Stole My Heart

Abby Watkins is a small town girl who works at her family's diner with her brother Danny and best friend Nikki. When One Direction shows up at the diner, Louis instantly falls in love and turns Abby's world upside down.


11. Remembering

After getting a gown, Louis led me into the ball.

"I'm nervous," I whispered.

"Just smile, nod, and laugh like a total snob," he replied.

 "Louis!" a woman called. She walked over toward us with her husband.

"Ellen! So nice to see you!" he chimed. "This is my girlfriend, Abby."

"It's a pleasure to meet you!" Ellen exclaimed. "I'm Ellen Ryan, I'm friends with the band's manager."

"Nice meeting you, too!" I replied.

I looked at Louis and Ellen carrying on a conversation about how the other boys were doing and such. Louis was so hot, especially in the tux he was wearing. He winked at me with one of his dreamboat eyes.

For the next hour, Louis and I walked around talking to people he knew while I stood there like an idiot not knowing anybody. Then we approached the dance floor, where a song had just started and everyone was slow dancing. 

"Care to dance?" Louis asked me, reaching his hand out for me.

I placed my hand on his. "Of course."

We strolled out and I put my hands behind his neck as he put his on my waist. "Sorry about all these awkward moments for you," Louis said.

"That's okay," I replied. "You're here."

Louis smiled. "You look beautiful."

"Thanks," I said. "And you look handsome."

He started to lean in for a kiss but stopped when I gasped. I stared at a man a few floors above us who had just made eye contact with me. I suddenly had a flashback.


I was thirteen. Mom had just told me to get some books from the library, so I walked there. Suddenly a sketchy black van pulled alongside the road and two men grabbed me and pulled me in. I tried screaming and flailing my arms, but neither worked. The two guys held me down and the man from the driver seat turned around. "Excellent work, boys. Time to get to work on her."


I grabbed Louis's arm and dragged him to the staircase, running up the steps. "How can you run so fast in heels?!" he exclaimed.

"I've got Converse on!" I replied, sprinting the rest of the stairs.
