Shadow's Target

Chapter 9: Inside Scoop.

[Harry's P.O.V]
I closed the door behind me. I was so furious, but, I didn't know why. There was Taylor getting picked on, Me being lied to, and Scarlett...
I looked down at the floor. I started to head downstairs slowly.
Scarlett. She and Adam had a thing... And who knows for how long... And she lied about Taylor... She was always acting strange with Jocy... There was so much I didn't know.
I took my necklace out and looked at it for a moment. Dani, where are you? You're the one I need to talk to right now.
"You okay mate?" I turned and saw Louis hovering over me.
"Yeah, I'm fine. I just feel like... I'm missing out on so much.. And that everyone is keeping secrets from me." I looked back at my necklace.
"You miss her a lot, don't you Harry?" He was looking at my necklace too.
"So much. She was so funny, sweet, gorgeous, amazing. She was my best friend Lou. She would know what to do in any situation and always helped me through so much. Then, she just disappeared into thin air." I stayed quiet for a moment.
"I just don't know what happened Lou. One day we were playing around on the roof, talking about life. The next, she was waving goodbye at me and getting in a car with some... Girls."
"Have you ever thought of just looking for her? Like, google her name or something?" He said chuckling.
"That's the thing... We never really told each other our real names cause we knew our parents hated each other. We were just scared that one day we would blurt out our real names... Now that I think about it though... That's a pretty stupid thing we did." I slapped my forehead as I laughed. Louis joined in.
"That's pretty stupid alright. Why'd she call you Eddy anyways?"
"I think it was cause of my middle name. I think I called her Dani because she always played with dandelions, or cause of her last name?" I smiled at the thought of her. She had amazing eyes, a sweet smile, long blond hair that eventually started getting darker, and that was always in a ponytail with a bow. She always wore the necklace I gave her.
I remembered the girl at the club. She had the necklace. I couldn't help but wonder.
"Well, listen mate, I may not be this amazing Dani that's full of wisdom, but you got to talk to these girls. Taylor is sobbing downstairs and Sky is up there throwing a tantrum... I advise you to go to Taylor first. Don't want that pretty face of yours getting hurt by Sky's bionic arm." I chuckled.
"Lou?" He looked at me.
"What Do you think of Taylor?" He went silent and looked down. After a moment, he looked back at me.
"If you like her, then it shouldn't matter. But, I don't even know the girl well enough to judge. She's always trying to avoid everyone because of Scarlett. If those two got along, life would be so much easier." He said laughing.
"Yeah, I guess you're right." I got up and stretched.
"I guess I'm gonna go to Taylor now. Thanks for listening to me Louis." He nodded and went back upstairs.
I was looking for Taylor everywhere, then, I found her in the girls room. She was sitting by their mirror as she wiped of her smeared makeup with their wipes. Just looking at her that way, made me sad.
"Tay?" She quickly got up as she looked at me.
"Can we talk?" She nodded and I took her to the balcony.
"Look Taylor-"
"I'm sorry." She said. I turned to her and she was just starting straight ahead.
"I'm sorry for lying about Scarlett. I just... I knew that if we admitted to knowing each other, she would've told you the whole Adam thing and how I took him away. What I did to him was horrible, I know. I just used him for my own selfish reasons and broke them apart. I didn't want you thinking; maybe she'll do the same to me! Maybe, I'll just end up thrown off to the side like that guy! I wanted to get to know you Harry, I wanted you to like me." She turned to me with a straight face.
"I do like you Taylor. You're pretty down to earth and like to spend time together. I like that. I just want us to be close to my friends as well because I want them to like you too." I pulled her in and hugged her. She hugged me back tighter.
"Thanks Harry." I let go of her and then kissed forehead.
"Now, I gotta go talk to Scarlett." She was about to say something when I interrupted with;
"And YOU have to talk to her as well." She froze.
"I... I don't know if that's such a good idea." She said nervously as she twirled her hair in her hands.
"It will be fine after I talk to her." I held her hand and we went back inside. I saw Scarlett, Louis, Jocy, and Adam sitting on the table, while the rest were on the opposite side of the room watching tv.
"Take a seat on that couch there." I pointed at Niall's direction.
"Alright." She said as she slowly walked over there.
I looked back at Scarlett and them. They were talking about something but stopped when I got there.
"Scarlett, we need to talk." She looked at me. Her eyes were dull, she didn't have that sparkle she normally does.
"Yeah, okay." I was surprised at how she didn't even bother to ask why.
"Come to my room." I held her hand and we walked. They were so soft...
She sat down on the edge of my bed and looked at me blankly. I sat down by her and began to talk.
"Look, I'm sorry for the way I yelled at you... Both times. I didn't mean to. I just feel like you don't want me near you anymore. I mean, we would joke around and pretend we hated each other, but now, I feel like you actually do hate me, especially cause of Taylor." She looked down.
