What I Did For Love...Part 138
“What?” Zayn questioned me, “Why would you want to do that?”
I shrugged my shoulders, “I want to see how he’s doing…”
“I don’t think you’re in the right state to do that,” Zayn pointed out, “You’re just getting better.”
“Doesn’t matter,” I retorted, “I’m going to see him. You guys can come, but I want to be alone when I talk to him.”
“I’m not letting you go,” Zayn said, “You remember the last time you went to see him? You thought he was your friend, but look what happened.”
“He’s at an asylum Zayn,” I told him, “There are doctors and security there. They will protect me. I promise.”
“I don’t want to lose you again,” Zayn whispered
“I swear you won’t,” I assured, “Now, once I get out of here we’re going straight to the asylum, okay?”
“Fine,” Zayn gave up, “You win.”
I smirked, “Good.”
Zayn changed the subject, “(y/n), I’ve got a question.”
“What is it?” I cocked an eyebrow
“Where are we in our relationship?” He asked me
There was silence. Where were we in our relationship? Am I ready to go back to him? Is it safe to go back to Zayn? I loved him, that’s for sure.
“Excuse me sir,” The doctor came in the room, “Like I’ve said before, visiting hours were over.”
I gave Zayn a smile signifying that we’d talk about it later. Zayn took the signal and returned the same small smile. He walked out of the room with a disappointment in my eyes. I knew I needed to see Aurelian just for closure. It’ll assure me that everything will be fine and I wouldn’t have to be weary about my decisions.
“You okay, mate?” Liam asked Zayn, while patting his back
“You seem down Zaynie,” Eleanor mocked
Zayn gave Eleanor a tiny glare and responded to Liam, “Just a bit peeved.”
“Want to talk about it?” Louis questioned
“Nah,” Zayn assured, “It’s nothing. I’m going to head home.”
“Don’t want to go to Starbucks?” Niall cocked an eyebrow
Eleanor pouted, “I was going to say that.”
Danielle laughed, “Well it’s too late for you to say it now. Come on, Zayn’s probably tired.”
“Need a ride?” Harry asked changing the subject
“I’m good,” Zayn assured him, “I need some air, so I’m going to walk home.”
Zayn didn’t wait for them to say a word, so he walked out of their view. The night air was cold, but it was refreshing for Zayn. He was so confused about (y/n). Everything was going right now. Aurelian was gone; people are in search for Avery, why can’t she just agree to be his girlfriend once again? A few minutes later, Zayn arrived at his apartment. He let out an exasperated sigh as he shut the door.
“Damien!” He called, “Where are you?”
There was the sound of keys hitting against each other. Zayn furrowed his eyebrows and looked around the room.
“Damien?” He called once more, “Did you get the spare keys?”
“Zayn…,” Zayn heard a whisper
He turned around and his eyes widened. Avery was standing behind him. Her hair and clothes were disheveled. She had a crazed look in her eyes. The moonlight was shown upon her facing. What scared Zayn the most was what was in her left hand.
“Avery,” He said wearily, “Drop the gun.”
“I didn’t mean to shoot you,” Avery whispered, “I swear.”
“I believe you,” Zayn replied, “Just put the gun down.”
“Is she dead?” Avery questioned, “Are you mine now?”
“Avery….,” He said softly
She inched towards him, “I got rid of them, those men. I shot them all. Damien’s in your bedroom sleeping. Do you love me now?”
When Avery touched Zayn’s shoulder, Zayn pulled back and retorted, “You’re a murderer.”
“No I’m not,” She denied, “I’m doing everything just to be with you!”
“I don’t want to be with you!” Zayn hissed
“You don’t mean that,” Avery replied, “You love me.”
“I love (y/n),” Zayn retorted
There was a fire lit in her eyes, “She’s dead.”
“No she isn’t,” Zayn assured her, “Leave now.”
“Please don’t act this way,” Avery pleaded, “I know you’re upset because I shot you by accident. Please, I didn’t mean it.”
