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?


8. The search continues and ends with revenge

Katrina's POV

"There's a job open at Hollister," Jaz said as she sat down. "And there's a job at JCPenny," Riley added before she took a big bite off her burger. We were having Chick-fil-a in the Food Court. Yum.

"There's a job at Aeropostale too," I said and ate a french fry. It's strange that when I'm in public with my friends, we eat one small bite at a time, but at home we would be stuffing our faces full.

"Ok, right now we're desperate, so I'm not gonna worry about how much they pay per hour. Which job do you each want?" I asked, not giving a damn about the job I might end up with."I want that minor modeling job at Hollister," Jaz claimed and took a sip of her soda.

"Okay," me and Riley said, since we both knew we would hate that job. It would be like you're a doll, people choose your clothes and put on your makeup. "I'll take the cashier job at JCPenny. It'll be easy, and I think there's an employee discount," Riley said excitedly.

"Sure, so that means I get the assistant manager job at Aeropostale then," I said, and checked the time on my phone. "We have about 3 hours til we meet the guys. We should go claim those jobs before they're taken," I suggested. "Alright," and they finished up their lunches.

"When we're done, we can meet here and then go home," Riley said and threw away her trash in the bin. "Aight, this should take less than 2 hours anyway," Jaz added. "Legooo," Riley said and walked off in the direction of JCPenny. "See ya," Jaz said and walked to Hollister.

"Ok then," I said and turned around and walked back to Aeropostale.


"Wooo-hooo!" Riley said as she walked over to me and Jaz in the Food Court. "I'm finished with job searching. I got that job at watcha-ma-call-it..... JCPenny," Riley said as she sat down on the chair. "I got the job at Hollister but they need me to wear more Hollister products, but whatever,"Jaz said and rolled her eyes.

"I got the Aero job. So now, can we go home?" I asked and got up from my chair. "Yuppers. Let's get outta here," Jaz replied. "Freedom ahead!" Riley screamed and ran out the mall's door to the parking lot. I laughed and followed her with Jaz at my side.


"Home, sweet, home," I said with a sigh as I opened the door to the house. Riley jogged past me and plopped herself onto the couch and buried her face in the cushion. Jaz plopped herself on the other couch, just like Riley. I sat down on the recliner and put my feet up.

"I'm tired," Riley mumbled with her face still in the cushion. "Oh, I almost forgot again. We still have to see the... hmmm....boys," I said between yawns. "Ohmagosh! But I'm tired and it's so comfortable here," Jaz said and then I heard a snore.

Then I heard Riley snoring. All of a sudden, I had the most awesome idea ever. I checked my watch. Just an hour left, there's still time.

Time for payback........


Riley's POV

'Beep! Beep! Beep!'

I rolled over and fell onto the floor when I heard that noise. Jaz did the same thing and rolled on the floor. "What the hell is that?" Jaz asked with fear in her eyes.

"I dunno!" I exclaimed and looked around me. The beeping was coming from everywhere around me. "Is it the end of the world? Already? Are we gonna die? What if it's a bomb? I'm too young to die!" Jaz said with a wail.

"Shut up Jaz!" I said and tried to think. One of the beeping noises was coming from under the couch. Without thinking, I reached underneath and grabbed something metal and square-like and pulled it out.

It was a fucking alarm clock. Dammit, Katrina. "Jaz, can you calm the fuck down? It's just some alarm clocks."

"What? Who would- Katrina," she said and started to get up from the floor. "Katrina! Where the hell are you?" Jaz screamed so loud that I bet the neighbors windows must've broke.

"Yes?" Katrina asked and cane downstairs, smiling innocently. "What. The. Actual. Fuck." Jaz said slowly and turned off the rest off the alarms. "Revenge is sweet," Katrina said and started laughing like a maniac.

And you know what I did? I got up and lunged for her. I am going to kill her.


Katrina's POV

I was laughing like a madman, that is until Riley lunged for me. I jumped out her way, grabbed that recorded the whole thing (not sure if I should post this on YouTube), and ran upstairs.

"You guys should get ready, 'cuz we have half an hour to get ready," I shouted downstairs and ran into my room and locked the door. "Revenge is soooo sweet," I said to myself and started laughing again.

I went into my closet and changed into some grey sweatpants, tan UGGs, a black tank top, my hoodie, and plaited my hair in a side braid. I wanted to dress as comfortable as possible, not giving a damn about what people think of me.

I put my camera, phone, and keys in my pocket. I stick my head out my door, just in case Riley and Jaz tried anything on me. I went downstairs and they were in the kitchen drinking water. I cracked a smile at them, wondering what they would do to me.

Riley gave me a funny look and Jaz put her glass down. "You little bitch. But I have to admit, that was a good prank. A great prank even," Riley said with a straight face and started grinning. "I wish I thought of that," Jaz added in.

I smiled and took out my keys. "Why, thank you very much madam. Now shall we go?" I asked with a raised eyebrow and a British accent.

"Yeah," they said and started making their way outside. "Can I drive?" Jaz asked and batted her eyelashes at me. I sighed after a second and then tossed the keys to her. "Yes!" She whispered to herself.

"I call shotgun," Riley said. "Whatever," I said and rolled my eyes as I got in the back seat. "That means there's more space for me," I said with a smirk. Jaz started the car and soon we were on our way.

"How did you get the idea of the alarm clocks?" Riley asked out of nowhere. "Well.... Ummm.... I remembered the way you woke me up with the balloons and I just looked at you guys sleeping. And I just wanted revenge," I answered.

"Interesting....." Jaz said, keeping her eyes on the road. "I am never going to look at the couch and fall asleep there the same way ever again," Riley said. I smiled. I planned on showing the boys the video of them acting crazy when the alarms went off.

But, now I felt that they weren't going to get me back, especially since we're even. Now I'm beginning to think it was a bit too mean to take video off it and show to other people and possibly post in online. But they actually recorded the pranks they did on me, so I'm not going to hesitate about it anymore.I decided I was just going to show it to the boys and that's it.

"This is the right address right?" Jaz asked and I snapped out of my thoughts. I looked the house and the number on it. "Yup, 1120 Oakland Court," I confirmed. "Ok, let's boogie," Riley said and got out of the car.

"Yeah, let's boogie," I muttered sarcastically under my breath as I got out the car.


I rung the doorbell, a bit nervous. Why am I nervous? I looked back at my friends. They both winked at me at the same time. Weird.

I rolled my eyes and faced the door as someone opened it. "Hola chicas," Liam said with a honest smile. I relaxed a little bit when I saw him. "Come in," he said and opened the door more wide.

Well, too late to turn around. I smiled and walked in with my friends behind me.
