47. She's Getting Worse / 3 Months Later

Sarah’s POV

It’s been 2 days since I woke up in Jason’s house. I haven’t left my room, not once, I have completely lost my appetite and I cry myself to sleep at night. As much as I try to forget about what happened, I just can’t, I’m scared. I haven’t told anyone about what happened because I’m really not ready to yet. Everyone has been really accepting about it but I can tell they are really worried.  I’m lying in bed and its 1:00pm, everyone is down stairs, I just don’t have the energy to get up. I must look like a total wreck. Come on Sarah, get up.

The memories quickly flash through my mind again and a tear escapes from my eye. Snap out of it Sarah it’s all over. You’re only making it worse for yourself. I sit up in bed and take a deep breath while wiping the tears away. I throw the quilt off myself and make my way into the bathroom. I close the bathroom door behind me and lock it before stepping in front of the mirror. Wow, I look horrible. The bruises are still clear on my face, my hair is an absolute mess. I slide the sleeve down off my shoulder revealing a whole trail of bruises, I filch as my hands run over them. I sigh and remove the rest of my clothes before switching the water on to the perfect temperature. I step into the shower and let the water run down my body, the pressure of the water is high, when it hits my skin it slightly hurts but is bearable. I quickly wash my hair before getting out and drying myself off. I wasn’t in any mood to blow dry my hair so I tied it up in a messy bun. I walked into my bedroom to get dressed. Although it’s hot today I want to wear jeans to cover up my bruises. I put my denim jeans on with my long sleeve white top with the shoulders cut out. I finish it off with a pair of my toms. I return to the bathroom. I really have to do something about the bruises on my face. I apply a small amount of foundation, it doesn’t completely cover the brusises but it makes them less noticeable. I grab my phone and sunnies off my bedside table before making my way down stairs. I can hear everyone talking down stairs. I quietly walk down the stairs and as I hear my name being brought up in conversation I stop to listen carefully.

“It’s getting ridiculous, it has been 2 days and she hasn’t left that room, we can’t just leave Sarah up there dealing with that pain” Louis says with an annoyed tone.

“She will come down when she is ready” Zayn says.

“But she is scaring me, it was like 2:30 in the morning and I woke up to her bawling her eyes out, I wrapped my arms around her and she flinched and shifted away” Liam says with a sniffle.

Is he crying?

“It’s okay Liam, everything will be okay” Liv says reassuring him.

I take a deep breath before I continue to walk down the stairs but making my steps more noticeable so they hear me coming down. I reach the bottom and make my way into the kitchen. As I enter all eyes are on me, what was I expecting, I have been in my room for the past couple of days.

“Good morning Hun” Liv says walking up to me a smile, I can tell she is trying her best not to over react about the situation.

“Morning” I says returning a small smile

“You look beautiful today” Liam says before walking up to me and placing a kiss on my lips, I couldn’t help but notice his eyes were slightly red.

“Thanks” I respond before making my way to the sink and getting a glass of water.

Everyone is still silent and all eyes are still on me. It looks like they have all seen a ghost.

“Do you want something to eat?” Niall says standing up with a bag of hot chips, which I assume they got for lunch.

“No thanks, I’m not hungry” I respond.

“Ohh” Niall says uncomfortably while sitting back down.

“Well…I’m going to go for a walk to get some things from the store, do you guys need anything?” I ask breaking their glares.

“Umm, tooth paste!” Louis says

“ice-cream, lots of ice cream” Liv says and everyone lets out a chuckle.

“Anything else?” I ask forcing a smile.

“Nah that’s all, do you want me to come with you?” Liv asks.

“Nah, I think I want to go alone” I respond and Liv nods giving me a smile.

I walk out of the kitchen grabbing my purse, sunnies and my phone and head for the front door. I open the front door and a warm breeze hits me. I make my way down the steps and start to walk to the store. As I make my way onto the main street I get a lot of stares from people, I was hoping no one noticed me but just my luck a small group of girls call my name. I turn around and they all rush to my direction. I do my best to keep a smile on my face. Luckily my sunnies are covering the bruises.

“Omg it’s really you! How’s things with Liam?” a blonde girl asks me getting her phone out.

“Yeah great” I respond nodding my head with a smile.

Luckily they are friendly, the last thing I need right now is having fans abuse me for being with Liam.

“Omg I can believe I’m actually talking to you, you’re absolutely beautiful, Liam is so lucky to have you” the brunette says.

“No I’m lucky to have him” I say smiling.

“Can I have a photo?” she asks kindly.

“Sure” I take her phone and take a quick photo before returning it to her and walking off saying goodbye to them.

“Tell Liam I love him!” the blonde one shouts and I turn around and give her a thumbs up.

I make my way into the store and grab a basket before making my way down the aisles. I grab the toothpaste and some moisturiser for myself. I make my way into the freezer section and roam the ice-cream flavours. There are so many. Liv’s favourite is strawberry so I get a tub of that. She said lots so I get another tub of chocolate and vanilla. That should last her for a couple of days. I make my way into the chip aisle and choose my favourite chips. Just before I grab a packet I get a message. I let out a sigh and place my basket on the floor before reaching in my back pocket for my phone. The message is from a number I haven’t seen before. I swipe my phone unlocking it and open the message

“Don’t leave a trail…. you might be followed!” the message reads.

I read it over and over again and my heart starts to beat faster and faster. What does that mean? Who is it from? ‘Don’t leave a trail, you might be followed’. Maybe it’s the wrong number. I quickly delete the message and place my phone back in my pocket. Seconds later I receive another message, I remove my phone and realise it’s from the same number.

 “You can run, but you can’t hide… Sarah” the message reads out again.

