I Won't Speak

A suitcase. A mystery. A popstar. A selective mute. And a friendship everlasting.

17. Chapter Seventeen: Now or Later?- A Knockoff Brand of the Candy

"Now." 

"Later." 

"Now!"

"Later!"

"No! Louis, we have to do it now. You know as well as I do that management and security and the fans..."

"We could- we could lie, I guess." I said, rubbing the back of my neck.

A loud cheer shouted from the TV area; Liam and Niall were both trying to teach Lynn how to play Mario Kart. I looked over and saw Liam and Niall hugging Lynn.

Harry bit his lip. "I dunno, Lou. It doesn't feel right, lying to all of our fans about Lynn. We could just tell them, or they'll just be left confused. Why don't we just TELL THEM AT THE CONCERT?" He stood up, pushing his chair back. Niall quickly looked over at us. He paused the game. "What's going on?" He said, coming over to stand near us.

"No!" I said towards Harry. I turned towards Niall. "Harry wants to explain what's going on with Lynn at the concert tonight. Why should we? I mean, we're only going to be pushing her further and further into...into..." I shrugged. "Something bad. I don't know. I just have a bad feeling about this."

"You can't even come up with a legitimate argument." Harry scoffed. "I say we just introduce Lynn at the concert, and see what happens from there. After that, well... we'll see. Hopefully they'll understand. They will understand."

"And what if they don't?" I challenged. "What if they push their dislike on Lynn?"

"We won't give them the chance! If they're gonna try and hurt Lynn, they're gonna have to get through us. We won't bring her to interviews, or photo shoots. We just have to tell them who Lynn is, and why we need to leave."

"I- what about- what-no!" I stuttered. "What about management? Security might take her away, and a whole bunch of things could go wrong."

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Niall slowly slip away, resuming the game. 

"What happened to you, Louis? What happened to the carefree, fun Louis? What happened?"

"Maybe I realized that someone needed my protection. Maybe I- maybe I woke up. I don't know." I said. "I don't know what happened, but something did."

"Mate, we have to." Liam said, coming and joining us. 

"We don't have to do anything except protect Lynn." I grumbled.

"We want to protect Lynn too, okay? But we're not doing anything helpful if we argue all the time."

I crossed my arms. "So what do you think we should do?"

"Honestly?" Liam said. "I think we should not tell them. Sneak off to London, and explain after she's gone."

"See, that's what I'm saying. We're gonna end up sneaking away, that's pretty inevitable." I sighed. "But please, let's not tell the fans."

Niall walked over, and Lynn quickly followed. "I'm with Harry." He said. "But I thinkg we should let Lynn decide."

A/N: Or rather, you guys. So, what should Lynn choose? I'll write the chapter when I have at least 5 opinions, okay? Love you <3
