75. Don't move on too quick

Zayn's POV

As I walked through the people I saw Max leave and his eyes were red. I went looking for Adriana, she must've been there.  

I turned to where everyone stared and saw her blank yet hurt expression. I was going to go to her but Harry came from the other side. My heart dropped when I saw her look at him.  She obviously couldn't see him so she didn't know who he was because she stayed calm and started dancing. 

"She's lucky isn't she? Having Harry Styles dance with her."  I turned to look next to me, to hear who's voice it was. A girl closely to my height stood there, her blonde curly hair swooped down from to her chest. As I looked at her, her eyes caught my attention, a shade of gray and blue.   

"How.. How do you know that's Harry Styles?"  I stared at her curiously, yet admiring her look. 

"I saw him take his mask off... I wasn't too close to Adriana but everyone at school knew her and Harry had a thing." She paused and everyone looked at Harry and Adriana dancing, I felt broken. "It's really romantic that he came here for her. Him and his group aren't allowed here because of the ban, or something their management created. It's cute."  I broke away from looking at the two dance and glanced at her. She smiled at me quickly and went to look back at them. 

"You know a lot about him, are you a fan?"  I asked her as she fiddled with her hair. 

"They have good music, but I just like to keep up with everyone. So I'm assuming if he's here, his band mates might be here with him, right?"  She had a content look on her face, I didn't know if she knew or was just thinking. 

"I definitely think they might be here."  I responded, she gave me a warm smile. I felt goosebumps as she did. 

"My names Abby."  I smiled towards her, and through all of that I had forgotten about Adriana and Harry.  "I don't know if you haven't realized but I'm Zayn."  She beamed, giggling a bit. "I thought so, the accent gave it all away."  I felt happy for a second, then the music came back into my ears, as if it was shut off but turned on at the loudest volume. The noise of everyone speaking came back too, the smell of too much perfume, the colorful lights flashing around the ballroom. 

Abby put her hand on mine, "Want to dance?"  I agreed, she went ahead of me and I looked at her dress. It was unique, it was unlike the other girls here. It was a red knee length-ed silk dress that showed part of her back and closed when it came to her stomach.  I couldn't see her face, from the mask but I could see her eyes and they gave me a comforting feeling.  We slow danced a bit, got into conversation, barely.  When I looked up after talking to Abby I saw Adriana panic and I followed. 

"What's wrong?"  I heard Abby's voice but all I focused on was Adriana. Adriana pushed away from Harry and ran off, Harry stood for awhile... Then he ran after her. 

"I ha-have to go. Thank you." I gave her a kiss on her cheek, when I had said thank you, it meant much more than any normal thanks but a thank you as in, thank you for making me feel happy, actually truly happy. "Bye..." I ran off, following after Harry. As I got outside, I saw Adriana on the floor, and Harry comforting her. 

I hid in the back and watched as they talked.  "He cheated on you. He slept with a girl, someone named Sophia. He couldn't take the guilt and... He said that he was breaking up with you because.. Because guys hit on you? Adriana, his little charade went on for months."  Anger boiled in me, I wanted to find him, I wanted to Max to see what he's done, Adriana was crying. And because of him.  I clutched my fist, I had always known he was bad for her, I always knew! But she never dared to listen...  I waited for a minute and she got up after Harry stopped talking. He called out for her, but she got in her car and drove.

"Adriana!"  I walked out from behind the door, and I stared at him.  He put his hands on his head and closed his eyes. He walked to the sidewalk and sat down, I heard him take in tears.  I couldn't stand to see him so upset, I walked over to him and sat down. I put my hand on his back. 

"You really love her... Enough to tell her something that breaks her. But to protect her from anything worse." 

Harry stayed silent, he was crying. I had only seen Harry cry twice.  On X Factor when he was rejected and was going home. His mum hugged him and told him it was alright. The second was when we were taken out as a group, he had really wanted us to win. He thought it was over but I told him we weren't. There was so much more for us...  

