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.


14. Chapter 13

(Lucy's POV)


I look up to see Louis looking at me with a scared expression. Liam had gone to get a drink from the kitchen, obviously something happened.

"What do you think they did?" Louis whispered, standing up and trying to peek in.

"Probably had crazy monkey sex on the counter or something. No big deal..." Harry said, looking at his phone.

"Yeah Harry, cause the bodily fluids caused by sex are a great and sanitary thing to have where you prepare your food" Zayn said, looking at Harry, then back at the movie.

I could hear Liam lecturing them in the kitchen. I held my hand out to Louis and he pulled me up. "Well... Lets find out." I jumped back on to the couch as he turns around. "Onward my steed!!" I yell, jumping on his back. 

"Well that was a mistake." Harry says right before Louis takes off at a dead sprint. Heading out the front door and to the middle of the street

"SUPERMANN!!!" He screamed.

 After running a few circles he returns inside, me still on his back, trying not to puke. When we enter the kitchen though we are both speechless. Eggs paint the floor while flour is gathering on the wall like dust.

"What the hell...?" Louis muttered, dropping me on my ass.

"Omf- LOUIS!!"

"Oh! I'm sorry Lucy! SUPERMAN WILL SAVE YOU! Kevin will help!!" He yelled, turning around to help me up.

Suddenly, Liam shoots up from behind the counter. "Never. Ever. Let them make cookies again. Now help me clean. They are going out."

"I'm out!" Louis yelled, running back to the living room.

"I'll help you Li."

For 2 straight hours, we were on our hands and knees, scrubbing yolk off the ground. I finally sat back against the counter.

"what's wrong?" Liam askeds, looking at me worriedly.

"this is a pain in the ass."

He chuckled an sat next to me. It's quiet for a few minutes... A calm peaceful silence.

"Where did everybody go?" I had suddenly realized it seemed oddly quiet in the One Direction house hold.

Liam chuckled, "they probably went out. Otherwise I may have made them clean."


"So. What do you want to study?" Liam breaks the silence.


"What do you want to study in college?"

"Oh.... Um. Business Administration and Special Education. Those are my majors. I want to minor in dance."

"how did you come up with those majors? They clash!"

"huh?" I was my turn to be confused.

"business and teaching... Do you plan on opening a school?"

"no! The teaching, while its something I would really love to do, it's just a fallback career incase my original one doesn't work."

"How did you realize that's what you wanted to do?"

I sat up straight and looked at him. "I dunno..." I shrugged, "ever since I could remember I have always wanted to open my own dance studio... And that's it. My dream. I've known since I was 3."

"Where does the special education come in?"

"Oh. That's a funny story."

"Do tell!"

"Ha! Ok. Well, it's because of this little boy, in a class I helped for high school credits. Him name was Alex. Super cute! And amazingly smart for 5 year old. If you asked him what echolocation was, he could tell you."


"Exactly! Anyway, I never noticed it until the teacher said something. He would come in everyday, sit in the same chair, write with the same color, pick the same class job, use the same pointer. When he did weather, all the little figures would have to be lined up perfectly."

"What's wrong with any of that? How did that help you decide on special education?"



"Aspergers syndrome."

"What's that?"

"Aspergers syndrome is a form of autism - a developmental disorder"

"That's sad..."

"But he was so bright... Exceedingly smart. Someday I'm gonna be pointing at a picture of him, as a big smart scientist, and say 'I knew him'. I don't know why... I just have that ability to connect with the disabled. I could spend so much time helping them and playing with them..."

"That's amazing."

"I know. He is so smart."

"No not him."

"No?" I look at him. He looks completely serious, staring deeply into my eyes as if they hold the answer to an unspoken question.

He shakes his head. "No. I mean, yes! That's amazing. But I wasn't talking about that. I was talking about the spark in your eye when your talking about it. Like this one little boy changed your life."

"He did..."

Again. It's silent for a moment, before he speaks. "You know... I wasn't kidding yesterday."

"Weren't kidding about what?"

"I really would like to be more then friends..." He looked at me questioningly.

I thought about it for a minute. "Liam. I would love to-"

"LUCY!!" Nina came barging in.

"Nina! When did you get back?"

"Just now. And I just heard what Liam asked you. Lucy you can't."

I stood up and looked at her. "And why not?"

"Because. Niall and I were just out... We got caught by paparazzi... Lucy my name will be out in newspapers. If you date Liam yours will be too. There will be nowhere to hide."

I could feel the blood drain out of my face.

"To hide from what?" Liam asked from behind me.

"From the thug that tried killing us." With that she left the kitchen. I turned around and looked a Liam, who had now stood.

"Lucy..." He said.

"She's right."

"But Lucy. I can protect you. I told you, I won't let anything happen to you." 

"Liam." I grabbed him in a hug. "I believe you... But I don't know if it would work. He has a gun Liam. I won't let you get hurt. I just need to stay hidden." I whispered. I pulled back from the hug and looked him in the eyes. They were full of sorrow and remorse.

I leaned up and placed a kiss on his lips. They were warm and soft. The kiss was sweet and tender. As I pulled away and ran to our room, tears were building in my eyes.

I bumped into Harry, Who was coming out of the bathroom.

"Sorry." I muttered, still looking down.

As I tried to slip past him, he grabbed my arms. " Lucy?" I just looked into his green eyes. "Lucy what's wrong?"



"Nothing's wrong, OK HARRY! I'm perfectly fine! Just leave me the fuck alone!"

He looked shocked and I instantly felt terrible; however, you can't take something back once it's already said. I took this moment to rip my arm from his grip and continue towards the room.

I step in and lock the door behind me. Pulling out my phone, I dialed the number of the person I had been trying so hard not to think about. The person who made me who I was today, tears were flowing from my eyes. I knew he wouldn't answer. He never does. I just wanted to hear his voice. 

Absentmindedly, my hand goes to the crevice in my neck where mine and his dog tags should be...

"Hey, this is Conor's phone! Sorry I didn't answer, I'm probably in Afghanistan, you know... no big deal. Anyway, get back to you when I can! Here comes the beep, you know what to do!"
