starts looking around for you.
“So, where’s this girl you’ve been talking about nonstop.” Jeff smirks.
“She should be here.. somewhere.” He says looking around. “Oh. There she is.. she’s at the bar.”
You were laughing with the bartender and Harry finds himself a little annoyed by that.
“Looks like you better get over there before your face ends up like that.” Jeff smirks.
“Shut up.” He says before walking over towards you.
You’re in the middle of talking with Mike, the bar tender, when someone walks over, wrapping their arm around your shoulders. You look up seeing it’s Harry. You smile hugging him.
“Hey.” You smile as he hugs you tightly.
“Have you been here long?” He asks.
“Just a few minutes.” You say.
He nods. “I want you to meet some people, want to come?” He asks.
“Sure.” you nod. “Bye Mike.” You smile giving him a wave before walking away with Harry.
“You look beautiful.” He smiles.
“Thank you. You don’t look bad yourself.” You smile.
“Oh, so the stylist approves of the outfit choice?” He smirks.
“I do.” You smirk back.
He smiles and soon you both get to a group of friends. He introduces you to everywhere and you notice that there is one person in particular that is giving you a bit of a look before it quickly goes away.
“And this is Abby.” Harry says. “Jackson’s mother. Abby this is Y/N.”
“You must be the Y/N that Jackson is always talking about.” She smiles, but you can tell that it’s forced.
“I guess.” You smile. “He really loves playing with my daughter Ella and he’s so cute.”
“Yeah. He is.” She says.
You’re not sure if it was just you, but you’re really getting the vibe that she doesn’t like you. However, Harry doesn’t seem to acknowledge it.
“So, I heard that you’re going to be the new stylist.” Abby says.
“I am.” You nod taking a sip of your drink.
“Well, I’m sure we’ll be spending lots of time on tour together.” Abby says.
“Yeah. I heard that you were coming.” You nod with a smile.
She nods briefly before ignoring you. A few minutes later, the group of friends leave to go talk with some other people.
“Having fun?” Harry asks.
“Yeah. I am.” you say. “I don’t really get out that much.”
“I understand.” He smiles.
“So, do you feel any older yet?” You smile.
He laughs. “Not really, no.” He says.
“Oh! Speaking of your birthday.” You say. “I have something for you.” You say looking through your purse.
“You didn’t have to get me anything.” He smiles.
“It’s not much.” You say. “Ella and I made you a card.” You smile.
He smiles widely, looking at the card. “This is really amazing. Thank you.” He says giving you another hug.
“You’re welcome.” You smile.
“Would you like to dance?” He asks.
“I would love to.” You smile.
He smiles taking your hand as you both walk down toward the main part of the dance floor. You laugh when you see him starting to “dance.”
“What?” He smirks.
“Those are some great dance moves.” You laugh.
Harry smirks pulling you closer to him. You both dance around together, having a great time for a while, when you both decide to go get something to drink.
“I’m so thirsty.” you laugh grabbing the water and practically chugging it down.
“Yeah. It’s bit hot out there.” He laughs.
All of a sudden, your phone starts to ring. You take it out of your purse and see that it’s the babysitter.
“This is Ella’s babysitter. I’ll be right back.” you say walking outside on the balcony of the club to get away from the noise. “Hey, Jamie.”
“Y/N! I really hate to bother you, but Ella’s been crying for the past hour and she’s running a slight fever.” She says quickly.
“Oh my god. My poor baby.” You sigh. “She may be teething. Have you tried giving her some baby tylenol?” You ask.
“I did, but it’s not soothing her.” She says.
You sigh. “Okay. I’ll be home soon.” you say.
“I’m really sorry.” She says.
“No, it’s not your fault.” you say before hanging up the phone.
“Everything okay?” Harry asks.
“Ella is teething. She’s running a fever and crying” You sigh. “I need to go.”
“Of course.” He says. “Do you want me to go with you?”
“No. I mean, I couldn’t ask you to leave your own party.” You say shaking your head.
“It’s okay. I want to make sure little Ella is okay.” He says.
“Well, um… okay.” You nod.
You both leave, getting in a car, and driving to your house. You go inside, seeing Jamie holding a crying Ella. Your heart sinks as you quickly go over to them.
“Aww my baby.” You say taking her into her arms.
She sniffles snuggling into you. Harry walks over to you and rubs Ella’s back. She looks up at him, babbling.
