ASHE HAS A CRUSH!!
1D management actually DID something with the "couple" but it wasn't hide them. They used a ship that most of the fandom liked to keep fans. They took the confortable position, the let fans to believe in straight guys or gay couple. Bears were big queerbating. Do you really think that some teenagers were smarter than a experienced management and these teens discovered how LS was closeted? And do you really think Harry and Louis just let them to do what they wanted with them? For me, it's weird.