My heart stops. My phone falls out of my hands and I go dizzy. I quickly turn around sensing someone is behind me. My breathing gets faster and goose bumps roam across my body, I start to shake. They haven’t got the wrong number! They know my name. Who can it be? I pick up my phone off the floor before quickly turning around again sensing someone behind me. Jason! It has to be! Jason sent the message. How did he get my number? I quickly dial Liam’s number.

“Hello?” Liam answers the phone.

“Liam come picks me up now” I say with my phone shaking in my hands.

“Why what’s wrong Sarah?” he asks worried.

“I’m at the grocery store down the street, come now” I say before hanging up quickly

I rush outside the store leaving the basket where it was, occasionally turning my head sensing someone behind me. I rush up and down the foot path waiting for Liam to come. A huge sigh of relief rushed over me when his car pulled up in front of me. I immediately ran in closing the car door and locking it behind me.

“Sarah are you okay? What happened?” Liam asks with very concerned tone in his voice.

“Just drive….. Please” I say looking out the window.

“What’s wrong?” he asks again.

“Liam just pleases drive, now!” I respond slightly raising my voice but not meaning too.

He starts to drive back home. I open my phone and read the message again.

“Sarah you’re scaring me!” Liam says without looking at me.

“I’m fine okay!” I say shaking.

“Why are you shaking?” he asks as we drive up the drive way.

I unlock the door and step out running inside without answering his question. As I run inside Harry is already walking up the stairs. I rush past him and ignore him as he calls my name, I run straight into my bedroom slamming the door and locking it before rushing to the window closing it and locking it. Why me? I sit on the end of my bed and lift my hands arm as they are shaking uncomfortably.

“What happened Liam?” I hear Harry say from down stairs.

“I don’t know, she told me to pick her up and she was shaking and stuff” Liam says closing the door sounding confused and worried.

“What’s going on guys?” Liv says coming into the conversation.

“It’s Sarah!” Liam says.

“What about her?” Liv asks quickly.

“She is getting worse” Liam says.

I take a deep breath as tears start to stream down my face. If only I could find the words to tell them, I just can’t!


*3 Months Later*

Liv’s POV

3 months have passed and it has gone so quickly! Everything is going well in the house. My relationship with Harry just seems to be getting stronger as the days go by. I am 22 weeks pregnant at the moment and the pregnancy is going really well. Everyone is really excited about the baby’s arrival and surprisingly so are my parents. They took it much better than I expected they would especially after they found out from social media. Niall brang Kayleigh over to meet us all. She is so nice and absolutely gorgeous, she gets along really well with everyone in the house and she has been around a lot lately helping out with the baby. I am so glad to have my closest friends here to help along the way, the girls especially. Sarah, Perrie, El and Kayleigh have been life savers through this time, they have been trying to get me to follow my healthy eating plan but all I really pay attention to is Fridays. Ice-Cream! It fixes everything.

Everyone has been busy lately with the baby’s room, luckily we have a spare room in the house. The boys are painting the walls and us girls have been going crazy buying baby stuff for the room. The room is coming along really well actually despite the fact that we don’t know the babies gender yet. Everyone has their bets on the gender all set and ready, us girls think it a girl and the boys think it’s a boy, of course. I have been going for my monthly check-ups and luckily there haven’t been any problems along the way. Flowy skirts have literally been my best friend. They have been doing their best to cover up my bump. But it’s not like I have a choice because most of my pants don’t fit me anymore. My bump is getting bigger and so are my boobs, just to add in. Harry has been taking photos of my stomach every couple of weeks so we can watch it grow. I am so thankful to have him by my side, he has been so supportive with everything. He is my absolute everything, I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me. Things are going well between Liam and Sarah too, although Sarah has been really distant from everyone. Ever since that night she has been quiet and she isn’t as happy and bubbly as usual. She doesn’t want to talk about what happened that night with anyone, everyone accepts that but we are still extremely worried about her. We don’t talk about it in front of her but when we are alone me and the boys often talk about it amongst us. There is this one conversation that I had with the boys that has always stuck at the back of my mind…….


“I am so worried about her!” Liam says pacing up and down the Kitchen with his hands at the back of his head.

“I know, we all are Liam, we just need to give her some time, when she feels like it’s the right time to tell us, she will” I say hugging him trying to calm him down.

“Yes, the worst thing we can do right now is pressure her into telling us” Niall says as we all nod.

“But I swear to God if anyone laid their hands on my Sarah I will kill them” Liam says running his hands through his hair and slightly pulling at it.

“And we will help” Harry says and all the boys nod.

Our conversation was soon interrupted by Louis phone ringing.

“Hello?” Louis asks with a weird look on his face.

There was a pause before he continues.

“Yes this is him” he continues.

“OHH” he says with a confused expression on his face.

“Yess thanks for informing us, we will pick it up as soon as possible” he says before hanging up the phone.

“Who was it?” Zayn asks.

“It was the office at ET and they said a car under the redrestration of Sarah Rose Parker was left in the special guest car park” Louis says and everyone mouths drop.

“What? How did we not realise her car was still there when we left?” I say.

“Remember Paul drove the car out the front for us?” Niall says reminding me.


Everyone still questions that night. We try to bring it up but she always dodges the conversations. Her bruises have healed but she still flinches at any sudden movements, like when someone hugs her or jumps up excited. I try to think of what might have happened to her that made her like this. Who hated her so much to actually physically hurt her? Why would anyone do anything to anyone for that matter? It actually scares me to be honest. If this could happen to someone like Sarah who is normally very capable of protecting herself, what would happen to someone like me in that situation.

I really hope she starts to open up to me about what happened. I really don’t like seeing her hurt or upset and at the moment I really feel like there is nothing I can do to make it better.
