Take Me Away

One her 18th birthday Arianna receive a letter in the mail. It is her parents' will entitling her to £10,000.00. This was her chance to leave her rotten parents (ones that adopted her) that abused her and mistreated her. Since she's always wanted to be a singer, Arianna applies to her dream school, (not real) Union Music Academy. It was fairly new, but popular. But when she goes, she doesn't expect to meet Zayn Malik from One Direction...and fall in love with him?


7. Unexpected Visitor


I was woken up by a knock on my door. My eyes slowly opened and I looked down. I couldn't remember how my clothes had changed or how I had gotten under the covers, I must have woken up and changed. My stomach growled as I checked the clock. 7: 43PM. I gasped and got up to open the door. I glanced at myself at the mirror on my door. Neveah had put it up there. It wasn't a floor length one. A small one really, it just showed my chest and up a bit past my head. I fixed my hair, which looked like a fluffy mess, then opened the door. To my surprise, there stood Zayn Malik. I raised my eyebrow and smiled, trying to contain the laughter building up inside me. "I'm sorry, I didn't know you were going to sleep," Zayn said looking a little sad. "No, I actually just woke up," I said sheepishly. "Did you need something?" He smiled. "I was wondering if you wanted to go out for a bit... you know, like shop or something, and I could show you around since you're new and stuff..." I could see him blush a bit and look at his shoes. He was wearing a black zip up hoodie with white drawstrings, and dark blue jeans. His shoes were black Supras. 

I smiled and thought of my previous shopping with Neveah. I let out a giggle and covered my mouth to stifle the laugh. He looked up with an eyebrow raised. "Well it's just that..." I started to say no, but something stopped me. Something made me feel like I should go. "I'd love to." Zayn had a big smile on his face. "Great," he said and then we just stood there. Awkwardly. "Um, why don't you come in and I'll get ready," I said leading him in and letting him sit on the sofa. I quickly made my bed then walked to my closet. "I would offer you something, but I haven't stocked up on food yet and I never checked the refrigerator if there was anything in there," I said grabbing my black Toms and a loose black T-shirt. "You can check the cabinets and fridge if you'd like. You might find something, or just tell me what's in there." We both let out a small laugh. I grab a pair of skinny, grey jeans and a grey beanie to match. "I'll try to be quick," I told him as I walked into the bathroom. 

I quickly slipped into my clothes and then I braided my hair to the side and put my beanie on. I slipped on my Toms and gave myself a quick check in the mirror. I felt weird in these clothes. I never wore these kinds of clothes before. They made me feel...cute. I looked the the counter space next to the sink. There was a black makeup bag with white polka-dots sitting there with a note attached to it. 'Snuck in while you were asleep. Forgot to give this to you yesterday! xx Neveah'. I felt a smile creep onto my face. I'd never really worn make-up before. A few time when I was really young for fun, but never after my parents' death. I unzipped the bag and found waterproof eyeliner, waterproof mascara, eye-shadows, an eyelash curler, different kinds of lipstick, and some lip-glosses. I used the the mascara, the eyeliner, and a soft pink-nude kind of lip-gloss. I zipped up the bag and put it under the sink. I looked at myself in the mirror. I looked quite presentable, in the good way. Then I walked out and said, "I'm ready."



I waited for Arianna to finish up in the bathroom. I felt nervous, and a bit embarrassed to be there. It wasn't really right, since I had a girlfriend, but in a way it didn't feel wrong. It wasn't like I was doing anything. And I didn't have any of those kinds of feelings for her. I just thought she was kind of cute. She was nothing compared to Perrie, my girlfriend. 

I jumped a bit as her melodic voice rang out. I turned my head to see her walk up to me looking so beautiful in such casual clothes. I almost forgot why I was there. "R-Right, let's go," I said, pulling out a pair of shades and a beanie from my pocket. I put them on and we walked out. 

"Did you get yourself a phone?" I asked, adding a hint of laughter. "Oh shoot! I had completely forgotten!" she said. "Ha ha, no worries. If you'd like, we can go get you one?" I questioned. She looked up at me and smiled. "That sounds like a good idea." We got into my car and started driving away from the school. Arianna seemed a bit tense in the car. She kind of looked afraid. "Something wrong?" I asked, a bit concerned. "Well it's just that... I've never really been in a car in a long time," she said blushing. I couldn't help but let out a small laugh. "That's cute," I said without thinking. Then it got silent. "Can we turn on the radio?" she said. I turned it on and instantly "As Long As You Love Me"- by Justin Beiber came on. I couldn't help but sing along. Halfway through the song, Arianna started tapping to the beat on her thigh. Then it ended and the announcer said the name of the song then played the next song. "I liked that song," Arianna said smiling up at me. "That was Justin Beiber for you, Niall's favorite," I said. Then I remembered she wasn't a directioner. "Niall's-" "The blondie who plays guitar very well," she said. I was a bit surprised. "I thought you didn't know who One Direction was," I said. "I didn't, but Neveah showed my some videos of you guys last night. She also gave me a CD to listen to," she said happily. "I became a directioner over night, you could say." We both laughed. 



Zayn took me to a phone store and I couldn't decide which phone to get. "Get the new iPhone 5," Zayn recommended. I shook my head, "That's too expensive, I don't have a job yet either so I need to get something cheaper." His eyes lit up. "That reminds me, I was talking to our management, and they said that they were looking for a new singer, but you'd have to go through a few auditions," he said. I couldn't help but smile. "Really?" I asked and he nodded. "Well, if I don't get the job, buying a phone now would be kind of a waste..." I really didn't want to waste my money on anything to fancy either. Zayn frowned but then put on a smile. "Okay I'll show you some stores, why don't you wait outside, I need to get something first," he said. "Okay," I said and walked out. Luckily there was a bench for me to sit on. There was a kid sitting on it too. He looked like he was about my age, maybe younger. He was strumming a guitar and playing the tune of 'Dynamite'- by Taio Cruz. I noticed a hat on the floor with a few coins in it, and smiled a bit. I scooted closer to him and slowly hummed to the tune then started singing. A few people stopped and watched, putting money into the hat. By the time we finished, there was enough money for a decent meal, maybe more. As people left, I heard the boy say, "Thank you." I smiled and blushed a bit. "Don't mention it," I said and added £10.00 to the hat. "How come you're out here doing this?" I asked, sitting back down next to the boy. He kind of shrugged a bit. "My mum is sick... and we don't have enough money to pay for treatment... I'm trying to make some extra money for her..." I took hold of his hand, noticing tears in his eye. "That is the sweetest thing I've ever heard," I said. "I guess... I have to do this everyday... and today was the first day I could make a lot of money," he said. 

"Keep playing," I said with a smile. "You're really good, you'll make enough soon." He shrugged. "By the way, I'm Arianna." I held our my hand, which he took. "I'm Noah," he said. "Want to play one more song?" I said, I was in the singing mood. "Sure which song?" he asked. "Hmm... Let's do something by Katy Perry," I said, thinking. He kind of froze and looked at me. "How 'bout 'Part of Me'?" he asked. I smiled and nodded. Slowly he started strumming until he got the tune right and I took a deep breath. I started singing to the tune and slowly people crowded around us again. More money way placed into the hat. People were cheering at us and I couldn't help but smile.

When we finished, I heard a person clapping behind us. I turned to see Zayn in his disguise giving us a thumbs up. Noah stood up a bit shocked. He lifted up a hand and pointed at Zayn.

"That's Zayn Malik, from One Direction."
