7. Ready To Sleep?

Zayn POV

            When Charlotte accused me of keeping her here because I was lonely it hurt deeply. I became so overwhelmed with the urge to save her that it got the best of me. I thought locking her in the room for a while would allow us both to calm down. But then I heard a noise and I heard Charlotte scream my name. I rushed up the stairs and saw Eleanor clinging to Charlotte, who was dangling out of the window.

             Eleanor gave me instructions of what to do so I ran downstairs with a blanket and told the boys to help me. We held the blanket open and Eleanor talked Charlotte into letting go. When Charlotte fell though, she was unconscious. I took her in my arms to carry her inside but she woke up. When she awoke the boys went inside.

             Charlotte looked so beautiful sitting in my arms. She told me she had to go to Eleanor because I set off a switch or something. She kept insisting but something kept me from putting her down. Then the next thing I knew, my lips were on hers, for a soft and sweet kiss.

            I pulled back slowly and put her down. She smiled and then frowned. "He never did that," She whispered, touching her lips gently with her fingers.

           "Do you want to go back inside?" I asked her trying to change the topic. I didn't know why I kissed her. I didn't know I was planning on kissing her until my lips were on hers. What was wrong with me? Plus, I knew better than to ask who HE was. It would just set her off.

           "Yeah I guess," She said her gaze off into space.

           "Charlotte do you have family?" I inquired trying to figure out if they could help her.

           Her head snapped back and focused on me wih a glare. But then she took deep breath. "My mum told me to trust you," She whispered, her gaze tracing my hair.

           "When did you talk to your mum?" I asked her.

            "Just recently actually," She answered as if it was no big deal.

            "So do you trust me?" I questioned her.

            "I don't know. I'm confused." She said her eyesfinally falling on my face. Our eyes locked and it felt like I was frozen.

            "It's okay to be confused. And it's okay to be hurting," I told her, taking a small step closer.

            "This is so weird," She said quietly. I nodded because feeling trapped in place did feel weird.

            "We should probably go to sleep," I whispered.

             "Where am I sleeping?" She asked, turning and breaking the locked gazes.

             "I'm not sure. You could sleep in my bed. I don't mind sleeping on the floor," I told her.

             She nodded but didn't say anything so I lead the way back inside. "Guys we're going to bed so good night," I called to them as we walked past. Eleanor smiled encouragingly at Charlotte and then promptly sent me a warning look.

            Charlotte and I climbed the stairs in silence and I gave her a pair of pajamas that Eleanor brought over. She went into the bathroom and changed as I went to retrieve the razor from earlier. I hid it under my bed before Charlotte came back.

           "You all set love?" I asked her a couple of minutes later when she was lying in the bed and I was on the ground.

          "Yes. Night," She answered and turned away from me on the bed.

          "Good night sweetheart," I whispered and got comfortable myself.

"Sleep away the sadness of today,"
