Lily Anderson isn't the luckiest person in the world but that changes when she bumps into a young irish boy....


1. Meet and Greet

Lily's POV:

It was dark and dusty underneath this bed but I'd rather stay under here than get killed by my step-father. All of a sudden I heard the door to the bedroom fly open. 
I saw the feet from my position under the bed that belonged to my step-father. His name was Charlie. He was the only one capable of taking care of me after my mother died four years ago. 
After he searched the room he walked out without finding me. I then decided to make a run for it. I booked it to the front door. Before I could even open it I felt a hand on my back. It was Charlie. 
He spun me around and picked me up by the collar of my shirt.  He pulled me close to his face. I could smell the alcohol in his breath but decided to ignore it.  He started whispering to me with his raspy voice, 
"Listen here kid....your mother died four years ago and there is nothing you can do to bring her back." 
By this point tears were starting to form on my waterline. 
"So that makes me in charge of you. You hear me?" 
I needed someway to escape, so I did the first thing that came to my mind. I brought my knee up and inbetween his legs. I dropped to the ground and looked up to see Charlie kneeling with his hands in-between his legs. I then turned around and ran out the door as fast as I could into the cool night. 
I kept running as fast as I could until I bumped into something..or should I say, 'someone', and fell to the ground. 
"Ow..." I moaned while trying to get get up. I suddenly felt a pair of strong hands wrap around my waist. As soon as I looked up it was like I was in a daze. I was looking into a pair of bright blue eyes that belonged to a boy with blonde hair with a few streaks of brown in it. 
I was snapped out of my daze when the boy started talking to me; 
"I am so sorry! I am such a clutz. I need to look where I am going more!" 
I noticed that he had a very mesmerizing irish accent. It suited him well;
"Ugh...I am such an idiot." he said under his breath.
"No you aren't an idiot. I just had other things on my mind thats all.." I said while looking at the ground.
"Like what?" asked the Irish boy.
"I..." I started but then I thought to myself- Why would I tell this very gorgeous boy my problems? He would think I'm nuts.
Obviously noticing my hesitation the boy offers me his hand and says;
"Why don't we go to Starbucks and get a coffee...?" 
I thought about it and after a couple of seconds I took his hand and we walked down the streets of downtown London. 

Niall's POV: 

The gorgeous young girl and I got our coffee's and sat down in a booth near a window.
" you have a name?" I asked. 
"Uh....yeah, it's Lily." she said still a bit hesitant. 
"That's a lovely name....mine's Niall," I said while looking into her green eyes. 
Lily was gorgeous. She had long blonde hair and sea green eyes.
I have no idea how long I was staring at her for but long enough to make her feel uncomfortable.
"Sorry.." I say.
"Mmhmm," She says while tugging at the bottoms of her sleeves, obviously still uncomfortable.
"So...what was on your mind before you ran into me?" 

Lily's POV 

Niall seemed very trustworthy, so I told him everything. I told him about my mother, my step-father...everything. By the time I was finished tears were streaming down my cheeks and dripping onto the table. Niall got up and came to my side of the booth and gave me a big hug. For some reason I felt safe in this boy's arms. I felt like nothing can hurt me. 
We pulled apart and I just wanted to crash straight into his arms again...but I didn't.
"So since you obviously don't have anywhere to stay, would you like to stay at my place until we figure this whole thing out?" he asked. 
"! I barely know you! I don't want to just barge into your life and your house....I don't have to." I replied. He chuckled. 
"You don't have to do anything. But I want you to stay with seem special Lily," He said while grinning. This comment made my face go pink and he obviously noticed.
"Okay..." I said while rolling my eyes and laughing. 
I took his hand and we walked out of Starbucks and out into the darkness of the night.
