Kaia POV

Yeah, of course I was a bit alarmed when I woke up in a room that wasn't mine.

Wouldn't anyone be?

I jumped high enough that I fell off the bed and tumbled onto the floor, causing Louis to jump as well.

"Are you okay?" He asks worriedly.

"Yeah I'm fine" I say, standing up.

"Sorry" he says, glancing downwards.

"What would you be sorry for?" I ask.

"I feel like I tend to be the cause of the things that go wrong around me" he replies. "I'm a bit of a klutz."

"Then you and I have that in common" I laugh.

"I hope I didn't make you feel uncomfortable last night when I suggested that you come in here" he apologizes.

"Not at all!" I reply.

Louis smiles slightly though I can tell he is still worried that he made me feel uncomfortable.

For a moment, the room is silent.

We look at each other without breaking contact.

I can't even hear the banging on Louis' bedroom door the first time. I only realize someone is there when Harry barges in.

"Okay, lovebirds" He says. "Time for breakfast."

><><><><><

"Are you sure you have to leave now?" Louis asks while I reach for my coat from the closet.

"Sorry, Lou" I reply sadly. "I have an assignment due next week that I need to get working on."

"Can't you stay a bit longer, though?" He practically begs.

"You said that half an hour ago!" I laugh.

"I know, but I really enjoy spending time with you" Louis smiles at me.

His smile is so gorgeo-

"Awwwww!" A voice squeals from behind me.

I whip around to see Lia smiling and holding her hands to her heart.

"You guys are so cute!" She says clapping her hands excitedly.

I blush slightly.

I don't why I blush, to be honest.

I mean, obviously I have feelings for Louis and I'm pretty sure he has the same for me but nothing is official or anything.

So why do I blush when I hear people talk about me and Louis?

Maybe it is the fact that we both have feelings for each other? Maybe it's the fact that we pretty much are in a relationship we just never admit it?

Maybe I'm being wrong about this whole thing and Louis really hates me!

No. He likes me. Right?

Ugh. Life can be confusing sometimes, kids.

"Kaia?"

I shake my head and blink a couple times before saying, "Sorry? I didn't catch that."

"I said have a safe trip home" Louis repeats, smiling once more.

I love Louis' smile.

I love the way his face gets so bright, his stunning blue eyes are sort of washed away into the raising of his cheeks. And I love his dimples. Though small, they are still there. They are the sign of a genuine smile.

"Thanks" I reply, returning the favour and sending him a smile.

"Talk to me later, yeah?" he says.

"Of course" I say. "Oh and thanks, by the way."

"For what?"

"For letting me stay in your room!"

"Oh! No problem."

"See you later."

Another flash of his smile before he closes the door and I head for the car.

Harry POV

"Have they left yet?" I ask desperately, running into the porch.

It looks like Louis had just closed the door as he was still there and there was bits of snow on the rug, signalling that the door had recently been open.

"Yeah, they just pulled out of the driveway" Louis replies. "Why?"

"I wanted to talk to Lia" I say dismally.

"Can we talk about what happened yesterday?" Louis says.

"What happened yesterday?" I ask, pretending to be confused, though I know what he's gonna say.

"When the girls first came over yesterday..." he starts. "And you told Lia she was beautiful."

"Oh, that? Pssh, that's nothing" I say, flicking my wrist.

"Harry. Lying isn't nice."

"I don't see what there is to talk about!"

"Harry... You looked at Lia in a way I haven't seen you look at someone in a long time."

"She's a really charming girl" I say, daydreaming slightly.

Lia is perfect.

She's sweet, she's kind, she's funny, she's an amazing friend to Kaia, and on top of everything, she's beautiful!

I really could not ask for anything more in a girl.

"I... I..." I start saying but can't finish.

"Come on Harold" Louis says in a supportive tone. "Spit it out."

"I- I think I like her."

Louis' expression becomes really strange.

It's like he's supportive of me confessing my admiration for Lia but at the same time he looks like he wants to say something he can't.

"You okay, Lou?" I ask cautiously because I've never seen this expression on anyone before.

Louis nods his head but keeps his strange face.

"Is something wrong?"

He shakes his head, continuing to not say anything.

"Louis, what's wrong?"

"Nothing" he replies.

"Obviously it's something" I say. "You're acting strange."

"Am I?" He questions.

"Yeah" I reply. "As soon as I mentioned that I liked Lia your face made this really strange expression."

"Harry..."

"Louis..."

"I have to tell you something..."

"What is it?"

His next words break my heart into seemingly a million pieces.

"She has a boyfriend."

A/N: OUUUUU CLIFFHANGER!

Sorry about that, but every great story needs to have a cliffhanger at some point, right?

How did you like Harry's POV?

Should I do more POVs instead of just Kaia and Louis?

Also, OMG LOUIS IS 24! LIKE WTF????? HE WAS 18 WHEN HE AUDITIONED OMG!

THEY GROW UP SO FAST OMG!

(I realize that Louis is older than me but still).

I hope you guys enjoyed this special update in honour of his birthday:)

Talk to you later,
Claire
