Battle Scars

Heather has a past that has damaged her for life. She shuts everyone out and trusts no one. Then she meets Liam.


4. Darkness

For the rest of the day, I couldn't stop thinking about Liam. He wasn't like other guys that I'd met before, who constantly asked questions about my past. He seemed different.

By the time I had finished at work, it was dark outside. I hated walking home in the evenings when it was dark. Anything could happen.

So I began the frightening walk home. Every single sound I heard was a threat. After a few minutes, I noticed someone was behind me. It was probably just someone on their way home like me, but I convinced myself they were stalking me. I quickened my pace. They were still following me. I started to run. I took a turn down alleyway and out onto another street. I was running so fast I didn't see where I was going. I ran around a corner and straight into someone. Just as I was about to topple over, I felt strong arms steady me. I stood up straight. "You OK?" I heard the person say in a cute Irish accent. I nodded. "Yeah, I'm good thanks," I looked up at the person. He had blonde hair and a gorgeous smile. His smile faded when he saw the panicked look on my face. "Seriously, you alright?" he asked and I nodded again smiling. "Yeah, just scared myself a little," I replied. He gave me a concerned look then said " I don't want to sound creepy, but do you want me to walk you home?" I hesitated. "Depends, can you promise me you're not a physco?" He laughed."I promise.

"Then I guess it's OK," I replied. He smiled again. "I'm Niall by the way," he said and I shook his hand. "I'm Heather," I told him. "Well Heather, which way do we go to get to your flat?" I looked around. Brilliant. I'd managed to get lost twice in one day. "I'm not entirely sure," I admitted. He laughed again. "OK, how about I take you back to my flat?" I hesitated again. He seemed like a nice enough guy but that didn't prove anything. On the other hand it was freezing out here. I gave in. "Fine, but if you try anything dodgy, I will use my ninja skills on you," I warned him. He smiled. "Fair enough," he replied then we began walking towards his flat.
