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?


19. Panda goes crazy

Zayn's POV

That. Was. The. Best. Prank. Ever.

I got to say, the soda explosions were very creative of Louis. Lou would probably be a bit mad I used his idea, but thrilled when he finds out it was successful.

And the way Katrina looked—the soda all over her, her dark brown hair starting to get sticky from the soda. Her clothes were basically soaked through. I bet I didn't look much better than her.

Now we have to go to my place to get a cleaned up and the sad thing about it is that Katrina would have to leave and go with Panda. But I didn't want her to leave. I actually wanted to stay with her. Maybe I can just make up some excuse to help out with Panda...but she would just say that Jaz and Riley can help her.

Gah, what's a good excuse I can use?

I pulled into the driveway of my flat and parked the car. I might have to clean the inside, since there was soda on the seats.

"Thank you so much Zayn for helping me. Especially on such a short notice. And the soda thing, that was very fun. Maybe we should do another prank again sometime," Katrina suggested. She got out the car and ran her fingers through her hair.

"Maybe we should actually have a big prank day for everyone. That would be awesome," I suggested, already into the idea. Louis would go insane if there was a prank day. He has a list of things that he could do.

"I guess I should try and get cleaned up a bit, if that's possible. My clothes are soaked through. And sorry about your car, it probably has soda everywhere too."

"Don't worry about the car. I'll get it cleaned up. And about your clothes—" I paused to think for a second, "Well you can borrow my clothes if you want."

"Are you sure?" She asked uncertainly. She cocked her head sideways a bit, which I thought was cute.

"Yes I'm sure. Let's get inside and hurry. Jaz and Riley must be wondering where you are right now. And I have no idea what Harry is doing with Panda right now."


I picked out some clothes from my dresser to give Katrina while she was standing outside the bathroom door waiting patiently. Finally, I decided to give her some sweats, a white tee, and let her borrow my sneakers that didn't fit me anymore. Hopefully this won't make her feel uncomfortable.

I walked out my room and to where Katrina was standing. I handed her the clothes. She smiled gratefully and said, "Thank you Zayn. You have no idea how much you did for me today. I don't know what would've happened if you weren't around."

"It's no problem Kat. Just get cleaned up and you can just pick up Panda, Jaz, and Riley, and then you can go home and relax. It's not good to be stressed out."

"Says the guy who has a billion fans and went on a U.S. tour," She chirped.

"Touchè," I stated since I didn't have a good comeback. She got me there.

She grinned, showing her pearly white teeth and went inside the bathroom. Looks like I'll have to wait awhile before I can get cleaned up.

I sighed heavily and ran my fingers through my hair. Katrina will to leave soon and I didn't figure out an excuse. I guess she'll have to leave and I won't be able to see her since management has plans for the next couple of weeks and a next world tour coming up with the Take Me Home album.

So to sum this all up, I'll be busy and won't even get to taste the normal life for awhile.


"I'm finished. You can go get cleaned up Zayn," I heard Katrina's voice say softly behind me. I was sitting on the floor in the middle of the living room to avoid getting soda anywhere else.

"Oh okay. Do you remember the way to Harry's place?" I ask, just to be sure. It's a lot of twists and turns just to get to his flat.

Katrina blushed. "Erm, no sorry. I was distracted and didn't remember," she answered sheepishly. She look down at the floor and twisted her foot on the ground. Looks like my shoes weren't that huge after all.

"That's alright. I don't have anything important to do. I can come with you to pick up Panda, then you'll drop me off here." I was happy that I get to spend more time with her, but I tried not to show it. That would make a wrong impression.

"Okay. I'll wait here while you get cleaned up." She walked over and sat on the couch and nonchalantly looked back up at me.

"You can watch TV or do whatever. This shouldn't take long."


After about 10 minutes, I was done. It would've taken me longer if I did my quiff in my hair, but I decided not to. It takes too long and I concluded that it kind of looked better without all of the gel and the quiff.

I walked back into the living room. Katrina was watching some gossip channel. I paused for a minute, listening to what the reporter was saying.

"And hopefully this won't cause too many screams when I say that Zayn was with a mystery girl in his car. Who is this girl? And why is she with Zayn? Stick around to find out more." The commentator stated and made a smile so fake, a monkey would've smiled better.

"Are you ready to go?" I asked Katrina, pretending that I didn't listen to the channel.

She was surprised and jumped at the sound of my voice. "Huh? Oh wait, yeah, let's go."


Katrina pulled her car into Harry's driveway after an intense game of would you rather. It was getting real good, to the point of when we asked each other whether or not we would date this person.

She turned of her car and got out. She waited for me to come out before walking up to the front door. She pressed the doorbell and waited with me beside her.

I heard something knocked over before the door opened. Harry was breathless standing before us and leaning over breathing heavily. Behind him, the flat was a mess with furniture turned over and decorations on the floor.

"What the hell happened?" Katrina exclaimed and placed a hand on Harry's shoulder.

"The—dog....Panda....crazy...energy..." Harry said, saying each word after a gulp of breath. Katrina's eyes were wide open and she pushed Harry aside and went in the flat. I followed her and left Harry to catch his breath by the door.

"Panda?" Katrina called out, her eyes searching for him. I heard the pads of feet stop running. "Panda? Come here boy. Where are you?" Katrina called out again, as sweetly as possible.

Suddenly I heard running and saw Panda running towards Katrina from the hallway. All of a sudden, Katrina was on the floor with Panda on top of her licking her face. She was giggling like crazy, gasping for breath.

"Panda! Get of her!" I yelled sternly. I tried to grab the black and white dog, then he suddenly decided to get me into the licking festival. Soon I was on the ground, trying to get the energy hyped dog of me.

"Panda! Bad dog! Get off him!" Katrina exclaimed and grabbed Panda by the collar and held him in between her legs. She stood up and gripped the collar with two hands.

"Jesus. So this what you were doing with Harry? I see that you aren't that sick anymore," Katrina commented.

I got up from the wooden living room floor and dust myself off. The dog got me good.

"Should I let him go? He seems calm right now," Katrina said, still breathing heavily. Panda was just wagging his tail happily and he seemed to be grinning with his tongue lolling out of his mouth.

I nodded my head, figuring that he can't do much more harm. But as soon as she had loosened her grip and let go, Panda sped off towards the front door. I ran after him, frantically calling his name and hoping that Harry locked the door.

But turns out my luck was just bad because Panda raced out the door and into the front yard.

Oh no. This is bad. This is very very bad.


A/N: Sorry I didn't update last week. I was getting distracted too much and I didn't want to write a crappy chapter. So I figured I would rather skip a week to write a good chappy later than write some crappy dipshit and post it. I don't really know if I wrote too little so hopefully this was long enough.
