Anna Lee's POV
"What's the matter?" He asked. I bit my lip and looked down.
Anna Lee's POV
"I --- I can't look you in the eyes Lou." I whispered. His eyebrows furrowed in confusion.
"Because of Dad." I said quietly.
"Oh." He simply stated, pursing his lips together.
"Any time that I look him in the eyes... He.... He would.... Hurt me." I continued, choking on the last few words. I looked down at my fingers and Louis tilted my chin up. I looked him in the eyes, wincing.
"I will never ever hurt you Anna Nanna Banana Lee."
She was scared of me. Louis! Her own brother. Pshaw, like I would ever hurt a pigeon. Except that one time when Kevin fell.
NO! Don't think about the worst day of my life! UGH!
I looked down at Anna Lee to see that she was asleep. I laid her down in the bed and kissed her forehead. Why was she crying again?
The memory came back to me and I clenched my fist.
He is going to get it.
I made my way downstairs into the kitchen. Niall was in there, stuffing his face with food, as usual. He froze when he saw me.
"You alright dude?" He said uncertainly.
"Where's Harry." I growled. His eyes widened.
"He's busy right now." He replied blocking my path. I tried to shove him out of the way. "LIAM! ZAYN!" He yelled. The two of them ran into the kitchen a few seconds later.
"Where. Is. Harry." I asked.
I have never seen so much anger in Lou's eyes before. Harry did explain that he didn't mean to force himself on her. He's been watching TV for the past few hours, trying to get his mind off of things.
Louis' fierce eyes made a hole in me.
"Living room." I said cracking. Liam and Niall shot me death glares as Louis ran out of the room with his fists clenched. Niall started to run after him.
"Don't just stand there!" He screamed over his shoulder. Liam and I were quick to agree and we ran after Niall into the living room. Louis and Harry stood staring at each other.
"YOU HURT HER HARRY!" Louis screamed. Harry winced.
"I didn't mean to. I'm sorry Lou."
"SORRY WON'T CUT IT HARRY!" Louis shouted back.
"Give me a chance..."
"Boobear, your my best friend!" Harry yelled.
"Not after that you aren't." Louis said seriously before exiting the room. Tears leaked out of the edges of Harry's eyes.
"What the heck happened to bros before hoes?" Louis shouted from his room. A loud crash followed.
"Where the heck did sisters before BEST FRIENDS COME FROM!" Harry yelled back.
"Liam, go to Lou and calm him down. Niall do the same for Harry. I'm going to check on Anna Lee." I said sternly and then heading up the stairs two at a time. When I got to Anna Lee's door, I hesitated before slowly opening it. She was lying on her bed and staring at the ceiling. I slowly shut the door behind me and made my way over to her bed.
"You okay?" I asked quietly.
"Not really." She answered honestly. I chuckled and sat on the edge of her bed.
"What's the matter?"
"Everything." She replied.
"EVERYTHING ZAYN!" She shouted. "DO YOU REALIZE HOW SCREWED UP MY LIFE IS? ABUSIVE FATHER, LONG LOST BROTHER, BOY WHO TRIES TO MAKE OUT WITH ME AND I'VE ONLY KNOWN HIM FOR A FEW DAYS. NOT TO MENTION OLIVER! FOUND OUT ABOUT!" With that she bursted into tears. I let her cry and enveloped her into my chest.
"It's okay." I said rubbing her back. A few minutes later, the tears started to slow down. A laugh escaped Anna Lee's mouth.
"I've cried the past few days more than I have in my entire life!" She joked. I chuckled.
"It's not a bad thing to cry." I stated. She pursed her lips together.
"Crying is a sign of weakness."
"Sometimes you are weak." I pointed out. She sighed.
"I know but I hate to feel hopeless. I am hopeless Dad called me that all the time." She muttered the last part. It took a second for it to click. I snapped my head towards her and tilted her chin up so she could look me in the eyes.
"You are not hopeless." I said. "Don't ever say that you are. I know I've only known your for a few days, but you are one of the most amazing people I have ever met." She smiled up at me.
"Thanks Zayn." She whispered.
"No problem babe." I replied. Suddenly a loud crashing noise came from the other room. Anna Lee raised an eyebrow at me.
"Uh, Hi?" I said.
"What was that?" She asked.
"I don't know." I replied honestly. Another crash sounded through the house and we heard shouts.
"I'll be right back." I declared, running out of her room. I ran down the hallway to see where the crashes came from. Louis was screaming at the top of his lungs. Liam was begging him to calm down.
"Lou, it's all right." I said. "Anna Lee is fine. Do you want to go check on her?"
"YOU WERE COMFORTING ANNA LEE?" He screamed back. "I KNEW IT ZAYN. YOU LIKE HER TOO! DO YOU KNOW HOW SHAMEFUL THAT IS?! YOU HAVE A FREAKING GIRLFRIEND!"
I froze. Did I like Anna Lee? No, I couldn't. I have Perrie. I love Perrie. Right?
"I thought so." Louis whispered. "Please leave me alone guys. I need some time." We nodded and walked out of the door. Liam raised an eyebrow at me.
"So.... Anna Lee?" He said. I shrugged nervously.
"I guess... I love Perrie but there's just something about Anna Lee." I replied. He nodded.
"I get that."
"I'm turning in early, Liam. Goodnight."
Zayn decided to go to bed so I went into Anna Lee's room. She was on the computer, hitting the keys on the keyboard really hard. She sighed in frustration and I chuckled. Spinning around in her desk chair to face me, she smiled. I could see where the tears had been on her face and her eyes were puffy and red.
"Hey Liam!" Anna Lee shouted brightly. I grinned at her.
"Hey Anna Lee!" I mocked her. She giggled.
"Can you help me with this... Thing?" She asked gesturing towards the computer. I laughed.
"The computer?" I replied. She blushed.
"Um, yeah. That."
"Sure!" I said. I helped her set up a twitter and activated it on her phone. @Anna_Lee_Tommo
"This is awesome!" She exclaimed. I quickly found her on my phone and followed her.
"Is that you?" She asked pointing to the screen. I nodded. She clicked on my username and then followed me back. I showed her Louis' the rest of the boys usernames. Niall instantly followed her back. She refreshed her page and gasped when she saw her followers were now over 1,000.
"What happened?" She asked. I grinned at her.
"We have fans." I replied.
"Oh." She said giggling. "I forgot you guys are famous. Which I'm still finding pretty weird, by the way." I laughed.
"You'll get used to it. After all, you are Louis Tomlinson's sister."
"Yeah, I guess so." She said, sighing.
"Do you want to watch a movie?" I asked. She shrugged.
"Okay. What movie?"
"TOY STORY!" I yelped before putting a hand over my mouth. She looked at me confusedly.
"What's Toy Story?" She asked puzzled. My mouth dropped open.
"You were deprived." I replied, jumping on her bed and turning the TV onto Netflix. She hopped on the bed next to me and we got under the covers, falling asleep watching my favorite Disney movie of all time.
