Chapter 62 - Back In The Game
I sat down on the couch, confused. Niall soon followed me, sitting next to me, chewing on his bottom lip. I had no idea what he was going to tell me. It was the second time one of my best friends had to tell me something, and none of them brought good news with them. And I had a feeling Niall wasn’t going to be different.
"Well?" I hurried him. "What on earth do you have to tell me so important?"
"I’m going to tell you everything." he answered, looking at me. "I’ll start with the beginning."
"Go ahead then." I said, my hands crossed together.
"Alright, so, for me, the fact that Isabelle got fired so sudden, and right after we found out she lied us, made me suspicious." he started saying. "So, two days after we met Isabelle again, I went to the store she worked at. I found Alice there, and luckily, her boss was on his way to the store. I waited for him, and when I’ve finally met him, I told him why was I there."
He stopped for a moment, and looked at me, like he waited for my permission to continue. I nodded, as a sign I wanted him to keep telling me.
"I told him I’m a good friend with Isabelle, and asked him why he fired her." Niall continued. "At first, he hesitated, but I convinced him to tell me the reason. He said that one girl came to him one day, and told him she’ll make her father close his store, if he won’t fire Isabelle."
I furrowed my eyebrows in confusion. Who on earth would’ve wanted Isabelle to lost her job?
"He told me that the girl had long, straight blonde hair." Niall continued, watching my reactions carefully. "With light green eyes, fake eyelashes, her eyes constantly showing madness. Now, tell me Zayn, do you recognize this girl?"
My eyes went wide immediately, the girl’s image running through my mind with a high full speed.
"Michelle." I said, sure of myself.
"Mhm." Niall nodded. "As you may know, her father is some important business man from this country. Like she said, her father could’ve closed that store in a blink of an eye."
My hands turned in fists in one second, my breath turning heavy.
"Also, the fact that the owner of her flat didn’t want to give her a second chance, was suspicious for me too." Niall continued. "Isabelle was living in that flat since a long time, and from what she said to us, she was never late with the rent. Now, why didn’t the owner give her a second chance? He knew Isabelle, he knew she was going to pay the rent sooner or later. So, again, I did some research. Guss who owns the building Isabelle was living in?"
I didn’t even hesitate to answer him, I understood everything in a second. “Michelle’s father.”
"Yope." he agreed. "I managed to get the owner’s phone number, and I talked with him on the phone. He told me that a girl came to him, and told him that Isabelle will call him soon, so she warned him not to give her a second chance, or her father will make sure he’ll loose everything. He told me the same description: blonde girl, with light green eyes."
I was staring at him, literally shocked. I couldn’t believe that Michelle was capable of doing that.
"There is more." Niall said. "It seemed to weird for me that none of the jobs Isabelle looked for, she couldn’t get them. I asked her to tell me where she searched for them, and I went to every single person she told me about. They all told me that after Isabelle came, another blonde girl with green eyes came to them, and told them how her father will ruin them if they will hire Isabelle. And, the building Isabelle lives in at the moment, is owned by Michelle’s father too. She knew all the time mate. Michelle knew where Isabelle was."
I bit my lip, trying to contain my anger in. I was mad, Michelle ruined literally everything.
"Fuck!" I said, more for myself.
I rubbed my face with my both hands, groaning in the process. I’ve never thought Michelle was capable of that.
"How on earth did you find out all of this?" I asked him, still shocked.
Niall shrugged a little as a response. “Told you, it was too weird. Everything happened so sudden. Who on earth wouldn’t want to hire Isabelle? We both knew how hard she works, and how good she’ll be at everything. I knew something was wrong, so I did some research. I have no idea how, but I guess Michelle followed Isabelle everywhere…”
I looked away from him, groaning. Yes, Niall was right. Everything happened so sudden. Isabelle lost everything in one day, and her life turned to be a mess. Why didn’t I think about it earlier? Everything made a lot of sense right now.
"I don’t understand something." I said. "Michelle came to me after six months. Why she came so late?"
"I have no idea." Niall admitted. "The girl had a good strategy. She managed to ruin your relationship with Isabelle. Look where you guys are now. The girl is crazy, you should’ve told her to leave when she came to you on the night Is called you."
"I know." I said, resting my head in my hands. "I’m so stupid!"
"You’re not." Niall said. "You were just confused."
I shook my head, not knowing what to say more. I was stupid, and idiot, and what not. I chose to believe Michelle over Isabelle, and I didn’t know how to fix everything.
"That’s not all." Niall said at some point.
I looked at him, not knowing what was he going to tell me more. I knew that it wasn’t very good, the look was on his face let me know that.
"Peter is out of jail." he said, looking straight at me.
