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.


25. Hotel hunting and Lex


After talking to Uncle Si, I decided I had to make things up for Cupcake, so I needed to know which her hotel was. I went to Ni's room and knocked. "Who is it?" He sang. That brought the flashback from when Cupcake and I were being chased by fans came to my mind. That had been where it all had started. Cupcake and I had been actually talking for about two minutes. Then, I remembered when I had brought her flowers, how we'd just talked. The leprechaun sang again bringing me back to reality.

"Oh, it's me."

"No kidding." He said.

"It's Zayn."

"Alright, then." He said and opened the door. "Hiya, mate."

"What is Cupcake's hotel?"

"Can't tell you man."

"What? Why?"

"Like I told Jen, a gentleman never tells." He simply said and shrugged.

"What if you're a leprechaun? Could you tell me then."

He laughed. "That's just what she said. I could tell you, but I won't."

"Why not?" By this point, my requests were more demanding than asking, but I didn't care, I needed to see her.

"Because she's hurt."

"But I have to apologize!"

"Well, look for her. I can't tell you."

"Why not?"

"Just go! It's not that far. I'll give you a clue." He said and I nodded. "Academia." He simply said and shut the door. "I won't say another word!" He said through the door.

I groaned and went out to have some fresh air. What did Academia mean? Is it a place? A hotel? A restaurant? What can it be? I began wandering through nowhere in particular and found myself being chased by fans. I stooped and took pictures and everything. Then, I heard some of them had Italian accent, so I decided I would ask. "If I say Academia, what's the first thing that come to your minds?"

They hesitated for a second. "The gallery, why?"

"Just some mental trick Niall's playing on me." I said and thanked them before leaving. It wasn't long before I went back running. "Where's that?"

They lead me into some sort of bus called Vaporetto. It was cool.

They told me that they had seen Li and Cupcake and that they were planning a date. Maybe Li had panicked, but maybe cupcake wasn’t so angry at me. I hoped for the second one.

We hopped off the Vaporetto and I didn't know where to start, but then I spotted a hotel. I ran towards it and rushed into the lobby. I asked the man is she was there. I gave him a description, but then I took out my phone and showed him a picture. He nodded and told me what her room was.

I took the elevator and stopped on her floor. I was about to knock, when the door opened and Li walked out. "Hello, mate." He said when he saw me.

"What are you doing here?" I asked.

"When Jen ran out, I went after her and we came to the hotel."

"Alright, then what was that about a date?"

"I panicked! I'm sorry, okay?" He said.

"Can I see her?" I asked. I needed to fix this.

He hesitated for a second. He went back into her room and came out. "Yeah, she's just upset. Please, don't hurt her now. She's not okay."

"Was it my fault?"

"No, none of us knew. Just don't make things worse. She already wants to go home."

I nodded and walked into her room. I saw she was on the sofa, bracing herself and wiping some tears from her face and taking a sip of water.

"Simon called. He almost killed me when I told him I got drunk."

"Yeah, I'm not really fond of drunk people."

"I know. He told me."



Simon had told him about Lex? "What did he tell you?"

"Your brother. That he got into a fight and he was killed."

"Yeah, Lex was always that."

"You and him were really close?"

"Not much, he was older and thought he was so much mature, though he really wasn't. He didn't care about anything but himself, or that's what I thought. Turned out he sort of cared about me. I miss him, he wasn't that much of a good older brother."

"Well, now you have Li." He said trying to change the subject.

"Yeah, I guess that's a good change. I mean, I have now great guys and Uncle Simon and everything."

"I'm really sorry about your brother and your parents and for what Harry did and for making you come and all, I swear I had nothing to do with it."

"It's okay, it's been fun though." He looked at me like I was insane.


I laughed. "Watching you fall into the water, calling you Fruit loop, you calling me cupcake, pretending to love each other, Paul's inner compass, the fan chase, arguing with you about food and wine, everything." I realized he was the main one that made me laugh, so I just hugged him. "Thank you, Fruit loop."
