Kaia POV

"You're what?" Lia half-screams at me.

"What?" I ask. "We're only going out for coffee again. That's all."

"It's like you want the paparazzi to come find you" she says exasperatedly.

"Lia, stop exaggerating" I complain. "We're just friends. The world already knows that..."

I bow my head slightly.

I kinda did still have feelings for Louis.

He probably doesn't feel the same way about me. I know he said that he doesn't have a girlfriend but that Briana girl is hanging around him a lot.

And there's also the fact that he's one of the most popular pop stars on the planet...

And it's no secret that he's superly handsome.

I shake my head, removing the thoughts from my brain.

"I'm going, Lia" I say firmly. "I just want to hang out with him, that's all."

"Okay..." Lia says wearily. "But don't say I didn't warn you."

"Goodbye, Lia" I say before closing the door behind me.

Once again, I wait outside for Louis.

My coffee in front of me. Reading the latest Twitter news.

The sounds of a car pulling to a stop makes me look up from my phone.

A familiar face emerges from the vehicle. I recognize the tattoos crawling up his arms and peeking off the top of his shirt.

"Lou!" I call, capturing his attention.

His face lights up when his eyes catch sight of me.

He practically runs over to the table I was sitting at.

"Kaia!" He exclaims happily.

I stand up to hug him and the events of our last meet up replay in my mind.

"How are you?" He asks, sitting across from me again.

"Good" I reply. "And yourself?"

"It's been a hectic couple of weeks but I'm getting through it." He smiles his handsome grin, displaying his dimples and his and his ideal teeth.

I smile shyly in return.

"Kaia" he starts, making me glance up. "I still feel the need to apologize."

"Please don't" I urge.

"I just feel I'm responsible for the trail of black cars about to arrive in approximately two minutes."

"How do you-"

"Never mind that" he interrupts. "I just don't want to be carrying the weight on my shoulders every day because I feel guilty."

I lean in closer to his face.

"Louis, I promise you. There is nothing you need to feel guilty for" I assure him. "Let's change the subject."

"Tell me a bit about yourself?" Louis asks, also leaning in.

"What would you like to know?"

"What is your... Middle name?"

"Danielle" I reply.

"Kaia Danielle Tyler" he thinks about it for a moment. "I like it."

"It's my mum's name" I blush slightly. "How about you. What's your middle name?"
