You Light Up My World

A hidden relationship, hiding from her horrid foster parents. This is the life of Riley. The only people she can trust are the 5 biggest pop stars in the world... One Direction. When she first meets them she sees that they are the only people that can rescue her from the hell she is living through. When a relationship starts to grow between she and Zayn she realizes this is her first time she can have the happy safe future she deserves.


14. Why Are You Here?


Zayn’s POV: I woke up with a massive headache. I looked around sheepishly and saw Riley lying peacefully at the left side of the bed. Liam must have done that last night. I scooted closer to her then started rubbing her back. She lifted her head sleepily and smiled at me. Her smile faded as she held her head.

“Babe, what happened last night? My head hurts so bad.”

“Just partied a bit too hard I guess,” I said as I slowly emerged from bed and retrieved us some Advil’s. She thankfully accepted them then rested her head on my chest.

“What time is it?” She asked. I looked down at my phone and discovered it was already 1:24 pm. I showed her my phone and we both realized how much of the day we wasted.

“Well what do you want to do today?” She asked curiously

“Something that doesn’t involve thinking” I groaned. She laughed a bit agreeing then I remembered, “Hey aren’t you supposed to get your stiches out today?”

“O ya, finally!” She exclaimed excitedly.

“Do you want to go now?” I asked

“Yeah can you take me?”

            “Yeah, I was planning too” I added charmingly

We got up and both got on some comfy clothes. We loaded into the car after reading a note from the boys, it read; Hey sleepy heads we went out to the cinema to see a film hope you don’t mind, we will be back later.


Riley’s POV:  Zayn and I drove off to the hospital to get the stiches out by the doctor who examined my arm the first time.

            We walked into the waiting room and after waiting a good 20 minutes we were allowed into the doctor’s office. The doctor simply cut the stiches down and pulled them out with tweezers, something I could have done. I was pleased when the doctor gave me the okay to do things like swimming as long as I didn’t aggravate my shoulder more.  Zayn sat patiently by my side and was pleased to see I was pretty pain free and much happier with a usable arm.

We walked hand and hand down to the parking lot. As we walked into the car I turned my head hearing a familiar voice. I looked around when I saw Skylar. I ran straight to her and then hugged her. She freaked not realizing it was me then embraced me in the hug.

“Riley!!!”  Willy screamed from behind and hugged me as well. I pulled away, face to face with an elder couple worrying frantically.

            “Jacob is having a really bad asthma attack!” Skylar screamed panicking. I was freaking out and wondering how it could have happened. When the woman in the couple said, “We brought Jacob inside and he is seeing a doctor. He was wheezing and his chest was tightening shortening his breaths. The inhaler wasn’t helping so we had to bring him here, he will be okay in a hour or so, the doctor just has to give him access to clean oxygen.” I sighed in relief and she continued, “We are Skylar, Jacob, and Willy’s foster parents.  You must be Riley, they have told us a lot about you.”

            I went to shake their hands when I heard Zayn walk up behind me. I turned to him and smiled. Skylar,” I turned to her knowing she would be the most surprised, “This is my boyfriend Zayn.”

            “ W..what? You two are dating?” Skylar said stuttering, “I mean I read your letter but how… huh?” she said continuing

            “Hi Skylar, I have heard a lot about you.” Zayn said holding out his hand waiting for her to shake it. Skylar looked at him star struck. Willy whispered for me to pick him up so I did. I still couldn’t hold him in my right arm because I knew it would aggravate my shoulder, so I picked him up and he rested on my hip. He hugged me tightly and we laughed at Skylar stare at Zayn’s hand. She blinked a few times and got back to reality and shook Zayn’s hand rapidly. Zayn looked at her and laughed. Zayn was so sweet, making conversation with Skylar who was so excited she was meeting him. I continued talking to their new foster parents and we shared our worries for Jacob.

Eventually we were all in the waiting room when they asked for Jacobs’s guardian to come in. It was a bit awkward because I wanted to go but his foster parents stood up looking at me perplexed. I gave them a look saying they could go in so they walked through the doors with the doctor. Zayn noticed I was worrying so he grabbed my hand and began rubbing the top of it with his thumb trying to comfort me.  Skylar looked from my face to Zayn’s then to our hands, she grinned.

“When can we see you again?” Willy asked hoping for an answer

“Umm I don’t know Willy… Maybe your foster parents will let us all have a day out when Jacob is better.”

“Hey, we are going to the carnival with the boys and Liam’s younger brother tomorrow, how about you two come and if your other brother is better then maybe he can come too.” Zayn said graciously.  I mouthed thank you to him and he lifted up my hand, still interlocked with his; and kissed it. I smiled back at him as Willy announced, “Skylar! Let’s go with!”

“Are you sure it will be alright?” Skylar asked Zayn and I, not wanting to impose.

“As long as your foster parents are okay with it, it sounds like fun.  I replied smiling at her. I was so excited to get to spend a day with them. No trying to escape Jim like we used to, it was just going to be me and my family, my whole family; the boys (Zayn, Liam, Niall, Louis and Harry also Tessa) included.

As I was caught up in my happy thoughts Jacob walked weakly through the doors. I saw him and stood up then ran to him.

“Are you okay?” I said picking him up. He adjusted his cute little glasses and smiled.

“Just asthma, I’ll be fine. Why are you here?” He asked curiously.

“I saw Skylar in the parking lot and I just ended up being here waiting for you. The doctor came out with their foster parents. Their foster mom came up to me and declared, “The doctor said it is due to dust mites. They built up and affected his breathing.  I’m sorry this happened” She said to both me and Jacob.

“It’s okay, he looks as good as new. Do you mind if the three of them join me and my friends tomorrow at the carnival?”

“I don’t mind at all, you seem very responsible and they are lucky to have you in their lives.” She kind of sounded like a therapist because of the way she was talking, but I enjoyed how nice she was.

“Can we pick them up tomorrow at 11:00 am?” I asked

“Sure.” She rummaged through her purse a bit, “Here is our address.” She handed me a slip of paper, “I guess they will see you tomorrow then.” She added.

 I turned to Jacob who I still had in my arms. He was basically sitting up on the forearm of my good arm. I looked at him and told him to be safe tonight and that I would see him tomorrow. I hugged him good bye and then remembered to introduce him to Zayn because I hadn’t before. Zayn was super sweet to him. He high fived him and said,  “Bye little man” that made Jacob really smile.

 I admired how good Zayn was being with each of them. I said goodbye to Willy and Zayn did something similar to what he did when he said bye to Jacob. Lastly I said goodbye to Skylar. I hugged her and whispered, “You get to meet all of One Direction tomorrow… Excited?” she nodded and a smile grew on her face.

 I drove home with Zayn, awaiting the next day; which I would get to spend with Jacob, Willy, and Skylar.
