"Well! Maria you had us all in for a scare there! You’re good to go now. As I explained to you earlier, cramps like this and stomach pains are natural for how far you are. Just make sure to take this medication and you should be fine." The doctor explained as he handed Louis a prescription.
"Thank god everything’s fine Maria. And thanks Doc, I’ll make sure to take good care of her." Louis asked squeezing her hand.
Rachel sat behind them silently, anxiously waiting to get home. Maria really had frightened them all.
"Okay, well if you’re ready to go now babe, we'll go home.”
Maria smiled and nodded. Rachel watched as the couple got up, Maria with a bit of Louis help and having him by his side. It was nice to see that after coming from such a troublesome family, Maria had Louis by her side at all times. He was responsible and caring enough not to leave her and such hard times. Rachel smiled and pulled her jacket out following them into the car.
"Okay easy now, one step at a time, I’ve got you." Louis guided Maria back into Rachel's house. She finally sat down relaxing and shutting her eyes.
"Lou, let's give her some time alone. You go home and rest now. Maria will have some rest as well, and until then I'll be back with some catching up with Harry. Alright?" Rachel consoled Louis as he watched Maria protectively.
"Sounds good, thanks for calling me right away Rach. I don't know what I'd do without you, honestly." Louis said to her gratefully.
"I've told you so many times Lou, It's alright." Rachel's face beamed as she touched Louis shoulder.
He hugged her and then finally left taking one more look back at Maria to make sure she was sleeping okay.
After he left, Rachel received a call from Harry.
"Hey babe! So, how about we go to the movies or something? We really need to catch up!" Harry’s voice seemed as excited as always. Rachel blushed, hearing his voice through her phone just brought her such a great feeling.
"Yea! That sounds great? Which movie? Oh god! We soo have to see Women in Black!" Rachel suggested excited.
"Oh yeah! I'm coming over right now! You better hurry up and get ready, I'll be there any minute!" Harry said with his flirty voice.
"Alright I'll be waiting.” Rachel quickly shut the phone, and got out her date outfit she had been saving for a while.
Finally, a date with Harry. No Kate. No one else.
Just them two.
"I've seriously got to start bringing my own coat! With this weather anything is possible!" Rachel complained rubbing her arms.
It was a cold afternoon, while Harry and Rachel were walking toward the movie theatre.
"Nope, I just think you use it as an excuse to borrow mine!" Harry laughed as he covered Rachel with his coat.
"Hmm, I guess you caught me!" Rachel smiled, as Harry pulled her chin up lightly to kiss her. Rachel put her arm around Harry's waist and they entered the movie theatre.
"Alright, I'll grab the tickets and how about you grab the snacks." Harry suggested pulling out his wallet.
"Sounds good, butter popcorn?" Rachel asked taking the money Harry offered.
She had already learnt that there was no point in rejecting money from Harry. When he said take it, he meant take it. Always a gentlemen.
"You know me well." Harry smiled before he walked off to get into line.
Rachel headed into the opposite direction to get in line for snacks. She ordered her popcorn, and paid the cashier.
"Thank you!" Rachel said grabbing her snacks, but as she turned around she bumped into someone.
Of course, it was....
All the popcorn Rachel was carrying had fallen to the floor, as Rachel caught Kate smirking.
"Oops! Sorry about that... Rachel is it?" Kate asked rudely, obviously knowing her name.
Rachel forced a smile on her face. "It's fine." Rachel picked up the popcorn bag.
Kate just stood there in her spot in line, not even bothering to help her out. "So what are you doing here? On a date or what?" Kate asked arrogantly.
"Yep. I'm actually here with Harry." Rachel answered putting emphasis on Harry. If Kate was always trying to get in their way, now was Rachel’s chance to brag as much as she could about being with Harry.
