15. Chapter 15

Zayn POV • I woke up to an empty feeling on my chest. Skyler was gone. Where did she go? I looked around the room and Harry and Kathryn were making out. "Can you guys at least get a room?" I sneered at them and got up. They didn't even look up. I hate that girl. She uses Harry. I see her flirting with other guys- flirting with me actually. She's such a slut. I walked over to the guest bedroom and looked in. Skyler's bag was gone too. I walked back into the living room to find Kathryn and Harry had taken a break. "Where's Skyler?" I asked. "Who?" "The girl that was staying with us. She's gone" I said. They gave me a questioning look. I went and got dressed then decided to go to Starbucks. When I walked in, I noticed her right away. Skyler was sitting in the corner of the room with her coffee. She was looking down. I walked over to her slowly. "Hey" I whispered, sitting across from her. She looked up and smiled at me. That cute smile. I never saw that smile the first time I met her. A beautiful smile. "Hi..." she mumbled. "Why'd you leave?" I asked. "I don't know... I shouldn't be there.." she whispered. "There's never a place where someone shouldn't be" I said causing her to smile even more. "Do you want to hang out today? You can come back to the flat and take a shower and stuff... Then we could go out to lunch?" I offered. "Yeah... I'd like that" she said and gave me a little smile.
Skyler and I spent the whole day together. It's like if we left each others side, we would be lonely. If she smiled, I smiled. If I was hungry, she would eat too. It's like we were the same person, but different in many ways. She seems like one of those girls that try's not to talk to anyone- she is. But she talked to me. She trusted me like I was the only one she could speak to. She's so much different then I thought she would be- in a good way. She's very self conscious though. She refused to take off her sweatshirt or change out of her skinny jeans and TOMS. She tells me nothing is worth showing the world her scars. Her bruises. Her cuts. Everything. Every time she put her hood up and looked down, ashamed of herself, I would push it off her head and tell her she's beautiful. Because she is. She is the most beautiful girl in the world. She might disagree with me but I'll always tell her that. I guess you could say I took her mind off things, she didn't bring up anything about her parents, those boys at her school, or being alone. But she's not alone. She has me. I'm here for her. So is her brother, Jacob, wherever he is right now. I know what your thinking, oh Zayn you soooo like her! Yes. I like her as a friend. Nothing more. She is a great friend and I can trust her just like I can trust Louis. She's just what I wanted. Just what I needed. A friend to be there for me no matter what, and a friend that doesn't judge me. She sees the real me. Not the celebrity me. She hasn't even brought up One Direction. I know she's a fan. Could she of forgotten? We've been having such a good time- she probably doesn't even remember. I hope.
"So pretty... I love stars.. They're always happy" Skyler points out positively, then laughs to herself. We were laying on a blanket in the grass in the park, looking up at the stars. I had my arm around her, like always, and she rested her head on my shoulder, cuddling up against my side. I liked being here. With Skyler. She made all bad thoughts disappear. "I just can't sleep tonight" I sang to Skyler quietly into her ear smiling. She had mentioned liking Justin Bieber. I don't know why I remember that or why I know this song but I do. 'Pray' is her favorite song by him. "Knowing that things ain't right.
It's in the papers, it's on the TV, it's everywhere that I go.
Children are crying.
Soldiers are dying
Some people don't have a home" I sang and looked down into her eyes. They sparkled in the moonlight and she smiled at me. "But I know there's sunshine beyond that rain" she sang in her beautiful voice smiling at me. "I know there's good times behind that pain" I sang back to her. "Hey, can you tell me how I can make a change?" she sang quietly. Her voice is perfect. "I close my eyes and I can see a better day" we sang together. "I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray" we finished the chorus together. Not just her voice made it perfect. It was our voices together. They didn't sound the same for sure, but they matched. Her soft and quiet voice with my deeper voice just sounded-- right.
"Your voice is beautiful" I complimented her. She turned her head and looked up at me smiling. "Yours is better" she insisted. "Trust me... Your voice is flawless, like you should be the famous one here" I joked. She laughed a little and closed her eyes as she rested up against me. "Today was fun" she whispered. "We should do it again. Tomorrow?" I joke but really I would love to do this tomorrow. I would love to do this every day. "Whenever you want" she whispered and opened her eyes again. "Are you cold?" she asked. "Not really..." I mumbled. Her laying so close to me was keeping me warm, I guess you could say. "Are you?" I asked. "No" she said happily and closed her eyes again. I just want to stay in this spot forever. With Skyler. She looked so happy. Nothing like the first couple times I met her. She actually had a smile spread across her face. A cute smile. "Hey! Get out of here! You kids can't be here this late!" I heard someone scream. Skyler looked up and we glanced around. There was a man standing about ten yards away from us. "Let's go" I suggested and chuckled. She smiled in agreement and sat up. We got up off the blanket and walked back to my apartment.
