“Is Harry coming round today?” you excitingly asked your brother as you soon as you heard him hang up the phone.
“Yeah, why? Don’t go making a mug of yourself again (y/n), Harry’s my bestfriend and i don’t really appreciate you drooling over him every single time he comes over” he sternly snapped back, obviously getting angry with the mention of you and him. You just rolled your eyes and gave him a dirty look before running back up stairs to fix yourself up.
Louis was your older brother, by 3 years. You wouldn’t think he was older sometimes, he was so immature, which was good most of the time. He always got angry and threw strops though, which you certainly wouldn’t expect a 20 year old to do. But, he was an amazing brother and you wouldn’t trade him for the world. Yeah, you always fought but that’s what brother and sister do at the end of the day. Right?
He very rarely got angry so quickly, it would usually take something quite big or serious to make Louis go mad but, every time you or someone would mention your crush on Harry or you and him together, he would always go mental. He couldn’t stand the thought of his little sister and best friend being together.
But, what made him most angry, like, seriously mad was when Harry got involved and played back, joking here and there about you two being together, making inappropriate comments towards you which you kind of thought he meant most times. You two had a connection and he makes gestures that he ‘wants’ you whenever you’re in the same room but you wouldn’t dare tell Louis that. Oh no.
“Alright mate?” you heard his voice. Oh my god, how you loved his voice. It seriously gave you this sort of adrenalin deep inside each time it echoed the house.
You fixed your hair one last time and walked down the stairs, not trying to hard. You looked casual, wearing some comfy little shorts and a top of Lou’s, which was extremely over-sized on you. But, that was the whole point. Harry loves when a girl wears clothes to big for her. So, that was what it was.
“Harry, can you stop that please? That’s my little sister” Louis rudely said to Harry as Harry stared at your bum as you walked over to the kitchen. Them two sitting on the sofa in the living room.
Harry just laughed, which made you smile.
“Haha, sorry man.” Harry laughed back, smirking at you as he looked you up and down.
“It’s alright Lou, god sake, why’d you have to be so overprotective?” you scrunched your nose, frowning your eyebrows as Harry sat back, waiting for yet another argument to happen between you both. Like it did every day.
“No, it’s not alright (y/n). I don’t exactly want you coming downstairs when Harry’s here dressed in near to nothing, i don’t give a shit whether you like him or not… HE WILL NEVER LIKE YOU COS YOU’RE MY LITTLE SISTER SO PISS OFF BACK TO YOUR ROOM AND STAY IN THERE” Louis was screaming at you now, Harry’s expression on his face turn to fright as Louis’ voice got louder and the tears started to pour down your face quicker.
You said nothing, you were so upset that your own brother just did that to you in front of Harry, the one you love. You weren’t afraid to say it either. Everyone knew by now… it was so obvious anyway.
You run up the stairs whilst screaming and sobbing, hearing the room down stairs go silent. You stopped and looked around your room, going over to the mirror. You wiped your mascara and put on some sweatpants, ready to run down stairs and straight out the door.
Louis and you were home alone for the whole weekend as your parents were away, he was told to babysit you and keep you safe, like you would expect. It was only friday night and you were in tears already. You weren’t staying here, you needed to clear your head before getting yourself too worked up.
“LOU, IT ISN’T LIKE THAT AT ALL! SHE’S NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO FEELS LIKE THAT, SHE’S NOT LITTLE, SHE’S ONLY A YEAR YOUNGER THAN I AM MAN. CAN’T YOU SEE IT?” Harry was shouting… Louis shouting back.
You stopped and just looked at them both standing face to face, fighting over you. “I’M SICK OF THIS!” you screamed, getting their attention.
You didn’t hear the rest of the argument cos’ you walked straight out the door, into the freezing cold and rain. Not expecting Louis or Harry to come after you.
Outside by yourself, it seemed so peaceful. It looked so peaceful. This is what you needed; time by yourself.
*(New message) Lou:
“(y/n), where are you? it’s 10pm and me and Harry are getting worried now. You’re outside in a bloody storm by yourself because of this stupid argument. Me and Harry worked it out, he’s still staying over. I’m sorry for shouting at you, i understand a bit better now! Please, just come home so we can all sort this out together? No shouting. I promise. X”
A sudden smile appeared on your face. Your phone was the only light on at this point and you weren’t going to lie to yourself, he was right and you were more scared than they were.
