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

But what she didn't know is that whens he accepted his deal, Payton had no idea what she had signed up for. Now she's stuck in a six month realtionship with a certain curly haired boy.

Cover Up

Chapter 15

{Payton's POV}

"We can go shopping or to the movies? Oh! I know we can go shopping then the movies and maybe we can even go out to eat afterwards." Alyssa ranted from the other side of my bathroom door as I got changed.  

"Or we can stay home and do nothing?" Cara tried to reason with her, but Alyssa hasn't left the flat in about a week in fear of getting mobbed. Actually none of us have really been out since Harry's birthday seeing that since then the paparazzi have gotten worse.  

"No we need to go and get some sun, I am starting to turn pale from the lack of sun." Alyssa complained as I finally walked out of the bathroom with only my shoes left to put on. "Payton tell Cara we need to go out and stop being cooped in this flat." Alyssa said trying to pull me into her argument with Cara.  

"Cara she has a point we've been locked up in here way too long, you know Louis actually called me yesterday asking if I was alive?" I said slipping on my black heels before grabbing my leather jacket.  

"Fine, but if we get mobbed or kidnapped I am blaming you." She said pointing her figure at me while my phone went off in my back pocket.  

"Hello?" I said not even bothering to check who was calling, which lately has been becoming a bad habit.  

"Hello Payton, how has your day been?" I familiar voice asks from the other side of the phone.  

"It's been pretty good." I skeptically answer until the familiar voice spoke again.  

"That's great I hope you didn't have any plans today." I heard say before the realization of who was calling set in. "Because I have a bit of plans for you and Harry today." Simon says before I mentally groan at the fact I'll have to cancel my plans with the girls for Harry.  

"What did you have in mind Simon?"I asked slipping on my shoes and heading into the living room with Cara and Alyssa trailing behind me.  

"I would like you and Harry to make it finally official today." He said as I looked around for my purse that I knew was laying around somewhere in the living room.  

"You want us to tell the world we are 'dating' today?" I asked Simon hoping I had heard wrong, but honestly I didn't feel like dealing with Harry today. After hearing all the things that he did to Branden, the respect that I had gathered for him had disappeared.  

"Is there a problem with that?" Simon challenged, as he noticed the reluctancy in my voice.  

"No, not at all. How would like this done?" I asked him as I finally spotted my black studded bag on the other side of the room.  

"Go out on a nice lunch hold hands, do little cute things, kiss his cheek, and just things you would see cheesy couples do. Later in the night have Harry take a picture and post it on twitter or Instagram with the caption: Had a lovely night with my girlfriend. Make sure he adds a smiley face or a heart just a small little emoticon." Simon instructs as I look in the mirror once more before deciding I looked decent.  

"Sounds like a plan, I'll go over and tell him right now." I said before Simon said goodbye and hung up.  

"I am guessing you aren't going to be going shopping with us?" Alyssa asked as I let out a defeated sigh.  

"Sorry Lyss, gotta head off to work." I joked which made Alyssa and Cara share a strange look before nodding. They both mumbled a good bye and be careful before I walked out of the door in search for Harry. I knocked on their door hoping that Harry was actually home today. Since lately I have noticed he had been going out a lot more often than usual. He would leave around 11 in the morning and not come home until 3 of 2 in the morning the next day. I knock on the door praying he answered and not one of the other boys.  

"Payton." Louis says opening the door after a few seconds of waiting.  

"Hey Lou is Harry home?" I asked stepping into their flat after Louis motions for me to walk in.  

"Yeah he's in his room, here I'll go get him." He offers rather quickly. He looked nervous almost worried about something.  

"Nah, I got it Lou why don't you go back go doing whatever it was you were doing." I said smiling at him before walking past him towards Harry's room. I knock on the door and after not getting a response I knock one more time before slowly turning the knob and walking inside. "Harry?" I call out to him hoping he was awake. I took other step in only to find the door to the bathroom allowing someone to come out.  

"Oh, sorry." A tall brunette said before walking past me to Harry's bed. After giving him a kiss on the forehead and leaving a note on his beside table. Anger seems to boil in my veins and I slam the door to Harry's room so hard that the walls seem to shake.  

"Payton!" Liam shouts, as be rushes out of his room with an umbrella in hand. "Was that really needed?" He asked as I turn around and walk towards the living room where Louis stood completely guilty.  

"Tell him to get dressed and to meet me in my car." I told Louis not even bother to acknowledge the fact Louis was trying to apologize for Harry. "And tell him to hurry the fuck up I have other stuff I need to do." I said walking out of the flat the second Harry's voice speaks out asking Louis what was going on.  


It has been a half an hour since I went to get Harry and the fact he still hasn't come down is only angering me more. After a few more minutes there was a tap on my window with Harry standing there waving his hand signaling he wanted me to move over. I completely ignore him and after another minute of waiting for me to move, he gave up and sat in the passenger seat.  

"We could have taken my car." He said as he buckles himself up and allows me to speed out of the garage.  

"I don't know how many diseases that car may have." I spoke out after a few minutes of the tense silence around us.  

"Diseases? Seriously Payton are we going to play this game?" Harry replied while rubbing his forehead probably from the hangover that was starting to hit him. Normally I would feel bad and even offer to go stop and get him some coffee, but today I feel like he deserves every stab of pain. 

"Sleeping with random people, seriously Harry are we going to play this game?" I ask mocking his voice and accent. I don't know why it bothered me so much to think that Harry was still walking around sleeping with people. It was probably just the thought that he was making out and fucking these random people and only hours I have to kiss him.  

"Payton, why are you so upset over this. You're acting like I killed a puppy or something." Harry asks me while waving his hands around. For some reason this had finally just been enough, I pull over and shut off the engine causing Harry to let out a frustrated sigh,  

"Maybe it's the fact that your going around fucking random people that most likely have some sort of disease and then you come here and kiss me!" I shout at him with all my anger finally finding a release. I watch Harry as he sits there and watches me with his express looking utterly bored.  

"It's sad you think so low of me." Harry says after a few minutes of silence. "You honestly think I chose to let these people into my house, into my bed with me?" Harry asks sounding disappointed in me. "Management sends them to me, to keep up my "appearance" once a week they make me go out and send me these girls." He starts and I let an small humorless laugh leave my lips.  

"You honestly expect me to believe that management is sending you all these girls?" I said turning around so I could face Harry. "I am not an idiot, Harold." I stated and I saw the way his entire mood changed with my easy denial of his "explanation." 

"Payton for God sakes you've spent over three weeks with me, how have you not learned who I truly am." Harry said turning to face me so he could speak to me.  

"So you want me to believe that Simon sent me here to cover up a problem that doesn't even exist?" I said crossing my arms over my chest glaring at Harry as he passing his hand through his messy curls. 

"Payton don't you see it! They made the problem and now they can't fix it!! The "image" that they created is getting away from them. They didn't send you cover up my problem they sent you to cover up theirs."
