2. Party Time

Angel pulled me through the crowds of people hanging around the Andrews mansion. Since it was at this mansion, everyone was scattered everywhere. Literally. There was people everywhere.

We finally got to the backyard were the party was really going on. "Wow." I said as we stepped onto the grass. "I know, isn't it crazy. These parties are the best!" She squealed.

I watched as couples pulled each other onto the makeshift dance floor. I watched as others stood around the outdoor bar and drank shot after shot. "C'mon, lets dance!" Angel said as she started to jump around. I smiled back at her. Tonight I was gonna have a good time. Nothing was gonna stop me.


Zayn POV

I glanced around the makeshift dance floor as I felt my drink slip smoothly down my throat. "Aye Zayn, how bout we find some fit girls to dance with?" Harry asked me as he finished the last part of his beer.

"Alright, how bout we make this interesting?" I asked with a sly grin on my face. "How?" Harry asked curiously. "Who ever doesn't gets a girl to dance with him and gets her number has to do something for the winner, which is obviously me. I'm irresistible." I smirked. Harry scoffed. "Your on Malik. Lets meet at about 11:30pm with the girl and the number. Best man wins." I laughed. "In your case, best boy Styles." I gave Harry a light slap on his cheek and turned around in the crowd to find a decent girl.

This was to easy.


Sophia POV

"Omg, your amazing out there Sop! You never told me you danced like that!" I could feel people stare at me from multiple angles as she continued to go off. "Angel, it was nothing." I nervously laughed. "Alright I'll stop bragging about my amazing dancer friend." She shouted over the bass. I just rolled my eyes.

"So, how bout those things you wanted to do now that you not afraid anymore?" Angel said as she put air quotes around "not afraid". I bit my lip. "Well, I wanted to dance with someone-" I paused for a second. "other then you." Angel put her hand over her heart pretending like what I said hurt her.

"Ouch Sop, when did you turn into a heartless bitch?" She joked but gave me a serious look. I sometimes can't tell if she's being serious or not. "Babe I'm joking." I told her as I poked her cheek. She quickly swatted my hand away.

"Yeah, yeah. Anyways, what else is on your bucket list?" She asked as she hip checked me. After I found my balance I turned to her. I was about to tell her the next task, when I caught some staring at me. He looked oddly familiar, but I couldn't seem to get the right person in my head. "Sophia? Hello?." I turned to Angel shaking me. "Huh?" I asked. I tried to keep my gaze on the boy but he suddenly disappeared.

"Are you alright? You totally just dazed off for a second." She said as she gave me an annoyed look. "Sorry. Thought I saw someone familiar. It was nothing though." I said trying to change the subject. "Um okay? So how bout I get us some drinks. You just stay right here." Angel walked off towards the bar, leaving me alone.


Zayn POV

As I walked across the dance floor, I noticed a girl with dark pin straight hair. Her eyes were light hazel, and she had a smile that could kill. I instantly knew she was the one. She was standing beside another girl.

They were laughing and I watched as she threw her head back at something her friend said to her. I suddenly had an urge to go right up to her and kiss her, even though that would be quite awkward. I chewed on my lip as I stared at her. I don't know why I haven't already walked up to her and made my move. Suddenly she caught me staring, and she froze. I let my head fall as I walked into step, still keeping my gaze on her. I watched as her friend tried to get her attention then soon, she left.

This was my chance.


Sophia POV

I bopped my head as one of my favorite Rihanna songs belting out from the huge speakers.

You'll always be mine, sing it to the world Always be my boy, i'll always be your girl Nobody's business, ain't nobody's business Ain't nobody's business, but mine, and my baby

I bit my lip as I felt a breeze swoop past me, as it let shivers crawl up my spine. I let my eyes land back on the makeshift dance floor. I watched as couples gyrated to the beat. They looked like they were having so much fun.

Me and you, get it? Ain't nobody's business Said it, ain't nobody's business

I looked around for Angel. I doubt she even got to the bar. Some guy probably swopped her off her feet, leaving me here alone. I was about to walk to the bar just to make sure that Angel wasn't just held up in the line up, when I crashed into a very hard chest. I let my gaze land on who ever just bashed into me to see it was the same guy that was staring at me moments before. But then it hit me. It wasn't just some guy. It wasn't just some ordinary tool. It was Zayn Malik, from One Direction.


Zayn POV

I braced myself for what might come out of the girls mouth. I accidentally bashed into her to get her to notice me but she feel right on her ass. Oops. I tried to keep myself from laughing but it was really hard. She gave me a disgusted look and got herself up.

"Thanks for pushing me on the ground you twat." She sneered at me. For a moment, I thought she was just joking, until I saw how serious her face turned. "I'm sorry, how bout I make it up to you-?" I trailed off because I didn't know her name. "Sophia." She mumbled under her breath. "Sophia." I smiled. "What a beautiful name." I said as I turned the Malik charm on.

She instantly looked up. "Beautiful? Your kidding right?" She scoffed. I furrowed my eyebrows. "Why not? Your actually stunning." I said as I took a step towards her. "Thanks, but how do I know your not just saying that? You are from One Direction. And its your job to make girls feel better about themselves." I chewed on my lip. "How bout I show you how beautiful you are?" I said as I pulled her onto the dance floor.


