Loads of stuff is going on right now so I might be updating less frequently but I won't stop!
So please hold tight for a few! As I have school and other major things to do also!
And I might be making a few things up for the story so just try to imagine it because it won't be a huge deal.
* * * Syra's P.O.V. * * *
The thought of Zayn liking Alia was eating me. I had worked with these boys for only 6 or 7 months but that doesn't mean I don't know them! Zayn is a good guy, to be honest, but he did have a past also. Zayn had dated Rebecca, Geneva, and the latest Perrie. As much as Zayn is loving, his anger boils over in a split second. Lately, he's been going back and forth with Perrie. They had been constantly fighting before they broke up and Zayn had said a few things to her. I just can't let Al get into this. She's a beautiful girl and she's going to get ruined by Zayn. Truth is, Zayn isn't going to love her, he's going to make it seem like he loves her.
Al and I just finished up The Purge: Anarchy and boy was it a HORRIBLE flim! We weren't even paying attention because I was too busy getting work done on my laptop while Al was on her phone. I had a weird suspicion that she was talking to Zayn but I didn't want to guess. I shut off my laptop and closed my eyes for a rest.
* * * Alia's P.O.V. * * *
Aw, Syra had fallen asleep. I started texting Zayn and he was keeping me company. We were talking about life and how the fame is to him. He asked a lot of questions. How I got here, How I like it here, Who's in my family, If I have a boyfriend... That last one made me blush. He was soo sweet. And Syra is right about one thing. He clearly likes me. Zayn freaking Malik likes me!!! I don't think I'm worth his beauty but it's whatever. Our last texts of the night were:
BadBoyInDisguise: It's getting late love. You should get some sleep
Me: Alright then. Have a good night!
BadBoyInDisguise: You too love. See you tomorrow ;)
I don't know if Syra is right or wrong but I think Zayn is worth a shot. I mean, he is extremely sweet and he sounds like a loving boyfriend... "Ugh Al you are getting carried away!" I said to myself. I decided to go to sleep on the couch since Syra was sprawled out too.
* * * * * * * * * * Next Morning * * * * * * * * * *
I woke up to Syra's phone ringing. I groaned and kicked Syra a few times to get up. She rubbed her eyes and answered the phone. "Mhm... Yeah we'll be there shortly. Thanks" She said into the phone. "W-What's up?" I asked with sleepiness in my voice. "Nothing... We just have to be at the studio in a little bit." She answered and got up off the couch. "I'm going to take a shower you can ready after me kay?" She said and left. I went upstairs and took out an outfit to wear. ( http://www.polyvore.com/crochet_infinity_scarf/set?id=115018237&lid=1592101 ) It was pretty simple but effective. Syra got out of the bathroom and got ready while I hopped into the bathroom. I stripped down my PJs and got into the shower. I opened the water and let it pour down my body.
After my hot relieving shower, I put my clothes on and did some makeup, focusing on my eyes ( http://www.funmag.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/eye-makeup-photos-15.jpg ) I slighting curled my hair from the tips and did it in a half up and half down style. "C'mon, you ready? Let's go go go!" She said in a hyper voice. I grabbed my purse and walked out.
We both walked into the studio and saw that everything and everyone was gleaming! Everyone was getting set up. We walked toward the dressing rooms and there were our 'little clients.' Harry, Niall, Louis, and Liam were sitting on a couch talking while Zayn was looking out the window talking to someone on the phone. "Hiii boys!" Syra yelled. Everyone looked up and smiled saying their hi's. "Hellorh, there." I said with a wave. "Aha, did management take you in as an employee?" Liam asked. "Uh yeaaah." I replied with a smile. "That is awesome. We seriously had nothing to do with it." Niall said. "Aha... Of course you guys did. Thanks a lot..." I said and meaning it. Thanks to these boys I had finally gotten a good job. "Aaa it was nothing, love" Louis said. "We're glad to have you" Harry added. "Awh..." I said.
"Okay lets get to work!" Syra said. And she added, "Al, you can get Harry, Louis and Niall. I got Liam & Zayn." I gave her a look like... 'I see what you're doing' and she just shrugged. She was trying to keep me away from Zayn. Speaking of Zayn, what the hell was he doing? He was still on the phone near the window and he looked pretty mad. "Alright c'mon boys" I said making the boys get up and sit in their chairs.
I did Harry's style first. "You're up Mr. Styles." I said and grabbed my water spray. I sprayed it all over his hair fluffing it up and then combing the front upwards. Spraying a little bit of hairspray but keeping it natural. "Soo, what's up with Zayn? He didn't say hi or even talk at all." I asked Harry. "He's talking to Perrie I believe, he patched up with her lately and he was just fighting with her on the phone now." once he replied my heart sunk down. "Oooh" I said without hinting disappointment in my voice. "But trust me his eyes are all over you." Harry added. "Yeah right" I rolled my eyes and moved onto Louis. "Your hair looks good today!" I said approaching him. "Oh yeah? I just let it be today." Louis replied. I simply combed his hair in the usual way. Then continued onto Liam. "Zayn was asking about you in the morning when we got here." Liam said as I approached him. "Oh really? Why?" I asked confused. "I don't really know" He replied. I did Liam's simple quiff and went over to Zayn.
