My Hero: Chapter 1
Running away to different countries is hard. I've been running away from him since I was sixteen. My psychotic ex boyfriend had been trying to find me for six years. I've been in London for two years. I'm surprised he didn't find me yet.
I loved it here in London. I like the dreary weather and the rain. It always reminds me of my mood. Depressed.
When I was fifteen, he killed my best friend. He killed her because she didn't know where I was. I was just going to the store. When I got back home, she was dead. Nick didn't say anything. He just gave me an evil smirk. That smirk that haunts in my dreams.
That day still haunts me. I was walking to work. being a day care worker is actually cool. I love kids. I want have some of my own one day. I walked into the building and took off my coat.
"Morning May." I said.
"Morning Payton. Ready to see the kids?" May said.
I nodded. "Of course."
We walked in and all the kids came up to me. They all hugged my legs.
"I missed you guys, too." I said giggling.
They all let go and went go play with the toys. Lux came up to me and smiled back.
"Hi Lux." I said.
She giggled. I love Lux. She's the cutest thing ever. Her mom is a stylist for One Direction. Yeah. I said it. Lux is the only I really like out of all the kids. Don't get me wrong but she just different from them.
Hours have passed and everyone's parents were here. I saw some guy come in and May greeted him. He saw me and smiled. I looked down and blushed.
"Lux. Louis' here to pick you up." May said.
She was standing behind me. Not wanting to leave. I picked her up and brought her to him.
"I'll see you tomorrow. Okay?" I said.
She nodded and hugged me I hugged back and she went to Louis.
"She must really like you." he said.
"Yeah. She does."
"Well, nice to meet you Payton. I'll guess I'll see you around." he said.
"Yeah. Bye." I said
"Bye." He said waving.
After my shift, I went to Nando's to meet my friend Brooke. She a waitress there. I walked in and she saw me. She smiled wide.
"Hey Pay." she said.
"Hey Brooke. Are you almost done with your shift?"
"Yeah. Just got to give this check to a table and I'm done."
She walked to the table and they had five guys there. I recognized one of them. I saw Louis lock eyes with mine and he smiled. I blushed. He got up from the table and came up to me.
"Well nice to see you again Payton."
"You, too." I said.
"I was wondering if you wanted to go out with me and the boys tomorrow night?" he asked.
He cheered and gave me a hug. I hugged him back. Sparks and butterflies erupted my body. I smiled. We exchanged numbers. He kissed my cheek and we both went deprecate ways.
I was walking home since it wasn't that far. I passed by somebody who was insanely drunk.
"Where you think you going, baby." he slurred.
I just walked faster. I heard his footsteps behind me. I started to pick up the pace and he started to pick us his pace. He grabbed my arm and pulled me into an alley. He started to kiss my neck and I whimpered.
I saw another figure come this way and he pulled him off top of me. He punched and kicked the man twice. He stopped and the man ran away. The figure came up to me and hugged me. I was startled. I tried to pull away but I couldn't.
"Payton, it's just me." He said.
"Louis." I said.
He nodded and kissed my forehead. I cried into his chest.
"Thank you. For saving me." I said.
"No problem, love." he said.
You're my hero....
