* * * Zayn's P.O.V * * *
I have no clue what to do. I've promised Alia that I won't leave her but I know I'll have no other choice to do. Management is strict enough on me and if I keep dating Alia their going to get even more strict on me. I tried to compromise with Paul but he won't go down. I have to think of something because I have my career and girlfriend at risk.
Alia and I were watching TV at the moment. The current show ended and I decided to go home. "Hey Al, it's getting late so I'll see you later" I said to her. "Alright then, thanks for clearing things up. I'll see you later" she said getting up and giving me a hug. She walked me up to the front door. She opened it and lead me outside, where I kissed her lips and we said our goodbyes. I got into my car while she walked up to her front door. She waved at me while I pulled out and raced away.
Honestly, everything in me was nervous to what was to come in the future. Alia doesn't deserve being cheated on. And management will do anything for the publicity. I'll just have to talk to Paul once again and let the boys know. All these thoughts were making my head ache. I concentrated on the road and made my way home.
* * * Alia's P.O.V * * *
Once Zayn left, I went upstairs to my room. I took my clothes off and changed into sweatpants and a Nirvana t-shirt. I fell on my bed and wrapped myself up with the comforter. I kept telling myself, Zayn would never do anything to hurt you. But my head wouldn't wrap around it. I couldn't fall asleep until 2 am. I keep flipping around on my bed, frustrated with myself. Eventually I fell asleep to some ocean wave music.
* * * Morning Time! * * *
I woke up to Syra shaking me. "Get up, Get up!" she screamed. "I-I'm up!" I yelled back. "Good!" Syra said and waked out. I yawned and sat up. I huffed and went to the bathroom. After I took a shower, I went to my phone and checked my iMessage. Zayn had text me saying, Hey, good morning babe, today @ Louis' place. The steaming hot water subsided my headache a bit but I was still feeling really lazy. I took out a black and white full sleeve shirt with the numbers 86 on it along with ripped light blue jeans. ( http://ak2.polyvoreimg.com/cgi/img-set/cid/113659163/id/WKJVujKX4xGSW5l5ZFZllw/size/y.jpg ) I really wasn't feeling well, but I didn't want to keep Zayn or the boys down. I put my hair into a ponytail and just brushed my eyelashes with some mascara. Seriously, I wasn't about to go all out anyways. I went to Syra's room and she looked at me like, are you okay? "I have a headache" I replied. "Yeah, then don't go? Wait, Zayn." Syra said then realized. "Yeah, it's fine it'll be gone in a little while." I replied. "Well you look cute anyways" she replied while grabbing her bag. "Same for you" I replied and we walked downstairs. We put on our jackets and left the house.

When we arrived, Louis opened the front door and pushed us in. It was the 3rd of December so it was pretty chilly. All the boys were sitting near the fireplace laughing and talking. "Welcome to Casa de Louis" Louis said greeting us. "Nice house Louis. Pretty impressive" I commented. "Thanks, love" Louis replied. Syra hugged Louis and I went over to the boys. "Hi guys" I said. "Hey Al" everyone commented. Zayn got up and gave me a hug and we sat down on one couch together. Everyone got immersed in talking while Zayn and I were pretty quiet. "Something wrong, babe?" he asked. "I just have this really bad headache" I replied. "Aw... Did you take some medicine?" Zayn replied. I shook my head, "I thought it would subside, but don't worry I'm fine." Zayn nodded. "So we're all gathered here for something real special." Liam said getting everyone's attention. "Alright?" Syra said. "Okay so we're going to do Secret Santa!" Niall screamed. We all clapped and got excited. Louis had a bowl with small slips of folded paper in it. He brought it forward to Zayn. "Okay Zayn starts! Al no peeking!" Louis said. I put my hands up in defense and watched Zayn pick up a slip. He chuckled reading the name, "This'll be interesting." Next it was my turn. I put my hand in the bowl and picked up on. I opened it and read the name, Harry. I laughed. Zayn looked at me and I shook my head. "No, no no" I said. He sighed. Next was Liam, then, Niall, then Harry, then Syra, and last but not least Louis. "Well now that everyone has gotten their person, let's lay down some rules" Louis said. "Of course you're not supposed to tell anyone, the expense limit is ₤100 so that gives you plenty of ranges to choose from" Louis said setting down the rules. We were all excited and ready for the Christmas season. My headache had eventually gotten better. "And ahem if you didn't already know a special person's birthday is on the 24th. Yeah, don't forget about that either" Louis said getting everyone's attention once again. "Yup you'll be on our A-list" Liam commented. "I'm expecting some Gucci, Prada, maybe Louis Vuitton if you want to be on my baddie list" Louis hinted at what he wanted. "Ha, in your dreams!" Syra rolled her eyes. "But from you, I'm expecting " Louis said nudging her. Syra scooted away from him and laughed. "Don't worry Louis. I'm sure you'll get everything you like" I said. Louis came up to me and hugged me. "See this is why Al is better than all of you" Louis said. I smiled. "Hey you better get off my lady" Zayn glared at Louis. Louis smiled at me, then glared at Zayn and got up. Zayn put his arm around my waist and pulled me closer. "How ya feeling now, babe?" he whispered in my ear. "Better" I replied. He kissed my forehead and held me close. We stared at the fireplace, the atmosphere was so warm. It was winter and Christmas was coming up.
