5. A Lifetime Worth of Pain

~*Two Days Later~*

"Do you have work today?" Kelly asks her. Brooke shakes her head in return, and Kelly suggests they go out today. Brooke agrees, and the two get ready. After showering, getting dressed, and brushing their hair, they step out in the chill air to Kelly's car.

It was only around noon, so the two girls go to a mall near Bradford, and decide to shop a bit.

An hour and a half later, the girls walked into the food court with two Hot Topic bags(Brooke's), one Victoria's Secret bag(Kelly's), three small Bath & Body Works bags(Both Kelly and Brooke), plus a Journey's bag containing new Superman Converse(Brooke's).

After sitting down with their bags and a McDonald's meal, Brooke saw him. Zayn.

Zayn wore a beanie and dark sunglasses, to prevent fans. Please don't see me, please don't see me, please don't- Brooke's thoughts were suddenly inturuppted by Zayn walking over to the two girls."Hey babe." Zayn says with a smile.

"I'll leave you two alone." Kelly smirks, picking up all the bags and going to the car. "Wait, Kelly!" Brooke shouted accross the food court. "Go see a movie or something! Bye!"

Brooke groaned, and Zayn sat accross from her. "Thanks for taking me home last night." Brooke said, arwkwardly attempting to start a conversation. "It's no trouble, love." Zayn said with a sincere smile.

They stared at eachother a moment before saying at in unison, "I'm sorry."

"Wait, why are you sorry?! I'm the one who hurt you." "Yeah but.... Look I'm reall sorry for dumping all that on you yesterday... I was a bit over emotional."

Zayn was confused. "Nothing was wrong with telling me. I wish you had just told me back when you were in Grade Nine. I can't believe I did that to you, just a little girl.. You were only fifteen."

"It's alright Zayn, just.... promise to never hurt me again."

Zayn lowered his sunglasses off his face. He took Brooke's hand and leaned over the table, looking straight into her eyes. "What's your middle name?" He asked quietly. "Ashlynn." Brooke replied, whispering.

"Brooke Ashlynn Woods, I promise, no, I swear, I swear I will never hurt you again. Mentally, and espcially physically. I am so sorry."

A small, single tear dripped down Brooke's blank face. Zayn half smiled, and leaned in closer to wipe it away. Brooke smiles,and watches as Zayn leans back.

Zayn had wanted to kiss Brooke so badly. But sadly enough, he knew the paps were around and also that Brooke didn't want to kiss him, ever. He had hurt her enough for a lifetime worth of pain.
