A Promise to Keep

Katrina Grande gets her heart broken. Again. After that experience, she promised herself that she wouldn't falls in love again and gives up on men. She has a past that barely anyone knows, and she doesn't trust people very easily. But then she runs into the one and only, Zayn Malik. She's not even a fan of One Direction. Katrina doesn't want to break her promise, ever. Besides, why would Zayn even comes near her? She's just a average (actually very crazy) girl. Will she let Zayn Malik in her life and get swept off her feet or keep her promise forver?


10. Movie night comes with surprises

A/N: Ok like I said, I'm going to switched the parts between Zayn's and Katrina's point of views, just to know what both of them are thinking and get to know more about their lifestyles. I never watched the movie Paranormal Activity 4 so I'm just going to make stuff up, so please correct me and tell me if you want me to change it so it can actually be like the movie. Lastly, I hope this doesn't disappoint you, but I only update on Saturdays and Sundays, Eastern Time to be specific. So enjoy.

Zayn's POV

I was amazed. Straight to the point, every time I see Katrina I'm amazed and wondered if she's always like she is. She had a rebellious streak, and doesn't give a damn what people think of her. And I especially loved it when she didn't scream or simply care that I was 1/5 of the world's biggest boyband. She treated me like a normal guy, and it's been awhile since a stranger treated me that way.

Katrina doesn't care how she looks either. I loved it when girls don't care how they look and embraced themselves. I can see that she wears things for comfort, like sweatpants and doesn't wear makeup. She's definitely not the girly type. Well I hope not. She doesn't seem like the type to wear dresses, skirts, heels, or any of that stuff. Only things for comfort. She's 100% a natural girl.

But I see she holds pain inside her. Something must've hurt her, and scarred her. I wanted to know why, and I wanted to help her, even though I knew her for only a few days.

"Umm, I have to use the bathroom. Where is it?" Riley asked sheepishly, interrupting my thoughts.

"Upstairs and the first door on the right," I replied and glanced at Katrina. She had a small smirk on her face. I was about to ask her why, but Niall interrupted.

"You guys are going to Uni right? What's the career choice?" he asked. I already guessed the personalities for each girl. Riley seemed like the joking, loud, and pranking type, but she's still a caring and loving person. Jaz was quiet, but once you get to know her, she could probably be as fun and Riley. Now Katrina..... I couldn't really read her personality. She shuts herself out and doesn't let people in. But I'm just guessing that she's fun and but serious and.....well it seems to early to guess her personality.

I was curious about the question Niall asked, so I looked at Katrina for an answer. She hesitated for a split second before she answered. "Well, I want to be a veterinarian, and Riley wants to be an artist."

I was a bit surprised. I didn't really expect that Katrina wanted to be a vet or that Riley wanted to be an artist. I wanted to ask her more about it, but it seemed like she didn't want to talk about it much more.

She looked at me before her gaze wandered to Jaz. "I want to be an author," Jaz answered with a hint of pride in her voice.

"That's amazing! And I'm not saying that just to be nice you know," Harry said and I nodded in agreement. "Thanks," Jaz said and looked a bit expectant. Why? Probably for the movie?

I glanced at Katrina. Her expression was guarded, as if she was shutting people out. Why was she shutting us out? The high cheekbones, perfect nose, light brown skin, pursed lips, and deep dark brown eyes was making her face unreadable and guarded.

I wanted to know why. I sighed and tried to focus on the film, but I couldn't. It was at the part where the girl walks into the room and the door shuts behind her. Then all of a sudden, when the creepy ghost girl comes out, something jumps in front of the TV.

Or should I say someone. Louis screamed, "It's the creepy ghost girl! I'm too young to die!" Everybody screamed, including me. Though I believe it's manly shout. Jaz and Katrina didn't scream. They only let out small sqeals. In fact they look like they were about to laugh.

The- I don't even know what to call it- was wearing rags. Its hair was poofed up and was all over the place. It had a pale face and what seemed like blood all over the bottom half of its face. Its teeth were bared into something that resembled a grin. And the eyes were wide open and the eyes were rolled into the back of its head.

