5. Exploring London

The next morning, I roll over and bury my face in to the pillow. After a few minutes, I roll back on to my side and grab my phone off the bedside table. I press the home button on my white iPhone to see I had two new messages, one from my mum and one from Harry. I open up the one from my mum first and begin to read it. She had just texted to ask if I got to Liam’s alright and if I’m having a good time so far.

After I quickly reply back and tell her I made it okay and that I’m having a great time so far, I go back to my messages and tap on Harry’s name so I could read his message.

It read: Morning love. Sorry if I woke you. I’ll be over to pick you up at noon. Be ready. Can’t wait to see you x

I smile as I read his text. He was so sweet. Am I starting to fall for him already? I’ve hardly known him for only two days, almost. I glance up at the time and notice that it is a little past ten o’clock; about 10:15. I decide to get up and begin to get ready for the day. As I slowly get up after I push the sheets off my body, I stand up and make my way over to my suitcase that sat at the foot of the bed.

I pick out a pair of skinny jeans and a racer-back tank top along with a cardigan before I head to the bathroom in the hall way, clothes in hand. The light was off and the door was open. I slowly made my way across the hall and in to the bathroom before I shut the door behind me. After I turn the water on and let it heat up, I slip out of my clothes I somehow had forgotten to change out of last night before I open the glass door of the shower and get in.

I felt more awake and refreshed after my shower. My hair smelled like strawberries, my favorite scent, and was freshly styled how I wanted it. I decided to keep it down, it had a bit of a wave to it but my hair wasn’t too wavy. It didn’t take very long to put my outfit on. After I pull on my jeans, I brush my teeth and finish getting myself ready.

I grab my dirty clothes before I carry them in to the room I was staying in and put them in a trash bag I brought to put all my dirty clothes in. After I put my dirty clothes away, I go over and grab my phone and stuff it in the back pocket of my jeans. Before I grab my purse off the door handle and begin down the stairs, I pull on my black converse.

As I walk in the kitchen, I look up to meet Liam’s gaze. “Morning Mads,” he says with a smile.

“Mornin’ Liam,” I tell him with a small smile as I push my bag higher up on my shoulder while I take a seat at the bar.

“Where’s Dani?” I ask in curiosity as I look at him, my brows furrowed together.

“She’s still asleep. You seem rather content this morning, why’s that, love?” he asks in a soft voice as he takes a seat next to me with a cup of tea which was tightly in his grasp.

“N-no reason,” I mumble as I feel the heat begin to rise up on my cheeks.

“It’s because of Harry, I take it?” he asks and takes a slow sip of his warm tea.

“Yeah,” I say as I stare down at the granite countertop in deep concentration.

“He’s going to show me around London today,” I tell him as I look up at him.

“Have fun, Mads and be careful,” he tells me with a small smile.

“I will, Liam!” I reply back.

“Is he coming to get you?” he asks as he takes another sip of his tea. I nod in response.

“Would you like some, love?” he asks and motions to the tea he was holding.

“I would love some, Li, if you don’t mind,” I tell him as I look up at him while he stares back at me with his caramel-colored eyes. Liam gets up off the stool and carries his cup into the kitchen as he prepares me a cup.

A few minutes later, he comes up and hands it to me in a mug. “Here you are, Mads,” he says and places it in front of me. I thank him and let out a small giggle. He is too funny.

“I feel like a barista who works in a coffee shop,” he says as I reach forward and pick the mug up slowly bringing it up to my lips. I laugh at his remark. It was a good thing I haven’t already drank any, or it would of went everywhere from me bursting out in laughter.

“Oh, I’ve missed you and your wit, Liam,” I tell him with a small smile as I take a slow sip of my tea before I carefully place it back on the counter. We talk for the next few minutes until the doorbell goes off throughout the flat.

Liam rushes over to answer the door. I pull out my phone to check the time. It was a few minutes before twelve. Harry was right on time when he said he would be over.

“Mads, Harry’s here!” Liam calls for me.

“Coming!” I call back as I set the mug down and make my way toward the door.

