Rescue Me

Lia has lived in the slums of Rio, Brazil all her life and when Lia steals from a shop one night, two boys chase her and pin her to the ground. But what Lia doesn't realise is that this one Irish boy with kind blue eyes will be the one to show her new things and teach her about the world. Maybe even teach her about love.


15. Doctor


Note; Sorry this is another short chapter guys but the next one will be exciting, I promise X

I don't call out to him, I just watch as he rushes back up to my home. I stand there and wait. A few minutes later, he reappears with a body slumped over his back.



“Niall!” I shout out but he can't hear me. I run towards them, gripping the basket tightly.

“Niall!” I call again, slamming straight in to Louis.

“Are you alright, Lia?” He asks, concerned.

“I'm fine, where's he taking her?” My words spill over eachother in my rush to get them out.

“He said something about a doctor in the apartment,” Louis explains as Iva comes running out of the house.

“Where is Niall taking mummy?” She asks, looking down the hill where I follow her gaze. I watch as he reaches the bottom and he gently pulls her small body on to his front; cradling her like a child.

“Come on,” I say and Louis and Iva follow me as I rush down the hill after him.


We don't catch up with him until we reach the tower block they're staying in. People shoot looks at Niall and then us, spotting the state that me and my sister are in. Louis picks her up and rests her on his hip, jumping in the lift straight after Niall.

“What are you doing?” I exclaim at Niall, causing my mother to stir in his arms.

“Look at her, Lia. She can't even stand up. She needs a doctor.” He looks at me, his eyes intense and I nod. I bite my lip and wait for the doors to open again. We rush inside the apartment, the sight still taking me aback. Niall lays my mother down on the white sofa, her dress hanging off the side. A man rushes in, a strange device around his neck, carrying a briefcase. He bends down beside my mother and I watch as he prods and pokes her limp body.

“Get her some water,” He demands and Louis rushes in to the kitchen. He returns with a glass of water, handing it to the doctor. I tilt my mother's head up, allowing the liquid to travel down her throat. He then places his fingers over her wrist and I wonder what for. Lets put it this way; I was never going to become a doctor. The next few hours speed by in a blur. I flop onto the plush sofa, my muscles aching after my mother is safe in bed with my sister. The doctor leaves and Zayn jumps to pay him. I hate that he does but then I think of my frail mother and I keep my mouth shut.

“Thank you,” I tell Zayn and he smiles warmly.

“Anytime and anything,” He murmurs, planting a kiss on my head. He disappears in to his room and seconds later I hear the shower being turned on.

“Thank god,” Niall sighs, falling down beside me.

“Thank you, Niall.” I tell him and he shakes his head, closing his eyes.

“You don't need to thank me, Lia.” He says and I shake my own head.

“But I do, you do so much for me and you don't even...” I trail off but he places a finger to my lip; silencing me.
