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.

Hi guys, thanks for all the lovely comments and likes:)

My friend actually wrote this chapter as i was interested to see how she would interpret Harry meeting Brooke. I thought it was really good so here you are:) enjoy X  

**Harry's P.O.V**


I watched Zayn come out of Niall's room, a smirk on his face.

“Who's in there?” I nod at the closed door.

“Brooke and Lia,” He replies, picking up a pair of shoes from the floor.

“Brooke?” I ask.

“Yeah. She's an american who's studying at a beauty college here. She was offering free make-overs as part of her training down at the market, so I asked her earlier this morning to help Lia get ready for dinner tonight.” He ties the laces with precision.


“Yeah, we're all going out. Everyone's ready,” Zayn said; nodding at the boys who were now gathered in the living room.

“Right,” I sigh and plonk down on the sofa beside Niall. I was already dressed so I didn't bother changing.

“Ready?” I hear Lia ask and the bedroom door creaks open. I look up to see her walking towards us with a girl beside her. Lia looked so pretty in her borrowed clothes. Her dark hair was in pretty waves down to her waist and she looked lovely. I glanced at the girl beside her. That must be Brooke.

She was so beautiful.

She wore a short dress that hugged her figure nicely. She had long, lean legs that were tanned from the Brazilian sun. On her feet she wore heels that sparkled brightly but she didn't seem to have any problem walking in them. Her blonde hair hung in beautiful waves that spiralled down to the top of her ribcage and was pinned back at the sides revealing diamond earrings. I gasped inwardly, shocked at how beautiful someone could be.

“Everyone ready?” Lia asked looking round at the room of faces. I kept my eyes on Brooke as Niall got up and whispered something in Lia's ear. It made her giggle and Brooke said something to Liam. I watched the way her full lips moved when she spook, the pretty sound of her laugh... Louis slapped me on the back, bringing me back to reality.

“Yeah. Lets go,” Brooke replied in a soft American accent. I watched as Niall took Lia's hand and lead her to the door. We all followed and I hung near the back of the group, positioning myself beside Brooke. We went to step through the door at the same time, so I stepped to the side and motioned for her to go through.

“Ladies first,” I smile impishly and she blushes, brushing her hair behind her ear shyly.

“Oh, by the way, this is Brooke,” Lia introduced the newcomer to me.

“Hey,” the boys all chimed.

“H-h-hello,” I must have sounded like a right muppet. I certainly felt like one. I felt my cheeks flush hot and I turned and got into the lift. I blew softly upwards, sticking my lower lip out and trying to cool myself down and disguise my embarrassment. I was normally okay with cute girls and usually flirted a lot. But Brooke made me feel nervous. I felt really awkward, not knowing what to say with Brooke standing there. I didn’t want to embarrass myself any more. We got out of the lift and I, once again, wasn't really paying attention to the conversation. It was only when Brooke

came and walked next to me that I woke up from my daydream.

“Hey,” she said, flashing me a smile.

“Hi,” I replied. My felt my face hot up again as she looked at me.

“I'm Brooke, but everyone knows me as B. I'm really looking forward to dinner tonight. Its a new restaurant, isn't it?”

“I'm not sure really,” I answered, my voice wavering. She smiled.

“What's funny?” I asked.

“You. You seem so nervous. Just be yourself!” She giggled and I chuckled too, she was right. I was nervous. We walk out of the door, the sun setting across the streets of Rio.

This was going to be a good night.
