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.


14. You do like him!

I wake up the next morning to my phone ringing. I look at the caller I.D. and see that it's Kelli.

"Hey!" I say.

"Hey, do you wanna hang out today?" She asks.

"Sure, where?"

"Um, actually I'm going to the studio with the guys and they want you to go."

"Why didn't they call me?" I ask, it sounded like they were avoiding me.

"Because, um. They didn't know if you were still okay with Zayn after yesterday." I had told Kelli what happened and I knew Harry and figured out.

"Zayn told everyone!" I scream.

"No, it was Harry. Zayn didn't do anything." Kelli says really fast.

"I'm going to kill him!"

"So I will take that as a yes to you coming then?" She asks hopefully.

"Yeah, I'm coming. Just give me an hour and I will be at their flat." I say

"Okay! Bye!"

"Bye." I hung up and walk into the shower. In case you're wondering why Kelli never goes to school since she is 16, it is because she is home schooled. She still doesn't want to go to actual school yet.

After I get out of the shower I get dressed and straighten my hair. I put on very minimum make up and grab my purse and phone. I walk out and go to the kitchen, my mum is sitting there.

"Hey, I'm going out today, we have a free day and I'm spending it with the boys and Kelli." I say as I grab a muffin from the counter.

"You and that one boy are still friends after last night?" She asks. I also told her, she my mum so why wouldn't I?

"Yeah, I guess. It will probably be awkward between us now." I say. I sit down next to her and pull out my phone. 

"Well, in my opinion, I think you do like him. Whenever you talk about him you smile." My mum says. What? I like him as a friend, I think.

"Mum, I don't know. I'm just so confused!"

"I think you are afraid of getting hurt, of him breaking your heart. But the only way to be able to get over that fact is to have your heart broken and come back from it and find someone new." my mum says holding my hand.

"I have had my heart broken before." I say quietly. I look up at her and see that she has tears in her eyes.

"I am so sorry that I left you Lay. I thought I was doing what was right, I tried to contact you but your father wouldn't let me talk to you. EH told me you didn't want to talk to me ever again." She says.

"What? He never told me that you wanted to talk to me. He told me that you never regretted leaving and getting away from me. That I was just a disappointment to you." I say looking in to her eyes to see if she was telling the truth.

"Layla, you are not a disappointment! I regretted leaving the moment I stepped out of that house. You are a beautiful and smart girl. And that's how I know you will do whats right with this guy." She says. She hugs me and gets up, "I have to go to work now, but I will be home at 5." I give her a kiss on the check and she leaves. I finish my muffin and head out the door. 


I walk into Niall and Zayn's flat and see everyone standing in the kitchen. "Hey!" I say as I walk up. 

I give everyone a hug, when I get to Zayn he holds me a little longer. I pull back, "Ready?" Liam asks. 

"Yeah!" We walk out and get into Harry's car. It's pretty big, but not big enough for the seven of us. Harry got in the driver's seat, Lou in the passenger seat, Niall, Zayn and Liam sat down in the back and me and Kelli look at each other. there isn't room for us. "You're going to have to sit on someone." Harry says with a laugh. We decide it will be easier if we sit closes to the door, Kelli gets in on the left and sits on Niall's lap, I get in the right side and see that Zayn is sitting there I sigh quietly and sit down on his lap.

The seat belt doesn't fit around the both of us so he puts his arms around my waist. I sit there silently and Zayn whispers in my ear, "I hope this isn't too awkward." I laugh and look at him.

I stare into his beautiful eyes, "No, not that awkward." He smiles. His grip on my waist tightens, and I lean back a little into him. My emotions start spinning, I want to be with him, I just can't trust myself not to fall to deep. I do wan to be with him, I do.
