    Summary

    Maybe it’s Niall, he reasons to calm his storming heart. Maybe he’s not actually gone for the holidays yet, maybe Harry got the dates confused. Slowly, he holds his breath and pushes the kitchen door open. The first thing he sees make him jump, a wooden spoon held out like a sword. Once his brain processes the sight in front of him, it’s less the sword that gets him than who is attached to the wooden spoon.

    “Harry,” the swordsmen speaks before Harry can, his voice low and steady though confusion laces each word.

    Harry’s breath catches. Every string around his heart, all the protection he spent nine months building, rips out and tears open all at once as he says, “Hi Louis.”

    -

    AU: Nine months after they break up, a twist of fate brings Harry and Louis back together at Christmas.

    Summary

    Jay sighed. “Louis. Why won’t you ever talk to me?” She watched him carefully. “I can tell that something isn’t right.”
    “What do you mean?” Louis asked, shoving his hands between his thighs because he could feel them shaking. “It’s fine, Mum.”
    “Louis, I—” Jay paused and sighed. “I don’t believe you.”
    “Did you ever think that maybe this is why I didn’t come home?” Louis snapped, hearing and regretting his tone but not being able to stop himself. “Maybe I don’t want to be completely interrogated about my love life.”
    “No, darling,” Jay said, undeterred and unshaken by Louis’ outburst. “I think you’ve not been coming home because Gareth doesn’t want you to.”
    You’re wrong, you’re wrong, Louis yelled inside his brain. Another voice; faint, distant, buried, seemed to agree with the horrible, sinking feeling in his gut.
    “No,” he finally scoffed.
    ---
    Life is complicated for Louis Tomlinson. His job sucks, his mum is always mad at him, and his boyfriend is too busy all the time. He gains some perspective when he meets Harry and, suddenly, everything is turned on its head.
