I sat in the chair with a drink in my hand laughing it up as two guys got into a fight on the dance floor over some white skinny whore. I heard someone calling my named which kept buzzing in my ear. I groaned at the displeasure. I turned my head to see Patience and Mansi standing with their arms crossed. I groaned.
"Lets go home." Patience said taking my hand and pulling me out of the club. Mansi was following us looking backwards nervously. By the time we got home I had a huge migraine.
"I'm going to head home now." Mansi said with a soft cute smile on her face.
"Thank you for your help Mansi." Patience said.
After she left Patience glared at me with her arms crossed. I groaned with displeasure as my head was pounding. She just shook her head and went to her room. Yeah that's right Patience and I live together. About two weeks after the guys left my place caught fire. Around this time I met this girl named Patience and she was looking for a place to live. So we decided to buy a house together and split the rent. About a couple days after the boys left Angie left also. For different reason though. Her mother grew very ill and needed someone to take care of her. Misery moved to New York with her new boyfriend. He was alright, he treated her right. Alexy lives by herself, but now without Misery around she visits a lot. Patience knows all about the boys because I tend to talk in my sleep and I talk a bunch when I'm drunk. After the guys leaving and losing Angie I ended up getting into the habit of drinking. It was my escape from the pain.
I woke up to the sun beaming on my face. My head was killing me now. I stumbled to the kitchen to take some meds. I heard the bedroom door creak open. I turned around to see a very tired Patience. She softly smiled at me while she grabbed some coffee.
"Mansi said something about the park today last night.." She muttered.
"Patti mumbling makes it hard to hear you." I teased.
"Are you going?" She asked.
"I guess. You going to come along?" I asked.
"Sure I mean I was invited." She sassed.
I rolled my eyes just as there was a knock at the door. I walked around the counter and answered it. It was Alexy. She was wearing her typical beanie and cameo. She took the soda I had in my hands and took a drink. I glared at her which caused her to smile.
"You gonna come along?" I asked.
"Where?" She asked.
"The park." Patti said.
"Sure I have nothing better to do." She joked.
I walked into the bathroom and took a shower then put fresh clothes on. Afterwards I looked into the mirror as I put my heart key necklace on. I stared at myself noticing how tired I looked. I shrugged it off and headed out to the others. We walked to the park, I was barefoot like normal. I enjoyed being barefoot with shorts and a tank top. I had shades on because of the hang over. I looked over towards the tree and noticed Mansi sitting on the swing. We walked over to her and she smiled brightly. The last time I saw her smiling like this was when I ran into her with Louis.
"What's today?" I asked.
Mansi's smiled got bigger so I knew exactly why she wanted us to come here today. My head started pounding again. I groaned.
"Could have warned me..." I groaned.
"Then you would've showed up drunk!" Mansi protested.
I shrugged and walked over to the tree, then I climbed it. I sat on the branch and leaned my back against the trunk. Mansi was talking to Patti about Louis. She was very happy to have her boyfriend back. Alexy stood under the tree staring up at me. Then we heard voices and I gave Alexy the "Shh" face. She nodded and walked towards the others. I turned my head and saw the guys walking towards us. Mansi ran to Louis and he lifted her into his arms spinning her around. They kissed each other with smiles plastered on their faces.
"Hey Alexy." Harry said. His voiced seemed rough.
"Hey Haz." She smiled at him.
"Who's this?" Niall asked looking at Patience.
"This is Patience..." Alexy looked at me but turned back to the boys quickly. "She's Zoey's roommate."
"Zoey? Where is she?" Harry asked.
"I stopped by her place but it was cautioned off.." Liam mumbled.
"Her house caught fire soon after you all left. That's when she met Patience." Alexy explained.
I sighed and smelt smoke. Smoke? I looked around the tree and noticed little clouds of smoke. I sniffed at it and realized it was cigarette smoke. My eyes widened as I slowly looked below me to see Zayn. He was leaning against the tree looking at the others.
"Where exactly is she?" Harry said raising his eyebrow.
"Uh...somewhere around.." Alexy said scratching her head.
I stood up on the branch trying to get higher away. I felt my foot slide off the branch and then I felt my body fall. Crap. I opened my eyes to see that Zayn had caught me. I slowly looked over towards the others to see smiles and curious eyes looking at me. Zayn set me back on my feet with a smirk across his face. I quickly picked up the glasses and put them back on. The sun wasn't my friend today.
"You weren't kidding when you said somewhere near." Liam laughed.
I groaned. They all walked over to me looking me up and down which made me feel very uncomfortable. I walked past them all and went home. I couldn't handle being around them. I rather be alone then get close to them every time they came home. I slammed the door shut and fell to my knees. I leaned my back against the wall and buried my face in my knees. I heard the door open so I looked up hoping it was Patti. It wasn't.
"Hey why'd you leave like that Zo?" Harry asked bending down next to me. He pulled the sunglasses off my face and stared in my eyes. "You were drinking last night?"
"What's it to you?!" I snipped.
He slammed his hands on the wall to each side of my head trapping me. His eyes filled with a little bit of anger but a lot of passion.
"Why would you drink alone?" He frowned. "What if some guy took advantage of you..."
"It wouldn't have been the first time." Patience said walking in.
"What?!" I heard a sharp Irish accent say behind her.
Great she bought everyone didn't she?! I glared at her but she just shrugged it off. I noticed only Niall and Liam came with her.
"She's been taken advantage of a few times." Patience finally said.
I could see the anger in their faces. I sigh and shook my head.
"Can I talk to her alone please..." Harry begged.
They all nodded and headed back out of the house. He looked at me with his bright green eyes peering inside me.
"You shouldn't..." He began.
"I shouldn't what?! Drink the pain away!? Well it's not like you could understand!" I snipped and pushed him back so my body was now hovering over his. "You can't even possibly understand the pain..." I clutched my shirt above my heart. He pushed me and rolled on top of me. His eyes were piercing into me.
"I could understand more than you realize Zoey." His voice was stern but caring. I could feel his curls touching my cheeks. I could feel his breath on my face. My heart was pounding like crazy. I closed my eyes hoping it would all go away but instead I felt his lips lock with mine. This caused my eyes to shoot open. Every part of me was going weak. Then he pulled away and stood up. He lifted me back to my feet before going to the others. I let out a scream and punched the counter. I ran to my bedroom and locked the door. I wanted to be alone now.
