You're Not Alone

17 year old Carlie is the perfect student, loyal bestfriend and one of the only people that stays sober at highschool parties.... So one day, someone spikes her drink and next thing she knows, she's lying next to Zayn Malik in bed. Will this unintelligent decision affect the rest of her life, or will she be able to pretend like nothing happened? Does she even love Zayn, and does he even love her, or was it just a one-night thing?!


8. Back to work

The next morning, Zayn and I drove around looking for jobs.  The first place we went was the restaurant I used to work at.

"When can you start working?", the manager asked me.

"Um, tomorrow. After school", I replied and she smiled.

"Great, well Carlie, I'll see you then", she said shaking my hand.

"Wait...I got the job?", I asked.

"Of course you did! I told you, you'll always have a job here", she said and I smiled.

"Awesome! Thank you soo much!", I said and she nodded.

"Well, I'll see you tomorrow. Be ready to work", she said and I nodded.

"Why, of course, have a nice day!", I told her.

"Bye, you too", she said and that was that. I got the job.

"Zaaaayn, I got the job", I practically sang getting into the car.

"Wow, that's wonderful babe", he said kissing me.

"I know right! I start tomorrow after school, and I'll work Monday thru Thrusday 3-7 and one weekend a month", I explained.

"We're never gonna see eachother", he complained.

"Yes we will babe. After I get home from work, and I don't work Fridays and most weekends unless I pick up extra shifts", I told him.

"I know, but what if I have to work every day or something?", he said gripping the steering wheel tightly.

"We'll figure it out, and I don't know try to make your work schedule like mine if you can, I guess", I told him and he sighed.

"I'll try but I don't know how I'm gonna balance two jobs...", he said, sounding really nervous.

"Then don't", I replied very quickly.

"I have to though", he said.

"No, no you don't. My job pays well, as long as they give me the same wage as last time, we'll be just fine", I said, trying to cheer him up.

"I find that hard to believe", he said shaking his head.

"Me too", I said starting to cry.

"Please don't cry, beautiful!", he told me.

But, I couldn't stop.  I only cried harder.

"What's the matter? I can't stand to see you like this! Is it something I said? Baby please tell me what's wrong", he said sounding really concerned.

"I don't know I'm really emotional, and I'm thinking about a lot", I replied quietly trying to get myself together, but of course I failed and that only made things worse.

"What's on your mind, and its okay to be emotional", he told me taking one hand off the steering wheel and grabbing my hand with it.

I didn't even know where to begin, so I gave it a minute.

"It's just this is going to be really hard, like we're only 16. How the hell are we supposed to raise a child? We're basically children ourselves. Plus, we're probably gonna want a place of our own to raise the baby in, not that there's anything wrong with living with your family, because I love it, but we need a place on our own once this little baby decides to be born", I said placing the hand he was holding on my stomach.  "And we don't know what we're doing Zayn. We are just a mess. We hooked up at a party because we both were totally wasted and now here we are", I said and he didn't say anything for a few moments.  Then he spoke, that sexy voice that makes me weak every time I hear it.

"Carlie, I totally understand where you're coming from and I agree with everything you're saying, but I don't regret anything. I love you. I love this baby, and I know its going to be really hard and its easier said than done but we can do this. We will be the best fucking parents there ever were, and everyone will be saying to themselves "'How in the hell did they do it'" ". Zayn said and I smiled.

"I guess you're right and I love you, too", I said kissing his cheek.

"Are you hungry?", he asked me.

"Yes, are you?", I asked.

"Very. Let's stop and get something to eat", he suggested.

"Sounds great to me!", I replied and stared at him, focusing on the road.

"Great", he said smirking.


After we got something to eat, we decided to go back to Zayn's house.

His mother was in the living room drinking some tea and watching something on TV when we came in.

"Hello Zayn, Hello Carlie!", she said greeting us.

"Hi mum", Zayn said.

"Hi, Mrs. Malik", I said, giving her a hug as Zayn kissed the top of her head.

"You guys are home awfully early", she said raising her eyebrows.

"I know. We didn't go to school today.  We were on a mission", he said and she laughed.

"A mission to do what exactly?", his mother questioned.

"To find Carlie a job", he said and I shook my head in agreement.

"Yeah, I decided it would be best if I got one, I mean I need to help pay for things once the baby comes and everything", I said and she nodded.

"Ah, yes. Babies are very expensive", she said then stared at the both of us.

"No more missing school now, you too. Zayn especially, You need to get your grades up", she explained.

"Not Carlie. She gets all A's", Zayn replied.

"That's splendid, dear", she said smiling.

"Thank you.  Grades are pretty important to me", I said smiling back at her.

 "Wonderful! Come, sit down darlings. We might have some things to discuss", she said  and we sat down on the sofa across from her.  Zayn put his arm around me and his mum rolled her eyes, laughing a bit.

"Have you set up a doctor's appointment yet, Carlie?", she asked me.

"No I haven't. I was thinking about that today", I said and she nodded.

"If you'd like, I can go with you. If your mum doesn't take you, my dear", she suggested.

"I'm going regardless its my baby too", Zayn said.

"Yes, I know my love, and thank you. I would really like having you there if my mum doesn't show, I'm guessing she won't", I responded.

"No problem sweetie!", she said and I got up and gave her a big hug.

"Are you hoping for a boy or girl?", she asked me and Zayn.

"It doesn't matter to me. I'm just praying that the baby's healthy", I said and Zayn added "Same with me".

"That's a great way to look at it, you two", she said smiling.

"But, I would like you both to know that I'm not really angry, but disappointed in you for having this sort of thing happen, but I love and I'm very proud in how you two are taking responsibilities for everything, and are keeping the baby.  So, I'm not going to yell, or anything like that and I will be here if you need anything.  I love you guys.  All three of you", she said and we both hugged her, then headed to Zayn's room for awhile.  I was really tired, so I fell asleep laying on Zayn's chest.
