14. No Place Like Home for the Holidays, Well Almost...

Lola's POV


I never would have thought that I would have been spending the holiday with Harry. At all. I mean, at first, I wanted nothing to do with him, then I had him and Louis hanging around all gushy at me and now here we are. Best friends. I am so great full that I am not in some random hotel all by myself. That would be awful. 

As the days continue, Christmas gets closer. Anne begins to bring up boxes and boxes of garland, strings of lights, candles, stockings and the Christmas tree decorations. Anne also brings up boxes of outdoor lights to decorate the house with. So much to do. But then I realize they don't have a tree.

"Don't you guys have a Christmas tree?" I ask, looking at the boxes. 

"Well, we have to go out and get one, duh." Harry says, beginning to untangle some of the strands of lights. 

"Oh, did yours break last year?" I ask beginning to help him. 

"Uh, well it died like they always do. Why would it break?" 

Then I realize something. I have always had an artificial Christmas tree. They must go out and buy one.

"Wait did you think we had an aritficial-" "Do you get a real-" We say at the same time and laugh.  "Yes" We say again at the same time. 

"We always go out on a nice winter night to the Christmas tree farm out in the country 15 minutes out and pick one out as a family together, you have had an artificial tree? Never once a real one?" He asks. I nod.

 "Well you have missed out. And I guess tonight is your lucky night." he says winking.

"What do you mean?" I ask.

"Mum was just talking about the tree before she left for grocery shopping and said it would be a great night to do it. So..." 

"TOnight? Really? Sweet!" I say giving him a hug.

"You excited?" 

"Uh Yah! When does your mom get home?" I ask.

"Well, probably in an hour, it takes her a while to shop. Lets get started on these decorations here while we wait for her." He says.

"Ok, I guess. Where's Gemma anyways?" I ask

"What? Am I not good enough?" He ask mockingly.

"Well.... I dunno, I just dont want to do all the work in these decorations, but I know that Gemma would help. Unlike some people." I say giving him a playful shove. 

"Oh really now! Well, watch what you say, I have a strange way of tangling people up in lights in strange ways." He says bringing a string of lights towards me. I back away and smile at him. I open a box with a wooden reindeer in it and I begin to set the decorations around, minding my own buisness, purposely not paying attention to Harry. This has to be driving him nuts. We work to the christmas music playing from the radio in the kitchen. I put out all of the decorations and the candles where they look most appropriate. I glance up after a while and see Harry staring at me.

"What? " I ask, checking around me for any signs of lights around me.  

"Oh... nothing, you are just cute when you are into your work." He says giving me a smile. I blush and smile back. 

"Thanks." I whisper. I set down one of the last nick-knacks and set the now first empty box of 4 by the stairs to be brought back down. I walk back to the living room to see Harry is gone, and I go look for him. He is in the foyer, beginning to wrap the string of lights he completed untangling around the railing. 

"Need help?" I ask. He looks up and his face lights up a little.

"Sure. Can you hold this here so it doesn't slide up more?"

"Sure." I take the place where he was holding and our hands brush one anothers, slowly making us freeze and then we continue on. He wraps the lights around and around. Once he is done, he plugs in the lights and the railing lights up, also illuminating the foyer as well. 

"Wow. Pretty! Nice job." I say.

"Thank you, I am a professional. Here lets get the outdoor stuff situated so we can start on that. We set all of the outdoor decorations by the front door, but then we hear the garage door open. Anne is home with Gemma, so now we are going to get the tree. 

"Kids! Help with these groceries and then get your coats. We are going out for a bit." Anne calls. I follow Harry to help with the groceries and once we bring them in the house, we run up to our rooms to grab our coats. I also grab my gloves and a beanie. (I stole it from Harry but he hasn't noticed it yet) 

Harry waits for me and we get into the car together. 

"So we are in for a little drive so make yourselves comfortable. It is a beautiful evening, the snow is flurrying and everything is feeling cozy for Christmas." Anne says, as we get on the road, turning on the christmas music. Harry begins to sing along, making me smile as he sings to me. He and I are in the back seat while Gemma is riding shot gun. I lean into Harry to stretch out my legs. He rests his head on my head and sings a little softer into my ear. I love the lowness of his voice that humms as the raspyness comes into his voice. We are all nice and warm and cozy. I like it. As we watch the country go by, we begin to see trees that could be possible christmas trees. 

"We're here! That was quick." Anne says I sit up and fix my hair under the beanie. 

"Hey! That's my beanie! I wonder where my blue one went." he says, poking at my head. I grin at him and once the car stops I dash out.

