8. One day to go.

“Harry, I can’t. I can’t have the boys traveling around. They’re only young. It’ll be hard on them.” She said looking a little sad at me. “

As much as I would love too, I really can’t. I’m sorry.”

“I know. I’m sorry for putting you in that position. I understand.” I said a little upset.

“I’m sorry Harry. I hope you come back...” She said giving me a kiss.

“Of course I will come back. I love you.”

“I love you too Harry.” We ended up falling asleep.

Delilah’s POV.

I laid there for ages after Harry went to sleep. He thought I was asleep, but really I couldn’t.

I couldn’t stop thinking about what he said.

Should I go? I really can’t.

My brothers only home for another 2 weeks, and I’ve hardly hung out with him. I want to go, but I can’t. I really can’t take the boys. It would be hard on them. They’re only young. I know they’d love it, but I can’t do it too them.

I turned over, and just watched Harry sleep. He was so peaceful.

I watched his chest rise, and fall, is soft breathing, and every so often he let out a snore which made me giggle a little.

I laid down on his shoulder, and ran my fingers down his chest to the bottom of his belly button, and then back up to his chest until I fell asleep around 1:30.

Harry’s POV

I woke up to Delilah cuddled up on me.

I gently slipped out of bed, and went into the bathroom for a quick shower.

I stood under the shower for ages. Just letting the water run down my body. I got out of the shower, and grabbed my towel and start drying my hair as I walk back into the bedroom.


“Oh! Sorry! You were asleep when I went into the shower.” I said laughing.

“Even if I were still asleep, Xavier or Xander could have walked in, or even Louis, You would have given them an eye full.” She laughed.

“Hurry up and put some clothes on.” She continued.

“Yeah yeah.” I laughed while putting my skinny jeans on, and my white t-shirt.

“You’re so hot Harry!” She said staring at me.

“I know.” I winked as I leant over the bed to give her a kiss, but before I could give her a kiss, she hit me over the head with a pillow.


“You deserved it. Being so up yourself and all.” She said laughing at me as I grabbed another pillow, and hitting her with it.

“Harry!” She said glaring at me.

“You’re dead! She said jumping up on the bed, and hitting me with the pillow again.

“You have to catch me first!” I yell as I run around the bed with her following.

“Owe!” I laughed as she got me.

I turned around and grabbed her as we fell onto the bed with her on top. She leant down and started kissing me, I wrapped my arms around her, and then the door flew open.

“Muuum! Xavey wont let me play the xbox!”

“Oh Xander, go play the play station in the lounge room then.”

“But I want to play the xbox, and he’s been playing it for ages.”

“Oh. Alright.” She said getting up off me.

I just laid there as she left with the boys.

Just as I was about to get up, Liam came into the room.

“Hazza, How are you lad?” He asked.

“I’m fine.. Why?” I asked a little confused, as I sat up.

“Well what are you going to do tomorrow? We leave to go back to Melbourne tomorrow.. Have you spoken to Delilah about it?” he asked.

“Yeah, I have.” I said looking down.

“What she say?”

“She said she can’t come. She can’t just think about herself, she has the twins to worry about as well.” I said fidgeting with my hands.

“Well I’ve only known Delilah and the boys 1 day, but I think the boys would have so much fun with us. If she’s worried about school, we can get a tutor to tour with us.”

“I already suggested that Liam. She said she couldn’t come..” I said.

“I’m sorry Haz.”

“Liam..” I said as he started to get up of the bed.

“Yeah?” he said turning around.

“What do you think is going to happen when we leave Australia?”

“I don’t want to leave her.. I love her! I really do!” I said standing up.

“Harry, you really need to talk to Delilah about this. Maybe you could come to some sort of arrangement..” He said giving me a smile.

“Yeah maybe..” I said as we walked out of the room.

“Babe, I’m having a shower” Delilah said as Liam and I past her in the hallway.

“No worries.” I replied giving a fake smile.

