Harry' POV

A FEW DAYS LATER

 

Char was leaving today.
 I woke up to see her delicately shiver and her pink lips parted to take a breath. I stroked her hair and felt a tear roll down my eye. I wiped it away and she stirred.
"Harry!" She whispered. 
I lay back down and kissed her. 
We slowly got out of bed and went to the door silently, no doubt both of us were thinking about how hard it was going to be. 
"Do you ever take off that sweatshirt?" I laughed. She shook her head seriously and took my hand. I followed her out into the main room. 
"Hey Char." The boys called from the kitchen. 
"Hi boys." She said quietly. I could tell it was hard enough for her to be without me, but to leave all of us was almost impossible.
"Ok so before you leave we have some stuff for you." Louis smiled. 
Liam and Niall ran into a different room where I assumed Zayn was to get the gift. I smiled slightly and looked at Char who was confused but continued to eat an apple. 
"Char, I want you to be nice. Ok?" I said, holding her shoulder with one hand. She was so bad at accepting other people's gifts, I knew she hated when others spent money on her. 
"Ok..." She grimaced. 
Louis laughed and turned to me mouthing "She'll love it!"
I nodded and laughed along. Char stuck out her tongue then took the last couple bites of her apple. Right as the core hit the bottom of the rubbish bin, Zayn walked out. 
"So, we saw this and knew that you'd like it when you get lonely and such." He said. I broke into a large grin as did Louis and Zayn. 
Char stood and walked to lean against me, her arms crossed. 
Liam and Niall walked out holding a red leash connected to a puppy. 
"Oh my god!" She cried, walking slowly to pick it up. 
"He's all yours." Niall said. 
"He's so cute! And curly!" She said petting the dog. 
"It's a golden retriever." Liam said. 
"I name him Curly Niam Loyn the second." She giggled.
"What the hell is that mouthful?" Louis asked walking over.
"It's Curly, after Harry and it's hair. But I also gave him two middle names; Niam a mix of Niall and Liam, and Loyn a mix of Zayn and Louis. Oh and the second just sounds fancy." She said cuddling the puppy. 
"Creative..." Zayn laughed. 
Char stuck her tongue out at him and said, "Thanks guys. It's perfect."
We all gave her hugs and took turns playing with the puppy.
"We also got you this." Zayn grinned as Liam ran back into the other room. He emerged with a giant cardboard cut out of me. 
She burst into laughter and ran to the life size figure. 
"Now I'll always be with you." I laughed. 
"Always." She nodded. 

 

"Ok one more surprise!" I said. 
Char turned and laughed, "Of course." 
"I wanted to do something nice for you. So, when we came back I made plans." I said. 
"Now, get in the car, looser we're going to a surprise." Louis said. 
I ran out to the car with Char who changed into leggings, uggs, and a different sweatshirt of mine. 
"Where are we going?" She asked suspiciously. 
"Secret!" Zayn and Niall yelled. 
"You guys are crazy." She laughed. 
"Not as crazy as you!" Liam said. 
"Yeah... wait! Actually we are all about even on the crazy scale." She smiled. 
"I don't know about that." Louis said eyeing Char. 
"Oh, of course! Louis you're defiantly more mental than all of us combined." Char giggled. 
"Burke! I'm guna get you for that." He laughed. 
"Calm people! We're here." I said looking out the window. 
"Nice, now erm where is here?" Char asked me. 
"It would be a go cart racing place." I answered. She practically jumped out of the car. 
"She is insane, but I'm guna miss her like crazy." Louis whispered. We all nodded sadly and ran out to find her. 

 

"That was so fun! What time is it?" I said. 
"Erm- 5:30." Char said. 
She had fun defiantly. But her driving was a bit freaky...
"What? Oh my god no!" Niall freaked out. 
"What Nialler?" Liam asked, worried. 
"I. Skipped. Lunch!" He screamed. We laughed and heard the paps coming and shouting. 
"Great." Zayn sighed. 
They had been pretty bad since Char and I became offical, actually they were bad before we were completely dating too. 
Char walked over to them and said a few things. She came back and hopped into the car. 
"C'mon boys!" She called. We all looked at each other but slowly got in. 

 

"I'm surprised." Louis said when we were almost home. 
"Why? Cuz Ni skipped lunch?" Char said.
"Shut up!" Niall mumbled. 
"No, cuz you didn't crash your go cart." Louis said. 
"Louis Tomlinson, I am an amazing go cart driver." She said. 
"But I beat you every time." I said. 
"Lies! You're a dirty cheater, Harry Styles." Char said.
"I beat you too." Zayn smirked. 
"Yeah well... No comment." She said giving up. Truth is we all beat her a couple times, but she was extremely fast and insane with her driving. 
"Where to?" I asked. 
"Nandos?" Char said. 
I checked my watch. We would have enough time. 
"Sounds nice but we gotta get you to the airport by seven." I said. 
She frowned but nodded. 
"By the way, what did you tell the paps?" Liam asked. 
"Oh I just asked if the would mind backing off a bit that we haven't really had a chance to talk alone in a while." She shrugged. 
"And they listened? You are one very persuasive person." Zayn said from the driver's seat.

 

We finished our meal at six, giving us enough time to get Char her stuff and to the airport by seven.
"I don't wanna go." She sighed once we were at the airport. 
"I know babe, I wish I could come with you." I said. She dropped all her stuff and kissed me, running her hands through my hair. I pressed her closed and pulled away what seemed like years later, the paps wildly taking pictures. 
"I'm guna miss that." I whispered. She looked up to me with tears falling down her face. Char said bye to the others giving them huge hugs. They wished her luck in her studies and told us they were going back to the car to give us some time alone. 
"Curly..." She sobbed, hugging and kissing me. I felt the silent tears falling down my face. 
"Don't cheat ok?" She whispered, her voice breaking multiple times. 
In response I backed up, knelt down on one knee and opened up the tiny velvet box that I had been keeping in my pocket.
