I sit by the soccer field, thinking. How could things have gone so wrong? When Niall came back, I thought the summer would be fun and relaxing. Why would Zayn do what he did? He must have planned it, because it was virtually perfect timing for him. I was with Niall, and we were kissing. Was Zayn spying on us? The thought makes me shudder. I trace the pattern of my soccer ball with my finger, distracted by the thoughts that are creating a storm in my head. I don't know how long I've been sitting there when Lacey comes. "Hey, are you alright?" she asks worriedly. I nod. "Niall's looking for you," she adds. I highly doubt that Niall got over what Zayn said this quickly, but I don't say so. "Okay, I'll find him soon," I promise. "I'll tell him," she says, smiling at me before she leaves. Heaving a sigh, I stand up, pick up my soccer ball, and start to head for Liam and Niall's cabin. I'm not sure it's where he'll be, but Liam will probably be there and he might know where Niall is. I'm startled by a pair of hands grabbing my shoulders. Thinking it's Niall, I don't scream. But when the hands turn me around, I see it's Zayn. "Ally," he says. "I think I love you." With that, he leans down and kisses me. I struggle to break away, but he's stronger than me. "Don't resist me, baby," he murmurs. Disgusted, I wriggle violently until he's forced to stop kissing me. "Why would you do that?" he asks, backing a step away from me. When he backs away, I see my chance. I bolt toward Niall's cabin as fast as I can. I must be crying because when Niall sees me he immediately rushes over and wipes my tears away with his thumb. "Ally, what happened? Are you crying because of what I said? I didn't mean it. I really didn't. I love you." I shake my head. "It's not that. When I was coming back here, he...he..." I trail off, unable to speak. "He what, Ally?" Niall asks, his eyes taking on an anger and a passion that I've never seen from him before. "He...he kissed me," I say, my voice shaky and unsure. "He grabbed me from behind and turned me around and kissed me and I tried to get away but I couldn't and..." I break off, hiding my face in Niall's shoulder. "Did he do anything else?" Niall asks. He tries to sound gentle, but I can tell he's furious. "No..." I stammer. "He just kissed me. And then I ran." Niall rubs my back comfortingly. "It's okay, sweetheart. I'll make sure he stays well away from you in the future." I'm still crying and clinging to him, so he picks me up and carries me into the cabin. "Liam isn't here because he and Lacey went somewhere," Niall says to me. He sets me down carefully on his bed and examines me. "Are you sure Zayn didn't do anything else to you?" I nod. "I'm positive." Niall nods too, looking a little calmer. "Do you want to watch a movie?" he asks. "Yeah," I say, still in shock over what happened just minutes ago. Niall starts the movie and lays behind me on the bed. My back is right up against his stomach and I can feel his warmth. I try to concentrate on the movie but I can't. "You okay, sweetheart?" Niall asks halfway through. "Yeah, just tired," I say. A few minutes later I feel myself drifting off. I'm not quite asleep yet when Niall kisses me lightly on the cheek and whispers softly, "I'll keep you safe."
