But This Love is Ours

When Melissa's parents kick her out she is forced to live with her brother Liam but she discovers living with her brother and his friends is more dangerous than she thought.


6. Fighting

Mel's POV

"Wake up!" 

I jumped then slowly opened my eyes to see some blue eye's staring at me.

"Finally!" He said. 


"Shh" Sassy said. "Stop asking questions. Hello I'm Louis. Now get up, you're late." He said quickly and simply.

I got up wow I looked a mess I thought about taking a shower, doing my hair or something. Nahh I don't care what I look like they can deal with it.

I washed my face and walked out of the room I was in to see Zayn.

"You look terrible." He said.

"Gee thanks." I replied.

"Don't talk back." He said.

"Why not?" I asked.

"You better shut that mouth of yours before it gets you into trouble" He warned.

I rolled my eyes, trouble, I had already been kicked out of my house, got into gang violence and been kidnapped, I really could not see what more trouble I could get into.

*That's what you think.*

Suddenly I was struggling to breathe there was a hand clasping my neck. Zayn's hand.

*Told you.*

"Don't roll your eye's darling" He said slowly.

I creased at the word darling.

"It's unattractive" He said letting me go and walking down stairs. 

I followed and caught my breath. Note to self: Don't annoy Zayn.

I walked into what I presumed was the kitchen considering the small fridge in the corner a girl was sat at the table eating cereal well I say eating more pushing it around the bowl she looked troubled.

"Are you okay?" I said.

She said nothing.

"Are you okay?" I said a little louder amusing she hadn't heard me the first time.

She turned and stared at me then looked at Zayn who was on the other side of the room she looked scared of him, terrified. I't made me feel uneasy. 

"We don't talk." She practically mouthed.

"Why?" I whispered back suddenly becoming aware that her quiteness was something to do with Zayn.

"Not allowed." She said quietly shrugging.

"Why?" I asked.

"Look just shush, please" She almost begged.

I nodded.

She smiled looking a bit more at ease. Well at least somebody is.

"Punch me." Zayn said suddenly breaking the silence.

"What?" I said

"Punch me." He shrugged. "I need to see if you can fight so punch me."

Punch him? When I 'd just seen that he is literally capable of killing me? Punch him? This was a trick I'd punch him then he could have a simple reason to kill me. I don't see why he wouldn't kill me, that would hurt Liam and its not like Zayn cares about me. So why not?

"No." I said.

"Why not?" He asked. "You clearly don't like me."


"Because this is a trick your just going to use this as an excuse to kill me." I said.

He threw his head back and laughed.

"Darling if I wanted to kill you you'd already be long gone by now." He laughed.

"Then why am I here if your not going to kill me it would break Liam and wouldn't effect you."

I mentally face palmed myself. I'd just given him a bunch of reasons to kill me. Way to go now he defiantly will.

"True." He said. "But D'ya know what would break Liam more? His own sister being against him." He said smirking at the thought.

I finally understood. I was a weapon. A weapon to take down my own brother.

And Jake.

*Two weeks later*

Zayn's been teaching me how to fight I now know martial arts, boxing and can take down most of the gang easily I feel stronger now, more protected. I used to be the weak one, the girl somebody always needed to look after but now I can fight for myself and nothing has ever made me happier. I've also become quite close with the gang there's four of us Louis, Zayn, Penny and Me. Sometimes I miss Jake a little but I've decided I don't miss Liam he's an alcoholic just like mum was and I don't need any more family like that this is my family now.

Penny's become like my sister despite the first impression she's actually really loud I suppose its something about Zayn that terrifies her. But either way we look after each other. I've also become quite close with Louis he's actually really funny.

But there's Zayn.

He's scary, one day its "Mel your really getting better at fighting." the next its "Your pathetic, you don't even deserve oxygen." and those are direct quotes but I don't mind me and penny are freaked out by him together aha.

Tonight we have a big fight this other gang from a different part of town they keep making trouble with us and it was starting to bother us but they're amateurs and we know and have seen every move they make and could do it backwards if we wanted to, they didn't stand a chance. This was my first fight with a rival gang but like I said. I'm stronger now.

*That night*

I put of some acid wash jeans on and a oversized jumper that said "The Beatles" that Louis let me borrow for the week when we were talking about how we both loved The Beatles music. I then put on my doc martins and put my hair in a messy bun. Now your probably wondering where I got these clothes from *and even if you aren't I am telling you*  I borrow them from Penny and (on this occasion) Louis.

I walked down stairs to see Louis in some skinny jeans and a white top and Zayn in some black jeans and black top. We all stood at the bottom of the stairs waiting for penny.

She came down stairs in a pair of high waisted pale blue jeans and a t-shirt tucked in that said love will tear us apart and her hair down. She looked really nice I felt ugly standing next to her and I think it might have showed a little because Louis said:

"Hey don't worry, you're just as pretty as her." 

I smiled at that.

Then we all walked out of the house and into the car.

The drive was mostly silent except from faint music playing, I was Ed Sheeran, okay so I was in love with Ed Sheeran so I sang along to UNI.

*Can I just say I actually do love Ed Sheeran oml 'I see fire' though <3*

"Shut up." Zayn said.

I was about to stop singing then Louis said:

"Let the girl sing listening to her voice is better than silence, she actually kinda can sing as well, not as good a me though." Louis sassed.

Zayn looked ticked off by that.

We arrived just as the song stopped I took a deep breath and got out of the car. My first fight.Oh joy.
