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.


31. Liam's Heart

I sat there on the chair for a few minutes and then Zayn walked up to me, "Hey, I'm sorry I made you go on the slide. I thought you would have fun, I really am sorry."

I really wanted to forgive him ,I knew I should I was mad at him for no reason. But I just wanted to be mad. "It really scared me Zayn. I seriously thought I was going to die." I looked up at him, I swore if he laughed at that I would get my things and leave right now. But he didn't he sat down next to me and rubbed my back.

"I really am sorry. I shouldn't have made you go on it. I won't make you do anything you don't want to do again. I never wanted you to feel uncomfortable." He looks into my eyes.

"Okay." I whisper.

"So you forgive me?" 

I smile, "Yes I forgive you." He hugs me and stands up.

"You wanna go swimming?" He asks holding out his hand.

"Nah, I'll be there in a few minutes." I say and lay down on my stomach. 

I stand there for a few more seconds, "What's that?" He asks. I look up at him and see he's pointing to my back.

I turn my head and see what he's pointing at. He's pointing at my tattoo. Yes, I have a tattoo. It says 'I'm Perfectly Imperfect. Accept me for who I am because I'm not changing anytime soon.'

I look at him and see he's smiling at me, "When did you get that?"

"A year ago." I say. I got it a few weeks after my mum left. When my dad started abusing me and calling me names. I tried to think positive and even got this tattoo to remind me to always think of myself as being great, but that only lasted a month before I started believing what he would say.

"I swear if you tell my mum I have this I will kill you!"

"I won't tell her." He says. He puts his hand on my back and runs his thumb across the tattoo. I giggle because it tickles. I sit up and look at him.

"How in the world did I end up with a great guy like you?" I ask him. He laughs at me and pulls me onto his lap. I lean down and kiss him, he smiles and wraps his hands around my waist. I pull back, "C'mon lets go swimming!"

We get up and walk over to the lazy river. We grab tubes and run over to the start, we jump into the tubes and float along the river letting the water carry us. Zayn grabs my leg and pulls me over to him so we are floating side by side. 

"Do not tip me over!" I tell him.

He puts on a shocked face, "Layla I would never think of doing that! I can't believe you think I would!" I laugh at him and splash him. "I wouldn't do that!" Zayn warns. I splash him again and he lounges towards me. I push away from him but am stuck because of the people in front of us. He grabs me off the tube and puts me on his lap. 

I try to wiggle out but he holds me tight, "I warned you!" He tells me. 

I smile at him and cross my arms and pout. He pinches my cheek which makes me laugh.

"See, you can never be mad at me!" 

"You want to test that out?" I ask raising my eye brows.

"Nope, I'm fine." He says. I lean back against him and close my eyes. The sun beats down on us as we float along with the water.


We pull up to Zayn and Niall's flat and we all pile out of the van. We all had fun at the water park, Niall got a sunburn and his face is all red. We walk into their flat and we all sit down on the couches. We turn on the telly and watch what ever is on. I look at the time and see that I have to leave. 

"Jordan, I'm gonna go now. Do you wanna come with me?" I say to Jordan.

"No, I can stay for a little while longer."

"Aw, c'mon Lay. You really have to leave?" Zayn whines.

"Yes, I do. I will text you later." I give him a kiss on the check and walk to the door.

"Bye!" I say to everyone.

"Bye!" they reply. I walk out and get a taxi. I really had fun with the guys today, Liam seemed sad that Louis, Zayn, and Harry all had girlfriends and he didn't have Kelli. I don't know if he could ever forget her. The only way for him to forget her is if she never talks to him, which would also make him really sad. I just hopped that Kelli did the right thing by leaving, she broke many hearts. Pretty much destroyed Liam's.
