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.


36. My response.

I stared at Zayn, I heard him talking about it with Niall but I didn't think he would tell me. 

"You don't have to say anything." Zayn says and lets, go of me.

"I just, since I saw you I knew it. I want to be with you, it may seem too soon but I do. You don't have to say it back, I just thought you should know becau-" That's all he could say. I didn't want him rambling on and on so I leaned in and kissed him.

I pulled back and looked at him, "Will you shut up now and let me talk?"

He nodded his head.

"I love you too." I say. He smiles at me.


"Yeah, really." He hugs me and I rest my head on his shoulder. We stand there for a few minutes hugging and he finally he says something.

"Shouldn't you get going? Don't you have to be home for the Pest Guy?"

"Oh yeah, well bye." I say and give him a kiss on the cheek.

"Bye." I walk out of the room and feel Zayn follow me. I say goodbye to Niall and open the front door. I turn around and see Zayn standing there.

"I really do love you." He whispers.

I smile at him, "I know, and I really love you." I walk down the steps and head to the bus.


I got home and ran to my room, I fell on my bed and screamed into my pillow. I told Zayn that I loved him! He told me that he loved me! OH MY GOSH!! I sat there screaming into my pillow for a while, when I heard a knock at the door. I ran over to answer it and it was the Pest Guy. I let him in and he brought some of his equitment with him. I didn't know what it was and I didn't really care. I sat down on the couch and turned the telly on.

Of course it was that stupid gossip show. they were talking about some girl's dress that she wore to a party and a bunch of crap. The host said, "After the break you will hear our conversation with One direction's Harry Styles! We talked to him about his new girlfriend and Zayn's!" I groaned.

I guess I wanted to hear it, make sure Harry didn't say anything stupid that I would have to kill him for. I walked to the kitchen and grabbed a bottle of water and sat back down. The commercials just ended and the show started again.

"We talked to One Direction's Harry Styles this morning, and he told us about his new girlfriend and Zayn's!" The play the tape. 

"So Harry, what can you tell us about Zayn's rumored romance with Layla Kenzie?" The person on the phone asked.

Harry laughs, "Oh, it's not a rumor, it's real. Zayn really loves her.She's really good friends with all of us."

"Wait, did you say Zayn loves her?"

"Oh, um...... so do you have any more questions?" Harry awkwardly changes the subject.

"Okay, well there is also a rumor going around that you have a new girlfriend. What can you tell us about that?"

"Well, I do have a girlfriend. She is very sweet and caring. I actually meet her because of Layla, she is good friends with Layla."

"That's nice! What's her name?"

"Jordan. She's the most prettiest, sweetest girl you will ever meet."

"Sounds like you are head over heels for her."

"I guess you could say that."

The person laughs, "Well, sorry to cut this short but that's all the time we have."

"No, problem."


"Bye." It goes back to the host in the studio.

"So, there you have it, now Zayn and Harry are also taken!" They show a picture of me and Zayn and a picture of Harry and Jordan, you can't see Jordan's face though. 

The Pest Guy walks up to me and looks at the screen, then back at me. "I'm sorry, but is that you?" He asks pointing to the screen.

"Yeah, it is." I say. He laughs.

"Wow. Well  I'll leave the bill on the table." He places a piece of paper down on and walks to the door.

"Bye." He says.

"Bye." He closes the door and I get up and lock it.

God, I really hated being all over the gossip shows. I don't like them saying things about me that aren't true! They don't know me and they have no right to say anything! I was so tired I really couldn't be that mad right now. I laid down on the couch and closed my eyes and soon fell asleep.
