Over Again - Sequel to Why Me?

The next thing was all a blur. An ugly face coming out of the darkness, a swinging bat and the shot of a gun...
Everything went black....

Those were the last words of the last chapter of Why Me? Please read xoxo


21. Nervous Smiles

Chloe's POV

I entered Starbucks through the back and chucked my bag on the hook and put my apron on. I tied the string round at the back with a nice bow before setting off to find Amy since we were due to start work in 10 minutes.

"Er, Stacy, have you seen Amy?" I asked nervously. She whipped around, her blonde hair hitting my face and she smirked when she saw me. "Oh, so you actually decided to not skip work today? Well that's nice," she grinned, her eyes looking me over.

"You know, I don't think me or anyone else wants to hear your bullshit so would just tell me where Amy is?" I said annoyed. I had got a lot more confidence in the last year and now, I was able to stand up to myself, sort of. "Ugh, fine. She went that way," she said tiredly, cocking her hip to the side and pointing to the left.

I rolled my eyes at her and followed the direction of her finger. I spotted Amy sitting on a stool and flicking through some magazine. "Hey Amy," I chirped. She immediately looked up and flung her arms around me. "Chloe!" she said happily.

"What you reading?" I asked, sitting on the stool next to her and snatching the magazine out of her hands. "Just some random one I found on the tables this morning," she said, digging her phone out of her pocket and removing her attention away from me.

I flicked through the pages. There was nothing interesting. It was all about celebrities who were either going to Rehab, starting a tour,  caught having a sex tape, Perrie excited about going on a date with Zayn Malik, giving charity money, wait what?!

I rushed through the pages back to the page with Zayn and this girl, Perrie. My eyes widened as I saw her. She was stunning. I mean gorgeous. No wonder Zayn forgot about me or moved on. If I were him, I would have. A tear welled up in my eye but I brushed it away.

No, Zayn had done what I had asked him to so I couldn't cry over this. To be honest I had no clue why I was crying over this. Apparently, Perrie was excited because Zayn was taking her on a special date soon and-- BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ

I scrambled around in my apron pocket, trying to find my phone. My heart almost stopped then did a somersault in the air and then a cartwheel when I saw it was Zayn. I took a deep breath and pressed answer.

"Um, hi Zayn," I said nervously. I stood up from my stool and walked away, leaving Amy in confusion. "Hi Chloe, I'm glad you picked up, I thought you wouldn't for a moment," he chuckled awkwardly. I gave him a soft laugh and there was an awkward silence.

"So, er, I was wondering if you um, wanted to meet up. I mean talk today?" he asked. "Um, what time?" I asked, praying that he was only free when I was not. "Whenever you can, I am free all day," he said. I groaned in my head. Why couldn't he be busy?

"I end work at 5:45 today so maybe around 6?" I asked, twiddling my thumbs anxiously. "Perfect, I can meet you at Starbucks?" "But what if--" "Don't worry, I will come wearing a disguise but I will text you it later so you know if it is me or not."

I could almost see how happy he was that I hadn't refused to talk to him. I didn't want to lie to him, he didn't deserve it, no matter how much I wanted to say no. "Um, that's fine. I will see you, er, later then?" I said.

"Yeah, see you later Chlo," he said happily. "Bye Zayn," I said. I couldn't help a smile creep up onto my face as he called me his nickname for me. It was like his own special nickname for me and to be honest, I didn't mind in the slightest.

Zayn's POV

I took one last look in the mirror, making sure I looked good. I decided not to have a white line in my quiff and just have it black. I was wearing some jeans, a white v-lined t-shirt, a zip up hoodie with a varsity jacket on top.

I walked out of my room and into the sitting room where I found all 4 boys sprawled out on the sofa and floor. "I'm going out,"I muttered and walked out of the flat. We didn't really talk much, unless we really had too but the boys knew what had happened to me and still treated me the same, thankfully.

I walked into the street and I was taken by surprise by how cold it was. It wasn't that far a distance to Starbucks and it was 5:45 now so I would be there at 5:50 or something. I had a beanie on and some glasses, not shades but some normal glasses which were slightly tinted so it was harder to recognise me.

5 minutes later, I arrived at Starbucks. I took a deep breath and walked in. I instantly noticed Chloe over at a table, looking slightly frustrated and glancing at the clock a couple of times. Seeing as she couldn't see me, I took this one chance to check her out.

She was still breathtaking, even in an apron which hugged her figure and her hair was tied up in a ponytail which swayed behind her. Suddenly, she turned round and I tore my eyes from her pretending that I hadn't noticed her.

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw her looking at me. A sort of nervous smile etched on her face. I turned round to face her even though she was a couple of metres away from me. She blushed and made her way to the back. Well, she knew it was me thank god.

I went up to the till but made my way to the side, following Chloe. "Chloe," I whispered. She turned around slowly and looked at me. "That's you Zayn right?" she asked nervously. I nodded. "I will be out in a minute, one sec," she said. I nodded again and she disappeared from view.

I waited their awkwardly as people gave me strange looks but I ignored them, knowing full well that if I wasn't wearing my disguise, people would be smiling at me. A few seconds later she walked back out again and I smiled at her.

She returned another gorgeous but nervous smile and I placed my hand on the small of her back, leading her out. "Sorry I over ran, some stupid family couldn't decide what to order," she said rolling her eyes and making me laugh. "Don't worry it's fine," I said.

"So, um, where are we going?" she asked looking around. "Um, well, I am not exactly sure. I didn't really plan it out," I said, hitting myself mentally around the head. I was so stupid. She giggled and leaned into me more. Butterflies exploded round my stomach and it felt so perfect.

"Do you even know this place?" she asked. "Nope," I said. It was nice that we were getting along, I hadn't such a nice conversation in ages. "Well, how about we go to the park? It won't be too crowded around now," she asked. "That sounds perfect."
