Picking Out the Thorns

Cassandra goes through a recent and tragic death of her parents. When a 32 year old man adopts her, Cassandra thinks she can finally move on. But she wasn't correct. On the 5th day of when he adopted her, he locked her up, and made her a slave for him. If Cassandra didnt do what he said, he would brutally hit her, until she bled, or was bruised. Cassandra couldn't take it anymore. With all the hitting, and inappropriate things, she took all the courage she had to stand up to him. He didnt like it, and started hitting her. Cassandra finally ran away, and meet someone she never knew would be so important to her. But there was one flaw. He was a huge celebrity. She would always come 2nd. But things get better. The thorns dont stay on forever.


3. Something New

Ever since last night, when I discovered who Mr. La-dean really is, I've been scared. I was even frighted just by hearing his name. Well, this afternoon, He will be leaving for work. I'm determined to get out. I will of course come back before he see's me. He came to my new room. "Cassandra, doll, I'll be leaving now. But dont worry. When I get back, I have something fun in stored for us." Mr. La-dean said. I shivered by the tone of his voice. When he left, he locked the door. Damn it. How will I get out now? I needed to see the London. I wanted to so badly. Luckily, there was a window. I opened it and quickly climbed out. Oh my god I thought. I was out. I was finally out. To bad I have to go back in 4 hours. I called for a cab, and we drove to the city.

Wow. I haven't been to the city since Mom and dad died. We moved to London when I was 13, so I don't really have the accent. I walked around. Everyone here seemed so happy, and cheery. I liked it here. I looked at the clothing shops, and shoe stores. All these wonderful things to buy. While I was busy day dreaming I bumped into someone. "Whoa, Im so sorry!" I said. I looked up to see who it was. It was a guy with Blonde hair, and blue eyes. He wore a polo, and a pair of Peachish pants. Now why does he look so familiar? "No, its okay. It was my fault. Are you alright?" He said. Oh okay. So he's Irish. He was extremely familiar. "Yeah. Im Fine.." I said. I wanted to start a conversation with him. But something startled me. I saw Mr. La-dean. And he was running towards me. I literally started to cry. The guy looked at me and said, "Whoa, whats wrong?" I cried harder and said. "I have to go. Just let me go, or else something bad can happen to me!" I ran. He ran after me to. I think he was worried. Mr. La-dean caught up to me. We were in an ally where no one was around.


I ran after that girl I bumped into. Their was a guy who caught her. I hid and listened closely to their conversation. "Cassandra, what do you think you were doing?! You had no permission to leave the house!"

"Well I was scared! You did some stuff to me, that you can get into huge trouble for! How do you expect me to stay in that cruel place you call my new room?" 

I was a bit stunned hearing this. That girl seemed so afraid of that man. I was about to go in and give her a little help, but then the man punched her in the face. The girl started to run away again. I grabbed her and said, "Oh my gosh are you okay? We'll talk about that later , just come with me." I pulled her into my car and we drove off." 

I looked at her. She had a huge bruise on her cheek. "Why did he do that?" I asked. She cried. "I, I- Its just, to horrible." Wow. I couldnt help but think what has this girl been through. "Whats your name?" I asked her. Something I was really surprised about is that she wasn't getting all excited over me. Since Im in One Direction. Possibly she doesnt know the band? No, she has to. "Im Cassandra, who are you?" 

"Niall. Niall Horan." I said. She wiped her tears and nodded. "Well Niall, would you mind dropping me off to a hotel?"   

I felt bad for her. I didn't want to leave her alone. "No. Your coming with me."  

"What?! I dont even know you!"

"Trust me. You do."


I crossed my arms and gave a pout look. I really didn't want to go with him. We just met. But still. His features. Everything about him is just so familiar.  We finally got to his place. Whoa. This place, its, huge. I walked in and took a seat on the couch. Amazing.


I let her rest for a little bit. I went upstairs to tell the guys. "Hey, Zayn, Harry, Louis, Liam."

"Yes Niall? If your looking for the chips we bought, its in the kitchen." Harry said. I laughed. I was hungry, but we had bigger problems going on. "No. Uhm, I brought a girl." They all stood up and looked at each other. 

"Niall, you've never done that. So, why?" Liam asked. I sat down and scratched the back of my head. 

"Okay, I really needed to though. It wasn't for my good. It was for her. Some man, that I think she lives with, they got into a fight, and the man punched her. She was trying to run away from him, so I took her with me." 

"Niall, that's an excellent story. Whens the book coming out?" Louis said.

"Yeah, and come on. She would have been to busy screaming over you." Zayn said.

"Well, she doesnt know me. Come on I'll show you her." 


I waited downstairs for Niall. I heard him coming. Niall came down with 4 other guys. I stood up. That's were he was from! He's a member in One Direction. "Oh! That's why you were so familiar! Your in One Direction. I knew that I knew you from somewhere. Hey guys, Im Cassandra."

"May I ask you a question? Why aren't you, uhm, whats it called,...fangirling?" Louis said. I laughed. They think I'm like that? No. "Well why should I? I mean you guys are just people, like me and everyone else."


I smiled when she said that. She gets us. She understands. I think I can get use to her. "Cassandra, stay with us for a night, yeah?" I said. 

"I dont know..." 

"Its dangerous out there! That man can look for you, and Im worried!" I stopped. I was worried for her. All the boys looked at me and laughed. Cassandra laughed too. 

"Well, I guess I can stay for a night."
