6. Two Admirer's

Zoe's POV:

I walked over down the hall and blew out breath I had been holding. A quick peek through the door tells me that it's Zayn. Thank God, someone who will make this nonsense go away. I unlock the door and open it, stepping aside to let Zayn through.

"Hey Zayn, what's up?"

"Can I talk to you?"

"Uh, yeah one second. I'll be right back." I walk into the living room of the hotel room and crouch down in front of Louis.

"Look, Louis can I think about this. It's a lot to handle, plus I have another visitor, so can you go back to your room? Please?" Louis seemed hesitant.

"Promise you'll think about it?"

"I promise." Louis stands up and walks out of the room without a word. I follow him and see Zayn. He points at Louis with his thumb.

"What was that?" I shake my head.

"You don't want to know." Zayn just shrugs and follows me into the living room again, coincidently taking the same spot Louis did.

"I made a drawing for you." He hands me a page from the notebook he was working in earlier.

"So this is what you were drawing earlier." He just smiles and looks around the room. I take a seat in the armchair and unroll the paper. My eyes must have looked surprised or disappointed.


Zayn's POV:

Zoe looked disappointed and I had to do something about it.

"I can redo it if you don't like it." Zoe looks at my drawing, but smiles.

"No, I love it. Thank you." She looks at me and smiles her smile with the one dimple.

"Um Zoe, I need to say something, and it might be surprising or spur of the moment, so don't be too shocked."


Zoe's POV:

Oh great, Zayn two! This is just great, great!

"What is it?" I try to hide my concern and it seems that he hasn't noticed.

"Well, ever since I saw you at the airport, I fell in love, as I learned more about you, the more I fell in love. And I was wondering if you would like to go out with me." Zayn slowed down at the end as my eyes filled with disappointment.

"You don't have to..."

"No it's not, it's just that my last relationship didn't end well and I just need to think about it. I don't know how long it will take to figure it out, but until then let's remain friends."

"Alright, I appreciate that you're thinking about it. I'm gonna go back to the other hotel room." I just sat with my head in my hands and heard as Zayn bumped into things on his way out. After hearing the door close, I went and locked it, then I went back to my room. I walk to the wall and bang my head on it. After what felt like 20 minutes, grabbed my purse and took an Advil, because I was starting to get a headache.

"Why do I have to be the one with two guys from One Direction who like me! I mean they could choose anyone of their fans, and not one, but two have to choose me! Plus I'm Niall's cousin for Pete's Sakes!!!!" I crawl on my bed and lay out. Thinking of anything and everything.


I wake up to the sound of knocking on my door, so I trudge over and open it.

"Hey Zoe, you need to go down and eat or you'll miss breakfast." I look at Niall with tired eyes, then I go grab my key and follow him downstairs for breakfast. We chatted while we ate then I went back into my room. I grabbed my jean shorts, blue embroidered mesh cami, and blue bandeau, after changing and brushing my hair, I swiped my mascara over my eyelashes, and pulled on my black converses. I took a deep breath preparing for the anticipation of Louis and Zayn, then grabbed my brown, over-the-shoulder messenger bag, and walk out the door, into the hall. The boys were waiting for me and Louis and Zayn were both staring intently at the floor.

"Alright let's go." Liam started walking down the hall. I fell in step beside Harry and he looked at me with a quizzical expression on his face then looked forward. When we got to the car, I took passenger seat, not wanting to be near the two guys who asked me out.


When we got to the mall, the boys dispersed to the stores they wanted to go to, but Harry offered to go with me to Apple. We walked into the store and I started examining iPhones.

"So you had quite the party in your room." I raised my eyebrow at Harry.

"Not, really a party, more like people confessing their undying love to me." He laughed and pointed to the iPhone 5.

"That's a good one." I examine it and find out he's right.

"How'd you know?" I motion for one of the workers to come over.

"Well, the looks on their faces last night and this morning said everything."


"Hello, did you find something you liked?" The Apple guy looks at me, then he looks at Harry and shrugs.

"I would like the iPhone 5 please." The Apple guy prints out a receipt after Harry handed over his card. The guy set up my phone for me, then handed it over. "Thank you." I smile and we leave.

"You need to be careful who you choose and let the other down easy, ok? I don't want anyone getting hurt."

"Why are you acting like a big brother to me?"

"'Cause that's my job." I give him a quizzical look and he laughs.

"No really."

"Because you're like a sister to me." I roll my eyes and we both laugh.
