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.


14. What Happened?

Harry POV


I went to bed feeling on top of the world. Rose was amazing, absolutely amazing, and I hoped she felt the same way towards me that I felt towards her. I was so embarassed that I didn't get her a gift though. But I couldn't ask one of the guys to cover for me like I normally would. If I got her something, I'd want it to be special. She was special.


Still, even though I hadn't gotten her a gift, the day was absolutely perfect. There was something about her, something that made me so jittery and happy. Everytime we touched, there were sparks of electricity. She was so unlike any other girl I had ever met.


I sighed happily, and got changed into a pair of pajama bottoms and a t-shirt. Liam, Niall, and Louis were still in the living room, I could hear them, and Louis was definitely drunk. And Zayn...well, Zayn was with Rose. I knew he would hate me. He said she was off-limits, but I had gone after her anyway. I knew he thought I would hurt her, but I wouldn't. I loved her too much. But a nagging in the back of my mind told me that his protectiveness of her wasn't the only reason that he didn't want me near her.


I could tell he loved her just as much as I did. But what was I supposed to do? Step back and say "here, have her"? If he wanted her, he could have stepped up and made a move. The fact that I beat him to it wasn't really my problem. Still, it pained me to see him hurt. He was my best friend, all of these lads were. I sighed again, this time, not quite as happily. Running my fingers through my curls, I made my way back into the living room.


The boys were sitting around, laughing and talking, and I stood over next to Liam, smiling at Louis trying to fit his leg over his head, and failing miserably. Suddenly, I heard a door slam, and moments later, Zayn stormed into the room.


His eyes were bloodshot, as if he'd been crying, and he focused them on me. Before I knew what was happening, he stormed over to me, he face contorted with rage and pain, and he slammed his hands into my chest.


"This is all your fault!" he screamed, tears brimming over his eyes. He pushed me again, even harder this time, and I almost fell over.


"What the hell are you doing?" I yelled, pushing back.


"Why couldn't you just stay away from her?" He asked, not yelling this time, but sobbing. I was frozen in shock, staring at him. I had never seen him like this, ever.


"I...I love her Zayn." I said quietly, not sure of what to do.


Zayn pushed himself away from me, and grabbed at his hair, the tears running freely now. "You are not capable of love," he hissed, looking at me with such hatred, "You use girls to get what you want and you throw them away like garbage. She is NOT garbage! She is the best girl you will ever meet, and she deserves someone who is always going to be there for her, someone who will always love her!"


"I know," I whispered.


"No, I don't think you do!" he yelled, getting worked up again. "I have always been there for her. I have always loved her!" he pointed at himself with each 'I' and the pain in his voice was so clear now, it nearly brought me to tears. "It should be me she loves," he said, his voice breaking, "not you."


My heart lept when he said that, confirming what I had prayed was true. Rose did love me. I almost smiled when he said that, but the look on Zayn's face, the true pain expressed in his eyes, stopped me.


"She does love you, mate," I said, putting my hand on his shoulder, but he shook me off.


"I'm not your 'mate'," he said coolly, and I felt a pain in my chest. He glared at me and walked towards me, getting so close our noses almost touched. "I hate you for this Harry," he said scathingly, "and I will never forgive you."


With that, he pushed past me into the kitchen, and I stood there, shocked. After about a minute, I looked around. Liam and Louis were staring at me sympathetically, and Niall was gone. What had just happened?
