8. Heat of the Moment

I woke up the next morning to light beaming in through the windows and to the smell of bacon. I sat up and pulled my hair back into a ponytail. My hair always comes out of a ponytail in my sleep, but thats beside the point. I wiped my eyes and went into the bathroom to brush my teeth and such. I soon walked into the kitchen to see Emeli making omelets and bacon. I guess you can tell that she loves to cook. 

"Morning love bug," She said smiling. "I got you a plate down." She said handing it to me.

"Thanks," I said. I was still groggy. I picked up a few pieces of bacon and an omelet and placed it on my plate. Emeli had already had me a coke sitting on the table. I pulled out the chair and helped myself into the table to soon be joined by Em. We both sat in silence eating our food. We were never this quite. Emeli finally broke the silence. 

"Have you told Zayn?" She asked.

SHIT. I was supposed to call him last night and I forgot. and Harry too. DAMN. I don't want Harry getting the wrong idea, but with Zayn.. I just don't know. I didn't think about how I was going to tell him this. 

"No," I said. "I'm not going to."

"What do you mean you're not going to," She said taking a bite of bacon.

"I'm just not going to talk to him anymore. Damn Em." 

"You need to tell him."

"Well I'm not going to," I said getting angry. I tried to change the subject. "Do you want to go to the mall today?"
"Sure, I don't like you changing the subject though." 

I finished my food and took my plate and placed it in the sink. Em went into the living room to get ready for the day, and I continued to the bathroom. I got in the shower, and did my usual routine. I stepped out of the steamy shower and went into my bedroom and opened my wardrobe. I pulled out my favorite black crop top, and pair of jeans. I slipped on my black flip flops and grabbed a purse and walked into the living room to wait on Em. She took forever to get ready. She was ready 20 minutes later and we headed out to the car.

We both hopped into my red Mini Cooper and turned on the radio. Our favorite artist was on. Ed Sheeran. We both could keep a tune, but we weren't singers. Whenever this song came on the radio we couldn't resist singing. 

"I was told to put my job in front of you, But it won't hold me like you do.

But I do it for the love, Waiting on the gold rush

Keep it on the edge, Smoking on a roll up

When I see my friends, All they say is hold up

and , remember the time, When we were in school

Listening to grown ups, Didn't learn a thing

But then again you know what, You know how to sing

But you don't know anything other than that"

More songs came on the radio and we both continued to sing. About the 4th song into the playlist we arrived at the mall. This mall was me and Em's favorite. It had one of the gigantic Topshop's in it. It was connected with a Topman. We got out of the car and headed into the mall to make our first stop. Miss Selfridge. We looked around for a while but didn't see anything we liked. This store was always a hit or miss, and today, it was a MAJOR miss.

Next we walked into Topshop. There were so many things I wanted but couldn't afford to buy. I saw a red peplum blouse and decided to go try it on. 

"Hey Em. I'm gonna go try this on, I'll be back," I said walking away from her.

I made my way back to the fitting room, and as I was walking in, a tall man bumped into me.

"Watch it!" I snapped.

"Sorry love," He said. 

I knew that voice. It couldn't be. I looked up and saw his dark hair with the quiff in the front. His hazel eyes. His crooked smile.

"Rhi," He said. "You didn't call."

"I know," I said. "I got busy."

"With Harry?" He asked with a smirk on his face.

"Ha Ha very funny," I said sarcastically.

"Rhi, I was kidding." He said grabbing my left hand. He looked down and saw the gigantic ring on my finger. His smile turned to a pissed look quickly. He slung my hand down and stormed out of the store. 

"Zayn! Please!," I shouted. "I can explain."

He didn't turn around. I walked back out into the store. I didn't even want this shirt anymore. I looked around for Emeli and saw her in the shoes. Of course. I didn't want to shop anymore. I just wanted to go home right now. I walked over to her with tears in my eyes. I couldn't believe what had just happened. I didn't want to hurt him like that. 

"Em. I want to go home," I said trying to hold back the tears.

"What happened," She asked giving me a hug.

"Zayn," I cried. "He saw my ring and stormed out without saying a word." 

