Zayn's POV

Life plays a tricky game. The game is inside the labyrinth. Some people ignore the labyrinth and enjoy their life with what they have and with their loved ones. Some people can't enjoy because the escape is the only thing they want desperately.

Even though I have everything in my life I can't just be happy. When the people we care about is falling apart and are so vulnerable, we can't just be happy that this didn't happen to us.

Louis and Harry

My two best friends have so much going on in their life and I couldn't help them with anything. I'm angry with myself. They have always been for me when I needed them. Now they needed me but the stupid myself can't do anything.

My thoughts were disturbed by someone. I looked beside me as Liam came and sat next to me.

"You alright?" Liam asked with worried eyes.

"I'm fine." I tried to give him a smile but failed.

"You are clearly not. First, you wouldn't end a sentence without a nickname when you are talking with me. Second, it's clearly written in your face." Liam rubbed my back and nodded me to say.

"Harry and Louis." I sighed. "It's just... I don't want them to be like this. I have you and an accepting family but I can't be happy when the people I care about are hurting themselves... Louis can act like it's fine and nothing but I know him, deep down he needs to be happy and his happiness is Harry only. And about Harry.. he's so fragile and sensitive when it comes to them. I-I would have lost him if I didn't go to his place at the right time. I'm not gonna let that happen again.." A lump formed in my throat as Liam held me in between his arms. He pulled back and pressed his lips against my forehead.

"Zayn... I know it must be so hard on you. They are my friends too. How about we talk to them? One last time, you talk with Lou and I will talk with Haz. Yeah? They need us, as you said."

"But.. what can I talk with him? I-I.." I said. Liam sighed and caressed my cheek.

"Zayn.. out of all the people you know Louis very well. Just go and talk." Liam encouraged me. I nodded and went outside.

While going to Louis' room my mind was blank. I don't know what to say it to him 'cause I have to be proper with my words. As I reached his room I saw the door was wide open. I went and stood by the door as I saw Louis sitting on his bed isolated with a piece of paper and a painful look.


He looked up as tears fell from his eyes. I rushed towards him and hugged him tightly. He buried his face in my chest as sobs left his lips.

"Hey Lou.. Shush.. it's okay. I'm here for you.." I mumbled sweet things but it didn't work out. After a few minutes, he pulled away and wiped his cheeks. Louis gave me the piece of paper which he was holding before.

If I could fly
I'd be coming right back home to you...

I could feel the pain behind the words written.

"Where is he now?" I asked slowly and kept my hand on his shoulder.

"I don't know, Zee. All I do is hurt him.. I broke him.." Louis whispered as if he had no strength left.

"Don't blame yourself, Lou. Haz hurts you too. Now, what are you doing to yourself?" I pointed out.

"Yeah... We both hurt each other but we were able to find our happiness.. but now it's all gone. I'm a coward." Louis stood up.


"No Zayn! I can't go and tell my dad that I love Harry and him only... Before Harry left this room he said he is letting me go because he loves me so much. Do you know how I felt after hearing that?!" He kneeled down. "He is gone and I'm getting married tomorrow. Could my life get any better?" Louis chuckled humorously. The pain was eating him up inside.
