Still Mine

What if someone said something to you, trying to discourage you from following your dreams. Would you give up on that dream? Or would you follow that dream and prove them wrong. What if the person who tired to discourage you came to an event of your dream that is now reality and tried to win you back?

My name is Olivia Wilson, and I know what I'd do.

Chapter 39

Liv’s POV

“Harry, how long is this going to take?” Anne laughed as she continued opening the present from Harry.

“Just keep going, you’re almost done,” Harry smiled.

Harry had given Anne her present in a big box filled with smaller boxes, and Anne had to open all of them until she got to the last box, which held her present. Box after box, Anne kept opening to reveal yet more boxes.

“How many boxes did you use?” I asked Harry.

“A lot,” he answered and laugh cheekily, obviously proud of the way he wrapped the presents, and his ability to find so many different sized boxes.

“Aha,” Anne said, “I got it,” she was holding up the last box filled with tissue paper.

She took out the coloring paper, and opened up the tiny envelope that was at the bottom.

“Thank you Harry,” she said as she looked at the gift card he gave her.

“You’re welcome,” he said and smiled his cheeky smile.

“I don’t think the way you wrapped it was necessary though,” she told him.

“I know, but it was fun,” he said and she rolled her eyes at him before getting up to give him a quick hug.

“Okay who is the next present for?” Niall asked as Anne grabbed another present from under the tree.

“Its for Theo,” Anne read the tag and handed it to Greg who was holding Theo in his lap.

“Hmm, wonder who its from,” Niall said, holding back a smile.

Greg looked at the tag, “Its from you, you dope,” Greg joked as Niall let out his laugh.

Greg put the bag in front of Theo, who hit at the tissue paper as Greg helped him open it. Soon he took out small white one-piece pajamas for Theo. Greg and his wife laughed once they saw the front of it, whereas the rest of us only saw the back.

“C’mon show everyone,” Niall said, and Greg turned around the one piece to reveal the front.

‘I Heart Niall Horan’ was written across the front in big black letters along with a red heart with Niall’s face in it. Everyone burst into laughter once they saw it.

“That’s so cute,” I said as Greg set it back down.

“You should change Theo into it now,” Niall said. “I will tonight,” Greg said and set the baby pajamas on the ground next to him with the other few gifts he’s gotten so far.

“Next present?” Harry said as his mum grabbed one and read the name.

“The next present is for you Harry,” Anne said and handed Harry the gift.

I noticed the wrapping and saw that it was my gift to Harry.

“Oh its from Liv,” Harry said cheerfully as he looked over at me, then back to the present.

I began to feel my palms start sweating in nervousness as Harry started to tear the wrapping paper. I was really hoping he would like it. I couldn’t think of a reason why he wouldn’t like it, but I was scared there might be one.

He took the wrapping paper off, to reveal the box that the watch came in. His eyes went a bit wide as he saw the logo. He looked over at me again, and I gave him a look telling him to open it.

He opened the box, and the smile on his face was priceless.

“Thank you so much Liv,” he smiled with his eyes lit up as he pulled me into a hug.


We opened presents for around forty-five more minutes, everyone getting presents and their reactions being different each time. Harry did the trick with the boxes to almost everyone, to which we have now banned him from doing that ever again. The only present I had gotten so far was from Niall. He gave me some money, and a shirt with the same design that was on Theo’s one piece.

There was one present left under the tree, and when Anne said the name, I was a bit upset when it wasn’t for me. I knew I wasn’t going to get a bunch of gifts, although I did expect to get one from Harry, I only got a gift from Niall.

Anne handed the last gift to Gemma, and the present was from Harry’s stepdad. She opened the bag, and took out a couple of new shirts and a pair of jeans. She thanked him with a hug, and put the clothing back in the bag.

“Well it seems that’s all the gifts,” Anne said.

“Liv I’m sorry you didn’t get many gifts this year, if we’d known you were coming we would have bought you tons of gifts,” my aunt said and laughed.

“Don’t worry about it, I’m just happy you get to see all of you again,” I said, and every smiled.

“Lets go put up our gifts, then we can eat dinner,” Harry said, and everyone got up to go to their rooms.

“It was really stupid of you to not give Liv a gift,” I Niall quietly whispered to Harry, although I still heard it.

“Shut up I got her one,” Harry whispered back.

“You better have,” Niall said, then I noticed the two of them walking up next to me.

We put everything at the side of the room, and then walked out to join everyone in the dining room. “Liv can you help me bring out all the food?” Harry asked, and I nodded and got up from my chair to follow him into the kitchen.

“Are you enjoying your Christmas so far?” Harry asked as he got out some food from the fridge.

“Yes of course,” I answered.

“I just wanted to thank you again for that watch, you really didn’t need to get me that.” he told me as he set a dish down on the counter.

“Well I wanted to get it for you,” I said.

“You’re amazing, did you know that?” he stopped taking food out of the fridge and stood in front of me.

“I’ve been told,” I answered, and stood on my toes as he leaned in to kiss me.

It felt as if we were in our own little world when we kissed. The kiss didn’t last as long as we would’ve liked, because we were interrupted,

“Hey love birds, we are getting pretty hungry out here,” Gemma said and we pulled back.

“Gemma,” Harry groaned in complaint.

“Sorry,” she giggled and went back into the living room.

“Sorry about her,” Harry said, and picked up the dishes of food he had taken out from the fridge.

“It’s okay,” I told him, and picked up the other dish along with the plates and utensils, and we brought them out to the dining room.

“Well it took you long enough,” Niall said as he took the foil off of the mash potatoes.

“They were busy kissing,” Gemma teased, and Harry lightly hit her arm and I felt my cheeks burning, and they were probably as red as they’ve ever been.

Every laughed and made ‘ooo’ noise, and the occasional ‘aww.’

“Can we just eat?” Harry eventually asked.

“Yes of course, we just think you and Liv are so cute,” Anne said and smiled, and this time I think Harry’s cheeks were as red as mine.


By time we finished eating, it was getting pretty late. Harry, Niall, and I went ahead and washed the dishes while everyone else stayed in the dining room and chatted. Once we finished washing the dishes, the three of us went back in the dining room and talked with them for a bit longer.

“Well we ought to head to bed now,” Niall said, and everyone agreed as we all got up.

“Are you ready for bed Theo?” Niall asked as we all walked out of the dining room, and Theo shook his head no.

“Well you need to go to bed or else Santa won’t come,” Harry said, walked up next to Greg’s wife who was holding Theo.

Theo made a sound that sound like he was excited, and then started laughing, which made everyone laugh along with him.
