Harry POV

"Louis," Liam says, walking through the door after being out into town most of the day.

He carries something like food from the grocery store, a bag from the CD store, and a few other things. But what catches my eye, is the magazine he's reading while he walks.

He seems so captivated by it.

I wonder which one of us is in it now.

"Yeah?" Louis asks, looking up to Liam.

"When I was out today, I saw this," Liam replies, tossing Louis the magazine. "You're on the cover again. Congrats."

Louis studies the cover of the magazine. I can see it a bit from where I'm standing. It's a picture of Louis and Kaia in the parking lot of the park, holding themselves, waiting for Liam to pick them up. Louis' eyebrows scrunch inwards.

"This was a week ago!" he exclaims. "How do they put this stuff in magazines so quickly?"

"It's crazy, man," Niall shakes his head, taking another bite of the burger he was eating. "Do they have lives?"

"I'm not sure at this point," Harry replies.

"'Louis Tomlinson and girlfriend, Kaia Tyler, spending time together in local park,'" Louis reads the title of the magazine cover. "Well it's not as bad as some of the other ones. But it's still creepy how they're always taking pictures of us."

"Yeah," Liam nods in agreement.

"Remember that time where they thought Lou-" Niall started to say but was interrupted by Liam jumping him and throwing a hand over his mouth.

Louis looks confused.

I was confused at first but I remembered what Niall was going to say. Trust me, there's a reason we aren't telling Louis.

"What?" Louis asks. "What did they think about me?"

"Nothing!" Liam says quickly. "Nothing at all. Nope. Nothing to be worried about."

He continues rambling on, but after a while, Louis gets annoyed and demands to know what it was.

"It's nothing, really," I say, trying to calm him down. "It's just, a while ago, we saw an article making up some really stupid lies about you and we decided not to tell you so it wouldn't hurt your feelings."

"Yeah," Niall says, gasping for air, finally released from Liam's grasp.

"But now that I know you've been keeping it from me, I want to know what it is," Louis says.

I sigh and look at Niall. In my head I'm mentally screaming at him, Why did you have to bring it up?

"Lou," Liam says, leaving Niall. "I really don't think you want to know."

"Liam," Louis says, imitating Liam. "I really think I do."

"No I think it'd be better for everyone if you didn't know," Liam shakes his head.

"But I'm all curious now!" Louis whines like a child.

"No," Niall says.

"Please?" Louis begs.

"No."

"Pretty please with a cherry on top?"

"No," Liam says sharply.

"Pleeeeeeeeeeease," Louis is near throwing a tantrum at this point.

"Oh for God's sake," Niall says, suddenly.
