5. Blindfolded

Bess’ POV

After Zayn left from the roof, I went to find Harry but he was on his way to find me and we bumped into each other halfway. He got my arms, so I wouldn’t fall, and I looked up at him, smiling.

‘Don’t ever do that to me again,' he said in total angst, placing his hands on either side of my face. 'If I lose you, I’ll … I’ll just … I don’t know what I might do.’

‘You’ll never lose me,’ I promised.

‘Kissing that fan was a mistake,’ he went on. ‘I was drunk and it meant nothing. Please forgive me.’

‘I already have.'

Harry flashed a wonderful smile. ‘I want to take you home. Right now,’ he said, tempting me with his liquid, bedroom eyes.

‘You have an interview to go to,’ I reminded him.

‘Tonight, then,’ he said, kissing my hand.

I pouted, thinking that tonight was too many hours away from now. ‘Tonight,’ I repeated and Harry gave me a quick peck on the lips before he went back to the band.


After we returned from the honeymoon, I moved in with Harry and the three of us lived there together now.

When I opened the front door, I found a row of lit vanilla candles on the floor. They were leading to the bedroom. I bit my lip, smiling, and dropped my bag, coat and keys on the floor. I quickly took my boots off and followed the candles. The bedroom door was half open and I walked inside. I frowned when I didn’t find Harry in the room. On the bed, there was a plate with two tacos and a bottle of wine.

Harry got my hips from behind, abruptly pulling me against him. ‘Close your eyes, beautiful,’ he whispered in my hair and I giggled, asking, ‘Why?’

‘I want to play a little game with you,’ he replied and I nodded. I swallowed hard when he blindfolded me. Then, he picked me up and took me to bed.

‘Where’s Emma?’ I asked, kneeling on the bed.

‘I took her to your mom for the night,’ he replied, climbing on it too. He knelt opposite me and I could feel the warmth of his body close to mine. ‘Tonight, it’s only you and me,’ he softly said, stroking his fingers on my jaw line. When he kissed my neck, I jolted. He chuckled before he kissed it again and again. He was entertained by his little blindfolding game but I was on edge. Every time his lips touched my skin, I felt as if a tiny electric shock went through me. Not knowing what he'd do next was driving me out of my mind. ‘Open your mouth,’ Harry said and when I did, he brushed a taco over my lips. I got his wrist with both my hands and took a bite out of the taco.

‘Gosh, this is really good,’ I said, chewing. Harry was a great cook. After I swallowed, he grabbed my waist and melted his lips into mine. I guess we’re done with dinner, I thought, and a second later, Harry pushed me down on the mattress, falling on top of me.


Harry’s POV

After they made love, they ate the tacos, they had gotten cold by then, and Bess fell asleep. Harry though stayed up to go through some lyrics he and Zayn had written a while ago. Harry was sitting in bed, leaning against the headboard. He was naked, as always, and the duvet was up to his hipbones. Bess was lying on her stomach beside him, naked too, and was restless in her sleep. She was gripping the duvet and she was mumbling things Harry didn’t understand.

‘No,’ she cried, gripping the duvet tighter. He stroked hair out of her face, wondering what she was dreaming about. ‘Zayn, NO,’ she protested, loud and clear, and a shiver ran through Harry. He furrowed his brow, staring at his wife’s face. Why was Bess dreaming about Zayn? Was something going on between the two of them? And, when? When did that happen? ‘Zayn…’ Bess breathed, letting go of the duvet. She went on sleeping, all calm now.

‘Right,’ Harry said to himself, pissed.


Bess POV

‘I’ve brought lunch,’ I said, placing a tray with 30 sandwiches on the table. It was the boys’ lunch break and as I didn’t want them to eat delivery food all the time, I made them some healthy, homemade sandwiches. I knew all of them would eat at least 2 and Niall of course would eat all the rest.

‘Thanks, Bess,’ Liam and Niall said in unison, grabbing their first one. Louis was holding Emma and was taking pictures with her to send to Eleanor. The two of them were still together and they were going stronger than ever.

I sat on Harry’s lap and ran a hand through his hair. He was very quiet all morning. He was lost in his thoughts. I figured he was probably nervous about their upcoming album. The boys had been writing lyrics like maniacs for the last few months. ‘Aren’t you hungry, baby?’ I asked before I kissed his temple, rubbing his thigh. When he didn’t reply, I called, ‘Harry?’

Harry set his bright green eyes on me. ‘I’m sorry, beautiful, did you ask me something?’

‘What’s wrong with you today?’ I asked, worried now.

Zayn walked in the room and Harry glared. He grabbed a sandwich and sat down on the sofa next to us. He was about to take a big bite out of his sandwich but Harry asked, ‘How’s things between you and Perrie?’

Zayn chuckled before he replied, ‘Fine, mate. We’re off to Switzerland tonight.’

‘It’s their two year anniversary,’ I said, smiling.

Harry looked at me with an unreadable expression on his face. Then, he turned to Zayn, asking, ‘So, everything’s fine between you and Perrie?’

He had stopped him from eating again. ‘Yeah, Haz, everything’s fine,’ Zayn replied. ‘Can I eat now?’

When Harry shrugged, Zayn got up and went where Louis was.

‘Harry, what’s wrong?’ I asked.

‘You talk in your sleep, beautiful,’ Harry told me, serious. ‘That’s what’s wrong.’
