8. She's Back!

Savannah's POV

The boys were leaving in in two days, so I decided to gather my things together. I guess I was staying with Kylee's family, I'm not sure. I haven't gotten the chance to ask them yet. I grab all the clothes I got with Eleanor, and I piled them all together.

"Hey."

I turn around to see Niall in the doorway.

"Hey Niall." I smile.

"What are you doing?"

I shrugged. "Packing. Y'all are leaving in two days so I'm putting my stuff altogether."

"Oh. I was overhearing Louis and El-"

"Savannah!" Louis calls me from another room.

"I guess you could see what they want." Niall laughs. We walk to where Louis and Eleanor were sitting. I sat down in a chair across from them.

Eleanor starts to speak. "Savannah, I was thinking, since I don't have to go back to the U.K., that I could stay with you, till everything gets settled out for sure."

I look up. "No Eleanor, it's okay! I can stay with Kylee's family. Y'all have done so much it's okay, really."

"Savannah, I know deep, deep inside you want Eleanor to stay." Louis smirks. "Trust me Savannah, I can tell."

"But Lou-"

"Hey!" he shuts me up.

"Louis, seriously."

"Too late!"

I slump back in my chair. How am I ever supposed to repay these guys?

 

"Bye Savannah! I'm gonna miss you!" Zayn hugs me tight.

"Bye Zayn! I'm going to miss you too!" Eleanor and I are dropping the boys and Paul at the airport. As much as I tell them that Eleanor can go back with them, they deny it. Whatever.

"Hey Savannah," Liam walks up to me. "When something happens, call us, okay?"

I nod. "I will, Liam."

"Promise?" he holds out his pinky finger. I seal the promise.

"Promise."

It's been almost three weeks since the boys have gone back to the U.K. Eleanor and I moved into a smaller hotel room, since it's just us two now. I haven't gone to school yet, but Kylee and Mary have been helping me with my homework. My leg's been getting better. I got rid of the crutches a few weeks ago, and soon, I get rid of the cast, but I'll have to put on the boot for another few weeks. Everyday, Eleanor and I go to the hospital, and we stay in Josh's room, at least for six hours. I want to be there when he wakes up. Sometimes, Eleanor leaves me alone with him. I try to talk to him, to see if he can wake up, but each time, it never works. The police are still on the search for DJ. It scares me each night that the next day they'll find her dead. I mean, that’s the news I'm expecting. Yet, I still pray that she's not dead yet. I haven't spoken with the lawyer since before the funeral, because I made him promise to wait to settle some stuff till Josh wakes up.

 

'Hey I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me maybe!'

I turn over and shut off my alarm. I get out of bed and walk to the kitchen. Eleanor must still be sleeping, so I make myself a bowl of cereal, trying to be ask quiet as I can. It was a Wednesday, and a school day, so I checked the time before I texted Kylee and Mary. 7:22. It's still early! Before I could text them, I got a text from somebody else.

'Good morning Savannah! How are you?"

I blushed and gave a small smile. Sam texted me. We've texted each other before, but stopped for a little while.

'Hey Sam! I'm doing good right now, thanks for asking! :) wbu?'

'that's good!:) I'm a little tired, we have a biology test today so… ya know'

'ahhh! Good luck!'

'thanks! I'm gonna need it! how's everything going?'

'I guess better. They're still looking for DJ, and Josh still hasn't woken up yet, but the doctor thinks he's gonna wake up soon. We'll see'

'we're praying for you, just so you know!'

That brought a smile to my face. 'thank you so much!'

'g2g now, I'm at school :P ill talk to you after, bye!'

'bye! Good luck in bio!'

I put my phone down on the table and looked at my bowl of cereal, now all soggy. Great, I'll now have to eat soggy cereal. Gross.

"So, who were you texting?"

I look up and see Eleanor walking in, with the smirkiest face I've ever seen.

"What do you mean?"

"Oh, come on Savannah, I'm not stupid! I know you were texting someone, I'm guessing a boy, with the biggest smile on your face."

"It was that noticeable?" my face got a little red.

She nodded proudly. "Yeah! Come on, tell me, what's his name?

"Sam." I looked down, a little embarrassed.

"Was it the boy who talked to you at the cemetery?"

I nodded. "Yeah, it was him."

"He's a cutie." El smirked.

I laughed. "Yeah, I know he is."

Our conversation was interrupted by El's laptop with the Skype calling.

"It's probably Louis. Come on, let's go talk to him."

I grabbed my bowl of soggy cereal and followed Eleanor to the couch where her laptop was. El clicked the accept button, and soon enough, Louis, Niall, and Zayn's faces were on the screen.

