Life As We Know It (Sequel to Holding On To What I Have)

Layla is with Zayn, Jordan is with Harry, Louis and Abi are together. But what happens when an old "friend" of Liam's comes back and brings a friend with her? Will Liam want to be with Katy? Will Niall find his princess?


10. Telling Harry

Layla's P.O.V

    We walked into the room, and there laid the boy who broke my heart. He looked so fragile, like anything could break him. And in all honesty, I liked it. Of course I don't want him to die, but he knew I was fragile. And he broke me, broke my heart and made it so hard for me to trust anyone. 

   We stood there for a few seconds when finally Jordan walked over to Danny and sat down in the seat next to his bed. She placed her her hand on his hand, and started crying. I ran over to Jordan and rubbed her shoulders. I always hated it when Jordan cried. She cried a lot when Halle and her father died. She looked up at me and sighed.

  "Why does this happen to me?" She asks me. "First dad, then Halle, and now it might be Danny."

Then Zayn steps up. "What does she mean her dad and Halle?" He asks. We look at him with sad eyes.

  "Jordan's dad died when she was 12, and her little sister Halle died 3 years ago. She was only 4." I explained to him. His eyes widened and he stared at Jordan.

  "Did you tell Harry that?" He asks.

  "No, why?" Jordan says.

   "There would be no way he would had let you come by yourself if he knew." Zayn told her.

  "But it's not his problem." Jordan whispers. "It's just my messed up life."

  "I think Harry deserves to know."

  "I don't want him to feel sorry for me. I have enough of that." Jordan says raising her voice.

   "I can understand that, but if you want a serious relationship with him, he should know that. I'm surprised it hasn't come up yet."

  "I know, I just don't like thinking about it!" Jordan says louder this time. I go over and grab Zayn's arm.

   "Just let it be, yeah?" I plead. I knew it was a hard subject for Jordan, and for me as well. I knew Halle very well. She was the sweetest little girl, always finding a way to brighten your day. Make you laugh at everything she says, and do the funniest things. 

   Zayn looks at me and nods. I give him a small smile and hug him, gosh I love him so much. "I'm going to go call my mum and tell her that I'm here." Jordan says getting up. 

  "I will go get us some food." Zayn says and leaves the room as well. Great, now it's just me and Danny. I go over and sit down next to him, and just stare at him. This was the boy who I thought I loved, who I had so many great memories with. My first real boyfriend, the one who broke my heart into so many pieces, another reason for making my life so miserable. Making hard for me to trust anyone.

   I slowly grab his lifeless hand and stroke it. I feel a tear escape and fall down my cheek. I wipe my face with my free hand. I sit there for a few minutes silent, then I speak"Why Danny? Why did you have to make me care for you so much? Why did you even bother with me? You were just going to dump me, or cheat on me forever." I whisper. I know he can't hear me, but I just want to talk, get things off my chest.

  I cup my other hand around his hand that I'm holding. "Why did you have to be so difficult? And you were so protective, never let me out of your sight. It was really annoying, I hated."

  Another tear fell, "I still wonder what my life would be like if you hadn't cheated on me. If we would still be together. If I would still be living in Brighton, if I would have still been friends with Jordan. But most importantly, if I would still love you."

  Then  heard something move from behind me. I turned around and saw and very mad looking Zayn standing there. "I can't believe you!" He said with such anger.

  "Za-" I started, but he interrupted me.

  "You told me I was the first person you ever loved. That you never felt the same way about someone else. Was it all just a lie? Why? Did you just want to know the famous Zayn Malik? I thought you liked me for me." He said, as he threw the food he had in his hands down on the floor.

  "Zayn! What I said wasn't a lie! I love you for you, I couldn't care less if you were famous, or if you were homeless!" I say getting up and rushing over to him.

  He backs up and looks at me like I might hurt him, "Really, because you just said that you loved him!" He yells pointing at Danny.

  "I thought I loved him! Zayn, he was my first boyfriend. The first person who made me feel like I actually had a small purpose in this world. But I realized it was all a lie, he said everything he said to me to that other girl. The one person that I actually cared about betrayed me, in one of the worst ways possible!" I say, and start crying harder. First the tears came slowly and silently. Now I was sobbing and choking for air. 

   "Lay, I'm sorry. I over reacted, please calm down. I, I just really love you. And I can't stand that you might have loved someone else before me. It would just make me wonder if they were better than me." He says and pulls me into a hug, he rubs my back as I sob into his shirt.

  "He hurt me so much, I, I  thought he loved me. He lied to me so many times." I choke out.

   "Shhhh, please babe. It's alright. No one will ever hurt you again. I promise." He coos. I wrap my arms around him and hold him close, as if my life depended on it. 

   "I'm sorry." I say to him.

    "There is no reason for you to be sorry." He whispers. "I swear if he ever wakes up, he will wish he didn't."

   "Zayn, please. You don't have to do anything."

   "Yes I do. He hurt you, how could he hurt the most beautiful girl in the world? You are the best thing in my life, and I will never let you go without a fight."

   I smile into his shirt. I hear someone walk in the room. I lift my head and see Jordan.

   "Sorry to interrupt." She says.

   "Oh no, you're not." She sits down in the chair and stares at her brother. We just stand there for a few minutes when her phone rings, she looks at the caller I.D. and I see that it's Harry.

   She answers it, "Hey!" She sounds the happiest I've heard her all day. She stays silent for a few moments, "No baby, it's alright. I will be back soon. No please stop crying." She says and rushes out of the room.

   "I hope she tells him." Zayn says. I guess she might have to tell Harry sooner than she had hoped.
