36. Zalex

In the morning I forget where I am. I begin to move, but find myself locked in a position. I open my eyes to see the skin of Zayn's neck. I pull my head back, the only thing I have control of really. 

I try to untangle my feet but to no avail, they stay interlocked with his. I attempt to unlock his arms from around me, but they tighten. I take the opportunity to see how I feel really. My side hurts a little, but it's a dulling throbbing that can easily  be ignored. My left arm, which is the one that he punched twice, is extremely weak and sore. 

It comes to my attention that Zayn is actually quite awake and that's why I can't escape his embrace. His eyes open and he traces my face with his eyes. "I won't lie to you Zayn okay? My side hurts a little, but I can ignore the pain. And my arm is really weak. But other than that I am completely fine," I tell him.

He raises his eyebrows, but I can see that his eyes are dark and serious. "Okay," He answers finally.

"So will you kiss me now?" I ask him, sounding like a little kid asking his mother for a toy. He chuckles.

"Weren't you the one who told me that we kiss too much?" He asks.

"Just shut up and kiss me," I tell him. He presses his lips to mine, a smile on his lips. I'm glad he has lightened up a small amount since last night. I move so that I am straddling him and leaning down to kiss him. From a distance we hear a knock on the door. We stop kissing and he sits up, sending me backwards slightly, but catching me before I fall. He grabs a jumper, pulling it over his head before heading out to the door and grabbing a knife.

"Zayn!" I call after him, a step behind him. Before he opens the door he pulls me behind him and hides the knife.

He opens the door hesitantly and we see Liam standing there. Zayn instantly relaxes. "Amusement park today?" Liam asks. 

"I don't thin-"Zayn starts to say.

"Yeah, we're up for it." I reply excitedly, cutting off Zayn. 

"Great! We're leaving in an hour," He responds.

"Is Amber awake yet?" I ask.

"I don't think so," He answers. Zayn and I say goodbye to Liam. 

"We aren't going," Zayn states it as a fact as he goes to put the knife back.

"Well I don't know about you, but I'm going," I tell him.

"No Alex. You're hurt. You don't need to walk around all day and go on rides that can make you worse," He says.

"Please," I pout.

"No," He shakes his head.

"Please Zayn?" I walk over to him and wrap my arms around his neck. He sighs. "Yes!" I exclaim, pulling his jumper off of his head and over mine.

"What are you doing?" He asks.

"I have to go to my flat to get clothes for the day," I answer, heading to his room to grab a pair of his sweats. 

"I'm coming with you," He states, pulling on a different jumper and another pair of sweats.

"Zayn you don't have to do that," I tell him, but I know that after last night arguing is useless. I release my hair from it's bun and shake it out before grabbing my car keys. 

"Well aren't you two cute," Niall says as Zayn and I walk downstairs together, his arm wrapped around my waist. I lean all of my weight on Zayn so he doesn't go after Niall.

"Not today Niall please," I ask him politely. Zayn sends a glare to Niall and Niall apologizes sincerely. 

Zayn and I head to my and Amber's flat to grab clothes. I have him wait in the living room while I head to my bedroom to change and pack clothes. "Nice panties," I hear Zayn behind me. I was only in my bra and underwear at this point. I had just finished putting on a bra. 

"Get out," I hit him. He flops onto my bed. 

"Why don't we spend any time in this bed?" He asks.

"What are you doing Zayn?" I question him, pulling on a pair of skinny jeans. I'm facing away from him, but only because I don't want him to see the bruises on me. I pull a camisole over my head and walk into the bathroom. I start putting makeup on and apply some concealer to my collarbone where the hickey still is. 

"You don't need makeup," Zayn whines, appearing in the mirror behind me. I ignore him and finishing adding my liner. I put on an over shirt above my tank top and then Zayn's jumper over that. 

"So this is what has happened to all of my clothes?" I hear Zayn ask. He's looking down at a pile of his clothes - the ones that I had been borrowing for the past couple of days. 

"I guess so," I laugh, slipping a pair of Vans. I go into Amber's room and grab her some clothes for the day. "You ready to go?" I ask Zayn who is now holding the pile of clothes in his arms.

He nods and begins walking out of the door. I follow right behind him, locking the flat on the way out. We head back to the boys' lofts, stopping at Dunkin' Donuts on the way. "I really don't want you going to the amusement park," Zayn says, biting his nail.

"I know. And if I was hurt worse than I would let you coddle me all day and we could stay home. But I hate even thinking about Jeremy and going out to be normal will help us both," I respond, looking straight ahead.

"Fine. But stay in my sight," He says.

