6. The Awful Subject

            When Niall had finished ordering the pizzas, we walked outside to wait. The odd noise from earlier was getting louder. A cry of female warriors, perhaps? I turned my head to look in the direction where the cry came from. And it all made sense, when a bunch of teenage screaming girls appeared. The boys exchanged a look of panic as they ran off, with me right on there heals. We ran into a dark alley, where the girls quickly lost sight of us, and perhaps went home. 

            "That was at least twice as many as last time" Harry said panting. My growling stomach reminded me that we had forgot the pizza, but we couldn't go back to that area. "What are we going to do for food?" I asked clutching my eager stomach. "We could go to Nandos" Liam suggested as he brushed his trousers off. "Please, please, please, can we?" Niall asked excitedly, forgetting that he had just had to run for his life. "Is Nandos okay with you?" Louis asked me.

            "Sure, I'm good with just about anything right now" I replied with a smile. Niall of course knew where the nearest Nandos was located and quickly dragged us along as well. We sat down and waited to order. I talked to the boys finding I enjoyed them also and started to learn about them, but not much before they turned the conversation over to me.

            "So how do you know our little Irish friend?" Louis asked. ‘Oh great’ I thought silently to myself, but the waiter saved me and came to take our order.

            Once the waiter had taken our enormous order zayn asked "So you never told us how you met Niall" Niall tried his best to come up with another topic, but Zayn sure was persistent. I didn't mind talking to them though, at least they hadn't mentioned my scar. I took a deep breath telling myself I wouldn't let myself cry like usual

 

             "Almost two weeks ago, my brother was driving me and my sister home and we got in a car accident because this guy hit us. That guy was..." I looked at Niall for his permission, he nodded back at me and I continued "The guy who hit us, it was Niall’s brother" Everyone at the table looked towards Niall as he blushed and looked slightly embarrassed.

             I took another deep breath, mentally preparing myself for the next part "When the car hit us my sister was killed on impact and my brother's brain was damaged and now he doesn't remember me." Everyone's faces fell and they looked at the ground giving me a moment to wipe my eyes. I wasn't sly enough though, Louis came over to me and hugged me, which only made it worse. I barely knew him and he cared so much and understood me more than my parents did.

             I excused myself from the table and went to the bathroom to pull myself together. I wiped my eyes and put on new mascara when I walked back to the table our food had arrived changing the subject to our full table. Everyone had ordered twice as much food as I had but when I was half way through my food everyone else way done meaning they all had to stare at me until I was finished.

             When I was finally done I started to continue my story when Louis interrupted "You don't have to finish if you don't want to love" he said kindly

             "That's OK" I gave a grave smile "You guys deserve to know. Anyways, the other day I met Greg and the counselor made us meet again and so today I went to his house looking for Greg and that's when I met Niall. That's pretty much it"

             "We'll I'm just glad that the counselor made you meet with Greg again, otherwise we would have never would have met you. You know, besides at the hospital, but that doesn't really count" Liam said.

              I looked up surprised "You were at the hospital?" "We all were" Zayn added, "We were together when Niall got the call and I drove everybody there" Louis pipped in "Oh ,I didn't know that, did you see me?" "Yeah " Harry said. "Oh" I mouthed, embarrassed remembering how much of a mess I was. "But we didn't know it was you" Louis said quickly, “and I didn't remember it was you until Liam said something”

              Just then my favorite song break even started playing "Are you going to answer your phone?" Niall asked "Oh right" I said blushing "Hello?" “Where are you? I am at Simons and he has no idea who I am and why I am here?" My mom asked frantically. "Oops sorry,” I said, “We are leaving right now.” I said motioning for the boys to get up and leave, Liam payed and we rushed back to Simons place where my mom was waiting angrily. I made sure I had everything, only to find my phone was gone. That was weird. I had it at the restaurant, so that means one of the boys had it. I turned around to find them passing my phone around "What are you doing?" I asked

              "Putting out numbers in” Louis said smiling brightly with his blue eyes. Niall handed my phone back, "Will I see you again?" Louis asked. "I dunno" I answered mischievously "Maybe, only if you want too" "But I do" Louis whined like a five year old. "Then you will" I answered simply and got in the car.
