The Happiest Place On Earth
Chapter 23: The Boys Last Day (Part I)
Kaylani woke up and rubbed the sleep from her eyes. The sun was peeking in through her blinds and she could distinctly hear the sound of birds chirping outside her window. She pulled the corner of her bed sheets from her body and stretched her arms backwards, cracking her back in the process. It was only eight thirty in the morning but she decided it was the perfect time to wake up since she would have a long day ahead of her. Her feet slipped into her house slippers before walking over to her windows and pulling the curtains to the side so she could open her windows. The bright blue sky was calming and the sun was warm on her skin.
After staring out her windows for a few minutes Kaylani decided it was best to wake the boys. Alanis stayed at her own house since she lived next door and Jake would be joining them to hang out with the boys for their last day in California. Their flight wasn't until late at night, but they wanted to spend the entire day with their three new friends so they asked Kaylani to wake them up early so they could pack. They weren't planning on wasting any time today.
Kaylani walked down the staircase before heading into the kitchen to start a pot of water to make tea as well as staring a pot of coffee. Once both were starting to prepare she walked down the hallway to the guest rooms. As she pulled open the first door she noticed Zayn was taking up half of the bed with his legs on top of Liam while Niall was passed out on the floor. She allowed herself to chuckle slightly at the sight before opening up the windows to allow some light into the room. She knew the boys were going to be difficult to wake up so she wasted no time in heading over to the room with Harry and Louis and doing the same to their curtains. Lucky for Kaylani her parents were already at work so she would be able to execute her wake up plan.
After opening the curtains in the rooms, she walked over to the game room and plugged in her iPod. Personally, Kaylani loved to wake up to the sun shining and music playing. After scrolling through her iPod for the perfect song, she decided on Die Young by Ke$ha. She slowly turned the volume higher until it was blaring enough that she could barely hear herself think.
Smirking to herself she walked back to the boys' room when she saw they all had a pillow covering their heads. Kay merely shook her head before jumping on the bed with Zayn and Liam and scream-singing in their ears. They were both groaning in response but she wouldn't stop until they were awake. Finally Liam screamed he was awake and in an attempt to get Kaylani to stop, he pushed Zayn off the bed who groaned in response before agreeing to wake up. 'Two down, three to go' Kaylani thought to herself. She went to Niall next and did the same to him. He was a bit less stubborn though so after jumping on him and promising she would make breakfast he started to rub the sleep from his eyes.
She walked to the next room and saw that Harry and Louis were cuddling and both had pillows pressed to their heads. She decided she would wake Harry up last so she went straight for Lou and sat on top of him before singing to him in his ear like she did with the other boys. He tried to push her off of him with no such luck, so he finally decided to get up and walk out of the room. He went to the other boys' room before jumping on the bed with them in attempt to wake up a little better. Finally with only Harry left to wake up, Kaylani smiled at his sleeping form before sitting on top of him and kissing his cheek. He smiled slightly in his sleep but didn't respond any other way. By this point the song had changed to I'm Yours by Jason Mraz so Kay started to sing softly in his ear while running her hand through his hair. She could visibly see his smile growing as he shifter underneath her. She pecked his lips and knew he was awake the minute he rolled onto his back and started to hold her waist. She could feel him smile as she pulled away. When she opened her eyes she noticed he was looking at her smiling.
"I should be woken up like that more often." His voice was raspy having just woken up and Kaylani couldn't help but smile at the sound of it. His voice was like music to her ears but the sound of his raspy voice was a definite turn on. He noticed her smiling which caused his smile to grow in return. "Good morning, beautiful."
"Good morning sleepy head." Kaylani couldn't help but feel perfectly happy at that moment. She knew what was going to happen later in the day but this moment was perfect. "You boys better pack now if you want to have the rest of the day to do whatever you want." Kaylani noticed Harry's smile falter slightly at the mention of them leaving, but he quickly hid it and let his hand brush a stray hair from her face.
"Are the other boys awake already?" Harry noticed her nod her head before pressing her cheek into the palm of his hand. "Well as much as I love this moment, if you want to spend the day with the boys and me, I'm going to get up and I don't think you want me to throw you over my shoulder." Harry smirked when he saw the realization on Kaylani's face. She was still straddling him but quickly swung her leg over him and landed her two feet on the floor.
"I'll let you boys pack while I make breakfast." Kaylani gave Harry one last peck before walking out of the room. She looked into the other room to make sure the boys were actually awake and when she noticed they were already packing she let her smile fade slightly when she realized they would really be leaving today.
"We'll see you again soon, love. I'll make sure of it." Liam walked over to Kaylani and wrapped his arms around her. He saw the look on her face and knew it was going to be hard to leave. They had all grown attached to Kaylani, Alanis, and Jake over these two weeks and it felt like they have none each other for far much longer than they actually have. It was also going to be hard for him and Al to be apart just like he knew it would be hard for Kay and Harry. They had grown extremely close fairly quickly and he knew they would have the hardest time out of everyone, but him and the other boys made a promise to keep Kaylani happy and they had every intent on keeping that promise.