“I’m sorry again.” Jamie says.
“No, I’m glad that you called.” You say.
She nods and leaves.
“What’s wrong baby?” You whisper to her.
She babbles sniffling to you.
“Let’s get you some teething gel.” you say walking into the kitchen.
“Can you do me a favor and get a bottle out of the fridge and warm it up a bit for me?” You ask Harry.
He nods quickly walking over and grabbing a bottle. He places it in the bottle warmer.
“Um. Can you hold her, while I try to put the gel on her gums?” you ask.
“Course.” He says. “Come here, baby.” He smiles to her, taking her out of your arms. “Look at Mummy.” He says.
You put a little gel on your finger and run it across her gums. She slowly starts to quiet down. You smile kissing her head.
You grab the bottle once it’s done and bring it over to the couch. Harry sits down, still holding Ella and you hand him the bottle. Ella giggles softly taking it from him and sticking it in her mouth. Harry smiles down at her and starts to sing softly to her as she quickly drinks her bottle.
You feel yourself smiling as you watch Harry with Ella. Ella starts slowly close her eyes before falling asleep. After a few minutes, Harry follows you to the nursery, where he puts her down in the crib. You put on her little sound machine and go back into the living room.
“Thank you for coming over.” You say.
“No problem. I’m glad she’s feeling better.” He says.
“Me too.” You smile. “Would you like something to drink?”
“Uh. Sure.” He says.
You nod going to grab some waters and coming back over.
“I’m sorry you had to leave your party though.” you say.
“It’s okay, really.” He says. “I’m getting to spend some time with you.”
You smile a bit. “Do you want to watch a movie or something? Maybe order a pizza. it’s not that late.” you say.
“Pizza sounds great.” He nods. You nod grabbing your phone and calling in an order. “Are you getting excited about tour?”
“I am.” You nod. “But I am a little nervous. I know things are going to be a bit hectic at first until I get in the swing of things. Then there is Ella, I just hope the traveling and stuff is okay for her.”
“I’ll make sure that she’s comfortable and okay.” He smiles.
“You know she’s really taken a liking to you.” You smile. “Usually when she’s crying like that, she doesn’t want anyone else but me to hold her.”
“That makes me happy.” He smiles. “I really like and care for her too.”
You smile taking a sip of water.
“However, Ella isn’t the only one I like and care for…” He whispers looking at you.
“I know what you mean.” You whisper looking up at him.
“Can I kiss you?” He whispers nervously.
You nod smiling a little. Harry leans into kiss you. You respond to the kiss immediately, leaning forward and wrapping your arms around his neck. He wraps his arms around you, pulling you closer to him. After a bit, you both pull away.
“Wow.” You whisper with a small giggle.
Harry smiles. “I know.” He smiles. Harry leans in to kiss you again, but the doorbell rings. “I’ll get it.” He says getting up.
Harry gets the pizza and pays for it, bringing it over to you. You two eat some pizza in silence for a bit.
“Umm. So I think we should talk about… us.” Harry says awkwardly for a bit.
“Yeah.” you nod.
“I like you.. a lot, but I think we should take it slow for a bit.” He says. “I mean for the sake of Jackson and Ella.”
“I agree, but um.. what about me being your stylist.” You whisper. “I technically work for your brand.. for you.. does that complicate things at all?”
“No.” He says shaking his head. “We’re good friends with all of our team, I don’t see being in a relationship with someone to be any different.” He says.
“Well, that’s good to know.” You smile. “But what about Abby?” You say nervously. “She’ll be on tour.”
“Oh, she’ll be fine. I told you. Abby and I are friends, nothing more. She won’t be a problem.” He smiles.
A part of you wanted to believe him about her, but you could help the feeling that you received earlier when you first met her.
“If you’re worried about it, I could talk to her.” He says.
“No. No. If you say that its fine, then I’m sure it is. You know her better than I do.” You say.
Harry nods putting his arm around your shoulder. He pulls you over a bit to kiss your head and you both go back to eat some pizza. Harry stays a few hours more, you both spend that time, talking, kissing, and just being together before he calls a car to come and pick him up.
“I’ll talk to you later.” He smiles.
“I can’t wait.” You blush.
Harry smiles widely leaning in for another kiss before walking out the door and to his car. You smile waving bye to him before shutting the door and heading to bed.
