smart and fancy too

I really like how they are all dressed like their characters in this photo.
Katie has a sweet flowery dress, smart looking enough but nothing too fancy.
Dan do what you’re supposed to do as the headcharacter and puts on a suit (even though he didn’t want to).
Emma also dresses a little “fancyer” and has a nice dress proper for her age and really nice shoes. And she doesn’t put on a jacket even though it cold, because you’re not supposed to have one with this dress so I will freeze.
Rupert doesn’t seem to care that much (or know) that you might be supposed to wear a suit, or maby he just doesn’t own one.
And Evannna. Evanna doesn’t really give a fuck about the dresscode and puts on comfortable clothes and vans, and if someone asks she just shrugges and answer “I think I look pretty”

Holiday romance - part 2

*Harry’s POV*

“Niall you are a bloody genius” I cheered as I wandered down the path and back towards the boys who were still sitting on the bench underneath the shade of the palm trees, several empty beer glasses littering the wooden top.

“Why did it go well?” He asked and I nodded. Lux had run ahead of me once we left the beach, desperate to tell her mum everything she had seen today. I was too wrapped up in my barely controlled glee to really pay much attention to what she had been chattering about as we walked together.

“It did indeed, bagged myself a date the next time she has time off work” I said, not even attempting to wipe the smug smile off my face as I look a seat next to Niall, Louis and Liam opposite us. The boys cheered and each patted me on the back.

“So, does that mean we won’t have to put up with you talking about her all the time then?” Louis asked and I laughed.

“Nope, if things go well, might just talk about her even more” the boys laughed and Louis groaned before we descended in to a meaningless conversation about something, I wasn’t really paying attention, my mind was elsewhere. I hope Y/N’s next break was soon, I was far too aware that time was not on our side. I was leaving in two weeks and I wanted to spend as much time with her as possible before we had to head home. I was also aware that when the time did come to go on a date, I had no idea where to take her. I didn’t know the island like she does and chances are she would have been to all the places anyway. I’m not stupid, I know she must have been on a couple of dates since she started working here, a girl like her doesn’t stay single long in a place like this, with tall, tanned, well built guys walking around with their shirts off and wooing unsuspecting guests with their foreign accents. There was no doubt I had some stiff competition here, so I had to make a lasting impression if I didn’t want her snatched away from me.

For the rest of the early afternoon, the boys and I continued to chat and sip pints, laughing and reminiscing over times we had shared together and what we hoped would come after the break. Each of us said relatively the same thing, we wanted to continue to make music together and do more world tours, but maybe not each year like we had been doing before, there is only so much we could handle. We were so consumed in out conversations that we had barely noticed the lights coming on around us. Across the resort there were a number of small white lights, larger than fairy lights but smaller than flood lights, that bordered each path and lit up some of the trees. It was one of my favourite times of the day, being able to wander the resort, only have to light of the moon and the paths to guide you. It was magical.

“Boys!” Johanna called from the doorway to the cabin she was sharing with Louis and his family.

“If you are wanting to come to dinner with us then you better start getting ready” she called. The four of us replied with an ‘ok’ before we each rose from our seats and returned to our cabins, changing into smarter wear for dinner tonight. There were three restaurants on the resort, one was a family type establishment, with a buffet and kids area where they could make their own pizzas and eat until they were sick at the ice cream parlour. We had gone there on the first day with Lux. The second was a classy restaurant. It was one of those places where you spent £20 on a starter and were presented with a mouthful of food. Not my style, if I’m going to be paying a lot for my food I want something that fills me up. The third was more what we were all looking for. It was a humble little Italian restaurant, serving a variety of pizzas, pastas and so on. We had been there three times already I would bet good money that is where we were heading tonight. Of course, if we didn’t want to eat out, each cabin had its own kitchen, but so far, my family and I had yet to work out where the nearest supermarket was to buy any food.

After a quick shower I changed. I selected a pair of black skinny jeans with a hole in the right knee and a plain, white long sleeved shirt, leaving a few of the buttons undone at the top. I paired it with my brown leather boots and ran my fingers through my now dry hair, pushing it back off my face and tugging out some of the knots.

