There were three days before we left and I was sad. Harry had gotten Louis and Liam both to teach me how to surf and they would be meeting me on the beach any minute now.
I was sitting there, in my bikini, on the sand.
I was staring at the ocean until I heard footsteps behind me.
"Good morning Alexandra!" Liam says and I stand up.
I smile as I see them both coming down the beach to meet me.
"Good morning guys! Thank you so much for taking the time to teach me how to surf!" I say.
"It's no problem love. We're happy to teach you." Louis says with a smile.
I see that they both have wetsuits on and I kinda feel underdressed...
"Should I have one of those on instead of this?" I ask.
Louis and Liam look at each other.
"No." They both say.
"You're fine. Lot's of girls surf in a bikini, we just do it in wetsuits." Liam says.
"Alright." I say.
"Ok, we have three boards, we brought you one of course." Louis says with a smile. "I will teach you a little first, then Liam will take over and then we'll both help you."
"Ok, sounds good." I say.
Harry comes out onto the beach and sits down in the sand.
"And what are you doing?" Louis asks.
"I thought that this might be interesting, so I'm gonna watch." Harry says.
"Harry!" I say.
"Pay no attention to him. Now, I'm going to wrap this around your ankle, just so you don't lose it." Liam says.
"Ok." I say watching Liam attach the black strap to my ankle.
Liam stands up and smiles. "You're good to go."
"Thank you Liam." I say.
"Hey, hey," Harry says looking up at us frowning. "Watch it Alex, if you're too sweet to him I'm gonna have to get you back."
"Well I'm just being nice." I say.
"Ok, pick up your board and follow me." Louis says.
I look at how Louis is carrying his and pick mine up and try to carry it like his.
Following him into the water we go out to about waist deep.
"Ok, now get on your board like this." Louis says showing me how to get on my board.
I get on my board without falling over and then look at Louis.
"Alright, good job!" Louis smiles. "Now, we're going to paddle further out."
I follow Louis' lead and we paddle out to deeper waters.
He shows me how to turn my board around and we face away from the waves. After finding a wave, Louis teaches me how to stand up and everything. Then, I try it out for myself.
I fall the first, second, third and fourth time. Finally, on the fifth time, I'm able to ride the wave to shore.
I keep riding waves, again and again, until I finally get the hang of it.
Then Liam comes out and teaches me some more stuff.
For almost the whole day, we all surf and surf.
I was so happy! I could finally surf!
Though, later on, it seemed like I was being watched... I kept seeing this guy dressed in black everywhere.
At one point when things had calmed down, I thought I heard the click sound a camera would make. I brushed it off though and went back to enjoying the day.
Too soon though, the day ended and the sun started to set. It was a gorgeous sunset and then the guys ended up leaving. Harry and I watched the moon and stars, wrapped up in a blanket on the beach. I was content in his arms and happy that I could spend more time with him.
Soon, it would all end and I'd have to go back to New York. It wasn't a bad thing, I liked New York, but I was worried about my relationship with Harry....
Would it last? Or would it fall apart? Truth was, I couldn't answer that. I had no control over it, so I would just see where it went once I got back... But I hoped that it was going to last.
