Jeanette and Niall Horan had been best friends since primary school, but he started touring and everything changed. During an unexpected return, will things between Jean and Niall change? or will she find love with another band member?


7. Road Trip


I woke up in the middle of the night and found that we were still at the beach and Jeanette was laying on my chest with my arm around her back. This was perfect, it felt so right. I closed my eyes and fell back asleep.



Oh my god, it was now 6 AM and the sun was shining extremely bright. We were still in the beach, Taylor and Niall were cuddled under a palm tree, Louis and Hannah were laying down together right in front of the water, Liam and Harry were each sleeping on one of the benches, as for me and Zayn, we were cuddling under another palm tree. I wanted to get up and wake up everyone else so we can head back home, but something inside of me wanted me to stay with Zayn and fall back asleep. Zayn must have noticed that I was awake because He woke up and sat up apologizing for what had happened.

"I'm so sorry, I shouldn't have, um I... I'm sorry" He whispered

"It's okay Zayn, really it's fine" I said as I looked up at him, he looked so beautiful in the sunlight. He had an extreme case of bed head and his eyes were half closed, but they still managed to sparkle. He caught me staring and started to giggle and now I was the one apologizing.

"Um, we should wake everyone else up" I said, still staring into his eyes.

"Yeah, I'll go wake up Harry and Liam" he said and started to walk towards the benches to wake the boys up. I felt awkward having to wake up the couples, but I did so anyway.

"Hey guys, wake up" I said nudging both Taylor and Niall. Fortunately Taylor is a light sleeper and woke up right away. She started to wake up Niall as I made my way over to Louis and Hannah.

"Guys wake up" I whispered

"Go away." Hannah muttered half asleep

"I will push both of you into the water, wake up" I said joking and both of their eyes immediately flashed open. As soon as everyone woke up we made our way back to my house and I made breakfast for us all.

"How fun was that" I said half sarcastically half serious

"Totally" Liam and Harry said at the same time and we all started to laugh.

"We should like hang out again today." Hannah said. Of course she'd still want to hang out since Louis and her were being all cutesy. 

"Yeah" Taylor said, "We should go to the movies later tonight, I heard that new scary movie 'Mama' is coming out"

"Or we can all go on a road-trip to that new resort, 'Resort Fantastico'" I said joking

"Oh my gosh yes! I've been dying to go there, you're so smart Jean!" Taylor said

"Wait what? I was kidding." I said and everyone laughed

"Well I'm not" Taylor said

"I think It'd be fun" Hannah added

"Me too" Louis commented

"Yep, I think we should go" Niall said

"Oh great, road-trip woohoo!" I said joking once again.


Hannah and Taylor had left to pack their bags for departure, we were going to the resort for 3 days. I was in my room preparing my bags and hoping that the boys were doing the same. I packed three bathing suits, one for each day. I had to take extra make-up so I could cover my scars, I don't want anyone to notice them, especially over vacation. I packed three pairs of shorts and a skirt just in case. I fished about ten tops and had to pick five to take, I also packed a dress and extra cardigans, I can't risk my scars being shown. I hopped in the shower before going back downstairs and changed once again. I threw on black high-waisted shorts and a long sleeved white tee, I put on some lip gloss and sunglasses. I grabbed my bags and waited for the boys downstairs. As soon as all the boys were done I called Hannah and Taylor and they arrived right away. Liam, Hannah, Taylor and I went in one car and the rest of the boys went in the other. We put all our stuff in the trunks of the cars and left right away, the trip would be four to five hours long.

"Hey Jean, can you put up the music?" Hannah asked and so I did.

"I'm so excited" Taylor said and Hannah agreed.

"So, Hannah are you and Louis like dating now?" I asked

"Well kind of, I mean I really like him. He's such a sweet guy. But I don't want to get my hopes to high" she replied.

"Oh, don't worry" Liam said " Louis likes you, a lot. you're all he talks about" He said laughing. Liam was driving and I was riding shotgun, Hannah and Taylor were sitting in the back.

"How about you and Zayn?" Taylor asked

"What? no, there's nothing going on between us we're just friends" I reassured her

"Yeah, well I've seen the way he looks at you, I think he likes you" Hannah said.

"No, that can't be" I said blushing and hoping that nobody would notice.


We had about two hours in the car and were coming to a stop so we could rest and snack on something. I jumped out of the car and stretched, Hannah and Taylor went to find their boyfriends and Liam went to the restroom. We had agreed to meet back at the cars in an hour. I spotted Zayn and he was making his way towards me.

"Seems like everyone's scattered" he said, I laughed and agreed with him. "Do you wanna go inside and get something to eat?" he asked me.

"Yeah sure" I replied smiling.

We walked into a barely full fast-food restaurant.

"Yum, Mexican food" I said "It's my favorite" Zayn flashed a smile my way and got on line to order. In a matter of minutes Zayn was walking towards the table I had picked with a tray of tacos in his hands.

"Yuuum" I said and Zayn burst out in laughter at my face expression. I grabbed a taco and started eating like crazy, I was starving. I totally forgot that Zayn was there and watching me eat.

"You eat like a little pig" He said joking and giggling

"Hey!" I shouted and playfully hit him in the arm " I'm just really hungry" I said making a pouty face. Zayn laughed even more at my face expression now. I really liked how he laughs, it felt comforting in a strange way.

"We should hurry up and get back to the cars before they leave us" He said laughing, I agreed and we finished up our food and headed outside.

"There you are!" Niall said, "We've been waiting for you guys". We got into the cars and started to drive off again.



I love spending time with Jean, she's so fun to be around, and wow she's gorgeous. 

"Zayn" Niall interrupted my thoughts

"Ye mate?" I asked

"Do you like Jean?"

"Um, yeah I like spending time with her" I answered

"Well, I think it's more than just that. I understand if you want to date her, but don't you ever hurt her." He said

"Niall, I would never dare to hurt Jean, I hope you can understand that." 

"I've known Jean all of my life, and I love her Zayn, please be careful with her. She's had a harsh life." Niall said. It made me wonder about her past, I wonder what could have possibly been so bad that Niall would react in this way. But I didn't bother to ask him, I know he wouldn't tell me.



Zayn is such a good guy, I have so much fun when I'm around him.

"How can you deny it Jean! We saw you with Zayn, you guys looked so cute" Hannah said

"Gosh we're only friends Hannah, stop it!" I replied

"Well do you like him?" Liam asked me

"I like him as a friend guys! he's such a great guy, but I don't think I'll ever be able to fall in love again. Not after, you guys know what." I said

"What?" Liam asked

"Well, there was a guy. His name was Eric Blue, he was my very first boyfriend. I thought I was in love with him, but all it was, was fear. He was an abusive guy, whenever I disagreed with him, He'd hit me, he would call me names, even cut me. One day I broke up with him, and ever since then he's been bullying me." I answered and started to tear up

"Oh my god, I'm so sorry Jean, I shouldn't have asked. I'm sorry." Liam said

"No, it's fine. Don't worry about it" I said

A couple more hours passed and we were almost at the resort. We got there in about ten minutes and Liam told us to go make our reservations while he parked the car.
