    In the end, their love story is the simplest one there is. Despite how messy and complicated the plot may be, drama and heartbreak hidden around every corner, their story is simple. It was when it began, and it remains so.

    Their story, quite simply, goes like this: five boys meet.

    They fall in love.

     

    or,

     

    The world ends, and suddenly Harry, Niall, Zayn, Liam, and Louis are alone in a haunted house in the middle of nowhere.

    Summary

    It goes and it's golden, like sands of time
    I hope and I hope you'll still be fine
    I know that it's bright, look through the light and see
    It's meant to be

    Every single jigsaw piece seems to be incomplete

    The choices we make change the path that we take, but I know
    That somewhere out there there's a path that we chose
    There's a life that we share, there's a love and it grows

    Golden, Zayn (released 2016)

     

    Golden, golden, golden as I open my eyes
    Hold it, focus, hoping, take me back to the light
    I know you were way too bright for me
    I'm hopeless, broken, so you wait for me in the sky
    Brown my skin just right
    You're so golden

    I'm out of my head, and I know that you're scared
    Because hearts get broken

    I know that you're scared because I'm so open

    Golden, Harry Styles (released 2019)

    Summary

    "It was Zayn," Harry tells him a couple minutes later, and his hands are shaky but his voice is shakier. He is not drunk, rather dangling on the edge of it. Joe couldn't decide whether he is an emotional drunk or an honest drunk. Both, perhaps. 

    Joe shifts, "Do you really want to tell this to a stranger —"

    But Harry cuts him off, "Please. No one ever listens. Please?"

    And so he listens.

    Summary

    Interviewer:
    “What do you think is the cosmological effect of Zayn Malik leaving One Direction and consequently breaking the hearts of million of teenage girls across the world?”

    Stephen Hawking:
    “Finally, a question about something important.”

    Liam looked up from the video playing on his phone, not even listening to the rest of Hawking’s answer. He felt like he was having an out of body experience. He looked down at his other hand and carefully counted on his fingers: himself, Harry, Louis and Niall. That was it. Those were the only members of One Direction, and that hadn’t changed since the band’s inception on X Factor.

    Who the fuck was Zayn?

    (Or, where Liam searches across time and space for the answer to the question: Who the fuck is Zayn?)

    Summary

    "It's not about hate", Louis said, trying desperately to keep his voice straight. Zayn turned around again, almost crying. "You let me down, Zayn. The boys. The fans. Perrie. You let everybody down. Fuck, I hope at least you got everything you wanted. You have a lot of money now and a beautiful girlfriend, hits that are on your own, plus you don't need to share your spotlight with anybody else anymore. You are a star, Zayn, shining alone. I hope it was worth it."

    Zayn's voice was so low that Louis almost couldn't hear it.

    "It wasn't."

    - where Zayn and Louis finally talk about everything that happened between the two of them.

    Summary

    Four years.

    It’s been four years since Zayn left the band.

    Zayn left because of the tremendous amount of stress he was experiencing. The boys knew he was leaving, and their last show was emotional.

    What was more emotional, was leaving Liam behind. Zayn and Liam had been really close. The pain of leaving Liam was still heavy in his heart. He always loved Liam, and he knew he would never see him again.

    But that would all change on a Tuesday in July.

    Summary

    From the moment Harry Edward Styles laid his eyes on me he knew we were meant to be. We were just little kids when he showed me what friendship really means and we grew up together as best friends.

    As brother and sister.

    But as his career in music proceeded, our hearts got all confused, creating a mix of confusion, attraction and, at last, love in its purest form.

    What will happen when we started feeling things that weren't there before - or we were just too distracted to even notice it - but our divergent paths kept us away from each other?

    Summary

    "I-I have to do this," Zayn stuttered as he looked at the four boys sat in front of him, varying expressions on their faces.

    "No you don't, we can help you," Harry said quietly, the desperation evident in his voice as he stared at Zayn with unshed tears in his eyes.

    "You could try, but the only thing that will fix this is l-leaving."

    Summary

    Zayn can't handle this. He can't handle the hate, the pain, the anger and the fear. He can't handle the beards and the babygates, the fights and the arguments. The rest of the boys have already reluctantly renewed their contracts, but you can't sign a shredded paper.
