9. 9. Rumors

I stood there completely shocked. Not only had someone just kissed me that was not my boyfriend but my boyfriend had been hiding in my wardrobe. This is something that seriously only happened in movies but for some odd reason it was happening to me.

"Louis," I took a step toward him but his eyes showed that he was hurt. "This is not what you are thinking."

"Maria who is that?" Reid asked putting a hand on my shoulder.

I shrugged him off knowing that this was looking worse and worse by the second. I only wish I could read Louis' mind so I would know exactly what he was thinking at this moment.

"I'm her boyfriend," Louis said going into defensive mode. "I think you should leave," his comment had a harsh tone to it and I had never heard him sound like this.

"I think you should leave man," Reid said taking a step forward.

"Whoa," I said stepping into the path of testosterone. "Reid, you do need to leave."

"Alright, but I'll see you tomorrow," he headed toward the door and Louis watched him leave. The comment made me roll my eyes and I knew this was not looking good for me at all.

Once the door shut I turned to look at Louis who was on his phone typing out a text to someone. I figured it was one of the boys and he was asking them to come get him. This was probably the night he envisioned but my first thought now was how did he get here?


"Maria," he said with a sigh. "I'm sorry. This is just a little too much."

"I have no interest in him," I was trying to keep my voice calm and not get defensive, a quality that is a little difficult for me at times. "He is nothing more than my lab partner."

"You brought him back to the room though," I could hear the pain in his voice.

My only thought right now was that Louis believed I was being unfaithful. With many experiences with having relationships where my partner was unfaithful I knew I would never do that to someone else. If you don't want to be in a relationship then just end it. Cheating is the worst thing you can do to someone.

"And usually Brianna and Emily are in the room. I was just giving him notes. Where his sudden feelings came from I do not know. I hardly know him Louis," again I was fighting the urge to get defensive. But the first sign of a cheater is automatically getting defensive.

"I just don't know," Louis finally looked up at me. "I texted Harry and Liam. They are on their way back to get me. I'm sorry this isn't how I wanted things to happen."

"Louis, tell me what you are thinking?" I took a step forward and he shuttered for a second.

"I don't know what I am thinking. I want to believe you didn't do anything wrong but," he trailed off and I could see the pain, hurt, and sadness welling up in his eyes. "Just tell me if this is too hard for you."

"Louis, no," I finally broke the barrier in between us and wrapped my arms around him. He hesistated before actually wrapping his arms around me. "I love you. I don't care how hard it is," I was whispering into his ear, "I would never do anything to intentially hurt you."

"I love you Maria," Louis' voice was edging back to normal. "I just wanted to spend a few hours with you. I was so excited when the boys told me. I just didn't expect that."

"Trust me, neither did I."

Laughing at me Louis said, "I don't like that guy though."

"I know you don't. I'll email my lab professor later to see if I can switch partners."

"I don't want to be that boyfriend that tries to control his girlfriend. I really don't. I just don't want this guy thinking that he can be with you. I love you and I don't care what it takes I will fight to keep you."

"You're the best," I kissed him quickly because his phone was ringing as well as mine.

"Odd," we said in unison as we both pulled out our phones.

My phone had Brianna across the screen and Louis' said Liam. We decided to play a joke on the two of them and switched phones.

"Hello Brianna," Louis said while I said hello to Liam.

Quickly we explained the situation. Louis apologized for assuming and everything was fine now. After only a few minutes of telling the recent events we hung up the phones.

"I'm sorry that I got jealous," Louis confessed looking down shyly.

"I'm glad you got jealous. Shows that you care."

"Yeah, you should be a little more jealous of all the screaming girls I deal with everyday."

"Ha ha. You know I can't compete with them."

"That is true."

"Wow, jerk."

"I love you."

"Yeah, I love you too. But you know all your directioners swear they love you more than me."

"That's impossible. I've missed you love," Louis said pulling me back into his arms. "We only have a few hours until they'll be back," he trailed off but stared into my eyes. His blue eyes were capitivating and I felt paralyzed. "I love you so much," he pulled me closer and bit my bottom lip.

