Remember Your Promise -Complete-

“Remember when you left without saying goodbye?” he asked.
“Yes” I replied sadly, remembering it like it was yesterday.
“Promise me you’ll never do it again.”
“I promise”

"Really?!"

I sighed, repeating myself for the third time, "Yes, Aubrey...really."

I was currently skyping Aubrey while we were on our way to another venue. "Well...let me see! I need proof!"

I threw my head back and groaned, "Harry!" I called from our 'room'. Seconds later he came sashaying into the room with a bag of popcorn at hand. He walked over to me, "Wha?" I grabbed the nape of his neck, pulling him to me and smashing our lips together. He smiled into the kiss and placed his free hand under my chin. The lasted a few more seconds until I realized that Aubrey was watching us. I pulled away and gave Harry a mischievous smile. "What was that for?" he chuckled. I averted my gaze to the side where the laptop was and he followed. "Oh, hey Aubrey" he said nonchalantly to an open mouthed Aubrey.

"Don't 'Hey Aubrey' me! Why hadn't anyone told me!" "I just did." "Bullshit KC!" she laughed. "Well you know now!" Harry exclaimed. He pecked me on the lips a last time and left the room. "You taste like popcorn" I called after him. "You better like it!" he teased. I giggled and went back to Aubrey.

"How long have y'all been dating?" "Officially? Like four days now." "Awe!" "When he asked me, it wasn't like this big triumphant moment, you know what I mean? It feels like old times and now that it's back, it made me realize how much I missed it." "You guys are too cute!" she exclaimed. "So what's up with your roommate and Jacob?" "Either they split in the next month or I'm moving out...swear!" "It's that bad?!" "Yes! Ok Ok don't tell Zayn but..."

I was so scared of what she was about to say next. Is it so bad that it'd affect their relationship? They're so perfect. She needs Zayn. Hopefully it isn't that bad.

"...the other day when he came over and Everlina was in the shower, he tried to...you know."

"He what?!"

"I-I was cooking and he came behind me held me by the waist, grinding himself into me. He kept saying 'You know you miss me' when I'd struggle away."

"Did you file a report?"

"No...I threw my stirring spoon at him" she mumbled, laughing a bit.

I couldn't help but smile. "Let's just say, there's a huge burn on his cheek."

"That's my girl. But...if it happens again, tell me OK. You especially have to tell Zayn and if you don't, I will" I sternly spoke. She nodded her head in understanding. "I miss you Aubs." "Miss you too KC."

"OK OK, time for room arrangements" Louis announced as we waited in the hall of our new hotel.

"I'm with Zayn and Liam. Lou and Lux are in the other one across the hall. Harry is down the hall..."

"Where am I?" I asked, offended that he completely forgot about me. He smirked, "I'm glad you asked KC. You, love, will be staying with Hazza over here." My eyes widened and and face tinged when some of the boys snickered. I shook my head to get the thoughts of what they were thinking out of my mind.

Harry's POV:

Cheeky bastards.

I carried mine and Karmen's bags to our room while the others were already in there's. Why'd they put us down the hall? Karmen swiped the key card and opened the door, stepping aside so I'd walk in first. I mumbled a 'thanks' and set the bags next to the bed. She pounced on it and buried her face into it, "I'm so tired" she muffled through the pillow. "Same" I replied and laid next to her, draping my arm around her waist.

"Lucky you, you don't have to work tomorrow" I complained. She giggled and turned her face towards me, "I think being surrounded by you guys 24/7 is enough work." I smiled and kissed the tip of her nose, "We're not that bad." "Tell that to my bras that you 'accidentally' filled with pudding and 'accidentally' froze." I laughed, "You have to admit, that was hilarious!"

She frowned and turned on her side, away from me. I pulled her into me, her back against my chest. "Aw, come on baby don't be that way" I murmured into her ear. "I liked that bra" she jokingly pouted. "We can always buy you more" I mumbled against her skin as I placed kisses down the back of her neck. She softly whimpered...yes! Styles always wins.

The next day was rehearsals and no...I didn't want to go. Karmen was in the shower while I was finishing buttoning up my shirt. The water cut off and I waited for her to come out. She wasn't coming with us today and I didn't want to leave her here without saying goodbye. I sat at the edge of the bed and logged onto twitter as I waited.

A few minutes passed when I hear the bathroom door open. I see Karmen step out with one of my large button up shirts on and it's pretty translucent. I can practically see the detail of her underwear set. I rise from the bed and walk to her, taking hold of her waist. "What are you gonna be up to while I'm gone?" "Well, I'm going to the mall with Lou and Dandy later."  "What else do you need" I laugh, "you have a shitload of clothes." "You'll see" she giggled.

