7. Chapter Seven

Harry's P.O.V.

    Today really scared me. Everything that happened with Joe and Zoey was what I dreamed last night. After Zoey looked at her file we left. I brought her home and she put on her pajamas and got ready for bed. I went into her room to see if she wanted me to stay in her room or have her come to mine. After today, she is probably freaked out! "Zoey?" I said and knocked on her door. I heard a sniffle so I opened the door. She was sitting on her bed crying. "Zoey..." I said. She looked at me and then looked back down and cried more. I crawled in bed next to her and pulled her to me. "Zoey you're okay. I would never let anyone hurt you." I said. "I'm scared, Harry. I don't have parents to run to anymore. I'm alone in this." She said. "You have Louis and me." I said. She hugged me tighter. "Zoey, I'm always here for you." I said. She nodded. "Thank you, Harry." She said. "You're welcome." I replied.  "Do you want me to stay here with you tonight?" I asked. She nodded and laid down. I crawled up next to her and laid down next to her, pulling her closer to me. "Harry?" I heard her ask. "Yes?" I asked. "Do you think Louis will believe me?" she asked. "I don't know. But I do." I whispered. "What if he thinks I'm just some crazed fan trying to know you guys?" she asked. "I know you aren't," I said and kissed her cheek. She only looked uncertain and snuggled closer to me, burying her head in my chest. Something about her made me want to protect her. She means a lot to me, and I really want her to be mine. Louis just makes that impossible.

 

Zoey's P.O.V.

    I woke up to my ringtone blasting on the nightstand. Harry somehow slept through it. I looked at the caller ID; it was Louis. I took my phone and went into the hall.

(L- Louis, Z- Zoey)

Z- Louis?

L- Hey Zo. Hope you weren't sleeping. I just called to let you know my relative is better and I came home. I didn't know where you were because Harry wasn't in his room so I thought you might've gone somewhere.

Z- Oh, you're here now? *I was now panicking. What will he say about Harry in my room?*

L- Yeah!

Z- We're here. Harry is still sleeping.

L- Wait...but Harry- Please don't tell me he's in your room.

Z- I was scared. Something happened at the hospital and-

L- Why were you at the hospital?

Z- Um...I kind of know about my family.

L- You broke your promise? I trusted you, Zoey!

    I hung up and ran to find Louis. He was in the living room. He stood up and began to walk past me, but I stopped him. "Louis, please listen to me!" I begged. "I trusted you and you promised." he said disappointingly. "Louis, I couldn't stop wondering. Do you know what it's like to not know who your family is?" I said. "No, but Harry and I are your family. You're like my little sister, Zoey." he said. "Louis? About that..." I said. "What?" he asked. I stayed silent, thinking of how to tell him. "Fine. I get it. Just get your bags and I'll buy you a hotel room until you figure out what you're doing." he said. "Louis, please. Just listen-" he cut me off. "You lied to me! Why should I listen to you?" he yelled and started to walk around me. Hot, frustrated tears poured down my cheeks. "You should listen to me because you actually are my older brother, Louis!" I yelled back. He froze and turned. "What?" he asked. "You wonder why we are so well together and are like best friends who are never separated? You wonder why we look so alike?" I said. He was frowning in confused. "Louis, when is your birthday?" I asked. "December 24th." he whispered. "Yeah. Mine too. Because Louis, believe it or not, you're my older brother by three minutes." I whispered. He sat down and let what I told him sink in. "Wait. So we're twins?" he whispered to no one imparticular. "Yes, Louis. You're literally my older brother." I said. He smiled and stood up, but then the smile disappeared. "You're one of those crazy fans, aren't you?" he said, backing up. "What? No!" I said "You've always had blonde hair. Your birthday isn't December twenty-fourth. You just want me to think you're my younger sister because I'm Louis Tomlinson from One Direction." he said. "Louis! Do you hear yourself? Do you really think I would lie to you about this?" I said, shocked. "I have every reason to think you lied. You just lied to me recently." he said. "You know what Louis? You can just go die in a hole. I can't believe you!" I said and stormed off. My vision blurred as I walked up the stairs to my room. I ran into Harry when I opened the door. He opened his arms and hugged me tight. "I heard everything. Shh. It's okay." he whispered. "He doesn't believe me! I was scared he wouldn't before, but I actually thought he would when I told him!" I cried. He rubbed my back and comforted me for what seemed like forever, until Louis came in. He saw Harry hugging me. "What's this? I thought I told you to stay away, Harry!" he said. This got me furious. I turned around and slapped Louis across the face. "Who are you to tell Harry or me who we can and can't be with. Who are you to tell us what we can and can't do. And most of all, who are you to think I would do something so horrible to you?" I yelled in disgust. "You can leave." he said looking me straight in the eye. "I can't believe you don't believe me. I would never, ever do that to you Louis. How could you think that?" I cried as I pushed past him and ran out the front door without getting any of my things.

 

Harry's P.O.V.

    Zoey pushed past Louis and I heard the front door slam. "What in the bloody world is wrong with you?" I yelled and ran down the stairs to get Zoey. "Who are you? I don't even know who you are any more, Harry! I thought we were best friends!" Louis yelled after me. I turned around. "No, Louis. The real question is; Who are you? You really think Zoey would lie about something like that? Then get so upset when you don't believe her and give her permission to leave? What happened to you?" I said and left him to ponder over the sentences I just said.

    I ran outside. The wind blew in my face freezing my nose as I looked for any signs of a blonde-haired girl. She was no where to be seen. I noticed faint tracks in the snow. They were the only ones around, so they had to be hers. I had grabbed two jackets when I left. So when I find her she can have one. The footprints went way down the street until their wasn't anymore snow to leave them in. Great. I looked around and noticed a blonde girl entering Starbucks. I ran to catch up with her. All faces turned to me as I ran panting inside the shop. Including Zoey's. A second later everyone but Zoey turned away. I motioned for her to come over to me. She immediately went into my arms when she came. I led her over to a booth and sat down with her still tightly hugging me. We sat in silence as I stroked her hair and she snuggled to my chest.

 

Louis P.O.V.

    Harry left me with few sentences. He is right. She wouldn't be able to fake being so upset. I also think I overreacted about the whole hospital thing. I guess I am her older brother... I pulled out my phone to text Harry and find out where they are. He replied and told me they were at Starbucks. I grabbed my keys and drove silently down the road, wondering how this will go.
