26. {Tragic Takings}

I unlocked my phone and pulled up the text. My heart sank at what it said.

Text From: Unknown Number

How badly do you want your friends to be safe? How far are you willing to go to keep them safe? Meet me at the Willow Tree at 2am. Tell nobody.

I sighed and rubbed my temples.

"What am I going to do?" I said to myself. I had to do it... I went to Niall and myself's room and changed into something more comfortable. I put sweatpants on and a t-shirt, along with a sweater over top. I put my hair up in a bun and headed out.

I was already half way there when I realized I forgot my phone...


*Niall's POV*

I woke up and looked at the clock to see the time. The clock read 1:42am. Where was Ella? I walked downstairs and couldn't find her anywhere. I went back up to the room, turned the lights on and noticed the room was a mess.

"Maybe she went for a walk." I said trying to convince myself. But who would go for a walk this late? I went around the room picking up her shorts that she wore today, as i picked them up her phone came tumbling out.

"Shit!" I cursed. I checked the phone over making sure no damage was done. I looked at her screen and noticed she had a text.

Luckily she told me her password, it was my birthday. I entered the password and the screen unlocked. I went to her messages and looked at her most recent text.

Where are you?


Where was she supposed to be at 2am!? I scrolled through the texts until I reached the top. A pit in my stomach began to grow when I read all the texts.

After I finished reading every message I ran into the hallway yelling. Telling everyone to get out of their rooms. Eventually everyone came out  rubbing their eyes. Once I told them what the texts on Ella's phone said their eyes widen.

"We have to find her!" Beth said in a panic.

"I know! It said to be in the park by 2, and it is 2 right now! We have to go!" I said.

"Hurry!" Louis said as everyone ran to put on shoes and coats.


*At the park*

*Ella's POV*

I walked until I went to the familiar spot I used to always go. I spotted a black silhouette of someone standing under the tree. I wanted to run away but I knew I couldn't if I wanted to keep everyone safe. I kept walking until I was about 6 feet away from the person. Just then I saw movement behind the tree. Another body moved out from behind the tree causing my heart to beat a lot faster.

"Hello Ella." The second body said. I groaned.

"Harley, what do you want from me!?" I pleaded.

"That is no way to greet your father." He said smirking.

"You were the worst father in history!" I said raising my voice.

"What about me?" The first person said, walking towards me as I took a step back keeping my distance.

"Andy? How could you do this to me? With him?!" I explained pointing a finger towards Harley.

"You should have never left me Ella." He said shaking his head.

"I always liked this boy." Harley said draping his arm around Andy. "Not the Irish boy." He added.

"We're going to go away, you friends will forget you, everything about you, they wont even remember your name. And Irish boy, well he will just have to find someone new to love." Andy said. "Your're mine now."

With that I started to run but they both grabbed my arms. I went to open my mouth to scream but my mouth was quickly covered up with a hand. I tried kicking, and pushing to try and get free but it was no use. My small frame against two large ones. I started giving up becoming weaker and weaker. They started to pick me up by the feet and torso. As the two started slowing down I noticed we were heading for a car. As they were about to put me in the car I heard my favourite voices.

"Ella?!" They yelled.

I bit Andy's hand that was covering my mouth and when he lifted his hand to see the damage my teeth has caused I used the opportunity to scream.

"OVER HERE!" Was all I could get out before my mouth was quickly covered again. I was roughly thrown in the back seat of the car, my seat belt getting put on by Andy. I looked out the window to see figures running back towards their cars. 'Please hurry.' I kept repeating in my head.

"Your friends are going to make this situation a lot harder. This was supposed to be a secret. You will pay for this mistake." Harley snarled from the front seat.

I hope to God that someone will save me.

I closed my eyes listening to the car rumbling down the dark London road. All of a sudden my vision went blurry and the sound of crashing cars filled my ears.


"Ah!" I yelled as my head hit the seat in front of me.

"What the hell?!" Andy yelled.

