I listened to Little Mix’s Secret Love Song and I really wanted to incorporate it in this one shot.. So why the fuck not.
cross one another from across the red carpet, a small smile making its way onto
my lips but vanishes instantly when I receive none in return, Harry turning his
head without a second glance, grinning at the blonde woman who sticks a
microphone underneath his nose. I feel Sally squeeze my elbow as if to tell me
she’s sorry for me, but she doesn’t know how much it stings, although I know we
have to be this way. We should already be glad we received an invitation of the
release party of ‘Made in the A.M.’, although I really do believe it is because
of Sally and her friendship with Niall. And I truly believe that because of
Sally and Niall, One Direction asked us to sing a song on their party, along
with lots of other new up and coming bands that resided in London at the
you’ll be with him.” Sally whispers in my ear and I want to visibly cringe at
her words, although I know I shouldn’t, so I put on my best fake smile for the
cameras in front of me and pose with my three other bandmates, smiling and
laughing at the little jokes the journalists make. I answer a few questions
about how much we enjoy being in London, and being here, invited by one of the biggest bands to exist in this era, as
well as some personal questions about stuff they had seen me do around London.
I only like to walk around and explore, it’s not like I actually do exciting
things that would be nice for the paparazzi’s paycheck. They just make up
exciting things and the only thing I had done was pet a dog that ran towards me
that one time. But if they want to help our careers by speaking good of me, let
“I wish you
a lovely night Y/n. Wonderful dress you’re wearing.” I nod my head and thank
the woman from some gossip channel, my arm linking with Sally’s to pull her
away from the cameras and into the venue unnoticed. “I can’t do this.” I murmur
as soon as we are out of sight, my fingers almost crushing her frail hand as I
try to let all my anger and sorrow out through the squeezing.
“Auw, let go Y/n. I understand this sucks but you were the one that didn’t want
your relationship plastered all over the media. Plus, you’ll see him at his
“And now I
want it plastered.” I huff, crossing my arms over my chest and Sally raises her
eyebrows in an amused manner, a deep, realizing sigh leaving my lips as I
uncross my arms again, letting them drop next to my body. “No, I don’t want
that.” Sally nods her head as both her hands rub over the exposed flesh of my
upper arms, my hands rubbing together nervously.
“I just want to shout it from the rooftops so I can smile at and kiss him
whenever the fuck I want.” I breathe as I rest my flat hand against my
forehead, closing my eyes briefly as I try to drum out all of the loud chatter
around me, the music already blasting inside.
alright?” Lena walks around the corner and flies towards us when she spots both
Sally and I, her arm draped around my shoulder, Anne following Lena suit after.
I shrug my shoulders. I knew it would be like this, the only thing Harry and I
could exchange in public were praises of each other’s work, or the simple
conversation you would have to have to thank the host for inviting you to their
release party. “I knew, but it still stings.”
it hurts Harry too, Y/n.” Anne smiles sympathetically my way, all three girls
engulfing me in a tight hug, an immediate smiles making its way onto my lips. “I
am very lucky to have you as my mates. Let’s just enjoy the evening, mingling.”
I curl my arm around Sally’s again, hoping she’d stay close to my side so I
would actually enjoy myself tonight.
is packed with people, most of them famous in one way or another, others family
members of the boys or close friends. I recognize some of the people here, but
nowhere nearly all. “What time did they want us to perform?” I whisper to Sally
as she takes two glasses of champagne from the waiter, myself smiling at the
man gratefully as I grasp one of the glasses and take an immediate sip. “In an
hour. We have half an hour to mingle now. Anyone you want to see?”
“No one I’m
allowed to speak to..” I trail off, my eyes catching Harry talking to a
beautiful brunette, the glass still resting against my lips, fingers clenching
the stem of the glass as I see him laugh at something she had said. “Jealousy
doesn’t match your dress.” Sally chuckles as she turns us around, searching for
someone to talk to so I’d stop staring at my
boyfriend from afar.