“Harry are you ready?” My mum asked, peaking her head though the door. I nodded and slipped my phone and my wallet in to my pockets.

“Yep, ready” I said, following her, my sister and Robin outside. Everyone was dressed well, smart clothes but nothing too fancy, we were on holiday after all. Once everyone had gathering in the small clearing in the centre of our circle of lodges we all began to wander down the series of paths toward the restaurant. My mum hooked her arm through mine and smiled up at me, I returned the gesture and we fell in to an easy conversation as we followed the others. As we rounded one corner, my mums body collided with another, she gasped and stepped back.

“Oh I’m sorry dear, I didn’t even see you there” she gasped.

“It’s alright, I wasn’t looking either. Are you alright?” She asked. My mum smiled and ensured her that she was fine. Y/N’s eyes drifted to me and then back to my mum. I smiled. Everyone in front stopped and watched the small exchange.

“Good, well I better be on my way” Y/N said with a kind smile before taking a step around my mother.

“Have you had your dinner already dear?” My mum asked and Y/N shook her head.

“No, not yet. Was just going for a walk actually” she said, gesturing down the path our little congregation had just come from. Lux was attached to Y/N’s leg in seconds once she had weaved her way from her mother and towards us. Y/N smiled and took hold of one of her small hands. Lux beamed.

“Well why don’t you join us dear?” My mum asked and Y/N hesitated.

“Oh yes, please do. It will give me a chance to thank you for taking Lux out this afternoon” Lou said as she approached us and removed Lux from her side. Lux whined in protest but said nothing.

“I don’t know, I wouldn’t want to intrude” she said, “and I’m not exactly dressed for dinner”. She was in a pair of blue jeans and a long, loose vest top which flowed down to her mid thigh. It was simple and plain but suited her so well, she would look perfect in a paper bag in my eyes. Her hair was falling loosely around her shoulder and was curlier than it had been earlier, like she hadn’t had time to dry it when she got out of the shower. She had a light layer of make-up dusted over her face and her eyes glistened under the lights surrounding us. Did I ever mention she was beautiful?

“Don’t be silly darling, you look lovely and we would be more than happy to have you” Lou said with a kind smile. Y/N caught my eye and I smiled at her. Her body seemed to relax and I tried to hide the bright smile on my face. I did that, I made her relax. Well done me, pat on the back.

“Eh, yeah, ok then, that would be nice. Thank you” she said softly and wound her hand together. Everyone smiled and Lux cheered causing a laugh to erupt from Y/N’s soft, pink lips. My mum walked ahead of me with Lou and Lux, leaving me and Y/N at the back of the group. I smiled at her and she grinned.

“Would you look at that, my mum has more balls to ask you to dinner than I have” I chuckled and Y/N laughed wholeheartedly. We began to walk and struck up a little conversation about this afternoon and our upcoming trip around the the island.

“You’ll love it, I promise. I remember when I was first shown around, practically had to be dragged from every shop to the next one” she giggled and I smiled. She was so easy to please. The simplest act of kindness could spark the most genuine smile on her face and could make you feel like you have given her the world. I bent down and picked a small pink flower from beside the path and placed it behind her ear before fixing her hair around it, so that only the flower was sticking out beside her face. She smiled and looked down at her feet.

“To wish you luck with my family” I said and she giggled before looking at me with a small smile and bright eyes. My night just got so much better.

* * *

“Thank you for inviting me” Y/N said as we wandered back to our cabins. Dinner had been eventful. Louis spilled his drink all over the floor and one of the waiter slipped on it, causing an empty plate to fall on the ground and smash. His face turned bright red and none of us knew whether to laugh or help the waiter clean up the mess. Y/N being the person she is bent down to help (giving me a perfect view of her arse but being the gentleman I am I didn’t look (much)) but was told by the waiter not to worry about it and the mess was soon cleared. After a moment of silence we all burst in to a fit of laughter. Y/N sat in the middle of Lux and I. She spent most of the early evening helping Lux colour in her menu before she was able to join in the conversation. My mum engaged her for most of the evening, asking her about her work, her education and her family. Turns out she isn’t just a pretty face. Her family comes from good money, not rich but not struggling for cash either. She studied business management at university and graduated with a good score and she is working here for 12 months as work experience with a hope of managing and owning an establishment like this one in the future. Everyone seemed very impressed by her, myself included, but I didn’t fail to notice the slight unease she felt when everyone’s attention was on her. But she breezed through the evening, quickly integrating in to our group and becoming one of us.

