Wide Open Spaces

Anna expected to be all alone this summer on the farm while her parents went on a long trip around the world. But what she didn't expect was that she'd be accompanied by all of One Direction--and fall in love with Harry.


33. I Wouldn't Do That

I was looking around a cute little jewelry store when there was a crash at the counter. I spun around to see a man in a ski mask holding the cashier at gunpoint.
"Hand over the money," he sneered.
The woman squeezed against the wall, scared to death.
I was still in shock as I crept behind the man and slowly pulled my emergency gun out of my purse. I held it inches from his head as I said, "That money's not going anywhere."
He turned around, keeping the gun aimed at her. We just stood there staring at each other. I narrowed my eyebrows as I looked into his cold, hard eyes.
I whipped my foot through his legs, tripping him. He fell to the ground and I placed my foot on his stomach.
He gradually aimed the gun back at the cashier. "I wouldn't do that if I were you," I said. He didn't move a muscle. I quickly moved his hand to aim the ceiling as I pinned his other arm down with my knee. I pried the gun out of his hand and then twisted his arms at painful angles.
I almost didn't notice the police running in and handcuffing the man when I heard, "Anna!"
I whipped around to see Harry by a case of earrings. He ran towards me and wrapped his arms around me. "Are you okay?" he asked frantically. "Please tell me you're okay!"
I pulled away. "I'm fine!"
"Anna, you don't understand--"
"Oh, I completely understand!" I interrupted.
Harry shook his head and grabbed my arm again. "He had a gun, Anna. He could've shot you."
I wriggled away again. "I had a gun too, Harry. If he shot me I would've shot him back twice!"
Harry's eyes looked deep into mine. He looked scared. "I love you." He put his hands on my cheeks and kissed me deeply, intensely.
