One Way or Another

Jenkins Ocean is nothing but a trouble maker after her parent's death. She's at an orphanage since she's not 18 yet. Her dad's all-time best friend since high school -Simon- decides that he's interfering.

Taken in by Simon Cowell, she meets what seemed at first the pain in the ass called One Direction. They all seemed nice to her, everyone but bad boy Zayn, though Zayn's not really fond of her either.


26. Apologies and moving plan


I made Zayn leave with the fake excuse of the boys worrying about him. The truth was, Uncle Simon had texted me saying that he was in Venice and that he needed to talk to Zayn, but he couldn't know.

As much as I had wanted to go back home, I don't think I could have. I opened my laptop and opened the conversation I had had with Uncle Simon some nights ago. I had been happy, but I didn't think staying with the boys was the best idea.

Simon and I had agreed that maybe it was the best if he went back to Glasgow and I went to live with him.

We were leaving and I didn't know how I was going to tell them. It crushed my heart, but it was for the better. Fruit loop and I were just going to end up killing each other. Or maybe the opposite. I didn't know if I feared going away or I wanted it.

My phone buzzed. It was Liam. "You are leaving." He said.

"Why is that not a question?"

"Because that's not the question I want you to answer."

"Which one is it, then?"

"Why are you leaving us when you and Zayn finally got along and we're all bonding more than ever."

"Because of that. I can't loose anyone again."

"So you're just gonna be on your own? Come on, Jen, you can't leave just like that." By this point, I was already sobbing. 

"I'm sorry, Liam. I just need to leave. See you tomorrow."

"Are you alright?"

"Yeah, good night, Liam."

"Good night, Jen." He said and hung up. Why was it so hard to leave and to stay? I rubbed my face with my sweat shirt sleeves and fell back on the bed. I just closed my eyes and fell asleep-



Well, I had already apologized and I guess we could say we're friends, though I never quite got why she made me leave or why she hadn't come with me. I mean, weren't we supposed to be a couple?

I wondered about that during the water cab trip back to my hotel. I went to my room and the boys were waiting for me with Paul... and also Simon.

"Well, it was about time you showed up. Where were you?"

"Making things right with Cupcake." I simply answered as none of the six pairs of eyes ever left me.

"Sit down, Malik." Si ordered, pointing at a chair. "We need to talk."

I sat on the chair and watched Uncle Si walk from side to side of the room. "What part of taking care of her you didn't get?"

"I was angry and I got drunk and I'm sorry, I apologized a lot of times and I didn't know anything. And what happened with the picture was none of my business. It was Harry picturing my panicking moment!" I defended myself.

"I'll talk to Styles later." He said. I looked over at Harry, who was glaring at me.

"But Uncle Si, I did it for them!"

"Shut up, Curly! You messed things up!" I shouted. It was too much!

Why was everybody so into me and Cupcake dating? Why had they forced us to pretend to be dating? Why had they made us come to this trip? "And why is it so important that me and Cupcake end up together?"

"Because I know you too and I know you two are going to end up dating, but you just have much too pride to recognize it." Simon said.

"How can you be so sure?"

"She's my closest attempt to a niece! I know how she's like and what she likes and what she doesn't! I know her, I've always known her. And I know you!

"But due to some events, I'm coming back to the UK and Jen's going to live with me."

"But we'll see her, right?" Li asked.

"Yeah, if you go to Glasgow." Uncle Si answered.

"What?" The lads and I said.

"Jen and I are moving to Glasgow." He repeated.

"When are you leaving?" It was unbelievable! When Cupcake and I are finally getting along, she just moves to Scotland?

"Tomorrow night."
