Just The Help ( Louis Tomlinson )

Have you ever loved someone? Wait, let me rephrase that! Have you ever loved someone but can't be with them? I do. And do you get that gut wrenching feeling whenever you remind yourself you can never have them? I do, when ever I look at her. Whenever I see her hazel eyes, her light black waves that cascade to the middle of her back, the way she moves, the way she speaks. Her name is Sienna, Princess Sienna to be exact! And the reason I can't be with her? Well I'm Louis Tomlinson and I'm her guard.I'm just the help. One whom she could never love....

Chapter Song: Secrets by The Pierces

Louis POV

I walk back to my room to find Harry stripped out of his costume.

He lays on the bed with his hand on his head like he just suffered a horrible migraine.

“Mate?” I say.

He sits up surprise by me and I can see a little bit of grief. He calms once he see me though. “Oh, hey Lou.”

“You okay?”

He sits on the edge of the bed and rubs his face into the heels of his palms. “Yeah. W-Why wouldn’t I be?”

I sit on the edge of my bed as well and examine him. “Mate, what happened? I know there’s something on your mind.”

He looks up at me and says, “Actually there is.”

“Harry!” I hear Iris say from the doorway.

She looks the same as Harry, her hair a bit messier than usual. She looks from me to Harry.

“Won’t you help me with dinner?” she says putting on a fake smile raising her eyebrow. He obeys and walks out of the room.

What was that?

I tip-toe to the door and open it up just a little bit, barely a crevice.

I hear whispering back and forth between the two of them. Small things at first like “Can’t I jus-“ and “But-“ which usualy get cut off with her saying “No” .

“He’s my best mate. I will go crazy if I don’t tell him. I’m going crazy as is. I can only talk to you about it and barely.” I hear him say.

“Harry, I know. How do you think I feel, Princess Sienna literally tells me everything that happens with her and now I’m supposed to not tell her this. And this applies to her more than any of us.” I see her move over to get a glass of water and Harry follows. “I mean it’s different with us. To us she’s just our queen. To the Princess,” she stops and takes a breath in.

“To Sienna, it’s her mother. How am I supposed to keep this from her?”

With that I walk back to the bed and lay down.

What’s wrong with the queen? Is she sick? She has to be ill of some sort. Why would they be talking about her in such a horrific manner? Like she just killed the whole kingdom.

I decide to take a walk through the corridors. Just down the west wing, near the courtyard and the stables.

I hear some humming coming from the stables, “Oh The wasted years. The wasted youth. The pretty lies. The ugly truth. And the day has come where I have died, only to find, I've come alive.” I hear the voice sing.

It was actually quite beautiful. Maybe it was Sienna, did she sneak out of her bedroom?

I mean there aren’t many women in the castle except for maids and from what I know they are all in their rooms or the kitchen.

I head towards the stables and look on inside.

First I saw her black boots, then her tan riding pants along with a shirt made for a male but tucked deep in the top of her pants.

This definitely wasn’t Sienna.

I finally got up to green cat eyes and wild red curls. I take a step and a branch snaps.

“Shit.” I whisper.

The horses neigh and the girl hushes them.

“Hello?” she says in a thick Irish accent.

I stay silent hoping she would just forget about it.

“I know someone’s there just come out.” She says.

I sigh and step into the stables. “Are you aloud to be in here?” I say to her immediately.

She coughs and looks at the white horse in front of her. “I’m…….actually……the new stables girl.Yeah, I just started to today.” She says looking back at me.

My eyes connect with hers. Her long red lashes blink up and down as I examine her in full. “They allow women to work the stables?”

She looked taken back and said "They let lanky men work as knights?"

I raise my eyebrow and say "I'm actually a guard."

"Even better." she whispers. "Listen I would to stay here and chat but I must take Pearl out for a ride. She's been antsy all day, so has been Ares." she points to the brown horse behind her. "So I really don't have much time."

She puts the saddle on the horse and gets herself ready.

She's kind of rude but determined. She seems a but sure of herself too.

Why do I feel like I should help her by taking Ares out? Should I, I mean she was rather rude to me. Yet, I did start it by sizing her down.

Before I could come to a conclusion I say, "Do you want me to help you with Ares?"

She turns towards me, confusion in her face with a hint of surprise.

She abhorrently nods "Sure. Just uh tack up the horse before you go....or do you want me to wait?" she says sarcastically.

I smirk and say "Well I wouldn't want a lovely lady to go out there by herself now would I?"

She chuckles at my statement and helps me with the horse.

"So what's your name?" I ask her.

She brushes Ares hair back a little bit and strokes the mane. "

I'm Annalise Connolly. You can call me Anna though. I prefer it." she smiles. "And yours?"

"I'm Louis Tomlinson. Just Louis though. I prefer it." I mimic.

She laughs and nods her head. "Nice to meet you Louis." I smile widely at her.

Something about the way she says my name makes me feel warm.

Maybe it's just the accent. "It's nice to meet you too Anna."

After we rode Ares and Pearl for a little bit just talking, I got to know the mysterious voice.

This reminds me, “Hey, I heard you before.” I say once we get back into the stables.

She furrows her brow and looks at me questionably. “While you were singing.”

She blushes and looks down at her boots. “It’s the reason I entered and found you here. It was a lovely melody, did you write it?” I ask.

“Yes, actually I did.”

“The lyrics seemed…..seemed….a-as if you were hurt.” I say to her.

“Well, it was written off of experience.” She explains while stroking Ares mane.

“It must have hurt you so much.”

She nods and presses her cheek to Ares. I watch Anna as she takes a deep breath in. “I’m sorry if it has upset you.” I say.

She looks up and shakes her head. “Not at all.”

She puts Pearl in her stall and walks me to the front where she locks up.

“I had a very fun evening Louis.” She smiles.

I smile as well and say, “So did I. You looked like you needed a proper smile.” I say.

She laughs and we stand there for a few more seconds. I don’t know what’s drawing me to feel this, but I have a feeling that I need to do something else.

Before I could think of it I feel soft lips on mine. I open my eyes to see Anna kissing me. Before I pull away I find myself getting lost and kiss her back. Her fingers entangle with my hair as I press her lower back with my left hand pulling her closer while the other is wrapped around her neck. Our moans fill the air and all I feel is pure ecstasy. Her hands are met with my chest pushing me back. She turns around and touches her lips mumbling something. “I-I’m sorry.” She says before walking away. “Anna.” I call but she just turns away.

“Louis!” I hear. Fingers are being snapped in my face as I see Anna standing in front of me once again as if nothing has changed.

“I said I’m going to bed. I’ll see you around yea?” I nod. “Yea.”

We go our separate ways and I am left utterly confused.

Did I just fantasized about me and Anna?

A girl I met not an hour ago.

No doubt she was enchanting but I love Sienna.

I walk into my bedroom, still thinking hard. Harry was in his bed looking up at the ceiling again.

I found myself doing the same.

“What’s wrong Lou?” I hear Harry.

I shake my head and say, “I have no idea.”

I truly didn’t. I mean I do love Sienna.

Don’t I?


I know that she didn’t write the song. Anna was singing Teen Idle by Marina & the Diamonds. I absolutely love her to death! I hope you guys like all the rising action there is so much more to come. Now I guess you know why I had bring Niall’s story into this. Well, night all! Love you loveleys!