“Every color goes with black, Sal.” I roll my eyes as she pulls me towards
Niall who is speaking to Liam, both of them laughing at something Niall had
Liam! Lovely to see you.” Sally greets both males and I just smile, giving the
appropriate kisses on the cheeks of both boys before I step back again. “Thank
you for this opportunity, boys.” I state. I am truly grateful that they want
us, who are far from worldly famous like 1D, and are helping us to obtain more
fans across the globe. “We should be thanking you.” Liam states seriously, and
I immediately furrow my eyebrows as I stare at him. Niall and Sally are
laughing besides me, Niall always tells the most disgusting jokes which are to
you have to thank me? I haven’t done anything.” I set my empty glass on the
platter of a waiter passing by, declining when he offers me another one. “You
changed Harry, so that’s why I’m thanking you.” Liam smiles sweetly, almost as
if he expects me to get it sooner or later what he is talking about. I nod my
head, squeezing his biceps before Lena and Anne appear behind us, reminding us
we have to preform soon. “You’ll have to excuse us.” Sally grins guiltily and
Niall nods his head. “Of course, of course. Go kill it up there.”
be a problem, Y/n’s writing goes through marrow and bone. The best song she’s
ever written.” Sally praises me and I can feel that awkward smile on my lips as
I scratch my neck.
“All great songs come from the heart.” Liam nods his head as if he knows how I
feel. Sometimes I don’t get Liam. He is always so vague when he speaks to me,
but I’m sure he knows way more than he lets on. That’s kind of why I like him
We get the
proper introductions from some guy I know by face, but you’ll have to kill me
to get his name out of me. We thank him sweetly, taking our places on stage as
the lights dim and the music starts. The first spot lands on Sally, since she
starts the song and her eyes close as she focuses on the words that she knows
mean the world to me. When you hold me in the street, and you
kiss me on the dancefloor
For a split
second I am petrified as my spot flicks on, the bright light blinding me from
the room but with an unnoticeable shake of my head I raise the microphone to my
lips and for the rest of the song, it’s my heart that’s singing and not my
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t it be like that?
‘Cause I’m yours
We keep behind closed doors
Every time I see you, I die a little more
Stolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls
It’ll never be enough
My eyes are
closed during most of the performance, only opening when I know I have to walk
around on the stage towards my band mates, Sally granting me with a nod when we
near the end and our voices chime together through the large venue like a
Why can’t I say that I’m in love?
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? Cause I’m yours
a step back and leaves me to end the song, my voice cracking as I sing the last
Why can’t we be like that?
Wish we could be like that
fills the venue and I grin at my friends, Lena winking at me as we make our way
off stage. “The most emotional and best
performance we have ever given, kudos to us!” Anne weaves her arms around Lena’s
and my neck, hauling both of us into her chest as we gibber like teenagers.
“I could use an ice cold cocktail right now.” Sally sing-songs, and we all
cheer at her words as we walk across the room to the bar. I’m stopped in my
tracks by James Corben, who is almost dancing on his spot while he grins at me,
which draws a genuine smile from my lips as well.
James Corben, such a pleasure to meet you. I’m a huge fan!” James steps completely
in front of me, stealing me away from the girls and I nod my head, telling them
to go ahead and I’ll catch up with them later. “Oh no, my pleasure! I am
addicted to your carpool karaoke.” I giggle, a hand in front of my mouth as
James’ eyes twinkle at my compliment.
even sweeter than I imagined. And that voice of yours..” James pretends to fan
his face and I snort, my eyes widening as I cover my mouth with both hands
before James and I both fall into a fit of chuckles. James takes two glasses of
champagne off of a waiter that’s passing by, handing me one and I nod my head
as a silent thank you. My eyes wander over to Harry again and I think he caught
me staring, because James clicks his tongue against his mouth. “Sadly he’s
“Oh, is he?”
I ask as I keep my gaze on Harry for a second longer before redirecting myself
back to the conversation I was having.
