You Light Up My World

A hidden relationship, hiding from her horrid foster parents. This is the life of Riley. The only people she can trust are the 5 biggest pop stars in the world... One Direction. When she first meets them she sees that they are the only people that can rescue her from the hell she is living through. When a relationship starts to grow between she and Zayn she realizes this is her first time she can have the happy safe future she deserves.


8. The Letter and The Post Office


Riley’s POV: as soon as we got back to the house I fell straight asleep. At the house there were six bedrooms one for each of the boys and Tessa. Since Tessa and Niall always sleep in the same bed Tessa only uses her room as  a closet, so as she says its now practically my room.

Yesterday when Tessa and I went shopping I got some crop tops and jeans. I bought some Sperry topsiders, which Tessa insisted on paying for. My favorite shirt had to have been a long sleeve waffle shirt with a design of Big Ben on the front. I put that on and then wore my black jeans with the shirt. I wore my hair down parting it to the left as I usually did. I put on a bit of makeup then went down stairs for some food. Niall was already making pancakes while Liam sat on the couch flipping through channels. Niall told me he would make me some pancakes too. I sat next to Liam and we watched the classic Looney Toons. We talked about our families back home and Liam told me about his brother Nick, and how he missed him a lot. (nick is 15) I told him that he should bring him here for a while. He looked at me like why didn’t I think of that and then smiled. “Wow I really should ask the boys.”

“Ya go ask them now.” I said as he got up and went to go ask Niall since he was the only one up.

Niall screamed that the pancakes were ready. I had a plate of two, Liam; 2 and Niall; 7. Tessa walked down stairs and Niall announced “morning love” she grinned and hinted to his pancakes mumbling “fatty” between laughs

“Me a fatty?” Niall said jokingly as he picked Tessa up by the waist holding her up high until she took it back. They were so cute together I thought just as Zayn and Louis came down. Zayn was all dressed whereas Louis was still wearing his pajamas and his hair was all ruffled. We turned on a movie, we were watching Home Alone. Just as the little boy in the movie screamed after putting the after shave on his face we all turned to the stair case as Harry walked down the steps claiming that we were rude to not wake him when we turned this on. Liam then stopped the movie and announced, “Hey as Niall and Riley already know, I was wondering if Nick my brother could come stay here for a week or so?”

“Nickky boy HAS to come!!!” Louis shrieked

“Ya that would be great” Liam, Harry and Zayn said together

“Yess!! I wanto meet him” Tessa commented. After we finished the movie I asked Tessa if I could use her computer to write a letter to Willy, Jacob, and Skylar. She told me where it was then I went up to her/my room and started typing with my left hand. It read..


Dear Skylar, Jacob, and Willy

Sorry it has taken me so long to write to you I just wanted to tell you I escaped. During my escape Jim threw a knife at me and it struck me in the shoulder. Luckily it did no permanent damage I am in a sling for ten days and it’s going to be hard to do anything for about a month or longer. It was bleeding like crazy so I ran, I ran from Dave when I was a couple blocks away I went into the Starbucks I work at. Luckily Tessa was there. She took me to the hospital where I now have 13 stiches in my shoulder.

Skylar you are never going to believe it but you remember Tessa? Well, that boy friend of hers that she moved in with was none other than... Niall Horan. Since I had no place to go Tessa offered me a place to live with ALL of ONE DIRECTION . Since I had no other place to go I moved in with them. I was of course attracted to Zayn right away and I have to admit I do fancy him. He is just warm and so sweet. Tessa whispered to me last night that Zayn and I had really hit it off. I hope it goes somewhere. Anyways I am so much happier here than I was with Jim. I no longer am keeping my 3 jobs instead I am just sticking with my Job at Starbucks that I will begin in Monday again if I can do everything even with the sling.

By the way Skylar, Liam has a younger brother named Nick that I think you would really like (he is cute to) I hope I can see you three soon! How is everything going? How are your new foster parents?

Hope you all love it there



I folded up my letter and asked if someone wanted to go to the post office with me. I couldn’t help but smile when Zayn shot up saying that he was pleased to take me.

It was only a couple blocks away so we walked. It was a bit chilly so even though I wore a small jacket I was still shivering. Zayn looked at me and took off his jacket and wrapped it around me rubbing my back. I smiled and thanked him. While thinking to my self what a gentle man he was.

“Aren’t you cold?” I asked because now he was just wearing a muscle T.

“Its not to bad” he informed me. I looked at his chest, which was showing and revealed his tattoos, on his upper chest I saw the tattoo of the phrase he has in Arabic. Not to be creepy but I also saw his pecks and could see his abs through his shirt, again I found him very appalling. I bit my lower lip as I looked at him, he must have noticed because he began to blush. As we walked on to the post office Zayn questioned, “So whom did you write too?”

“My foster siblings, they went off to live with another family until they finished school.” I explained to  him in sensible tone.

“O… ermm, so what’s that like?” he asked wondering if he said something wrong.

“Well, I love them like any ordinary sibling, they are my family, and at this point the only family I have.” I responded. After that we just talked more about our lives any what I went through. There was never a dull moment, and Zayn was always listening intently.

When we  got to the post office I put a stamp on the letter and sent it, then Zayn and I walked out.
