Kendall Jenner & Harry Styles

Huh. Most of us assumed it was probably nothing more than a brief fling -- but after Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner's recent late night rendezvous, it's SO obvious that the two of them are more than just buddies.

At around midnight on Tuesday, they were spotted making a run to Rite-Aid in Beverly Hills (I don't even want to speculate on what they were buying) -- and they drove away in Kendall's car with Harry behind the wheel.

According to a source who talked to E! News, "They were smiling. They seemed happy together. They looked like they were together, but they could just be friends."

Yeah. I'm not buying the friend thing for one second.

Especially considering that Harry is supposedly telling friends he's in love with Kendall.

I know. I about fell over too when I heard that. Though I'm not sure if it was out of shock or pure jealousy. (Cougar alert.)

He hasn't exactly been one for settling down with one woman for long periods of time in the past -- but maybe Kendall is just the gal Harry needs to tie him down ... at least for a while?

Hear me out. He strikes me as the type who needs a confident girl who is sure of herself -- and who won't freak out and get all needy and clingy when he goes out on tour. And for whatever reason, Kendall seems pretty darn grounded to me in that sense ... like she's not the type to sit in her room crying over her boyfriend being out of town for months on end.

I didn't see the two of them working out when they intially got together, but now it's starting to make sense to me. Who knows -- they could very well be the next big thing -- though it will be interesting to see how often they wind up getting together once One Direction leaves for their 2014 tour. If Kendall turns up at a few stadiums -- look out, ladies. Harry Styles may officially be off the market at that point. (Sniff, sniff.)

What do you think attracted Harry to Kendall?
