14. Rumors


   I wake up to the sound of my phone. I look at it to see Liam's calling me. I answer it.
   "Hello?" I say sleepily.
   "Harry were you sleeping?" He asks.
   "Yes I was until you woke me."
   "Sorry, but it's 3rd period and you're not at school. You usually never miss school. What's going on?" He asks being his usual concerned self.
   "What are you talking about? Today is Sunday how could we have school?"
   "No, today is Monday. Are you okay?"
   I don't answer him for a while. Is today really Monday? I look at my phone and sure enough it's Monday and its 10:15AM!
   "Wow I didn't even realize it. Sorry man I've been... Busy and I'm exhausted." I say.
   "Ok well I'll see you later then."
   "Alright bye." I hang up the phone.
   I look around. Did I sleep at Elena's house last night? I sit up on the couch and it all comes back to me.
   "Why?" I ask myself and sigh. Elena can't be gone. No, there's no way. I'm going to get her back.
   I hear footsteps and look to see Tracy walking down the stairs.
   "Good morning Harry." She says to me then stops and looks at me,
   "Shouldn't you be at school?" She asks.
   "I guess I've slept in. I'm extremely exhausted." I say and she nods.
   "Yeah, I know how you feel. I am too. You should probably call your mother and let her know where you are. Are you planning on going to school?" She asks.
   "I don't think so."
   "Well when you call your mother tell her that I said you can rest here until you're better cause you don't look good enough to drive and I don't think I am either, I'm not emotionally stable yet." I nod my head and grab my phone and dial mum's number.
   "Hello, Harry?" She answers.
   "Hey mum."
   "Where are you, I've been worried sick?"
   "Well, I've fallen asleep at Elena's house last night and I just woke up a little while ago. I'm extremely exhausted from all of the events that happened yesterday and I don't look so good either."
   "Who's Elena? What happened yesterday?" Mum asks.
   "Elena is my girlfriend." I say and when I say that I see Tracy whip her head in my direction and smile.
   "What happened to Abi?" Mum asks.
   "Things weren't working out between us.."
   "Okay honey, so what happened yesterday?" She asks again and I fill her in on everything.
   "Oh my. I'll contact the school and tell them you won't be attending today. I'd like you to come home tonight though and if you're well enough you may return to school tomorrow. Much appreciation and hope towards Elena's mother. I hope they find her. Poor girl. Get some rest dear, I'll see you later, I love you." She says.
   "I love you too mum." I say and we hang up.
   I lay back on the couch and shut my eyes.
   "Harry." I hear Tracy say and I open my eyes to look at her.
   "Are you hungry?" She asks.
   "No, but thank you. I just want to rest." I say and give her a slight smile.
   "Come with me." She says and I get up and follow her. She takes me upstairs and we come to a green room.
   "This is Elena's room, you can rest in here." She says and smiles then heads back downstairs. This is her room. I walk in and crawl into her bed. I slowly drift off to sleep.


   I wake up feeling very cold. I start to cry. I thought coming here would help me forget my past... But instead it's coming back.
   I slowly sit up feeling very sore and I look for my clothes. I find them and get up to put them on. As I do, I notice the bruises he left on me.
   I slowly walk over to the little bed in the corner and lay down. My muscles ache from sleeping on the ground, but I was too sore to even move last night so I had no choice.
   I quietly cry myself to sleep.

