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.


10. The Stream


 “What on earth are you doing?” I raise my eyebrows at him as he pads bare foot over to the water's edge.

“Cooling down,” He tells me with a wink before diving straight in to the simmering water. I laugh as he resurfaces and I come down to the edge. I place the basket down and take a seat on the grass bank beside the stream. His blonde hair sticks to his forehead with the water and he shoots me a grin.

“Care to join?” He wiggles his eyebrows at me.

“No thanks,” I laugh, dragging a single finger through the water.

“I know you will.” He states, holding back a smile.

“How?” I question; my eyebrows drawn together.

“Because I’m going to do this,” I scream as Niall grabs my arms and yanks me in to the cool water. I swim up and splash him once I open my damp eyes.

“Hey!” I exclaim splashing him again as he laughs uncontrollably.

“Niall?” I ask as he dissapears from view. A few moments later, hands grip my legs and I’m pulled under. I panic and grapple for something to hold on to. My arms find Niall and he intertwines our fingers. WE surface together and he leans in close. Was he going to kiss me? No. He wouldn't. I was just a peasant Brazilian girl. He was a superstar. But his lips were now millimetres from mine. I close my eyes and just as we're about to meet in the middle Harry's voice causes us to pull away.

“What's taking so long, you guys?” Harry asks, going red when he sees us.

“Oh...” He trails off and I swim away from Niall, my cheeks glowing.

“Yay! Swimming!” Iva shouts as she runs to the waters edge and jumps in. The water splashes up and drenches Harry, leaving me and Niall in a fit of giggles.

“Jelly!” He groans, looking at his wet t-shirt.

“Oops,” She giggles, smiling deevishly. He jumps in after her, causing an even bigger splash. I laugh as Niall swims under the water and sticks his hand up; impersonating a shark.

“A shark!” Harry exclaims, pointing at the 'Shark' and faking a girly scream.

“Quick!” Iva shouts too, clambering on to Harry's back. He swims away from Niall towards the other side of the stream and Niall comes up for air.

“Niall...” I warn as he grins at me. He dips under again and heads straight for me. I squeal as his hands grip my thighs under the water and I try to wriggle away.

“Charge!” Harry shouts, Iva laughing away on his back. He treads over to me, pushing Niall away. Niall comes up, laughing and wiping the water from his eyes. Iva jumps down from Harry and swims to me. I catch her and rest her on my hip as we watch the two boys wrestle each other in the water.

“Harry, harry!” Iva cheers and I laugh.

“Niall, Niall!” I cheer too, watching as Harry stands up and blows me kiss before Niall jumps from the water and tackles him. They finally stop and Niall wades over to us; taking Iva from my arms. He places her on his back and she laughs in delight as he spins around; splashing water as he goes. I don't think there is anything more attractive then when boys are good with children.

Shut up, brain.
