I cried till the last tear come and then I was just empty in the body. Alva didn't release her arms from me and I heard that the police left the apartment.
"You mustn't go!" I whispered, feeling the fear came. I didn't want to be alone with Niall and I did think that he would look down on me. It felt safer if Alva stayed and took care of me.
"Niall is still here?" she whispered tenderly. "I thought ...."
I interrupted her.
"He doesn't want me after this. He saw what Liam did and he's only going to look askance at me."
She sighed and pulled one hand over my cheek, to get away tears.
"But honey, he loves you!"
I shook my head.
"No one can love me and tell me not the posit. I know that everything is ruined and my life is just one big dark fog."
Still, I was surprised when I heard Nialls voice after a while.
"How is she?"
I felt that Alva shook her head and Niall realized that I had hit the bottom. I dared not look up at him and I didn't dare leave Alva's secure embrace.
"We should get her into bed." whispered Niall and seemed causes. "I go and beds clean, so you can make sure she gets there then?"
Alva nodded and I heard how he left us. I was amazed that he stayed, but didn't dare ask why. I was prepared that he would consider a lot of things about me and in the end still choose to go.
Alva made sure I showered and I got clean clothes on me. I was dull throughout the body and actually I realized that something was wrong with me. I was shaking, I couldn't think clearly and I felt like a kid again. I came to the bed and I knew that Niall was still in the room. I felt the covers over my body and the smell of clean sheets. It was like I came home. I could just imagine how Mom tucked me in bed and read a bedtime story to me. It was one of the few memories that were still happy. I knew that my parents often didn't directly revealed tenderness, but I remember few times when they seemed to care.
I woke up to a dark voice, which I didn't recognize.
"She's in shock!"
I swallowed and tried to open my eyes, but I couldn't. My whole body was heavy and I felt I had no control over anything. I heard Alva answering voice.
"So how long is she going to be like this?"
"I don't know!" replied the dark voice. "I can slice out pills to her, but I doubt it will help."
I then heard Nialls voice.
"But there must be something we can do?"
I wondered the same thing and I even wondered if it was me they were talking about. I assumed it was about me, but I wasn't sure.
"We can take her to the hospital for observation?"
"Yes!" Niall replied instantly. "Everything is better than this. She has been asleep for a week."
Huh? In a week?
I was admitted to the hospital and I got a drip in my arm. I was so tired that I missed a lot of the events around me. I tried to stay awake, but couldn't. In the end, I nearly gave up.
My turning point came one night. I happened to wake up and by Nialls voice. He sat next to me and I felt that he was holding my hand. I felt the tears from his face dripping on my arm and I realized he was crying.
"Please, darling, you must wake up!" he whispered hoarsely. "I do everything for you, just don't give up and let Liam take control over you."
I swallowed and tried to open my eyes, but couldn't. Niall didn't even see that I tried, which made me wonder how bad it was.
"I've quit you from work and Alva was aware that you can't continue. You need to have a secure life and I promise to give you that security."
I just wanted to scream right out and ask if it really wasn't another way out, but something in me said he was doing the right things for me.
"When you wake up you should stay with me." he continued. "I'll make sure no one hurts you again and I will take care of you. I love you so much!"
Niall sobbed and wiped the tears from my arm.
"I told the police that you are no longer dealing with that as you did before. I said you are aware that it's wrong and they promised not to put you away for something. They simply require you to testify, if you wake up. Liam been on more girls and there are many more who come forward after this."
I was surprised, but at the same time not. Liam had thus been at other girls and treated them wrong? It wasn't just me that was wrong?
"It's ten others girls!" muttering Niall. "And they happened to be in his power almost as bad as you, but it lasted for a longer time."
I wanted to smile and take a breather, because I probably came mild away. Still, I was saddened by all the others. What did they have to endured?
