Harrys point of view

*12pm; 3 weeks before the wedding*

‘come on Daph, we have been walking around for hours and every dress shop we pass you just shrug your shoulders and grunt’ I moaned hanging my shoulders low and pulling an irritated face.

‘Hazz, it’s a really important decision… not like finding somewhere to eat, its no tacobell!’ she screamed in my face before she quickly froze.

‘what Daph, what is it?’ I ask softly shaking her.

‘th.. tha… that’s my dress’ she sighed with relief pointing at this elegant dress in the window.

Before I could speak she was already inside asking the lady for her size.  ‘Here you go’ the lady gestured to this small light up room with silk drapes hanging there gracefully.  Daphni took the dress quickly and stepped into the dressing room with massive grin on her face. I think she found her dress.  I waited outside the dressing room for nearly over an hour, the lady walked in with vales and silk material. She kept smiling at me every time she walked in and out.  ‘Daphni, are you done yet?’ I kept groaning but she kept not replying.  ‘alright, alright, im coming out now but no laughing or anything mean… I think this is the one’ she spoke softly.

‘I promise I wont’ I lied being prepared to make fun of anything I can possible but then it happened… Daphni walked out of the dressing room, smiling shyly and looking stunning. I honestly thought she was glowing, I felt my heart pick up speed and my palms started to sweat. I felt my cheeks redden when I realized I was standing there staring, not saying anything and just staring.

‘Haz…’ Daph walked closer towards me and clicked her fingers infront of my face.  ‘um.. look angelic’ I froze after I spoke those words. Angelic? Why would I say angelic?  ‘aw, your so sweet’ she hugged me tightly before kissing me on the cheek.  ‘no really Daphni, you look beautiful’ I smiled widely before placing my hand on her cheek and pushing the hair out of her eyes.  ‘oh you guys are so sweet, by far the cutest couple I’ve seen today… but isn’t it bad luck if the groom sees the bride in the wedding dress’ the lady walked in and Daphni and I couldn’t separate fast enough.  ‘we are not getting married’ Daphni muffled dashing back into the dressing room.   ‘oh sorry’ the shop keeper walked out of the suite head down.   

‘Daphni, are you alright?’ I asked through the curtains.  ‘No Harry, im not alright… please stop talking to me while I’m getting changed’ she snapped at me. She was snapping at me a lot lately. ‘what did I do wrong?’ I asked immediately feeling guilty. she stormed out of the dressing room, barging past me.  ‘Daph, please…’ I followed closely behind her as she reached the counter.  ‘I don’t want to do this now Harry’ she passed the girl the money and received her wedding dress in a black suit bag.  ‘then when Daphni? Because I cant make it up to you if you don’t tell me what I did wrong?’ I grabbed her by the shoulders and spun her around to face me. She had tears running down her face and that made me even madder at myself then I already was.   

‘Daphni, what did I do?’ I repeatedly asked.

‘Haz, SHE THOUGHT WE WERE GETTING MARRIED!’ she screamed in my face before looking at me frustrated.

‘Yes, is that a problem?’ I asked confused.

‘Harry, come on…’ she waved her arms in the air and I began to laugh.  ‘haha, do you even know what you look like right now’ I grabbed my stomach for support as I laughed harder.  ‘Haz, be serious’ she moaned by I could see the smirk on the sides of her mouth.

‘No, serious is boring… Daph, so many people have mistaken us for a couple for years, I don’t understand why is so bad now’ I asked resting my hand on her shoulder.

‘BECAUSE THEY WERENT MISTAKING US FOR A COUPLE, AN ORDINARY COUPLE, WE LOOK LIKE WE ARE GOING TO GET MARRIED’ she shook my hand off her shoulder and began to look regretful. ‘im sorry for yelling Harry, but I hate when people think we are a couple, for some reason it really bugs me’

‘what, am I that repulsive?’ I asked a little broken up inside. Did she really hate the idea of us being together that much.

‘no, its not that… its just we are best friends and I cant imagine us being anything else… I don’t think’

Those words, the words a guy doesn’t want to hear from the women he loves. ‘we are just friends and nothing else’ looks like im stuck in the friend zone.

‘oh, no I completely understand… that’s how I feel as well’ I lied.
