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.


16. Special Days with Louis

Autumn's POV:

Well today is Saturday and Louis is taking me out to the mall. Sarah has been sick since Tuesday coming in and out of it, so she stayed home all week. This week Harry, Liam, Zayn, and Niall have been taking me to school and playing with me after since Louis has been taking care of Sarah so he decided that he got some time with me.

"Are you ready my lady?" He asked me as he opened the door for me. I nodded my head and jumped out. He picked me up and carried me into the mall complex. We went to all kinds of toy stores and played with all the toys eventually buying a few. Afterwards Louis took me to go buy some new clothes. We got 6 new dresses, 3 new shirts, 2 new pairs of pants, and a new skirt. Then we walked over to the shoes section and got a pair of sneakers, a pair of boots, and a pair of nice shoes.

After we had bought some clothes for Autumn too at Sarah's request, we went to go get ice cream. He got Oreo and I got chocolate.

“So Autumn, I need to talk to you,” Louis said as he finished his ice cream. I nodded, letting him know to go on. “You already know that Sarah is going to ask for you and Lil to live with her right?” I nodded again. “Well, Niall, Lexi, Harry, Liam, Zayn, and I are going on tour for my band which means we will be gone for three months. Sarah wanted you to finish school though and we don’t have enough room on the tour bus so Sarah, you, and Lilliana are going to live with my mum and four sisters while we are gone, is that okay?”

“Yes!” I screamed. I knew that we were going to miss him while he was away, Sarah especially, but I also knew that this was the next best thing. I was so excited to meet his sisters and mum.


Sarah’s POV:

I heard Louis’ car pull up and saw Autumn skip up the driveway with Louis on her trail with 5 bags.

“SARAH!” Autumn called to me, not knowing where I was in the house. I was in the living room talking to Liam so I yelled out back to her, “I’M IN THE LIVING ROOM!”

“Sarah! We are going to live with Louis’ mum! And his sisters! Are you excited? I’m excited!” she exclaimed.

“I am so excited A! We are leaving exactly a week from today if you are allowed to live with me,” I responded. She leaned over to hug me and that’s when I saw Louis over her shoulder who was at the door. The bags were at his feet and he was smiling at us. “So Autumn, what did you guys do today?”

She ran over to Louis and pulled him and the bags over to me and Liam before answering. “Well, first we went to the toy store and Louis bought almost half the store for me! Then we went to the clothes store and he bought me some new clothes and shoes,” she told me as she pulled items out of the bag. “After, we went to get Lilliana some new clothes too. Then we went to go get ice cream and Louis told me about going to live with his family.”

“Sounds like you had a great time!” I said as she bounced up and down in my lap.

“You know Autumn, Harry, Niall, Lexi, Zayn, Lilianna and I would love to see you in your new clothes! Do you want to have a fashion show for us?” Liam asked giving me and Louis some time to talk.

Louis turned to me and smiled wide. “I had a lot of fun with her today, Sarah. She seems okay with the whole moving thing; are you?”

I nodded my head. “Oh yes. As far away from her as I can get, the better it will be,” I said with confidence. “I am going to miss you though,” I said timidly.

He wrapped his arms around me tightly and let me lean on his chest. Just sitting there in his arms, breathing in his cologne, made me feel safe and comfortable. Louis was the first to break the silence. "Sarah, I know that our friends and my family know that we are a thing, but where do you want the fans to stand on it? Should they know about us? It could get hard, me being in One Direction and all. You are going to get some hate and I can't stop that, but I won't let that break us apart. So what do you say Sarah? Can we go public?"

I nodded my head slowly at first, and then got progressively faster.

"Thank you Sarah!" He said, leaning over and kissing me. "Please let me know if the hate gets to much or if it gets to hard and I will try to fix it. Okay?" He said after we pulled apart, my head resting in his hands.

"Okay, I promise."

"Why don't we go out tonight and let the world know. We can also enjoy one more night to ourselves without the pressure of tour or the court case on our minds."

