First Anniversary Date
“Happy Anniversary.” Harry greeted as I wake up. Wow! We are already together for one year. Time flies so fast. It’s been a year of happy and strong relationship. I hope it will last forever. After graduation, I went back to London. I sacrificed everything just to study. Harry and I had only limited time to communicate but we still had a strong relationship. Many troubles, many challenges came but still we are here. Flashback.
“Hannah, don’t leave me. I’ll come with you.” Harry said.
“No Harry. Stay here. I need to study first. We still have the internet. We can communicate. Let me first achieve my dream to be a fashion designer.”
“Don’t sacrifice your career just because of me. That’s your dream. Don’t let it fade just because of me.” Tears are coming out on his eyes.
“Promise. I won’t change you. You’ll always be the one.” He kissed me on the forehead.
“Okay. I need to go. Remember, I’ll always be by your side. I’ll always be here to support you.” We hugged before I leave him.
“Hannah, I love you. Bye.” He kissed me. Yay! There are many people here.
“I love you too. See after 6 months.” I waved goodbye. Tears are falling. I will miss my baby. I will miss him so much. I hope distance will not be the reason for our love to fade. I hope we are not really undestined. We can do it. Okay, I need to study. I’ll achieve my dream.
We talk with each other once a week only. I thought I’ll just stay here in the Philippines for six months. Urgggg.. Dad is sick. He had kidney stone. He needs to be operated that’s why I need to help mom take care of him. Thank God. The operation was successful.
“Sorry Harry I can’t go to London this time because I need to manage our shop. Mom is busy.” I said to him as soon as he called.
“Ouch. You will not be able to watch our concert.”
“Sorry baby, but I promise, I’ll make it up to you.” I hope he’ll understand me. I hope he will still be loyal. Every minute, hour, and day, I am missing him. I really miss him. During my graduation, he wasn’t able to come. I’m so sad. But it’s okay, I understand, he has a career. He has a concert that time. It’s really hard. But then, on the month of July, Mom allowed me to go back to London. We already have a house there. And the time I saw Harry, I hugged him tightly. I kissed him. I really missed him. Our anniversary is getting near. End of flashback.
“Thanks Baby.” I hugged him. He kissed me on the lips. Yuck! I didn’t even brush my teeth.
“We’ll have a date later.” He said then winked.
“Just the two of us.” He added.
“Okay.” I said then I went to the comfort room and brush my teeth. I hope Harry didn’t smell my morning breath. Haha. Impossible.
“Happy anniversary Hannah and you, brother!” Gemma greeted. She baked a cake for us. How sweet! I love you Gemma!
“Kiss. Kiss.” The boys suddenly appeared.
“Shut up. Mom and Dad are still here.” Harry said to them. We all laughed. Haha. Afraid, Harry?
I prepared fast because I am so excited to celebrate this day. Yes! Harry drove the car and we waved goodbye to them.
“Bye lovers, be sure to make a baby.” Zayn said sarcastically. Zayn is really insane. Excited much?
“Where are we going?” I asked Harry.
“It’s a surprise.” He replied. Wow. He surely loves to surprise me.
We stop near the bay. Wow! Site-seeing? Swimming?
“Come on.” He grabbed my hand then we went to a ship. Wow!
“Like my surprise?” he asked.
“I just don’t like it. I love it!” I hugged him. He’s really the best boyfriend ever!
The sea is so breathtakingly beautiful. I love the view. We are having a date here. Wow! Perfect! There are even people here playing violin. So romantic! I love everything here. The food, the breeze, the music, my date, everything is so perfect. Harry gave me a bouquet of pink tulips. He really knows my favourite.
“Thanks Baby.” I hugged him. I’m such an emotional person. Sorry. I’m just really surprised.
“Can we dance?” he asked after we ate.
Violins played again. It’s a very romantic song. We danced. We danced gracefully. We danced like we are the only one in this world. Wow! We are like Jack and Rose in the movie Titanic. Yieeee!!!
“Close your eyes.” He said. I closed my eyes.
“Where are we going?”
We walked then went to a place here on the ship. I don’t know what this place is. Of course, my eyes are closed. I hope it’s not the bedroom. Haha.
“You can open your eyes now.” He is holding my waist. I opened my eyes and I’m shocked.
“Oh my gosh.”
“Don’t be afraid. Stretch your arms.” I stretch while he’s holding my hands. I love this! The new Jack and Rose are here!
“Thanks Harry.” I said then kissed him passionately.
“I love you. I’ll do everything for you.”
I don’t want to stop this time. I freaking love it! If I would be asked what part of my life I would want to rewind, these experience would be one. I feel so lucky to have a boyfriend like him. He really made my life full of colours.
