9. Telling The Boys


Gloria’s POV


Seeing Harry there with the rest of the boys just made me lose it. I ran out of the room before they could say anything and before Harry could ask me the questions I’m now trying to avoid. Running down the hallway I could hear footsteps behind me, which only made me run faster. I made my way outside of the school and towards the auditorium. The bell went and there was now people making there way to their next class, I kept hearing gasps behind me so I assumed that they had noticed Harry running after me. Just before I could reach the auditorium two firm hands spun me around. There I was eye to eye with Harry and a bunch of people staring on at the scene.

“Finally I found you.” Harry said and pulled me into a hug. I didn’t know what to do I just was standing there limp with him hugging me.

“Harry. Please leave. You shouldn’t have come looking for me.” I managed to say as he was squeezing tighter.

“No, I’m not letting you run away from me again.” He said and took a step back. At this point just about everyone had their phones out either taking photos or a video of this and there were girls giggling and whispering to each other.

“You have to go. Please. It’s too hard to explain.” I said turning away.

“No Rebecca. Explain to me why you ran away from me. Explain to me what’s going on!” He said in a loud tone.

“Just don’t call me Rebecca.” I said trying to get out of his grasp.

“Why not? That is you name.” He said looking confused and tightening his grip. It was pointless trying to get out.

“It is and it isn’t.”

“Come on lets go sit down over there and you can explain everything to me. You can explain to me why you left me there like an idiot and why the school doesn’t have any record of a Rebecca in your year when you clearly go here.” He said ushering me over to a wooden bench.

I stayed silent not knowing what to say to get him to go away without me having to explain it all.

“Look Rebecca. I’m not leaving until you give me the reason why you just left.  I haven’t been able to get you out of my mind.” He said. Now that shocked me I was certain he would just give up and move on.

“I wish you hadn’t.”

“Wish I hadn’t what?” He asked looking into my eyes. Right then I gave in to my heart, I had to tell him the truth just not here.

“I just wish you hadn’t come looking for me. Look can we go some where more private so I can explain.” I said looking around at the people still starring at us.

“Of course. Do you have another class at all?” He asked standing up and putting his hand out for me to grab. I took his hand and stood up shaking my head. I never had any classes after singing.

“Great well how about I drive you home.” He offered. Then I remembered I had Dave picking me up.

“Uh let me just uh text someone first.” I said grabbing my phone and punching away at the keys.


I sent Dave:

“Don’t bother picking me up Georgia will drop me off at home. I’m just overreacting with the whole Alex issue. I’ll be fine besides Craig will be with us.”


“Alright you can take me home. But don’t try anything alright you just have to sit and listen.” I said as we began to walk towards a black SUV.

“What about the other guys?” I asked.

“Uh maybe the could come with us? I could drop them off first then you can explain to me.” He suggested.

“I can explain it to them too. I can trust them right?” I asked.

“Of course these boys can keep anything a secret.” He assured me.

We had reached the SUV and Harry sent a text to have the boy’s meet us back here. About two minutes later the boys appeared with Georgia right behind them.

“Hey Georgia. Harry’s going to give me a lift home if that’s alright.” I said giving her a hug.

“Yeah of course. I’m going over Craig’s house. But be careful.” She replied and then walked off.

The boys hoped in the car without a single word.

“Uh so… I’m going to explain to all five of you about the whole thing but you have to promise me you wont tell a single soul. Not even Georgia knows about this and I’ve been friends with her since year 4!” I said as I joined them in the car. They all just mumbled ‘of course’ as Liam began the car.


Harry’s POV


We were in the car with Liam driving; I had sent the driver home saying we didn’t need him for the rest of the day.

“My name’s not Rebecca.” She stated facing the ground.

“Wait what? What do you mean?” I asked her. That just got a hell of a lot confusing. Why would she say her name is Rebecca? Especially since when she said it yesterday there was no hesitation what so ever.

“Well it used to be my name, back when I lived in the UK.” She continued.

“So that’s why I thought you had a tad British accent.” Louis said proudly.

“Uh yeah well. The thing is that when I turned 7 my parents got a divorce. It wasn’t too bad except when my father began drinking when I was 8. He would come home on a Friday night before my mother would drop me off. He would act sober in front of her but as soon as she left he took his anger for my mother out on me. He threatened that if I told my mother about this he would kill me…” She stopped and wiped away a few tears that had escaped. I couldn’t handle seeing her like that so I just pulled her into a hug and rubbed my hand in circles on her back.

“At Christmas time during 2003 I gained the courage to tell my mother believing that she would be able to protect me from my horrid father. When I told her she couldn’t well wouldn’t believe what I said, saying that I was just making up stories like all little girls do. I didn’t know what to do. So that Friday when she dropped me off she told him about my little “stories”. Once she left my father he…” She continued but then stopped and looked up at everyone’s faces. We were all in shock and everyone had a few tears forming. I didn’t want to think of what her father did to her.

