But soon, Marcel finds himself falling for his friend...what will happen when her biggest secret is revealed? Will Marcel still like her? Or will this secret tear Annie and him apart...forever?


18. Secrets revealed

You know, I never really knew that telling someone the secret that you’ve held for so song could actually feel so stinking good! I felt free! Like happier than I’ve ever been before. I hung out with Harry constantly for the next few months. We weren’t official, but we were pretty darn close. Niall and Hannah were official, and were as cute as ever—it was plain to see that Niall cared very much for her, and vice versa.  Louis still carried a torch for Eleanor Calder but not as badly as before—it was more like he found her attractive than anything else. Zayn began to grow close with a girl named Perrie Edwards, who was Allie McSnob’s neighbor and former best friend. Liam’s cousin, Olivia, moved to Holmes Chapel a few days before winter break. We haven’t met her yet, but Liam says she’s pretty cool. Liam had met a girl from another school, named Casey, and he had hit it off with her quite well. They were just friends at the moment, but everyone could see that it was soon going to turn into something more. Everything was okay until the first day of school after winter break…that’s when everything started to fall apart…

“I wonder what Olivia looks like?” Hannah wondered out loud as she leaned against Niall’s shoulder and munched on her sandwich.

“Liam said she was blonde, and had blue eyes. We have another Hannah! Maybe this one will be less cray cray!” I teased. She threw a wadded up napkin at me, and everyone laughed.

“I heard she was only sixteen, and she’s a junior.” Zayn nudged Louis’ arm. “She’s too young for you, mate.”

“Who says I’d be interested in her?” Louis protested (See what I did there?J).

“Cuz you're the only one out of all of us who’s still single.” Niall teased, his eyebrows wagging as he teased his friend. Louis stuck his tongue out at him, then stood and raised his arms like Superman.

“Single, and proud of—“ He started, then stopped, staring in behind us. We all turned around, and Harry nudged me as Liam and a tall blonde girl walked up. She was wearing a red Jack Willis sweatshirt, and black skinny jeans with Converse that matched her shirt. Her blonde hair was swept into a ponytail at the base of her neck, and she wore a bit of mascara. Louis still stood like an idiot, his arms raised up, and Zayn reached up and slapped Louis’ leg. His hands fell, and Louis glared at Zayn, his face red.

“Hey, everyone!” Liam smiled, and plopped down next to me. “Hi, Striker!” He kissed my cheek.

“Hey, back off, Payne, she’s mine.” Harry teased. I made a face, and kissed Liam’s cheek.

“Hi, LiLi.”

“Everyone, this is my cousin, Liv. Liv, this is everyone.”

“Specific, Liam.” Olivia laughed, standing awkwardly by the table.

“Fine.” Liam sighed heavily and pointed at me. “This is Annie, the boy sitting next to her is her almost boyfriend, Harry; next to him is Niall, then his girlfriend, Hannah; Zayn is next to him, and last but not least is Louis.” We all said hello and such, and I waved her over to Louis.

“You can sit there, Liv.” I winked. “Louis won’t mind.” Louis’ face slowly turned pink as Olivia sat down next to him. Harry grinned, and leaned down.

“You little matchmaker, you.” He whispered, his lips brushing against my ear. I giggled.

“You know that’s right.” I leaned on his arm. Suddenly, Allie came waltzing up.

“Hey, Olivia.” She said, completely ignoring the rest of us. I sighed, and Harry’s arm wrapped around my shoulders. “So you're hanging out with the Rat Pack?” Allie looked at all of us. “I wouldn’t do that if I were you.”

“Allie, you tried the same thing with Hannah.” Niall rolled his eyes. “It’s getting old.”

“Yeah, and she’s my cousin, so back off.” Liam snapped.

“Fine.” Allie stepped back, and raised her hands. “But if one of you ends up dead, don’t come crying to me.” I felt Harry stiffen, and my heart gave a little ping.

“What do you mean, Allie?” Zayn asked.

“Well, you do have a murderer in your little club…” Allie smirked at me, and my heart stopped. I sat straight up, as everyone turned to me.

“Annie? What is she talking about?” Louis asked.

“She shoved her mum, and she fell, and cracked her head open. She killed her own mother!” Allie proclaimed loudly, pointing to me. I clenched my fists. We were drawing a crowd, and I didn’t want that. I didn’t want any of this. I knew I shouldn’t have told Harry.

“Y-you're lying. I don’t know what you're talking about!” I yelled.

“Oh, really? Ask Harry!” I froze, and whirled around. Harry stood behind me. He held up his hand.

“Annie, it’s not what you think!” Allie smirked, and sauntered away, as the crowd around us started buzzing. I stared at Harry, tears forming in my eyes.

“Ann, did you really do that?” Liam asked softly. Hannah looked at me worriedly, and Niall took her hand. I looked around the circle, and everyone was giving me doubtful looks. Just wait until your biggest secret is revealed…where will your friends be then? Allie’s words from a few months ago rang in my head, and I whirled around to face Harry.

“I trusted you…” I whispered.


“No, Harry! I trusted you with my biggest secret, and you promised you wouldn’t tell! You promised!” Tears clogged my throat, and I pressed a hand over my mouth, then turned and ran from the room. I heard Harry and Louis call after me, but I ignored them.

AN: So sorry this is so short! :) Hope you enjoy!