I walked out into the lounge and everyone else was up too. Niall was doing a twit cam, Zayn was on the phone to Perrie, Louis was on a video call to Eleanor, and Preston was talking Dallas while watching Sunrise. (Morning news show), I just sat down on the couch and watched TV too.

Xander came into the lounge room, and sat next to me.

“Harry?” he said looking up at me.

“Yeah buddy?” I said looking down to him.

“I’m going to miss you when you leave tomorrow..”

“Oh Xander, I’m going to miss you too little man. You will have to skype me everyday with your Mum.” I said putting my arm around him. “And if you even just want to talk too me, you can always ring me or skype me. Anytime. I will always answer. I promise.” I said smiling too him.

“Thanks Harry!” he said standing on the couch giving me a hug.

Delilah’s POV

I stood in the shower for ages just thinking. It wasn’t until Xander came running in, he put the toilet lid down, and started talking to me.

”Mum?” He said as I washed my hair.

“Yeah baby?”

“Mum, I don’t want Harry to leave. I’m going to miss him..”

“I don’t want him to leave either baby.” I said. “I’m going to miss him too, but he has to leave. It’s his job.”

“Will he forget us?” He asked.

“Why would you think that?”

“I don’t know mum. Harry knows lots of people, he might forget about us..”

“I don’t think he’ll ever forget his little man.” I said trying to cheer him up.

“Will he come back?” he said a little sad.

“He said he would baby, Harry wouldn’t lie now would he.”

“I guess not.” He sighed as I stepped out of the shower wrapping the towel around myself.

“C’mon mate. Let’s go.” I said walking out of the bathroom.

I put on a pair of denim shorts, and I grabbed Harry’s purple Jack Wills hoodie that was sitting on the end of the bed, as I walked out of my room I grabbed my purple vans.

I walked into the lounge room, and jumped on the couch net to Harry.

“You know I love you right?” I said looking up too him as I laid down putting my head on his legs.

“You know you’re wearing my jumper right?” He laughed.

“Yeah, you weren’t wearing it.” I laughed too.

“I love you too by the way.” He said leaning down giving me a kiss. “You look so sexy in it anyway!” he whispered.

“Sexier then you!” I laughed.

I laid on the couch with Harry watching Louis and the boys play.

Harry’s POV.

As we sat on the couch, just catching, and laughing, I got thinking.

I was leaving tomorrow for a few months. I had to do something for Delilah. I had to do something special for her. This was going to be so hard considering we couldn’t leave the house.

Delilah got up to go to the toilet, so I thought I’d talk to the others about what I could do.

“Lads” I said looking around to them all, “And Casey” I said when I realized Casey was there too.

“I need some help. I want to make tonight really special, I want to do something for Delilah..” I finished.

They just sat there looking at me. I’m not sure why no one was answering me though.

“So..” I said. “Oh.. and we kind of can’t go any where.. Because of all the paps..” I added.

“Well.. I have an idea.. Kind of..” Casey said.


“Well when Delilah and I moved here, we used to leave the boys with my mum, and we used to just drive around town and try to find places. Places to be our safe place. Our little secret places. We found a few. But there was one that had a lake with an old board walk. It’s amazing. There’s like sand around the edge, so it feels like you’re at the beach, minus the waves.” She laughed. “The water is always warm too. We used to swim in it all the time.” She said. “We haven’t been there for a while though. So it may be a little over grown, as it was surrounded by trees..” she finished.

“That sounds perfect..” I said a little excited. “If there’s trees around, I can put solar fairy lights up. So they’ll need to be put up like, soon. I’ll get a table for two there as well, with Champaign, and dinner..”

“Rose petals too?” Louis asked.

“Yeah, them too!” I laughed. This is sounding amazing. Also guys, when we get home, is it okay if everyone not be up.. because I was thinking rose petals and lit candles all the way down to her room, all over the bed, and a full hot bath with candles and rose petals everywhere.” I said with a massive grin. “This has to be a surprise though guys.. So I’ll need your help to get things that way..”

“Happy to help!” Liam said.

“I can take the twins to my place. Mum will watch them, I can also show whoever where the lake side is..” Casey said.

