Melody: A One Direction Fanfiction (Sequel to Gwen)

I am Melody Malik, and someone is after my family. I don't know who, but they're targeting us all.


4. Fear Incarnate


The phone had rung and Gwen's voice sounded like she had been crying. It was two in the morning. Oceana and Robin had laid claims to the guest room so I was stuck on the couch. I could hear anything that went on in the living room and in the kitchen.

"Dad... How's Erica?..... Good..... Good..... Oh, no..... What are we going to...... But you can't just leave her..... Seriously? Honestly, they're your kids..... I know, I know...... " she sighed heavily. "All right. Where do you want us to meet you?...... There? Why there of all places? It's so far away..... What if she wakes up..... Okay! God..... Okay. Not a problem. See you soon."

I noticed a shadow being cast in the light of the doorway. She was watching me sleep. "I'll tell them in the morning. No point in waking them up now." she mumbled to herself and disappeared into the hallway.

I had picked up the following: Mom was fine. We were going somewhere far away. And I was up for a long autumn.

Suddenly, I could hear yelling coming from the hall. Gwen and Tony were fighting over something, though I couldn't tell what.

"Honestly, Anthony Matthews, this is my family we're talking about!"

"She's just your stepmom, Gwendolyn Edwards-Malik, you're not obliged to do anything!"

"What about my brother and sisters? They need my help!"

"We rarely ever see them!"

"So? They need me, Tony!"

"What about the baby, Gwen? Did you even tell them about that?"

"I'm pregnant, not an invalid! I can do whatever the living hell I want!"

"Come talk to me when you're sensible!"

"Come talk to me when you understand family!"

I couldn't listen to it anymore. I hated causing fights. I buried my face into the small throw pillow.
