One. Good. Mistake. *Zayn Malik Love*

Figuring out she had a one-night stand with Zayn Malik, a band member of One Direction, Charlie is then told she must go on tour with the band for her magazine internship.
But Zayn doesn't make it easy for Charlie to forget that night or him, no matter what Charlie does.


9. ::Chapter Nine::


I leaned back against some equipment as I watched the boys practice, singing a song called “One Way or Another”, and I’d be lying if I said they weren’t good live and especially with this song. I let my eyes wander around the Metro Radio Arena of Newcastle, watching a bunch of guys set up for the concert tomorrow night.

I awkwardly applauded as they finished up the song, moving onto the next, but I watched as Zayn abruptly left the stage which I later could tell did not make some people happy. I nervously watched as he began to make his way to me.

I was definitely caught off guard when he grabbed my arm as he passed me and dragged me down to an empty hallway away from the stage.

“Er, Zayn, what are you doing? You’re supposed to be out there,” I pointed in the direction of the stage, hearing the other boys’ voices calling for Zayn to come back.

“I want you to understand, that no matter what you see or hear for the next week or so, that I did not use you that night,” Zayn whispered, his voice tired and ragged. “I don’t know what came over me that night but I would never take advantage of a drunken girl. I had my reasons for what I did.”

I raised my brows, curious, “Want to further explain your reasons?”

He shook his head, “No, they’re my reasons. But please, Charlie, understand that I am truly sorry.”

I jerked my arm out of his grasp and looked directly at him, tapping my foot, “Yah, yah, I know. You’ve made that quite clear with your brooding mood lately. Grow up; it was a mistake, get over it.”

Zayn’s composure crumpled and he suddenly rested his forehead against mine, his eyes closed. I just stood there, unsure of what to do, my arms against his chest to keep him from crushing me as he just stood there, his breathing uneven.

“Hey there, Zayn, you’re seriously needed,” A female voice called out, saving me from some serious awkwardness and I stepped away from Zayn, looking at Lou.

Zayn fixed himself and stepped away from me, heading off to the stage. Lou remained in her position, her wise eyes resting on me. I stood there, trying not to look guilty or really confused, but failed.

“He’s been through some rough times, breaking up with Perrie,” Lou quietly spoke to me. “But, Charlie, don’t make this harder for him.”

I narrowed my eyes, “I’m not making anything harder for him. He decides to come and talk to me for no reason, all the time. I don’t know why and I don’t care, I’m just here for one thing and that is to complete my assignment.”

I turned on my heel and walked away from her, heading off to nowhere in particular, just needing some fresh air from all of this. As soon as I exited the arena, getting out through the back door, I let my own composure drop and slammed my hand into a wooden box next to me.

“Ow, Goddamit,” I cursed as I pulled my hand out, multiple slivers sticking out of my right hand. “This is so not what I need right now. I should’ve never taking this stupid job.”

A door opened behind me and Liam’s voice spoke up, “It’s only your first day and you’re already abusing things.”

I looked at him, tired, “Sorry…things have just been so weird and confusing lately. I never expected an opportunity like this to happen, and I’m just so unprepared and I’m really unsure why my boss thought I could do this.”

Liam shrugged his shoulders, “Neither do I but I do know how to use a first-aid kit,” he gestured to my wounded hand. “Come back in and I’ll clean it up so you can use it write better.”

I didn’t bother to fight or dismiss his help and followed him back in.

“Thanks Liam,” I quietly said to him as we walked back in.

His eyes twinkled brightly as he replied, “No problem.”
