Chapter 16

***Claudia's POV***

The spoon Harry had been holding clattered to the ground as I stared in shock at Louis and who I think was his girlfriend- What was her name again? Elouise?

Alright, don't make this any more awkward than it already is, I told myself.

I walked over to where the girl was standing next to Louis, "Hi! I'm Claudia," I said to the girl, holding out my hand.

She shook it and said, "I'm Eleanor!" Oh, that's what it was. That's cute, he called her Ellie when he mentioned her earlier. Her smile changed to a smirk, "It's good to know you won't be stealing Louis from me anytime soon," Ooh, she was evil. I liked her.

I laughed, "Not very likely. He's more of my partner in crime."

"Crime meaning...," She asked warily.

Louis showed her the picture of the 4 angry guys at his door this morning, and she laughed. She tilted her head back when she laughed, making her long, brown hair flow out behind her. She was very pretty- I could see why she was a model.

"Oh my gosh, I wanna see your room! C'mon!" She grabbed me by the wrist and dragged me upstairs as I grabbed a bagel from the counter and took a bite from it. Wow, that girl had a lot of energy! She was definitely perfect for Louis.

I opened the door to my room, and she pulled me inside and closed the door after us. She sat down on my bed, pulling me with her.

"Spill," She said.

"There's nothing to spill," I said, avoiding her gaze.

"Girl, I just walked into my boyfriend's kitchen to find you kissing a member of a world famous band, and it didn't look like the first time you've kissed him, either! What do you mean there's nothing to spill?!'

"Well, what do you want to know?" I relented.



"Who are you, exactly?"


"I know that, silly! Like, how you know the boys and stuff."

Ohhh, "I'm Zayn Malik's sister."

"Oh! That's so cool!"

"Not really," I said, and told her my story, all about what had happened when Zayn left for the X-Factor. I told her everything that had happened up until now. I don't know why- I mean, seriously, we had just met! But I had a feeling that she was going to be in my life for a long time, so I might as well let her know everything now. I was getting better at telling my story- I didn't even cry. Probably because everything is better now, even better than before, maybe.

When I was done, she pulled me into a hug, "Well, what matters is that you're making a comeback, right?"

I nodded, "I guess so... But you can't tell anyone about Harry and I, okay? Zayn would be furious."

"Okay, but if you ever need to talk, I'm here."

"Thanks," I said, hugging her.

"Give me your phone, and I'll put my number in!"

" phone's not that sort of thing..."

"What do you mean?"

I went over to my purse and pulled out the Firefly, and brought it over to El.

"What's this? A walkie-talkie?"

"No. I wish.-"

"I WISH! HAHAHA!" Wow, she really was destined to be with Louis forever.

"This is my phone."

"This is your WHAT?!"

"It's called a Firefly. It costs $10 a month, so it sort of fits into our price range. It can call 911, my mum, my sister Ivy June, and my best friend Abby's mum."

Eleanor grabbed my wrist again, and pulled me towards the door. The door opens inward, and when she opened the door, 5 boys fell into my room.

"Really boys? Again?" I said.

"LOUIIIS!" Eleanor screamed, tackling him as he tried to get up, "We need to go shopping for Claud, NOW!!!"

"I KNOW RIGHT?!" He screamed back, "She has like NO clothes!"

"WHAT?!" She screeched, running into my room, and coming back a moment later, "YOU'RE RIGHT! But show them your phone, Claud!"

I reluctantly pulled out my 'phone', and handed it to Zayn.

"Is this the one that's really cheap and can call 3 people and 911? he asked.


"TO THE MALL!" Louis screamed, letting El hop on his back and running down the hall, pretty fast actually.

***Harry's POV*** (Earlier)

As Claudia headed upstairs with Eleanor, it gave me a minute to think about what had just happened with Claud. Two things were obvious- 1. I wanted her to be mine. 2. I was going to get her.

"Harry? Harry! HARRY!" Louis was trying to get my attention.


He sighed, " I asked you what happened with Claudia?"

There was no point in trying to deny it with Lou, "Um, well, we both like each other..."


"I, uh, really really like her. More than any other girl. Ever."

"AWW! Hazza's in lo-ove!"

"Pff. No. We're just friends," Just because there was no point in trying to deny it didn't mean I wasn't gonna try.

"On what planet do you make out with your friends?"

"I did not make out with her!"

"That didn't seem like a first kiss."

"It was only the 3rd time we've kissed!"

"Only? You're not even dating!:

"It could've been 4!" I glared at him.

"I said you could try again!"

"Whatever. Just don't tell anyone."

"Okay, let's go upstairs," Louis said. I nodded, and we went up.
