20. Chapter 20


"Congratulations on winning, guys!" Doris exclaimed.

It was late in the evening and we were all sat down eating dinner. The food here was amazing, everything had so much variety and flavour! Tonight we were having the most gorgeous italian pasta i had ever tasted! Everyone was sat around a huge oak table with gold edges. I gazed around the room and everyone was smiling and enjoying themselves, just seeing everyone so happy made me smile.

"What are you smiling at?"

I looked up from my gorgeous meal and saw Niall standing to my side with his plate in his hand.

"Everything" I replied.

Niall sat down beside me and chuckled, setting his plate down carefully. 

"It's great your so happy, you've been in a great mood all evening. What amazing thing has put you in this amazing mood?" Niall grinned at me.

I though for a second, looking back at the events of the day and wondered; why was i in this amazing mood? Could it be because i won or could it be because maybe, just maybe i had Zayn back. I looked Niall right in the eyes, i wasn't sure whether or not to tell him about what happened with Zayn. I couldn't work out if Zayn and i were an item again but Niall was my friend, i know i can tell him absolutely anything.

"Well, i guess i can tell you" I turned around to face him fully. "I took your advice and decided i would talk to Zayn about what happened at Alanna's party. We were partnered together for the first challenge as you know and i took that as the perfect opportunity. I asked him what happened, and he told me; the important thing is i actually believe he was telling me the truth. I don't know how it happened but somewhere in that discussion he kind of confessed he still loves me. When we won the challenge, we sort of kissed. I think you and Luke left before that part though. So in the end i realised, i'm not over him"

Niall took a moment to let it all sink in.

"So" He began. "You guys are together again, then?"

I nodded.

"Oh" Was all Niall replied with.

He turned around to face forward and started to eat his dinner, i guess he didn't want to talk about it anymore. I studied his face for a minute, his eyes showed little emotion and his mouth was set in a straight line when it wasn't open or chewing food. I sighed, he was probably just tired; But what did i know? I've never actually had a proper boyfriend before, apart from Zayn, so i know nothing about boys except that they are confusing. I decided to stop worrying myself and get on with eating my dinner, it was probably quite cold by now. Every once and a while, between shovelling down the gorgeous pasta, i looked over to where Zayn was sat with Liam. I just admired at how amazing he was, he was so beautiful and he had no idea. Out of nowhere, he suddenly looked me straight in the eyes and blew me a kiss. Dumbfounded, i just stared at him; I absentmindedly caught the kiss in my hands and brought it to my heart. Zayn smiled and Liam looked over at me, wondering who the kiss was blown to. Liam laughed when he saw it was me, he leaned over to Zayn and said something which Zayn nodded in reply. I turned away from the boys just in time to see Connor sit down in the seat across from me. 

"Hey you" He said, handing me a chocolate fudge sundae from the tray the butler behind him was holding. 

"Hi Connor" I replied, taking the sundae from him. 

"How are you doing?"

"Pretty well, i guess and you?"

"Yeah, alright"

"That's good"

"Yeah. Umm, would you be able to do me a favour?"

"Sure thing, what do you want me to do?" 

"Well, i've really started to take a liking to your friend Lily and i was wondering if you could give her this note?" 

Connor handed me a little, folded piece of pink paper.

"Please don't open it"  He said.

I tucked it safely in the pocket of my jeans and smiled at him.

"Of course, don't you worry! You can trust me!" I replied.

"Thanks Ellie, you truly are the best" Connor says. 

We milled around for a while, just chatting and eating whatever we could find even though we weren't hungry. I got bored with talking to Grace, i think her name was, so i excused myself and wondered off to find Zayn. I looked everywhere but i couldn't find him, I decided to try one last place; the pool. I opened the huge wooden doors leading the inside pool/spa/sauna and walked straight in. 


I spun around from looking in the sauna and found Zayn resting his head on the edge of the pool.

"Um, Zayn?" I replied, a little unsure to as why he was in the pool. "What are you doing here?"

"I was about you ask you the same question" He replied, swimming into the middle of the pool.

"I was looking for you" I said. 

"Well, i was just taking a break from all of the chaos in the dining hall" Zayn said, swimming in circles.

"Oh, okay"

"Join me?" Zayn asked.

Zayn held his hand out towards me.

"I don't have any bathers on" I replied.

"Neither do i" 

I looked around and debated whether or not to go in, no one was around and i could always just go in in my underwear. It certainly seemed like Zayn had some sort of boxers on, so i would be safe. I stood and and slipped off my jeans and top. I stood awkwardly in front of Zayn for a moment, unsure where to get in.


