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.


37. The pizza and Drawing

I wake up around 5 o'clock, my mum should be home soon. I check my phone and see that I have a text from Zayn,

Hey, Liam wants you to meet someone.


A girl he met, 

Y does he want me to meet her?

Well, probably cause you were close to Kelli, and he thinks Kelli is perfect for him.

So he likes this girl?

I guess.

Have you meet her?

No, she's coming over 2mrw, u wanna meet her?

Sure, anything to help Liam.

I set my phone down, who could girls be? I hope it's not just a fan that wants to be close to Liam because he's famous. That would really be bad for him, he needs someone in his life, Kelli was perfect for him. But life doesn't work out the way you think it will. I go on twitter and see I have a lot more followers. I decide to post something,

Fake friends are like noddles, they get soft when the water gets hot

I laughed as I posted it, I set my phone down and walked over to the kitchen. I grabbed a frozen pizza from the freezer and threw it in the oven. I went to my room, grabbed a few pieces of paper, pencil, and a few erasers. I sat down at the kitchen table and started to draw. I love to draw, I'm  pretty good at drawing animals and people. I drew the first person that came to my mind, Zayn.

I drew his amazing eyes, his hair, everything about him. I put his personality into it. I made him sitting down on the ground up against a building. When I finished, I looked at it and admired it. I was alarmed when I smelt something burning, THE PIZZA! 

I jumped up and ran over to it, I threw up the oven, grabbed a pot holder, and took the pizza out. It was completely burnt. I set it down in the sink and let the oven air out. Maybe I should mention I'm not the best cook. I once caught a bowl of macaroni and cheese on fire when I was little. I took a pic of the pizza and sent it to Jordan, Zayn, and my mum with the caption, This is what happens when I get hungry, no one is home, and I decide it's a good time to draw :)

I let the pizza cool before I put it in the trash, I opened up a window so the smoke could go out. I picked up my paper and pencils and walked out onto the balcony. There was a small table there, and I drew the scenery. The beautiful flowers on the building across the street, the way the sun hit the pond, all the people rushing from place to place, the cars going by. All the beauty frozen into one moment in time. I drew a couple sitting on a bench holding hands, dogs tied up to poles while their owners ate outside at a cafe.

I sat there drawing for a few minutes when I heard someone yell, "Look! It's Layla!" I was confused where it came from and looked around. I saw a bunch of girls down on the street pointing up to me. Great, now people know where I live. I walked over to the edge to look at them. there were about three girls looking at me, they were smiling and taking pictures. I waved to them and one of them called up to me, "What are you doing?"

I laughed, people wanted to know about my life just because I'm dating Zayn. "I'm just sitting here drawing." I call back.

"You draw!?!" Another girl yells.


"Are you any good?"

"I don't know, I guess. I'm not an artist or anything." I call back. The girls keep taking pictures and the flash starts blinding me, I walk back over to my table to finish my picture. When I'm done with that one I drew a picture of Jordan and me. We are sitting in a park laughing, I always remember this from when we were 12 and we had a picnic at the park. When we were done we ran over to the lake and Jordan pushed me in, she jumped in after me and we swam around for a while. We always had fun when we were together, listening to music, acting crazy. Just being us. I grabbed all my stuff and headed in side, the girls were still standing there taking pictures, it kind of bothered me that I couldn't sit outside my house without those girls taking pictures, I always hated having my picture taken.

I checked my phone and saw I had a text from Jordan and Zayn,

Nothing has changed with you has it Lay?

Haha, nice Lay, what did u draw?

I replied to Jordan's first,

Yeah! Still the same Layla!

I drew you, the view outside my house, and me and Jordan. A bunch of girls were screaming to me and taking pictures of me. Rlly weird!

Zayn replied almost instantly,

Nice, I didn't know you could draw! They no where u live? That's a little creepy, I guess Directioners know their stuff, some say they are better than the FBI!

Haha, yeah if they found out where I live! Let's just hope they don't find out about my dad! Oh, did you see Harry's phone call with that interviewer person?

No, wht did he say?

He said 'Yeah Zayn rlly love Layla.' the girl was like 'Love?' He changed the subject real quick. HE talked about him and Jordan and a little bit about the album.

Haha, that's Harry. Cant keep his mouth shut. Nothing I have to hurt him for?

No! Dont hurt him! Thats not nice!!

I would hurt him if he said anything he wasnt supposed to!

No! Jordan would kill me then!

She wouldnt do tht!

Wanna bet?

She rlly would?

Shes crazy, youll never know what she will do! calm and quiet one second crazy and destructive the next!

Haha, well I have to go, Niall's hungry. Do NOT cook anything! Wait for ur mum!

Haha! Very funny Zayn! 

:) I try!

yeah! Bye!


I laughed, he still doesn't know much about Jordan. She would go crazy if Zayn hurt Harry. I know Zayn was joking about Harry, but the way he talks about my dad makes me really wonder.
