I sat on the couch for hours, staring at the TV that wasn't even on.

I couldn't stop thinking about Lou. Why was it so bad that I know about his stepfather? I understand that he probably doesn't want anyone to know, but it can't be so bad that he was actually going to slap me for it.

I was trying to decide if it would be appropiate to read more of Lou's journal. He left it on the table by the couch. I picked it up and turned to the second page. It said:

" January 14, 2005

Today I got home from school and my mum was sitting on the sofa crying. My stepfather stood in the kitchen cooking. I asked him what happened and he laughed and said my mum was being a bad girl. He fucking hit my mum. It's okay to touch me, but not my mum. When I told him not to touch mum he slapped me and pinned me to the floor. He did the same thing he always did to me, but this time in front of mum. My sisters were thankfully not home. Mum screamed and cried as I was being pinned to the floor and raped. It was honestly one of the worst days ever.


Louis Tomlinson"

I couldn't read anymore. I can't believe Lou actually had to go through that. Nobody should have to go through that kind of pain. I have so much sympathy for people that get abused. Hopefully my dad never abused me.

If I ever meet Lou's stepfather I swear to God I'm going to kill him. I tried not to imagine Lou being raped.

I set the journal down and looked at the clock. It was 7:00. Lou usually gets home at 5:00. I grabbed my phone and scrolled through my contacts until I found Lou's number. I called, and it only ringed a few times before Lou picked up. There was loud music in the background and I could hear Lou yelling at someone.

'Hello? Lou? Where are you?"

"Haha hold on Josh! It's Harry! I'm at the pub! I'm with-"

After that all I heard was shouts of laughter and then he hung up. So he's most likely drunk at a pub somewhere.

I sat on the couch watching TV and waited for Lou. He didn't get home until midnight. I was almost asleep until I heard the door open.

I sat up quickly and saw Lou standing at door. He had bags under his eyes, he had dried blood under his nose, and he looked like he would fall over any minute

"What happened?!" i said, rushing over to help him stand.

"Harry I'm fine!" I could barely understand him. His words were slurred together.

I put my arm around him so I could help him walk to the couch.

"Come on Lou, I think you need to-"

"No I'm fucking fine!" He said, pushing my arm off him.

"What fucking happened!"

"I saw your ex and-"

Before he could finish, he leaned over to the trash and threw up.

He limped to the couch and layed down.

"You what?!"

"Shut up Harry! We'll talk tomorrow!"

He shut his eyes and turned his body away from me. I wonder if he's stubborn like this all the time, or only when he's drunk.

I sighed and walked upstairs. I took my pants off and layed in bed. I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow.
