Remembering Katy Perry

Sixteen year old Maddie has lived a hard life. She also keeps a big secret. When she finds out the boy she met two years ago at a concert is Harry Styles, her life turns to chaos. She has to chose between her brutal, unforgiving past or the new, shining future with her love. It's an easy choice! At least it is until her past comes to haunt her future..


6. Taking Care Of Business

Harry's Pov

I watch Maddie walk out of the room and sigh. What an horrible first meeting. I can't believe Paisley showed up! She must be crazy. And then the whole thing with Maddie and the door. What the hell was that about? 

I feel someone's hand on my shoulder and assume it's Louis. I turn and see Niall standing there and I'm a little surprised. "You alright, mate?" he asks. I shrug. "I'm not sure. It's been a weird night. With Paisley showing up out of no where and Maddie nearly passing out over the door." 

I stop to take a breath and notice the guys have gone suspiciously quiet, like they were when I talked to them after the show. I start putting two and two together, and I slowly realize that they knew. I step away from Niall's hand roughly, and stare at Louis angrily. He should of told me! He's the person I could trust with my life, and he couldn't tell me about Paisley? 

"You knew." I spit out. He takes a step toward me, trying to explain himself. "Harry, you gotta understand. She called Liam and I and asked if it was alright if she could talk to you after the show. We didn't see a problem with it, you know? We had no idea you were going to see Maddie. Like, how were we supposed to know? And they did try stopping her from coming in." he ended, matter of factly. 

he was right. I run my hands through my hair. I couldn't be mad at him for something he didn't know was going to happen. None of us knew I was going to see Maddie tonight, let alone invite her back stage. It wasn't their fault.

 "How did you try and stop her?" I ask. 

"Well," Louis begins, "after Maddie had the whole episode thing with the door," Niall looks around, confused . "You and Haz keep talking about this door and her. What happened with it? Did you guys like shut it on her or something?" Louis shakes his head and stares at Niall like he's just asked the dumbest question ever. "No, we did not shut the door on her! I'll tell you what happened in a minute Niall. 

So I text Liam and told him to-" he was cut off by Liam. "He told me to not let Paisley in the room. His exact text was 'abort mission Paisley  Styles! It's a no go! Do not let her into this room...EVER!' so I grabbed Zayn and Niall and we went to go guard the door."  Liam took in a breath to continue, but Niall cut in excitedly, recovering from Lou's harsh tone. 

"So we're guarding the door, right, and here she comes walking down the hall like she owns the place. She gives us all a hug, which I think is a bit weird, but anyway, then she asks to go in and Liam tells her no, like nicely. She stepped back and was like 'what did you say?' and Zayn," he starts to laugh really hard, "Ok, so, Zayn looks at her and goes 'im sorry love, but Harry and Louis are in there, um, taking care of business, if you know what I mean' and her face! Oh my god, Harry, her face was priceless!" he laughs even harder along with Liam. 

I look at Zayn in disbelief. "You told Paisley me and Louis were 'taking care of business'?" he puts on the best 'what did I do wrong?' face I've ever and seen and shrugs. "I had to think of a quick cover and half the population already thinks you and Louis are dating. Whats the harm of one more?"

 I hear Niall bust up laughing again behind me and Liam giggling like a school girl. "Did she believe you?" I see Liam take a breath and try and stop laughing. "Yes! She did! It was brilliant. She looked like really surprised and was like 'are you serious?" he does a really good teen girl imitation. "and Zayn looked at her completely straight faced and nodded. Then Niall over there ruined it cause he couldn't keep his composure and completely lost it. She shoved poor Nialler out of the way and stormed in to see you and Maddie making kissy faces at each other."

 I feel my face turn pink and look at my shoes. It's amazing how interesting they become when Im embarrassed. "We were not." I say quietly. I see that Louis has a cheeky grin on his face and I groan. "It seems like our little Harold has a crush!" he says happily while pinching my cheeks. 

"I do not." 

"Lies!" Liam shouts.

 "We all seen the way you looked at her as she left, mate. Your definitely crushing." Zayn adds. "Ok, maybe a little," I admit. "But can you blame me? I mean, look at her!" 

"She's fit." Niall agrees. The rest of the lads agree to.

 "Oh! Louis! You were supposed to tell me about that thing with the door?" I snap my head up and glare at Niall. Id rather not have what happened with Maddie be brought up again, but Lou's already began to explain what happened. 

"Oh, your right! Ok, so after Harry had his little temper tantrum", he turned to give me a sharp look and a little wave of shame washed through me. 

"Yeah, sorry about that." i look  at Zayn while I apologize because he was the one I shoved. "'Salright mate." he responded cheerfully. 

"Anyway.." Louis but in, clearly annoyed. "After Haz left, you all know I went running after him and I caught up to him when he threw open the door and she freaked out! She was standing up then she flinched and covered her head like someone was coming at her with a baseball bat. And while Harry stood there like an idiot, I went and made sure she was ok. It was weird."

 I nodded, agreeing. "She looked like someone was coming to beat her, when she heard the door hit." I add.

 "She must of had like a bad experience as a kid with doors or something." Liam says. We all agree. 

I didn't want to talk about Maddie's freak out any more, so I changed the subject. "Anybody got the time?" Liam answered first like he always does when someone asks for time. "Quarter to twelve mate." I was shocked. I had to get to bed soon, so I won't Be tired for tomorrow. 

Oh, hell! I gotta ask the lads if they'll even come tomorrow. I try and think of a way to ask them, while looking at the brightly colored walls. I decide to play up the whole crush thing.

 "So, you guys have figured out that I like Maddie..alot. Well, I thought, maybe us and her and her friend could hang out tomorrow. Are you guys up for that?" I see all the guys look at each other and I get a little worried. 

What if they won't come? Will she be mad if I don't bring them? I look at Lou and mouth "please", hoping nobody else saw. They all kind of huddle together around a black fold up chair and whisper quietly. I count the seconds that go by mentally, and they seem to go slower each second.

Finally Liam pops his head up and walks toward me. He holds out his right hand, and I'm a little confused. What is he doing? Why does he want to shake hands? I grab it cautiously with my right hand and a warm smile forms on his face. "Of course we'll come with you, mate!"

 "We wouldn't leave you hanging like that" Zayn says, as he walks by and messes up my hair. Relieve floods through me. I sigh and let go of Liam's hand. "Thanks guys" I say, smiling. 

I tell the lads I'm going to bed and walk out of the room, hearing a chorus of goodnights.
