47. The Queen
I opened the door, and the poor housekeeper looked a little worried; oh boy not again!“Rosa what’s the matter?!” She looked at me and then spoke out of nervousness:“Miss Lane, I hope you won’t mind if I took the day off tomorrow? (She sighed.) It will be just for tomorrow, please?” I looked at Rosa in confusion; I mean what could make her ask me such a request? Harry is her superior and not me, so how come she came over to me?! Wait, does she assume that since I moved here with Harry, I now get to do decisions as well? Wow…
“Rosa, I promise you that I will ask Harry tomorrow in the morning; but I can guarantee you from now that he will accept; so consider it as a yes. (She smiled, as I proceeded.) Oh and Rosa? (She nodded for me to go on.) Please, next time do ask Harry straight forward instead of me, I know he can be a little grumpy sometimes; but in the end he’s the boss, right?” The middle aged woman nodded and went downstairs skipping from her happiness. I didn’t like taking over in household decisions. I know that now, this is where I live; but still it feels wrong to take control, you know? I closed my door, shut my lights off, and rolled in a good night sleep.
…. The Next Day (During Breakfast)….
I sat with Harry while he had his breakfast, I really don’t like eating in the morning; but sometimes there are exceptional cases. “Come on Becky, eat something love.” I shook my head and smiled as I sipped water from my glass. “Harry? (He chewed and looked at me.) Um, Rosa came over last night, and she asked me if it’s ok with her to take a day off for today. Will that be fine?” He replied: “Of course! But why didn’t she ask me instead of going to you?” I shrugged because I really didn’t know the reason of that. “Maybe because you aren’t the queen of my heart only, you are the queen of this house as well.”He smirked as my cheeks flushed to the extreme; gosh he keeps on amazing me with his lovable comments!
“I’m going to go with my aunt for some quality time, is that acceptable?” He hesitated in his staring and then he spoke: “Baby you don’t need to ask me, but I can’t promise that I won’t miss you so much… (He sighed.)“ I kissed his cheek, and it made him light up a little.“I won’t be late I promise you, besides I called Louis so he can keep you company while I’m gone.” He smiled, and answered: “See? This is what I adore about you the most. You think of me before you think of yourself, why haven’t I met you a long time ago?” As soon as he finished speaking those remarkable words, he flung his lips over mine, and I giggled for a funny reason. “You taste like butter, Hehe.” He chuckled and kissed me again softly.
My phone rang, and it was a message that my aunt is waiting for me outside in her car. “(I stood up.) I have to go, if you need anything just call me cutey alright? (He nodded and I leaned down to kiss him deeply before I leave.) I love you.” He directly responded: “I love you more, have fun babe.” I nodded and walked out to meet my aunt.
