"What's wrong? What's happening?"
"Just some complications."
Beth and Harry? Great match. But things are complicated. And how are you supposed to fight complications when they have been part of your relationship from the start?


13. 13

[Harry's P.O.V.]
"Do you like it?" I asked Beth worriedly. She hadn't said much and I was starting to think that she had expected something better. 
"It's beautiful. I love it," she replied, tearing her gaze from the fantastic view and looking at me in an appreciative way. 
"Good," I mumbled, going back to my sandwich. 
When we were both finished we watched the sun sink until it wasn't visible anymore. That's when I stood up. It was time to continue the planned evening. 
I picked up a plastic bag and shook it for good measure as Beth gazed up curiously. 
"What's that?" she asked. 
"You'll see," I smirked, winking at her. 
I pulled a lighter out of my pocket and plunged my hand into the bag. 
I then set the revealed little candle on the ground and put the lighter back in my pocket, realizing I didn't have to use it yet. 
I put the candles in the short grass in a circle around the picnic blanket so Beth was surrounded with a ring of unlit candles. 
I then proceeded to light every single one of them and I could see not only the wicks but also Beth's face light up as she saw what I had been intending to do. 
When I was finished we were in the middle of literally a ring of flame. I was lucky that there wasn't a even trace of wind, or I'd be standing up again and again to relight a candle. 
"That's really romantic, I absolutely love this date!" Beth said, her eyes shining. 
"That's good. I was thinking we could stargaze a bit when the stars come out," I suggested. 
"That sounds perfect to me," she smiled, leaning back on her elbows. 
I just looked at her, taking in her appearance. She was beautiful, just like her personality was. 
"You're a beautiful person, you do know that, right?" I told her in a more serious tone.
"Thanks," she mumbled, looking down. I could see her blushing. 
"Really, I mean it. Gorgeous. Inside and out," I said earnestly, trying to catch her eye. 
She looked up again with something in her eyes that I couldn't quite explain what was. 
"Thank you," she whispered after a hesitant pause. 
"Well it's just the truth, you don't have to thank me for that," I said with a small smile. 
"Thanks anyway," she replied, looking back at the view. I took hold of her hand absentmindedly and stared at the shadowy landscape too. 
We watched as the final rays of light disappeared and the sky darkened. 
"Look," Beth suddenly announced, pointing at a bright dot in the darkening sky. 
"The first star," I smiled, now rubbing circles into her hand. She let her stretched arm fall beside her again and frowned. 
"Actually, that's Venus. Not a star," she explained. 
"Really?" I asked surprisedly. 
"Laura told me but she might be wrong," she nodded.
"Here come stars then," I pointed out, laying myself down on my back. 
"I have one right next to me," she smirked. 
She laid herself next to me and I chuckled and took her hand in both mine now, holding on as if I never wanted to let go. 
"I love stars," she sighed gazing up. I turned my head to the side to look at her again. I wanted to see if I could read her. And I could never get enough of seeing her anyway.
She looked really happy and I smiled to myself. The stars were reflected in her hazel eyes so that they shined with not only her light but theirs too. She was like light to me. There to help me when times were dark. She literally outshone anyone I had met. And as cliché as it might sound, I thought she might be that one I could call the light of my life. 
"Why are you staring at me?" she suddenly giggled, turning her head too so she was looking at me. And yet again I was drowning in her hazel eyes, never wanting to look away. They were the most beautiful eyes I had ever seen. Lots of people talked about blue and green eyes, but in my opinion none of them saying that knew how beautiful these pair looking at me were. 
"I like this view," I mumbled. 
She didn't say anything, just stared back at me. I knew in that moment that I really liked her. Much more than others. 
Something told me that this was the moment to ask her to be my girlfriend but I ignored that and moved my head closer to hers. It could wait till afterwards. 
I put my forehead against hers and lifted up a hand to stroke her cheek. All my senses were screaming at me to just lean in and do it but I was scared of rushing things. 
I glanced at her lips, wanting to kiss them, but afraid of the consequences. I was getting quite annoyed with myself, it was a kiss, not really worth a mental battle. But what if she thought everything was going too fast? 
I sounded silly. Fuck that, I was doing this. 
I leant in and pressed my lips to hers, feeling like they fit perfectly. She kissed me back immediately, our lips moving in sync. I could feel sparks in the air and everything felt right. 
When we broke apart to get air I saw that she had a loose strand of hair and tucked it behind her ear. 
"Oh yeah, I wanted to ask you something," I started carefully. 
"Go ahead," she smiled happily. 
"Um. Will you be my girlfriend, Beth? I've never met anyone like you before and everything just feels.... perfect with you," I asked, hope building up inside me. 
"Yes. I'd love to," she whispered, entwining our fingers. 
"Thank you so much for everything," I whispered back, kissing her knuckles lightly. 
"Thank you too," she replied. 
We looked back up at the stars for a while until I checked my watch and saw that it was already eleven. 
"You have work tomorrow, it's Sunday," I reminded her as I sat up. 
"I forgot that," she sighed, getting up too. She wanted to pack all the things up, but I shook my head. 
"I only need help with blowing out the candles, we don't want to start a fire," I explained. 
"Alright then," she nodded. 
We walked around, bending down to blow out each candle. 
When we were finished, she yawned and I took her hand and led her down the path again. We walked in a comfortable, sleepy silence, our arms swinging by our sides. 
When we were at the entrance of the park again, Beth yawned louder and I smiled slightly. She must've been knackered. 
"I don't know why I'm so tired, I'm sorry," she apologized, rubbing her eyes. 
"Let me carry you home," I offered, picking her up and ignoring her protests that it wasn't necessary. 
Eventually she fell asleep with her head leaning on my shoulder as I carried her on my back. I listened to her steady breathing and it calmed me in a way. And just imagine falling asleep to that every night. 
When I could see her door, I shook her slightly and she grumbled. 
"Hey, Beth," I whispered and she lifted her head sleepily. 
"What," she mumbled, her eyes half open. 
"We're here," I told her and she slid off my back, quickly found her key and opened the door. 
Before going in she turned back to me and smiled tiredly. 
"Thanks for tonight, it was amazing," she said. 
"Thanks for coming," I replied, smiling back. 
I leaned in and kissed her again, but this time more slowly. We then broke apart and she smiled again. 
"Goodnight Harry," she whispered. 
"Goodnight princess," I grinned, turning to go. 
I didn't hear the door close until I was at the end of the road. I sighed. That had been perfect.


Here you go, chapter thirteen to those of you who are reading this. I'm really annoyed at the moment, people are so lazy it's frustrating. Anyway, I'm writing this on Wattpad too, so if it's easier for you to read on there, my username's the same x
