I slowly opened my eyes and immediately regretted it because a searing pain went through my skull. I really need to stop drinking.
"Giaaaa wake up!" came the voice of my best friend and roommate Adelaine.
"Geez Ade not so loud." I grumbled as I woke up and went to open my door. There she was looking perfect as usual while i looked like crap.
"Wow you look like crap." she said as much.
"Thank you captain obvious now may I ask why you woke me up so early?" I asked.
"We have a meeting about the tour." she replied.
Oh crap I had forgotten about that. Wait I should explain. My name is Gianna Anderson and I am one fifth of the all girl band ‘the fab five’ you may or may not have heard about us. We recently got our big break when we topped the charts with our single. We also opened for other bands like The Wanted and other musicians like Ed Sheeran. But we hadn’t quite made it yet. Hence the meeting with our manager Peter Evans who had discovered us in this small bar back home in London. We worked really hard, now here we were trying to make it in America. It’s really not as easy as you think but it’s also a lot of fun for me and my girls.
Oh my girls where do I start? The five of us, Adelaine, Samara, Lana, Madison and I have known each other our entire lives. We grew up together in a small town and have been with each other through everything. We all had the same dream since the day we discovered we could sing. Our parents never really supported us but even that couldn’t stop us.
As soon as were old enough and had saved some money. We got out of the town and moved to London. We worked odd jobs and dealt with disappointment for a whole year, until Peter saw us and took a chance on us. That’s when things really looked up for us. We were soon introduced to our first boyband. The Wanted.
I am so grateful we met those boys and they were struggling just like us. So they helped us a lot. We did mash ups and put them on youtube and soon enough our name was out there. When they had their headlining tour they asked us to open for them, and that was the most amazing thing that ever happened for us. We had a lot of fun and had a bond with those boys that no one could break.
"What are you smiling about?" asked Ade as she put a plate of pancakes down.
"Nothing just thinking about the past. Did Peter say what the meeting was about?" I asked taking a sip of my coffee.
"No just that it’s something good." she replied just as a knock came through the door.
I opened the door and in came Samara, Lana and Madison who lived in the apartment next door.
"Woah you look like hell." commented Lana.
"So I’ve heard." I replied rolling my eyes.
"You really need to stop going out with the boys and partying like them." said Madison. Little miss saint.
"Really Maddie? Not now, not the time." I groaned.
”Wait why am I the only one getting a lecture Samara was just as bad as I was.” I said. And she did look just as bad even though she was dressed for the day.
”oh I’ve heard my share.” said Samara.
"Okay you need to go shower and get ready or we are gonna be late." said Adelaine in a firm voice.
Well that’s Ade our fearless leader. As much as I disliked being told what to do I knew she was right. I quickly showered and got dressed and was ready in fifteen minutes.
"How do I look?" I asked.
"Sexy as usual." said Lana.
"Aww that’s why your my favourite!" I laughed hugging her.
"Ughhhh." said samara in fake disgust.
"Oh don’t be jealous Mara I love you too." I said with a grin.
"Oh it’s not that it’s this." she said shoving her phone at my hands. And yet again the world was buzzing about One Direction. Those five arrogant know it all. Yes we don’t like One Direction but before you judge us you need to know why.
See we have some sort of history with those boys. They insulted us once at some party calling us the wanted groupies. That night things had escalated so fast and there was nearly a brawl between the two bands. Which led to the world saying that we had been sleeping with both bands.
"Let’s go the car is already here." said Ade looking up from her phone. I gave Samara her phone back. We all left our apartment and closed the door behind us. We got downstairs and found our van waiting for us. We greeted our driver Patrick who then took us to our office, what we saw shocked us.
"What the..?” Asked Lana wide eyed.
We all looked at each other but then Samara sighed and all eyes were on her, see Samara was a social media addict so she knew everything that was going on. Though right now I kinda had a feeling I knew it too. One Direction were here too which meant possible running into them. I was not looking forward to that at all, especially seeing that jerk ass who thinks he’s god’s gift to women. And no I am not talking about Harry Styles. I’m talking about Zayn Malik. Ugh how I hated that guy. Every fiber of my being is on fire just thinking about how much I hate him.
"Anyone knows what the hell this meeting is about?” I asked yawning.
