The next morning, I woke up still in Harry’s arms. I felt much better after the resolution we had come to last night. I knew John would be working hard to book me my own shows, and for now, I would just take a bit of a break. Harry finally woke up and smiled when he saw me. “Good morning, love.” His voice was even cuter in the mornings. “Good morning, baby.” I said in my sweetest, morning voice. “You know what?” He asked with a grin. “What?” I replied. “I am so glad I met you, Brook.” He smiled the cutest smile I had ever seen. “I too am glad, Harry.” We both smiled and kissed each other. He suggested him and I go get something to eat downstairs, where there were no fans to harass us, so that is what we did. We spend the day hanging out with each other. His manager called later on in the day telling him he needed to be packed and ready to go. They had to continue their tour. I had forgotten about that part. I was going to be sad to see him go, but if it meant we could keep our relationship, I was willing to say good bye for little while. I helped him pack, and we said our goodbyes. I love him so much, and I didn’t want him to leave. The boys swung by my room to give me a hug before they left. They told me they would see me soon and we would all hang out again like old times. Niall of course was the one who said that. He always made me smile. As Harry left, a tear rolled down my face, and he wiped it off and said, “Don’t worry, babe I’ll be coming back for you.” He winked at me and I nodded. I couldn’t speak because I had that lump in my throat you get when you are trying to hold back tears. I’ve always hated goodbyes. I shut the door and my mom was there to hold me. “You’ll see him again soon, Sunshine.” She tried to sound positive but we knew it would be months before their tour was over. It had only just started a couple months ago. I didn’t argue with her though, I just nodded and she wiped away my tears.
As the months dragged on, Harry would call me every few days and let me know how everything was going. I told him I too have been kept busy. John had booked quite a few shows, and things were starting to brighten up. I had a lot of fans, and people were starting to respect me for my music. He told me how happy he was, but also how much him and the boys missed me. He would pass the phone around so I could say hi to all of them. I missed them so much. It hurt to hear their voices and my heart broke every time. It had been about five months since I had seen them, and there was only one month left of their tour. I was getting excited that I would get to see my boys again. I knew the month would go by fairly quick because I had about two shows a week. Interviews and things like that were speeding up the time as well. But I sure would be glad when their tour was done. During the last month, my shows went really well and my confidence level was rising. Mom and I were having tons of fun together and John as well. It was quite the experience. Before I knew it, the month had passed, and my boys were back. We met them in Chicago where my last show had been. When I saw them, they ran towards me and gave me a huge group hug. It felt so perfect to be back in their arms, especially Harry. Harry picked me up bridal style and kissed me. The boys teased and laughed, but they were glad Harry was smiling again. I was glad as well. Harry told me he wanted to take me out to a romantic dinner that night since it was the first time I had seen him in months. I had just bought the perfect dress for one of my photo shoots a couple of weeks ago and I knew I wanted to wear that. We all got a hotel together this time, and Mom and John stayed in another room close by. The boys stayed home, while Harry and I went to dinner. It was just the two of us, and it was nice to have some alone time with him, it had felt like it had been forever since I had seen him. When we got to the restaurant, to my surprise, he had already made reservations. I was impressed, he was so sweet. He looked amazing all dressed up, and I knew I loved him even more than before. As we ate dinner, the food was great and he stared into my eyes the whole time. Near the end, he got out of his chair. I thought he was going to the rest room, but he came over to my seat. I laughed because I didn’t know what was going on. He got on one knee, and I almost cried out of joy. “Brook, we have been through so much together, and I know we have not been together for that long, but I love you so much. I never want to feel afraid of losing you ever again. I love you way too much. So, I need to ask you Brook: Will you marry me?” I jumped out of my seat. “Yes, Yes Harry I will!” We kissed for a very long time and I had tears of happiness running down my face. I couldn’t wait to tell everyone, I was so excited. “Even if we can’t have the wedding for a little while, I just want to know that you are mine.” “I love you to the moon and back Harry, and I will always be yours.” I said with a tear in my eye. He smiled his wonderful smile, and we held each other tightly. Once we got back to the hotel, we told everyone the news. Mom was a little surprised I think, but she loves the boys to pieces, so she was happy. John told me that since the boys were off for a while, I too could spend some time off and spend it with them. Harry asked me to go back home with him, to meet the family. “It will be a perfect time to tell them about our engagement!” He said sounding more excited than ever. “That sounds great, Harry. Are you sure it will be alright with your family though?” I didn’t want to intrude. “I already spoke to my mother, love. She can’t wait to meet you.” I smiled and hugged him. “I love you”. I looked right into his eyes; I needed him to know I loved him and that he meant the world to me. “I love you too, Brook.” Everyone was smiling and having a great time. My mother was alright with me going to Harry’s to stay with him. She knew how hard the past months had been on us and I could tell she was happy to see us together again. I asked Harry when we would be leaving to go home, and he said he booked out flight for tomorrow at noon. We all packed our stuff and went to bed; I had another big day ahead of me. This time, it didn’t involve meeting the love of my life, but the love of my life’s family.
