Cocktails and Cigarettes

“Rita, what did you say to her?!” I demanded, getting nervous.

“That you were head over heels in love with her…what did you think I said?”

“She ran away looking like she was about to cry…”

“Well than go check on her; dumbass.” Zayn said, rolling his eyes. I blushed and slowly walked outside, looking for Bethany. I found her digging through her purse violently.

“Bethany…?” I practically whispered, but she heard me.

“What?” She choked out, clearly crying.

“Please don’t be afraid…”

“Of what?” I grabbed her in my arms and kissed her passionately.

“Loving me…” I said once I pulled away.

“Why would I be afraid of loving someone?”



“Are you afraid to love me?” She didn’t answer me and that’s when I had my answer. “Why?”

“Everyone hurts you or leaves you in the end…this is no different.”

“Everything about this is different.”

“How do you know? You’re just a guy saying this in the moment…”

“Then here’s something else I can say not involving this moment…” I paused and tilted her chin up so she was looking in my eyes. “Take a risk for me…” I put my lips next to hers, barely kissing her. I felt her lips quivering, so I pressed my lips to her’s again. “Please…”


“Yes?” I asked, moving back a step so I could see her eyes.

“I’m in love with you.” She whispered and looked at the ground, covering her face with her hands. I moved her hands from her face and took her face in my hands.

“I’m in love with you too.” I saw more tears start flowing down her cheeks and I kissed her one more time before I dragged her inside.

Everything was finally right…



You would think something like this is funny. I’m finally out of high school and I have been for a couple years now.

But that isn’t the funny part. The funny part is that this is my wedding day; my wedding day to Harry Styles. I remember about five years ago I was afraid to love him, to love anyone, but he showed me that taking risks in love is what makes you happy. And I am…happy I mean.

I was finally able to give up the cocktails, the cigarettes and believe in something other than them for once. And for once, it worked out for me.
