~11:59 a.m. @ the Park~

I was now at the park. I couldn't wait until Harry arrived. I went to the park bench to sit to wait for Harry, or at least, I was going to, until Harry popped out of nowhere and surprised me.

"Hey Niall, I'm glad you could make it." He then wrapped me up in a hug. Knowing that he was such a warm, happy guy to be around, I wasn't surprised that he would make that move. It was very friendly of him.

"Hey Harry. I can't wait to see what you have to plan for today."

~Harry's P.O.V.~

"Hey Harry. I can't wait to see what you have to plan for today", Niall said. I was really happy to see Niall, since he was a really cool guy. Very down to earth, he is.

"Today, I planned for us to do several things", I said. "First, we will go to Nando's for lunch. Then, I was thinking we could watch a soccer match at my place. Of course, we could get to know each other better. What do you say, Niall?" I was hoping he would like my idea, because I wasn't very sure about what he likes to do.

"Sounds like we'll be having a great day. Can't wait. Now, lead me to the Nando's!"

~At Nando's ~

Niall and I had just arrived at Nando's. Niall was taking a long time to order, until he spoke and said, "Hey Harry, is it okay if I order garlic bread, corn, garlic mashed potatoes, a flame grilled chicken breast, a chocolate cupcake, and Sprite?" My eyes widened at his choices. There wasn't anything wrong with them, but it was just a lot of food.

"Harry, are you there?" I shook away my thoughts and looked at him.

"Niall, don't you think that's a lot of food? "

"Well if you ask me, that's barely half of a meal."

"Niall, that's a 3 course meal."

"I'll pay if you don't want to."

I looked at Niall, and shook my head. "It's okay Niall. I'll pay." I gave him a small grin.

We ordered our food, and sat at the table. Our food arrived quickly, and we began to eat the food. I had ordered the peri-peri chicken, chocolate ice cream, and some Sprite. Neither of us had really said a word to each other, so I decided to initiate a conversation.

"So Niall, where are you from? You don't sound like you are from around here."

"I'm actually from Ireland. Born in Mullingar, to be exact."

"Wow. I'm with an Irish man."

We had such a long conversation, and I really got to know Niall better. I got to learn more about his family. I also learned that he his favorite color is blue, he loved to wear polo shirts, and that he doesn't have a favorite food because he likes everything. That last bit would have been good to know before we went to Nando's. I also got to learned that he was a huge fan of football matches, and spends a lot of time dreaming he could be a football player. I told him my favorite color was red, that I like to wear boots, and that my favorite food to eat is shepherd's pie. When I sad that, a large smile grew on his face.

We were now at my house, and we were looking for movies to watch.

"Niall, I think we should watch Forrest Gump."

"No, we should watch October Sky."


"Because I said so!"

This was gonna be a long night.

° ° °

We eventually settled for October Sky, since Niall was my guest. It was actually a good movie, and I was genuinely surprised by his movie choice. I was moved by the story.

At the end of the movie, I asked Niall, "Hey, who's your favorite actor?"

"My favorite actor? Jake Gyllenhaal of course."

I then asked a fatal question: "Who's that?"

Niall turned and looked at me, with a dissapointed look on his face.

"The main character of this movie. That's why I chose this movie. Catch up Harry."

"Ok, ok. Now that we've watched a movie, do you want to see a few matches that are on?"

"Sure", Niall replied. "But we're probably going to be hungry, so we should order some pizza."

"Yeah, let's order pizza", I said. "What toppings, what size, and how many?"

"Pepperoni, extra large, and as many as possible."


"Okay, okay." He then gave me an adorable smile.

Hold on. Did I just say that he has an adorable smile?

I have never thought that about any guy before. Weird.

"Harry, did you hear me?" I snapped out of my thoughts, once again a part of reality.

"Yeah...well actually, no, I didn't. Could you repeat what you were telling me?"

"Yes, yes I can. I said we should have 2 large pepperoni pizzas. One for you and one for me."

"Okay, that sounds more reasonable."

After ordering the pizza, we just enjoyed the football match we were watching. Unfortunately, this was the perfect opportunity to drift off and think about...Niall.

C'mon, Harry. Stop. Why do you keep thinking about him. He's just your friend right?

I again snapped out of my thoughts when the door bell rang.

Niall said, "I got this one mate. I'll pay since you paid earlier for Nando's."

"Thanks Niall," I replied.

He paid the pizza boy and brought our pizza to the table. We started to eat and enjoy ourselves, talking about whatever came up in the conversation.

At the end of the night, Niall told me he was going to go home. I told him to be safe and that I'd see him on Monday.
