I couldn't believe that my baby girl was taken. It had been two days and still no sign of her.
The gigs had to go on. No one knew about Lauren and me so fans wouldn't understand it.
The lads made sure that I only had to sing the things I had to and that I could be quiet when I hadn't. I tried to be myself but I couldn't. Every minute of every day my thoughts went to her. Where was she? Who was that idiot who took her? Why did he took her?
"Niall we have to go. We'll find her. Don't worry" Liam said and I nodded. We had to leave Ireland for our gig in England and the shows in the USA and Canada.
"Don't worry Niall. She's all over the internet. Everyone is searching for her. He can't get her out of the country. Ireland isn't that big and he'll be found" I knew that. But I was worried that he'd be found without my baby. Who was he? And why did he take her?
"But then my baby is here while I'm in America, more than ten hours away with an airplane! No way Liam! I can't leave now! Ireland isn't that big and if it have to I'll search myself. I don't mind how long it would take I have to find her back!" he shook his head and patted my shoulder.
"Niall you have to. Your mum and Greg and Denise are here for if she's found. They'll call you immediately when they found her. You have to go. We can't let the fans down" Wow! Like the fans would interest me. I only wanted my daughter back! No matter the price, I'd pay it for her.
"I'm coming Li. Just a second. Someone's calling me" he nodded and left me alone. I answered the phone.
"Hey Mystery!" Emma said happily. I sobbed when I heard her. She reminded me of Lauren.
"Hey" I said weakly. "what's wrong? Cuz I can hear that there is something wrong. Tell me. I want to help you" I swallowed. I really wanted to tell her but would it be good?
"It's Lauren. She... she..." I couldn't find the words anymore and cried.
"She what? Please tell me. I can help you" "No you can't. You can't help me Emma. She's taken" I sobbed and waited for a response.
"Taken? When? How? Tell me everything please? Gosh, I'm so sorry for you" I took a deep breath and answered her questions.
"When I was with my brother and his wife. She went outside to play and a man took her. I've been searching ever since but I can't find her. I have no clue where she could be or why he took her" What did she ever do? She never...
"That's horrible. I wish I could do something. Do you still want our meeting / date thing tomorrow or not? I can understand if you don't. Just know that I'm here for you when you need me. You're all on your own now" I smiled weak.
"Maybe it's good to be with you. I can't do very much here now. The police are searching and I have to leave to London today. I'll see you at the Primark at 3.30 right?"
"Yes. If you don't want to we can meet another time. Just call or text me. I'm here for you babe. I have to go. Lunch break is almost over. Have to get back to work. Don't worry. You'll find her. I know it" she said and then the line was dead.
"I'm ready to leave... Kind of" I said to the lads. They looked at me.
"Niall don't worry they-" "Will find her? I don't know. What if he left the country before I could call the police? He can be everywhere" they looked down since they knew I could be right.
"You really don't know who he is? You didn't recognized him?" Harry asked. I shook my head.
"but I might have a clue. Lauren was afraid that this would happen. I should have listened to her. She knew him better than I"
"Where are you talking about Niall? Who is he?" Louis asked me.
