Holding on to what I have

Layla looks like any other teenage girl, she's pretty with long brown hair and green eyes. She's smart and has plenty of friends. But that's just the outside, on the inside she's breaking. Her parents just got a divorce and she lives with her dad who abuses her. Her mom just moved to London, Layla has had enough and she runs away and goes to her mother's house. While she's there she runs into the one and only Zayn Malik. She becomes friends with hum, but it seems like there is a romance brewing between him and her. Will she be too scared to let him into her life? Or will she finally open up to someone and let them in, let them help her with everything that has happened.


27. Dinner with Everyone

After Niall came back from the kitchen we watched a movie. Half way through the movie my phone rang, I tried to get up to answer it but Zayn wouldn't let go of me. I looked at him and he picked me up again and carried my into the kitchen. I answered the phone, it was my mum.

"Hey hun. I'm on my way home."

"Okay, I'm at Zayn and Niall's place right now. But I will be home soon."

"Okay, what are you doing at Zayn and Niall's place?" My mum asks with a little giggle. Zayn hears her and kisses my cheek.

"We are just watching a movie." I say

"Just, watching a movie?" She asks trying to get more out of me. Zayn laughs as he kisses my forehead.

"Yes, mum. Just watching a movie. I will be home soon."

"Why don't you invite Zayn and the guys over for dinner?"

I look at Zayn, he nods his head, "Zayn will come. Let me ask the guys." I try to wiggle out of Zayn's grasp but he won't go.

He carries me over to the guys and says, "Hey, Layla's mum wants to know if you guys want to come over to her flat for dinner."

Niall's face lights up, "YES! I love you Layla's mum!"

I hear my mum laugh on the other end. Everyone else says 'yes.'

"Everyone wants to go." I tell her.

"Okay. Be home as soon as you can. I'm walking up to the building now."

"Okay, bye."

"Bye." I hang up and put my phone in my back pocket, which is kind of hard to do when Zayn is still holding me.

"Now will you please put me down?" I ask him.

"Only because you asked nicely." He says. But before he sets me down he kisses me, he holds the back of my neck so I can't pull away. When he finally pulls away he sets me back down on the ground and smiles at me.

"Zayn, you're crazy."

"You're just now realizing this?" He asks me.

"No, I just thought now would be a good time to tell you!" I say with a laugh.

We all gather our things and head to the door.

"We parked in the alley, so we have to go through the back again." Zayn tell me and the guys.

"Okay, but try not to get 'side tracked'." Harry says with a cheeky smile.

I push Harry and walk with Zayn back to his room. He opens the window and we climb out. The cold air of the night hit's my in the face and the wind blows my hair back. I stand on the ledge and lean out looking at all the lights of the city, It's beautiful! Zayn goes down the ladder before me and when he reaches the ground I start down the ladder. When I get near the bottom he picks me up and sets me on the ground.

"I would have gone down the last few steps by myself." I say.

"I know, but I wanted to help you." He takes my hand and leads to the car. He opens the passenger door and I crawl in. He closes the door and walks over to the driver's side. He gets in ans starts the engine.

I feel my phone vibrate and see a text from Harry,

Hey, why don't you invite Jordan over?

I think that would be a good idea, I don't remember even telling my mum that Jordan was in London.

 I think I will.

I text Jordan,

Hey, wanna come over and have dinner at my place? Harry will be there!

She replies almost instantly,

Yeah! I will be there in 30.

I smile, "Jordan's coming over as well." I tell Zayn.

"Good, now Harry won't be complaining about how I brought you to the studio."

I smile at him and he brushes a strand of my hair behind my ear.


We pull up to my building right after the others do. We get out of the car and head to the building. We walk to the elevator and press my floor. Zayn makes sure I'm standing next to him and he's holding my hand. We walk over to my door and I open it. 

I'm greeted with the aroma of spices and chicken. I crinkle my nose at them smell of the chicken. Even smelling meat makes me sick.  We walk in and the guys all sit down on the couch except for Zayn who stays by my side holding my hand. We walk into the kitchen and I see my mum cooking.

"Hey!" I call as I come up behind her. I learned a lesson when I was little to never stand directly behind my mum when she's cooking when she doesn't know you're there. Once I stood behind her when she was cutting an apple and I said 'Hi' she jumped and when she turned around the knife came really close to cutting me, it really scared me and I never did that again!

"Hey sweetie!" My mum says. She turns around and sees Zayn.

"Hello Zayn." She says with a smile.

"Hi  Ms. Kenzie." He says.

"Please call me Jess." Zayn nods and smiles. He rubs his thumb over my hand and pulls me closer to hi. My mum smiles at us, "Dinner will be ready in about half an hour."

"Okay, oh and I hope you don't mind but I also invited one more person."

"Who?" My mum asks.

"Jordan, remember her?"

"Yes! She's in London?"

"Yeah, she's visiting her aunt."

"How wonderful!"

Zayn and I walk out into the den and sit on the love seat next to the couch. 

"How long until Jordan gets here?" Harry whines.

"Probably 10 minutes."

"She needs to be here now!" He says.

"What, do you miss her?" I ask, using a baby voice.

"Yes, I do." Harry says. 

"You talked to her this morning!" Zayn said.

"Well yesterday 20 minutes after we got home from the cafe you were complaining about missing Layla!" Harry shoot back. 

I look at Zayn and he blushes. I hug him and rest my head on his shoulder. I hear a knock at the door and Harry jumps up to open it. Jordan steps in and Harry hugs her while she giggles. My mum walks in and looks at Harry and Jordan.

"Are you two....?" My mum says.

Jordan smiles at her, "Yup!" Harry say proudly.

"Wow, you two are really cute together." Jordan blushes and Harry pinches her cheek causing her to squeal. She pinches Harry's dimples and he laughs at her.

"I can see how this bothers you when Zayn and I do that." I tell Niall. He only laughs and nods his head. 

About 20 minutes later my mum calls from the kitchen, "Dinner is ready!" Niall runs over there to be the first one.

Zayn and I walk hand in hand over to the table and we sit next to each other. Harry and Jordan st across form us, My mum at the end closer to Niall and Liam, and Louis at the other end closer to me. We all get out food, of course I don't get any chicken, and we all eat happily. Zayn holds my hand the entire meal.
