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.


6. Meeting Them


I wake up the next morning with the sun in my eyes. I groan and look around, where am I? Then it all come back to me. I smile and run over to my closet. I hung up all my clothes last night, the closet is huge and it looks like I barley have any clothes because of how big it is. I throw on a white tank top and a blue long sleeved shirt. I put on a jean mini-skirt and run out the door. I try to remember where the kitchen is and eventually i find it. I see my mum sitting at the table eating a muffin, "Hi mum!" I call as I go up to her. 

"Hi Lay! How'd you sleep?" She asks.

"Pretty good." I sit down next to her.

"So, I need to catch up on your life. Anything exciting? Boyfriend?" She asks setting down her muffin with a smile. 

I laugh, "No, no boyfriend." I say. I couldn't have a boyfriend, they would be wanting to go over to my house and then they would have to see my dad. I couldn't risk that.

"Fine, so how's Jackie?" She asks. I surprised she remembers Jackie. We've been friends since we were 10. 

"She's good. Her mum finally opened her restaurant." I say with a smile. She looks over at a clock and gasps.

"I am so sorry, but I have to leave now. What time do you have to be at the hotel?" She asks. Hotel, what? Oh right, I told her that my class was staying at a hotel.

"Um, 9 o'clock. But I can walk there." I say.

"Okay, I love you sweetie." She says. She kisses the top of my head and grabs her bag.

"Love you too mum. Bye!" I call after her as she heads to the door.

"Bye!" She replies as she steps out into the hallway.

I run into my room and grab my phone. I sit on my bed and stare at the ceiling  suddenly I remember Kelli and I text her,

Hey Kelli! Do you want to hang out today?

I set my phone and walked over to my make-up table. I brought a little bit of make-up with me. I put on some mascara and eye liner and I heard my phone buzz.

Yeah sure! Meet me @ the Swilson Cafe. ~Kelli Spade

I reply,

Sure! I will be there in like 15 mins

I throw my hair up in a messy bun and grab some money. I still had a lot left since the bus ticket only costed me $50. I grab my phone and shove it in my back pocket and head out the door. 


I walk into the Cafe and search for Kelli. I see her sitting at a table in the far back. I head over there and sit down, "Hey!" She says,

"Hey! I'm so hungry!" I say.

She laughs, "Me too! Wanna make it to go?" She asks.

"Sure!" The waiter comes over and we order. I got a large coffee and a blueberry muffin and Kelli gets a sweet tea and a bagel. When he returns with our food we pay and head out the door. "So, wanna go shopping?" Kelli asks. "Sure!" I say. I could go for some new clothes. We're walking don the street laughing when I bump into someone, spilling my coffee everywhere.

"Oh my gosh! I am so sorry!" I say. I grab a napkin from my muffin and hand it to the person, "It's all right." I hear the person reply, I lean down to grab the cup and look up. I stare into the beautiful brown eyes. "I-I." I stutter. ""Hey, what happened?" I hear a girl say. I look up and see that he was walking with four other guys and a girl. "You know, me being me and not paying attention to where I was going and ran into this poor girl." The guy says. The girl smiles, "Wow Zayn, that is so like you." I hear Kelli squeal beside me, "I'm sorry, but are you guys, you know One Direction?" She says with a laugh. I look at tall of them, oh no. They can't be One Direction.

"Yeah, we are." I hear the curly haired guy say. "Wow! Layla you spilled your coffee on a famous person!" Kelli says. "So your names Layla?" Zayn asks me.

I smile, "Yeah, you know we should really go," I say. "No, we should buy you another coffee, seeing as Mr. Clutz here spilled yours." The one with a buzz cut says. "Oh you don't need to..." I look at them, I honestly don't know their names. "Wait, do you even know our names?" The blonde one asks. "Um, no not really." I say as I blush. "Well I'm Niall." The blonde one says. "I'm Louis." The guy with his arm around the girl says, "I'm Liam." Say the guy with the buzz cut. "I'm Harry." Says the guy with curly hair. "And I'm Zayn." I laugh.

I turn to the girl, "And who are you?" I ask. The girl is actually really pretty, she had dark brown hair and redish highlights, and her eyes are brown. "I'm Abi." The girl says. "Yeah, she's my girl." Louis says. "Yes Lou, we know. You like to rub it in our faces that you are the only one with a girl friend." Says Harry. "Doesn't look like Zayn will be single for long." I hear Niall say. I look at Zayn and see that he's staring into  my eyes. I blush and he looks away, "Shut up." He says to Niall. Niall laughs, "So how bout that coffee?" Liam asks looking at Kelli. I turn to Kelli and she her blushing. "Sure." I say.

I walk with them and Kelli to a coffee shop. I realized that Zayn was standing next to me the whole time. I ordered my coffee and Zayn paid, "I still don't see why you should be buying me a coffee when I should be the one buying you a new shirt." I say. Zayn laughs, "I'm sure Zayn would love it if you helped him pick out a shirt." Harry says. Zayn punches him in the arm and blushes. "Aw, look he's blushing!" Liam says. "Shut up!" He tells them. I laugh and look at him. He was really cute and seemed like a good person, I didn't care if he was famous or not. I just knew that I wanted to spend more time with him.
