Harry and I spent the next week together, hanging out at the beach. We met every morning at 7 o’clock at a specific spot on the beach. At night, Harry would walk me home and kiss me goodnight.

“Anna, do you like boats?” Harry asked me one night.

“What do you mean by that?”

“Do you like boat rides?”

“Yeah, I guess. Why?”

“Well, I have a boat and tomorrow the boys and I are taking it for a ride. Do you want to come?”

“What do you guys do on that boat when you take it for a ride?”

“We usually have a scary movie marathon. But we can do something different this time since I know you’re not a fan of scary stuff.”

“That’s fine. We can watch scary movies.”

“Anna –”

“It’s fine!” I cut him off. “I’ll sit beside you and I’ll be fine.”

“Are you sure? The boys won’t mind.”

“Yes, I’m sure.”

“Okay then. See you tomorrow.”

“Bye, I love you.”

“I love you too, Anna.”

Harry kissed me and left. The next morning, I got ready and headed to Harry’s house. I was really excited about going on a boat ride and to prove to everyone that I am capable of watching a scary movie without hiding my face in someone’s shoulder.

“You’re early!” Harry said after giving me my good morning kiss.

“Oh yes! I couldn’t wait to see those scary movies!”


“Oh god no! I wanted to see you.”

“That’s more like it.” Harry said with his cheeky smile.

“I’m actually kind of excited about the movies though.”

“Oh yeah? And why’s that?”

“There are two reasons. The first is I get to prove that I am capable of watching a scary movie without hiding. The second is that I get to hide my face on your shoulder if my first reason fails.”

“Ah! I hope your first reason fails then.”


“What? I want to cuddle with you.”

“I’ll still cuddle even if I don’t get scared.”

“Okay then, I wish you the best of luck with your first reason.”

“Thank you!”

“No problem beautiful! We better get going now.”

When we got to the boat, everyone was already there. Liam, Niall, Zayn, Louis, and Gemma were just standing there talking.

“Hi, you two.” Gemma greeted us.

“Why are you here?” Harry asked.

“Louis invited me.”

“Oh, the joy!”

“Don’t worry Harry. We’re not going on the boat. I just wanted to tell Anna that I’ll be back late tonight so, Anna, you’ll be alone for supper. There’s pizza in the fridge.” Louis said.
