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.


7. Zayn <3

"So, do you guys want to hang out with us today?" Liam asks us. He's been staring at Kelli the whole time. "Um sure, we were going to go shopping-" I start to say, "SHOPPING!?!?!" I hear Louis yell. "Oh my gosh Lou, you could have broken my ear drum!" I hear Abi giggle. "So I guess you guys want to come?" I ask. I look over at the rest of the guys, the are all nodding their heads.

"Let me warn you tho, if any fans see us with you guys they will automatically assume your dating one of us." Zayn says. Harry laughs, "Yeah Zayn, wouldn't it be tragic if the world thought you were dating Layla?" I blush, does he really like me? Zayn just glares at Harry while Harry and Niall are laughing like idiots.

**********************************************************************************3 hours later*

We walk up to my building and I turn to the guys, "Thanks so much for today." I say. I had gotten 4 new shirt and a cute skirt. I had also bought Zayn a new shirt since I ruined his. "Well, hopefully we will see you guys another time." Zayn says. "Oh come on! Just ask for her number already!" Niall cries. I stare at Niall, he really is crazy. Zayn looks at me, "So Layla. Can I have your number? He asks. Did he Zayn really just ask me that? I mean he's famous, I don't even really like One Direction and I''m going crazy. "Um-yeah sure." I stutter. He hands me his phone and I put in my number and hand it to him. "Can I have a pic for your caller I.D? " He asks. I hear some of the guys go, 'OHH'. I blush, "Sure." I say. Zayn takes his phone and pulls me close to him and snaps a pic of us. He looks at it and smiles.

"Well, I have to go now. Sorry." I say. "I'll text you later." I Say to Zayn. I say good-bye to all the guys and head up to my flat with Kelli. I look over at her and see she's smiling. She got Liam's number when we were shopping. "He really likes you." I say to her. "I just can't believe it! I mean One Direction!" She says. "I don't really um, I'm not really a fan of their music." I say. She stares at me. "But you're a fan of Zayn!" She squeals. "He totally likes you!" She says. Wow, she really sounds American. Liam commented on her American accent when she first started talking to her, saying that it was really cute that made her blush. We both did a lot of blushing around them today.

My phone buzzes and I pull it out of my pocket and read the text.

Hey Layla, I just wanted to say I had a rlly good time with you 2day and that I really am sorry about bumping into you.  But then I'm kind of not because if I didn't I never would have meet you. ~Zayn

I smile at the text, "Ohhh is that Zayn?" Kelli asks. "Yeah." I say. I reply to him,

It's totally fine. I'm the one who spilled hot coffee all over you! Maybe we could hang out some time. ~Lay

Oh my gosh, did I just ask out Zayn Malik? I was screaming in my head when he replied,

Yeah that would be awesome! How about 2nite? ~Zayn

"Oh, my god!" I hear Kelli squeal. I look up at her, she was reading my texts. "Really Kelli?" I say, trying to sound annoyed, but it comes out like a scream. "You're going on a date with Zayn Malik!" She cries. "It's not official, I haven't said yes and I don't know where we will be going." I say. "But you just said 'will' so you are going to say yes!" She says with a smile. "Yeah, I will." I say.

That's sounds great! Where do you want to go? ~Lay

I bite my bottom lip, I look up and see that we are at my flat, I could actually call it my flat for right now. I unlock the door with the key that my mum gave me and we head in. "So where are you guys going?" Kelli asks me. Right on cue my phone buzzes, I look down and read the text from Zayn,

I will pick you up at your flat @ 7, it will be a surprise! ~Zayn

Ok! ~ Lay

I laugh as I reply, "He won't tell me. But he will be here at seven." I look at the clock, t's 2:43. "You have five hours to get ready!" Kelli screams. We run to my room and I pull open my closet, "What should I wear?" I say, going full out girl mode. We start tearing things out of my closet and searching for the right date outfit. I guess catching up with my mum will have to wait until tomorrow. I smile as I pull out the perfect outfit.

**A/N** I know this book is kinda going really fast, she just got to London and already meet One Direction, sorry! I need some help on what the date should be like and where, if you have any ideas plz leave a comment!!!!
