24. What Counts

As soon as we get to Zayn's flat he starts asking me about Jeremy. "We aren't talking about this," I tell him as he puts on a kettle of tea. There's a force in my voice that makes him take it seriously. 

"Okay, okay. I get it. But then we're talking about something else," He says. 

"Fine, I'll play along," I reply, sitting on his couch. 

"I got the part right!" He exclaims.

"That's right! You did," I smile.

"So what's my reward?" He asks.

"You don't get one. You were still looking at me," I point out. He pouts. 

"That's true. But I did get a reward at the end of the song," He says.

"Which was?" I ask, completely oblivious.

"Think about it. What was at the end?" He questions, a smile playing on his lips. After a long minute of thinking, realization strikes.

"Oh," I manage. He laughs. "That was nothing," I shake my head.

"What do you mean?" He asks.

"It was for the audience. Doesn't count," I shrug my shoulders. 

"Of course it counts," He counters.

"Nope," I pop the P.

"Well then show me something that does," He crosses his arms over his chest. 

"Fine. Close your eyes," I say opening a water bottle and taking a sip. He closes his eyes. I lean towards him slowly and then really quickly, I pour the cold water on his head. His eyes flash open and I grin wildly. 

"That counted," I laugh, beginning to run away from him. 

He chases after me all around his flat until finally he catches me. "What are you going to do now?" I ask, smiling.

"This," He says slowly before taking my face in his hand and planting a gentle kiss on my lips. I pull back after a moment and sink my head in his chest. The kiss was nice, don't get me wrong, but Jeremy was haunting my thoughts at the moment and I was already upset because of tonight's events. 

"What's wrong?" He asks me, worried, as he tightens his grip around me. I shake my head keeping my arms close to my face and chest. 

"I just um... I'm tired, that's all," I reply after a moment of composing myself. I pull back and go grabthe water bottle, taking a sip before sinking into the couch. 

"We both know I don't believe that," He says, sitting next to me. I sigh, and drop my head in his lap, focusing on deep breaths. 

"Can we please just watch a film? I don't do emotions," I complain, sitting up.

"That sounds good," He replies. We choose a film to watch and grab blankets to cover ourselves with. The last thing I remember before going to sleep is moving closer to Zayn's warmth and intertwining my fingers with his.
