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.


36. Chapter 35

(Lucy's POV)

It's been a week since I've been in Italy with my friends. I was walking home from the market because unfortunately, even though I want to die, I have to eat.

I was walking through a park, nearly empty, when I sat down on a bench and pulled out my iPhone5(curtesy of Liam). It's been 6 days. I have never gone that long without talking to Nina..


"hey Nina."


"Nina shut up!"


"now, one question at a time."

"why did you leave?"

"I had to."

"why didn't you tell me?"

"you wouldn't have let me go."

"yes I would have!"

"not alone."

"well- no but"

"no buts Nina. Butts are for sitting," I heard her chuckle. "you needed to stay there with the boys. I had to come alone. You can't protect me from everything. Especially what happened..."

"Lucy... What did happen? They boys said not even they know. You just... Up and left."

"are you with the boys?"


"speaker phone me."

"ok. You're on speaker."

"Lucy! Lucy are you ok?" I heard Harry say in the background.

"yes Harry I'm fine. Is everyone there?"

It was silent for a moment before Zayn spoke. "erm... Yes?"

"you're lying. Who isn't?"

"Liam. He left as soon as Nina put you on speaker." Louis said softly.

"is he mad?" silence. "I knew it..." I said as tears pricked my eyes.

"Lucy, tell us what happened" Nina said.

"Nina.... Grandma passed away." I whispered as my tears began falling once again.


*flashback(4 days ago)*

"how did it happen?" I asked.

I was sitting in an uncomfortable hospital chair that was placed in the private office of Dr. Green, the one who examined my grandma.

"the cause of her death was a heart attack." he said slowly.

"but- but she was so healthy! I just saw her a week ago."

"I know. It was very sudden. I'm very sorry." he said softly.

"do you know what caused it?"

"well, we are not certain but we have a guess." I was silent, waiting for him to continue. "when Jill was found she was on her computer. There was a picture on the screen. It's very rare but we assume your grandmother died from a feeling of happiness. The knowledge that her job on this earth was done... Like I said, very rare. To die from a sudden pleasure, but we saw what she was looking at and that is our best guess as to why."

I was silent before a thought popped into my mind. "what was she looking at?"


"what was on the screen?"

"ah yes'" he says, reaching into a file and pulling out a piece of paper. "it was these pictures."

On the desk in front of me lay a picture of me and Liam, kissing at the airport. Then the other was Liam and I on screen. The news interview. The look of happiness in my eyes was undeniable. 

This is what caused my grandmas death.



I had made my way home(well to the boys house) by now, I was walking up the drive to the door.

"Lucy! You did not cause this in any way shape or form." Nina said through the line.

"but I did!"


"yes Nina! It's my fault. My happiness caused her death."

Suddenly there was a beep on the line. I looked at the screen I see and incoming call.

'Liam(: <3'

"Nina... I'll call you back."

I quickly hung up and answered Liam's call.


As I said this I turned around and a glint on the mail box caught my eye. Slowly I started back towards it.

"Lucy where did you go?" he asked, his tone serious.

"I went home."

"why! Why didn't you tell me?"

"I couldn't"

"couldn't what? Trust me!"

"no Liam. It's not like that..."

"Lucy. Relationships are built on trust and if I can't trust you to tell me where you're going and why..."

When I reached the mail box I couldn't hold back the gasp that escaped my lips.

Hang from the post were my dog tags. Attached to them, a little note. Slowly I picked it up and read it.

'Glad to see you're back, Lucy. I'll be coming for you.'

"We're over."
