Cherish Me (Sequel To Rescue Me)

Sequel to Rescue Me.

Mrs Horan.
Lia still couldn't believe it.
But with something else big happening, will Niall and Lia pull through? Will they be strong enough? Or will they fall apart?


9. Better Than Yesterday




Lia's POV



The next morning, I wake up fairly early and leave Niall in bed. Creeping down the stairs, I head into the kitchen and spot a figure sitting on one of the bar stools looking out at the garden. 
"Jelly?" I say, thinking it's Iva. The figure turns and I muster a smile as I realise it's Skyla.
"Oh, hey. Sorry I thought you were my sister." I head over to the fridge and begin to get things out.
"Do you want a drink? Tea? Coffee?" I ask, turning and lifting my eyebrows at her with a soft smile. She looks down at her fingers shyly, pondering for a few moments.
"Can I have a cup of tea, please?" She asks hesitantly in a small voice. I nod and think of something to say whilst I fill the kettle with water and switch it on. I grab two mugs, milk, sugar and spoons and wait for the water to boil.
"How are you feeling?" I ask gently and Skyla rubs her hand along her arm self-consciously. She gives me a small nod.
"I-I still hurt and... ache but... I feel... better than yesterday," She meets my eyes and smiles slightly before quickly looking down at the counter.
"Good," I reply and start to pour water into the mugs. 
"Good morning!" B chimes, coming into the kitchen followed by a sleepy looking Zayn.
"Hey," He says, eyes half closed. When he spots Skyla he clears his throat and runs a hand through his hair. He walks over and sits down beside her; the two of them having a soft conversation.
"Morning," I say as B comes and stands beside me and places another cup down for her. I fill it with water and add milk to them all.
"How is she?" She asks, nodding behind her slightly at the two of them. I bite my lip as I stir the tea.
"She said she was feeling better than yesterday," I tell her in a hushed voice. 
"Here you go," I say gently, placing the mug down infront of Skyla. She smiles and whispers a thanks.
"So," Brooke claps her hands. 
"Who wants to go shopping today?" 

I push Tristan's buggy up and down slightly to keep him from crying as Brooke pays for something.
"Thanks," She smiles and takes the buggy from me once she's finished. She hangs the bags she was holding onto the handles of the buggy as I look around for the others.
"Belle," I call, noticing her looking around with Skyla for us. I wave them over and we all head out of the shop and back into the precinct. 
"Where to now?" Belle asks, flattening her skirt.
"Shall we go get some food?" I ask and everyone nods in agreement. Belle starts talking with Brooke about Star's competition coming up next week so I fall behind them to walk with Skyla.
"Did you find anything in there?" I ask her and she shakes her head.
"It's all so expensive," She says softly and my hear squeezes.
"But you don't have anything with you so it's fine, Skyla, honestly. Don't worry about it, you can pay us back later on or something. Don't worry," I smile and she nods, smiling slightly too. We remain in silence as we follow the others into a cafe. As we're sitting down my phone buzzes with a text. Unlocking it, I see it's from Niall.
How is she?Xx
I reply telling him that Skyla is fine and we're just sitting down for lunch.
"So, Skyla. We're going to a party on saturday and we want to know if you'd want to come?" Belle asks, bravly. We'd been debating asking her all day and I was really worried how she would react.
"Erm..." She looks panicked for a moment.
"Don't worry, you don't have to. We just thought you'd like to get out and... take your mind off... everything." Brooke leans forward in her seat and puts a gentle hand on her arm. Skyla seems to relax and begins to shake her head, tucking her hair behind her ear.
"Only if it's okay." She says quietly, looking at her hands in her lap.
"Of course it is!" Brooke exclaims, beaming.
"This is going to be so good." Belle grins and I find myself smiling too.
