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.


7. They Don't Know About Us


 “Converse,” I try the foreign word out on my lips.

“You've never seen them before?” His fair eyebrows raise up as his blue eyes meet mine in question.

“Nope,” I shake my head, following Iva and Harry up to the start of the dirt path that leads to the cluster of houses on the mountains that is our village.

“Really?” He sounds taken aback and I smile at his confusion.

“Here in Brazil we don't exactly live the celebrity life,” I chuckle and this seems to make him feel uncomfortable. He avoids meeting my eyes and strums the beginning of a song on his guitar. Harry stops and turns to face Niall, a grin plastered on his face.

“People say we shouldn't be together,” He begins to sing, placing Iva on his back. His voice is lovely and kind of... rusted. I love it.

“We're too young to know about forever.” He spins around with Iva as we begin the trek up the dirt track. I see Niall's nose scrunch at the smell of the many houses surrounding us. People come out from their houses and cast curious glances at us as Niall strums the guitar louder and begins to sing.

“But I say they don't know what they're talk-talk-talkin' about. Cause this love is only getting stronger so I don't wanna wait any longer. I just wanna tell the world that you're mine girl,” He smiles impishly and I chuckle, waving at a woman and her little baby that are watching from the doorway of their hut.

“They don't know about the things we do,” Harry and Niall sing together, making goosbumps appear on my skin.

“They don't know about the “I love you”'s. But I bet you if they only knew they would just be jealous of us,” Harry offers me his hand as we reach a steep bit and I take it, smiling gratefully.

“They don't know about the up all nights, they don't know i've waited all my life just to find a love that feels this right. Baby they don't know about, they don't know about us.” Niall winks at me. A young boy runs up to meet us, clapping as Niall sings. We reach the top of the village and I spot my hut. Niall strums the last chord and I nod at the small hut that Iva is leading Harry in to.

“That's my home,” I say, ashamed to admit this to him and I hate that I feel that way. He doesn't say anything as we walk inside, the musty air filling the small room.

“This is my bedroom!” I hear Iva exclaim from the other end of the hut.

“Well, yeah...” I tell Niall as I motion at the room.
