The Only Exception

It's Zayn Malik before One Direction. Zayn and Lucy develop a relationship despite their popularity statuses. They love each other, but is it worth losing friends and family? Will their struggle to cope with outside forces end up in vain or will they have the happily ever after?


18. Losing Sucks


“Zayn, come on,” Lucy said, taking hold of my hand. I sighed and looked back up at her.

“I don’t want to,” I moaned. After school was over, we headed towards the park. It was getting dark, but just the thought of having to stand up made my legs go weak.

“Zayn, moping around isn't going to do anything. We’re just waiting around for someone to solve this.”

I stood up reluctantly. “Lucy, he’s gone. I wasn't ready to say goodbye. I was even planning a party for him. His very first one, by the way,” I cried. Lucy only looked back, not saying anything. “He’s the only one that truly understands. You can say you don’t care about being outcast, but guess what; me and Jared lived each day actually not giving a crap about what the likes of you did. I’m the school freak who got lucky and dated the rich, popular girl. Lucy, the truth is, you and I will never have what me and Jared did.” I sighed and stepped back from Lucy.

“Excuse me for being born rich and popular. Excuse me for not doing drugs and other dumb crap. Zayn, I know it’s hard for you to have to deal with this, but that doesn't mean you have to be so mean about it.”

“Lucy, I know Jared told me not to blame you, but you can’t dodge the truth. If I wasn't hanging out with you so much, then I would be with Jared keeping him in line. This wouldn't have happened if you and I didn't have to hide our relationship for so long, forcing us to hang out outside of school. Time that I would have usually spent with Jared!” I said, finding myself on the verge of yelling.

“I can’t believe you, Zayn. I thought you were different from everyone else, but it turns out that you’re not. When you find yourself in trouble, you’re ready to point fingers. Zayn, it’s not my fault that you wanted to hide this. I was only doing what you thought was right. You know what, I’m having a really hard time deciding if I should let it slide because you’re really upset or if I shouldn't because you’re acting really immature. It’s not my fault,” she said, and with that, she walked away, but immediately slumped her shoulders as she began crying. She continued walking and then she was out of sight.

I had lost two very important things on the same day.
