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.


29. The Ride

I woke up the next morning smiling. I remembered my dream, it was beautiful. I couldn't help but wonder who the girl with Liam was and the girl with Niall. Most importantly who was the little girl? She was so pretty, probably only a few months old. She had soft brown hair and beautiful green eyes. I had to admit she looked like me. 

I got out of bed and walked into the kitchen and poured myself a bowl of cereal. I grab my phone and see that I have two text messages. One from Zayn and one from Jordan,

Hey Layla, me and the guys are going to the water park 2day, wanna come? We will be leaving at 12, txt me when u get this. Oh and ask Jordan if she wants to come as well, Harry will get mad if u don't.

Hey Lay, wanna hang out today?

I laughed and responded to Jordan,

Yeah, the guys are going got the water park @ 12 and want us to come. Interested?

Then I reply to Zayn,

I'm in, let me see what Jordan says.

When I finished my cereal I went to my room, it was only 10:30. I got a text from Jordan.

Sure! I will meet you at your place in half a hour. :)

I texted Zayn,

Jordan's coming! We will be there around 11 11:30!

Ok! Can't wait!! :P

I put my phone on it's charger and walked into my closet. I bought a bikini a last week with Kelli, she picked it out. I put it in a bag and also put some tanning lotion I found in the hall closet and a few towels. I put my hair up in a ponytail ad went on my mum's computer. I checked my twitter and email. Nothing interesting.

I heard a knock at the door and I ran to get it, "HEY!" Jordan says and runs inside, again you have to remember that she is crazy.  She jumps up and down on the couch.

"Jordan, did you have sugar today?" I ask sounding like a mother.

She shook her head. 

"Really?" I ask sternly. She stops bouncing and sit down on the couch.

"I had coffee!" She screams and runs into my room, oh god! I follow her and she that she's jumping on my bed now. 

"Jordan! Get down!" I tell her. She keeps jumping.

"IF you don't get down you can't go to the water park and see Harry!" She slowly stops jumping but doesn't get down.

"And you won't get to ride the water slide!"

"WATER SLIDE!?!?!?!?!?" She jumps off the bed and sits in a chair.

"What are you talking about? I was never on your bed or the couch. Girl you are delusional." She says sounding very, American. Which is fine for her because she was born in New York but moved to Brighton when she was 4.

"Wow, come let's go." I tell her. I grab my phone off the charger and get my bag. She picks up her bag from where she dropped it by the door and we go out and get on a bus.



We knock on the door to Zayn and Niall's lat.

"Why do you knock? Just walk in!" Jordan says pushing open the door.

"What if the were changing or something?" I ask.

Jordan giggles, "You would be very happy!" She says as she closes the door. I roll my eyes at her.

Zayn and Harry walk over to us.

"Hey babe!" Zayn says to me and kisses me


He wraps his arms around me and we walk into the kitchen, leaving Jordan and Harry in the hallway.

"I don't trust those two alone!" I tell Zayn. He let's go of me and I walk back over to them to find them lip locked.

"PDA!" I scream and run over to Zayn and hide behind him. Maybe I should mention that I am also crazy! But I only got it from Jordan. Zayn laughs at me and Jordan and Harry walk over to us.

Jordan of course is blushing, "You look like a tomato!" Niall says.

Harry turns to her, "The cutest tomato I've seen." he says. this of course makes her blush even more. 

"C'mon! Let's go to the water park!" Louis says. Abi is standing next to him.

"Calm down babe!" She tells him.

"How can I calm down? We are going to a WATER PARK!" He yells.

"Calm down!" She says to him sternly, he makes a sad face and hides behind his hands.

I laugh at him and grab my things and we all head to the door. We all get into a van parked next to their flat. Liam get's in the driver's seat and Niall in the passenger seat. Zayn and I got in the back, Louis and Abi in front of us, and then in front of them Harry and Jordan. Liam pulls out and starts driving down the street. Zayn wraps his arms around me and pulls me closer to him, since the very back is just one big seat we sit right next to each other. his arms around my waist and my head on his shoulder.

Louis and Abi were poking each other and laughing. They were perfect for each other, Louis was crazy and so was Abi. But she could be very responsible at times, when Louis would get too crazy. Harry and Jordan were laughing at each other and talking. They were so cute together! I could really tell that Harry liked her and that Jordan liked him.

I look up at Zayn and find him staring at me,"What?"

I ask him, "Nothing, I just, I love being with you. I feel like, like every things right when I'm with you."

I smile, "Me too. I love being with you. I feel like I'm protected when I'm with you." 

He pulls me onto his lap and looks at me, "Layla, you are perfect." He leans in and kisses me. I wrap my arms around his neck and he puts one hand on my back and the other on my hair. I smile as we kiss, if just feels right being with him. We sit there for a few minutes kissing until Abi see's us.

"Guys, really? Can that wait until you're alone?" She asks.

I pull away but I can't move far because Zayn wraps his arms tightly around my waist. I turn to Abi, she's smiling at us and Jordan laughs at us.

"What? Like you two weren't doing that in the hallway! " I say to Jordan. She blushes and turns around.

"Hey! Let's keep things PG back there!" Liam says. I laugh at him

"With Jordan here there is no PG." I tell Liam.

I lean my head on Zayn and he strokes my hair, "We're here!" Liam says
