Chapter One(A/N This whole story will be written from Nikki's point of view unless I state otherwise)
"Mommy!!!!!! Where are you????" Said Gem.
"I'm right here sweetie what do you want?" I said
"Mommy, where is daddy? All of the other girls have one."
I feel so dumbfounded that she asked this question. I have worried ever since the day Gem was born how I would answer this exact question. I knew I couldn't lie to her, I can't tell a lie especially to my own daughter. So after thinking about it for another minute I said as Gem stood there next to poster of One Direction, the band she loved so much I decided I needed to tell her the truth. So I said " That's your daddy, I could never lie to you."
What in the world did I just do? I want her to live a normal life, away from paparazzi watching her every move. Hopefully she'll forget this by tomorrow.... I don't want her to grow up knowing that her father is one of the most famous people in the world while her every move is being watched by the whole world.
I also don't want Harry's life to be ruined. He is the only person on this planet that I can honestly say I've ever loved and probably the only person on this planet I will ever love and this will ruin his career forever in One Direction. He's just starting out too, which makes things worse. One Direction has only been around as long as Gem has, and that's 2 and a half years. I can't let this little child ruin Harry and One Direction's millions of fans while I can just raise this child myself with no drama whatsoever. As I ponder this for a while, Gem says "Is he really my daddy?"
So I reply " Yes Gemma he really is, but you might not be able to meet him alright?"
I regret saying this as I watch Gem burst into tears. While Gem is sobbing her eyes out, my phone begins to ring. As my phone rigs Gem stops crying because my ringtone is One Direction's song Magic, Gem's favorite song. I look at the caller ID to see who is calling. I am so shocked by the name my IPhone reads. Harry Styles is calling me.
I am shocked, amazed, dumbfounded, and scared all at the same time. Why is Harry calling me? He hasn't called me in almost a year. He called me all of the time after we broke up to see what I was up to and how things were going and whatnot. We were good friends for about a year and half after we split because of my classes and his career. Also, now of all times, as soon as I tell Gem who her father is. I decide to answer my phone.
"Hello Harry." I say as calmly as I can.
"Hello Nikki, I haven't talked to you in a while and I wanted to see what you were up to." He says
"I'm alright, thanks for asking. How have you been?" I say
"Look lets cut right to the chase, I was playing truth or dare with the boys and I told Louis to tell me the biggest thing he has been hiding from me and he said that I was the father of the baby of one of the girls that was either in a relationship with or had a fling with but he didn't specify. For some reason the name Nikki Lloyd was he first thing to come to my mind, so I felt as if I needed to call you. Nikki, do you have a child that I am the father of?" Harry said."
I have no idea what to say, feel, or think at this moment. I feel mad because Louis told Harry my secret that I trusted him with, I feel happy because now he might be able to play a role in Gem's life, and I feel sad because I think his singing career was just ruined. I right now am just standing, quietly, with a shocked look on my face. Before I even think about it, I automatically say: "Yes Harry, you are the father of my child. Her name is Gemma Nicola Lloyd and she is 2 and a half years old."
What have I just done?
