26. Zayn

I sat on my couch watching a movie. I had numerous text messages from Niall, but I ignored them. As I sat looking into the tv screen, I felt my phone vibrate under the covers. I pick up the covers and look around for my phone. I sighed as I picked it up, it was probably Niall again. As I unlocked my phone I was shocked that I had recieved a text from Zayn. Confused, I opened the text.

"I heard what happened last night, how are you feeling? xx"

I looked at my phone screen, and then replied shortly after.

"I'm fine, just a little shaken up. Thanks" I put my phone down and returned to the movie before getting interupted by another text. I looked down to see another text from Zayn.

"If you need someone to talk to I'm here for you :)x"

A smile rose on face as I replied to him.

"Thanks Zayn, I apreciate it xx" I put my phone back and got up from the couch. I walked into the kitchen and pulled a cup out of the cubboard. I strolled to the fridge to take out some fruit juice. I opened the door and was interupted by the sound of my phone ringing. I walked back to the couch to see I was getting a call. I picked up my phone to see who the caller was. It was Niall.

"What do you want Niall."

"We need to talk. No shouting. No fighting. We need to clear this up."

"Niall, it's over. I don't need an exc-" I was cut off by Niall.

"Please, just 10 minutes. Just give me 10 minutes Alexis."

I bit my bottom lip. I was trying hard to just push him away, something that was very difficult for me to do.


I shut my eyes as a tear slipped out. I couldn't ignore Niall, even if I tried.

"Ok" I spoke queitly into the phone.

"I'll be there in a few." Niall spoke before hanging up the phone.

My entire house fell silent for a minute. I sat on the couch and looked out the window. Outside was a large tree with reddish orange leaves dangling from it's branches. The leaves swayed in the evening wind. It seemed like forever before I heard a knocking outside my door. I jumped at the abrupt noise. I lifted my body off the couch and walked over to the door. I opened the door to see Niall in my doorway. He was wearing a gray jumper and dark jeans.

I stepped over to the couch after letting him in. Our bodies both sank into the couch. I looked up into his blue eyes. He looked back into mine aqnd began to speak to me.

"Thanks for letting me come over"

"You have ten minutes, like you said." I looked up at him, giving him a stern expression.

"Alexis, what happened that night was a drunken mistake. She meant noting to me, and if I could I'd take it back. I love you.." He stared into my eyes tucking a piece of my brown hair behind my ears. "The last thing I want to do is hurt you. You mean everything to me."

I took my focus off of his eyes, turning to the floor trying to process what he had just said. I turned back to his face. He gave me sympatheic look.

"How can I trust you?"

As I spoke Niall grabbed my hand and squeezed it softly.

"When have I ever lied to?"

I sat back into my sofa as his words sank in. He had a valid point. Niall was such an honest person, that was something I loved him about him. Although his honestly, what he had done was unexcusable.

"Maybe we weren't meant to be together." I said looking into his eyes once again. "I think it's best if we just stayed bestfriends." I noticed tears starting to feel his eyes. Tears fell from my eyes as well. "I think it's be the best thing to do." I choked.

"You're just going to give up on us? Just like that?" He spoke, hurt in his voice.

I was hurt. I couldn't think of the right words to say. Too many thoughts running through my mind.

"Can we just try one more time, Alex? Please, I'll make it better this time." He leaned in and held me.

I didn't resist, or push him away. His embrace made me feel, safe. His head fit in the space between my neck and my shoulder. I could feel my shoulder moisten as tears escaped his eyes. This was all too much, I couldn't process anything, let alone make a well thought out decision.

"I need time and space to think, I can't forgive you that easily." I was barely able to speak up with all the thoughts racing through my head.

"Take all the time you need, I'll be here." He said lifting his head from my shoulder.

I couldn't help but wrap my arms around his neck and hold him. I felt his broad arms wrap around my waist in a tight embrace. Being in his arms eased my thoughts. I felt more relaxed in his embrace, I felt safe.

"I should be going." Niall spoke pulling away from our tight hold. I was brought out of my thoughts by his words. I let him out and sat back on the sofa and stared into the blank tv screen

**Next day**

I groaned as my cell phone vibration woke me up. I picked my head up from the pillow to search for my phone. My hands spotted it under my pillow and I unlocked it. I had a new text message.
From Zayn. The bright light blinded my eyes as I checked the message with only one eye opened.

"Goodmorning, sleep well?xx"

I yawned as I flipped over on my back to answer the text. My fingers slowly typed my message, I was still waking up.

"Morning Zayn, I slept fine thanks. You?"

