9. Count on me
Claire took the jar of pickles and sat down on the bed. She switched on the tv and was looking for a movie to watch. I walked over to the bed and straightened the pillows. I lay my head on the head board and mentioned Claire to lay by me. Her head was by my chest and she switched on the vow. I started twirling one of her dirty blond strands.
As we laid there on the bed watching the vow i could hear and feel Zayn's heartbeat it seemed calmer when he was with me. He grabbed my hand and intertwined our fingers. I slowly drifted off to sleep.
**1 hour later**
I woke up to what seemed like thunder. Then i heard a lot of screaming and shouting. Oh no! Wa it fans? Paparazzi? Just then Claire woke up. "Hello sleepy head" i said with a smirk. She looked at me and grinned, then she turned to go back to sleep. "As much as you want to sleep love, i wouldn't suggest doing that. We need to leave now! Someone, fans or paparazzi i don't know, got in. So we need to leave." I said twirling her hair. She pecked me on the cheek and grabbed her stuff. I got up and went to the cabinet and grabbed the healing cream and the bandages. I grabbed Claire's hand and we sprinted to the fire escape. Finally we exited the building and were on the side. We carefully checked each corner making sure there weren't any fans or paparazzi. Clear. We then sprinted to my car. "Are you alright love?" I asked as soon as we got into the car. "Yeah. Im fine." She said. I can see it in her eyes shes disappointed. "Claire, tell me. I know something's wrong." I looked at her and i could tell she was upset. I looked into her eyes. They were sparkling even more because of the tears that were growing in eyes. She turned away from my gaze. Tears spilling out of her eyes. I lightly grabbed her chin pulling it so she would look me in the eyes. I wiped her tears away with my thumb. "Remember Claire. I will always be here for you. Im here alright. Anything you need ill be here. You can count on me."
