I have to admit, it was good being back home. It's funny how I now call London home, and Australia just somewhere where I visit. At least my Stomach virus was gone I thought.


I drained all my effort carrying my bags up to my room again, I really couldn't be bothered getting ready for Harry and I's date tonight. But after laying dead on my bed for a good half hour, I pushed myself up, and dragged myself to the shower. Maybe that will wake me up a bit I thought. 


I lazily got undressed and turned the shower on, before plugging my Iphone into a speaker, blasting music. Once I stepped inside the shower, I was an international popstar! I was singing Teenage Dirtbag at the top of my lungs, before i heard a sudden knock at the door. I peeped my head round the glass wall, before calling "who is it?" 

"It's dad sweetie. Are you alright? It sounds like a cat is dying in there." he chuckled from outside the door.

"Daaaad." I whined, joining in the laughter. 

"Look I have to go into work now, will you be okay home alone?" He asks. I finished washing all the soap off my body and turned the water off, walking out of the steamy shower to wrap a towel around my body. I opened the door fully and shivered at the sudden air change from hot to cold, before walking to my room. 

"Yeah dad I'll be fine. I'm going over to Harr-"

"Harry eh?" my dad cocks an eyebrow up, giving me a weird look.

"Well just as friends of course!" I piped up, turning my back to him and mentally slapping myself. 


Geez that was close.

"Don't worry you don't have to lie to your old man Katie. I may be old but I wasn't born yesterday." he chuckled, causing me to turn around to face him again.

"How did yo-"

"Know? Simple. Harry ran to the airport to find you. And when he couldn't find you, he bought a ticket to Sydney, because he remembered you telling him that was where you were from when we first moved here. And all throughout Sydney you two were glued to each other, sleeping in the same bed. And I never once heard Harry shower by himself with you in my sight, so either he is very smelly or-"

"Okay dad, I get it." I laughed nervously.

"Sweetie, I'm not here to tell you not to be with him, its clear to me that you love him, I'm just here to warn you that I know teenage boys. They are always up to know good." 

"Yeah, but Harry is different." I explained. 

"I hope so kiddo. You two are very cute together. The way youse secretly hold hands, or smooch each other when you think I'm not looking. Ah, reminds me of my young days-" 

"Okay dad you can leave now. Thanks for the chat. But you have to work now bye." I quickly rambled, wanting to get out of this awkward conversation. Dad just laughed, and I think he nearly wet himself. 

"Love you kiddo." Dad smiled, once he calmed down, but still had that ridiculous smirk plastered on his beard covered face. He placed a small kiss on my forehead before disappearing out of my room. 


"Oh My God" I mumbled, sitting down on the edge of bed, covering my face with my hands.
