9. ~Chapter 8~

I stood there in shock, not being able to run, not being able to speak. I was frozen.

"This is the wrong gun! I told you not to bring me this.. I warned you." Carson said angry at the poor guy.

"I'm sorry! I couldn't get the right one! I'll do anything. Please don't.." The guy said scared.

At that point I heard a gunshot. I kept telling myself to run.. To get away from here.. But I couldn't.

"Hey!" Carson screamed at me.

He started running towards me. My brain finally decided to function properly, so I started running. I ran as fast as I could. All those years of softball paid off I thought, but I was wrong. I was fast.. But not fast enough. Nothing was enough. He picked me up and put his hand over my mouth. I tried to scream but even if I could, Nobody would hear me. I fought with all I had but nothing worked. Horrible thoughts raced through my head.

I looked up at him and at that moment he hit me. He punched, he kicked, he did everything he possibly could to hurt me. I kept thinking, I'm gonna die. I'm never gonna go to college, I'm never gonna get married, I'm never gonna start a family. I'm going to die here. The last thing I remember is Carson looking at me with this.. smirk, before I blacked out.

Emma's p.o.v.

I woke up at around 7 in the morning. I looked around and everyone else is asleep. I ran to Autumn's room to see if she was there, but she wasn't. I ran back to the living room and woke everybody else up.

"Everybody check your phones. She never came back." I said in tears.

Everybody checked including me. I looked and saw a text from Carson.

"Oh no.." I said reading the text.

Everybody raced over to me. Jamie explained to them who Carson was and what he did.

"What does it say!?" Jamie yelled.

From: Carson

Hey Emma! We haven't talked in a while. Guess what!? I'm in London. Yeah.. I heard you guys are friends with that boyband. And I know they have lots of money. And I just so happen to have Autumn here with me! But she won't be for long if you don't get me $500,000. Oh and it has to be by 10am or else I'll have no other choice than to kill her. Bye love! -Carson.

I read it out loud and everybody freaked out. I looked at the other text he sent me and it gave me the address.

"We need to call the cops!" Niall yelled.

"I'll call!" Zayn yelled running to his cell phone, and dialing the number.

"This is all my fault.." Jamie whispered crying while Liam hugged her.

"Shhh, it'll be okay." Liam said comforting her.

Autumn's p.o.v.

I woke up on the cold, hard floor. I looked around, not knowing where I was. I flinched when I sat up from all the pain I was in. I looked at my arms and my legs and saw bruises and dry blood. I felt my forehead and looked at my finger. Great I'm still bleeding, I thought.

I felt my stomach, instantly knowing I had broken ribs. I heard footsteps coming down the steps and then Carson appeared.

"Nice to see your awake." He said smiling at me making me mad. "You don't look so good." He said bending down to my level looking at all my cuts and bruises.

"Yeah cause you-" I started to yell but he cut me off.

"Hey, hey, hey! Drop your attitude. I could kill you now if I wanted to!" Carson said.

I shut up not wanting that to happen. I just sat there, in so much pain. Carson went back upstairs. All I could do was cry.. Even if he doesn't kill me, I might just die from loss of blood. I looked around looking for a door or a window but there was nothing. I got up wobbling and holding my stomach. I creeped up the stairs and saw the door that led upstairs. I tried to open it but it was locked. I sat back down slowly.. Praying that everything would be okay.

Jamie's p.o.v.

Zayn called the emergency number and the lady said cops were on their way.

"C'mon lets go! I'll drive!" I yelled while we all ran out to my car. I started driving as fast as I could knowing I wouldn't get pulled over.

Everybody was crammed in the backseat. I was trying my best not to cry. I wanted to though. I wanted to just cry and cry and cry but I know I needed to be strong. Knowing Autumn she'd have an attitude or say something she shouldn't to make him mad.

I thought about Carson. How me, Emma, Autumn, and Carson were all friends. How he seemed so nice and sweet.. But he turned out to be a cheater.. And a crazy person! I always knew something was off about him.

Autumn's p.o.v.

I sat there.. Still. I could feel myself getting weaker and weaker every second. I was in so much pain.. I started thinking about dying to get away from all the pain, but then I heard the loud sirens of cop cars, and an ambulance. I finally smiled for this first time in what seemed like forever.. Thinking this might be the end.

