Chap 8: Zayn and Bella
Part 1: An unforgettable night.
Bella’s POV: 11p.m
It was such a boys’ argument! After Zayn apologized to Niall, they just hugged each other tightly and giggled. Niall was rarely mad at anyone for a long time. He was very altruistic. Niall was such a good boy that nobody could help loving him. I counted myself lucky to have a boyfriend like him. Then he was sleeping on his beloved kama while I was just standing at the balcony and looking at his baby face. Suddenly, someone opened the door. Oh, it was Zayn. He saw me and waved at me.
“Vas happening? Niall is sleeping.” I whispered.
“I know. I wanna talk with you, Bella.” He sinabi under his breath.
I tiptoed out of the room and closed the door quietly. Zayn grabbed my hand and I followed him to his room. Oh my fucking god, when he touched my hand, I felt something very familiar. At that moment, my puso beated faster like being hurt sa pamamagitan ng something. I didn’t know why but when he held my hand, I wanted to cry. Luckily, finally he let my hand free when we came into his room.
“Shhh. Wait me a minute!” Zayn sinabi before he left me alone in his room.
While he was not in the room, I looked around and went to the balcony to take some fresh breath. Zayn’s room was black and white. I was very surprised when I saw his room because it was totally spotless. When I met him for the first time, I thought that he was dirty and messy. While I was standing alone beside the window, I felt as if some mga hayop were licking my hand. I almost screamed out loud when I saw a black dog and two kittens. They all looked so cute. I immediately sat down and stroked their feather. The white kitten came to sit on my stomach. It was like a big ball of wool.
“Meow…meow…you look so cute.” I smiled.
I loved mga hayop so much. When I was small, my ex-boyfriend and I usually brought astray Pusa and Aso home. But our mothers always thew them away and then I cried a lot. Since my ex-boyfriend left away, I had never had a pet again. Seeing these pets made me remember all my lovely memories. If I hadn’t met Niall and fallen in pag-ibig with him, I would still be finding my ex. In fact, Niall really saved my life from those dark days.
“They seem to like you a lot.” Suddenly I heard Zayn’s voice.
I looked up and saw Zayn with two cups of coffee.
“Your pets are so cute.” I said.
Zayn smiled and asked me:
“Cappucino or latte?”
“Cappucino.” I answered, receiving a cup from his hand.
“Do you feel sleepy, Bella?” Zayn said.
“Nope.” I shook my head.
“So…follow me. I wanna ipakita you one thing.” He winked.

Then I was sitting right beside Zayn on the roof of the house and drinking coffee. We were both looking at the sky. On that night, the sky was full of twinking-twinking stars.
“Do you believe that when we are dead, we will become a bituin on the sky?” Zayn said.
I stroked the cat’s feather, asking him:
“Why do you think so, Zayn?”
“When I was younger, my grandfather used to tell me that if we live well all our lives, we will be a bituin in our hereafters.”
“Your grandpa must have been a very good guy.” I told him.
“How do you know?”
I looked into his deep brown eyes:
“Cuz he bought up such a good boy as you.”
“I’m not that good. I’m just a suck dick. I even really don’t know what I will be after I’m dead if I live like that. Bella, do you think that I can be a star?”
“Now you are a star, Zayn.”
He giggled and suddenly shut up. After a short silence, he sinabi quietly:
“Bella, I’m sorry.”
“For what?” I asked.
“For having been too crude to you on the night you first came here.”
“Zayn, I even don’t remember that. And it was because of me. I annoyed you.” I blushed.
“Thank you, Bella.” He told me.
“I know you didn’t mean to hurt me and you are welcome.” I winked “Aw, Zayn, you sinabi you want to ipakita me something. What’s that?”
He sinabi happily:
“Oh, yeah, yeah. What time is it, Bella?”
I took out my Iphone to see the time:
“It’s ten to one.”
“Okey, you have to wait about 10 minutos to see it. That’s my gift for you. Consider it as a gift of apology.”
“I can’t wait, Zayn. I’m too eager.” I laughed.
When I was teasing Zayn, he suddenly looked up to the sky and screamed out loud:
“That’s it! A rain of shooting stars. Wish fast, Bella!”
I immediately looked at the sky and saw an awesome view that I would never forget. Each marvellous meteor flew over the dark night like the blooming firework.
“Let’s wish, Bella!” He urged me.
I closed my eyes and wished:
“I wish all the people that I pag-ibig would be always sa pamamagitan ng my side and happy forever. Forever…..”
