Boss!Harry AU - Part 4
Here’s part 4 of the Boss AU. I hope you like it. After a good first few hours of writing this, my writer’s block seemed to come back even though I knew where I wanted to take it so I’m sorry if it jumps a little bit from place to place. We might still be in New York for part 5, we might not, we’ll see. (ALSO, the last scene, it’s fucking shit) x
“Sir, here’s your keys,” the hotel receptionist hands over two room cards to Harry as stands checking you both in. “You’re in rooms 442 and 443. Enjoy your stay.” Harry flashes a flirtatious grin at the receptionist, making you roll your eyes, and he swaggers over to you where you sit on one of the comfortable sofas in the lobby as a bell hop puts the bags on to the trolley and goes on ahead of you.
“All done. Let’s go,” he signals his head towards the lift, holding the two room cards in his hand, tightly.
“Do I get my key?” You say. “Or are you going to hold on to it like you’re my dad? Hey…daaaaaad,” you tease, grabbing hold of his hand.
“Hey….don’t go callin’ me yeh dad. Way to make m’ feel weird.”
The atmosphere between you has lessened since your argument over everything in his office. In the few weeks since, you hadn’t seen each other outside of work at all and it had been strictly professional between you both. Glances had been exchanged and yoga classes had been thoroughly enjoyed together, as good friends but nothing more; neither of you wanted to make it more complicated than it already is, especially with you still threatening to leave. You hadn’t seen his son at all, even though Harry mentioned that Sam keeps going on about you and asking when he’ll be able to see you again and how Harry’s running out of reasonable excuses that won’t hurt his son’s feelings like ‘she’s on holiday’ and ‘she’s working late for daddy’. It feels good, though, having no pressures on the relationship between you, and now that everything is out in the open, he doesn’t have to hide anything to do with his family to you, and he’s mellowed a little around the office…not too much, though, he’s very much still an arse to his staff, even more so to you because ‘the others might get suspicious’ if he’s seen to be treating you like his favourite.