"Thanks, Li. I'm gonna go make breakfast while you boys pack and I'll call Al over." Kaylani could feel Liam nod his head before releasing her and giving her one last reasurring smile. The minute she was free from his comforting hold, she made her way to the kitchen and started to make breakfast. She could already feel tears pricking at her eyes. She hated goodbyes and she was just hoping she would be able to make it through this one alive.
After the group had finished eating Kaylani called Jake and Alanis over so they could all hang out. The boys were already packed and ready to go. Liam had called Paul earlier and made arrangements for Kaylani and Alanis to drive them all to the airport where they would meet him.
"So what are we doing today?" Jake, Kaylani, Alanis, and the boys were all huddled on the couches in the living room trying to think of things to do today. They didn't want to do anything that would be too public because they didn't want the paps to find them and ruin their day.
"We could go to the beach? I know of an area that doesn't have a lot of people." The boys all exchanged a look before turning to Kaylani and agreeing. For the entire time they had been in California they still hadn't gone to the beach. They were usually at Kaylani's house or at Disneyland.
"Perfect. Everyone go grab your stuff and meet here in thirty." Kaylani got up and walked to her room so she could grab her beach bag while Jake and Alanis went to grab their stuff from their houses. The rest of the boys went to grab their stuff as well but Harry followed Kaylani up to her room. He could tell something was wrong and he wanted to make sure she was okay.
"Kaylani." At the sound of her name being called Kaylani turned around and saw Harry standing in her doorway looking concerned. She knew he would be able to tell something was wrong. "What's wrong?"
Kaylani didn't want to say exactly what was wrong because she knew she was probably being silly. She didn't want to lie either though. "I'm trying to not think about it. I'm just not good with goodbyes." Kaylani didn't know how else to put it.
"Let's just enjoy the day we get to spend together and then worry about that when the time comes. But look at it this way, it's not goodbye. It's see you later." Harry knew saying goodbye to Kaylani was going to be extremely hard for him as well. He had grown attached to her so quickly.
"You're right. Let's just enjoy the day." Kaylani smiled at Harry before grabbing her bikini and heading into her bathroom to change. Harry decided to follow her lead so he went back to his room to grab his stuff and change as well.
"You alright mate?" Louis knew something was up with Harry the minute he walked into the room. The entire time the boys had been with Kaylani and Alanis, Harry had a glimmer in his eye, but right now it was slowly starting to fade.
"Yeah. I just don't want to have to say goodbye to Kaylani later." Harry was trying to be strong for Kaylani earlier but he knew just as much as she did it was all a front. He was hurting as much as she was.
"I know it'll be hard mate, but we'll see her soon. We all promised to keep her happy so I'm certain we'll find a way of doing that. Plus her and Alanis are on summer vacation for a while so who knows, maybe she can join us on tour for while. I know Eleanor would love some company when she joins us." Harry knew Louis had a point. They would find a way to make this work if it was the last thing he did.
The group was already at the beach and had been enjoying their time there. They were messing around in the ocean, eating, playing volleyball, and were planning on having a bonfire later that night. They were lucky with the spot Kaylani knew of as well. There had only been a couple people to approach the boys and ask for a picture. For the most part it seemed like they were the only ones at the beach.
Kaylani watched in admiration at her friends running around the beach and having fun. She would never get tired of seeing the smile on all of their faces. She was sitting on the beach tanning and taking pictures of her group of friends. She had been taking a lot of pictures of the boys because she always wanted to remember the moments they shared. They helped her be happy again and she would always be thankful for that.
"Kaylani! Stop taking pictures and come join us!" Louis was in the water tackling Niall when he paused to call Kaylani over. She looked to the group when she noticed they were all staring at her expectantly. She decided she might as well join them so she took her cover up off of her body and headed towards her friends.
"Dang. We should've come to beach a lot sooner." Niall winked at Kay before being pushed under water by Harry.
"Eyes off my girlfriend!" Kaylani could feel the blush on her cheeks as Harry spoke those words. She continued to walk farther into the water until only her head was above water. She dunked under and let her hair get wet. She loved the beach and she missed the smell of the water and the calm setting. She closed her eyes in bliss before she felt two strong arms wrap around her waist.
"I love this." Harry buried his face in the nape of her neck as he squeezed a little tighter. He felt like she was going to dissappear at any moment and he didn't want that to happen.
"Me too. We'll be able to do it again soon though." Kaylani was trying to remain optimistic about the whole situation. She turned around in Harry arms before kissing him gently.
"Hey love birds! Stop snogging and join in on our game!" The boys were playing volleyball in the shallow parts of the ocean. Kaylani and Harry smiled and chuckled lightly before entertwining their hands and joining their friends.
It was one of those moments where everything seemed perfect and neither wanted to let it go. Harry and Kaylani couldn't stop looking at each other and every time they would catch the other looking they would smile their largest and most genuine smile before being yelled at by one of the boys to pay attention. They were truly happy and they knew that was all that mattered. They both realized in that moment that they would be able to make it through the separation as long as they remembered how happy they were everytime they were together these past two weeks. They knew they would still be able to talk or video chat and as hard as it would be they would be okay. They would be okay because neither one was willing to let go of something so special. It was in that very moment, that Harry and Kaylani realized the truth...
They were falling for each other, and they were falling hard.
