She did amazing work.
"Wow." I breathed out.
"You look stunning." Anne told me from her seat.
"Thank you." I smiled.
Gemma styled my hair up with a few tundrels down. It was almost a little messy, which made it perfect.
My makeup was simple just like I liked it. She did a perfect cat eye.
I went into the bathroom to slip on my red dress. It looked even better on now that I was all made up. I put on my nude heels and took one last look at my outfit.
I felt beautiful.
I opened the bathroom door and stepped our. Anne and Gemma started gawking over me. I hugged them both and thanked them.
"What are you thanking us for, sweetheart?" Anne questioned.
"For being so welcoming."
Anne gave me another hug before we left the room. Harry had been gone most of the day, but he returned when I started getting ready. Gemma and Anne wouldn’t let him see me.
He was waiting for me downstairs. I took a deep breath before I followed Anne and Gemma down the stairs.
Harry appeared from the living room and he watched as I walked down the steps.
He started to smile and my nerves went away.
"You look phenomenal." Harry told me when I finally made my way to him.
He was wearing a white button down shirt with black pants and a skinny black tie. He had on his usual boots and I smiled.
"So do you." I said.
I saw a camera flash and looked over at Gemma and Anne. They were both taking photos of Harry and I.
"This feels like we are going to an awkward school dance." I laughed.
"Have a fun time." Anne gave Harry and I each a hug before she and Gemma gathered their things. They were going out to dinner also.
When they left, Harry turned to me.
"I need you to put this on." He handed me a blindfold.
He nodded before he moved behind me and tied the blindfold across my eyes. I hated not being able to see.
"Harry! Please don’t let me sprain my ankle with these heels on!" I warned him as we began walking. I knew that we were going to the back door when I felt the hardwood floors go to carpet.
"I promise, I won’t let anything happen." Harry told me before I felt his lips touch my temple lightly.
I heard the back door open and Harry led me outside. I smelled fresh cut green grass as we made our way across it.
I felt butterflies in my stomach as I thought about what Harry could have planned. Knowing him it could be anything.
It felt like twenty minutes had passed by when Harry stopped walking.
I felt his hands go to the back of the blindfold and I could finally see.
The first thing I saw was the lights in the trees. I faintly heard music and then my eyes rested on the candlelight dinner that was near the stream.
I looked over at Harry, “This is beautiful.”
He smiled and brought me closer to him, “I wanted to do something special for you. You deserve it.”
He grabbed my hand and brought me over to the table. Under silver lids, there was steak with potatoes and green beans.
During dinner, Harry and I chatted about the plans of our moving in. I honestly couldn’t wait to start a new chapter with him.
After everything we had been through, it was like we were going to get our happy ending after all.
"I sort of have a confession to make." Harry said once we had finished eating.
"I was at your graduation a few months ago." He told me.
I knew it!
"I knew that it was you! Why didn’t you come and talk to me?" I asked him.
He looked down at his hands, “We weren’t exactly in a good place. I just wanted to be there to support you.”
"Thank you." I told him. It didn’t surprise me that even when he and I were at odds that he still wanted to be there for me.
"Running into you at the hotel was the best thing that could’ve happened." He smiled.
"We always seem to be running into each other." I laughed.
Harry reached across the table and grabbed my left hand, “It’s our thing.”
He stood up and gestured for me to do so. The music seemed to get louder and Harry and I started slow dancing.
"You are the only girl that will have my heart." Harry whispered to me as he brushed my bangs out of my eyes.
"I’m honored." I smiled.
Harry twirled me and then dipped me. He placed his hand on my cheek and bent down to press his lips against mine.
"I love you so much." Harry whispered as he pulled me into his arms.
"I love you too. More than you will ever know."
"Let’s go for a splash." Harry grinned.
I took off my heels and we headed to the stream. The water was cold and I looked over as I watched Harry take his shoes off and his socks too.
He rolled the bottom of his dress pants up a bit and then he joined me.
I kicked some water his way.
"You shouldn’t have done that, love." Harry laughed. He came towards me and I tried to move out of his way.
He grabbed my by my waist and twirled me around.
"Harry!" I laughed.
