7. Chapter 7

“Louis, grab that bag. We need to go now.” I shouted at Louis. Checking the time and realising Dan could come back any minute. “Why such a rush?” Louis asked picking up the wrong bag. “Not that one, and I’ll explain later.” I say. With that, Louis and I walked out the house and loaded the boot. The others were all already in the car. “Ready?” I whispered to September who sat next to me and Liam “No” She laughed in reply. I grabbed her hand to try and make her calmer, but I don’t think it worked. The car journey felt longer, and was very quiet.

Louis’ POV

I was quite confused, to be fair I mean, all I know is that September’s living with us, but why all of a sudden? Why were there bruises on her face and body? “We’re back.” Liam said snapping me out of my thoughts. I got out the car and as the others helped September, I took the opportunity to talk to Niall. I pulled him too one side. “Hey!” Niall moaned “What’s happening?” I ask demanding answers. “I.. it. Ask September, it’s really not my place to say.” He said apologetically then walking out. Great. Will I ever find out? Obviously not today anyway. I walked downstairs where Liam, Zayn and Harry were. “This is driving me crazy.” Zayn moaned “What?” I asked wondering if he feels the same as me. “Not knowing what the fucks going on!” Zayn said half laughing. “I know!” I moaned, knowing how he felt. “Guys, this isn’t a joke. You’ll feel terrible for laughing when you find out what’s actually happened.” Liam said. “So you know and we don’t? Hows that fair?” Zayn whined. “I was with Niall and September today so she told me. Look she only just told Niall today or maybe yesterday. But still, be patient.” Liam started to get annoyed, and walked out the room. I felt bad for laughing, what if it is serious? Is it? “Woah.” Harry smiled. “Hey.” Niall said walking in the room, September slowly following behind. Niall turned to face September, and gave a quick reassuring glance. “em, I know you’re probably all wondering what happened,” September started, then came to a sudden pause and looked at our facial expressions. “happened.. to me.”

September’s POV

“Yeah.” Harry said clearly interested. “Well.” I began to tell my ‘story’ I kept pausing to look at their reactions, but they stayed silent till I said I was finished – which I liked. It showed they were listening. I didn’t really like talking about it, I end up crying and looking stupid. I tried to avoid the huge details I’d used whilst telling Niall, it would make me cry, and in front of all of one direction for fuck sake, I’d rather not embarrass myself. “And that’s it really. I hope you understand why I’m here now, but if you don’t and have a problem I’ll.. I’ll go back.” I said, trying to avoid eye contact from everyone.. except Niall. Or Liam for that matter. I wanted to just run out, but I knew that that would be stupid. “Oh my god. September, I’m so sorry.” Zayn said giving me a hug. “Why are you sorry, you didn’t rape me.” I said putting on a very noticeable fake laugh. Zayn gave me an apologetic look and faked a smile back. “September, you don’t always have to be this brave. We’re here for you.” Louis said - which was probably the nicest and most ‘sensible’ thing he’s ever said to me so far. “I just don’t get what I’m actually going to achieve being here. Dan will find me straight away. And what about my mum?” I say aware I’ve met a dead end.. in life. I start to cry. Niall gives me a comforting hug, and doesn’t let go. “One second.” Harry said dashing out the room. “I wish we could do more to help, I mean we’re tied down in America till at least the end of the year..” Louis said after 10 minutes of silence with a sigh. “Not anymore.” Harry said walking in with a grin. “I told Paul that we hated it here, so we’re all going to Australia” Harry paused looking at me, I’m guessing by all he meant me too? “Huh?” Zayn asked confused, speaking what probably what everyone else was thinking. “Only for a year. But we’re not ‘big’ there; Paul was going to suggest it to us after here. But that’s too late. We’ve got tickets for Tuesday morning.” He said smiling. “Are you sure you want to do this?” I ask, worried that they’re doing this for me, and me only. I looked at the other boys, who remained silent for a little while. “Yes.” They all said, not with much confidence, but smiling. “I love you all. Thank you so much. But you shouldn’t have to make this sacrifice for me, I’m fine here.” I said lying. “no you’re not, and I wasn’t lying on the phone. Of course we’re leaving for a different reason, but I hate it here.” Harry half laughed. I walked up to him and hugged him. “But Paul said not to tell anyone we’re going or where until we’re in Australia.” Harry said sounding serious. I nodded, reassuring Harry that I wouldn’t tell anyone.
