21. Fun part 2
After eating our amazing sandwiches Harry made me drive. He was following directions from his phone.
"Turn left here." He said and I turned left. We kept driving until we were at a little carnival. It was about 5 now. I parked the car and looked at him.
"The carnival, huh?" I asked him. "Very original." I joked.
"I was hoping so." He teased back but seemed kind of hurt.
"I'm glad you brought me here." I said quickly. "I can't remember the last time I was here. I'm excited." I looked out the front mirror and at the carnival. It really did look like fine.
"I'm glad you're happy. Now.." He muttered to himself and got out of the car as I grabbed my bag from the back I turned around and noticed he was opening the door for me. Once he had it open he undid my seatbelt and offered me his hand. He had a big smile on his face and I giggled. "There's my favourite sound." He said in a quiet voice. I shook my head and took his hand. He helped my out of the big car and closed the door. I locked it with the keys and gave him his keys back. "Keep it with you." He smiled. I put it in my bag and we walked to the front entrance. I stopped and looked ahead. There was so much colour and laughter here. "Are you okay?" He asked as he placed his hand on my back.
"Yeah." I smiled widely as I kept looking at the rides and all. We walked in and the first ride Harry wanted to go on was the bumper cars. So we waited in line and had a small chat. Once it was our go we got into separate cars and the ride began. I drove around and smashed into Harry's car. I laughed as did he.
"Game on!" He called out to me. We kept bumping into each other and enjoying ourselves. Once the ride was over I got out of the car, flung my bag over my shoulder and a girl came running up to me.
"You're so pretty! Are you and Harry dating?" She asked. A fan no doubt. I giggled.
"No, we're not. We're just friends." I smiled at her. She smiled back at me.
"Is it possible if you could convince him to take a photo with me?" She pleaded. I nodded and she squealed. Harry then strolled up to me and waved at the girl.
"Harry." I said and he looked at me. "May you please take a photo with this wonderful fan?" I asked. He smiled at me looked at the girl and nodded his head. He looked so happy. They took a photo together and she giggled as she ran off. He looked back at me with a smile but he looked slightly irritated. "Another ride then?" I smile. He nods his head and briefly places his hand on my back to guide me to the way out. We walk while we look at the other rides we can go on. I gasp in excitement when I see that they sell fresh fairy floss.
"What is it?!" He asks looking at me. I point toward the fairy floss and he chuckles. "Okay, let's get some." We walk over to the stall and get two fairy floss sticks and eat them whilst we walk.
"Thank you." I say to him.
"I should be thanking you." He said. He sat down on the grass and I sat beside him. I looked at him a little confused.
"And why would that be?" I asked.
"Because you came out on a date with me." He smiled at me. "I like being around you. You make me feel... Normal." He said the words and looked at the little girls holding their father's hand.
"I should be thanking you." I said and ate a bit more fairy floss.
"Why's that?" He asked.
"Because, this is fun." I replied. "I haven't done something like this in a very long time.
"How come?" He asked.
"Work.. I work too much."
"I need the money to pay off my apartment and keep our lives going." I said.
"By 'our' you mean you and Isabelle?" He asked. I nodded. "You're a really good friend you know that? You look after her really well." I smiled at myself and looked down at the fairy floss. "I just hope you're living out your days and enjoying yourself as well. You deserve it." I looked up and into his eyes. He was looking at me with such sincerity. I blushed and looked away.
