I hear a knock on the door and all the boys' walk in, one by one.
"GET UP!" Louis yells at me.
I rub my eyes and throw my pillow at him. "Shut up," I mumble.
"Get up mate," Harry says. "It's almost 1 o'clock in the afternoon."
Well it may be that late, but I certainly haven't slept that long. I just fell asleep a couple hours ago after sitting up in bed the entire night. It's been like this for what seems like a lifetime now. So, I'm used to having a lack of sleep now.
"So," I mumble.
"So you need to get up!" Niall says before throwing the pillow back at me. "You've been such a party pooper since Mari left," he laughs. "Don't be a wimp."
Next thing I know, I pushed Niall up against the wall and I'm holding him up by the collar of his shirt. "Don't be a wimp?!" I shout. "I'LL SHOW YOU A FUCKING WIMP!"
"Zayn get off of him!" Liam shouts as he tries to pull me off of Niall. Harry joins in and they pull me off of Niall with all their strength. Niall brushes himself off and gives me a smirk.
"I was just joking mate, jesus!" he shouts. "Ahh, so this is what this is all about," he says before laughing. "A girl?"
"She's wasn't just some fucking girl," I spit at him.
"He's right Niall," Liam intervenes. "Mari actually meant a lot to Zayn. She really did. I mean look at him."
The boys take a look at me and I see their eyes widen a little in shock.
I don't look that terrible do I?
I walk over to the mirror and barely recognize myself. The bags underneath my eyes have gotten larger, my eyes are very bloodshot, my hair looks terrible, and I have a little bit of stubble on my face. If I was out on the street, I guess you could say that I would be a bum.
"She did mean a lot to me," I mumble. "I cared for her...or at least started to. But life is a bitch. This is what happens whenever you let your guard down for once. Life comes back and bites you in the fucking ass."
"Well that's not always true mate," Louis says before placing his hand on my shoulder.
"How about we go and party tonight?" Harry says before doing a little dance. "It's been a while mate don't ya think?"
The last time I've been out was the night that I met Mari...
"I don't think that's such a good idea mate," I respond.
"C'mon man," Niall says. "Let's go and get drunk," he laughs.
"You need to go out and socialize Zayn," Liam says.
"Whatever," I respond. "Fine, give me an hour."
"We're going out tonight y'all!" Harry shouts before running out the hallway. I hear him yelling all the way at the end of the hallway and I cannot help but smile.
"This will be good for you Zayn," Liam says. "I promise."
I sure fucking hope so.
I do need a drink. I really do.
And tonight's the perfect night to do so...
I settle with some black skinny jeans with a hoodie and my leather jacket. I just mess with my hair for a little bit and I head downstairs.
"There's the Zayn we know!" Louis shouts as I walk down the stairs.
"He's back ladies and gentleman!" Harry shouts. "He's BACK!"
I look around the corner and see my sisters sitting at the table, smiling at Harry.
"You look...nice," Doniya says before giving me a small smile.
"Are you guys going clubbing?" Waliyah asks.
"You know it!" Niall says before laughing.
"We'll be back later girls," Liam says. "Don't blow up the house while we are gone okay?"
The girls start to laugh at Liam and their laughter makes me let out a small laugh as well.
"We promise Liam," Safaa says.
"But, we're gonna have a party of our own though," Doniya says.
"That's fine with me," I say before giving them a small smile. "This is your house too now."
"I'm happy that we get to stay with you Zayn," Safaa says before showing me a toothy grin.
"Me too," I say before smiling back.
"Well, we must be going now," Harry says. "It's time to get our party on fellas!"
Harry has always been a party animal. So, I'm used to the way he is acting right now. This is typical Harry.
"See ya later," I say before hugging each of my sisters. I hug them tighter than usual because you never know when you will lose someone you care about. And when I learned that my sisters were taken, I thought I would never be able to hug them or even see them again. So, I'm grateful that I get the opportunity to hug them.
"Uh Zayn?" Doniya says. "If you hug me any harder I won't be able to breathe."
I quickly let go of them and laugh off my embarrassment. "Sorry."
"Okay, we are really leaving now okay?" I say. "See ya later."
"Bye you guys!" they all shout at me and the lads.
We all head towards the door and Harry opens it. The cold and crisp air hits me in the face as I step outside. It feels kinda foreign to me, but I feel like I can actually breath again...which is a good thing.
I pull my jacket closer to me and fold my arms in front of me.
I'm kinda looking forward to what the night has ahead for me.
