17. Chapter 17

Faith's POV

"Ben, I need to talk to you..."

"Can't it wait Faith, the guys are waiting for me to meet them after school..."

"No, it can't. I-I'm pregnant..."

"What! How could you let this happen?!"

"Me?! I didn't do it by myself!"

"I don't want kids Faith... I'm too young... Get rid of it!"

"Ben, I-I... can't..."

******

"Mom, dad... I-I need to talk to you..."

"Sure, what is it?"

"I'm pregnant..."

"WHAT! Faith, how could you be so stupid! Who's the father?"

"Ben..."

"Not the 'Ben', who we forbid you to see?!"

"Y-yes..."

"Have you told him yet?"

"yes..."

"What did he say? Is he going to marry you?"

"No, he wants me to deal with it myself..."

"so...what Faith...you thought you'd come running to mom and dad to help bail you out? You didn't want to listen to us before when we told you to stay away from that boy! We'll make you a doctor's appointment to have this 'situation' dealt with, then we're sending you away! We can't stand the sight of you!"

"No... It's not a 'situation' and I don't want it 'dealt' with... It's a baby, it's my baby!"

"Get out! Pack your stuff and get out. You're no longer our daughter..."

"What? B-But..."

"And don't come back!"

******

**Knock, Knock, Knock**

"Faith, what are you doing sleeping in your car?"

"Mom and dad kicked me out, Ben..."

"You can come stay with me..."

"I thought you..."

"I don't want it Faith, but I don't want you sleeping out here in your car either..."

******

"She's beautiful Faith...Just like her mother... Maybe, we can make this work..."

"What should we name her Ben?"

"I've always liked 'Alexis'..."

"That's beautiful... Okay, 'Alexis' it is. Did you really mean it when you said we can make this work?"

"Yes, of course. Would I lie to you?"

******

"Miss Harrison, is there someone we can call to come pick you and Alexis up?"

"N-No, it's fine. Ben will be here. Something must of happened. Thank you."

"Miss Harrison, you've been waiting here all afternoon. My shift is ending, let me drive you and the baby home..."

"Thank you, Nurse..."

******

Dear Faith,

By the time you read this I'll be gone. I can't ruin my life over a bet. Which is what you were. A bet. In case you're wondering, I won. Have a nice life.

Ben

******

"Can I ask you guys a question? Why me, why us? You could of asked anyone. I'm sure you could of had a super model or someone more...appealing."

"Faith, have you seen yourself. You're beautiful..."

"I'm a train wreck..."

******

"Tell me you don't think about me when your lying in bed at night. Tell me you don't toss and turn and wonder 'what if'..."

"I do wonder Zayn... and it scares me... I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I see when I look at you, I'm scared of how I act when you're around, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room, out of this house, and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you, but I've already been with someone who would sell out his family and friends for something better. I can't do that again..."

"I would never do that to you or Alexis..."

******

Zayn's POV

"You're lucky it's not broken dumbass...", Liam says, as he watches the doctor bandage my hand. He's right. I am lucky I didn't break it, just a sprain.

"What am I going to do Liam? I really like Faith and I don't know how to make her see. Should I just give up? Like Louis says, she's got alot of baggage. Maybe I should just walk away..."

"Zayn, I can't tell you what to do mate. But I think you were right the other day when you said that people have bailed on her all her life. It's easy to just walk away when things get complicated."

He's right, deep down I already knew that. Faith just has to wake up, so we can get Alexis back. I make my way back down to her room and sit next to her on the bed. She looks so peaceful just laying there, I brush a strand of her hair off to the side. Leaning in, I plant a small kiss on her soft lips as I take her hand in mine. I wish she could hear me. I need to tell her how I feel.

Change My Mind - One Direction

The end of the night

We should say goodbye

But we carry on

While everyone’s gone

Never felt like this before

Are we friends or are we more?

As I’m walking towards the door

I’m not sure

But baby if you say you want me to stay

I’ll change my mind

'Cause I don’t wanna know I’m walking away

If you’ll be mine

Won’t go, won’t go

So baby if you say you want me to stay, stay for the night

I’ll change my mind.

Lean in when you laugh,

We take photographs

There’s no music on

But we dance along

Never felt like this before

Are we friends or are we more?

As I’m walking towards the door

I’m not sure.

But baby if you say you want me to stay

I’ll change my mind

'Cause I don’t wanna know I’m walking away

If you’ll be mine

Won’t go, won’t go

So baby if you say you want me to stay, stay for the night

I’ll change my mind.

I’ll change my mind.

Baby if you say you want me to stay

I’ll change my mind

But baby if you say you want me to stay

I’ll change my mind

'Cause I don’t wanna know I’m walking away

If you’ll be mine

Won’t go, won’t go

So baby if you say you want me to stay, stay for the night

I’ll change my mind

"That was beautiful..."

"Faith, you're awake... I'll get the doctor..."

"No Zayn, wait... I'm sorry, I tried to run... I'm so tired of trying to stay away from you...", she whispers, tears flooding her face.

"Then don't... Let me show you how love is supposed to be. Let me love you..."

I gently stroke my fingers along her forehead and down the side of her face, grasping her chin and holding it in place. I lean in and press my lips to hers. Her hands wrap around the back of my neck and pull me closer. Finally, she's letting me in, and for just a moment, there's no one else, just her and I and we both enjoy being lost in each other.
