15. Chapter 14: Lost and Alone.
i fake slept. I knew Niall would come in the room after a few. He covered me up and I heard him and Harry talking. Niall could protect me.... Couldn't he? I'm sure he would go out of him comfort zone to save me and my mum. Then I hear Harry say "your on your own" I felt more tears rush down my face. I lowered my cries so they couldn't hear them. I got up and walked to the window. I started to write a note. It said
i wasn't really sleeping... I needed some fresh air so I'm taking a walk. Don't bother to come get me, ill be back in less than half an hour. Please don't worry. I can defend myself. Ill see you soon. Love you.
I hopped out of the window and felt the cold run through my body. I wasn't going to run away. I had to repeat that in my head. So many times I've snuck out of my room and attempted to run away. But all failed. I started to walk left then right and then down for what felt like an hour. I took more lefts and rights and then decided it was time to go back. I took a few rights and a few lefts and found myself lost. I texted Niall.
I'm lost.. I'm on some type of road. It's called Kharlile (Car-lile) blvd. please come help.
10 minutes later I checked back at my phone and it didn't send. I kept hitting resend but it wasn't working. Finally I gave up and then my phone died. It felt like -25 degrees. I wrapped my sweater around my chest to huddle. I pulled my sleeves over my hands and started walking South. I came to this house with all of its lights on. I walked up to it and knocked. I looked on the mat and it said "Jackson's" I felt like I knew this name. Then I remembered. The doctor. I walked backwards and the doctor answered the door, smirking. Niall couldn't protect me now. "Hello Mrs. Wayne. We've been waiting" "who's Mrs. Wayne? I'm Mrs. Dell" I smiled cautiously trying to hide a lie. He walked up to me and pulled my arms out. "Hmmm no bruises.." He had a confused look on his face. Then I asked him "where is Canaberry avenue?" He laughed and said "it's about 3 miles that way" and pointed a direction. I nodded and said "thank you" I turned my back to him and headed in the direction. I started to walk when I felt someone watching me an following. Every so often I looked back behind me but didnt see anything. I couldn't believe I walked 3 miles. I was walking past a pair of woods, which I didn't seem t notice the way here. I decided to sit down and get warm. I was so cold I couldn't feel my fingers. "You can't stop" I told myself after about 5 minutes of sitting down. I got back up and felt someone following me again. I looked back after the woods and saw a pair of eyes look st me. I gasped and ran. This wasn't helping how cold I was. Then I felt a pair f hands pull me in. I screamed.
i pulled Clairy into a warm hug and she greeted me with screaming. I pulled her off of me and asked her "what's wrong? Darling! It's me Niall" she looked up scared as can be. "N-Niall" her teeth shuttered. I took my jacket off and put it around her freezing body. "S-somebody's following m-me n-Niall" "what? Who? Did you see them?" "I think I-it's the d-doctor" she shuttered. I pulled her in for another hug and picked her up (like a toddler) and she wrapped her legs around my waist. I rubbed circles on her back and she nuzzled her head into my neck and I felt her cold breath tickle my ear. I rubbed it off and took her to my Audi and put her in the front seat. I blared the heat. I started to sweat so at a stoplight I took my shirt off. Clairy was half asleep still warming herself up. I leaned over the seat and kissed her forehead when I heard honking sounds. I honked back and drove the car home. I walked in and all of the boys were on te couch. "He almost had her" I said. "We know. He's after her. We saw everything. You need to ship her off" I hesitated to say "is it the only way?" "Yes" Liam said and Louis added "you have to you know" "no I can't, not now" "you have to!" Harry yelled. I shushed him an let tears fall from my eyes into Clairys hair. This was too far. I couldn't protect her like this. Never again could I leave her. "Alright" I said. What te hell did I just do?! But I knew my mind was right. She finally woke up. I said "what were you doing out there lost and alone?" "I went for a walk and walked too far" she said her voice shaky. I pulled her into a hug, maybe the last. I layed her in bed and cuddled beside her, comforting her. She was my everything, but it's only safe if I let her go.