I nodded my head up and down, "I'd like that."

"Great. Wear something fancy!" He said disappearing from the room.

I walked into the back room to see Autumn modeling some really cute black leggings with a purple and pink striped top. I sat down next to Lexi, clapping for Autumn like the others were doing. When she was gone to change, I turned to Lexi and asked, "Hey, Louis and I are going on a date tonight. I was wondering if you could help me get ready since he asked me to dress fancy and that is most definitely your department, not mine."

"I'd love to!" She said while clapping her hands.

"Anyone want to babysit my sisters while we're out?" I asked, already knowing the answer. Sure enough, all of them, including Lexi, raised their hands. "Thanks guys, it means a lot," I thanked them.

"Last outfit!" Autumn called out while walking through the door. It was an adorable blue and white checkered dress with cowgirl boots to match the brown belt and cowgirl hat.

"Aw Autumn you look adorable! Give me a twirl," I said twirling my finger. She did as I asked, giggling the whole time. When she was done she went back and changed into what she was wearing before. When she came back out I told her about my plans tonight. "You get to stay with the boys and Lexi. Sound good?"

"Mmhm. You have fun!" She told me as I left the room with Lexi hot on my heels.

Louis had insisted he take me shopping yesterday, so I have a whole new wardrobe in Louis' closet. "Hey Lexi, come with me. Louis' in the shower, but we can still go in to get my clothes and stuff." She nodded and followed me into the bedroom then the closet.

I picked out my new strapless hi-lo dress that was red on the bottom and glitter-gold on the top. Lexi paired it with a pair of glitter-gold heels, golden dangling earrings, and a golden clutch. My fingers were already the same color as the red in the dress, and we decided to straighten my hair, then do an infinity braid and to finish off the look with some gold eye shadow.

After I had put everything on and Lexi had fixed my hair and make-up, I went downstairs to see Louis waiting. He was in black dress pants and a white shirt with a black blazer. He looked me up and down slowly, and when he made eye contact with me he smiled. "You look amazing tonight Sarah. Really beautiful."

I blushed at his comment. He laughed and grabbed my hand, leading me out the door.


Louis' POV:

I pulled up into the parking lot of the Italian restaurant we were eating at and quickly stepped out of the car. I made my way over to Sarah's side and opened the door for her. I took her hand and led her into the restaurant. She looked around, taking in her surroundings while I could only take in her. She was just so beautiful; style and personality wise. I couldn't ask for anyone better. I took in a deep breath before squeezing her hand as the waitress lead us to our table. We sat down and ordered our drinks before she went away.

"So Sarah, how is school going? Are you nervous for switching schools?" I asked her, showing my bad conversationalist skills. It's okay though, because I know she will carry the conversation. Check off another thing I love about her.

"Well, at least I'll get a new start. I mean, maybe there won't be as many bullies there. It will be weird going back to school period though after spending two weeks out of school, one of which was spent in bed with you," she said. "But I guess it will be good."

"Good, I'm glad you're being optimistic about it!" I laughed and she laughed along with me. That's when the waitress came up to us again and asked us for our orders. We gave them to her and continued talking about everything. Mostly my life before now since I had already heard her story.


I pulled up into the drive way around 11 o'clock and went over to Sarah's door to open it for her. She stepped out looking as beautiful as when she stepped in. I lead her upstairs where she immediately went into the bathroom to change and take off her make-up. I got in my pajama pants but left my shirt off because it was a little hot in my room. Sarah walked out of the bathroom after getting ready and climbed into the bed, making her way closer to me. She snuggled up next to me as I wrapped my arms around her. "Thank you Louis for tonight. It was really special and a lot of fun," she said, her voice slurred from sleepiness.

"Oh course love! I had a lot of fun too. But I always have fun with you. Now go to sleep. It's been a long day. Goodnight baby," I said, hearing light snores in return. I kissed the back of her neck before burying my head in her shoulder and falling asleep.
