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.


53. Today?!




Lia's POV


Oh my god. 

Oh my god.

Oh my god.


I was getting married today! 


To Niall! 


I crack open my eyes and just stare in disbelief at my mother's engagement ring on my finger. Never in my life would I thought I would see it on my finger, as my own. Never. Let alone to Niall Horan. 

Lia Horan.

Oh my god.

I sit up slowly, nausea rushing over me.

"Lia!" Brooke literally screams, pounding down the door and rushing into the room. 

"Going to the chapel and you're gunna get ma-a-arried!" Brooke sings excitedly as she jumps around my room like a child on Christmas morning.

"Brooke!" I laugh, throwing a pillow at her. She catches it and then hugs it to her stomach.

"Gunna get ma-a-arried," She sings under her breath as she begins to pull out my dress from my wardrobe.

"Right," She lays the bag with the dress in and then claps her hands.

"Morning!" Belle chimes, coming in to the room with Aaliyah on her hip. Jelly rushes in too, sitting down on the bed and giving me a huge hug.

"I'll take the girls to have breakfast whilst you start getting everything sorted," Belle says, taking the girls by the hand down the stairs.

"Take a seat," Brooke says, pointing to the dressing table. I sit down and she pulls my hair down from it's messy ponytail. My face is tired and pale; I was up all night with nerves. All of the boys had gone to stay the night at a hotel, which had been privately booked just for them. 

"So, your hair all pulled back in your natural waves and pinned to the back in loose curls. With a few stray curls falling around your face?" B recites, going over our plans. 

"M-hmm," I nod, smiling. Brooke chats excitedly as she works on my hair. Once she's finished she applies a little bit of make-up; keeping to a natural look that I know Niall likes. A soft white powder coats my lids, shimmering in the light. My lashes are lined with clear mascara, my tired eyes are brought alive with foundation and Brooke places a soft pink colour to my lips. 

"Thank you, B. I love it." I say, turning my face in the light coming from the large window. We'd been over this look a thousand times this week, but it looked the best it ever had today. She flicks her wrists at me in dismissal, grabbing my dress from the bed. She helps me into it and I slip on the heels. I had still not learnt to walk in them properly, but it didn't bother me. I was planning on taking them off after the reception anyway.

"Oh, I nearly forgot!" Brooke places my bracelet that I got for my birthday on my wrist, then she gently lowers the garland of lilac flowers onto my head and re-positions my hair around it. I smile and she helps me fasten the clip on my mother's necklace that she brought me for my sixteenth. It was a simple silver chain, a small violet tear-drop pendant hanging from the middle. I stand beside Brooke as we look in the mirror. I gasp at the sight. I looked like...


like a bride.

"You look perfect," Brooke says, before wrapping her arms around me in a hug. We pull apart and I head down the stairs, Brooke carefully holding up my train. I wait in the living room whilst everyone else gets dressed. My phone buzzes so I snatch it from the coffee table and answer.


"Lia, are you awake?" Louis asks.

"Obviously," I laugh.

"It's half ten, Lou. Have you only just got up?" I put on a motherly tone.

"No," He replies, faking offense.

"But Niall has. We just had to literally drag him from bed; told him there was Nando's in the kitchen for breakfast." Louis laughs and I roll my eyes.

"Typical. Anyway, don't get up to too much mischief and try to make sure you're all on time." I laugh and I hear him pat his chest.

"I swear on behalf of all the boys that I will be responsible for them all making it, Mummy Lia."  

"What could possibly make me doubt you?" I chuckle and he clucks his tongue.

"Excuse me?! I'll have you know I am the most responsible and serious one out of us all." Louis says and I hear Harry shout 'Yeah right!' in the background.

"Anyway, goodbye Mummy Lia." 

"Goodbye, Lou." I shake my head and laugh as I put the phone down on the coffee table again.

"So, what do you think?" Belle says, waltzing in to the living room with Aliyah and Jelly holding her hands.

"You all look stunning!" I exclaim, bringing my hands to my mouth. Aliyah, Iva, Brooke and Belle were all dressed in matching lilac dresses. They were floor length strapless for Belle and B, scrunched up at the right so the material flowed down. They were three lilac flowers sewn into the right top of the dress and they matched my dress and garland perfectly. Iva's and Aliyah's had spaghetti straps and they both had a small purple flower pined to their heads. 

"And baby Tristan," B holds up Tristan and he gurgles, his hazel eyes wide.

"Aw!" I exclaim again, taking in his tiny suit.

"That's adorable." I say, standing up. Brooke's mother, Sarah, comes into the room, dressed in a knee-length simple white dress with a furry black cardigan covering her shoulders. Her blonde hair was a similar colour to Brooke's but a bob-length. It was pulled back at one side with a pretty flower clip.

"You look stunning, Lia." She says, bringing me into a hug. Brooke's mother arrived here a day after Tristan was born. The two of them sorted everything out and it didn't take long for Sarah to fall in love with Tristan. She'd also taken a shining to Harry which was excellent. 

"Thank you, Sarah." I reply, smiling.

"So do you," I counter and she blushes.

"Oh this old thing," She picks at her dress.

"Shut up, Mom. You spent over a hundred pounds on that yesterday," Brooke laughs and Sarah chuckles too. 

"Right, the transport is outside." Sarah announces, smiling and taking Tristan from B's arms.
