"Where's Louis?" Harry looked around.
"He left early. Said he had some business to take care of before the show." Zayn answered when no one else would.
"Do you know what it is?" Kayla chimed in.
"That's all he told me." He shrugged his shoulders, which seemed to trigger a silence. It was quiet the rest of the way there. Once we got the stadium it was the usual though. As we walked in Kayla stood next to me.
"What are you doing? I'd imagine you're one who can take care of herself?" She smiled at the ground, her hair falling in her face. We walked in silence, but she stopped me at the door.
"I wanted to talk to you for a moment." I heard a noise behind me, but ignored it. She must've seen my expression change though. "What?"
"It's nothing." I turned to look, and nothing. "What if someone sees us?" I was looking at her, waiting for her to look at me. What did I say?
"That's what you're worried about? Someone putting pictures of us talking in a magazine? Liam we talk all the time. There's probably hundreds of pictures of us talking out there. If you want something to worry about, I'll give you something to worry about." She wrapped her arms around my neck and everything seemed to slow down except my heart. She smiled looking me right in the eyes. I was expecting to see tears, or her to be upset, but no she was happy. She was happy... Wasn't that our deal? My thoughts got interrupted by her lips. As soon as I realized what was going on I immediately joined in, bringing her body closer to mine. Soon she pulled away though. "No." She leaned against the wall, pushing her hair back. "No, no, no. This is wrong." Everything went quiet for a minute, right before I was going to say something the door flung open.
"Liam are you out here?" Zayn didn't even bother to look first. "Oh there you are mate. Come on Lou is waiting on you." He looked over next to him. "Hey Kayla. I'll see if she can wait another minute or two." He looked at both of us again before shutting the door, and he was probably walking down the hallway now shaking his head. I heard the door opening again, I looked up slowly.
"No, you aren't going anywhere." I pulled her back out by one arm.
"What is it Liam? I know it was my fault, but I don't want to do it again. It's not you I promise." She hugged me, I just hugged her tighter. I could smell her fruity shampoo. It was still the same one she used to use. The scent made some of the best memories come back to me.
"Then what is it? What are you not telling me?" I had begun to tear up and not even realized it.
"Are you ok?" I stayed silent waiting for an answer to my question. "I don't want to talk about it here." She tried opening the door, but I slammed it shut.
"I bet that's always your excuse. Well I'm not taking it, you're telling me now." I crossed my arms as I leaned against the door. I waited for an answer, nothing. A bang on the door came. "What is it?" I jerked it open to see Harry.
"Lou is waiting on you. We have 15 minutes. And have you seen Louis? He disappeared after Lou did his hair." Harry tried to act happy to see me, for some reason I don't think he was. Harry waved at Kayla. She waved back, I think she wanted him to plead us so she wouldn't have to talk.
"No I haven't. Sorry. I promise I'll be there in there in two minutes, ok five minutes. I promise five minutes." He stood there waiting. "Harry, I promise, please." He waved his hand at us, then walked away. "Thank you." I slammed the door shut, then turned and smiled at her. "Sorry love..." She looked very, very mad, but I just kept smiling. "Now are you going to tell me before times up, or are you gonna tell me in front of all those people in there, our management, the boys, the cameras-"
"Ok Liam I get it!" Oh this felt good. "And what are you talking about cameras?" She cocked her head just slightly, if you weren't watching her you probably wouldn't even be able to tell.
"You didn't hear? The first show was being filmed for the DVD so it can be released sooner. You can be on it sweetheart, you can be famous. Isn't that what you always wanted?" I should quit this and become evil. Everyone already hates me except for Zayn.
"For one, don't call me sweetheart. Two, I don't know what has gotten into you, but oh need to stop it. Three, get out of my way because with you acting like this I'm not telling anybody anything tonight." She tried to shove by me. "Liam please don't do this." She tried pushing me one more time. This time she just stayed against me, it was calming me down some. I could feel my shirt starting to get wet.
"Don't cry." She backed away wiping her eyes. This time you could tell she had been crying.
"What do you care Liam? You're just the big bad bully who wants to know my deep dark secret. You really think I want to be famous? If I wanted to be famous, I could be right now. Any second I could turn myself from a nobody to somebody, but that's not what I want. I want happiness, and it looks like I can't find it with you anymore." She wiped her eyes again, the sniffles were still frequent, I think I was going to cry. I think she wanted to go inside, just leave me out here to die, and I wanted her to. "So when you decide that happiness is important to you too, then you can come talk to me." This time I let her walk past me. I heard the door squeak open, then gently shut.
"When will I ever get it right?" I slammed my head against the wall.
"I was about to ask you the same question?" I know that voice. I turned around and it really was her.
"Dani what are you doing here?"
"How about we talk after the show? I think you've got somewhere you need to be." She pointed over to Zayn standing at the door. I went to walk away, but she called me back. "I have something for you. Don't look at them yet." I stuck them in my back pocket, she smiled and walked away.
"What was she doing here?" Zayn asked as I walked with him, well ran.
"I have no idea, but she said she wanted to talk to me after the show." We made it to Lou's room. I sat in her chair, and she immediately started working on me. Zayn stood waiting impatiently.
"I don't know Liam. Something just doesn't seem right."
