Our Moment

17 year old dancer Chloe moves from a small city called Portsmouth to London with her best friend Bonnie. Little did she know she lived two floors up from the famous Zayn Malik, who she is becoming to see a lot more of.


13. The funeral

Chloe's P.O.V

3 weeks have passed since Joey's been gone. It has been really hard but I've lived my life like I told him I would. Zayn's been there for me every step of the way, like the promise he made the day Joey died. I haven't cried as much during the day but at night it's all I can think about. Today was probably going to be the hardest day of my life, Joey's funeral. My mum asked me to write a speech ready, so I took some time while Zayn was in the studio to write a long, heartfelt speech. I really missed him.

As we stepped out into the cars there was papz everywhere. I was a little bit angry seeing as it was my brothers funeral. I invited all the boys with me, because they were my best friends, along with El and Soph. We reached the church eventually after driving behind the car with Joey's coffin in it. "Good morning" the priest welcomed us all and we sat down. He stood and told us about God and his decisions on who he wants in heaven with him. I just couldn't bare it anymore, I ran out and slowly fell down against the wall. I put my head in my hands and felt a strong hand on my shoulder "Chloe" it sounded like Louis. I looked up at him "C'mon Clo, you heard what Joey said, he'd want you to be strong! Go in there and read that speech of yours" he was like my older brother, he helped me up off the floor and I scurried back into my seat. I looked to my left and saw a tear fall down Zayn's cheek. I wanted to cry with him but I had to be strong "I will now invite Chloe, Joey's little sister up to say a few words" the priest went on as I shuffled out of my seat

"Hello everybody, thanks for coming today, I'm sure Joey would feel so proud to have such an impact on so many people. He really has gone to a better place, I would firstly like to start on how much of a great influence he was on me and Bonnie, he taught us how to behave, and how to misbehave. He helped me with my boy troubles and I helped him with his girl troubles, and together I think we made history in our family. I really am proud to call him my big brother, although there was only 11 months between us. There are people here who didn't get the chance to meet Joey but are still crying, and I really sort of thank you for that. Thank you for helping me get through these tough few weeks. I'd also like to thank my mum for creating such a character! People say that God is always right, but the decision he made three weeks ago today was one of the worst he could've ever made, he took an amazing person away from me because he was getting bored of the innocent angels he already had! Anyway, heaven gained yet another angel and I know he's looking down on us now, congratulating himself on what a great change he's made in everyone here's life. Thank you" I sobbed and ran to Zayn, he cuddled me and kissed me on the cheek "You're so brave baby, I love you" I nodded and managed to whisper "I love you too, please don't ever leave me?" he shook his head in shock "never" 


We made our way outside and Zayn, Louis, Harry and Liam all carried the coffin, I was so grateful to have ever met these boys. I looked over my shoulder and caught a pap taking pictures but I let it go because I didn't want to be angry on a day like this. We all stood round a whole in the ground and watched as Joey was carefully lowered into it "any personal belongings you would like to give to Joey, please do so now." He groaned, people walked over and threw flowers in, but when it came to my turn, I threw in the tooth in a box that he'd helped me pull out for some money for a magazine I wanted when we were 10 and smiled to myself. 

What a day. We all got in the cars home and spoke about some memories we'd all had with Joey, some good, some bad, some funny, some sad. Like the time he killed my hamster and promised to buy me a new one. But never did.

"Chloe I'm so proud of you" Zayn whispered in my ear "I should be proud of you though Zayn, you didn't have to do any of this, but you did" I replied smiling at him "because I love you!" he kissed me on the lips slowly, and moved a bit of my hair from my face and tucked it behind my ear. I got my phone out and tapped on twitter. I had loads of mentions "so sorry for your loss, us directioners are here" "Really hope you're okay, we're all here for you!"  

Some were lovely, well most of them but some not but it didn't really bother me, they were just about me and Zayn being in a relationship but I knew I'd get this before we even dated, so I was fine with it. I know I'm safe with Zayn and that's all that mattered.