He didn't seem to be on the phone anymore so I tapped him on the shoulder. He turned around and grinned. "Hey what's up?" I asked. He shook his head and sighed, "Nothing really." "You can tell me you know." I urged him to speak. He grabbed my hand and led me out to the balcony of the studio suite. He scratched the back of his head and spoke, "I got back together with my ex last week, and things aren't just working out. She's using me for promotion and..." He drifted off. "I see... Go on" I replied. "You've caught my eye and I just can't concentrate, like last time you were here. All eyes were on you because you're just so so beautiful" He said. I was fully taken aback. "Z-Zayn that's really kind of you." I managed to get out. "I don't like Perrie a lot management made me go out with her about a year back and then she actually clicked onto me at first but then she started getting cold. And with you being around a lot more... Perrie is just not the one." He went on. I didn't speak at first and just looked down. I managed to look back up and collect myself to say, "Zayn I wouldn't want to get into your relationship that way. I understand that Perrie isn't the right feeling for you but, I don't want to be the cause of your guys' breakup." He groaned and to be honest, I felt offended. Bruh, I'm trying to help your relationship out here and you're groaning on me as if it's my fault! "Alia, can we at least try to?" He urged again. "Zayn... If it means that much to you fine. But I don't want to get in trouble for this." I replied. "Yeah, Syra had warned me enough. I know what I'm doing." He said. I chuckled. "Her and Louis are about to have a thing and I'm pretty sure management won't like it very much, little miss hypocrite" He laughed. "Hey!" I said in a warning tone. He raised his hands up in defense. I looked at the view from the balcony, holding onto the railing. Zayn took out a cigarette and lit it to life. I gave him a disgusted look. "What?" he asked after taking a few whifs. "Smoking is such a turn off." I said looking away. Zayn threw the cigarette down to the floor and crushed it with his foot. "Whatever you say, love" he said. I looked at him and smiled. Suddenly, someone knocked on the balcony door. It was Syra and she motioned us to get in. She walked away and Zayn came up behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist. I looked up and his chin was resting my head. He let go of me and backed away. "I-I'm sorry I just can't resist your beauty." Zayn said looking straight into my eyes. "It's okay... Let's get in before someone finds out." I said. We walked in and all eyes were on us. "C'mon guys get into the studio before you guys get yelled at" Syra said staring right at me. All the guys walked out and Zayn gave me a apologetic look before leaving. Syra pulled me away and started yelling, "What the hell do you think you were doing out there?! Didn't I warn you about Zayn?! He's going to suck you in! Ali TRUST ME you do not want to get into him!" "Syra! I'm not a baby for God's sake! I know what I'm doing! There's nothing wrong with Zayn! I'm only helping him out! So could you please lay off the protectiveness for a bit?" I snapped back. Hurt was written all over Syra's face and I felt very guilty. "Sorry, Sy-" I said before she cut me into saying "Well then I hope he fucks you up hard enough for you to realize I was right!" She said before storming off.
I wanted to cry and I wanted to just curse the world. For a boy I might have just risked my biggest friendship. The tears started to roll down my cheeks without me noticing. I sat down against the wall with my knees hiding my face. How was I suppose to survive here in London without Syra? She was my only freaking hope in coming here. School starts in less than a week and I have no clue where it is and how I get there. I got up and took a tissue and wiped my tears. My waterproof mascara and eyeliner was working so strong. But my eyes were red. I heard the door open and looked in the direction of it. "Zayn?" I asked. He walked over to me, turned me towards him and took my face in his hands. "What happened?" he asked softly. "Nothing..." I replied. I had calmed down but you could tell I was crying. "Tell me." he said through gritted teeth. "Syra and I just had a little argument" I said looking down. "She's gone too far now" he said while wrapping his arms around me in a hug. "This is all my fault, I snapped at her when she was trying to help me" I said. "So, she doesn't want me to date you?" he asked. "She doesn't even want you near me! But I wasn't going to listen to her! I'm old enough to take my own decisions" I explained. "You know, she is right. She's known my problems and she's looking out for what's right for you." Zayn said. I started to cry again. "Sh Sh don't cry. If I have to I'll stay away from you. I'll limit our talks to just professional wise." He said. "No Zayn, I'll fix this myself." I escaped from his warm hug and dialed Syra's number on my phone. She answered and I started talking, "Hi Syra, I said I was sorry though... I kind of need your help.... Yeah I know but I think I should be able to make that decision. Well where are you? Because I need you! I don't have a car! I'm completely new to this city! Please? I'll die... Syra... Okay fine." I cut off the phone. Syra had agreed in keeping me with her only unless I made it up to her. "You shouldn't beg, love. I could've helped you out" Zayn said. "Syra is my best friend I wasn't going to let her go!" I exclaimed. "But next time, I'm always here for you. Take care, love." Zayn said before leaving.
I walked out after a few minutes of clearing up my eyes to make sure it didn't look like I cried. I walked towards Syra and tapped her. "Leggo?" I asked. "Mhm..." She mumbled and we walked away.
Later that night, I got a text from Zayn. 'Meet me in the morning at 9 at the Starbuck's few blocks away from your house' I replied with 'Okay?'
Syra was still not on talking terms with me but I'll break the ice in the morning.
Well shiaaat that was a long update! It took long to write too! Just making up for the infrequent updates later! Hope you liked it. -ZaynLoverxX
