I couldn't sleep last night...I didn't sleep last night. The amount of fear that was in Mari's voice last night was enough to keep me up. I should be excited that Mari is coming here...and I am. But I know that the only reason why she's coming here is because something happened and I'm pretty nervous to find out what it is. My cell phone rings and I put it up to my ear.
"I'm here," Mari says nervously. "Please hurry."
"I'll be there soon babe," I say before sliding on my jacket and some pants. "Don't worry."
The line goes dead and I hastily walk out of my room accidently bumping into Niall in the process. "Sorry," I say as I walk past him. I walk straight out the front door, despite all the calls for me inside of the house. I need to get to Mari, fast.
Suddenly, I feel a hand being placed on my shoulder and I turn around to find a concerned look on Liam's face. "What's going on Zayn?" he asks.
"It's Mari. She's here, at the airport."
"Wait. Why?" he says with a confused look on his face.
"I don't know mate," I say before walking away from him. "I don't have time to talk. I really need to get there soon."
"I'm coming with you!" Liam shouts as I continue to walk at a fast pace towards the car. I don't protest and just have Liam come with me. Besides, if something happens on the way, I need someone to back me up. I hop in the car and start the engine and moments later Liam hops in the passenger seat beside me. I stomp on the gas and the car basically flies onto the busy streets of London, receiving honks because of my reckless driving.
I'm coming Mari.
I walk out of the terminal as fast as I can before walking straight into the busy midway of the airport. Several faces look at me as I try to find the entrance of the airport. Damn there are a lot of people here. I push past the idiots who think it's okay to just stand in one place and not move, and they hiss at me in return. Haha fuck all of you. I see families waiting for people with huge signs and balloons reading "Welcome Home." I wonder what it would be like to have someone do that for me?
Finally I make it to the entrance, where I step out of the airport with absolutely zero luggage behind me. I take this chance to breathe in the London air, and it doesn't seem that different. People real do over exaggerate things like this in movies...
I spot a black leather jacket in the distance and I instantly know it's Zayn. "Zayn!" I shout before running towards him. His black hair and small beard become more visible the closer I get. The smile spread across his lips seems to grow brighter and brighter as I near him as well. Eventually I feel is long arms wrap around me and pull me close to his chest. I hear the rhythmic beat of his heart and get a good smell of his intoxicating cologne. I forget about the world around me for a split second and I stand on my tippy toes and kiss Zayn as passionately as I can. God I've missed him so much. Several people lay eyes on us as they walk past and I hear a couple snickers at well. Honestly, I don't give a fuck about what any of them think. They have no idea what I've been through.
Zayn breaks the kiss and rubs my cheek with his thumb. "I've missed you so much," he says before pressing a soft kiss on my lips.
"I'm so glad you're okay Zayn," I say, remembering why I'm truly here in London in the first place. "I can't lose you too." I can't lose Zayn...
"What do you mean Mari?" he says before raising his eyebrow. "Please tell me what's going on. You had me worried sick last night."
I look around us and I still see people looking at us, but it's not as many as there were. "I'll tell you as soon as we get somewhere safe," I say. "It's not safe here."
"What do you mean it's not sa-"
"Mari!" I hear Liam shout as he walks over to me and Zayn. I realize that he is just wearing a white t-shirt and a pair of jeans that hang low on his hips and it looks nice on him. Liam wraps his large arms around me in a friendly hug, and I hug him back. "I'm so glad you're here," he says before breaking the hug and smiling at me. " Little Zayn over here was like a lost puppy without you ya know?" he laughs before patting him on the back. I watch as Zayn looks down at the ground, and I cannot help but laugh.
"No need to be shy Zayn." Zayn looks up and smiles at me before looking at the small area around me.
"You don't have any luggage?" he asks.
"No," I say. "Uhh, I'll explain it to you later okay? It's hard to explain."
Zayn nods his head slowly before he grabs my hand and I lace my fingers with his. "C'mon you love birds," Liam says. "I don't know how much longer the car can stay parked down there." Zayn's lips meet mine again and he wraps his arms around me, pulling me closer to him. Just being around him makes me forget about everything that has happened in the last 24 hours. "I'm serious you two!" Liam shouts as he continues to walk towards the car. Both me and Zayn laugh at Liam and before I know it, Zayn picks me up bridal style.
"What are you doing?" I ask while laughing.
Zayn laughs before flashing his bright smile at me. "What? I can't carry you?" he asks surprised. "I mean guess I could let you wa-"
"No," I cut him off abruptly. "I'm just fine." I sure as hell don't feel like walking right now. I'm lazy what can I say? "Continue. Please."
"That's what I thought," Zayn says, satisfied with my answer.
As soon as I step out of the SUV, I soak in the sight of the large house in front of us. Just when I thought Zayn's house was the biggest house I have ever seen, this place has him beat. "Woah," I say as my eyes move across the amazing view. "Who's house is this again?"
"My uncle...Brian," he says before flashing me a smile. "Nice huh?"
"It's not just nice," I say, still amazed by the house right in front of me. "It's fucking amazing." Zayn laughs at me before taking my hand in his and pulling me along with him towards the front door.
As soon as the door opens, I see the boys', Doniya, Safaa, Waliyah and another man...probably Brian sitting at the kitchen table. As Zayn shuts the door behind us, everyone's conversations stop, their gazes shifting towards us. Everyone's eyes widen and Doniya even drops her fork, which creates a loud clinking noise.
"MARI!" I hear Harry shout before he runs over to me and pulls me into a hug. I hear Doniya mumble something under her breath before she abruptly gets up and walks away from the kitchen. Harry lets go of me before looking the direction that Doniya just went. "Don't worry about her," he says before smiling a little at me. "You know how she can be sometimes." Yeah, I definitely know how she can be...a complete bitch. I give Harry a small smile before I see a man who looks just like Zayn standing in front of me. Wow. They favor a lot really...
"You must be Mari right?" he says before letting a small smile spread across his lips. "Zayn didn't tell me that you were coming." I feel kinda bad that I just intruded in their lives basically. "But, the more the merrier they always say." Him saying that makes me relax and feel a little bit better about my decision coming here. "Its very nice to meet you Mari. I'm Brian. Zayn hasn't stopped running his mouth about you since he got here." Zayn shifts his gaze down to the ground and it's almost like he is blushing right now. I grab his hand and give it a tight squeeze, causing him to look up at me.
"Yeah I heard about that," I say before letting out a small laugh. The fact that Zayn hasn't stopped thinking about me, just like I haven't stopped thinking about him makes my heart flutter. I mean he really means a lot to me and being away from him has been one of the hardest things for me to do...
"So I know that you didn't just come here to visit Mari," Brian says without a smile on his face. That smile is long gone. "Did something happen?"
I feel everyone's eyes on me as they are waiting for my response. "Yeah, something did happen actually," I say before clearing my throat. Everyone's stares become more intense it seems like as several seconds pass and it makes me even more nervous. "It's Will," I say as my eyes fill with tears. "He's in danger and if we don't find him soon...h-he will die."
