They didn’t exactly talk about it - it’s more of a gut feeling, he's been with Harry for long enough to know when something is up, when something bothers him that keeps him up at night and makes him write more than he usually does - but Niall figures they don’t have to. He figures that when Harry is ready, he’ll come around, always has.

‘Can you stay and hold me for a moment? I think the room is spinning, Liam,’ he mumbles into Liam’s neck, lips slowly dragging across the skin. He didn’t mean to do that, but it feels really good, sends shivers down his spine and makes him crave more. Makes him want to do it again, to feel the skin heat up under his lips and taste it; try out if Liam tastes as sweetly as he smells.
Harry can't sleep. Liam tries to help.
Harry’s standing outside the pub, huddled under the awning to avoid getting rained on, having a smoke. He’s not usually a smoker, but sometimes it helps to calm his nerves, and he needed to get out for a while and have five minutes to himself. A breather. That’s what Niall calls it, at least. ‘Need a breather?’ he asks, when they’re out together, surrounded by his friends. They’re good when they’re on their own, familiar with each other, and those are the times when Harry feels most comfortable. With nobody around to see them, judge them. It’s only been a week and Harry is grateful that Niall’s been so understanding, and knows when it’s getting too much for him. Feels it when Harry’s about to run away, and lets him have a moment to himself, so he’ll come back and stay.
