*Wynter's POV*

  My phone ringing is what woke me up. I sighed in annoyance and grabbed it without opening my eyes. "Hello?" I answered drowsily.

"Hey, Wynter, it's Zayn."

"Really'" I asked in mock dlsappomtment. "Thought it was George Washington" My voice was dripping with sarcasm. "Anyway, why'd you call?"

The line was quiet for a few moments. "How's she holding up?"

I sighed and stood up, walking up the stairs and into Scarlet's spare bedroom before replying. "She cried herself to sleep."

"Harry didn't kiss that girl, you know." Zayn said.

I got confused and raised an eyebrow. "That's what it looked like..." I said, my voice unsure.

"I know." he replied. "He explained that the girl wanted a hug and since she wasn't being creepy, he hugged her and at the last minute she turned her head and kissed him."

I didn't say anything as i processed what he said, seeing if it added up and made sense. It did "He went to his room as soon as we got home last night and hasn't come out yet."

"I'll go tell her that he didn't kiss that fan." I told him. "I swear they act like a couple in a fight and they aren't even dating."

He laughed, "I know. Call me back after you tell Scarlet." I agreed and hung up. I walked back downstairs and made some coffee so that Scarlet would be fully awake when I told her I made two cups and put french vanllla creamer in each. I walked into the living room and shook her awake.

She lifted her head and said, "Wynter? What's wrong?"

"We need to talk." She scrunched her eyebrows together in confusion, but nodded and followed me in the kitchen.

I handed her a mug "Thanks" she said, leaning against the counter and taking a drink. I decided the best way to tell her would be to get straight to the point so that she couldn't get sad before I could tell her.

"He didn't kiss that girl," I said quickly. Her expression went from confused, to angry, to sad, to stubborn and hopeless.

"l know what I saw," she whispered. "No matter how much I wish it wasn't true, I know what I saw."

l sighed and rubbed my eyes. "That fan tricked him, Scarlet. She asked for a hug and at the last second turned to plant a big one right on his lips just as you came into view." She flinched

"Wynter, I'm facing the truth and you need to, too. He played me like a drum and I let him. Nothing else to it." I saw her eyes getting wet as she walked out of the kitchen and to god knows where. I put my face in my hands and sat on the kitchen floor. Why did she have to be so damn stubborn when she got hurt? I pulled my phone out of my pocket and called Zayn.

"She was to stubborn to listen." I said as soon as he picked up. "She's set on thinking he played with her heart." l heard mumbling in the background.

"Wait, Harry!" Liam yelled.

Zayn sighed and said, "He came out just as you said that." l groaned and pulled my knees up to my chest.

"What do we do?" I asked. We can't just have them be like this when they obviously like each other. Stupid fan messing up everything."

He laughed and then got serious "Be ready in an hour. l'll come pick you up and we can think of a way to fix things over lunch." l smiled to myself. Was this a lunch date? No. He doesn't want someone who is broken and screwed up. Let alone, you're not even pretty, a voice in my head said. And just like that, the smile was gone. He didn't know that l was broken though.....You still are.

"Alright. See you then" I hung up and went to go get ready with that voice quietly haunting me the whole time.

*1 1/2 hours later*

Wynter's outfit: (Pic Above)

Zayn and I were sitting in a diner sharing a plate of fries trying to think of a way to get Scarlet and Harry to make up, And hopefully get together. "What if he aplogizes on live TV?" Zayn asked.

I shook my head. "That might make her feel obligated to forgive him just so that he doesn't look foolish. What if we just give her time to see sense?"

"That won't work," Zayn said as he bit into a fry "He likes her too much to do that. He won't be able to go on for that long without seeing her and staying partially sane."

I tilted my head a raised an eyebrow. "You make it sound as if he's in love with Scarlet."

He took a deep breath and said, "He is."

My mouth dropped open and my eyes bulged out of my head "Why didn't he ask her out?!"

"He was afraid he'd break her heart." he explained. As soon as he said that everything popped into my head. "What are you planning?" he asked.

"We're gonna trick Scarlet." I said. He raised an eyebrow, indicating for me to explain "We need to get them together and Scarlet is a sucker for romance. Harry really needs to impress her with something romantic in order for her to realize that it wasn't his fault."

Zayn smiled slighly, "That shouldn't be a problem because he's a big romantic. But how are you going to get Scarlet to see him?"

I grinned mischieviously and grabbed another french fry. "Like I said, we're gonna trick Scarlet."
