"She- she got raped Niall." Liam said.
"What!!" I shouted. Mum looked shocked, Greg droped the glass water and Denise got tears in her eyes and hugged Lauren.
"She got raped Niall." he repeated. I picked the closest object and threw it away.
"Niall?" Liam asked worried.
"Niall calm down!" stupid, dumbass Liam. "How can I be calm? You just told me that my daughter got raped when she was five years old! Liam I can't calm down. Dick!" and I ended the call. I had heard enough.
I run away even when I knew that I should be there for Lauren. I'd be there for her but first I had to calm down.
"Niall?" Denise said dissapointed but it didn't bothered me. My little girl, my baby princess, she was only five years old!
"Let him Denise. This is hard for him. He needs to calm down" I heard mum and then I was outside.
This reminded me of fights between my parents or Greg. When that happened I run away as well. Trying to make my mind clear.
But this was different in so many ways.
First this wasn't because of a fight. This was because some idiot thought that it was normal to rape a five year old girl!
Second. I couldn't stay for too long, I couldn't shout or schream or yell at people because of the band.
And thirt I HAD to get back. Lauren needed me. She was the one who got raped not me. For her this must be way harder than it was for me. I couldn't run away from problems and dificulties anymore. I had my duties.
I walked back home. I had to go back. I had to be there for Lauren.
"Calm down baby. Daddy isn't mad at you. He is mad at the person who did that to you." Mum said to Lauren when I opened the door.
"But what if he is mad at me. I lied to him" I couldn't stand this.
"Baby I'm not mad at you. This isn't your fault. Come to daddy. I'm here for you and I'll never let anything like that happen again." I said and she looked at me with fluffy eyes.
"Baby come here." I saw that she hestiated.
"I'm not mad or dissapointed. I feel sorry for you that you had to get trough this. But you have to believe me. I'll never do something like that to you. I'll never hurt you." and I hugged her. She kept crying.
"I'm... s- sorry that I- I lied t- to you. I should have tr- trusted you." she said after a while.
"I can understand that you didn't told us. You only know me for two days. But now you know that you can trust us?" I said to her and slowly she calmed down.
"Yes. I can trust you daddy. I love you" she smiled very weak and calmed down.
"You know what? We go to bed. We can talk tomorrow." and I lifted her up.
"One last question baby" mum said. "Why didn't you told Irina?" Lauren looked shocked.
"He said that if I'd tell it anyone he'd do it again." she cried and freaked out again.
"He can't do that now. We protect you." I kissed her forehead. "But don't think about it anymore for now. We're going to find something for this tomorrow." I told her while I rubbed her back.
"Can you stay daddy?" She asked. "Always baby. Always but come. Put your pyjammas on and than we can go to sleep." she nodded and changed.
"Daddy?" "What baby?" "Why are you so nice to me? I only cause you worries and problems" She said shy.
"Baby you don't do that. I have to confess that I'm worried that someting happens to you but that is my fault.
I lost you twice because I am a horrible dad. You never asked someone to rape you. And the worries... That's because I love you. I always try to protect the ones I love. And you are my number one." she smiled and kissed my cheeks.
"You are my number one as well daddy. Forever!" "I hold you on to that. Let's see if you still say that in ten years." and I gave her a peck on her cheeck as well.
"You will always be my number one!" she yawed.
"Time to sleep princess. And don't worry, I'll sleep next to you for as long as you want." I made sure. "Are you sure?"
"Sure babe. So make some space for my fat ass." I said and Lauren giggled.
"Your ass isn't fat!" giggles made her so cute. I couldn't imagine that someone would want to hurt her.
I started singing When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars.
"You sing amazing daddy. I wish that I could sing like that". Lauren said when I was finished.
"I bet you can sing wonderful but we'll see that tomorrow. Now go to sleep baby." I laughed. "Do you stay here?"
"Only if you want that." "Please stay. I want that!" she said hopeful. "Than I'll stay here untill you wake up in the morning babe. And now go to sleep." and I turned the light off.
"And don't be afraid. I'm here and you can wake me up whenever you want." I gave her one last kiss on her forhead and she fell asleep.
"What do you want to do Ni?" Mum said when she walked in.
"Well get that asshole arrested! He raped a five your old. That's a crime!" I shout/whispered to her. I was afraid to wake up Lauren just now, when she finally was sleeping.
"And how do you think to get that done?" she asked.
"Irina must know where she came from when it happened. And Lauren knows it as well. She only needs to find the curage to tell us.
And I have to involve the cops. If I don't do that and I find him he's dead!" I got angry by the thought of that idiot!
"You're groing up. You show responsibility. I'm proud hun." I smiled
"I have to. All because of my baby girl. You can go back to Greg and Denise. I promised to stay here." Mum nodded and walked away.
I picked my phone and teksted Liam to apologize for what I said before.
To: Liammmm ;-)
I'm sorry for before. I couldn't believe it. Please call me in the morning. I don't want to wake Lauren up now. Again. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have been like that to you. Can you forgive me?
I send it and waited for an answer. It came after two minutes. Liam and his phone.
1Text from: Liammmm ;-)
It's fine Nialler. I can understand it. I'm so sorry for Lauren. What's your plan? Maybe we can help. We're a family. Say hi to your family. We'll see you in three days. Liam
I was happy that Liam kind of understood me. I looked at my prinsess and coverd her shoulders with the blanket. She murmured something and I wrapped my arms around her.
"You're safe. I'll make sure that you'll never get hurt again" and I started humming several songs. Some were my own, Little Mix's and Ed Sheran's. But also Rihanna and Adele. Everything and slowly I started feeling tired.
"Sleep well baby. Daddy is here for you" I said and I closed my eyes.
