I hear the door of my flat open, but I don't get up from the couch. I take another swig of the beer I have, and turn my head to the door. I see Harry and Liam there, and they walk farther in.
"Niall. We heard. Are you okay?" Liam asks. I slowly move my head side to side, and tears spill down my cheeks.
"Come here Nialler," Harry says, pulling me into a hug. I cry into his shoulder, as Liam walks into the kitchen.
"We're here!" Louis yells. Zayn and him sit on my spare chairs.
"So you know why she did this?" Zayn murmurs.
"No. We were totally fine. A couple days ago, she ha-ad a nightmare. That I left her. And I told her that I would never leave her. After that, she seemed a little off. Always ch-checking over her shoulder. Th-then today, I told her that. . . That. . . I loved her. A-and she said that she needed time to her-herself. What does that e-even mean?!" I yell, grabbing my beer again. I take a big swig, and set it down. Liam comes back in, and hands me a tea.
"It's okay mate. Girlfriends are overrated. I should know," Liam sighs.
"No more alcohol for you dude," Zayn scolds, taking my beer. I scowl, and sip my tea.
"Have you told anyone about you and Danielle?" I ask. Liam shakes his head.
"Not yet." Liam says. Harry sighs, and curls up into a ball.
"You guys are all needing guy time! Laser tag tomorrow?" Everyone agrees.
Suddenly, I hear a scream.
"Abby!" I cry, shooting up. I grab the extra key she gave me, and sprint out. I run down the hall, and I open the door. I see Abby, cowering in a corner. A big man stood in front of her.
"L-leave me alone. I did-didn't tell Niall. You said you would leave him alone!" She cries. "You said if I dumped him, he would be safe. If I left with you, you wouldn't touch him! You can't hurt him! I love him!" Abby wails. I gasp, and the man turns around.
"Looky who's here Abbigal. The boy who you tried to protect." The man pulls out a gun. Abby races over to me.
"Leave Niall! Leave! Run, get out of here! Save yourself!" She cries into my shoulder, as the man comes forward. He grabs Abby, and pushes her away from me. He points the gun at her.
"NOOOO!" I shout, jumping in front of her. A pain shoots through my gut, and I hit the ground. The man laughs, and steps towards us.
"NIALL!" Abby shrieks. The sides of my vision blur, as I see the man grab Abby.
"Abby," I whisper. "I'll find you!" I say, as I almost loose my grip on reality. The man pulls Abby towards the door, and I see her hit him on the arm.
"Wait Zach! I'll leave with you, if I can help him!" Abby cries, as everything turns black.
"I love you Abby,'' I breathe.
