Chapter 45

HARRY’S P.O.V.


I roll over in me and Louis’ semi-lit bedroom, expecting to drape my arm over his sleeping body, only to feel cool, empty sheets.

“Lou,” my voice is scratchy and quiet, so I clear my throat and repeat myself, “Lou?”

“Babe? Why are you awake?”

His voice is coming from the closet and I scrunch my eyebrows together in confusion. I’m still waking up and nothing is really connecting in my head. I yawn loudly and roll over to better project
my voice to where he is.

“I could ask you the same thing.”

He steps out of the walk-in closet, wearing boxers that he didn’t fall asleep in. In fact, he was entirely naked just like I am now.

“Well, it was meant to be a surprise, but you woke up at six on a Friday for some god-awful reason.”

I chuckle and cuddle up to my pillow, closing my eyes to block the bits of sunlight shining through the window.

“What’s meant to be a surprise?”

He approaches the bed and rolls me onto my back before climbing on top of the blankets, placing his legs on either side of my hips. I open my eyes as he leans down to kiss me softly.

“We’re going on holiday.”

I stroke my hands down his bare chest and let them rest at the elastic that begins his single piece of clothing.

“And where on earth are we going?”

He kisses my forehead and runs his fingers through my mess of hair.

“Now that is going to stay a surprise, my dear. Don’t worry, I’m packing for you.”

“Dear? You’re making us sound like an old married couple. How do I know you’ve packed everything I want?”

Louis chuckles and kisses my lips again.

“Just trust me, okay? Go back to sleep, love. I have to go out for a bit and we’re leaving in the
afternoon. No reason to be awake right now.”

He tries to leave the bed, but I hold onto his waist and pull him back, forcing him to lay down on top of me.

“Then why are you? You’re being so secretive.”

I make sure to include traces of suspicion in my tone, even though I know he’s not up to something bad. I just like to tease him. He smirks and nips at my jaw playfully.

“All part of the surprise. Don’t even try to get it out of me. It won’t work.”

It must be a big surprise then, because Louis can never keep a secret from me. Ever.

“Fine, I won’t try to ruin it even though I really do hate surprises.”

Louis scoffs and gently pinches my nipple, forcing a small moan from me.

“That’s just something people who secretly love surprises say.”

I giggle and pull him closer so that I can kiss him without making the effort to sit up.

“Alright, stop distracting me. You don’t want it to be a shit surprise, do you?”

I huff and release my grasp on his waist. He kisses me once more and stands up.

“I demand you go back to sleep.”

I nod my head and close my eyes again. It doesn’t sound like a bad idea.

“Yes, master.”

He chuckles and disappears back into the closet.


LOUIS’ P.O.V.



Once I have everything packed, including Harry’s ridiculous head scarves that I know he’ll complain about if they’re missing, I kiss his forehead as he snores softly and bring our bags to the living room. I leave them there and fetch my wallet, keys, and shoes before going over the list I made in my head. I probably should have written it down, but that just isn’t how I do things.
Once I’m comfortable with everything being packed, I leave the flat in clothes that I plan on changing before we officially leave London. I climb into my car and send my mum a text that I’m on my way so that she can leave as well. She’s bringing the girls to meet me halfway in Leicaster. She wasn’t originally thrilled with the idea, but after I begged her and assured her that it was really important, she agreed to drive the hour and a half. I’m driving a bit longer than her because Leicaster is just a good place to meet. I don’t wish for anyone to be in the car with my sisters for much longer than necessary anyway.

I begin to drive and turn the radio on to get me through two lonely hours on the road.

“Louis!”

Phoebe and Daisy practically yell when they spot me in the nearly empty restaurant. Mum
requested a table near the secluded corner, which is always a good idea if you don’t want a bunch of eavesdroppers.

“Hello girls!”

I squat down and open my arms wide as they run into them. I hug them tightly before standing up
and guiding them back to the table. I briefly kiss my mum’s cheek, followed by Lottie and Fizzy, before sitting down between mum and the twins.

“So, why are we here?”

I roll my eyes at Fizzy and stick my tongue out at her.

