I love this picture so much I cannot describe it with proper words! Look how f*cking handsome he looks! Hope you enjoy this imagine and leave some feedback behind! I’d really appreciate it! Picture is not mine!!!
(Y/N)’s mind was buried deep into her studies as someone knocked on her front door and tore her out of her learning session. Checking up the time of her watch she wore on her wrist she noticed that it was 5 PM in the evening and she had spent fully five hours of studying without taking any break. Only now a slight hint of headache occurred and (Y/N) decided it was a good idea to lay her notices aside and try to relax. She stood up from her chair to respond the knocks on her door.
“I’m coming!” She called and when she opened the door, she was greeted by a very handsome, dimpled young man with the most beautiful eyes she had ever seen in her entire life. Her heart started to flutter. A smile appeared instantly on her lips as she stood face to face with her best friend.
“ ‘ello love!” Harry said, carrying a little bouquet of flowers in his one hand while his other hand held a little white plastic bag. Giving her a kiss on her cheek, he entered the apartment, took his coat off and stepped directly into the kitchen.
“ Hi Harry…” (Y/N) closed the door and followed him straight to the kitchen where he was taking a small box out of the plastic back and unpacking it.
“Bought you your favorite doughnuts, love.” He informed her, handing her over one sweet treat with a pink frosting.
“That’s very lovely, thank you.” The young woman replied and after she took a smile bite from her doughnut and chewed it properly, enjoying the taste on her tongue, she also thanked him for the beautiful flowers that he got for her.
“You really didn’t have to buy me flowers, Harry. I would have been fine with only doughnuts.”
“Nah, I love to make you happy. Besides I thought they could bring some life into your apartment because everything else in here looks boring.” His dimples popped up as he grinned widely at her. (Y/N) rolled her eyes, hitting him slightly on his arm.
“Idiot.” She chuckled. “So, what brings you here? I thought I wouldn’t get to see you till next Friday?” She once again bit into her doughnut.
“I had some business to do in the city and was very close nearby so I assumed it was a great idea to check up on you and bless you with my presence.”
“Very thoughtful. I’m honored.” She said, then walking to her fridge to take out two cans of coke.”But you have been careful when you came here, haven’t you?”
“Yes, no worries! There were no cameras or fans around luckily.” Keeping her private life was a high priority in (Y/N)’s life, so when Harry decided to visit her, he had to make sure that no one was chasing after him to not reveal the location of her apartment.
“What have you been up to? Studying again?” He asked.
“Mhm, I have some upcoming exams that I need to get ready for unfortunately. They rob me of my last nerve. It’s unbearable. Urgh.”
“I’m glad that I do not have to study.” Harry said, opening the lid of his coke and taking a gulp out of it.
“You’re lucky you have talent, Harry. If I had a voice as good as yours, I would have probably not put myself under so much pressure.”
“You think being a singer is easy?”
“It’s definitely easier than studying.”
“If you knew.” He sighed.
They both exited the kitchen and made themselves comfortable on the couch in the living room, positioning their drinks on the small table in the middle of the room.
“Do you have any plans on Saturday?” Harry inquired.
“I don’t think so. Why you’re asking?”
“I was wondering if you’d like to accompany me to a wedding and be my date for the night.”
(Y/N)’s heart accelerated by the offer that he made her and she felt a blush creeping its way on her both cheeks. Hopefully, Harry would not notice it because that would be very embarrassing. You know, being friends with him was an amazing opportunity and she appreciated that he chose her for being his best friend, however it was not possible to not be attracted to him.
They knew each other for almost one year now. After a small accident in Starbucks in which (Y/N) was too distracted to pay attention to what was going on in front of her and unintentionally bumped into Harry and poured her coffee over her shirt, Harry offered to buy her another one as a compensation because he was not paying attention either. Both of them started to get into a deep conversation where they told each other every single detail about themselves and after that day and exchanging phone numbers, they began to meet each other regularly in their free time.
(Y/N) was aware that their relation was based in a friendly manner but it did not held her back from developing feelings for him. She battled a lot against her emotions for a long but no matter how hard she tried she would lose the fight at the end of the day. Besides, she doubted he could ever like her the way she liked him. There was no way she would tell him about this. Losing him is the last thing she wanted to do.
“Whose wedding?” She asked him.
“Someone from the family.”