"No idea mate, but I’m thinking it has something to do with the tour." said Liam as we pulled over to our management’s offices.
As usual the place was packed with fans. We stopped said hi and took pictures for a while before going in. We quickly got into the elevators and rode up to the 12th floor. When we got there we saw will our manager talking with Peter Evans.
We knew that man, he was the fab five’s manager which mean that those witches were around here somewhere and as if on cue, the elevator dinged and out came the said witches looking hot. What? I’m a guy I can appreciate hotness when I see it. We all stood there in silence glaring at each other when peter cleared his throat.
"Good you are all here. Let’s go to the conference room shall we?" said Will.
"Excuse me?" said Gianna ‘the bitch’ Anderson. This girl gets on my fucking nerves.
"He said we should go in." I said slowly just to rile her up.
"shut up Malik I heard what he said dumb ass." she snapped. Damn she’s sexy. Wait what? I did not just say that.
"Yes you did." said Niall stifling a laugh while I gaped at him. Gianna just smirked and walked into the conference room. Fuck my life.
We went inside and we sat on the opposite sides of the girls. Of course with my luck I was facing the devil reincarnated. While Harry on my left was drooling at Lana, pathetic and on my right was Liam who like Adelaine had a serious look on his face stiff necks. Madison and Niall smiled at each other yuck while Louis and Samara both stared at their phones addicts.
"Why are here?" asked evil bitch with a bland tone, seriously what was wrong with this girl?
"Well we are here to discuss your upcoming tour." said Peter. Okay now we were all curious what did their tour have to do with us? "Well your joint tour." said Will and the room went silent.
“WHAT?” Came the reply from both groups in unison. The two managers looked startled.
“Did you just say joint tour?” Asked Liam for clarification, when they nodded..
"No no fucking way." said Madison which caused all of us too look at her because she was always the shy one.
"Yes way" insisted Peter firmly. While will glared at us. We both decided to settle down. "As we were saying, we want you guys to go on upcoming joint tour because your sales have been slipping.” he said looking at us "You need the exposure." he said looking at the girls.
”Isn’t there another way to boost our sales?” Asked Harry.
"Yeah we are not anybody’s charity case." said Lana glaring at Harry who looked offended.
”Well no, besides the fans love you guys together. They are even shipping you guys.” Peter said.
"What?” Was the answer again.
"You know what shipping is?” Samara asked Peter who shrugged.
"Okay, look at it this way, you’re doing this for your fans that got you where you are and for the sake of your careers.” he said, at that we all kept quiet. "Good, now we’ll have a press conference to announce the tour in three weeks time. In the mean time you guys should get to know each other and learn how to tolerate each other." he said. "Who knows you may actually end up being friends." concluded Will.
Yeah fucking right. That will happen when hell freezes over.

OMG that was like two weeks ago, thank you so so much beautiful Yasmine, love you too much to describe! Too sad to see you go too, but it’s probably for the best.
I do write stuff, crazy stuff you wouldn’t want to read. Thank you so much, this made me smile and I needed it.
Thank you so much, I have never come here ever since I said goodbye just once when I wished a friend a HBD but yeah thank you it’s a late answer but it means so much to me knowing people caring this much for me and my writings.
Well that update you saw in August is probably the last update you’ll ever from me at least on 2013. So I see no point on sending you a link?
Probably next summer xD
And you’re the sweetest follower I’ve ever had, & I love you just as much.
Cutie cutie thank you so much! Don’t cry it’s too late to answer to this I know but I hope you’re doing great.
Oh you’re so cute :( It wasn’t the end of the world when I was gone wasn’t it? ;)
Yasmine: Hi everyone. I know that Sam quitted, I am so sad to hear that, her blog was amazing. Anyway, here’s chapter 3.
Chapter 3: A Drop In The Ocean
I narrowed my eyebrows as his name rang into my ears , “And who’s Zayn Malik?” as I asked her I glanced sideways at the beautiful boy, who was still talking to that girl, his mouth was moving very quickly, his perfect lips barely opening.
“Zayn Malik from one direction? The ones your little sister keeps bugging you about? Do you even live on this planet Destiny?” she chuckled at me.
”Probably not.” I shook my head “But what would he do here anyway?”
She shrugged “I don’t know, probably to see a friend? Who knows?” She said.
