 Elizabeth’s POV

Throughout the flight so far, Harry and I haven’t spoken. It’s not that I didn’t want to I just didn’t know what to say. It’s so hard knowing that I was the one that left and here we are sitting on a plane next to each other going on holiday.  

I am having an inner battle with myself because I know I should hate him with all of my guts. I know I should not forgive him so easily but it’s so difficult not to. I shake my head to get rid of my scattered thoughts.

Unfortunately, my IPod battery drowned out and we are only halfway through our flight. Now, I am resorted to occasionally look out the window and pretend to not notice that Harry is stealing glances at me while he does the same.

Harry’s hand is resting on the arm rest a few inches away from mine as he is bobbing his head to the beat of music that he is listening through his white earphones. I am so tempted to touch his hand, I feel like there is this electric pull that is urging me to do so.

I casually look over at Harry and he looks at me as soon as I do. He lips curl up in a small smile and he pulls off one of his earphones and hands it to me.  I smile shyly up at him and grab the earphone from him and our fingertips touch causing my stomach to turn. I place the earphone on and he presses play on his IPod screen.

The song sounds so relaxing, I couldn’t think of anything better. I am making a promise to myself that I will ignore what has happened back at home and just start over while we are on holiday. I kept listening to the song that was playing from his iPod but slowly I started to close my eyes until I couldn’t hold them open any longer.

Harry’s POV

I was scanning through the various movies they had on the small television screen that was attached to the back of the seat in front of me when I felt something on my shoulder. I turned my head and saw Elizabeth, she was sleeping. I smiled and slowly leaned closer to her so she could properly lay her head. About half an hour later, I gave up on trying to find something to watch and let sleep take over me.

Eleanor’s POV

“Hey, Louis” I said turning my head to look at him.

“Hmm” he said turning to face me.

“How do you think they are doing?” I asked him pointing my thumb behind us to Harry and Elizabeth. Louis shrugged.

“They have been awfully quiet” he stated with a nod. We slowly got up from our seats just enough to peak over the top of the seats to look at them. I smiled, happily once I saw them.

Elizabeth was sleeping on Harry’s shoulder while Harry rested his head on top of hers; the both of them had an earphone stuck into their ears. I scanned over them and saw that their hands were interlocked in Harry’s lap.

Louis and I turned to look at each other and slowly sunk back down into our seats.

“It worked” I smiled happily and rested my head on Louis’s shoulder. “Now, all that’s left to do is plan Elizabeth’s birthday and make this the best holiday she has ever had.”
