Shocking Inside Secrets & Lies

"Cheryl Foxx?" He had to be certain as he knew a lot of Cheryls. Whether it was his old school chums or work buddies, Perry knew almost everyone. Anne giggled lightly and nodded.

"Well, yea, she does live here." She then grabbed onto his arm. "C'mon let's get you a drink; you look thirsty." Perry beamed as he followed her into the kitchen.

Eighteen years ago, Lorelei's father did something stupid and it is going to smack right in his face when he finds out the consequence of this venture. Along the way, Lorelei discovers she has a younger brother and that she is falling for one of her friends


10. Chapter Nine

Chapter Nine

A few days later...

Lorelei pressed her phone to her ear, closing her eyes tightly knowing what was going to happen next.

"Harry Styles is your brother!" Persephane's squeal emitted through the receiver making Lorelei shudder violently and Niall to giggle at her reaction.

"Be quiet," she hissed making sure that her squealing friend didn't hear. Lorelei rubbed at her temple as the squeals continued. "You're giving me a headache," she grumbled into the phone.

"Sorry," Persephane giggled lightly. "Its just so exciting. I knew it though! I mean, you and Percy always had that Harry look. Anything else you've been keeping a secret, eh? Like, for example any Irish friends?" Lorelei's eyes widened.

"Who have you been talking to?"

"Simon told me via Skype yesterday," she sighed lightly. "Wasn't he suppose to?"

"I'm gunna throttle that blonde bitch when I see him." Louis entered the den, with a carrot in his mouth and a bag of carrots securely in his arms. Lorelei glared at him. "Louis, put those back!"

"Oh my God!" Persephane squealed once more making Lorelei face palm. Why had she said that out loud? "Are you with 1D? Quick put Zayn on!"

"No," her friend whined. "Zayn's out at the moment. I'm only with Niall and Louis."

"Okay, put Louis on the phone."

"No, he has to put my mum's carrots away." Lorelei reached out to grab the carrots but ended up toppling forward and onto Niall. The two ended up on the floor with her straddling Niall. The phone laid on the floor, forgotten.

"Bitch! Lorelei let me talk to them." Persephane's screamed from the phone. Louis zoomed forward and picked it up.

"I'll talk to her and put Julie's carrots back." With that he left Niall and Lorelei to their devices. She hadn't gotten up yet and she didn't want to. Instead, she leaned down looking deeply into Niall's eyes.

"Have you ever fallen for someone you shouldn't?" He sighed heavily not knowing what to say. She continued when he remained quiet. "Because I'm falling for you, Niall Horan..."

"Me too," he replied pressing his lips against hers. Their first kiss, if that's what you could call it, was short lived when Billie and Greg entered the room. The two quickly sat up and inched away from each other, their faces bright red.

"Is everything okay?" Billie asked sitting down on a bean bag. Niall suddenly fake gasped.

"You're sitting on Ernie!" Lorelei giggled and wrapped her arms around her friend. Bille shot the pair an odd look."

"He means the bean bag, babe. My uncle Ernie gave it us when the den was complete and we gave it that nickname in the memory of him."


"Yea, Uncle Ernie passed away nearly a year ago." Greg clarified with a nod of his head. "Although, he wasn't our real uncle, or Lorelei's, he treated us well and we loved him." Lorelei nodded with a soft smile.

"I wish he could meet the guys; he'd love them and I bet he's proud of Niall." She squeezed his shoulders. Just then Harry came bounding into the room.

"Rory, I need a private word with you!" He pleaded before turning to Billie. "Oh, Liam wants to have a word with you. He's outside of your room." The latter stood up and left the den.

"Oh, shall we go for a walk?" Lorelei asked with a polite smile letting of Niall. She kissed the blonde's check and followed Harry out of the room. Niall smiled dreamily making Greg playfully hit him.

"N'awh! Love is in the air," he sang making his brother glare at him.

"Be quiet you!"


"What did you call me for?" Billie invited Liam into his room. Sitting down on his bed, he waited for an answer.

"I need some advise. You see my girlfriend just dumped me and I'm unsure of how everyone is going to react because I was with her for a while."

"Tell them, they're your friends." Billie replied as a bit of his fringe flopped in front of his eyes. Without thinking, Liam leaned forward and removed it. He just couldn't stop and their faces ended up inches apart. "Liam..?" Billie squeaked, his face heating up.

"Yes..." He was about to close the gap when a voice interrupted them.

"Billie, do you the dates of the tour?" Liam moved away from Billie and eyed the intruder. Zayn. He looked between the two but appeared to shrug it off. "The tours dates?" He repeated.

"Oh, urm, Mr Cowell is going to text me when they become definite."

"Do you know the locations?"