““Apparently Harry has a new mysterious
girlfriend. She makes him very happy.” He states with a lazy smile, clinking
his glass with mine and I try to appear surprised, as if I hear this news for
the first time in my life. “Oh really?” I take a sip off of the glass of
champagne, eyes glued to James face as he grins brightly. “Harry was so lonely,
like there was no life left in him.”
I furrow my
eyebrows, I never heard anything about Harry being lonely. Was he still lonely?
“That seems, somber. Why is that?” James’ hand lands on my curve of my back,
steering me away from the middle of the room to one of the tables provided at
the side so we could sit down for a minute. I was eternally grateful because my
feet are killing me right now.
“Everything he does appears in the media. Before he can even start a proper
relationship, paparazzi ruin it or link him to another woman, ending the
relationship before it started.” James shakes his head in a dismissive manner
and my heart aches for Harry, I would never understand how that must feel.
sounds horrific. I feel sorry for him.” I frown, setting my glass down as I
cross my legs over one another, resting my hands on my knee. James smiles
again, pursing his lips, taking a sip before he speaks again. “That’s the
point. Since he met this new girl, he’s full of life again, energetic, just
overall happy. I’m one hundred percent sure he isn’t lonely anymore, which is
marvelous. It’s just sad he has to keep it hidden.” Did Liam mean this when he
thanked me earlier in the evening? Did he know about Harry being lonely as
“I’m sure there’s a very good reason he doesn’t want the girl to meet his more famous mates, no?” I question, feeling
rather weird about talking about myself to someone who Harry considers a close
reminds me of him. Those stolen moments when the curtains drop, as you sing,
will never be enough. It kills him that he can’t share his love with his fans
or friends, just because of his status.” James shakes his head again and I don’t
know if he notices, but he makes my heart ache more and more for Harry with
every word that leaves his lips. “I know how he feels then.” I chuckle dryly,
everyone in the room knew from the announcement of the song that I had written
it with help from Sally.
an amazing woman like you has to bat the men away from her.” James laughs
heartily as his hand rests on my wrist, giving it a tiny squeeze before he
grasps his drink again. I laugh along with him, squeezing my eyes shut and
shaking my head at his words. Our laughter is cut short though when a certain
person makes an appearance, his hand landing on James’ back as his eyes flicker
to me for a split second. “It seems really
fun here. Hi James.” Harry nods his head towards James and he slaps Harry’s
chest lightly, bidding his hello towards my secret boyfriend.
have to meet Y/n. Not only the voice of an angel, but even more charming than
you are.” James winks at me and my eyes widen as the blush creeps onto my
cheeks. We never talked about what we would do if we would supposedly be
introduced to one another. Do I pretend? Or can I say we’ve met before? “So you’re
trying to steal my James away from me huh?” Harry grins and winks at me when James
doesn’t notice, a bright smile etching its way onto my lips as we keep each other’s
would never let my James litter
around like this.” I motion to the man we’re talking about and James gasps,
Harry raising his hand to his chest as he feigns mock hurt.
“Then I guess I’ll have to admit defeat.” Harry bows down for me and I laugh,
hand covering my mouth at his cheekiness while I shake my head. James stands to
his feet, winking once more in my direction. “Harry, I have to go talk to
Cassandra. Haven’t seen her in ages. I’ll see you later.” He pats Harry on the
back and waves towards me before blowing a kiss in my direction.
I raise to
stand on my feet as well, dusting my floor length dress off before I stand to
full height, still a head shorter than Harry. “Thank you for giving us that
“We have to talk about that song tonight Y/n. I have a few questions.” Harry
furrows his eyebrows and I raise my hand to rub over my elbow, trying to avoid
his gaze but it’s no use. I’ll always be drawn to those intense green eyes.
“Go have fun, I’ll see you tonight, right?”
Harry questions as I grasp my glass which I discarded on the table again. I nod
my head and give him the tiniest of smiles, behind him Sally waving and giving
me a thumbs up, a grin breaking out from her stupid behaviour.
course. I’m gonna go to Sally.” I nod my head and am about to pass his when his
large hand cups my upper arm, stopping me right beside him to he can whisper
into my ear.