“I’ll just go somewhere. Wait here okay?” Harry said as soon as we entered on a room here.
“Stay here. Don’t go out until I’ll come back.” What? Okay. Anyway, I’m sleepy.
“Okay. I’ll just sleep here.” Haha. I’m really sleepy. Yay! I look at the clock and it’s already 3:00 P.M. wonder what Harry will do? Never mind. It’s better to be surprised. Good day to all good night to me.
I know Titanic is one of Hannah’s favourite movies. That’s why I made her favourite movie come to reality. I really knew she’ll like it. I enjoyed... especially the kiss. Haha. The new Jack and Rose are here!
“Thanks Harry.” She said then kissed me. Nice gift baby! I love it.
“I love you. I’ll do everything for you.”
“I’ll just go somewhere. Wait here okay?” I said as we entered on the room. I have one last surprise for her.
“Stay here. Don’t go out until I’ll come back.” I added. I really want to surprise her. Good timing. She looks so sleepy.
“Okay. I’ll just sleep here.”
I really planned well here. I hope she’ll like it. It’s more unique than the style of her ex boyfriend. I want her to experience a date that will really mark in her heart. Something that’s not common. I planned to do this for Vayne before, my first love. But then I wasn’t able to make it because she broke up with me. She broke up with me on the day of our first anniversary. Never mind. I have to focus on the present. Anyway, I moved on.
“Sir, everything’s set.” Ricky said. He’s one of the employees here. Oh, it’s already 6:00 P.M. perfect time.
As soon as I open my eyes, I saw a box on the table. It’s for me. Wonder what’s inside? Oh my. I feel nervous. What if this is a bomb? What if this is a monster’s mask? Yay! Okay. I’m overacting. I opened it slowly. I gave a sigh of relief. It’s a dress. I read what’s written on the card: ‘Wear this tonight.’ Wow! I thought we’ll go home already. What is Harry up to?
As he wished, I wear the dress and went outside. Ooopppsss. He told me not to go out until he’ll come back. Sorry baby. Will I go back to the room? Uhmmm... I look around. I saw petals of pink tulips on the floor. Oh my! I want to gather all of these. It’s like it points to a direction. Will I follow it? You’ll not lose something if you try it. Why not? I’ll just try.
“Oh my. Where is this place? It’s so dim.” I said to myself. I think I need to go back to the room. I was about to go out when the lights suddenly open. Who opened the lights? I hope it’s not a ghost. Yay!
“For you Madame.” A man gave a rose to me. Then another man came again. Another rose. Another man, another rose. The cycle goes on. I’m holding a lot of rose already. Where’s Harry?
“Where’s Harry?” I asked the man who happened to be the last who gave me a rose.
“I don’t know Madame.” What? Weher is he? Why are you giving these flowers to me? What’s happening? I think they are mistaken. I have to go.
“I have to go.” I said to the men. They all smiled. I was about to open the door when a video played.
“The first time we met, I’m already amazed on you. Before meeting you, I loved somebody else. I’m became a playboy because she broke up with me. I lied to myself for saying I am loyal. I had many ex girlfriends. But then I met you. My life suddenly changed. I suddenly changed. Thank You Hannah. You know what, I am tempted to date other girls before, when you were so far from me, but I just can’t do it. I love you. I don’t want to hurt you. My heart always beats for you. My mind always thinks about you. I love you. I love you. Remember the people who told you that we’ll broke up soon? Hmmm... this is the proof that we really love each other. Undestined love? Their wrong. We are meant to be. Happy First Anniversary and Happy Birthday Rainbow.” The video stopped. Tears of joy came out. He’s so sweet. But where is he?
“Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday Hannah.” Oh gosh! I remember it’s also my birthday today. Mom and dad are here? Wow! I hugged them
“Thanks dad and Mom.”
“Hannah, Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary to the two of you.” Harry’s mom and dad greeted.
“Thanks tito. Thanks tita.”
“Sis. Happy Birthday. I already greeted you last morning. Haha.” Gemma said. She’s so sweet.
“Hannah! Happy Anniversary. Happy Birthday.” Oh! The four boys are here.
“Thanks buddies.” Wow! I love them all. I love it! Someone tickled me at my back. I look at him. It’s Harry.
“Totally. Thank you.” He was about to kiss me.
“Ahemmmm...” They all respond. Woah! Sorry. Haha.
“Can I have this dance?”
We danced again. They joined us. So romantic. I love this.
“Thank you so much Harry. You’re the best.”
“Thanks you for coming into my life.” He said then his face came closer to mine. Then... we kissed.
