For the love of my daughter {One Direction}

"I told you to stay out of my life Sam! You said you didn't want anything to do with her, so why do you suddenly care when she's happy!?"
"She's my daughter, I know what's best for her!"
"You know shit! You've never been here for her! You don't even know her! Just leave us alone!"
"I want her out of the media Alex!"
"She likes being with the boys!"
"I'm taking this to the police!"
"Yeah do that. I have the custody so you can do shit about it!"
I knew Sam had never liked One Direction, but taking them out of Caitlin's life now that she finally had them in real life wasn't fair, though I couldn't help but wonder if he was right. Was it really good for my daughter to be surrounded by the paparazzi whenever she was with one of the boys?
My name is Alexandria Griffin, but call me Alex, I'm an 18 year old model and mother for a 4 year old girl.


18. The fight with Sam


Louis and I pulled up in front of the school. After the many times that Caitlin had been picked up by one of the boys you should have thought they would be used to it, but it was a chaos when she was picked up. At least the others still treated Caitlin right, and normal.

“Don’t you get tired of that Louis?”

I pointed towards the paparazzo that was standing in front of us looking all weird and snapping pictures whilst calling out our names.

“Always, but I just choose to ignore it. He’s just doing his job.”

“I guess.”

We stepped out of the car and walked inside without any trouble, which I was actually really happy for. No one was asking questions as we picked up Caitlin and walked back out. She was holding Louis in one hand and me in the other, but as soon as we were outside Louis picked her up and carried her all the way to the car, due to the paparazzi.

We drove home in silence. I was glad I had Louis with me, but I wish I could just take the boys at my friends sometimes instead of the paparazzi following us around all the time.


I got up from the floor, I had been playing with Caitlin ever since we got home and just enjoyed some mother – daughter time, when someone had knocked on the door. I didn’t know if I wanted to open the door, as very few people knew where we lived.

I saw a tall shadow outside the door and didn’t know if I wanted to call the security already. I was nervous that someone was going to hurt us, but I still didn’t know what to do. We hadn’t talked about this before.

“I know you’re in there Alex! I know you’re with them! Open the door!”

Sam voice filled my ears. I went to the door and opened it lightly before it was pushed open with a huge force that pushed me back.

“Where are they?!”


“The band! That gay boy band you’re staying with! Did they take her? Have they totally replaced me? Your brother? Your best friend?”

“I have no idea what you’re talking about. The band is my friends and they haven’t replaced anyone.”

“Please! You haven’t spoken with Nick for a week! Why do you make her live life like this?”

“Why do you care?”

“Because she’s my daughter!”

“You never cared about her! You never cared by either of us until you heard I was doing that shoot with Harry! You just started showing up as soon as he was part of my life!”

I heard a cry fill the room and I turned around to see Caitlin standing with her doll in one hand and stare at me fighting with Sam.

“Oh no Caitlin, don’t cry.”

But it was too late. The tears were streaming down her face and she ran off. I ran after her and soon found her hiding in Zayn’s bed. That’s where I always found her. She had something for him. She didn’t want to speak with me so I just went back to soon find Sam standing in the living room where there was toys and music sheets all over the place.

“I’d like you to leave my house.”

“Oh this is your house now?”

“I live here, and I’d like you to leave.”

“We’re not done yet and you know it!”

“I don’t care Sammy. There’s nothing more to say. I want you out of my life and most of all out of Caitlin’s life! You do no good to her.”

“I can be her dad!”

“You don’t even want her!”

“I wanna be a part of this now! Why don’t you understand?!”

"I told you to stay out of my life Sam! You said you didn't want anything to do with her, so why do you suddenly care when she's happy!?"

"She's my daughter; I know what's best for her!"

"You know shit! You've never been here for her! You don't even know her! Just leave us alone!"

"I want her out of the media Alex!"

"She likes being with the boys!"

"I'm taking this to the police!"

"Yeah do that. I have the custody so you can do shit about it!"

“We’ll see about that!”

“You can’t do this Sam! You’ve done enough to ruin my life, you said yourself you didn’t want to be a part of Caitlin’s life. You said you didn’t want to be part of mine, and now that I’m friends with the band you’re back trying to ruin it for us? She’s happy! Ok? Your daughter is happy, so why can’t you just be?!”

“Because she’s getting attention from everywhere.”

“Is that really such a big deal? Have you seen the look on her face when she’s with Zayn and Perrie? They love her and she loves them. Or when she’s with Harry and me? Or when she’s playing around on the floor with Louis and Eleanor? They are doing it all together. We’re doing it all together and she got 5 uncles that she loves with all of her heart, and I swear I’ll mess you up if you’re taking that happiness away from her! You took my teenage years you’re not going to take my daughter as well.”

I was standing all up in his face with tears streaming down my face. I knew what he was capable off and I knew he would do it if he really wanted this, but I couldn’t lose her. Not now. Not ever!

“You can stop this with me. Just make sure she won’t get out in public with them and I’ll leave it.”

“I can’t force her to stay away from the boys, not to mention force them to stay away from her! We’re family.”

“Prove to me you’re a big girl now.”

“Sam please?”

“Babe you can beg all you want and it’s not going to make me change my mind. Take care now.”

He left as I fell to the floor crying. What was I supposed to do now? I knew how serious he was. I should have called security and asked them to kick him off of the ground.

After a couple of minutes I pulled myself together and went into Zayn’s room where I found Caitlin in the sheets crying. She still hadn’t calmed down.

“Shh princess.”

I sat down on the bed and rubbed her back but it didn’t help at all. She was too far away to calm down right now. I took her up from the bed and carried her around the room trying to stop her from crying.

“Everything’s gonna be okay sweetie. Shh.”

As I had gotten Caitlin to calm down and almost fall asleep on my chest the front door went open and Caitlin started crying again.

“Caitlin please stop crying. It’s okay"

As long as the tears fell from her eyes they would fall from mine as well, but as soon as Zayn appeared in the door it was like magic was in the room. Caitlin crawled down from my grip on her and locked herself around Zayn’s leg before he could even get a chance of asking what was going on. He looked at me confused and saw the tears that was still placed in my eyes before he lifted Caitlin up and sat down on the bed comforting her as easy as anything.

“Are the rest of them here?”

“Yeah, there’s pizza in the living room if you want some.”

“No thanks. I’m not in the mood for food. Will you make sure Caitlin gets to bed around 8 or 8.30? I really wanna get some sleep.”

“Sure I’ll put her to bed then.”

“Goodnight hun.”

I kissed her cheek as she was half asleep on Zayn’s chest.

“Thanks Zayn.”

“You’re welcome. I can tell it’s been a tough day.”

“It really has.”

“Just tell me if we need to talk about it.”

“It’s okay.”

I left the room after saying goodnight to Caitlin again and then went into my own room where I changed into a t-shirt, just to sneak back out of the room and into Harry’s bed, where I had been sleeping over the past couple of days.

I lay down under the covers and let the tears stream down my face again. What was I going to do? I knew I had the custody but he scared the crap out of me and I needed to feel safe. I knew he was gonna be angry next time he saw pictures of me with them or Caitlin with them, but what was I supposed to do? Force a child to stay away when she was smiling all the time they were around. When she felt safe.

I heard the door open, but my sobbing didn’t stop. I soon felt Harry’s hands against my back. I could sure tell it was him. He had closed the door and lay down behind me holding me tight.

“It’s gonna be okay love. I’m here for you.”

I felt his lips against my skin which made me cry even harder. I was so lost. I didn’t know what to do at all. I just wanted to sleep and get it out of my head.