“I’m not angry because you shot me!” Zayn screamed, “I’m angry because you tried killing (y/n)! You’ve been hurting my friends! Get out of my life!”
“Will you love me then?” Avery whispered, “If I’m out of your life?”
“I will never love you,” Zayn hissed
He walked to his front door to leave her there. Avery raised the gun and pulled the trigger. There was now a body laying limply on the ground.

What I Did For Love...Part 139
“Fuck!” Zayn winced at the sound
He slowly turned around to view the scene behind him. As he turned, there was a creak on the wooden floor of his apartment. Avery was lying on the ground with her hand twitching. Zayn crept towards her, feeling the tension in the situation. He knelt down and brushed her hair away from her face to see if she was alive. A whimper escaped from her lips.
“Avery?” Zayn whispered
“Do you love me yet?” She questioned, “I’ve done everything.”
Her eyes fluttered and a small breath escaped her lips. Her eyes were half closed, but her pupils could not be seen. Blood pooled around her body and Zayn’s hand and jeans. There was a ghostly chill in the atmosphere, which sent shivers down his back. He took in a deep breath and stood up. After taking one last look at Avery, he reached for his phone and immediately called the police.
“Excuse me sir,” I called the doctor, “Is it okay for me to leave at this time? I know you said tomorrow, but I’m eager to go home.”
The doctor gave me a small smile, “Do you need us to call someone to bring you back home?”
“I’m perfectly fine,” I assured, “So, am I free to go?”
“Of course,” The doctor said, “A few things must be done though.”
“Okay,” I replied
After doing the things that were required to leave, I walked out of the hospital a bit wobbly. I felt perfectly fine, but I obviously needed rest. However, I needed to see Aurelian without the others. Sounds like a stupid idea, but it’d be better if I went solo. They would have been over protective and desired to be with me, while I talked to him. I went into a cab and proceeded to tell the driver the address of the asylum Aurelian is supposedly at. Hopefully, the asylum is allowing visitors at this time of day. There was silence in the cab. Several thoughts were running through my mind. Would he be easy to talk to, or would he just sit there and do nothing? I haven’t even planned on what I was going to discuss with him. Moments later, I arrived at the asylum. The wind in the night air ran through my spine and I shivered. Slowly, but surely, I walked into the asylum by myself.
“Hello,” I greeted, “Is it okay to see one of the patients?”
“We only have ten minutes left, so make it quick,” The lady snapped at me, “What’s the patient’s name?”
“Aurelian,” I responded
“Right this way,” She said
The girl was walking fast, so I had to speed walk to catch up. She led me into a room with rows of tables. I sat on one of the chairs. There were security guards on each corner and door. I felt uncomfortable and uneasy. Maybe I should have brought Eleanor, Dani, or Jordan, I thought to myself. My leg shook involuntarily, while I waited for Aurelian. The door opened and Aurelian was being led to the table by one of the nurses. He had bags under his eyes and his hair was disheveled. He wore white clothing, typical patient clothing. There was no brightness in his eyes. Dullness replaced the light in his eyes. Aurelian walked slowly to the table, while looking at the ground. It looked like he was mesmerized by something, but I just couldn’t tell what. It broke my heart to see him this way. He might have done horrible things, but I still see the boy I’ve been friends with from the beginning. I might not be able to forgive him right away, but I do pity him. Aurelian sat down across from me and brought his attention on me.
I gave him a small smile, “Hi.” He nodded his head slowly in return. I awkwardly kept on talking, “I hope you’re doing fine. Avery and the others are still missing you know… I just got out of the hospital. You know, I really hope you get better and back to normal. I miss hanging out with the old you. If only we were back in the old days, yeah? Maybe when you’re out of here we can go back to the normal days.”
