We got back to the house and I bolted inside. I ran up to my bedroom with Kai in my arms. I laid her down on the bed. She was still breathing. "Niall get and ice pack!" I yelled. With in seconds Niall was by my side with an ice pack. I took it from him and softly set it across Kai's slightly swollen eye. This guy really hit her hard. "I should have been there.." I said angry at myself for leaving her alone like that.
"Harry, don't. You were trying to protect her. You didn't know that man was hiding doesn't there." Louis said trying to cheer me up. "And besides, she's gonna be fine. She's just...uhm...knocked out right now." Zayn hit Louis in the arm. "OWWA!" He yelled.
"Louis?! That wasn't much help!" Zayn called out. Any other time I would have laughed but now was not the time.
"Guys, why don't we leave Harry alone with her for a while?" Liam asked.
"Yeah, dats probablee a good idea." Niall agreed. All the boys stood up and started to leave. "She'll be alright lad. You'll see." Niall said before leaving the room. I pulled up a chair next to the bed and waited until Kai woke up.
"Goodmorning love!" Harry yelled as I walked into the kitchen.
"Goodmorning." I said. "Man, what happened last night? I remember fighting and that's it." I sat next to him at the table.
"Uhm, you got hit. And you have a black eye." He replied. I reached up to rub my eye.
"OUCH!" It stung.
"Be careful! Don't touch it!" He said. He grabbed my arm and pulled me into his lap. I laid my head back on his shoulder and he gently played with my hair. Then he stopped. I looked up at him and he had a serious face. He was starring out the window. I turned and gasped. The man who was chasing us last night was standing right outside the window with a gun pointed to me. The man pulled the trigger and Harry jumped up blocking the hit. I watched as he fell to the floor. Lifeless.
"HARRY!!!" I shot up in bed. One of the worst nightmares in my life. I looked around and I was in a bed I didn't quite recognize. I laid back down when my head started to throb. I then felt something rustle beside me. I turned my head and screamed as a fuzzy blob crawled out of the covers. Oh...it was just Harry's head...
"WHAT?!" He yelled, he shot up and covered me. "What is it Kai?! What?!"
"Uhm...nothing...I had another nightmare is all..." I said shyly.
"Hhhh, oh. Wait, you're awake! GUYS!! KAI'S AWAKE!!" He yelled. Suddenly I heard a bunch of thump thumps as the boys jumped out of bed and ran into the room I was in. "Ugh! Kai!" Harry sighed pulling me into his arms. Oh how I loved his hugs.
"KAI!" Liam yelled, running over to me and Harry and wrapping us both in his arms. "Don't ever fight like that again! Do you understand?! If you're gonna fight DON'T LOSE FOCUS!" He said acting like a parent. "How's your eye? Oooo man that's a nice shiner you got there." I flinched as he tried to rub it.
"Ow.." I said.
"Oh sorry! Here." He said handing me my ice pack.
"Thanks." I replied.
"Kai this is all my fault I never should have left you!" Harry said. The look in his eye told me that he would never forgive himself.
"Harry I'm fine! I grew up with tons of guys in my family....I'm tougher than you think. I could have taken him."
"What?! Kai you were out cold! You're lucky we were there." He furrowed his eye brows.
"No you're lucky I was there! I-"
"What?! No! Kai we aren't lucky you were there! You got hurt and it's my fault!" His eyes grew into a mixture of sadness and anger.
"Harry...it's not your fault. You saved me. All of you did." I said looking around to all the boys. "Thank you." They all grinned sympathetically.
"Of course, anytime." Niall spoke.
"But please don't make it to many times." Zayn said.
"Yeah we want you safe." Louis chimed in.
"Soooo, I'm guessing this is a bad time to discuss me becoming a spy?" I asked my voice rising in pitch.
"Hahaha no. Not going to happen." Liam stated.
"But you saw me fight! I'm not bad!"
"Kai....you're in Harry's bed waking up from being knocked out. I'm not going to let you become a spy. Not as long as you're in my house." Holy crud! He sounds like my dad.
"What?! But I'm stuck in this house! I don't have a choice wether I want to be here or not!" And it was true! They were holding me here against my will wether I liked it or hated it. But of course it was better than death...
"Exactly." He said grinning and then he walked out of the room.
"Hhhhh. This isn't fair!" I huffed.
"We know Kai but you have to try and understand. Liam, I mean ALL of us want the best for you." Louis said. He came over and squeezed my shoulder. "Everything will work out. You just have to trust us."
"He's right Kai." Niall said. "I know it's confusing but you'll understand soon enough." With that said him and Louis left the room.
"Well, feel better Kai. See you in the morning." Zayn said. He looked at Harry and did some type of sign language thing. I looked at Harry and he grinned at Zayn returning the signal. Then Zayn was gone.
I looked at Harry. "What?" He asked.
"Whaaa?!" I mimicked him. He laughed then pulled me into his arms and we laid back down in the warm covers. "I can feel your smirking.." I said trying to stop myself from smiling. Harry chuckled and pulled me closer to him. "Harry I need to go to my bed."
"Nooooo. Stay here." He whined.
"Why?" I asked. He didn't answer. "Harry..." I turned around in his arms. He looked into my eyes and smiled.
"Because." He slightly grinned, but not a smirky one, it was more of a 'I love you' grin. "I want to protect you." I smiled being satisfied with that answer then leaned in to kiss his nose. But within the last few centimeters he moved his head up and our lips touched.
"Hey!!" I laughed.
"Haha, getting a little frisky are we now?" He smirked chuckling.
"Shutup!" I said, playfully hitting his arm. He kissed my forehead and then closed his eyes.
"Goodnight Kai." He still had a smirky smile, so I refused to answer. He opened his eyes and glanced at me. I then felt his hand squeeze my side making me jump and giggle. "I said goodnight." I grinned and cuddled up closer to him.
"Goodnight." I sighed.
