I pull back all forms of confused. "Wha-whu-huh?" Harry lets out a roaring laugh. "But you're drunk! You are drunk." Harry shakes his head." It's not that hard to pretend to be drunk, babe. "But you taste like cherry vodka!" Harry smirks at me. "That's the magic of swigging it around in your mouth." I just look back at Harry dumbfounded. "I knew you were never going to kiss me so why not right?" I cross my arms over my chest. "I hate you Harry." "Well that's ok because I looooooove you." My eyes flicker down to his lips and he licks them. Is it bad that I want him to kiss me again? That I want him to touch me somewhere, anywhere.
"Hey Kim?" My eyes snap back to meet Harrys. "Yes?" Harry responds by kissing me again.
And that's how I spent the wee hours of the morning, making out with my best friend.
"YOU WHAT?" I clamp my hand down on Eleanor's mouth. "Happy birthday hug bug!" Ashton looks at me and Eleanor's weird position but nonetheless he kisses both of our cheeks and gives me a hug. "Thanks Ashy pooh."
I've gotten close to all the boys of 5sos in one short month but me and Ashton have a very awkward and special bond.
Once Ash leaves I slowly uncover Eleanor's mouth. "Keep it down El! I don't want people bombarding me with questions on my birthday!" Eleanor stares back at me with wide eyes. "I can't believe you two made out!" I pretend to pick a piece of lint off of my sweater to stall my response. "Hey lets go to the Ball Pit El!" I grab her arm and lead her to the tiny ball pit in the back of the Chuck E. Cheese.
Since it was mine and the band's birthday, we celebrated it at you guessed it, a place for kids 13 and under. The boys rented the whole thing out for the day since none of us spent time with eachother during our little one week break last week.
"No Kim, no balls." I giggle and El rolls her eyes. "What happened after you two made out?" I roll my eyes at Eleanor once again. "Well I do recall a certain brunette banging on the door telling me to open it up because she forgot her key. Again." "Oh yeah, sorry about that. It won't happen again, scouts honor." I shrug at El and Best Song Ever starts playing. I start dancing goofily to the boys newest hit. The video came out yesterday and everyone went mental, including me. (Marcel and Leeroy were perfect honestly.)
I dance backwards in the direction of the ball pit and El shakes her head. "I'm not done with you Kim!" I reach the edge of the pit and I fall backwards into it. "I think you are!" The words fall from my lips right as I sink into the ball pin. I hear and feel someone enter the ball pit. I open my eyes to see Harry smiling at me. "H-Hey hair bear, wassup?"
I nervously studder my words out. After our early morning rondeau, Harry left and we didn't really discuss our actions or feelings.
Harry walks, more of struggles, to get over to me and pulls me up so I'm facing him. "Just wanted to wish my favorite girl a happy birthday." He leans down to place a soft kiss on my forehead. "Thanks Harry, happy birthday to the band too." Harry scoops me up and drops me into the ball pit in one swift motion. "OUCH HARREH." Harry straddles my waist and begins tickling me with all his might. I laugh and snort and kick and cry with laughter.
This can't be good though, the only time Harry tickles me is when he's nervous about something dealing with me.
He finally stops crushing me and falls into the pit next to me. He grabs my hand and interlocks our fingers. "Hey Kim?" I turn to him and he leans over and gives me a soft kiss on my lips. He pulls away from the lingering kiss and somehow I want more. I want him, I need him. But he's my best friend, so that's crazy right?
"Meet me in my room tonight at midnight Kim, we need to talk." With that he places one more kiss on my lips before everyone starts singing happy birthday. Me and Harry get out of the pit to see Lou, hairstylist Lou, pushing a large cake out. "BIRTHDAYSTAGRAM." I face palm myself at Harry's ridiculous statement as he brings out his phone. I blow out my candles making one wish, a wish I can't stop thinking about whilst I eat my cake .
I wish everything will be ok between me and Harry.
