3. The Promise
I had no connection to the outside word, so I didn't know what was going on when a limo and cops went by. They stopped and 5 guys got out and I looked out the window of the attic. 'One Direction?!' I shrieked and my hands went instantly to my mouth to cover it. The blonde, Niall looked up and I quickly moved away. 'Did he hear me? No. He couldn't have' I pushed the thought away from my mind. The house my mother lived in was big and had many of empty rooms making it the go to place when you needed somewhere to stay. One Direction here? No. This was a crappy little town and they would never stop here. Thing is, they did stop here. They came in and they all took rooms and Niall got the room below me. I hear him yawn as they all started to go to bed. I laid in my bed and cried, not a sad nor joyous cry. I'm not sure why I cried but it felt good. I heard stirring at the door that lead to my room and sat up, scared. I cuddled in the blankets and shoved myself into the corner of the room. The door opened and there he was. Tall handsome and blonde with brown roots starting to come in. His eyes showing concern he took a step towards me. I pushed myself further back and he stopped. A shiver ran through him as he whispered, 'what are you doing up here? Surely you can be down in one of the other rooms with heat.' I shook my head and put my finger to my lips and pointed at a wardrobe, telling him to get in. The second he was in my mother bursts in through the door. 'You insignificant worthless piece of shit. What do you think your doing letting that door open! What am I heating your room now too!' She slapped me across the face with a loud crack. Tears steamed down my face as I tried not to look at my wardrobe. She walked around my room and looked at the posters. 'Your the reason your father died and the reason you don't have a horse anymore. They're deaths are on you. You should be lucky I treat you as well as I do.' Anger rising in me, I whispered, 'By selling your daughter as a sex slave? Letting men throw me around and do with me as they please?' She turned around and stared at me, 'what did you say?' She said with anger. I looked over at the wardrobe where I saw Niall. I shut my eyes and turned my head back to her. 'Nothing.' I replied softly. Tears streaming down my face I sat there in the corner of my room while she smashed the best trophy I ever earned with my horse. She smirked after she saw me crying and left the room. Niall got out and as quickly and quietly as he could got over to me and held me an I cried. 'I will get you out of here.' I sat in his arms crying until I fell asleep.