Sophia POV

Your love is perfection, please point me in the right direction I'mma give you all my affection Every touch becomes infectious Let's make out in this Lexus There's no other love just like this A life with you I want, then can we become love's persona

I let Rihanna voice go through my body as Zayn pulled me further onto the crowded dance floor. "C'mon you'll have fun, trust me." Zayn said as he turned around to face.

I felt him grab my hips and turn me around, so my back was facing him. I sorta froze. I had no clue what to do. I felt Zayn's hot breath against my neck. "Dance to the rhythm beautiful." Zayn instructed. I started to move my hips along with Zayn's.

Let's sing it to the world Baby give me time I'mma be your girl I wanna make you mine

Zayn turned me around in his grip. "You see, your not that bad." I watched as Zayn's eye contact left my eyes and landed on my lips. I gulp. "Y-ou wanna get something to drink?" I asked. I needed to distract him. I couldn't kiss him. Zayn sighed and nodded his head.

Lacing his fingers through mine, Zayn pulled me through the dance floor over to the bar. Once we got to the bar, I ordered a coke, and Zayn got the same. It was pretty silent until Zayn finally turned to me.

"I was wondering if you wanted to on a walk along the trail?" Zayn asked me as he pointed to the dark forest. I gulped. I was never really fond of forest trails. They always creeped me out. "...Um okay." I hesitantly let Zayn pull me through the crowd again towards the trail.

As we got deeper into the forest, I noticed how quite it was. The music from the party was slowly dying down. I pulled my phone out of my pocket and noticed that I hand no service. I started to nervously chew my lip. What if Zayn was an undercover killer, disguised as a cute boy from a British band? What if his job was to kill all girls who were ugly?

"So...what's it like being in One Direction?" I asked nervously. "It's fun." Zayn simply said. I nervously laughed. "Oh."

Zayn suddenly stopped, making me crash into his backside. "Oops...sorry." I chuckled. I don't know why this whole situation was funny. I was kinda afraid. Zayn bit his bottom lip as he stared at me. "Why are you staring at me like that?" I asked, but soon regretted it. Zayn smirked. "Because, your cute when you nervous." I felt my cheeks heat up.

I watched as Zayn pushed my bangs out of my eyes. I felt my breath hitch up in my throat. "Your nervous right?" Zayn said as he stepped closer. I shook my head quickly. I watched as Zayn interlocked our hands. I don't know, but in that moment, all my insecurities flew out the window. "Your not a killer or anything right?" I asked in a jokingly manner. Zayn narrowed his eyes. "You never know beautiful."

"When will you stop calling me that?" I groaned. Zayn just smiled at me sweetly. "Let me kiss you and I'll stop." I furrowed my eyebrows. "Wait-what? I-" Zayn never let me finish my sentence. His lips were so soft. I never wanted it to end. Zayn finally pulled away. I looked up like I was in some kind of trance.

"Wow." I whispered. Zayn laughed. "You kissed me. I-wait. Is this some kinda of set up?"


Zayn POV

I bit my tongue hard. What was I supposed to tell her? That Harry and I have this bet, so yes this is technically a setup? I can't tell her the truth.

"Um not at all. I like you Sophia." I smiled. I watched as her eyes widened. "Wait-what? You like me?" I rolled my eyes and leaned in again to kiss her soft pink lips. "Does that answer your question?" She nodded weakly.

"C'mon, let's get back to the party."


I continuously dragged Sophia around the party trying to find Harry. I glanced down at my watch, which read 11:26pm. I finally spotted Harry standing at our meeting place with a blonde haired girl. Typical.

"Aye Harry!" I called. Harry turned and wave me over. "Did you find one?"" He asked with a smirk. "Of course! She right here..." I let my sentence trail off when I noticed that Sophia wasn't behind me anymore.

"What-wait? Where'd she go?" I frantically said. She was here with me like two seconds ago. I was even holding her hand. "Yeah right." Harry laughed out. "Told you. Your not always Mr. Irresistible." I rolled my eyes. I looked down at my watch which read 11:28pm. I still had two minutes until the bet ended. "Hold up Haz, I still have two minutes till the bets over. Don't think you'll win." I said as I ran off into the crowd of people.


Sophia POV

One second I'm being dragged through the party by Zayn, then the next I'm standing alone not knowing where the hell he went. I didn't know if I should've just stayed put, or just tried to find my way back. All I knew was that I wasn't gonna just stand there because there was a couple of creepy people around me.

I nervously pushed through crowds of people, trying to spot Angel or Zayn. I was starting to let my nerves get the best of me when I realize that I was totally lost. I took a couple deep breaths, but it didn't work. I continued to walk further into the party, when I noticed a girl with long brown hair. Angel.

I darted across the party and spun her around. "Sop! I've been looking for you everywhere!" She screamed over the music. "Sorry, I was actually with a guy." When I said that Angels eyes widened.

"Wait-what? A guy? With you?" She shrieked. I laughed. "You'll never guess who." I smiled. "Who?" She said as she gave me puppy dog eyes. "How bout I show you?" I didn't wait for a reply as I dragged Angel in search for Zayn.
