Twice in one week and an ACED update?! Who am I?

Elodie Chapman

One month later...

They say time flies when you're having fun. I never really believed it before but now that a month has flown past right before my eyes. It is starting to make a little more sense.

Harry and I have been on a stable and steady incline since things heated up between us. So far we have only had one argument and that was over if we should order Indian food or pizza for dinner one night.

I won and we got Indian food.

One thing about Harry is that he is stubborn, he always has been but I am more so. Another thing about him is that he is a pushover when it comes to me. I've learnt that all I have to do is bat my eyelids and smile sweetly at him and he melts.

He is a gooey, sappy shit with me but around everyone else he is the same grumpy rockstar who doesn't give a shit about anyone but himself.

And me.

I don't think I have been happier. That sounds silly and quite childish but bare with me. I'm not basing my happiness on that fact that I am in whatever this situation ship with Harry is. I'm not that invested that I am letting my emotions depend on him. But I guess in some ways they do depend on him. He has managed to make me the happiest I have been and I don't know how he does it.

He barely even has to try but I feel like I am floating. Being with him feels like finally seeing things in colour again. It was like the switch had flicked on and suddenly I was recharged with electrical current. He was a breath of fresh air, a familiar comfort. He made me feel as if I was made of sunshine.

He did say that I was his sunset.

But maybe he is mine too.

The beautiful end to all the pain we have both felt.

What if we are that for each other.

It is hard to really know the future but I have my fingers crossed. I so badly want this to work out. It is refreshing to feel so calm and content with someone.  It is strange to feel so secure in something so new but with Harry I can't help but feel safe and steady.

He has been so sweet and attentive recently that I don't even know how to function around him. Sometimes I feel like I am just waiting for the ball to drop and for everything that we have been working so hard to build to come crashing down.

"Do you know the shit I had to go through to find this shit for you?" Harry's booming voice crashes through the hotel room just after the key card beeps in the lock. "Do you have to be so fucking specific with the nail polish?"

I smile up at him while he storms through our room with a small little paper bag from the drug store.

"It is the best one I have found." I grin, holding my hand out for the bag.

"It's so fuckin' hard to find Ellie. I got stopped for pictures about six times in the fucking nail polish aisle."

He passes me the bag, ducking down to press a kiss to my cheek before walking towards the desk and kicking his shoes off.

"What they have pictures of you buying lilac nail polish?"

"Probably." I dig around in the paper bag to find two bottles of nail polish. One was the specific shade of lilac from my favourite brand and the other was from the same brand but was black. There are also two cans of Pepsi kicking about in the bottom of the bag. "I stopped at the corner shop down the road to grab a drink. Figured you'd want Pepsi."
