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.


11. My Rock

Niall’ POV: Maria cried for probably 10 minutes. The entire time I just sat there hugging her and listening to Ed’s song, which was on repeat. Finally, when she stopped crying, she looked at me with her big, watery eyes. They were actually quite beautiful.

            “I bet you think I’m crazy.” she said looking down.

            “I don’t judge until I know the story behind the person, love.” She looked deep in thought, so I didn’t say anything else. She eventually started talking.

Maria’s POV: I was trying to decide whether or not to tell Niall about myself. I mean, I had only known him for what? A day? But it felt like I had known him my entire life. I felt like I could tell him anything, and he’d be there for me. I decided to tell him.

            “My brother, Michael, died 2 years ago in a car crash. He was killed on impact because he didn’t see a car coming up on the driver’s side. He was talking to me, and just didn’t see it.” I told Niall everything. How my dad turned to drinking, how my mom started having emotional break downs, and how my friends knew nothing about this. By the time I finished Niall looked like he was about to start crying. “You’re going to leave me know, aren’t you?” I asked. “Everyone I’ve ever told has left me. They don’t want to be seen with me, knowing how dysfunctional my family is.”

            “Maria,” he said, looking right at me. He held my face between his hands, so I couldn’t look anywhere but his deep blue eyes. “I won’t leave you. I promise. You are so strong, and I want to be here for you.”

            “Thank you Niall. I should tell you that the real reason I’m out here is to pay respects to Michael.” I pointed to his picture. “That’s him. He was my rock, and know that he’s gone, I don’t have one.”

            “Now you do.” was all Niall said. I finished honoring Michael, and then we made s’mores. No joke, Niall ate like 20. I had two. After that we talked for a little while, but eventually started looking at the stars. I’m pretty sure I fell asleep on him.
