Based on his fidgeting, I worry that Harry is upset about something, but when his eyes land on mine, they are sparkling with anticipation. I give him a little wave as I make my way toward him.
He stands up and throws his cigarette on the ground, putting it out with his shoe.
A second later, I’m flying into his arms, wrapping myself around him.
“Someone’s happy to see me,” he says, giving me a squeeze.
“Someone is,” I agree.
Harry grins down at me and then taps me on the nose. His eyes are bright, and I take a minute to search his face.
“Is everything all right?”
He shrugs, not really answering me.
“Have you seen Mohammad yet?” I ask, changing the subject.
Because the last thing I want to do is put him in a bad mood.
“Nah. Where’s Noah?”
“He’s grabbing breakfast,” I answer.
“We have a few minutes to ourselves then.”
Harry grabs my chin, tilting my head up before pressing his lips against mine. He tastes like cigarettes and coffee, but I don’t mind.
Every time Harry kisses me, I get a different flavor.
A different feeling.
It reminds me of our first kiss—when he tasted like cold beer. You would think that would be kind of disgusting, but it wasn’t. Memories flood my mind. Harry tasting like chocolate and bananas last night. When we hung out at his house, he tasted like whiskey and a cigarette.
But there’s always Harry beneath it.
I kiss him back and lace my fingers through his. I open my eyes again and pull Harry back down onto the bench. I look around, taking in the empty courtyard.
The stone and brick occupying the emptiness.
The single tree standing in its midst.
“We should have a spot,” I comment, glancing over at him.
Because sitting here with him, it’s sort of romantic.
“I think my bed should be our spot.”
“It has to be someplace sentimental. Special.”
“My bed is definitely special,” he says with a grin, but I can tell he’s thinking at the same time. “What about the pub?”
“Where we met?”
“Yeah. That would be considered sentimental, right?”
I grin at him. “It definitely would be. I think we should go back there soon.”