“And who’s the girl he’s been talking to, I couldn’t see her face clearly.” I said my head nodding at his side, as we looked at their direction we found an army of girls around them asking for autographs.
“Never mind I guess.” I sighed “He is… very nice-looking though.” I struggled with the conspicuous understatement.
“Yeah yeah, don’t even think about it Anderson, last time I checked you were still having a boyfriend.” she stated.
“And who told you I have any interest in this Zayn? He just seemed so…” I stopped searching for words.
“Hot?” she let out a devilish dirty smirk.
“He seems so familiar, that’s what I wanted to say.” I corrected her “Tough I couldn’t see him clearly I feel like I’ve seen him before.”
She shook her head, “Neah, I don’t think so. There’s no way in hell you did, I read somewhere he used to live in Bradford yeah, but he was probably home schooled.” She explained “I’ve never met a boy this hot around, you know the boys here and how they look like, your boyfriend is probably the only exception.”
I shook my head, “You’re crazy you know that right?” I said giggling.
She put her index in her chin pretending as if she was thinking “I’ve been told that a lot.” She laughed at her own words and I laughed along “Well, the show is over, let us go.” She clapped her hands.
I allowed Suzi to propel me down the corridor, up a flight of stairs, and into a classroom. I slid into an empty seat automatically and fixed my eyes on the teacher at the front without really seeing her. The events of earlier still hadn’t worn off. He’d walked right by. Without a glance. I couldn’t remember how long it had been since a boy had done that. They all looked, at least. Some whistled. Some stopped to talk. Some just stared. And that had always been fine with me at the end I am with someone right?
Ms. Halpern was passing out trigonometry books. I took mine mechanically and wrote my name inside, still wrapped in thought. Until now, remembering that moment in the hall, I found my fingers for some reason clenching on the pen I held. I still couldn’t believe he’d brushed by me that way. But as Suzi said, he’s the Zayn Malik, I would be to him just another girl. A drop in the ocean.
The bell rang and everyone flooded out of the classroom, but I paused in the doorway. I bit my lip, scanning the river of students flowing through the hall but he was nowhere to be found, I guess he left.
I drove myself all the way back to Bradford just like Louis told me and the other boys. We had some stuff to do here according to him. In my way here I started feeling antsy as soon as I drove past the “Welcome to Bradford” sign. This was one shit hole I had never wanted to set foot in again, if it wasn’t for my family and work I would never come back here, ever.
The city obviously hadn’t changed a bit, still the same old roads, the same old boring town hall square. I could spot the Bradford Grill in the distance, a place where me and the boys would hang out sometimes. Even that one hadn’t changed.
I really didn’t want to be here. This place reminded me of the pathetic loser I once was. It reminded me of the things I went through when I was picked upon. Oh well, time to take the experience and turn it into something good.
The corners of my mouth lifted into a lazy smile as I passed the ‘Bradford College’ sign.
My mind started wondering to Destiny Anderson. I wondered what she would look right now, if she still lives in Bradford. She had been so beautiful in high school. I could still picture the chocolate colored hair, her mile long legs, her big brown eyes. Would she still be a knock out?
Six years was a long time. It had done wonders for me. I’m different person now, I convinced myself. There was NO way I would let Destiny Anderson screw me up all over again. But then why did I feel just a tad nervous as I parked in front of Bradford College? Maybe she doesn’t study here? Maybe she’s in other town, but just the possibility of her being here or I can see her made my mind go in over drive.
I clutched the steering wheel tight in my hands, taking a few breaths to calm myself. I parked in front of the first building, which had a small sign over the door reading front office. Time to face the music, I thought.
I grabbed my leather jacket off my passenger seat, embarrassingly noticing my hands shaking just a tiny bit.
I stepped out of the car and walked over towards the college with sure steps, feeling the girls’ eyes on me, a topic of gossip no doubt. I felt myself become the famous guy again. The feel of my leather jacket, the sunglasses and 250 pound shoes always changed me.
With a strong fist, I knocked on the admission’s secretary door and walked in. Of course if you’re searching for a student this is the perfect place to go right?