And now there was more for Adriana and him. Harry deserved to be happy, and stop living his depressed life of fighting with his band mate over someone he loved way more than I did.  I didn't know if she would accept him like that but I know she'd at least accept him as friends.

"You love her... More than I could or ever will. We came here for a reason, and that reason is driving off. Go after her."  I started to get watery eyes myself, I wiped them away. I was letting the girl I loved slip away but with someone she deserved to be with. She would be happy with Harry, they both had a connection that I never did with Adriana. She couldn't find the power to hit him when he did something wrong, because she loves him.  I was like her brother, one who she wasn't afraid of. She disagreed with me but she still loved me. And she wanted me to realize that, from her perspective, I was a brother to her and I couldn't see that until now. Harry had been staring at me, as if I had really just said what I told him. 

"Go after her." I pulled out the keys from the car we had came in. I took them before we got inside from Louis. I took them in case something happened, and he had no idea.  Harry wiped his eyes and smiled at me, taking the keys. He gave me a hug and we both stood up. We ran to the parked car and got inside.  "She's at her apartment, I know she is."  Harry stated and he started the car and we drove.   

As we got there I unbuckle and came out, Harry stayed still.  "Harry, let's go mate."  He stared at his surroundings and his eyes were still red from crying.  "I'll be right there."  It rained so I got wet as I stood waiting, I didn't need anymore for me to run in there. I saw Greg and asked if he had seen Adriana come. 

"She ran up there, she looked pretty upset, is she alright?" 

"Just a rough night..." I told him and ran up the stairs.  I got to her door and paused. Do not, do not tell her you love her. Do not kiss her, remember she deserves to be happy. 

"C'mon Zayn." I told myself really quick. I thought how I was happy, a quick thought of Abby passed through my mind. How I had just met her and she made me happy... I smiled to myself and I got the strength to go in. I heard Max talking to her, convincing her that she should come back.  Adriana looked weak, ready to go back.

I wouldn't let it happen.  I spoke up, and in a matter of seconds Max was being walked out the door.   

"I still love you." 

"I do too." I hoped it wasn't what it seemed. 

 

"... But I can't forgive you for what you did. I know I cheated on you by kissing him, but at least I told you and I never did it again. You kept it a secret and continued doing it. Don't come back." I smiled at myself, I was proud of Adriana for doing this for herself.  As she shut the door, she cane over to me and hugged me. I closed my eyes, enjoying this. It was the one thing I had wanted in a long time and now it seemed like I wanted more but not from her. From someone else.  Adriana apologized and I told her I had forgiven her a long time ago.  Harry walked in, as he stared at us hugging.  Instead of feeling glad he was watching, I felt guilty.  "And so did Harry."  For a bit she looked at both of us and smiled gratefully at me. letting go of me, she hugged Harry. Apologizing too.  

Harry's POV

Everything had been perfect. Well now it had been. Adriana was in my arms, I held her waist tightly and took in the fact she was sorry for everything, she wasn't mad, she wanted to go back to who we were before. Truthfully I didn't know if Adriana would take me as is, I just knew I loved her and I would wait an eternity to be with her.

"It's okay..." I blinked a number of times making sure this was real. 

A whisper came from her lips, "Did you really mean everything you said?" I nodded, I didn't know what to say, I was so happy and everything seemed so right.  "I meant every thing." 

I snuggled into her, feeling the warmth run through me.  She didn't say anything all she did was continue hugging me.  "I better call Louis and tell him I have the keys. I might go pick them up too. I'll bring them over, if you want." Zayn asked hopeful. 

"Course, I have some apologizing to do." Adriana had pulled away from me and hugged Zayn one last time.  He smiled and glanced to look at me, he nodded his head and walked out, closing the door behind him. I watched her move carefully and I wondered what she was thinking now. 

"I'm not going to rush into anything but I meant it when I said I love you. I can't seem to say it enough."

She flashed me a smile as she turned around, "You know I dreamed of you. I can't remember them all but one."

