5. I'm captivated by you, baby, like a firework show.

 

{ANNA’s POV}

As I was walking back to the place where Andrew and I decided to meet, all I was able to do was to think about him. His face kept flashing in my mind – those green eyes, that cheeky smile that anyone could die for, those dimples. I couldn't block him out of my mind. Even when I closed my eyes, I kept thinking about him, I kept thinking about Harry.

Why?

It’s not like he is the first guy that I have rejected. Then why I can’t get his picture out of my mind? Why I am finding it so hard to let him go?

“Anna!! ANNA??” I heard my brother yell that snapped me out of my thoughts.

“What? Why are you yelling?”

“It’s time. We have to board the flight. Come on, let’s get going.”

“Oh! Ok. Let’s go.” We picked up our luggage and went to the door where two buses were waiting to carry the passengers. We quickly climbed in and sat at the front seat. As the bus started moving, I looked one last time at the airport. I won’t be back here before four month, which seems to be a long time for me. I have been to London before but this is L.A., and I love the heat, the beaches and the jolly surroundings. London is comparatively cold and unknown place, even though I have spent almost six years of my childhood over there.

The bus stopped and quickly climbed out and started walking towards the plane. As I started climbing the stairs, I realized that I will probably never see Harry again.

This was the first and the last time I ever saw him and I ruined it. I hurt his feelings, I was the reason why he just stood there staring at the ground, tears threatening to fall. But why does it matter to me about how he felt? I have never cared before about how others felt when I rejected them. All I cared was about me and only me because that is one thing that I have surely learned. All I cared was about keeping my heart safe, locked up so that no one could ever reach it. But still, today I felt guilty for doing something that I became habitual with. I felt guilty for turning down a guy.

I wish I could just meet him once and say how sorry I was. How I never wanted to hurt his feelings. How I was guarding my heart because I am afraid to open up. But I know that I would never meet him and will have to carry this guilt with me.

“Come on, Anna!! Move your feet faster. I am growing old here.” Andrew whined behind me.

“I was just wondering why you don’t have any wrinkles yet.” I said sarcastically, turning my head to give him a wink, while he just pouted.

I took out my ticket from my pocket and searched for my seat. Andrew had confirmed our seat so I was sure that they will definitely be somewhere at the last. He has always been a lazy person like me.

As I made my way to the back of the plane, I reached my seat but when I looked down I saw a guy wearing a beanie and was reading a newspaper, covering his face, sitting on the seat next to mine. I was about to ask the person to just check his seat number when I saw Andrew walk ahead of me and sit on the seat behind mine.

“Why are you sitting there? Aren't you supposed to sit beside me?” I confusedly asked.

“Anna, you know that I love you but sitting with you for fourteen hours didn't seem an amazing idea when you would be the one to enjoy the window seat and I have to sit outside missing the scenery. So I asked the agent to book two window seat. Now we both will be able to enjoy our ride.” He said with a smirk.

“You did what?” Uhh!! I literally wish I could slap that smirk off his face.

“I booked two different window seats for us. See I care for you so much, little sister.
” He was now grinning at me like an idiot and that’s when I heard someone cough behind me. I turned around to see who was that and saw a girl waiting to take her seat that was beside my brother’s. When my brother saw who was going to be his companion for next fourteen hours, his smile just got bigger. He is such an arse. Well, I could at least try to ruin his mood.

“Do you mind exchanging your seat with mine? It is just one seat ahead and is a window seat.” I asked the girl politely and giving myself a mental high five as I saw my brother’s smile drop. He started to protest but the girl replied before he could even say a single word.

“I am sorry but I don’t think that I will be able to sit at the window seat. I have a fear of height and I feel like puking whenever I look outside. I can’t take that seat in any case.” She said apologetically and sat down beside my brother, who was again grinning like an idiot. If this place hadn't been crowded, I would have surely kicked his arse.

