What would you do if you were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time? Run? That's what Lucy and Nina did. Running led them to One Direction. Now, becoming best friends with the boys is easy. Lovers, amazing. But when names get to the press on a trip to Italy,  everybody better run because stories will be told and horrors will be relived when someone shows their SCARS.


2. Chapter 1

Chapter 1.

(Lucy's POV)

"please! Please no! I have a family. I have kids and a wife. They need me!"

We watched as the man begged. Begged for his life. We were both frozen, as if we were cement. 

"just shut up!" the thug yelled. He was big and scary, with a ski mask, black sweatshirt, and a gun.

"pl-l-ease... I-I just wan- to say g-goodbye..." the mans sobs became slower an steady as he accepted defeat and his head begun hanging low to the ground. I can feel Nina's hand gripping my as she realizes what is about to happen.

Gang shootings are common in this part of St. Louis Missouri. We had often heard about them and steered clear of this section of the town. Today, however, our dance competition was right in the center of it. And on our way back from our lunch we were caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

A sudden "BAM" pulls me out of my train of thought. I quickly turn around and take off at a dead sprint, dragging Nina along with me.

"HEY!! GET BACK HERE!" the big man yells at us. SHIT! I look back to see him running after us and my speed picks up.

Both Nina and I are breathing heavily when we turn out to an unbusy street and keep running. The guys footsteps behind us gradually get slower and I look back to see I dropped something. My dog tags. The one my brother sent me from Iraq. Now the thug has my name. I try to turn back and run for them but Nina doesn't let me as she keeps running forward. We turn several street corners when I finally make her stop.

"NINA!! He isn't following anymore."

Just as I say this a big black van pulls up to the curb. We both jump back, ready to bolt any second. Soon, there is a young boy with blonde hair and icy blue eyes stepping out of the van. Followed by a boy with buzzed brown hair and chocolate brown eyes, staring right at me.
