Show Me Love (1D Fanfiction)

Zara Edwards wasn't really normal . She couldn't speak . At all . Ever since her uncle strangled her when he was drunk . The neighbors saved her and she was sent to a children care home . Her parents ,well, they ditched her and left with no goodbye or news.
One day , as she sits alone at a table at Starbucks , a guy came up to her and flirts .
She was in cloud nine , because he was one of the boyband members from One Direction that she had been crushing on.
They started going out and soon they were together .
What she didn't know was that all of that was an act . It was only just a bet.
What would happen to Zara when she knew this ?
And what happens when one of the others regretted it and started falling for her ?
Will it be the end ?
Or only the beginning of a little crazy story ?


1. Pranks and Walks

"Hey look ! It's the mute girl ."

"EWW oh gross!"

I sighed and ignored them . Well , it's not like i could talk anyway . If only i could.

Thank God it was the last day of school ,i thought as i stopped in front of my locker and unlock it .


I stood there , shocked and covered with slime . I hear laughter all around me . I gritted my teeth and slammed the locker door and dashed out of school.

When i was in the middle of the lawn , someone stopped me . I looked up and saw that it was my friend , Liza Villegas.

"What happened? Are you okay ?" she says . I couldn't take it anymore and i started crying as she embraced me.

"It's okay . School's over , and soon you'll be in college . Just a convocation , and you're free to go ." she says . 

I nodded slightly . Then we started walking to her car and we drove away from the school that i had been dying to leave since freshman year.

I poked her shoulder and gestured to the slime staining her brand new car.

She smiles . "No it's fine . I can send it to the car wash anytime anyway." she says .

I bit my lip guiltily. She's the only true friend that i have . I really love her . She was a year older than me and had already started going to college a year ago , but she still visits me and picks me up from school everyday . 

We finally arrive at her house . It was simple , completed with a garden in front of it . A woman around her forties looked up and saw us .

She stops the ignition and we went out . I smiled up to the woman , Liza's mother , Mrs.Villegas.

"Aww , Zara . What did they do to you?" Mrs.Villegas say ; a concerned emotion plastered on her face. She had her brown hair up in a loose bun and her warm black eyes stared me down.

I shook my head and gave her a small smile. "It's okay Mom . I'll bring her up to my room so she can clean up . And then i'm going to send her back to the Care Home." Liza says . 

She nodded and let us through . We went up the stairs until we reached the second landing , where we looked up at a trapdoor . Liza pulls the rope and out came a ladder and an opening to it. We went up the ladder and into her room.

It was in the attic , and it was beautifully decorated , just like her personality. Her room was epic , since it has a bathroom to it and a walk-in closet room .

I went into the bathroom as Liza plops down onto her bed.

I locked the door and strips from my clothes and stepped into the shower . My tears mixed with the water .

"Hey Zara . I'll be down stairs okay ? I have your clothes laid out on the bed ." she calls in . Then i heard her go down the ladder and closing the trapdoor above her.

I washed off the slime from my golden hair and blow-dried it . I went out of the bathroom and looked around at the empty room and saw clothes laid out on the bed.

There was a high-waist shorts and a tank top along with undergarments . Oh God , she expects me to wear this ?

I sighed and slipped into the clothes , thinking that there wasn't any other way . I combed my hair and put it up on a loose bun.

I wish this day will get better,i thought as i climbed down the ladder.





"Liza !" i hear Mom call out as i lay out the clothes for Zara . "Yeah ?" i call out . "Come downstairs for a second!" she says .

I knocked on the bathroom door and calls out,"Zara ! I'll be downstairs okay . I already laid down your clothes on the bed." and went down the ladder and closing the trapdoor.

I dashed down the stairs and into the kitchen . "Yeah Mom ?" i say . She was looking happy .

"What do you think of your Dad and I adopting Zara ?" she says . I was blank.

It slowly registers and my eyes bulged . "Really ?" i squeaked . "Yes , honey." Dad says ; grinning as he looked at Mom  and back at me.

"Oh my God , yes yes !" i say ; jumping up and down happily. "Woah woah what's the racket?" another voice say .

We looked up and saw Tyler , my cunning 10 year-old brother. "We're going to adopt Zara." Mom says .

"WHAT ?" Tyler says and he started jumping up and down with me . Zara has always been his favorite .

Zara usually babysits him and plays games on his Xbox on weekends and ever since then , she's been his best friend .

We were so happy we didn't realize that Zara had come downstairs .





I coughed and smiled at them . They were jumping around because of something .

"Zara!" Tyler says and he dashed up to me and hugged me around my waist. I beamed . 

"Come on . I'll send you home." Liza says ; her face glowing . I gave her a look .

She shook her head . I waved goodbye to them and we went out of the house . I really didn't want to go back home.

We drove away from the house and finally arrived at the Care Home . I hugged her goodbye and smile gratefully to her . 

She waves and drove away . I sighed and turned around - not towards the Care Home- and walked down the London street .

I went into my favorite Cafe , Starbucks and went to an empty table .

