Bethany stared at her reflection in the mirror, her cheeks rosy and her blue eyes bright, and powdered makeup onto her face.

"Babe, hurry up," Harry whined, standing up from his seat on the edge of the tub to pull her away from the mirror. "You don't need all of that on your face."

"Yes, I do," she huffed. "We're going somewhere nice, and I'd like to make myself look decent."

"No matter how many times I tell you," he said under his breath, frowning, "you'll never believe me, will you?"

"No." She pulled out her favorite tube of cherry red lipstick, dabbed it on her lips, then rubbed them together.

"Okay, you're done." Harry pulled her hands away from her face as she tried to touch up her eyes. He looked down at his watch and exclaimed, "Let's go! We're going to be late for the movie!"

Bethany grabbed her purse and a light jacket -- because, according to the weather app she downloaded on her phone, the end-of-winter, beginning-of-spring weather could be chilly -- and they both rushed out the door to Harry's Range Rover parked in the front driveway.

"I really can't wait to see the movie," Bethany began. "I'm so glad we found out about it. The perfect movie in the perfect setting on the perfect day."

"Me too. I know how much you love Pride and Prejudice."

"And how much I love the day of love and how much I love you," she replied, smiling up at him.

"Mm, I know," he laughed, smiling back down at her.

Twenty-five minutes later, they sat down at the exclusive Shellpoint theatre, that served dinner and had plush couches replacing the regular movie theatre seats.

"This is so romantic," Bethany squealed lightly, almost bouncing up and down in her seat if it were not for her being in a public setting.

"There's practically no one here," Harry purred into her ear, making a shiver run down her spine, then through her whole body as he breathed against her skin.

"Harold Edward Styles, if you even--"

"Relax, sweetheart," he whispered. "I'm only joking. I know how much this movie means to you."

"Good," she said, scooting closer to him on their couch.

A posh-looking waiter walked up to them and said, "Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. Styles. Would you like something to drink?"

"Oh, we're not married," Bethany spoke, blushing furiously. One look at Harry, and she knew that the waiter saying that was no mistake.

"Yet," he said, loud enough for only her to hear.

"My apologies." The waiter nodded his head.

"But yes, we would like some drinks," Harry stated and picked the best wine off the menu the waiter handed to him.

 

"All of this looks so good," Bethany commented after the waiter left them with the dinner menu to get their drinks, "but I think I'll have the chicken parmigiana."

"I'll have the same thing," Harry decided.

"How romantic," Bethany cooed, looping her arm through his and entwining their fingers together.

"It's Valentine's Day, Beth. Of course I'm going to be romantic," he laughed, kissing her nose. "We could always make it more romantic and share a plate of spaghetti, like Lady and the Tramp did."

"Oh, and 'accidentally' eat the same noodle?"

"Yep." He winked.

The waiter --whose name they learned was Leo-- came back with two glasses of red wine, took their orders, and in ten minutes, brought them their food.

"The movie should start right about now," Harry said, taking a bite of his food.

"I'm really trying not to freak out," Bethany replied.

"I know, babe, I can tell."

All of a sudden, the lights dimmed and the big screen began playing the story of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy.

"That was so amazing!" Bethany squealed after the movie, walking out of the theatre.

"I'm glad you loved it," Harry chuckled, grabbing her hand tightly.

"What about you, Mr. Styles? Did you like it?" she prodded, poking his dimple.

"It was good. But it was even better with you practically on my lap."

"Charming." Beth rolled her eyes, tugging her jacket closer around her body.

"Isn't that how I got you? With cheesy pick-up lines?" He grinned.

"Shut up or you won't have me anymore," the short brunette joked, pushing him playfully.

"Then I guess I'll just have to win you back, won't it?"

"How do you plan on doing that?" she questioned.

"Sit down, and I'll show you." Harry pointed to the bench that seemed to magically appear out of nowhere.

She sat down hesitantly, looking around at her surroundings. They were across the street from the small theatre, in a small park, overlooking a small pond. Two willow trees stood guard beside the bench, casting a shadow on Bethany and Harry. She looked up through the branches and could see some light from the moon shining down.

When she looked back at Harry, he was seated at a keyboard, that literally appeared out of nowhere. Without warning, he began playing a song that Beth vaguely recognized.

 

"What would I do without your smart mouth?

Drawing me in, and you kicking me out

You've got my head spinning, no kidding, I can't pin you down
What's going on in that beautiful mind?
I'm on your magical mystery ride

And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright

My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine

You're crazy, and I'm out of my mind

'Cause all of me
Loves all of you,
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you're crying you're beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I'm around through every mood
You're my downfall, you're my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can't stop singing, it's ringing, in my head for you

My head's under water

But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh
Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we're both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it's hard
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you
I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh."

 

By the time Harry was finished, Bethany was crying. She stood up off the bench and ran to her boyfriend, wrapping her arms around his neck and kissing him firmly on the lips.

"I love you so much, Harry Edward Styles," she whispered against his mouth.

"I love you too, Bethany Anne Cantwell," he replied. "And someday, I'm gonna make you my wife."

 

(( Sorry about the spacing of the song; my computer hates me. And if you're wondering, the song Harry sang is "All Of Me" by John Legend. ))