"The main cities and some added locations." Billie replied, routing around the drawers. "I remember drawing up a plan a few days ago. I was thinking about going through them with you guys and Lorelei."

"Harry went out with Rory around ten minutes ago though." Zayn replied. "They went for a stroll or something."

"The media's going to love that." Billie mumbled. "1D's Harry Styles Steps Out with long-lost sister or something catchy." Liam groaned his agreement.

"Well we can't stop them, can we? I think they need time alone together to get used to the idea." Zayn and Billie looked at him.

"You think like me." The tour manager smiled softly. "I like that. I've find a kindred spirit." Liam thought it was a cute smile. Cute? He mentally slapped himself. He shouldn't be thinking that way about someone he had just met. A guy to top it off.


Lorelei sat down on the sand and patted the space beside for her brother. She smiled reassuringly at him when he hesitated. Harry then dropped onto the sand and groaned in pleasure.

"Damn! This sand is warm." His sister giggled lightly falling back so that she was lying down. "Why is this place so empty?"

"Its my hiding place. Only Niall and my uncle Ernie know of this place." Harry turned to look at her.

"You come here with Nialler?" She nodded her head, slowly. "Is there anyone else?" She shook her head, no. "How would you manage that when you like him?"

"That's the question, is it not?" Lorelei smiled at him. "Anyway, how you talked to Louis yet?" She was met by silence. "Harold," she grunted. "Do it soon, okay? Or else, he will be snatched up by somebody else. That, and I'll tell him myself." Harry playfully hit her.

"You will do no such thing." He jutted out his lip and Lorelei thought he resembled a child sulking. She smirked at him and wiggled her eyebrows at him. Harry gulped. She would tell him. "You're like the female version of Louis, I swear down."

"That's me." She giggled sweetly. "So, why are you holding back?"

"Urm," Harry hummed turning away. His cheeks were warming up and he didn't want Lorelei to see. "I doubt he likes me in that way."

"Don't doubt yourself, Harold. I know for a fact that Louis returns your feelings." She sat up and wrapped her arms around her brother in a hug. "Trust me. I've seen the look of longing when his eyes drift over to you. I've look at Niall with the same longing."

"N'awh! He looks at you the same way, Roobear." Lorelei frowned at the nickname and pinched his nose.

"I gathered that myself thank you, when we..." She trailed off, her face going bright red. Harry grinned at her.

"When you what?" Lorelei tried to turn away but he pulled her into a hug. "Did you two kiss?"

"Get off of me, Harry Edward Styles!" She wiggled but he tightened his grip and chuckled darkly. "Be careful of your back."

"It'll be fine. That's so good that the two of you kissed." Harry's grinned widened. "Its inspiring. I just have to talk to Louis."

"Hm, I need to talk to Niall anyway. I'll get him to meet at the treehouse." She wipped out her phone and went to text the latter. "Harry do you have any credit? I've run out."

"Of course you can." He smiled and passed her his phone.

"Thank you, deary." She smiled taking his phone. Instead of texting Niall, she quickly highlighted Louis' number and typed in directions followed by;

To: Boobear

We need to talk. Follow the directions and I'll be waiting. ;)

H x

She hit send and quickly deleted it out of the sent box before passing it back to Harry. Lorelei stood up and smiled at him. "Stay here for a while, okay? I'll be back to walk with you later on." She winked at him before sprinting away.


Louis was in the kitchen on the hunt for carrots when his phone buzzed. He stopped his search to read the text. Gulping, he put the phone back into his pocket and stepped out of the kitchen only to collide with Lorelei's mother.

"Were you trying to steal my carrots again, mister?" Julienne held her hands against her hips as she gave Louis her best stern expression. "There will no more carrots unless I say so."

"Urm, sorry Mrs Cadogan-Fletcher." He felt his cheeks heat up. "Look, urm, I need to head out and meet Harry. He promised to hang out with me today."

"Okay but I won't let it slide next time." She sighed as Louis brushed past her. "Oh, and another thing." He turned to look at her. "Call me Julie; everyone does." He nodded his head with his signature smile creeping on his features before stepping out of the front door. It was time to face it and to tell his best friend everything.




Here's chapter nine done! The kiss was quick but that's how it was meant to be. They still need to talk things through firstly before they're an actual couple. Lorelei and Niall that is -_-

Oh, Lorelei's sneaky isn't she? Pretending to text Niall on Harry's phone only to text Louis instead. She's a clear bunny isn't she?

Right, we'll have to wait until the next chapter to find out have Harry's chat with Louis goes. If it goes down. We also get to see if Lorelei and Niall become a couple or if someone interferes in their budding romance.

Until chapter ten! Chelsea Leigh x
