I couldn’t help but smile at his words, looking straight ahead at the empty lot. Barely any cars passed by us in the street up ahead, looking so deserted that I found myself waiting for tumbleweed to roll by.

          Harry then jumped off the hood, and I watched as he opened the driver’s side door. Watching through the windshield, I saw Harry start up the car and turn on the radio, and Bound To You by Christina Aguilera played softly through the speakers.

          “I felt like we needed some music,” he tells me as he sits next to me once again.

          I smiled in response, putting the bag of chips away as the two of us lay down on the car, leaning against the windshield as we looked up at the dark sky. For the first time, I actually saw multiple stars decorating the dark blue night sky.

Sweet love, sweet love

Trapped in your love

I’ve opened up, unsure I can trust

My heart and I were buried in dust

Free me, free us

You’re all I need when I’m holding you tight

If you walk away, I will suffer tonight.

I found a man I can trust

And boy, I believe in us

I am terrified to love for the first time

Can you see that I’m bound in chains?

I've finally found my way.

          My hands rested on my stomach as I listened to the lyrics of the song, biting down softly on my lower lip.

I am bound to you 

I am bound to you

So much, so young I’ve faced on my own

Walls I built up became my home

I’m strong and I’m sure there’s a fire in us

Sweet love, so pure

I catch my breath with just one beating heart

And I embrace myself, please don’t tear this apart.

          The lyrics spoke so clearly, making me bite my bottom lip more harshly than before. I kept starting up at the starry sky as Harry and I silently listened to the music, hearing Christina Aguilera’s perfect voice. As I listened to the song, I realized how much I could relate to it.

          How a girl is tied to this one guy, and is scared of letting her true feelings from him surface. She’s young and has gone through so much already, and that with the help of the guy, she’s been able to go through it. She finally trusts someone, and it’s only a matter of time until she finally tells him how she really feels.

          “Kelsey?” Harry’s questioning voice asks as the song ends, and I turn my head to the left to look at him. “You’re crying,” he spoke softly.

          I let out a sigh as I sat up, wiping away the tears that had accidently escaped, hating the fact that I was such an emotional crier. I cried if I was the slightest bit sad, or extremely happy. It got super annoying, and I felt like it made me feel weak and pathetic. And I didn’t want to cry over this, especially in front of Harry. How embarrassing.

          “I’m alright,” I sniffled as Harry sat up as well, looking at me with a concerned expression.

          “Then why are you crying?” he asks quietly, reaching over and tucking a strand of my blond hair behind my left ear.

          I look down at my lap, twiddling my thumbs as I nibble on my bottom lips. “I don’t know,” I tell him honestly. “The song… It just…”

          “Relates too much?” he supplies and I nod. Harry sighs before standing up from the hood of the car and standing in front of me. He then stood in between my legs and I pressed my lips together, looking up at him. When he sees my eyes begin to tear up – someone shoot me – he cups my face and wipes them away with the pad of his thumbs. “Don’t cry.”

          “I don’t know why I am,” I chuckle humorlessly. “So pathetic,” I add with a quiet mumble.

          “It’s not pathetic,” Harry says sternly, tilting my face up to look at him straight in the green eyes. “You’re not pathetic.”

          I stayed quiet for a couple of seconds, just staring at Harry’s perfect face. Like any other guy, he had a bit of acne dotted around his forehead, but I didn’t care. His cute freckles stood out a bit, the light breeze blowing around us moving his hair a bit.

          Instead of saying anything, I leaned up a bit and pressed my lips against his softly, my eyes closing. Harry instantly responds to the kiss, his hands cupping my face pulling me closer. He leans forward as I lean back, lying halfway on my back on the car as his hands go down and press against the car as my own hands cup his face.

          As we pull away, I feel Harry’s right hand hold my left, before he brings it up and pulls it between the two of us, letting me see my hand clearly. “This ring means you’re mine,” he speaks softly as I stare at him intently. “It also means that I will always be there for you, no matter what. And I know that usually you first tell the girl you love her and then give her the ring, but obviously that’s not the case.”

          He chuckles as my heart skips a beat before beating erratically. Harry’s green eyes meet my blue ones as he licks his bottom lip before taking a breath. “I love you, Kelsey,” he says, causing me to inhale a sharp breath. “I really do; and I’m actually so glad that your mother chose me for your hand in marriage. I really do love you, Kels.”

          I let out a breath of disbelief, as Harry’s hand squeezes mine, and I couldn’t help but smile. It felt as if a heavy weight that had been pressing on my chest had finally been lifted, and it brought a big smile on my face.

          “Harry, I…” I trailed off, a smile cutting my sentence. Regaining my posture, I finished, “I love you, too.”

          Harry grinned, dimples deepening, causing my own smile to widen. “That’s a relief,” he says before pecking my lips softly, lovingly. “Come on,” he adds with a small smile, “let’s go back.”

          With a nod and a smile, Harry helps me off the car before we sit back inside, driving back to the hotel where the rest of the boys and Eleanor await us.


Oh my God, I swear, I was halfway through the chapter when I found Christina Aguilera's song, Bound To You.

I didn't even know it existed, honestly, until I searched the word "Bound" on Google to find some songs for the chapter, and I came across this one. I listened to it, and it relates to Kelsey and Harry perfectly.

So, what'd you think???

What's Harry & Kelsey's ship name?

Helsey or Karry?
