Harry and I left taco bell after getting kicked out for playing tag. He decided he wanted to take me somewhere else.
“Harry, its 11 oclock… what the hell are we going to do now?”
“Join a street gang,” He laughed and looked up at my shocked face, “I’m kidding! Just hush and you’ll see.”
I sighed and sat back. We drove for a half hour until we arrived at this secluded park. Harry hopped out and sprinted to my side of the car and opened my door. I stepped out and took a deep breath, inhaling the scents of pine, leaves, and grass. I closed my eyes and had another flashback.
Harry and I were having a picnic. A late supper. He “kidnapped” me from Mor Mors house at midnight with a picnic basket and a blanket.
“Harry… why are we going on a picnic at midnight?”
“Because I just got off of work and I won’t be able to see you for another 2 months. So… I figured I should steal you.” He smiled and I laughed.
We pulled up to a park, alone, dark and completely serene. He grabbed me out of the car, threw me over his shoulder and sprinted to a hill in the middle of the park.
He tossed me down and set the blanket and the food up. “Bon a petit.” He whispered into my ear.
We had a few bites of food while chatting about the future and his touring and busy schedule. “Harry, I don’t think I can handle being without you. I mean I know I will… but it really sucks you know? Being away from you for so long…”
“I know… it really sucks for me too. Probably more than it does for you, I have to share a room with 4 guys that don’t cook for me, or clean up after me.” He joked, setting down his sandwich.
“You know what else they can’t do for you?” I whispered into his neck, “This.” I moved towards him slowly pushing him onto his back. I kissed him deeply and he breathed heavily through his nose. He started unbuttoning my blouse and I straddled him. He pulled away for a moment, “You’re sure you want to do this?”
I sat down and cried.
“Makenzie! Whats wrong?”
“It’s not bad Harry, its good,” I smiled, “I remembered that right up there was where we… where I lost my…” I sobbed again.
Harry sat down beside me and rubbed my back gently. “Hush now baby… it’s okay. I know this is all really overwhelming for you but-” I cut him off with a deep, passionate kiss. “I love you Harry.”
Harry broke into a huge grin. “I love you too Makenzie. You can’t imagine how long I’ve been waiting to hear those words come out of your mouth again.”
