24. Matt, a friend
Niall came back to Harry, but sat with a space between them. Matt talked on and didn't notice that the Irishman seemed angry. Harry immediately noticed it and looked on the boyfriend.
Niall looked at him coldly and swallowed. He then gave Matt a quick glance,
"Can you leave us alone?"
Matt was surprised, but nodded. He went over to the other and seemed to wonder what had happened. Harry wondered same.
"What is it?"
Niall took a deep breath.
"So you are telling everyone that I was homeless, then you say to others that you saved me and it's thanks to you that I am alive?"
Harry shook directly on the head.
"I haven't told a single person about that?"
Niall looked at him coldly.
"You're lying, because Louis had a lot to tell. He knows everything and he said that you tell it to everyone?"
Harry realized that he should have warned Niall. So Louis had really planned to try to split them?
"Niall, believe me when I say that only he knows. I happened to tell a little about you that night when you went to bed. It was more in the conversation and there was nothing negative."
Niall didn't believe him.
"I don't trust you. Why is it so important that others know about my past? Would you think they'll look down on me and not like me or is it because you want other to like you?"
Harry shook his head and tried to get his arms around Nialls body, but he backed away.
"But how can I trust you?"
Harry gulped and looked at Matt's direction.
"Ask him, if I want to tell everyone I should have told Matt?"
Niall looked over at the new friend and hesitated. Yet he went on and went over to him. Harry saw how Matt listened, responded and talked to him. Then looked Harry over to Louis and this time he was scared. Louis sat with a goofy smile and seemed as happy as he could be. He looked at Harry and seemed to think that he had already won. Harry immediately became so angry and he went straight over to Louis.
"You fucking liar!"
"What have I lied about? That you told me or what?"
Harry was close to slugging him, but Matt came between them. He pulled him away immediately and looked straight into his eyes.
"He's not worth it!"
Harry didn't let Louis with his eyes.
"He's a fucking idiot and I feel that I can beat some sense into him."
Matt shook his head and hugged Harry tightly, so that he couldn't do anything.
"Let him be. Niall trust you!"
Harry was about to start crying.
"No, he thinks I say things to all you others about him."
Harry responded and turned his head. Niall stood there and he looked generally sad.
Matt smiled weakly and released Harry.
"I told him that you love him and all you said to me. I don't know what it was that Louis thought, but I see that you belong together."
Niall scraped a little with his foot in the ground.
Harry calmed down and threw himself over Niall.
"Please never do that again."
Matt picked up their bags and let them stay in his house instead. Louis at first refused to let Matt in to get the bags, but eventually he gave up. Niall puffed out and hugged Harry tightly.
"Why didn't you tell me that he wanted me?"
"I didn't dare."
Niall kissed him quickly.
"You can tell me everything."
Matt showed them to a luxurious bedroom and Niall was about to faint.
"This is the guest room?"
Matt laughed and nodded.
"I'm rich and I believe that even guests must stay in a good place."
Harry laughed a little bit and looked at Niall.
"You're not used to much?"
Niall shook his head and threw himself across the bed. He lay down on his back with his arms and legs outstretched.
"It's a mirror on the ceiling?"
Matt nodded immediately and understood that Niall was the one who hadn't seen much of the world.
"Yes, that's how I like it and you can see what happens in the bed all the time."
Niall blushed immediately and looked towards them.
Harry laughed and walked over to the bed. He looked up at the ceiling and realized that you could really see your partner when, for example, you had sex.
Matt put down the bags on the floor.
"You can take a shower and do whatever you want in here. I'll go to bed and I sleep in a bedroom farther away. I will not hear what's happening here."
