8. What now? More bad things.
I couldn't believe my parents were gone. I know they were annoying but I loved them so much. It was so much to take in. Especially for poor Will. Suddenly I realized something. I'm 16 and not old enough to take care of him on my own. We would have to go into foster care. What if I never saw him again? He's only six years old. I couldn't leave him. Not now. I started crying even harder and squeezing my little brother tighter.
I had just read in the paper that Isabelle's parents had died. I instantly felt terrible for her. I had to go see her. Ugh stupid rehearsal.. maybe if I told them about the situation they'd let me go. I walked into the studio and the lads walked up to me. "We heard about your girlfriend's parents mate." Liam said. "We're so sorry dude." Louis gave me a sad look. "Rehearsal's canceled. Go to her dude." Harry patted my shoulder. Zayn just frowned and nodded his head solemnly. So that's what I did. The second she saw me she buried her face in my chest and bawled her eyes out. "It's gonna be all right." I reassured her. She kept on crying. I broke my heart to see her this way but later on I'd cheer up or at least try. After a few hours, she stopped crying. I handed her a tissue. "Thanks for coming over, we're taking it pretty hard." "No problem. Is your brother ok?" "No, he's not. He's taking it harder than me. Being so young it's so hard for him. The worst thing is.." she lowered her voice. "I'm not old enough to take care of him. We're gonna have to go into foster care." "What?" "I know it's terrible." "I can't let you leave me, I can't." Now I was starting to cry. "Niall don't go weak on me now please." I put my arm around his neck and brushed my fingers through his blonde hair. "You'll have to live with me." I stated. "Niall I can't let you do that. I have to stay with Will. And since you guys aren't legal to take of him he can't come with me." I sighed. "I'm not losing you Isabelle. I care about you so much to let you go." she nodded. "I know. I care about you too. I don't want lose you either but I have to do what's best for my little brother." I nodded this time. "Until I figure something out, I have to be here with him." "I completely understand. I do believe me." "I know". She smiled slightly.
