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.


5. This Can't Be Real

Sarah’s POV:

No way.  That did not just happen.  I stayed smiling the rest of my shift, but it was no longer forced.  I called Lexi as soon as I clocked out.  She picked up on the second ring.

“I HAVE MAYBE THE MOST EXCITING NEWS IN THE HISTORY OF EVER!” I shouted down the line.  “I’LL TELL YOU AS SOON AS I GET HOME.  SEE YOU IN FIVE!”  I jumped up and down a little and then calmly made my way out the door and into the chilly November air.

Lexi was waiting outside for me when I got home.  As soon as she saw me she jumped up and ran down the drive way.  "TELL ME TELL ME TELL ME!" She screamed.

"Okay okay," I responded calmly.  "So you know how One Direction's break started today?" Lexi nodded her head enthusiastically; she was just as big of a directioner as I was.  "Well," I continued.  "Louis was at McDonalds this morning and when he saw me he stared for a while.  When he finally snapped out of it, he asked me for my phone and put his contact in it.  Then he scribbled something on his receipt," as I was talking I pulled out the receipt he gave me.  Lexi and I both leaned over as read out loud what he had written.

"Sarah, I hope we can see each other again soon.  I have by now followed you on twitter (if I can find you) and I have added my contact in your phone.  Please call me tonight.  Much love, Louis"

Lexi and I stared at each other as I pulled out my phone and launched the twitter app.  Sure enough, I had one new follower, @Louis_Tomlinson.  I had a new DM from him too.  It said, "Hello love.  It's Louis, the one you just gave breakfast too.  Thanks again for that by the way.  Anyway, I was hoping that you would call me later today or tonight, (I put my number in your phone).  Talk to you soon, Louis."

“Sarah, you have Louis Tomlinson’s number,” Lexi stated slowly, probably trying to convince herself this was real.  I don’t blame her, I was trying to too.

I checked my contacts and found that I did have a new one, from Louis Tomlinson of all people.  I was slowly coming to the realization that this was reality.

“Hello!  Earth to Sarah!” Lexi said while waving her hand in my face.  “When did this happen?”

“Ummm, about 4 hours ago, why?”

“Well he is probably waiting for you to call him.  If it’s been that long.  Let’s go inside and do it,” she told me.  “Plus, Lilliana is asleep and Autumn is watching a movie so you won’t be distracted.  We can do it in my room, come on.”

I was reluctantly pulled into the house and up the stairs, still zoned out.  This was real.