*Later on...*

   I felt a little shove on my shoulder and slowly opened my eyes.
   "Hey." Someone says and I quickly sit up and back against the wall with my heart beating fast.
   "It's okay, I'm not going to hurt you." He says.
   "What do you want?" I ask, my voice shaky.
   "I thought you might like to take a shower, you know, get cleaned up..." He says looking at me.
   I sit there, trying to figure out if this is a trick or something. After I don't respond for a while I think he figures I'm scared, which I am. I'm completely terrified of anything that can happen with every decision I make.
   "Don't worry. The others are at school, it's just me and I won't do anything to you." He says reassuringly. I gasp,
   "School!" I say and stand up too fast that I have to sit back down because of how much I ache.
   "Yeah, it's gonna be a while till you go back to school." He says.
   "What do you mean?" I ask getting scared.
   "You're not leaving until they decide to let you go. From what Jay was saying about you last night... You're gonna be here a while." He explains.
  "No, you have to let me go. I need to leave, I can't do this! No. No, no, no! I NEED to be let go! Please!" I say crying and feeling a pain in my stomach.
   "Look, I don't like what they're doing as much as you do, but we both have to follow rules." He says,
   "They have stuff against me that I can't afford to let be exposed. If I let you go, I'm dead." He says.
   I look at him and see the sorrow in his eyes. I start to feel guilty, I'm not sure why.
   "Would you like that shower?" He asks breaking the silence and I nod. He helps me up and I almost fall but he catches me.
   "May I? To make it easier." He says asking for permission to carry me and I nod. He picks me up and walks out of the door to the room I'm sure I'll become very accustomed to.
   I notice as he's walking that this is just a regular house, not some building in the middle of the woods or something. Just a house in a regular neighborhood. Just my luck, that will make it even harder for anyone to find me.
   We reach what I assume is the bathroom and he opens the door. He sets me back on my feet,
   "I'll be right back." He says and walks out of the bathroom.
   I instantly get thoughts of escaping. I look out the bathroom door and he is nowhere in sight. Slowly I make my way out of the bathroom and head towards an open door that I can see leads outside.
   I reach the door and start to open the screen door when I hear him yell. I open the screen door and once I'm down the front steps I start running, putting aside the pain with thoughts of being free.
   I hear him yell again and take a chance of looking back to see that he isn't very far behind. I gather all of my strength and force myself to run as fast as I can as if I were an Olympic track star!
   I take a bunch of turns down streets to try and lose him and slowly his voice starts to fade. I look back and see he is gone, but I don't stop running. I continue, looking for familiar places... I don't recognize any though.
   I see a park up ahead and go to it. I start to walk instead of run and almost at once the pain hits me. I look around the park and see a slide. I go over to it and lay down. Only then I realize how cold it is, but the thought of going home warms me and I fall asleep in the slide.


   I slowly open my eye lids. Looking around I realize the room is darker than when I went to sleep. I pick up my phone and look at the time. 8:27pm. Holy shit, I can't believe I slept that long!
   I look at my phone again and realize I've got missed calls and text messages. I quickly check them.
   Most of them are from Mum asking where I'm at and I quickly text back a response. The others though, are from the boys...
Louis: Dude what the hell!!!!
Niall: Really bad news going around..
Zayn: Man, please tell me this stuff isn't true.
Liam: Call me NOW!
   What's going on? I quickly dial Liam's number and put the phone up to my ear and wait for him to answer.
   He answers after the first ring.
   "Harold Edward Styles you better tell me what's going on right now!" He yells, I'm so confused.
   "What are you talking about?"
   "What am I talking about? Well I'm talking about the fact that people are saying you raped Elena and hid her somewhere so you're trying to hide thats why you didn't come to school and Abi is going around school saying how much in love you two are... You told us you two broke up... Start explaining now!"
   "WHAT! No, no, no. I did not rape Elena and hide her somewhere, I would never do that! What the hell is Abi talking about, she's the one that broke up with me in the first place." I say.
   "Well if you didn't do anything to Elena then where is she and why are the police taking kids out of class to talk to them?" He asks.
   "You don't believe me do you?! I swear to you, I did nothing to her. If you want to know what happened then I'll tell you if that will make you satisfied! Me and Elena were on a date when a gang started a fight with me and kidnapped Elena! The police have been trying to find her and I told them some names of people who may be suspects. I stayed home from school because I've been so exhausted from helping the police and I still look like shit from the fight. Li, you've got to believe me." I say and there is a long silence...
   I hear him take a deep breath then he speaks,
   "Okay, I believe you, but explain Abi." He says.
   "I don't know how to explain what she's doing, I haven't talked to her since we broke up!"
   "Well you may want to talk to her soon before things get out of hand." Liam suggests.
   "Okay, I'm just trying to get things figured out. I've got guilt and worry building inside me. I should have just left with Elena instead of start a fight. Now, only god knows where she is. For all we know she could be dead! Liam, if she dies, I don't know what I'll do!" I say, my voice shaking.
   "Harry, calm down and just relax, it may be hard but at least try. Think positive and it will help you get through this. Tomorrow though, you should sort things out with Abi." He says.
   "Okay. Thanks man, I'll see you tomorrow."
   I hang up and get out of Elena's bed and head down the stairs. Tracy is on the couch reading a book and she looks up at me.
   "Did you sleep well?" She asks.
   "Yes, I did thank you, for everything. I must go home now though, my mum is worrying too much."
   Tracy nods and smiles,
   "Ok. See ya later on sweetheart."
   With that I wave and walk out the front door to my car.

*20 minutes later...*

   "Mum I'm home." I yell once I walk through the door and she comes running towards me from the kitchen.
   "Oh, I've been so worried!" She says embracing me in a hug.
   "Well I'm home now so there's no need to worry anymore." I assure her.
   "That's not just what I'm worried about. An officer called today asking for you... He said it didn't have to do with Elena..." She said and my heart beat rapidly.
