Zalfie: Our Story

Hi, I'm Zoe Sugg. Some may know me as Zoella from my YouTube channel. Others might know me as Zoe from my blog. You might've even heard my name mentioned in a certain pairing of two people. Zalfie? Yep, I'm that Zoe.

My life was pretty boring until I met my best friend; Alfie Deyes. We bonded instantly and our friendship rocketed. But neither of us expected what would happen when we began to fall for each other..

It's not flawless but it's ours.
Our Story.


1. the Beginning

There are a million ways to begin this story. 

But I'll start with the first thing I can remember about us. The first time I laid eyes on Alfie.

Basically, we locked eyes at the local coffee shop and I was instantly hypnotized. From that day on, my life changed for the better. I knew it from the start. He completed me.


His deep brown eyes were the first things I noticed. They drew me in and never let me go. I was lost in his eyes but I didn't need to be found. I felt like I already was. He flashed a crooked smile at me, making me melt in my place. I'm sure I looked like a fool, drooling on myself and trying not to stare at this beautiful person. I took a deep breath and turned my back to him, so I could regain feeling in my legs. I wanted to go right up to him and introduce myself, but my shyness got the best of me. It was just in my nature to be shy and hidden. My mind kept going back to that boy and his charming looks. All of the sudden, my best friend, Louise, grabbed my shoulders and shook me back to reality. 

"Zoe?" She waved a hand in front of my eyes. "Zoe Sugg? Are you there?"

I blinked a few times and felt my cheeks tint pink as I realized where we were. I wonder how long I had been staring at him. Too long, is my guess.

"What just happened?" I asked with a confused look on my face.

"I was telling you about finding Darcy's new dress at Primark. Then you kind of blanked out on me." Louise took a step up in line. Darcy was Louise's 2 year old daughter whom I absolutely adored. Her bouncy curls and sweet little smile could instantly make me feel better any day. 

"Oh sorry," I laughed lightly. "Continue." 

"Well, it was just hanging on the rack and Matt pointed it out to me actually. I knew I had to have it from the moment I laid eyes on it. So I checked the price and it was only 8 pounds! Pretty cheap for a Primark dress and.." Louise babbled on while my eyes wandered over to where the dark-haired, mystery boy had been standing. Of course, he already disappeared. I sighed to myself and nodded at Louise, pretending to listen. 

We patiently waited for our drinks, while I tuned in to all the noise in the shop. There was a woman speaking into a tiny microphone, taking someone's order. I could hear the blender mixing a fruit smoothie. Several conversations spread through the little room. But I was quiet. My brain did the talking for me. Mostly about that boy. 

I wondered if I'd ever see him again. He must've lived near here if he wanted to stop at this coffee house. Not many people came here besides the locals. This was actually my secret getaway if I needed to relieve some stress or something. I would sit and read a good book or sit on my laptop, or even just people-watch while I sipped my coffee. I especially loved visiting in the winter. I would curl up on the comfy little couch next to the fake fireplace and drink from my mug filled with hot chocolate. It was complete bliss. Usually, Louise and I came here to get together and have a nice chat about what was going on in our lives. 

We took our drinks and sat at a tall table in the corner. Louise moved on to telling me about some ideas for her new video on her channel. I paid more attention this time to what she was saying. We both posted YouTube videos on our own channels and we had actually gained quite a few subscribers. I have made lots of new friends across YouTube and it has boosted my confidence way more than I would've thought. 

In the back of my mind, I secretly hoped that boy would come back. Maybe I could work up the nerve to talk to him. Maybe I could get his number. Oh, who am I kidding? It would take a miracle for me to actually see him again. This town was bigger than I thought.

Louise and I finished our coffee, I said goodbye and drove home. Back to my little room and back to my normal, everyday routine. Just me, my family, my friends, and my camera. 

It wasn't much but I enjoyed every minute of it. I loved making videos for my subscribers and I loved meeting new people. But for some reason, something stopped me from introducing myself to the boy. There was something special about him. And I could not stop thinking about it.
