Blair

Zayn put her down and she skipped over to me.

I crouched to her level and she grinned up at me, holding my face with her tiny hands.

"You awe very pwetty." She said adorably.

"Why thank you, gorgeous." I replied, kissing her cheek.

"Sarah, this is Blair. Blair, my sister." I looked up at him wide-eyed .

That made a lot more sense.

"Blair? That's a stwange name." Sarah said, tapping her chin as she looked up at me.

"Indeed." I laughed, picking her up and walking over to her bed.

"Play twain with me!" She said excitedly.

"Tomorrow, Sarah." Zayn said blankly, checking his watch.

I turned to face him and gave him a pointed look.

Never say no to a kid asking to play train.

"Maybe just for a little while." I said, turning back around and she happily ran over to her toy box.

She dug in it for a while then came back with a conductor hat and a whistle.

"You be the dwiver, Poopy." Sarah said, handing him the stuff.

"No." He said, narrowing his eyes at her.

"Zayn.." I said, giving him puppy eyes.

"Fuck-" He sighed, running tatted hand through his hair. "You owe me." Mischief danced in his eyes.

"Yayyy." She clapped happily.

"Come on Blair, sit next to me." She said, patting the spot on her right with a toothless grin.

"All aboard." Zayn said nonchalantly, making me laugh.

"Aren't you a ball of sunshine." I said between laughs.

"Laugh and I'll kill you." He said seriously, making me sober up Immediately.

That put a stupid smirk on his face as he began conducting the train.

______________________________________________________

Zayn put a sleeping Sarah on her bed and kissed her head.

He looked at her one last time before we exited her room and the house.

Not before getting hugged to death by Sarah's caretaker, Martha.

When we sat in the car, Zayn looked down at his hands for a while before speaking.

"I know I can be the devil sometimes." He paused, letting out a dark, humorless chuckle.

"But even the devil needs love." He finished, starting the car and driving away.

"I know. You're a sucker for your sister." I said, laughing off the chills his words gave me.

"Tell anyone and I'll shoot your brains out." He said, seriously, glancing over at me long and hard.

"Sure you will." I replied sarcastically.

Just as we were about to bend a corner, an SUV pulled up out of nowhere and blocked the road.

"You have to be fucking kidding me." I heard Zayn mumble from next to me.

He slammed on the brakes and swiftly retrieved his gun from under the seat.

"Stay here." He said before hopping out of the car.
