The Girl Who Tried

This girl, goes through more than you'd think. It's not just the orphanage, or losing the few people she connects with, but the constant heartache and paps. Everything about this life seems wrong, but being with Niall, Liam, Louis, Harry, and Zayn seems so right. Especially when she meets some other people, who she can't help but connect with. This is the story of her adventures, her heartaches, her happiness and love. This, is the story of the girl who tried.


11. The Park.

         (A/N: Please excuse how I switched from present tense to past tense, I didn't mean to. Thank you to those who still read!)   

                   That night, the boys slept heavily. Their beds were rumpled and pillows tossed, their sleeping patterns obviously off. Around 3 am, she brought Zero up into the room. A blanket was stolen, along with a pillow, so he could be comfortable. He slept in a small area, wedged between a bed and the wall, luckily out of sight from anyone on the beds. She slept on a couch again, in sight of her friend. 

               She was soon asleep, but Zero didn't have much luck. You would think that since he's now in such a comfortable area, he'd be asleep immediately. Although, being in the room of the people you so much despise doesn't make it super easy to be lulled into a lovely little sleep. About an hour later, she began to stir a little on the couch. 

                Her body tossed and turned on the couch, small whimpers passing her lips. Zero sat up, his eyes moving in on her. He leaned on his elbows, watching her curiously. She'd had bad dreams, but none that made her physically toss and turn. Her whimpers grew louder, turning into small cries, which were progressively growing into sobs. He leaped to his feet and rushed over to her. His One hand rested on her shoulder, the other cupping her cheek. 

"Hey... hey c'mon." Zero's voice was soft, yet urgent. "I'm here, it's okay. Please wake up!" 

                 She sat up with a start, her eyes glassy with tears. Her chest rose and fell heavily, her breathing rapid. With one look at Zero, her tense muscles relaxed. She nodded, sniffed, and wiped her cheeks. 

"Th-Thank you," she breathed the words, feeling comforted by his presence. 

                   The boy in front of her nodded, and began to move back to his area. Before he could make it completely off of the couch, she gently gripped his upper arm. He turned to look at her. No words had to be exchanged to communicate what was being asked. Her eyes bore into his, looking almost pleading. He gave a small nod and laid back, his arms opening. Her head rested on his chest, her hand followed suit, the other curling around his body. Zero's arms enclosed around her, holding her tight. 


                   Yet again the sun beckoned her awake. It took her a good few minutes to actually rouse from her deep sleep, but when she did, she was wide awake. Sleeping in Zero's arms was surprisingly comfortable, in more ways than one. Gently waking him, she put a finger to her lip to show that he should be quiet. He nodded and stood with her, straightening out his clothes. 

                    They made their way down the hall, soon out of the hotel. They'd made it through the night unnoticed. Breathing out a sigh of relief, she smiled. Zero stretched out his arms and yawned, running a hand through his unruly hair. They walked around the city in silence, going through a small park. Yes, she was supposed to be a secret, but she found herself uncaring. 

                 They didn't hold hands, or even speak, but they were comfortable just having their shoulders touching as they walked. Once they made their way back to the hotel, they knew it was time to say goodbye. Her arms wrapped around his neck, and he smiled warmly. 

"Tonight," She mumbled. "We'll do the same thing. Promise me?" He nodded, his hands resting on her shoulders. 

"Promise. Try not to get yourself into too much trouble." He winked. 

"No promises." 

"Well.. I'll see you later." He leaned down and gently kissed her forehead, a small gesture. 

"Hey, don't get soft on me." She nudged him with her elbow, but her features soon softened. "Where are you going for the day?" 

Zero sighed and shook his head, taking a step back from her. "You know that you wouldn't like that answer. C'mon, I'll see you tonight. For now, go and live your life." With that, he turned on his heel and walked off. 

               A small sigh left her lips as she watched him leave. After a moment of standing on the sidewalk, she turned and returned to the hotel. A few of the boys were asleep, the others wandering around the room in an attempt to get themselves ready for the day. She ignored all of their questions about where she'd been, and instead sat down on the bed next to Niall, in front of the TV. She began to nervously chew her nails, as it made her anxious to think about where Zero was. 



"Whatever is up with you, we need to get it off of your mind." Niall poked her side, still cuddled under the covers next to her. 

"Maybe." She muttered, obviously still spacing out. 

                 Meanwhile in the other room, Ali and Mya were giggling on the couch. Mya whispered something else, causing the two girls to be thrown into a fit of laughter. 

"What are you two going on about?" Luke asked, unable to hide his wide smile. They began to explain what they were giggling over, but that only sent them into a fit of even harder laughing. 

"I don't even know," Ali explained in between gasps. 

                   Seeing how playful they were with each other, she realized that she needed something like that. A real and true friend, with no complications. Although, that wouldn't be exactly easy to find in this whole situation. She shook her head and fell back on the bed, her head falling onto the pillow next to Niall's. 

