18. Late Night.
Niall and I walked around town talking about random things that popped up in our brains. For awhile we were singing random songs with the wrong lyrics. Some people who were passing us thought we were either insane or completely wasted. This feeling was far better than being wasted. It was the feeling of happiness and fun. We locked hands and skipped through the park until we heard some noise. By this time we were in the deep wooded area. He covered my mouth with his hand to keep me quiet. This is what we heard:
"This dumb bitch thinks she's going to get away from me." A drunken guy slurred.
"Show her who's boss!" Another guy yelled.
"Noooo!" A girl screamed. My heart started pounding because I knew exactly what they were doing to that poor girl. They were raping her. Niall texted someone and a few minutes later we heard police.
"Hands up!" They yelled.
Niall grabbed my hand and we ran deeper into the forest. I was still plenty terrified of what just happened but I trusted Niall. We stopped when we came across a small cave. We sat down and I let out a huge sigh of relief. He wrapped his arms around me embracing me.
"That was horrible." I said.
"I know Zoe." He said rubbing the back of my head.
"What if that was me..." I muttered.
"I will never let that happen!" He said staring me in the eyes.
"But..." My eyes started tearing up.
"Zoey I will never let anything bad happen to you under my watch! I am sure that none of us would allow that to happen even if you send us away!" He smiled and whipped away my tears. Then he leaned down and kissed my lips softly for a brief moment then he pulled away.
