All I can do now is hope for the best
The cab dropped us off at somewhere on 13th street. I think. Honestly, I don't know where we were; I was too busy chatting up Danielle and Eleanor. They were hilarious and had all these amazing stories about the boys and their own adventures.
When we got out, my jaw dropped. Before us stood a glass building with at least 50 stories and a gorgeous modern lobby. It even had a frickin' red carpet roll out towards us and a bellboy in a classic red suit, ready to open the door. I felt a hand take mine and gently pull me towards the front door as I continued to gap like a fish. Once we were inside the lobby, the hand let me go and left me to marvel over the crystal chandelier that I was standing underneath.
"Jordan. Jordan? Jordan!" I then remembered that Jordan was my name so I turned to the owner of the voice: Danielle. She just giggled at my face as I realized my mouth was still open. I quickly closed it and just smiled. "The boys left to their apartment. El and I are going up to our apartment. You want to come? Or do you just want to stand here and have people continue to stare at you?"
I blushed as I walked towards her, causing her to laugh and put her arm around my shoulders. "You know what? I like you Jor!"
I laughed and put my arm around her shoulders too. "And I like you too Dani!" We giggled as we reached the elevator Eleanor was holding for us. I put my arm around Eleanor's shoulders too. "And of course we love you too El!" Dani and I exclaimed together.
She laughed loudly and put her arm around my shoulders. "I hope you don't mind sharing an apartment with two girls for a change."
"Ugh! I'm so relieved! I need some girl time. If I saw one more pair of boxers on the floor, I was going to scream!"
We reached our floor and entered our apartment. It was amazing and very modern styled. "Welcome to your home for the next 3 weeks!"
"I think I just died inside." I whispered happily. "Where are the boys staying?"
Just as I said that, Liam, Niall, Louis and Zayn entered our front door yelling, "Hello neighbours!" I groaned jokingly, making the girls giggle.
"Aww, don't be like that babe!" Zayn exclaimed as he threw me over his shoulders and spun me around.
"Zayn!" I squealed and he threw me down on the couch.
Danielle looked around the room and frowned. "Where's Harry?"
"He went back down to the lobby because he thinks we forgot a suitcase." Louis said. "Personally, I think he's just lost it."
"I haven't lost anything!" A low voice came from the door. "I perfectly sane!"
I scoffed. "Says the boy who actually forgets to put clothes on in the morning!" The group burst into a fit of giggles as everyone settled into the living area.
"I don't forget!" Harry protested. "I choose to not wear them!"
"Not helping your case Harry." I left to go to my room to settle in with my suitcase. Then there was a knock on the main door. I came out of my room and counted heads. No, we were all here. Who could that be?
"Yo Jor! Can you get that for us?"
I rolled my eyes. "Sure," I mumbled, "get the person farthest from the door to open it." When I opened the door, my eyes widened.
A familiar voice said: "Happy early Christmas!"
I squealed in pure delight and I attacked my best friend with a hug. "Oh my gosh, Talia! What are you doing here?"
She laughed and said, "I already said! It's and early Christmas present! Brought to you by Talia Brightline and Harry Styles themselves!"
I whipped around and faced the group who were all standing behind me. I targeted Harry who gave me a sweet smile. I had the widest smile on my face as I jumped on him, giving him the biggest hug. "You, sir, are absolutely amazing!" I screamed into his shoulder. I felt him chuckle and say, "Anytime love."
I blushed madly and let go of him and turned back to Talia. "How long are you here for?"
"Well, my parents gave me enough money to stay for 2-3 weeks. Really, I can stay until you guys move to your next destination."
I jumped up and down in excitement. "This is perfect! Best Christmas present ever!"
I heard an obnoxious cough from behind me. "Would you like to introduce us to your friend Jor?" Niall asked.
"Oh, right! Everybody, this is my bestest friend in the world, Talia. Talia, I assume you already know everyone!" I said with a wink.
She blushed and nodded. That's when everyone ran over to her and engulfed her in a giant group hug. "Welcome to the family Talia!" I heard Louis scream. Eleanor and Danielle gave Talia a personal hug and offered to show her to her room.
I hugged Harry tightly once again. "You're too sweet." I said as I skipped off to Talia's room where all the girls were.
I swear, I nearly exploded. Of course Harry arranged this! Jordan obviously loved the surprise and even though the boys are convinced she doesn't have feelings for Harry, any girl in their right mind would like him now!
How am I supposed to get her a Christmas present that could even compare to Harry's? I ran my hand through my hair and let out a sigh.
"It's okay mate." I heard Liam say behind me as we both walked into the kitchen while the other boys went to the living room to set up Fifa Soccer on Xbox.
"Hm?" I asked, confused.
"What Harry did, it was definitely a surprise, but it was because he accidently intercepted their phone call once. If that was you, you would've done the same thing as him! Any of us would."
"Okay, but if I want to make an impression on her, then the present I give her has to be better!" I reasoned. "But what's more personal and better than bringing her best friend to her for Christmas?"
"Niall, it's not a competition."
"Oh, but it is! Right now, if she had to choose between Harry and I, she wouldn't even give me a second glance! Whether or not Harry feels that way towards Jordan or not, she's bound to like him now!"
"There's bound to be something Niall! Okay, tell me what her favourite colour is."
"What's her biggest fear?"
"Growing up, but Li-"
"Her favourite past time?"
"I think writing songs and taking pictures.."
"There you go Niall! You know her well! Use what you know about her to form the perfect present!"
"How's that-wait." That's when the most perfect plan formed in my head. "Liam, I know what to do. But I need your help."
If this went perfectly as planned, I would make the best present for Jordan. All I can do now is hope for the best.
A/N: Yeah, so a really short chapter, and I'm a terrible person for it to be soooo long since I've updated, but I'm juggling multiple stories on FF and Wattpad plus a job and school. So I'll try to update sooner, but I'm not sure how well that'll work…