“I’m yours.” A shiver runs up my spine at the words, as if confirming what I
had sang earlier goes for him as well. I smile, every fiber in my body
screaming to kiss him but I refrain, I wouldn’t want anyone to know it after
trying my best for the past four months to keep it hidden.
“You already know how I feel, H.” I wink at him and he lets go of me, a bright
smile on his lips, dimples popping as I slowly walk over to my friends who are
staring at me with the most stupid grins on their faces.
Seeing Anne was always something you looked forward to. She was like a second mother for you and never would you take her kindness for granted.
However, when you were sitting in her living room waiting for her to bring the tea in, you couldn’t help but feel a strange mixture of emotions. You were excited, you were happy, you were anxious and nervous. You knew that she probably would be over the moon about your engagement, but you couldn’t help but feel a tinge of fear that her reaction would be the opposite.
She walked into the room and subconsciously Harry tightened his grip on your hand, his long fingers hiding the engagement ring.
“Thank you,” you smiled softly, leaning over to grab one of the mugs, bringing it back to you and resting it on your lap carefully.
“No worries at all,” she hummed out happily, sitting on the chair that was diagonal from the couch’s left corner, leaning back with a content hum. “So what brings you two over today?” she chuckled softly, looking over in yours and Harry’s direction.
Harry smiled softly at you and shrugged his shoulders casually. “Not really, just wanted to visit you mum, is there anything wrong with that?” he teased and she rolled her eyes playfully, shaking her head.
“Never said there was love, just checking.”
You smiled to yourself and took a sip of the fruity tea, licking the excess off of your lips when you pulled the cup away.
“Well maybe there’s a little reason we came over today,” you added.
Anne looked at you and smiled widely, sitting up a little bit more. “Yeah?”
“Yeah,” Harry replied for you, biting down on his bottom lip. “Should I tell her or you?”
“You,” you grinned and kissed his cheek before turning your body to face her.
“Okay, so mum, a couple nights ago…” he started, removing his hand from over your ring. “I proposed to (Y/N) and as you might be able to tell, she said yes…” he bit his lip softly holding up your hand. “We’re getting married mum.”
She looked at you two for a moment, her eyes wide. You had just a moment of fear before the biggest and brightest smile formed on her lips. You relaxed instantly and bit your lip, your very own smile starting to shine through.
“Oh my goodness…” she breathed out, putting her hands over her mouth and you couldn’t help but let out a chuckle.
She stood up and you followed quickly, having just a second to adjust before her arms were around you, hugging you tightly. You could hear Harry let out a slight chuckle from behind you as he put his arms around both of you, kissing the top of your head.
“Are you excited?” he asked, already knowing the answer.
“This is the best news!” Anne exclaimed, pulling back with happy tears brimming her eyes. “I’m so happy for you two!” You smiled like an absolute idiot, kissing her cheek happily and pulling back. “Let me see!”
You help up your hand and let her take it, admiring the ring happily. “Harry it’s stunning…” she murmured out and looked back up at you two. “My baby’s getting married!” she exclaimed and went over to him, engulfing him up in her arms as well.
You stood back and watched, biting your lip with the largest amount of happiness you could imagine.
You were getting married, and your future mother in law was the best you could have ever asked for.
A/N: TELL ME IF YOU WANT MORE, CAUSE I AM GOING TO START A NEW SERIES.
The day was like blur, you weren’t really there; your mind was somewhere else, you couldn’t stop thinking about Louis and what he had done, you could’ve been killed today. When you were with Louis you didn’t see him as the gang leader that is running the city, you just saw a normal 24 year old, but you were bought back to reality when he started to shoot at the boys at school, you were rethinking your whole ‘relationship’ with him, if you can call it that.
You were finally in bed, you still thinking about the whole thing again, you sighed and fell asleep. Later that night you felt something touching you, you panicked; a hand over your mouth.
