The next day, I decided to test out a new song of mine in my music room. I wanted to make sure the chords sounded good with the lyrics.
In the middle of the chorus I heard "Wow!" I screamed and turned to see who it was. To my surprise it was Harry. "What the hell Harry? How'd you get down here?" I yelled. "Um... Your mom let me down." He said "listen I'm sorry I intruded but I was wondering if you would like to go on a picnic with me." I was shocked. "Um. Yeah sure! I'm sorry for being rude. When should we go?" I asked. "Like... Now!" He said happily. And then he pulled me by the wrist and we ran out the door.
We walked to the nearby park and plopped down under a tree. "You know, you really do have a great voice." Harry mentioned as he was taking a bite of his sandwich. "Yeah? Thank you. That means a lot." I blushed. I couldn't help it. No one has ever said any compliments to me other than my family. It felt nice. "So what do you like to do Harry? Besides scaring me." I joked. "Well, I also sing. And I really like to cook and just have a good time." He said. Oh wow he sings too? Is it weird I want to hear him sing? Maybe we could write a duet together! "You sing too?" I blurted. He laughed "haha yeah." "Maybe we could write a duet together?" I asked. Now I'm really excited. "That'd be lovely." He said.
The rest of the picnic was an absolute blast. He's such a good friend. I'm glad he's in my life now. He makes me happy just like how friends should, right?
Right before we left the park he leaned in to kiss me. I don't know what to do. I thought we were just friends. I pushed him away. "Listen Harry, I'm sorry but we just met and I just want to be friends right now. I'm new here and I'm not really looking for a relationship. I'm sorry I hope we can still be friends." I stated. He looked awkward. Yikes, what did I just do. "Oh no it's fine it's. Just. Yeah let's just be friends. I'm sorry for this. "
We just walked back in silence. Shoot what did I just do. Dang it.
The next day I was outside mowing the lawn. I was listening to some of my songs when I spotted Harry mowing the lawn too. We both spotted eachother and it then became a little race on who could finish first. He ended up winning. "You did an awful job!" I giggled. "I still finished first!" He sang while sticking out his tounge. "Now what's my prize?" He asked. I walked over to the hose and turned it on. "Your prize? Is this!" And I sprayed the hose at him. Then he ran I get his hose and we just started having a water fight. We laugh and screamed for a good 15 minutes. We then fell and layed down on the freshly cut grass.
"So do you wanna work on a duet?" I asked nervously. I've never sung with anyone else except for in a choir. "Um, why not?" He laughed. We went downstairs and started working on the lyrics.
It was coming along very well! We got all the lyrics done and are working on the music aspect now. "You know, you have a very beautiful voice." He said and winked. I blushed and looked at the ground. "Thank you. You too." I smiled. After 2 more hours of getting the song completed, we listened to the finished product.
It sounded amazing. Our voices went so well together. It was like they fit. We both sat there in awe. "Wow." Was all we said for minutes. "Hey I have an idea!" He said excitedly. "Yeah? What?" I asked. "Why don't we make a music video or post a video of us singing this on YouTube? We could become famous!" He shouted. "Ehhhh, I don't know." "Aw come on Lilly! This could be amazing for us!" He sounded frustrated now. "Listen, I don't know if I really want to become famous. Not now anyway. You can if you want but I want to focus on school now." I said. " Well alright. I will. In fact I'm auditioning for X-Factor later this week." He said as we got up and walked away.
