Friday Night

20 year old Gabrielle (Gaby) went clubbing with her best friend, Sierra. There she met Zayn. When Zayn invited Gaby over to his table she refused, but that didn't stop Zayn from trying.

3. Stood Up


I texted him back 'Hey Zayn. No it's not too late. I would love to (:' A few minutes later he replied 'Ok. I'll meet you at Ketchup at 8 (: xx' Then it hit me. Tonight I were going out with Zayn Malik. But I wasn't going to give him special treatment just because he was famous. 
It was only 3 pm so I had a few hours to chill. An hour later Sierra walked through the door. She plopped on the couch next to me smelling like cigarettes and beer. 

"How was your night?" I asked
"It was fine. I think me and Chace are dating now"
"Aww! How cute. But I have some news of my own"
"What?"
"Zayn asked me to go to dinner with him tonight" I couldn't help but smile when I said it. 
"What?!  Really? Aw we can both have boyfriends at the same time"
"He isn't my boyfriend Sierra"
"Right. After dinner he'll be your boyfriend" 
"Haha shuttup" 
Around 6 I started to get ready. I didn't know what to wear since I hadn't been on a date in a while. The last guy I dated was Kendall and we broke up when I was 16. It didn't seem like it had been 2 years since I went on a date. I didn't care though, I much rather enjoyed my own company. 
"Sierra! I need your help! I don't know what to wear!" I screamed from your closet. She walked in to help me
"See this is why you need to go on dates more. So you'll know what to wear"
"Not happening" I joked. Sierra looked through all of my dresses, staring at each in great detail. Then she pulled out a blue lace dress with a black belt. 
"Here. Wear this" she said handing me the dress
"Are you sure?"
"Yes I'm sure. Now try it on with black heels" I tried it on and decided that it looked fine so I did my hair and makeup quickly. It was already 7:35 by the time I found an outfit and I didn't want to be late. I left the house around 7:50 and made my way to Ketchup. When I got there it was 8:05 and Zayn wasn't there so I just sat and waited. 20 minutes passed buy so I called him. He didn't answer so I left a voicemail
"Hey Zayn. Where are you? Call me back when you get this" I waited another 20 minutes then got up and left. I could not believe Zayn stood me up. Actually I could believe it I just didn't want to. 
When I got back to your apartment  it was empty so I just went upstairs and changed. Sierra left a sticky note on my mirror and it said 'Left my phone at Chace's. We're going bowling tonight. I hope you had fun on your date with Zayn. I'll be home around 1- Sierra<3' I thought to myself 'hope you had fun on your date with Zayn'. He was such as ass hole. He stood me up. I looked like such an idiot in the restaurant for sitting by myself 40 minutes. The first date I had an 2 years and the guy stands me up. Honestly I wasn't surprised. Zayn just proved to me he was the douchebag I always thought he was.

 

*Zayn's P.O.V*

Me and the boys had a rehearsal for our performance of the Today show. We had a bunch of interviews all day and I  didn't really like them. It was just listening to different people ask the same questions. The only thing I liked about today was that Gaby agreed to go to dinner tonight. She was amazing. I loved the fact that she treated me like a normal person. 

When we got back to the hotel I was really exhausted from working all day and I had a few hours before my date with Gaby so I decided to take a nap.  I woke up to Niall banging on my door. He wouldn't stop until I answered it. 
"What do you want man?" I said opening up the door 
"You wanna come out with me and Louis tonight?"
"No. I have a date"
"With who?" Niall asked 
"Remember that girl that I tried to get a few nights ago?" Niall nodded his head "her"
"Oh alright. What time is your date?"
"8"
"Zayn it's 10"
"What?"
"Yeah it's 10. You were asleep for a long time" 
"Shit" I sighed under my breath. I closed the door in Niall's face. 
Fuck. I didn't think I'd actually sleep for 5 hours. I felt really bad so I called Gaby but it went to voicemail. I kept calling her but she still didn't answer. After the 5th call I gave up and left a voicemail. I just ruined my chance of dating the most down to earth girl I've ever met. 

