When The Lights Went Out

All Lexie could heard were the distant gun shots. All she could do was hope Lauren wasn't in the way of those bullets. Then, " BANG!" One loud gun shot one shot that would change her life forever. Who did this bullet bring into her life, and what secrets does he try so desperately to hide??????


12. A bad first impression

A/N:Hi guys sorry I haven't updated in a while it's been crazy at my house with holidays and stuff, so I made this one extra long enjoy.

Me and Harry walked back from the cliff edge in silence. When he had kissed I was taken so off guard that I ended up pushing him away. At that moment I was too stunned to realize that Harry was really hurt by what I did. We were nearly back to where the others were waiting or so Harry said. It was still really dark even though the clouds and moon where visible all I could see was the outline of Harry and the occasional flash of green when he looked back at me and his eyes reflected that moonlight.

I could feel the tension in the air as we walked. Looking at him now I really didn't know how I felt about him. He was suppose to be the bad guy, the jerk. But now I don't know. He did save my life but that didn't change what he had done. I guess for now I just have to stay neutral and see what happens. I know that at one point I did have a little crush on him but that was a lifetime ago. Before all this, before the whole world was plunged into darkness, before everything stopped working, and before I had to leave everything I knew behind.

We were almost back to camp when we heard a noise behind us. Before I could even breath I noticed a shadow collide with Harry's outline all I could heard was grunting and fists colliding with body. Eventually after a good couple of minutes I was able to pry the attacker off Harry. Once I did it dashed forward and out of my hands. I was about to go after him but before I could I heard Harry behind me. "Hold it Lauren. He a friend trust me."

Next thing I knew I felt a huge weight slam down on me and the cold metal of a knife press against my neck. "Now Louis don't you think that is a little excessive."

Then I heard an unfamiliar voice and felt the pressure from the knife decrease. "Who are you?"

"You mean you don't recognise my hypnotic voice." I felt, who I assumed to be Louis, get off me.

"Well I do recognise the sarcasm, Harry. I would assume that the little friend of yours wasn't your choice to be with."

"Well kinda, but I don't mind the company of a female," Harry retorted.

"Aaaahhhh I get it. Anyway who else are you with?"

I just sat there listening to the two of them. I was the strangest thing I had ever heard. One moment they were beating the crap out of each other the next they are talking like old friends. "Come on we were heading back there anyway."

"You would just take me to your group who may or may not be armed and have the possibility of me taking all of you out?"

"Ha! Oh Louis there is no way you could take us on and we were looking for you anyway so you just made our lives so much easier."

We started heading back toward the others. When we got there they had a real camp set up. There was a fire and they must have gone back for our supplies because there was a stack of backpacks. Of course Grace was sitting by the fire. I guess she really did decide to stay. When she saw Harry she just smiled and said, "So loverboy done having your little tantrum," I couldn't help but giggle a little. I think I could learn to like her.

"Ugg you aren't going to let me live that down, are you?" Harry complained.


Then Lexie, who was sitting next to Zayn, said, "Look who the cat dragged in, and they brought a present. PS Harry you do realize you have a busted lip." When Harry touched his lips his fingers came away red. Smooth Harry are you so oblivious that you don't even know you bleeding?

"Well if I was going to be a peace offering then I would never have come," Louis retorted.

"It's good to have you here Louis," Zayn said, "and Lauren good to have you back and in one piece."

"Ya that's a good point. Not that I don't appreciate the rescue Harry but why didn't all of you come help me?" I asked knowing some part of me really didn't want to know the answer though.

They all just looked at each other till Louis interrupted, "Well, love it looks like they didn't really care about what happened to you."

Lexie jumped to her feet, "That's not true. Lally you know that if we felt completely confident that we could save you then we would have charged in there no questions asked. Right?" Lexie argued.

Zayn stood up as well looking very annoyed and said, "That's right Lexie but after what Grace told us we just thought that we would end up committing suicide if we went. Actually Harry how did you get to Lauren, Grace said the place would be crawling with guards?"

"Um, really Zayn, I have no idea," Harry said with a smile.

"Well it was fun catching up and all, but Grace time to go your daddy it very worried," Louis said with an overwhelming amount of sarcasm.

Grace smiled and started to laugh. After a couple of seconds of confusion she said, "Yeah I ain't going back buddy."

"So Louis you work for the bandits?" Zayn asked.

"Yes and I was told to protect the sweet and annoying little Grace and well it happens to be more then I bargained for."

"Ya that's why he asked you to keep an eye on me, but I ain't leaving I have committed and I am not turning back." Grace snapped.

"Really are you serious?" Louis asked very surprised, and Grace just nodded, "Well then if you are leaving then so am I."

"What?" I said utterly shock. Why would he commit to this so quickly.

"Well you guys did say you were looking for me and I don't know why, but I'm here now so good job guys you found me."

"Well this made things a lot easier. Good job Grace I think we should keep you around." Zayn said with a smile and grace looking as if she had expected this all along.I was really annoyed having another newbie joining us, but maybe he will keep Grace in line. Oh well I might as well get used to this it going to happen more and more.
