Hurdles

Our relationship. It wasn't sonnet inspiring, the story of it won't make thousands want to listen. But it was complicated and it was special to us. It was certainly more than I bargained for from just seeing a boy with a football helmet across the room.

37. Thirty seven

We sit there together through the sunset and quite a long time after it gets dark. We kiss and hold hands and do everything we used to do but I can tell that this is just a little fairy tale state and we're going to have to talk about reality again soon. It gets to nine at night and our parents are wondering where we are and he sighs, looking at me. 

"I guess this is where you remind me you don't want a six year old step son at twenty two and all this ends again." he says and I cringe a little but I can't deny it. 

"I guess so." I shrug. "Now we go back to normal?"

"Can we go back to normal as in before we started dating normal?" he asks, a hopeful look on his face and I smile at him. 

"I'd like that."

Maybe it's not the relationship I really, truly want with him but it's better than us arguing the way we have been recently. I have this real feeling of relief once he drops me home that night. Everything's out in the open and we're okay now and I start to get a sense of that carelessness I was feeling before the whole argument. I get a text from Dan a little while after I get home and he says:

I TOLD YOU SO 

I laugh at my phone and reply:

SH

"So you were with Harry?" my dad asks and I look up from my phone. 

"Yeah."

"So you're friends again?" my mum asks and she smiles when I nod. "I knew you would be. You are very, very special to each other."

I laugh at her, rolling my eyes. "I know mum, you've said before."

"Well you are." she says, actually getting tears in her eyes making me laugh more. "You made him feel happier when he was so down and I am so proud of you for being such a lovely person darling."

"Mum!" I cringe, still laughing. "Thank you. Alright, I'm going to bed. Night guys."

I do have to admit, I am kind of flattered by what she said. I think I'll forever be flattered by the fact that I did make Harry feel better because I care about him so much and I guess that's the aim you have with whoever you love.
