Louis Doesn't Have To Know

Sophie Ayers never intended on meeting Louis, yet she was so thankful that she did. He showed her what it was to love, and how it was to BE loved. He healed her broken heart, and did it with that gorgeous smile on his face. But when Danielle and Liam break up and Sophie goes to comfort him, he tells Sophie it was because Danielle suspected him of having feelings for HER...and that his ex girlfriend wasn't wrong. Sophie soon finds herself caught in an addictive web of lies, schemes, and cheating. She falls in love with BOTH One Direction boys, and is unable to choose one over the other. Liam has an idea though: Louis doesn't have to know...right?

28. Explaining

Back to 2016, the living room...


Sophie mouthed the word, and Harry could see desperation written all over her face. Was she seriously asking him not to say anything? How could she possibly expect him not to say anything, Louis is his best friend! He couldn't believe this was really happening. Sophie? And Liam? It couldn't be possible...Sophie loved Louis, it was obvious! She was married to him for crying out loud, she even had a kid with him! This was unbelievable...

Harry suddenly stood up from the arm of the couch so quickly that he tripped himself up and almost fell down. Niall, Zayn, and Louis stopped talking and turned to look at him. Liam took one step forward, uncrossing his arms and suddenly taking very shallow breaths. Was Harry about to do something really stupid?

Sophie kept staring up at Harry, silently begging him not to say anything, to give her a chance to explain.

"Harry mate, you alright?" Zayn asked, still sitting on the arm of the love seat next to Niall, who looked equally concerned. Louis was bouncing Lilly up and down on his knee, his arm still around Sophie's waist. Harry suddenly felt sick to his stomach at the sight. His best friend had no idea that his wife was a cheater, a liar. He also had no idea that one of his best friends was just as bad. Liam had broken the friend code a thousand times over, and breaking the friend code was unforgivable...

Harry recovered from his almost fall and stood back up straight, stuffing his hands in his pockets, then quickly pulling them back out and start rubbing his arms with his hands, slowly stumbling over his words, "Erm, yeah, 'm good, I just--"

"Harry can I speak with you in private for a moment please?" Liam suddenly interrupted, stepping up to Harry and grabbing his arm to pull him towards the kitchen. He wasn't going to let Harry spill anything, if Louis or anyone else was going to find out, then he would be the one to them, in an appropriate manner of course.

Harry stood his ground though, not letting Liam move an inch. He felt disgusted at his bandmate's touch. How could Liam do that to Louis? What kind of a friend was he?

"Don't touch me" Harry whispered menacingly as he turned his face so that he was just inches away from Liam's. No one else in the room heard this, but they did see Harry shove Liam's hand off of his arm very rudely. Sophie was holding her breath at this point, terrified over what was about to ensue.

"Come on mate, just let me explain" Liam whispered back.

Harry turned and looked Liam in the eyes. His friend was begging, he could see it.

"Everything alright boys?" Louis asked suddenly.

Harry and Liam kept on looking at each other, having a silent conversation. Liam was pleading with Harry, and Harry didn't want to hear it. The room became very tense.

Finally, after what seemed like ages but was really just a matter of seconds, Harry sighed and nodded to Liam. Liam and Sophie remembered to breathe and exchanged a relieved glance at each other.

Harry turned back to Louis and gave him a fake smile. "Yeah mate, everything's okay. I'm just going to step outside and have a chat with Liam real quick."

"Oh alright. What about?"

Harry opened his mouth but no words came out. Probably about how he's been shagging your wife for about three or four years, and maybe still is even now, he wanted desperately to say. But he couldn't, at least...not yet. Louis was still really upset about what had happened with Sophie earlier.

"Oh Haz just wants to hear about how my conversation went with Taylor Swift the other day, don't you Harry?" Liam said jokingly, grabbing the back of Harry's neck in a friendly way, making the other boys laugh. Harry tried to laugh over it too, but it was pretty pathetic. No one said anything about it though. Sophie didn't even laugh, just kept looking back and forth between Harry and Liam.

"Come on old boy!" Liam said, and pulled Harry in the direction of the front door...


After Harry and Liam had grabbed their coats and exited the house into the biting winter air, Harry had shoved his hands in his coat pockets and stormed off to the sands of the lake beside Louis and Sophie's flat. There was about two minutes of awkward and tense silence before Harry finally spoke.

"How long?" was the first thing he asked.

"It started the night Danielle broke up with me." Liam said very bluntly. There was no use trying to hold anything back now.

"Jesus, Liam!" Harry shouted, throwing his hands up in the air before knotting them in his curls, twisting about and fidgeting. "Are you a bloody idiot?! How could you do this, he's one of your best friends!"

"Harry you don't understand, it's not--"

"There's nothing to understand Liam! There's no excuse you can make, there's nothing you could possibly say to make this alright!" Harry was yelling now, and Liam was glad they were down at the lakefront, otherwise everyone in the house would have surely heard them. "I can't believe you of all people would do this, Liam! You're supposed to be the responsible one, the mature one and now I find out that you've been screwing your best mate's girl, his wife!"

Now it was Liam's turn to shout, "That's not what it's like Harry, you don't know! It's not just about sex, and we finished it after they got married!"

Harry was hardly listening, still spinning about in confusion and frustration. He picked up a rock and chucked it out into the water, not waiting to see it splash before whipping back around to Liam. "That's bullshit Liam, I saw the way you looked at her inside, and the way she looked back at you! Don't you dare fucking lie to me--"

"I'M IN LOVE WITH HER HARRY!" Liam interrupted, screaming in his friend's face. He had stepped up to Harry and grabbed him by the shoulders and shook him, just to make him stand still and stop spinning around like an idiot.

Harry's jaw dropped and his shoulders fell. Liam was shaking, he couldn't believe he had finally said that out loud to somebody. It was such a...relief.

"You...you what?" Harry asked slowly.

Liam sighed and relaxed his shoulders, dropping his hands away from Harry. He looked down and took a deep breath. He felt like a huge weight had been lifted off of him.

"I'm in love with her Harry" he said yet again. Harry just kept staring. Liam laughed sadly and looked past Harry for a moment at the water. "I'm in love with her Harry. Have been for about three years. We saw each other behind everyone's backs up until she and Louis got married. The last time we were...'together' was the night that he proposed. I couldn't do it anymore after that. She couldn't either. She loves me too mate...but she loves him more. Do you understand Harry? Do you understand why I don't come around as much anymore? Do you understand why it kills me on the inside every time I see her with him and Lilly? It's because I wish it were me! It's because I'll never fall out of love with her. Do you--"

Just then, Liam decided to look back at Harry and see how he was taking all this in, but he saw that Harry had gone extremely pale. He was white as a ghost and his green eyes were wider than Liam had ever seen. His friend wasn't even listening to him or looking at him, instead he was looking past him, up the hill back towards the house.

Liam slowly turned around on his heel to look behind him and see who was there.
