Three's a Crowd

Rose and Zayn have been best friends since before they can remember. When Zayn's life is completely turned upside down and he becomes 1/5 of the world's biggest boyband, he and Rose reconnect. Upon reuniting with Zayn, Rose meets the rest of the band, and nothing could prepare her for what was to come.


1. The Day Before

Nobody's POV


Rose stood in front of her full-length mirror, wistfully twisting the soft fabric of her dress around her fingers, critically gazing at herself. Tall, lean, brunette, with sky blue eyes any teenage girl would kill for, she was, in fact, pretty. So why didn't she feel that way? Absentmindedly she brought her hand up to trace the scars that resided on her wrist. So many insecurities, so critical of everything that she did. With one last withering glance into the mirror, Rose lifted the dress over her head, unsatisfied. She would need to shop.


It was stupid that she felt like this. Zayn was her best friend. Tomorrow, after a year and a half of being separated, she was reuniting with him. She was joining him and the rest of his band, One Direction, for the next three or four weeks, give or take, down in London, and for a few days along that time period, she was staying in Bradford with the Malik's for Christmas.


Zayn knew everything about her, knew every single one of her confusing layers, and he accepted her. So why was she going through the trouble of looking beautiful? Deep down, she knew it wasn't for Zayn. He had seen her in a pair of sweats more times than she could count, and her appearence around him never bothered her, They were like siblings, and she never had to worry about impressing him.


However, One Direction as a whole was another story. Having supported Zayn's desire to perform since the day he expressed it, Rose was over the moon when Simon Cowell put Zayn into a group with four other guys, rather than letting him go. She could tell they were going far, with their boyish good looks and charm, and now, a year and a half later, they were the most famous boyband in the world, and, well, they were freaking hot. She wanted to just look pretty at least, as any girl would.


Sighing, she collapsed onto her bed, laying back and staring up at the ceiling. She was excited to see Zayn, she really was, but secretly she wished the other boys weren't going to be there. They were all so close with him now, maybe even closer than she had ever been with him. She knew it was stupid, and she undertood that there were some things that guys bonded through, that girls wouldn't understand. Still, she felt slightly replaced and intimidated by these four strangers who had kept her best friend away for so long.


Sitting back up, Rose reached over for her phone to double-check the time Zayn said to meet him and the boys at the restaurant in London. 7:30. That gave her enough time to hit the shops in the morning and pick up a last minute outfit. For now, she knew she should get some rest. She changed into her pajamas, turned off her bedroom light and snuggled under her blanket. Right before she shut her eyes, her phone buzzed. Squinting from the light, she opened the message from Twitter.


'@zaynmalik: can't wait to see @RosemarieDale12 again tomorrow. it's been too long! :) xx'


Smiling, Rose put the phone back onto her nightstand and wrapped the warm blanket even tighter around her body, quickly falling asleep.
