“Belle come on and get up,” Harry says as he pokes my face
“Mmm go away” I move his hands away from me
“No come on and get up you have work and it's your first day back at uni”
“Alright I’m getting up” I mumble
I take another 20 minutes of laying in bed until 7:20 appears on my phone screen. I get up and start fixing the bed since Harry is about to leave soon. When I'm done fixing the bed I bend down to fix the bed slip. When I bend down I see a shiny object lying underneath the bed. I grab the object and examine it in my hands. The side of the bracelet says “Belle I promise”
“Hey, belle where’s the” He stops mid sentence to see what I’m looking at
“Umm, I don’t know”
“Can I see it?” He asks
He looks at the bracelet and looks at me with wide eyes before looking away. I move closer to him closing the space. I just stare into eyes looking at his dimples, admiring the way his green eyes are sparkling. He looks back at me and brings his hand up to my face and strokes it. I start to blush. He smirks back seeing what he does to me. Before I can even talk he beats me to it.
“This is something I was going to surprise you with. I loved you for so long Isabella Hunter. The day you left made me so sad. I was angry, sad and depressed. I didn’t think that I would ever see that beautiful smile of yours. I was pissed off at Liam and the world when I found out that you and him were together. I never really loved Alice. I got with her to get you out of my head. Then, when I found out that he cheated on you I was really angry with him for the longest. What I’m trying to say is that I love you so much Isabella, and I want you today and forever. This isn’t a proposal, but a promise from me to you. That when we're ready we’ll get married, and you’ll be my Mrs. Styles.”
I stand there speechless, not able to form sentences. I start to cry.
“Is that a yes?” He says smiling
I wipe my eyes and nose.
“Yes!!” I say smiling
Harry puts on the bracelet and pulls me into him. He smiles at me before he leans down to kiss me. Once we pull away he grins and lets me get out of his grip. I smile and walk to the closet to grab some clothes. It is really late for me to go to work so I call in and explain that I need a day off. Harry and I decided to have a day to ourselves before going back to work and stuff.
I take a shower and get my makeup spread out on the counter. I let the curling wand heat up and get ready. Going to the closet I pull out a nude skater skirt and a black short sleeved crop top. I lay my pink leather jacket on the bed along side my nude heels. Quickly I change into my undergarments. I decide to do my morning routine and my hair before putting my clothes on.
“You ready for the day love?” Harry asks
“Yeah, just let me put my clothes on”
“Or you can keep them off,” He says back smirking
“No, we have to get going. I canceled my day for us”
“Mm fine” He wraps his arms around me from behind
I squirm to get out of his hold. I laugh and walk away from him. I pull my clothes on and pull my heels on before spraying perfume on and walking out of the bedroom.
“Let’s go out to breakfast since we have time today” I suggest
“Will do my love”
I grab my keys and walk out to the car park. I throw Harry my keys and get into the passenger seat. When we pull up to The Riding House Café. The paps start to ask questions and block the entrance. I look around to find Harry. I don’t see him until someone grabs my waist and guides me to the cafe door. Once we get in Harry looks at me. I look at his frowned face and darkened green eyes.
“Are you ok? Are you hurt?” He started asking bunch of questions
“I’m fine,” I say a little annoyed
We find a place to sit and started to look over the menu.
“Welcome to The Riding House Café, I’m Alice, and I’ll be your server today. What can I get you?” She says
“I’ll have scrambled eggs on toasted with bacon no mushrooms, and a macchiato. My lady would like Brioche French Toast with a side of Roast Tomatoes, and an iced coffee please.” Harry answers the waiter.
When he gets done looking at the menu he looks up with wide eyes. He takes his eyes off of the waiter and looks down at the table. I frown as the waiter looks over at him.
“Harry is that you?” she says
“Hey, Alice how are you?” He says back smiling
“I’m good you?” He asks her
I get up from the table to go freshen up in the washroom. Once I walk off I look back to see Harry and Alice Laughing. I turn back around and head to the washroom. I walk in and check my makeup and look at myself in the mirror. I think about all my insecurities and think why would Harry even want me.
I pull myself together and walk out of the washroom. Walking back to the spot where Harry and I are seated, I see Alice still talking to him. She leans over and kisses his cheek before getting up and winking at me. As I make my way to the door, I’m stopped by Harry.
“Where are you going?”
“Away from here, and you”
I looked him in the eyes and asked him one more question.
“Do you still love her?”
“No” He replies uncertainly
Before he says anything else further I walk out. My mind says to get out, but my heart says to stay so all I could do was run. Run away from problems and who I really am.
I guess everything is going back to the way it was before.