"Oh honey. Its okay. Just give him time. He'll get over it," She said rubbing my head.

We walked out of the store and back out to my car. I didn't want to drive home with this much on my mind. I gave Emeli the keys to my car and she drove us back. Memories with Zayn flooded through my mind. I couldn't help but wonder why I felt this for him. I was engaged. It was time to move on from this teenage romance. It meant nothing to me anymore, I told myself. Lies. Lies. Lies. Lies.

We arrived at my apartment and Em decided to leave me alone. She went to her car and went home, while I returned to my beloved couch. I got a blanket and laid down and tried to go to sleep. But I couldn't. I couldn't get Zayn off my mind. I grabbed my phone and decided to text him.

To: Zaynn :*

Message: I'm sorry. Please come over. I can explain. 

*NO RESPONSE*

 

To: Zayn :*

Message: Zayn please. Just listen. I was going to tell you but I didn't want to hurt you. 

*NO RESPONSE*

*NO RESPONSE*

 

Zayn's POV

How could she? And she couldn't even tell me!? That bitch! I spent my whole day trying to satisfy her and make her realize that I was what she needed. She said she loved me! Does that mean anything to her? I felt my phone buzz in my pocket. 

From: Baby Rhi

Message: I'm so sorry. Please come over. I can explain.

-Why would I want to come over. Just to talk about how I was loosing her to Harry? It breaks my heart thinking about it. I can't see that ring on her finger again. Maybe I'm being over dramatic, but it hurts. Have you ever felt like that? My phone buzzed again.

 

From: Baby Rhi

Message: Zayn please. Just listen. I was going to tell you but I didn't want to hurt you.

-Really. You didn't want to hurt me? Then why the FUCK did you say yes?! I shouldn't have let myself fall for her. She was happy with Harry, and I shouldn't have tried to meddle with that. This is on me. I set myself up for this. Its time to be a big boy and move on. My phone buzzed again. Damn Rhiannon. Get a life. I don't want to talk to you anymore.

 

From: Baby Rhi

Message: Be like that then asshole. You weren't worth my time anyway. Love, Rhiannon Alice STYLES.

-That was a punch below the belt. I couldn't hear that. Rhiannon Styles. It should be Rhiannon Malik. Oh well. Moving on. No big deal. It is nothing. I'm fine. Stay strong Zayn. Stay strong. The tears started rolling down my face. I couldn't imagine my life without her. 

I wiped the tears from my face. I wasn't going to let her get under my skin like that. Did it hurt? Yeah it hurt like hell. But in the end I'm going to be okay. It just wasn't meant to be with us.

 

*Harry's POV*

I haven't heard from Rhiannon. I hope she's okay. Its unlike her not to call me when she said she would. Maybe she was just having fun with Emeli. Hopefully. I grabbed the keys off my counter and went out to my Range Rover. Rhiannon didn't live that far away from me. I drove over to her house and was there in a flash. I walked up to the door and used the key to open the door. Since we didn't live together we both just had keys to each others houses. I walked in to see Rhi on the couch asleep. She is a VERY heavy sleeper. I decided to pick her up and carry her to the bed. I picked her up bridal style and carried her over to the bed and got in with her. I wrapped my arms around her and drifted off into a sleep with her. It had been a while since we'd done this. I missed it. It was about 4 o'clock in the afternoon when we fell asleep.

 

*Rhiannon's POV*

I woke up in my bedroom, wondering how I got there. I looked over to my right and saw a man asleep. I screamed. He jumped up and shouted, "What is it?!" 

"Harry I told you, you can't just sneak up on me like that," I said laughing. I kissed him and laid back down with him. It was almost 7:30 that evening. I laid my head on his chest. Everything felt perfect in this moment. I could stay like this forever. 

"Do you want to stay here tonight?" I asked. "Its been a while."

"Of course I do," He said kissing me softly on the forehead. "But we should go somewhere."

"Like where?" I asked.

"That I can't tell you. Its a surprise," He said cracking a grin and pulling me off of the bed. 

I jumped on his back and he carried me out to his Range Rover and helped me in.
