55. Outside

Lucy's POV


We started down the streets. Passing various people dressed up for the clubs. You could feel the beat of the music on your feet as you passed each club. The smell of alcohol made me want to gag and the vibrating laughs of young adults hurt my ears. "We need to find a more clearer root!" Harry yells next to me, sounding like he was whispering to me. 

"I know! Come on, lets go left!" I yell back to him and we take a turning down another street with a few houses and cars parked to the sides on the pavement. About 3 street lamps lit it up and the further I looked down the road, the less I felt safe. Oh well. Its better than getting caught by Julia again.

I look to Lily and see she's still sound asleep after all of that. How are children such heavy sleepers?! Less complaining more escaping.

We jogged to the middle of the street and the music faded out of my hearing and all that I could hear now was Harrys' and I's laboured breathing. "W-where are we?" My voice shook in the cold winds of the night. 

"No idea. Just keep walking and lets find town. Once we're there we can get directions or call a cab." He explains and I nod, too cold to open my mouth again.

Our walk must have carried on for about 20 minutes before we were interrupted. "Mummy..." a small voice hollered from beside me. I look to Harry's arms and see Lily fidgeting slightly. "Please... don't m-mummy!" Lily thrashed violently in his arms with her eyes still closed shut tightly. 

Harry struggled to stop her from falling onto the floor. "Lucy! Help me! She won't stay still!" Harry exclaimed and tried to pull the small girl into his chest. I drop the bag onto the floor and step in front of Harry. Lily rolls into my open arms and I start singing quietly to her.

" Hush, little baby, don't say a word. Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird. And if that mockingbird won't sing, Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring. And if that diamond ring turns brass, Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass. And if that looking glass gets broke, Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat." I start and Harry joins in half way through. I look up to him and gave him a small smile as Lily stopped thrashing about and settled down in my arms. 

"Well done." Harry whispers and winks at me. I wink back.

"Get the bag for me?" I ask quietly and he nods. Lily isn't that heavy in all honesty. She's too light for a five-year-old. That needs to change. Harry is back at my side and we're walking off down the street before I know it. 

We take a right turn away from the street as it ends and meet a park. We take a slow jog to the gates of a field and push through it. Next to the field is a playground for teens as it has larger swings and a giant slide. 

In the park is also a group of people wearing baggy jeans and hoodies. Their conversations were too loud and their voices slurred through the wind. "Ignore them, babe." Harry whispered comfortingly to me as the men started calling to us and wolf whistling at me. Fucking disgusting. 

"I am more than ready to hit the living daylights out of them if they carry on." My voice strained and I tightened my grip on Lily's blanket. One of them got up and made their way over to us. 

"Heey b-babe." He stumbled to me and placed a hand on my shoulder. I shook it off and carried on walking as if I hadn't noticed him. I tensed under his grip as he pulled me back, making me almost drop Lily. "I'm ... t-talking to you b-bitch!" He yelled and spat on my face. 

"Hey dude! What's your fucking problem?!" Harry yelled at the man and he let go of my shoulder to step back and look at Harry. His eyes were menacing as he examined Harry. His face full of disgust.

"I'm j-just ... messin' around m-man." His venomous voice cut through me like a knife. It was a joke and we all knew it. 

"Leave my girl alone and you'll live to see tomorrow." Harry threatened, taking a step towards him, fists balled up tightly. 

"Harry, leave him and let's go." I step away from the stranger and closer to Harry. I can't help but find his defence for me incredibly hot. 

"Yeah, H-Harry, ... why d-don't you go h-home and... leave us a-alone?" The stranger mocked him and winked at me. Ugh please. 

"One last chance." Harry muttered so quietly that I was only just able to hear him. I take a quick glance to Lily and see she's still undisturbed by everything. "We're going." He said, hoisting the princess bag up his back. We turned our backs and walked off. 

"F-fucking pathetic... scum." The stranger cough loudly. Before I can stop him, Harry turned around and threw a punch at him.

"Don't. You. Ever. Talk. To. Us. Like. That. Again." Every word spoken, a hit was taken. "Hear me?" Harry growled and I looked at the bleeding man on the floor. His nose looked broken and one eye was starting to swell up. The man started chuckling, laughing even at him. 

"Oh yeah? A-and what?" He laughed and I looked around and saw the strangers mates gathering around us. Oh fuck. One man held a broken beer bottle in his hand while another carried a baseball bat. Wait, back the fire truck up. A FLAMING BASEBALL BAT? WHO ACTUALLY CARRIES ONE OF THOSE AROUND WITH THEM?! Holy crap... 

