8. Chapter 8

I heard Niall come with some ice, and we just stared at each other. Without breaking eye contact, Niall kneeled down, and started pulling up my jeans from the bottom. "Don't" I said. He looked at me confused. Then looked down at my leg to see bruises everywhere. He continued to pull up my jeans till it got above my knee and applied the ice he brought. We stared at each other again. I broke eye contact first to look at the rain. I still felt Niall looking at me. I turned back to look at him. "What?" I said. "You're beautiful." Is all he said. I looked back at the window until the rain stopped. "What's with you and the rain?" He asked. 

"It was raining when my mom died."

"How did she die?" 

"My dad killed her." I said stately 

"I'm sorry." He said looking into my eyes. I looked back out the window.

"Today's their anniversary." I said sadly. 


"My family's." 

"How do you mean?"

"My dad didn't just kill my mom. He also killed my brother and sister. They both would've been eight by now." I said as I started to cry. 

"How were they when they died?" 

"Four." I said as I started to cry nonstop. Niall came over and hugged me. I felt him kiss the top of my head. "I have to tell you something Niall." 


"I feel like I've known you my whole life. I trusted you from the moment I saw you." I said looking into his eyes. "Why?" I ask. 

"I'm not sure. I feel the same though." He said staring at my eyes. He started to lean in slowly still looking into my eyes.