"Will you two just cuddle already and get it over with?" Calum joked, tossing another pillow at the two. From the corner of her eye, she could see Liam's face flush, and he walked into the bathroom. 

"Oh, shut up." Niall murmured, burying his face into the covers. 



"What should we do today?" 

"Something outside. There's hardly any paps in this town, so we should be able to do something uninterrupted. " 

"You're sure?" She piped up, not wanting to be harassed by anyone else. She unconsciously ran her fingertips over the area where she'd once been dyed with paint. 

"I'm sure." Niall reassured, giving her a small nod. 

"Ooh! Ash, there's an amusement park in town!" Ali stated, obviously excited at the thought of it. 

"Yeah?" Ashton fell back onto the couch with her, wrapping his arms around her waist. His eyes scanned over the computer resting in her lap, reading the article. 


                  After deciding the amusement park was safe enough, she took a shower. Her hair was dried and put into a side fishtail braid. She slid on jean shorts and a loose tank top. Black and white converse were worn on her feet-- the same one's she'd worn when she was with Zero on the streets. She shook her head to push the thought of that time out of her head. 

                They all piled into a car and cranked the radio, rolling the windows down. Jokes were made, laughter had, and they all sang along to the radio. 

"I think Mya's a better singer than I am!" Michael laughed, and Mya shoved him. 

"Oh, shut up!" 

She leaned forward and pressed her lips to Louis' ear. "How far is the park from here?" She thought she saw him shudder a little, but if he did, he acted like he didn't.

"About another half an hour, you okay?" He questioned, turning to look back at her. She nodded.

"Yeah, I'm good. Just wondering. Thanks!" She fell back into the seat, and peered out the window. 


                   Asthon's fingers laced with Ali's, making her cheeks turn a light red, yet a smile appeared on her face. Luke's arm had been draped around Mya's shoulders for practically the entire car ride. After a moment, Ali leaned up to whisper in Ashton's ear. 

"Are there gonna be roller-coasters?" 

"Yeah, why?" Ali bit down on her lip and averted her gaze, shrugging. "Wait.. are you scared of roller-coasters?" Laughter laced his voice. 

"W-What? No! Well.. maybe a little." She buried her face into her hands and giggled. "Don't judge me!" She felt his arm snake around her waist. 

"Now we're going on all of them." 


                Once they'd arrived at the park, they all started talking at once, to decide where to go first. Not many people occupied the park, as it was the first day it was here. 

               The rides were fun and thrilling, and Ali couldn't stop giggling after the roller-coasters for some reason. Mya and Luke were being so adorable, that even she got a little tired of it. They couldn't seem to get enough of each other. 

               Luke pressed a small kiss to Mya's cheek, and she reached up, grasping his chin. She promptly kissed his lips and giggled. 

"That's how you do that." She tapped his nose, before skipping off to the cotton candy stand. Luke laughed and followed her, shaking his head a little bit. 

"How do you like the Fair so far?" Louis asked her, studying her features. 

"I love it, thank you for taking me." She smiled at him. 

               Louis paused for a moment, thinking. Whatever he was pondering, he decided on it. 

"C'mon." He grasped her hand tightly. His hand was warm and strong, somehow making her feel safe. 

              He lead her to an obviously secret part of the park, behind the Ferris Wheel. On the way there, he'd scooped her up and put her on his back, running off to the small area. After laughing a little, she slid off of his back and peered up at him. 

"Did you want to talk to me about something?" She questioned, rocking back and forth on her feet a little bit. He shook his head. 

"No, I just wanted you to be away from everyone. Away from all the pressure." She nodded and leaned against the Ferris Wheel, which was thankfully not running. 

"Thank you." She smiled up at him, and quickly realized that he was a little uncomfortable. "Are you alright?" 

"Yeah.. just.. nervous." 

"Why are you nervous? You're always so put together. It's just me." She laughed a little and stepped forward, peering up curiously at him. 

"Well... I..." He stutters, which is certainly different. 

                 With no warning, he steps forward and wraps his arms around her waist. One hand moves up to rest on her upper back, almost resting on her neck. She has to stand on her toes to wrap her arms around his shoulders, her face burying itself in his neck. She breathed in his scent, her eyes fluttering closed. 

"I missed you." He finished. 

                  What she didn't know, and what he hardly knew, is that he wanted more. Louis wanted to feel his lips pressed against hers, but knew that she'd been through too much lately. He knew better than to do something like that to her. After holding the hug for a little while too long, he pulled back. 

"I'm just glad that you are back. We all really missed you." 


                                The two sat on a rung on the Ferris Wheel, side by side. Louis' hand rested on the bar. She reached down and placed her hand on top of his, causing the both of them to look away and smile widely.
