41. Saved, For Now...

Zayn wrapped his arm around me, holding Mackenzie in the same position on the opposite side of him. I leaned back, the rough bricks leaving little scratches on the back on my neck. I sighed and tried to calm my breathing as I heard heavy footsteps on wood, not too far away either. I elbowed Zayn in the side and beckoned for him and Mackenzie to move. As we rounded the house, I saw police cars turn onto Birch Street, lights flashing but sirens off. We waved our arms in the air, hoping they would see us from the driveway. They turned off their lights and accelerated down the road, toward us.

We ran up the driveway as the cars screeched to a stop, making sharp turns and blocking the driveway. The policemen jumped out of their cars, guns in hand, and ran p the driveway. "What does he look like?" One of them grunted. "Big, bald, bulky 30-year-old man." I whimpered. "He was in the back when we last saw him." Zayn said, his voice hoarse, matching his tear stained cheeks from crying. About a quarter of the men went around the house and Zayn, Mackenzie and I hastily led the others inside. We quietly, but quickly, made it to the stairs and I took the lead this time. I winced as the stairs creaked under my weight, but continued up, wanting to know that Niall and the others were in an okay condition.

An officer, a short woman with bright red hair, laid a hand on my shoulder and I let her pass me. She pushed open the door and peered inside. She motioned for us to follow her in, and I nervously took a step in the attic. I immediately spotted Niall, who was unconscious in the back coner, right where Zayn was. I rushed over and knelt next to him, cupping his face in my hand, whispering through my tears, "Niall, I'm here now. It's okay. Please wake up. Just for me baby. Please wake up." I repeated the last sentence quite a few times before I completely broke down and resting my head n his chest.

I listened to his heart beat, so quiet you almost couldn't hear it, and I hoped he wouldn't fade away. Officers surrounded each of the other boys, while another pair, the girl with the red hair and a slim man with greying hair, awkwardly watched me from the centre of the room. I got back on my knees and motioned for them to come closer. "Hello, I'm Officer Christina Ryes and this is my partner Officer John Dupius." She explained, jabbing a thumb at Officer John. I nodded and she continued, "Now I understand you know this man." She started, kneeling down next to me and putting one hand on my back, the other on Niall's shoulder.  "Yes. He's my boyfriend." I whimpered. "Well I hope you don't mind but I will need you to step back so that we can try and wake him. Alright?" She explained. I stood up and walked over to where Officer John was as Officer Christina took a bag of smelling salts out of her black vest.

"So this is the legendary boy band, One Direction, eh?" He asked, obviously trying to lighten the mood. "Yeah, this is them." I mumbled. "And you're Niall's girlfriend named..." He trailed off, not knowing my name. "Lizzy." I completed the sentence. "Ah, I see. Looks like Christina has gotten your boyfriend up." He nodded in Niall's direction. Niall's head was tilting from left to right as he mumbled something. "What's he saying?" I asked intensely. "Sounds like he's saying 'Libby' or something." Christina replied. "Looks like your cue." John said, but I had already dropped to the ground, saying, "Niall, I'm right here. Come on open your eyes, I'm right here." I paused, taking his hand then saying, "Niall, it's me. Come on, squeeze my hand if you can hear me. Come on Niall w-" I stopped as I felt our fingers intertwine and he lightly squeezed my hand.

"Lizzy..." He mumbled. His head bobbed around a little and his eyes fluttered open. I smiled and I whispered, "Niall thank God you're okay." He smiled and Christina and I helped untie him and stand him up. Once he was back on his feet, he wrapped his arms around my torso. I put my arms around his neck and he pulled me closer to him. I nuzzled my face into the crook of his neck and he pulled away a little, just enough to look down at me to kiss me. I pulled away from his embrace and he took my hand as Officer Christina and  Officer John led us down the stairs.
