Live while we're young

How can a plane ride to England go so wrong?


9. Scream

I looked at Niall in shock, before taking off in the direction that I heard it from. I jumped over bushes and ducked under trees, willing my legs to go faster. Niall was way behind me, carrying all the coconuts. The trees started to thin out, until I was on a beach. Our beach. Romany was sat on the floor, her hands over her eyes. She must of screamed. I scanned my eyes around our home, searching for something, but nothing. Until I saw the shore. Bodies. About 20. Dead.

I tensed up, and felt Niall run into me from behind.

'What?' He whispered. I shook my head, and collapsed on the floor, the stench suddenly reaching me. Niall finally saw, and dropped all the coconuts.

'Oh shit' He said. I looked up at him, my eyes brimming with tears. He bent down and gave me a hug.

'It'll be okay' He muttered softly.

I nestled my head into his shoulder, fitting perfectly. I rubbed my eyes on his shirt, getting rid of my tears. I pulled away, smiling weakly. Niall pulled me up, and I leaned on him. He wrapped his arm around my waist, guiding my towards Romany.

I sat down next to Romany, and give her a hug. All the others joined us, giving the same reaction. After what seemed like eternity, I decided to go and get a closer look. I grabbed Niall's and Zayn's hands, and led them to the shore. I peered anxiously at all the bodies. More men than women, I noticed. Maybe they had tried to swim, but didn't make it. I suddenly felt Zayn let out a cry of pain. I spun round to face him, and saw the tear trickle down his face.

'Zayn man, what's wrong?' Niall asked. Zayn just pointed to the middle of the group of bodies. Niall followed his finger, and jumped back in horror.

'No, no, no..' He whispered, his voice cracking. 

And then I saw him. His eyes shut. Liam.