“Well he… He grabbed some duct tape and tied my arms and legs together. I was too weak to even fight back and I was then taken to this old shack that was falling apart. I was apparently there for 38 days. The day I escaped he had been drinking and forgot to lock the shacks door. Once I couldn’t hear his car anymore I ran as fast as I could through a field trying to look for a way out or a road-“ She said but was cut off by Louis.

“Wait… What was your last name when you lived in the UK?” Louis asked. Why would that even matter? I thought.

“Uh it was Miles.”

“MILES!” Louis yelled which shocked everyone.

“What Louis?” Niall asked curious as to why he was so ecstatic over her response.

“I remember when I was like 10 there was a missing girl by the name of Rebecca Miles. She was all over the news in December and January, everyone was out looking for her including my Uncle who was a police officer then.” Louis said. I don’t even remember that.

“Oh I thought everyone had forgotten about the little girl that was missing for 38 days.” She said looking down at the floor.

“I couldn’t forget. My uncle was the one to find her, out on a road in the middle of nowhere while she was resisting her father.” Louis said. That was a shock to everyone especially Rebecca, wait what was her new name? What do I even call her?

“What?” She yelled quickly jumping out of my arms.

“My uncle was a part of the search and rescue team they began shortly after you went missing. Him and his partner were assigned to pretty much drive up and down the same main road that connected London to a small town about 35 kilometers out from the centre of London.” Louis said with a smile.

“That’s amazing.” Niall said.

“So what happened then?” I asked curious as to how she ended up moving to Australia and having a name change.

“Well my father ran away and was never captured. So for safety I was moved to Australia and had my name changed. It was confusing for me at first to have a completely different name at barely even 9 years old. I barely spoke to anyone when I first moved here and began school. This led to the school bully always picking on me and then that led me to meet Georgia when she helped me.” She explained. Well now it was all starting to make sense. But why would she tell me her name was Rebecca to begin with if she was trying to hide herself?

“So what’s your name now lovely?” Liam asked keeping his eyes on the road.

“Well it’s Gloria. Gloria Martin. I don’t like my name but it’s what keeps me safe.” She said.

“Well I love your name.” I exclaimed causing the boys to snicker and give me a knowing look.

“Thank you Harry. But guys not even Georgia knows any of this so please keep it to yourself!”

“Alright we promise.” Zayn spoke for the first time this entire ride. Although he seemed to be very mysterious and had that bad boy persona he was really a sweetheart.

“Zayn are you crying?” Louis asked looking over to Zayn. I looked at Zayn and noticed he had red puffy eyes and a bright red nose. He had been crying. I felt like crying too over Rebecca I mean Gloria’s story but I have to stay strong for her and just comfort her.

“Aw Zaynie.” Gloria said with a smile on her face.

“I’m sorry I just found it an upsetting story. So what’s happened to your father now then? Any idea where he is?” Zayn asked wiping away another tear.

“Uh well… My ‘protector’ Dave told me yesterday that they spotted my father arriving at Perth airport except he had escaped before anyone could grab him.” She explained.

“Whose this Dave guy?” Niall asked.

“Well I’m to call him dad in front of my friends or strangers but he was assigned to keep my mum and I safe. I’ve lived with him for 8 years and I kind of hate him.” She said and began laughing.

“What’s so funny?” I asked her turning to look at her now.

“Oh it’s just I’ve only known you guys a day and I’m already telling you this where as I’ve known Georgia for 8 years and haven’t told her anything.” She explained.


Gloria’s POV


I know I shouldn’t have told them but what else was I going to do? I couldn’t run away for long they knew where I went to school! For all I know they know where I live. Actually I haven’t even told them where I live but Liam is still driving. I looked out the window and noticed we were still quite close to the school yet we had been driving for a good 30 minutes.

“Uh Liam I forgot to tell you where I live didn’t I?” I asked.

“Yeah.” He said as he began to turn left.

“Well actually if you keep driving down this road and turn right when it ends then drive down that road until it ends and turn left my house is on the left.” I explained noticing we were actually 5 minutes from my house.

“Good job Liam.” Harry said and the boys all began laughing. I then noticed that Harry still had his arms around me and my right hand was entangled in his left hand. I felt safe in his arms and it made me forget about the fact that Alex was in this country.

“So what happens if your father comes to Sydney?” Harry asked with a concerned look on his face.

“I don’t know really. Actually could we stop calling him my father? Can he just be Alex?” I asked only now realizing how uncomfortable I am with him being known as my father.

“Of course babe.” Harry said pulling me closer to him. It felt so perfect to be in his arms, it reminded me of at the cinemas. Then I remembered the orange beanie he had given me was in my bag. I pulled out of his arms and grabbed my bag from the floor. He looked at me with confusion but when I took the beanie out his face relaxed.

“Here” I said passing it back to him.

“Keep it. It suites you better than it does me.” He said as he put it on my head. I couldn’t help but smile. I settled back into his arms and rested my head on his chest. Listening to his heartbeat was all I focused on and everything about Alex has disappeared from my mind.


