I lay there, silently crying, my shoulders shaking. I lean up on my elbows, rubbing my eyes.
"God.." I mutter to myself, still facing down on the bed.
Idiot. Idiot. Idio-
"Niall?" I hear my name.
I freeze. I think my heart may have stopped beating momentarily.
"Niall? What's wrong?" I hear footsteps crossing the room, then I feel the bed shift as he sits down.
I tremble when he places a hand on my back.
I turn to meet a pair of familair eyes. But they are laced with concern that I have never seen in those chocolate brown eyes.
"Zayn?" I manage.
"Niall? Were you crying?" He asks, reaching a hand out to brush a tear from my cheek. I just look down. "Niall? Why were you crying?"
"I.." I bite my lip. "I thought you left." I mutter, hoping he didn't hear.
"Niall, I would never do that to you." he says softly, wrapping his arms tightly around me.
"Where were you?" I ask, noticing how perfect he already looks. Oh, who am I kidding, when wouldn't he look perfect?
"I had to take a shower. My hair was.." he waves his hand in the air, his face pained. I laugh. He smiles.
"What?" I ask, coughing a bit to cover the laugh.
"I've never heard your laugh. I like it." he smiles, his eyes soft. Suddenly, a question pops into my mind.
"Zayn?" I ask. "What happened? Last night you just... what happened?" I ask. He sighs.
"Since that day I kissed you..." he shakes his head. "I don't know. So, I started to avoid you."
"I noticed." I start to play with the blanket.
"Sorry. But anyways... when I saw Perrie kiss you yesterday... I guess something in me just snapped, and I realized that I couldn't stand to see the you with.. well, anyone. I hated even seeing Louis talk to you." he chuckles. "Niall, I'm so sorry.." he mutters softly, running his hand across the bruises along my stomach.
"It's fine. They don't hurt so much anymore." I say, laughing softly at the change in Zayn.
"That doesn't make me feel any better." he says softly. I smile, looking back up to meet my face. " I don't want the boys to know, not yet."
"Alright." I say, smiling still.
"I'll see you later." he stands. He turns before pausing. He turns back to me, cupping my face and pressing his lips lightly to mine. He pulls back, smiling at me before turning and heading out. "Oh, and Niall?" he says, pauising outside the door.
"You might want to put some trousers on." he chuckles lightly before closing the door.

By the time Liam comes to get me a few hours later, I'm dressed and look a bit more presentable.
"Hey, Niall." he smiles, opening the door.
"Morning." I sigh, following him to the house.
"Niall?" he asks, looking at me oddly.
"Yea?" I ask, shifting uncomfortably.
"Are you alright? You're walking kind of funny..."
"What are you talking about?" I laugh, pausing to try and hide my blush.
"Dunno. Just kind of looks like you're walking with something up your ass." he shrugs continuing into the house.
I notice Zayn in the kitchen, who apparently heard our conversation, smirking at the ground. Louis is eyeing him suspiciously.
