Behind Closed Doors {Larry Stylinson}

Chapter 35


“Perfect, yes just like that.”

I’m holding the most awkward pose and trying to make it look natural. I don’t understand how people can model all the damn time. It’s exhausting and boring.

“Okay, let’s take one last break and have a hair and makeup touch-up.”

I try not to visibly roll my eyes at the director’s announcement, but the stylist I’m assigned to is quite annoying. Louis asked me how many girls came onto me, but he never asked about men. This guy is nothing to worry about, though. He’s a bit too obnoxious for my liking. I sulk over to my chair and wait for his excited, high-pitched squeal.

“Okay, Styles. Let’s get you fixed up.”

I force a small grin and stare at myself in the mirror while he tugs at my hair, adding wax and gel where he desires.

“You should let me take you out since it’s your last day in Milan!”

“That’s okay, I should get some sleep. I have an early flight.”

This guy is clearly coming on to me, but I always feel the need to be nice.

“Come on! I know all the good clubs for guys like us.”

I cock an eyebrow and look at him through the mirror.

“Guys like us?”


I nearly choke on my own spit. Why would he say that?

“I’m not-“

I won’t say it; I hate denying it. He leans down and his lips are uncomfortably close to my ear.

“Yes, you are.”

I swallow hard and stare at him through the mirror in the empty room. His hands rest on my
shoulders and he starts to knead his fingers near my neck.

“Please don’t touch me like that. I have a- I’m with someone.”

He chuckles and returns his fingers to my hair.

“Your boyfriend should keep a tighter leash on you.”

He sprays a few spritzes of hairspray and holds his hands out, presenting my hair.

“Voila. Perfect. Off to makeup.”

He shoos me out of his chair and I scurry out the door, thankful to get away from him. I can’t even remember this guys name. I wish Louise was here instead of Armani’s team. She always makes me look so much better and already knows about Louis and I. I just want to go home.



“Why are we doing damn interviews while Harry’s gone? It’s so stupid.”

Zayn shrugs and Liam rolls his eyes.

“I think they want to make Harry look like this busy super-celebrity, because no one knows that
they’re the only reason he’s gone.”

He’s right. Harry is the only one who is forced into celeb parties and hangs around other famous people. Harry’s the only one modeling undergarments. It’s most irritating because it’s not what Harry wants. The rest of us are quite pleased that we get time out of the limelight, but Harry never does.

“Lou, when does he get home?”

“Early in the morning.”

Liam rests his elbow on my shoulder and speaks softly so no one but the lads can hear.

“Did anyone make sure his place is alright?”

Niall leans over the counter to get closer and answers before I can.

“Actually we moved all his stuff over to Lou’s place.”

Liam grins and Zayn pats me on the back.

“I’m glad you two are living together again. How exactly did that work out? I thought
management made him move out the first time.”

“They did, but let’s just say we worked something out.”

Zayn seems satisfied with my answer and Liam winks, likely remembering the shenanigans he engaged in with Harry and Cara.

“Alright, boys. You’re on in 2.”

We all shrug and I take a deep breath. I turn around to find Jason towering over me, a smirk on his face and his arms crossed.

“Can I help you? I kind of need to take a seat.”

“I just wanted to remind you to avoid questions about Harry. She’s going to ask where he is and you need to seem uninterested.”

“Yeah, okay. That’s fine.”

I usually try to come up with a smart-ass retort, but I don’t have the energy anymore. Besides, don’t want to do anything to ruin things. Jason seems surprised by my compliance and steps out of the way for me to walk past. I sit on the end of the red couch, to the right of Niall and solemnly adjust the microphone on the table in front of me. Unfortunately, this isn’t just a radio interview. It’s a damn telly interview, so I really have to hide all expressions and I’m absolutely terrible at it, especially when someone pisses me off.

“Rolling in 5...”

The lights get brighter.


The interviewer clears her throat and adjusts her clothes.


I watch the man in front of me hold up two fingers and then one before I turn to the interviewer
and plaster on a fake smile.

“Good evening, boys. How are you?”

We all nod and mutter ‘good’ or ‘well’ and Niall takes the opportunity to be the outspoken one in
Harry’s absence.

“How are you? You look lovely.”

She obviously doesn’t. I’ve met this woman before. Her outfits are always a bit drab and her makeup is just awful. She blushes at his comment and smiles wide.

“Thank you very much, Niall. So do you.”

He winks and makes a cheesy clicking noise with his mouth that I just can’t help but laugh at. Shit, that got her attention.

“Louis, how are things with Eleanor?”

I do what I always do: think about how things are with Harry and replace him with El.

“Things are great. I haven’t seen her in a bit so I miss her.”

Niall drops his arm under the table and swats my leg before leaning in to whisper in my ear as
the interviewer smiles, nods, and goes on to ask Zayn about Perrie.

“Lou, you saw El like two days ago, didn’t you?”

Fuck. I did. I completely forgot because I was so wrapped up in seeming hopelessly in love. Hopefully no one will catch on. I try to hide my worry and bite my lip nervously as I search for Jason’s face behind the cameras. He looks his same stern self; nothing too scary.

“And Liam, you’ve started seeing someone?”

“Yeah, it’s still new, but Sophia is great.”

“So, Niall, that makes you the only single one present! Harry’s off in Italy, correct?”

Thankfully, she directed that question to Niall specifically. I’m safe.

“Yeah, he’s been doing some work out there and quite a bit of partying too, I presume.”

He chuckles and I force a tight-lipped grin. That’s always been Harry’s persona. Party animal, sex-crazed womanizer. It never really bothered me until I started to see him turning into those things. Now, though, I’m so proud of his progress. I just can’t take another second of him being

The minutes pass slowly and we finally start to wrap things up by acknowledging rumors of a new album in the works. Liam speaks up and in a curtly manner, answers her final prying question.

“We have been working on something, yes. I think everyone will be pleased.”

With that, the woman claps her hands together and looks behind us at an unseen camera.

“Thank you for joining us boys. And thank you to our viewers. Saying goodbye to One Direction,
I’m Katie Welling. Have a good evening.”

“And cut!”

People hustle all around us and we stand up from the uncomfortable couch, making our way
over to Jason for our nod of approval.

“Alright, see you guys later. Louis, come here for a moment.”

The lads look at me questioningly and Liam motions them over toward the exit, where they stand awaiting me.

“Uh, yeah?”

Jason shoos away his assistant and steps closer.

“You need to be more careful. I caught your little mishap when she asked about Eleanor. I’m not
going to lose it because I don’t have mental capacity to deal with you anymore and I don’t want people to get any ideas. Get it together, Louis.”

“Yes sir. I’m sorry; it won’t happen again.”

He rolls his eyes and massages his temple with one hand as I turn away and make my way
across the room as quickly as possible.

“What’d he say?”

“He’s just pissed because I messed up.”

I play it off nonchalantly because there is nothing for us to talk about. It was my fault and he was
right, I do have to be more careful.

“Alright. Don’t worry about it, Lou.”

Zayn nods in agreement with Liam and Niall rests his hand on my shoulder.

“Can we go get some food? I’m starved.”

Liam and Zayn agree and they all look at me. My smile isn’t forced this time.

“I actually need to go home. I have a surprise for Harry and I need to make sure everything is perfect.”
