You're Mine

*Not Famous*
Zoe and her cousin Niall have always been close, as close as they can be with Niall living all the way Ireland. When an unexpeected event brings Zoe to Ireland to stay with Niall, no one could have ever predicted what could've happened. Not only will Zoe fall for one of Niall's friends, she will be ripped away from everything she's ever known.


11. West Scotlandish Striped Cat-fish Hunter Cat's

"I can't find my keys!" Harry shouts, tossing the items in his pockets onto to the top of his car. 

Louis sighs dramatically and leans against the hood, impatiently drumming his fingers. Liam and Niall seem to be in a deep conversation about which Nandos has the best food, and I stand near them. I don't try to get involved in the conversation, instead I catch myself stealing glimpses of Zayn. He's standing a good twenty feet away from the rest of us, puffing away on a cigarette. 

I never thought I'd say this, but smoking only seems to make him more attractive, if that's even possible. The wind tussles his hair and pushes the smoke coming out of his plump lips toward the building. 

He turns toward me and smiles, tossing his smoke to the ground and putting it out with his boot. My heart picks up again as he makes his way toward me, hands dug deep in his pockets. 

"Hey, love. Try not to look so head over heels for him. Show a little restraint."

Lou walks the other way and shots me a wink, proud of his whispered advice. Maybe he's right, I probably look a little pathetic melting ever time he even so much as glances my way.

I straighten my spine and pull a little confidence out of my, letting it show on my face as I whip out my phone. Maybe if I look like I'm doing something, he'll know I wasn't staring at him. I pull it to my face and pretend to be on the phone just as he approaches. 

"Oh, hey! Long time, no talk! It's good to hear from you again, Tyler!"

Tyler? Why did I have to say my little brother's best friend's name? Out of all names in the world, I chose his. Ugh.

Zayn cocks an eyebrow, smirk playing on his lips as he leans against the car. I hold up my finger and give him a sweet smile, going with the pretend phonecall.

"Uh-huh. Oh, really? Oh! I's so sorry! Yeah, it's awful. Mhm. Yeah. Yup. Ok. It was good talking to you again! I'll talk to you soon, Ty! Bye!"

I shove the phone in my pocket and let out a sigh, turning toward Zayn, who's still smiling.

"Everything ok? Sounded like a rough conversation."

I force down the butterflies in my stomach at hearing his voice and make myself think even though my head is spinning. Think, Zo! What happened to Tyler?

"Uh.. his uhm.. pet cat died" I choke out. 

His brows come together as he stands up, taking a step toward me. We're only about a foot apart and I can nearly feel his body heat. My heart goes crazy being this close to him. If it beats any faster I think it might explode!

"That's a shame. What kind of cat was it?"

I watch the movements of his lips as he talks, not absorbing anything he says. His deep voice fills my head, breath running heavily over my skin. It takes all I have in me not to fall to my knees. 


I snap out of my haze and glance up to meet his soft eyes, confused and playful. 

"Yeah? Uhm, what? Sorry.."

He chuckles and I take a step to steady myself. What is going on with you Zoe? This has never happened to you before with a guy! You have to control yourself! Be strong!

"I asked what kind of cat it was?"

I feel my eyes go wide, racking my brain for any type of cat breeds at all. I come up with a blank. I honestly hate cats. They aren't fun, and are mean, and claw you. That's why I made Tyler's cat die off. Not his doggy. 

"It's a.. uh.. west.. scotlandish.. uhm-" 

I glance around desperately trying to find anything that can  help me. All I see are car colors, planes, and people! Think, Zoe! Think!

"West scotlandish striped," Sorry, Lou! "cat-fish hunter cat.."

I trail off and watch Zayn's reaction. The corners of his mouth come up, revealing his more than perfect smile, as he nods.

"A west scotlandish striped cat-fish hunter cat, huh? I heard those are pretty rare."

He winks at me and turns to walk away, but abruptly turns back around. He leans in incredibly close, lips nearly on my cheek, as his whispers words of advice. 

"By the way, if your'e going to fake a mobile call, try turning your text ringer off next time, love."

He chuckles as he walks toward Louis and Harry, whose finally located his keys. I feel my face turn pink as I try to take in his smokey breath, absorbing it all. His musky smell, body heat, all of it. My minds past foggy, still trying to comprehend him being so close to me. I grab the car behind me in support as I finally collapse against it, letting myself breathe a sigh of relief.

My heart still beats out of control as Liam strolls over. Taking in my state, leaning against a car, gasping for breath, he asks if I'm ok.

"I, uh. Yeah, I think so.."

He nods, confused and tells me it's time to leave. He starts to walk away, but I tell him to stay for a minuet.With a confused look, he takes a few steps toward me, not verbally questioning me.

"Uhm, can you help me to the car? I feel a bit dizzy."

He laughs a bit and graciously holds out his arm. Gladly I take it, and grab on to it for dear life, as if his arm is what's separating me from life or death.

"Ouch, easy there babe. I'm not made out of steel."

I release my grip and apologize as I slide into the car, still reeling from my little chat with Zayn. I don't look to see whose next to me, instead just lean my head back against the seat and close my eyes, letting myself live in the ecstasy for a little while longer. 

"Hey, you alright? You look a bit pale.."

I groan in response to Niall's question. What is the matter with me? I need to get a grip. Zayn probably has  a ton of girls dying to get with him. He'll have no interest in me. There's no point in crushing over him, Zoe. Get it out of your head right now. 

The car starts and I feel us drive away from the air port, back toward my old home.
