"You're sure I didn't overdo it?" Tina asked walking outside with her fingers tangled with his. Her free hand brushed the satin fabric of her dress. "I wasn't sure what you meant by fancy and I saw this dress and I couldn't not get it. It was gorgeous."

"You look perfect, Tina," Louis told her, leading her towards his car. "Absolute perfection. I didn't think it was possible for someone to be this gorgeous."

"I'd like to think I was this gorgeous before and without all the fancy hair and make-up," she smirked in response and set down from the curb. "But, thank you," she smiled and kissed his cheek as he pulled open the car door. She let out a quiet laugh and leaned into the car, taking a seat as she smoothed out his dress. "I'll take it as a compliment," she told him and pulled her legs up into the car.

Louis shut the door quietly, for her and walked around the front of the car and climbed into the driver seat. He pulled on the blazer top and grabbed the car keys from his front pocket, pushing them into the ignition but didn't turn the car on. Instead, he just held his hand there and the other on the top of the steering wheel.

"I don't normally do this but, I will give you free rein of the radio," he told her. "You can listen to anything just, I beg you, no country, Tina. No country."

"Well, just for that, country it is," she grinned brightly as he turned the engine on and Tina immediately reached for the knob. She fumbled to find a good station to set the tone of the date and settled on something from the 1975. She hummed happily when she heard the lyrics and leaned her head back, turning to watch Louis as he focused on the road in front of him.

"What are you looking at?" He laughed, his eyes moving over to her for a split second before coming back to the ground in front of them.

"Oh nothing," she hummed again and took a deep breath. "Where are we going?"

"A restaurant," he said bluntly and grinned at her. "You'll know it when you see it, I'm sure."

"Okay, I'll trust you," she laughed. "How was your day today? I meant to ask earlier but I was getting so many compliments from you that I couldn't interrupt."

"It's been good," he nodded. "I'm sure it'll be getting better though."

"Don't push your luck, Tomlinson," Tina smirked.

"Do I get a prize if I do?" He asked quietly and Tina couldn't help but let out a giggle. It was odd sound to leave her mouth but then again, she hadn't been on a proper day since freshmen year. After that, her and Louis got into a situation that although they had agreed to it only being a friend's things, they never bother to move onto someone else for an actual relationship with titles.

"I don't know about that," she laughed.

"Well, it was worth a try," he shrugged his shoulders. "Alright, what about you? How was your day?"

"Good," she nodded. "Learned that Indie might actually be letting somebody in. She says it's a causal thing but I can tell by the way she gets flustered around him that it clearly won't end that way."

"Harry and Indie?" He questioned.

"How'd you know?" She asked sarcastically.

"You could feel the sexual tension between them," he laughed. "Maybe letting it out will make it less awkward to be around the two of them together."

Tina just snickered at the comment, finding that it was truth. She wasn't sure if Indie had exaggerated the feelings between the two but after having lunch with the both of them, she could see it with her own two eyes that the two were meant to be more than just friends.
