We've Got A Bit of Love/Hate

Tayler Moore is a normal, well if you consider an awkwardly built 6'0 tall blonde with blue eyes a normal girl. Tyler is still trying to figure out how to be comfortable in her own skin while juggling three sports at a time and keeping her grades at a B average. Of course when her Boarding School suddenly has to combine with the neighboring all-boys academy to become a co-ed school, she has another thing coming. On top of all of that, she has to deal with the pompous, vain jerk of a jock, Zayn Malik. And it just so happens, he has a hidden talent. One that both he and Tayler share.

Join Tayler and her Love/Hate filled life with Zayn and experience, bad dancing, amazing voices, sports, and a special someone. These two will endure a lot. And its all thanks to four other boys and four girls who help them along the way.


8. Dress Shopping

You probably never would've expected that I love shopping. I mean, I do three sports and I'm not afraid to get dirty, but I LOVE clothes. Though right now, I don't think clothes loved me.

I've tried on close to ten different dresses, ranging from long to short, and bright to dark. But I still haven't found anything to wear.

Right now im sitting in the dressingroom with my head in my hands in nothing but my spandex and my strapless bra.

"Hey Tay?" I hear Jordan's voice from outside the room.

"Yeh?" I ask.

"I think I found you a dress, and you HAVE to try it on" she says.

"Alright" I groan, she hands me the dress over the door and I instantly fall in love the top of it is white and as it goes to the bottom it fades into a smokey black. The bust in encrusted with jewels and its quite breathtaking. It was one-shouldered and head feather-like switly designs acroos my chest and led diagonally to my waist.

I slipped it on and zipped up the back. The fabric felt like silk and it gave me goosebumps. I looked in the mirror.

It was perfect, it hugged me tightly around my chest and the top of my waist, then it flowed down like water all of the way to the ground. Normally long dresses don't fit me correctly because they go to my ankle, considering I have such a long and tall figure. But this was perfect.

The girls were sitting on two red loveseats with their dresses covered inplactic when I came out to show them. They all gasped. I smiled and spun around for them.

"Tayler, it's so beautiful" RIley tells me. I give each of the girls a kiss on the cheek.

"How much is it?" Danielle asks. trust the sesnual one to ruin a moment. I look at the tag and it reads '118.99' on it.

"One hundred and nineteen dollars" I say and smile. Right in my budget, and I had enough money left to get a pair of shoes and a clutch.

I grabbed a pair of sleek black flats and a black clutch, then purchased my items. Right now I was SO excited.

As we were heading out of the store my phone buzzed in my pocket.

'Hey, it's Aiden ;) you at the school right now? x -A'

I think whether or not I should reply, yes I will. I type rapidly on the screen,

'No, but I'll be back in a little over a half an hour (: x - T'

'Cool, meet me in the orchard at eight-thirty. It's a date? ;) x - A'

I looked at my watch, its seven o clock right now.

'Okay see you there (: x - T'

"Guys we need to leave the town by seven fourty five" I say.

"Why?" Jordan asks.

"You know that new kid Aiden? He wants to meet me in the orchard at eight-thirty for a date." I say.

"But what about Zayn?" Sierra asks me.

"WHAT about Zayn?" I ask.

"I figured you two would go to the dance together." she repies.

"Doubtful, and besides its not like Aiden is going to ask me to the dance'' I say. Sierra shrugs her shoulders.

"Tea anyone?" Danielle asks, then points to a cute little shop called 'The Steam Cafe'

"YES!" Katelyn and I say.

Katelyn and I try about twenty different teas each before we decide on one, while the other girls just pick randomly. What? We're serious about our tea. I ended up getting an acai berry tea with steamed apple juice and Katelyn gets a mint brewed tea.

On the car ride back, I almost fall asleep at the wheel. Tea always makes me tired. We pull into the school parking lot and rush up to our room.

It was almost eight-thirty by the time we get back so the girls helped me get ready. Sierra throws me a little yellow sundress and I slip it on, then she quickly curls my hair. I throw on mascara and a spritz of perfume, then sprint to the elevator.

You'd never guess who was in the elevator when I got there. Zayn.

I pop a mint in my mouth and try to ignore him.

"Where are you headed?" he asks. He is eyeing me up and down. I mean I can't blame him. I look really good right now. Not to be a snob.

"I have a date with Aiden in the orchard" I tell him.

He snorts.

"What Zayn?"

"THAT idiot?" he asks.

"What does it concern you?" I snap.

"Well even Niall wouldn't approve of you going with him" he says.

"Well Niall is my brother, so he can have an opinion. But you? Zayn, we're not even friends, in fact I don't know what we are so you can duck off" I say with venom in my voice. Except I didn't say duck.

"You know what? Why do I even care? I try being nice, but you still act like you hate me. What do I have to do to get you to like me?!" He shouts. There's an awkward silence. If it was any other time I would yell 'gay baby' but not this time. We stay glaring at eachother until the bell dings. He stroms out and I follow, then walk the other way.

