Harry's PoV:

I walked down the west wing hallways to get to my office, passing by junior staffers running around like chickens with their heads cut off.

When I reached my office, my assistant who was sitting at his desk saw me coming and hurried to open my door for me.

"Thanks." I said before going to sit behind my desk, turning on my computer.

The guy had already made coffee so I grabbed the mug Mila had made for me and filled it with caffeine before taking a drink.

I then got to work, and about twenty minutes in my phone rang.

"Styles." I answered.

"Hey it's me." Emma's voice came through the line.

"What do you need?" I asked her.

"I just wanted to let you know that we're not going to the stables with Mila today and you won't have to pick her up. She has a fever so she's staying here."

"Okay."

"Alright, see you later." She said before hanging up.

I shook my head at the thought of Mila being sick before returning to the file I had in my hand, reading the report written up by one of the new secret service agents I had hired.

The morning continued on as I read file after file, but then something out of the corner of my eye made me look up to see Mila strolling into my office, her curly hair messy and her hand dragging her blanket behind her.

"Hey you, I heard you weren't feeling well." I said as she came up to me and crawled up into
my lap where she sat down.

She shook her head no.

I then placed my hand on her forehead to see it was very warm.

"Why aren't you in bed?"

"I'm by myself." She said and I nodded.

I reached over for my phone and dialled the extension for the First Ladies office.

"This is Kelly."

"Hey Kelly is Mrs. Winston in? This is Harry Styles."

"Oh, hello Harry. She is but she's taking a call right now but if you have a message for her I can tell her as soon as she gets off the phone."

"Yeah, can you tell her that Mila came down to my office so in case she's looking for her she knows where she is."

"Do you want me to send someone to come get her?"

"No she's fine, I'll watch her."

"Okay then, i'll let her know. Thank you, Harry."

I set my phone back on the receiver, Mila then turning so she could lean against me, tucking her thumb in her mouth.

"Do you want to stay in here?" I asked her and she nodded her little head.

I then went to call out for my assistant but remembered I didn't know his name.
