5. Uh... Hello?

Liam's POV:

I ran into the house without knowing what I was doing. The person in my arms was the lightest thing I have ever held.  I ran into the living room yelling,"Guys, I need a first aid kit, now!"  They took one look at the lifeless looking person that I was laying on the couch and they all immediately went into action.  We bandaged her up and waited until she would awake.

Mara's POV:

I was tired of seeing darkness. Where were the angels and the bright lights to take me away? Something was up. I started seeing visions of my parents' scary eyes seeping through me. I was terrified, so I screamed hoping that they weren't there but instead I just sat up with a jerk, finally opening my eyes. I heard a voice,"Are you okay love?" It was so sudden that I screamed bloody murder and got up from where I was sitting and ran out of the room. I heard the sound of running feet and I turned to look back when I bumped into something. I turned my head to look at what I bumped into, to see a boy laughing in front of me. Again I screamed and ran away. I ran up a staircase and into a room off to the side, only to find another boy in it. I screamed feeling like it was the only thing I could do at that moment beside running. I ran back down the stairs, feeling a panic attack creeping upon me.That's when it kicked in and I ran into what seemed like a kitchen.

I opened cabinets searching for a glass I could use for water. I fan one and quickly put water in it and I then drank it all. 'Breath. In and Out.' I kept thinking and repeating until I realized it wasn't me thinking it. It was somebody else. I turned around to find five boys quietly whispering it as I continued to shake.

This time, on instinct, I screamed and threw the glass cup right at their faces. Luckily, they ducked, but before I could apologize I ran up the same staircase as earlier and ran into a room locking the door. I turned around gazing upon the room. I noticed it had some instruments in it and I sat down thinking of what to sing. I walked over to the piano and decided on 'Because of You', because it was a meaningful song that I wrote.(A.N. The song is 'Because of You' by Kelly Clarkson)

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did,
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you

Liam's POV:

"Well that didn't end well" Louis joked. We all chuckled. "Well clearly she is terrified of us and we still haven't talked to her directly, so we ought to go find her and explain." I said. We all nodded and headed in the direction she ran, when I heard the piano being played. I walked over to the door and grabbed the spare key atop of the door frame and unlocked the door. The lads stood behind me as I quietly opened the door.

She was sitting at the piano and she had just started singing.  We let her sing the whole song and she has such a beautiful voice for such a young age. We cleared our throats, making a sound. She looked up  and instead of screaming she smiled. Was I missing something?

"No, I just need to apologize." She spoke, while standing up. Did I say that aloud?

"Yes, but that's okay." She giggled. "Well, first off, hello..."