Liam and Harry were talking quietly to one another, so I had no clue what they were talking about. I feel the heat rush up to my cheeks as I stare at the boy in front of me. He wore some jeans and a simple shirt along with some Chuck Taylor All-stars that were similar to mine. His curls were somewhat messy and a few were covering his forehead.

“H-hey Madison,” Harry says with a wide smile as he meets my gaze.

“Hi Harry,” I tell him with a smile.

“So, you ready to go?” he asks as he looks at me.

“I am if you are,” I tell him with a smile.

“Let’s get going then, shall we?” he asks with a smile as he looks at me, his emerald eyes glistening in the light as he waits for a reply.

I nod with a smile as I push my bag higher up on my shoulder before I follow behind him. Today should be fun since Harry was going to show me around. I was happy but nervous too, one reason being that I think I am starting to fall for him and secondly, I haven’t been in a relationship since I was sixteen, so it’s been a while since I have been with someone.



“So, where to first, love?” Harry asks with a smile as he looks at me.

“Doesn’t matter to me, I’m sure you know London better than I do,” I tell him with a smile.

We were standing on some street near downtown. He grabs my hand and leads me to our first destination; the London Eye. It was actually really fun. After he took me to the London eye, we went to walk around on the bridge.

Harry and I even got to know each other better and I can tell that we were becoming close. Have to admit, I was having a really good time with him and I wanted to do this again. Am I starting to fall for him already? He was a real good guy and I can see myself with someone like him, I really can.

“How about we go get some frozen yogurt? I know this real good place down town,” he asks and smiles at me. I nod with a smile.

“Sounds good to me!” I exclaim as I smile at him.

We get in to his car and he drives over to get some yogurt. We make it to the place about fifteen minutes later. He parks his car and we get out before we head up to the front entrance of the yogurt place.

“Ladies first,” Harry says as he opens the door and looks at me. He was such a gentleman, I was impressed.

“Thanks,” I tell him with a smile as he holds the door open for me.

“No problem, love,” he says as I go forward in the door. Harry walks in behind me and I feel him press his hand against my lower back as we get in line. There were a few people ahead of us. A few minutes later, he removes his hand from my back and turns to me.

“I had a great time with you today, Madison,” he says with a small smile as we wait in line.

“I did too,” I feel my cheeks heat up and I have to avert my eyes to the floor to keep myself from smiling. I really did have a good time with him. Pretty soon, Harry and I were next in line.

“What would you like, love?” Harry asks and looks at me as we move up to the counter and begin to decide on what we’re going to get.

“One scoop of chocolate, please,” I say simply with a smile. Harry orders his, a scoop of vanilla in a cup. We get up to the cash register a few minutes later after we get each of our desserts.

I begin to pull out some money from my wallet so I can pay when Harry lightly grabs hold of my wrist.

“Don’t worry about it, love, I got it,” Harry says and pays for me.

“Thanks,” I tell him with a small smile.

After he pays, he hands me my yogurt and I take a spoonful and put it in my mouth. It was good; this was some pretty good stuff I haven’t had in a long time. We go over and take a seat at a two seater table. Harry and I talk and laugh about a ton of different things while we eat our yogurt. After we finish up, we head back to the flat complex. I didn’t even realize the time; it was already nearing five-thirty.

Harry walks me back to the door of Liam’s flat. I smile as I look at the tall curly-haired boy who stood before me. His eyes glistened in the light from the hall way. I smile, today was fun and I had a real good time. I haven’t had a good time like this in a while.

“I had a great time with you today, Madison,” Harry says with a smile as I notice him take a step closer to me. His chest was only a couple inches away from mine and I could feel his hot breath on my face. Is he going to kiss me?

I take in a slow breath as I stare up at him. “Me too,” I smile as I look up at him.

“I’d love to see you again, Maddie,” he says and presses a kiss to my forehead. “How about tomorrow?” he asks and smiles as he waits for an answer.

“Same here, sounds good, I’d love to,” I tell him as he pulls me in a hug.

I smile and hug him back; I couldn’t help but take in his scent, he smelled good. We tell each other that we will see each other tomorrow. That night, I fall asleep with dreams of Harry and how much I am already starting to like him. I am really starting to like him and I have only known him for almost two and a half days. I have a strong feeling this summer is definitely going to be one to remember.
