Poetry - Zayn Malik Fanfiction

Zayn Malik. He's sweet and caring. Never would he hurt a soul. That's his cover. His dirty past is built of lies and destruction. He finds a girl, a girl by the name of Noel. What keeps them sane? Poetry.

“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.” - Haruki Murakami 

"What?!" Sasha sputtered, raising her knees to her chest. "If we run, he'll kill us!"

Noel clenched her teeth, eager to escape the man and his van. She eyed Sasha, putting on her most serious look. "We'll be gone. Please, listen to me. If we run, we can survive and call the cops. This isn't freakin' optional." Sasha opened her mouth to spit something back, but Noel was already dragging her out.

"What the fuck?" Sasha whispered, frantically looking around.

Noel grabbed her by the wrist and ran. Ran as fast as she could. The two girls were soon sprinting through the busy streets, dodging pedestrians and ducking under road signs. Each step was a jolt of pain through the lungs, and Noel felt as if she would give out at any moment.

"Where are we going?" Sasha asked between panting breaths. 

"Turn here," Noel said, mouth dry. They turned into a coffee shop, not any coffee shop. It was Noel's coffee shop. Since all the workers knew her, it was good. They would try to save them if the snake tattoo man ever came. Noel decided to call him Snake.

"W-why here?" asked Sasha, flopping down into a soft chair. "This isn't a good time for a coffee break." A drop of sweat fell from her forehead.

"Call nine-one-one," Noel instructed, catching the glance of the cashier. "Now."

"Alright, alright," Sasha breathed. She dialed the number, and put the cell phone to her ear. "Hello? Yes. There's a man who just tried to catch us, well- he did catch us. He put me and Noel in this big van and made us try to rob a bank. We just ran away from him. Yeah. Mhm. Oh, he had a snake tattoo and a bald head. He's super tall." Sasha covered the phone with her hand and looked up at Noel, saying, "A few police already caught him. He's going to jail for kidnapping." Noel smiled, glad they were safe. Sasha put the phone back to her ear. "Okay, thank you so much. Bye." She hung up.

Noel sat in the chair across from Sasha, letting out a sigh of relief. "Can you believe what just happened?"

"No," Sasha said, shutting her eyes. "I really can't."

"So, he's gone, right?"

"In jail for fifteen years."

Noel twiddled her thumbs, thinking to the future. "So when we're thirty three he's out to get us again."

"He wouldn't do it again; he knows the consequences." Sasha slumped further down in the chair, arms resting on the sides. She groaned.

"Alright," mumbled Noel. She perked her head up. "Zayn."

"Hm, what about him?" Sasha grumbled.

"He must be wondering where we are."

"Who cares?"


Just then Zayn burst through the door, head whipping around. He spotted Noel and ran to her, a stunned face on.

"Zayn!" Noel smiled, then jumped up and hugged him. She smelled his familiar leather jacket, closing her eyes. She couldn't be more happy to see her boyfriend.

"How'd you know I was here?" Noel asked, sitting back down.

"We," Sasha corrected.

"How'd you know we were here?" Noel let Zayn sit on the armrest next to her. He settled his skinny arm around her shoulders.

"I saw you guys on the news. It was like, live or something. You were KIDNAPPED?" He arched his eyebrows, still in shock. Closing his eyes, he shook his head. "Anyway, it showed clips of you two running off, and I saw you come in here."

"I'm surprised there aren't any people asking us questions," said Noel, giving a questioning look. Zayn just shrugged.

"Well, I'm glad you're okay," said Zayn, kissing Noel on the lips. 

"I hope we're okay," Sasha whispered. That made Noel's heart beat.
