When we arrived back to the house Harry carried me into the kitchen and set me on the counter, still being silent and not talking to me he went and got a bag for some ice. "I'm so-"
"Not now Kai!" Liam half yelled. Ugh I'm in sooo much trouble! "Boys! Get in here!" I heard a bunch of footsteps and then they all appeared in the kitchen.
"What do you need?" Asked Louis. Liam raises his eyebrows then looks over to me. All eyes are on me, again. I got nervous so I looked down.
"Kai, look at me." Liam ordered. I slowly looked up at him giving him a slight smile that disappeared as soon as I saw all the boys faces. Every one of them, including Harry had a dead serious angry face. "This isn't funny Kai." Liam stated. "You're in serious trouble....if the government found out you tried to run away....well.....I'll let your mind figure out what would happen." I frowned.
"You guys said you wouldn't hurt m-"
"Kai! For the last time!!! WE.ARE.NOT.GOING.TO.HURT.YOU.!!!" Harry yelled. I looked at him and he was enraged.
"I'm sorry." I apologized. But it didn't seem to work.
"Kai, we know you're sorry but you still need to be punished..." Zayn said regretfully. I closed my eyes and slouched my shoulders.
"Any ideas boys?" Liam asked.
"I have one." Harry stated. "She won't like it but it's for her safety."
"Alright...what do you have in mind?" Louis asked.
"One of us is going to have to keep an eye on her until we know for sure we can trust her...I suggest she has one boy with her everywhere she goes for a couple days. Just so she doesn't try anything stupid." He looks up at me, still having an angry face.
"What?! No! I need my privacy!" I yell.
"You had your privacy and ruined it when you snuck out your window." Liam stated. Ugh why on Earth doesn't he like me?!
"We could take her door down?" Niall said.
"No Ni I already busted it down remember?" Harry asked while filling the ice pack with more ice.
"Oh yeah right." Niall responded.
"Ouch!" I yell when Harry sets the ice pack on my ankle.
"Sorry, but if you wouldn't have run away this wouldn't have happened!" He stated.
"Well I wouldn't have run away if it weren't for Liam!" I yelled, immediately regretting it.
"What?! What did I do?! I was asleep!!" Liam yelled.
I don't know where it came from but I suddenly got courageous. "It doesn't matter if you were asleep or not! It's just you! You scare the living crud out of me! And it's because you hate me!!" I yelled. All the boys froze and everyone's eyes grew wide.
"Wha-what?! Kai...why one Earth would you think that?!" He asked, I could hear the hurt in his voice.
"Because it's true!....I bet you're hoping that I fail the stupid test just so you can be the one to-"
"STOP!!" He yelled. I froze stiff, he was already mad and I just made it worse. "How could you say that?! Kai....I'm the one who let Harry keep you here. I'm the one who told you everything was gonna be ok when Lou had you scared to death when he had you by your arm. I think of you as family Kai! But apparently you don't think the same. Hhhhh...." He collected himself and then turned towards the hallway. He started walking but stopped and looked at me over his shoulder. "I'm sorry you thought that of me....I was just trying to protect you..." He then turned back around and walked off. I felt my heart drop. He did like me, no he loved me. Right now him and the boys were my only family. All this time I've been worried about him hurting me when I'm the one who ended up hurting him...I have to talk to him! I have to apologize and make things right!
I jumped off the counter to run to him but that was a mistake. Pain shot through my ankle and I fell to the ground. "KAI!" Harry yelled. "What are you trying to do to yourself?!" He asks worried. He helped me up and set me back up on the counter.
"I have to apologize." I say starting to jump off again but this time Harry catches me.
"No! You'll stay right here. He'll be ok just give him time to cool down. Then you can talk to him. Besides we still need to nurse your ankle." He said sighing.
"Hhhhh, I messed up big time Harry...now I'll never get to stay.." Tears brimmed my eyes.
"Hey look at me." I looked up at him. "You're one of us now. Do you know how many times I've made Liam mad? Boys?" He looks at the boys who are now sitting at the table. "How many times have we made Liam mad?"
"More than we should have!" Louis yelled.
"And yet no matter how mad he gets he always forgives us and loves us just as much right?!" He asked them.
"More than you know." Niall said smiling.
"See? Don't worry about it too much love. Worrying will get you know where in life." He smiles.
"Hhhh, I'm...I'm sorry I ran away...I just got scared." I stated.
"Well, it's not okay but we forgive you." Harry said.
"But just know you're going to be watched like a hawk little miss." Zayn stated.
"I know." I said. Harry finished wrapping my ankle then gave me some pain medicine. I started to get up off the counter but Harry stopped me.
"Wait. You don't need to walk on it for a while." He said. "Here." He wrapped his arm under my legs then put his other arm behind my back again and picked me up.
"Thank you." I said then leaned up and kissed his cheek.
He stopped moving for a minute and looked down at me. I thought I'd made a mistake but when I saw his cheeky grin start to form I calmed down. "Hmmm, maybe I should carry you bridal style more often."
"Just take me to my room!" I said laughing.
"Uhm, no...Harry she needs to stay in one of our rooms tonight." Louis stated. "Remember her punishment?"
"Oh right." Harry looked down at me. Sorry love you're going to have to stay in my room for a while." He grinned. I felt my cheeks heat up and I looked down. "Haha, it's alright love I'll sleep on the chair in my room." He said. He then carried me to his room and set me on his bed. "Alright I need to get you some pjs. I'll be right back." He left and within ten seconds he was back in his room with some pjs for me.
"Thank you." I said.
"No problem." He replied sitting on the bed.
"What?...oh yeah of course I'll just step out for a few seconds to let you change." He left and I changed as fast as I could. But before he came back I laid down on his bed. It had been such a long and exhausting day, so I fell asleep. I really needed some sleep anyways.
I walked back in my room only to find a sleeping girl on my bed. She looked so peaceful when she was asleep. I just wish she was like this when she was awake. She worries so much when she's awake. I just wish she knew how much she was loved here. How much we loved her. How much I loved her.
