Safe And Sound -Niall Horan Love Story-

I saw her. Lifeless. Laying on the cold hard ground. I ran over to her and scooped her up in my arms. She was barely breathing. Her body was covered in bruises and she was bleeding. I shook her torso a little it to see if she would wake up. Nothing.
I cued, "Everything is going to be alright, Leah. You're in my arms. Safe and Sound."


2. One

*Beep Beep Beep*

I forced my eyes open and looked up at my alarm clock. It read 9:30 am. I immediately shot out of bed and grabbed my clothes that were scattered on the floor.

"I'm late!" I yelled as I pulled my t-shirt over my head then started to pull one pant leg over my leg then the other.

I ran to the bathroom and quickly brushed my hair. Leaving my hair flat, I ran out of the bathroom, grabbed my apartment key and shoving it in my purse then quickly left my apartment.

"Late for work again?" Mrs.Jones, the elder woman from apartment 10,  asked me when I walked outside and over to the bike rack where my bike was locked up.

I nodded my head while pulling the lock off and hanging it over the handle bars.

Mrs.Jones lightly shook her head in disgust.

"You shouldn't be out that late at night at the bar." She started to say. "I've told you one too many times."

I lifted my leg over my bike and sat down on the seat then positioned myself to leave.

"Sorry." I said before taking off down the road. I worked as one of the bar tenders at night. I got paid good because of all the drinks the guys there bought me and the tips they gave me. But it was never enough to buy me a car. When I finally figured that out, I decided to get another part time job. I worked as a bagger at my local grocery store that was right down the street from my apartment.

I quickly peddled away, dodging the pedestrians along the way.


I parked my bike in the back of the store and locked it to the bike rack. Then I  quickly sneaked inside and to my position.

When I got their I already saw Carrie stuffing someone's groceries in a bag. Carrie was one of my co-workers who usually bags for one of the other cashiers in the store and one of my closest friends.

A sigh of relief flooded through me once I saw her.

"Thank you." I whispered to her. "Did you check me in already?"

"Yep. You're all set." She said.

"Thank you." I repeated and then gave her a hug.

"Yeah yeah yeah. But I can't keep covering for you." She told me and then backed away from the spot she was standing in.

"I know. I'm sorry. I owe you one." I said and then walked to the spot she was standing and pinned on my name tag.

She nodded her head before turning and walking to her working area.

As the day got busier, time went by a lot quicker and before I knew it, my shift was finally over.

"Hey, Leah." Carrie said as she grabbed my arm and stopped my from going out the door.

I turned around to face her.

"Yeah?" I asked.

"Are you working at the bar tonight?" She asked, while fiddling with something in her hand.

"Yeah. I always work at the bar during the night. Why?" I asked, curiously.

"Oh well, a couple of my friends and I were gonna go out to the night club tonight and have a couple of drinks and I'd thought ask you to come along." She told me. "But you're obviously too busy with your work schedule and stuff." She finished off and then started to walk away.

I stood there for a moment in hesitation. I haven't been out clubbing in a while and it would be nice to take a night off.

"Hey, wait!" I yelled to her.

She stopped, mid in her tracks then turned around.

"Yeah?" She asked, softly.

"I guess I could take a night off at the bar." I said.

Her face lite up a bit with excitement. It looked like she almost knew that I was gonna cave in.

"Great! We'll meet you their at 8:30." She said before turning back around and leaving.

I sighed a bit before finally walking out of the store.
