Broken But Still Sparkling

There's a story behind every person. There's a reason they are the way they are. They aren't just like that because they want to. Something in the past created them, and sometimes it's impossible to fix them. Aria is still grieving after her sister's painful death. When Zayn comes into Aria's life they immediately click, the only thing holding them back are lies, past drama and secrets.


9. A Different Direction


Aria’s POV


         I ran through the deserted through hallways and made a sharp turn for the bathroom. I dashed into the nearest stall and put my head in my hands. I tried to swallow the lump in my throat, but I finally gave in and tears began to flow freely down my face. I couldn’t believe I lost Zayn; I knew I would be rejected but I needed him more than anything. At Perrie’s party he had comforted me more than anyone ever could. I felt alone, truly alone. I was drowning in grief and depression and just as I was about to be pulled out of the water, the guiding hand let go, leaving me to plunge farther down the bottomless pit of sorrow. After Serena’s death, my life was forcefully turned upside down, and now all the hope has vanished. I wiped stray tears from my eyes and unlocked the bathroom stall. I quickly fixed my runny makeup and dried my eyes and then I strutted out of the bathroom.


Time Pass (Next Morning)


         I walked into homeroom as the shrill of the bell rang in my ears. I plopped down next to an empty desk and read the clutter of unread texts clogging up my phone. I had five from Zayn, explaining how sorry he was, that he never meant to hurt me, and that he wanted to talk to me. I selected all of the messages and immediately deleted them all at once. I scrolled through other messages to read a mysterious one from Sam Bradford. It read, “Dinner Tonight?” I was confused, Sam and I hadn’t talked for a while but he was a total hottie and not to mention smart and kind. And he also had a rocking set of abs from all of the sports he played. I obviously replied yes for two major reasons, one, that I liked him and two, I needed to get over Zayn. I bumped into Sam while dashing off to History Class, we chatted for a few minutes and made a plan to meet at Nandos at six. I waved goodbye and stumbled into History Class, unfortunately having to sit down next to Zayn Malik.

Zayn’s POV


         I saw Aria talking to a jock that I believed was Sam Bradford. I saw her wave goodbye smiling and walk into the classroom looking overly happy.

         “Why were you talking to that guy?” I asked Aria suspiciously. Aria’s smile immediately turned to a disgusted frown when I began talking.

         “Sam?” Aria asked, “Oh, I am going on a date with him tonight,” Aria replied casually.

         “A DATE?” I almost screamed.

         “Got a problem with that?” Aria said in a sassy tone.

         “No,” I snapped back. Mr. Anderson whipped his head around and glared at Aria and I.

         “Is there a problem I should know about?” Mr. Anderson said clearly annoyed we were talking.

         “YES!” Aria and I yelled in union. Without much thought, Aria and I began to fight. For a few seconds Mr. Anderson let the argument go on, hoping it would stop but after about a minute he began to fume.

         “BOTH OF YOU TO THE OFFICE!” Mr. Anderson shouted. Aria and I glanced at each other, “NOW!” Mr. Anderson screamed, startling Aria and I. We both grabbed are bags and slowly walked to the office.

         “Thanks Zayn,” Aria moaned sarcastically.

         “Thanks?” I began, “Last time I checked you began the fighting,” I snapped.

         “ME?” Aria yelled, “ I decided to move on from you and now you are suddenly getting mad at me,” Aria yelled in rage.

         “I-I guess your right, I-I have to go,” I stuttered out walking away shaking my head. I decided I would skip the office trip and play hooky for the day. I walked to my locker, grabbing the remainder of books I would need and headed out. Aria was right, I was mad at her for moving on. I guess I was jealous another guy would be with her other than me.


Aria’s POV


I walked to my locker grabbing my books and backpack. I decided I would take the rest of the school day off. How could Zayn? Zayn dumped me for his pregnant girlfriend and now he basically told me not to date anyone. What was wrong with him? Maybe he was telling the truth when he said he would have chosen me if Perrie hadn’t been pregnant.


Time Pass (Aria’s Date)


         I waved goodbye to Sam and drove back home, the dark night sending a shiver up my spine. The boy whom I had hoped would help me get over Zayn made matters worse. Every time I looked into Sam’s eyes all I could think about was Zayn. When I was with Sam, I had felt blank and empty but with Zayn I had connected and felt alive and complete. It was only then I figured out no one could compare to Zayn.  Of course I would never reveal this to Zayn, because clearly he didn’t feel the same way I did. Zayn may like me but what I feel with him is so much stronger.

Author's Note: 

Hello Again My Fellow Directioners! I hope you have enjoyed my fan fic so far. I was hoping for some feedback on the most recent chapters "The Big Decision and Perrie's WHAT?" and also "A Different Direction." Did you like these new chapters? Or were the chapters boring/too dramatic? I love feedback!!! : )

Thx! -Kat
