Voyeur

He thought she wasn't getting exactly what she needed.

She believed it was none of his damn business.

And he knew she was too gullible for her own good.

3. Part 3

Annie wanted to know how he is doing this. She's never known Louis to be so forward, so commanding, it almost sounded like he was ordering her to come closer to him. For once it felt really good that someone wanted to be near her. And he's a friend, there's nothing to worry about. Least she went with this because she didn't want to think about how much she craved contact from a man.

It was just sitting closer, she can handle that. She pushed herself up slowly and stepped over the tub, crouching down to Louis' level as he began to sit up when she came all the way down. He looked at her for a moment before he noticed just how beautiful she was up close. How the blush on her cheeks crept up when he lifted his hand to move some hair out of her eyes so he can see her face.

He'd known that face for a while, since they were teenagers, she'd matured long since and he was fascinated with how much she changed, for the better.

"Well I'm closer and now, I don't know what to say. Sorry it's just, that question really threw me, I didn't think you would be so-"

"Curious? I think Liam has a right to know if you are his girl. I was just wondering if you believe that's true."

Annie cleared her throat and gained her posture back. Even though she was closer to Louis than usual she had to maintain a sense of reality and try not to get to that point where she was shivering. Only Liam could make her feel that way, not his friend, or hers for that matter.

Did I love Liam? Well… "Yes I think so. He and I are together and I mean, that does mean something, it's been the longest relationship I've ever had. I think it matters that we mean something to each for it to last as long as it has."

Annie blew out some air she was holding, unsure of why. She didn't need to feel so nervous, the answer was so simple.

"I don't really believe you."

She narrowed her eyes, moving away slightly. She almost glared at him but instead sent him a confused look. Louis would never second guess her. This was out of character for him.

"Seriously, I just don't believe you feel this way about him. Yeah you've been with him a while but you never answered the simple question I asked. Do you love Liam?"

She repositioned her body, "That's a long-winded question though. I love a lot of things; I don't need to shout them out just to prove I do. I show people how I feel about them. It's easier for me then just reciting those Hallmark-inspired words." Annie said, bitterly.

She sounded bitchy, even she can admit that but Louis was prying and judging, something he's never done before and it was coming out of nowhere.

Louis laughed and leaned back down on the mat as his rested his head on the towel. "I know exactly why you can't answer the question."

Annie shook her head, he couldn't be serious now? Louis never acted this abrupt. She was afraid to know what he was thinking and tried to stand up but he held her body back down. She tripped and fell on top of his body. She tried to get up but he held her there, looking at her with new eyes, different eyes. She didn't know him to ever look at her this way; they were friends, why is she behaving this way? Clearly he'd been drinking, her sober mind concluded this.

"Liam doesn't know what you want love, does he? He never took the time to understand it, that right?" Louis whispered, as crazy as all of this seemed, what he was saying wasn't untrue.

Annie scoffed and pushed her entire strength against his grip on her and succeeded. "You have no idea what you're talking about, seriously."

Louis mocked her scoff and gave his trademark smirk instead, "Don't I? Well, since we're making deep confessions tonight, I have something I want to say..."

"I'm scared to hear you continue." She winced.

"Oh it's quite good in my opinion. It's the main reason why you can't answer that question."

Louis bit his lip; he knew what he was doing. He wanted her full attention and when he glanced at her, he knew it was there and that gave him the green light he wanted to continue. "I may have heard you guys shagging."

Annie's jaw dropped. "You asshole! You listened to us while we were intimate!" She gave his shoulder a hard shove and he fell back taking it, with a small, amused smile on his face.

"I may have heard you guys go at it but really, was disappointed in what I heard."

"Uh, excuse me?"

"It was over very quickly. Sounded like Liam got his then."

"What?" Annie's eyebrows twisted. "That doesn't excuse the fact that you're a huge perv. My god! And what do you even mean by "got his"?"

Louis shrugged and fixed the designer collar on his blue blazer. "Usually both have to get theirs. By theirs I mean, pleasure. He wasn't keeping his end of the bargain."

"Bargain? We were intimate, there's no deal made or contract signed in blood. I have no idea what you're referring to."

Louis smiled knowingly. Obviously she doesn't know what it feels like. He figured if he was already this honest, he might as well go all the way now. "He never made sure you came. Hence he got his. He came and you didn't. Unfair in my eyes."

Annie scoffed and put further distance between his body and hers. "You can't possibly know that, I was making noises, all the right ones."

Louis chuckled. "If a bloke really likes someone, fuck, if he really cares about his girl, then he makes sure she gets hers, always. Doesn't matter how many fake noises you make and tell him you came. You obviously didn't. You and him just aren't connected that way."

