Cover Up

“I was wondering if you would like to do a small job for me, it will involve a lot of your time, but I am willing to pay you whatever it takes.” He says staring at me for a response.

“What kind of job?” I asked questioning him. Simon only looks around before lowering his voice and speaking to me.

“I have a client and he’s a little off the rails in the erm…woman department.” I interrupt him clearing something up for myself.

“A manwhore?” I said raising my eyebrows at him

Cover Up


Chapter 16


{Harry's POV}


I watched Payton as she turned back around in her seat and turned the car on. I couldn't see her face completely seeing that her hair was covering most of my view. Payton hadn't even responded to what I told her and that was more terrifying than having to bring random people home.

"Payton." I asked hoping that she would look over at me and at least letting me know what she was thinking.

"We're here, go inside and save us a seat. I am going to go park the car." Payton said unlocking her car to make it easier for me to get out.

"Payton." I tried again, and she only moved the car out of park to signal she wasn't in the mood of dealing with me right now. Louis had said she seemed in such a great mood this morning and that only made me feel worse. I get out of the car and head inside only watching as Payton speed off to find a parking spot nearby. I stood outside for a few seconds making sure her anger didn't take control of her driving and cause her to do something reckless. After seeing that she had at least made around the corner safely I walk inside to save us a seat.

"Hi is it just you today, sir?" A tall brunette asked me as I looked around for a seat that Payton would like.

"No, my girlfriend will be eating with me today." I told the girl who finally was able to look at me properly.

"You're Harry Styles." She said her voice becoming a lot quieter and shy now that she saw who I was. "Wait did you say girlfriend?" She said looking behind me to try and find the person I was with. I wasn't expecting it, but when the waitress opened her mouth to say something I heard Payton speak up from behind me.

"Did you get us a seat, Harry?" Payton asked coming and standing next to me a smile plastered on her pink lips.

"No I was chatting with the waitress." I stated and saw how the smile on her lips faltered a bit before giving a curt nod and looking outside the window.

"I am sorry, here I'll get you two a table, away from the window correct?" The girl asked knowing that I probably didn't want to be near the window. I smiled and nodded my head at her before turning to Payton who still looked a bit angry, but seemed like she was a lot more calm.



We had been sitting in the restaurant for about the last two hours and Payton had calmed down and now even let small giggles leave her lips.

"Simon wanted us to take a picture and for you to post it on twitter." Payton spoke after taking a bite of the burger that was sitting in front of her. "He said to put the caption of had a great day with my girlfriend with a smile face or a kiss or whatever." She said taking another bite of her burger and glancing around the room.

"He wants us to come out?" I asked eating of the fries that came with my burger.

"I guess, he also said to be all cheesy to hold hands, steal kisses for each other and just act genuinely in love." Payton said finally placing her eyes on me, studying my face for any signs of disapproval with that.

"That's fine with me." I said waving it off like that was nothing big, but it felt nice seeing that now I could steal a few more kisses from Payton. The public display of affection that we had to put on might just make going and getting mobbed just a little bit more fun. "I know this lovely little park a few blocks from here, the paparazzi always hang out there, because the boys and I got here often. If you want we can stop there?" I ask Payton who only shrugged before finishing off her burger. I reach across the table and entwine our hands together. The same familiar tingle that Payton bought with her sparked in the hands as it slowly started to spread. I love the way the one little tingle could cause my entire mood to brighten up. After paying the bill we walked out of the small restaurant hand in hand.

"Do you want to drive seeing you actually know where we are going?" Payton asked leaning up and placing a kiss on my cheek, which was as far as she could reach, due to her height. A lazy smile forms on my lips before leaning down and placing a kiss on her forehead.

"Sure." I said stepping aside on the sidewalk so Payton could grab her keys from her purse. She handed me the keys to her one prized possession which was the black Camero she treasures. "I promise not to hurt it." I said sending her a small smile before reaching for her hand which she doesn't argue to.

"You better not." She threatens playfully before giving my hand a small tug so she could lead me to where she had parked her car. After turning the corner I saw her car sitting under one of the trees that lined the street. Leaving to Payton to be willing to walk an entire block just to make sure her car is safe. I unlock the car and walk over to the other side to open the door for Payton. "I know how to open the door to my own car, Harold."

"I was trying to be a gentleman." I said closing the door and running over to the driver's side.




"No." Payton repeated for about the fifteenth time since I asked her about going and taking a swim.

"Payyyton." I said stretching out her name out, hoping she would change her mind. "Come on, it'll be fun." I said taking her hands in mine and tried pulling her towards the lake.

"Harold, stop." She said trying to pull her hands away from me, but I give them a slight tug which makes her fall forward, landing against my chest. I wrap my arms around her waist as soon as I feel that she's is trying to pull away.

"Please." I plead trying to use the puppy dog face Niall always uses to get whatever he wants.

"Let me think about it," she said pausing to actually think about for a second, before finally responding. "I'll go swimming with you if you tell what happened between you and Branden." She tried to compromise with me. My arms instinctually wrap tighter around her small waist at the mention of Branden. "Harry." She said moving her small hands to my cheek and cupping them in her hands. She stand her toes and presses her soft lips to mine, making me instantly relax. "There are photographers here." She whispered onto my lips before pulling away. Of course there was, it was Payton we were talking about. She wasn't going to just kiss me to get me to spill a little history on me and Branden. She always had a reason her every action, even the simplest of smiles had a motivate behind it.

“Payton do you really want to know?” I said placing my hands on her shoulders and locking my eyes on hers. I know I shouldn’t be scared to tell her, but she had every right to know. She nodded her head at me before placing her head on my chest letting me place my chin on top of her head. “How about if I tell you what happened with Branden you’ll tell me what happened with your parents?” I tried to compromise with her. The entire subject of her parents had always been touchy and I know that even now with the deal of knowing what the entire hatred between me and Branden was she was still reluctant.

“Harry, I don’t think you want to know.” She said hiding her head deeper in my chest as the paparazzi tried to subtlety take pictures of us together.

“Payton, you know me I won’t judge you and I’ll listen so please, just let me in.” I said placing another kiss on her forehead. After a few seconds I hear her sniffle before raising her head and looking at me.

“You go first, though.”


Author’s Note:

This story is getting scattered. I am starting to hate this story now…-.-  I’ll probably have to go and rewrite these last few chapters.

Well at least you guys finally get to know what happened to Payton’s parents and what Harry has against Branden.
