13. Chapter 13

Skyler POV • The sun was down and I was left outside alone in the dark. What am I supposed to do? Sleep on a bench? In the streets? In an ally? What did my parents expect to happen to me when the kicked me out? I ended up in the park. I don't know why but my feet always take me there. No matter how many bad experiences I've had here, it's like a home to me. I walked over to a big tree and sat under the branches. I had my hoodie on now so I'm not AS cold, but it's still freezing out. The lights turned on and started to shine towards a big field. I pulled my knees up to my chest and rested my head on my knees. Gosh I'm so tired. The wind picked up and I started shaking. Why do I have to go through this? Why do I have to go through life? It's not worth it... Nothing is worth it. The only reason I'm here is for Jacob. If something were ever to happen to him, I would give up. There wouldn't be a purpose in life anymore. I group of people ran onto the field laughing and screaming. I didn't even bother to look up though.
"Why me...What did I do?" I sang quietly to myself. "I don't understand..." "Why me...I don't deserve this..." the singing became more of a whisper. "Could it be any worse?" "There's that one reason....that keeps me going... That one reason... It's gone..." I sang faintly. "Why can't you come back? I need you now..."
"I'm lost. I'm broke. I'm in pain. Don't you know? I can see it in your eyes. I can see that pure evil. I can see someone I used to love" I sang then stopped as I felt like someone was watching me. I looked up and saw Zayn. "Do you stalk me or something?" I asked. "I heard you singing..." he stated happily, then walked over and sat next to me leaning back on the tree. "Mhmm..." I hummed. "I thought you said you had a place to stay?" he asked worried. "You don't need to worry about me.." I mumbled. "But I want to" he whispered.
Zayn POV • "You shouldn't want to... I'm a waste of time" she stated. I looked over at her in shock. She was staring at me upset and confused. She was so beautiful. Her blue eyes sparkled every time she moved an inch. Her hair fell perfectly over her shoulders. Her cheek bones were adorable. Her nose was so cute. There was only one bad thing about her appearance. Her smile. There wasn't one. Her lips curved down as it looked like she had never smiled her whole life. She breathed in and out slowly. A little cloud of fog showing up every time as her warm breath entered the freezing air. Her cheeks were bright pink. She looked freezing. I held up my hand and rested the back of it on her cheek and frowned. She WAS freezing. "Your so cold..." I stated upset. "I can get used to it" she rebelled. I wrapped my arms around her and pulled her in so she could rest her head on my shoulder. She gratefully accepted as I hugged her, trying to warm her freezing body. Skyler rested her head on my shoulder and I smiled at the touch. We remained silent for what seemed like an hour before she spoke up. "Why are you doing this?" she asked. "I want to" I stated happily. She didn't say anything. I kept my arms wrapped around her freezing body and pulled her closer. "Can you tell me what happened? About back there.. About you?" I asked her politely. "It's ok if you don't want to tell me.... Maybe I could help?" I added. We sat there for about a half an hour. She explained to me her life. Her brother, her parents, those two guys from her school, what has happened over the years. Beatings, bullying, not having much food. I let her cry on my shoulder as she let it out. "What did you do about it?" I asked. She didn't respond immediately. "Uh..." She started but stopped. "I stopped eating. I thought I was bullied because I was fat...so I gave up food. When that didn't work, I started cutting" she paused. "I blamed myself. I blamed myself for this horrible life I have to go through" she said trying to hold back the tears. "Do you still--?" I started but didn't want to finish. "Every once and awhile..." she whispered.
"Zayn we're leaving! Come on!" Harry yelled at me. He stood in the middle of the field with Kathryn, his girlfriend, attached to his hip, as always. "Thanks... For being here for me.... It felt good to just tell someone..." she whispered and leaned off of me. I became cold immediately as she leaned off of me. She had been keeping my whole side warm. I miss her warmth. She laid down on the grass, resting her head on a small duffle bag and shut her eyes. Is she sleeping here? "Um... I don't wanna leave you out here... Alone.." I mumbled. "Goodnight" she said ignoring my comment. She looked helpless. Why is she acting so cool about this? Sleeping outside? No. She acts like she's been like this her whole life. She has had a bad life but now she's homeless? That's horrible. "Skyler...?" I mumbled. She opened her eyes and looked up at me. "You know... You could stay with us.. There's a spare room at mine and the rest of the boy's flat" I offered. "Uh..." she hesitated. "Please, I don't want you out here" I begged. She hesitated with her answer, but finally smiled and accepted the offer.
