The Lying Game

I'm Olivia. I lived with my mom and stepdad, but my mother is hardly ever home. Without my mom knowing, my stepdad, Andy, would hit me, kick me, and slap me if I didn't do things right. I couldn't take it anymore. I ran away to my best friends house. And that best friend was Louis Tomlinson. I'm very embarrassed about what had happened, and it upsets me to talk about. But it's hard going back to normal after what happened. When I finally land on my feet in London, I follow Louis and live his life with him. I become very close friends with the rest of the lads. Maybe a little too close. But I don't want to tell them my story. How many secrets can I keep from everyone? I guess I'll just have to play The Lying Game.

24. Chapter 24

I woke up the next morning seeing that my brother hasn't moved. He still had the blanket on his head and the pillow on his back. I laughed to myself and rolled back over to my side of the bed. I was about to wake him up but I decided to leave him be. I tied my messy hair into a ponytail and walked into the den. I reached for the remote and turned on the television. I went into the kitchen and made myself a bowl of cereal and put a cup of water into the microwave. I walked back into the den and ate my cereal until I heard the ding of the microwave. When it dinged, I got up and fixed the tea. "What none for me?" I turn around and see Grayson standing there scratching his leg. "Get your own." I say and take a small sip of the hot tea. It touches my lip and the tea burns my upper lip. I quickly put the cup down and hold my lip and close my eyes shut. "It's hot, idiot." Grayson says, putting a cup of water into the microwave. I turn around and kick him in the butt. He just ignores me and I feel over my lip. It's now cracked and is stinging. My eyes start to tear up and Grayson turns around and realizes that really did hurt me. He drops his shoulders and gets a piece of ice out of the freezer and hands it to me. I take it out of his hands. "Thanks." I lightly say. He half smiles and pats me on the head. I hold the ice on my lip and hand him a tea bag. He puts it in his hot water and we walk into the den. We get comfy on the couch and there is a long pause. "So what made you get up?" I say. He takes a sip of his tea. "I heard the microwave ding." He said. "So you don't wake up when I push you off my bed, but yet you do when the microwave dings and it's on the other side of the house." I say laughing. He rolls his eyes and smiles. "You will never make sense to me." I say. He laughs. "And I will never understand you." He says. There was another long pause. "Have you heard from Hannah? Or talked to her?" I asked. "Nope. Have you?" "No. I wonder where she is." I say. He nods and looks down at his feet. I know he misses her. We all where really close, before my father died. After that our family started to fall apart. Then my mom married Andy and everything changed. When I was 16 Hannah left. I was 17 when Grayson left. I sighed and Grayson did to. It was silent for a very long time. Grayson sat up a little and looked at me. "You know I missed you. A lot." He says. I smile big at him. "I missed you too. A lot." I say like he did. He smiles and puts his large arm around me. He playfully nuzzles his head on my shoulder and I giggle. I try to push him away but he puts me into a head lock, like he always used to do. "Grayson!" I yell. "I can't breath!" I yell laughing. He laughs and lets go. I inhale deeply and I slap his stomach. He rubs his stomach and lays back down. "So this Harry guy, is he sweet to you?" Grayson asks. I roll my eyes. "Yes, you don't have to go beat him up." I say. He nods. "I wanna meet him." He says. "Just promise not to do anything." I say. "I promise. I wasn't gonna do anything I just wanna meet who is dating my sister." He says. He has always been over protective like that. "Just don't do like you did when me and William where dating." I remember Grayson hated William. He didn't trust him at all. He would stare William down and get mad at me when I texted him. I should've listened to him. "Well I'm glad I did. I told you he was trouble." He said. "I knew you where trouble when you walked in!" I scream sing. Grayson rolls his eyes. "ANYWHO when is Harriet gonna be back." Grayson says. "Harry." I say. He nods and rolls his hand for me to move on. "And I think later today." I say. Grayson nods. I tell him about how I lied to the whole group about my family and all the other stuff. He sat there in amazement. "You did all that? I thought you where only good for playing football." Grayson jokes. I roll my eyes. "This is serious. You can't let him know. I will tell him when the time is right." I say. "Ok, ok." He says. "Go