“I don’t know, Harry.” She replied, fiddling with her fingers. “I mean I’m not even a family member and I don’t want to disturb the wedding with my presence. Besides, I know no one there and no one knows me.”
“You’re talking nonsense, love! You’ve become a part of the family already if you want it or not. And also, I’m taking you there as a companion. And do not worry, Mum will be there and Gemma and even Lou and Nick. You won’t be alone! And if there’s someone who makes a dumb comment about you, I’ll know how to deal with that person.”
“I really don’t know. It’s been years since I have been to a wedding and I don’t even have a proper dress for the event.”
Harry smiled at her, telling her not to worry. “Leave it to me, love. I know a good store that sells good dresses and I’m sure you’ll like them too. Just say yes please. I really don’t want to go there on my own while everybody brings their dates, wives, husbands or whatever.”
After a few moments of thinking and compensating, (Y/N) finally agreed.
“Alright…I’m coming with you.”
“Good! I’ll tell Lou to pick you up and we’ll see each other at the store on Saturday, agreed?” He held his up, indicating her to give him a high five.
The rest of the evening, they both spent time by watching Netflix and eating lots of Popcorn.
(Y/N) and Lou were standing in front of the store that Harry had mentioned the last time she saw him but looking at the dresses that were displayed made (Y/N)’s inside churn. The dresses were probably more expensive than her rent so how in god’s name should she afford any of these dresses?
“Are you excited?” Lou asked her.
“Uhm… I’m not quite sure to be honest.”
Lou caressed her arm softly in a friendly manner. “Don’t worry. Harry has arranged everything?”
(Y/N) looked at her questioningly. “What do you mean he has arranged everything? He’s not going to pay for a dress isn’t he?”
Before Lou could respond, Harry was approaching towards them, being in a very happy mood. “Hey, loves.” He gave them a tight hug. Then he turned to (Y/N). “Are you ready to pick up a dress?”
“You’re not going to pay for it, are you?” She asked him, kind of hoping he would say no even though she had no idea how to afford one dress.
“Of course I am, love. Come on, let’s go in.” He wanted to grab her by her hand however (Y/N) refused to let him touch her.
“No way, Styles!” She ordered. “There is no way that you’re going to buy me a dress. I’m not allowing it!”
“Love, please! Don’t be like that! Let’s go in!”
“Are you fucking insane? Have you any idea how much they cost? I cannot let you waste so much money for me!”
“First: That’s my money and I can do whatever I want to do with it. Second: I want to spend money for you, so stop bugging and let’s get in.”
(Y/N) stood there, speechless and out of words but she let him lead her into the store. When they entered the store, all three of them were overwhelmed by so many different dresses and even suits.
“Holy shit.” (Y/N) mumbled.
One worker, who was a nice middle-aged lady, walked towards them and welcomed them to the store.
“Good afternoon! I’m Shannon. How can I help you?”
“We need a dress for my lovely friend here.” Harry explained and pointed at (Y/N) who still felt uneasy. The dresses were indescribably beautiful but hella expensive.
“I see.” Shannon smiled. “Do you know what kind of dress you’re looking for?” She addressed to the young woman.
(Y/N) just shrugged her shoulders. “I-I don’t know actually.”
Shannon asked her to follow her and gave her a little tour to each section to present her different kind of dresses. While she was looking around, Harry took out his purse and handed his credit card over to Lou.
“Listen, I have to go and get ready myself. Just buy her the first dress that she falls in love with and don’t care about the price. Just buy it. She shall have the best night of her life and one that she’ll never forget, okay? Use it for everything you need. I’ll wait for you at the wedding.”
Lou took the credit card out of his fingers.
“You really do love her, don’t you?” She smirked at him very knowingly. She had often witnessed how much Harry cared for (Y/N) and this was in a more than a friendly manner. He acted more like a boyfriend than a friend with the exception that they weren’t in a relationship. Lou was the first one who actually noticed his feelings for her however it was a shame they had not confessed their love for each other because Lou could see that (Y/N) loved him as well.
“Just take care of her.” Harry said, leaving her question unanswered. Lou assured him that she had everything under control. They said their goodbyes and Harry left the store.
Shortly after his disappearance, (Y/N) came back with Shannon, however her hands were empty.
“Where is Harry?” She inquired, looking for him.
“He went to get ready himself. We’ll meet him at the wedding. Where is you dress?”
