Kiss Me Slowly

I was best friends with Niall Horan and was like a little sister to the rest of the boys in One Direction. But that was it. A little sister. That was all he would see me as. He as in the curly haired one. The one with the dimples and the four nipples. He as in the guy I'm in love with.


31. So Sudden

Dylan's POV

"HARRY!" I shouted as I spotted his curly hair and ran over to him. He spun around as he heard he and made his way to me.

"Dylan!" He lifted me up and spun me around before putting me down and placing a kiss on my forehead.

It has been four months since I last saw Harry and here I was in London airport, standing in front of the man that I've been through so much with this year.

"I've missed you." He nuzzled his face into my neck.

I giggled. "Me too Harry."

I looked around to see cameras and paparazzi and girls everywhere. I didn't even see them just now and suddenly they were all crowded around us.

"Uh Harry" I whispered, still hugging him.

"Yeah babe" He replied back softly.

"Can we leave now? It's getting a bit crowded and I kinda want you to myself."

I felt a grin play on his mouth. "I can't wait" He winked and let me go and grabbed my suitcase as we made our way to his car with people following us.

Once we were in the car, he glanced over at me as he drove back to his apartment. 

"What?" I asked.

He laughed. "Can't I look at you? I haven't seen you for four months."

I changed the subject. "So are you glad the tour's finished?"

He shrugged. "I'm still not used to it yet. There's nothing to do now except relax and it feels a bit odd. Do you know what I mean?"

I nodded. "Well you have me now." I batted my eyelashes and leant forward to kiss him on the cheek as he stopped at a red light.

We reached his apartment and he helped me bring my bags inside. He handed me his keys and I opened the door. As I was about to step in, I heard a rustle and suddenly a shout.

"SURPRISE!" Niall, Louis, Liam, Zayn, Eleanor, Jadyn, Perrie and Liam's new girlfriend Sophia jumped up.

I dropped my bags and stood there frozen as I heard Harry laugh from behind me.

"Aren't you glad to see us?" Niall winked and gave me a huge hug. "Nice for you to be back Dyl! We missed you!"

I hugged him back tightly before smacking him on the arm.

"Ow!" He said dramatically. "What was that for?"

"You know I hate surprises!" I laughed and hugged him again. "I missed you guys too!"

I made my way to the rest of the boys and their girlfriends. "Thanks guys" I smiled. "I've missed you guys a lot!"

Louis pulled me into a group hug and everyone joined in. 

"Guys guys, you're squishing me" I mumbled from the middle and they all laughed and let go.

I said hi to Zayn and Perrie and congratulated them on their engagement since I couldn't go to the premiere to find out the news.

El ran over to me and hugged me. "Dyl!" She squealed. "I've missed you! I haven't seen you in ages! What's up?"

I laughed and told her about school and my new life and she told me about what she'd been up to. After a nice chat, we went to join Louis and I grabbed a drink from the kitchen.

Liam walked over to me with a pretty girl next to him. "Dyl, I want you to meet my new girlfriend. This is Sophia. Sophia, this is Dylan."

I smiled and gave her a hug. "Nice to meet you."

"You too Dylan, I've heard a lot about you." She replied.

I looked over at Liam who looked very happy. I was glad he found someone after Danielle. He seemed down for a while.

We chatted for a little bit before being joined by Eleanor, Jadyn and Perrie as the boys all jumped on Harry's couch in the living room, chatting about life.

After a while, we joined the lads and I sat next to Harry. He put his arms around me and kissed me on the forehead.

I looked up at him to see a smile on his face. 

"What?" I asked and laughed. "Why are you smiling so weirdly?"

"I'm just glad you're here" He replied. "Things are finally good again."

"They are, aren't they?" I said before sighing. "But I have to go back to school and what's going to happen-"

Harry interrupted me. "Dyl, you only just got here. Don't think that far ahead." He chuckled. "We'll make it work, I promise."

I nodded and we sat in silence as everyone around us were in a deep conversation about Louis' recent charity soccer game.

Suddenly Harry placed his hands on my face so I turned to face him.

"I love you Dyl" He said softly.

"I love you too Harry." I replied and kissed him quickly, trying to do it without getting noticed by the others.

Sadly, that failed and they all whistled. Well, mainly Louis.

I buried my head in Harry's lap as they laughed and Harry's face turned red.

"Come on!" Niall changed the subject. "Where's the food?"

I sat back up and threw a cushion at him. "You're still a pig I see." I said and he fake pouted before returning to his serious face again.

"No seriously, where' the food?" He asked and everyone turned silent.

"Wait, did no one order food? Zayn asked and we all burst into laughter except Niall.

"Let's go out for dinner." Jadyn suggested. "Like old times."

"That's a good idea!" Perrie said and Zayn nodded.

We all agreed and separated into different cars before meeting at a nice Italian restaurant where the paps were crowding around us. 

We quickly walked into the restaurant and I looked back to see cameras flashing through the window. Once we were seated, we all talked about the tour and a few pranks the lads played on their team. I sat there with Harry's hand on my thigh, thinking about how much we'd all been through this year.

I knew that I loved Harry and wanted to be with him. My mind flashed back to that day on the bus with Niall.

"Dyl, it's not even worth it." He said to me.

"Yeah yeah, I know Niall, but... I just really like him."

