No Bravery

I used to be Zayn Maliks little sister, but now I am one of the few humans left. I must stay alive at all costs, including throwing myself off a cliff into a river.


2. 2. Reunited with Loved ones

I was locked back into the small cage. Magnus left the room. Moments later Liam came in. Shock was written all over his face. I a blink of an eye he was opening the door. I crawled out into his arms. He picked me up and carried me into an open room. I was looking out onto the city. It had a large bed in it facing the windows. I turned around an sat on the bed. Liam sat next to me. 

"What's on your mind?" He asked. 

"Everything...." I said. 

"Like what?" 

"Well for one. Your eyes... They are gold. Not like any of the others. You are different. You show human emotions. But you're not human. Why?" I asked him. He shifted. I heard his deep breaths.

"My eyes well for one my host he wasn't like others. His mind was strong. He fought for years. Messing with me. Our eyes go to those colors when the host fully submits themselves. He didn't, he didn't disappear. He wanted to live. Those years were hard. He would hit me with emotion, after emotion. Relentlessly attacking me. He made me realize what it felt to love, to hurt, to be angry, to be jealous, to hate, to feel weak. He showed me that humans hurt. The emotion that was always strongest in him was compassion. Before he finally grew too weak to fight he showed me fear. Fear of being forgotten, fear of dying, fear for his loved ones. I never want to forget him. That's why I adopted his name, my eyes will never be different from now. I am who I am..... and I hate it. I hate the fact that I will be hated. That no one will look at me the way people looked at him. I envy humans." He told me. By this time we were both lying down. His breath was shaky. Life was perfect before this Zayn and his band were going strong. I wonder what happened to them. I regret not meeting them though. He stood up. 

"Where are you going..." I asked.

"I'm trying to be human.... enjoy your room." He mumbled as he left the room. The door opened and Zayn walked in. We attacked each other in a hug. I cried into his shoulder. 

"Crystal.... oh my god are you ok? Did he do anything to you? " He asked frantically while  examining my face. I laughed. I shook my head. He hugged me again.

"No he didn't Zayn.... he is different." I whispered. 

"How? I can't even see the old Liam. That thing is like the others. This is all a joke. Cris listen this is all to gain your trust. Then when you don't see it coming you will turn out like them." He said.

"Wait the old Liam?" I asked. 

"Yes he used to be my best friend. 1/5 of One Direction. Until the parasites got him. That out there is not Liam Payne. That out there is a monster that killed him." He spat. His words were venom. 

"I'm sorry Zayn.... I didn't know." I whispered. Zayn nodded. We laid on the bed together. 

"I don't want to leave you again." He mumbled. I moved closer to him. We silently fell asleep.


I woke up with the feeling of being watched. I turned and saw Zayn lying peacefully asleep beside me. I carefully got out of bed and walked towards the door. It was slightly ajar. I opened it a little farther and slipped out of it. I shut it carefully. I walked down the hallway. I reached the end and heard silent yelling. 

"Liam be careful." A woman warned.

"Burns don't you fucking dare question me!" Liam hissed.

"I'm not just telling you, you have kept her too long. You know the rule. Why are you keeping her and her brother alive anyway?" She asked, I froze.

"I don't know I just am." He hissed. 

"Liam I know what it is... you are developing human emotions for the girl. I don't see why you bother. She will only ever see you as a parasite. She can never reciprocate the feelings.Kill her now and give me back my human. I want him back Liam." She hissed.

"Burns don't even dare suggest that. Just because I have a stronger emotional link than others doesn't mean that I let them cloud my judgement. Now why do you want him." Liam questioned. 

"Why do you think. He is fit as fuck. I've sipped a few drops of blood from him once and awhile and he is so sweet. You know how they say when you drink straight from the vein you get their memories? Well I got some of his. He knows your host. He loved you at one time. Just think. He has to see the body of his friend being used by another. He has to have the constant reminder of his friends fate. Just let me kill him already. Save him the pain." She said. He had no response. 

"Crystal come here." He hissed. I turned the corner. "What are you doing? What did you hear?" He asked anger seeping from his tone. 

"I am.... the door was open and I was scared. I felt like someone was watching me. I went looking for them...... I heard everything....." I whispered my voice was shaking. He tilted my head up towards his. 

"How do you know it wasn't me?" He whispered.

"Your smell. There wasn't any and you smell really good all the time." I whispered. He chuckled. "Please don't let her hurt him. Please he is my only family left....." I asked. Tears threatened to spill. He turned around and she was gone. He grabbed me and ran towards my room. I heard Zayn yelling. Liam kicked the door open. She was holding him by the throat against a wall. Liam ripped her off of him. I ran to Zayn, he was coughing and gasping for air. Liam shoved his fist into her chest. It was now lodged in her chest cavity. She was screaming in pain. 

"I never said you could have him. My house my rules." Liam spat. 

"He was mine. She is yours. You can't have both." She gasped. 

"No you're right. But they are not mine. They are no ones. I had one rule burns do not drink from the vein and hurt them. You broke it. " He said calmly.

"Liam please I'm so sorry. Please." She begged. 

"I am the only one of us who truly understands emotion. All you are is scared." He spat. He ripped his hand back. He was holding a black web. It looked like a root. Burns laid lifeless on the floor at his feet. He walked over to the fire tossing it in. People came in and carried her body away. Liam walked away silently. 

"Oi stop!" Zayn yelled. Liam froze and turned around. 

"Yes?" Liam asked.

"Why did you do it?" Zayn asked. Liam looked at him confused. "Why did you save me?" He clarified. 

"Because she asked me. I'm sorry...." Liam said. Now Zayn was confused. "I'm sorry about your friend.... We don't choose our hosts. I really wish it wasn't him." Liam said sorrowfully. 

"Well I'm glad it was you compared to any other parasite." Zayn joked. Liam sent him a smile before leaving. I got up and before Zayn could catch me I ran after him.
