5. Sunday


*Harry's POV*

I woke up to find Tessa still in my arms, it was about eleven in the morning. I smiled, she was so beautiful when she sleeps. I felt horrible for Tessa because of what Nico did to her. How he could ever hurt someone as amazing as her blows my mind. She's smart, funny, bubbly and outgoing, strong, and without a doubt the most beautiful girl I ever laid my eyes on. And here she was, sleeping peacefully in my arms.

Take her out today, go on a picnic with her. I thought. That's when I felt her open her eyes.

“Hi,” she smiled and looked up at me. I smiled back.

“Hi,” I said.

“How long have I been asleep?” Tessa still sounded tired.

“It's about eleven right now. Let's go get breakfast, yeah?” We began to get up.

“Okay,” she smiled, “what are you doing today?”

Well uhmm..” How should I put this? Should I just ask her out or was it too soon? Just get it over with..

“Yeah..?” She asked.

“So I was thinking about how Nico treated you like rubbish. And I thought that you should be with someone who would really care about you.” I breathed in and looked at her, “so I was wondering if I could take you out today.”

Like a date?” She was so cute.

“Yeah,” I said.

“Okay,” she smiled.


“Yeah,” she laughed and took my hand. We walked down the stairs and the kitchen was empty. I could feel myself blushing a bit because she took my hand. She turned around and saw me blushing and she smiled at me. “What? Is this the first time a girl held your hand before?” She chucked.

“No but this is the first time a beautiful girl held my hand,” that just slipped out. Tessa seemed to think it was cute though because she blushed too. “So uhh I can really only make one breakfast well. So we're having eggs,” I walked over to the fridge and Tessa walked over to the table.

“That's fine. What did you want to do today?” She asked.

“I was thinking we could go on a picnic, but if you don't want to we can do something else.” I said, cracking the first of five eggs onto the pan.

“No a picnic sounds great. Could we bring a soccer ball?” I looked over at her.

“You play football?” She laughed at me.

“I've been playing since I was four but I quit at the end of this year. Didn't I tell you that?” She asked.

“No!” All of the sudden Tessa became ten times more hot than she already was. We just kept laughing and I knew that I couldn't wait for the rest of this day.


*Tessa's POV*

Harry kept me laughing the whole morning at breakfast. I kept mocking his accent while he made fun of my hair. It was knotty and frizzy and it looked terrible. I told him I needed to go home and get ready for our date, so he dropped me off home after we finished breakfast.

“I'll pick you up at 2,” He said, kissing me on the cheek. I giggled and shut the door.


Part of me was still upset about Nico, and I knew that I would be upset about it for a long time. After all, he's been my best friend for over three years, and without him, I would probably be dead right now. And I did love him with every inch of me. I guess that's what made it so hard to let him go... But with a bad ending comes a new beginning, and I think Harry was that new beginning.


I pulled out jean shorts, my black converse, and a blue belly shirt from my closet. The shirt had little white hearts on it and it looked like something a cowgirl would wear, I loved this shirt. My straightener was going to be ready in about two minutes so I quickly got dressed. Once that was done, I began straightening my hair. And for some reason, I began to sing Wake Me Up by Ed Sheeran. Don't ask me why, but I just sing at random times. I missed singing everyday and sitting at the piano, writing my own music. It offered me a sense of peace that's so difficult to describe. When your fingers are gliding across the keys, I seem to forget about everything else...


It took about twenty minutes to get my hair to be pin straight, and another fifteen to do my make up. Even after I was finished getting ready, I wasn't satisfied with what I looked like. But then again, I never was... I began to wonder what Harry saw in me.


*Harry's POV*

After dropping Tessa off, I drove into town and bought her a red rose. I really hoped that wasn't too cheesy. This date was important to me and I wanna impress her. And for everything she's been through these past two weeks, Tessa deserves to take her mind off things for a day.


It was almost 2 o'clock so I decided to start driving back to the house and get stuff for a picnic. If I could find everything quickly, I should get to Tessa's with five minutes to spare. I was nervous... What if she doesn't have the same feelings for me? Should I have waited to ask her out? And what will the fans think when they see me out with her? There have been a few articles already saying that I had my eyes on her. Some fans left nasty comments underneath it, so I'm hoping Tessa didn't see it.


After our date though, it will be impossible for her to not see all that kind of stuff. Unfortunately, her twitter will be full of hate and death threats, there will be cameras following her and I, whether we were together or not. I frowned and pulled into my driveway. All the lights inside were on and I could see Louis and Zayn in the living room running around. When I walked in, the house was an absolute mess.

“This place was clean when I left this morning!” I said.

“Well yeah but Lou and I are in a war and we needed to use things for bombs.” Zayn stopped running and looked at me to explain. I laughed and started packing some food in a cooler and grabbed a blanket.

“I'm not cleaning it up mate,” I said.

“Where are you going?” Louis asked.

“I'm taking Tessa out-” he cut me off.

“AWE HARRY! THAT'S ADORABLE!” Lou yelled and laughed at me. I couldn't help but laugh too.

“Shut it!” I said. It was 1:57 so I decided to leave. I grabbed my keys again and walked out the door. It wasn't before Zayn quickly lie down on his stomach in front of me, I was this close to falling on my face. They all laughed and I shut the door and walked to my car. I pulled out my phone and texted Tessa while opening my car door:

Leaving now babe:)


It wasn't long before I pulled up to her house. It was a small, white two story house with yellow shudders. The beach was to the right of her house, you could see it from the house if you looked through the right window. The house was as adorable as she was.

