15. Chapter 13

Hey.” Liam says. Raquel bursts out of her seat, walks over to him, and punches him in the face as hard as she can. Liam staggers back, his eye slightly swelling and turning purple. “YOU LEAVE ME SAYING NOT TO TELL ANYONE THAT YOU AND YOUR DUMBASS FRIENDS ARE IN DANGER, LEAVING ME SCARRED WITH WHAT I SAW, AND YOU COME BACK AND SAY FUCKING “HEY”!” Raquel says, screaming at him. Liam stands there, speechless, still in shock that she is there. “Um, Raquel?” Louis says, his voice quavering. “THE FUCK DO YOU WANT?” Raquel screams at him as well. Louis just looks at the floor, then at Liam, who is holding his eye. “I DESERVE SOME FUCKING ANSWERS!” Raquel says, her rage overcoming her mind. “You want answers? Fine.” Liam says. He holds out his hand and a small flame sits in it, the red and orange flickering slightly. Raquel's eyes widen, ad her hand meets her hips, where her gun holster is. She pulls her pistol out of it, and aims in at Liam. Marie and Natalie both scream, and Liam's fire goes out. “WHAT?! You never said you were a cop!” Marie says. “How did you do that?” Raquel says, gesturing the tip of her gun at Liam's hand. “I just can.” “Bullshit. How did you do it?” She says, her simple pleading tone when she was talking with Marie is long gone. Her police officer, authoritative tone takes its place. “Raquel, please.” “I'm not Raquel, I'm an officer of the law. Tell me how you did that.” She says, edging her gun closer to Liam's heart. “Please, it's true.” Raquel shakes her head. “You did something in that fire. Did you start it?” She says, her heart racing. “No! It's what we do, we help people!” He says, gesturing to Louis and himself. “Can you do that?” She says, turning her gun to face Louis. His hands go up in the air. “No! It's just me, please!” Liam screams, grabbing her arm. As she starts to pull the trigger, a shock, a pulse of energy floods her veins, her gun falling out of her hands and hitting the floor, blackness overcoming her eyes.

 

What did they say?” “They are on their way over.” “Did you know she had the gun on her?” “No.” “Hell, I didn't know she was a cop. Louis, must we keep her tied up?” Raquel stirs, but feels something restraining her. Opening her eyes, she sees that her arms and legs are tied up with scarfs. Looking straight in front of her, she sees Liam, staring at her with mournful eyes. “I'm sorry.” He says. “You should be.” She responds, tugging at her bound wrists. “Please, just let me explain!” He says, standing up and reaching towards her. She looks up at him, no emotion shown on her face. Liam takes this as a sign to talk. “The reason you passed out was because Louis shocked you. That's what the man in black did to him, and that was why you were here. We tied you up because I know you could take us out in a heartbeat. You wanted an explanation for my fire. I'll give you one. When I was 6 months old, the man in black broke into my house. He set me in the fireplace and turned it on. My mother came into the room as he took me out. She saw him and he vanished right after setting me back into my crib. Ever since then, I've had these powers. When I hit 12, I started working on managing them better. One day, at school, I got into a fight. That was a day when my temper beat my self control. I almost set a boy alight, and was called a freak ever since.” Liam looks down at his hands. Raquel follows him. He is passing a little ball of fire in between his fingers. With a snap, it's out. “I've been able to touch fire, feel it, control it. I can put it out just as easily as start it. That's what I did at the fire last weekend.” He and Raquel sit in silence for a few moments, him looking at her face, her looking at his hands. “I'm not going to hurt you, I swear.” His voice is low, but he is pleading. “The man in black mentioned something about weaknesses. He said I'm...” She trails off, finding it a little embarrassing. “He said I'm your weakness. He said he had to kill me to get to you.” She and Liam sit in another silence, but this time, it's awkward, and tension hangs heavy in the air. “Let's ignore that. What else did he say?” “Nothing.” Raquel knew she wasn't going to be able to tell Liam about the man in black knowing about her sister, or else she would burst into tears. How would it look, going from a bad ass who was ready to shoot someone to a weepy, emotional girl? It wouldn't be good, and besides, no one can know about her. “Can you untie me now?” Raquel says, feeling the scarves cut into her wrists. “OH! Yeah, sorry.” Liam stands up and with a bouncy feeling in his step, he goes to the back of the chair and unties her hands. As he yanks the scarf from her wrists, Raquel leans over to untie the scarf around her feet. As she stands up, she finds herself face to face with Liam. Her breath hitches in her throat as she stares into his eyes, inches away from hers. She looks away and backs into the chair. Behind Liam, someone clears their throat. Looking behind Liam, Raquel sees Marie and Louis staring at them, standing in the doorway to the kitchen. “Hey, guys.” Raquel says weakly. Louis has to contain himself to not burst out laughing. Thankfully, there is a knock at the door. “Thank god. It's the boys.” Liam says, walking over to the door and opening it. A short blonde, a tall brunette, and a dark-toned figure stand in the doorway. Raquel recognizes them from the fire. “Raquel, this is Niall, Harry, and Zayn, guys, this is Raquel.” The boys stare Raquel down for a moment, then Niall, the blonde, speaks. “Well, aren't you attractive when you aren't covered in ash and burning.” Raquel feels her cheeks flush and resists the urge to walk up to the obvious Irishman and punch him. A door from behind Raquel opens, and she turns her head to the sound. Natalie walks out of a bathroom and stops at the sight of an untied Raquel and 3 new boys in the flat. “Did I miss something?” She asked Raquel. “No, just the introduction of these three.” Raquel replied, pointing her thumb at Niall, Harry, and Zayn. Natalie finds herself looking at them. First Niall, then Zayn, then... Natalie gasps. “Harry?!”