All of a sudden Carson came running down the stairs snapping me out of my thoughts. He grabbed me holding me up and pretty much dragging me up the stairs cause it was hard to walk. He had his gun in his hand. He opened the front door and walked out holding me up next to him with the head of his gun on my temple.

I looked and saw all the sad, worried, and scared expressions of my friends. I completely zoned out. I looked at Niall who made direct eye contact with me. I gave him a slight smile to let him know that no matter what happens.. It'll all be okay.

The cops were telling Carson to put down the gun and let me go.. But he just kept shaking his head and asking for the money.

"I'm gonna shoot her if you don't leave!" Carson yelled.

I couldn't hold myself up any more, even though Carson was pretty much holding me. My legs gave out and I started falling. Carson shot missing me by less than an inch. I heard another gun shot and saw Carson fall. It's like everything is in slow motion. I got put on a stretcher and put in the ambulance. Emma got in cause only one person could go in the ambulance with me. I looked over at her and saw her crying. I tried to speak but it barely came out as I whisper. "Everything will be okay.."

She just nodded and we got to the hospital. They rushed me inside and Emma had to stay in the waiting room. I could barely keep my eyes open.

Emma's p.o.v.

I sat in the waiting room, along with Jamie and the guys who just got here. WHY CARSON! Why do you hate us?! I started to cry, I couldn't hold it in anymore. God! What is wrong with him! I was so mad. I seriously almost went to the police station and tore his head off. Autumn is in INTENSIVE CARE!

Harry came over and sat by me, giving me a hug and rubbing circles on my back. I can't stop crying. It was silent. Every once in a while you'd hear someone sniffle or take a deep breath in to keep from crying. A nurse came out looking at us with a sad expression.

"I hate having to tell you this.. But Autumn is in a a coma." The nurse said with shaky breaths. "I'm so sorry." She said sincerely.

At this point I cried more than I ever have in my life. I hugged Harry so tight, as if my life depended on it.

"We're not sure when she'll wake up.. It could be days.. It could be months." The nurse said.

"Okay. Thank you." Liam said to the nurse.

"You can go in and see her if you'd like.. Only 2 at a time." The nurse left handing us a paper with her room number on it. We walked down the long, silent hallway till we got outside her door.

"Who first?" Zayn asked.

"Me and Jamie." I said with tears in my eyes.

Everyone agreed and me and Jamie walked in her room.

We walked over to her where she was. I looked at her and she looked horrible. She had bandages everywhere and an IV in her arm. She looked better than she did before though.. All the blood was cleaned up. But she had a huge bruise across her face and her arm. I guess she bumped her head and she fainted so now she is In a coma.

"I wonder if she can hear us.." I said to Jamie.

"I don't know.. Maybe." She replied

We just sat there talking to her for a while. We probably looked like idiots, but I don't care what anyone thought at this point. The doctor walked in and asked us to leave so he can check on her. We walked out of the room to find the guys sitting on the bench in the hallway. We sat down on the other bench across from them. The doctor came out a couple minutes later.

"We're not sure how long it'll be until she wakes up." The doctor said.

We nodded and sat there as the doctor walked away. Zayn and Louis walked in Autumn's room. Harry came over and sat by me and he put his arm around me. I hate how people think all this bad stuff about him. He's the complete opposite. I really think I'm falling for this boy.

Louis and Zayn came out and Liam and Harry walked in. I glanced over at Jamie who was sitting there staring blankly at the wall.

"Jamie.. She'll be okay." I said to her.

"No Emma.. This is all my fault. If I wouldn't have said all that to her she wouldn't have left." Jamie said.

"She was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.. It's okay."

"We need to call her parents." Jamie said to me freaking out.

"Calm down.. I already did. They'll be here in the morning."


Liam and Harry walked out and Niall was the only one left. He stood up and hesitated to go in. He was about to go in but Jamie stopped him.

"I'm really sorry Niall." Jamie said.

Niall just nodded and walked inside. We sat there in silence once again. It was starting to get really late.

Niall's p.o.v.

I looked at Autumn. She looked terrible.. I wanted to break down and cry but I didn't want to in front of the others. I thought about her. I haven't known her that long but I feel like I've known her my whole life. It was probably the worst feeling I've ever had not knowing when she'd wake up. Not knowing when the next time you'd hear her voice or laugh. Or the next time you'd see her eyes and face back to her normal shade and not lifeless. Right now, I couldn't help it. I started crying my eyes out.
