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.


38. Understanding

We've been in Ireland for two weeks now and Melody was becoming part of my everyday life. I had even managed to get Niall on her! It was hilarious as he was so stiff and terrified at first. But slowly, he began to relax as she plodded around the field. Then Harry came running up behind her clapping and she freaked. She dashed off and I glared at Harry. he apologised, but soon the pair of us were on the floor in a heap of laughter as Niall was trying to stay on whilst she cantered. Eventually, she calms down and walks over to me once I grab a handful of hay and wave it in the air. She munches on it as Niall climbs down from her back in the most ungracefully way.
"Well," he says, glaring at Harry.
"I don't think that horses are my thing," he declares, patting Melody's neck.
"You'll get better," I promise, hugging him.
"Hmm, I doubt that." He winks and I laugh.

"Morning, Melody." I say as I approach her in her field. She didnt have a stable here as we were only here for a few more days. She lifts her head from the floor, meeting my eyes. I pat her and then head over to the small shed that was acting as a feed room/tack shed. I pull out her purple bucket and begin to mix her breakfast. Once it's done, I add a touch of water and walk over to her. Immediately, she gobbles it down and when I try to take it back, she grips it tightly in her mouth; refusing to let go.
"Oit," I chuckle, eventually prying it from her.
"You alright?" Belle asks, coming up behind me.
"Yeah, Melody is just being greedy." I chuckle.
"You really love her, don't you." She says, sitting down on the grass.
"Yeah, I do. I can't thank Niall enough." I sit down cross-legged beside her and pick at the grass, smiling at the thought of Niall.
"How are you anyway?" I ask her and she shrugs.
"I'm doing better, I guess. I'm so thankful for everything that you've all done." She smiles at me shyly.
"Iva sure likes Aaliyah," I note.
"Yeah; the two are inseparable." She chuckles.
"How's things with Lou?" I ask, raising my eyebrows.
"What do you mean, there's nothing going on?" She looks down at the grass but I can see the colour rising to her cheeks.
"I can see the way he looks at you, Belle." I nudge her in the side.
"Yeah, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to be with someone like that." She sniffs and I nod, understanding. I mean, she'd been through a lot and probably doesn't know what if feels like to be cared about. I put my arm around her and hug her.
"Thank you, Lia." She smiles and I smile too.