“Mine,” Aurelian mumbled
“Mine?” I repeated obviously confused
“Mine!” Aurelian barked and reached towards me
As a reaction, I jerked backwards. He stood up and pounded his fists against the table. The security guards and nurse came over to hold him back. I stood up, and the security guard told me to leave. I gave one last glance at Aurelian and noticed the crazed look on his face once again. Tears welled in my eyes. He can never be the same. I left the asylum and got into a cab. My emotions overwhelmed me, so I had no idea what I was doing. There was only one place that I could think of. I arrived at the one place where I could escape the world. Slowly, I went up the steps and opened the door. The air was much colder. I sat on the cold rooftop, with my legs dangling at the edge. A tear escaped my eye, and I took a deep breath and exhaled. As I exhaled, I felt a pair of familiar hands on my shoulders. Zayn smiled at me and sat next to me wrapping his arm around me and pulled me close.
“Did you sneak out of the hospital?” Zayn questioned
“Nope, the doctor let me out early because I begged,” I admitted
“Why didn’t you call any of us?” He asked
“I went to see Aurelian by myself,” I confessed bashfully
“What?!” Zayn exclaimed looking at me disapprovingly, “He could have hurt you!”
“He didn’t,” I assured him, “I’m fine, see? I already went, so now I don’t have to go.”
“Are you sure?” Zayn said
“Yeah I’m sure,” I nodded my head
“The police are over at my place,” Zayn told me, “Avery was in my apartment. She shot herself. I just finished talking to the police and explaining what happened.”
“She’s dead?” I asked surprised, “What?”
Zayn nodded his head, “It seems surreal though.”
“So you came on the rooftop to escape?” I cocked an eyebrow
A small smile formed on his lips, “Yeah. The same reason as to why you’re here, but we all know that we’re always going to end up talking about our relationship. Now, where are we in our relationship? We’re free from our problems now, and I’m confident that nothing is going to be in our way.”
“Is that a promise?” I questioned looking up to him
“Promise to keep you safe and happy?” Zayn said, “Of course. Now where are we?”
“I’m thinking you need to take me on a date,” I laughed
“Where do you want to go?” He asked
“Oh I don’t know, think of somewhere special,” I replied
Zayn chuckled, “I think I have the perfect place, if you promise me something.”
“What might that be?” I questioned
Zayn reached in his pocket and took out the necklace, “Never taking this off and never doing anything stupid again.”
“I can’t help it if I do things for love,” I retorted pulling back from the warm embrace, so he could put the necklace on
“Yeah, sure,” Zayn smiled, “Should we bother the guys by staying over their place tonight?”
“I was thinking about sleeping at my apartment and have them worry where we might be,” I confessed
He smirked, “Great idea.”
Three months later…
“Niall,” Eleanor whined, “When can we meet her?”
“Meet who?” Niall questioned playing dumb
Eleanor furrowed her eyebrows and pouted, “You know who.”
“It’s one of the reasons why you kept disappearing months ago!” Jordan exclaimed, “Now let us meet the girl!”
“Give me a couple weeks,” Niall told them
“Promise us that she isn’t like Avery,” Louis begged
“Hey!” Liam scolded, “She is dead. Give some respect.”
“Like she ever respected us,” Harry spat out
“Oh be nice Haz,” Danielle told him, “It’s all in the past
“You guys are really loud, you know that?” I told them walking into the living room with Damien trailing behind. Zayn has moved in with me, since he didn’t want to live in a place where someone died.
“We thought you’d be used to it by now,” Harry laughed
“Nope,” I assured him, “You guys never cease to amaze me.”
“Where’s Zayn?” Liam questioned
“Sleeping,” I answered, “He can sleep through anything.”
“That’s why it’s our job to wake him up,” Niall piped up
Eleanor ran in the kitchen and went through the cabinets to retrieve some pots and pans. She handed them to the boys, Jordan, and Danielle.
