Still The One

"That was six months ago Carter," he said.
"I don't care Zayn! A lot has happened in six months. You broke my heart and I built a wall around it again. I thought you loved me. I thought we had something special, but I guess I was wrong, huh?"


17. Chapter 17

Carter's P.O.V

I haven't talked to Zayn for a month and a half. He doesn't even talk to me when Sophia is in the room. He doesn't even look at me. I wish he would talk to me, but I'm doing what Eleanor told me to do. I'm giving him time and space. 

Sophia is getting so big. She is trying to say words, but it still comes out as baby babble. She sits up by her self and crawls now. Soon she is going to start to walk. She tries to get up on her feet, but she falls back down. She is the cutest little thing ever!

Everyone is out doing something. I'm at home and Zayn is too, but he's in his room ignoring me like usual. Eleanor and Louis went out on a date, so did Danielle and Liam. Harry and Niall had dates with these girls they meet a few days ago. I wish I was out on a date, but the guy I want to be with is upstairs ignoring me, and I don't know how much longer I can go on without him. 

I was sitting on the couch with Sophia in my lap. Zayn came downstairs and took Sophia off my lap and sat down with her. I sighed. He looked at me, but I looked away. I heard Sophia giggling and I looked at her and Zayn. He was tickling her and she was giggling. I wish we were together. He is such a good father to her. I want her to have a family. I want her to have a mom and dad that love each other. Tears started forming in my eyes. I ran out of the room and upstairs. I slammed the door and fell on my bed. Why is he being like this? I just wish things could go back to normal. I got my suit cases out and started packing. I can't stay here any longer, if were not together. I can't see him if I can't have him.

Zayn's P.O.V

I went downstairs and Sophia was in Carter's lap. I went over to them and took Sophia out of Carter's lap and sat down with her in mine. I heard her sigh. I looked up and she was looking at me, but she looked back down. I started tickling Sophia and she started laughing. I saw Carter look up at us. A few seconds later she got up form the couch and ran upstairs. She was up stairs for ten minutes now.  I went up stairs and put Sophia in her crib. I walked out of her room and was going to Carter's and I heard sniffles. I looked in her room and she was packing everything. I went up behind her and wrapped my arms around her waist.

"I'm sorry I've been ignoring you. I thought it was the only way to stop my feelings for you, but I can't stop my feeling for you Carter. I love you." I said. She didn't try to take my hands off her waist, instead she turned around in my arms, and buried her head in my chest. She wrapped her arms around my waist and cried. I rubbed her back. Sophia started to cry and Carter went into her room and checked on her. While she was gone I started to unpack her clothes.

"What are you doing," she asked?

"Unpacking your clothes," he said.


"I though that..." He started to say, but I cut him off.

"You thought that what, I was going to stay because you apologized and said you loved me. I told you I loved you Zayn. When we kissed that day in the park I thought everything was ok. Then we didn't talk, and I caught you kissing someone else. My brother told you to stay away from me, but if you loved me so much like you say you do you wouldn't have listened to him. You would have listened to your heart. You ignored me for almost two months. I didn't what I thought was best I was giving you space from me, but now I need space." I said.

"So, you're leaving. You're leaving everyone that cares for you. Carter I know I messed up, but.."

"But what Zayn? I can't stay here, and look at you all the time, and know I don't get to go on dates with you. I don't get to kiss you or hug you. We both need time away from each other for a few days. I'm going to go to my mom and dad's for a few days. I want Sophia to stay with you. Is that alright?" She asked

"Yeah it's fine," I said looking down. I saw her walking towards me out of the corner of my eye.

"Zayn I really do love it's just that we have Sophia now and we can't be fighting when were together. It's not good for her. We can't be together and fight when we have to think about her. It will be good for me to go away so we can think about what is best and right now me leaving for a few days is best.   She's our number one priority right now." She said to me.

"I love you Carter, just remember that." I said to her. 

"I love you too, Zayn," she said and kissed my cheek.

Carter's P.O.V

I went ot put my bags down in the car. I came back up and Zayn had Sophia, so I could say goodbye. 

"Sophia mommy is going to go visit grandma for a few days and you're going to stay here with daddy. Mommy's going to miss you so much. I want you to be good for daddy." I told her and she looked at me. I gave her back to Zayn. I kissed her forehead. We all walked downstairs. 

"You know my number if you need anything. Tell the boys I'll be back in a few days." I said and walked out the door. As soon as I got in the car I put my head in my hands and cried. A few minutes later there was a knock on my window. I looked up and it was Zayn. I got out of the car.

"Don't leave. Stay here. I know you were only going for a few days, but I remember when you left for six months. Carter I can't let you go. Those six months were horrible. I couldn't get you out of my head. If you ask the boys, some days they had to literally drag me out of bed. When I saw you for the first time after you left I realized what I did and how stupid I was to do something so horrible to the girl I fell in love with. When I found out about Sophia I knew it was fate telling me that you're the one Carter. I need you please don't go," He said and I was crying even more now. I walked closer to him, and put my hands on his cheeks, and looked into his eyes. I pulled his head towards mine and closer the gap between us. This kiss sent fireworks off. Our lips moved in perfect sync. 

"I love you Carter, will you be mine again," he asked?

"I love you too Zayn, of course I will be yours again." I said and pecked his lips. He got my suit cases out o the car. We walked hand in hand back into the house. He brought my suit cases up to my room and walked down the stairs with Sophia in his hands. He put her in her play oenZayn and I were talking when we heard a little baby voice.

"Dada," Zayn and I looked at Sophia who was giving us a goofy grin. She was reaching her arms out to Zayn. He picked her up. 

"SHE SAID HER FIRST WORD!!" I yelled. Zayn laughed at me. We sat down on the couch. Zayn had Sophia in his lap and his arm was around my shoulder. 

"Our little girl in growing up," he said. I looked at him and smiled. He gave me a kiss on the lips. Maybe everything is going to be okay. Maybe Zayn and I could work this out. Hopefully we can.