I laughed, how flattering. "What happened in this dream?"

"I can't say." We both laughed and she sat with me on the couch. As she sat I noticed how she wiped her eyes quickly. "Are you alright?"

"Max... He lied, and all those times, Harry- we had sex." My eyes widened and I could literally feel my blood running through me. I remembered seeing Max tweet but I thought it was some song lyric after thinking of the possibilities but Adriana, I thought it could of but I never wanted to let myself know it was true. 

"He made me feel so important and so happy yet I was terrified of him." She wiped her eyes again and I jumped on the subject.

"You aren't terrified of him right now right?" What would she have to be scared of, he was gone... I smiled, making me cover it by putting a hand on my mouth.

"Not so much. It kind of walked away with him." I laughed and Adriana looked at me, half-smiling.

 

Adriana's POV

It felt nice being here with Harry. I was still crying a bit from everything. Overall I was irritated from Max, with a pang of hurt. I didn't understand of what had happened just yet but everything would work out somehow, I knew it would.  I walked to the kitchen and leaned against the counter, Harry followed.  "I like what you've done with the place. Looks very- modern."  I laughed, "Nothing has changed from the last time you were here." 

"When I came to yell at you, right?"  I looked at him and I bit my lip, I didn't want to get into the subject besides I had to hear what he said before.  "I'm sorry-"

"Please don't apologize. Don't apologize for what you said or did, because I deserved it. I was a bitch to you guys. I said so much that is, humiliating because here I am with no clue on what to do to make it up to you guys. A few apologies won't ever do it, everyday I'm apologizing to Danni. I think I might have to do that for you guys too."  I smiled, and Harry laughed.  "No, you don't have to. We both said things we didn't mean. It was a dumb thing. We have to learn from it."  I made a slight half smile and faded it away. I didn't know what else to say or do. 

"Do you want some food or a drink? The ones at the party I would guess weren't too great." I asked hesitantly, heading to the refrigerator and opening it. Harry came up from the counter and shut the refrigerator.  "The food and drinks were amazing." He stared at me, I looked away, and Harry's hand gently touched my face.  "You have no idea how much I want to kiss you."  I sighed, shaking my head towards Harry.

"I still love Max."  It ached my heart to say the words. Yet they were true. "Truthfully, I wouldn't mind to feel your lips again. Maybe it's what I've wanted... But I can't do it. A part of me would feel glad but the other would be disappointed. It hasn't even been an hour."  I said the last part laughing a bit but then it changed into having a depressed face. 

"I've waited for a long time now, and I don't mind waiting a little more."  Harry pulled me into another hug realizing that now all I wanted was comfort.  

After an hour Zayn came back with everyone, they were soaking from the rain. Harry and I made brownies, I wrote with icing 'I'm sorry' At least it would be a delicious apology. I was finishing the last of the frosting while everyone came in. It was awkwardly silent which didn't make me feel too well.  I took the pan and walked to them at the door.  Harry came up from behind me placing his hand on my shoulder. "Um... I know you guys are still way beyond pissed off at me... I made brownies." I said hopeful as I showed them.  Louis stood next to Niall and Niall to Liam.  I stayed silent and put down the pan on the table, all of them looked at me.  "I'm sorry. I would have apologize a million- more than a million times to make it up to you. I'm stupid, I over-react... I make so many mistakes. Like getting mad when you guys were only protecting me." 

