"Harper, we want to ask you something." Louis said. They were all looking at me. "We want to know if...
~...~ END OF RECAP ~...~
*•*•*•*• Harper's P.O.V *•*•*•*•
"We want to know if you'd like to go on your with us? We aren't leaving right away, we're leaving in a couple weeks." Louis said. Tour?
"Yes, love. One Direction?" Niall said. Oh right!
"Oh right! Your band!"
"Yes, love. Our band. We are pretty famous so there will be cameras all the time, but this way you'll be safer because your stepdad will be looking in Doncaster so he won't know and plus dad will be busy with work and all." Louis said.
"So, what do you say?" Harry said.
"Ok. If it's not to much trouble. I wouldn't want to bug you."
"NONSENSE." Louis yelled.
"You won't be bugging us." Harry said.
"We want you to come." Niall said.
"It's going to be lots of fun." Liam said. Zayn didn't say anything but nod and smile.
"Ok. I will come." They all cheered. "But, what will I do while you guys are rehearsing and at interviews and such?"
"That's the best part the girls get to come on this tour so you won't be alone!" Zayn chirped.
"Now, let'a go get ready. The girls will be here in a bit and we'll be heading off to the beach." Louis yelled. BEACH? I can't go to swim. My bruises will show. No one knows about the bruises! How do I get out of this one.
"Erm... Uh.. I don't have a bathing suit so, uh, I can't go." I said awkwardly hopefully they'll buy it..
"Don't be silly the girls got you a bathing suit and will give it to you when they get here." Niall said. Then the door bell rang. Harry went to answer. They girls walked in and looked at us and saw we weren't ready.
"GO GET READY WE WANT TO GO!" All 3 girls yelled at once. We all nodded and went upstairs but before I could Dani gave me a beautiful bikini. It was hot pink that will make my skin look tanner and had a floral design on it. I smiled and thanked her. I went up stairs and locked my self in the bathroom and slid the bikini on and looked at myself in the mirror. I looked at the biggest bruise I had on my stomach and it didn't even look like it was healing.
*** FLASHBACK ***
I was just sitting being bored out of my mind when,
He came into the room obviously drunk. I was lying down on the blanket I had looking up at the ceiling. When he came in I sat up only to be pushed down again, by him. He looked at me and I tried not looking back. I was scared. I hadn't even noticed the bat he had in his hand till he held it up and smirked. I got really scared.
"Hii babe" he said. His breath decked from alcohol.
"H-hi." I stuttered. He smirked again. He then looked at the bat then me ten at the bat then me. I closed my eyes waiting to feel the pain that I would feel in a couple seconds. And then I felt it right in my stomach it was so hard! That metal bat hurt like a- bam another! I'm crying historically right now. He did it 3 more times before slapping me.
"Well, that's enough for tonight. I guess." He smirked. By the way it was about 1 in the morning. "Sweet dreams princess. Hope I didn't hurt you to much oh wait, I did." He hit me with the bat again -in the same spot- before laughing and walking out.
*** END OF FLASHBACK ***
There was banging on the washroom door. Dang, I guess I zoned out.
"Harp, hurry up."
"Hello! Answer us."
"Are you ok?" I didn't know who was talking because their voices were muffled.
"Huh? Oh, sorry. Can you guys leave for a sec I just need to get something to wear. And I'll be right down." My voice was a bit shaky because of hat flashback I just had. There was a chorus of ok's before I heard the door shut. I got out and ran into my closet. I got a pair of black skinny jeans. I green long sleeved puffy shirt. I tucked in my shirt. I put on some black flats and a belt. Input my hair down into it's natural waves. I put some mascara and lip gloss on. I grabbed a sweater and walked out. I don't look dressed for the beach. I'm all covered up. Oh well. When I got downstairs everyone was staring at me.
*•*•*•*• Niall's P.O.V *•*•*•*•
She came down the stairs all covered up. Skinny jeans, sweater, long sleeved shirt (you could tell even with the sweater over it) and hair down. Isn't she going to be hot?
*•*•*•*• Louis' P.O.V *•*•*•*•
What the heck is she wearing? She is aware we're going to the beach, right?
"Uh, Harper? Won't you swear wearing that? We are going to the beach after all." Perrie said. Everyone looked at her.
"Um...uhh... You see, the thing is.. Um" she was stuttering and no knowing what to say.... "So, I umm... Get cold easily you see. So, I have to, uh were long sleeves and such to uh not be cold?" She said. But it came put as more of a question. What is she hiding?
"Are ya sure?" Harry asked obviously not buying what she said.
"Uh, yea. I uh get cold easily." We all nodded but none of us believed what she said.
"Okk... Lets go." Liam said awkwardly.
"TO THE BEACH!" I yelled and picked El up bridal style and ran to the car. She was giggling to whole way. She is so beautiful. I was driving, El was in the passenger seat. Harry, Niall and Harper were in the back and Zayn, Perrie, Liam and Danielle were in the middle. We were just talking about the random eat things. 20 minutes later we arrived at the beach! "WE HAVE ARRIVED!" I yelled. We all ran out and went to find a space on the sand. We found this place not to close to the water but not to dat either. There wasn't many people here since it was a school day and it was morning. The lads and I wore our swimming trunks here so we just took off our shirts. Now we were waiting for the girls. El, dani and Perrie finished. Harper hasn't even started to change.
*•*•*•*• Harper's P.O.V •*•*•*•*
Ok. They are all done. But why ate try standing here? Right I haven't changed yet. What do I sa-
"Harper, aren't you gonna change?" Dani interrupted me from my thoughts.
"Um.... No." I said hoping they wouldn't ask further questions, but with my amazing luck [sarcasm] they did.
"Why not?" El asked.
"Um... Because I'm not swimming." They couldn't have more questions, could they?
"Why not?" Zayn asked. Why? Oh you know cause my whole body is covered in fudging bruises that's why!
"Uh... Because.. I am allergic to swimming?" It came out as more of a question. They all erupted into laughing.
"Harper! Oh god. You can't be allergic to swimming. Why don't you wanna come swimming?" Niall said. Pressing a hand to my knee. He is so sweet and very cu- wait, what? Noo. I didn't just almost call Niall cute...
"I don't want to get sun burn"
"We've got sunscreen" Liam said. UGH.
"Harper, what is the REAL reason?" Louis said. All serious.
"You could trust us." Harry said. And the others all nodded. Should I tell them? They won't judge me,right?
"Please?" Niall said. With his puppy Dog eyes. He is to cut- What is happening to me? I took a deep breathe. I could tell them right?
