"And a secret they swore to never tell has been told with them being the accessories to how it unfolds."
"I'll see you later for our dinner date." Shontelle says as she starts to walk away from Niall with a kiss on the cheek. He just nodded with a smile. Shontelle heads out of the studio and Niall turns to the other lads who were all looking at him and waves at them.
Monday morning of the second to the last week of their album making and Niall decided to finally show up to get some work done. Harry looks at him from head to toe and then goes back onto typing on his phone.
"What's up?" Niall says, trying to ignore the tension Harry was giving him. "Are we going to record anything new?"
"You are." Zayn nonchalantly replies.
"We've recorded the remaining songs except for the last one which Riley is still working on. So, yeah, we just need you to sing your part on the other two songs." Liam explains, giving a small sympathetic smile.
"Okay." Niall says with a nod.
"Speaking of Riley, where is he?" Louis says, looking at Harry. Niall noticed this, a question forming in his head.
Since when was Harry and Riley close?
"He just texted me, he's on his way up." Harry says, showing his phone to Louis.
Niall shoves his hands inside his pocket jeans and chuckles awkwardly. "Since when are you and Riley close?"
Harry looks at Niall, a smirk on his face. "Why, can't I be close to him?"
Liam clears his throat loudly, not liking Harry's tone. "Okay, so, Harry, why don't you go and see if Riley's here already so Niall can hear the new song she—" Louis hits Liam's head with his slip up, "He wrote."
Harry shrugs. "Sure." He replied as he stand up and head for the door.
Niall follows him with his gaze before looking at Zayn. "Did I miss something?"
Zayn gives him a sheepish smile and says, "Nothing?"

Harry made his way in a normal pace to the lift, thinking maybe he could catch up with Riley there. He was about to make a sharp turn when he heard someone say something that made his ears perk. Harry pushed himself to stay hidden behind the wall.
"What's your problem with me, Shontelle? I thought I've got you off my back already." It was Riley, Harry was sure of it.
"It's not my fault you're always in my way." Shontelle replied back bitterly.
Harry peaked, feeling his phone in his pocket and fishing it out. He immediately pressed the camera icon and turned into video.
"What else could you want from me, Shontelle? Or are you just really a plain bitch?" Riley snapped.
Shontelle's face flashed annoyance. "Watch what you say or I'll—"
"You'll what? Tell Jacob to file a law suit after me for pretending to be a boy? God, that card is getting old." Riley says, standing her ground. "If I don't think it's impossible, I'll think you're threatened by me."
Shontelle scoffs. "Me? Threatened by a peasant girl? Hell no."
Riley rolls her eyes and just brushes her off, passing by her to head for the hallway. Shontelle grabs her arm to stop her from walking away. Riley rolls her eyes. "What? You've got my voice and Niall, what else could you want?"
Shontelle drops her hand from holding Riley and her jaw tightened as she caught herself from acting so abruptly by her words. She stood straight and tried her best to intimidate Riley once more. She says her voice low that Harry couldn't be able to record it, "I'm just making sure that you'll stay out of my way."
Riley steps away from her, shaking her head at Shontelle's behavior and words. She walks away backwards, her eyes still lingering on Shontelle. "I think you're the only one thinking I still have a trick up my sleeve. All my cards are already on the table. Stop being paranoid."
She turns and Harry hides again behind the wall, looking at the phone in his hands, his eyes wide as he saves it.
Why did he do it?
He didn't really know. Somehow, he needed proof that something was really going on and it wasn't just his imagination.
His widened eyes trailed to Riley who stopped on her tracks as she starts to form a very scary conclusion in her head that Harry might've heard it all.
"How long have you been there?" Riley slowly and lowly asks.
Harry clears his throat, his eyes going back to normal.
It was his first instinct if he really wants to figure it out later on since his brain wasn't really working at the moment, the thoughts were jumbled.
"Just now. Liam asked me to check if you're already here." Harry says with a small forced grin on his face.
Riley nods slowly, still not sure if she could trust his words.
"You didn't happen to hear anything, did you?" Riley asks again. Harry abruptly pushed himself off of the wall and starts to walk ahead of Riley and laughs. "Hear anything? No! I just arrived!"
Riley looks at his back, trying to weigh his words and honesty.
Harry turns and this time his smile was real. "Well, come on."
Riley starts to walk, putting her suspicion and thoughts at the back of her mind.
Harry didn't look at her again, as thoughts began to form in his. This was what Riley meant about it all being too complicated…about her risking too much if she just told Niall that she was a girl.
Because if she did…
He'll find out as well that she's his Guitar Girl.
Ad Shontelle will have her head.
This was her new formed secret and again, just like the last time, he walked in on it.

