The week after was a whirlwind of excitement and hard work as finals were inching closer and closer. Lauren and Camila hadn't spent as much time together as they would have liked, and had yet to go on a date but Lauren didn't mind. Camila, however, was a bit nervous about the whole thing. Not about being with Lauren in general, but the whole being with a woman and out on campus thing. All of the 5H girl's knew about them of course and were super supportive, but she couldn't help but feel nervous and insecure about being so public with everything.

She never told Lauren though she was afraid it would make her look weak or that she was ashamed of their relationship. But really, everything was moving faster than she had ever experienced or imagined. At the same time she felt completely free whenever she was with Lauren and knew that should be the only thing that mattered, but that nagging voice in the back of her mind refused to kindly shut up.

It made her that much more insecure about herself.

Luckily Ally has a good eye for knowing when someone was worrying too much.

"Hey Mila, what is up with you? I thought you would be this radiating ball of energy now that you're with Lauren."

The brunette tried to smile wide but failed and knew she was caught. "I am, I am so excited. And... I mean she's just amazing and I want her in every way." Camila paused and blushed at her confession. Ally just sent her a knowing smile.

"I just... I'm just nervous you know? I mean, what if I mess this up and what if everyone else doesn't accept us? I'm just so scared."

Ally just smiled fondly at the other girl. "Mila, that is completely normal. But you know people are pretty open here so I don't think you have anything to worry about. Plus all the Fifth Harmony members are cool with it, so we can take care of anyone who isn't." She said with a wink.

Camila giggled a little "I know they are, I'm just nervous. I don't want anything bad to happen."

"Have you told Lauren how you feel?" The brunette shook her head in response and Ally clicked her tongue a couple of times. "Girl you gotta be honest with your girl. You know she's probably been through the same thing before and could really help you. Plus that's what she's there for, you're going through everything together."

"I know... I just didn't want her to think that I'm weak or something. But I don't even know if I'm totally ready to be out to everyone else, you know?"

"I hear ya. It's a lot to take in especially in a short period of time. I know Laurenza would love to show you off to the world, but only when you're ready. You should really talk to her."

"I know, I know I will I promise. Thanks Ally."

The two girls didn't notice that they were being watched from across the room. The 5H captain turned to the other girl who had a small smile on her face.

"You know if you hurt her I'll do more than have wolves rip out your vocal cords." She said in a serious tone.

Lauren wanted to laugh at the fact that she used the whole wolves reference but knew that Normani was serious about the whole situation and just smiled at the taller brunette.

"You know it's my goal to treat her better than anyone else she's had in her life. I mean anyone." The brunette raised her eyebrow slightly and Normani knew she was included in that statement. She blushed knowing she's been a bit unfair to Camila at times, but of course at the time thought she was doing what was best.

"And I assure you that I'll make sure you keep your word on that."

"I wouldn't have it any other way. I should also say that you shouldn't hurt Dinah. Because you know... I've taken down two guys before so..."
