Going through Here and There

Victoria lived most of her life living a lie. Then she meets up with an old friend in an exhibition and they contact each other again. But is everything real, or is it a lie? Or is everything just a dream and a vision?


4. Meeting Again

I blinked several times, finding it almost hard to believe who was standing infront me. I felt like an idiot looking straight at the guy's face. I knew I looked weird, I knew I looked completely dumbfound.
"You still haven't changed have you?" Zayn said looking at me. "You still look the way you did the last time I saw you."
"Zayn!" I said feeling my heart skip a beat. I was so happy to see him again, I never saw him ever since he left to audition for Xfactor. Fine I did see him on TV, but that's so far from seeing him in real life. I hugged him before I could stop myself, to my surprise he hugged back. "What are you doing here?" I asked him letting go of the hug.
"Well, first of all I'm Zayn Malik," he said as he stroked his hair. "I'm a special guest. How about you?" He asked while I started thinking of answers to that question. I mean, I can't tell him that I work for a corporation and I'm here to watch the exhibition. It sounds quite far fetched.
"I heard there were some Egyptian artifacts here," I lied but I knew I sounded convincing, cause I'm a spy! That's what I've practically done my whole life. "I'm interested in Egyptian history."
"That's nice," he said, and I saw a smile from in his lips. "Hey, are you hungry? The boys and I were just about to go grab dinner." He asked and it was then that I realized I didn't eat dinner yet. But I couldn't leave my post, the corporation would kill me for abandoning my task.
"Um, I would love to, but I can't," I decided to say, Zayn looked at me and I knew that he wanted a deeper reason. He was always like that, he always wanted a further more explanation. "I promised my Aunt that I'll meet her here, she might get mad at me."
"Then call her," he insisted and there was something in his eyes that I couldn't put right.
I got my phone from my purse and dialled the head of the task committee.
"Hello?" I said. "Oh, um, I'm going to go grab dinner for awhile with a friend. I'll go home on my own, so you can tell the chaffeur that he no longer needs to wait for me."
"Okay," was the only reply I got. I turned to Zayn who was waiting for a reply.
"Yeah, my Aunt said that I can go," I said, and he smiles at me.
"Let's go," he said and waited for me to follow him. I followed Zayn up to his car, he gestured me to enter so I got in.
We arrived in the restaurant and the boys were already there. Harry, Niall, Liam and Louis they were all there. I can't help but feel my fangirl side ting up. I was big fan of One Direction until the corporation said it was a distraction, so I was prohibited from thinking about One Direction. Zayn pushed me forward gently, he pulled my seat for me and I sat down. Zayn was such a gentleman, I can't help but notice that as a fact.
"Hey guys this is Camille," he said introducing me to his friends. "She's one of my childhood friends." His friends all greeted and they were all very welcoming.
"Hi," I said looking at each one of the boys. They were all good looking, and their smiles were so perfect. Oh they were like PERFECT!
"What's your order," Zayn asked me handing me the menu. I looked at the menu, and then turned to Zayn. He was waiting for a reply but I so didn't know what to order.
"I'll just have whatever you're having," I said giving the menu to the waiter. He smiled and instructed the waiter to double whatever he was having. To be honest, I have never felt so ignorant in my life. It seemed like it was my first time to be in a fancy restaurant, when it really wasn't.
"What's your drink?" Zayn asked again.
"Um, what are your canned drinks?" I asked the waiter.
"We have Pepsi, canned juice, four seasons, canned milk," the waiter replied.
"I'll have your four seasons," I decided. "And please keep it closed, don't open it." I added and I swear I heard Zayn laugh a little. I turned to look at Zayn after the waiter left, there was laughter in his eyes.
"You never change do you," Zayn said. "You're exactly the way I remembered you. All this years of not seeing one another, you haven't changed a single bit."
"What's that supposed to mean?" I said feeling a bit embarrassed by his comment. I mean like why do I have to change. Is it bad being me?
"You still prefer canned drinks, you still finding history interesting, you order whatever I order," he said smiling. "You're still the same."
"Well, I guess if you put it that way," I said feeling my cheeks burn a little bit.
"So, Camille, how did you and Zayn meet?" Louis said, and Zayn immediately shut his mouth.
"We were classmates," I answered.
"Was he a good boy?" Harry said teasing Zayn. I knew they knew what I was going to say. But what can I say it was the truth, Zayn wasn't really a good boy.
"Let's just say, he's not a really good boy," was what I finally answered. I looked at Zayn and he was laughing. "Go on tell them how bad I was," Zayn said laughing.
"Well you were always sent to the principal's office!" I pointed out. "And everytime you tried to tell a girl you loved her, you end up being a joke!"
"Woah!" Zayn said, looking at me but his eyes were still full of laughter. "I did not end up being a joke!" He protested and the boys were just sitting down watching us argue, as if they liked what was happening.
"Yeah, you did," I said looking down at the table.
"Really?" Zayn said keeping up the conversation. "Who told you?"
"I heard, okay. I was in the girls' room and they were teasing you, Zayn." I admitted. "I just didn't want to tell you cause they took it all back."
"Oh," Zayn said and all the laughter in his eyes faded out.
"Hahaha you lose," Louis told Zayn.
"So you and Zayn were classmates," Niall said. "Did you guys ever compete in class or fight?"
"I didn't do competitions," I admitted and I saw Zayn smile. "Oh yeah, you didn't cause you were always or mostly absent." Zayn said and I knew that was his way of getting even.
"You get sick easily?" Liam asked me.
"No, well um yeah before." I said and I turned to Zayn.
The waiter had already returned with all of our orders. We ate throughout dinner, but it wasn't quiet. There were lots of teasing, laughing and talking.
After dinner, the boys left ahead of time and it was only Zayn and I left all alone.
"So do you plan on going back to school?" I asked him.
"I don't know, it might ruin my carreer," Zayn said and I looked at him. His eyes were still hazel and his smile will always be the same. Oh, he was perfect, I thought to myself. But I knew I couldn't tell him that or he'll think I have some interest in him or something. "You know I might get disturbed by all of the school work and then I might end up abandoning my carreer."
"Oh I get it," I said taking a sip of water. "How about you?" Zayn asked me. I was silent for some time and I finally decided to speak.
"I dropped out of school way before," I said feeling myself choke.
"Why?" Was all that he asked me. I didn't expect him to ask that question though.
"Um, I just wanted too," I said. To be honest, my I.Q. was already super high. The corporation trained all spies to be intellectualy smart. I didn't need to study already, cause the corporation taught me all advanced things that I bet some people don't even know.
"Oh," he said and there was silence going on between both of us, I couldn't look up at Zayn so I kept my head down.
"It's getting late," I said standing up." I should go now." Zayn stood up from his chair too.
"I'll drive you home," he offered. He got his car key out and we left the restaurant. He opened the door for me, and when I got in he closed it. Again, he is such a gentleman.
We drove into the night until we reached my house. Before I got out, I decided to say a goodbye chat.
"Hey, thanks for dinner," I said looking at Zayn.
"It was nothing," he said looking at me. Our eyes met and I quickly looked away.
"A-anyway you can visit anytime you want, I live on my own" I told him. "If you have time. Just call me cause I don't like surprises." Zayn nodded and I left the car I shut it close and walked towards the house.
