I woke up with the blazing sun beaming down on my face. I looked over and noticed my little sister standing at the doorway. She was smiling big and wide. She had a toothless smile since she was five. As soon as I stood up she ran over and jumped on me. I laughed holding her tightly in my arms. I walked downstairs to see my mother serving breakfast.
"Good morning sweetheart." She smiled at me.
"Good morning mother." I smiled at her and set Lizzy down. Joesph ran up behind me lifting me off the ground and spinning me around. I giggled because I miss this. He set me down and I spun around to see Ash. I engulfed her in a tight hug.
"Xena! I missed you!" She squealed.
I looked behind her to see Ariel. She looked disappointed to see me but quickly recovered and smiled at me before hugging me tightly. After we all ate we headed to the old field. I sat on a picnic blanket talking to Joey about everyone at the school. He said that if he ever meets Harry he's punching his lights out.
"Xena?" My eyes widened as I spun around to see my blonde fellow. He had a small rose in his hand. I walked over to him with curious eyes.
"Niall? What in the world are you doing here?" I asked taking the rose in my hand.
"I was hoping that I could get you to come back..." He mumbled. "Liberty and Sarah sent me because they were sure that I'd be the one to convince you.."
"They put a lot of pressure on you." I teased.
"Xena who's the hottie?" Ariel said rubbing on his arm.
"My name is Niall." He said bluntly and moving his arm away from her. "Can I talk to her alone?"
She looked surprised that he just rejected her. Then she shrugged and went back to my sister. I started laughing.
"I don't like that girl." He said. "She reminds me of Styles."
My eyes widened as I started putting the pieces together. Ariel and Harry were very similar. I sat down in the grass with Niall next to me. Its been a week since I left the school. When I got home my mother told me that Joey and Ash went to a vacation house with Ariel. They just returned today.
"Will you come back Xena?" He looked at me with his baby blue eyes pleading that I say yes.
"How is everyone?" I asked ignoring his question.
"Sarah is getting kicked out..." He muttered.
"What?! Why?!" I turned sharply looking at him.
"Because Styles was spreading rumors about her and Liam sleeping around. So she slapped him in the face with a bat." He sighed. "So mommy Styles threatened to sue the school if they didn't kick her out."
"What about Liberty?" I prayed she wasn't going to get kicked out.
"She's doing fine even though Styles has turned his sights onto her now that you aren't around." He muttered. "And being the only female left after tomorrow it's only going to get worse."
I couldn't let that happen. She needed me. Now more than ever.
"I'm coming back." I muttered.
He smiled and hugged me tightly. Was I really ready to get back into this battle? Could I really stand my ground against him?
