"Don't sleep," Zayn rapidly poked me with his free hand on my shoulder. "Why, I'm not Wide Awake like Katy Perry," I tried as hard as I could to keep my eyes open but each time I lost to my now very heavy eyelids. "What?,"I saw a glimpse of him giving me a weird look while he chuckled. "Get it 'Cause Katy has a song called Wide Awake oh god I'm so funny, good job Jess,"I gave a weak laugh while patting myself on the back. "Um.......okay then,"he chuckled again. "D-don't judge me I'm tired and you won't let me sleep," I turned and stuck my tongue out at him.
"It's not that I don't want to let you sleep, I just don't know if it's safe from you bleeding so much,"he turned his head back the rode. "I'm perfectly fine I'm just tired do you expect me to be fully wake at 2 in the morning," I yawned. "we're here,"we pulled up to a medium-sized gray building. Some lights were on to a few window while others were pitch black. Not realizing he was already by my door with Alice cradled in his arms. I heard the seat belt pop as I unbuckled it. I stepped outside and instantly felt a cool rush of wind blow towards me. So much for the summer season, I thought to myself. We walked up to the entrance which was guarded by a short bulky man, once he saw Zayn he opened the door which lead to a small room with two doors. One a wooden brown and the other a steel metal. Stairs, and elevator, the doors read, Zayn was already inside the elevator which makes me realize I've been really out of it not being aware when he goes. We shot up, feeling a little dizzy at first and we ended up at the second to top room. I walked in to that different room from before,"how many houses do you have?,"I looked around. It was a bit similar but this house had a more deep brown wooden furniture with a beautiful forest green seat cushions. He had a small table along one wall with a vase and some flowers accompanied by a mirror. "um no this is my home the other house you were at is owned by one of my best mates,"He disappeared into the hallway. I stood there awkwardly and decided to lay on the couch. I felt the soft pillows and cushions sink in as I threw myself on the couch. I let out a sigh feeling a few bones crack, my eyes instantly shut and i slowly drifted to sleep
I lightly laid Alice into the spare bedroom in the flat. She was sound asleep, I removed a strand of hair from her face when I heard a loud scream from the living room. My eyes widened with worry and fear,"Jess,"I whispered. I jolted out of into the hallyway which lead me to the living room. Instantly I stopped, noticing what was going on. Louis and Harry were squirting Jessica with water guns and silly string, while Liam was frantically cleaning the mess and trying to make them stop, and usual Niall was sitting in the tall stools from the kitchen with a bag of chips. "Really guys!," I walked over and snatched the things from their hands. "We thought it was you,"Louis dropped his head. "Who is she? I mean not to be rude or anything," Harry looked at Jess and back at me. "This is Jess, she um...got hurt,I was hoping you guys knew anything to help her oh and this is Harry, Louis, Niall, and Liam," I scratched the back of my neck and pointed them out. "I got this," Lou shooed us all away and sat her on the couch.
We all crowded to the kitchen knowing not to disturb Louis while he's concentrating. "So Zayn, who's the chick?,"Niall nudged my side while giving me multiple winks. "Stop it you weirdo," I playfully started swatting my hands everywhere. I felt Liam's strong arms wrapped around me and sat me on a chair next to Niall. "Wait what happened to her, where you too, rough?," Harry snickered and tried not to laugh but failed. He busted out with laughter and soon stopped when he cupped his hands over his mouth. "No! She got hurt that's all, I mean she was about to get hit by a car, but I saved her. We went out for dinner and when i was taking her home, her parents were fighting and her abusive father threw a bottle at her....,"I stopped noticing Niall. I knew he took these types of things the hardest especially since he had a friend with an abusive father. "Your not taking her back are you?,"he quickly jumped in the conversation.
"No...of course not I-" "Zayn," I felt a pull on my Jeans. I looked down and saw Alice rubbing her eyes. "Well who's this little princess,"Harry ran towards her and picked her up. She let out a small giggle,"That's Alice, Jessica's sister," I let out a small chuckled. Harry held her across his arms and ran to the hallway while making spaceship sounds. "Well we gotta go Send Lou and Hazz back to their flat they may be to loud for the little girl to sleep,"Liam patted Niall on the back insisting him to get up. I waved them goodbye and watched them exit the front door.
"Do you work at a hospital?,"I asked him as he wrapped my hand in a bandage. "Nope, but my mom did and i picked up a few things,"he smiled and patted it once more,"you didn't have the cut deep enough to get stitches so it should be healed in about two weeks or so,"he stood up and picked up the materials from Zayn's first Aid Kit. "Harry!! We gotta go home!,"he cupped his hands around his mouth and shouted as loud as he could. Harry came running into the living room with his finger on his mouth,"shhhh! I just got Alice to go to sleep,"Lou grabbed Harry's arm and began pushing him out the door jumping on his back once they were into the hall. "Thank you Louis!!," I shouted hopping he would hear me. "Opps,"I remembered Harry telling us Alice was sleeping.
I kept my gaze for a few minutes realizing those boys were strange, but nice. Zayn sat next to me and turned on the T.V. "so you guys don't share a house?," I asked a bit confused. "Nope, we all have our own flats, but Harry and Louis share one and the rest of us have our own, we all live in the same building though,"he popped a chip in his mouth. "Oooh,"I yawned. He grabbed a pillow from the couch and sat it across his lap giving it a little pat. "Go to sleep,"he smiled and handed me a blanket. I wrapped myself in the warm blanket and laid my head on the pillow. I felt a rush of relaxation run through my body. "So how's your hand?,"Zayn asked while lightly picking it up. "It's fine it's just throbbing though,"I laughed seeing his reaction,"ewwww," he gently put it down and joined me. "Alright go to sleep," he moved my hair to the side keeping it out of my face.
I felt little shocks go through me with every touch. I felt comfortable around him, like I've meet him or known him before. I couldn't be falling in love with him could I? Is it possible to like someone you barely know?