"Hey Eleanor!" Louis smiled when he saw his girlfriend.

"Hey Louis!" Eleanor waved to the camera.

"Hi Savannahhhh!" Niall looked up from his phone.

"Hi Niall!"

"Watcha eating?"

"Soggy cereal." I make a disgusted face.

"Guess what!" Eleanor interrupts Zayn, who looked like he was going to say something.

"What?" Zayn asks.

I glare at Eleanor, half-knowing what she is going to say. She ignores me. "Wellll… today, I was wa-"

"Eleanor!"

"Yes, Savannah?" she looks at me.

"Don't."

"Don't what?" Niall asks us from the other end of the call.

"Savannah was blushing and smiling when she was texting Sam." Eleanor spits it all out.

I glare at her. "I hate you."

Eleanor smiles. "Um, I think you love me."

I lean against the couch and put my head in my hands.

"You gotta boyfriend!" Louis squeals.

"NO!" I lean against the camera. "I don't gotta boyfriend."

"But El-"

"Zayn, I didn't say that she had a boyfriend."

"Oh. But-"

"She's just gotta little crush." she smiled.

I looked in my empty bowl of cereal on my lap and heard 'Ooohs' from all three boys. I could feel my face getting redder and redder.

 

 

We walked in the hospital thinking that it was just another normal day: Josh won't wake up and DJ is still on the search. We went up the elevator and walked to Josh's room at the end of the hallway. I slowly opened the door. Josh's body has been recovering little by little. The scars are disappearing slowly, but at least he looks better than a few weeks ago. I go sit in my usual chair and I open my geometry book. After an attempt to do a few problems, I close the book and put it on the table. I make myself more comfortable and grab my phone. I don't know what to do so I just plug in my headphones and listen to some music. I grab I Am Number Four from the table and reread it for the millionth time.

"Hey Savannah," I look at Eleanor.

"Yeah?"

"How about we go eat some place today for lunch instead of eating here? My treat!" she smiled.

I smile and nod. "That will be great. Thank you."

"We leave in fifteen minutes?"

I nod.

We decided to go to Olive Garden, one of my favorites. We got in, and it was almost empty. It was the middle of the week, so I didn’t expect anyone to be there. We then walked to a shopping center nearby and window shopped. It reminded me just like what Alyssa and I would do many times. After a couple of hours, we got back to the hospital.

"Thank you Eleanor." I told her as we walked in the elevator.

"Your welcome, Savannah." she smiled.

"No, not just for that. For also staying with me. You're just like a second Alyssa to me."

I could see her tear up a bit.

"I'm glad to be one." she hugged me.

The elevator finally dinged and the doors opened. We turned right and walked to Josh's room. I was about to open the door when I heard the voice I didn't expect to ever hear again. I immediately turned around.

"Savannah!"

I turn around to see my little four year old sister running across the hallway towards me.

"DJ!" I drop my phone and run to hug her. She ran to me and I started crying.

"Why are you crying?" DJ pulls away and looks at me.

"You're here. DJ, you're not dead. I thought you died and…"

"But I'm not dead!" she happily cheered. I smiled and wiped my tears. "Yeah, you're still here."

I hugged her again. My little sister was safe.

"What happened?"

She shrugged. "I don't know. these guys took me and put me in a dark room. It was scary."

"Did they hurt you?"

She shook her head. "No."

"Thank goodness."

"Where's Mommy?" she looked at me with her innocent eyes. I took a big breathe and started crying again.

"Mommy, she-"

"She died?" DJ started crying.

I nodded. "Daddy and Alyssa too."

"Why?"

"I don't know DJ, I don't know why."

"Who's she?" she pointed behind me. I turn around to see where she was pointing too.

"Oh, that's Eleanor." I picked her up and walked to Eleanor. When we got closer, DJ's mouth was shaped into an 'O.'

"She knows One Direction!"

Eleanor laughed. "You must be DJ!"

DJ smiled. "Yeah, I am! You know One Direction! Savannah! She knows them!"

I've taught DJ well… haha.

I nod. "Yeah, she does!"

"Have you met them?"

I nod and she formed her mouth into an 'O' again and covered it with her hands.

Eleanor laughed. "You're too cute DJ."

"Yeah," I agreed. "She is."

"Where's Josh? Did he die too?" DJ looks at me, hoping for a good answer. I opened my mouth to speak, but before I could, a nurse walking out of Josh's hospital room called me. I look at her, and she had a small smile on her face.
"Savannah, someone wants to see you."
