Elizabeth’s POV

I turned to look at Chloe and sat up crossing my legs. “Since you know for sure that you are going to the winter formal, what dress are you going to wear?”

“I don’t know I’m thinking about going today to shop for it. Will you two come with me please! ” She said pressing her hands together in front of her chest pleading at us.

Emily laughed and I just smiled and shook my head. “Of course we will go shopping with you.”

“Hey Ellie!” I heard my name being called and I looked up and saw Harry jog his way towards us and shook his hair away from his face.

“Hey girls” He said giving a small wave to Chloe and Emily and they just smiled at him.

“What’s up Haz?” I asked standing up. “Aren’t you supposed to be running laps?” I asked giving him a smirk glancing behind him watching his teammates zigzag around plastic cones.

Harry looked behind him and let out a small chuckle. “Uh yea.. I told coach I had to go to the loo. “ he said with a shrug. I giggled at him.

“The truth is I came over to see if I could talk to you” He said placing his hand on the back of his neck.

“Hey Elizabeth we are going to go back to the group” Chloe said standing next to Emily and motioning back to the rest of the team who were going over the routine again. I nodded at them and they smiled and jogged their way over.

“Of course you can talk to me Harry” I said shaking my head with a small smile. “If this is about what happened on the bus ride back home from the camping trip. It’s okay, we agreed we were going to move passed it and –“ I said and Harry shook his head.

“No no it’s not about that” he said biting his lip and scratched the back of his head with his right hand. “I was wondering if you wanted to go to the winter formal with me?”

I blinked at him letting his words sink in. Did he really ask me? He looked at my expression and his eyes widened a little.

“I mean you don’t have to, I just thought it might be nice to go and I know that it’s last minute but you know I just moved here and-“

“Harry it’s okay. “ I  giggled at him stopping his little panic attack. “I would love to go to the winter formal with you” I said and he smiled at me.

“Styles!” We heard his coach yell at him. He had his arms up holding a clipboard in his hand and holding his whistle between his teeth.

“Yea give me a minute!” Harry yelled back at him cupping his hands around his mouth then turned back to me.

“So I’ll pick you up around seven?” he asked raising his eyebrows at me crossing his arms over his chest.

“Yea that’s fine” I said reaching over and tightened my ponytail.

“Is there anything specific that you want me to color coordinate with you or something?” He asked but before I could answer I got interrupted by Mandy yelling at me.

“Elizabeth practice has started again!” she said holding her arms out.

“Yea ..I’ll be right there!” I said and she just nodded but rolled her eyes at me. I turned back around to face Harry.

“What if we talk about it later?” he said smiling at me. “Both of us will get our heads cut off if we don’t get back to practice”

I nodded and gave him a hug and we went our separate ways. I jogged over to the group and everyone was picking up their bags from the ground. Emily had mine in her hand and she handed it over to me.

“Practice is over Elizabeth.” Mandy said looking at me while the co- captains were standing on either side of her. “Maybe if you would waste less time on your stupid bad boy maybe you would be able to do routine.” Her friends let out a small laughed and they walked away. I rolled my eyes at him.

“Just ignore her she is just jealous cause she wants Harry but Harry wants you instead” Chloe said and Emily nodded.

“So what did he want to talk to you about?” Chloe said as we made our way back to the locker room.

“Oh nothing, he just asked me to the winter formal” I said playing it off as if it was nothing. They both stopped in their tracks and looked at each other and squealed holding each other’s hands and jumped up and down in place.

“I knew it I told you!!” Emily said and I laughed.

“So I guess we can all go shopping now” I said and we walked inside the locker room to change.