“Good to see you too, Fizz.”

She returns the gesture and smiles.

“You know I’m glad to see you. It just seems like something important.”

“Well, it is. Can we just order first?”

All of the girls nod reluctantly, including mum, who seems almost as impatient as my younger sisters. She has no idea what I’m about to say, but she has always told me I can tell the girls about my relationship when I’m ready. And I’m ready. There’s just also a bit of a surprise for her as well.

The waitress takes our drink orders and disappears again, leaving us all to sit in anticipating silence.

“So, Dan couldn’t come?”

“No, he had work. I had to pull the girls out of school. It is a Friday, you know?”

“Yeah, yeah. You can relay the news then. I’m sure the girls didn’t complain about missing
school.”

They all shake their head enthusiastically.

“What news is this exactly?”

“Good lord, mum. Five more minutes, eh?”

She rolls her eyes and laughs nervously. God knows what she’s expecting me to tell her. I don’t
think she’ll be disappointed. Probably just shocked.

Our waitress returns with our drinks and everyone puts in their order for brunch. When the server disappears again, every woman in my family is staring at me expectantly.

“Okay, okay! Fine. Just don’t be to loud, alright? People can’t hear us.”

I look at each of my sisters until the nod in understanding.

“Okay, well, first things first. There’s something I need to tell you girls. I need you to keep this a
secret, though, alright? It’s very important.”

Mum gasps in shock, obviously realizing what I am about to tell them. The girls all nod in
confusion and wait for me to continue. They’re cooperating much more than I expected. I anticipated more disorder and over-excitement.

“Okay, you all know Harry, right?”

Lottie rolls her eyes and scoffs.

“Of course we do. He’s your best friend, dummy.”

“Well, that’s the thing, Lottie. He’s more than that.”

Lottie and Fizzy seem to understand right away, even though they seem utterly shocked. Daisy and Phoebe stare at me innocently, not getting what I mean.

“Daisy, Phoebe. You know how mum and Dan are together? Like they’re in love?”

The girls nod and smile at mum.

“Well, that’s how me and Harry are. We’re in love. He’s my boyfriend.”

They both smile wider, with no more shock than if Harry were a girl.

“What about Eleanor, though? Does she know?”

Fizzy seems alarmed and a chuckle.

“Of course. She’s not really my girlfriend. She pretends to be, but we’re only friends.”


“Why does she pretend to be your girlfriend, Louis?”

Daisy questions and I turn to mum. I don’t know how to explain it best.

“I’ll tell you about it later, love.”

I silently thank mum and wait for all of the girls to let this news sink in.

“There’s more to it. Something I need to tell all of you. Mum, too.”

Mum looks nervous again and I rest my hand on her shoulder comfortingly. She nods for me to
continue.

“I’m going to ask Harry to be my husband.”

They all gasp in shock. Mum’s eyes fill with tears, but she has a huge grin plastered on her face. She pulls me into a hug and I lay my head on her shoulder.

“My baby boy is getting married.”

She practically whispers and I can feel a few tears drop onto my cheek from hers. I sniff and fight
the crying because I don’t want to make this all overly sentimental. If I cry, it’ll only make mum cry more. I pull away and chuckle to lighten the mood.

“That’s only if he says yes.”

Mum playfully smacks my arm.

“You know he will, love.”

“I think everyone overestimates his love for me.”

I mumble that under my breath, but I’m sure mum heard because she scoffs in disagreement.

The girls are all still looking at me, a bit confused, a bit indifferent, and Lottie positively angry.

“What do you girls think?”

“Why didn’t you tell me? I guess I understand if you were worried about the twins not keeping it a secret or maybe even Fizzy, but I think I’m more than old enough to know that my brother is gay and dating his best mate. I freaking stand up for Eleanor all the damn time and I’ve been looking like an idiot the whole damn time.”

Lottie crosses her arms over her chest and falls back in her chair.

“No, Lott. I’m sorry, I really am. It wasn’t all my fault, but I wish I had told you sooner. I didn’t want
the other girls to feel like I favored you or something. Plus, I was kind of afraid of how you would react. I see how you react to people on Twitter and it scared you were completely against the idea.”