My eyes went wide, my body freezing.
"Are you sure?" I asked him. "How the fuck happened?"
He shrugged. “Paul told me this morning. It looks like the police let him go because he was good during this whole time. And I’m pretty sure he’ll come after Isabelle, he’s crazier than Michelle is. Maybe he doesn’t know where she’s living now, but he found her once, he’ll find her again. You should take her away from there.”
"I tried to!" I whined. "But she’s too stubborn to listen to me. I asked her to move in with me, but she didn’t want to. I have no idea what to do, mate. I’ll go crazy if something bad will happen while I’m not next to her."
"You really want her to move in with you?" Niall asked.
I nodded quickly, sure. “Yes. This would be the only way I’d be able to take care of her. Her flat is far from our studio, and I can’t be there every minute. If she and Aiden will live with me, I’ll know no one will hurt them.”
"That’s the only reason you want her to move in with you?" Niall asked me with a cheeky smile.
I chuckled a little, and let my head down, smiling like an idiot.
"You want to take her back, don’t you?" Niall asked me again, a low chuckle leaving his mouth.
I nodded, still smiling. “I do….I just don’t know what to do.”
"Actually, I have an idea which will make her spend some time at your flat." Niall answered smiling. "But, it won’t assure you she’ll agree to move in with you. You’ll have to convince her then."
"You do?" I asked.
"Yeah." he answered. "But I need the others’ help."
"What are you going to do?" I asked.
"You’ll see soon." he answered, getting up from the couch. He went to the door, while I followed him from behind.
"Take Isabelle and Aiden out in town tomorrow, after Isabelle’s work." Niall told me when he was at the door. "Bring them home first, so she will be able to change from her uniform. We’ll be there too."
"Niall, what on earth do you have in mind?" I asked him with a sigh.
"Trust me mate." he answered, patting my back. "My plans always work."
"Alright." I gave up. "I’ll just wait then."
Niall left after this, and I went to change myself in some new clothes. I went to Michelle’s house after, that girl was going to have a piece of my mind.
I hurried, and in less than 30 minutes, I was at her door, knocking on it.
"Zayn!" she said excited when she opened the door, kind of surprised that I was there.
I rolled my eyes at her voice, walking past her. I stopped when I was in her living room, turning around so I was facing her.
"What are you doing here love?" she asked me, a big, fake smile on her face.
"Stop acting." I said serious. "I found out everything Michelle."
"What are you talking about?" she asked me, crossing her arms at her chest.
"What you did." I answered angry. "You talked with Isabelle’s old boss, and arranged to fire her. I know literally everything. How you made her loose her flat, how you didn’t let anyone hire her. Why the fuck did you do it? She did absolutely nothing to you!"
"She’s the only subject you know?" she asked me with a sarcastic tone, rolling her eyes at me. "I didn’t do that, I don’t know where you found out these lies."
"Don’t you even try to deny it!" I warned her, my eyebrows furrowed. "I can’t believe I laid my eyes on you at some point. You’re heartless."
"Oh, just stop!" she yelled at me. "She deserved it. She stole you away from me!"
"I’ve never been yours!" I yelled too, angry taking over me. "I’ve told you this a million times before. You ruined her!"
"Say ‘thank you’ for doing only this." she said. "I could’ve done so much more."
My eyes went wide a little at her words.
"You’re making me sick." I said with disgust.
I didn’t want to talk more with her, I felt like I was going to loose it anytime. So I walked past her, but she grabbed my forearm, making me turn to her.
"You’re so going to regret it if you’ll leave." she said, her eyes burning into mines.
I freed myself from her, and took a step closer, my body inches away from her. “I swear Michelle, if you’ll do something to hurt Isabelle, I’ll be the one who’ll make you regret it. I’m done with being the nice guy. Stay away from her.”
She looked at me surprised, I could tell she didn’t expect that from my part. I took one last glare at her, and left, slamming the door behind me.
I took my car after, slamming that door too. I was angry, mad at the same time. Michelle was driving me crazy. That girl was so….urgh….stupid. I knew she was capable of more.
I turned my car and made my way to Isabelle’s flat. I needed to see her, talk with her. I had to tell her that Peter was out of jail, maybe this way she’ll agree to move in with me.
In some way, I was scared that something bad will happen to her while I’m away. I couldn’t stand the thought of someone touching her. I had to make her change her mind.
On the way there, I was thinking at what Niall had in mind. He was right, his plans always worked. This is how I got Isabelle, so I knew he was going to help me again.
Even if his plan wasn’t going to work, I was determinated to get my baby girl back. I wanted to keep her safe, to make love to her again. And nothing wasn’t going to stop me. I was once again, back in the game.
