February 14th (1SHOT41D)

This is for the 1SHOT41D contest. Kenzie is dating Harry Styles from One Direction and thinks he's too busy to spend time with her on Valentine's Day. She's in for a good surprise set up by her best friend.


1. Surprise

I slowly opened my eyelids and groaned. My mother left the curtain shades open and the sun had blinded my line of sight. My eyes drifted towards the calendar that  hung up across my enormous bed. I knew the date, but I bothered to check anyways; February fourteenth. My emotions took over, making me sad by reminding me that Harry said he was going to be busy today. 

I lifted the duvet off my numb body and hoisted myself off the mattress. I walked down the hallway and entered my bathroom, turning on the shower. I slipped out of my silky pajamas and stepped into the shower. The warm water dribbled down my back and splashed my skin as the drops hit the ground, the sound echoed throughout the tiny room.

Once my long blonde hair was fully drenched, I filled my palm with shampoo and brought my hair over my shoulder. I retreated from the waterfall that runs over my head to let the shampoo soak into my hair. I thoroughly rinsed my hair out before continuing to rub in the conditioner, making my hair feel like silk against my skin. While the conditioner rested in my blonde locks, I decided to freshly shave my legs, as they were getting stubble on them.

I proceeded to finish my shower and took a couple minutes to dry off and lather my skin with lotion. Since today was a special holiday, I decided to wear something nice. I usually would laze around the house, wearing sweats, eating, and watching Titanic because Harry is always too busy to find time to spend with me. After a couple minutes of searching for the perfect outfit, I found it. I pulled out the spaghetti strapped, knee length, light pink dress that ruffled at the top and bottom, the bright red leggings that were used for another outfit, and my white cardigan.

I slipped into my clothing and skipped back into the bathroom. I took out a blow dryer and dried my wet, dangling hair. It took quite a few minutes to dry my hair because it was down my back and reached the tip of my bum. I carefully placed my blonde curls over my shoulder and began to braid all the way down my side until I reached the tip of my hair. I took a hair tie, wrapped it on the edge where the braid ended and held it in place.

Once my hair was perfect, I decided it was about time to brush my teeth. I opened up my medicine cabinet and took out my toothbrush and toothpaste. I popped open the cap and squeezed the minty fluoride onto my purple spin brush. I flipped up the switch to it and placed the moving bristles to my pearly white teeth. The mint flavor exploded across my taste buds and sent a chill down my spine.

Just I was ready to finish scrubbing my tongue, my phone burst into song; Count On Me by Bruno Mars was the ringtone for my best friend, Lauren.

"Yes, Lauren?" I unplugged my phone and answered the call.

 "Hey Kenz, I need you down at the pier, as soon as you can." She didn't sound as worried as she should have if she needed me in a short period of time.

"What for?" I suspiciously asked.

"Just hurry up!" Lauren dropped the call as soon as she screamed in my ear.

I rinsed my mouth out with water to get rid of the leftover toothpaste and applied makeup before grabbing my purse and leaving my flat. The pier was about a fifteen minute drive away from my flat.

I walked to the end of the driveway and stepped into my little, silver car. I shoved the keys into the ignition, heard my engine roar to life and rearranged the gear shift, so it was set into reverse. Once I backed out from my driveway, I put my car into drive and started my way to the pier.

I pushed in the button to turn on my radio. While changing the channels, I finally found the one song that could make my day better; What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction. I started singing along to Zayn's solo because that's what was on when I got to the channel, I missed the beginning of the song.  When it got to Harry's solo, I shut my mouth and pretended that he was here with me so we were together on the most special day of the year.

The song ended after I got to the first of ten stoplights. The next song on the playlist was Locked Out of Heaven by Bruno Mars. Every time he sang the 'ooh', I thought of Louis doing a hip thrust, considering that was his 'thing'. I started to sing and dance in my seat as I neared the next stoplight.

"Check point." I mumbled to myself while passing the second out of ten 'check points', as I like to call them.

"You make me feel like, I've been locked out of heaven!" I sang smoothly while driving passed the third stoplight, which was green before I could press down on my breaks. "Oh yeah yeah, oh yeah yeah yeah. Oooh!" I did a hip thrust like Louis would've if he was here. the song slowly faded out when I reached the fifth check point.

"White lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes." The sound of Ed Sheeran's voice bounced around the inside of my care. I never sang along to Ed's songs because my horrible voice wasn't made for sopranos like Ed's was. I enjoyed his beautiful voice as I just tapped my steering wheel and drove to the eighth check point, so close.

I turned my turning signal on as I got to the final heck point and reached the pier. I parked my little car in the parking lot and shut off the engine. I pushed open the door and climbed out of the vehicle. I gathered my items up and placed them into my purse and hauled the purse onto my shoulder before closing the door.

Walking down the shore, I noticed that I couldn't find Lauren, so I called her.

"Yes?" Her peppy voice ringed in my ear.

"Where are you, I can't find you." I whispered into the speaker.

"You shouldn't be looking for me. What you should do, which I highly recommend, is to turn around." And she hung up, I hate when she does that.

I clicked my heels as I turned around and dropped my phone in the sand. There he was, dressed in his favorite blazer and white v-neck shirt. I didn't even think about my phone, I just ran straight into Harry's arms and he wrapped his muscles around my waist.

"I thought you were busy." I cried into the crook of his neck.

"Even if I was, I would never leave you alone on Valentine's day, also known as our anniversary." He kissed my hair at the top of my head.

"I love you, Harry."

"I love you too, Kenzie."
