8. Secrets

Harry POV

I cant stop thinking about Lola. She is an amazing person, and to make things better, I think she is warming up to me. She seems to like hanging out with me, and she isn't afraid to ask me things (aka, the whole butt thing, man that was good). But I am a little concerned. It seems like Lou has a little thing for her too. When I was texting Lola goodnight, Louis saw it was her and begged for her number, so I gave it to him, trying not to be a jerk about it. I should let her make her own decisions when it comes to having her be with who she wants. I slept really good and I had a good dream about Lola, she wasn't being defensive and cocky, she was being sweet and I liked that. But I woke up to Niall waking me up, saying I had half an hour until we had class at 10:30. It was Music theory, so we had to help out, the class being among their music program. 

I throw on a t shirt and jeans and a blue beanie and grab a quick bite to eat. We are rushed as we are running late, it is 10:25 now and so we rush out of the building and to the music hall. I wish I could have at least seen Lola and said good morning. We rush into the classroom and the bell rings as Liam closes the door behind him.

"morning Lola!" I hear Louis say. I whirl around and see Lola and Madison sitting at a table together. 

"Morning Louis, How are you?" She asks, looking up at him.

"Doing well now that I can see your beautiful face," he says winking at her, making her blush. I make a gagging sound unconsciously. Oops.

"Jealous much Haz?" Lou says fake punching me.

"No, just too lovey dovey." I say.

"Really? Was that too lovey dovey Lo?" He asks.

"No it was just really cute." She says giving him a wink back smiling. I feel a little tension in my stomach. What is going on? I thought we were becoming closer, but it seems like she is getting closer with Louis. And Lou called her Lo.

"Earth to Harry. Are you ok?" Madison says. I look up and snap out of my unfocusness.  

"Yeah sorry, You were saying?" I say. 

"I said that you might want to go ask Ms. Jenson what to do, you are special helpers you know." She says. 

"Right thanks. And how are you doing? It seems like everyone is caught up in Lola." I say being considerate. 

"Haha Im good. Thanks." she says smiling. I just have to tell someone about how I kind of have feelings for Lola. Maybe I can tell Madison... I will after class. 

The boys and I go up to Ms. Jenson and ask what we can do to help. The class goes by fast and we get some things accomplished. We get syllabuses and other course requirements covered and began with some music history, kind of boring actually. Once the bell rings, Lou and Lola walk out together, leaving Madison. Perfect, time to tell her. 

"Hey! Madison! Lets walk together." I say approaching her.

"Ok?? Whats up Harry? Shouldnt you be going after Lola?" She asks. I am in utter shock. Is it that obvious?

"Excuse me?" I ask.

"C'mon Harry, its obvious you like her. So dont be coming after me. I got my eye on someone else." She says walking away.

"Wait! But, can I ask you something? Does she like Lou?" I ask.

"Well she did stay up late last night texting someone and she said it wasnt you, so..." she says. 

"Can you do me a favor? Can you not tell her that I like her? I just want her to be happy and I guess it is better if she doesnt know how I feel." I say. Madison nods.

"Yeah, your secret is safe with me. Go after her man. Chloe has her eye on Lou, lets have that happen for her. Lo is a little man whore if you know what I mean." She says. I give her an eyebrow raise at her selective language and go find Lou and Lola. Just can't let my feelings get in the way.


Lola's POV

Louis walked with me on the way back to the dorm. I stayed up later than I should have texting him, but he was also being more nice and caring than usual. I didnt mind the extra attention lately either. 

"So,did I mention you look very cute today?" He asks.

"Thanks Lou. You are too sweet. Can I ask you something?" I ask.

"Sure anything." he says.

"Why are you being so flirty and cute to me?" I ask.

"Why not? You are beautiful and cute, it kills me" he says winking and I blush.

" here's the thing. I really like you. You are funny, confident and not afraid to defend yourself and I like that about you. I feel like I've been hanging around you a lot and I like it. Would you want to go out with me?" Louis says. I am in complete shock. A superstar is asking me out. I cannot believe it.