I smiled to myself at that thought, and at where I was now. Everything was finally good, and I was happy.


Harry's POV

Throughout this whole dinner, all I could think about what the black box inside my pocket. Should I do it? Zayn had and now they were happier than ever. I had told Louis about my plan and he had been very supportive. My mum and Gemma were happy that I had finally found the one. I was doing my best to hide the nerves inside me. I knew Dylan loved me and I was happier than ever, but would she marry me?

We ate our dinner as Louis started telling everyone the time when I slept walk into the lobby of our apartment. 

"Hey!" I said to him. "That was private!" I whined.

He laughed. "Sorry mate, I think Dyl should know, since you're about to-" 

He stopped himself when he realised what he was about to say. My eyes widened as I stared at him angrily. Everyone on the table had stopped talking and was looking at us.

"About to what?" Dyl asked.

I looked at her. "U-uh." I stuttered, not knowing what to say.

Louis coughed. "A-about to be staying with Harry, Y-you know, since she's living with him while she's here." He covered up his slip up and everyone laughed and nodded.

A relief came flooding through me. "Yeah" I pretended to laugh. "Hey sorry about this, but Louis do you want to go to the bathroom?"

Eleanor laughed. "You're such a girl Styles." She joked.

Louis stood up and we walked over to the bathroom. Once we were out of sight and alone in the corridor, I smacked his arm.

"What was that about mate!" I hissed.

He chuckled. "Don't worry man, I covered for you. And it was my best work!"

I rolled my eyes. "Don't do that again! I'm stressing over here!"

Louis laughed. "Why are you so nervous mate? You love her and she loves you. Dude, it's now science, the whole world knows."

I groaned. "What if she's not ready, you know?"

"Then she's not." He shrugged. "Look the worst that could happen is that she says no and dumps you."

I glared at him. "You're a shit friend, you know that?"

He laughed again. "I love you too mate, now let's go back and eat. I'm hungry."

We made our way back to the table and I sat back down.

"You ok?" Dyl whispered in my ear and I nodded.

We continued eating as Louis continued his sleepwalking story of me. I decided now that I was going to do it. I had to do it. Grow some balls Styles! You love her and she's the best thing that's ever happened to you!

As our dessert was served, I decided that now was the time. I cleared my throat. "Uh, everyone, can I say something?"

Louis' eyes widened when he realised that I was about to do it. "EVERYONE SHUT UP!" He shouted and immediately everyone went quiet. "Harry would like to say something." He said quietly and everyone's eyes turned to me.

"You ok Styles? You look like really nervous for some reason." Liam said to me.

I coughed. "Um, yeah, yeah I'm fine." I looked at Dylan next to me who was looking quite confused. I stood up and pushed my chair in. I turned her chair outwards so there was nothing between us, before reaching into my pocket.

I got on my knee as I heard gasps around the table. Dylan, who had caught on, had her mouth wide open in shock.

I took a deep breath. "Dylan Tessa Madden," I started. "We've been through so much this past year and I love you so so so much." I paused and looked into her eyes. "I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?"

There was silence everywhere and the restaurant had all stopped what they were doing to turn and look at us. I could see from the corner of my eye camera flashes from outside the window.

Dylan just sat there in shock, and looked frozen. "Uh" She stuttered.

My heart was pounding faster and faster as I was still kneeled on the ground. Why isn't she saying yes? Shit! This was a horrible move. I could already see the headlines in the news tomorrow.




I shook out of my thoughts and cleared my throat, looking up and searching for the answer in her eyes.

"Dyl?" I said quietly, trying to sound as calm as I could.

"H-harry" She spluttered. She looked around at everyone who was waiting for an answer. "I-I" She hesitated. "I-I need a moment!" She blurted out and stood up before running out the door.

I couldn't care less about how this whole thing looked. Sure, it was pretty embarrassing. All my friends, not to mention, everyone in the restaurant witnessed her turning down my proposal. And the paps probably already had thousands of photos of this. 

Louis came over and helped me up. He pat me on the back. "I'm sorry mate" He said sympathetically. I kept my eyes on the ground, trying not to burst into tears. Suddenly, something came over me and I ran out the door after Dylan. I had to know what was going on, I just had to.


Dylan's POV

Once I ran out the door, the cameras all pointed at me and started snapping away. Paparazzi were yelling at me asking about what just happened. I couldn't see properly with all the flashes going off and ran as far as I could until I reached a small park.

Suddenly, when I saw no one was around, I fell to the ground and started crying hysterically. Why was I crying? Shouldn't I be happy? The love of my life just asked me to marry him. What was wrong with me!

I tried to take deep breaths as I recovered from my sudden outburst. Why didn't I say yes? It was all just so unexpected. So strange and sudden. I was only 19 and Harry wasn't even 20 yet. Weren't we a bit to young to get married?

After Harry asked me, I just felt so pressured and overwhelmed. I didn't know what to say. Shit, he probably thinks that I hate him. 

I wiped my tears with my sleeves and sniffled. I really loved Harry, but I just couldn't get married now. I hadn't even finished school yet. And he was in the world's biggest boy band. We both had different lives. We didn't even live together.

I slowly got up and looked back at the restaurant in the distance. I took a deep breath. I should probably go back, otherwise they would be worried. I was about to walked back when I saw someone in the distance. I squinted to see Harry making his way to me.
