Some Call It Destiny, I Call It a Coincidence

After leaving her North Caroline home, Zoe Meadows starts a new life in Ruislip, England. A surprise encounter with the boys causes her to have to make a decision. Who will she choose?


13. Chapter 13

We stayed like that, me wrapped up in his muscular arms silently crying, for a few minutes. I was eventually able to get control of my emotions again and I pulled away. "I’m sorry. Thank you." I spoke slowly to be sure that my voice would not crack.

"Love, you don't need to apologize for something so simple. It was nothing. I'm here for you whenever you need a shoulder to cry on."

"You mean chest." I pointed to the tear stained spot on his shirt, laughing at how ridiculous it looked. He looked down to the spot drying on his shirt and began to laugh with me. I felt bad for putting him in this situation but, it was nice to know that he was truly here for me.

"Would you be alright with going back to my place so I can change?"

"You mean you don't want to walk around London in a tear stained shirt? I heard it's an up-and-coming trend." I laughed even harder at my terrible joke. My mood had definitely made a 180 and I'm glad it did, this "not-a-date" date would not have been terrible if I was still upset- I also would've also felt terrible after.

Liam grabbed my hand and started pulling me in the direction of his house, or what I guessed was the direction of his place. "Come on." He said pulling my arm and jokingly jogging with me following behind. As we turned the corner he looked over his shoulder, looking me in the eyes, and right as he was turning his head around we smashed into a group of girl; the few that we actually crashed into let out a yelp or a shriek. Liam moaned while rubbing his head, opened his eyes, and immediately looked over at me with a worried expression. "Zoe, oh my, Zoe? Are you alright? I'm so sorry. Did you hit your head? Are you oka-"

"Liam, I am fine." I said while grabbing his hand to stop him. Relief washed over his face before asking if I was okay one more time. In reply I just nodded.

"Oh. My. God!" One girl screamed while hitting the friend closest to her on the arm repeatedly.

"It's Liam Payne!" A few more joined in with Screaming Girl #1. One girl just fainted into anothers arms.

"Shhhhhh! Please, please, please be quiet. If you can do that for me I will sign anything for you and take pictures with all of you. Please, please, just stop being so loud." Liam lifted the hood of his jacket up while pulling his glasses out of his pocket. I was hidden behind him so the "Directioners" didn't notice me. He turned around after standing lending me a hand. Once I was up he began to sign phone cases, papers, and anything they asked him to along with taking multiple photos.

While one was waiting she looked over at me. "Hey, you're Zoe right? You're so beautiful! Are you and Liam dating? Oh, I'm Katelyn by the way." She stuck her hand out and I shook it.

"Thank you and no, we are not dating." I laughed at her ridiculous question.

"Oh... You two would be so cute together! Can you sign this for me please? I wanna be able to say that I got Zoe Meadows autograph before she started dating Liam." I signed her paper then realizing that she knew my whole name.

"Katelyn, can I ask you how you found out my name?" I asked while laughing at how absurd it probably sounded. I always found it weird how this specific fandom could figure out any personal information they wanted to.

"Well I saw you on the news this morning and a bunch of Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr posts about you and I read your name somewhere." Katelyn smiled acting as if it was completely normal to tell someone how you figured out their name in less than 24 hours of being "famous". I didn't really know what to do so I smiled politely. "Have you checked your Twitter or Instgram yet? You are gaining so many followers. When I went to follow you on both I think you had a couple thousand on each."

'Whoa..., I don't even know what to say to that." I was dumbfounded, why would they all follow a nobody like me? I've been seen with the boys for a day, I shouldn't matter to these people.

"Check for yourself.  And I know that you are gonna get this alot but, uh, here’s my number, Twitter, and Instagram..." After handing me a small piece of paper she scribbled on at the last second and then stepped up to Liam holding out the same paper she had me sign and her phone’s camera app open.

"Okay, that was everyone right?" Liam asked, looking around at the group of girls all nodding. "Alright, thank you for your support! I love you all so much!" The fainting girl who had become conscious while he was signing and taking pictures fainted, again. "Um, alright. Come on Zoe, lets go." He grabbed my hand and we continued to head to his place.

"Bye Liam!" Screamed one of the girls from the group. I saw him wince and sped up a little, causing me to also.

"Didn't you say something about not screaming or being loud to them?" I asked sarcastically.

"Yes, now come on. I don't want to be mobbed."

"Liam!" More fans yelled sporadically running over to us trying to get his attention and get him to stop.

"Do you trust me?" He asked while tightening his grip on my hand.

"Ya, of course I do. Why?"

Instead of replying he pulled me around the corner and turned into the first alley we came to then continued to run until we were on the other side of a huge garbage bin. There was little light in the alley so, it was perfect for hiding-minus the horrid smell from the trash. I tried breathing through my mouth but, me being the world's worst breather ever, I started choking.

"Are you okay?" He lightly patted my back while looking back and forth to see if anyone had followed us.

"Ya. Just c-can't breathe." I replied struggling to get enough air to say a simple sentence. My breathing went back to normal after a few deep breaths of gross, dead body smelling air. A rat or really big mouse-or cockroach- caught my attention as it ran right by our feet. Before thinking twice about the consequences, I began screaming. Liam's hand cover my mouth, muffling my scream, while he turned his body to face mine instead of keeping his back against the wall.

"Zoe, it's okay. It was just a rat, it didn't even touch you. Calm down." His body was so close to mine. His head inches away from mine. His deep brown eyes locked contact with mine, our noses almost touching, and his lips so close I could feel his breath on my cheek. Goosebumps appeared, covering my entire body. He took his hand off my mouth and put it on the other side of my head, trapping me between him in the wall. He inched his head closer until our lips barely touching. He looked from my lips, back to my eyes, and back again to my lips as if checking that I was okay with what was about to happen. In response I slightly tilted my head and wrapped my arms around his neck; I wasn't really sure what I was doing exactly so I just went off of what I'd see in movies, also from what Katie has told me. I began to relax when a high pitched scream echoed in the alley.

“Shit.” He murmured. “Ready to run again?” I  wasn’t particularly pleased by having to run again but, this is their lifestyle and if I want to be in it I have to deal with it.
