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.

Chapter Three

27th February 2012

Lorelei wrapped a towel around her head and pulled on some clean clothes. She was still grinning like a maniac after the events at the restaurant. It was fun. Stepping out of the bathroom, she beamed at the five boys that were sitting in her room.

"We're going to do karaoke tonight; wanna come?" Louis bounced on the bed looking like a child at Christmas. Was that the right way to describe it?

"Yea," Harry chimed in, "We can hear you sing then." Lorelei suddenly felt embarrassed. She wasn't really confident and singing in front of these five might have been nerve-racking.

"Urm, I don't any clothes for the night-life." She tried to get out of it but Harry wrapped his arms around her.

"That's alright, I know this shop where you can buy some!"

"Ur, I'm not very good with fashion." She started to fiddle with her fingers.

"Liam and I will help you pick an outfit. I'll even pay for it."

"You don't have to-"

"Nonsense!" Niall exclaimed happily. "Harry won't take no for an answer."

"I'm sure we can find you something."

"I could get our stylist to help us?" Liam offered whipping out his phone. Lorelei was about to protest but he already had the phone next to his ear. There was no way out of it now.

"Don't worry, Cassidy is awesome." Harry grinned at her. Why didn't that make her feel better? It was his grin. "She sorts us out everything we're on the road and when we're shooting our videos or press related events."

"Being stars sounds scary." It did. Lorelei was glad that she was just a shy girl from Manchester.

"Nah!" Niall beamed at her. "I mean we get free food and the Brits, the Brits was amazing!" She tried to smile at this.

"I watched the Brits and you were wasted. Even Liam was." She pointed an accusing finger at the latter. He shrugged.

"We just won our first Brit, what do you expect?" That was right, Lorelei was drunk herself. Drunk on the excitement that her best friend had won his first award. Alcohol didn't go down very well with her.

"Ah, Lorelei, d'ya have your 18+ ID on you? You won't be able to get into the karaoke bar otherwise." Niall smiled as she rummaged through her bag.

"I won't have to perform in front of strangers, right?"

"Nah, they take us to a room where the six of us perform for each other." Okay, Lorelei could do that. She could perform in front of the most handsome bunch of boys who were known around the UK and, now, the rest of the globe. "Don' worry, I've heard you singing in the shower." She felt her cheeks heat up.

"Oh, I'd wouldn't have put you down as a perv, Nialler." Louis smirked at his Irish friend who went red himself.

"I meant I could hear her from the other room." Harry fell back onto the bed laughing his head off. Lorelei's lips twitched and she smiled.

"That's okay, I believe you." Niall matched her expression.

"Aw, you two are so cute!" Harry laughed holding onto his sides. She gave him a sour look. Why did it seem as though she was handling a younger sibling when it came to Harry?

"Harold," she breathed lightly, "What're you laughing 'bout? I'm not 'cute'. In fact, I'm quite hideous." Harry looked up at her and frowned.

"What? You're not, you're quite beautiful. From your hair down to your smile." Niall told her with a shy smile. Everyone, including Lorelei, gazed at him.

"I... I guess dressing up won't be so bad..." She managed taking the towel off of her hair. "I just need to dry my-"

"Cassidy can do that," Louis beamed, "She'll even keep it your natural style. I get turned on by curlies." He winked at her and Harry. The two shyly turned away. Lorelei wasn't just to this much attention. Unless it was Simon... Speaking of the devil, her phone buzzed. She opened the text from him and read;

Hey Rory,

I'll be back late. El & the others ave invited me to go clubbing and I now how you dislike that sort of stuff. Could you tell the front desk that I'll be late? Oh, and, don't say up too late, kay? ;)

Love from your friend-with-benefits [LOL! :L], Si x

"What's a friend-with-benefits?" Louis asked suddenly making Lorelei aware that he was looking at her text. She went bright red.

"We're...we're close friends. He was my boyfriend at one point but now we're just friends. Its a joke of sorts."

"You better text your friend-with-benefits back then." Why did Niall sound hurt when he said that? Lorelei looked up to defend herself but he had already left the room.

"I'll go fetch him." Zayn trailed after their Irish friend. Harry sighed shaking his head.

"This just proves my theory."

"What theory would that be?" Liam questioned folding his arms across his chest.

"I can't say for certain but I think Niall is in love with Rory." Lorelei felt her heart stop for a nano-second. "But it could be because he's a good friend of yours."


Harry was right when he said that Cassidy was awesome. The woman would listen to your likes and dislikes before applying anything. It certainly made Lorelei feel more comfortable. The stylist had even bought outfit that she liked or was comfortable. Although Cassidy insisted upon her natural style, her hair plaited instead of being left down. The stylist had picked out a pair of black leggings along with a red dress. Lorelei put on her converse which, surprisingly went well her outfit.

Stepping out of her the hotel, she glanced around. It didn't take her long to spot the boys standing near a black range rover. Lorelei strolled over and beamed at them. Niall was eating a bag of chips but paused midway when he noticed her. He then retreated back to his chips. Harry and Louis wolf whistled in unison.

"Wow, you might get lucky tonight!" Harry winked at her earning a growl from Niall. Ignoring him, the curly-haired male opened the door for her.

"Will everyone fit in here?"

"That's okay," Liam smiled, "I'll be behind you in my own car." He held up he car keys nodding to Zayn who followed. Niall copied their actions. "Nialler, go with Harry, 'kay?"


"I don't want your greasy hands in my car." The blonde rolled his eyes and skipped to the darker car. Harry got out his keys and slid into the driver's seat.

"Remember, what your instructor taught you?" Louis teased earning a playful thump from Harry.

"I'm not stupid, Boobear." That earned a chuckle from his friend.

"I know, Hazza." He sighed. "I wish Eleanor was with us but, oh well." Lorelei saw Harry's hands grip tighter on the steering wheel. His knuckles was beginning to go white. "Let's put the radio on!" Louis launched forward before anyone could protest and started to flick through the channels. He then stopped when the song I Want U Back by Cher Lloyd came on. Harry tapped his fingers against the wheel.

"And now you're taking her to every restaurant and everywhere we went," he sang, "Come on. And now you're taking to every restaurant..." He turned his head slightly to face Louis and ploughed, "Remember what you and I did first?" Suddenly he turned back to face the road and gulped. "Ur, I've had enough of this." He switched off the radio making Louis pout in annoyance.

"You're no fun, you know that?" Lorelei suddenly felt awkward with the sudden thickness of the air emitting between the pair. She nervously glanced at Niall who matched her expression. It seemed as though this little conversation hadn't happened before. She hoped that everything was alright when they got to the bar.
