12. Singing to her

 

Alys's POV

 

The boys had another interview, so I sat at the hotel and made dinner of pasta. When the came back, we all ate and then the boys watched television. I went out to the balcony when it was dark outside and watched the cars passing by below. The balcony door slid open, and I felt warm arms wrapping around my waist and a head rest on my shoulder. I laugh and turn around to find Harry's stunning green eyes on mine.

"How are you?" He asks, releasing me.

"Good," I reply, smiling.

He smiles back and takes my hand. "C'mon, I need to show you something."

We walk back and Harry sits me down on the couch. Winking, he turns off the television and gets a chair from the dining room the boys do the same. Niall gets his guitar and they all sit down on the chairs facing me.

"Here's to you, Alys," said Harry when they were situated. "Our new song called 18."

I roll my eyes playfully and watch as Niall warms up and tunes his guitar, then starts strumming away. Harry smiles at me and then starts singing:

I've got a heart

And I've got a soul

Believe me, I

Will use them both.

We made a start,

Be it a false one, I know

Baby I don't want to feel alone.

 

Then Liam winks at me and sings:

So kiss me where I lay down

My hands pressed to your cheeks

A long way from the playground

 

All the boys smile at me charmingly and sing:

I have loved you since we were 18,

Long before we both thought the same things.

To be loved, and to be in love

All I could do

Was say that these arms were made for holding you

I want to love like you made me feel

When we were 18.

 

Niall took over:

We took a chance

God knows we tried

Yet all along

I know we'd be fine

 

Liam sang:

So pour me a drink, oh love

Let's split the night

Wide open, and we'll see everything we can

Live in love in slow motion, motion, motion

 

Harry sang:

So kiss me where I lay down

My hands pressed to your cheeks

A long way from the playground

 

Everyone sang:

I have loved you since we were 18

Long before we both thought the same things

To be loved, and to be in love

All I could do was say that these arms were made for holding you

And I want to love like you've made me feel

When we were 18

 

Niall smiled at me and sang:

When we were 18,

Oh, Lord, when we were 18

 

Harry took over:

Kiss me where I lay down

My hands pressed to your cheeks

A long way from the playground

 

Louis sang:

I have loved you since we were 18.

 

They finished the song. Harry went up to me and I stood up and wrapped my arms around him. I pressed my lips to his softly and the boys cheered in the background, but I got lost in his kiss, he slid his warm, strong arms around my waist and held me there until we pulled away, trying to catch our breath.

"How did you like it, love?" Whispered Harry, his breath tickling my ear.

"I loved it," I whisper back. Then I pull away and give each of the other boys a big hug.

It was pretty late out, so we said goodnight to the boys and Harry and I headed off to bed.

 

HARRY POV

I took a quick, lukewarm shower and changed into a shirt over a sweater and shorts, then dried by hair with my towel and Alys went next. I pulled out my phone and texted my mum in Cheshire.

Good night, mum. Love Harry

She replied back immediately:

Good night love. Miss you so much. Hope you and the boys are okay. Love mum.

I smile and check Instagram, which I hadn't for a bit. I rolled my eyes and laughed as I saw Niall's most recent post of a picture of London at night. I scroll down and look at a few more posts and power off my phone, sighing and closing my eyes. A few minutes later I feel Alys's lips press my cheek gently. I open my eyes and smile. Alys is wearing loose cotton pants and a grey sweater. Her hair is soft and warm from blow-drying her hair. "Good night, Harry," Alys whispers, laying down and pulling the covers over her. I brush away some of her curly brown hair and kiss her forehead. She smiles and closes her eyes, scooting up closer to me. I put an arm around her and she lays her head on my shoulder and soon she's sound asleep. But I am still awake. In the dark, I lean up close to her ear and whisper, "Alys, I love you. So, so, so much." Then I close my eyes and fall asleep with her.
