I stood up abruptly when I heard stomping in the hallways. Suddenly the door opened, and everyone flooded in.
"What the fuck is this?" Louis demanded, pointing his phone at me.
Just like I expected, he was pissed. Really pissed.
"Lou calm do-"
"No don't you fucking tell me to calm down!" He cut me off. "Are you two together?" He spoke with disgust in his voice. I looked at Bella who I could tell was uncomfortable with the situation. I sighed.
"Yes, we are." I admitted. If possible, his face became even angrier.
"ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS!!!" I saw Bella flinch beside me.
"Louis please don't be mad." Bella pleaded in a small voice. Louis let out a humourless laugh.
"Don't be mad? Of course I'm mad Bella!! What the fuck you two. I'm sorry Harry but Bella deserves so much better then you. All your going to do is hurt her. You say you won't but eventually you'll fuck up like you always do." My head dropped when he said that. He's right. I always fuck up everything good. But I can't do that to Bella. I won't do it to Bella.
"This is why I didn't want to tell you," I mumbled. Niall scoffed.
"So you hid it for your own selfish reasons." I narrowed my eyes at him, but didnt say anything. Bella on the other hand had other ideas...
"Okay how about you just shut the fuck up. Since you've known about me and Harry for a couple of weeks and did nothing except try to make it hard for us! So if you wanna talk about people keeping secrets for selfish reasons, HOW ABOUT WE START THERE!" We were all shocked at Bellas outburst as just moments ago she was all shy and nervous.
"You knew?" Liam yelled, shocked and obviously annoyed. "What the hell mate why didnt you tell us." He demanded. Niall, suddenly realising he shouldn't have spoken, decided to leave.
"I'm just gonna-um-yup." He ran out of the apartment. I rolled my eyes, turning to Bella who was glaring at Louis with utter disgust.
"Your horrible Louis." She stated simply. He raised his eyebrows.
"Your horrible. Harry's your best friend." She shook her head. Louis scoffed.
"You think Eliza's gonna react any better?" As if on cue Eliza pushed her way into the apartment right up to Bella.
"Your dating him?" She pointed to me. Bella nodded, looking almost guilty. Eliza sighed.
"Really? Really? Out of all the guys who would date you, you picked Harry Styles?" The tone in her voice wasnt so much anger as it was annoyance. Like Bella dating me was just annoying.
"C'mon Bella. Seriously? Harry Styles?" Bella nodded. Eliza then turned to me. "You ever hurt her and I will find you and saw off your dick with blunt scissors, understood?" She spoke with so much seriousness that it scared me. I swallowed and nodded. She narrowed her eyes. "Good." Then she turned back to Bella. "Congrats on getting a boyfriend, I don't approve of you choice, but its not like anything I say will change your mind." She shrugged and walked into the kitchen, helping herself to some food. Louis' face was priceless. If it wernt for the situation, I would have taken a picture.
"What!?" He screamed at her.
"What?" She seemed confused.
"Are you serious? The one situation I can count on you to be on my side, and your actually ok with this? He'll hurt her, you know that right? They'll break up and you'll be stuck with a broken Bella." It took all I had not to punch him. Why does he have so little faith in me. Surprisingly, Eliza seemed to be having similar thoughts.
"Your kidding right? How dare you say sort of stuff about your best friend? How dare you! I don't control Bella's life and you sure as hell don't either. Okay, so maybe he hurts her. I would happily help Bella get back on her feet, and incase you hadn't realised, Bella's pretty damn good at taking care of herself. So know I won't be 'stuck with a broken Bella'," she mimicked his voice, slowly advancing towards him.
"Why do you have so little faith in Harry? No, he's not my first choice for Bella's boyfriend, but its not my decision. She can date whoever the fuck she wants. I don't get to dictate who she does and doesn't date. What I get to do is make sure I'm there if she does end up getting hurt. Because that's what friends do. I'm not gonna yell at Bella for dating him, and I'm not going to yell at her for keeping it a secret either. Because I can sure see there reasons from hiding it. You disgust me Tomlinson." With that she stormed out of the apartment, leaving Louis and the rest of us bewildered. Never in a million years would I think that Eliza would be the one to defend me.
Snapping out of shock, Louis turned back to me.
"Your pathetic Harry and Bella deserves so much better than you," He shook his head and stormed up to his room. His words where like a stab to my chest. Louis is supposed to be my best friend. I sighed, thinking the yelling was over, but oh no, that was only round one. Zayn stepped forward, looking at Bella.
"Harry? Are you serious?" He spoke though gritted teeth. His knuckles were clenched at his sided.
"Why Bella? Why Harry? I see when you go out, guys everywhere stare at you, why Harry?" He was speaking to her like an overprotective brother. A very angry one. I could see a hint of fear in Bellas eyes as Zayn glared at her, waiting for an answer.
"I-I-uh," she stuttered over her words, the fear becoming more evident in her features.
"How long have you two been together?" He took a step forwards, causing Bella to instinctively take a step back, now shaking a little as Zayn towered over her.
"Zayn!" I yelled. He didnt move. "Zayn your scaring her." His head snapped towards me, confused.
"What?" He turned back to Bella, his eyes widening at the state he had put her in. His face instantly softened.
"I'm sorry Bella, I didnt mean to...." He trailed off, turning back to me.
"You should have told us. Well actually you shouldn't be with her in the first place. But you should have told us," then he marched passed me into his room, slamming the door behind him. Letting out a breath, Bella stepped forwards back to me. I turned, sighing to look at the three people left standing in front of me. El, Dani and Liam. Liam rolled his eyes and walked towards the stairs.
