Em is abused by her dad and one day she has enough of it. She runs away to her brother Niall. (This is when 1D aren't famous)


11. Secrets

I woke up to the voice of three very concerned voices. I slowly opened my eyes and saw Greg, Niall, and mum surrounding me.

"Whats wrong?" I asked as I slowly sat up.

"We heard you scream in your sleep and you were thrashing around yelling," mum said. That's when I remembered my dream. Phil was outside. I quickly jumped up and ran over to the window and glanced around to see if there was any sign of him actually being there, but there wasn't.

"What are you looking for?" Greg asked.

"Looking for Phil," I mumbled. "I guess it was just a dream," I said as I turned around.

"What are you talking about?" Niall asked. "What did you dream?"

"Well I woke up to go to the bathroom and when I came back I saw a face in the window and it looked like Phil," I said.

"Oh," they all said. "Well I'm going to make breakfast!" mum chirped, changing the subject. "I havn't cooked for my little girl in awhile!"

"Good idea mum!"Niall and Greg said. "We'll help," Greg said.

"Why don't you go get ready for school," Niall instructed.

I walked into my room and grabbed some clothes then walked into the bathroom to get ready. About half-an-hour later I walked out of the bathroom. I walked into the kitchen where Niall, Greg, and mum sat talking quietly. As I walked in they all looked up at me and quit talking. 'What's going on?' I thought to myself. We ate breakfast in mostly silence. Afterwards it was time for Greg and mum to leave. Niall offered to drive them to the airport so I wouldn't be late for school. We all said goodbye and drove off in the different directions.

I walked into class and saw Ali sitting in the back of the room. I slid into the desk next to hers and smiled.

"Hey Ali," I said.

"Hey Em," she responded. "How are you?' she asked.

"I'm fine, just tired. I had a nightmare last night and it felt really real," I told her.

"Oh, what was it about?" she asked. I looked at the ground not wanting to respond. "Oh if you don't want to tell me its fine," Ali said when she saw my look.

"No its not that. I'll tell you but just not right now," I said hoping that she would understand.

At the end of the day I walked out to the student parking lot and got into my car. I pulled out my phone and saw 3 missed calls. One was from Zayn, the second was from Liam, and the other was from Harry. I decided that I should call them back. I called Zayn first and he picked up on the third ring.

"Em, are you alright?" he answered.

"Well hello to you too Zayn," I laughed. "I'm fine, why?"

"Well its just some guy came up to me today and told me to stay away from you," Zayn said. "I didn't know who he was but apparently he had told the same to the others and your mum," Zayn said then cursed. "I wasn't supposed to tell you!" I nearly dropped the phone.

"Wh, what did this guy look like?" I stammered.

"He was shorter then me, he was probably Niall's height. He was really big though and had light brown hair but he looked like he was going bald," Zayn described the man and I automatically knew that it was Phil. He had found me.

"Thanks Zayn. Um, I have to go know. Can you do me a favor and call Louis and tell him that I'm gonna stop by his flat? Thanks," I said as I quickly hung up and called Niall. "Why the hell did you hide all this from me?" I yelled when Niall picked up the phone.

"What are you talking about?" Niall asked.

"Phil!" I yelled. "Does that ring a bell?"

"Did you see him at school?" Niall asked.

"No but apparently you did, and mum, and Greg, and Louis, and Harry, and Liam, and Zayn! And I never knew about it!" I yelled.

"We thought that if you didn't know then you'd be protected," Niall said calmly.

"How was keeping it secret going to protect me?" I continued to yell.

"I don't really know. I figured that the less you knew, the better,"

"Well I don't know how that's supposed to protect me." I said as I pulled into Louis driveway. "I have to go. I'm at Louis's flat, I'll be home later tonight."

"Ok, be careful," Niall said as I hung up the phone.