"Okay," I reply. I would protest but after everything that happened last night, I'm kind of glad that Zayn is being so protective. 

Back at the lofts Zayn heads straight upstairs to get dressed, but not until I'm in the sight of Harry and Amber. "Is it just me or is he being clingy today?" Harry asks me, referring to Zayn. 

"He's being protective," I correct Harry.

"What happened?" Amber asks. Amber and I head into Harry's room so she can change and we can talk alone.

"Jeremy ruined our night to say the least," I tell her.

"Oh my god, what happened?" She exclaims. I explain to her everything that happened and show her my bruises. She pulls me into a giant hug and yells at me for wanting to go to the amusement park. "I agree with Zayn. I don't want you to go," She tells me.

"Well that's too dang bad, because I'm going." I reply. "I'll take it easy," I say even though we both know I won't. 

"Alex," She complains as I begin to walk out.

"Amber," I say in the same tone, shutting the door behind me. I head up to Zayn's loft and head into his room. 

"Wow!" I exclaim, my hand flying up to my eyes when I see Zayn standing naked in his room. 

"Ok, I have boxer shorts on," He says. Slowly I uncover my eyes to find him standing right in front of me.

"Maybe you should close your door when you're changing," I laugh, kissing his cheek and then moving to sit on the bed. I watch as for the first time in days, I don't pick out his clothes for the day. 

I notice that first he reaches for a blue shirt, but after looking back at me picks out a red V neck instead. Today he's wearing a red V neck, dark jeans, red and white Jordans, and a black jacket. "Here, put this on," He throws his red and white Letter jacket at me that says Malik on the back. 

"Why?" I ask.

"So I can show the whole world you're with me," He answers.

"They already know," I laugh.

"So then there's nothing wrong with it," He smiles. I shake my head, taking off his jumper and putting on his Letter Jacket. He comes to sit next to me and we take a picture together. 

"What are you doing with that?" I ask him. I watch as he puts it on Twitter. "Zayn!" I reprimand him. 

"Look. You're already trending," He says pointing out tweets to me:

@ZaynMalik OMG I'm going 2 die u 2 r so adorbs!

@ZaynMalik wats ur couple name? 

@ZaynMalik ur couple name should be Zalex

@ZaynMalik #Zalex is amazing

@ZaynMalik cnt wait 2 hear more abt #Zalex

The list of tweets continued to pop up and expand. "Zalex?" I ask Zayn.

"I guess that's what we are," He chuckles. I laugh shaking my head. "Alex, along with all of the love, the jealous fans send hate. Don't be affected by it okay?" He asks me unsurely. 

"Okay," I answer, giving him a hug while laughing. 

We wait a little while up here together and then start to head down to each floor, getting the rest of the boys with us as we go. I feel really bad for Niall who is the only one without a girl so we call up Autumn and Summer and they agree to come with us. 

We end up taking two of the vans and there ends up being 3 extra seats total between the two vehicles, so Zayn decides to make me lay down in the back of one of the vans so I take up three seats myself. "I don't want to lie down," I complain.

"You're lucky we're even going," Zayn replies. 

"Yea okay Zayn," Louis says.

"What?" Zayn asks.

"We all know who wears the pants in that relationship and it isn't you," Liam answers. I laugh out loud and Zayn grunts, crossing his arms over his chest. 

"Most certainly is!" Zayn argues. 

"It's okay babe," I tell Zayn, reaching for him while being a 'good little girl' and laying down. 

He pulls out his phone and goes on twitter sending out the tweet: 

Who wears the pants in this relationship? Me or @Alex_Sweet?

I laugh as the notification pops up on my phone that he tagged me in a tweet. There are immediate responses on the tweet : 

"@Zayn Malik Who wears the pants in this relationship? Me or @Alex_Sweet?" deff Alex, srry Zayn

@ZaynMalik I thnk @Alex_Sweet srry

@ZaynMalik doesnt matter as long as u love @Alex_Sweet & she <3 u

@Alex_Sweet is dominant #womenrule

@ZaynMalik either way #Zalex is cute

"It's okay Zayn," I laugh while reading each tweet. I get like five thousand more followers in the span of five minutes. We pull up to the amusement park and climb out together, Zayn taking my hand.

"Ughh I don't like publicizing this," I tell him, a fake smile on my lips.

"Then pretend it's just me," He whispers in my ear. Amber and Harry walk beside us so that I can talk to Amber. 

"Don't let her take risks today. Well, don't let her take risks any day, but especially not today," Amber tells Zayn.

"Wouldn't dream of it," Zayn answers her seriously. I can already tell I'm not going to have much fun today.
