19. Normality

CHAPTER SEVENTEEN

Normality

And so it seemed that life was finally falling into a pattern of normality that we all learned to love. Mornings were spent at the studio, rehearsing and recording. Afternoons were a flurry of packing and making arrangements. And nights...nights were family time. 

And I would not have had it any other way. 

–❈–

"Alright, give it up."

"Give what up?" I say turning to look at Louis pointedly as I finish serving everyone their dinner.

"You are obviously making up some kind of excuse in your mind to avoid seeing Edie."

"I am not."

"Have you seen her lately?"

"No."

"Weren't you going to talk to her after the hearing?"

"I did."

"And?"

"We...spoke."

"About your relationship?"

I sigh loudly, "No."

"Harry! There's a week left til we leave, are you really going to leave things like this until you come back? Mate, she may not even wait for you if you don't express an interest in her."

"Give it a rest, Louis."

"I'm only trying to help."

"Louis?"

"Yeah?"

"Do you really want to help?"

"Yes!"

"Then shut up!"

He looks at me wide eyed as I grab my plate and Emma's and head into the dining room. 

"Alright, Emma here is your pasta!" I say placing the plate in front of her.

"Passssta!!!" She exclaims, already dipping her hand into the sauced noodles and slurping them into her mouth. 

"Princess, you eat with a fork." Niall says, calmly wiping off her mouth and hands and finally placing a fork in her pudgy hand.

"Thanks, mate." I say as I sit down on the other side of Emma. 

"So..." Liam says as he takes a drink from his glass, "Have we talked to Edie yet?"

"Bloody hell, will you leave me alone?"Everyone looks up as I grab my plate and get up, "I've lost my appetite."

As soon as I reach the kitchen, Niall comes in after me and crosses his arms as I try to get out. 

"You're not going anywhere."

"Get out of my way, Niall."

"Harry, you're being a brat."

"Niall."

"Listen." He motions to the small table and I sit as he leans on the counter, "If you don't want to date Edie, then don't. If you, then find a way to make it work. But don't just leave her hanging like this while we leave for six months."

"Niall, i'm not leaving her hanging."

"Then?"

"I've called her five times since last week. She won't take my calls."

"Oh."

"Exactly."

"Well, why don't you go see her?"

"And say what? I'm leaving in a week, but we should date when I come back?"

"Be honest."

I sigh, "Alright."

"We good, mate?"

"Yeah, i'm sorry i'm such a bloody brat."

Niall chuckles as we walk back into the dining room, "Alright, let's get back to eating."

–❈–

After dinner, the conversation with Niall convinced me that I should at try to have the pending conversation with Edie. As soon as the boys assure me they'd be fine with Emma, I hop in the car and make my way to her house.

Thoughts run through my mind. Should I? Should I not? The whole case with Emma was over. Would it be that terrible to date Edie?

But then, this isn't only about me.

Would it be fair to Emma? To let her get attatched to someone she won't be able to see half the year? What if we break up? What if it doesn't work out?

As I park in front of her house, I wonder if I should even go talk to her. 

No. She deserves a talk at least. An explanation as to why we shouldn't be together...right?

"Harry?"

I look up to see Edie's face through my window.

"Hi." I say rolling down the window.

"Harry? What are you doing here?" she shifts the grocery bag in her hands and nods towards the door, "Do you want to come in?"

Here goes nothing.