“No, Lou. I was just trying to stand up for who I thought you were. I love you and Harry, so of course I accept you for who you are. I just wish you would have told me...”

“Sorry, sis. Can we just be happy now? Because I’m really freaking happy.”

Lottie can’t help but to smile at my ridiculously giddy expression and the rest of the girls follow suit, grinning happily at me.

“Can I wear a pink dress, Louis?”

I giggle at Phoebe as she tugs at my shirt excitedly.

“How about we let Harry say yes first.”

She slumps down in her chair and pouts dramatically.

“I promise to make sure you like your dress. How’s that?”

She nods, less enthusiastic than before.

“So, the main reason I made such a spectacle of telling you all today is that I want you to be there
when I ask him. I’m taking him on a trip today and when we come back on Sunday, all of our family and friends will be at our flat for a party to surprise him. Mum, please tell me you can make it.”

My mum leans over and drapes an arm over my shoulders, kissing my cheek loudly.

“Of course, baby. We’ll all be there.”

I smile and glance over all of my sister’s faces to find them all smiling and I couldn’t be happier
now if I tried.

“Thank you all for being supportive. Love you girls.”

They all nod and return the sentiment with small mumbles of ‘love you too, Lou’ and ‘yeah, happy
for you, Lou’ before the waitress brings our food over.

“Bon appétit!”

HARRY’S P.O.V.



I’ve showered and sat around the living room for two hours now. I slept until about eleven, but Louis was already gone. Now, I’m just waiting impatiently for him to come back so that this surprise doesn’t have to be a surprise anymore. I pick up my phone and hope to god I can get something out of one of the boys. Niall’s my best bet.

“Hello?”

“Niall! How are ya, mate?”

“Fine Harry. How are you?”

He seems on to me already with his stiff, warning tone.

“Great! I’m really excited for me and Lou’s trip.”


There’s a bit of silence and I know he’s wondering how much I know.

“He told you about it? I thought it was gonna be a surprise!”

I shrug my shoulders even though he can’t see.

“Nope, guess he couldn’t keep it. I’m waiting for him to get back and then we’re driving to the
airport.”

“Nice try, Harry. You two aren’t going to the airport.”

“So, we’re staying nearby then?”

“I didn’t say that. Harry, just stop asking questions and enjoy the damn surprise.”

I sigh loudly and give up.

“Fine. See you when we get back, Ni.”

“Bye Harry. I’m quite offended that you thought I’d be the one to give in.”

I chuckle before replying.

“I... oh, come on now. You are the worst at keeping secrets and you know it. Maybe next to Lou.”

“Yeah yeah. See ya, you tosser.”

I continue to laugh as I hang up, waiting even more impatiently for Louis to get home. So, we aren’t flying anywhere. I assume we’re going to some town nearby then because I doubt Louis is driving very far. I also doubt that we’re taking a train because we’d most likely be spotted by a lot of people.

Dammit, Lou. Where are we going?

As if on cue, I hear a key turning in the lock before the knob jiggles and the door opens.

“Hey babe. I hope you haven’t tried looking through or luggage or anything.”

He drops his keys on the coffee table and walks over to where I’m sitting on the couch. He plops down next to me, propping his feet up on the table.

“Really, Lou? You couldn’t take your shoes off?”

He rolls his eyes and wraps his arm around my waist, pinching my side lightly.

“Can you just stop being so nit-picky.”

I roll my eyes teasingly and lean over to kiss his cheek.

“Can we go now? I’m really getting impatient.”

Louis chuckles and gently grabs my face with his hand, forcing me to face him.

“Well, you aren’t going to know where we’re going for a bit anyway. Yes, we can go, though. We have a bit of a drive to start with.”

He leans forward and kisses me slowly, interlocking our lips perfectly.

“Now you’ve messed up every idea I had in my head as to where we’re going.”

I whisper against his lips and he laughs again.

“Come on, love. Let’s get our stuff in the car.”
