They Don't Know About Us [SEMI HIATUS]

He wants her just as much as she wants him. The only problem? He can't be seen with her.



6. Chapter Five

A/N: Sorry for updating so late, summers here so I'll update about 1-2 time a week (: Enjoy this chapter and let me know what you think in the comments!


Alyssa’s POV

Every time the classroom door would open my eyes would dart towards it. Where was Louis anyway? I had left him last night, after the little incident. After he told me he loved me. It was weird to hear that from him, we said as friends, playfully though. Never ever, was it said seriously like how Louis said it yesterday.

I kept telling myself he was drunk, and that it didn’t matter but it still didn’t stop me from thinking about it. All night, I tossed and turned thinking about those three words he had said to me. But Alyssa he was drunk.  Doesn’t being drunk mean that you say things you’re not supposed to?

I felt a kick against my chair and looked up to find Zayn staring down at me. His warm eyes met mine and I looked away quickly trying to avoid them. Every scene we did together was tough for me, I couldn’t look him in the eyes, he made me nervous. “Ninchie wants us to practise the balcony scene.” Our eyes met again and this time he smiled.

“Oh, okay.” My voice wasn’t as steady as I tried to make it. Gosh what had gotten into me.  As I got up my foot got caught behind the leg of my chair and I fell to the ground with a thud. Smooth Alyssa.

I immediately felt Zayn’s arms grab me around my waist and pull me up, “Whoa, you okay there?” He asked, trying to hide his smirk. I nodded and tried to stand up straighter but noticed his hands still around my waist. “Oh.” His cheeks flushed and he let go stuffing his hands in his pockets.

“Thanks.” I mumbled brushing myself off. When I turned around the whole class was staring at the two of us, and no one was speaking. Well this was a good way embarrass myself wasn’t it?  

“Okay Mr. Malik and Ms.Blake let’s try the balcony scene, shall we?” She raised her hands in a questioning manner and Zayn and I both nodded. “Okay Zayn, you’ll be offstage back in the corner, Alyssa come with me.” Zayn walked to the other side as Ms.Ninchie brought me to a marked off area. “For now we’ll act like this is the balcony, okay?” I nodded and took my place.

Ms.Ninchie made her way to the top of the stairs looking down at the stage, “Enter Romeo!” She bellowed from the top, her voice bouncing off the walls of the large room.

Zayn made his way into the centre of the stage hiding behind the marked off bush as I did my movements. His acting was actually wonderful, the way he seemed so admiring of everything I did was just spot on. “Ay Me!” I spoke laying the back of my hand on my forehead.

“She speaks: O, speak again, bright angel! for thou art as glorious to this night, being o'er my head as is a winged messenger of heaven unto the white-upturned wondering eyes of mortals that fall back to gaze on him when he bestrides the lazy-pacing clouds and sails upon the bosom of the air.” Zayn spoke softly, his eyes on me.

I took a deep breath trying to keep my composure, “O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name; Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I'll no longer be a Capulet” I glanced towards Zayn for a second and found him smiling at me.

“Well that was absolutely wonderful!” Ms. Ninchie sing-songed as she walked down the steps, clapping her hands. “But we have to work on a few things.” She motioned for Zayn and I to come towards her and we did.

Zayn gave me another smile and I couldn’t help but smiling back at him. “You two have this chemistry I have never seen in a class like this before, I feel like everyone is going to fall in love with you two.” She spoke staring up at the ceiling as if she was imagining some type of scene playing between us. “We need to work on this” She motioned to the empty space between Zayn and I, “We need to build up this chemistry.” I could feel my cheeks burning and by the way Zayn kept shifting from foot to foot I could tell this conversation was making him uncomfortable too.

Just then the bell rang for lunch saving us any more of this humiliation. “I’ll see you all tomorrow!” Ninchie called as we all rushed out of the door way, “And Zayn and Alyssa!” We both stopped to turn back towards her, “Work on those lines, you guys have got me excited for this year’s play.” She smiled a genuine smile and I couldn’t help but smile back.

Louis’ POV

“What do you mean she isn’t home?” I asked confused. Alyssa always came home for lunch on Fridays.

“Sorry Lou, she needed to practise some of her lines for the play so she stayed at school today.” Her mom shrugged and smiled. 

I nodded and said goodbye before turning away. This was so weird. I couldn’t remember anything from last night, except that I was drunk and barfed all over Alyssa, that part I remember clearly. But then I passed out, and nothing came to mind after that.

Alyssa was avoiding me. I could feel it. She would have texted me in the morning, she always did saying hello or good morning. She would smile at me in the halls too, but I never saw her in the halls today. It was like she made sure to get to class before I even entered the halls. And now this, we spent many Friday lunches together at her house, why wouldn’t she tell me she was staying after school?

I needed to get out and just enjoy the night. I needed some girl I could hook up with just for the fun of it. I pulled out my phone and began searching through my contacts and stopped once I saw Cassidy’s name.

“Look Lou, I know we’re not going to work out, but call me up if you ever want to hook up for the fun of it, yeah?” She spoke before leaving a kiss on my cheek.

