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.


6. Thursadays events

Thursdays events I got a lot of smack leading up to the casual day. From Harry mostly. Funny because he encouraged me to go up to her in the first place. Idiot. I got up earlier than I planned and thought about how I would treat today. As a date?! Na. Just as... Acquaintances. Meeting up. After a night where I was supposed to have sex with her, and instead told her about my life. Yeah this wouldn't be awkward one bit.


My car idled out side of Kate's house as I nervously tapped the steering wheel. Kate came running out wearing regular blue jeans and a t- shirt. Completely normal. Good.

She jumped in and slammed the door, making me jump out of my monologue. "Hey Malik."

I sighed. "Erm, hi." She gave me a funny look, but put on her seat belt anyway, slapping the dash board.

"Lets roll Zayn!"

We walked around for a little while, not really buying much, just window shopping. It was so easy to be around her. Kate was actually really funny. We stopped to eat in an outdoor cafe and seated ourselves.

She made a comment that I really enjoyed half way through lunch. "You are a bad drunk. You don't swear as much right now." I had bursted out laughing. "I know I've been told."

We covered so many topics the first half of the day, our conversations started to drag. So Kate of course made it interesting.

"Malik," she said, sounding dead serious, "ask me anything." She shrugged and waited.

I thought for a moment. "Okay. Tell me about your... job?" She looked shocked for a moment, then settled back down into an easy grin.

"Well lets see I've told you why I need it. I hate it unbelievably, but the money is nice. I work only on Friday and Saturday mights. I do want to be respectable someday, just right now, I need a day job." I mulled this over. Kate suddenly snapped her fingers in front of my face.

"Malik? Earth to Malik! Now can I ask you anything?" I nodded, though with a bit trepidation; Kate was carefree and smart.

"Do you think this a date and I was flirting with you?" Well that's a doozy, and really straightforward. I look up at her and laugh uneasily.

"That's more than one question."

"I never set a quantity."

"Yeah... To be honest, I was afraid this was and you were." She threw her head back and laughed, all tension gone.

"And why is that?"

"I'm not sure. I know I don't like you in that way, but when you called me up I was afraid you considered this a date."

"Arrogant are we?"

"Perhaps," I said, messing with her head a bit, "mostly the lads were hyping me up."

"Ah I see. The same ones encouraging your to get a hooker?" I laughed again.

"The very same. How did you know?"

She flipped her hair over her shoulder and looked dead at me. "I am NOT flirting with you Malik. It's weird, I feel no physical attraction to you at all," she frowned, "it's probably cause I saw you at your worst. Wouldn't want that kind of boyfriend. Then again, you saw me at my worst too.

"So," Kate said, "just friends?"

"Just friends." We shook on it.