I looked over to the front seat to see blood flowing out of the side of Harley's face.

"Harley!| Andy said reaching over in pain grabbing Harley shoulders and shaking him. He didn't respond. I closed my eyes to try and stop my head from spinning but it was no use. I looked out the cracked window to see a small beige car with a woman and man in the front seat. They moved slightly and from what I could see, there was no serious damage thanks to their seat belts.

I moved my hand and felt all the way down to my seat belt. I pushed down and the pressure on my chest was released slowly. I pulled on the door handle and slowly got out. I sat down on the sidewalk looking at the two smoking cars in front of me. I went to reach for my phone but then remembered once again that I left it at home.

"Shit" I said putting my head in my hands.

"Ella!" I heard an Irish voice yell out, but my body was in so much pain that I couldn't get any more energy to look up. I could feel the presence of many people around me within a minute.

"Ella! Are you okay?" Beth exclaimed. I nodded still not looking up.

"The police are on their way." Liam said as I the heard the familiar sound of his phone locking.

I finally lifted my head to come face to face with a very worried looking Niall. Sitting down in front of me. He looked me in the eyes and lightly kissed me. We were interrupted by the sounds of engines and sirens piercing through the air. The paramedics rushed over to the car Andy and Harley were located in, then some rushed over to the other car. 

"We have someone who needs serious help!" One of the paramedics yelled. 

They pulled the numb body of Harley out of the car. I straightened up looking to what they were saying but it was obvious what the car crash had caused. He had pieces of glass sticking out of various parts of his body. I covered my mouth with my hand at the sight.

Niall stood up blocking my view from Andy who was hurt as well and the other two people from the car. I looked up at him and he offered me a hand. I tried lifting up my hand but I was still quit exhausted. Niall simply bent down wrapped an arm around my back and below my knees picking my up bridal style. 

"Excuse me... But we need to ask you a few questions Miss." A police officer said, I nodded and Niall put me down after I told him I was okay to walk for a bit.

He asked me questions about Harley, what happened, do I have any damage, etc. I was also checked out by a paramedic to see if I was harmed, either than a couple of scrapes and bruises I was alright.

"That should be all Miss McLander. If we have any further questions, we will contact you." He said nodding and hoping in his car. I turned about to see my best friends waiting for me.

"I want to see him." I said quietly to them.

"But Ella-" Niall started.

"I don't care. I want to go see him." I said. They nodded and we all hopped into our cars driving to the hospital.


"Ella! Are you sure you want to do this?" She asked, and I nodded.

"Alright, let's go." Harry said opening the doors. Just then Alyssa and Danielle came running in behind us engulfing me in a hug.

"Thank goodness your okay!" Alyssa exclaimed looking me over for any damage.

I chuckled. "I'm fine. My head just hurts a little."

"Let's go see him then, yeah?" Liam said heading towards the ER doors.

"McLander." I said to the lady at the front desk.

"What is the relationship." She asked.

I hesitated.

"He's...He is my father." I said looking down at my shoes.

"Room 317." She said nodding towards the doors we were supposed to walk through.

"Thank you."

We walked in silence... 315... 316... 317.

I looked at the silver handle and turning it, pushing it slowly revealing three hospital beds beside one another.

"You must be Miss. McLander?" I heard a voice say behind me. I turned around to see a tall male in a white coat, obviously the doctor.

"That's me." I said walking forward.

"May I speak with you alone?" He said. I nodded as we both walked out into the hallway.


*Niall's POV* 

"May I speak with you alone?" The doctor said to Ella. She nodded and they both exited the room.

I sighed. Everyone stayed quiet, not really knowing what to say. About 10 minutes later, Ella walked back in, her eyes slightly watering, biting her lip.

"Ella, what is it?" I asked.

She shook her head. 

"He was the only blood relative I had left." She said, then I realized what she was saying.

"Wait, Ella-" Beth said stepping towards her.

Ella shook her head and looked down. I saw a small tear flow over her cheek.

"He never made it off the operating table."
