It was a view you had only ever seen on television or in photographs. It was surreal. You and Harry were at the top of the highest mountain, overlooking valleys, trees, and a long, clear blue river that wrapped around. The sun was setting and the sky was all sorts of beautiful. Orange, pink, lavender colors decorated the sky. The photos you took on your phone didn’t do the view justice. All you could do was remember its beauty.
You loved it on the mountain with Harry. You were secluded and alone. There was no noise but the sounds of your breaths. It was the most peaceful, relaxed, and intimate the two of you had been in a long while.
It was definitely needed. You and Harry needed to pull away from the chaos that surrounded your lives and take a moment for yourselves. You needed to spend time with one another without any distractions or interruptions.
Life had been in full speed the past several months. You had gotten accepted into Law school. Your courses were extensive and required a lot of time to be dedicated towards working on assignments and reviewing for tests. It was a type of pressure different from undergraduate school. On top of that, you were also working as an assistant at a law firm. Harry, on the other hand, was booked every single day, going here going there, promoting his album and playing shows. He would leave for days, even weeks, at a time. You lived under the same roof but it was as if you never saw each other. On the days Harry would be home, you were either working, at school, or too busy burying your nose in textbooks studying. Other days you would stay up and wait for Harry to come home but he was already exhausted from a long, tiresome day all he could muster up was energy for a kiss then head straight to bed.
Something had to be done. You and Harry needed to put life on pause before things fell apart. Things had gotten so chaotic you began to neglect one another. So you and Harry cleared your schedule for the next three weeks, booked a flight, and been disengaged from the rest of the world since. It was the best thing the two of you had ever done.
Your three weeks were rejuvenating. It relit the spark that had been overshadowed by busy lives. It reminded you and Harry why you fell in love with each other. The three weeks brought back the feelings you had on your first date, the first time you spent the night together, the time the two of you moved in with one another… It was like falling in love all over again.
“I don’t want
to go home,” you said. Your eyes were focused on the view in front of you
as your head rested on Harry’s shoulder.
“Neither do I, luv,” he whispered.
You and Harry had three more days left on holiday. Three more days to appreciate the peace, the quiet, the privacy. There were no cameras or photographers. There were no screaming fans or demanding bosses. There were no business meetings or classes or assignments. Just you and Harry.
“I’m glad we did this,” you looked up at Harry, his green eyes locking with yours. He smiled, his dimples pronounced. He leaned forward and pressed his rosy lips onto yours. He laid it there for a moment, leaving no empty space between you. He pulled away slowly and whispered, “I love you, Y/N. More than you will ever know.”
“What happens when we get home? Is it going to be the same way again? Me at school and you gone?” you had a hint of sadness in the tone of your voice Harry picked up on.
“No,” he assured you. “We’ll do it better this time, luv. We’ll fix it.”
“How can you be so sure?”
He pressed his lips onto your forehead and you closed your eyes at the touch of his soft lips. Every time Harry touched you, it sent a wave of electricity and excitement through you, but also a sense of calmness and security. “Because I never wan’ t’ lose you, luv,” he answered.
“You won’t.” You nuzzled the top of your head into the crook of his neck and hugged his arm. “You won’t.”
“I know,” he responded. “There’s something I want’d to do before we went home…”
“What is it, babe?”
Harry pulled away from you and wiped the dirt off from his bottom. He reached a hand out toward you to pull you up. “Would you look at that bird,” he pointed behind you. “It’s beau’iful.”
You spun around and your eyes searched the sky for what you thought could be an eagle. But the sky was empty. Your eyes shifted to the tall green trees but there was no sign of life. You spun around defeated, “Harry, I don’t see—”
