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.


39. Some time and cereal chase


Cupcake started petting Batman and she calmed herself down while I rubbed the hand the cat had just bit.

"You see why I can't go back? Every time we're together we fight."

"We used to fight all the time at first. But then, we didn't in Barcelona. And now we do again."

"I don't know what to tell you." She said, rubbing her face with the sleeves of her sweater.

"Think about it." I said, absentmindedly pushing things more, which got me a glaring from her.

"Give me some time, Zayn." She said. I hate when she uses my name because it's just when things are complicated or sad or something like that.

"Why do you always use my name in times like this. All the other times I'm Fruit loop."

"Because I'm being serious right now. You never used my name. I don't think you even know what my name is."

"Of course I do." I lied. Damn, I had to remember! Louis called her Jo, so it starts with a J. Jenny? No, that's a song from The Click Five. Jennifer? No. Jenna? Yeah, it seems like it. "It's Jenna." I said.

She let out a laugh. "Nope, that's not my name, but it was close." She said between laughs.

"Jenny?" I asked and she shook her head, unable to stop the laughter. "Jennifer?" I asked again and she laughed even more.

"It's Jen." She said once she could speak again. Remember that, Malik! Jen, Jen, Jen. Easy to remember.

I stood up and offered her my hand to stand up, but the cat bit me again. "Batman! Do not bite Fruit loop." She said took my hand. I was lucky the cat was small and it didn't have many teeth. I wouldn't like being his toy if he had many teeth.



The boys had gone to a hotel because we wouldn't fit in my house. Harry had wanted to stay with Batman or to take him to the hotel, but Liam made him leave too and promised that they would come in the morning for breakfast. Liam knew how to control Harry. He was a brain washer.

After the boys left, I was sitting on the couch with the TV off just thinking about what Fruit loop had said. What if this wasn't really my home? I thought about it for hours, when I finally ended a mental debate with myself saying that my home was back in Washington and there was no way I could have it back, but that I would try to make this my home and I would go visit them as soon as I could.

I stood up from the couch, taking Batman with me. I got into my room and made a quick bed for the cat. I got inside my bed and instantly fell asleep. I woke up to knocking on the front door. I groaned and got up and ran down. I opened the door and found the boys. Niall came in and walked straight into the kitchen. Harry ran inside and started looking for Batman. Liam and Louis said hello and followed Niall into the kitchen to stop Niall from devouring my entire kitchen. Fruit loop stood there and stared at the floor. "I thought about yesterday." I said, trying to break the silence after Liam dragged Niall into the living room with Louis keeping Niall from holding on to something as he was holding the box of Cheerios cereal.

"What did you think?" He asked.

"That my home is always going to be in Washington, but that I'm going to try to make a home here."

"So you're not coming?"

"I'm visiting."

"It's not the same."

"Well, we're going back tomorrow. How long do you plan on spending here before coming to visit?"

"I don't know, Zayn. A month, maybe."

"A month?"

"I told you took too long to come."

"Are you going to start again?"

"You're the one who wants me to move to London."

"I don't see why it's hard."

"Just give me some time, alright?" I said, exasperated at his insistence. Why couldn't he understand? I walked into the living room and sat on the couch next to Liam. Harry was on the floor petting Batman and Louis was next to him. Niall was on the couch next to the one Liam and I were sitting in. Fruit loop sat next to Niall and grabbed the cereal box from him and throwing a bunch into his mouth.

"You should get a bigger living room." Louis said, as he exanimated the living room.

"Still sassy, Louis?" I asked, fearing that this day was going to be with a sassy Louis.

He shook his head. "No, I was just making an observation. Trying to start a conversation, you know? Because the awkward silence here is seriously uncomfortable."

"Tell me about it." I mumbled under my breath. I sighed and looked around. "I'm hungry." I said out of the blue.

"See? She gets me!" Niall yelled at Fruit loop while he stole the cereal back.

"Hey! You're finishing my cereal! Give it back before you eat it all!" I complained.

"No." Niall said, smiling.

"Leprechaun, I'm not in the best mood. Give me the cereal back or you'll regret it. You have five seconds." I threatened.

He didn't say a word; he simply started running up the stairs. I jumped form the couch and began following him, shouting to give me the cereal back. We went into all of the rooms of the house, Niall throwing some cereal on the floor and at me, making us both laugh. We were in the kitchen now and I had grabbed a pan as my weapon. Also to catch the cereal, but that was an extra feature my weapon had. Louis and Harry came into the kitchen, cheering both of us. We all started laughing when Niall was going to throw more cereal but there was none of it left. I went into the living room quietly and heard Fruit loop talking to Liam. I decided to go back when I heard what Fruit loop said. "Maybe it wasn't worth it coming."
