If You Love Something, Don't Set It Free

"Letting go of something is the hardest thing to do but if there was really love, they will always come back."


16. I Dont Usually Fall In Love This Easily

Emily's POV:

"You ready to go babe?" Zayn asks me.

"Yea." I reply.

We were going to the beach. I was excited to spend some time out with Zayn. He's such a down to earth, loving guy and he's so sweet. He cares about me and respects me and asks for my say in things and doesn't force me to do things. I couldn't ask for a better boyfriend.

 I noticed that when we arrived at the beach, we weren't in London, we were in Bradford, Zayn's hometown. I didn't ask him why we were here because I liked it here.

 Zayn opens the boot of the car and takes out a picnic basket. I didn't see him put it in there when we left.

"What's the picnic basket for?" I ask him.

"It's going to be a special afternoon with just me and you. No One Direction drama and none of the boys and their girlfriends. Just me and you babe." He replies.

"Thank you Zayn. I really wanted to spend some time alone with you."

"C'mon, I'm gonna take you some place special." Zayn says.

Some place special? On the beach? Okay? I know that I've never been to this beach before but, I'm pretty sure that its just sandy ground and water.

But, I was wrong. Zayn grabs my hand and leads me through a forest of trees. We keep walking for 10 minutes straight until we end up at the end of the forest. You could see the other side of the ocean and the sun shining its rays overhead. It was such a beautiful spot.

"What do you think?" He asks me.

Zayn's POV:

"It's absolutely beautiful!" She says.

"Come sit with me." I tell her as I lay the blanket on the ground and set up our lunch.

She sits on the blanket and looks at all the food that I brought.

"You know, it's just the two of us. You didn't need to bring all of this food." She says.

"I brought a little too much right?" I ask.

"Yea. More like a lot too much." Emily makes me crack up with her sarcasm. She has a great sense of humor. Now I know why her and Millenia-Iris get along so well.

"So, what's so special about this place?" Emily asks me.

"Well, when I was little, my mom and dad used to bring me here all the time. Me and my dad found this little spot one day when we were walking. Ever since then, I've always came here." I reply.

"Then your dad must be a good navigator because I would have never found this place. He sounds like a really cool dad." She says.

"Yea he was a really cool dad." I reply.


"Yea, before he...ummm... You know... Before he passed." I say trying to keep my tears back. I was a tough guy but whenever I talked about my dad, I got emotional.

"Oh my gosh Zayn. I'm so sorry. I'm sorry for asking. Please don't cry." Emily wraps me in her arms and begins to cry.

"It's okay babe. Please don't cry. It's not your fault. I'm okay." I tell her. I didn't want her to cry over something that she didn't need to cry over. This was supposed to be a romantic beach lunch and I turned it into a crying fest.

"You okay?" She asks me.

"I'm fine." I kiss her forehead.

To keep us busy, we begin to eat lunch. Emily wasn't much of a eater so she ate a sandwich and had a few chips and that's all. On the other hand, I loved to eat. I ate 2 sandwiches and 2 bags of chips in the time that she ate her food. I wasn't fat but I did love to eat just like the rest of the boys, especially Niall.

We finished eating and we decided to go for a swim. Emily took off her shirt and shorts revealing her bare body in a bikini. I can't help but stare at her. Her figure was so sexy.

"Take a picture, it lasts longer." She says. There it was again, that sarcasm of hers.

I just begin to laugh as I take off my shirt leaving my bare upper half soaked by the sun.

I grab Emily's hand and we begin to walk down to the water. I was a little hesitant since I can't swim but I couldn't let her know that even though I'm pretty sure she knew already.

"Do you want me to stay with you?" She asks me.

"Yes." I say with a smile on my face. She was so caring and she knew that I was terrified.

"Okay, don't worry. I got you." She said. 

By the end of the hour, I didn't need her by my side. She had taught me some basic swimming techniques. I was doing the doggie paddle and looked like an idiot but I was doing it for her. She was standing there laughing as Im trying my best to stay afloat. I make my way into the shallower water and sneak behind her. She was too busy laughing notice that I was behind her.

"Hey Emily!" I say. She turns around and I splash water in her face.

"You did not just do that." She says in a sassy tone.

"That's why they call me the Bradford Badboy." I say as I let out a chuckle but I begin to choke on the water that Emily splashed at me. I wasn't really choking. It was all part of my plan.

"Oh my gosh Zayn!! Are you okay? I didn't mean to make you choke on it!!" She sas as she makes her way through the deeper water to get to me.

As she approaches me, I scoop up the water like a spoon and splash her again.

"I can't believe I fell for that!!" She yells.

"I love getting you angry. You look so cute." I say.

"Hahaha. Not funny Zayn." She says.

"Come here." I say as I grab her waist and pull her close to me. I smash my lips against hers as we stand in the water kissing each other passionately.

When we finally broke from the kiss, we head back to our little blanket and dry off. I lay down next to her as we close our eyes and soak in the sun.

"I don't fall in love easily." I say.

"What do you-" but I cut her off.

"But that all changed when I met you Emily. When I saw you that day at the meet and greet with Millenia, my eyes were glued on you. I wanted to make you mine. You are so beautiful, sweet, funny, caring, and such a great person. And.... I love you." I tell her.

"You, you love me?" She asks as if in shock.

"I love you Emily. With all my heart." I say.

"I love you too Zayn. I love you so much." She says. I turn my body and embrace her in my arms. I never wanted to let her go. Never.
