Everything Has a Happy Ending

Savannah was just a normal 14 year old girl living in Houston, Texas. But a shooting in her neighborhood one night can change everything. Her parents and older siblings died in the shooting. Her younger 4 year old sister, DJ, was seen taken away that night. Savannah wanted to do anything she could to get her back. She woke up the next morning with and soon becomes a part of a new family, who helps her find DJ. But Savannah thinks that her life has no meaning anymore.


15. New Family

Savannah's POV

I turned around and saw three boys standing at the doorway. I turn back to look at Mr. Hunter too see what he would say, but I couldn't read his face. He leaned back against his chair and bit on the end of his pen. He sighed and dropped his pen on his desk, "One Direction, am I right?"

Harry nodded.

"You guys are what, eighteen? Twenty?"

He nodded again.

Mr. Hunter chuckled and shake his head, "I don't see how you could adopt them. Y'all are too young. What's going in your head?"

"Can we talk to you?" Louis asked Mr. Hunter. He nodded, "Of course you can." He didn't seem to pleased, though.

"In private? If that's okay with you Savannah."

Still in shock, I nodded without saying a word and walked out of the room, leaving Harry, Louis, and Zayn with Mr. Hunter. I closed the door behind me and sat on the chair outside the room. I leaned against the arm rest. What were they talking about? How the hell were they supposed to adopt me? I shook my head, trying to ignore the fact that One Direction wanted to adopt me. Hey, well at least someone wanted me and DJ. But that means leaving Houston obviously, and probably going on tour with them next year. And we'll be all over the news: "One Direction Adopts Two Sisters." Everyone will know who I am, and I wouldn't have that much of a private life anymore. The fans will know who I am, and that means them loving me or hating me, and-

"Savannah? Are you okay?" I jump out of my thoughts and look up. Liam & Niall stood in front of me. I shook my head, still not being able to say a word.

"You look like you're going to explode," Niall sat in the chair next to me.

I nodded, my leg bouncing up and down. I tried to stop it; useless.

"Are they in there? Louis, Zayn, and Harry?" Liam asked. I nodded, looking on the floor.

"Are you going to tell us what's wrong?" Niall asked me. I turned to face him and shrugged. He laughed and patted my back. "Oh Savannah. I think I know what's wrong. They're talking to that lawyer, what ever his name is, right? And they told you that we want to adopt you, huh?"

I looked up at them, "But how?" I blurted, "I can't have five dads that are like six years older than me. You know how creepy and strange that's going to me?"

"No silly, as brothers. We talked it through, trust me, and we all agreed. Well, I guess that's what they're talking about to him. It's for the good of the band."

I gave Liam a strange look.

"We'll explain to you later."

I took out a dollar from my pocket, "Do you want anything from the vending machine?"

They shook their heads, "thank you, but we're fine."

I got up and walked to the vending machine across the hallway. I grabbed the water bottle and headed back.

"Does Eleanor know you're here? She went out for some errands and I don't know where she is."

"Nope! We came here all by ourselves."

"Then how did you guys-"

"Savannah, we have our ways."

The door opened and Louis and Zayn walked out, smiling. "He wants to see you," Louis chirped. I got up and walked inside. I sat down in the chair next to Harry. "Hi Harry," I smiled at him. He smiled even bigger, like a kid on Christmas morning. I looked at Mr. Hunter, who had a concerned look on his face signing papers. He looked up opened his mouth to speak, "Savannah, this is going to be one heck of an adoption. I don't think I've ever been in this position before, but I understand their reasons, so I gave in."

I waited for him to continue, knowing what he was going to say. I could feel myself starting to smile. Mr. Hunter leaned back on his chair and clasped his hands together.

"How would you like to be adopted, in a brotherly way, by these five guys?"

I smiled and nodded. Harry stood up and cheered. He pulled me up and hugged me tight. "I'm going to have two little sisters! This is so exciting!"

I laughed and hugged him back.

"Come on, let's tell the rest," he smiled and put his arm around me. He opened the door, leaving Mr. Hunter filling the rest of the files by himself.

When the boys saw us they all stood up from their seats. "So," Zayn looked at us, motioning us to say something.