"I don't hate you. I actually think we have more in common than we really know, but we can't really find out if that's true or not, can we? Taylor constantly takes you away from the guys. Louis misses you, Zayn, Liam, Niall! They all want you around them again, but you're always with her and we never really get to talk. She's just trying to get you away from them so you can forget about them like-" her voice was starting to crack, so I finished her sentence.
"She did with you and Adam." She looked up at me. She had sadness written all over her face.
"Have you even considered the idea that Maybe she only took me out so much because she didn't want to confront you? Especially after what happened?" She frowned.
"She's only putting this act-"
"Talk to her!" She went silent.
"Look, I'm going to bring her in here and you two are gonna talk it out." She looked at me as if I was crazy.
I walked out and came back with Taylor. They just stared at each other for a long time.
"Talk you two."
"But Harry-"
"No! Talk. I'll be back in a few." I closed the door and went to sit with Louis, Adam, and Jocy.
"Where's Sky?" Asked Jocy.
"And Taylor?" Added Adam.
"Harry... Did you-"
"Leave them alone? Yeah." I leaned back. All of a sudden, I felt a hard thump on my head.
"Ouch!!!" I put my arms on my head and looked up. Jocy was standing over me with the same look Scarlett had; as if I was crazy.
"Jocy! What was that for?" I asked as I rubbed my head.
"Are... You... An IDIOT?!" She was about to hit me again, when Niall came in and got a hold of her.
"Calm down Jocy! It's fine." He kissed her cheek, but that didn't help at all.
"You're stupid for putting those two together! They can claw each other to death!" We kept arguing back an forth. Jocy was like a Scarlett on the inside, and it scared me. At one point, Niall let go of her and she was going to pounce at me. She started chasing me around and everyone tried to stop us. God she was so athletic, like Scarlett! What do these girls do to be like that?! We all started yelling for one another since everything was getting chaotic.
"Are you guys okay?" We all stop in our position and turned. Scarlett was with Taylor. They were... laughing?
"Uhhh... Are you two okay?" Asked Adam shocked.
They looked at each other and smiled.
"Fine." They said simultaneously.
"This is getting weeeeiiirrrrrrdddd...." Said Jocy in a sing song voice. We all nodded in agreement. What had just happened?

[Scarlett's P.O.V]
He came back with her. I can't do this! She's a damn Guardian for fucks sake! But I couldn't tell Harry that.
"Talk you two." He said as he started to back up.
"But Harry-"
"No! Talk. I'll be back in a few." He closed the door and left us alone. I just looked at her, and she looked at me. I was about to call her out when;
"Wait!" She held out her hands. What was she up too?
"Look, I have something-"
"Don't even bother." I said with spite.
"Could you just listen?!" She yelled. Woah. Blondie had some sass.
I backed down and crossed my arms.
"Look, I know you hate me for everything I did to you-"
"And Adam!"
"Wait! Let me finish!" I held back from yelling at her and let her continue.
"There was a reason for all of that-"
"To become one of those stupid Guardians right? Wanted to be part of those who revolt and want to take power beyond belief!"
"Yeah.. I wanted to be a Guardian, but only because Ms.Ryan told me too." I blinked. What did she jut say?
"She wanted me to be this insider for her. I HAD to be horrible to you. I HAD to do all those things-"
"What about the whole glove thing, huh?"
"Remember that dancer that was paired up with Harry after we argued?" I nodded. What does she have to do with anything?
"She was a Guardian. She had her eyes on me, on YOU and Jocy! She had to make sure I somehow stirred up trouble with you and wasn't against them." This is all a bunch of bullshit.
"And I know right now you're probably thinking, 'Oh this is Bullshit!'" You got that right princess.
"But I'm serious... I only did those things as a way to make them trust me. An because of that," she pulled out her phone and laid it on the floor.
She pulled up a hologram map of the Guardians Headquarters.
This... This can't be real!
"they gave me this. They moved me up, they trusted me with the strategic placement of all the Guardians in the headquarters. I have every inch of the place in this one file, every location a Guardian has been positioned... An you can have it! I don't care!" I was shocked. Is this all some kind of plan? I don't want to repeat this again...
"How do I know you're not pulling the same stunt your head Guardian pulled against me?" I said a I stood up. Taylor also got up and started to dial someone.
"Hello there Taylor. How can I help you?" There she was... Ms. Ryan... On the phone... With... Taylor?!
"Is that Scarlett behind you?" Ms. Ryan looked at me and waved. I waved back. She seemed a little perkier than usual, but that was her.
"Yes. She just had to know now. I know you wanted me to tell her until the end of the guys tour, but it was about time I did." I couldn't believe my eyes. Am I dreaming?
"I figured that you and Scarlett would've gotten into some sort of argument eventually. I'm surprised it took her this long though."
"Ha Ha. Very funny." I said. She just laughed. She seemed odd for some reason, like she had done something different to herself.
"Don't worry Sky. Taylor isn't a threat. She's a big essential part for a project I'm working on." Right before I could ask he anything else to ease my suspicions, she said she had to leave and hung up immediately.
