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.


22. Hotels and reactions


I woke up and took a shower. I called room service to get something to eat. There was a knock on the door, so I opened the door for the room service, but I found a little blond leprechaun outside my door, frowning. “You didn’t  sing who it was.” He nagged and pouted.

“Do you want to go out and we try it again?” I asked and ne shook his head.

He came in and we sat on the little living room there was. “Are you leaving us?” He asked.


“Are you leaving us? The lads and me?”

“No, it’s just-“ I started. “It’s complicated.”

“Is it because of Zayn?”

“No, it’s because of all the pity you feel towards me. You took me in and you’ve taken care of me and you make me go to trips and pretend to love a guy I hate with all my heart because he hates me that much too.”

“What are you talking about? Zayn doesn’t hate you.”

“He said my parents were lucky to be dead so they didn’t have to deal with me.”

“What? When?”

“After going to Harry’s Bar. When Liam and Paul got him to our room and he was yelling and Liam told him to shut up because he could wake me up, thing he did, but then he just said it, so merciless and graphic even I believed it.”

“No, Jen, you can’t believe that. Its just things he say when he’s drunk. Look, he really cares about you, he just doesn’t know how to say he’s sorry. We all know what really happened to his nose, all of us but him. But trust me when I tell you he cares. He’s a nice lad, he’s funny and nice and romantic and-“

“A liar.” I finished. “I just need some space, alright? I can’t be 24/7 with Fruit loop without trying killing him, especially when he’s asleep.”

There was a knock on the door again and it was finally my breakfast. Niall and I had breakfast. We were talking about nothing at all, when his phone buzzed. He read something.

“I have to go. Li needs me.”

“It’s alright. Thanks for coming. How did you find me, anyway?”

“A gentleman never tells.”

“Does a leprechaun tell?”

He hesitated for a second, “No.” He said and left.



After the fatty old man incident, I found out that Cupcake was not staying at our hotel anymore. So, I asked all of the boys to help me find her. I wrote her name down on a piece of paper, because I’d probably ask for ‘cupcake’ or ‘brain washer’. We went to all the hotels in Venice, until Liam told us to go back to our hotel.

We were all sitting on the floor of Li’s room. “Well, I think we made no progress at all.” Lou said.

“I wouldn’t say that.” Said Niall.

“How so?” Li asked.

“She’s still really mad at you.”

“You found her?”

“Yeah. She said she just needs some space. And give her some time, Zayn, what you said is not just gonna go away overnight.”

“You’re right.” I said. We chatted for some time until they all left. I realized I was still on my PJs, so I opened the closet and grabbed some jeans and a tee, but I realized Cupcake’s jacket was there. I thought I’d have Niall give it to her later.

I changed and heard a knock on the door. I opened and it was Cupcake. I was  so happy she’d come to see me after what I’d done, that I just hugged her and spun her around. She didn’t say anything, so I did. “I’m really sorry, I swear to everything I didn’t mean it. I was mad and I say stupid, stupid things when I’m drunk, please forgive me.”

“Zayn, I-“ She started. She said my name again. I was worried, so I did whatever came into my mind, which was –to my luck– kissing her.
