Author's Note

Heloo my loves! How are all of you doing today? First, i would like to say that i am sorry i have not update in while just got back from a trip. 

Now, before i tell you the information that you need to know; i would like you all to understand and to not be upset about what i am about to say to all of you.

I have decided that when i am updating i would like to set some goals for you all to reach before i update again. Like certain amounts of votes and comments. However, since it is the first time that i will be doing my updates this way and so none of you think that i am asking for too much and decided to just stop reading my story because if it; i have set a goal. 

The goal for this chapter will be small so i have decided that the goal should at least be four comments and votes. (not including mine).  That way, in the future, deepending the the amount of feedback i will will determine how i will change my goals or if i shouldn't make any at all.

I am so sorry that this author's note was long but i just had to get my pint across and everything out of the way. Now, i am done so please enjoy this chpater! LOVE YOU ALL!!!XXXXX

P.S: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE also leave song suggestions down below. it can be random songs or songs that you feel fits my story so far or fits Harry and Ellie.

P.P.S: What should Harry and Ellie's ship name be? i am stumped!!!! ahh!!

Elizabeth’s POV

Our holiday was great; I could not imagine anything better. However, my friends treated me to the best days of my life so I thought maybe it’s my turn to return the favor. So, I called my mom and asked if we could borrow the lake house for the weekend and she agreed.

“Are you sure this is okay?” Eleanor asked me as the guys started to take stuff out of the car, hollowing them inside.

“Yes, my mom agreed to it, silly” I said taking my bag from the backseat of the car and slammed the car door shut. I took off my sunglasses no longer needing them placing them on top of my head. The day was perfect and we arrived at the best time anyone could possibly imagine. The sun was still up but it was no longer too hot or blinding.

Eleanor smiled at me and grabbed her stuff that she had placed on the ground earlier and walked with me up the wooden porch steps, heading inside.

I was about to walk up the stairs when my phone started to ring. I pulled it out of my back washed- out jean pocket; I pressed the answer button pressing it against my ear.


“Elizabeth?” My eyebrows shoot up in surprise.

“Dad?” I asked, not too sure if it was really him. I listened closely.

“Yea, it’s me. Look, I need you to tell you something important” he said sternly. I shook my head; I really do not have time for this. Yes, it must sound really mean but we still haven’t spoken since the day he kicked me out. So why should he have the right to call me now?

I groaned. “Dad, if this is about Harry, I don’t want to hear it.” I said shaking my head turning around and watched everyone run around back and forth from the living room and into the kitchen, trying to sort things out.

“It’s not about Harry, Elizabeth” He paused with a sigh. “Well not technically” he trailed off.

“Dad, I really do not want to argue with you and-“

“No, Elizabeth. Listen to me” My dad’s voice raised a few octaves. “This is important for you to know and-“  I rolled my eyes.

“Bye, dad” I said and hanged up the phone before he had time to make up another lame excuse as to why Harry is a horrible person. Yes Harry, has done a lot of things but we worked it out.  I am not going to let him ruin my parade of fun with all of my best friends. If it’s that important he should have told me when I went to go pick up the key to the lake house, instead of hiding away in his office upstairs like a hermit in his ivory tower.

“Is everything okay, Ellie?” Sophia asked me with her arms crossed over her chest.

I nodded. “Yea” I smiled at her and walked up the stairs to put my stuff in my room.

“Alright, so who is ready to go swimming?” Louis said clapping his hands together.

“Yes!” Everyone cheered, except for me. It’s not that I don’t want to go swimming; I just hate being in deep water. There is just something about not being able to touch my feet at the bottom that really gets me scared and anxious.

“You know what, you guys go ahead. I’ll just stay in here and figure out what we are going to eat” I suggested.

“No” Harry whined, he had his arm wrapped around my waist. He was wearing his signature black skinny jeans and plaited shirt with the sleeves torn off showing off his tattooed arms.

“We already know what we are going to eat love. Niall and Zayn are going to cook us some hot dogs on the grill outside” Harry said in a soft voice giving me a small shrug. “Is this about your fear of being in deep water?”

“No” I shook my head.

“Liar” Louis said in a sing song voice and I glanced over to him, narrowing my eyes.

“Aw, Ellie. Don’t worry about that.” Perrie said motioning her hand in the hair signaling me to just blow it off. “You don’t have to go in the deep water if you don’t have to. You can always stay closer to shore.”

“Also, if you’d like you we can sit with you so we can get a tan?” Sophia smiled at me tilting her head to the side.

I bit on my lower lip letting out a deep breathe, contemplating for a moment before I spoke. “Okay” I nodded, giving in.  This is why I love my friends, even though some of them tease me, they always know how to cheer me up.

“Alright, let’s go change!” I said excitedly running out of Harry’s grip grabbing the girl’s hands and ran up the stairs.

“Girls” I heard Louis scoff when we were hallway up the staircase.