Then the eyes went back to normal and I recognized Riley. I stopped screaming- ahem manly shouting- and finally notice I was close to Katrina. I was practically on her lap and was trembling slightly. Way to show manliness, Malik.

She couldn't hold it in longer so she started laughing like a maniac. I just stared at her. The lads seemed like they were in shock. Riley and Jaz were laughing too, but Riley stopped. "Guys, it's just me. You in shock or what?"

A couple minutes passed with silence and gaping and staring. Louis was the first one to recover.

"You, my friend, are the prank master," he said and looked at her with respect. Riley just gave him a proud smile.

"Wow. I think I almost pissed myself," Niall stated solemnly, as if he was in a daze.

"Never do that again!" Harry spat out. He was on Liam's lap. "Ever," Liam added in.

I didn't know what to say, so I started laughing. Soon everybody else was laughing along with me. I was happy to see Katrina with a care free look on her face. I was even more happy when Riley went back upstairs to clean herself up and then came back down looking like her regular except the fact that her hair was still poofed up and all over the place.

She said she liked the way it looked, but I thought of it as a memory of our scary, shit-in-the-pants experience. I will never look at her the same way again and I'll never underestimate her. Especially when she eats. She probably eats more than Niall, if that was possible.

And I was beyond ecstacy when we decided to change the movie. But that was after Riley explained how she got her scary look.

"It was easy. I got most of the stuff here. I used the gel and hairspray in the bathroom to make my hair poofy like a poodle and there was some clothes that weren't used for awhile in a bag so I just made them look like rags. But I had to sneak into the kitchen and get the fake blood, AKA ketchup and smear it on my face. And voila, a monster demon," she said and looked proud of her work.

"She always pulls pranks. So you guys aren't her only victims, trust me. She could've done more mental damage. This was probably her easiest prank ever," Katrina said seriously and winced as if she remembered some of the pranks Riley pulled on her.

"Never underestimate her. When you think you're alright and safe, you better think again," Jaz added solemnly.

"Alrighty then. Let's change the movie. You people are scared enough. I'm pretty sure most of you will have nightmares. Let's watch.....hmmmm.... do you have Ted?" Riley excitedly asked.

"Yes. I'll go put it on," Liam mumbled and got up and put on the other movie. Clearly he was still shaken up about Riley's prank. It's more than likely that he wouldn't sleep and would stay on the couch tonight.

Everybody was now joking around with each other, fogetting about Riley's present, atleast for the moment. I turned to Katrina who was smiling at something Louis said. I wondered what I could talk to her about.

"What part of the States are you from?" I asked, glad that I found something I could ask her. I loved being in America, but I would always feel homesick. She looked at me questionly for a second before she answered, "Florida. I loved it there, even though I was born in New York. It was always sunny in Florida."

"Then why did you move to England? It's cloudy and rainy here," I asked with burning curiosity. I want to know as much as I can about her so I can try to figure out what had hurt her in the past. What was the secret that she was guarding?

"Well.... Me, Riley, and Jaz were all best friends since elementary school, more like sisters. And we went to the same college for only a year. So right now we're all 19. And then we got this amazing offer to start college here and we just couldn't refuse. I always wanted to come here once in my life. And look now, turns out I'm here for college," she answered carefully, choosing her words and her expression guarded.

I was about to ask her more questions, like why she wanted to come here and visit and why she wanted to be a vet. But like always, I have to have someone interrupt us before I could investigate more.

"Shut up! I wanna see the movie! If anyone talks, I'll throw a skittle at your forehead. And trust me, I have good aim," Jaz threatened us. It's hard to believe the small girl would hurt us. But I took her seriously. Riley and Katrina wouldn't choose a weak person as their besty. If Riley was scary and intimidating when she only pranks us, the Jaz must be pretty damn serious when she threatens a person.

We all shutted up and watched the film, while munching on the delicacies Niall shared. I was surprised when Niall shared his food with us, he never shared his food. Hell, he would get pissed when someone stole his chips. Harry is a perfect example of what happened. Niall must've wanted to impress someone special...... I wonder who.

So many questions, but almost no answers.