Niall went up to the windowsill and got excited. "Hey guys! It's snowing" he exclaimed. "Really?" Liam asked. He went up to the window and looked out. "There's a blanket of white all over!" Liam confirmed. "Ooh, who's up for a little snowball fight?" Syra suggested. "Why not?" Louis said. We all got up and put on our coats. We walked outside to the backyard and sure enough, it was a winter wonderland all over. Syra and Louis were running after each other. Niall was on the ground making snow angels along with Harry. Liam was trying to make a tiny snowman. I was just standing by the door when Louis threw a snow ball at Syra and it hit me instead. "LOUIS!" I screamed. "Lou, you're such a dumb ass" Syra screamed. "S-SORRY LOVE" Louis apologized. "Nu uh that doesn't cut it." I said picking up some snow and making it into a ball. "Watch out, Al's going to get feisty" Zayn warned Louis. I ran after Louis and threw the snowball at his face. "That's it! It's war! Grab your boyfriend and let's go!" Louis yelled. "Alright!" I said. I looked at Zayn and he smirked. He ran towards me and we piled up snow to make a tiny fort. I looked at Syra and she eyed me. Besties become enemies. We ducked and the first snowball came. I keep balling up snow and throwing it at Syra. I actually made a few of them making Syra pretty pissed. She threw some and succeeded too but, our team was just too strong. Eventually Niall joined Louis side and Harry joined ours. Liam was the referee in this... Basically he was just watching and making videos.
After about 15 minutes of more fighting Louis' side gave up. I sprang up and laughed deviously. Louis started to fight with Harry about who was better. "Yesss! Losers! We won!" I yelled. "Bradford Bad Boy and his girl always win!" Zayn added. "Yeah!" I said trying to act baddie. "You're so cute when you try to act all bad." Zayn said looking at me. "I like your competitive side too." I replied. "It's getting cooold!" I said after a while. "Lemme heat things up" Zayn said before crashing his lips onto mine. Our lips went perfectly in sync. "Cut off and get a room you two!" Niall yelled in the back. I broke off and blushed looking at the ground. Louis laughed, "Let me treat you guys to some poiso- I mean some hot chocolate." "Alright..." Zayn said eying Louis suspiciously.
We went inside and Syra brought us all cups of hot chocolate. "I don't trust any of you guys in not poisoning this so I'd like Syra to taste this before" Zayn said. "Yeah, definitely kill me" Syra said sarcastically. "Trust me I didn't poison them" Louis said. "If you didn't then taste it Syra" I said going along with Zayn. "Fine!" Syra said taking my cup. She sipped on it, "IT'S FINE! I'M NOT DEAD!" she said. "Alright we're good" Zayn said. I took the cup back and drank it. Everyone was extremely cold so they gulped up the hot chocolate in seconds. After a while, the boys' phones starting to buzz. "Uh... It's Simon texting us" Liam said. "Apparently there's photographers outside and we're told to stay in..." he continued reading his text. Everyone groaned. I looked at Zayn worried, he read my expression and hugged me. "It's fine, I don't care what they saw or are going to do" he whispered in my ear. Honestly, we were going to be in trouble for being so childish.
Happy Birthday to Louis! I'm blessed to have my birthday the day before Louis' :D