"You're such an ass. You don't know us. All of a sudden you're acting like you know our sex lives just by being a pervy voyeur one time?! Please Lou, of all the stupid things you've said, this tops all of them." She huffed and crossed her arms over her chest, leaning against the side of the tub.

"I just know what it sounds like to get someone off." She looked at him like he was an immature brat. "Alright, give them pleasure; make them feel good when you are doing something so intimate. You obviously don't know what that feels like; otherwise you wouldn't be so wound up about denying it."

"Somehow you have all of the answers don't you? I don't have to listen to this..." She moved to get up but he made a noise.

"Why, because it's true? Liam isn't the most romantic guy anyway; I've known him for years. I've seen you guys together and it never looked like you guys were a real couple to me. He doesn't even look at you when you're around him. Even when he talks to you."

Annie seethed with mixed emotions, she couldn't control the momentum of her breathing, it just kept racing and her heart was going along for the ride. She balled up her fist suddenly.

"Your body language doesn't look like you're in love with each other. It looks like you're his accessory. You're a beautiful girl, in fact, you are the most interesting girl Li has dated honestly. It's quite sad he would do this to you." Louis said, she couldn't ignore how soft his words were, but the harsh truth made it unbearable to be around.

"Stop it, just stop it. You don't know the situation, you don't know us! You're making these wild accusations because you're not in a relationship yourself and you're making me feel like complete horse shit because I am happy."

Louis laughed again in that sharp way he did when he knew he was right. "Oh that's a big bag of fucking bullocks. OK, we'll go your way…say I'm a wanker about all this? That right? Then why aren't you with him? He's your guy, he's supposed to make you feel like the happiest girl in the world, why isn't he around you right now? Or do I have it wrong? Maybe it's you who doesn't want to be around him now?"

"I do," she said, feeling like she was convincing herself of this more than him. "More than you know Lou, you don't understand us and you never will."

Yes they weren't a perfect couple but she had her problems too. This is just adding to it. "I don't understand why you are prying into my private life. Get yourself a girlfriend and then we'll talk." she concluded, facing away from him by turning her body in the opposite direction.

Louis sighed and gave up; she wasn't going to talk about this. He had hit a strong nerve, maybe she didn't trust him but there were some things she needed to know about the guy she called her "boyfriend." Liam wasn't the perfect guy and he needed to find some way to tell her this without them fighting with each other.

He moved close and she flinched. "Annie, I'm sorry. I don't mean to intrude and I was only here to listen if you wanted to. I guess I was trying to be a friend and help out."

Annie remained quiet for a few long moments. She wanted to calm down her thoughts before more angst came out of her mouth.

He has to know, it's much more than just sex with Liam. It's everything else. Everything I don't tell him because I'm afraid. I guess I'm scared of losing him. I can't tell Louis that. I can't feel so much shame and have Lou give that same look thrown back at me.

Annie pulled up her knees and rested her chin on top. He was right, she was being erratic but she couldn't help herself. Liam may not always be the guy she wanted but he did care, even if he sometimes was a selfish prick, he did care. Maybe convincing herself of this will make it finally real. Even if Louis was right she couldn't bring herself to admit it. At times she did feel like a doormat, and those were the moments she hated herself. Then when Louis said about the eye contact observance, she had to sigh at that because it happened before. She would tell Liam something and he would be two or three steps behind in a reaction, then he'd suddenly agree with her and she'd give up because she knew he didn't really hear her. She used to think it was because this is just what couples do. They just agree with each other a lot and that's that. Even Liam's sister noticed this and asked her if she was ok, Annie lied to her and said everything was fine, she just needed some rest.

But weren't all of these excuses? She was just making all of this up to protect Liam? He is her boyfriend, of course he matters, but did he really earn being in her life? Was his life really her life? The only thing that was %100 true was Louis and Annie always got along; this is the first time they ever really fought over anything.

Somehow this bothered her more than Louis' accusations about her relationship with Liam. Why was she fighting with him? It wasn't like he was coming from a spiteful area. She knew Louis, this wasn't like him. Annie was just frustrated with herself, maybe she can't face the truth, like most people can't, is much harder than anything else for her; harder than forgiveness.

Annie covered her face with her hands and sunk down in herself. He was right but she was too proud to go there. She didn't want to have a messed up relationship because her parents didn't set a good example for her by keeping the harmony. She thought Liam was her harmony, but he wasn't, was he? She couldn't answer that. Louis was right and she felt so embarrassed for yelling at him. He did nothing wrong. They are friends; it shouldn't be like this between them.

She moved slightly closer to Louis, her body was shaking along with what she had to say next.
