( Jade's P.O.V )
We pull up in front of my house, and I feel an anxiety grow upon me. I still don't know anything about what Zayn and Jared were talking about, and it's fastly making a huge knot grow in my stomach.
Zayn parks and I get out of his truck. I hear his footsteps behind me, while I unlock the door and step in. He shuts the door behind him and I sit on the couch.
He sits alongside of me and lets out a deep breath.
"So.. How much did you hear?" He lets out a huff.
"Why do you need to give that guy Jared money?" I ask.
He stays quiet for a while, until he speaks up.
"Okay.. Jade, i'm going to tell you something that you may not want to hear.. But you need to know this."
I feel my heart speed up, and I can't imagine what could be so serious.
I nod my head and swallow.
"Jade.. I'm a drug dealer."
I feel my expression harden, and my eyes become wider.
"You.. You're.. What?" I stutter.
"I'm a drug dealer."
Zayn.. Drugs.. Dealing.. No this can't be the truth. Zayn's so innocent, other than the fact that he boxes.. My mind wanders back to the day he took me out on a picnic, and we had that silly lettuce fight and everything.. He's beyond sweet and he's not the type to do such a thing.
"Jade, please tell me what you're thinking." Zayn pleads.
"I.. You can't.. How long.. Why Zayn?" I finally let out an understandable question.
"I needed the money babe, i'm not doing my best right now and I have to stay on my feet. It was the only way at this point.. A job would just mess up my session time, and takes too much time to process. My tournament starts in a month or so, if I get enough money from there.. I'll stop, okay?" He places his hands around my little wrists.
I begin to understand Zayn's situation and nod my head.
"I don't want you to think differently of me Jade.. I'm still the same guy you know me as."
"I know, I know.. I just didn't see this coming." I laugh while still being in a mind state of shock.
"Come here." He pulls me in with his arms and I scoot closer to his side.
I place my head on his shoulder, while he holds me.
"Why did Jared start to chase me once he saw me?" I ask with a pinch of worriedness.
"Because.. He doesn't want anyone knowing about what we do."
I pull back from Zayn's grasp and look up at his beautiful brown orbs.
"Will he come back for me?"
Zayn's furrows his eyebrows together and shakes his head.
"Not if he knows what's best for him baby."
I feel a bit better with his courage and cute nickname but I can't help but wonder..
What if he gets me all alone?
(so guys, this is a SUPER short filler chapter, and I promise the next chapter will make up for this one being so short. Ily. - Myaaa. xx)