I ordered for a strawberry and creme frappucino and sat back and gazed out of the cafe .

"Here's your order , miss." a voice say . I look up and saw the waitress handing me my frappucino . 

I smiled gratefully and paid for the drink. I slurped on it , thinking about how my life is difficult.

"Hi!'' a voice say . I looked up from my drink and saw a very familiar guy with curly brown hair and green eyes .

Harry Styles.




"You lads shouldn't do this you know." i say ; looking at them betting . "Aw Liam , relax . It's just a bet." Louis say .

"But what about the girl ?" i say ; shooting a worried look at Zayn , who was torn between joining in and going against it as he reluctantly take out his wallet.

"50 Euros if i get the girl to go out with me , 100 Euros if i get her to be mine and 300 Euros if i get to break her heart." Harry says . 

"Deal." they all say . Zayn shot me an apologetic look as he mutters ,"Deal." I sighed and massaged the bridge of my nose . 

Jokes are great , but this is just going too far.

I shot them an angry look and sip on my caramel frappucino.

Harry stands up , plastered on his famous smirk and walked up to the beautiful girl with brown hair that she dip-dyed blonde at the ends and olive skin.

"I hate you guys really." i say ; standing up and walked away . 




"Hi!" i greeted her . My first impression was that she was beautiful . She had brown hair that turns blonde at the ends , full lips and most of all , amazing light brown eyes .

Her eyes bulged . Let the fangirl begin . I smirked . Then she smiled at me slightly . 

That's all ? Weird. I sit down in front of her and asks ,"What's your name beautiful ?" i ask her . She gestured for me to wait .
I sighed . She probably wanted to tweet about meeting me .

She took out a pen and wrote something on the Starbucks tissue . She finished and hold it out for me .
What ? Is it her number ?

It wrote :

I'm mute . And my name's Zara.

My jaw dropped .Realizing it , i quickly recomposed myself . "I'm Harry Styles." i say ; clearing my throat and smiling at her .

Her blank face was finally decorated with a dazzling smile .

My heart thumped loudly in my ears . "So um , you, wanna go out with me sometimes Zara ?" i asked her shyly . 

Wait , shyly ? What the hell's wrong with you Harry ? You're supposed to make her fall for you instead of vice versa!

She turns thoughtful and looked at me with her light brown eyes . She shakes her head and stands up .

"What ?" i say ; not believing that i had just been rejected . That is totally a first honestly . 

She gave me an apologetic look and walked away with her drink , her cheeks tinted slightly.

I sat there , shocked at what had just happened . 

From out of the corner of my eye, i saw three silhoutte getting into the seat in front of me.

"So did you get her ?" Niall say . I sighed and leans back onto the seat . I shook my head . And they burst out laughing . 

I glared at them and they kept quiet . I noticed Liam wasn't here . 

"If she wants to play hard to get , then fine . I didn't say i'm giving up just yet." i say determinedly .

"But Har-." Zayn started to say . "Mark my words." i say ; standing up and walking away with my drink, feeling very angry for some reason.





What the hell is wrong with you Harry ? What did she do to deserve this ?

I stormed through the street , not really noticing where i was going . I bumped into someone . I looked up and saw that it was the girl from the bet.

"I'm so sorry." i say ; picking up her bag and handing it to her.

"I'm Liam Payne." i say ; giving her a smile . "How about you ?" i asked her . 

She smiled and hand out a piece of tissue . "What ? Is there something on my face?" i say .

She giggled and shook her head . She points her forefinger onto a sentence scribbled on the piece of tissue.

I'm mute . And my name's Zara.

She must have written it when she met Harry . I looked up at her and smiled . She's mute...

"Do you want to hang out sometimes ? Well , if you want to . You know , you could come over and watch Toy Stories with me and Zayn ." i say ; beaming up at her.

She smiles .





He was so arrogant! I mean , who does he think he is ? Fine , maybe he's hot and all , and most of all , he's Harry Styles .

But really , i'm not that cheap . I sighed and turned on a corner.

I bumped into someone and my bag slipped from my hands and onto the pavement. I looked up and saw that it was Liam Payne .

"I'm so sorry." he says as he picks up my bag and hands it to me. "I'm Liam Payne." he says ; giving me a warm smile .

"How about you ?" he asks . I hastily took out the piece of tissue that i had write on and gave it to him.

"What ? Is there something on my face?" he says ; dabbing on his face with the tissue . I giggled and shook my head.

I point at the writing on the tissue and he reads it . His mouth formed and 'O' and he smiled at me.

"Do you want to hang out sometimes ? Well , if you want to . You know , you could come over and watch Toy Stories with me and Zayn ."he says ; beaming up at me.

I blinked and smiled at him . 

He sounds sweet and friendly , i thought . 

I nodded and he grins widely .

"Can i have your number ?" he asks . I nodded as he hands out his phone . I typed my phone number into his phone and saved it under Zara Edwards.

He snaps a picture of me and grins .

"See you soon then , love." he says ; waving goodbye as he walks away from me .

Oh God . I have a feeling this is going to be outrageous.
