My Rock

Maria is a 16 year old girl who lost her brother in a car crash. Her father blamed her and turned to alcohol. He abuses her when he's drunk. Her mom is subject to emotional break downs and can't be there to defend Maria some times. Just as Maria is about to give up hope she meets the One Direction boys, and finds something to keep her going. And who knows? She might just find a little romance in the process.

Maria’s POV: This day was going from bad to worse. All I wanted was to leave, but this guy, Louis, said I couldn’t leave with my 20 bucks until I talked to them. So I sat down, like I always did when I talked, and looked at them. I’m pretty sure they thought I was crazy. “Well? Do you want to talk or not?” I said. My voice was cold. I just wanted to leave to find somewhere to cry. They sat down and started asking me all sorts of questions.

            “Where do you go to school?” The local high school in LA

            “How old are you?” 16

            “Do I play any sports?” Yes, volleyball and softball.

            It went on like this for probably 5 minutes until Niall, the blond who was creeping me out with his staring, asked me if I had any brothers or sisters. I knew that question would come eventually, but I was hoping it wouldn’t be for a while. I went rigid. I had no clue what to do because I was about to start crying, like I always did when I thought about Michael. So I simply stood up and turned cold again. “I’m leaving. You can keep your 20 dollars, but if any of you follow me I’ll call the police if I can control my temper enough to not hurt you.” With that I turned and walked away, leaving them staring in shock.

Niall’s POV: When I asked about her family, particularly about her siblings, she stormed off. She told us not to follow her or she’d call the police…if she didn’t hurt us first. Crap! I was starting to fancy her, but not her attitude. She seemed to have the emotion of a stone, but I think she was hiding something, something that would tell me why she had so many walls built up around her.

            “Good going, Niall” said Liam. I just stared at him. How was I supposed to know she would flare up at the topic of her family? “Go apologize!” I don’t want to have the police called on me or to be ‘hurt’ by Maria, though I doubt she could hurt me.

I get up and start running after her. Maria!” I yell. She turns around and gets in a fighting stance. I stop, suddenly. So she really meant she’d fight us. I take a couple of steps forward, and she tenses up even more. I’m now about 6 meters from her now, so I jest say it. “Maria, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to offend you. Family is just a topic that typically comes up in small talk, and I had no way of knowing you would be offended. I’m sorry.” I really was. I had this strange attraction to her, and I didn’t want to ruin it. Finally she relaxed, but she kept her face cold. She turned and walked away.