I gave him a dirty look as I turned to my seat which, wondering how I am going to spend fourteen hours sitting beside a random guy. Last time I travelled, the guy sitting beside me kept snoring throughout the flight, while all I did was to listen to music because I wasn’t able to sleep. Just hope that this guy is not like that one.

I quickly kept my bag in the locker above and sat on my seat. Travelling in business class had its own benefit. It had enough space so that I could walk to my seat without disturbing the guy sitting beside me, who was still reading the newspaper or hiding behind it.

As the seat belt symbol lit, I quickly fastened my seat belt. I turned my head and saw that person beside me hadn't stopped reading newspaper.

“I have no clue about what you are reading or I must say whom you are hiding from but you are supposed to fasten your seat belt. The flight is about to take off.” I said to him. He looked up from his newspaper and my eyes landed on the face that has been haunting me since the last time I saw it.

Harry…. 

​​​​​He was the only one my mind was thinking about and now as I saw his face another wave of guilt hit me. He hadn't seen me yet as he was too busy fastening his seat belt.

He finally fastened his seat belt and as he looked up to thank me or at least that’s what I was hoping he would say, he froze as soon as he saw my face. He just kept starring at me and I did the same thing, our last meeting replaying in the back of my mind. I wanted to apologize but I couldn't spill even a single word out of my mouth. I wanted to say how sorry I was and I didn't mean to hurt him but all I did was to just stare at him.

As the plane started moving, I quickly pulled myself together and looked outside the window. This flight is going to be much worse than the last one. I kept looking outside until I heard a sound and looked up, straight ahead and saw the seat belt symbol unlit. So I removed my seat belt and looked at Harry just to find him staring at me. Was he staring at me all this time? I quickly looked away.

I was thinking of different ways to apologize to him, weighing my options and trust me they didn't look good I wanted to say sorry, remove the guilt but I just couldn't come up with any plan.

I checked the time, and I realized that I have been staring at the clouds for past one hour. It was getting really boring. All Harry did since last one hour was to randomly flip the channels of the TV and read newspaper. The silence between us was getting really awkward.

On one hand while my trip was being a bitch, my brother was fully enjoying his. He has been continuously talking to the girl beside him and from their conversation I could tell he was really enjoying his time. Well, at least one of us I having fun.

As I again leaned my head on the window and stared at the clouds which were no longer fascinating, I slowly started drifting to sleep, thinking of the person sitting beside me.

I woke up when I realized that some was shaking me. I pushed the hand way from my shoulder thinking it was my mum waking me up. But when I heard the person’s voice, the reality hit me and I opened my eyes just to close them again because of the lights. I finally decided to open my eyes and realized that I have been sleeping in an awkward position and now my neck had started to pain.

“Anna, the dinner is here. What do you want veg or non-veg?” Harry asked me.

“Umm... I.... am.... vegetarian.” I mumbled, still half asleep.

“One veg plate for the lady, please.” Harry said to the flight attendant. She quickly handed him the plate and move ahead. I took the plate from Harry and kept it in front of me. I looked at Harry, who was now unpacking his food.

“I am sorry, Harry.” My voice barely audible.

He looked at me with shock.

“I forgive you.” He said with a small smile on his face.

“You w-what? You forgave me? So easily?” I asked in complete shock. I wasn't expecting to be forgiven at all, let alone in one go.

“Yup. I forgive you.” He replied sincerely.

“Why?”

“Because I am very generous." 
​​
“Huh?”

“What I mean to say is that you might have rejected me once but you won't be able to do that again. You see, I'm irresistible." He smirked at me.​​

​"Really??" I asked raising my eyebrow and he nodded. 

​​​​​​"We will see, how irresistible you are, Harry."​​​​ ​​
​​​
​​​​​"Soooo... Lets start fresh." He said.

​"I'm Harry." He smiled as he brought his hand in front of me.

​"Anna." I said as I shook his hand.​​​
​​​​​​
​" So, ​​​​​​​Anna, would you like be my friend?” He grinned.

“It would be my pleasure.” I replied with a huge smile on my face.

As I looked him in the eye I found myself being captivated by him like a firework show.
