28. Speaking Out
*4 days later*
I put on the tv and sat down on the couch. I grabbed a blanket and wrapped it around myself. Just as I got comfortable the interview started. Five boys walked on the screen and squeezed onto the tiny couch. Of course Alan Carr had to give them a drink. They talked about their new album and tour and eventually he asked about relationships. "So who is single?" Liam and Harry raised their hands. "So Louis it's Eleanor isn't it?" "Yeah," he replied grinning. They talked about El for a few minutes then Niall talked about Abby and eventually he got to Zayn. "So your girlfriend is Emily right?" He asked. "Yup," Zayn replied. "How did you meet?" "In Barbados on the beach." "Ooh...and you have been together a while now." "Yeah, she's great really." "Isn't that sweet. I don't know if you want me to talk about this but you had started a family and well you lost the baby. Was that hard on you?" "It was hard on me, it was even worse on Emily though, I still blame myself for what happened after she lost the baby." "What happened?" "It's not my business to tell, if Emily wants people to know she'll do it herself." "Moving on then...You two had a bit of a break recently. What was that about?" "Something happened and we just needed time apart to try and figure things out," he replied looking at Harry quickly. "Well that's enough for now boys. Come back after the break when One Direction will be performing live." It went to an ad break and I sulked in the couch. People would be curious now about what happened, I wish he knew how to keep his mouth shut.
I got home from the interview on Chatty Man and saw Emily asleep on the couch with the tv on. I picked her up and carried her up to bed. I kissed her forehead and went back downstairs. Just as I got down my phone rang. I answered it quickly so it wouldn't wake Emily. "Hello is this Mr Malik?" "Speaking." "We have your item in stock if you would like to collect it tomorrow." "Thank you, i'll come in tomorrow." "Goodbye." "Bye." I went on twitter for a while and then I climbed in bed beside her. I wrapped my arms around her and fell asleep thinking about her reaction to what I was going to do.
