I went straight up to my room when I got home wanting more than to scream. I sat on my bed for a while thinking over the day, I felt nothing, only fear. There was a knock on the door and in came Zayn. "Hey are you ok?" He asked. I couldn't even speak, I shook my head and let the tears slip over my eyelashes. Zayn walked over and hugged me while I cried my eyes out. When I had no tears left to cry I decided I needed to confide in someone.
"He knows, I don't know how but he does." I sniffled while handing him the paper. He read and looked at me shocked. "Kendal, you can't be serious." He said. "That's why I need to leave, he knew I was the best agent and Simon would only settle for the best. He's using you to get to me." I whispered the last part. "You're not going anywhere, we'll protect you." Liam said walking in. I just looked down at my shaking hands. "Is there anything else you need to tell us?" Zayn asked. I nodded, pulling up my sleeves. "I lied when I said I didn't see the man at the interview, I just didn't want anyone to worry about me." I said. They looked down at the bloody bandages. "I understand, but what man? You always say you didn't see the man." Liam said after walking into the bathroom and grabbing me new bandages. "The man I saw at Simon's, when I went over to the window." They nodded and we sat in a comfortable silence while I changed the bandages.
"Don't be afraid to tell us stuff, we won't criticize you." Zayn said.
"What about the others?" I replied.
"They won't either."
"Prove it." I thought I stumped him there, but of course, he knew how to prove me wrong.
"Where short sleeves downstairs, see if they criticize you."
Why not? I went in my closet to change into a purple short sleeve shirt that clearly showed off my bandages. We walked downstairs with my heart racing faster than a sports car. Liam put his hand on the small of my back to make sure I would go downstairs.
We walked into the living room where Niall, Harry and Louis were. They immediately went quiet at the sight of my arms. Zayn, Liam and I stood awkwardly in the door way. There was a very uncomfortable silence until Louis screamed," Doctor Louis to the rescue!" and tackled me. I was laughing so hard I was crying.
After that little episode, we decided to watch a movie. After ten minutes and a lot of arguing, Louis got to pick the movie. He picked Paranormal Activity. I hate scary movies. I sat on the couch in between Louis and Niall, with Harry, Liam and Zayn on the other couch. I'm now ready to cry my eyes out and scream when there's a jump scare.
Wow, that movie was a bad idea. The movie was over and I was in bed realizing I was scared straight. I got out of bed and crept into the hall, it was quiet. Too quiet for my liking. I didn't want to be alone, so I ran across the hall to Louis' room. I creaked the door open as quietly as possible. "Louis" I whispered into the darkness. "Kendal?" He answered groggily.
"That movie scared me, do you mind if I stay with you?" I asked inching farther into the room. "Sure" He said making room for me. I crawled in bed and he put his arms around me. He placed a light kiss to my forehead and I felt a spark. It was like, a firework exploding where his lips touch my head. And I just forgot everything. In his arms, I forgot the pain, In his arms, I forgot about the job. In his arms, everything was perfect.
