"Sally! Get me some water!"
I clench my teeth and walk into the kitchen. The cupboard door slams shut as I grab a glass.
"Sophie. My name is Sophie."
I carefully transport the water over to aunt Martha, her small eyes peering at me. Before I can scream, something causes me to trip over and slam my face into the floor. I groan as aunt Martha's horrible snorts fill the air.
"Ahhh I can't believe you fell for that! Twice too!"
I stand up and ignore the big wet stain all over my top.
"I came here to look after you, and all you have done is trick me, yell at me, command me and generally take advantage of me. I came here because I care about my family and your help!"
She brushes the hair out of her face. Aunt Martha has been single for a long time now, and ever since she broke up with her ex, ed, she has gotten fatter and meaner.
"I know you care about me, it's just ever since I got diagnosed with...erm...liver cancer-"
"Oh sorry diagnosed with a-"
I look at her, fury in my eyes.
"You lied to be about being sick! You lied about having lung cancer....and come to think of it, ie never actually seen you smoke! This apartment has no traces of someone smoking at all! You're a big fat stinking liar! How could you do that!?"
She looks at me with tears in her eyes.
"I just wanted company. I'm getting old and-"
"No! You know what? I don't care. I don't appreciate you tricking me into Being worried SICK about you! Maybe you should get off your lazy ass and go make some friends yourself, because I'm done attending to your every need"
She looks at me, this time her mouth wide open. I scoff, run to the bedroom, collect my belongings and walk to the door. I twist my body before slamming it behind me.
"Goodbye, aunt Martha"
"Hello? Anybody hooommmee?"
I softly click the door behind me and immediately run upstairs to Katie's room. Nothing but twisted bed sheets. I grab my phone and run my hands through my hair, dialling her number.
"Hello you have reached katie Hollands phone. Sorry I couldn't answer, but please leave a message after the tone and I'll get back to you as soon as I can"
I grunt and tap the red icon. She never misses a phone call unless she's lost it or it's on silent, which is only at the movies. I call a few more times, but sigh in defeat as the same thing happens. I scream slightly and rise from laying on the bed, my phone violently vibrated.
"Yeah, listen. Katie is in hospital, she's fine though, but I was thinking that-"
"What hospital? What happened?"
"Just meet us at the state hospital"
"Us? What the hell is going on Lou?"
"I really don't know"
And then the line goes dead and before I know it, I'm stumbling down the stairs towards the door, only katie on my mind.
I smile at all the grinning faces and allow the doctor to keep examining me, my legs swinging as I sit on the edge of the bed.
"Well katie, looks like you're fine, just a bump. How's your head?"
I rub it in response.
"It's better, still a little sore"
"Ok guys just a reminder that katie does have asthma, so please make sure you have a puffer nearby at all times as you're vulnerable at the moment. If you get any extreme headaches, just call and we will do another check up. Other than that, make sure you visit the chiro once every fortnight. You're free to go"
I hug the doctor and scream as a very stressed looking Sophie bursts through the door. Her eyes widen as she stares at me.
I pat her back as she bends over breathlessly
"I'm fine Soph, just a fall. How's aunt-"
"DONT even talk about her"
We sign out quickly, Louis' patience fading quickly. I squeal and giggle as he lifts me up onto his shoulders as we leave the hospital, screaming crowds of girls surrounding us. I glance over to see Sophie hitched up on Harry's shoulders. She makes her 'omg this isn't happening!' Face at me. I roll my eyes and give her the thumbs up. Louis helps me down as we approach the cab, his lips to my ear.
"They're a cute couple, aren't they?"
I let my eyes continue to be shut as I stretch my arms, yawning as I do so. I frown as my Hand meets an object, patting it to examine it's features. I giggle and open my eyes, my hand retracting, as I realise what I'm feeling.
"Sorry Liam, must've fell asleep"
He laughs and shrugs it off, helping me sit up.
"It's fine, I'm often used as a pillow"
I glance around the taxi to see Louis smiling at me beside me, Niall sleeping in the front seat. Liam had told te driver to go to sandy point, a small beach that only a couple of people know of. The others had travelled in another car, who had been texted an informed of our beach plans.
I re tie my hair, lurching forward as the driver parks.
"We're here. Call me when you need me"
We say our goodbyes and sit Over at an obviously old wooden bench, the others greeting us with smiles. I grasp te ice chocolate that Sophie hands to me, the others collecting their drinks. I roll my eyes and make gagging noises as Harry and Sophie go into their own deep conversation across the table, completely oblivious of the rest of us. I lean in and whisper into zayn's ear.
"Wanna bet on how long it will take them to ki-"
My mouth opens in shock as their lips crash together. Zayn chuckles and leans into my ear.
"You think it's bad here? I had to spend a two hour trip cramped in between them"
I give him a sympathetic look as I slurp down my last mouthful of chocolate, throwing it ini the bin with the rest of the garbage. I jump suddenly as Louis stands up, his body shaking the whole table.
"To the beach!"
I stand up with the others, then frown.
"What about bathe-"
I get interrupted by Louis, all his clothes on, running into the waves screaming. I sigh and watch as Liam and zayn follow.
"You lovers coming?" I ask
They don't even look away from each other's eyes. I sigh, Niall laughing beside me.
He lifts me up onto his back and jogs onto the sand towards the three other boys, splashing in the sea.
"Ahh! Lou stop it!" Liam gasps, his arms doing nothing to protect him from Louis' splash attacks.
"Fine fine. Let's all sit"
I place myself down on the soft seabed, the small waves rocking me. There's not really many waves anyway, not even white water.
"What do you guys think of Sophie and Haz?" Zayn questions.
All our heads turn to the snogging couple up on the shore
"Cute in a weirdly disgusting sort of way" Niall comments
"Ugh" Liam shakes his head
"I'm happy for them, I really am, it's just..they've seen each other...what? Once before this?" I state
The others nod. I lay back and squint at the sun, floatin onthe salt water. I gasp and squeal as Niall shoves me under.
"Niall!" I punch him playfully on the arm as I rise. He just shrugs.
I run my hand over the top of my hair and shake the water off. I frown at louis to see his eyes widen.
"What is it Lou?"
He points over to deeper water. I giggle while the others gasp
"Sh..sha..shark" zayn stutters. I laugh
"Guys calm down-"
The boys start swimming towards the shore. I sigh and swim towards the delicate fins. I inore the shouts from the sand and greet the heard with a friendly grin of excitement.
"Hey their guys, you scared the boys!"
I watch the pod of mammals swim around, then gesture for the boys to come in. Zayn runs back up to the bench, his obvious fear of sharks showing. Liam dives in first, followed by Niall and then Louis. The dolphins continue to swim, their strong fins making a small current. Liam shakes his head and sighs as he swims over to me first, the others not fair behind.
"Nothing but trouble comes from you katie I swear"
I giggle and greet the others with a smirk
"Afraid of some friendly-"
Niall grabs my arm and pulls me towards him, his other hand clearly pointing to behind me
"This time, for real!"
I glance around to see a sharper fin speeding along.
"Nothing but trouble aye" I mumble and start to swim speedily along with the others, ignoring the pit of fear in my stomach