"What's going on here, then?" A less slurred but huskier voice said. "You troubling our friend?" I cringed as I felt the breath of one of them on the back of my neck. 

"N-no." Harry's voice was weaker and less confident than before. So you decide to back down now then? Gah, men! They are more confusing than life. 

"Don't lie to me!" The man yelled and punch Harry's jaw.

"Harry!" I exclaim and try to get to him. I'm stopped, however when arms grabbed me and I fell backwards onto the person. "Get off me!" I squeal and the man wraps his arm around my neck firmly but light enough that I can still breathe. 

"I suggest you be a good little girl and stay quiet while my friends sort your boyfriend out." He whispered in my ear. The stench of bad breath and alcohol filled my nose and I gagged slightly. Not wanting anymore hassle, I didn't move again. 

"Awe, you're girlfriend is quite the looker. Maybe we can have some "fun" with her later, eh?" The man who had hit Harry asked. 

"Don't you touch her!" Harry growled and stood up tall. Oh for Jelly Babies sakes! He's going to get himself killed! Two men came up behind him and grabbed his arms, twisting them behind him. It took every instinct in my body not to lash out and cry.

The man, who I'm guessing is the leader of this all, struck Harry with a punch to the chest and a kick in the ribs. I closed my eyes; not wanting to see anything else. I wish I could do the same to my ears as the grunts and groans of pain made me sick. I pulled Lily closer to my chest, pulling her head towards me so that if she did wake up; she wouldn't see a thing. A girl this age shouldn't see this horror of life. 

"Darren, the kids had enough." A voice spoke up. It was lighter and a lot more squeaky. Obviously, he hasn't started puberty yet....

"I'll say when the bastards finished!" The leader - now known as Darren - yelled, followed by a grunt and a few coughs.

"He'll pass out soon. Let's just take the girl the girl and get." The same squeaky man said timidly. Oh for fuck sakes. 

"Okay! That's it! I've had enough! Let the dude go and no one gets hurt even more. We already have a name and know your faces so we can go to the poice with that!" I yelled, the grip tightening on my neck. "Oh and dude who's holding me? Your breath fucking stinks! Ever heard of toothpaste or even a mint? Jesus dude, hygeine!" I added before coughing from lack of air. 

"A girl with balls, eh?" Darren chuckles and I roll my eyes.

"Very funny, Sherlock. Now let us go." My vision starts to splodge and go blurry.

"She can't breathe stupid!" I hear Harry yell. Then groan.

"I said don't talk to me like that!" Darren yelled. The grip is loosened slightly and I gasp for air. Holy baby budgies! That's better.

"Mummy?" Lily starts to wake up. Bloody great! Just what we needed.

"Wh- Where am I?" She wriggles around in my arms. 

"Shh baby, go back to sleep." I whisper to her. "Mummy is coming back soon." I lie, but it's better for her to believe that now then to have her crying. 

"Lucy? Why are you here? Why are we at the park?" She asks the questions I wanted to avoid until we got home. 

"I'll tell you later, sweetie. Just go to sleep." I say and shift her about a little. 

"Hmm. It's cold though," she shivered in my arms. I pull the blanket over her for more warmth and she snuggles up closer to me and falls back asleep.

"Wouldn't it be a shame if something happend to her?" Darren teased. I looked up to see him twirling a knife in his hands. I glared at him.

"Wouldn't it be a shame if you lost that maggot and its eggs of yours?" I teased earning a few laughs from his "friends". 

"Shut it, bitch." Darren growled, stalking further forwards like an eagle to its prey. He sure was a fuck ugly eagle. 

"Bet you have only lost your V-card to a slapper or stripper; and I bet she was sick all over that maggot." I smirked. "Oh and I forgot, Gollum called. He wants his face back." I winked at him. Even the man behind me laughed a little. A few 'oooohs' choursed while Darrens' face went bright red. 

"Says Ugly Betty." he chuffed. 

"Oh haha. At least I can get some." I laughed sarcastically. 

"That's it!" He yelled and charged at me. My eyes widened and my heart raced. I tried to move or do something, but I couldn't. 

Everything was in slow motion. He grabbed Lily from my arms. She jolted away, too clumsy and full of sleep to realize what was going on. Darren yanked her head up with one hand and with the other he held the knife. I thrashed about in the strangers arms. "Lucy!" Lily cried helplessly. Darren moved his arm across Lily's neck in one swift motion.

Blood splurged every where. 

I couldn't look away. 

Her eyes bore into mine as they grew dull and soon enough, lifeless.

This is yet another person I have killed with my big mouth.
