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.

**Lia's POV**


After everyone has settled down for the night, I climb under the covers and close my eyes. After several hours of trying to sleep, I finally decide that I can't. Sighing softly, I step out of bed and pull on my woolly socks. We were here in Paris for another two days, due to leave the morning after my birthday. I pad across the dark room, past a sleeping Iva and Aaliyah and head to Niall's room. I open the door and slip inside, my eyes adjusting to the darkness. 

"Niall?" I whisper, entering the bedroom.

"Lia?" he answers, his voice groggy with sleep.

"Hey," I whisper again, creeping over to the bed. I clamber in and slip down beside him. He wraps an arm around me and I lay my head on his chest; listening to his heart beneath my ear.

"You okay?" He asks and I nod.

"I couldn't sleep, I had a lot on my mind." I tell him and he sighs.

"Yeah, me too." 

Me and Brooke had eventually convinced Belle to tell Louis what the manager had done to her after he was taken away by police. We had all given statements and he was being held over-night. Belle had told the police what he had done to her and they had taken it in to account. Belle looked obviously relieved as the police took the man away in hand-cuffs. I was happy for her, she was extremely fragile. Louis had told the rest of the boys what had happened between Belle and the man as she couldn't bring herself to say it again. I felt so bad for her; she had been through a lot.

"I'm glad Lou found her when she did," Niall says and I nod.

"So am I, goodness knows what he would have done to her." I shudder at the thought.

"I love you, Princess." Niall says, kissing my cheek. I grin and run my fingers along his chest.

"I love you too," I whisper before we both fall in to a deep sleep.


It's my birthday and I'm woken up by Brooke and Iva jumping on the bed.

"Lia! Lia! Get up!" Iva screams and I groan, rolling over.

"It's your birthday!" Brooke sings and I stifle a laugh.

"Come on!" She sings again, dragging me out of bed.

"B!" I moan as she leads me by the hand towards Niall's room.

"Okay, close your eyes!" Brooke says, placing her hands over my eyes. 

"I can't see," I tell her, smiling.

"Okay, ready! One, two, three!" She pushes me in to the room and takes her hands away. I open my eyes to an empty room.

"Guys?" I ask. I'm answered by silence so I scan the room. On the coffee table sits a large brown envelope. I narrow my eyes, looking behind me. I bend down and slowly pick the envelope up. I slip my finger underneath the seal and pull it open. I pull out the piece of paper and begin to unfold it. Printed on to the paper is a picture.

A picture of a beautiful brown and white paint horse with a long flowing mane and tail. 

I frown at the picture, the words 'MELODY' printed at the top. 

"Melody?" I question out loud.

"Surprise!" Niall appears from behind the sofa and I drop the paper in shock.

"Niall! Don't do that to me," I laugh as I pick up the paper again.

"What's this?" I ask, turning the paper round for him to see.

"She," He says, smiling.

"Is your new horse."
