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.


30. Water Park


Everyone get's out of the van and runs to the front gate.

"I'm paying for you." Zayn tells me. 

 "No you're not!" I say.

 "You haven't let me pay for you once!" Zayn complains.


"I want to pay for you!"  





"Guys stop fighting!" Abi says coming up to us.  

"We are not fighting we are arguing!" Zayn tells her.  

"About what?"   "

Who get's to pay for me." I say.  

"Easy, Zayn pays." Abi says.  

"Ha!" Zayn says.  

"Not fair!" I say and pout.  

"If you let me pay I will buy you an ice cream." He says. I smile at that.  

We walk up to the front gate to buy our tickets.  

The girl there starts freaking out when she see's that t's One Direction.  

"Oh my gosh! I'm a huge fan! You guys are so amazing!" She squeals. I get uncomfortable and hold Zayn's arm. He smiles at me and I giggle.

"Is that your girlfriend Zayn?" the girl asks. He looks at me and I nod my head.  

"Yeah." He tells her.  

"Oh my gosh you guys are so cute together!" She cries.   Eventually we buy our tickets, after she stops fangirling and asking a million questions, like who was Jordan. Wow, Harry has a girlfriend? Her friends will be so devastated. When the next concert? 

  We walk inside and we split up to go to the locker rooms to change. Abi, Jordan, and I walk into the girl's locker room and we find an empty locker and put our stuff inside. We go into a changing stall and put on our suits. I came out first and put away my clothes. Abi and Jordan stepped out  at almost the exact same time. I looked at them and saw they were booth wearing bikinis. it was so unfair, they both were skinnier than me. I looked down at myself and thought I looked fat, another thing that my dad would tell me.

  "Your suit is so cute!" Abi tells me.

  "Thanks, Kelli picked it out."  

"Wow, Liam still isn't over her. I don;t think he ever will be. He really liked her."   

"Yeah. I know I feel so bad for him. I mean she just left without a goodbye and she never told anyone she had a boyfriend."  

"Yeah, but that's life. Life is complicated."

  I grab my sunglasses and we walk out of the locker room and find the guys. I almost stopped walking when saw Zayn, shirtless. My face was turning red and I just kept walking. He put his arm around me and we all went to find chairs.   

We found eight right next to each other so we all sat down. Me and Zayn were on the end. I pulled out my tanning lotion and began to spray it on me. I rubbed it into my skin and got out one of my towels. I spread it across my chair and laid down on it.   

"Water!" Niall cried and him and Louis ran into the water splashing each other.  

"Those guys are crazy!" I say.  

"Yeah, but I love him." Abi says with a smile.   I put my head down and close my eyes. I feel the sun beating down on me.  

"SHH!"I hear some one say, I open my eyes right as Zayn and Harry dump a bucket of water on me.

"I'm going to kill you!" I scream as I chase Zayn around the park. He runs around a slide and I lose him, I can't find him. I'm looking around for him when I feel someone wrap their arms around me and pick me up.  

"Zayn! Put me down!" He runs over to the pool and holds me over it.   "Zayn! No!" I yell, but the cheeky smile on his face tells me he is going to. He lets go of me and I fall into the pool with a big splash. When I surface I see Zayn laying there on the concrete next to the pool watching me.  

"Zayn! I can't believe you did that!" I yell. I run my hand through my hair and try to climb out of the pool. Zayn offers me a hand. He makes this to easy, I pull him into the pool with me. When he surfaces he just stares at me in shock.  

"Payback!" I yell and swim away, too bad for me that Zayn is a faster swimmer and he catches up t me and pulls me under the water. I start kicking around to make him let me go but he won't. Eventually he let's go and I come to the surface.   I go over to the edge of the pool and pull myself out and sit on the side. Zayn swims over to me and pus his arms on my legs.  

"I am so going to get you and Harry!" I tell him.   He gives me a cheeky smile, "We'll see about that." He says. Before he can do anything I get up and run over to my chair and sit down. I glare at Harry but he just laughs. Zayn comes over and sits on his chair.  

"Who's hungry?" Niall asks coming up to us.  

"ME!" I say and get up. I pull out my wallet but Zayn stops me.  

"I'm paying." He says.  

"I'm not letting you pay all day!" I say.  

"Yes you are. I invited you here and I'm going to pay." He says and he grabs my wallet and puts it in my bag. I go down to grab it again but he picks me up and runs over to the food court.  

"Zayn Malik put me down!" I say. He sets me down at a table and laughs at me.  

"You know you're really cute when you're mad?"  

"Keep doing that and soon I'll be adorable!" I shoot back.  

He snickers and walks over to the line. He comes back with two ice creams and hands me one. After we finish Abi comes up to us and tells us that everyone is going to the water slides.   We walk over there with her and get in line. 

Finally we get to the front and I sit on the edge of the slide, I look down and see how far up we are, it's not too bad But any higher and there was no way I'd be going on this. I push off the edge and lay down. My body twists and turns with the slide. Soon I feel my body drops off and it hits the water, I surface and swim over to the steps and stand there and wait for everyone else.

I see Zayn come down and he swims over to me, "Was that fun?" He asked.

"Yeah!" I say.

"We're going on the bigger one next." He says with a smile.

"B-bigger one?" I choke out.

"Yeah, are you scared?" He asks me.

"No, I'm fine." I say and stand up straight. I wasn't going to let my stupid fear of heights over come me. Niall came off the slide, after him Liam, Louis, Abi, Jordan, and Harry.

We get out and walk over to the bigger slide. They get in line and I look up at how tall it is, I bite my lip and take a step back.

Zayn looks at me, "I don't think I can do this." I tell him.

"C'mon! It will be fun!" He says and walks over to me. He grabs my hand and pulls me back n line.

"Zayn, I really don't know if I can go on this one." I say and tighten my grip on his hand.

"You can do it. Don't think about how tall it is, it's barley taller than the other one."

"I had trouble going on the other one!" I say.

"There's nothing to be afraid of. I won't let anything happen to you."

"Fine." I make Zayn go in font of me, I'm the last person in line from our group. Eventually it's Zayn's turn and he goes down the slide, I watch him disappear down and soon see him come out at then end and fall into the water. He comes back up to the surface and looks up at me.

"You can go now." The lady tells me. I sit down on the slide and push off. I close my eyes really tight as I feel myself being jolted this way and that as I go down the slide. There's a turn in the slide and it fees like I'm going to fly off the edge.  I open my eyes and see that I'm not even halfway down, I really start to panic. It feels like I've been on it forever and I can't get off.

I try to sit up but the wind pushes me back, I can now see the end of the slide and I get hopeful. I see Zayn standing there with everyone else smiling. The slide cuts off and I fall into the water. I come back up and stand up.

I walk over to them, "How was it?" Zayn asks.

"Never make me go on that again, ever." I say. I'm shaking at the thought of what just happened. I really felt like I would never get off.

"I'm sorry. I won;t make you do something you don't want to do. But you didn't get hurt did you?"

"No, that's not what I was afraid of." I say as I walk back to my chair and sit down. I was a little mad at Zayn for making me go on the slide. He knew I didn't want to yet he still made me.
