Hey Bad Boy, You're A Tad Overrated

Violet Bronze, Vod, is One Direction’s new stylist and she hates how full of himself Zayn Malik is. Yes, he has smoldering good looks and a moody, mysterious attitude, but Vod is not so easily impressed. Or so she thought. When Zayn begins to send her mixed signals, one minute he acts as if he wants her, the next he ignores her, she doesn’t know what to think or what to do. But there’s one thing she’s dying to tell him, ‘Hey bad boy, you’re a tad overrated!’

14. 14. But Baby Don't Cry

‘Can I come in?’ Zayn asked with the warmest smile and even though my heart melted, I maintained the ice cold look on my face.

‘Does your girlfriend know that you’re here?’ I asked, folding my arms.

He was taken aback. ‘Don’t do this, doll. Please,’ he said, agitated.

‘Don’t do what?’ I asked with no emotion in my voice. ‘I only asked a question,’ I said, shrugging.

‘Look,’ Zayn began, moving closer but I stepped back. ‘I know I’ve screwed up but I truly care about you, Vod. Madly. Deeply,’ he said and grinned a little because of his cliché reference to the song.

‘Go away, Zayn,’ I told him. I’m not worth of your time, I thought. I made to close the door in his face but he didn’t let me. ‘Zayn, please,’ I cried. ‘You have to leave now.’

He looked at me with a puzzled look on his face before he asked in sudden realization, ‘Did he tell you to do this?’ I didn’t reply and my phone buzzed. It was a text, from Hunter. I read it.

Hunter..: That’s my good girl. Break his heart and send him away

I wanted to cry. Why was Hunter doing this to me?

Zayn grabbed my phone and read the text before I could react. ‘Is this guy stalking you now?’ he asked in disbelief. He looked so angry.

‘Of course not!’ I objected, impulsively defending Hunter. Honestly, what was wrong with me!?

Zayn stared at me for a moment, thinking, before he walked into the flat, closed the door and locked.

‘What do you think you’re doing?’ I complained but in reality, I was glad that he was here with me.

Zayn grabbed my face and looked into my eyes. ‘Saving you,’ he said, serious. I touched his hands and got lost in his eyes for a moment but then there were three violent knocks on the door and I gasped, afraid. Zayn quickly put his arms around me, pulling me against him. Maybe he thought that he could keep me safe that way. I wish he could. I nestled into his chest, listening to his heartbeat.

‘Vod, open the door, love. I know he’s in there with you,’ Hunter yelled from outside and when I didn’t reply, he punched the door again. It shook under his fist. He let out a dark laugh before he said hoarsely, ‘You think it’s over between us, baby, but it’s not. It’s only just begun. And I think you know that.’

Then, there was silence and I began sobbing like a little girl. Zayn put his hands on either side of my face and lifted my head up. He wiped my tears away with his thumbs. ‘Baby, don’t cry,’ he said, kissing my hair. ‘He’s gone and I’m here with you now. I’ll keep you safe. I promise.’

Hunter didn’t go away like they thought he had. He was still there, outside Vod’s door. He sat down on the carpet, lit up a cigarette and listened through the door to the empty promises Zayn made to her. That douchebag only wanted to do dirty things with her and then ran back to his girlfriend. He only wanted to toy with her and Hunter couldn’t let that happen because Vod belonged to him.

Hunter leaned his back against the door, took a long drag from his cigarette and blew the smoke out, remembering the first time he had seen Vod. She was one of the most beautiful girls in school but one of the most innocent ones too. He remembered how he had wanted to change that, how badly he had wanted to take her innocence away. And he did. It wasn't long before he had swept her off her feet and before she was his. But Hunter was short tempered and when he had often turned abusive, Vod had been his victim. He had hit her a few times and some of those times, he had done it for absolutely no reason at all. When Vod finally gathered the guts to leave him a year ago, he let her go, because he knew that once you destroy something, it’s yours forever. And he had destroyed her. And she was his. Forever.

‘If he dares to touch even a hair on your head,’ Hunter heard Zayn say, ‘I’ll send him straight to jail.’

Hunter chuckled, shaking his head, because not even all of this dandy’s bodyguards put together could keep him away from Vod.

‘You don’t know him,’ Vod replied and Hunter grinned. She knew him only too well and he knew her like the back of his hand, too.

‘You can have her for the night, douche,’ Hunter whispered to himself. ‘But in the long run, she is mine.’ Then, he got up and walked away.

‘I’ll tell you a story and you’ll understand why I can never be safe when it comes to Hunter,’ I said. Zayn nodded and I took his hand, leading him to the sofa. We sat, facing each other, and I began my story, ‘I was 15 when I first saw him and he was 17. He had caught my eye the minute he had walked through the school doors and when he showed interest in me, I was so over the moon that I didn’t bother wondering why. Soon, I figured it out and the reason was simple. He’s a bad guy.’ I paused, looked at my feet and smiled, remembering that first day. Then, timidly, I lifted my eyes up to Zayn and said, ‘I guess I’m a sucker for bad boys.’

Zayn put his hand at the back of my head and brought my face closer to his. ‘I’m not a bad boy, doll. And I’ll never hurt you like that jerkface has.’

Hunter hadn’t hurt me. He had damaged me. Irrevocably. I studied Zayn’s face for a moment before I told him, ‘If you stay tonight, he’ll hurt you, too.’

Zayn laughed. ‘I’d like to see him try,’ he said, half smiling. Then, he pulled me into a bear hug and we lay down on the sofa. ‘I’ll keep you safe. I promise,’ he said again, breathing into my hair, and for that tiny moment in time, I thought that maybe our story could have a happy ending.

Hunter is kind of inspired by a guy I used to know but let's just say that in the story he looks something like this: http://weheartit.com/entry/46057979/via/IshiJess
