Harry’s POV

                My mate, Louis, and I were playing video games in our flat.  We were both sitting on the couch starring at the plasma screen in front of us and pushing each other every now and then so one of us would lose.

                “So mate you finally asked Elizabeth out?” Louis said still keeping his gaze on the screen.

“Well kind of, I asked her to go to the winter formal with me.”

“Wait, so you didn’t actually ask her out on a date?”

“Um…no. Should I have asked her?” I asked raising one of my eyebrows at him but still keeping my attention on shooting my gun in the video game.

My head suddenly jerked forward. “Louis!” I said putting the game on pause with my controller and rubbed the back of my head.

                “Don’t you Louis me". he said scowling at me. " Man, you are like head over heels for his girl since you saw her”

“Yea, so what’s your point? It’s not like we are going to last”

“You always think the worst of yourself. I thought the same thing with Eleanor but it all comes down to honesty Harry. You never know if you don’t try” He said leaning back on the couch looking at me. I bit my lip and looked down at the floor.

“Mate, I’m taking Eleanor to the fair tonight. Why won’t you call Elizabeth and ask her if she wants to come. If you don’t want it to be just a double date thing; I can call the lads and they can all come with their babes as well.

I looked at him and smiled. “Alright Louis, I’ll give it a shot. The worst that she can do is say no.” I told him with a shrug standing up and pulled out my phone from my pocket.

“See that’s the spirit!” Louis said cheering me on and I rolled my eyes and dialed Elizabeth’s number.
