Cute & cuddly Harry :)
You had just finished your post-workout shower when you made your way into your shared bedroom to go to bed. It was already late and you had an early morning, so you were surprised to see Harry still sitting up in your bed with his jeans on.
“M'sorry, baby. Jet lag is killing me, I don’t think I’ll get much sleep tonight.” He sighed.
You shrugged nonchalantly, choosing not to think about spending another night with Harry tossing and turning.
“You’re not tired at all?” You asked, slipping the rings off your fingers and unclasping your necklace.
“I fell asleep while you were shopping earlier. I’ve been tryin’ to get my sleep schedule back on track, but I jus’ can’t seem to make it work.”
You nodded understandingly and slid your glasses on. He’d been halfway around the world- twice- within the past week and you felt like you owed it to him to keep him company during his sleepless nights.
“I’ll try to stay up a little longer, maybe you’ll get tired by then.”
He opened his mouth to protest, but you shook your head at him as you grabbed your book off the shelf. As soon as you sat down, he pulled you close to him and tucked you into his side.
You’d only read a few pages when you began to feel his eyes practically staring holes in his shirt you were wearing. After a few more minutes of attempting to concentrate, you closed your book and set it on the nightstand.
“Need something?” You grinned playfully up at him and he laughed in return.
“No, just thought you looked cute, s'all.” He shrugged, and kissed the top of your head.
You could feel your eyes starting to get heavy, but you didn’t want to drift off to sleep and leave Harry’s presence just yet.
“You don’t have to leave again for a while, do you?” You asked, wide eyed as the possibility of him flying across the world again crossed your mind. You were relieved when he shook his head.
“I’ve gotta be in London next week for somethin’, but I was hoping you could travel with me for a bit.” He smiled, pushing a few stray hairs out of your face as they fell from your ponytail.
You smiled at the thought. There was nothing better than traveling with Harry, because he was always sure to show you around places he’d been before and explore all the places he hadn’t. You were relieved when you concluded that your schedule was clear enough to go with him.
“Of course I’ll go, H. Not sure I can keep up with the jet lag though, hm?” You giggled, snuggling closer and letting the warmth of his body soothe you into shutting your eyes for a few more seconds.
“S'alright. I won’t mind you falling asleep on me… kinda like you are right now.” He joked.
“Hey, m'not asleep!”
He laughed and rubbed your arm gently, settling himself against the pillows so you could be more comfortable.
“Go t'sleep, angel.” He prodded you gently, even though your eyes were still fighting to stay open.
“No… I’ll stay up with you, I promise..” You drawled.
“Don’t have to do that, love. I’ll still be right here when you wake up.” He said, but he hoped that by the time you woke up he’ll have gotten a little sleep.
It’s almost like you were waiting for his affirmation that he’d be okay waiting up alone, because you were out like a light as soon as he pulled the blanket over you.
Before he turned on the TV and muted it, he wrapped his arms around you and kissed your cheek, muttering one last “I love you” before he let you sleep peacefully.