I stumble backwards and gasp deeply. Did he just say he'd been trying to get me to like him? Does that mean he likes me?

I shake the thought from my head, I'm going on a date with Aiden, not Zayn, focus on Aiden.

I make my way to the orchard where soft music drifts from beneath a tree with a low glow. I come to the tree, where candles are lit and Aiden sits strumming a guitar.

"Hey Aiden" I say smiling.

"Oh," he says and scrambles to his feet, "Hey Tayler" he says smiling. He walks to me and then hugs me. He puts his hand on the small of my back and leads me to the picnic setup.

"This is really sweet" I say smiling as I sit down.

"Thanks it took me like an hour to set up." He says cheekily.

For the duration of the date we talk, flirt, laugh, throw grapes, and talk some more.

"Hey Tayler" he says as it's almost time for me to leave.

"Yeh Aiden?" I reply.

"I was wondering if you'd go to the winter ball with me?" he asks. I scream inwardly. Yes or no? My mouth feels dry and cotton-y, I don't know what to say. I get up some courage and speak.

"Yes, Aiden" I say. Why not? He's so sweet and it's not like he's a total jerk like Zayn. He lets out a deep breath and smiles. He takes a step towards me and snakes his arms around my waist. MY chest lurches forward as he leans toward me. I wrap my arms around his neck and our lips touch. A small kiss, soft, slow, and tender. I feel myself playing with his hair and kissing him back.

Where has this sudden burst of uncontrollableness come from? I didn't WANT to kiss him yet. But I just....did.

I pull away and Aiden pouts a little.

"Goodnight Aiden, thanks for an amazing time" I say smiling.

He waves as I walk away. A man of few words can really say alot with his actions.

OHMYGOD.. I'm going to the dance with Aiden!!!

Zayn's POV

I boarded the elevator to head down to the orchard. I needed a breather. I was on myway down ehen the elevator stopped. The doors opened to a very fanciily dressed Tayler. God damn she looked so beautiful. She stepped into the elevator without a word.

She pops a mint in her mouth and stares straight ahead.

"Where are you headed?" I asks. I lookher up and down. Her tan muscular legs look even longer than normal and her skin is so smooth, even her lips. How badly I would like to kiss her lips. I bite my tongue.

"I have a date with Aiden in the orchard" she says smugly. I snort to disguise my dissappointment.

"What Zayn?"

"THAT idiot?" I ask. it was entirely true too. That guys was a douche, but she didn't know that.

"What does it concern you?" she hisses. Ouch. That really kind of hurt.

"Well even Niall wouldn't approve of you going with him" I clarify, telling a lie/truth.

"Well Niall is my brother, so he can have an opinion. But you? Zayn, we're not even friends, in fact I don't know what we are so you can duck off" But she didn't say duck. I hide the hurt in my voice when I speak,

"You know what? Why do I even care? I try being nice, but you still act like you hate me. What do I have to do to get you to like me?!" I shouts. There's an awkward silence. We stay glaring at eachother until the bell dings. I storm out of the hotel and walk the opposite way of the orchard, I walk towards the meadow.

I walk around for about an hour with my hands shoved deep into my pockets. I try to take Tayler off of my mind but everything reminds me of her. The yellow flowing wheat that rustled in the wind reminded me of her flowing hair. The blue water of the pond I walked past reminded me of her eyes.

And the singing of the night birds reminded me of her beautiful laugh. But, I mean what else was I supposed to say in the elevator. Should I have told her that I think I may love her? No. Not before she was going on a date. I grab an apple out of the apple tree on the edge of the school. I take a bite, it was so sweet, I could only imagine that her lips tasted like this.

God what am I saying!? I swallow the apple and throw the rest to the side. I go back into the hotel and up into my room. The guys were out with the girls, they were asking them to the dance tonight. I sat in the window seat in my room by myself and leaned against the wall, looking out the window. I loved this spot, ever since we got this room, I spent most of my time in our room in this seat.

[A/N: Now could be a good time to start playing the song (:]

I looked out towards the meadow and I saw Tayler and talking and laughing. He threw a grape at her and she threw one at him. They fell back into a fit of histerics.

I feel like such a creep right now. But I could just use the escuse that I was watching her for Niall? Uh sure....

They both stood up and dusted their slothes off. Aiden started to speak to Tayler. All I could read off of his lips was the word, 'dance'

After about of minute Tayler shook her head yes. DAMN IT! Their going to the dance together. I slammed my head back against the wall. I turned back to the, just as Aiden leaned in and kissed her.


I stood up, my body shaking with fury. I didn't realize I was crying until I went into the bathroom. My face was tomato red and my tears were hot as they glided down my cheeks. I let out a shout of rage and kicked over a table. How did that even get there?

I punched a hole in the wall and fell against my bed. I stayed there and cried and cried, my body shaking with sadness and anger as the tears spilled from my eyes.

Once I stopped throwing my fit, I sat forward with my head in my hands. Well one thing was for sure. I loved Tayler.

And with that I fell against my pillow and went to sleep
