Once all of us get the stuff we need, we decide to meet in the living room to discuss how we're going to drive and all get there.
When me and Liam get the things we need, Liam turns around and looks at me. He smiles and asks "You ready?"
I smile and look up at him. I say "Ready Freddy. I'm dressed in some cute clothes, I have my shoes, I have my bag, I have money, and I have you." I smile and grab his hand.
Liam smiles and says "And I have you." He leans down and kisses my cheek. "Oh, and you are right. You look very cute today. But you look beautiful everyday."
I smile and say "Awe, well thank you. And you look handsome everyday yourself."
Liam smiles and kisses me on the cheek then leads me out back into the living room.
Once we get in the living room, we see all of the boys and Abby and Emily. Me and Liam walk to the group and they're talking about who's going with who.
Liam speaks up and says "Okay. Do we know how we're all getting there and who is going with who?"
Zayn speaks up and says "Okay, well we figured Molly would wanna go with you and then me and Louis could ride with you guys in our car and Abby, Harry, Emily and Niall could ride in Abby's car that she took here."
Liam nods his head but I interrupt and say "Wait, wait. I wanna go with the girls cause I wanna talk about some girl business and then you guys all go together and you can talk about guy business okay?"
All of the boys nod their heads then Liam pulls me over to the side. He looks at me and says "But I want you to be in the car with me. I want to talk to you." As he says that, he puts his arms around my waist and pulls me closer to him.
I smile and rub my hand through his hair. I look up at him and say "Hey, it's okay. We can walk around everywhere together in the mall and I'll ride in the car with you back here okay?"
Liam sighs and says "I guess." Then he smiles deviously and says "But you'll have to owe me."
I smile and roll my eyes at him. I look back up at him and say "Fine. I'll give you sometime tonight."
He smiles then leans down for a kiss but I dodge away from him and get out of his grip. I run towards Abby and Emily and say to them "Let's go."
Liam starts walking towards me and I try getting Emily and Abby to move but when they finally do, it's too late as Liam wraps his arms around my waist from behind.
As Abby and Emily walk out the door, Liam turns me around and has a sad look on his face. He looks at me and asks "Why did you avoid my kiss?"
I smile as I put my lips his ear. I whisper "You'll have to wait until tonight." I pull back and smile deviously up at him then runs and gets out of his grip but not before he playfully pats me on the butt.
I turn around and see him smiling and he says "I can't wait for tonight."
I just roll my eyes and laugh a little as I run and catch up with Abby and Emily.
Once we get outside, there are a lot of girls outside of the hotel.
I laugh and say "Oh how the boys are gonna have fun getting to their car." Abby and Emily laugh as we get inside the car.
I go around the car and get in the driver's seat with Emily next to me and Abby in the back.
I turn on the car and start heading towards the mall. As I get on the freeway. I smile and look at Emily. I say "So, what's up with you and Niall? What's the details?"
Once Abby hears my question, she locks her phone and scootches up the seat so it's easier for her to look at the both of us. She says "Yeah. What's going on, huh?"
Emily smiles and says "Well, I'm not really sure but I know we like each other. I know we have only known each other for a couple of days but I don't know what he's going to do. I don't know if he's even going to ask me out anytime soon." Emily looks down and fiddles with her thumbs.
I look at her and say "Hey, it's okay. I'm sure he definitely wants you to be his girlfriend but maybe he just wants to take it slow with you. Maybe he just wants to get to know you better first."
Abby nods her head and says "Yeah. Niall wants to get to know the real you so then when he asks you on a date then he'll know where to take you."
Emily nods her head and says "Yeah, you're probably right. I'll just enjoy my time with him and if things get farther, then I'll just see what happens."
All of us nod our heads and we all talk while driving to the mall.
*30 minutes later*
Once we pull up and park, it's not that full so we won't have to deal with a lot of people.
We get out of the car and start walking into the mall. I pull out my phone and say "I'm gonna call Liam and see if they're here yet."
As I look through my phone, I find Liam's contact but once I find it, I think "Wait. I don't ever remember giving him my number or him giving me his number but yet his number is in my phone. Oh wait. He must have put it in there when he called mom." I just shrug it off and I click his contact and it begins to ring. It rings and rings but he doesn't answer. I get his answering machine but I just hang up.