Riley and Harry enter the room and the chattering stops for all the boys to look at them. Riley chuckles and gives a small wave as she walks deeper into the studio.
"What took you so long, Harry?" Liam said first. Harry clears his throat, his hands feeling cold all of a sudden. He didn't like hiding anything, especially this big of a secret.
"Uh, I got lost?" Harry tried to lie yet again.
"Lost?" Zayn says with a chuckle.
"Harry, are you alright? You seem pale?" Louis says as he walks over to Harry. Before Louis could take another step towards him, Harry pushes himself to say, "Riley, don't you have a new song to practice with Max and Jake?"
Riley looks at Harry, confusion clouding her eyes, "Uh, yeah."
Harry pushes Riley out of the studio, "Max, Jake! Go with Riley to studio B!"
"Harry, what is wrong with you?" Niall speaks up as he appears beside Louis who was just looking at Harry.
Max and Jake made their way to the exit just as Riley was out of the room. The door shuts and Harry turns around with a forced grin at Niall. "Buddy! Why don't you study the songs you need to record inside the booth?"
"Why are you all giddy and weird all of a sudden?" Louis questions, amusement dancing in his eyes.
Harry ignores him as he makes his way towards Niall to push him as well inside the booth. Before he could reach Niall the door opens behind Harry and Riley pops her head. "I need to give you your lyrics to the new song!"
Harry hurriedly grabs the papers from Riley and pushes her head out, locking the door in the process. He heaves a loud sigh and turn to Niall. Niall puts his hands up and says, "Okay, mate. I'm going, just give me my lyrics."
Harry hands the paper to Niall. Niall makes his way inside the booth and Harry immediately went to the controls, checking that Niall won't hear them, once he talks.
He turns to face the expectant looks on Zayn, Liam and Louis, who was now seated next to Zayn.
"Care to explain your odd behavior, Styles?" Liam says, in a tone he only uses when he goes into Daddy Direction Mode.
Harry takes a seat on the spinning black leather chair in front of the controllers and faces the lads, turning his back on the booth's glass. "You would not believe what I just found out!"
"That Riley's a girl?" Louis says with a chuckle. Harry glares at him before saying, "I know that already!"
"What is it, Harry?" Zayn says, interrupting their childish antics.
Harry looks at them, his eyes filled with honesty. He takes out his phone and presses a few buttons before showing it to the others.
With a huge grin, he says, "Riley's Guitar Girl."
The video plays.
"What else could you want from me, Shontelle? Or are you just really a plain bitch?"
"Shontelle, found out about her…before all of us." Zayn mutters, disbelief in his face. "How could that happen?"
"Watch what you say or I'll—"
"She was right under our nose and yet we didn't know." Liam adds, guilt from not trying to find out first overwhelms him.
"You'll what? Tell Jacob to file a law suit after me for pretending to be a boy? God, that card is getting old."
"We were too careful." Louis adds in, his eyes never leaving the screen. Harry watches them intently, taking in their reactions.
"If I don't think it's impossible, I'll think you're threatened by me."
"What are you watching?"
"Me? Threatened by a peasant girl? Hell no."
Heads snapped up and eyes turn to look behind Harry, the blue-eyed lad looked intently at them. Harry flipped the phone to face him and immediately paused the video, but before he could keep it, Niall's hands grabbed it from him.
Harry stood up and so did Zayn. "Niall, what are you doing!" Harry shouts as he tries to take the phone from Niall.
Niall pushes Harry and Zayn away, turning his back on them. He plays the video.
"What? You've got my voice and Niall, what else could you want?"
And they all knew it was too late.
The trust was broken yet again.
"Riley's a girl." Niall whispers, "Guitar Girl."
And a secret they swore to never tell has been told with them being the accessories to how it unfolds.

Polkadotsandsmileyfaces: I love making Harry into a guy who could be cheeky but could be really deep. I don't want to write him so typically like he flirts with everyone, he's a cheeky ass or something. I want to really write him into something deep. I want to write all my characters that way. They keep their "mark" into the public but I write something deeper aside from that. HAHAHA. YOU SAW THEM IN A CONCERT.:(( I am envious of you! GAAAH. Anyway, college is being nice to me. I have to read in awhile though for tomorrow's class.:))