Once he stopped, we went to sit in the grass. I laid on my back and looked up and saw the stars. They seemed extra bright tonight.
I felt Harry’s glance on me. I turned and saw him laying next to me. He was watching me.
"What are you looking at?" I asked him, teasingly.
"My future." He whispered.
I felt my heart beat a little faster at his answer.
I felt him reach down and lace his fingers with mine. His gaze was still locked on mine.
What came out of his mouth next was a complete surprise.
"Marry me, (y/n)." Harry breathed out.
THE END!! :)

Previous Chapter: http://upallnightprefs94.tumblr.com/post/77959227913/when-i-was-three
The press conference was a big deal.
We pulled into the parking garage of the building and I saw numerous cars. I felt my nerves as soon as we parked the car. Elianna, Athena, and myself got out and headed inside.
We were brought into the room where I would be waiting until the press conference started. There were a few guitars in the room. I grabbed one and started strumming randomly.
It was helping me calm down a little.
One of the people that was working on the press conference came in the room ten minutes after we arrived.
"The One Direction guys want to come and see you, Ms. (Y/L/N)." She told me.
Elianna looked over at me, “Are you okay with that?”
I nodded, “I don’t really have a choice, huh?”
The lady left and while she was gone, I played the guitar again. I had some more song lyrics in my head. I grabbed my phone and opened my notes app. I typed some of them down before I forgot them.
I looked over at Athena and noticed that she was checking her hair in a mirror nearby.
"Someone is excited to see Harry." I taunted her.
Athena and Harry had a fling while Liam and I had dated. It never got serious unfortunately. I knew that she really liked him and that he returned the favor, but then everything happened between Liam and I.
I felt bad that they stopped talking because of the breakup.
Someone knocked on the door and Athena went to answer it. That’s when I saw them.
The guys of One Direction came into the room. I laid my eyes on Liam for the first time in a year.
I felt my mouth go dry a little. I knew that my heart was racing because of my nerves.
He looked different.
He had hair on his chin, he looked like he gained muscle to his body tone.
His hair was growing back after he had buzzed it a while back. He looked right at me when he walked in.
I wondered if he noticed if I changed at all. I know that I wasn’t the same that I was before.
"(Y/n)! It’s so good to see you again!" Zayn came and told me. He broke me out of my trance. I finally looked over at the other guys. They all changed in a year.
I couldn’t believe that I missed so much.
Zayn gave me a hug and I felt myself smiling. I missed seeing the boys. I felt like we all had genuine friendships with them.
Breaking up with Liam was tough, and it felt like I broke up with all of the other guys too.
Niall came up to me next, “How have you been?”
"I’ve been good. I’m so glad to see you all." I didn’t really know what to say. Harry and Louis hugged me next.
Then Liam came up to me. I honestly didn’t expect for him to even acknowledge me, but he did.
Liam gave me a small hug. It was shorter than the ones I had gotten from the other guys. When the hug was over, he moved and went over to Zayn who was over by Elianna and Athena.
"Thank you for agreeing to go on tour with us. It really means a lot to us." Niall told me.
"I didn’t really have a choice." I laughed a little.
Harry chuckled, “I know the situation will be a little awkward, but we will make the best of it.”
"I hope so." I said.
"How is everything with Ashton?" Niall asked me.
"It’s okay. He’s a little hesitant about the tour, but it’s buisness." I answered. That was going to be my freaking slogan thoughout this whole thing.
Athena came over and she started chatting with Harry.
A few minutes later, someone came in and told us it was time for the press conference. I let Athena check my makeup a little before she and Elianna left to go get their seats.
I walked behind the guys as we went through the main hallway and into the large room that was holding the press conference.
Tons of flashes of lights started going once we entered.
There was a huge while banner that we were going to be sitting in front of.
It had all of our pictures on their along with the name of the tour.
"Everyone please take a seat so we can begin the press conference." Sam, the announcer said.
We all sat down. I sat at the end of the long table next to Zayn.
"We are going to begin with questions about the tour. Marie, from Teen Vogue is first." Sam pointed her out to us and we looked over.
"Hello, guys. How are you all today?" Marie asked us.
"We are doing great, how about yourself?" Harry questioned.
