I'm trying something different here, bear with me lol

▪▪▪▪
Louis' POV

I'm sitting on the settee watching Harry cook, and wondering why everyone hates me so much.

I hear Harry start to sing softly, it wouldn't be abnormal for him to do so, but this was a different song, one I didn't know.

"If I could fly, I'd be coming right back home to you."
"I think I might, give up everything just ask me to."
Then he stays quiet for a moment, maybe he was still thinking of the words?

"Pay attention, I hope that you listen, cause I let my guard down.
Right now I'm completely defenceless."

His voice is so beautiful, I could truly listen to him singing all day.

"For your eyes only, I show you my heart.
For when you're lonely, and forget who you are."

I look over at him, but his eyes are already locked on me.
Is this song... for me?

"I'm missing half of me, when we're apart.
Now you know me, for your eyes only."

I can feel myself tearing up.

He wrote a song for me.

Harry's eyes stay locked on mine when he keeps singing, making this all seem so much more special.

"You've got scars, even though they can't always be seen.
I know pain gets hard, but now I'm here and you won't feel a thing."

Fuck this really is for me.
I usually only wear short sleeves when we're at home, due to my cuts on my arms. So obviously Harry knows about them- and since a couple days ago, basically the whole internet knows.

"Pay attention, I hope that you listen, 'cause I let my guard down.
Right now I'm completely defenceless."

I know what's coming, and even though I can't sing, I find myself joining in.

"For your eyes only, I'll show you my heart.
For when you're lonely, or forget who you are.
I'm missing half of me, when we're apart.
Now you know me, for your eyes only."
We sing

And then he stops, and walks towards me.
He sits down next to me, and pulls me closer to him so we're cuddling.
I automatically bury my head in his neck, and I feeling his arm slip around my waist.

"I wrote that song for you, I didn't know you could sing." Harry says quietly, whilst he starts stroking my hair with his left over hand softly.

"I like singing, I've just always been told I'm shit." I mumble out.

"You're not shit, you're amazing. You could have a career in singing if you weren't already so beautiful. No one should be this talented." He whispers back, planting small kisses on the back of my head.

"The only people that have ever said I'm not shit are you, and my mum." I sniffle, burying my face deeper into Harry's neck, and putting my arms around his waist, to hold him like he was holding me.

"Your mum was, and is so proud of you Lou. She loved you so much."
I stay silent. By now there are a few tears falling from my eyes, I missed my mum so much. I'd done so much wrong and she still loved me like crazy, a person like that doesn't deserve to die.

I'm the one that should have died.

"Don't say that Lou." Harry whispers now, emotion evident in his voice.

"But I do, my mum didn't do anything wrong, she would have had such an amazing life."

"What about you then? You would have been just wasted talent." Harry argues

"Yeah, wasted talent that no one cares about. Wasted talent that has serious issues and can't even go outside alone anymore without wanting to jump in front of a car."

"Don't say that, please.
Lou I need you, you're my second half."

I stay silent.

Then Harry stops stroking my hair, and softly grabs me by my jaw with his hand.
He points my face in his direction, and kisses my lips.

The kiss is slow, and passionate.
It's a kiss so full of love that i didn't even know was possible.

When his lips leave mine, I immediately feel something missing.

"I love you so much Lou, never forget that."

"I appreciate you more than you could ever imagine Haz.
Thank you."

Ops on this type of stuff?
I cried while writing this lol, IICF is my favourite song by the boys as a band, and it makes me so emotional :(

Oh and I changed a couple of the lyrics to for the story slightly more :)

I hope this wasn't too weird, but please tell me because I would really like to incorporate more chapters like this into this book :)
