One Month

Liam and Danielle broke up -- Again. Management doesn't want the media to give Liam a bad image, so they set him up with an actress. They have no idea what they both signed up for. Once they meet face to face, they realized that they already dated. They both want out, but management has them stay together for at least a month; then, if they don't like it, they can split. But a split for another couple might come early.

~Louis' POV~


She was happy whe she told me that she loves me, she was genuinely happy and so was I. I have loved her since we first met at Modest! Headquarters, in all honesty. She was funny, kind, smart, and really hot. She was the girl version of me, basically. We were a match made in heaven and I couldn't let her slip away from me just because management told her what she had to be with Liam.

I slipped something in her drink that night, when she was catching up with Liam. Liam, being the honest, innocent, and precious one of the group, didn't take to kindly to this and needed me to "stop cheating on Eleanor". Nothing mattered at that moment though, and Jennifer had already finished off her drink before Liam could do anything about it.

Liam didn't want to watch me take advantage of a drunk girl that was suppose to be his childhood best friend, but he left he in a time of need. I was there for her though, so I swooped in to her rescue. My little secret from that night though, in all honesty, is that wasn't that drunk. I knew exactly what I was doing, and so did everyone else, except Eleanor.

Though nothing had made me feel guilty, I loved El and all but our relationship had started when Larry really got out of hand. Modest! wanted me to have a girlfriend so I could confirm that I was straight, though our adoring fans seem to believe that Harry and I share a relationship together, I am straight.

Eleanor and I are just like Jen and Liam, is what I'm basically trying to say. I don't love my so-called girlfriend that was hired by Modest! to stop drama, same as Liam, but I loved Jennifer unlike him. I deserved her, I didn't care how long she's known Liam, I never lied to her. She stormed off before I could try and save her from crying, I was too late.

I mentally threw daggers at Harry as he was still rubbing his shoulder from where Niall hit him on the arm, which he fully deserved, "You had to talk?" I sighed, angrily.

Harry mouthed a "what" at Niall and we both shoved passed him to tell Liam. It might have not been the best idea, but it was the only idea that we had at the moment. Harry followed us in shortly afterwards, but kept his distance from us, in fear of being smacked again.

No one else wanted to tell him, out of the three of us, so I chose to speak, "Liam," I cleared my throat, making him turn away from his conversation with Zayn, "Jennifer knows."

Liam understood what I meant, but he wasn't angry, he actually looked relieved, "How did she find out, though?"

Niall and I took a moment to stare at Harry with an annoyed look, "It was an accident in the hallway just now, I didn't mean to!"

"Wait, she's here?!" Liam's face perked up, with glossed eyes.

I took a deep breath, "Yeah, but it was supposed to be a surprise." We shook our head's at Harry's errors, but didn't show anger towards the youngest of the group.

"Do you know what room?" Liam asked, hopeful.

I mumbled, "Next door, but I don't think she wants to speak to anyone. She started crying and locked herself inside. Eleanor is with her, unfortunately."

He didn't listen to me and instead barged out of our room and knocked on their door softly. The boys and I followed him once the door to the next room over was opened up, with a surprised look on Eleanor's face. Once she saw me at the end of the line of boys, her face filled with sadness.

Her voice was quiet, but cracked lightly, "Can I speak to you?" She had sounded like she'd been crying.

"Yeah, babe, sure." I led her into the hallway and she slapped my face, hard.

"How could you?" She suppressed her tears by adding pressure on her tear ducts.

I held my cheek, softly rubbing it, "I was going to tell you."

"When? When their deal was over so you could just be with her freely? You didn't have to lie, at least she didn't lie to me, ad I barely even know her." Eleanor let the tears stream down her face freely as she left the hallway.

I wanted so badly to tell her I didn't mean a thing I ever did to her wrong, but then I'd just be lying again, "Are we breaking up?" I shouted to her, she didn't use her voice to answer me. She only nodded her head once, letting me know it was a no.

I thought our break-up would have been more dramatic and more heartbreaking, but it didn't. I didn't feel empty inside at all, not how someone should feel after a break-up at least. I joined the other boys who had been thrown out of the room while Liam and Jennifer spoke. I had hoped that, deep down in my heart, they would break up.

