The Hotline

"Do you think anyone would miss me?" A deep,raspy voice comes on the line, before I even say my name."Do you think anyone would care? If I pull the trigger of this gun, who would miss me?" I am startled by the sound of a gun being loaded. I am about to respond, when suddenly I hear a shot go off.


18. Chapter Eighteen



“Maddy? Its Lexi, I need your help.” I can immediately hear Lexi’s voice crack on the other line.


“Are you okay? What’s going on?” I ask whilst watching Harry begin to pick up the trash from the floor.


“Um, I just really need you to come get me.” I know something’s wrong by the way that she’s avoiding answering my questions.


“Yeah, where are you?”


“The tiny pub at the end of our street.”


“Why are you at a pub!” I yell into the phone getting Harry to rush over from the kitchen and stand in front of me.


“Please just come and get me.” Her voice cracks again.


“Okay, but don’t move from there.” I say sternly and hang up.


“What’s going on?” Harry asks me as I get up from the end of the couch.


“I’m sorry but I have to go, Lexi is in some sort of trouble.”


“Where is she?” He asks.


“At some pub by my house.”


“I can drive you, you can’t go by yourself in there.” He says whilst slipping on his coat and grabbing his keys from the table.


“No, you don’t have-“ I start to say but he interrupts me.


“I’m taking you.”


“Okay.” I smile up at him and then grab my coat from the coat rack by the door.


We pull out of the flat complex and I’m surprised that there are no photographers, and then I remember that it’s four in the morning. The time only heightens my anger towards Lexi for being out this late and for being in a pub at all.


“God! Why in the hell is she at a pub? She’s sixteen!” I yell in frustration making Harry chuckle slightly.

“Don’t laugh at me.” I say into my hands.


“I’m not.” He says but I know that he’s smirking.


“Look Maddy, I bet she’s okay.”


“She better be, because once I’m through with her she won’t be.”


“Is this the pub?” Harry asks and I look up at the familiar building.




Harry and I both get out of the car and walk to the entrance. There are only a few people outside, probably since it’s so late. My legs start to get goose bumps from the winter air and my short dress isn’t helping.


“Hey there sexy.” A man says from the corner of the door. He’s incredibly drunk and looks like shit, which only worsens the disgust in my stomach.


Suddenly an arm is wrapped around my waist and I’m being pulled into someone’s waist. I look up immediately and see Harry his face completely covered in anger. Something tells me that if we don’t get in the pub soon, Harry will end up doing something he regrets. We don’t want that on a magazine cover now do we?


So I do the first thing that pops into my mind and I take my hand under his jacket and under his shirt as well and begin to rub his bare skin on his back. Even with the cold, his body is warm and cozy. Almost immediately he looks down and smiles at me.


We finally get inside, and I begin to look around for my little sister. The uneasy feeling in my belly is growing by the second and bile is surly to come up soon if I don’t find her.


But I do, and I wish I hadn’t found her.


“Oh my god Lexi!” I yell out when I see her on the floor by the restroom.


My yelling attracts the attention of plenty of people who are still drinking at the pub. However the only thing on my mind is making sure that she’s okay. I rush over to her and I can feel Harry following close behind.


I fall to my knees once I’m in front of her and I am astounded by her appearance. Her eyes are bloodshot, her hair is a mess on the top of her head, and I’m pretty sure that there is vomit on her dress.


“Here I got her.” I hear Harry say as he proceeds to bend down and get Lexi into his arms.


We get up and my anger returns, and I look around for the owner of the building. I finally meet eyes with someone behind the bar shining some tall glasses with a dirty rag.


“You!” I shout and make my way to him as Harry walks towards the exit of the pub.


“You best believe you’ll be hearing from the authorities and you better be ready to see me in court. What is wrong with you, giving a sixteen year old beer?” The old man just stands there and I don’t have the energy to yell anymore, I simply smooth my dress out and walk out of the nasty environment.


I see Harry put Lexi into his back seat and I walk over to them.


“Lexi, what did you do?” I whisper more to myself then the blonde headed girl laying down in the back seat of my boyfriend’s car.


My boyfriend! Oh my gosh what did I just get Harry into?


“ Harry we have to get you out of here.” I say quickly looking around.


He doesn’t say anything in response but makes his way to the driver’s side and starts the car. I follow his lead and get into the passenger’s side.