Inside, it was brightly lit. The office was small, a little waiting area with padded folding chairs, orange-flecked commercial carpet, notices and awards cluttering the walls, a big clock ticking loudly. Plants grew everywhere in large plastic pots, as if there wasn’t enough greenery outside. The room was cut in half by a long counter, cluttered with wire baskets full of papers and brightly colored flyers taped to its front. There were three desks behind the counter, one of which was manned by a large, red-haired woman sitting in a chair behind a desk. She was wearing a purple t-shirt, which immediately made me feel overdressed.
The red-haired woman looked up. “Can I help you?”
I massaged the back of my neck nervously “I’m Zayn Malik.” I informed her, and saw the immediate awareness light her eyes. I didn’t expect that, a woman in her thirty’s I didn’t expect her to recognize me.
"Of course." she said happily. “Take a seat please.” She pointed to the empty chair behind her desk.
“No thanks. I won’t be here for long.” I said “I know this is the place to find someone, a student to be more specific.”
“Yeah, just give me the name and I’ll tell you in which class she or he’s right now.” She answered politely.
“Uhm, the student’s name is, Eleanor Calder.” I said.
She nodded and dug through a precariously stacked pile of documents on her desk till she found the ones she was looking for. “Eleanor Calder, well let’s see.” Her index scanned some list until it came to a sudden stop. “Eleanor Calder has no classes today sir, you may want to come back tomorrow.”
“That’s impossible.” I took off my glasses, “She told me to meet up with her here, instead of going through the entire college buildings I just came to you, please madam just look again.”
“Ok, I’ll have a look at this again.” This time she wore her reading glasses and looked through them from the top of her nose. “Ah! You’re right, she has General Business floor 3.”
“Thank you so much madam.” I smiled as convincingly as I could at the woman.
“No problem.” She smiled back “Anything else I can help with?”
“No thanks, you helped me enough.” I smiled at her, I wanted so badly to ask her about Destiny if she was a student here but the words were heavily stuck behind my tongue that it was hard to spell them.
When I stepped out the office I walked down the hallway putting back quickly my sun glasses, I didn’t glance once to my sides, but I noticed some girls brief glances, they would look away when my eyes met theirs at some point. I stopped in my track as I noticed the tall brunette figure I’ve been looking for.
With quick steps she made her way towards me her arms extended welcoming me in a hug, she pecked my cheek and I hugged her tightly not bothering who would notice us, she was my friend, my best female friend actually and also my best friend’s girlfriend Louis Tomlinson. We pulled back but I kept one arm sung around her neck.
“It’s been a long time Zayn!” said Eleanor.
“I know right?” I answered chuckling “You’ve pretty cute girls here.” She slapped my shoulder rolling her eyes.
“Shut up quiffy, those girls are off limits, I know most of them, don’t even think about it.” she warned me.
“I know, I know, I didn’t even glance at one of them I was just joking.” I assured her “How are you though?”
“I am doing amazing, where is Louis? He hasn’t arrived yet?” she pouted and I rolled my eyes.
“You know him, he’s probably asleep somewhere, I only came here because you kept bugging the five of us about it, tell me now what’s on that little devilish head.”
She smirked “Nothing devilish I promise.” said Eleanor. “As if to come to why I brought you here, you’ll have to wait and see.” She retorted, her words as evil as Cruella Devil.
Before I could open my mouth to protest I found bunch of girls running in our direction, encircling the two of us within seconds.
A.N: Well you have to wait & see guys :) Chapter 3 aha aha! I hope you liked it, still going slow but I hope you hit the little heart button? Lot of love lovelies <3 xoxo-Sam
Hey guys! I don’t know if Yasmine has told you this before but I won’t be here anymore, I’ll quit tumblr for good. I am so sorry I started a fanfic & then left it there hanging, but as I started writing I just realized how hard it is to write. Chapter 3 will be posted tomorrow I left it in Yasmine’s inbox, but I don’t know if there’ll ever be a chapter 4. She may continue writing it herself or she may just leave this blog like that. I am so sorry, life is gonna take me away from you guys :( I was really excited to write again, but now I can’t, I need to focus on my studies & I don’t have to mention how hard it is to live by your own away from your family, no mommy making me my food :(, & writing a fanfic now would be the last thing of my priorities, hope if I come back one day to glance here I’ll find zerrie shit is over. Lovelies, so sorry again, & love y’all, you’ve been amazing to me, I really wanted to stay here until I see 1k followers but huh what to do & again Tumblr has been such a beautiful outlet <3