A desperate sigh left (Y/N)’s mouth. “ I really don’t want to buy any of them, Lou. Look at them, they are probably more worth than my existence.”
Lou laughed at her remark. “Stop talking nonsense. Come on I’ll help you.”
The next half an hour, they were searching for the perfect dress. However, when (Y/N) thought she found one, the price tag was the only thing that led her to put the dress back. Even the cheapest one was still expensive and (Y/N) began to feel uncomfortable.
“Found you!” Lou suddenly called and came towards (Y/N) with a black mermaid dress. “You have to try this on.”
“Are you insane?” (Y/N) exclaimed. “Look at the price tag! Holy shit! I’m not going to wear that!”
“Yes you are. And now, go get changed before I kick your ass.”
Reluctantly, she headed to the changing room. As she observed the black dress, (Y/N) instantly fell in love with it. The dress fell smooth on her fingertips and had long, lacy sleeves. Also the chest area was covered with lace and had beautiful patterns. Its skirt was very long and she felt that this was her dress. After she squeezed herself into it, of course with Shannon’s help, she observed herself in the large mirror in front of her. The dress fitted perfectly to her body and outlined her curves. She felt pretty and wonderful in this dress, almost like a princess.
She slowly went out of the changing room to present it to Lou and the blonde woman was out of words. “Wow, you- you look stunning, (Y/N). We’re definitely going to buy this!” Shannon also offered black high heels to the dress and after everything was bought even (Y/N) was against it, they drove back to Lou’s to get ready.
“I can’t wait to see Harry’s reaction.” Lou rambled as she did (Y/N)’s make up curled her hair. “God he’ll jump out of his socks when he sees you!”
“Don’t you think I’m too overdressed? I mean I don’t know the bride or groom.”
“Who cares?! You’re Harry’s date for tonight and nothing else matters. Let’s have some fun tonight, okay?”
The young woman sighed and mumbled an “okay”. After Lou was also dressed and ready, they went into Lou’s car and once Lou started the engine, they drove off. Harry and (Y/N) had decided to arrive separately to the event so the risk of getting papped was not too high. She didn’t want the media to make any speculations about Harry and her when there was no sort of romance going on between them. Again, she just wanted to keep her life out of public.
They arrived shortly after Harry had led his family and Nick Grimshaw to their seats and now he was waiting for the two ladies. Of course, he was excited to see (Y/N). He knew she was going to look absolutely stunning. She always did. His heart did some flips as he spotted Lou’s car in front of the event hall. His eyes caught sight of (Y/N) who was stepping out of the vehicle and Harry felt like his knees were giving up and him, refusing to steady him. To tell she was beautiful was an understatement. She was beyond beautiful. She looked like a goddess in black.
“Wow…” He muttered under his breath. He watched her speaking to Lou, before she met Harry’s gaze and smiled at him. She was a bit shaky on her legs because she rarely walked on high heels however she managed it very well. She made her way to his side.
“Hi…” She said sheepishly. She felt his intense glare on her which made her quite uneasy.
“Hello, love.” Harry said, still overwhelmed by her beauty. He took her hand gently and pressed a tender kiss on the back of her hand. “You utterly breath-taking, love.” He spun her around.
“Thank you. You look handsome yourself.” She replied with slight rosy cheeks. They stood there for a little while, smiling at each other and taking in each other’s appearance.
“Shall we go in?” Harry asked, offering his arm for her to hold on.
“Of course, let’s go.”
They walked in where the wedding had already started. People including the married couple were dancing on the dance floor like there was no tomorrow. Harry had already spotted his mother and sister and led her towards the table they were sitting at. Lou joined shortly after.
“(Y/N)!” Anne exclaimed, taking her into her arms. “Nice to see you here! You look stunning, my dear!”
“Thank you! You look beautiful yourself, Anne!” She greeted everyone at the table whose came out to be Harry’s relatives and of course Nick and took a seat right next to Harry.
(Y/N) was observing the actions that were going on as someone at the table asked a certain question.
“Harry, how long are you two together?” The question made (Y/N)’s heart beat faster and even Harry was baffled for a second. But he kept his composure and answered to his relative.
“I’m sorry, there’s a misunderstanding. We’re not dating, we’re just friends.”
“Unfortunately.” (Y/N) added in her mind. There was no doubt how much she wished they both were together. She really wanted to call him hers or being referred as his girlfriend.
