"Want one?" Liam asks pushing the plate of muffins in my direction after taking one. I take one, even though I'm not that hungry, I need to occupy myself with something and I haven't ate all day so, here I go. It's weird to be sitting here with Liam discussing my feelings toward Harry and life with him, but out of all people I feel way more comfortable with him than any of my friends or family. He shoves the side of the muffin in his mouth and chews deeply, smiling with crumbs falling from his mouth.
"Mmmm." He says and I laugh, taking a napkin to his face.
"That's gross! Use your manners, Liam."
"Look at you your like my Mum."
"You're 'Mum'," I mock his accent and he shakes his head with a smile. "Is way worse than that." I shift my body so that I have perfect posture. "Liam, dear the Barragan's are here."
"Hey, leave her and her perfect grammar out of here."
"I'm just saying. I'm not your mom."
"So, what are you doing tomorrow? It is New Years."
"Stay with my parents and-"
"You're parents?" He gapes. "You're a 20 year beautiful woman. Go have some fun." I blush at his wonderful use of words for me."
"Well thank you but, I don't have friends and I don't have-fun."
"Your in college of course you do." I take my first bite of my muffin and let in slide down my dry throat. It taste fantastic and I can't help but take another huge bite, Liam's eyes grown wide at my display.
"Woah." He laughs, pushing my hand over my overflowing mouth.
"Don't apologize, you can really eat."
"No, I just haven't ate all day."
"Well then why didn't you tell me? I would have ordered something a little more-"
"No." I say cutting him off. "You don't need to do that." I wipe my mouth with a clean napkin and ball it up in my fist. My phone vibrates on the top of the table, drawing closer to the edge and i grab it and flip it over. The digits appear but no name. I ignore it and go back to my conversation with Liam.
"So when are you going to finally tell your parents about Danielle?" He shrugs and takes another bite of his muffin, looking up.
"I was thinking when they finally came to New York."
"Liam." I groan. "You have to tell them, like soon."
"I know." We stay silent for a moment and he finally breaks the silence by asking that dreadful question.
"So are you going to tell this Harry guy you love him." I almost choke.
"You're a hypocrite." He accuses.
"I am not. It's way more complicated then lying about a break up."
"Is that so?"
"How?" How? It's way different!
"Well for one, he hurt me. I can't just crawl to him and tell him I love him. He's a horrible person."
"Everyone's a horrible person. It's their nature." I stop to look at him.
"Who's side are you on?"
"Well- I guess yours. I don't really know his side so I can't really validate anything. Plus I've known you for a total of 3 hours and who knows what your problems could be."
"Problems?" He laughs harder.
"I didn't mean it like that." The sound of the bell at the top of the door clanks,cauisng me to turn. Zayn's tattoos are the first thing that grabs my attention. His eyes travel to our table and his eyes grow wide and his lips turn at the ends into a devilish smile.
"Who's he?" He asks as I turn to face him
"Who?" He cocks his head in annoyance.
"The guy coming over here."
"He's coming over here?"
"Is that Harry?" I feel a pressure on the back of my chair as he takes to the chair next to me.
"Hi, Zayn." The bruises on his cheeks are finally to the point where the darkest hues are gone and the red make his cheek look rosy. I can't help but feel guilty for leaving him to go hang out with Harry. He's probably still angry at me for being so rude. Liam looks between us.
"Sorry um, Zayn this is Liam. Liam, Zayn." Zayn extends his hand to Zayn and he takes it.
"Are you her boyfriend." It''s Liam's chance to choke.
"Oh God no." I glare at him. "I didn't mean it like that. I just got out of a relationship I don't need to worry about women."
"Thanks for clarifying." I says turning back to Zayn.
"Your in Scottsdale. That's pretty great." He says.
"Well why are you in Scottsdale?" He pauses and takes his nail in between his teeth.
"Personal reasons." What is up with them and being so sketchy! I can't stand it! "Can I talk to you?" Liam looks over to me and up at the risng Zayn.
"Okay." I stand and follow him outside.
I park in the extremly long ass driveway and bolt to the front door, knocking as hard as I can, but I get no answer. Her car is right there Where are they, why don't I hear footsteps coming to the door.
"Hey fucking answer the door!" I scream kicking the door.
"They aren't home!" A female voice calls to me and I have to strain my neck to look over the extravagant shrub to look in the next yard. "Before you go breaking down their door you should know they left about three hours ago."
"Well where are they?" I say growing impatient. She could be stewing with her hate for me right now! I might not have a chance if I wait any longer.
"How am I supposed to know?" I storm back to my car, stomping the whole way.
"Why the fuck would you open your mouth if you dont have information?" I know I'm being rude but I could give less of a shit. Where could they be? Where could she be held up at if she's not here? I drive around a bit turning up and down streets in search of someone resting outside on a porch. Maybe Char or Rich. Maybe even if God spares me, Norie. I pray to God I see Norie.
I have spent more than my fair share traveling through these fucking streets with no si-. Her brown hair sways in the wind as I take in her blue straight legs and black boots looking at the side of a building. What the hell is she doing outside by herself. She looks like she's crazy. I turn into the parking lot and that's when I see him. Fucking Zayn. He has a smile on his face as he stares into her eyes. Fuck.
I shove out of the car, not taking any mind to close the door and sprint across the lot towards them.
"Norie!" her head jerks back and when she sees me the smile she was holding fades and Zayn, like a God damn hero, steps in front of her.