"Sorry, I found it in the hallway and forgot to give it to you." I smile cheekily at him. He smiles and rolls his eyes. 

"Forgot, eh? Well, I guess you can consider it to be my Christmas present to you. I wasn't going to get you anything so there ya go" He says giving me a cheeky wink back. I roll my eyes as we follow Anne and Gemma. We walk around the farm and there are a variety of christmas trees. As Anne and Gemma walk around Harry stops to inspect a fuller, medium sized tree.

"That's a pretty one." I comment

"Yeah, I like this one. But I feel like since there are bigger trees and even more fuller trees around it, no one notices it''s beauty. I bet this tree doesnt even know it is probably the best one here." he says.

"Well I dont think trees have feelings..." I say giving him a little nudge. He nudges me back. 

"Harry? Lola? Where are you- Oh! that's a nice one! what do you think? Should we get that one?" Anne asks as she finds us. 

"Yeah I like this one" Harry says and I agree with him. We get someone to cut it down and wrap it up and put it on top of the car. In a half an hour, we have accomplished the Christmas tree.

"Now when we get home, Me and Gemma always decorate the tree while Harry puts out the outside lights. Lola do you want to be inside or outside? "Anne asks

"Well, Maybe I'll float. Ill start off outside with Harry. Then maybe make my way inside." I say. I feel Harry look at me. 

"Ok sounds good lovely." she says as we get home. Me and Harry dont take off our coats and we grab the outdoor stuff and begin.

"So, I'll need to get the ladder to get the lights on the gutter." Harry says. 

"Ok, be safe." I say smiling, getting out some light up presents. I find an extension chord and plug them in as they illuminate. I grab some light up reindeer and plug them in as well and place them about the yard. Then I get some garland with some lights on them and wrap it around the railing on the front porch. Harry is still up on his ladder when Anne comes out.

"Hello Lola. Hi Harry! How's it going out here?" She asks, hanging something above the doorway. 

"Good!" Harry calls. 

"Good, yeah, I think I'll get some hot chocolate soon. It's getting a bit chilly. Ill be in a bit." I say. She nods and closes the door. 

"How's It going love?" Harry calls. 

"Good I'm all done down here! I think I'm gonna head inside and grab a cup of hot coco. I'll see ya in a bit." I say.

&qput;Ok see you. Hey give me a sip of yours when you get a chance!"he says.

" ok" I say walking in. I say hi to Anne and gemma and grab my hot chocolate. I heat up and let the warmth envelop my insides. Yum. I grab my beanie and throw it on, I shouldn't be outside for long. I go back out and I see Harry climbing down the ladder.

" hey harry I have the hot chocolate!" I say. He looks up and smiles.

" ok lemme put the ladder away quick and I'll be over." he says. I stand there shivering a little and wait. When he finally comes around the corner his face grows concerned.

" love it's freezing out here. Why don't you have a coat? Come here! Anyways I want to show you our finished product. " he says. I walk over to him and unzips his coat and wraps me in it and holds onto me.

" nice beanie though. Ready? Ta da!" he says as we look at the luminescent house. His lighting job looked amazing and it was a perfect fit to the work I did.

" wow it's beautiful! " I say in awe.

" couldn't have done it without you" he says. I smile and remember the hot chocolate. I hand it to him and he smiles and takes a sip.

"mmmm perfect. Here lets head on in" he says. We walk towards the house and before we go in the door, Harry stops.

" what's wrong?" I ask.

" oh nothing, it has just been an amazing day. Every day has been. With you here, it's just Been better." he says smiling.

" aw thanks. You are too sweet. I have enjoyed myself too." I say. We just stand there and stare at each other. Harry's eyes under the lights and his hair is peaking its way out of its hat. It looks cute. Then our eyes lock.

" you look beautiful tonight Lo." he says softly. I blush and smile up at him.

" thanks" I whisper. He tucks a strand of my hair behind my ear under my beanie. His hands giving me an electric buzz on my skin. Then his face comes closer. I can begin to feel his breath on my face and smell the smell of him. He does smell good. Then he looks up and I look up too. Mistletoe. That's what Anne must have hung. I smile and let out a soft laugh and Harry does the same. The next thing I know is his lips land on my lips. One of the most amazing feelings I have ever had. His lips are so soft and tender. He kisses me with no tounge but I'm fine with that. Then he pulls away. We smile at each other and he wraps me up in his arms.

" let's go inside. It's warm and they are probably wondering what's taking so long." he says opening the door to the warm house. Who would have thought that this home for the holidays mistletoe would be the best?
