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.


37. Batman and hapiness


After rushing out of Heathrow, I was finally home. I opened the door and shut it closed. The lads ran down the stairs as I fell on the couch. Louis walked to me, glaring at me. "What are you doing here?" He asked. "I thought you were staying there."

"Yeah, she's better off without me."

"Niall told us she missed you. A lot." Liam said, sitting next to me.

"Yeah, she's got Niall now." I spat with absentminded disgust.

Harry let out a laugh. "Are you serious, Zayn? Niall went there to investigate how she had been doing. Not to steal her from you!" He said.

"What?" I asked, really confused.

"We sent Niall to help!" Louis yelled at me. Liam slapped my head and I let out a groan.

"Alright, I messed up! I'm sorry."

"This is all about you, Zayn. Everything has been about you." Liam said.



He left. He didn't even step in and he left. The bastard came and got my hopes up and fucking left! I hit my head with a wall and Niall let out a laugh.

"Don't kill your brain cells, Jen, it's not like you've got much left." He joked as I was walking to the couch with my hand on my forehead.

"Shut it, leprechaun! You sound like Harry sometimes and now you also sound like Louis on his sassy days."

He nodded. "Yeah, he has those days." He said absentmindedly. I laughed at the memory of Louis's days of extreme sassiness. Suddenly, the cat that had come in yesterday showed up. "Oh, you have a cat! It's lovely!"

"And back to Harry you go. I should start calling you curly stripes." I said, laughing at his reaction to the cat. He was petting it and taking pictures with it.

"What's its name?" He asked.

"It's not mine. It came here yesterday. I'm considering on keeping it."

"It could be your and Zayn's love pet." He suggested.

I looked down at the image of Fruit loop walking out the door as fast as he had come in. "Yeah, I don't think that's happening."

He thought for a second, his hands never leaving the cat. "Well, then keep the cat and call him Zayn."

"I don't even call Zayn that, and it's his name."

"Fine, call it Fruit loop." He said.

"No, it's been with me through the worse. Batman!" I shouted.

"What?" He asked, puzzled.

"It reminds me of Liam, so I should call it Batman, because Liam loves Batman." I explained and he nodded.



I was back in Glasgow, and this time without so much trouble and the lads were with me. Marcus drove us and this time we didn't get lost, luckily. I was ready to apologize and hopefully things would turn out right.

We knocked on the door and a cat walked out through the window.

"No! Batman ran away!" I heard Niall shout in panic and look through the window. He happily waved at us and came to open the door. I noticed he smiled at Harry and stretched out his arms to him. I turned and Harry had the cat. "You saved Batman!"

"Batman?" I asked, looking at Liam. Niall walked in with us following him and we got into the living room, sitting on the couches and on the floor.

"Jen! We have visitors!" Niall happily sang. I loved that leprechaun.

Cupcake walked out from what I supposed was the kitchen. All the lads but Niall and me ran to hug her. When they were done, I noticed Harry and Niall wouldn't leave the cat alone.

"Why did you call your cat Batman?" I asked her.

"It reminds me of Liam." She said as she shrugged and sat on the floor next to Ni and Harry and patted the cat.

"She wouldn't take any of my suggestions." Ni complained. I laughed.

"I bet you suggested Nando's." Louis said with sass.

"Are you in one of your sassy days, Louis?" She asked.

"It's none of your business, Jo." Louis replied with sass.

"Yo? You're a sassy rapper or something? Like 'The Wanted'?" She said. Louis glared at him and before he could kill her, I grabbed her arm and dragged her  into what I found out was the kitchen.

"Well, I haven't really expected to see you here." She said, looking down.

"I'm really sorry. I just had much too trouble to get here." I apologized.

"That's not an excuse." She spat.

"I know it's not, but that's why I came. I’m really sorry about that scene I made.” I said looking at her, but then I realized her forehead was red. “What happened to your forehead?” I asked.

She touched her forehead and laughed. “Nothing.” She said and looked down. We stood there, in silence for what seemed hours, until she finally said. “Are you happy?”

“Happy?” I asked, confused with her question.

“Yeah, happy. That I called. That you came, that you all are here. Are you happy about that?” She explained.

I did get the question, I just didn’t get where it had come from. “I guess. I’m happy you called, that’s for sure. I didn’t really know what to expect when I came here. I thought you were at Simon’s house, but you weren’t and Marcus seemed to have fun with me. I’m happy I came because I know my mates are the best people I could ever ask for. I’m happy I met you because I’ve had so much fun, though it was all hate at first.”

“If Liam was here he’d say you just get cranky because you just flew.” She said, trying to light the mood. And I had the sudden urge to kiss her, so I did.
