24. Some Psycho Killer

Chloe's POV

I twisted the handle of the door and opened it, mentally begging it to not be some psycho killer who had followed me home. I looked up and nearly gaped at what I saw. It was Zayn. How had he found me?

"Z-Zayn," I stuttered. "Er, hi Chloe," he mumbled. We were just standing there, Zayn outside my flat, me inside my flat. "Uh, would you like to come in?" I asked. He nodded and I opened the door wider so he could.

He stepped in and ran his hand through his perfect hair, looking a bit nervous. I shut the door softly and walked into the kitchen with him following me. "Would you like some tea?" I asked nervously. He shook his head," no but can we talk?"

I closed my eyes for a second but then opened them again nodding. I didn't want to talk to him. He had made me feel so mad but also I felt so bad for him. I just stormed out, leaving him but here he was again, wanting to talk things over.

I motioned to a chair and he sat with me sitting opposite me. He ran his hand through his hair again and his intense gaze was set on me. "So, you wanted to talk," I reminded him. "Oh, um, yeah," he stumbled making me chuckle in my head.

"So, how's Perrie," I asked bitterly. My eyes widened and I immediately apologized," sorry. I didn't mean it--" "It's fine Chlo. We broke up." My jaw hit the floor and I just stared at him," you, b-broke up?" He nodded, a slight smile forming on his face.

"Oh, I'm sorry," I mumbled although inside I was cheering. I didn't understand what was going on with me. I was happy that Zayn had broken up with his girlfriend when I had asked him to. It was like I was jealous but I wasn't. At least I thought I wasn't.

"It's fine. It wasn't really, erm, working out. We were going to break up soon enough," he said. I nodded, not able to get any words out. Zayn looked around the flat and I instantly felt a wave of embarrassment wash over me.

This flat was old and miserable whereas he was used to luxury and wealth. This flat was the complete opposite with the cracked plaster peeling off the walls and tattered furniture dotted around the room. I hardly ever opened the curtains since I was too afraid that the dodgy people would target me or look at me through the windows.

"So, um," I trailed off not really knowing what to say. "Look. I just want to apologize for making you leave the other night. I didn't mean to make you mad and I shouldn't have asked you that, I was just... I just don't understand," Zayn said.

I felt my heart leap and also get knocked down by a great big pang.

I sighed," I couldn't deal with it. Everything was going wrong. You would hardly speak to me, even before it all... happened and then Dave. Niall didn't need to do that for me and he really didn't deserve to get so beaten up. I did but not him, not any of you," I took a deep breath and carried on.

"You hated me and so did Liam. I was pretty sure that all the boys did even though they didn't act like it. I caused so much pain, I broke your friendship and all I was or am is just a small girl who you used to love. I didn't know why you kept me because I forgot about all of you and I know that put you through so much pain."

"I had flashbacks and every time I would get more and more confused. Sometimes they were good but then there were some where I was mad, I was angry at you and I didn't know what order they were in. I didn't know what I was like before I lost my memory. I didn't know how I felt and I wanted to get away from it all because I knew that it was better for all of us if we had time apart."

I breathed out, finally I got that out of my system. What had been bottled up inside me for over a year was finally let out and I felt as if a great big weight had been lifted. Zayn's gaze had been fixed on me ever since I started, never moving.

He had listened to every single word and his facial expression never changed. "I won't say I understand because I will never understand what you went through but... thank you." I nodded but didn't say anything. He understood me. He didn't understand what I had been through, no one would but he understood me. and I wanted that.

Zayn's POV

I listened to every single word. I wanted to know, I needed to know. I would never understand what she went through but maybe I would understand her.

It was silent and we just looked at each other. I didn't know whether she was happy or not that Perrie and I had broken up but she seemed surprised. "I think, maybe, we could..." I started," I think that we should start over."

She looked at me raising her eyebrow slightly for me to carry on."It's been a year and for both of us it was hard. That year was probably the hardest year for me because... I didn't have you. Don't say that isn't true because it is, even if you don't want to admit it. I think we should start over as friends. We can see the boys and you can talk... to Liam. I know he wants to speak to you."

She didn't move. She listened, like me, to every single word. "Please," I added. She sighed and nodded. "But what does this mean Zayn?" she asked. "It means that neither of us will be able to forget what happened, that's impossible but we can try and start anew. Just to be friends and even if you don't remember me as such we can start things properly."

She smiled, fully this time and nodded. "You know, I thought you were some psycho killer when you knocked on the door. I never get visitors," she chuckled. I laughed," sorry about that."

"How did you even find where I lived?" she asked, resting her head on her hand. "Well, I, erm, I followed you. I mean, I was in the car and I saw you walking and I knew that I had to speak to you so I got out the car and followed you," I said, scratching the back of my head awkwardly.

She cocked her head back with laughter," no wonder I thought that someone was following me, I had this suspicion." I chuckled," I should become a spy." She nodded still laughing. I glanced at my watch.

"I'm sorry but I have to go. If I don't go back soon the boys are going to get worried," I said, a hint of sadness in my voice. She nodded," that's fine, don't worry but how are you going to get home?"

"I'll get a cab or something," I answered not really sure how I was going to get home. "Well, here's a number. Choose that one because the other ones are dodgy," she pointed to a number on a piece of paper.

"Sure thanks," I said. "No problem." I walked to the door and she walked behind me. "I'll see you, er, some other time?" she asked. "Yeah, I'll ring you. I know the others want to see you," I said smiling. She nodded," well, er bye."

" Bye and Chloe?" "Yeah?" "I never hated you and I never could," I said truthfully. "Really?" her eyes twinkling in tears. I nodded," and I never stopped loving you." I closed the door and walked away, all kinds of emotions running around inside of me.