"Louis," I said softly as pulled away. "Just one second," I mumbled as I walked over to the door. I made sure it was locked. Then I walked over to my iPod dock and turned on the music, and not to set the mood but simply to drown out anything that was bound to happen.


Saying goodbye is never easy especially to someone who you won't see for a long time. And, when you know you are madly in love with this someone. Emily, Harry, Brianna, and Liam had returned around midnight. We all sat up and talked to each other for two more hours before the boys had to leave. They were meeting Zayn and Niall back in NYC for a performance on The Today Show. Harry had been the one to spill the beans about Zayn and Perrie's engagement. Everyone was really excited for the two of them and everyone knew how much they loved each other.

Louis, Liam, and Harry left around two thirty in the morning and afterwards Emily, Brianna, and I ended up staying up for the rest of the night talking. Even though we had a class at 8:30 we were still determined to watch their performance and interview on The Today Show.

The boys were scheduled to perform at eight but for some reason it got pushed back until 8:30 and I was quite sad that I would be sitting in class learning about physics while Louis performed.

I watched the clock every minute. Checking constantly, which only made the time drag on and on. I didn't know why I was worried about the time anyway. I still had to go to Biology after Physics so it wasn't like I would be able to talk to Louis until after Biology anyway.

Luckily, Reid didn't show up for Physics so he didn't sit beside me. I didn't even want to see him anyway. After almost losing Louis last night I didn't want to see Reid for awhile. I knew it wouldn't exactly be a pleasant discussion.

Once Professor Robb released us from Physics I said bye to Brianna and Emily as they headed back to the room to try and sleep before their next class. I only had a few minutes to text Louis something while walking to Biology class.

I love you. And just know nobody will ever take my heart from you.

I turned off my phone simply because it was close to dying. I would have to charge it immediatly once I got to the room.

My Biology professor showed up late and I regretted not leaving my phone on but it didn't really matter. It would have died quickly anyway.

After only half the lecture Biology was released early. I was so thankful because I was close to falling asleep.

I started on the walk back to my dorm but was shocked to see Brianna and Emily standing right outside the building where my class was.

"Um, hi guys?" I questioned their being here.

"We have a problem," Brianna said scrolling on her phone.

"A big problem!" Emily sounded stunned.

"What is it?" I asked just as Brianna put her phone in my face.

Louis Tomlinson left devasted after break up with no time girlfriend Maria. After only a few months a close friend told Louis that Maria was cheating on him. Last night Louis went to confront Maria about the problem. Of course, Louis being the big hearted guy he is didn't want to believe it. But sources confirmed that Louis walked in on Maria and another one of her lovers.

When questioned about Maria on The Today Show this morning Louis seemed nervous. The interviewer asked, "Will you be forgiving Maria for her cheating? Or is this fling over?" Louis' face turned as red as his hair did for Red Nose Day 2013 and he walked off the stage leaving everyone wondering the truth. Bandmate Harry said, "Maria did not cheat on Louis and whoever has started this ridiculous rumor should be ashamed of themselves."

Harry followed Louis offstage after his comment leaving Zayn, Niall, and Liam to finish the interview.

"What the hell?" I screamed as I finished reading the article written about me.

"Wait," Brianna said taking her phone back and scrolling again. "Here's Twitter."

I looked at all the worldwide trends.

Larry Confirmed

"How?" ran through my mind but I said nothing.

Louis Deserves Better Than Maria

A pain so severe welled up in my chest. I felt like I couldn't breathe but then everything hit me at once.

"I need to call Louis!" I said pulling my phone out of my pocket and turning it on. "This is bullshit!"

As my phone took it's sweet time turning back on I wondered who would have started this ridiculous rumor. And how in the world had it spread so fast?

Only one name came into my mind. Only one person could be responsible for all of this. Only one person would want to hurt my relationship so I would be single.