Taylor just turned to me.
"I'm sorry." She said. I couldn't say anything. I was still trying to soak this in.
"And about Harry..." I locked my eyes to hers.
"I really like him. I won't do anything to hurt him, I swear." I looked away. I didn't know wether or not to believe everything.
"And Adam..." I looked back at her.
"He really did like you Scarlett. He was head over heels for you." I felt my heart beat a bit faster.
"And even now, he seems like he still has those same feelings for you." She looked down as she smiled.
"Besides, he wasn't my type. He was always all over the place and trying to make me do the weirdest things in public." I laughed.
"Like his shimmy dance?" I said a I demonstrated.
"Oh my god! That was the worst! He spilled coffee all over some girl once because of that! I was so embarrassed!" She said as she covered her face.
"At least he didn't make you fall over the bridge, into FREEZING water!"
"Actually... I fell over a bridge into mud." We started laughing. God, Adam was horrible.
"He sure knows how to keep a lady." Taylor said sarcastically. We just laughed.
"STYLES!!" We looked towards the door.
"What the hell was that?" She said raising an eyebrow.
"I have no clue..." I answered back. We started to walk out and saw everyone running wildly.
"MY HEAD!" We started laughing.
"Are you guys okay?" I asked.
"Uhhh... Are you two okay?" Asked Adam almost shocked. I don't blame him though, me and Taylor were laughing... TOGETHER!
We just looked at each other. I still have my eyes on her, but, besides that...
"Fine." We answered simultaneously.
"This is getting weeeeiiirrrrrrdddd...." I turned and saw them all looking at us like freaks.
"What's the matter?" I said as I walked towards them.
"Never seen two girls make up?" Said Taylor as she came up from behind me. They just looked at one another.
"Y'all are so weird." Taylor said rolling her eyes.
"I was wondering though, maybe you guys want to come and see me perform tomorrow? Then afterwards, we can all go out to eat! My treat! I never really got the chance to talk to any of you guys anyways." Everyone looked at me.
"What?" I asked lost.
"She's offering to buy us food! You can't deny that!" I said.
"Umm, sure. Maybe after practice?" Said Liam.
"Sounds perfect! I'll see you all then! Bye Harry! Bye guys!" She kissed Harry, then waves goodbye to everyone. I watched her walk out the door, then turned and saw everyone looking at me.
"What was that?!" Said Louis shocked. Everyone started asking me questions and I was panicking.
"Okay! Okay! Everyone, back away from her!" Harry said as he stood in front of me.
"Even though that was weird and totally unexpected," he looked at me for a second.
"They at least worked things out. Lets leave it at that and let's head on to bed." Everyone whined. I guess they just wanted to know the gossip.
Harry turned back to me.
"Thank you Scarlett." He hugged me.
"You're so touchy touchy." I said as I hugged him back. He looked at me weirdly for a moment, then laughed. He leaned in and kissed my forehead.
"Oh you love it!" He let go and walked off.
Where have I heard that from?

"WHAT HAPPENED?!" I walked into my room and saw Louis, Jocy, Zayn, and Niall sitting on my bed, waiting for details.
"Ugh." I rolled my eyes as I smiled. I looked the door and sat on the floor. I took out my phone an opened the file that Taylor sent me.
"Is that... What I think it is?!" Asked Jocy, mouth wide open.
"Yup. The map to the Guardians headquarters." I said.
"How did you-"
"Taylor!" They looked at me, shocked.
"Taylor gave you that?! Lies!" Said Louis.
"She was actually a insider for our boss's assistant; Ms. Ryan!" Jocy gasped.
"Are you joking?! Oh my god!"
Once I told them all the details, everyone just sat there silent, taking all of this in.
"I still have my suspicions, but, this map is good enough for me to put a bit of trust in her." I said.
"This is all just... Mindfucking me." Said Zayn. I laughed.
"I know what you mean, I couldn't believe it either." I said.
"So, what are you and Jocy going to so with that map now?" Asked Niall.
Me and Jocy looked at each other and smiled.
"Invasion... Soon." We said together.
"This all sounds so cool! I wish I was like you guys sometimes!" Said Zayn.
"Yeah, all your gadgets and moves!" Said Louis.
"You're so pretty Jocy." We turned to Niall who was starring at Jocy.
"What?" He looked at us as if he didn't do anything and we started to laugh.
"You're so sweet!" Jocy leaned in and started to kiss him.
"Woaahhhh! Time for bed!" Said Louis as he seperated their faces.
Once they left, me and Jocy started to talk about the whole thing.
"We still have to keep our eyes peeled though Sky." I agreed. I didn't want to end up being blind sided.
"We got this Jocy. Me and you together; nobody can stop us!" I hugged her and we squealed.
"This is huge Scarlett! Gah! We gotta sleep before I get more excited."
"You're so silly. But alright, night!" We turned off the lights and went to our beds.
I still couldn't help but think of Ms. Ryan....