I look at the girls and say "He didn't answer. Do one of you have one of the guys' numbers?"
Emily raises her hand and says "Yeah. Last night I figured I'd swap numbers with the boys so incase a situation like this happened, we could call one of them. Anyways, I can call Niall and see where they are."
Me and Abby nod as we wait for her to say anything. Finally, she starts talking so we figure she's talking to Niall. When she hangs up, I ask "So, what did he say?"
Emily puts her phone in her pocket then says "Well, when we saw those girls outside the hotel, those girls were there for the boys. So, the boys ended up to have to sneak out the back and get to their car without getting noticed. They got to the car and they're driving now so they should be here in 10-15 minutes."
Me and Abby nod our heads in understanding. I say "Well, as we wait for the boys, anyone up for Starbucks?" I smile as I rub my hands together.
Abby and Emily nod their heads and we walk into Starbucks. When we get to the counter, I order a caramel latte, Abby orders a mocha frappucino, and Emily orders a caramel frappucino. Once we get our drinks, we walk out of the shop and start walking around the mall.
As we're walking around, my phone starts to vibrate in my pocket so I pull it out. I look on the screen and see that it's Liam. I slide the answer tab and put the phone up to my ear. I speak into the phone and say "Hey. You guys here?"
From the other end, I hear Liam say "Yep. Where are you guys?"
I say "We're by the entrance. We just got Starbucks. Do you want us to meet you halfway or should we just wait in front of Starbucks?"
Liam says "Just stay in front of Starbucks. We'll be there soon."
I smile and say "Okay. I can't wait for today. It's going to be a lot of fun."
I hear Liam smile then say "Yep. It's just gonna be me and you today. And we'll hang out with the boys too if you want."
I smile and say "Okay. Well I'll see you in a couple of minutes. Bye."
"Bye." Liam says and hangs up the phone.
Once I put my phone back in my pocket, I turn around but don't see Abby or Emily anywhere. I think "Hm? Maybe they just went to the bathroom." I shrug it off and just take my phone out again.
Suddenly, about a minute or two later, I feel a pair of arms come around my waist. I smile and put my phone in my pocket and put my hands on his but then I realize, that this body doesn't feel like Liam's. This body feels much firmer and his grip is tighter. I get out of his grip and turn around to see his face.
When I see his face, I recognize him and say "Connor? Why are you here? Why did you put your arms around me? We broke up remember?" I back away from him and make sure he's a distance away.
Connor walks closer to me and says "That's why I'm here. Molly, I want us to be together again. I want you to be my girlfriend again."
I shake my head and say "Im sorry but I have a boyfriend. He's going to be here any minute."
He smiles an evil smile and says "Well that doesn't mean we can't do something first." He suddenly grabs my wrist and pulls me to him. I run into his body and he wraps arms around my waist so I can't get away. He puts his head to my neck and starts sucking harshly. I wince and cry out a little because it hurts but he just keeps sucking. I try pushing him away but tightens his grip on my waist and then he starts biting me. I whimper is his hold as I feel it start to bruise and I feel liquid come up. I finally get tired of him so I punch him in the stomach but I guess not hard enough because as I run away, he's able to recover quickly and grab my wrist and pull me towards him. This time, he pulls me and my back is to his chest. As he starts sucking on my neck again, I build up the strength and take his arm and flip him to the ground. As he lays on the ground, I finally get the chance and run away.
As I'm running, I'm thinking "Where the hell was Abby and Emily through all of that?" I didn't realize but as I'm running, tears are running down my face
I run and run and then I see the bathroom signs. I run around the corner but run into someone.
From the speed, I accidentally end up tackling them and falling on top of them on the floor. When my vision clears, I see that I ran into Liam. Once he notices it me, he smiles but then it's fades. At first, he sees the tears running down my face but then he looks to my neck and sees the mark.
I see him looking at it so I quickly get up and start walking with the girls because they ended up finding the boys.
Liam quickly gets to his feet and calls my name. I don't answer. Him and the boys walk behind us and Liam calls my name again. I don't answer again.
He calls my name again but this time he grabs my wrist and turns me around to face him. He looks at me and says "Molly , what happened? Why won't you tell me?"
