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.


35. Three words.

The next morning Zayn and I walked out into the kitchen to get breakfast. It was about 9, Niall was already watching the telly. "Hey!" He says as we walk over to the fridge.

"Hi." I say back to him. Zayn opens the fridge and pulls out some milk, he goes to the pantry and grabs so cereal. I get two bowls and spoons and place them on the counter. He kisses my cheek and says, "Thanks babe."

We grab out cereal and walk over to the couch and sit down. Niall was flipping through the channels, and stopped on a gossip show.

"Major fashion failure." The host says, "In other news, it seems Zayn Malik has been snuggling up to his girlfriend, Layla Kenzie, at the water park." I groan as I see pictures of us at the water park fill the screen.

"Is Layla too young for Zayn? And it appears the 16 year old hasn't been going to school! Zayn, it looks like you have picked a bad girl, and is that a little inking I spy on her back? Zayn, it looks like you have your hands full!" 

I stare at the screen in shock, "What?" I say.

"Layla, don't listen to them, they don't know what they are talking about. They don't know you, at all." Zayn say comforting me.

"I can't believe they would say that."

"Let them think what they want, we know they truth."

"Yeah, but now everyone will think that!"

"You shouldn't care what people think about you."

"Oh, because you don't care when they say something bad about you that isn't true?" I yell.

"Lay, calm down." He says stroking my arm. "It's alright." I rest my head on his shoulder.

"Fine." I mumble. I hear my phone ring from Zayn's room and I get up to answer it, It's my mum.

"Hi mum!" I say.

"Hey hun, how'd you sleep?"

"Ha, I didn't, we stayed up all night talking."

"I remember doing that when I was your age." I hear my mum laugh, "I need you to be home by 11 because the Pest guy will be coming to spray for bugs."

"Okay, I'll be home by then."

"Good, make sure you water the plants, yeah?"

"I will, don't worry."

"I guess, bye."


I set my phone down and start to walk back to the buys when I hear Niall and Zayn talking.

"So what did you guys do last night?" I hear Niall ask.

"None of your business." 

"Come on! You can tell me."

"All we did was talk okay!"

"Well, did you tell her you loved her? You keep saying your gonna tell her but you never do. She should know how you feel."

"I just, I think it's too soon to tell her. I mean, what if she doesn't feel the same way and it freaks her out? I never felt like this before, I really love her, but I don't want to risk losing her."

"Fair enough. But listen mate, I don't think you'll lose her if you tell her, even if she doesn't feel the same way."

"Okay." I stand there in the doorway in shock. Zayn loves me? WHAT?!?

I slowly start walking and Zayn turns around and looks at me when he hears my footsteps. I relax myself so he doesn't know that I heard him.

"It was my mum." I say and sit next to him. He puts his arm around me.

"Ah, what'd she say?"

"That she wants me to be home by 11 for the Pest Guy, and to water the plants."

"Oh." I put my head on Zayn's shoulder and intertwined my fingers with his. He smiled at me and I smiled back.

I can't believe he loved me, honestly, I think I love him. I feel so safe with him, I love being with him, I want to spend all day with him everyday. 

I stare into his beautiful brown eyes and wish I could always be with him, always.


"It's 10, I should go." I say getting up from my spot on the couch.

"Aww." Zayn complains.

"Don't worry, I'll call you!" I walk over to his room, grab my clothes from yesterday and go to the bathroom. I slip on the clothes,, wash me face, and fix my hair.

I walk back to Zayn's room and grab my phone, I start to get back up when I feel hands around my waist.

"Layla?" Zayn asks.


"There's something I want to tell you." He starts.

"What is it?"

"I, I love you."
