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.


19. Bowling

Zayn’s POV:

Well Niall, Louis, and Harry had found girlfriends, all of whom they were planning on keeping. It was just Liam and I in the running now, however I had a strong feeling that Liam was hiding something from all of us.

Niall snaps me out of my daydream. “Oi Zayn!”

“Oh sorry I was just thinking. Yes?”

“Want to go bowling tonight with the rest of us?

“Sure, why not?” I ask sarcastically, earning myself a well-deserved glare from Niall.

“What’s wrong Mr. Snippy?” Louis asks. Apparently he has been here for this conversation too. I look around and find out that the entire room was filled with all the boys and their girlfriends, or in Louis’ case, girlfriends and daughters.

“Nothing, I was just thinking,” I reply honestly.

“Hey, is it okay if I bring someone tonight?” Liam adds.

“Umm, sure. I don’t see why not,” Harry says skeptically. A grin spreads across his face as he says, “As long as you tell us who it is.”

Just then we all hear a car door slam shut. “That must be her. I’ll get it,” Liam says disappearing. He reappears 3 minutes later with his arm around a girl. The whole room looks at each other surprised as he leads her back to his seat and sits her on his lap. “Guys, this is Liz, my girlfriend. We’ve been dating secretly for 4 months.”

Everyone sits there in a state of shock. How could Liam keep something like this from us for 4 months? “Good question, Zayn.” Oh no, must’ve said that out loud. “The answer to that wonderful question is that we didn’t know if it would even work out, and when it did we didn’t want anyone to know because of the fans. We didn’t think it would be good to let the whole world know.”

“Well now I feel really left out,” I said, flashing a puppy dog pout.

“You can be my boyfriend Zayn,” Autumn says as she comes over and hugs me.

“Aw thanks Autumn,” I say, returning the hug.

Everyone laughs at us as we all head to the cars: Niall, Lexi, Harry, Katie, Liam, and Liz in the van and me, Louis, Sarah, Autumn, and Lilliana in Louis’ car. “So we are going to go bowling, why?” I ask when we all get buckled in.

“Because Louis, Autumn, Lilliana, and I are leaving on Sunday, and you boys are leaving a week after that, so we thought we’d go out and do something together. Maybe even find you a girlfriend,” Sarah said smiling at me.

“Okay, sounds like a plan.”


Liam’s POV:

This was the first night Liz was going to meet the boys. We had gotten pretty serious within the past 4 months, and I think it was a good decision to finally let the boys in on our secret. Liz was chatting with Katie and Lexi about some new clothes store and Niall and Harry were talking about the new tour stage design. I was happy that the girls were getting along well and I know that Liz and Sarah will become fast friends.

Niall and Harry had been spending some time with their girlfriends who will be accompanying us on tour, as will mine, but Louis and Sarah have been inseparable. They spend all the time with each other, and the boys and I know not to try to interfere. It’s going to be really hard on both of them when they have to leave each other.

Zayn has been the full time babysitter. We all already decided to try to get him a girlfriend tonight. Fingers crossed.

We pulled up to the bowling alley and got out of our cars. I grabbed Liz’s hand as we walked inside. There were only two other groups here bowling, so we were okay. One was a group of middle aged men who were practicing for a bowling league and the other was a group of college-aged girls who were just out bowling.

We walked to our lane which was three over from the one with the girls bowling in it. We set up our teams: Autumn, Louis, Sarah, Liz, and I on one team (since Lilliana was too young to play) and Zayn, Niall, Lexi, Harry, and Katie. After that we started playing. As Liz and Sarah were talking about some movie that had recently come out, Louis and I were helping Autumn bowl. I used this time with Louis to my advantage. “Hey Louis, we should go talk to those girls and see if any are good for Zayn,” I said pointing to the group of girls.

“Yes, definitely. Let’s just help Autumn finish and then we can go.”

We finished off Autumn’s turn and then walked over to the girls. “Hello, we were wondering if any of you would like to meet our friend over there,” Louis said pointing towards Zayn.

A girl was shyly pushed up by her friends in the group. “Sure, I would. My name’s Isabel,” she said extending her hand for us to shake. “We are almost finished with this round. After we are I can come over to say hi.”

“That would be great, thank you,” I told her as we walked away. We walked back to our lane and saw Liz holding Lilliana while Sarah bowled. Wow, Liz and Sarah must have gotten pretty close. Sarah is very overprotective of her sisters. “Hey Liz,” I said sitting down next to her.

“Hey yourself,” she responded before turning back to Lilliana. Yes, Liz was getting along with the other girls and the boys just fine, and I couldn’t ask for more.


Sarah’s POV:

After I had bowled and gotten Lilliana from Liz so she could bowl, Louis sat down and patted the seat next to him. He pointed over at Zayn who was talking to some girl, and they looked to be hitting it off. “What did you do?” I asked, looking over at him throwing him an accusing face.

“Liam and I just worked our magic. Right Li? No need to thank us.” Liam smiled and nodded before continuing his frame.

“Good job hot shot. Now what?”

“Now it’s up to Zaynie to take what has been handed to him on a silver platter or not. And from the looks of them putting their numbers in each other’s phones, I would think it is safe to say he is taking it,” he said smirking.

“You may be a hot mess Louis, but at least you are my hot mess.”

He smiled and went to bowl his frame and then help Autumn with hers. I smiled and then took a picture of them throwing the ball together. I set it as my lock screen before tweeting it. “@Sarah_Kate: Aww! Love this, love them. @Louis_Tomlinson”

His phone dinged and he went to check it, seeing the tweet. He smiled at it before typing something. My phone then got a notification saying someone had tweeted me. “@Louis_Tomlinson: We love you tooooo! @Sarah_Kate”

I smiled at my phone then locked it and put it down on the table. I ran up to Louis and Autumn with Lilliana still in my arms and hugged them both. They hugged back and we stood there until we heard the shutter of someone’s phone camera go off. “Aww look at the happy little family!” Harry said, sending the picture to Louis who set it as his lock screen and to me who set it as my home page.

We smiled at each other before going back to finish our game.