I got out of the car, the red rose in hand, and walked to the door. Seconds after I knocked it, I heard her yell from inside,

“It's open!” I opened the door and yelled in to her.

“Babe it's Harry! Are you almost ready to go?” I asked.

“Yeah just give me one more second! Come in and make yourself at home!” She said. I took a step inside and looked around. Once you stepped inside you were in the living room, behind that to the left was the kitchen, on the right was a dining room. The walls varied in color from room to room. The living room was a light shade of brown, while the kitchen was white and the dining room was a light yellow.


I was just about to sit on the couch when I saw a collage of pictures on the wall just above the TV on the left side of the living room. I walked over to it and started looking at the pictures. There were pictures of Tessa with her friends, some of her and Nico. She had pictures of her playing soccer as well, but there was one breath taking photo that caught my eye. It was a picture of her on the beach. She was wearing a white bikini and her body was facing the right, but she flashed a beautiful white smile to the camera. The wind was blowing her hair back from her face. She is so beautiful...

“Are you ready?” I heard her come downstairs. I turned around and saw the same beautiful smile I saw in the picture.

“Yeah, uhmm I got this for you.” I awkwardly smiled and handed her the rose. I should've got her more than one, one was stupid.

“Awe Harry it's beautiful! Thank you,” She smiled at me and set the rose down on a table. “So where are we going?” I took her hand and walked her out the door and to my car.

“On a picnic.” I said.

“No I meant like where are we going for the picnic?” She giggled and I opened to the door to the passenger door, she got inside. I shut her door and walked over to the drivers side.

“Oh,” I laughed. “Uhm I don't really know, to be honest. I just wanted to take you on a picnic.”

“Well luckily for you, I know exactly where we can go.” Tessa smiled and looked over at me. I took her hand and pulled out of her driveway.

“Yeah? Where?” I asked.

“Make a left here and keep going straight.” She said. “Are you nervous?”

“No,” I lied. “Why?”

“Because your hand is all sweaty, and your hand has never been sweaty until now.” She laughed. Oh my god that is so embarrassing. She probably thinks you're gross right now... I took my hand out of hers and wiped it on my jeans.

“Okay, so I'm a little nervous.” I blushed.

“Why?” She giggled and took my hand again. I breathed a sigh of relief.

“I dunno,” was all I could say. She blushed and looked out the window.

“Make a right and then an immediate left, and then we're here.” She said.


I followed her directions and pulled into a parking lot. Trees were everywhere and there was a small hill that had a lake at the bottom of it. The grass here was so green and the sky was blue and filled with clouds. It was like a dream here... I opened Tessa's door and got the picnic stuff out from the backseat.

“Ready?” She asked.

I took her hand and smiled, “ready.”


*Tessa's POV*


Our date was so perfect. By 3:30 the park was pretty full, but not too crowded. Harry and I didn't pay attention to the people though. We were too caught up in each other to worry about anything else. Harry and I had so much fun! We played tag, he always did better than me because he was faster than I was. But I beat him in soccer 3 games to 2! It was cute, every time I scored a goal he would pick me up over his shoulder and threaten to throw me into the lake. When I beat him in the final game, he brought my face inches away from the water, I was so scared. We rolled up and down the hill and saw who could get farther up in the trees. Then we ate our food and he held me in his lap, I had butterflies the whole time! At night, when it was like 9 o'clock, it got dark out. Harry took out his phone and he played “Give Love A Try” by Nick Jonas (because he knows how much I love that song) and we danced to it. After that we went onto the blanket and looked at the stars, and we just talked for like an hour. If you ask me what we talked about, I would tell you everything in the entire universe.


Now, we just pulled up into my driveway. He had me laughing the whole car ride, I never really noticed how funny Harry was until now. Either way, I couldn't stop smiling. When we got out of the car, he put his arm around my waist and walked me to the door.

“I had a lot of fun today Harry,” I said.

“I wish I could say the same.” He said sarcastically and smiled.

“Shut up!” He chuckled, “you had a good time!” I said.

“I did,” he replied.

“Thank you,” I said, staring into his beautiful green eyes..

“For what?” Harry was looking into my eyes too, chills went down my spine.

“For being so incredibly nice to me. You're the first guy to really make me happy, and that means a lot to me.” I said. Harry pulled me in closer to him and whispered on my lips:

“Pinky promise me you'll kiss me back.” I took his pinky in mine and he softly pressed his lips to mine. Within the first second our lips met, I felt something amazing, something completely one of a kind. He kissed me again and it was like electricity was sent through my entire body. I felt everything from passion to excitement, from love to tenderness. Warmth and comfort. But if I had to describe the kiss in one word, it would be home. Kissing Harry felt like coming home, even when you don't know where your home is. Harry's lips became my home.


After what seemed like a lifetime, Harry pulled away from me. A big goofy smile covered his face. I could feel the same expression on mine.

“I'll call you tomorrow then,” he said.

“Okay,” I bit my lip and he turned to walk away. As I was walking inside, I could feel his eyes on me.


I shut my door, a huge smile covered my entire face. “Oh my god!” I said.


*Harry's POV*


After watching Tessa walk inside and getting into my car, I could only say one thing: “Oh my god!”
