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)


8. The start of a new adventure

Louis held open the car door for me. The other boys cars were no longer in the driveway and it was past 1:00. It was now 6:40, and Niall was going to be pissed. I told Louis to go home and that I would face Niall's wrath. Louis gave me a small peck on the check and drove away as I opened up the door. Niall was sitting on the couch as I opened the door. When he saw me he stood up and gave me a hug.

"Where the hell have you been?" Niall yelled as he pulled out of the hug. "I tried calling your phone but you never picked up!

"I'm fine, my phone is turned off just in case Phil calls again. And Louis and I were just hanging out. We went to the park and got some ice cream," I said, being sure not to mention Louis secret spot. 

"Well then, I'm glad your all right I guess." Niall said. He looked down at the ground like he didn't know what to say next. "Want some dinner?" Niall asked quickly looking up. "I ordered some pizza, I was waiting for you to come home to eat it,"

"Thanks Nialler," I giggled. He must've been worried if he hadn't already eaten. I grabbed a plate from the cupboard and put two pieces of pizza on the plate. Niall did the same and we sat down at the small table that sat in the corner of the kitchen.

"So um..." Niall said but stopped. "I was thinking about your education, and since you only have one year left of school, I signed you up to start the fall term," Niall said quickly. "And it starts tomorrow," he added quickly. I stared at him, I'm sure my mouth was open.

"You did what?" I can't go to school! I've been gone for the past 3 years! I'm way behind the other kids!" I yelled.

"I know, and you'll have me and the other boys to help you with homework and stuff," Niall justified. "It'll be good for you. Meet some new people besides the boys."

"But I haven't exactly been a people person the past three years! The only contact I've had the past couple years has been Phil and you!" I stood up from the table.

"I know that, but this is going to be good for you. School starts at 8:00 tomorrow, I told the secretary that you would be there early for your books and classes. Now I don't want to talk about it anymore. I don't like talking about it, but mum said it would be best for you," Niall said. I sat back down at the table.

"You talked to mum?" I asked.

"Um, yea. I called her when the lads left. I told her everything and she said that going to school would help protect you. Phil would never think that you would be in school since your behind," Niall explained. We finished out dinner in silence.

I thought about mum and what she had said. She did make sense. Phil would think that I would stay with Niall and that Niall would never let me out of his sight. He would never think that I was in school. After dinner I walked into my room. I was tired so I decided to go to bed early.

The next morning Niall walked into my room and turned the light on. I shriveled underneath the covers trying to escape the blinding light. Niall walked over to the bed and pulled the covers off. I tried to grab them back but couldn't quite see where I was grabbing.

"Sorry sis. It's 6:30, time to get up. I'll make some eggs for you then I'll drive you to school," Niall said. "Now get up and get dressed," Niall instructed.

I slowly unglued myself from my warm bed. I was really nervous. I hadn't been to school in such a long time. I opened up the closet and pulled out a pair of skinny jeans and a sear white top with a purple tank-top. I walked into the bathroom and quickly got dressed. I flat ironed my hair then went out to the kitchen for breakfast. Niall was holding a pan and was making the eggs. When I walked in he looked up at me.

"Well someone is looking sexy today," he laughed.

"Niall!" I screeched but soon started to laugh also. Niall set a plate of eggs and sausages down at the table. I sat down and started to eat. Once both of us were done with our food Niall drove me to school. Niall pulled up outside of the large gated school. He put the car in park and looked at me.

"I really don't want to let you go," he said. "Everything in my brotherly instincts are telling me not to let you go again,"

"I'll be fine Nialler. How about I call you during lunch?" I asked, trying to comfort him.

"Alright," Niall said giving me a smile. "But if you don't call then I'm coming to check up on you myself," he laughed.

"Fine, but you better not embarrass me or anything. You would ruin my reputation," we both started laughing.

"Alright," Niall said. "You better go. You need to go by the office and get your classes figured out and fill out some papers,"

"Ok, I'll see you after school." Niall said as I got out of the car and waved as he drove away. I took a deep breath and walked through the unfamiliar gates.

It was the last class til lunch time, and I was starving and ready to go home. I was tired of going up to the front of the class and saying the same stuff.

"Hi my name is Emily Horan, but everyone calls me Em. I live with my brother Niall and just moved here from Mullingar Ireland," Blah Blah Blah.

I sat down in the small desk and pulled my hoodie around my face, hoping that the teacher wouldn't see me and ask me to share the same old crap that I had been saying. I was looking around the class when I felt a small tap on my shoulder. I quickly glanced up and saw a girl about my age with long brown hair. 

"May I sit next to you?" she asked. I smiled at her.

"Um sure," I said. The girl dropped her bag at the base of the desk and sat down.

"I'm Ali," the girl said. "I'm guessing your the new girl Em?" she asked. I was surprised that she knew who I was.

"Um yea. How did you know?" I asked.

"News travels fast around here. Not very often do we get new kids," I laughed. I didn't really know how I felt about the whole school knowing who I was. "And plus we've had every class together," she added. I looked at her, trying to remember seeing her. "I sit in the back a lot, not a whole lot of people notice me,"

"Oh! I'm sure that's not true," I tried to make her feel better. The teacher stood up and faced the class.

"Hello everyone!" she chirped. "We have a new student today, would you like to come up and tell us about yourself?" she asked as the whole class turned to face me. I wanted to say no but I got up anyway. "Now whats your name?"

"Emily Horan, but everyone calls me Em," I said as I faced the class.

"Wonderful Emily!" the teacher said. "And where did you come from?"

"Um. Mullingar, Ireland," I said. I knew that it wasn't really the truth but it would be really weird if I said 'Um, I don't really know. I spent the last 3 years locked in a house with my abusive father,' No one was going to find out about that.

"Great! And where are you living?" the teacher asked.

"With my brother Niall," I said.

"Wonderful!" the teacher piped. "You may take your sear now," I slowly walked back to my desk next to Ali. I felt like everyone was judging me, staring into my soul. I sunk into my desk and tuned out.

I walked around the canteen, looking for a place to sit but to no avail. I scanned the large room and saw Ali walking towards the doors with her lunch. I ran up to her.

"Hey!" I said. "Can I sit with you?" I asked.

"Sure!" Ali replied. I followed Ali out the large front doors and out by the gates that were closed. By the gates was a huge tree. Ali sat down underneath it and so did I. I set my food on the ground and pulled out my phone to call Niall. On the first ring he picked up.

"Em are you alright?" Niall asked quickly.

"Nice to hear you too," I laughed. "I'm fine Nialler," I said.

"Good," I heard Niall breath and say something else but not in the receiver.

"Niall who's with you?" I asked.

"The lads, Louis worried about you," Niall said.

"Oh Lou is there! Let me talk to him!" I squealed.

"Hey Em's," Louis said. "How's school? Made any new friends yet?"

"Um, its school. That's the only way to describe it," I laughed and heard Louis chuckle too. "And I made a new friend too," I said as I smiled at Ali who just took a bite out of her sandwich.

"Aw that's great love!" Louis exclaimed. "Oh and by the way, I'm going to pick you up after school. The lads and I have a little surprise for you,"

"Oh um ok," I said. We said goodbye and I hung up and turned to Ali and smiled.

"So I'm your friend?" she asked.

"If you want to be," I said.

"Sure!" Ali exclaimed. We ate and talked between bites. The bell rang and we both stood up and walked to class. We both picked the seats in the back and whispered the whole time.
