Liam's P.O.V.

I hated those bastards. They were always trying to make Niall's life so much harder than it needed to be. They were carelessly trying to harm an innocent soul. I wanted to do more than just punch Louis, but chances are I would get in big trouble.

I walked away after seeing because it hurt. I didn't need that right now.

I decided to continue walking to my first class and let everything that happened fall behind me. I couldn't focus on this now. I have an education to get and it won't do me any good to think about how much I love Niall. I just have to take things one step at a time. If I do that, everything will be okay.

Everything will be okay. I will be fine. Stay calm Liam.

I walked in my class and tried my best not to cry over what I had witnessed.

Harry's P.O.V.

Why was Liam acting so distant and cold when he saw me?

This question continued to circle in my head, because I wasn't sure why he was acting that way. I thought we were good friends and that we were getting along. I hope he doesn't think that I had anything to do with Niall getting hurt. That's the last thing I would do. Hurt Niall. The thought disgusts me.

I couldn't continue worrying about this though. I had a Niall to worry about.

"Hey Niall, are you alright?"

"Yeah Harry, I'm fine."

He didn't sound fine to me, but he looked liked he didn't want me to ask anymore questions. I had to simply make sure that he is okay, because that's all that matters.

Niall and I walked to our first period class as the bell rang. I sat in my seat and my mind immediately went back to Niall. I couldn't help but wonder why anyone would treat Niall like crap. He was the sweetest, most kind human being. To see him there on the floor looking helpless was tearing at my heart.

Why did Louis and Zayn bully Niall like that? Why can't they leave him alone? He's not doing anything to hurt them. All Niall wants is to be left alone and to simply have the right to be able to enjoy life. He isn't trying to harm anyone; he just wants to be happy. Meeting Niall completely changed my life. He makes me smile every time I see him. He's sweet and kind, always thinking of others instead of himself.

I know that Niall is also really smart. He seems to casually low it off like it's nothing, but he's actually one of the smartest human beings I've met. I had always known him for being quite intelligent. He and Liam were both some of the smartest people at our school. Speaking of Liam...

Why did Liam walk away? He didn't stay as soon as I can, which was weird because he and Niall were best friends. Niall and Liam, Liam and Niall. That's how it was, and I was glad that Niall had a close friend that he could always be around. A friend that seemed to love Niall more than he loved himself.

Wait.

A friend that seemed to love Niall more than he loved himself.

Did Liam love Niall? The way I do?

No, it couldn't be; they're just very close friends. Almost what you would call parabatai, the Jem to his Will. But Liam couldn't be in love with Niall. I highly doubt it.

See Harry, this is what happens when you overreact to everything-

"Harry? Are you going to answer the question?"

The entire class looked at me,and at that moment, I knew that I was screwed.

"Sorry", I said, "this question is a little confusing, could you please repeat that?"
