35. Choosing Sides

"Oh my God." I mumbled quietly as I rocked Lily in my arms. "What is happening..."  I paced back and forth as the boys argued in low voices. 

"I don't know what to do... Do you think it's broken?... I don't know how to take care of stuff like that, my mom does it.... Do we call 911?" I sucked my teeth and handed Lily over to Niall and grabbed Zayn's wrist firmly. I pulled him into the bathroom and searched the cabinets for wipes and peroxide. He hopped onto the counter and leaned down a bit so I could reach his nose. I wiped it gently with a wipe, and cracked a tiny smile whenever he winced. I cleaned it up and he swatted my hand away. 

"That burns!" he whined. I squeezed some ointment onto a cotton swab and got super close to his face. I could hear his steady breathing as he stared into my eyes in the sweetest way. I blinked and swallowed, then continued to concentrate on his injury. I felt his hand sneak down to my waist, and I froze. He realized that it bothered me and gently moved his hand away.

I found a large first aid kit  in one of the cabinets under the sink and pulled it out. I found some gauze and tape and cut some. I focused on my task and tried not to give in to Zayn's big brown eyes. He smirked as he heard my breathing hitch when he placed his hand on my lower back. I clenched my jaw and cleared my throat, gesturing for him to stop. When he did, I sighed and placed the homemade bandage on his nose. I stepped back to look at the work I'd done. I giggled at the big white patch on his face and he turned around to look in the mirror. We laughed together and he hopped back on his feet. 

Then suddenly, he put his arms around me and hugged me. His warmth radiated through my body as I wrapped my arms around his waist. It was as if my body wasn't listening to my brain.

Inside my head I told myself: No, Amber. He hurt you.

But then it switched around like this: ... So did Noah.

Who are you safest with? Who can protect you? ... Love you? Who's side do you choose? 

I pulled away from Zayn and looked into his eyes. Our faces were so close, that I was breathing in the air that was coming out of his mouth. A grin twitched at the ends of my mouth, and i looked down bashfully. "Excuse me." I whispered, with my eyes repeatedly flickering to his. He stepped to the side and I walked into the hallway and into the guestroom to get my stuff. I turned around with my huge bag on my shoulder and saw Zayn standing in the doorway.

"You leavin me again?" He asked quietly. I tilted my head and bit my lip. "I love you, Amber." I barely heard him, but it could my attention quickly. My head snapped up and I looked at him awkwardly. My heart started beating fast and I felt an explosion of emotions in my heart. My stomach fell into my ass and my legs felt weak. I smiled at him without saying a word. "I'll walk you downstairs."  he said, after clearing his throat. Then we walked out together.
