On the Road to Recovery

Claire doesn't really remember what happened that night, all she knows is that now she's in a wheel chair because of it and partially blind. Her dad takes a new job in Bradford so Claire and her family pack up and move. Claire isn't expecting to make new friends at her new school, who would want to be friends with that freak that couldn't walk or see? But as she wheels her way home from school she'll meet her neighbor Zayn Malik. He's tall, dark, and handsome. And he wants to be friends with Claire.


3. Texting

Christian and I sat outside the school waiting for Zayn to come out. We had agreed to meet outside by the stairs after school so we could all find each other. School had gotten out about ten minutes ago and the school was pretty much empty and still no Zayn.

"Maybe he forgot," Christian said.

I only shook my head. I refused to believe the Zayn forgot. A few minutes later the front doors opened and Zayn came walking out. He wore black sunglasses and a black leather jacket. He strode over to us and took his sunglasses off.

"Sorry I'm late," he said. "Got held up. Ready?" he asked. Christian stood up and we walked over to Zayn's car. Christian helped me get in the car as Zayn put my chair in the back. Then they both got in a Zayn drove away.

"Hey Claire, I was thinking that we should have each others phone number's. You know, in case you need anything," Zayn said. I heard Christian chuckle in the back.

"Yea sure, where's your phone and I'll put my number in," I asked. Zayn pulled out his phone and handed it to me. I took it and put my number in and handed it back. "Just text me when you get a chance so I can get your number," I said. 

"Sure thing," Zayn said as he pulled into my driveway. He got out and got my chair out and Christian helped me out.

"Thanks Zayn," I said as I smiled up at him,

"No problem Claire," he said. "See ya tomorrow mates," he said as he drove next door. Christian walked inside but I stayed outside watching Zayn as he got out and walked into his house, right after he waved from across the garden. I wheeled into the kitchen and pulled out a soda. I wheeled up to the table where my mum was.

"Hey hun, how was school?" she asked not looking up from her work.

"It was alright," I said.

"Chris said you've been getting rides to school. Who's driving?" she asked.

"A neighbor boy, his name is Zayn," I said as I felt my phone vibrate. I pulled it out of my pocket and looked at it. It was a number I didn't know but I bet I knew who it was anyways. I read the text saying:

Hey love, miss you already -Zayn

I smiled as I quickly replied with a smiley face. My mum looked up from her work and looked at me.

"A boy?" she asked as my phone vibrated again. I nodded. "Zayn?" she asked. I nodded but wasn't paying any attention to her.

Zayn: Do you wanna hang out today?

I looked up from my phone.

"Hey mum, can I hang out with Zayn?" I asked. She looked up from her work again. She was silent and then nodded.

"I don't see why not," she said. "I'd like to meet him,"

Me: Sure :) come on over.

I quickly texted Zayn back and wheeled back to my room to wait.
