The Way That You Do

After Lexis' mother died, her father became abusive. One day when she comes home late, she gets fed up with it and leaves. Her life turns into a adventure as she meets Niall, Liam, Louis, Harry and Zayn


1. I'm Done.

I quietly slipped inside, praying my father wouldn't hear me. I silently greeted my golden retriever, Max, before tiptoeing to my room.

"Where have you been?" A voice asked from the kitchen.

"Out." I mummered still heading towards my room.

"You were supposed to be home at 6. It's 7." My father said standing up and following me.

"Chill dad. I had to work late." I said when he gripped my wrist.

He spun me around and slapped me.

"Too bad." He hissed in my ear.

His hand began to wander to my crotch. I kicked him in the groin as hard as I could before running to my room.

I began to throw random clothes into my bag, hurrying so I could leave.

"LEXIS!!" He bellowed lumbering towards my room.

The second he walked in I swung my fist at him, hitting him right in the eye.

I zipped up my bag and grabbed Max's leash, hooking him up and running out of the house.

I put Max in the back before sliding into the front seat.

I didn't know where to go.

I had no friends, no family, no nothing.

I drove for hours.

I glanced up at a road sign that said "London, 1 mile."

I pulled over to the exit.

After driving through the streets, Max began to whine.

"Alright boy." I mummered parking on the side of the road and getting out.

I walked down the sidewalk, waiting for Max to use the bathroom.

All of the sudden, I broke down.

The memories of all the abuse, the pain, everything.

My back hit the wall of an apartment building, sliding down.

I began to sob, and Max sat next to me.

And to make matters worse, it began to pour.

"Are you okay love?" An Irish voice asked.

I looked up and saw the most beautiful boy ever.

It was Niall Horan, and the streetlight was illuminating his face perfectly.

The only thing I managed to croak out was, "Hi."
