Little Talks

"I don't like walking around this old and empty house."
"Are you sure about this Zayn?" I asked with my hands grasping over the railing, wind blowing through my hair. "Don't worry." He tells me. "I'm nervous as much as you. But these little talks don't last long."
My summer was basically ruined thanks to my mother. After high school graduation, she forced me to work on the cruiseline she owns instead of giving me a choice if I want to like my older sister. But the first day of the cruise, the first day I saw them being complete dumbos. That day I didn't know that I would love one of them. Zayn was right, these little talks don't last long.


24. Wake up call

<Britta's POV>

I wake up to a white light. I look around once my vision cleared and noticed that I was in what looked like a hospital room. But I was still on the ship. So I must be in the infirmary. 

The doorknob turns, and the door opens. In comes Katie in her uniform, and her friend from freshman year who is also the new doctor. 

"Hey, Brit." Jason says. "Glad to see you're up." 

I sit up, and I notice that three-quarters of the pain was gone. "Yeah, but what happened?" I ask. "How did I faint?"

Jason went on how the nerves from my lower stomach traveled to my brain and too much of the nerves caused my brain to shut down (then he said he didn't know what he said. Yeah, he just got his medical degree). 

"Jason, mind if I talk to Katie, alone?" I ask Jason. 

"She has to go to work soon, but she can stay for a while." He answered and left the room. 

Katie looks at me. "I heard Harry raped you. I got so furious at him, and wanted to punch him. I even wanted to call the police because rape is against the law. But then I realize, 'We're on a cruise, and how can officials get on a moving ship?'. And well, he's already at the height of his fame." 

I lean against a pillow. "I still don't get why. Me, getting raped. It was worse than Junior prom." 

Katie gives me a weird look. "What happened at Junior Prom?" She asked. 

"Don't you remember me calling you sobbing saying that Mike left me for Emma and that I needed a ride home but you didn't care about that because you were with Allan watching a movie?" I tell her. 

Her face was turning pinkish-red. "Yeah. And about the whole movie thing..." She rambled. 

"He took your virginity?" 

She nods. "Well, he was the one who wanted me, and I gave in. I was a senior, and you were a junior." 

I close my eyes and take deep breaths. And I deal with her. "Okay. So when am I scheduled to leave?" I ask. 

"Later this evening." She answered. "They want to make sure you're not in as much pain as you were earlier." She pulls out her phone and checks the time. "I got to go, Brit. Don't want to be late. Mom knows you're here, but she doesn't know that you were raped. It's our little secret. I got to go. Bye!" She leaves my room, leaving me alone. 

Just as I reach for the remote on the side table to turn on the TV, Jason comes in. "How you feeling, Carter?" He asked. 

"I'm doing okay." I answer.

He sits down by my bedside. "So you were raped, huh?" 

How did he know?! Not looking at him, I slowly nod. He puts his hand on my arm. "You're the only person I've ever told this to. But when I was 17, I was dared to rape this girl at a party. And I did." My eyes grew as I looked at him. Why weren't the police involved? "And every day after that, I regret ever taking the dare. Now that girl, we ended up going to the same college together. And we are currently dating. We have for the past three years. And when I get off this cruise, I'm thinking of proposing to her." 

I sit up again. "Aw! That's so sweet." 

He smirks. "I'm just saying this. Even if you've did the dumbest mistake of your life, it can lead to something that can have a good impact. I got to check on Megan. She had tuberculosis. See ya soon!" This time, Jason leaves the room. 

I lie back down and watch TV. The Royals beat the Indians at an away game (the channel that came on was Sportscenter, and I was too lazy to change the channel). 

No less than half an hour later, the head nurse's voice came on the intercom. "Miss Carter, you have a visitor." 

Oh joy. I haven't had a visitor since Katie. I wait. The next thing I hear outside my door was "She's in here." 

My door opened and rushing in came someone. I fear it was someone else here to hurt me. But once the man took his sunglasses off. He sat down on my bed and took my head in his hands. 

After that, Zayn Malik presses his lips onto mine.
