Chapter 8

 

Tom led me in through the double doors of the museum following the signs for the Hollywood Costume exhibition. I let go of his arm taking in my surroundings. Oh my god, Tom Hiddleston has brought me here! Tom realised I let go of his arm and stopped walking looking at me. I stood still taking in the beautiful scenery.

 

The V&A was a beautiful old building with a beautiful ceiling and floor decorated with tiles decorated in the shape of flowers. I felt like Elizabeth Bennett when she walks into Mr Darcy’s house in Pemberley, it was absolutely breathtaking. I couldn’t quite believe it. The museum was split into different sections with different exhibitions including an exhibition on ballroom gowns. It was also split into different countries with statues and certain pieces iconic to each country.

“You ok there darling?” Tom asked.

“This is absolutely breathtaking Tom, Thankyou so much” he chuckled “We haven’t even got into the exhibition yet darling”. He smiled then looked at his watch. “I don’t mean to rush you love but were booked for the exhibition at half past two and its now two fifteen.”

“Oh…right…sorry” I stuttered.

“That’s quite alright darling, come on” he held his hand out with a smile. I took it smiling back.

 

We continued to walk down the museum corridors following the signs for the Hollywood Costume exhibition. As we were nearing the exhibition a few young girls came up and asked Tom to sign pieces of paper and take photos with them, which he gladly agreed to. He let go of my hand to sign his autograph. They smiled at me but in my head I knew they were wondering who I was.

 

Once they were happy Tom took my hand again apologising and continuing on our way to the exhibition.

 

A few minutes later we were stood in a dark corridor with more Hollywood costume posters everywhere. A stewardess came over dressed in black trousers, a white shirt, black tie and blazer with her blonde hair tied into a ponytail.

“Ah, Mr Hiddleston, everything is set up for you, enjoy the exhibition”

“Thankyou Marie” Tom replied. I smiled at her, she smiled back.

“Ready darling?” Tom asked looking at me with a big smile on his face. I smiled back nodding and as Tom opened the doors to the exhibition I couldn’t quite believe my eyes.

 

I was expecting the room to be filled with people all looking at the exhibition but it was disserted. I looked at Tom. “I didn’t think you could really appreciate it if there were loads of other people here so I booked it just for you to really take in the experience and enjoy” I smiled hugging him. “Thankyou Tom”.

 

The room was dark with dim Hollywood lights and elegant music that just fit with the exhibition.

 

Walking in a montage of film clips from all different films were shown. Immediately I felt tears form in my eyes. Don’t let Tom see you cry, don’t let Tom see you cry! I didn’t quite realise how much the world of film and cinema meant to me until that moment and being here with Tom made it even more special.

 

Seeing all these costumes worn by some of the most famous actors and actresses in film was absolutely mind blowing. You don’t quite realise how much of an importance costume is in making a film until seeing it at something like this.

 

Tom looked over at me concerned as a few tears rolled down my face. Tom wiped them away with his thumb “Oh darling, I didn’t mean to make you cry, I thought you’d like it, im so sorry” Tom looked down at his shoes. I cupped his face in my hands begging for him to look at me.”Tom, look at me” when he finally did his eyes looked right into my soul.

“Thomas William Hiddleston you apologise for a lot of things and this certainly isn’t one of them. They’re happy tears”. He smiled at this. “Im absolutely overwhelmed, I didn’t quite realise how much film actually meant to me until now, and you have no idea. I can’t Thankyou enough Tom.” A few more tears rolled down my cheeks. Tom wiped them away leaning in for a kiss. I kissed him back with as much love and passion as I could muster. When we pulled away he kissed my hand taking me by the arm and escorting me round the exhibition.

 

The first part of the exhibition displayed costumes from films such as Gone with the Wind including the green dress Scarlett O Hara wore, the jacket Matt Damon wore in the Bourne films and the period costumes worn by Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth and the costumes worn by Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love. At this Tom bowed taking my hand and kissing it “Fair maiden”. I giggled curtsying in return “Kind sir”. He also took this opportunity to quote Romeo and Juliet.

 

Getting up from bowing Tom put his hands on my waist and in return I put my hands around his neck before he began his monologue.

But soft what light through yonder window breaks

It is the east and Emily is the sun

Praise fair sun and kiss the envious moon

Who is already sick and pale with grief.

It is my lady, o it is my love

O that she knew she were

 

Oh my god Tom Hiddleston is quoting Romeo and Juliet to me. With Romeo and Juliet being my favourite Shakespeare play and having learnt it in school I recited the next few lines.

