I went out to see the boys a few times in the second half of the signing and I noticed that Harry seemed a lot happier than he was before lunch, probably because of the girl he met at McDonalds. Aww! The second half of the signing flew by and before I knew it, it was already time for Zayn and I to start heading home. I was sitting on a nearby couch with Danielle and Liam, listening to the two lovers sarcastically talk with one another.
“Do you want to head over to my place and order dinner?” Niall asked Zayn in the backroom after the signing
“I think I’m staying the night at Aprils tonight actually” Zayn told him
“Oh… are you planning on doing it tonight?” Niall whispered
Zayn nodded but looked a little uneasy.
I somehow managed to overhear that part of the conversation and I couldn’t help but freak out inside. What did he mean by it? I’m not ready for this, I’m only 16 and I just met Zayn like a week ago, but then again I really like him and he’s not like any other boyfriend I’ve ever had. We instantly clicked when we met and I just feel so comfortable around him now. Before I met him I always thought I would never turn down an opportunity like this. I guess now that I know him as a person it’s different, before I never thought I’d have the chance so I never thought twice about it.
Zayn approached me and asked if I was ready to go home. I anxiously said yes and we got security to lead us out to the car.
The drive home was really quiet, I was trying my best not to think about what was going to happen when we got to my house but the thought just kept haunting me. I looked down at my hand and started fiddling with my ring; I tend to do that a lot when I’m nervous.
When I was really young my mom gave me a promise ring and I’ve worn it every day ever since. Of course I didn’t know what it symbolized when I she had given it to me but a few months before she died she had told me that the purpose of it wasn’t to keep me from having sex until marriage, but it was to wait until I truly felt ready and knew it was with the right person. I’m not ready to break that promise I have with my mom even if it means saying no to Zayn.
“Why are you so quiet babe?” He asked me as we were nearing my house
“Um… no reason. I’m just tired that’s all.” I responded “I hope you don’t mind but I’ll probably be going to sleep early today.”
Zayn looked over to me and smiled. “Me too”
As soon as we got to my house, I ran up to my room to change into my pj’s. Zayn followed close behind and came in to drop off his bag then jumped onto my bed and watched me as I was jumping around the room struggling to get my pants on.
“I’m going to take a shower, I’ll be down in a sec” Zayn said as he walked over to the bathroom.
“Okay, I’ll order us a pizza” I told him as I made my way downstairs
I called the pizza company and ordered us a medium cheese pizza and 2 pops. I then sat down on the couch and turned the TV on to watch the Much Music countdown at 6. Minutes later, I heard Zayn’s footsteps as he came down the stairs. I turned around to look at him; he was wearing only a white towel around his waist and his toned upper body was still dripping wet, I couldn’t help but stare. He also brought his bag of clothes down and laid close to the front door. He quickly ran to the bathroom and changed into his clothes. Zayn then sat next to me on the couch, wrapped one of his arms around my waist and kissed my cheek.
“Hey April… I really have to tell you something” He looked straight into my eyes as he said this and his facial expression was totally serious.
“What’s wrong?” I concernedly asked him
“Over the past few weeks I’ve gotten really attached to you, emotionally and physically. April, whenever you’re not around the boys tell me I look sad or upset and you know what? The truth is that I’m literally always thinking or talking about you no matter where I am or what I’m doing.”
I tried my best to hold them back but the tears just came streaming down my face as Zayn admitted everything to me.
“I honestly love you like I’ve loved nobody else, it’s funny how I fell for you so quickly too.”
Zayn loudly sighed.
Anyway I wanted to tell you that I really don’t know if we’ll be able to continue our relationship anymore. It’s going to soon be announced to the fans that we’re going on a huge worldwide tour and we’ll be away from home for a few months.”
My heart dropped suddenly when I heard those words that I wished and hoped would never be said, come out of his mouth.
It took a moment for me to get it to set into my head.
“So is this the end of us then?” I managed to ask without bursting into tears
Zayn got up and reached for his bag and coat and opened the front door.
