23. Chapter 22

The neighbourhood was rough, broken glass shattered over the pavements, trash on the road. Teenagers huddled around each other as they observed the people on the streets, probably looking for a fight. Harry clung onto the map as we drove around looking for the correct house, we needed to get this right, no mistakes. Harry poked his head out of the window as he heard a few of the teenagers call his name. Obviously we were known here too who would have thought.

“You gay bastard” one of the boys shouted.

“Come over here and we shall see” Harry snarled.

I grabbed the collar of his shirt and pulled him back into the car “not now.”

“But…”

“No Harry we’re here for one reason not for them wankers” I told him and continued to drive. We should be here it’s somewhere around here.

“Are you nervous?” Harry asked me.

I nodded “what if he isn’t here Haz?”

“We’ll find him if he isn’t here we’ll search somewhere else. We won’t stop until we have brought him back to you and Rae deal?”

It shocked me to see a side of Harry that cared for Rae, I know he’s had his differences with her. But maybe after our conversation he understands. Harry held on to my hand and looked at me “we’ll find him.”

I smiled “I know now come on I think this is the house let’s go.”

At first I was hesitant to get out of the car, knowing that whatever I find I won’t like. But I am not a coward I promised I would save Reiss and this is just the first step I needed to take. Harry was already out of the car looking across at the teens who shouted at us earlier. The old me would punch their fucking heads in, a part of me still would…

“You ready?” Harry asked me.

“No but let’s just go come on” I walked up the stairs and took a look at the house.

It was a state no doubt about that, the windows were broken, the door rusty and parts of mould consumed it. Is this really a safe place to look after a child?

I knocked on the door three times, they say three times is the charm. For a moment there was silence as if no one lived there, but then I heard rapid footsteps and the door opened revealing Rae’s mum. I took in a sharp intake of breath as I stared at the woman that ruined Rae’s life. Her face was expressionless as she stared through me. I uncurled my fists that I didn’t know was clenched and leant on the door frame.

 “You are not welcome here” she said spitefully.

 My throat roared “where is he?”

“He ran away” she said “after he rang you, he well he left and I haven’t seen him since.” The look in her eyes was torture only making me hate her more.

“You’re lying” I shouted “you’re lying I know it” she wouldn’t let him run she wouldn’t.

“Why would I lie? I’ve lost everything because of you, my daughter and my son even my husband.”

“You deserve no one" I hissed as I fell to the ground in distress.

"Listen to me you bat no one has to get hurt just give us Reiss" Harry growled at her.

She cackled "aw Louis didn't want to come alone, where’s Rae she dumped you already?"

I could no longer speak, the words I wanted to say wouldn’t come, luckily Harry spoke for me.

“Rae doesn’t know we’re here, how could you do that to your child you poisonous bitch” he spat at her. “She deserves better than you, so much better.”

Rae’s mum said nothing letting Harry rant on until he stopped “we will go now” he said and pulled me away. I watched the door close as I looked back at Harry, what the fuck is he doing?

“He’s here” I cried “I’m not leaving.”

“I never said we were but she won’t give us Reiss, she’s convinced he ran away and…”

Both mine and Harry’s head glanced up as I heard Reiss’ faint shouts. My stomach dropped and I grabbed on to Harry’s arm “I’m going in after him I don’t care what happens, are you with me?” I looked at my friend for comfort.

He nodded helping me up and after a second glance we ran into the door breaking it open. Rae’s mum wasn’t downstairs she was probably with Reiss getting him to shut up. I ran up the stairs as fast as I could and froze when I noticed Reiss cradled in her arms. He looked so fragile so defenceless almost as if he were…

I pushed Harry out the way and knocked over Rae’s mum as I held onto Reiss. “Reiss I’m here I told you I would come didn’t I? Reiss wake up I’m here I promise everything will be alright you will come home with me and Rae would you like that?” but there was no answer. I looked over at her “what have you fucking done?” I screamed. She couldn’t speak as she looked over at her dying son “what have you done” I repeated.

The ambulance got here within twenty minutes and throughout that time Reiss was in my arms. What if he’s already dead and he didn’t know I came for him, what if he thought I gave up? I shook my head and carried Reiss into the ambulance I wasn’t letting anyone else near him.

“Can I come?” I heard the bitch ask.

“Run” I whispered “because if you don’t and I ever see you again you’re going to wish you did.”

She didn’t have a chance to answer as the man shut the door to the ambulance. “What happened? He asked me.

“I don’t know” I said ashamed I wish I knew but would that make a difference? The pain I felt was too much knowing what happened would make it worse.

“He will make it Louis I promise you and then we’ll bring him home” Harry said beside me.

I nodded tears falling from my eyes “I love you Reiss” I whispered.