"We've got two new sisters!" Harry cheered and the boys stood up and cheered along with them. "Group hug!" Zayn cheered." We huddled together, ignoring the people around us, who were most likely staring at us.


Harry looked behind him and DJ ran up to him. He picked her up in his arms. "Guess what DJ!?"

"You boys are here!" she smiled. "What?" she looked at Harry.

"Do you want an older brother?"

"Like Josh?" she asked him.

He nodded and smiled. "Yeah, like Josh."

Her face immediately brightened up and she nodded excitedly.

"What about five instead of one?"

"Louis? What are you guys doing here?" Eleanor interrupted Harry and walked up to us. Louis walked up to her and put his arm around her, hugging her. "We got some news, babe. Some really big news."

"She didn't know?" I asked him.

"Nope! Now let me finish, okay?" Louis took the floor, once again. "Well, after some talking, we kind of chose to be there, you know, we adopted them!"
"No kidding!" Eleanor smiled big and hugged me. "I guess I'll be seeing you more often, huh?" I laughed and nodded.

"What's adopting mean?" DJ turned to Harry.

"We're going to be your new big brothers!"

We all waited for her reaction. Her eyes shot big and covered her mouth with her hands. She quickly wrapped her arms around Harry's neck getting all excited. She pulled back and wiggled herself out of Harry's arms. He put her on the floor, and she went and hugged the rest of the boys, one by one, and then Eleanor. She hugged me and pulled me down, so that I was her height.

"We have five Josh's now!" she whispered excitedly, raising all her five fingers. She jumped up and down, her pony tail swaying. I smiled, nodding. "Yeah, I know."

She hugged me again, even tighter. "I love you, Savannah," she whispered in my ear. I squeezed her. "Love you too, DJ."


Mr. Hunter called Harry and Liam in, and they filled out the rest of the forms. Paul joined us after an hour or so, and he congratulated us. He and Mr. Hunter talked in a room together, about who knows what. They talked for what seems like forever.

"Are we still going to Galveston tomorrow?" I asked Eleanor. She nodded her head and smiled. "I promised you, didn't I?"

"We're going to Galveston?" Louis asked us.

"I'm taking the girls tomorrow, I promised them."

"Can we go?" Zayn made a pouty face.

Eleanor nodded, "I guess you can. That means I'm not driving."

Harry shrugged, "I'll drive."

"Galveston tomorrow it is!" Liam threw his fists up in the air.



"Breakfast is ready!" Louis and Harry yelled in the hotel room, probably waking up the whole hotel. I turned around, throwing the covers above my head, ignoring the voices headed to the kitchen. I tried falling back asleep, but it was no use. I stayed under the covers with my eyes closed.

"Oh Savannah!" Zayn sang.

I moaned and hid my face under the pillow. I heard laughing next to me. "It's no use, Savannah. We know you're awake."

I felt someone heavy  jump on top of me.

"Get your butt off of me!" I yelled in the pillow. I tried to move, but he was too heavy.

"Not until you wake up, you lazy butt," Harry laughed. "We're going to Galveston, remember?"

"Doesn't mean you need to wake me up." I moved my arm around to try to slap him, but I missed him. Zayn and Harry laughed.

"You're just like Zayn, you know? You never wake up. But Zayn woke up today, why not you?"

"I said get your ass off of me, Harry! You're like twice my size."

"Watch your language, missy! We have a four-year-old in the room, and you can't talk to your older brother like that. You hear me? Or else you're grounded."

I smiled to myself; I had been adopted. I tried to move as much as I could. I threw him off of me, and sat up, rubbing my eyes. I glared at Harry. "First off, a dad and a brother are different. And second off, you don't ever wake me up."

Harry smiled and walked out of the room. I looked over at Zayn who was still laughing.

"Do they do this every morning?" I threw the sheets off of me and stood up. I redid my ponytail.

Zayn nodded. "Pretty much. If you don't wake up, you get punishment. Come on, let's eat."

There were only five chairs around the table, and eight of us. I walked up to Niall, who was already eating his breakfast, and motioned him to scoot over. He gave me a look, but gave in. Liam passed me a plate with two pancakes on it. I grabbed the syrup from the center and put some on.

"Someone's a bit grumpy today." Niall said as he stood up to get a glass of orange juice.

