eight: handwritten notes & baking

The next morning, I roll onto my side and slowly open my eyes. Squinting my eyes, thanks to the brightness of the sun peeking in through my window, I let out a groan as I fall back on my pillow and cover my eyes. It was early and all I wanted was to go back to sleep. I catch a glimpse of Harry, who was asleep next to me, snoring away, his chest rising and falling as he did so. His curls were a mess atop his head and I could feel my lips curve up into a smile.

Apart from his loud snoring, I couldn’t hear a single thing. It was dead silent. I didn’t like it, especially if I was alone with the house to myself. Thank god I wasn’t alone and I had Harry even though he was sound asleep. Claire is always loud and making noise which results in me waking up. I have no idea what it was, it hasn’t been this quiet this early in the morning for a long time.

I slowly rise up from the bed being quiet as I could so I wouldn’t wake the sleeping boy beside me. I make my way over to the door and try to make less noise as possible as I pull my door open. As I slip out into the hallway, I hear Harry let out a muffled groan from his parted lips as he changes positions, his eyes still shut tightly. I pull the door shut softly hearing it click into place as I stepped into the hallway.

I continue on down the stairs to find no sign of movement or any kind of noise whatsoever. Everyone had left without even telling us where they were going. Typical Claire, always forgetting to tell me where she’s going when she leaves to go somewhere. I was used to it; the least she could do is leave me a note or a text, simple as that really.

After I make it down the stairs, I walk toward the kitchen to find it empty. The only thing I found was a note that was lying on the cabinet. At least I spotted it and didn’t mistake it for something else. I grab the tiny sticky note so I could read it.

My eyes scan across the page, squinting as I try to decipher what was written. It was way messier than Claire’s handwriting, so I bet it had to be one of the guys’ penmanship. It was barely legible at all.

The note read: Avery and Harry,

The lads, Claire and I are going to the store to pick up a few things. I’m sure if you’re just now reading this, you’ve just woken up. We’ll be back soon as we can. Claire hopes neither of you burn the house down. – Niall x

I just shake my head a bit and smile as I head back for the stairs. Claire was too much, having her boyfriend write a note instead of her doing it herself. I wanted nothing more than to crash back out once I get back up to my room. I bet Harry would still be asleep by the time I get back in my room.

As I walk in through my bedroom door, I notice him slowly beginning to wake up, rubbing his eyes as he sits up. There was a lazy smile on his face.

“Morning,” he mutters in a raspy tone as he looks at me.

“Morning,” I mutter back with a small smile.

“Claire and the guys went out; they left us a note telling us they would be back soon.” I tell him and take a seat on the edge of my bed. He just nods in reply as he sits up and pulls the comforter around his body a bit tighter. His two dove tattoos on his chest were exposed and he pulled the comforter up a bit more, covering his chest.

“What do you want to do until they get back?” I ask looking at him. I tried to keep myself from breaking out into a smile as I look at him. If the boys or Claire had been here to see what I was doing, they would have been joking about it to me already.

“Well, now that I’m up, a cuppa tea sounds great right now, if ya have the stuff to make it, that is,” he spoke in his slow manner, moving his left hand up to run it through his mess of curls atop his head. He soon moves and stretches his limbs a bit before swinging his legs over the side of the bed and standing up to his full stature.

I nod and turn away from him so I can keep him from seeing me smile. “I’ll um…I’ll go see if we have the stuff to make you that tea,” I tell him as I pull a long-sleeve shirt on over the tank top I wore from the nearest drawer and look over to see him standing there in basketball shorts and a shirt that now was covering his built inked up chest. He had a small smile on his lips.

I smile back in return before I begin to make my way toward the door. Once I was in the hallway, I continued to the stairs, Harry trailing close behind me. I begin to head down the stairs, a smile on my face. Once I made it down the stairs, I walk toward the kitchen and go over to the cabinet so I could look for the kettle. I soon find it toward the back and grab it before standing up and putting it on the nearest burner on the stove top.

I fill it up with water before I begin to heat it up on the burner. “I’ll keep an eye on this, love; you go get yourself something to eat,” Harry tells me, a smile on his plump lips.

“I might do that,” I say with a laugh. I go over to the pantry so I could find something to eat. There was hardly anything in there. The joys of going shopping for groceries, really fun, note the sarcasm. At least Claire and the boys were there, hopefully getting stuff to eat. I spot an unopened box of Duncan Hines brownie mix near the back.

“I couldn’t really find anything good, but look what I found…” I tell him with a smile as I pick up the box of brownie mix to show Harry.

He turns and his eyes widen a bit, a smile forming on his lips. “We could make them if you want, I’m up for it if you are,” he tells me with a smile as he pours himself the cup of tea he wanted. “Ya know, I used to work in a bakery in Holmes Chapel where I grew up, before I went and auditioned for the X Factor,” he tells me as he sets his tea down on the counter.

“I’m game,” I tell him with a smile. “I love baking, especially when I’m not having to deal with school,” I finish and close the door of the pantry.

“Let’s get to it then,” he says as I carry the box over and set it on the counter. After a few minutes of gathering numerous bowls and a few other necessities we need, we’re ready to get to baking these bad boys. This was sure going to be fun.
