Dark clouds were brighten by the sun



Louis fell asleep on me. He just looks like a little kitten but I know if I told him that he would throw a tantrum about how he is not a kitten but a predator. I couldn’t fall asleep. Not that I wasn’t tired but I was just thinking and looking at clock every five minutes. It’s 9:30 and Liam texted me that the management called him and that now it’s my duty to wake up Louis.

“Louis.” I say shaking him to wake up but nothing happened. Maybe I need to be more loud.

“Louis wake up!” Shaking him more and now he is waking up.

“Hmm?” He hummed as a sign that he is awake and listening.

“It’s 9:35 we need to get ready. Liam got a call from management.” I softly say to him.

“What do they want now?” He asks getting more angry hoping that not at me.

“That we need to get ready, some paparazzi will be here too.” I say in a sad tone.

“You are kidding, right?” Sorry Louis but I'm not. It makes me sad that the management control our lives more and more. I mean all I wanted for birthday was to be with my family and friends.

“No. We need to get ready so Liam doesn’t drag us.” I threaten him with Liam. Trust me when Liam is angry it feels like disappointed dad.

"Alright let's get ready." He says as he getting up from bed as me. As I'm walking to bathroom to brush my teeth again he calls me. "Harry?" He says my name and I turn around.

"Yes?" I'm curious.

"Happy Birthday." He says as he hugs me. I return it and I can feel his face in my neck.

"Thank you Louis." I say hoping he heard me. I'm glad that my friends can be even when my family couldn't.

"It's alright now let's go get ready I don't need Liam to act like a dad." He says laughing. He doesn't even know that he helped me right now so much.

"Alright I'm going to brush my teeth then get dressed." I say walking away. I'm nervous yes but at the same time I say to myself that it's just another party.

The party already started but I'm still in my room nervously pacing cause there is so much people. Yes I'm nervous and it's not like concert, this is different. I want to go there but at the same time no. That doesn't make any sense. I need Zayn, I need him to get me out of here. It doesn't take more than two minutes to Zayn to get here.

"Harry mate you alright?" He asks.

"I-I." I start breathing rapidly, I can hear my heartbeat in my ears. I'm having an anxiety attack, I don't want to. I need to stop it.

"Harry, Harry look at me. Take a deep breaths. Okay? Copy me." He says. Okay deep breaths. "C'mon Harry inhale, hold, exhale." Deep breaths. Deep breaths. Deep breaths.

"I'm okay, I'm okay now. Thank you." I say. I'm more calm. God this was so embarrassing, I'm being weak. I hate being weak.

"It's okay. Do you want to talk about it?" He asks. What did I do to deserve such a friend.

"I-I no, I'm sorry I just-" I start but he cuts me off.

"It's okay mate. Let's get going." He says as he motions me to follow him. I'm so glad Zayn came. I don't know what would I do without him.

We get to the party and everyone was looking at me and singing for my birthday. I'm glad I didn't have their attention for long. I shook everyone's hand and thanked them for coming. Sometimes I meant it, sometimes no. Now I'm standing and talking with boys.
"Uh Uh." Liam starts. This can't be good.
"What?" Louis and Niall ask in union.
"Simon is coming." He says masking it with champagne into his lips as drinking it. Again this can't be good.
"My boys! Harry happy birthday!" Simon says with fake smile on his face.
"Thank you." I return fake smile.
"How you doin' boys?" He says to them. I have a bad feeling about this, like a something bad is gonna happen.
"We are good." Liam and Niall say together. Louis is looking at him as he wants to kill him and Zayn is just unbothered by his presence. I just hope he won't get under my skin like last time.
"I have a suggestion." Shit who is going to be victim now. Last time it was Louis with Eleanor like they were 'dating'. "For you Harry." Shit! Shit! Shit!
"What is it now?" I say with venom and glaring daggers at him with my eyes. I feel Louis grabbing my arm as a sign to not get angry.
"Isn't it lovely. What a great couple you two are making!" He says with fake smile but venom in his eyes. I feel sorry that he is dragging Louis into this but I'm not backing down.
"Answer the fucking question." I say calmly but warningly.
"Well, well as you wish. You have a few stunts with Taylor Swift before tour." I have what with who! In my entire life I didn't want to strangle someone as I do now. I should have known something is gonna happen.
"Fine. What do I have to do?" Outside I look calm but in inside I'm planning his murder.
"Just some walking, holding hands, maybe even a kiss." The first two are okay but kiss that's too much. I still don't understand why. First he wants us single for fans and then we have to do this stunts.
"I still don't understand why." I say.
"You don't need to know. Just do as I say." Is he my fucking father or what. I would love to tell him what is on my mind but I know that then he would make boys do something like that. I can't have that, they have already so much. I always pick someone over me.
"Fine. Now let us enjoy my party will you." That is the most nicest way how I can to tell him to fuck off. He looks at me and grins at me as walking away.
"Harry you don't need to do that if you don't want to." Of course Liam is still trying to find a solution for our situation
"I have to. It's time to take the bullet." I say as drinking the champagne. I'm angry at him so much.
"I'm sorry Harry." Niall says. I'm glad they don't make him to do anything drastic.
"It's Niall. Don't worry about it. I'm okay." I tried to sound convincing but they didn't believe me. "What do you say on football on midnight?" I say with smirk on my face. They instantly nod with smile on their faces. I'm so glad I can ditch this circus.