" I would love to... "

" yes!-"

" but..."


" I don't know. It's just.... I shouldn't." I say

" it is because of Harry isn't it. I knew he liked you but when he really likes someone he has a hard time and doesn't want to say anything but he must have sensed something going on so he asked you out and-" he says but I cut him off

" what are you talking about? Harry and I are just friends and that's it. I'm just sayin no for a friends sake. Can you keep a secret?" I ask

" yeah anything." he says.

" Chloe likes you. We had a girls night and she said she kinda likes you but when she tries to talk to you, you come to me. I don't want to do that to her. I like you don't get me wrong. You are sweet and funny and a flirt, but I am going to say no right now." I say.

" Chloe?... Really... She is so quiet and sweet. I haven't seen her in a while. Maybe I'll talk to her. Ya know just to be friendly. But will you still be the same with me? No awkward feelings or interactions? I like us now, comical and flirty." he says winking at me.

" of course. I would like that a lot. And don't feel forced to do anything with Chloe. I just wanted to let you know. But you can't tell her." I say. He nods and smiles and looks as though as he is taking everything in. I wrap my arms around his neck and give him a hug and be hugs me back and kisses my hair.

" you do know that you are wonderful right?" he says to me. I smile and say thanks. Then we pull away and we hear footsteps behind us and I see Harry.

" sorry I'm not disrupting anything am I?" he asks slowing his pace.

" no not at all. I'm just going to see if I can find Chloe. Chit chat with her. Have you seen her?" Lou asks.

" she is in the business building Lou. Her class should be getting done with in a half hour." I say.

" ok thanks. See you two later" Lou says waking off.

" ok then. So how's it goin Lola?" Harry asks.

" actually pretty well. It is nice today. I don't have class until 4:00. Want to go get a bite to eat?" i ask.

" sure! I know this perfect cafe off campus down a ways that is worth it. Sound good?" he says.

" sure! Perfect. What about the paps though?" I ask.

" it will be fine, school friend, nothing else that is suspicious." he says.

" ok let's go" I say.

We walk a few blocks off campus and get stopped by a couple fans and then we finally make it to the cafe. Harry insists on buying and ordering so I let him. I sit at a table and wait for him to come sit by me and I check twitter. Nothing new in my boring American British life. Just some tweets from Macy and Lindsay on how they miss me. I miss them too. I forgot that I promised to call them and tell them that I met one direction. Putting that on the to do list.

" here is our food. This is so good i can assure you that you will love it" he says. I smile at how excited he is and he gives a little laugh back and smiles at me and our eyes lock for a few seconds until I break the connection and grab my food.

"you have pretty green eyes." he says.

" thanks as do you." I say. We eat and talk about our lives. I tell him some personal stuff like how I am afraid of being alone and never want to be abandoned by people I love like my parents, and how I am getting to like this place but still miss America. Harry tells me about his life too and how far he came and how his life wasn't perfect either. And he understands exactly on how I feel about being alone. Harry was a very good listener and was nice to talk to. I felt comfortable being with him and all and he showed interest and never looked bored. Then I saw the time. It was 3:30and class started at 4:00.

" crap I gotta go. Dang it Harry? Why do we have to leave? I like our friend talks." I say.

" wait we are friends now? Yes! Moved up a step from tolerable to friend. Woooo!! " he says celebrating and I laugh. We walk quickly back and I run up to my room to grab my things for computer art and design. Then I give Harry a quick hug goodbye and thank him for lunch and I rush off to CAD. Who knew that this was a nice day? It's nice to get closer with Harry. And to know that everything is good between Lou and I. I get a text from Harry as I walk into class. .

Harry: thanks for the idea of lunch it was fun. It was nice to get to know you better. Xx :)

me: same. It was nice. I'll see you later probably :)

then I remember Lou saying something about Harry earlier. I don't recall what he said, but I hope it wasn't super important. Louis would have elaborated more I bet. Oh well, maybe it was a secret that he almost blew. Maybe it is a good thing I can't remember. I don't know. The class gets started and I begin to immerse myself in the computer.