take a shower. You smell like boy." I say pushing him up. "Maybe cause I am one." He says, putting his palm on my forehead and try to hold me back. I drag him all the way into the bathroom and threw his bag into the bathroom and slammed the door shut. "Have fun!" I yell through the door. I hear him grunting then the shower head turns on. I find my phone and text Harry. "Looks like your going to meet my brother today" I say and hit send. He replies back "great!!x" I smile and lay my phone back on my bed. When Grayson is finally done, I get in after him. When I was finished, I wrapped the towel around me and ran into my room. I picked out a pair of dark skinny jeans and my LOVE PINK sweatshirt. I put my hair into a messy bun and walked out of my room. Grayson was sitting on the couch playing on his phone. "Where do you live now?" I ask while sitting down beside him. He looks up and his short hair was a little spiked up in the front. I hate to admit it, but he was really good looking. "Here in London. Right down the street, actually." He says. I nod and turn towards the tv. "Your 18, right?" He asks. I nod. He nods back and returns to his phone. It was a while and my phone buzzed. It was a text from Harry. It said, "leaving now:) can't wait to see you in a little bit" I smile and nudge Grayson who had fallen asleep. "What." He said with his eyes still closed. "Harry is on his way here." I say. He groans and rolls over. "Okay." He said. I roll my eyes and lean back and lay down. "Are you going back home tonight?" I ask. Grayson mumbles something. "What?" I say. He rolls over to uncover his face. "Yes. After I meet Harriet I'll go." He says and rolls back over. I laugh at him and cross my arms over my chest. I watch tv for a while then get up to fix myself a snack. I look in the pantry and see a box of Oreos, so I get the box and open it up. I look into the fridge and see two can of whipped cream. My eyes widen and immediately grab one and pop open the led. I squirt some in my mouth and open the box of Oreos. I get an Oreo out and take the top off. I was about to eat it when I though of an idea. I squired some of the whipped cream onto the Oreo and stuffed that in my mouth. "Mmmmmhmmm!" I laugh at myself. I make another one and almost put it in my mouth, but the door bell rang. I quickly stuff it into my mouth and chew quickly as I walk over to the door. When I swallowed, I look over at Grayson. "GRAYSON!" I yell. He jumps up and I turn around and open the door. A smily Harry is standing in front of me. "Hey, gorgeous." He says. I squeal and throw my arms around him. He laughs and gently picks me up. I wrap my legs around his waist. "I missed you." He said. "I missed you more." I said back, still in his arms. "Impossible." He said and lightly kissed me. I smile into the kiss and run my fingers through his hair. We pull away and he lets me down. He walks in and I close the door behind him. "So, uh, this is my brother. Grayson." I say. Grayson sleepily gets up and stands in front of Harry. It's almost like Grayson is my father who never likes the boyfriends. Grayson looks Harry up and down. "Hi, I'm Harry." Harry says and holds out his hand. Grayson looks at the hand them back at Harry. I see now, Grayson is trying to be tough. Harry awkwardly brings down his hand. "And I'm Grayson, Olivia's brother." Grayson finally said, with no smile. Harry gives me a confused look and I shake my head. Harry put an arm around my waist and looked back up at Grayson who is beginning to tense up. "Grayson, it's okay. Harry isn't like William." I say. Grayson perks up. "Oh yeah, and if you EVER, and I mean EVER, try to hurt my sister or even think to go and sleep with some other girl, I will hunt you down and physical kill you. MYSELF." Grayson says, right in Harry's face. Harry's eyes widen, looking a little scared. I nudge him and he looks at me. "He won't." I mouth to him. "Oh, but I will." Grayson says backing away from Harry. I roll my eyes. "Okay, Grayson. Don't need to be dad now." I say, pushing his stomach away from Harry. "Well I kinda have to be." Grayson says. I close my eyes. "Sorry, I just don't want him to be like William. And I don't want him to break your heart like he did." Grayson whispers. I smile a little. "Thank you." I whisper back. He smile and then clears his throat. "Sorry, Harry. I can get a little worked up when it comes to this kinda stuff." Grayson says. "I'm just wanna protect my baby sister." I look at him and smile a half smile. Harry smiles at the ground then looks back up at Grayson. He puts a hand on Grayson's shoulder and licks his upper lip. "Well, you don't have to do that anymore." Harry says. Grayson gives Harry a confused look. "Because I'm going to."