“He’s going to kill you all,” I laughed
“Yeah, but as long as we say it was your idea it’ll be okay,” Louis smirked
“Like he’s going to believe you,” I retorted
“We’ll see,” Louis replied
“Let’s go!” Jordan screamed and opened the bedroom door harshly
I sat on the couch and covered my ears. A couple minutes later, they came out of the room laughing with a very annoyed Zayn coming out of the room. He sat next to me and buried his head against the pillow.
“I’m just going to say that wasn’t even my plan,” I told him
He mumbled something incoherent. Louis said, “Speak louder!”
Zayn lifted his head up and muttered, “We really need a lock for this apartment.”
“We’ll get in the apartment no matter what,” Eleanor said mischievously
“Now get dressed!” I told Zayn, “We’re visiting the asylum.”
“Why?” Harry questioned
“It’s almost Aurey’s birthday,” I said, “Plus, we’re going on vacation in a week, so I won’t be able to visit him on his birthday.”
“Does he even know who you are?” Jordan asked, “Isn’t he like drugged or something.”
I shrugged my shoulders, “I actually only visited once. That’s why I need to visit him today. Are you guys going to come along?”
“Why not,” Danielle said, “We can head to Starbucks after.”
“I’m in!” Eleanor exclaimed
“Get dressed Zayn!” I pushed Zayn
“Yeah, give me a minute,” He mumbled closing his eyes
Niall took his pan and made a huge bang against Zayn’s ear. Zayn glowered at Niall and stood up, walking to the bedroom to get changed. Fifteen minutes later, Zayn came out of the room fully dressed and hair groomed. We all made our way down stairs and into the parking lot. We went into separate cars and straight to the asylum. I went to the front desk with the others behind me.
“Could I please see Aurelian?” I asked a young girl
She looked through the list and furrowed her eyebrows. Then she gave me a small smile, “I’m sorry but he isn’t here anymore. He was transferred to a different asylum.”
“Do you know where?” I questioned
“I’m sorry, but no we don’t,” She said truthfully, “All we know is that he is out of the country.”
“Do you know why he was transferred?” Liam questioned
“That’s confidential,” We heard a voice. It was the angry lady I talked to the last time I went there.
We all looked at each other with confused expressions on our face. Where was he?

What I Did For Love...Part 137
There were gasps from each and everyone in the room.
“Was I gone for a long time?” I questioned
There was no answers coming from them. Instead, they engulfed me with hugs. I looked at everyone and studied their facial expressions. They looked joyful, but I was a bit confused.
“Are you guys okay?” I asked
“I’ll go get the doctor,” Liam said
Everyone pulled back and gave me a smile. Zayn explained, “You were out for a few days. I’m so glad that you got better.”
“What happened?” I questioned
“Your cut got infected,” Dani explained, “The doctors inserted antibiotics into your body. No one knew if you were going to survive or not. Well we still don’t even know if the antibiotics have taken affect in your body.”
“But you’re going to be okay,” Zayn added, “I know it.”
“Excuse me,” The doctor came into the room with Liam trailing behind him, “I need you all to leave. We will be doing some tests.”
The doctor took some of my blood and tested it. He told me that I was going to be okay, and that I should take some medication. Before the doctor left, he told me that I needed to see a therapist about my traumatizing experience. Then he said that I would be able to leave the hospital the next day. Once he left, the others came in. We caught up, and I learned about what happened to Jeremiah and his mother.
“Does this mean Jordan is his guardian now?” I asked
“Possibly,” Jordan answered
“Any other questions for us?” Niall questioned
“Is there any news about Avery and Aurelian?” I whispered
“Aurelian has psychosis and he’s at the asylum,” Louis told me, “We have no news about Avery.”
“There’s police searching for her though,” Eleanor added
“And the three other men,” Harry said
We all continued talking until an hour has passed. The doctor came in and told them that visiting hours were done. We bid our farewells, but Zayn stayed in the room.
“How are you feeling?” He asked
“Good,” I answered
“You look like you have something on your mind,” Zayn told me, “Care to share?”
“I think I might want to give Aurelian a little visit,” I confessed
