Our Complicated Harmony

Makenzie is dragged to a party in England by her rich best friend, Hailey. While she's there, she meets a certain British popstar of whom seems pretty interested in her. A few shots and an overnight stay later, and they wake up half nude in the same bed. Though they can't remember much of anything, he is convinced that they slept together. So what now? (Things may become graphic at certain points in the story.)


4. Shopping

Soon enough Harry had changed his clothes and we were headed toward a shopping center of some kind. Louis talked during the entire ride, hardly earning more than a nod or a slight 'Mhm' from Harry or I. When we had arrived thought, Harry became incessantly chatty as well. He told me of all the stores I should go to and all the things I should buy as well as all the things he could get me.
In each store we went into, the boys picked outfits for me to try on. They varied from sweatpants and canvas shoes to evening gowns and stilletos. 
Louis first picked some of his signature stripes for me and a pair of skinnies to match, while Harry brought me some coats and beanies. When I tried on what each boy had picked for me, Harry beamed brightly and Louis told me that I looked awesome. He picked some cream-colored TOMS to match and he and Harry offered to pay for what they had picked. I graciously accepted, on the condition that it was the only thing each of them bought me.
I picked some  camis and colorful tees and bought black converse to accompany them, as well as a few pairs of dark and stone wash jeans and beanies. I bought colorful neon socks and even a pair of knock-off knit uggs. By the time we had left, my arms were full of bags and the boys had to take a few for me. They bought more clothes for me than they had previously intended, but I was almost glad, as well as feeling a bit guilty that I had allowed them to. 
When we returned to the apartment, I plopped down on the couch. Harry immediately took the bags from me into his room. I wandered in while he was putting the things in bags into his closet. "I hope you don't mind sharing a closet." he said "That's basically the only option we have." I shrugged.
"I'm just not sure how it'll all fit." I said taking a short dress of which Harry had picked from a bag. Below it I found a small pink bag that I didn't remember having. I opened it and found it to be filled with lacy black and pink lingerie.
"What is this?!" squeaked, barely suppressing laughter, a huge smirk on my face.
"Oh, well... Uh, you um. I just thought..." he sighed and scratch the back of his head. 
I burst with laughter and took out the lacy things, walking toward the bathroom between Louis and Harry's rooms, taking my clothes off and putting the lingerie on my body, too giddy to be self concious. 
I straightened my bun and walked back to Harry's room. Where he had been sitting on his bed he shot up at the sight of me and his eyes widened.
I rested my arm on the door and said, "What? This was what you had in mind wasn't it? Dress up?" I laughed maniacally. "Well now you've got just what you wanted." I walked over to the slack-jawed boy and pushed him to sit on the bed before straddling his lap and putting my lips to his ear. "This is just what you wanted right?" I paused to push my hips to his, making him let out a sort of growl and attach his hands to my hips. 
"You'll have to catch me." I whispered before springing from his arms. 
He gave a frustrated noise before running after me, nearly catching me twice, and finally nabbing me the third time.
"Harry!" I squealed as he tackled me to the ground as carefully as he could. He planted his lips on mine and turned us over so that he hovered over me.
"We should really take this to the bedroom." he said, between pressing kisses into my neck and collarbone. I nodded. We stood up, and Harry lifted and carried me bridal style to the bedroom.
I woke up the next morning to find that Harry was no longer in bed with me. I got out of bed and put on Harry's tee shirt and my shorts, and walked to the dining area that was attached to the kitchen. "Hello beautiful." Harry said, kissing my cheek. "Want some breakfast?" 
"Sure," I said, yawning. Just then, Louis walked in fully dressed in his usual attire.
"Taking Eleanor to brunch." he said, grabbing a piece of sausage off of the plate Harry had made me.
"Hey! That's mine!" I snapped
"No no no no." he said, "You had your fair share of sausage last night Makenzie. I'm sure the entire tenement can attest to that." he waved a finger at me before turning on his heel and walking out the door.
I swore under my breath as he went. "Don't sweat it love." Harry told me, "He's only jealous. He hasn't gotten any lately." I gave a half-hearted smile, eating my breakfast quickly before going back to the bedroom and picking out a pair of skinny jeans and a blue tee shirt to wear for the day. It was an awfully dreary-looking day outside, so I also grabbed a white beanie. I walked to the bathroom and turned the water on. I sat on the floor and tears started streaming down my face. "Why?" I whispered to myself "Why me?" I didn't want to be that girl. I missed my parents. I was all alone, possibly carrying the offspring of a pop star. I sobbed and stood up.
I took a razor out of the shower and started going over the familiar lines that I hadn't touched in so long. Red ribbons soon appeared on my arm.
"Hey Makenzie, I need to take a shower-" Harry started, walking through the door.
He ran toward me, taking the small razor and throwing it across the room. He took me into his lap and wrapped his arms around me and I started shaking with sobs.
"Shhh. Hey, it's okay." Harry said. "I'm scared too. We'll get through this. Just don't do this. " he exhaled. And picked up my arm. He kissed each of the ribboning cuts and got the first aid kit from the sink. He sat in front of me, pulling out the things he needed to clean the lacerations I had inflicted on myself. A new wave of tears started, and I hid my face in his shirt while he gently cleansed my arms. He finished and kissed my forehead.
"I can tell you aren't handling this well Makenzie, so we're going to take this a lot more slowly."
I nodded and stood, "Harry, I need to shower really quick, so if you'd leave now please."
"Okay." he said, standing and kissing my forehead before exiting the bathroom. I got in the tepid shower, washing my hair and body quickly, getting out and wrapping a towel around myself. I walked to the clost and switched my skinnies for a pair of sweats with Harry's sweatshirt.
"You look beautiful." Harry said as I walked out to the living room. He was sitting on the couch looking up at me, "My turn." he walked toward the bedroom to get his clothes. I grabbed my purse from the side of the couch, taking out my phone and charger and connecting them to the outlet. When my phone turned on, I had 106 texts and 57 voicemails from Hailey.
'Makenzie, I'm so sorry!'
'Dont be mad at me :('
'Please answer me!'
Things of that sort. I rolled my eyes and called Hailey.
"Hey Hailey," I said when she picked up.
"Thank God Kenzie! I cannot stand you being mad at me."
"I know." I said "I'm sorry I blew up at you... I know you were just trying to help."
"So, I saw a picture of Harry and yourself kissing at a shop in London online. What was that?"
"Don't even get me started." I huffed.
"Okay okay." she said. "Niall and I are official now." she said excitedly. "He's such a great guy Makenzie."
"So I've heard." I said as Harry walked out of the bathroom. He was shirtless and his hair had been blow-dried and perfectly styled in his signature swoop. His gray sweats hung low on his hips. He sat next to me on the couch, taking the phone from my hands and putting it to his ear.
"Hello?" he said "Hey Hailey! Yes of course I'm taking care of her. Niall taking good care of you? Good. Well, I'll give you back to Kenzie. Goodbye." he handed the phone to me and walked to the bedroom.
"Well that was random." I said.
"Just a little." Hailey said. "I've gotta go. Text me?" 
"No problem." I said "Bye!" 
I pressed end and Harry was standing in front of me with a shirt on this time.
"Movie day?" he asked.
"Yes please!" I said. He walked to the kitchen and came back with popcorn and Oreos. He started the movie and I snuggled into him, quickly falling asleep.