We stood there for a few seconds. I pressed my lips to her forehead, ready to say good bye but she spoke before me.

"Harry?" she spoke as she smoothed the surface of my shirt. "Hmm."

"I wanna be with you tonight." I smiled, "You're with me every night. Last night, the night before that..." I said, laughing at her silliness. She shook her head, smiling. "No, I wanna BE with you tonight."

My eyes widen and I harshly gulp at the realization, "Um..." She abruptly pulled by my collar to make my face level with hers. "Hurry home" she whispered against my lips before placing the most soft and teasing kiss to them. She slowly moved to my ear, gliding her hands down my torso and resting them on my hips, "I'll be waiting." She proudly walked away and placed herself on the bed, typing away on her phone. As if nothing she just said happened.

***

I was out of it all day at rehearsals. Karmen's words never leaving my mind.

Hurry home.

Was she kidding? She had to be kidding...right?

We were on brake and I just stared at my phone, trying to decide whether I should message her or not. I'm so confused.

"What's going on mate, you seem a bit dazed."

dazed beyond belief

"Liam...I...um..."

I couldn't even get a coherent sentence!

"Wha?" he asked, sitting next to me and giving me a worried expression.

"I-I think...I think Karmen wants to have sex" I blankly reply, still staring at my phone.

There's silence so I look up to Liam and see a smug expression on his face, "And you're complaining because..."

"I-I don't know. After everything that's happened to her...I just...I don't know" I sighed, rubbing my hands over my face. Liam's face brightened as if he got a clue. "You're nervous!" he 'confirmed'. "What? No!" "Yeah, you are! You haven't had a descent girlfriend since Karmen, and what was what, five years ago? Between time you never had a relationship...or meaningful sex might I add. Harry! This is like your first time all over again!"

He was being entirely too loud, "Shut up, Li." He ran onstage with his mic and I knew exactly what he was gonna do, so I chased after him. "Harry's getting laid tonight!" he yelled through he mic. I jumped on him, trying to get the mic out of his hand, "Quit it!"

We were on the ground struggling for the mic. I took it away but he soon snatched it back. "Harry's gonna get some...and live while he's young!" "Liam!" "KC's gonna rock him, rock him, rock him yeah!" he kept going as he pushed me away with one arm and held the mic to his mouth with the other. I saw Louis run onstage and take the mice from him. Thank you!

"Harry's getting laid tonight. I repeat, Harry is getting laid tonight" he spoke through the mic as if he were a helicopter pilot. "Damn you Lou!" I exclaimed as I chased after him.

I'm exhausted. We had to stay at the arena for a few extra hours. Plus we got mobbed by fans. It's almost midnight and I just wanna lay down.

I swipe the key card, the light flashes green before letting me in. It's completely silent and fairly dark. I've known Karmen for a while and I know she hates the dark. I walk a bit further into the room, trying not to trip over anything. There's a glow that grows brighter with every step. I finally come across our bed and my heart breaks a little, guilt hitting me.

There were candles lit, almost fading out. The room smelt of roses and I saw some petals scattered across the floor. I see Karmen in a VERY daring set. With swirls of black and pink. She lays there, on her side, fast asleep.

I slide off my shoes and shirt. Quietly, I walk to my bag, pull out some joggers and change into them. I slowly walk around the room, blowing out the dim honey scent of the candles and pick up sweet petals. I climb into bed beside her, pulling the blankets over us as I pull her towards me. I kiss the bridge of her nose and wrap my arms around her, not willing to let her go. I close my eyes and breathe in her fresh scent.

She definitely prepared for this and leave it to my stupid work schedule to mess it up. She put effort into this...to make this special and I only had to show up. I couldn't even do that. 

"You're late" she mumbled against my chest, clearly half asleep. "I know, baby, I'm sorry." I spoke softly, trying to lull her to sleep. Moments later I could hear her soft snores return, telling me she fell asleep. I smiled at the fact that I finally had her wrapped in my arms.

She kept me warm as she had her arm around my torso and her face in my chest. It was bare, besides the necklace that I wore...the one that held my promise. It hurt to remember the day she tore it from around her neck and watched it drop to the ground. She never mentioned it again. I wonder if it's because she was also hurt by the memory or...she no longer cared. No matter what, I always will and I'll always lover her.

A/n: He's late, he's late, for a very important date. Important indeed ;-)