A few minutes later the car stopped and I hoped out of the car only to be stopped by a hand grab hold of my wrist.

“Before you go could I at least have your number darling?” Harry asked so sweetly.

“Sure.” I grabbed out a pen and piece of paper from my bag then continued to scribble down my number. I handed him the piece of paper and his entire face brightened up.

“Hey guys do you have anything planned for the rest of the day?” I asked hoping for it to be a no.

“Uh no whys that?” Louis asked from behind Harry.

“Well I guess since I’ve told you about Alex maybe Dave should know that you all know. It wouldn’t be right to keep that from him. At least then he might be a bit more comfortable if I want to see any of you again.” I said directing the ‘any of you again’ at Harry. They didn’t say anything instead they all just got out of the car and shut the doors. We all made our way to the front door. As I was about to turn the doorknob I let out a sigh wondering what Dave will think? Just before I could I turned around to the boys and told them to wait right there. As I opened the door I made my way for the lounge room.


“Hey darling how was school?” My mum greeted me with a hug and kiss on the cheek.

“It was great actually. Uh Dave?” I said which grabbed his attention from the TV.

“What is it Gloria? Get home alright?” He asked.

“Uh actually. I know you’re going to be mad and everything but uh…” I began.

“What is it Gloria? Is everything alright?” He asked getting up off the couch and making his way over to me.

“It’s just I want you to meet some people.” I said as I moved back into the corridor. I motioned for the boys to walk in. As I turned my head back to Dave his face showed nothing but utter confusion. I walked back into the lounge room and soon followed by the boys. My mums mouth dropped open and Dave’s face was now completely in shock. I guess they didn’t see that one coming.

“Uh guys this is Dave and this is my mother Maureen. Dave, mum this is Harry, Louis, Niall, Liam and Zayn.” I said pointing to each one.

“Hi guys I’m Dave, Gloria’s father.” He said as he put his hand out for each to shake. The guys all mumbled a hello.

“Dave they know the truth.” I said bluntly.

“What do you mean darling?” He said turning to me, confused once again.

“Dave they know about Alex.” I said. With that his expression changed from confusion to sadness then anger and then just a blank look.

There was complete silence in the room, which was then broken by my mother, “So how did you meet the boys exactly?” she questioned.

“Well we met yesterday when I went to get the dress. On my way there I was a little rushed and then got a text from Dave. As I began to reply to it I crashed into Harry and was rendered unconscious for a few minutes.” I calmly explained. I looked to Harry for him to explain the rest.

“She rushed off without telling us who she was and well I went after her. Once I found her she said her name was Rebecca, I invited her and Georgia to lunch and then a movie. After the movie however her and Georgia went to the bathroom and well never came back.” He explained looking between Dave and I.

“Gloria could I speak to you and your mother in the kitchen?” He hesitantly asked. My mum and I both nodded and followed him to the kitchen. Before I walked through the door I turned around and motioned for the boys to take a seat.


“What were you thinking Gloria?” Dave asked looking frustrated.

“When I told him my name was Rebecca I just didn’t want him to know who I was alright. But after lunch and the movie I couldn’t help but fall for him! After we ditched him and the boys at the movies he found out which school I went to. I couldn’t control that but how was I going to explain why I ran?” I said hugging my mum.

“Well you didn’t have to tell them the truth!” He yelled which frightened me a bit. Dave had never raised his voice at me.

“It’s MY life! You can’t control whom I decide to tell! I trust them!” I yelled back.

“So you decide to tell boys you’ve known for a day rather than someone like Georgia whom you’ve known for 8 years!” He said but this time his voice was normal.

“I care about Harry! He would have found out sooner or later. Besides at least now I know who the police officers were that saved me.”

“What do you mean?” my mother asked pulling me away from her to look into my eyes.

“Louis remembered the news reporting on my disappearance and well he said it was his uncle and partner that found me along that road.” I explained now with tears brimming as I remember that day.

My mother pulled me closer trying to calm me down.

“Look Dave, I’m not so happy she told them either but I saw the way Harry looked at her. I doubt any of them especially Harry would do anything to hurt her or lead Alex to her.” She explained now stroking my hair as I sobbed.

“Alright I’ll let this one slide. Gloria is almost 17 and I’m not her father so I guess it’s her decision to decide whom she trusts. But if they do ANYTHING that could harm you they will be dealing with me. Not me your fake father but me the federal agent.” He explained with his harsh tone.

“Thank you so much Dave!” I said jumping up and bringing him into a hug. This has to be the only time I’ve ever hugged him.


We went back out to the lounge room to find the boys fiddling with their hands unsure of what’s going on or what will happen.

“Gloria darling why don’t you go show the boys your ball dress. I’m sure they would all love to see it.” My mum suggested.

“Mum you know I want it to be a surprise!” I complained.

“Yes well they wont be there tomorrow night so why not?” She asked.

I just sighed and made my way up the stairs.