“I’ll come with you to help set up there..” Dallas said smiling.

Niall and I can go with Casey and Dallas..” Liam added.

“That works.”

“I’ll be your waiter?” Louis asked.

“Yeah, okay. You have to be there before us, and leave once dessert has been served though..”

“Yeah. Of course.” He said with a shifty face.

“I’m serious Lou.” I laughed.

“Yeah yeah.” He said

“Alright, well Dallas and I will go get the.. stuff..” Casey said as Delilah walked back into the lounge room.

“Yeah, alright. See you later.” I said winking at them.

“Where are use going?” Delilah asked

“Oh, I’ve got to get some stuff for mum.” Casey said lying.. I think.

“Alright then. See you later.” Delilah said giving Casey a hug.

“Boys, you want to come too? We’ll go see Granny Johnston.”

“Yay!” The boys said jumping up.

I decided I wasn’t going to say anything to Delilah about tonight. I thought I might just wait until an hour before we have to leave, to get ready.

Delilah and I sat on the couch watching TV most of the day.

They guys came, and left a few times. Delilah asked them what they were doing, they just said things like they wanted to get out of the house, and what not. My phone rang a couple of times; it was only Casey just confirming things for tonight. I was so excited for tonight. I couldn’t wait.



“Yeah?” She said sitting up looking at me.

“I have a surprise for you. You have 1 hour to get ready. Wear something elegant, but comfortable.” I said looking at her with a smile.

“What are we doing?” She asked a little confused.

“It’s a surprise. Go on, go get ready.” I said smiling.

“Harry, I don’t like surprises!” She said looking at me funny.

“Trust me, you will love this one. Just hurry up and go get ready.” I said giving her a slight shove.

“Alright, alright!” she said laughing as she walked down to her room.

I grabbed my phone out, I thought I’d let the others know that everything was going to plan.

‘Everything is going according to plan.

Delilah has no idea.

She’s getting ready at the moment.’


‘Your lift will be there at 6:00pm on the dot.

No earlier, no later.’


I walked up to the room while Delilah was in the shower, and grabbed out some bikinis. For later, of course.

I grabbed a bag, and put a few little things in it.

Shorts, her bikini, and things like that.

I went into Dallas room to get dressed.

I decided to wear black skinny jeans, and a white dress shirt, with my black dress shoes.

I went back out to the lounge room to wait.

It took Delilah basically the whole hour to get ready, but when she finally came out she looked incredible!

“Oh my god!”

“What? Too much?” she said looking at me a little worried.

“No! It’s perfect!” I said looking her up and down.

She was wearing a black maxi dress, with a peachy colored jacket.

“You look absolutely stunning! I said.

“You scrub up pretty well too!”

“Oh well thanks!” I laughed.

I put my hand behind me and grabbed the scarf from my pocket.

“Okay, well.. You need to put this on..” I said holding it up.

“What? Why?” she said

“Because, I don’t want you too see anything.”

“Oh alright.” She laughed.

I put the blind fold on, and then there was a knock at the door.

“Harry! Don’t you leave me here with this on! Harry!”

“Don’t worry, I’m still here. Preston get the door!” I laughed.

“Good.” She laughed.

“Alright, hold onto my hand.” I said grabbing onto her hand.

I lead her outside, and then to the car.

“Alright, you’re hopping into a car now, so you know, bend and sit?” I kind of laughed.

“What! Harry, we can’t leave the house. You might get seen!” She yelled a little.

“No, it’s fine.” I said reassuring her. “Just hop in.”

She got into the car, and we drove about 30 minutes down the road, and into the National park.

We pulled up at her favorite spot, and the driver got out of the car, and opened the door. I turned to her

“Are you ready?” I asked her.

“Yes!” She said excited.

“Alright. Here goes..” I said helping her out of the car.

“Okay, 3..2..1..” and I pulled the scarf off her eyes.

“Oh! My! God! Harry!” She said looking down the rose petal path to the sandy lake side.

Her face said it all.
