    Summary

    After a debilitating surgery, former concert pianist Harry Styles isn't able to come to terms with his new reality. Sundered from his high standards of performance, Harry can't seem to feel anything anymore, except perhaps interest in his favorite coffee shop's barista, a man who seems wholly unsuited for the job and whose blue eyes hold in them the same pain that Harry struggles with every day. When fate renders them more than mere acquaintances, Harry is forced to deal with the insecurities of his condition and his stubborn pride. Louis wants to love him, but Harry can't accept that, because he can't accept himself. And besides, he's never loved. He doesn't know how. He just wants to be able to play his piano like before, because it was safe, because at its keys he could control the roiling of his heart and funnel it into music. With love, things are much too risky. Why would he ever take such a chance?

    Summary

    As Harry stood there, the other man turned around, and he knew he was correct in who he thought it was.
    “Louis?” he asked, still not quite believing it.
    Louis blinked. “Harry? Wh– what are you doing here?”
    “I work here,” Harry said. “What are you doing here?”
    “Um, I’m picking up my brother. The nurse called and said he was sick.”
    Harry felt like he was going to be sick. “Wait, Ernest is your brother? Since when do you have a brother?”
    “Since about seven years ago, I guess. Wait, how do you know Ernest?”
    “I’m his teacher.”
    “You’re his what?” Louis exclaimed.
    Harry gulped. This was going to be a long year.
    ---
    Or, the AU where Louis and Harry were best friends growing up, but lost touch after Harry moved away. Ten years later, Harry has moved back to town, but he and Louis don't pick up where they left off.
