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.


14. Liall and Karry

Sarah’s POV:

It was about 4 o’clock when Louis woke back up. “How’d you sleep Louis?” I asked him as he sat up and stretched.

“Really good knowing you were going to be here when I woke up,” he said as he kissed my check. I blushed and looked down. Yup, he was definitely too good for me. I sat up too and scooted over closer to him and leaned my head on his chest. I was still tired, but if I went to sleep now I’d be up all night. He put his arms around me from behind and moved so we were lying down again. I flipped over so I was facing him and he kissed my forehead. We sat in a comfortable silence for a while before Louis’ phone rang and he had to answer it.

"Hey Harry. Ya she's better. Umm sure let me ask Sarah first though." He leaned over to me and covered the microphone to his phone so Harry couldn't hear us. "The boys want to know if the girls, Lexi, and you want to go to dinner somewhere, if you're feeling up to it?"

I nodded in response. "Yes please, I'd like that."

He smiled at me and went back to Harry. "Yup we are in. Nando's? Okay see you there at 5? Sounds good, thanks mate." He hung up the phone and made his way back over to me. "Are you sure you're up to it? I don't want to take you out if you are going to get sick again," he said, his voice filled with concern.

"I'll be okay. I have managed to keep down my breakfast and lunch today so I think I'll be fine," I said giggling at the end.

"Okay, well the boys have Lilliana and we are going take Lexi and Autumn with us so be ready in 45 minutes, okay? That's when Lexi said she would be here with Autumn," he said getting up and offering me a hand. I nodded and walked into his bathroom to shower and change.


We were in the car on the way to Nando's to meet the boys. Autumn was in the back seat next to Lexi and I was sitting in the front with Louis driving. I turned around and looked at Autumn. "How was school today, A?"

"It was good. Ms. Maxton told me that I'm a really good speller!" She exclaimed.

"Awwwwww Autumn I'm so happy for you! What about you Lexi?"

She shrugged and looked at me. "Well, I had to deal with the fact that my best friend was at home being served upon by her boyfriend while I was stuck in school listening to Mr. Smith go on about why we are all going to die in 30 years due to global warming. Other than that it was beautiful," she replied sarcastically.

"Aw don't be snippy. You're going to see Niall in a couple of minutes don't forget," I said sticking my tongue out at her. She returned the gesture as Louis laughed.


We walked into Nando's and went straight to the back. Louis and I sat on either side of Autumn and Lilliana and Lexi took a seat next to Niall. Harry, Liam, and Zayn were sitting next to Niall. We ordered and went straight to talking to each other about our days.

"What did you do at school Autumn?" Harry asked as the boys leaned in to hear her.

"I learned how to add numbers to make 10!" She said.

"That's great!" Liam said back enthusiastically and Zayn and Niall nodded in agreement.

"What did you guys do with Lilliana?" I asked them.

"Oh we went to the park and then went to get her new shoes because we got her other ones dirty. And then we had to go get ice cream because Niall was whining about it for ages," Zayn said smirking at Niall. Niall just pouted in response and Lexi laughed.

"What did you do today Lexi?" Niall asked once he had gotten over the ice cream thing.

"Went to school, did work, and went home. I lead a pretty boring life," she told him getting a laugh from everybody.

"What about you and Louis, Sarah?" Liam asked as he looked between the two of us.

"Oh ya know we watched movies and random TV shows and slept the whole day. Oh and Louis made pancakes for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch," I replied honestly.

"Wow you guys are boring," Harry said dragging out the 'r'.

"What did you expect? I was sick!" I exclaimed, maybe a little too loudly. Louis looked at me and laughed. I just smiled back.

We got our food and ate quickly. I couldn't help but realize that Harry kept looking at our waitress who I will admit, was pretty hot. Way prettier than I will ever be anyway. Once we got up, Harry went over to pay and came back with a huge grin covering his face, showing his cheeky dimples. "So, what's her name?" Zayn teased.

"Katie," he said looking down at his shoes blushing.

"Awwwwww Harry got a girlfriend! Harry got a girlfriend!" We started chanting as we left the restaurant and made our way to our cars which were taking us back to the boy's place. Lexi went with the boys this time though and Louis and I took my sisters who fell asleep before we even pulled out of the parking lot.

Louis reached one hand over and put it on my knee. "So Harry and Katie and Niall and Lexi, huh?"

I shot him a confused glance. "Niall and Lexi? What?" I asked, my confusion easily shown on my face.

"Come on Sarah, don't pretend you didn't see the way he was looking at her. I bet you 10 pounds he will ask her out before she leaves tonight."

"You're on!" I said back laughing. Louis joined in with me and we laughed and talked about everything and anything until we got back home.


Niall's POV:

Well, this is it. I'm going to ask out Lexi.

All the boys, Lexi, Sarah, and I were playing Truth or Dare since Autumn and Lilliana were sleeping upstairs. Zayn was sitting next to Harry who was sitting next to Liam who was on my left. On my right was Lexi who was next to Sarah who was leaning on Louis.

"Niall, truth or dare?" Zayn asked me.

"Dare," I said confidently back. I had worked it our with him earlier on what my dare was going to be.

"I dare you to..." He paused pretending to think about it. "Kiss Lexi!" He finished.

I turned to look at her and she turned bright red. She was so adorable. I started leaning in and she closed the gap and kissed me back. As we pulled away she smiled at me and I smiled back, intertwining my hand with her's. "Lexi, will you be my girlfriend?"

She looked up at me shocked. "Y-yes," she said and I pecked her on the cheek one more time before we continued the game. I heard Sarah sigh and when I looked up at her saw her get out her wallet.

"Fine! You win," she said as she slapped 10 pounds into Louis' hand and threw her hands up in surrender.

"Just admit that I'm the best," he said as he wrapped his arms around her and kissed her cheek.

"You are the best," she said looking at him before they returned to their original position.

"Hold on, did you guys bet on them?" Harry asked as the reality of what just went down hit me.

The both nodded and giggled. "And he won," Sarah said sounding defeated. He tickled her stomach and she rested her head on his shoulder when he finished.

I laughed and squeezed Lexi's hand and looked down at her. Finally, I was able to call her the one thing I have wanted to call her since I met her. I was able to call her mine.

We finished the game and turned on a movie, Peter Pan at the request of Liam, Louis, Sarah, and Lexi. Louis and Sarah snuggled up close together and Lexi and I did the same. In the couch between us were Liam, Harry, and Zayn. "I'm feeling a little left out right now," Zayn said making us all laugh. It was about 11 o'clock by the time it finally got started and we all fell asleep on our places on the couch before it ended.