Zayn held his hand out to me and i grabbed a hold of it. Zayn slowly lowered me down gently into the water, god he had an amazing body. The water was warm and my body relaxed as i slowly got used to the substance touching my body. I felt odd swimming around in just my underwear but it was late and i doubt anyone was going to go for a swim at this time of night. I laid back and floated on my back, i looked at the roof and notice it was completely made out of glass. It was wonderful, you could see the stars shining bright and the moon glowing gorgeously. 

"It's beautiful, isn't it?" I whispered.

I put my feet back onto the bottom of the pool and then started to tread the water. Zayn nodded and swam over to me.

"I have missed you so much, it's unbelievable" He said as he wrapped his strong arms around me, pulling me in close to him.

We cuddled like that for ages, just floating around the pool. I had never felt so safe in my life.


The warm, bright sunlight streamed through my curtains and caressed my face as i lay in bed debating whether or not to get up and have a shower. Well, i did go for a swim late last night so i suppose the chlorine was needing to be washed out of my hair. I threw back the covers and jumped out of bed, i was in the mood to dance and so i would. I rooted around in my suitcase until i fond my docking station and plugged it into the wall. I found my phone and stuck it on the docking station and hit play. I had no idea what songs i had put on here but i was about to find out. I walked into the bathroom and turned on the shower just as 'Get Lucky' by Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams came on. Perfect, this was my favourite song at the moment. I slipped of my little, cute pyjamas while wiggling around attempting to dance. I hopped into the shower and started to really get into the song, i was washing my hair and singing along:

♫we've come too far♫

♫to give up who we are♫

♫so let's raise the bar♫

♫and our cups to the stars

♫she's up all night 'til the sun

♫i'm up all night to get some

♫she's up all night for good fun♫

♫i'm up all night to get lucky

♫we're up all night 'til the sun♫

♫we're up all night to get some♫

♫we're up all night for good fun♫

♫we're up all night to get lucky

I rinsed off and stepped out into the steamy bathroom. I rubbed myself dry and stood with my head upside down trying to ring the water out of my hair.

"You're actually a really good singer"

I froze. I could feel someone behind me, i quickly flung the towel around me hoping they didn't see me naked. I turned around to see Zayn leaning against the door frame.

"You can't be in here!" I shouted.

"Why not?" Zayn said, standing up from the door frame. 

"I just got out of the shower!"


"I'm naked!"

"That doesn't bother me" He said cheekily.

Zayn made his way towards me but i held up my hand in front of me to stop him.

"No" I said. "Go"

"Go where?" Zayn asked.

"You can wait for me out in the lounge if you must wait for me" I replied simply.

"But your friends scare me" Zayn whined. "They stare at me and give me evil looks with their arms crossed!"

"Good, it wouldn't surprise me" I said.

"Can't i just wait in your room?" He asked pleadingly.

"No, now go" I said firmly.

Zayn pouted but none the less left my room and went into the lounge. I giggled to myself after he left, i couldn't believe he actually had the nerve to come into the bathroom while i was having a shower! I quickly slipped on some shorts and a light, lacy top and then set to work blowdrying my long hair. Once it was dry it was long, flowy, soft and shiny; Exactly how i liked it. I put on a little makeup and went back into my room to pick up my dirty clothes to put in the wash, i checked the pockets of all of my clothes and in my jeans i found a little slip of pink paper. It confused me for a minute or two but then i remembered that Connor gave it to me to give to Lily. I clutched hold of the paper and then made my way out into the lounge. The sight that awaited me really made me laugh. Zayn was sat in the middle of the couch surrounded by the all the Sophomore girls apart from Lucy who was stood at the back of the room brooding. Everyone was giving Zayn the evils. I walked up to Lucy and handed her the note.

"What's this?" She asked as i put the note in her hand.

"Open it and find out" I replied.

I then walked over to Zayn and he stood up.

"Right ladies, i am going out. Be good and don't get up to anything naughty!" I said jokingly.

I took Zayn's hand in mine and led him out of the room. As we left i heard Jazz mutter something to Zayn.

"Don't you dare hurt her again" She threatened menacingly. "Or we will get you"

I heard Zayn laugh nervously before we were down the hall and away from them. I turned to Zayn.

"So, what are we doing today?" I asked, entwining my fingers with his.

"We're going on a date" Zayn announced.

"I don't remember anything about a date" I joked.

"Well let's just say, you weren't awake when i asked you" Zayn replied with a grin.

"What's that supposed to mean?" I laughed.

Zayn just tapped his nose and ran off down the hall, expecting me to chase him. God how i love him.
