Cathy POV

I’m still shocked of what I saw. I head home since we don’t have classes. I texted Tom that I can’t make it to join him.

To tom: Hey tommy, I can’t join you today. xx

From Tom: Why? :L

To Tom: Em’ not feeling well.

From Tom: Aw. Alright. Maybe next time.

To Tom: Yeah. Maybe next time. Sorry xx

I felt bad. I know that Tom likes me when we were young. He tried to tell me but we went to Paris, I thought were just gonna stay there for some days but we live there and I never saw him until now.

Okay back to the present. You wanna know what I saw? I’m currently mad at my bestfriend, but why?  Maybe I’m jealous? Okay I’ll say it. I saw a picture; Zayn singing (How did I know that he’s singing? He’s holding a mic. Duh) and holding the chin of a girl. Wanna know who the girl is? My bestfriend! Alex! Why didn’t she tell me? I’m mad at her. Arghh.

I fall asleep while thinking of the picture. I heard my computer popped and that woke me up.

Natalie: Hey. Are you done with our homework? xx

Homework? What homework?

Cath: What homework?

Natalie: History class. You forgot? It’s due tomorrow. Mr Russo won’t accept late papers.

Cath: Dang! I totally forgot. But there’s no class, right?

Natalie: Yeah. But Mr Russo sets his own rules. Yenno.

Cath: Yeah right. Thanks for reminding me J xx

I looked at the time. It’s 7:04 pm. School is still open. Thank God. I forgot my book so I need to go back there.  I went outside and there’s no star. Guess it’ll rain. Hope just rain.

I got my book and wait for the elevator to open. My locker is located in the fourth floor. It’s pretty dark here and a bit scary.


The elevator opened. I almost screamed of what I saw. Zayn.



“What are you doing here? It’s a bit late”

“I should be asking that question”

“I fall asleep in the library. Nobody woke me up. You?”

“I forgot my book. Wait, you know me?”

“Yeah. You’re Alex’s friend right?”


As I said that the lights went out and I felt someone grab me. Is he scared? I heard a loud ‘boom’ outside. I almost hugged Zayn. My biggest fear is thunder! I was shaking. It’s raining too hard outside. The elevator stopped and I think were stock. Just the two of us? Sweet…hihihi(evil laugh). Just kidding.

“Are you alright?” we both said in unison.

“Yeah” we both said.

“I’m afraid of that. The loud noise..” I said in a trembling voice

“I’m afraid of this. Dark.”

“Really? That’s something.”

“Hey, you’re shaking. Here” he hand me his blazer. He’s still wearing our school’s uniform.


“There’s no signal in here.”

“I forgot my phone…” I said still shaking.

“Guess we’ll be spending our night here”


He begin to sing.

“I’ve tried playing it cool”

“But when I’m looking at you”

“I can ever be brave”

“Cos you make my heart race”

What is this song? Is it their song? It’s nice. I love his voice.

“Shot me out of the sky”

“You’re my kryptonite”

“You keep making me weak”

“Yeah frozen and can’t breathe”

I think I’m falling inlove with him…

“Something’s gotta give now”

“Cos I’m dying just to make you see”

“That I need you here with me now”

“Cos you’ve got that one thing”

Deeply. Deeply. Dee—

“Are you alright now?”

“Yeah. The song was lovely.”

“You like it?”

“Yes. I like it very much.”

“Thanks. I really like your friend, Alex”

Boom! My heart explodes. I can’t breathe. I felt that water was forming from my eyes. I’m crying? Because the one I love likes my bestfriend. Life is truly complicated. Good thing it’s dark. I can hide my tears.

“Are you okay?”

“Yup” I said trying to hide my trembling voice.

“Are you crying?” Great. He noticed.

“A bit. I’m still scared.” I said

“Come here” he put his arm around me. Trying to keep me safe, I feel safe but the pain is still here. I close my eyes and fell asleep.

“What are they doing here?”

“I don’t know”

“What did they do?”

“Why are they sleeping here?

I heard some voice. I slowly opened my eyes. I saw—Zayn sleeping on my lap.

“Miss what are you two doing here?” said the old man with two companions.

“Oh crap. What time is it?” I asked ignoring his question.

“6:01 am” he said politely.

“Thank you” I said and stood up. I forgot Zayn was on my lap, his head bumped the floor.

“AW” he said rubbing the back of his head.

“Err. Sorry. I really need to go. Thanks” I said and gave him a peck on the cheeks.

“No problem” he said and winked at me. I almost died but I have no time for dying right now cos I have a paper to rush.

I saw the three old men faces




I even heard them say “What was that all about?”, “…”, “Young people these days”

I laughed when I got out of the school. That’s the best night of my life. Oh I forgot, it’s not that “best” cos he confessed to me that he likes my bestfriend. Psh. Silly me. I’m so hungry right now I could eat a whole turkey.
