Do you Promise?

Alyssa is abused at home, bullied at school, and doesn't have many friends. One day she runs away from home and right into the arms of a blonde-haired, blue-eyed Irish boy. But what happens when others fall for her? And what about the past she left at home?


6. More than a Scary Movie

Alyssa's P.O.V:

When we got in the movies, we still hadn't decided what movie we wanted to watch. Niall, Louis, and Zayn wanted to watch Saw, while Liam and I wanted to watch Hunger Games. We ended up going to see Paranormal Activity 3, which I hated. I hate scary movies. We bought some snacks and went in. I sat beside Niall who interlocked his hand into mine. I looked at him and  smiled. He did the same, his bright blue eyes sparkling. Once the movie started, I tried to watch it. It was really scary, though. About midway through the movie I couldn't take it anymore. Something jumped out and I screamed, burying my head in Niall's shoulder. He must have been scared, too, because he was shaking a little. I cuddled up next to him and tried to watch the movie again. At least I hadn't thrown my popcorn like Harry did.

And that's when it happened.

Someone came walking in through the movie theater door, which is normal, but this guy pulled out a gun and started firing randomly. I screamed, as so many others were, and Niall realized that this wasn't part of the movie. He jumped in front of me to protect me, and a ricocheting bullet caught him in the stomach.


He slumped onto the floor, still conscious, but barely. He looked up at me, with tears falling down my face, and gave my hand one last squeeze before he fell unconscious. Luckily, none of the other boys were hurt, so once the man was taken away by the theater security, they helped me carry Niall out. I couldn't believe it. I was still in shock. The only guy I have ever loved was taken from me by a bullet. I really hoped he wasn't dead. Louis came over to me and wrapped his arm around my shoulder. 

"He'll be alright. He's strong."

I looked up at Louis as his voice trembled and realized that he was crying, too. Zayn and Harry laid Niall in the back seat and we sped towards the hospital. I realized that just a few weeks ago, I was in the same situation that Niall was in. I remembered waking up and seeing his beautiful face stricken with tears, and yet he had a smile on his face. I remembered when he asked me out, the love and adoration in his eyes. I couldn't bear to live without him.

Niall's P.O.V:

I heard gunshots about halfway through the movie. For a second, I thought they were just sound effects from the movie, but everyone else in the theater was in a wild panic. Realizing that Aly was in danger, I jumped over her, and just as I did, a bullet ripped through my abdomen. The pain was like white-hot fire, and I was almost passed out. I fell to the ground and looked at Aly. She was crying. I realized this might be the last time I ever see her, but my mouth wouldn't form words. I squeezed her hand, trying to convey all of my words through that touch. The last thing I remember is one of her tears hitting my cheeks.

Harry's P.O.V: 

No. I refused to believe that this was happening. One of my best mates was just hit by a bullet and now we were taking him to the hospital. Niall couldn't die. Without him, there was no One Direction. He had to be strong. Watching Aly, I realized that she needed him as much as he needed her. He had to stay with us. If he died, Aly would be broken. She'd hide herself from the world and go insane. I didn't want that to happen.

I leaned down next to  Niall's ear, and even though he couldn't hear me, I whispered, "C'mon Niall don't do this to us. Especially not Aly. Stay with us, mate." Before I knew it, I was crying, too. We made it to the hospital, the same one that Aly had been in a couple months before, and were rushed into the Emergency Care Room. The doctors worked feverishly, trying to save our mate. All we could do now was wait.