"Well, I'm sorry that there were people screaming today and jumping on me." I took out a bite from my pancake and glared at Harry.

Harry tried so hard not to laugh, but lost against his will. "It was priceless," he said in between laughs. I slapped him on the head.

"Hey, that's not nice."

I smiled  and continued eating.


"I'll pick you up at 6:30?" Paul asked Liam as he dropped us off in front of Moody Gardens. Liam nodded and closed the door behind him. I run up behind Harry and jump on his back.

"Ugh, Savannah."

"To the beach, Harry!" I pointed to the beach and he started walking. Harry kept whining the whole time, wanting to put me down. I didn't get off though; he needed some kind of revenge, right? The beach wasn't crowded at all, which was a surprise, even thought it was mid-November. It was a windy Sunday and people usually come here and walk around.

"We're at the beach now, can you get off?" Harry whined.

I shook my head. "Nope!"

I took the advantage of being on top of him; I ruffled his hair. He instantly stopped. "Don't you even dare," he warned me. "I'll throw you off my back."

"Oh you wouldn't."

"Oh yes I will." He continued walking, catching up with the boys. I jumped off his back, to Harry's relief, and took off my shoes. We walked around the beach for an hour or two, stopping here and there to take pictures. There were a few other people on the beach, but they didn’t go up to the boys- my brothers. I smiled thinking of the thought. I looked at the eight of us. This was my new family.

"When are we going to eat? I'm hungry," Niall whined rubbing his stomach. Eleanor checked the time. "It's almost 1:15."

"1:15! Let's go eat! What are we waiting for?" Niall turned around and started walking back to Moody Gardens. We followed him and walked to a restaurant by the hotel.

We walked in the half-crowded restaurant, and Liam gave the waitress our reservations. The waitress, who looked like she was in her young twenties, guided us to the back of the restaurant, where no one could see us. She gave us the menus and took our drink orders.

"Do you think she's a fan?" Louis whispered to us as soon as she walked away. DJ gave him a weird look. "How do you know she likes you?"

"You see DJ, whenever you see many people, fans or not, you can tell if they're a fan or not by the way they look at you."

"Oh. So did you know that Savannah was a fan?"

Louis laughed. "She was wearing One Direction pajamas DJ, I think I can tell."

DJ continues coloring on her menu, and we wait for our drinks and to order. Harry got out his phone and leaned back against his seat.

"Watcha doing?" I look at his phone. "Instagram?" I asked him.

He nodded. He uploaded a picture of the beach, and captioned it 'beachstagram.'

"Really, Harry? Beachstagram?"


"You're special."

"Says the one who…" he paused to think. I waited for him to answer. He looked at me, thinking of something. I smiled, "you got nothing, do you?"

"Shut up, Savannah. This isn't over."


It was almost eight when we arrived back at the hotel. I was too lazy to change, so I sat on the couch and turned on the TV. Eleanor went to take DJ to bed, who fell asleep in the car. The boys went to their hotel room and changed. Louis came in our room and sat next to me. I started zoning out while watching TV.

"What are you thinking about?" Louis snapped me out of my thoughts.

I shrugged. "What are we going to do about school?"

Louis bit his lip thinking. "I actually didn't think about it. We could tutor you!"

"You really think that's going to work?" I imagined being tutor by them. Oh, how it was going to be interesting being tutored by them.

Louis laughed. "We could try."

"But when are you going to tell the public? Because I mean, 'One Direction adopts two sisters' is pretty big news."

Louis studied at me, thinking again. "We don't have to tell them now if you want. We'll let them figure it out on their own? They'll probably find out  by MSG."

Madison Square Garden. I totally forgot about that.

"When's that again?"

"December 3."

"You excited?"

He shrugged. "Nervous, too. But it's going to be awesome."

The door opened and the rest of the gang walked in, filling up the spaces on the couches. "What movie?" Niall asked as he took the remote from me. "See what's on the TV," Harry said. Niall flipped through the channels. Eleanor walked in and sat next to Louis.

"Is she asleep?" I asked her. She nodded.

The boys finally agreed on 'The Blind Side.' I zoned out most of the movie, thinking. They're my new brothers. Eleanor's going to be like a sister to me. They're my new family, and I couldn't be more happier about it.
