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.


8. Mum


 “Lia?” My mother asks as she steps in to the room, carrying an empty wicker basket that I made when I was fourteen.

“Hi Mum, this is Niall.” I say and Niall waves at her.

“It's nice to meet you,” He smiles, taking her hand and kissing it lightly.

“You're accent,” My mother strokes her dark hair behind her ear.

“I'm Irish.” He informs her, smiling again.

“Near the England country?” She asks, clearly impressed. Harry walks in, Iva not far behind.

“That's where I'm from,” He says and Iva wiggles her hands at him, signalling for him to pick her up. He lifts her up and rests her on his broad hips.

“This is Harry,” Jelly smiles proudly at my mother.

“Nice to meet you too,” Harry says, kissing my mothers hand too. She smiles and places the basket down on the floor.

“So what brings you to Rio?” She asks, looking at Niall; her dark eyebrows raised.

“We're actually here to record our album,” Harry beams and I look at Niall confused.

“Album?” I ask. I thought I could recall seeing those boxes with pictures printed on them in some of the shops in the city. Niall glares at Harry and he closes his mouth.

“Yeah...” He returns his eyes to me, rubbing the back of his neck with his hand.

“What for?” I continue, picking up the basket.

“Berries?” I ask my mother and she nods before heading out the door.

“We're in a band.” Niall says, playing with the strings on his guitar. I nod and frown as I still don't understand. I stand up, cradling the basket.

“I need to go and collect some food for tonight,” I tell Niall and Harry.

“I'll join you,” Niall suggests, placing his guitar down on the ground.

“You don't have to.” I reply but I want him to.

“I want to.” He smiles and Harry gives him a weird look.