I sigh and go up to him. I lean up and kiss his cheek. I look him in the eyes and say "I will tell you later. Just give me some time to think about everything okay? I just want to spend some time alone."
Liam shakes his head and says "No. No way. At least take someone with you and today was supposed to be our day."
I sigh and say "It still is our day. Just give me an hour to think everything over."
Liam sighs and says "Fine. But please, take someone with you. Take Abby or Emily, i don't care. Just as long as you're not alone so something like that can happen to you again." He points to my neck.
I sigh again and say "Okay. I'll have Zayn come with me." I look at Zayn and say "Unless you wanted to shop around and look for stuff."
Zayn shakes his head and says "No. It's fine. I'll walk around with you."
I nod my head and say "Thanks." I look into Liam's eyes and I put my hand up and rub the back of his neck. I say "I'm okay. I just need to think and clear my head a bit. I promise I will tell you later. You just go have fun with Louis and the other boys and Emily and Abby okay?" I look towards Abby and Emily and they're looking at me confused. I pull them closer to me and quietly say "The reason why I didn't say for one of you two to walk around with me was because I want you guys to hang around and have fun with your guys. Don't be worried about me. I will tell you guys later too okay?" Both of them nod their heads and I look back up at Liam.
Liam looks at me with sad eyes so I put my hand up and rub the back of his neck. I say "I'm sure I'm okay. Like I said, I promise I will tell you later okay? I will text you later and we will come meet up with you guys okay? And by the way, how did you even put your number in my phone. I don't remember giving you my number you giving me yours."
He smiles and says "Oh. When I called your mom to see if you could stay the night, I put my number in your phone and then texted myself so I knew that it was you."
I smile and nod my head. I say "That's what I thought. Well anyways, we will meet you guys in an hour or so and we can all hang out okay?"
Liam nods his head and leans down and kisses me. I kiss him back and smile. I pull back and look up at him. I smile and say "I'll see you later." then pat his butt then walk away with Zayn.
I look back at him and see him smiling then walking away with the rest for the group. I smile and turn back around to walk with Zayn.
As we're walking, Zayn takes a breath and asks "So, do you wanna talk about how you got that mark of yours?"
I sigh and say "Well I don't but maybe it will help clear my head knowing at least someone knows about it."
Zayn nods his head in understanding and says "Okay. Well if you do want to talk about it, why don't you just tell me what happened?"
I take a deep breath and say "Well, when I was talking to Liam on the phone to find out where you guys were, i didn't realize that Abby and Emily left to go to the bathroom or something. Well when I ended the call, I couldn't find Emily or Abby anywhere so I just stood in front of Starbucks like Liam told me to. Well then, I suddenly felt a pair of arms come around my waist and I thought how quick that was for you guys but then I noticed how the persons' arms and body didn't feel like Liam's. So I turned around and saw that the person was actually my ex-boyfriend Connor. I asked him what he was doing here and he said he was here for me and he wants me back but I told him I was dating Liam and that you guys would be here any minute. Then he smiled really like evilly and I could tell he was thinking something bad. He said well that doesn't mean we can't do something first then he tugged me to him and he wrapped his arms around me so I couldn't get away. He started biting and sucking my neck and I tried getting away from him but he just held me tighter. Then when I felt him bite harder and blood starting to ooze, I punched him in the stomach but not that hard since he was too close to me and I tried running away but then he grabbed my wrist and pulled me back to him. This time he pulled me to him so my back was against his chest and then he continued to bite my neck. When I finally had enough of it, I took his arm and flipped him over onto the ground then ran away and found you guys. That's why I had a few tears running down my face and now I have to deal with this damn mark and it's going to hurt like hell."
At this time, I didn't realize it but a couple of more tears escaped my eyes and Zayn's arm was around my shoulders and he was rubbing my arm in comfort. My arm was around his waist and we were walking together.
I lay my head on Zayn's shoulder and he says "Well if you'd like me to, I can tell Liam for you."
I look up at him and ask "Really? You would tell him for me?"
Zayn looks down at me and says "Yeah, definitely. Do you want me to tell him for you?"
I nod my head and say "Yeah, but I'll be there with you when you tell him."
Zayn nods his head and says "Okay."