 

O Tom, Tom wherefore out though Tom. He laughed poking his tongue out. I raised my eyebrows at him before finishing my monologue ignoring the cute look on his face.

Deny thy father and refuse they name

Or at thou wilt not, be but sworn my love

And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.

 

At this Tom caught my lips with his smiling into the kiss. Tom pulled away and once again took my hand. I love how his hands fit in mine, id never tire of holding them, his long slender fingers wrapped around my hand.

 

The second part of the exhibition included sections dedicated to certain actors and the costumes they wore particular films including Meryl Streep and the costumes she wore in Mamma Mia, The Iron Lady and Out of Africa aswell as one of the costumes Johnny Depp wore in Sweeney Todd and the red dress Keira Knightley wore in Anna Karenina.

 

I stood there in shock, I still couldn’t believe I was here-I said to Tom that he should have had a section in here but he said that he wasn’t as famous as these amazing actors. It broke my heart to hear him say such a thing. I couldn’t quite believe what I was hearing. Here was the man who was so inspirational, so humble, such a talented actor that deserved all the Oscars and awards and has worked with the likes of Steven Spielberg and Woody Allen and saying that he wasn’t famous enough. He really has no idea how talented he is. It breaks my heart.

 

Walking into the final part of the exhibition my eyes automatically filled with tears again. As soon as I turned the corner and saw the little black dress Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s my hand flew to my mouth trying to stifle the tears that fell. Audrey was one of the many famous actresses I admired and seeing that dress, that famous black dress she wore throughout Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the dress I tried to recreate for my eighteenth birthday the emotion just got to me.

 

It got to me even more when I saw the feather dress Nicole Kidman wore in Moulin Rouge and the green dress Keira Knightley wore in Atonement I just completely lost it. Tom saw how much it meant to me purely by the way my eyes shone and how much my face lit up. I soon found myself wrapped up in his embrace his strong arms around me.

The tears kept on flowing making his leather jacket and grey t shirt wet. I pulled away after a while. “I`m so sorry, Tom you seem to see me cry a lot I feel so silly and look ive got your jacket and t shirt all wet”.

 

He looked right into my wet eyes seeing into my soul holding my face in his hands and wiping the last few tears away with his thumb.

“Darling no. I will not have you apologise for being as passionate as you are about the best thing in the world. This is why I do what I do, why I`m an actor, because I enjoy, like many other actors to see the audiences reactions and how much of an effect characters and the story have on them. You getting upset and emotional just shows your passion and how much film means to you darling so I will not have you apologising ok?”

 

I smiled looking back into his eyes. “I’ve always loved film but even more so since I discovered your work, Tom, you have no idea how much of an inspiration you are, not just to me but to loads of other fans and people. You’re absolutely amazing Tom” he kissed my palm.

“Bless you for saying that my darling, you have absolutely no idea how much it means to me to be told that, its people like you and comments like those that make me want to continue acting, so Thankyou so much darling”. I stroked his cheek. He smiled kissing my hand and putting it through his arm.

“Come my lady, we still have the last past to look around”.

 

Also included in the exhibition were the pink suit Reese Witherspoon wore in Legally Blonde, the yellow dress Kate Hudson wore as Andie Anderson in How to loose a guy in 10 days plus the checkered dress Judy Garland wore in order to portray Dorothy.

 

Ofcourse you cant forget the white dress made famous by Marilyn Monroe in Some like it Hot and the tux worn by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale which Tom got a excited about with him being a huge bond fan. Quoting the famous “Im Bond, James Bond”. I laughed saying “No, you’re Hiddleston, Tom Hiddleston.”

 

“I can’t wait to see you in you’re tux. You know some of your fans have photoshopped pictures of you as Bond” I said casually regretting it as soon as I said it.

“Ooohh Really?” he said with a smirk.

“I can’t wait to see you in you’re tux I repeated again.”

“For your eyes only ehehe” this got us both in fits of giggles before Tom turned serious again and saying “And I cant wait to see you in your dress darling, you always look beautiful but you’ll look even more beautiful in your bridesmaids dress” I smiled taking one last look around the room before going back to reality.

 

Tom led me out of the exhibition and into the gift shop where I took yet more photos. I swear I was getting more and more like Amy with the whole taking photos everywhere I went. There was no way I couldn’t not take photos of this amazing day and my time in London. As we weren’t allowed to take photos in the exhibition I made the most of taking photos in the gift shop aswell as buying myself a book on Hollywood Costume, a postcard that read `film fanatic` and an oscar statue to present Tom with later.

