11. Leaving Home
We got out of the cab and walked up the path to her house. I had her hand in mine as she opened the door. "I'm home!" She shouted. Her parents walked out of a room and came straight to her. They hugged her and asked her about her time away. She told them about the Summer and finally her dad looked at me. "Who is this?" He asked her. "This is my boyfriend Zayn." "Hello sir," I said to him. "How come you never told us about him?" He questioned. "I thought it was gonna be over when we left Barbados but he came after me." "You better not hurt her, or you'll have me to deal with." He threatened. I nodded my head.
We sat down for dinner and I prepared myself to tell them. My mum was in the kitchen and my dad was on the phone so I grabbed Zayn's hand under the table and kissed him quickly. As my mum came back into the room he pulled me towards him a little bit and whispered in my ear "I love you." I smiled at him and mouthed I love you too. We finished eating and I started to talk. "I've got something to tell you. I'm moving to London with Zayn." "W-what?" "I'm moving." "Can you not move?" He asked Zayn. "I offered to leave my band to move here so I can be with her but she won't let me." "I don't want you leaving." "I'm going and you can't stop me. I'm 19 so I can do what I want." "I'll miss you sweetie," mum said to me.

I was in my bedroom packing my things into boxes. I had most of my things packed by now and my best friend Abby was coming with me. This made it even better. Zayn wasn't being much of a help, he was standing in front of the big mirror most of the time and if he wasn't he was trying to distract me. I wasn't complaining but I needed to get everything packed. I had what I needed in suitcases and my mum was going to ship the rest over.

"I'll miss you," she said to her mum. "I'll miss you too." She hugged her again and went to her dad. He hugged her and he came towards me. He pulled me aside. "You better treat her right. She's been through a lot and I don't want to do what I did to that Trevor again but I will if I have to." "I won't hurt her. I love her and I intend to marry her someday."
We got on the plane heading back to Barbados. We had to go back there first to meet the rest of the boys. Apparently Abby had spoken to Niall on skype before so she was looking forward to meeting him. Emily lay her head on my shoulder and fell asleep. I rested my head above hers and soon enough I fell asleep too.
