I woke up to hear the soft sound of footsteps outside my room. It was definitely still dark outside and my room was pitch black. Shivers ran down my spine as I remembered what happened with my mum. I fumbled around on my bedside table for the switch to my lamp. My heart began to beat quicker as I found the switch. My room was illuminated with light that was slightly blinding at first, but as soon as my eyes adjusted I could see the whole perimeter of the room, it was empty, thank god. The sound of footsteps stopped as soon as my light turned on and the owner of the feet had obviously noticed the light. Shit.
I slowly got out of bed and grabbed the golf club I had hidden under my bed for protection, incase anything like this happened, I was hoping not to use it but desperate times cause for desperate measures. I creeped closer to the door, my golf club at hand. I reached out my left hand and grabbed the handle to my door, slowly easing it open, I was about to swing my club, only to realize there was nobody actually there. My eyes scanned the corridor, it was completely empty. My heart didn't stop pumping like it was in the olympics though. I shut the door and walked back to my bed, trying everything to calm myself down.
Just as I was about to get back into bed my door swung open, standing in the doorway was Harry, his curls were in a mess and he was only wearing a loose white t-shirt, which he had obviously only threw on a couple of seconds ago, and a pair of boxers. He was holding a baseball bat over his head, threatening to hit someone.
" Christy! You okay?!" He asked me with his eyes darting around the room and sometime glance back at the corridor. " Yeah, I'm fine." I got out of bed and walked closer to him. " Did you hear the footsteps too?" I asked him. He nodded, obviously on edge.
" Did you see anything, anyone?" Harry asked me, slightly scared. I shook my head. Harry looked really worried. A sudden lightning bulb of realization hit me, only I wish I hadn't though of it.
" It was him, wasn't it, the man that hurt my mum." I said, barely a whisper. He nodded grimly and wrapped his arms around me.
" Go to sleep now Christy, It will be okay." Harry whispered into my head. I shook my head, unwilling to.
" Fine." He picked my up and threw me on my bed then wrapped me up in the blankets, he then took a spare blanket from my wardrobe and chucked in onto my sofa. He then pushed the sofa to the other side of the room, just a little bit in front of the door. Harry lay down on the sofa and snuggled into the balnkets.
" Now, if anyone comes in here, they will have to deal with me first. Go to sleep love." He told me, smiling reassuringly. I nodded.
Harry really was an amazing friend.
when I woke up, Harry wasn't on the sofa anymore, he had obviously left as the blanket was strewn across the room. I remembered the events that occurred the night before. I remembered the panic and the fear I had felt when there was somebody in the house. I got out of bed and slipped into my onsie. I then walked down the stair to where the boys were sitting in the kitchen, looking very serious. They didn't see me at first and carried on with their conversation
" Well, we can only wait, they are looking for him." Liam said.
" Yeah, thank god they know who it was, so it isn't such a mystery." Zayn muttered
What were they talking about? Niall saw me and smiled, " Good morning Crinkles!" Niall chirped. I smiled back at him, anxious to know what they were talking about. " So, what were you guys talking about?" I asked, curiously. They all looked at Liam for a bit then he nodded.
" Well, what happened last night, there was somebody in the house, it was the man that .. hurt your mother, and the police got his finger prints, and are tracking him right now." Liam, told me slowly, afraid to hurt me in anyway what so ever. I nodded, this was good news though, so why was he so worried.
" That's good isn't it? Please tell me its good!" I begged, not wanting any more complications in my life.
"Well...." Liam was cut off by louis sore voice. " Yes, Christy, It is good news." He said reasuringly. I nodded, surprised that he had actually had the guts to talk to me after what he did yesterday evening.
" What are we doing today?" Zayn asked, breaking the extremely awkward silence.
" Uh...... Movie?" Harry suggested.
