Forgot To Laugh

Nikki has always loved One Direction but her hopes of them loving her back are clearly very slim. That is until one day, she runs into none other than Zayn Malik. She takes a crazy journey with many twist and turns. You up for the ride? -This is my first story. Please no hate! xx-


2. Now What?

He kept staring at me and smiling. I could feel my cheeks burning up.

"So.." I started off but began trailing off because I had no idea where I was going with it.

"You hungry?" he asked me. I looked up and smiled.

"Starved." I replied. I'm sure he then imagined us skipping off into the sunset and then grabbing something to eat along the way, but this is reality.

"But.. I have to get to work." I quickly added, mentally kicking myself in the shins as soon as the words came out of my mouth.

Zayn's POV

As soon as she said she had to get to work, I could feel my smile instantly drop. I don't know why though, there was just something about her that made me want to get to  know her. Maybe it was the fact that she didn't scream when I first started talking to her. She was gorgeous as well, with her hair pulled back, it showed her beautiful face. Her eyes seemed very big, staring at me and then I realized I hadn't responded.

"Are you okay?" she asked. I smiled. I couldn't help but think that she actually cared about me even though she didn't know me. That she felt the same way, and right now, I was feeling like a helpless romantic. 

"Yeah. I'm fine." I replied. "That stinks though." That stinks? Really? That's all you could think of! I started mentally face palming. 

"I know, it sucks butt." she replied, giggling. She thought it was cute. I sigh. Good, I can play off cute.

"Well, maybe I could get your number and we could get something to eat a little later." I said. I hope I didn't seem too straight forward. I never acted this way around girls. But she smiled. I instantly loved her smile. Maybe it was her lips framing it..

"I'd like that." YES! I knew my face was probably beaming but I didn't care. I exchanged numbers with her and kissed her cheek.

"Until then." I finally said. I felt like some super hero using one of my cheesy super hero pick up lines..

Nikki's POV

I felt my cheeks starting to burn up again so I just smiled and looked away. I ran back upstairs. Screw Tom. He could find someone else to work the stupid coffee machine. I had a date to get ready for, or more of an amazing experience I had to share with my best friend. I unlocked the door and ran inside, over to Gracie's bed and jumped on top of her. She groaned and groggily opened her eyes.

"WHAT" she exclaimed then lowered her voice, "is your problem?" I wagged my finger at her and gave her a disapproving look.

"Not my problem. Yours." I corrected her.

Gracie's POV

I honestly had no idea what she was talking about so I gave her a confused look.

"What are you talking about?" I asked and she started doing her awkward happy dance. Then she settled down and sat on the bed. She smoothed out the sheets and place her hands in her lap, elegantly. Then she looked at me again. I raised my eyebrow, expectantly and a grin grew across her face. Full-on ear-to-ear. I was fully awake now.

"Well," she paused in certain areas for "dramatic effect". I just rolled my eyes. "While you're sitting around here all day, watching TV and eating, like the loner you are," she said giggling and poked my stomach. I just glared at her. "I am going on a date with, drum roll please!" I started to get impatient. I sooo wasn't in the mood. "Nope." I say, plain and simple. "Grumpers." she mumbled under her breath. "Zayn Malik." she said getting up and walking towards the door, like it was no big deal.

"Wait, wait, wait. WHAT?" I asked her. Clearly THIS was the reaction she wanted because she turned back around smiling like a maniac and starting nodding her head up and down. I thought it was going to snap off. We both got up on the bed and started jumping around like maniacs and listening to Take Me Home, well, all the party songs. Whenever "certain" lyrics would come on, I'd start nudging her and she'd just go into a laughing frenzy. When the album ended we lied on the bed breathing heavily. I turned to look at her. 

"Now what?"

-Please tell me what all my lovelies think!! xx-
