It always starts with one drink

I met Zayn Malik at a pub when I was 18, and he has been my life ever sense. I wouldn't have it any other way and I'm happy to be falling in love next to my best friends and "the boys". I want to have that happy ending, even if this all started with one drink.

13. Pick up


Irina and I had to go pick up my older sister, she had just graduated Nursing school. Why she came down here to see us, instead of having us coming up to see her still flies right past my mind. Maybe she just wanted a break from everything or mom sent her to check up on me and make sure I'm not doing anything bad.  I'm not really sure, Anyway, off to the airport. I wonder if Zayn and Niall are awake...


They went out and did their own thing for the next couple of days. In those couple of days Zayn never left Meredith's mind, nor did 'Emily' leave Zayn's thoughts. Niall and Irina went on some more dates and seemed to be happy with each other, Zayn and the boys met up every other weekend to catch up and not do work before they had to start planning for tours. Zayn thought about calling Emily everyday, but then he thought about the person he was before he met Emily and he pushed his thoughts to the back of his mind, he wasn't going to become soft again. He couldn't put himself out there like that. It wasn't like him. Meredith almost called him once, but decided against it because it had only been a few days after they last saw each other and she didn't want to seem clingy. "We aren't aren't even dating", she explained to Irina one night, "Well I mean, I'm not even sure what you would call us... Friends maybe? nothing more then friends I guess...". Irina and Meredith had been best friends for years and each went to the other person for anything. It almost seemed like each knew just how to respond to the other person's situation what ever it might be. "You want to date him. It's that simple, you don't want to see him with someone else, you want to talk to him without seeming like you're trying to hard. In short you either want a relationship with the guy or you're just going crazy", Irina laughed at the last part as she pat Meredith on the shoulder, "You should call him".

Niall stopped by about half an hour after Irina and Meredith had been talking. He walked himself inside and sat down in the kitchen. "So girls what are we up to today?" he laughed at himself sitting there asking about girl talk and thought to himself, "Who knew I would be doing this, it almost seems so odd sitting here so happy with asking about girl talk. It is kind of like talking to Zayn about Emily... Maybe I should tell her...."  

"Nothing Nialler don't worry. Just girl talk" Meredith replied quickly. 

"Mer- um Em, this isn't just girl talk. We can tell Niall, I trust him," Irina caught herself before calling Meredith by their childhood nickname of 'Mere' she walked over to Niall and smiled as he slipped his hand around her waist pulling her close and kissing her shoulder, "Emily wants to call Zayn, but she doesn't want to seem needy. Do you think you could help me get them together again?". Niall hated when she would ask him something and bat her eyelashes, which she did just then. 

"I'll do anything to get Zayn to shut up about trying to- I mean... Um nice weather we are having", Niall stopped quickly, changing the subject to something ridiculous, because just as he said that Irina & Meredith looked out the window as if noticing the weather for the first time. It was raining cats and does, and there was thunder and lightning, maybe even a little bit of hail as well. "Babe? What do you know?" Irina stepped away from Niall and looked at him as if he was a dog that had hid something in the backyard. 
"Nothing... Well, I mean.... Zayn wants to get together with Emily and he just wont shut up!..." Niall continued for a while until he finished his story sighing and adding, "But you can't tell him I told you he'd kill me, and he has been boxing and fighting more so he might legitimately be able to- oh shit" he had told the one thing that Zayn made him swore he would never tell to any of the girls he go involved with. Zayn was going to kill him.