You didn’t bother replying to his text, you needed a few more minutes by yourself. Yeah, you were freezing cold, wet, shivering and alone but, it was to clear your head. It was letting you think things through.
After all, you weren’t that far from the house. Only on the step that was situated a few doors down.
“(Y/N)?” you heard his voice again, and it gave you a funny feeling in your stomach.
“(Y/N)?!” he shouted your name again, loud enough you were sure the whole street could hear him.
You didn’t bother replying to that either, as much as you wanted to.
“Oh my god, (y/n)! Come here babe” Harry turned the corner to your attention, you looking up at him before bursting into tears once again.
Harry sat down next to you on the step, wrapping his arms around you and kissing your forehead.
“What’s the matter?! It’s all sorted!” he smiled, looking into your eyes, wiping away your tears. You stood up from his warm arms and pushed your fingers through your wet hair, ready to just let everything out.
“What’s the matter?! WHAT’S THE MATTER?! I LOVE YOU HARRY, DON’T YOU GET IT? NO, COS’ NO ONE DOES. NO ONE EVER DOES. I’VE LOVED YOU SINCE THE START AND I CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT, AND THAT FUCKING HURTS COS ALL I AM IS LOU’S LITTLE SISTER WHO HARRY WON’T LOVE BAC-” you were suddenly cut off by his lips crashing down onto yours, tugging on your bottom lip as his hands moved down to your waist, gripping tightly… almost making sure you didn’t go anywhere.
“Louis is going to go mad. He’s going to kill you… and me for that matter” you smirked as the long kiss ended, wrapping your arms up around his neck as his still held on to your waist.
“Don’t worry baby, i’ve explained everything to him. That’s why only I came out to find you, he told me too. He understands that we both love each other and he’s fine with it, he’ll have to be cos’ i’m not letting you go now” he smiled, kissing your nose and then lips once again. You bit on your lip as a smile re-appeared on your wet face.
Wait. Did Harry just tell you he loves you?
“You what?” your jaw dropped as he pulled you into his chest before walking you back to your house, his arms keeping you safe.
“Yes, silly. I love you and i have for a long time, and now that Louis understands and is fine with it, i thought you should know. Our relationship wouldn’t really work if i didn’t tell you.” he teased, as if he was implying that you were a bit slow at understanding things.
You just giggled as you wrapped your arms around his waist, able to feel his abs through his wet shirt.
You both walked home, which wasn’t far at all. Holding onto each other all the way.
You were so glad that Louis understood and you were so happy you and Harry were finally a couple, and you didn’t have to hide it.
“Oh, and by the way. Did Lou mention i’m staying round tonight?” he looked down at you before winking. A smirk unforced onto both your faces.
Wow, this night was about to get a whole lot more interesting… you thought as Harry grabbed your face, kissing you passionately and begging for entrance which you gave to him, your hands looping his curls around your finger as you both stumbled into the house, slamming the door behind you.
“Nu-uh! Not in front of me, save it for later thank you very much!” you were interrupted by Louis protesting, smiling at you both as you pulled away from each other and looked at him, him then opening his arms and pulling you in for a group hug.
“Hear that (y/n)? Save it for later Louis said! Don’t worry mate, i will” Harry teased him, knowing making sexual remarks to Louis about his little sister would really push his buttons.
“Prick!” Louis laughed, punching him on the arm, making Harry fall back onto the sofa as Louis bundled on top of him straight after; play fighting with him.
“Right, i’m off to bed!” Louis stood up, fixing his messy hair as Harry sat up right.
“Same!” you answered back, slightly nodding your head towards Harry to imply coming up to join you. Him obviously agreeing with a wink before standing up and chasing you up the stairs into the bedroom.
“Oh, and not too much noise please man! I need sleep to you know!” he joked before shutting his and your door shut as Harry chased you all the way onto your bed.
“I love you” Harry whispered… hovering over you as yours and his deep breaths morphed together.
“I love you too” you whispered into his ear before tugging on it with your teeth. Sending shivers down his back.
