I'm so excited for Halloween tonight. El and I are going on a double date with Perrie and Zayn, and Liam and Tyler are going on a double date with Niall and Juliet. It'll be awesome. Clara and Harry have decided to stay in, seeing as it's only been four days since Clara lost her memory. We were worried it would be too overwhelming for her to be out on Halloween night. But the other eight of us are dressing up and going trick-or-treating before we go our seperate ways. Eleanor and I are the most excited because Halloween is our favourite holiday. We're even matching, both going as mimes. We have no idea what everyone else is dressing up as, it's a surprise. No one else knows what we're going as, either.
"When's Lou gonna get here to do our make up?" I ask Eleanor, who's in charge of our costumes.
"In about ten minutes," El tells me. "We should get dressed now, baby."
"Okay," I agree, kissing her softly on the lips before going upstairs to get dressed, Eleanor following close behind. We get into our matching black and white striped t-shirts, black semi-cropped pants, and red TOMS. A moment later, the doorbell rings and I race downstairs to get it.
"Hey, Lou!" I grin at my friend.
"Hey, Louis," Lou rolls her eyes. "Let's get this over with--I still have two more couples to do."
"Any chance you'll tell me what they're going to be?" I ask hopefully.
"Absolutely not," Lou replies with a shrug. It's my turn to roll my eyes.
"Okay, then. Let's get started," Lou rubs her hands together and gets started on Eleanor.
Ugh, it's Halloween. Probably my least favorite holiday. It's so annoying. I mean, who the fuck wants to dress up in costumes and eat candy? Not me. The only holiday I hate more is fucking Valentine's Day. It's so...ugh. Sappy. And touchy-feely. I can't believe I agreed to go on a fucking double date with Niall and those annoying shits. Now I actually have to wear a matching costume with Niall? Ew. Lou already did our make up, and she's annoying as fuck. We're fucking bumblebees. Who the fuck dresses up as a fucking bumblebee at twenty one years old? Obviously Niall Horan. Niall walks into the room and I fake a smile for the millionth time today. Seriously? Thank God I'm allowed to break up with him tonight. Jace has decided that he's gotten enough revenge on Harry, so I'll be free to go as long as nothing else happenes tonight. Thank God... The only problem is that Jace is going to be in Jail for another thirty years, maybe more. I guess I'll have to use my pull in the police to get him out of there then. And he won't be allowed to attempt murder or rape anymore. Besides, he'll have me.
"Hey, love," Niall smiles, giving me a kiss on the lips. "You ready to go?"
I almost feel bad for the softie. He wasn't the asshole--that was Harry. "Yeah, let me just get my shoes on."
I get my shoes on and we're out the door. Oh, joy. Time to trick-or-treat! Shoot me now...
My stomach is filled with butterflies. This will be the first night that I spend alone with Harry. After I lost my memory, of course. I'm reminded of that every day when Harry looks at me. He tries to hide it, but I know that he's upset that I can't remember anything. We had something special, I can feel that much. I just wish I knew what it was. I sigh and go to my closet to get out the outfit that Eleanor helped me pick out. She's awesome. I understand why I would have been friends with her. Tyler and I haven't really talked much--I found out pretty early on that she's always around Liam. Like, always. It sort of sucks, but I've made new friends, and my three friends stay in the same house as me. Yes, friends. Harry and I aren't dating right now. Not yet. I decided that I want to get to know him better before we started dating again. I assume that eventually we'll start dating, but that's not going to happen yet. I look in the mirror and smile, satisfied with how I look in my skinny jeans and what was, apparently, Harry's favorite top.
