17. chapter seventeen

The cab pulled up at a 5 star hotel, and Harry's and I's mouth hung open. Dad paid the man in full cash before climbing out. I removed my hand from Harry's and both of us exited the car. The cab drove off once we had removed all our baggage from the boot. We followed dad through the revolving door and up to the front desk. 

 

Dads company had our room already booked and paid, so we were able to go straight up. We thanked Wendy once she handed us a key and we rode the elevator all the way to the top. 

 

We entered the penthouse in awe. I dropped my bags and ran straight to the deck, looking out and admiring the Sydney's city. Harry soon came out and wrapped his arms around me, taking me by surprise. "But dad..." I trailed off as he started kissing my neck. 

"He went out to grab some food. He said he would be back in an hour or so." He mumbled against my neck. As he sucked softly on a spot on my neck, I tilted my head back into the crook of his neck, and let out a small moan. He smiled against my neck before spinning me around and rested his forehead against mine. 

 

"I'm taking you out on a date." He grinned. 

"That's no way to ask a lady." I joked, placing my hands firmly on my hips. 

His face dropped and suddenly he looked angry. He grabbed both my hands and at that moment I knew he wasn't angry. "Katie Pierce, will you go on a date with me?" He warmly smiled.

"Yes." I grinned, wrapping my arms around his neck. I planted a soft kiss on his lips before walking back inside and grabbing the spare card shaped key off the counter dad had left me. 

 

Harry soon came up behind and followed me from the penthouse to the elevator. We stood in the elevator cuddling, and slightly swaying to the crappy elevator music which was sounding through the speakers. The door soon opened and an elderly couple wobbled in, standing slightly in front of us. The doors closed and soon we were heading down once again. 

 

Once the 'ding' sounded throughout the elevator and the doors opened, both us and the other couple stepped out. "Have a nice day." I smiled at them. "Have a good day to you too. And by the way, you have a lovely boyfriend there." She pointed to Harry. 

"Oh hes not my-" "Why thank-you." Harry interrupted me and pulled me closer to him once again, kissing my cheek. The elderly lady smiled before walking off with her husband, hand in hand. 

 

"Your cheeky Styles." I poked his side causing his to jump at my touch. 

"Oh, using the last names are we now Pierce?" he winked at me, causing me to laugh. 

 

"So where we heading?" I curiously asked Harry, entwining our fingers as we headed outside and down the sidewalk. 

"I was thinking a small coffee shop. But I don't exactly know where." He chuckled. 

 

I laughed before answering him. "Sure I'll show you one. We can go to my favourite one by the harbour." I dragged him in the direction of the small shop I used to visit when I was a child. In a matter of minutes we arrived and the fresh smell of bakery muffins filled my nostrils as we walked inside. We walked up to the counter and ordered a caramel latte for me, a cappuccino for Harry, and we got a choc chip muffin to share. We sat down by a window and memories from my childhood came flooding back into my mind. 

 

Harry and I made small talk as we waited for our order. After a little while, a waitress came and handed us our drinks and muffin. 

 

"Katie?" The waitress questioned me. Hold on, I recognised that voice. 

"Jenny?" I screeched, jumping up and giving her a huge hug. 

"Girl I've missed you so much. How you been!" She asked, removing herself from the hug and fixing her hair. I mirrored her actions. 

"Fantastic! Oh and girl this is Harry. Hes my-uh-" "Boyfriend." Harry stood up and shook her hand, I just smiled at him and then back to my best friend. 

"Daym Katie hes cute! Even cuter than Luke!" She mentioned, causing me to smile. 

"Speaking of Luke, how is he?" I quizzed her, knowing she would know. 

"Good. Hes dating Natalia. Remember her? She was that hot new chick at school?" 

"Must be pretty upset considering you had a crush on her." I joked.

"Oh shhh." She demanded, blushing. 

 

She was the best gay friend I ever had. 

 

"Oh, but most of your old friends from here are all pissed at you."

"What why?" I asked, shocked. By this time Harry had sat down sipping on his coffee, clearly uninterested on what we were talking about. 

"Because you promised to call them and you never did. But its fine you don't need them anyway. They have all turned into complete bitches." She shrugged. 

"Yeah I know. And sorry I didn't call you I lost my phone as soon as I got there." I explained. 

"It's all goods girl. Look I gotta get back to work, but here's my number and you have to call me this time girl. Bye." She cheered, handing me a piece of paper with her digits on it, and walking away. 

 

"Sorry about that" I apologetically looked at Harry who just smiled at me. 

"It's all good. You were just catching up." He smiled, lifting his hand up onto the table. I placed my hand on top of his and he softly rubbed his thumb on the top of my hand. 

 

"So, your my boyfriend huh?" I teased, smirking at him. 

"Well, yeah." He said proudly, sitting up straight. 

"Perfect."