"Liam," Bella called desperately after him, but he just kept walking. El and Dani wrapped Bella in a hug. The both pulled away smiling softly.
"For what it's worth, I think you two are really cute together, but I'm gonna go try and calm down Liam," Dani smiled and walked off. El smiled at me and Bella.
"I always knew you two would end up together." She smiled proudly. "I know I should go talk to Lou, but honestly I'm a little scared, so is it okay if I stay down here for a while, while he cools off a bit." Bella smiled and nodded.
"Absolutely." As we were sitting down Luke and Jamie walked though the door. Ok does everyone have a key or do we just never lock it? Jamie lifted Bella so she was sitting on his shoulder, something that made me incredibly scared of his strength.
"So you finally told them?" My eyebrows scrunched in confusion.
"You knew?" I asked. He nodded.
"It was pretty obvious." I shrugged, not bothering to press it any more. He seemed pretty cool with it all. Luke, not so much. He shot me a glare before picking Bella up off Jamie's shoulder and placing her on the couch. I'll admit, it is extremely intimidating how strong those two are. Luke literally moved her like she was a doll. He looked down at her, like a disapproving parent. He looked at her, waiting for her to speak. It was a few minutes before she finally broke under his stare and spoke.
"Sorry, I should have told you." He nodded.
"Yes you should have." His face showed no emotion.
"Are you mad?" Bella asked cautiously. Luke sighed, falling down on the couch next to her.
"No I'm not mad. But I was shocked when my phone blew up with links to a video of you and Harry making out....on a swing," Her face flushed with embarrassment, and so did mine.
"Yeah....umm....about that......." She trailed off. Luke laughed, his face splitting into a grin.
"It's ok. It was a very weird experience watching he video. It was practically watching my sister and her boyfriend making out right infront of me though." Bella laughed, leaning on to him.
"Thank you for not being mad." He smiled and nodded. The door to the apartment opened....again.
"Bella!" She squeeled and Bella jumped up.
"OHMIGOD Perrie I totally forgot you were coming today! I've missed you so much!" They both hugged.
"Well, apparently there's a lot we need to catch up on," Perrie looked at me. "How long have you two been together?"
"A while, since before we saw you last." Perrie 'awww'ed and clapped her hands.
"You guys are so cute together!" I scoffed.
"Tell that to your boyfriend." Confused, Perrie turned back to me.
"What do you mean?" She asked. I sighed.
"Zayn, along with Louis, Liam and maybe Niall are convinced I'm just gonna end up hurting Bella and that she deserves better then me. There...not exactly enthusiastic about us being together." I looked down, mad at the things they had said. Even Eliza didnt yell at us, the boys are meant to be my best friends.
"What?" Perrie screeched. She mumbled something and stormed to Zayns room and pulling him out.
"Perrie?" He asked, shocked. Then realisation crossed his face. "Shit I forgot. I'm so sorry. Baby I've missed you so much." He leant in to kiss her but she stepped back, completely surprising Zayn.
"You wanna explain something," she pursed her lips. He looked at me and anger once again crossed his face.
"What, you mean how Bella and him are dating," Oh great. Now he can't even say my name.
"What gives you the right to judge there relationship?" She demanded.
"Your on there side? Are you serious! Perrie Bellas one of your best friends surely your not okay with this." He sounded outraged.
"Your right, Bella is one of my best friends. Which is why I'm so happy. Why are you being such a dick about this. They're happy, can't you see that? They obviously hid it for this reason! Would you have preferred they never told you?" Perrie was screaming so loudly I'm surprised the others hadn't come downstairs.
"No I would have preferred they had never been together in the first place!" He yelled back, equally loud. I felt terrible, being the topic of one of there fights. Bella stepped forward a little.
"SHUT UP BELLA!!!" Frightened, Bella shut her mouth and stepped back, Luke put his arm around her protectively. She looked to me with wide eyes, not knowing what to do next.
"That's not your decision Zayn," Perrie spoke with a lot of sass.
"Perrie Louise Edwards how the fuck are you okay with this? He's going to hurt her. You know that right? He'll hurt her and your ok with that?"
"Don't you dare try to make me feel bad about this." She hissed at him. "What if, when we told the others about us they all were horrible about it, saying that it wouldn't work out because of our careers. How would you have felt? Huh?" None of them were backing down and I was starting to get really worried at how mad they both were.
"This isn't about us. This is about them." Zayn retaliated.
"Your right, this isn't about us. So why are you so mad about it? He's happy. She's happy. Why can't you just let it be you heartless bastard?" Perrie shouted.
"You naive bitch. Because he'll hurt her! And I don't want to see Bella hurt again. They will end up broken up." Perrie rolled her eyes at Zayn.
"THEY ARE LIKE NINETEEN ZAYN! FUCKING NINETEEN! Of course there's a chance they'll break up. They are 18 and 19. There's a chance El and Louis will break up. A chance Dani and Liam will brake up. A chance you and me will break up. You know why? BECAUSE WE ARE ALL YOUNG!" She screeched in his face.
"Better they end things now before Harry does anything stupid." Zayn sneered. Perrie laughed.
"Bloody hell Zayn. Get your head out of your ass. It's not a hat!" Then Zayn did something none of us were expecting.
He slapped Perrie.
zayn Zayn Zayn. Tsk tsk.
