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.


40. Unknown facts and temporary farewell


I couldn't believe he would think that. Well, maybe he shouldn't have come. Tears were threatening to roll down, but I contained myself. I wouldn't shed another tear for him. Not one more.

So I sucked it up and faked a smile. "Hey, we're out of cereal, so I don't know what you want for breakfast." I told them.

We all gathered in the kitchen and I grabbed Batman. I would have to buy him a tag.

Harry offered to make pancakes, so we all agreed. The kitchen wasn't so big, so Louis, Liam and Niall went to the living room. I started helping Harry to cook the pancakes.

"You should go to the living room, Zayn. Kitchen's too small for three." Harry said. Fruit loop looked at me, questioning Harry's words, but I just nodded.

"It's too small." I said, looking down. He sighed and went out, annoyed at me.

"Are you alright, Jen?" Harry asked after he placed a pancake in a plate.

I shrugged my shoulders. "I guess." I placed another pancake in the same plate.

Harry shook his head. "You're not. I know you." He looked at me as he turned the stove off. "What happened?"

I sighed. "When I was going to tell Zayn and Liam that we were out of cereal, I heard Zayn say that maybe coming all the way here was not worth it."

"What were the exact words?"

"Maybe it wasn't worth it coming." I quoted Fruit loop and Harry nodded. "What do you think?" I asked him.

He hesitated for a second. "I think you have to talk about it. Only you can figure it out and work it out."

"What do you think about long distance relationships?"

"It can work out, but it’s hard. If you love someone enough, it works out. You make it work out." Harry said, very sure of himself.

"How do you know so much about long distance relationships?" I asked, frankly surprised by his wisdom over this specific topic.

"I have a girlfriend." He answered as he shrugged.

Wait, he what? "How come you never told me?"

"Well, you never asked." He answered.

I turned away, defeated, and went into the living room to get the boys and my cat.



Breakfast was awkward, the usual, but this time Cupcake was learning things she didn't know about us. Like Harry's girlfriend, for example. For some reason we had never talked about Shaden when Cupcake had been with us.

Maybe we could have a long distance relationship, but I was begging she would come with us to London.

Since, Cupcake and Harry had made breakfast, Louis and I had to wash the dishes, because Niall and Liam were going to fix everything for our departure. I kept on begging it would be the six of us.

Lou and I didn't talk much while doing our chores, but we small talked about how weird things had been since Cupcake came into our lives.

We were done and Liam was already annoying me with stupid airport band procedures. Maybe Liam was what got the worse out of me during trips, but I couldn't blame him for looking after us.

As I had feared, she was not coming, but she came with us to the airport. The boys left to let us talk.

"There was no way, huh?" I said and she looked down. "Just promise you'll come in a month."

"I'll give this place a try. Maybe it is my home. But I'll call."

I nodded. "You better. If anything happens, you know you can come to us."

"I know. Thanks, Zayn." I smiled when I heard her say my name, because it was special.

"No problem, Jen." I said proudly because I had remembered her name. People were gathering near us, so we had to say goodbye quickly. She kissed my cheek and I kissed hers.

"Call me when you land." She said and started walking towards the car where Marcus was waiting for her. I waited until she was out of sight. My smile never faded until we were inside the plane. I kept seeing in my mind when she had rolled down her window and had waved at me, mouthing to take care. And then she had turned up the radio and had laughed when Marcus had switched the station. Then she had rolled her window up and gave me one last smile, though it was just for a month. One long month.
