That Alabama Girl

Brooke Woods ran away from her Alabamian family at the age of only fifteen, moving to Bradford, England. She hadn't had friends,a love life, or hapiness for years. At school, the one and only Zayn Malik leads her on, only to bully her and break her heart; Brooke letting go of all trust she'd ever had for anyone. But when Zayn and Brooke meet again, will he just lead her on again? Secrets are revealed, tears are shed, relationships are built up. But will this Alabama girl ever trust him again?


12. Insecure

The two teenagers walked, hand-in-hand, to Zayn's home. The two sneaked inside through the back door in the kitchen, but somebody else was already there. "Hey mum," Zayn said, scratching the back of his neck with his free hand.

"Zayn Jawaad Malik, you had me worried sick! You said you'd be back soon, but no. Instead you come back at one A.M. with a slut to have sex with!"

"Mother!" Zayn whisper yelled, looking at Brooke, who was staring at the ground, holding back her tears. "Maybe this wasn't a good idea," Brooke muttered.

"With your sisters in the house, too! You should be ashamed, Zayn!" Zayn's mother hollered.

"Mum! She's not a slut and I'm not going to have sex with her! Please, will you listen?" Zayn yelled back. He turned to Brooke. "Why don't you go up to my room, okay babe? Upstairs, third door on the left."

Brooke nodded and slowly dragged herself up to Zayn's room, leaving him with his mother.

"Mum, that was my friend Brooke. We went to highschool together, and she needed a place to stay, because-"

"Why? Did her druggie boyfriend kick her out?" His mother always jumped to conclusuions. It was only because she wanted to protect her son.

"No, mum. Her roomate got in a fight with her. You see, her roomate hates me, and I've spent the day with Brooke watching films, and when she got home and saw us together, she went mad. Brooke was even angrier, and decided to move out. Please let her stay for a while mum! She wanted to rent a hotel room, but I said-"

"Is that the girl you asked out and she said no?" she asked. "What? Mum, no-" She interuppted again. "Safaa told me."

Zayn muttered a 'goodnight', and went to his room, only to find Brooke awkwardly sitting on his bed. "Hey," Zayn whispered, as not to wake his sisters. "Hi," Brooke whispered back. "I didn't bring any clothes with me.." Zayn smiled. "You can just borrow one of my shirts, I'm sure it'll be like a nightgown on you."

Brooke gave him a weak smile. He handed her an old Bob Marely shirt, and told her he was going to the bathroom, and she could get dressed while he was gone.

Brooke changed, but felt really insecure with only her undergarments and a large t-shirt on. She played on her phone before Zayn came in, taking it from her and lifting her up onto his bed. "I'm going to go sleep on the couch; do you need anything?"

"Yes," she smirked. "It was a retorical question, but what is it?" Zayn chuckled. Brooke giggle before responding, "I need you to cuddle with me!" Zayn laughed, but climbed in bed beside her, wrapping his arms around her waist. Brooke smiled, feeling all her insecurities slip away.

He hummed Little Things to her, lulling Brooke to sleep.