Louis looked away from my stare, I hated to see him do that.  "You guys were the only people there for me and I pushed you away. I was just upset from having my dad die, and it was more than you guys just keeping it from me. I used that as an excuse, it seemed to make sense in the moment but- I'm messed up in my head. Everything seemed so bad and I took it out on you guys. And I know that it was one of the worst mistakes I've ever made... I was happy with you, all of you. You're my best friends. Well were, because I would understand how'd you want to have nothing from me anymore." I stayed still and continued on, "Niall, you were like a knight in shining armor come to rescue me... I was helpless and out of nowhere you came, I'm so grateful for it. I was alone so when Harry took me to your hotel I felt so comfortable around all of you. I was so alone that I made a big mess of kissing Zayn after I was flirting with Harry. It was a slutty move. Liam, I told you my problems like you were a therapist when in reality you wanted to be a friend listening and I took it for granted, I'm sorry for doing that. Louis you protected me like a brother, and you wanted me safe and told me to listen to you and I ignored it and pushed you away when you wanted to help. I am so sorry. Niall, I'm sorry for putting you on the spot and blaming you, it was a terrible thing to do. Harry. Zayn. I'm sorry for confusing you and making you two get angry at each other. I created drama in this band, and I can promise you that if you forgive me, it will never happen again. I'll be carefree and won't ever make you guys stress out... I'm sorry for everything. " I really missed them and I just wanted to be with them. Nothing every seemed to make since without them.  Everyone was hesitant but Liam came up to me and hugged me tight. 

"You're forgiven. But I still want you to know I'm here for you."  I hugged him back, showing my appreciation. Niall came from behind him and gave me a bear hug.  "You talk too much."  As soon as I hugged him I felt his head snuggle into my neck.  Zayn smiled pulling Niall off.  "I'm not going to lose you again. So forgive and forget."  After Zayn, Harry gave me a kiss on my forehead.  "I told you the brownies weren't necessary for them to forgive you."  "Liam and Niall seem to like them."  We both laughed as he went with them to get a piece.  "Louis?" I asked as he came over to me. I thought he was going to shake his head and leave but he pulled me into a big hug. 

"I missed you."  I beamed, he gave me our special hug,  "I did too Lou." 

I wrapped my arms around his back and then I started feeling drops of water hit my head.   Louis pulled away from me and fixed my hair, trying to make the water disappear. 

"Sorry..." He laughed and continued to do it.  "Adriana by far one the best apology brownies ever."  Niall told me as he sat down on the couch. I was so happy to see him go back to being his usual self and just sitting down relaxing. "Zayn told us what happened. Turns out you listened after all. It just took a bit of time." Louis went over to the brownies and handed me a piece.

After the brownies we sat around, we talked about everything. New album, new tour dates, their fans, it felt really good to hear them talk about it. "They ask the weirdest things on Twitter."

"I like their icons, with the floating heads."

"I saved one, it's of you Louis."

We all laughed about it, and I just stared at them, watching how they talked and how different they seemed to me. I rested my head on Harry, I listened carefully to each of what they said until Zayn fell asleep, then Liam, then Niall, then Louis. Then I fell asleep.

I woke up with Harry next to me, holding me as tight as he could. I moved away from him as best I could, I didn't want to wake him up because he looked so peaceful. I heard someone come in, I moved quick. I didn't even know what time it was. I also looked like crap from crying and sleeping with make up on. 

"Hey..."  I rolled my eyes as Tony stared at me.  "You look terrible." He laughed and stopped when he saw them sleeping on the couch  "This a motel or something?"  Tony stepped in between them and I saw his eyes wander to Harry. 

"Can you come back here? They're sleeping."  I laughed and pulled on Tony. 

"Are you back with him? Where's Max?"  I sighed and I led him to my room. "We broke up yesterday. And I'm not back with him. I was never really with him. He's a really, really good friend. They all are, they're just comforting me." I tried explaining everything to him and he was confused but he got most of it. "I'm not going to be dating right away. I don't know if I can. Besides anything could happen so..."

"Well I hated Max and if you wanna go out with him, go for it... He seems like a decent guy. I just need his records and address and security number..."  Tony joked, hitting my shoulder gently. 

"I'm in a British boyband, I think I'm safe."  I turned around and saw Harry standing there smiling at the both of us.  "If he did anything wrong, I'm sure you'd see it on E! first." Harry let out a small laugh and shook Tonys hand.  "Harry Styles." 

"Tony, Adriana's brother."
