Hoping for love

Karlie was waiting for a chance to finally fit in at her new school. After moving 4 times in 1 year and never fitting in she wants this time to be different. When first laying eyes on Liam she can't concentrate. What happens when he talks to her. Will she finally fit in or will everything he say just be a lie...


3. My walk with Zayn

Today I slept until 8:00. I couldn't get anymore sleep. I couldn't stop thinking about possible reasons why Liam left quickly yesterday. 

Maybe he had to do some homework. 

Maybe someone texted him during the movie and he rushed to their house. 

My thoughts were interrupted by my moms ringtone. 


"Hi sweety!"

I heard a lot of talking in the background. 

"Who's with you?"

"Your dad and a couple of people we work with."

"So why'd you call?"

"I wanted to check up on you."

"k I'm all right. Thanks for calling"

"Oh and before you go, our neighbor's son is gonna be around if you need him."

"Cool what's his name?"


"Interesting. So do you have his number to give me or something?"

"No but he's next door if you need him"

"k bye mom. Love you"

"love you too honey. Bye"

I hung up and sighed. I feel like going for a walk. I force myself to get out of my warm comfy bed and get dressed. 

When I opened the front door, I felt the cool air blow against my skin. It felt good. I took a step out and immediately heard a door slam. I looked in my neighbors yard and of course, Zayn was right there waving to me. He ran through my tall grass that hasn't been mowed in forever. He looked back at the grass when he reached me. "You need to cut your grass" he laughed. I laughed too and looked down at my feet.  

"So where you headed?" He asked me. "For a walk. I realized I didn't feel like staying in my house all day. So now I'm here." I say with a fake smile. "Mind if I come with you. I will probably be stuck in all day too." I nod and we start walking. 

I follow him mainly because I had no clue where I was going but I didn't want him to follow me because I will most likely walk into someone's yard. 

He lead me to a park bench and we sat down. I decided it was kinda awkward so I took out my phone and asked for his number. He took it and typed in his number. He said "I'll text you" and I nod. 

Zayn stood up and held out his hand. I grab it and stand up. He says "I need to show you something" he pulls me towards a tree. He lifts me up and puts me on a tree limb. He takes out a pocket knife and carved our names into a tree 'Karlie+Zayn' he jumped up next to me and we both admired his work. 

My phone went off. A text from Liam "where r u. I came to pick u up but ur not here" I frowned. I tell Zayn I have to leave and he looks down at his feet and sighs. "I'm sorry. It's Liam." He nods and sighs once again. He jumps off the tree and holds his arms out ready to catch me. I jump into his arms. And we walk home.
