What He Doesn't Know

Audrey was Liam's best friend. His protector. His "sister". His bodygaurd. And he was hers. They did everything together. Until the ninth grade. They drifted apart, found new friends. But, they haven't talked since. Until now. 7 years later. A lot can happen in 7 years. Scars can emerge, tears can be shed, memories can develop. But it's worse for all when the only one you love has no idea what you've been through.


6. Fame

Audrey's POV:


A giant chicken. To be more specific, the Nando's chicken. I smile and twist my head up tilting it to see Liam. He's grinning. "Of course! Nando's! My favorite!" He absolutely beams at this and grabs my hand. He drags me to the hostess stand. The hostess says in a monotone, staring at the stand, "Hello. Welcome to Nando's. How many?" Liam speaks for the two of us "Table for two, please." At this, the hostess's head shoots up and her jaw drops. I stand there awkwardly as she fumbles for words. "Liam- One- oh my gosh- Direction- Payne- ahhhh- Liam Payne." Liam lets go of my hand and shushes her. "Quiet, Kaitlyn, where are we sitting?" motioning towards me. How does he know her name? She looks over at me confused and guides us to our table. Liam takes my hand and she takes his other and drags us away. 

Once she seats us, she is still holding his hand. She holds on far too long and he shakes her off. He signs a napkin for her and shoos her away. I nervously laugh. I've never witnessed that before. "Does that happen a lot?"

"Yup, but she must have been a huge fan because she recognized my voice."

I sympathize, "That must get annoying,"

"You get used to it." He retorts, harshly. 

I fall silent. I've never seen this side of Liam. Is this what fame has changed him into? He looks up with sad eyes, "I'm sorry," he apologizes. "It's ok."

At this, a new waiter comes by our table to take our orders. I order a 1/4 chicken, I'm not that hungry. However, Liam orders so much food to even remember! He can't possibly eat that much. Perhaps he eats a lot? This waiter doesn't seem to know who Liam is and even if he does, he hides it well. Once this waiter leaves. we face each other, finally alone.


Liam's POV:



She tilts her head back and grins at me. "Nando's! Of course! Nando's, my favorite!" She coos making me beam. I got it right! I'm excited now and I grab her hand. I drag her to the hostess stand, taking off my aviators. As I tuck them in my pocket, the hostess mumbles "Hello. Welcome to Nando's. How many?" I reply "Table for two, please." At this, her head shoots up and her jaw drops. Oh no, she recognized my voice. "Liam- One- oh my gosh- Direction- Payne- ahhhh- Liam Payne!" She's about to blow our cover so I take my hand away from Audrey's, who is standing there dumbstruck, and put it up to her lips. I quickly read her name tag and say "Quiet, Kaitlyn, where are we sitting?" Shes grinning, yet quiet, and still she looks confused by Audrey. She grabs two menus and tightens her grip on my hand. I lace my fingers into Audrey's as I'm pulled towards the table.

Once we are seated, Kaitlyn is still holding on to me. I shake her off and I sign a napkin for her. I shoo her away. Audrey nervously laughs. I'd forgotten, she's not used to this. "Does that happen a lot?" 

"Yup," I reply "but she must have been a huge fan she only recognized me from my voice."

"That must get annoying," she sympathizes.

"You get used to it." I snap. Everyone always thinks all the support is annoying, and yes sometimes it can be. But it is touching honestly. Our Directioners love us so much that they can simply recognize us from our voices. It's amazing how much they care. She's silent. That might have been a bit harsh, I apologize. "I'm sorry."

A new waiter comes by and takes our orders. Audrey orders simply a 1/4 chicken. I'm confused. Usually she would order more. But if she isn't, I'll compensate. I order 10 chicken wings, a salad for two, and a 1/4 chicken for me. I can tell she realizes I'm not going to eat this all. Of course not! It's to share! Once the waiter leaves, we look at each other, alone at last
