23. Coming Clean

 

“E, I think you’re hiding something,” Ariana said slowly, having a seat on the couch next to Evelyn. Ariana had flown out to be in the video shoot for Harry, who had specifically requested her to be in video. Since her mother obviously didn’t approve of her living with her boyfriend during fall break for two weeks, she had temporarily moved in with Evelyn. 

 

“What do you mean? I-I’m fine,” Evelyn crossed her arms defiantly, trying not to show the true depression she was feeling. Ariana shot her eyebrow up, knowing that something was wrong. Nervously, Evelyn pulled out her phone, pretending to text, though Ariana swiftly threw the phone out of her hand. 

 

“No, you’re not,” Ariana replied, continuing to press Evelyn for information. “Ever since the Olympics, you’ve been... different. Not just with the break up, but as if you have been hiding something from me. And Niall.” 

Evelyn kept her eyes on the floor, biting her lip as she remembered... she hated to remember. It seemed like a strong memory was more of a curse than a fantastic blessing. 

 

“I... can’t say anything.” Evelyn closed her eyes, trying to keep herself from breaking. The secret pressed down on her shoulders more than anything that had ever happened in lifetime. Simon’s threat was the only thing that kept her from letting her words spill out. “I have to protect Niall.” 

 

“Niall?” Ariana reiterated, her stare going blank in confusion. “Who do you have to protect him from?” Instantly she realized that he might need protection from certain fans, maybe the Wanted... but there were security guards and binding contracts. Then the threat had to be from within Niall’s inner circle: the band, the managers, the guards.

 

“S-...” Evelyn stopped short, still unsure whether it was okay to say anything at all. She looked to Ariana, taking a deep breath. “I can’t hide this anymore. It’s destroying me.”

 

“Then tell me,” Ariana replied quickly, excited for the answers. 

 

“Simon made Niall sign a contract he wasn’t fully aware of,” Evelyn whispered. 

 

“How romantic! Someone should write a novel about this,” Ariana smiled, trying to make light of the situation. “He forbids your love,” she added dramatically, fanning herself. 

 

“Not just ours,” Evelyn replied, warningly. “But it also applies to Danielle, Liam, Harry, and you.” Ariana’s smile dropped into her stomach, a knot rising to her throat. 

 

“You were the first to fall,” Ariana murmured, staring into the emptiness before her. “I am the next... unless Perrie or Eleanor-”

 

“I’m afraid not,” Evelyn replied, standing, “Perrie represents Little Mix; Simon would never pass up an opportunity for promotion. Louis only signed onto One Direction to meet Eleanor, and Simon, for a fact, would never go back on his word.”

 

There was a moment of silence, as Ariana’s eyes wandered aimlessly, a plan formulating in her head.

 

“Come on,” Ariana said, taking Evelyn by the hand and dragging her out of the room. 

 

“Why?”

 

“We’re sneaking you on the Live While We’re Young set.”
