Don't Tempt Me

I had everything going for me until my father died when I was 11. He tucked me in, he kissed my forehead, he gave me hugs, and he was my number one supporter. Now all I am is a bad girl. I used to be a good girl like the ones I would make fun of now. I don't care what people think of me wearing those short shorts that showed my smileys or wearing those low cut shirts that made it known that I had boobs. I hear them talking in the halls sometimes in my way to class. Comments about me weren't always bad. And there is no way in Hell my reputation could ever be turned around.

15. Could you love me again?

I still don't have a reason to like a person after one day but there's a first for everything. Like who does he think he is, popping into my life as of yesterday and making me like him. Hopefully this is a short thing. It's so cute though...wait! What am I saying?!!? I can't! He will only hurt my heart until it shatters into an oblivion just like when my father left the world. I don't even remember the last words I said to him. The ice pack on my cheek was freezing, making my cheek sting to a burning sensation. It started to rain once again when I got home. I watched through my window next to my bed as rain droplets fell down the pane. I closed my eyes for a second, hoping not to fall asleep.

Zayn's POV

I drove to Maia's house, rain falling as I went. My lip felt puffy and my eye felt swollen but that didn't matter- all that mattered was if Maia was okay. I passed by an alley way where a bunch of guys surrounded a girl. I quickly turned down the alley and honked my horn, getting the men's attention. They ran off suspiciously and the girl was left frozen with only her shirt and underwear on. I grabbed the towel from the back of my car and ran to help her. She was blonde and scrawny with bruises all over her body. Her head hung low as she covered her bare legs, feeling uncomfortable as he stepped closer.

"Here," I wrapped the blanket around her but that's when she looked up, "Evelyn? Evelyn Lloyd, is that you?" The girl I let walk out of my life was standing before me and that's all I can say.

"Yes," Evelyn replied. I quickly wrapped her in my arms and squeezed tight, scared she might walk away from my grasp again.

"What happened?" I examined her face that was now filled with bruises and bags that fell lower than I've ever seen bags gone before. She used to be the brightest soul I knew. The one I could look to to smile. The one I kissed to make feel better. The one I never wanted to see cry-and I still have that feeling now. I rose in anger and asked her again, "What happened? Who did this to you?"

"Did what?" She shuddered.

"Who made you cry? Who gave you those bruises? Did all of those men just do that to you?" I asked.

"I haven't been crying its the rain," but all of that was a lie, her blue orbs were now blood shot and puffy.

"You're lying," I picked her up, cradling her as she laid her head down on my chest.

"Where are we going?"

"In my car until you tell me the truth," I simply reply. She has some explaining to do. We got in my car and I turned on the heater.

"No those men weren't the reason for all these bruises," she sighed,"last month my mother died...and my father hasn't been the same since. I cried every night for you, Zayn, hoping you would come save me....but you didn't."

"I'm sorry- I didn't think you wanted me anymore and never wanted to see me again. You made that clear when you last spoke to me. I would have came...I was in as much pain that you were in. I was a wreck."

"I lied, Zayn. I lied...I really did want you back but I couldn't give in so easily after you hurt me so bad. I thought you would fight for me," she started to cry even more and her voice rose as well.

I wiped her tears away, "I'm sorry- I know it's not ever going to be good enough but I'm sorry."

"You're right it won't."

"How'd you end up being surrounded by those men?"

" father came home drunk and started to thrash out and throw things. He even took our his gun from when he used to work as a police men and started to shoot through out the house. That's when I heard him coming up the stairs and I knew he was coming to beat me. I popped open my window and jumped out my house. I ran away from my apartment complex into this alley way and a bunch of men started to follow me from behind. I started to puck up my pace but others stared to surround. They began to pry open my clothes and touch me," she started to sob even louder and all I could do was watch,"but then you got there just in time."

"I'm sorry," I pulled her onto my lap, "I'm so sorry my sweet Evelyn."

"Ummmm....would you like me to drop you off somewhere?"

"Yes, please," she began to smile again. I could feel the car light up as well as her face."Can you drop me off at the local bakery? I was planning on going there in the first place. I have become great friends with the owner. She knows about everything and is helping so don't worry."

"Ok...well if you need anything...just call," I told her.

"Umm...I don't have your number anymore. I deleted it so I wouldn't have the temptation to call," she giggled,"even though I memorized it."

We both laughed at her attempt to forget about me.

"I never forgot yours..." I told her,"I'll just text you."

We finally made it to the bakery and rest of ride was quiet. We said good bye and I watch Evelyn walk out of my life once again.

Maia's POV

*3 hours later*

I woke up to the sound of my front door being knocked on.

"Oh my gosh! You need ice right now," I said while touching Zayn's cheek, "what took you so long?"

"Nothing, babe, it's okay. And you need more ice! He looked like he hit you hard. I swear I'm gonn-"

"'s okay...what took you so long?"

Zayn's POV

"I ran into a girl I used to know," all I want to be with Maia is honest. I refuse to make the same mistake as I had with Evelyn.

"Oh....and what happened?" She asked.

"A bunch of scum were trying to take her, and I saved her," I made sure to tell her everything down to last detail even the fact the Evelyn was my girlfriend. We were in the kitchen now and she made tea for us.

" really hurt her..." She said.

"Yes I admit I did but I promise I've changed," I pleaded for her to see that I have.

"I trust you. Go take a shower and leave you clothes outside the bathroom so I can dry them and then come downstairs so we can watch TV, okay," she bit her lip.

She is so damn cute!

I kissed her on the lips and held her waist tight then slowly let go as she led me to her upstairs bathroom and gave me a towel and slammed the door in my face. Probably wants me to be fast to kiss more. I smirked.

"Love you, too," I jokingly yelled through the door.