Marie smiled, “I’m excellent. My question is how did you guys decide on having (Y/n) as your opening act?”
"She’s been a friend of ours for ages and she is an incredible singer. We are looking forward to the talent that she is going to bring to this tour." Niall answered.
I smiled, “Why thank you, Horan.” That earned a few laughs from the crowd.
"Next question is from, Robbie from Rolling Stone." Sam pointed to the man standing in the audience.
"Hello. My question is for (Y/n). You were interviewed by Vanity Fair last month and you told them you just started working on your new album. Since you are going on tour soon, is your songwriting going to get delayed?"
I shook my head, “I’m still going to be finishing up my album on tour. Hopefully I can use it for some inspiration also.”
The press conference went smoothly. I was felt a little silly that I made such a big deal about it.
"Okay, we are going to take our last question from Phil from The Sun." Sam announced.
A man in the front row stood up.
He waved at us before he started his question, “My question is aimed for Liam and (Y/n).”
"We all know that you two have history. How awkward is it that you guys have to go on tour together?" Phil asked us.
Sam was about to say something but Liam interrupted him. It was the first time I was going to hear him say anything.
"We are both adults and professionals. We are on good terms despite what everyone thinks and I’m glad that she is going on tour with us." Liam said.
I was shocked and upset.
It was all a total lie.
How the hell could he just say that we were on good terms?
It was the complete opposite.
We haven’t even talked to each other.
Sam dismissed everyone after Liam answered the question and I was glad that I was able to leave. I headed back to the room that I was in before.
I was fuming on the inside, but I couldn’t let it bother me.
Elianna and Athena came in the room shortly after I did.
I could tell by their faces that they were hesitant to talk about what happened. I had to vent to someone, but I didn’t want to do that here.
We all grabbed our things and then left. I knew I should’ve said goodbye to the guys, but I didn’t want to see Liam right now.
In the car, Athena and Elianna were talking about what clothes that I should wear on stage during the tour. I knew that they would have the best ideas.
I normally would’ve contributed, but now I was in a bad mood.
"Do you want to go grab some lunch with us?" Athena asked me when we were a few minutes away from my flat.
I shook my head, “I am probably going to grab something before I go to the studio. Maybe I can meet you guys for dinner or something?” I suggested.
"Yeah, we can go get some sushi." Athena told me.
They dropped me off at my flat and I was greeted with photographers. I headed into my flat without saying a word.
I was glad to change into sweats and a plain tee shirt once I was safely inside.
I grabbed my laptop and went on Skype. I hoped that Ashton was available with the time change and all. It was around one in the morning in Australia.
I sent the Skype request and thankfully he accepted.
A few seconds later, Ashton’s face appeared on my screen.
"Hey, babe!" His smile made all of my worries go away.
"Hello." I smiled back.
"How was the press conference?"
"I’ll spare you the details. I’m sure TMZ has the whole thing recorded and uploaded to YouTube already." I chuckled.
"Did he try to talk to you?" Ashton asked me referring to Liam.
I shook my head, “He kept his distance.”
"I’m glad it’s over."
"Yeah, now I just have to go on tour with them." I mumbled.
"I do have good news." Ashton smiled.
"What is it?" I questioned.
"I’m going to be able to accompany you to the Brits next week. I’ll even get to stay for the first show at the O2."
I felt so relieved. I didn’t want to go to the Brits alone.
"I’m so excited! Thank you so much for making time to be with me."
"I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else." Ashton winked at me and I felt my cheeks heat up.
"When will you get in?"
"I should be there the day before the Brits. Do you think Athena will help me find something to wear?"
I nodded, “She would be glad to. I’ll ask her tonight. I’m supposed to go out for sushi with her and Elianna.”
"Have fun and let me know when you make it home. I’m going to get some sleep. I’ll call you later." Ashton told me.
"Good night, babe." I waved and he did too.
I closed my laptop and instantly felt better. I was glad that Ashton would be able to accompany me to the Brits and for the first show of the tour.
I got up to grab my song book and started to gather my things so I could go to the studio.
I was about to leave when I heard someone knock on my door. I went to answer it and saw the last person that I expected to see standing at my doorstep.

