9. My Hero

I was just about to let out a yelp when someone banged on the door. Noah stood up and went to answer the door, while I sat up and wiped the tears from my eyes and fixed my clothes. I covered my mouth to keep in my sobs. "Who are you?" Noah said calmly, as if we were a normal happy 'family' living in a normal happy place in a normal happy world. "I said, WHO ARE YOU." He repeated. Zayn was suddenly in front on me, on his knees. I cried and hugged him quickly. 

"Go get in the car." he said.

"She's not going anywhere." Noah protested. 

"Just go." Zayn told me, ignoring him. He pushed me gently towards the door. I opened the linen  closet door and took out a box. It contained $400 that I had earned over the last 2 years. I took the money out and clenched it tightly in my hand. I closed to door and looked at Noah. He was clueless to what was happening right now.  

"Get the baby." I told Zayn. 

"I got her. Just go." I walked out and pressed the elevator button as Noah approached me.

"Who the hell is this guy? Your new boyfriend?" He mimicked. 

"Its none of your business. Just leave us alone." He slammed me against the wall and pressed our noses together. I could feel his facial hair scratching my chin. "Zayn!" I yelled at the top of my lungs. He came out with Lily in his arms. His face was like stone. "Baby close your eyes!" I told Lily, because I knew exactly what he'd do next. When Lily shut her eyes, Zayn pulled Noah off of me with one arm, then he punched him right in the jaw. Noah was out cold on the ground and Zayn lifted me off of my feet and brought me into the elevator in the blink of an eye.

When the doors closed, I squatted to the floor and cried with my hands over my face. "It's going be alright babe." Babe... is that a British thing? I shook my head and cried some more. When the doors opened, I stood up and took his hand. We walked over to the truck that we had been in just hours ago. Zayn opened the door for me and I hopped in without saying anything. I held my hands out to take Lily, but he shook his head and whispered. "She's fallen asleep." I nodded and scooted down. He sat beside me and placed his left arm around me. I rested my head on his shoulder and bit my lip. He kissed the top of my head and I sighed. 

My Hero.
