Twisted (Sequel to Without You)

SEQUEL to Without You! Zayn Malik was just getting back on his feet, he was just accepting the fate that had happened to him and the one he loved Niall Horan. He had moved on, yes it was with a bad person, but he didn't see it like that. He wasn't ready for the news that escaped his new lovers lips, he wasn't ready for the news that would change everything.

-Zayn's POV-

 

 

 

Walking throughout the mall is more tiring than you would think, especially when you are with the one and only Louis Tomlinson. He has to stop at every store in the mall. He always gets off task and ends up shopping for himself. I know he doesn't mean to do that though, it's just how he is. We walked into what I was hoping was going to get the last store we shopped at today. We walked in to Hot Topic and a nice man greeted us.

 

"Hey! Welcome to Hot Topic! Everything is buy 1 get the other half off. If you need anything just yell!" He says skipping off to another part of the store. I love this store, they always make you feel like family. I watched as the man who greeted us talked with one of the other workers here. I found out his name was Junior. He is so nice. I was helping as best I could with Louis' plans for the party. He seemed to have something else on his mind though. I couldn't help but noticed Harry looked stressed and freaked out too. This isn't normal for Harry, earlier today he looked scared and freaked out, but now he looks even worse. What happened in the last few hours? Did Louis say something to him? I know they were talking earlier, I was hoping they were talking about something good. Or even becoming friends, I know that's a lot to ask for after everything that has happened. Louis is a hard guy to please, and when you get on his bad side it takes a lot to get him to like you again. I was told to hold most of the bags since Louis was devoting most of his energy on finding 'the perfect present for his LiLi.' They are so cute together, but sometimes it's suffocating. Watching them made me sad sometimes, especially before Harry and I became official. I used to sit in my house and think about how Louis and Liam were so lucky. They got to have each other and hold each other while I was alone and missing Niall. I cringed at the thought of his name but was shaken out of my thoughts when Louis spoke, sending a shock through me. 

 

"Okay, I think I'm ready. Liam will be home in 20 minutes, so we need to hurry." Louis says paying for his present then running out of the store. I didn't even get to see what he had gotten Liam. Oh well, I'll text him later and ask him. Milly, Harry and I ran after him and went to the car. Milly was already laughing when we got to the car. I swear that girl is always laughing and having a good time. When Louis first introduced her to me it was awkward because she wasn't told about how I'm gay, so she tried hitting on me. I remember the look on her face when told her I was gay. Her mouth dropped and she looked at me like I had a third head, at first I thought she was grossed out and mad. But then I remembered she knew about Liam and Louis, so why would she be grossed out? She laughed it off and gave a snide comment that only Dr. Phil would have said. From that point on I always called her the female Dr. Phil. We put the things in Milly's car and waved goodbye to them. Harry and I walked over to our car and got in watching Louis and Milly pull out of the parking lot. Harry was acting so odd, he hadn't spoken to me since we got to the mall. I turned to look at him and he was spacing out, just staring at nothing in particular. I could see his eyes were starting to glaze over from spacing out for so long. I reached over and squeezed his knee, he jumped at the sudden contact and snapped his head to look at me. His face looks confused and pained. I feel like I have just hurt him, but how would I have hurt him? His eyes suddenly show anger, I watch as the anger floods his eyes. His hand clenches into a fist and he takes a deep breath. Why is he so angry? I haven't even spoken to him the whole time we have been here.

 

"Haz... what's wrong?" I ask slowly, hoping he doesn't flip out on me. He starts shaking his head back and forth mumbling something I couldn't really hear. I cocked my head to the side trying to read what he was mumbling, but it was no use I couldn't see what he was saying. I took a deep breath and crossed my fingers he doesn't hate me for what I am about to do. I can't think of anything else to do to get him out of this state.

 

"Haz? Harry? Hello? Earth to Harry!" I joke waving my hand in front of his face. Harry goes tense and his eyes start focusing again. I let out a sigh of relief, thank god he isn't stuck like this. I heard people can get stuck in states like this, where they just keep spacing out and there's nothing anyone can do to help them. He looks as if he had really been deep in thought, he turns his head slowly to look at me. I give him a weak smile, he just gives me a blank stare back. I can't stand this! Why is he so spacy? I get this feeling it was something I said or did, but I haven't really been talking to him this whole time we were here. Maybe that's it, maybe it's because I haven't been talking to him.  

 

"Harry?" I ask one last time. Harry shakes his head back and forth, his curls falling over his face. His curls slightly resemble a halo, it frames his face so perfectly. I carefully reach out and push some of the curls out of his face. I hope that didn't frighten Harry again. Harry's eyes bolt up and catch mine, at least he is looking at me now.

 

"Harry baby what's wrong? You keep looking off into space" I sooth. I run my hand up and down Harry's thigh trying to soothe him more. Harry's mouth opens as if he wanted to say something to me. I purse my lips and wait patiently for him to speak. If he needs time, then I will give him time. I hate seeing him like this. 

 

"C-can we g-go home?" He stutters. I let out a small sigh and nod. I put the key in the ignition and pull out of the drive. The ride home was very quiet, Harry started to space out once again. I don't think it's healthy for someone to space out that much. I drove slowly down the street thinking about the events of today, did anyone else seem this off? I don't think so, Milly seemed like her usual funny outgoing self, Louis was normal. He seemed a little frazzled, but that's to be expected because he was shopping for his boyfriend. Oh well, maybe it's just something else. Harry was acting off earlier today too. I drove down the road in silence hoping Harry would come out of his trance, no such luck. I drove past the park by my street and saw a boy. He has dark brown hair, but you could tell it used to have blonde in it. Flashes of Niall's face flooded my eyes. I shook my head trying to rid myself of the thoughts. I took a deep breath and focused back on the road. Many people have brown hair that they dye, I need to get over him. I have to, for Harry. I pulled into the driveway and turned to Harry who was still spacing, I was about to reach out when my phone rang. I took my phone out of my pocket and read the caller ID. 'Paul Higgins' After Paris he moved back to London. He became my primary doctor when mine decided he was going to retire. I was shocked to see him again, he didn't know what had happened with... um... well... you know who... and let's just say it didn't end well. Harry had to come to the hospital and try to calm me down. Dr. Higgins felt bad for me after and since then he treats me slightly different than his other patients. For instance he allows me to call him by his first name. I accepted the call and put the phone up to my ear.

 

"Hello?" I ask slowly still eyeing Harry. I am getting worried about him now, he shouldn't be spacing this much. It can't be healthy.

 

"Hi Zayn!" Paul says enthusiastically. I chuckle at his happiness, at least he is happy. That makes one of us. 

 

"Hey Paul, what's up?" I ask leaning back in my seat. I turned off the car and tried to relax. The car started to feel stuffy because I turned it off. I tried to ignore it though.  Paul doesn't usually call me so it has to be some good news.

 

"Zayn we have great news! We need you to come down to the hospital right away. It's a shocker though so be ready to freak!" He says stills sounding really happy. My heart leapt, something good is about to happen. But what could it be?

 

"Okay, can I have a hint?" I ask crossing my fingers. I held my breath as I waited for Paul to answer me. What good news could it be? I already was told I am cancer free, what else could be such good news?
