Sarah is 18, but her life is far from any other high school senior's. Her mother died when she was 16; her father became a drug addict, smoker, alcoholic, and Sarah's worst nightmare. Why? Well, he abuses her.

Sarah doesn't tell anyone though, not even her best (and only) friend Lexi because her father told her that he would hurt her little sisters that her mother left her to raise when it became clear her father wouldn't be able to.

Sarah goes to work one day expecting it to be like every other day. Little does she know she is in for one heck of a surprise.


28. A Better Afternoon

We pulled up to the Tomlinson house and the twins immediately ran inside with Autumn right behind them.  The two older girls followed leaving me and Louis outside with Lilliana.  He grabbed my bag and I grabbed my sister before we intertwined hands and walked up the brick walkway.  We walked in the door and he sat my bag down at the table where Fizzy and Lottie were doing their homework. He gently kissed my cheek and whispered, “Don’t forget our deal,” while grabbing Lilliana and walking up the stairs.
I smiled to myself and sat down, ready to tackle these geometry problems with Louis’ promise in my mind.
“Done!” I called out as I packed up my math paper.
“Good!  Now get your butt in here Sarah!”  I giggled at Louis’ direct approach.
“You’re lucky I love you Lou,” I smiled as I sat next to him on the couch.
“Ya, I know I am,” he responded wrapping his arm around me and pressing play on the remote.  I cuddled up to his warm body under the blanket that covered us.  I really was lucky to have him.
Louis’ POV:
My sisters had agreed to give us the night alone so I was taking full advantage of it.  Sarah was wrapped up in my arms and we were watching movie after movie.  We were just about to start The Avengers when I looked down.  The smile on Sarah’s face made it clear she was the happiest she has been in a long time.  She was so cute just sitting there that I couldn’t resist, I just kissed her.  Right then and there on my couch.  Her fingers were running through my hair as my hands found a place on her cheeks, bringing her closer to me as I deepened the kiss.

We were full on snogging when I hear giggles from the door.  We broke the kiss and turned our attention to the doorway.  “What are you doing out there Phoebe?” I asked the mysterious person.
“Dang it Phoebe, you gave us away.  I knew we shouldn’t have brought you!”  Fizzy’s voice, no doubt.  Sarah silently laughed as she looked up to me.  I knew what she was thinking: ‘What should we do?’  I put my finger to my lips and quietly crept off of the couch.
“Wait, guys, there isn’t any noise.  Maybe they didn’t hear us,” I heard Lottie say.
I tiptoed to the door and hear breathing through the thin wood.  I opened the door ever so slightly and, “BOO!”
All five girls screamed as stood there laughing.  As soon as they saw Sarah sitting on the couch, that’s immediately where they ran.  Autumn was on Sarah’s lap with Daisy and Fizzy on her right and Phoebe and Lottie on her left.  “Louis, that was mean!”  Sarah scolded me, but I could hear a tinge of laughter in her voice. 
I came over once I had controlled my laughter and wrapped my arms around the group of giggling girls.  “I love you girls!” I proclaimed.
My mum came in laughing.  Lilliana, who was squirming in her arms, finally got out of her grasp and came over to us.  “Come here Lilli,” I told her as I picked her up and helped put her in the pile.  I looked to Sarah and she looked at the clock before nodding.  “Okay guys you can watch one movie with us before bed.  But only one!”  My mum came over to us and sat down on the big couch that everyone else was on.  I pulled Sarah closer to me before after pressing play on the main menu.  She cuddled in closer to me and focused on the screen in front of her.  I smiled to myself as I mindlessly paid attention to the movie; my brain more focused on making sure my family was safe.

(Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you got everything you wanted.  This is a filler chapter.  I'm so sorry that it isn't very good.  But I know where I want it to go and don't worry.  I know there hasn't been much drama recently but there will be a lot of it later so keep reading lovelies! :))