I let my phone fall on my stomach as I stretched out my arms. Me and Zayn were always texting eachother. Me and him had this tight bond. I trusted him, and he trusted me. He was the perfect person to talk to when you were feeling down. I also had a minor crush on him, but it wasn't serious or anything. I looked up at my ceiling and drifted off into deep thought until my phone vibrated on my stomach. I rubbed my eye with one hand, opening the text with the other.

"I have some free time, would you fancy coming over to catch up? It's been a while"

I couldn't help the smile that rose on my face.

"Sounds nice, be there a bit later x" I replied setting my phone on the bed.

I pushed the duvet back and crawled out. I grabbed some clothes and entered the bathroom to shower. When I got out the shower I clothed myself and began to get ready. I put on a bit of make-up and pulled my hair back into a ponytail. I walked into my bedroom and grabbed my phone. I had another text from Zayn.

"Alright hun, I'll be waiting"

I also had a text from Niall.

"just wanted u t know you're on my mind, nd i hope u slept well,"

I ignored his message not thinking to much about it at the time. I went back to Zayn's text and quickly replied.

"On my way, be there in a bit xx"

I jogged downstairs and out the door. I closed the door behind me and pulled out my key to lock it. I strolled over to my car and hopped in. I put the key in and started the egnition. I backed out of my parkway and drove out into the street. A few minutes in the car passed and I arrived on the street Zayn's apartment was on. I parked my car in a small parking lot. I walked passed a few apartments before reaching Zayn's.

I knocked on his door and minutes later Zayn opened it. The sight of him put a smile on my face.

"Hey!" He said letting me in. I wandered through Zayns apartmenet before having a seat on his couch. Zayn joined me shortly after with two mugs with steam twisting out from them. He put them down on the coffee table in front of us.

"Tea?" He asked, a smile on his face.

"Thanks" I smiled and picked up the mug.

"So what have I missed?" He asked with a smirk on his face.

I always loved talking with him, he was an easy person to vent to and he gave really good advice. I sighed, placing my mug back on the small table in front of me.

"Other than Niall breaking my heart and me losing one of my good friends because of Lucy.. I got a new car." I joked, trying to brighten my mood.

Zayn chuckled at my words as he leaned to hug me. He wrapped his arms around me, and I wrapped mine around his neck. Zayn sat closer to me now.

"I'm sorry things between you and Niall had to be this way." He said looking into my blue eyes. I sighed and looked at the floor. My attenetion was brought back to Zayn's beautiful eyes as He put a finger under my chin.

"I'll always be here for you, keep head held high."

I couldnt help but smile. "Thanks, and I'll always be here for you." I said playfully poking his chest.

"So shall I put in a movie?" He asked getting up from the couch.

"That sounds nice" I give him a smile.

I watched as Zayn sat down and chose from the movies,he chose one and popped it into the dvd player. He pressed play and disapeared into his dark hallway. The sun was just begginning to set outside. He came back seconds later with a blanket and a few pillows. As he approached the couch he handed me a pillow and sat down. He leaned against his pillow and threw blankets over our bodies. I set my pillow next to Zayn's shoulder and leaned into him as we shared the blanket.

I had totally forgot about Niall and everything that had been going on. As the movie went on I found me and Zayn forming into a cuddle. I rested my head on his chest and he wrapped his arm around me. I looked up at him. The only light in the room came from the tv. His eyes glowed in the dim lighting. He looked down and I looked away hoping he didn't catch me, but I felt his smirk. I had been caught.

I looked back up to him to see he was already looking down at me. My cheeks turned red as I blushed. He smiled at the sight of me.

"Enjoying yourself?" He asked with a chuckle.

I looked up at him and smiled. "I'm having a great time." I speak in a low voice.

"Good to know." Zayn says slowly.
Sudddenly Zayns head leaned into mine, our lips connecting. His tongue slowly slid into my mouth. He placed his hands on my hips and I wrapped mine around his neck. We continued the intimate kiss for what seemed to be hours before breaking apart. I leaned my forehead onto his and looked into his eyes. I noticed the lust in his eyes.

"Stay the night." He spoke out, almost demanding. I nodded my head and he got off the couch and led me to his bedroom. We entered the room and he turned the light on. I sat on his bed and he walked over to his dresser. He pulled out a t shirt and tossed it to me.

"Here, you can change into this.

I picked up the shirt and stood in front of the bed. I looked at Zayn signaling him to turn around. He chuckled and turned his body. I slipped off my pants and shirt. I notice Zayn trying to peek.

"Hey!" I playfully shouted as I slipped his shirt over my head. His t shirt barely reached my thighs. He laughed tugging off his jeans and shirt.

I climbed under the sheets and he joined me. I turned to my side to face him. He looked at me and crashed his lips into mine. We kissed for a few minutes before pulling away.

At that moment Zayn had washed away my thoughts about Niall. He made me forget my troubles, and in the moment.. it all felt so right.
