8. Chapter 7

Alec's P.O.V

I didn't know whether to cry or to bolt out of the room or to ignore Liam and pretend he didn't know. But it was all futile there was no escaping.
"How'd you figure it out?" I struggled to say while facing my papers. Nevada was done being shaded in. I grabbed a gold color pencil deciding whether to shade in Mexico or Arizona. I tried not to look at him because I knew, I knew if I looked at him I would completely loose it.
"Alec?" A different voice said, it was Niall. "It's okay." I didn't know what to do so I hugged him. He seemed shocked but hugged me back, it was the most comforting feeling ever.

Zayn's P.O.V

"So how long have you known Alec?" I asked Lexy
"About 2 years. I met him during lunch, he was sitting alone eating pizza. I had just seen his brother Luc buying pizza and leaving. I could tell he was lonely..." she admitted remembering that day....

-Flashback in Lexy's P.O.V-

"You okay?" I leaned in asking him, he nodded avoiding my gaze.
"Any friends?" He shook his head
"Well now you do!" He looked at me ad if asking why.
"No one deserves to be alone, okay? Plus you seem like a cool cat." I smiled at him and he seemed unsure still.
"I just had you in AP U.S. History, remember?" I hinted at him
"Now scoot I'm too lazy to stand around all lunch looking at you confused." I nudged him and he smiles, the beginning of our friendship.

-End of Flashback-

Lexy's P.O.V

"So you've only met him last year?" Zayn said shocked that I've only known him for so short of time.
"Yeah, but it's been his best year so far, I can tell." I admitted
"But why hasn't he told you about his home-life?" He pressed on more wondering what I was wondering as well.
"I think he doesn't want to be a bother. I want to help. I always notice the marks, the bruises, the sadness in his eyes. There's days when he's so empty, its so sad." I told Zayn trying to get him to understand Alec's situation.
"Well he can count on me. He doesn't deserve that." he said sadly.
"You're a nice guy Zayn, you know?" I told him, I could control myself now.
"Thanks?" He blushed and ruffed his hair causing me to laugh, he just didn't know what he did to me.

Liam's P.O.V

Alec hugged Niall and I felt relieved, he trusted Niall and I knew Niall could help him out if he didn't trust me or the other guys. I turned to see Harry, he was trying not to cry pretending to focus on shading in Spain.
"We can all help mate." I nodded towards Alec
"I just feel bad, I'm his neighbor." He groaned teary eyed
"It's all right Hazza." I told him, "At least we saved him."
"Liam?" a small voice said, Alec.
"Thanks." He said before leaving his chair to grab a tissue and sat back down.
"Wanna talk about it?" I questioned observing him closely.
"No." He said shaking his head and fiddling with his colored pencil.
"At lunch then." I confirmed, he looked at me like I was crazy, his eyes were puffy and red.
"We're all friends now, we'll help." I said gently. He turned to Niall who smiled and then to Harry.
"Now we have to come up with a nickname for you I'm Hazza." Harry smiled trying to make Alec feel welcomes, he only gave him a weak smile.

Alec's P.O.V

I smiled a bit relieved, I turned to Liam and offered my hand.
"Hi, I'm Aleczander Clark." He looked at me confused but caught on.
"I'm Liam, Liam Payne. And these weirdos are Niall Horan and Harry Styles." He smiled getting that I wanted to start over after that meltdown. But I knew Liam would bring it up again and that was something I wasn't ready to face. I pretty much ignored them for the rest of Geography, this class seemed endless and I was starved. I kept on glancing at the clock but it seemed as time kept on going slower on purpose.
"Somewhere important to go?" Niall leaned to me and whispered
"I'm starving." I replied comfortably, I liked him I didn't feel weird around him unlike the others.
"Me too, but I'm always like that!" He smiled, there were 2 more minutes left in class. I nodded at him and sighed in relief when the bell rang. I stood up and began gathering my things when Harry's voice stopped me.
"Hey Alec, eat lunch with us?" He said hopeful, I don't know why but I found myself saying yes.
To say lunch wasn't awkward would be an understatement. Apparently Lexy and Zayn had class together ans met us at their bench. I sat there with my daily lunch; a granola bar, a banana, and orange juice.
"That's all you're eating?" Niall said holding his chips, cheeseburger, and fries. I nodded taking a bite of my granola bar.
"That's not food..." He muttered
"Alec go with me to get food?" Zayn asked me while both Lexy and I stared at him.
"Uhm okay?" I said getting up walking away with Zayn
"You're getting food too, okay." He said in a gentle bit subtle demanding tone.
"I'm fine, I'm full." I said confused
"No you're not, cut the crap okay? Lexy told me everything." I stopped and he stopped as well.
"She cares for you Alec, now let's go get food?" He said pausing to see how I was doing. I was debating on whether to say no and walk away or making up a lie on why i didn't want food. Zayn was thinking the same.
"Don't pull the I'm full lie, the I have no money lie, or the no thanks either okay? I'm paying, my treat!" He grabbed my hand and led me to the cafeteria. I very awkwardly got a tray with Zayn ahead of me. Truth be told, I had no idea what I was doing, just grabbing whatever Zayn was grabbing.
"I'll let it slide this time. Next time I'm serious though." He said ruffling my hair while paying for our spaghetti, bread, salad, and soda.
"Next time?" I retorted
"Yes, next time." He said while walking back
"Why?" I sounded rude but I wanted to know why they had such an interest in me.
"Because we care." He simply stated sitting down next to Lexy. It felt nice finally having friends, well more than one at least. I picked up my fork and looked at Zayn, I smiled to show my appreciation and ate.
