We Were Just Best Friends

Zayn's just broken up with Perrie. He's heartbroken... and wasted. There's a lovely lady standing on the corner, beckoning him over. He can't do it though.
Harry could however....
Zayn and Kate become really close, talking almost everyday, even when Zayn's on tour.
he surprises her by not telling when he is back in town. Harry though cannot wait.

btw: i have nothing against Perrie and Zayn :) Or Harry for that matter.


11. Postponing a rather important date

Zayn's pov.

"Mate please just call her." Liam groaned. I stood over near the door looking at the coat rack. Maybe I should put Niall's ratty hoody under my jacket so we don't look like slobs...

"Liam, you can't just 'call her' over here, it has to be perfect."
And the kitchen should probably be more organized, I thought to myself.

"Why not, we've been here a week and you still haven't brought her over yet."
My bathroom cabinet could do with a cleaning out.

"Zayn!" Liam snaps and I look over at him.


"It'll be fine. The flat looks great. I don't think she will really care."

In all honesty it wasn't really the flat that u was worried about. More so the lads. Liam would probably be normal for a few hours. But Niall would eat the nice lunch I had planned out. And Lou and Harry would just make sly sexual inendus all day.

"I dunno, her place is always so perfectly put together...."

"Do you think she really tries this hard?"

We had been back for a week now, and at first I wanted just to ask Kate out to lunch like usual. Then I figured, hell, we had been away long enough, I should do something a little more, like make her lunch instead of the other way around. Of course then she would have to come here. The lads had been dying to meet her. Well mostly Niall be because he wasn't there the very first night. I think he had caught glimpses of her when I video chatted with Kate but that was it.

Harry and Louis just wanted to snicker their way through an informal get together. Harry worried me the most. If she had quit, then he would try and pick her up, I was sure of it. I had resigned myself to a certain doom which involved me picking Kate up and taking her to my flat. Then have a nice filling lunch in which it would go greatly, then lead her into the T.V. room for afternoon activities with my mates, making us all great friends.

Liam finally let the subject drop, just adding, "Danielle would've killed me she found I was in town for a week and didn't call her."

I twisted around. "Well me and Kate are not dating, so I can make my friend wait a little longer."

Liam just smirked at me. "I'm sure. Friend." His voice deepened a little as he tried to imitate my accent. "Oh Kate. She is just so fit, but I won't ever like her. And she has a degree from a collage and she is so smart. She makes such delicious sandwiches and is just too funny."

I frowned at him and ignored the last part. "Yes Liam, friends."

His smirk deepened. "Zayn you will inevitably end up fancying her. No one talks about 'just a friend' that much for that long, and tries so hard to make their arrival perfect to be 'just friends'."

"Will you stop saying it like that!"

"What? You mean 'just friends'? Why would I say it any other way? Unless you aren't just friends-"

I turned back around to straighten a chair. Did I start to think of Kate as more of a friend? Sure, but like best friends, or more? Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? But I had Gabby, who I really liked.

"Fine Liam, I will bring her 'round tomorrow. Make sure all the lads are here and decent at 12:30."

He nodded and grabbed his phone, heading towards the door. "And I will tell them to come for?"

"The meeting they've all been waiting for."

He left and I sank down onto the couch. Hmm it seemed to have one too many pillows....

Kate's pov.

I was shopping with Jessica when she had told me the great news. A few years older than me at 22, she really wasn't in to the Directioner scheme like the younger girls. Neither was I, because of Zayn, but she didn't really need to know that. In fact i surprised she hadn't found out or recognized me earlier.

"So, I heard One Direction was back in town," She slid in carefully as I looked at clubbing dresses. I paused, my clenched hand wrinkling the fabric. "Oh really, for how long?"

"The tabloids said they came in from the airport some four days ago and are staying for a holiday for 5 months."

I looked at the dress. It was perfect for tonights outing. It was another friend's birthday and we were going to a club downtown.

But really Zayn had been back for almost a week and hadn't bothered to call me? Well then. He was probably busy.

"We should totes go fangirl," Jess laughed.

"Yeah really great fun," I
joked back.

"I found it!" She shrieked quietly, pulling a small tube dress in a light pink, with white threads covering it, cutting it into sections off the hanger.

Paying for the dresses, we slipped out of the shopping centre and pulled into a drive through for Nandos.

Zayn had made me promise, when I used to pick up lunch for the two of us never to ever come here. 'I've had too much of it' he had groaned and made retching noises onto my food. I'd pushed his big stupid head away....

"Kate? Kate!" I shook my head as I realized the car was stopped. "We are here.

I looked out the passengers side window. My flat we were. I quickly got out, grabbing my food and new dress.

"Got everything, air head?"

I slammed her door jokingly. "Yeah see you tonight."

Kay, see you tonight, 10.

I unlocked my door and made my way over to my charging mobile which I had forgotten to bring. A new message. From Zayn your best friend forever, I laughed when he had put that in. It was not my choice. Unlocking it, the text read: hey I love you sm! Xx

It was the third time it happened. I always brushed it off, Zayn had explained that the boys must take his phone.

I wish for a message that said: hey I'm back. Do you want to hang out?
But in all reality I knew it wouldn't happen like that. I could feel me and Zayn feeling less dependent on each other. He used to feel all... emotional and mopey while I tried too hard not to care. But now things had gotten better for us....

Don't get me wrong he was still so fun and interesting to talk to, and never was there a dull moment, but then he got a girlfriend. So he didn't call as much. Not that I blame Gabby or anything, I would get wicked jealous too.

And yet I still felt as if we were tight enough for him at least to tell me he was coming back! Guess not. Maybe it was just a fring... A friend fling? God I sounded so fucking ridiculous.

I set my sights on tonight and I knew I would enjoy my self.