I wrap my other arm around his torso and hug him. "Thank you Zayn." I say.
He tightens his grip around my shoulders and says "It's no problem. And just so you know, if you ever need to, you can talk to me about anything. If you can't go to Abby or Emily and tell them, I'm always here if you need someone to talk to okay?"
I nod my head in understanding and say "Thank you Zayn."
He rubs my arm in comfort and says "No problem. Now, why don't we go get your neck cleaned off a little bit and then go grab a smoothy or something okay?" He smiles and looks at me.
I smile and nod my head as he takes my hand and leads me to the bathroom. Once we get to the bathrooms, we go into the handicapped bathroom so we don't get any weird looks if I'm in the male bathroom or if he's in the female bathroom.
When we get into the room, I sit on the counter and wait for Zayn. He grabs a paper towel and puts it under the sink and gets it wet. He rings it out a little so water doesn't drip all over me. When he rings it out enough, he lifts up his hand and looks at me.
He says "Now this is going to be cold and it may sting a little okay?"
I nod my head and he continues. When it touches my skin, I take in a deep breath and close my eyes.
Zayn instantly pulls back and stops. I open my eyes and look at him. I ask "Why did you stop?"
He says "I hurt you. I didn't mean to."
I smile a little and say "Zayn, it's okay. It's just cold and of course it's going to hurt a little. It's a new made bruise. It's okay."
He nods his head then continues. As he touches the spot with the towel, I try keeping my breath calm and try not to reveal that it hurts.
As he continues, I look at him. I smile a little as I see how hard he concentrates. He seems so careful and gentle.
Once he's done, I don't think either of us noticed how close our faces were to each other's. When he looks up from my neck, he moves his head and our foreheads are resting against each other's. I look into his eyes and he looks back. He looks down and looks at my lips.
"Zayn." I say lifting up my head from his. I look down and play with my fingers. I quietly say "I'm sorry Zayn. I just...I can't do that to Liam."
He lifts my head up to look at him. He looks in my eyes and says "But he did that to you. I saw how much that hurt you."
I sigh and say "Yes, it hurt me a little but he wasn't the one that hurt me. Liam tried getting out of the dare but Niall said he had to do it. When Liam looked at me, he looked at me with sadness. I could tell he didn't want to do it. Yes, it hurt to see Liam kissing my sister but it hurt more to see my sister kissing Liam."
Zayn sighs and moves so I can get off of the sink. I turn around and look at myself in the mirror. I look at the bruise and it looks better then what I thought it looked like before. As I fix my hair so then it makes the bruise less noticeable, Zayn wraps his arms around my waist and rests his chin on my shoulder.
I look at at him through the mirror and say "Thank you Zayn. For being here for me and helping me clean up the mark a little bit and for caring about me."
Zayn looks back at me through the mirror and says "You're welcome." He moves my hair out of the way and says "The mark looks a little better so now, it's just gotta heal on it's own. And I like being here for you. Just know you can talk to me about anything. And also know, that if Liam ever hurts you either emotionally or physically, he will not just get a stern talking or hitting by Abby and Emily. If Liam ever hurts you, me and the other boys will be sure to straighten him out. All of us care about you and now that mostly every day we get to hang out and be in class together, this year will just be the best."
I smile and turn around so I can face him. I wrap my arms around his waist and lean up to kiss him on the cheek. Once I do, I wrap my arms around his waist tighter and hug him. I say into his chest "Thank you Zayn. For everything."
Zayn hugs me back and rubs my back with his hand. He says "No problem Molly." and he kisses the top of my head.
I pull back from him and smile. "So, how about that smoothy now?" I say and smile.
Zayn smiles and laughs a little. He says "Well then, let's go get one and then we can meet up with the rest of the gang okay?"
I nod my head and Zayn takes my hand in a friendly way and leads me out of the bathroom and takes me to a smoothy vender.
After me and Zayn get our smoothies, we walk around and see if we can find Liam and them. Zayn looks at me and says "I'm just going to call Liam and see where they are." He takes out his phone and starts looking for Liam's number.
I get an idea and say "Wait," I smile and stop him. He looks at me confused and I say "Why don't we have them come find us? We could play hide n' seek."
He smiles and nods his head and says "Let's do it ."
