14. Promise

Zayn POV 

I held a sleeping Sophia in my arms. It's around 6:30am and I haven't slept at all. I think that's bad for my concussion, but whatever. I have more important things to think about. Like why Sophia started crying for no reason. There probably is a reason, but it's not like she would tell me. After I begged her to tell me, I decided it was best to leave it alone. 

I looked down and noticed how adorable Sophia looked when she was sleeping. Her nose would scrunch up with little wrinkles and eyebrows would be furrowed. It looked like she was in a deep thought. 

Sophia suddenly slurred in her sleep, her grip around my waste tightening a bit. "I know you didn't sleep." She mumbled into chest, her words sending vibrations through my body. 

"I slept, a little." I spoke as I stroked her hair. One of her eyes opened. "Zayn, your not good at lying. The doctor said you needed at least five hours of sleep." She pulled my arms away from her as she stretched her limbs, a soft yawn escaping her lips. 

"Alright, I didn't sleep last night, but it was only because I was worried about you. You cried yourself to sleep and I don't even know why." I pulled her close so she was on my lap. I rest my head in the crook of her neck. Her arms aimlessly fell around my waist. "I can't stop worrying about you." I whispered. 

She pulled away looking into my eyes. She had this look in the hazel orbs, it was something that I've never seen before, something I've never seen on her. 

"I'm okay Zayn. Really." She pressed her lips firmly onto mine. I guess you could say that the kissed fixed all my worries, but it didn't. I still had that feeling in the pit of my stomach as I pulled away from her soft lips. 

"Promise?" I stuck my pinky finger out. She laughed as she wrapped hers around mine. "Promise."

Sophia POV 

I looked at our pinkies wrapped as one. I felt my stomach churn and twist for lying to Zayn because I'm not okay. I know I cried myself to sleep and I know that Zayn knows I'm lying. 

"Are you gonna tell me what happened?" He asked looking down on me. I shook my head no. I let my head fall when I heard a frustrated sigh escape Zayn's lips. 

I felt Zayn's finger hook under my chin forcing me to look up into his eyes. "Alright, just tell me when your ready, okay? I'm always here for you remember." I nodded my head and felt Zayn's lips come in contact with my head, staying like that for a couple seconds. 

Zayn jumped out off the bed and over to his suitcase pulling articles of clothing out. "Are you going somewhere?" I asked as I lay back down not to interested in the conversation and more interested in sleep. "Yeah, just getting something's done." I furrowed my eyebrows. "What exactly?" I asked this time more interested.

"That's for me to know and you to not find out, well until later that is." He slipped on a hoodie and some jeans. 

"Zayn!" I whined. He turned around with a smirk on his face. "Yes?" He asked as he stood in front of me, his legs on either side of mine. "Tell me please?" I begged. "I'll do anything." Zayn raised a brow. "Anything?" He questioned. 

I nodded my head. "Anything." I pulled Zayn closer giving him my best puppy dog eyes. He climbed on top of me, straddling my waist. 

"Anything?" He breathed once again, his lips inches away from mine. "Anything." I confirmed. Zayn leaned in pressing his lips to mine kissing me softly.

"Nah!" He said as he broke the kiss."This is to good of a secret to spoil." He pulled away chuckling. A frown appeared on my face. 

"Turn that frown upside baby, your making me feel bad." Zayn laughed. I sighed and stood and put my hands on my hips. "So what I'm getting here, is that your not gonna tell me?" I questioned. Zayn nodded his head. 

"Fine. This better be a good surprise." I grumbled. Zayn wrapped his arms around my waist in a hug from behind. "You know you love me." He said in a raspy tone, sending chills up my spine. 

"Yeah, yeah." I pulled away walking into the washroom and doing my daily routine. 

I walked out of the steamy washroom with a towel wrapped around my body, to see Zayn had already left. I looked on the bed to see a note. 

Sorry I didn't say goodbye when I left, but I had to run. Love you lots baby.


I smiled as I reread the note. 

I got dressed and walked out to the living room to see everyone watching TV. My eyes locked with Niall's and he waved me over. I sat down beside him. 

I eyed Angel from across the room as I settled down in my seat. I felt Niall's arm wrap over my shoulder pulling me close. "You alright?" He whispered into my ear. I turned to him. "Yeah, I'm fine." I mumbled. 

I sat bored for a couple minutes until Niall taped my thigh. "Lets get out of here." He whispered into my ear. He stood up and grabbed my hand lifting me up. "Where?" I questioned as I grabbed my Toms. Niall slipped on his Converse and opened the door for me. 

"I don't know. Lets just walk around and then we can get some lunch or something." 

We walked aimlessly around the city, laughing at anything and everything. Niall pulled me into a shop that had costumes. "Niall, why are we in here?" I giggled. Niall just shrugged. 

"Okay, I'll find a costume for you and you have to wear it, and you do the same for me." Niall explained. I nodded my head as I walked around the creepy shop. After looking for awhile, I found Niall a cute monkey suit with a blazer and top hat. 

"Niall?" I called walking back to the front of the store. I saw Niall holding at least three different outfits. 

"I thought you only said one?" I whined as I traded his costume for mine. 

"Oh well just pick the one you like the most. I couldn't choose."

We walked over to the changing rooms and we stepped into our own. I looked at the first one and laughed at Niall's choice. I looked at the disco one and bit my lip. Then I saw the last one which looked like Pocahontas. I smiled and slipped it on. 

"Sophia you done in there?" Niall called through the curtain. I finished braiding my hair and stepped out. 

"What do you think?" I smiled shyly. Niall's jaw dropped. "You look great." he smiled. I looked at him in his monkey costume. 