I clicked her contact name and watched her number glow on my screen, “Hello?” She answered.

“Cass, it’s me Lou, you free tonight?”

Zayn's POV 

I watched as Alyssa carefully turned the dial on her lock to match the correct combination, then flip her long brown hair over her shoulder as the lock clicked open. As usual, she placed a textbook on the top shelf, and grabbed the remaining notebooks, stuffing them in her bag. She took a look at herself in her little mirror, fixed her hair, smiled then slammed the locker door. 

I quickly piled my books into my backpack and placed it on the floor to zip it up. Whenever I was in a rush, the zipper would get stuck, as it did today. Fantastic. I glanced back making sure Alyssa hadn't left yet. Thankfully she hadn't, I could see her petite figure walking towards the exit door. "Screw it." I mumbled leaving the stuck zipper as it was and slamming my locker door shut, slowly jogging up behind Alyssa. 

"Zayn!" I heard someone call, I turned around as Harry came running up to me. "Hey." He smiled slowing down. I gave him a smile not really wanting to start conversation. I had somewhere I needed to be. "We're still on for the movies tonight right?" He asked with a hopeful smile. 

"Yeah of course." I had totally forgotten about the movies tonight... 

Harry's smile turned into a grin and he grabbed my shoulder pulling me in the opposite direction I needed to go in. "Come on, you can just come to my place and we can chill for awhile." I froze pulling back but Harry continued to tug on my arm.

"I've got to take a waz, I'll see you tonight alright?" I freed myself from Harry's grip then ran towards the direction of the exit doors. 

"But Zayn!" I heard Harry call, "The washrooms are this way!" I ignored him and continued running. I needed to catch up with Alyssa, she was probably already halfway down the block. 

I pushed open the green metal doors and stumbled onto the pavement, glancing around for Alyssa. She had just turned the corner. Great, I could catch up to her. 

I pulled my backpack straps down forcing my pack to rise up as I ran down the parking lot towards the fence. As I neared the fence I slowed my pace down not wanting Alyssa to turn around and think I was a stalker or something. 

I slowed my pace to walking and kept a good distance from her as we both walked down the same street. She paused suddenly, and stood staring at the road. She looked confused. She turned around and looked right at me, then smiled. "You know, I was worried for a second." She said smiling. 

Was she talking to me? I turned around to see if there was anyone behind me that she was talking to, but it was just me. "What? No car today? You decided to follow me by foot?" She placed a hand on her hip, her brown eyes sparkling. 

My cheeks flushed. I turned my attention towards the sidewalk, kicking a pebble with my foot. So she noticed me driving past her everyday? "I wasn't following you..." I mumbled, "I live in this neighborhood. " A lie, a really bad lie. 

"Oh come on Zayn." She walked towards me, "I've been living here ever since I was four, and not once have I notice you." I turned away. She'd caught me. "So what is this? Why are you following me? You probably have this plan to prank me right?" She looked at me with displeasure. "Ugh, of course. You and your little group don't have anything better to do." She gave me one last look then turned to walk away but I grabbed her arm. 

"No, it's nothing like that." I stammered. "I- I like you Alyssa." Her eyes became wide and she let out a loud laugh. I furrowed my eyebrows, why didn't she believe me? "Alyssa, really." 

"Yeah, great prank." She turned around again but I tugged at her arm pulling her back towards me.

"I really do like you." I whispered looking into her deep brown eyes. "I was following you because I needed some time to just watch you." Wow... I sounded like a complete stalker. I hit my hand against my head and groaned, "Scratch that." I said, "That just sounds freaking creepy." She laughed and I couldn't help but smile. She was actually quite beautiful when she laughed. 

"Just, just agree you'll go on a date with me?" I asked with a hopeful smile.

"Zayn..." She trailed off, avoiding any eye contact with me whats so ever. 

"Please." I smiled again. Come on! This always worked on girls!

"I don't even know you very well." 

I sighed, stomping my foot on the ground. "Give me a chance then, get to know me and see what a great guy I can be." She looked at me for about a second, she was blushing. 

"I don't know." She looked away again, her cheeks flushing even more. 

 "Great I'll pick you up at 6 tomorrow night." I smiled turning around.

"Wait Zayn! I never said yes!" She called as I ran back towards the school parking lot. I had to get my car. "ZAYN!" She called again, but I just turned around and waved. 

I skipped on over to my car and unlocked it, throwing my backpack in the back seat then taking a seat in the drivers side. My phone buzzed in my pocket and I pulled it out to find a message from Louis.

From: Louis Tomlinson

Hey mate! I've got exciting news! You know Jenna? That blonde haired, blue eyed girl? She's Cassidy's friend, the one I've been hooking up with lately? Well I set you guys up! Tomorrow night at 6! Those girls are super popular, they've got links with everyone! If we can get in their circle, we'll get hooked up with anything we need! Wear something hot, the girls love it (; - Tommo

And that, was the price of being one of the popular guys. 


A/N: Yes the second half of this was from the prologue, I needed to mix it into one of the chapters somehow and I thought it was finally time for Zayn to ask Alyssa out.
