When The Lights Went Out

All Lexie could heard were the distant gun shots. All she could do was hope Lauren wasn't in the way of those bullets. Then, " BANG!" One loud gun shot one shot that would change her life forever. Who did this bullet bring into her life, and what secrets does he try so desperately to hide??????


3. A life forgotten

A/N: Hi I'm back and this chapter, I have to say is my fave so far:) PS Lallypop enjoy it cause this chapter will introduce Lauren:D ENJOY!!!!

I was heading up to the loft with breakfast. Lauren could really cook using anything, but today we risked going into town to get some real food. Zayn had been recovering really well, but he's been getting restless and I'm afraid that if he works his injured leg too much the wound will open again.

When I got upstairs I saw Zayn sitting in bed reading a book from the nightstand. He looked up and smiled when he saw it was me. I had introduced Lauren to Zayn a few days ago and she was speechless. I think she reminds him a little too much of his life before all this. I understood I suppressed those memories too. You can't be the person you we're before, it only made you weak.

"So what ya got there Lex," he said, he had lost his accent and sounded mostly American but I could still hear the English in his voice.

"Biscuits," I said with a smile. I went to sit down on the chair near the bed. By now it felt so familiar it could have been my own bed. I gave him a plate and let him eat. I had some too. When he was done he set the plate on the bedside table, took a deep breath, and looked at me. His expression was so serious.

"Um Lex can I ask you a favor?" He seemed so nervous.


"Um well... I um..." He was seriously nervous.

"Hey, come on you know I won't be mad about anything you ask." I said in the hope to calm him down.

"Ok well then... Could you please let me get out of this bed." I opened my mouth I say something then he said, "Now before you say anything hear me out. It's been nearly a week and I haven't moved from this spot. I have done everything you asked and all I want is to get out of this bed."

I had to think about this. I didn't want him to get worse because I made a mistake. Then I said, "Fine"

I helped him down the stairs, luckily we were nearly the same hight, so that helped.

When we got down we both fell on the coach which was falling apart at the seams. Lauren came over and offered to keep Zayn entertained so I could get some sleep. She was a great friend, she had brown hair and I had blond and she had brown eyes and I had blue, but other than that we were the same. I was grateful for her offer I hadn't slept well for a couple of days and it was getting harder to do everyday tasks. I looked up at Zayn who gave me a slight nod. Which let me know it was ok.

I trudged up stairs and collapsed on the sleeping bag we had laid out. The one bed we had was only for if one of us got really hurt like Zayn did. When I closed my eyes I instantly fell into a dreamless sleep.