They stayed in the bedroom for quite a while, it started to make me worry about what they were discussing in the other room and I couldn't shake the feeling of her kiss from me. It was warm and pure and loving, it made me feel like we came together as one for just a moment, then it was gone.

Eleanor wouldn't look at me, it's not like I cared anyways, but I genuinely felt bad for her. I should have been the one to tell her instead of Jennifer. Jennifer did the right thing by telling her though, so we could finally stop lying and just be together. We belonged together, Jen and I.

We heard the door from the other room open and swiveled each of our heads around to see who came out of the room; both of them, hand in hand.

"We've made up." Liam smiled warmly at Jennifer, but the look in her eyes showed guilt and mine showered with hurt.


~Jennifer's POV~


Liam came into my room after I had finished crying, but seeing his face wanted me to cry again. My eyes swelled back up with tears as he tried to hush my whines, begging me to listen to him. I agreed because I didn't have much of a choice and that he wouldn't take no as an answer.

"I did it to protect you. Louis has a bad habit of breaking girls' hearts and cheating, though he seems like a completely different guy. I didn't want you to get hurt by him, I was looking out for you." He tried to explain, but it just wasn't making sense.

Absolutely nothing made sense in my life anyways, so why should I care about sense now? I thought about what I had to say before responding. Louis didn't seem to play the part of the heart breaker, because, looking at it now, he treated em better than Liam did.

"Louis isn't like that, but I guess you are. You practically used me to stop me from getting what I think I wanted all along. He loves me, I know that, and you can't change my mind about him." I fumed. Liam tried to get me to calm down, but I didn't want to listen to this liar anymore.

My body was still in fetal position from when I had been crying, but it ached when I tried to move. Once I could feel my boy again, I tried standing up, but my attempt failed. I stood up straight the second time and tried to get out of the room, but he grabbed my arm with a tight grip

"Believe me, I've known him longer than you have. Don't go to him, please. The month is almost over, and you promised me that long. You at least owe me one more week." He pleaded like a puppy about to be lost without me.

I didn't want to cave in, I didn't want to hurt Louis like he hurt me that first day we met, but things just happen and Liam was right. I promised him a month, I promised him four weeks of a relationship and we shook on it.

I let out a deep sigh because I knew Louis would never forgive me for my next choice, "Fine."

I took a deep breath before walking out of the room and Liam took my hand in his. I didn't want to see Louis face, but we needed to tell everyone that we had to stay a couple. We walked out and I kept my eyes on Louis the entire time, but he didn't look to me until Liam announced to everyone that we've made up.

He was hurt so badly. I just wanted to run over to him and kiss him, telling him that everything was going to end up the way he wants it to. His eyes pierced through mine with the hurt that I caused him just because of a stupid deal with Modest!

Everyone else stared at us in shock, from what I saw in the corner of my eyes, but I stared straight at Louis for the remainder of the minutes before their show tonight, Which Eleanor and I were going to be attending.

Eleanor wanted to stay at the hotel, and I couldn't blame her, but Modest! didn't fly her overseas for nothing. She had to get ready just like me and watch another performance done by the boys. I didn't know why we still had to show up, considering we've been to many concerts in their tour, but we went with what Modest! said and didn't talk back.

I didn't pay attention to the concert, in all honesty, because I couldn't stand to see the faces of the two boys I loved the most with one being hurt and the other being a deceiver. I doubt that Eleanor wanted to see the face of her ex-boyfriend, either. So I took her hand and pulled her towards the boys' dressing room, where we didn't have to see the show or even hear it for that matter.

She hadn't been fazed by the movement I caused in her body, she just slumped down on a lounge chair and started bawling all over again. I tried to comfort her, but she just increase the volume of her sobs into the shoulder of my jacket.

I didn't blame her for crying because shortly after she started, I followed after. My cries weren't loud enough for her to hear, but tears were falling just as much down my face. I didn't want any of this to happen. I wish I could just take it all back, I wish I didn't go see Modest! that day, and I wished so badly that Liam and Danielle hadn't broken up.

And then, she was here in the dressing room with us. The girl who I have seen so many photos of, though she looked much prettier in person. Danielle.
