24. Chapter Twenty!
"It's Will." The one person I would've never thought of. Why was he my only hope? Who was the boss of them?
"Who was the boss of them?" I asked trying to take it all in. They all look away like they don't want to answer my question. So I repeat it.
"Lee, you don't wanna know." Harry said looking me straight into the eyes.
"I don't care, Harry! Tell me!" I started to raise my voice. I know I don't want to know but I owe it to myself to know. They all just looked way again. Why are they fucking ignoring me?!
"TELL ME NOW!!" I yelled this time. Just letting all the hatred inside of me out. They looked at me like I was crazy. I'm not crazy!!
"Austin." It came out as mumbling. Did I hear it right? Who said it?
"Huh?" I ask innocently. Please tell me it's not him. Not Austin. He promised he'd never hurt me. He beat me? How? Why? Tears started to build up, almost falling. But I don't want to cry right now. Not in front of everybody.
"It's Austin, Leela." The voice was clearer. It was Louis. I looked at Niall and he's choking back tears also. All this is too much to take in. It's too much to bear. I have to get out of here. I need to be alone.
I ran out the front door and just ran towards the woods behind the house. I heard them all calling my name. But everything just seem to fade away.
I ran and ran, until I got tired. Then I ran further and further. Deeper and deeper until I tripped on a branch, falling onto the ground. I'm too weak to get up. I need to sleep. I need to get out of this messed up world!!
I snapped out of my thoughts as I heard footsteps. Then a voice call out, "Leela, are you okay?"
Then I sobbed. I just let all the tears that threatened to fall out fall. I slowly shook my head no. And felt arms wrap around me. They just held me as I cried harder and harder.