“You are more than welcome dear, and thank you again for today. Lux really enjoyed herself” Lou smiled kindly and gave Y/N a quick hug before she carried a sleeping Lux back towards our cabins.

“Mum, I’m going to walk Y/N home if that’s ok, I won’t be long” I said as everyone but my mum and Robin disappeared into the darkness of the Palm trees.

“Alright dear. I’ll leave the door unlocked for you” she smiled before kissing Y/N on the cheek and walking into the distance with Robin.

“I had fun tonight” I said as we began to walk down a separate path towards the staff cabins.

“Me too, your family and friends are really nice” she said, her fingers fiddling with the flower which was still behind her ear before they fell at her side. I was unusual, this situation. Neither of us quite sure what to say or how to act. Was this a date? I didn’t think so, usually a date is between two people getting to know each other, not between two people and the rest of the family, that is more like a gathering. But this part, the after dinner, walking her back to her place part, felt like a date. And I’m not sure how to handle it. I could do all the usual things I do after a date, take her hand, kiss her on the doorstep and promise to take her out again but it seemed wrong here, because I hadn’t actually taken her out yet. So I settled on something simple, I took her hand gently in mine, praying silently that she wouldn’t pull away, and when she didn’t, I did another internal jump for joy. Her hand was small and slender, her palm was soft and rested securely with mine as her fingers laced through my own.

“I promise the next date won’t include my family” I said and she giggled.

“Speaking of our 'next date’ I finish work tomorrow at 4 if you wanted to do anything tomorrow night?” She said quietly.

“Hmm two nights in a row, don’t know if I can suffer you for that long” I teased and she bumped me with her shoulder gently. I smiled.

“Yeah, that sounds good. I’ll come pick you up at 6?” I said and she nodded.

Her cabin was smaller than ours, nestled in a small group of four. They were less elegant and the finish on the outside wasn’t as neat and tidy but it looked decent enough for one person. She lead me to the cabin at the back of the cluster, nearest the line of Palm trees. Through the branches the ocean could be heard lapping against the shore gently. It was quiet and peaceful. She let go of my hand and opened the door, I couldn’t help but feel a slight emptiness at the loss of contact.

“So, I’ll see you tomorrow then? She said, lingering in the doorway to her cabin. I smiled and nodded.

"See you tomorrow” I said.

She leaned forward and pressed a light kiss to my lips before pulling away and walking inside, closing the door softly behind her. My lips tingled and as I turned away I ran my fingers over them lightly. There was a lingering taste but I couldn’t work out what it was. As I walked back to my cabin, engulfed by the silence around me, I knew one thing for sure. Tomorrow had to be the best date I could manage if I wanted this to go somewhere. And boy, did I want it to go somewhere.

* * *

By 5.30 I was a nervous wreck. I had showered, dried my hair, changed my clothes six times and made sure everything was ready twice. This wasn’t like me, I was usually so composed before a date, a clear plan and an idea how the night would play out in my head. But this time there was only one coherent thought bouncing around in my brain and I brought me no comfort. 'Don’t screw it up’.

In all honesty, tonight had been my mums idea, I came to her this morning with my dilemma and she came up with the plan and the things I needed (having found the local store earlier that morning on a walk with Robin). I sighed. It was now 5.45 and I would need to leave to pick Y/N up any minute. I settled for something simple, black jeans, a black t-shirt and a red and black flannel over the top paired with a worn set of converse. After all, we would be doing a bit of walking, I didn’t want to be uncomfortable. I stuffed my phone in my pocket, leaving my wallet on the side and walked into the living room. My mum, Gemma and Robin were sitting on the sofa watching a movie, empty pizza boxes sitting on the table. Everyone had decided to do their own thing for dinner tonight, my family decided to order pizza from the restaurant in the resort. I had none.

“You ready?” Gemma asked, looking up from the tv and drawing everyone’s attention towards me. I nodded.

“I think so” I said and she smiled.

