Not In That Way *Completed*

There is always that one little thing that can keep a person stable. That one little thing that makes a person feel alive. The thing that can make a person smile even when they are having a bad day.

For Cora Smith that thing is more like a someone. Her someone is Zachary Dawson. Her long time best friend and the person that saved her when her life was in shambles. For years, she has been battling for his attention against all the other girls around her. However, little did she know she had him wrapped around her little finger since the very beginning.

Join Cora on her journey in discovering the truth about Zachary, while all the while she is consumed with the fear that, in the end, the only words she will hear from him are, "I'm sorry, believe me, I love you, but not in that way......"

*Based on the song, "Not in That Way" by Sam Smith*


7. Chapter 6

A/N: Hey guys!
This chapter will probably be pretty short. I have a lot of stuff left to prepare for, for my trip, so I just wanted to give you guys a chapter. It will basically just explain what situation Cora is in now. I hope you guys enjoy it! 

Chapter 6 

Two hours later, the smile still hadn't left my face. I felt like I was on cloud nine. It seemed so stupid to be reacting like this to such a simple gesture, but he really meant a lot to me. His worry meant a lot to me. I could see his fear when he first walked into my hospital room. Ever since he left he never really mentioned anything about it. He only wanted to talk about school or a new movie that came out last week. He seemed like he wanted to ignore my injuries as much as he could. 

I am so happy that all of this unneeded distance is resolved now. As much as it embarasses me to say it, it killed me just to be away from him for a day much less a week. I wish that none of this would of happened. Everyday I used to wish that my mother would come back, my father would get lost, and my brother would be my best friend again. However, I know that, that will never happen. Possibly only in death. I continually say this to everyone, (Pssh, who am I kidding? I don't talk to anyone.) but Zach really does mean everything to me. He changed me for the better and as much as I don't want to admit it, I am kind of happy that everything turned out this way. If it hadn't I would've never moved to Arizona and I would've never met Zach. As much as I hate living with my father, Zach is my getaway. He always has been and he always will be. He distracts me from everything that is happening and makes me feel like I am meant to live in this world. Like I don't deserve to go die in a hole, like I thought that I did for so long. 

After hearing Zach say that he actually cares and that he wouldn't be able to live without me, I feel like a whole new person. I feel on top of the world and nothing can bring me down. Through all the happiness, I can't help but face how accurate Zach had been. I hate seeing him guilty about something that he can't control. He was mostly right. No, he doesn't ruin everything. He doesn't even ruin something. I just feel like these feelings are a little more than I want to let on about. It just scares me to death that one day I might let something slip and he'll leave me. I don't think I can live without him. He doesn't think of me in that way and I know that, but I can't help my feelings. He has, his girlfriend, Nicole and once again, I am left with no one. Except for him. I hate that he has such a hold over me, but I have to face the facts. I never wanted it to come to this, but....I'm in love with him.  I'm in love with someone that I can never have. 


*2 and a half months later*

Since I was able to convince the doctor to let me stay at the hospital until I was completely healthy and healed, I am being released today. I was able to get him to see that if I had simply fallen down the stairs on my own that I would most likely not have a severe injuries as I would if I was beaten and then pushed down them. All of my injuries are healed, but I still have a slight limp and a ragged scar at the back of my head. Today is the day that I have to face that man again. I never wanted to see him again and I am simply hoping that somebody will come in and tell me that I can't go home that I have to live else where. 

Zach has came by and visited me almost everyday and I think that it is safe to say that we are completely back to our normal selves. As I continue to pack my things back into a bag, there is a knock on my door and Zach peeks his head in. 

"Hey." he says as he steps through the doorway.

"Hello!" I reply, grinning at him. 

"You excited to get out of here?" he asks.

"No, I don't want to see him." I groan.

"I'm not letting you be around him. He didn't get arrested for this?" he answers.

"I don't thi-"

"Miss?" someone calls, knocking on the door before opening it.


"Oh..I didn't realize that you had a visitor... I just wanted to know if you had somewhere to go. You know since you can't go home." she smiles.

"What do you mean?" I wonder.

"You can't go home, sweetie. That is a crime scene. Your house is under lockdown. Do you have somewhere else to go?" she says, making a large grin spread across my face. 


A/N: Hey guys!

Just like I promised here is the chapter for next week. I know that it was kind of an awkward ending, but I didn't really know how to end it. The second part should be up by the 15th.
