"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?

[ Harry's P.O.V. ]

"Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they're taking pictures of the number plate."

My eyes narrowed and I squinted at the people hanging out of the car behind us. Why the hell would they want to take pictures of the number plate? The only reason I could think of would be so they could track the car. But what good would that do to them? I didn't even want to think about it.

Exhaling loudly, I rubbed my temples and turned around to face the front again.

"I've never had to deal with this before," Alex mumbled, sounding slightly worried. I gave him an apologetic look, wondering how to deal with it myself.

"Do you think it'll be a problem when we're at mine?" Beth asked suddenly, chewing at her lip nervously. I shook my head.

"We're going to figure something out. They can't find out where you live," I stated firmly, my brow furrowed.

"I could try and shake them off our tails," Alex offered, shrugging.

"That would be great, thank you," Beth said immediately, still not looking consoled, though.

"You're very welcome, madame," he replied, making a weak attempt at a winning smile. It looked more like a grimace.

"We just need enough time to get out of the car unnoticed, right?" I mused, thinking out loud. Alex shrugged, nodding slightly.

"Is there a kind of hidden passage you guys can go through? Sounds cheesy, I know," he added, rolling his eyes at himself.

Beth shook her head, the atmosphere solemn. I cracked a grin, nothing was going the way it was supposed to. It was kind of funny.

"I guess we'll have to leg it," I then concluded, leaning back.

"Yep," she sighed, playing with a bit of my hair.

"But my place is right on the corner so we can just jump out and you can drive on," she explained, shrugging. It was the best we had. Then I remembered the payment.

"I don't know how much it'll cost with the losing paparazzis thing, but I'll give you fifty quid," I mumbled, fishing my wallet out of my pocket and putting the note on the dashboard.

"Paying you afterwards would be a bit hard if we have to be quick," I added, seeing his cautious look. I knew it would probably be too much. But he nodded, not objecting. Somehow, that made me like him a little more. He probably knew it wouldn't be convenient to start arguing about money. And anyway, he deserved it because he was doing his best for us.

"I think I'll start confusing them now," Alex murmured with a slight smile as he accelerated.

"Hold on to your hankies," he then added, amusement clear in his voice as he turned sharp right into a narrow alley. I leaned back as he drove this way and that, achieving something as the intervals between sights of our pursuers grew bigger.

"It's just around the corner from here," Beth suddenly realised, sitting up straight, her hand on the handle of the car door. I did the same, preparing myself to jump out of the car and run.

"Here, I'll be at Tesco's if you want me to drive you back or something," Alex said immediately, shoving a business card towards me. I muttered a quick thanks and nodded.

The car stopped.

As quickly as I could, I ripped open the door, slammed it shut, grabbed Beth's hand and sprinted towards her front door. As soon as we had reached it, she fumbled with the key that she had ready in her other hand. After a few seconds, the door was open and we crashed through. I hastily closed the door as softly as I could.

"Wow," I breathed, leaning against the wall in relief. Giggling, Beth pecked me on the lips and went upstairs. I decided to follow her, the ghost of a grin on my face. Now we just had to pack her stuff.

But I got a surprise when I reached her room. She was dragging an already full suitcase towards the door.

"How? When did-"

"I packed before we left," she admitted, giving me a sheepish look.

"How did I not notice that?" I questioned, frowning. Wouldn't I have realised if she'd been packing? While I was here?

"You fell asleep while we were watching that Disney movie. Remember?" she explained, ruffling my hair as she continued pulling her things out of the room.

"Why did you do it?" I then asked quietly. She rolled her eyes.

"Because I wanted to go to Disneyland," she snorted. But I gave her a look and she sighed.

"Because I actually considered taking the next plane to Boston."

I opened my mouth, even though I was at loss for words to say. She would have done that for me? I thought about how I would be feeling right now, had I caught that plane. And how it would have been like to have her arrive at the same place an hour later. Suddenly it fully hit me that she had probably been feeling the same as I had while we had been apart. I felt blind, to not completely realise that I hadn't been the only one down about it. Of course, I'd told her all about how much better it would have been with her. How much more fun the tour would be with her by my side. How much I wished she could have been there with me. And she had seriously thought about making my wish come true. Flying across the world wasn't a simple feat, so it really hit me how much I appreciated the girl standing in front of me as I gave her silence.

"Thank you."

And then I took a step forward and pressed my lips to hers. Her arms immediately went around my neck and pulled me a tiny bit closer as my hands gripped her waist. Never had I realised how right it felt, her lips on mine, kissing me with just as much passion as I felt. At fist the kiss was small, but it slowly grew in intensity.

Until she muttered something. I pulled away, giving her a confused look.

"Alex," she repeated. I cracked up laughing, leaning my head on her shoulder.

"What? What's so funny?" she asked, frowning. I gasped for air.

"We were literally just making out and you just moaned his name," I wheezed, a fit of giggles taking over me again. She slapped my cheek playfully.

"I did not moan his name!" she exclaimed, trying to look cross.

"And we need to get going, he's waiting for us!" she added sharply, poking my chest. I yelped, but then cracked up again at her sour expression.

"You look like a hot cross bunny," I breathed, literally hanging on her for dear life.

"Or a hot cross Bethy," I then realised, following the statement with another round of laughter.

"Never call me that again," she said seriously, poking my cheek. She was on a roll with the poking.

"Bethy," I whispered, snorting.

"Idiot," she said dismissively, trying to get me off her. I gave her a cheesy smile, pecking her on the cheek.

"But your idiot," I replied, winking as I took her suitcase and headed downstairs with it.
