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.


24. They Know

I woke up the next morning and my phone was going crazy. My twitter was blown up. I checked to see why, and then I saw it. It was a picture of me and Zayn at the cafe and he was kissing me, the next picture was of us laughing, us smiling at each other, and the last one was of him feeding me a grape. 

Great, now we were all over the internet. I walked out of my room and turned on the telly, of course it was on some gossip show and guess what they were talking about? Zayn Malik's new girlfriend.

"Zayn Malik was spotted yesterday with the guys from One Direction and, it looks like Zayn's new girlfriend. The two were spotted a few weeks ago walking the streets of London, now we are certain that this girl and Zayn are together." they show the pictures of us.

"The only question is, who is this girl that stole One Direction's bad boy's heart?" I turned the telly off and threw the remote across the room. It's not that I didn't want people to know about us, it's just that I didn't want the WHOLE world to know about us. I knew what would happen if a lot of people found out. Abi told me about all the hate she receives from 'fans'. 

I grab my phone and call Zayn.

"Hey!" He says when he picks up.

"Hey, I woke up this morning and, we're all over the news." 

"What? How, no one saw us."

"Apparently someone did because there are a bunch of pictures of us together at the cafe."

"Well, people were going to find out about sooner or later."

"But I was hoping it would be later."

"Why? Are you embarrassed of me or something?" He asks, he sounds hurt.

"No! Zayn I'm not embarrassed of you! I, I just don't want people to hate me because I'm with you. I saw how much hate Abi gets, and I don't want that to happen. I don't think I can handle that."

"Don't worry, they can say whatever they want but we both know what is true. Those people don't know you so they have no right to say anything about you."

"Okay. I guess I'm overreacting."

"It's fine. do you want me to come over?"

"Yeah, my mum is coming home early today. To make sure I'm okay."

"Well, while she's not there I will be to make sure you're okay."

"Zayn, I'm not a little baby. I can take care of myself."

"I don't care if you can take care of yourself. I want to, end of discussion. I will be there in 15."

I laugh, "Okay, Bye."

"Bye." I hung up and sat down on the couch. I still don't know what Zayn sees in me. I'm not pretty, I'm not anything special. I'm an average nobody that for some weird reason, ran into him. My mum wasn't home even though it was Saturday, she works everyday of the week to afford this place.

20 minutes later there's a knock on the door. I walk over and open it.

"You do realize that you don't have to knock."

"I know. But it's polite to knock."

"Oh, because your so polite." I say with a laugh.

"I can be." He says. I close the door and we sit down on the couch.

"Wanna watch the telly?" I ask him.

"Sure." I turn the telly on and because I didn't change the channel I again see the gossip people discussing Zayn Malik and his new girlfriend. They show the picture of us kissing.

I hug Zayn, "No one is going to hate you. They may hate the fact that your with me, but they won't hate you. It's impossible to hate you."

I smile, "I will remember that when we are in a fight."

"Oh, so we are going to have fights?"

"Every couple does!"

"We're not like other couples."

"How so?"

"You're different from every other girl."

"Is that good?"

"In your case, yes." He leans over and kisses me. He pulls away but I put my hands on his neck and pull him back. We kiss for a few more minutes when his phone starts ringing. "Way to kill the mood." He says as he grabs his phone.

"Hello?" He says to the other person.

"What! I totally forgot about it! Ugh, I will be there in 20 minutes!"

He hung up and got up, "I forgot I have to go to the studio today."

"Oh, well I'll text you later." 

"No, come with me yeah?"

"Zayn, I don't want to disrupt everyone."

"Please?" He begs.

"Fine." I give in after a while.

"C'mon let's go."

He drags me by the hand out the door and to his car.