@lanastevens liar, liar pants on fire.
I couldn’t help but laugh at the tweet that Harry sent Lana. It was exactly what he would do.
I knew that it was going to spark conversation and that he was going to get in trouble because of it.
"Harry," I said as I moved closer to him, "You weren’t supposed to say anything."
I felt his arms wrap around my waist as he drew me to his chest, “I can’t just let her talk badly about you.”
I linked my fingers together behind his neck, “You are going to get into trouble.”
"It’s worth it. We are worth it." Harry kissed my forehead softly.
"Come on. Let’s go eat." I grabbed his hand and he laced our fingers together. We headed back inside. Anne and Gemma were sitting at the table already.
"You two couldn’t wait?" Harry joked.
"You were taking too long with your gossiping." Gemma retorted.
I sat next to her at the table while Harry sat next to Anne. I put a square of lasanga on my plate.
"Harry, this is delicious." Anne told him.
Harry smiled, his cheeks turning a little red, “Thanks, mum.”
We were all eating and enjoying the food that Harry prepared when Anne broke the silence.
"So when were you going to tell me that you and (Y/n) were moving in together, Harry."
Harry’s eyes went wide and he looked over at me, “You told her?”
I pointed my thumb toward Gemma, “She blurted it out before I could.”
Harry narrowed his eyes at his sister, “Thanks, Gem.”
"I’m happy for you guys." Anne placed her hand on Harry’s arm as she smiled.
"Thank you." Harry smiled as she kissed his cheek.
"So when do you guys plan on moving in?" Gemma asked us.
"Well, I still have to talk to my roommate and my boss." I had completely forgotten about that.
"I’m sure it’ll be soon." Harry smiled a little. I loved how he had such incredible faith in things.
Once we were all done with dinner, I helped Gemma clear the table and wash the dishes, while Anne and Harry left the room.
"You know, I’m really glad my brother has you." Gemma confessed while we put the dishes away.
"Really?" I asked her.
She nodded, “I was always worried that he would end up with someone that was using him because of his fame, but you challenge him. I can tell that you two are different, but you seem to match in a way if that makes sense.”
She made me laugh, “Thank you, Gemma.”
Gemma bumped her shoulder lightly against mine, “It’s no problem.”
We finished cleaning the kitchen and headed into the living room. Anne and Harry were hugging again.
Anne was crying.
"Mum? Is everything okay?" Gemma rushed over to her mother. I was worried that something bad happened.
She looked over at us, “I’m fine. These are happy tears!”
Anne looked at Harry, kissing his cheek before she left the room.
"What was that about?" Gemma asked Harry.
He glanced at me before looking back at his sister, “Mum is just happy about (Y/n) and me.”
Gemma placed her hand on her chest while she took a deep breath, “It scared me! I thought something happened.”
"So did I." I said while Harry grabbed my hand and brought me over to the couch.
"I’m going to go and check on her." Gemma told us before she left the room.
"Are you sure that Anne is okay?" I asked Harry.
Harry nodded, “She is fine. We were just talking and she told me that she is glad things worked out with us.”
Harry wrapped his arms around my shoulders and drew me closer to him.
"I’m happy things worked out between us too." I smiled.
"I would like to take you out tomorrow night. Since we are leaving the next day, I want us to have a little fun." Harry told me.
"You’re planning on going back to America with me?" I asked him. I was certain that he was going to stay here.
"I have to help you move, duh." Harry laughed.
"It could be a while, a Harry. I still have to put in my request at work and then I have to help Torrance find a new roommate." I explained to him.
"I don’t care. The guys and I have been wanting a break anyways. We have tour in a few months and I want to stay with you for as long as I can." I felt Harry press his lips against my forehead lightly.
We had come a long way.
"Thank you." I told him.
"For everything over the last few years. I know it’s been tough most of the time, but we managed to get through it all."
"I knew we would end up together." He smiled.
"Is that so?" I smirked.
Harry nodded, “I knew that from the moment I laid eyes on you, that you were the only one for me.”
I couldn’t even form words. I leaned up and pressed my lips against his lightly.
I was excited that we were going out on a real date tomorrrow, but little did I know that after tomorrow, everything was going to change.