“You look good Haz, and she likes you, no need to be worried” she said and I sighed.

“We don’t know if she likes me yet” I said, walking into the kitchen and taking the basket from the counter and one of the spare sets of keys from the worktop.

“She does, don’t worry” Gemma said with a knowing smile before turning her attention back towards the film. They each wished me luck before I walked into the warm night air. The sun was still lingering in the sky above me, not due to set for another hour or so, perfect for me. I took in a deep breath before making my way towards Y/N’s cluster of cabins. I arrived exactly at 6 and knocked softly on the door. It took a couple of minutes before she greeted me.

“Hi” she smiled. I was lost for words. It was now that I realised beautiful was no word to describe this girl. There was no word to describe this girl. Of course there were the usual, perfect, flawless, breathtaking but there was no word that combined those all in to one. Y/N was the combination of all those things and so much more. She had her hair loosely curled and pulled over one shoulder, the other side pinned down so that it wouldn’t fall out. She was wearing a short black skirt which hugged her body perfectly and ended mid-thigh. She had on a loose white top which fell just short of the top of the black skirt and highlighted the swell of her breast perfectly, not too much but not too little. She had a light layer of make-up on her face, a soft pink blush dusting her cheeks, a perfect line of eyeliner and mascara shaping her glittering eyes. Her feet were bare.

“I wasn’t sure what we were doing, whether I should wear heels or flats” she said. Is smiled at her, she didn’t notice my obvious gazes at her.

“I would suggest flats” I said with a kind smile. She nodded and slipped on a plain pair of black flats before grabbing her small clutch bag and stepping out on to the porch, locking the door behind her. She looked at me.

“You look beautiful” I said. She smiled and looked down at her shoes shyly.

“Thanks, you look good too” she said. I thanked her and laced our fingers together.

“Ready to go?” I asked her and she nodded.

Our conversation was easy as we walked hand in hand towards the shore and across the sand. After a few moments Y/N stopped to take off her shoes before we continued. The air was warm and the sun was slowly sinking down towards the horizon. We walked further along the beach than I had ever been but I wasn’t worried, it just meant we were further away from everyone and wouldn’t be interrupted.

“Here,” I said, stopping, “this spot is good”. It was a small strip of soft, flat sand which was nestled near the tree line at the top of the beach but still had a perfect view of the water in front of us. Y/N stood beside me patiently and waited as I set the basket down and pulled out the large blanket, spreading it out across the sand. I took Y/N’s hand once again and led her to the blanket before signalling her to take a seat. She did. I sat next to her and placed the basket between us before placing its content on the rug. There were several plates of food, sandwiches, chicken wraps, crisps, salads and of course, chocolate covered strawberries. Finally I took out two glasses and a bottle of wine. I handed her a glass which she took gratefully and filled the glass with the red liquid. She thanked me and took a sip.

“Tuck in” I said and we did just that. We ate and talked and then ate some more. By the time the sun had set we had eaten nearly all of the food I had set out in front of us.

“Thank you Harry it was delicious” she said and I smiled.

“You’re welcome, I would have done better if I knew any places to eat that weren’t in the resort” I said and she smiled.

“Well maybe on our next date I can take you somewhere new” she said, looking me in the eye with a s small smile on her face. I looked her in the eye.

“So there is going to be another date?” I asked, the corner of one of my lips pulling up.

“I hope so” she smiled. I didn’t reply, I simply leant across the food between us and pressed my lips gently against her. We were both still for a few moments before our lips began to work against each other’s. Her lips tasted of wine and something else. It was delicious whatever it was, something that was just, her. I ran my tongue across her bottom lip and she opened her mouth, allowing my tongue to slip inside. We kissed for what felt like forever, our lips moulding perfectly with one another’s until we had to pull away for air. Even after pulling away, we were still close enough to each other to fell the breath on our faces. I pecked her lips a couple more times before pulling away.

“I think there might be a second date too” I said.

It’s a little late, but here is my 2015 witchsona! She is just a chilled out witch who uses magic to make her life and the lives of those around her a little easier. Nothing too fancy! Her familiar is Penny, a smart and brave maine coon. Her familiar’s apprentice is Millie, a cat as beautiful as she is brainless.
