A Loss For Words

Peyton Skies has been deaf since birth. She only communicates through sign language or writing. So when the new student, Niall Horan, tries to talk to her, she can't exactly hear him.

           {Peyton's POV}

                As we all walk into the classroom, I stop to talk to my translator, Nate. He signs to me what my teachers say since I can't hear them. 'Hey Peyton, you good?'

           'Fine.' I sign back to him, annoyed that he's asked me the same question each class. He nods at me as I begin to turn around to walk to my seat. I walk through the narrow aisle until I reach the back and sit down next to Liam. I watch as Harry grabs Niall and Zayn's arms and drags them to Mr. Tomlinson's desk.

         I watch as Mr. T starts to blush while looking at Zayn and I smirk, nudging Liam in the arm. He turns to me with a questioning look and I nod my head in the direction of were Zayn and Mr. Tomlinson are staring at each other.

      'How long do you think it will be until they get together?' I sign to Liam, who starts to laugh, I assume, since his chest is moving up and down rapidly. I wonder what it would be like to hear his laughter. I imagine what it would be like to hear in general. Being deaf really sucks and I wouldn't wish it on any of my enemies.

     Its hard sometimes, being deaf. I'm just lucky that I have friends to support me. My parents don't support me because they left me when I was old enough to care for myself, which was only nine years old. I don't even think that's old enough to care for yourself and I'm just really grateful that Liam's family took me in.

    Me and Liam have been living together since I was nine years old. Since I'm 17, that means we've been living together for eight years. We live in a small flat together that has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, thank god. Liam is 18 so he decided to get a place of his own and take me with him, I guess. And I'm very glad he did.

   'I say two weeks.' Liam signs back to me, answering my question and snapping me out of my thoughts.

   I smile, 'I say one.'

   Liam smiles at me, then turns to Harry, who I didn't know was back. I look back down at my sketch pad and continue where I left off, which was Niall's hair. I feel eyes on me and I look up and turn to see a very red faced Niall and a blushing Zayn.

   Niall turns a really deep crimson when he sees I'm looking back at him. I smile at him and turn back to sketch. I put it away sheen Liam tells me that Mr. Tomlinson is starting his lecture. I look over at Nate and see him signing at me about some Shakespeare thing, which means Mr. Tomlinson is talking, and also keeps staring at Zayn, who can't get rid of the pinkness that seems permanent on his tan cheeks.


  A/N So, sorry again about the shortness of the chapter, they will get longer. I promise. Anyway, what do you think about the Zouis moments? Do you want Lirry to happen faster? What about Neyton (Niall + Peyton)? Comment, favorite, like.