*Gaby's P.O.V*

Being so pissed off at the fact the Zayn stood me up I decided to stay in for the rest of the night.  I walked around the apartment in sweatpants and a sports bra because I was to lazy to find a shirt. A marathon of friends was on so I decided to watch that. Sierra came home around 12:30 and I was still up. 
"Don't you have school tomorrow. Why are you still up?" she asked. 
"Yeah but not till 11. I can't sleep"
"So how was your date with Zayn"
"It didn't happen"
"What?!"
"Yeah. He didn't show up" I sighed 
"Why not? Did he call you or anything?"
"Nope. Just stood me up"
"Aw I'm sorry baby. He's an ass"
"Haha yeah. I'm gonna go to bed its late"
I walked upstairs to my room and laid down. Checking my phone I had 5 missed calls from Zayn and a voicemail so I decided to listen to it. 'Gaby I'm so sorry I didn't show up! I swear it wasn't on purpose! We were working all day and so I took a nap and when I woke up it was 10! Please don't hate me. If you show up to our Today show performance I know you'll give me another chance. I'll put your name on the list. Please Gaby just-' the voicemail ended. I told myself I wasn't going to give Zayn any special treatment because he's famous. So I decided I would do what I would with any other guy. 


-the next morning-

*Zayn's P.O.V*

After we performed on the Today show we chilled out on set. It was out first big US performance and we were all still buzzing. Well the boys were buzzing. I was just worried about Gaby showing up. I decided to sneak out of the room to try and find her. Paul saw me was calling me back into the dressing room because we weren't supposed to be to be wandering around on set but I had to find her. There was this girl walking around that looked like she was looking for someone. She looked like Gaby from behind. Wait no not like that. Well let's be honest she did. I continued to walk towards the girl. Please just let it be her. 

 

I walked up to her and put my hand on her shoulder. The girl turned around and I let out a deep sigh. It wasn't Gaby

"I'm sorry. I thought you were someone I knew"
"Oh my god. But I know you! Your Zayn. Can I get a picture"
"Yeah sure"
I took a picture with her then started walking back to the dressing room. I was so disappointed about Gaby showing up. She was the only girl I've actually liked since we've been in America. Paul was standing outside the dressing room with his arms crossed, he looked pissed. 
"Zayn. What the hell were you thinking? They told you not to wonder off and you did" he said firmly 
"Sorry. I was looking for someone"
"Well it doesn't matter. We're leaving now"

*Gaby's P.O.V*

I woke up around 9:45 and realized I had overslept. I was planning on going to see One Direction perform on the Today show and talk to Zayn about last night, but it was too late now. School started at 11 and it was the week before exams so I didn't want to miss anything. I still felt bad about not seeing Zayn. He called me 5 times and in the voicemail he left he seemed really sincere. If I had met with him I would've been giving him special treatment because I wouldn't have done that for any other guy. But maybe I actually had feelings for Zayn. I was so confused about the whole situation I just wanted to put it all behind me. Before leaving for school I texted Zayn 'I couldn't make it to the peformance. I overslept like you did last night but I forgive you (:' 

*Zayn's P.O.V*

We were all sitting in the car on the way back to the hotel and I couldn't stop thinking about how Gaby didn't show up. I mean I tried calling her 5 times. That's perseverance right? All of a sudden my phone started ringing so I dug it out of my pocket. When I saw it was a text from Gaby my face lit up. The text said that she couldn't make it to the performance because she overslept and that she forgave me about last night. I didn't wanna text her back so I called her. 
"Hello?" she said 
"Hey Gaby do you really forgive me?" I asked 
"Haha yes I forgive you"
"Let me make it up to you"
"How?"
"By taking you out tonight. And actually showing up"
"Haha okay. But I have to go now. I'm at school. Bye Zayn"
"Okay bye"
Once I got off the phone I couldn't stop smiling. I was buzzing about our date tonight. She actually gave me another chance. 

We pulled up to the hotel and we went straight to our rooms. All of the boys went to bed again because we woke up at 6 am but I didn't. I wasn't going to miss my date again.
