“Hey I was looking for you all over” I hear the smooth voice once again and I’m pulled out of my thoughts. I look over my shoulder to find Zayn walking towards me. He walks over and sits on the swing by my side.

“What are you doing here all by yourself?” He asks and starts swinging. I stare at my French manicured nails avoiding Zayn’s gaze.

“Hey... are you ok?” he whispers now stopping his swing and holding the chain of my swing. I bite my lower lip and look at him shaking my head. He doesn’t say anything waiting for me to say something.

“Ryan asked me out” I say finally finding my voice.

“And?” he asks

“I told him I need time?” I say but it comes out as more of a question.

“I know Ryan is a good guy and I’ve practically known him for like forever. But I don’t know how I feel about him, I’m confused. I don’t know whether I like him like that or just as a friend. And I don’t want to lead him on, or promise him something which I can never give him.. Oh God! I don’t know what got over me.. You probably are getting bored by my sob story..I didn’t mean to bug you.. I’m so sorry” I immediately apologize as I realize I’ve spoken too much.

“Hey hey.. It’s ok..” he says as he reaches over and squeezes my hand and continues “we’re friends right? And you can tell me whatever you want because that’s what friends are for right?” he says softly.

I nod my head and smile.

“So continue?” he asks

“Are you sure?” I ask him sheepishly and he nods.

“Today when we were dancing, he suddenly told me that he likes me. I really didn’t see it coming. So obviously I freaked out and left him standing there all by himself. He thinks so highly of me and I don’t know whether I can live upto his expectations. And if it doesn’t work out then I’ll lose a great friend....forever..I don’t know what to do” I conclude.

Zayn lets out a deep breath and runs his hand through his raven hair.

 “Hmm... A wise person has told –Don’t over think, just let it go” he tells with a mature look.

“Who ?” I ask dumbly.

“Eh..Yours truly” he points his thumb towards himself and smirks.

I punch his shoulder lightly and snicker.

“Well I’ve really missed this” he says grinning at me. I raise my eyebrows in response.

“This smile of yours” he finishes as he smiles too.

“Oh by the way I’m having a barbeque at my place tomorrow with the lads. Would you like to come? Niall’s cooking” he says excitedly.

“Sure but what’s the occasion?” I reply

“Umm nothing really. Actually it’s like our little ritual, we’ve been doing it for 3 years now. Once every year we meet at one us’ house and have like a little party, just the 5 of us. Like last year’s it was Harry’s house. This year it’s at my place. You’ve already met Lou, you can get to meet the others too” he says.

“Ok but are you sure my presence won’t be intruding?” I ask unsure.

“Are you kidding.. They’d love to meet you” he says confidently.

“Alright then what time is it?” I smile and ask.

“Around 12? .. I’ll text you my address” he says and I agree.

“And now I think we better go inside before your family starts thinking that you’ve eloped with the gorgeous band boy. Not that I would mind it.” he smirks and stands up from his swing.

“In your dreams Mr.Malik” I smirk back at him.

We walk side by side towards the garden to join the others.
