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?

Katrina's POV

I stood off to the side of the car to call Jaz and Riley. I decided to call Jaz first, but I'm going to explain the whole Panda thing later. It would be better to explain in person.

"Hello?" Jaz asked.

"Hey. Umm this is a loooonnngg story, but right now I'm just asking if you and Riley can wait at the mall an extra hour after your shifts because... Well like I said it's a long story so can you guys just wait one hour extra?" I asked, straight to the point.

"Uh, sure. I'll tell Riley too. But you better explain what's going on later," Jaz threatened over the phone. She must be irritated with something.

"Yeah, of course. See you later alligator," I said and ended the call. Something pissed her off, and she doesn't get pissed off easily. I sighed and joined Zayn's side. We walked to the store and I took the list the vet gave us out of my pocket.

"Here's the list. We need to find one of these brands of dog on this list." I read the names of the food, five in all. This should be easy. How hard can it be to find a bag of dog food?

"Okay. The puppy food aisle is over there. Shall we?" The dark haired boy asked, his honey brown eyes shining with humor. He bowed slightly and guided me with his arm out. I laughed lightly and walked down to the aisle.

"I think we should get Beneful. It has a lot of nutrition so it can have Panda build back up fast," I suggested and heisted up the big bag of dog food over my shoulder.

"Hold on, lemme get it." Zayn reached over and took the bag over his shoulder. Such a gentleman. All of a sudden I remembered how he was reassuring me in the car and how he easily calmed me from throwing something out the window. I wasn't making the movement to throw something yet, but I was about to and Zayn probably sensed it.

"Thanks. Maybe we should've got a cart. Wait here, I'll go get one."

I walked back to the front of the store and grabbed a cart. This might take awhile to reach Walmart.


"That will be $133.67 ma'am," The cashier said and looked at me expectantly.

On the inside, I groaned like I had the stomach flu. There goes my chances of ever getting a new pair of Nikes. I swiped my credit card and signed my name.

I sighed, thinking of all the bills I'll have to pay. Hopefully none of this spending will lead to me asking my parents for money. I can see their gleeful faces laughing at me. They would probably say 'I told you so'.

I shook my head in disgust. Don't think about it. I have Jaz and Riley, I won't ever have to beg those people for anything.

"You alright Kat? I can pay. It won't be a problem," Zayn said and looked at me a bit worried. I gave him a reassuring smile and shook my head gently. I didn't want to feel like I owed him all the time.

"It's alright." I loaded the bags full of dog supplies onto the cart and started to push it, but Zayn put his hand on top of mines.

"Let me do it."

I let go of the cart and started to walk by Zayn to the car, my mind wandering. I started to think of the things I'll need to get at Walmart. I forgot to buy soda, and maybe the milk would last...


My head snapped up in the direction of Zayn's voice. He grabbed my arm and pulled me towards him. The other car drove by in a flash.

"A car was about to hit you. Are you alright?" Zayn asked concerned and full of worry, maybe even angry.

"I'm fine. I'm sorry, I wasn't focusing on anything. Sorry," I muttered, embarrassed.

"It's not your fault. C'mon, help me put these bags in the trunk."


Zayn had to wear some sunglasses and a beanie into Walmart so he wouldn't get noticed. He acted natural and zipped up his hoodie. I laughed a little, noticing that he was standing out even more. I leaned over to him and whispered, "Lose the glasses. Some people are staring."

He let out a grin and took off the glasses. "Looks like I was born to stand out at all times," he said and tucked some of his hair into the beanie. I snorted lightly and smiled.

It was just so easy to smile when I was with Zayn. The way his hair was all ruffled up, the way his eyes shined when he smiled, how his lips were so pink when they tilted up into a smile. I shook my head to get out of my trance. I was thinking of him too much, and in other ways that weren't friend related.

I sighed deeply and walked towards the area of drinks. "There's some things I forgot to get when I came here last time. Like, soda."

"I have an idea. Louis thought of this before, but he never did it," Zayn said and grabbed something labeled 'mentos' from a shelf. Zayn had an evil glint in his eyes. I shivered a bit and grinned mischievously at him, getting an idea of what he's planning. "You do realize we might get banned from this Walmart for good right?"

"Yup. But it will be worth it."


Minutes later when the aisle of sodas was deserted, we started placing the liter sodas spaced out in the aisle. I covered my head with my hoodie so I wouldn't be recognized by cameras. We opened each soda as we placed them on the ground. When we finished setting it up, Zayn ran ahead into the middle of the aisle, leaving me at the end.

"Okay, ready?" He asked, amusement and excitement written all over his face. I nodded my head and gave him a devilish smile.

"1...2...3... GO!"

I started running down the aisle, dropping mentos into each bottle of soda. Every time I dropped one, the soda would errupt like a volcano. When I was finished at the end of the aisle, I was practically covered in soda, complimentary of Coca Cola. Zayn was laughing at the mess we made. I turned and watched the mess we made with a feeling of pride. The aisle was covered with soda on the floor and some on the shelves. I wouldn't be surprised if it reached the other aisles.

"Mission accomplished," I said and started laughing so hard that my stomach started to hurt. That's my favorite kind of pain and will always be.


"Oh shit!" I cursed and looked at Zayn. His face was frozen in mid-laughter. He started to laugh again like a maniac and grabbed my hand and sprinted to the exit. I struggled to catch up but soon I was running by Zayn, hand in hand, towards the car. He clicked open the car, and I jumped in. I saw some cashiers running out the store, trying to figure out where we went.

Zayn started the car and was soon speeding on the main road out of that place. The laughter I was holding in errupted out of me just like the sodas. Zayn looked at me like I was crazy and then started to laugh with me.

"Mission accomplished?" I asked.

"Mission accomplished." Zayn confirmed and pulled to the side of the road. "Now that has to be the best prank ever pulled in a store," he said and grinned. I giggled and held up my hand for a high five. Zayn didn't hesitate when he slapped his hand on mines, but he left his hand to linger there.

"You know, we make a great team. If this was a contest against Jaz and Riley, it would be a equal competition, considering that they always team up against me," I commented, my hand still on Zayn's in midair.

Zayn's eyes brightened in pride and grinned. I dunno, but for a second it reminded me of a cute evil bunny. Don't blame me, I have an active mind.

"I have an idea! We should have a prank day! That would be so fun!" He exclaimed and let his hand drop out of mine. I thought about it for a minute, and then nodded my head. That would definitely be fun.

"Maybe we should have that.... Wait, I feel like I'm forgetting something...." I murmured, thinking hard. Something important, it's at the tip of my tongue. Suddenly, I bolted straight when I remembered.

"I forgot about Panda! And then I have to pick up Jaz and Katrina! Ugh!" I exclaimed and sinked back in my seat. I can't believe it totally slipped my mind. Unbelievable.

"Hey, it's alright. We can go to pick up Panda right now and then we'll go to my place and get a bit cleaned up and then you'll go get Jaz and Riley. Don't stress yourself out—see how the prank took your mind off things? Relax. How mad can Jaz, Riley, and Panda could be?"
