My Friend Mac.

Zayn Malik is a lonely, shy and bullied boy with no friends and not much of an aim in life either! Things only get worse when he finds out his Father joins the army and is posted to Afghanistan, one of the most dangerous war zones you could imagine. Zayn is absolutely heartbroken and worried for his Dad, but before leaving, his father decides that Zayn needs a friend and a companion, he decides to take Zayn to their local dog and cat rescue Shelter where Zayn finds a 3 year old mongeral who is due to be put down as no one seems to want a stray like him, he doesn't even have a name! Zayn however quite likes this dog and decides he can't bear to just leave the dog at the shelter to die so he takes him home and names him "Mac".

As time goes by, Mac and Zayn love eachother so much. But what happens when the family are forced to move away and leave Mac? Mac escapes and embarks on the long journey home. Will he make it? Will Zayn even recognise his dog?


5. Celebrations.

Zayn's POV

It was the day of my birthday, and we were gonna be celebrating with a party too as my birthday was on a Saturday.  I was kinda looking forward to it as Uncle Steve, Aunt Fiona, Aunt Mai and Grandma Josie were all coming, as well as Josh Devine, a family friend who was the only one outside of my family who I got only really well with.  He knew about my bullying, but I'd insisted that he didn't tell my parents as I was scared Eddie would hurt me more if I revealed my secrets.  Although Josh wasn't so keen on the idea, he'd agreed with it just as long as I let him treat my whip wounds, which was fair enough cos untreated, they stang like complete fuck!

I was a bit nervous today too, as Dad had insisted that I invite Eddie because his Dad and my Dad got along pretty well.  Eddie was also bringing along some friends, greeeaaaat!  I'll probably only get a sore eye as it's my birthday. 

To be honest, seventeen didn't feel any different than sixteen.  I was eighteen that I was really looking forward too, cos it meant that when I'm eighteen I'll be done with School and I can move away to go to university and I'll never have to face my bullies again.  But for now, I'm stuck with 'em!

'Hi Zayn!'  I looked and smiled as I saw Josh coming up the driveway.

'Joshie! Hey!!'  I good up and let me pull him into a friendly hug but winced as he patted my back, luckily he didn't notice.

'How's it going, man?'

'Pretty good.'

'Happy Birthday!'  He said cheerfully and handed me a box wrapped in blue wrapping paper with a red ribbon on the top.

'Aw jee, thanks!  You didn't have to!'

'It's fine, it was no trouble getting, really!  Anyway, bet you excited for today, eh?'

'Errr.... Sure.'

'What's up?'

'Urgh, just my Dad's invited Mr George so Eddie's coming along with a few friends.'  Josh sighed and hugged me again.

'Aw man, just keep strong mate, alright?'  To assure him, I gave a little smile and nodded.  He pulled away and patted my shoulder.  'Atta boy!  Listen, I'm ganna go inside to say hey to your parents, you coming in?'

'Later.  Look's like I've got company.'  I said, nodded my head towards Eddie and his gang coming up the driveway.

'Right... Well, do you want me to take the present?'

'Yeah, It'll be safer in your hands.'  I chuckled, handing the box back to him.

'Alright, see you in a bit mate!'

'Yeah, see ya.'  I gulped as Josh left and Eddie approached.

'Alright there, faggot?'

'Uh, hey guys.  errr, how's it going?'  I said nervously, keeping my head down.

'Ew, the little shit spat on me.'  Technically, I didn't.

'Just forget him man, come on, let's play ball!'  They ran into my garden and started kicking the ball around.

'Hey Malik!!'  I didn't even have time to look before the ball slammed right onto my nose, making it hurt pretty bad.  I clutched it and groaned while the boys just snickered and laughed at me.

'Why don't ya catch it, ya big baby?!' 

'Ah, forget about him he's ain't worth it.'  Finally, they left.  I waited for my nose to heal before heading back inside to my family and Josh.

An hour later, I was actually enjoying myself!  We'd had some cake and party food and all my presents were absolutely brilliant! I got a rugby ball from Josh, some cool music from Uncle Steve, my favourite book "Lassie Come Home" from Grandma Josie, a cool hat and shirt from Aunt Mai, a set of bow ties from Aunt Fiona, a slingshot set from my Dad and a stuffed toy Dog from Mum, which looked exactly like Doniya's old little toy dog Waddles, so that's what I decided to call him.

Soon after, everyone left and I went up to my room. 

'Zayn?'  Dad came into my room.  'Come on down.  We're going out for one final birthday present.'

'Really?  Where?'  He chuckled and winked at me

'You'll see, it's a surprise.'
