2. Driving Home

Liam's Pov.

I drove home from the the airport. The boys and I were on our break. I was going home after our Up All Night tour. I had gotten myself an apartment in Wolverhampton because I was going to be staying by myself. My parents were away for the winter visiting my sisters in America and it was way warmer there since she lived in Florida. I was driving down a strip that was pretty much in the middle of no where. There was a car siting a little ahead of me. What the heck was it doing there? Its like 4 am! As I neared the car I decided I would check to see if there was anyone there and if they needed help. I pulled over and saw a girl on the hood. I couldn't really see what she looked like. It was the middle of the night anyways. I saw tear paths streaked down her face. I hope shes ok. I tapped her shoulder. She woke up with a start and flinched away from my touch.

"It's ok I wont hurt you, I promise." I told her gently.

" What do you want?" she said kinda scared.

" Well i saw your car on the side of the road and i wondered if everything was alright?" I replyed.

" My engine caught on fire and is completely done for," she said quickly. I could tell she was hiding something.

"Do you need a ride or something?"

"Thats very kind of you but i dont have anywhere to drive ,too." she replyed looking at the ground.

" You could stay at my place if you like. I was going to be alone for the winter anyways." I asked that without even thinking it was compltely impulsive. There was something about her I was drawn to.

" I just need to find out where i am." she said softly.

"I know a diner maybe twnty miles ahead. Then we could figure out something for you. Does that sound alright?"

She nodded her head and got off the hood of her car and went around to the back and brought out a purple bag bursting with things. I reached out to take it for her but she clutched it to her chest. I took her to the pasenger seat of my Range Rover and opened it for her. She mumbled her thanks. I knew she was hiding something. It wasnt gonna let her go anywhere else but with me. She seemed so fragile and hurt. She was obviously on the run with no where to go. I wanted to help her. I cant stand to see people hurt. I got in the car and we drove in silence. Once we got to the diner. I was opening her door before she could even unbuckle. She jumped out of the car still clutching the bag to her chest and we walked inside it was still like 4 am so no one was there.

We settled into a booth and sat opposite each other. Since we were finally in the light i got a real look at her. She wasnt the tall but wasnt vertically challenged either. She had light brown almost blonde hair. That went down to the ends of her elbows if it was down. But now it was in a fishtail over her shoulder. We both ordered a coffee.

"Whats your name, love?" I asked.

"Delihla." she said softly.

"So why were you out there all alone?" I asked gently.

She looked into my eyes for a second. As if deciding if I was someone she could tell. Then she begain speaking," I found my boyfriend cheating on me and i got in the car and drove away. I have no where to go. The rest is for another day.." her voice trailed off and tears streamed down her face.

"Hey its ok don't cry." I got out of my side and went over to her side and put my arm around her. She resited at first then she relaxed into my arms and cried into my shoulder. Then I told her she could stay with me and i wouldn't except no for an answer. Then we just sat there, her crying into my shoulder. Later i realized her sobs had stopped and she had fallen asleep on my chest. I still sat there and held her. She was a stranger but i hoped we could become friends. I thought over this whole insane situation then I fell asleep too.