 

I insisted that Tom let me pay for the book as he surprised me with today. He agreed with hesitation.

 

Once id bought the book and finished taking photos we went and got a cup of tea from the catering stand in the gardens.

 

I found a text from Amy whilst waiting for our teas that asked if I had a good time and if me and Tom wanted to meet up with her and Jay for dinner. I asked Tom and he said that would be nice. I text Amy back asking where to meet her and at what time before following Tom over to a table to sit and drink our tea.

 

We sat in silence for a while smiling at each other taking in the scenery of the gardens and what we had just experienced.

 

I started the conversation first. “I don’t know how to Thankyou for today Tom, I really don’t. It was absolutely incredible and just saying Thankyou really isn’t enough. It was a pleasure to meet you a few weeks ago, I didn’t think Id ever get to meet you and when I saw you at Amy’s I had to do a double to take to really believe it was you. I didn’t think id get to meet you let alone you come round and watch a film with me the same day and take me out to dinner the following evening and now im sat here with you drinking tea at the V&A after you’ve just taken me to see some of the most beautiful film costumes in the world. I mean yeah, im a huge fan of yours and still am but having gotten to know you as just Tom, rather than Tom Hiddleston the actor was so much nicer and meant so much more to me. you’re absolutely lovely to your fans but it was just so lovely to spend the day with you, as you, if that makes sense?” I took a breath and a sip of my tea before continuing. “You really are so lovely, so kind hearted and absolutely gorgeous I cant even put into words how honoured I feel to have spent the day with you and gotten to know you.” he smiled standing up and coming to kneel down infront of my so he could look into my eyes.

 

“As I said to you when I first met you back at Amy’s a few weeks ago, the pleasure is entirely mine my darling. As I said that’s part of the reason I enjoy what I do and if it wasn’t for the fans I wouldn’t be where I am today. But you, darling, I don’t see you as my fan, I see you as a friend…erm more than a friend actually…” he looked down at his shoes. I put my hand on his shoulder. “Tom, Tom look at me, what do you mean `more than a friend`? I had a pretty good idea I just wanted to see what he said.

 

He finally looked at me and continued. “Emily, darling, I know ive only known you a few weeks but I really really like you and im not just saying that because Amy is getting married and you’re the maid of honour and I`m Jay’s best man and the maid of honour and best man are meant to cop off with each other.” He laughed nervously. “I genuinely want you on my arm at the wedding not just as my date but…as my girlfriend”. Oh my god what. Tom Hiddleston wants me to be his girlfriend??

 

T…Tom” he cut me off before I could say anything.

“I know we haven’t known each other that long and that we barely know each other but I would really like to get to know you, everything about you and if you would give me this chance and let me prove to you that I will treat you right then I promise I will take things as slow as you like. I just really enjoy spending time with you and kissing you and if you give me a chance to prove my feelings to you I promise I will make you as happy as I possibly can. What do you say?” he got down on one knee “Emily, my lady, my darling will you do me the honour of being my girlfriend?” Oh my god oh my god oh my god Tom Hiddleston, THE Thomas William Hiddleston has just asked me to be his girlfriend!!!

“Darling?” he looked up into my eyes.

“Yes, Tom, Yes” I whispered leaning in and kissing him with as much passion I could. It wasn’t long before he was kissing me back, our tongues and teeth battling with each other. He pulled away after what felt like a few minutes but what felt like forever. I moaned at the loss of contact.

“Can I just stay attached to your lips forever?” I asked. He laughed throwing his head back and sticking his tongue out. Ehehe.

“As much as Id like to kiss you for the rest of the day darling we’ve got to go and meet Jay and Amy for dinner” Tom said.

 

He gave me one last kiss before getting up off the ground and offering me his hand. “My lady”

“Why Thankyou my love” I smiled. I know id only known him for a few weeks but it just felt right, as though id known him forever. So natural. I means yes, I was still a fan but knowing Tom as just Tom was so much better.

 

He took hold of my hand and led me back through the museum out the exit and back onto the busy streets of London. Tom hailed a taxi escorting me in first and telling the driver the address of the restaurant we were to meet Amy and Jay at.

 

This was going to be a perfect evening to the end of a perfect day, dinner with my best friend, her fiancée and my boyfriend, Tom Hiddleston. Wow that was going to take a bit of getting used to.