“I see.” His relative spoke. “I’m sorry if I caused any inconvenience.”
After many songs, the DJ changed to a slow one, actually Sweet Creature was playing now and Harry stood up, gaining everyone’s attention. He bent down to (Y/N) and said smilingly “May I have this dance, madam?”
(Y/N) looked at everyone at the table, many at them nodding their heads and even Anne indicated her to do so. So she laid her hand on top of his and smiled back. “You may.”
Hand in hand they stepped towards the dance floor, looking like a perfect couple. Once they arrived, Harry gently pushed her forward to his chest, one hand grabbing hers firmly while her other hand was placed on his shoulder. Laying his free hand on her waist, he started to move their bodies to the song. They bodies were dancing in the same pace, slow and elegant, like they were made for each other. (Y/N) felt safe in his arms, only he could radiate a feeling of safety, security and even home. She knew that Harry was home for her, her home and the only place she wanted to stay was beside him. Forever and ever.
But more than friendship was not possible, she knew.
While dancing, Harry placed his head gently on top of hers and hummed along with the song. Even through the volume of the speakers, (Y/N) could still hear his heart beat. The most beautiful sound she had ever heard.
“Again, you look very stunning, (Y/N).” Harry complimented. “I still cannot believe it’s actually you.”
“I can’t either.”
They stared intently into each other’s eyes and even a blind man could tell they were in love with each other. No words were needed to explain their feelings, the looks they shared for each other said everything. Harry was about to bend down to her and (Y/N)’s accelerated immediately, as the song was ended and everybody around them began to clap with their hands. Harry sighed.
“Come with me.” He whispered.” I have to tell you something.” And he pulled her out of the dancing floor to a more private area with hasty steps. (Y/N) could see a hint of distress on his face and began to worry for him.
“Harry, are you okay?” She asked, her voice slightly shaking.
“No I’m not.” He growled, making her flinch. “How can I be when the one I love is close but too far away from me?”
“What are you talking about, Harry?”
He ran his hands through his hair, trying to swallow the lump in his throat.
“I can’t do that anymore. I’m sorry but I can’t do that. It kills me, (Y/N), you understand? It kills me!”
“What kills you, Harry?”
“Being friends with you! This is not right and I don’t want this anymore.”
“Oh…” She breathed out, tears were threatening to escape her eyes. Her heart felt like it was stabbed million times, bleeding uncontrollably. “I didn’t know you think that way. I’m sorry if I wasted your time all these months. You just had to say something and I would have been out of your life in no second… I-“
“What the hell are you talking about?” Harry exclaimed. “I don’t want you out of my life. I’ll never want you out of my life, love. Damn, I wouldn’t know how to live without you, okay? The reason why I don’t want to be friends is because I feel more for you than a friend, (Y/N). I can’t treat you like a friend anymore because all I can think about it is how much I want to kiss you and hold you in my arms. I want to wake up beside you and fall down asleep next you. I want to show you not only emotional love but also physical love and please don’t tell me that friends are tended to think like that.”
It was a lot to process for (Y/N) at the moment. Her mind was going crazy and her thoughts were spinning around. Had he just indicated that he loved her? It sounded so surreal to her. After all this time her wish was granted but all she could do think about was how unrealistic it sounded for her.
Two warm hands took her face between them and when she looked up she saw directly into Harry’s eyes. “I love you, (Y/N) (Y/L/N). I’m incredibly and undeniably in love with you. You make me happy in many ways possible and I cannot see myself beside anyone but you. If you give me a chance, I would want to try this out. Please say yes!”
His question was answered as she pressed her soft lips onto his and brought them to their first real kiss. The noises on the background faded out, the wedding was forgotten and all that mattered was this moment, the kiss between them. (Y/N) slung her arms around his neck and pushed him harder to her chest, as he deepened their kiss. His lips tasted like cherry Chap Stick and she couldn’t get enough of it. She could remain forever like this. When they pulled away for air, she nodded her head vigorously. Her chest almost exploded out of love and excitement.
“I want to try.” She said. “I love you Harry and I want to try.”
He gave her his most beautiful and dimpled smile, his were eyes shining out of happiness like two diamonds. He kissed her over and over again that night and he couldn’t get enough of it. Neither could (Y/N). She was finally with the man she always wanted to be with. Harry wanted her to have the best night of her life and indeed this was the best night of her entire life.
An unforgettable night.
