6. She's Fine

We stayed up pretty late with the boys, watching movies and telling jokes and getting to know each other. By 2 am, Lily had fallen out like a light from all the excitement. After saying goodnight to everyone, I carried her to the guest room, where we'd be staying, and gently placed her on the bed. I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. 

The next morning, Lily wasn't next to me. My first reaction was to panic, so I jumped out of bed and ran down the hall and into the main room. Nothing. Just silence. She wasn't in the kitchen or the dining room or in the bathroom. Nobody was. I ran up and down the hallway opening doors and closets. She was nowhere to be found. I barged into Zayn's room and saw him sleeping peacefully. I jumped on him and shook him awake. "What what is it?" He said with a groggy voice. I was almost in tears.

"I can't find her. Where did they take her? Why would they take her without telling me! She's not here! I don't even know them!" I felt my entire body shaking as I spoke.

"They'll be back. Those boys would never hurt an innocent little girl. Just stay calm." He whispered. I wiped my tears and sniffled. "This is exactly why I suggested that you shouldn't come. It was nothing against you, trust me. You seem great. Home is just a safe environment that you know and love, right?"

"Not really. I mean, I guess." I answered. He caught the tear in the corner of my eye with his thumb. "Sorry. For waking you up. And I'm sorry for... well, this." Gesturing to the fact that I was still on top of him. I didn't move though. 

"You say sorry a lot..." He said, with a husky chuckle.

"Well, I guess I'm a apologetic person." The panic was suddenly gone and a had a warm fuzzy feeling in my stomach. I felt his hot fingers playing with my fragile hands. He sat up and moved my body with him. His face went from sweet and sincere to seductive. He moved his face closer to mine and pressed his lips on my neck. One of his hands sat on my thigh, and the other on my collarbone.

Suddenly, I heard a door close and muffled voices. Lily's giggle snapped me out of the other world I had entered. I flung myself off of Zayn and out of his bedroom. When I got into the kitchen, the boys were setting the table with Lily's help. "Morning Amber, we got some breakfast if you'd like to join us." Harry said. I stomped over to him and pushed him (even though it probably didn't hurt.) 

"You just took my baby sister out of here as if I wouldn't mind?!? Do you understand how worried I was? I don't even know you people! Just... Why would you do that!?!" My words slurred as the panic returned and my body started trembling again. I went over to Lily and dropped down to my knees in front of her, examining every inch of her little body. She was fine. I kissed her forehead and pushed a couple of stray hairs behind her ear. "Eat baby girl. Then we uh, we're gonna get going."

"No!" She whined. "I want to stay!"

"We can't. We have to go back to our own home." I stood up and cleared my throat. 

"Listen, Amber, we are really sorry. We just thought that maybe you could use a little more sleep while we distracted Lily for a while." Liam said. 

"Thank you for thinking of me, but I would've been perfectly okay." I tried to smile. "Sorry for shoving you Harry." My small grin turned into a giggle. We all started laughing and we stopped when Zayn came in. 

"Look, Mr. Cranky decided to join us." Louis joked. 

"I want food." He said simply, raising his eyebrows. I took a seat next to Lily and he sat across from me. I mouthed 'Sorry' and he grinned. We served ourselves and I served Lily, then we began to eat. Zayn and I exchanged looks from time to time, with sly smiles and I felt the butterflies explore my body again.
