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.


12. Swimming and Snogging

Tayler's POV

Zayn is getting out of the infirmary today! The first thing we're going to do is go down to the pool. I'm showing him how to swim.

I went into his little room and he was sitting on his cot. His eyebrows were furrowed and he looked like he was thinking pretty hard.

"Hey, I checked you out" I said. He looked at me and smiled worriedly.

"You don't have to be afraid of swimming. I've been coaching kids for the last three summers" I say as I grab a wash cloth and run it under hot water.

"I'm not too worried about that." he mumbles. I wash off all of the red stains on his face and neck and he watches my eyes. Today is Monday and the only time I left the infirmary was this morning to shower and brush my teeth. Though I probably still had black under my eyes and I never changed out of my Jim jams.

"Why did you stay in here the whole time?" he asked me.

"I was afraid something would happen after I left. And I didn't want you to..." I choked back on my tears.

"I thought that you would forget who I was and I wanted to be the first person you saw when you woke up." I said and a stray year ran down my cheek.

Zayn lifts his hand and cups my cheek. He brushes away my tear with his thumb.

"I would NEVER be able to forget you" he says, then kisses my forehead.

I smile weakly and help him off of the bed. I walk him to his room.

"Take a shower because you stink. Then meet me at the pool in an hour" I say and he cracks a smile.

I strut down the hall happily and make my way to my room. Who would've thought that Zayn Malik would actually possibly have feelings for me?

Zayn's POV

I find it funny that the clothes I was wearing was my suit that I was wearing at the dance. I peeled it of once I got into my room and tossed it in the trash. It was definitely dirty, let's just say that.

I showered for about twenty minutes and scrubbed every last bit of my body until it was red. By the time I was done I still had about half an hour to get ready. I just threw on swim trunks and watched TV until it was four o clock.

I headed down to the pool as Tayler was coming out of the lockeroom. She was in her red lifeguard suit and she had her hair up in a quick bun and put on her raybans. She smiled when she saw me.

"Ready to go?" she asked. I bit my lip and nodded my head. We went over into the shallow end and climbed into the pool.

"Okay, so first your going to go underwater all of the way. You know how to hold your breath?" she asked. I nodded my head.

"Okay, so hold your breath and when your under water, you blow bubbles out of your nose. So just breath out" she said.

I nodded my head, then took a deep breath and went under water. I held my breath for a little l, then started breathing out of my nose. I opened my eyes and looked around. Being under water is pretty dang cool. As soon as I felt my lungs were about to burst, I came back up.

"Your a natural!" Tayler said excitedly.

I smiled warmly as a blush rose up on her cheeks.

"Okay, so now I want you to float on your back." she said. I lay on my back and she put her hands underneath me. I looked up at her as she held me in place. She slowly moved her hands out of the way and I stayed there.

"Awesome" she said and smiled.

"Now, your going to swim." she said. My breath caught.

"It's okay, your really good, you can take it slow. We can be done for today if you want" she said softly.

"No no, it's okay it's just..." I stopped.

"What Zayn?"

"My twin brother drowned when we were two"

Tayler's POV

"Zayn I-" he cut me off.

"No, it's fine. Just don't treat me like
I'm fragile please" he told me with an almost hopeless expression on his face.

"I'll try not to." I say.

"Can we get back to," he stopped "swimming?"

I nod my head and grab his hands.

"Okay so this is going to be awkward, but you're going to doggy paddle." I say.

"Kick your legs like this," I show him " and just kind of use your arms to pull yourself along" I say.

He tries and does it successfully. I don't know why he was so afraid before.

"Now try putting your face in the water." I say. He furrows his eyebrows and takes a deep breath. He swims along with his face in the water. I can't help but laugh. He so childish that it's adorable. Thank god he didn't hear me.

He finishes and swims back to me.

"Okay so we're gonna be done for the day" I say.

He nods his head and we climb out. As we're drying off Zayn starts talking,

"What ever happened to Aiden?" he asked.

"Aiden is in jail." I spit. Not towards Zayn, but more towards Aiden.

"They threw his head in bandages and then the cops drove off with him in the back seat. Thank god he's gone" I say.

Zayn mumbles something that is in audible to me.

"Come again?" I ask.

"Nothing" he mumbles.

"Zayn..." I say. He looks up straight into my eyes.

"Now I don't have any competition" he says.

"Competition for what?"

"For you" he tells me. I feel my cheeks turn cherry red and I look down.

"Don't-" Zayn whispers. He lifts my face by holding my chin in between his thumb and forefinger.

"Don't hide your face from me". I look up to him. Our faces are inches apart and I feel relief wash over me and his lips meet mine. His kiss holds so much mixed emotion, happiness, love, so much more than Aiden's.

I gingerly bring my hands to his chest and his arms go around my waist. We pull back and our foreheads clash.

"Hi there" he says. I smile.

"Well hello" I reply.

"Tayler, I-" but he gets cut off.

"What are you two doing out here?!" the head mistress shouts.