"Aw, you look so cute." I grabbed him and took a couple pictures. 

"Nice choices." The sales lady said. "You guys are such a cute couple." She smiled and walked away. I looked at Niall and he just shrugged.

We ended up buying the costumes, well Niall didn't let me buy mine. After we got some lunch, again Niall buying it for me, and we walked back to the hotel. "Thanks for cheering me up Niall. Your a great friend." I pulled him into a hug. I felt his arms wrap around my waist. "No problem." I gave Niall a quick peck on the cheek. 


I nervously looked at my reflection. I let my hair fall in its natural curls, and I was wearing a dark green strapless dress that I found sitting on my bed with a pair of black opened toe shoes. There was a note attached to the dress saying that I should be ready by 7. 

I looked behind me to see Zayn leaned against the doorframe. He had a wide grin across his lips. He stood behind me, wrapping his arms around my waist, resting his chin on my shoulder. 

"You look beautiful." He mumbled as he looked at our reflections. I felt my cheeks flush as I let my bangs fall over my eyes. 

"Really, you look fantastic." He mumbled into my ear, his hot breath tickling my neck in the process. I turned around in his grip smiling. I noticed Zayn was wearing a black fitted dress shirt that was rolled up on the sleeves. He was also wearing black chinos. He looked so cute. 

"You." I spoke as I poked his cheek. "Look fantastic." I mimicked looking into his eyes. Zayn grinned and pressed his lips to mine. 

"Now." I said as I pulled away. "Why am I dressed up?" I rested my head on his chest. A wave of laughter erupted from Zayn's mouth sending vibrations through my body. 

"It's a surprise remember?" He kissed my cheek and started to pull me out of the room. 

"See you guys later." Zayn called as we passed the boys in the living room. I waved to them, and they waved back, except Niall. I shrugged as I stepped out of the room into the hallway. 

Zayn lead me through the back of the hotel to a range rover. He opened the door for me and I quietly thanked him. He got to the front seat and started the car.

As we drove around the city, I started to get a little impatient. "Babe, how much longer?" I whined. Zayn chuckled as he pecked my cheek. "We're almost there, don't worry." 

We finally pulled up to a deserted restaurant. I raised a brow at Zayn and he just gave me a cheeky grin. 

We walked in, hand in hand. I looked around. There was only one table set up. "Did you rent out this place or something?" I asked as we neared the table. "Something like that." 

Zayn pulled out my chair for me and I sat down. "Y'know staying at the hotel with you and just watching a movie would make me happy. Being with you is what I want." 

Zayn smiled. "I know, but tonight's special, and we haven't gone on a real date before." 

The waiter came over and handed us the menus. Zayn and I decided to share a plate of paste like in those cheesy romantic movies. 

So while we waited for our food, we talked about anything really. 

"Y'know, when I was in the hospital and my memory came back, I forgot that I even lost it. I don't know what happened in the time I lost my memory at all." I looked up into Zayn's sorrow filled eyes. I grabbed his hand across the table and squeezed it. 

"It's alright, I'm just so happy your back." I smiled weakly. Zayn nodded his head. 

The food came out and we dug in. Zayn kept trying to get the same string of spaghetti so we could kiss, but it always broke.

"Alright. This is not working." He said as he put his fork down. He grabbed a string of spaghetti and put it in his mouth. "Grab the other end!" He said swinging it around. I started hysterically laughing at how he looked. 

"Zayn...I can't! You look crazy!" I said through my giggles. Zayn started to laugh, but he pulled me out of my chair, making me stand in front of him, spaghetti string still dangling from his mouth. 

"C'mon just do it for me." He begged me. I let out a sigh as I grabbed the other end of the spaghetti and put it in my mouth. Zayn and I started to slurp the pasta up until our chest were pressed together. I felt his arms wrap around my waist as we got closer. Once our lips were an inch apart, the spaghetti string snapped. 

"Shit." Zayn swore under his breath as he finished the pasta in his mouth. 

"I think I still deserve a kiss after all that hard work." He mumbled. I rolled my eyes as I pulled him close to me. "Shut up and kiss me." I mumbled against his lips. I felt our lips move in sync as Zayn wrapped his arms around my waist, mine resting on his shoulders, my hands playing with the hair at the nape of his neck. 

Zayn pulled away leaving me frowning. "I'm so happy everything is working between us." I rest my head on his shoulder as he rocked us back and forth. "You mean so much to me, and I want to take this relationship to the next level." I looked at Zayn in confusion. 

He pulled away from me and pulled a small velvet box from is pants pocket. My eyes widened. "Your not asking me to marry you, are you?" I asked shock. 

Zayn laughed as he pulled me close again. I felt his soft lips kiss my cheek, his hot breath comforting me. 

"No, but I would love to in the future if your up to a crazy life with me." He pressed his lips to my forehead. I looked back down to the velvet box that Zayn was clutching in his hands. He noticed me staring and handed it to me. "Open it." He whispered into my ear, sending chills through me. 

I slowly opened the box to see a beautiful diamond ring. "It's a promise ring." He said pulling it out and placing in my hand. "Zayn..." I trailed off. 

"No let me finish." I nodded my head as I shared down at the beautiful ring not taking my eyes off once. "It's my promise to you, to never hurt you, cheat on you, to always be by your side. I'm not going anywhere, and I promise you that I'll love you for as long as I live. Nothing can tear us apart." I could feel tears to build up at the corners of my eyes. 

"Zayn it's beautiful, thank you." He smiled and wiped the tear that I hadn't noticed fall down my face. "Your beautiful, more then I can explain. I wanna make this relationship work as best as to my abilities so I'm gonna do anything I can to make you happy." 

"Thank you. I don't know what to say."
