"Niall?" He's pacing the floor pulling at his hair, I go to grab his hand and he stops looking at me. "Don't tell my parents, please?" He gives me a weird look and glances away.
"Well, of course I'm going to have to tell them. What kind of friend would I be if I didn't?"
"A great one." He grabbed my hand and pulled me into a hug. I was on the verge of tears.To much stuff had happened tonight and I didn't want to have to be put through all these procedures and for my parents to not trust me. I was shaking.
"Bry. You know I love you but he can't get away with this."
"Nothing happened! Niall nothing happened!"
"Something did happen. You almost..."
"The guy is in my house bruised up. What am I supposed to say? I kicked the guys ass because.. he looked at me funny?"I broke down crying and sat on the porch. Everyone was sent home and the only people that were here was me Niall, Zayn, Layla, and Harry. I didn't want Niall to get in trouble, I didn't want any of them to get in trouble, but I didn't either. Niall was such a good guy and I knew he just wanted to do the right thing as usual but..Just not this time. He squatted in front of me cupping my hand in his. He wiped my tears and kissed my cheek.
"Stop crying. Fine I won't tell. But you have to promise me one thing?"
"Never go into a bedroom alone with a guy... And you have to listen to me next time."
"Okay, I will." He helped my up.
"Dry those tears, I gotta take you home." I wiped my face and walked behind him as he went inside. Zayn was just coming out of the kitchen, the front of his shirt had a little bit of blood on it from Zach's face. He looked at me.
"When are the cops going to be here?" He said wiping his hand on a towel.
"Cause I promised Bry that I wouldn't."
"What? After what he just did to you..?"
"Zayn..." Niall said trying to make him at least try to see where I was coming from. He threw the towel down and went outside, going around us. I looked at Niall and he shrugged. I went after him pulling him around.
"Stop! I don't want to hear it.."
"Hear what..? I thought you were my friend?"
"Then why are you treating me like this?"
"Cause your just going to let that perv in there go. So he can do what he tried to do to you to some poor innocent young girl. How can you do that?"
"I don't want to, but I don't have a choice."
"You have a choice, you just choose to pick the wrong way."
"Why do you care so much!"
"He hurt you, your my friend that's why!"
"No your not! Just when I thought I knew you! I know your sweet and all but do you really have to let him go! Do you?" He cuts me off when I go to speak. "No you don't! So why have someone treat you like this and go back and sugar coat it? I don't understand you!"
"Zayn, I just...I don't know what..." I start to cry running my fingers through my hair.
"Go do what your gonna do."
"Do you hate me?" I say after a moment of us just standing there. He looks at me shaking his head.
"Of course I don't hate you. I just hate the decision your making. Your always be my friends and I'll always love you, no matter what, but I can't sit here and watch this." He gives me a hug and hops in his jeep and pulls away. I stand there until I hear someone call my name then I automatically follow the trail of the voices to Niall and Layla standing around.
"How did everything go?" Niall says. They both look at me biting their lips.
"Fine." I say with a slight smile.
"Well that's good." Layla says, knowing that I'm obviously lying. She looks at Niall then over a me. "Ready to go?"
"Yeah." We go out back to his car and pile in. No one talks the whole ride there, the only sound is the constant tapping of Niall's fingers on the steering wheel, and my pounding heart. I don't want Zayn to hate me, I don't want him to think of me as a horrible person. I know going to the police is the best thing to do right now and not going is going to make me look like a selfish person but...I can't. He pulls up in front of my house and we both hop out, I go over to the drivers side window and give Niall a kiss on the cheek. "Thanks. For everything."
"No problem." I say goodnight to Layla and go home.My mom, dad, and little sister are sitting in the living-room watching a Disney movie that I can't recognized right away. They look at me smiling.
"Oh.." My mom says, I stop giving her the biggest smile I can give her."Zayn was just over here. You missed him. You two fighting?"
"No. Why? What did he say?" I say super scared and eager.
"Nothing, he just said that he was sorry for earlier, and to not mind what he said. That he was an asshole." She looks at me suspicious."What happened?"
"Nothing we just yelled at each other."
"Play nice." She said."You want to watch this movie with us?" I shake my head.
"I'm really tired but tomorrow definitely. I haven't seen dad in a while so...gotta do that." I say tearing up.
"Are you okay?" They all turn.
"Just miss dad." I rush upstairs and blast some music and fall asleep.
