My mom slapped me. "Touch anything that's not your room or the bathroom, and we'll take that away, too." She said. I dragged myself to my room. I looked though my books and grabbed my song book. I wrote a bit in it. I picked up my iPod. I've always wanted to be famous, but my parents rarely let me talk, let alone sing. "Why?" I thought out loud. I jumped at the sound of my own voice. Why me? Why do I have to live? I thought. "Well, what now?" I thought out loud. I got up. I was so hungry cuz my parents rarely fed me. They said I was fat. I walked downstairs, hopping they left already. I sighed in relief and walked to the fridge. I opened it and pulled out a couple carrots. I bit into them and it tasted so good. All I ever got was bread. I ate the carrots quickly and walked outside to the front lawn. If it was 5, then my parents would be back at midnight. I fell asleep on the lawn. When I woke up, I sat up trying to remember where I was. I looked back at the house. Oh ya... Mom and dad are gone out... I thought. I walked back in and the power was out. I walked back out in confusion. What happened to the power? It was on a little while ago... Wait! What time is it!? I checked my phone and it was 9. I sighed. "Excuse me!" Someone called. I looked up at the road. "Do you know where the airport is? We're a bit lost." They asked. I shook my head. "Sorry... I don't..." I said. "Oh... Umm..." They trailed off. "Mind if we stay for a while? We kind have no where to go now." One laughed. "Ummm... Sure... But if my parents come home early, then..." I shuttered at the thought. 5 boys got out of the car. That's when I realized they were One Direction. I only know them from my playlist on my iPod. I let them into my cold house. It was winter, which means no heat. "I'm sorry there's no heat... The power's out... Living in the middle of nowhere has no upside except for the fact that when my parents are gone out, no one can tell them I left the house..." I said. "It's alright, love, but why would someone tell if you were outside?" I think... Harry? asked. "Well... Uhh... you see.... My parents... They don't let me leave my room unless I have to use the bathroom... If I try to come downstairs, they'll beat me... My parents hate me... They call me fat, beat me, call me names... I'm not allowed to speak... I only get a piece of bread a day..." I said. They all fell silent. "I'm sorry..." Niall? said.
"We're lost!" I said. "No we're not! We just can't find the airport!" Zayn said, tightening his grip on the wheel. "That's called being lost!" I raised my voice. "Both of you! Stop! Look, there's someone we can ask!" Loui said. I looked to where Loui was pointing. There was a very beautiful girl who looked about 17. "Ya, OK..." I said, not taking my eyes off her. "Excuse me!" Zayn called. She looked up at the road. "Do you know where the airport is? We're a bit lost." Liam asked. I shook my head. "Sorry... I don't..." She said. "Oh... Umm..." Liam trailed off. "Mind if we stay for a while? We kind have no where to go now." Loui laughed. "Ummm... Sure... But if my parents come home early, then..." She shuttered at a thought. She let them into her cold house. "I'm sorry there's no heat... The power's out... Living in the middle of nowhere has no upside except for the fact that when my parents are gone out, no one can tell them I left the house..." She said. "It's alright, love, but why would someone tell if you were outside?" Harry asked. "Well... Uhh... you see.... My parents... They don't let me leave my room unless I have to use the bathroom... If I try to come downstairs, they'll beat me... My parents hate me... They call me fat, beat me, call me names... I'm not allowed to speak... I only get a piece of bread a day..." She said. They all fell silent. "I'm sorry..." I said. Who would do such a thing to a beautiful girl? She sat on a chair in a corner while we sat on the couch. She looked so sad, helpless, shy. She was shivering and her lips looked blue. "Are you cold?" I asked. 'A bit, but I'm used to it..." She said. I felt so bad for her. "Would you like anything? A book to read? A drink?" She asked. "A book if you wouldn't mind." Zayn said. "Alright... Come and look... I don't know what you like... Ummm... I'll set up a fire out back when I get back..." She said. Zayn followed her to her room. I tagged along. She seemed so nice. She was socially awkward, I could tell. If she's not allowed to speak out leave her house, then who would she talk to? No one. She grabbed some blankets, Zayn grabbed a book, and I just followed quietly. We walked out back and the boys were waiting. She gave them some blankets and lit a fire in a little wood stove that was outside. She sat a small distance from us. "So, can you tell us about our life? If you don't want to, you don't have to." Harry said. She looked up. "Well... The last time my parents were nice to me, I was 5. I lived a life of hell. My whole life, I have never been happy. Never once have I smiled. My parents just raised me to do things for them. I hate my life, I've cut myself more than once... I have no friends and I just sit in my room with my iPod my parents don't even know I have. I listen to music, write songs, books, and I cry myself to sleep ever night... I have a hard time trusting people..." She said, hanging her head. "Do you sing?" Liam asked. "I've never tried... I'd rather not now..." She sighed and looked at her feet.. I looked at the boys. 'What do we do?' Liam mouthed. We shrugged. 'I feel bad... We should make her happy.' I mouthed. The boys nodded. "Who wants to play truth or dare?" Loui asked. Our hands shot up, even... I don't even know her name. "I think we should say our names first." Liam said. "I'm Blake." She said quietly. "I'M HARRY!"/"I'm Zayn." He said, not looking up from his book. "I'm Liam"/"I'm Loui!"/"I'm Niall." I said. I saw a very very small smile n her face. I smiled at her. "OK! Blake! Truth or dare?" Loui asked. "Truth..." She said. "If you could sneak out right now and leave with us, or stay here, what would you choose?" He asked. "You guys... I don't wanna stay here..." She said. "It's settled than! You're coming with us!" Loui said. Her eyes widened. "W... WHAT!?!?" She exclaimed. "I can't just leave! They'd find me and kill me!" She said. " No they won't. We'll be with you the whole time. No way in hell I... I mean we would never let anything happen to you." I said. Shit, I almost gave it way. "I can't just go with you... I'd be in the way..!" She said. "No you wouldn't! We're happy to take you so you're not stuck in this hell." Liam said. We all nodded. "You'd really do that for me? I mean, we don't even know each other." She said. "We're sitting right in front of you, aren't we? Here. I', Harry, nice to meet you." Harry said, reaching out a hand. A small smile spread across her lips. 'It's working! She's happier!' I mouthed. We all smiled at her. We carried on with our game. "Niall, truth or dare?" Harry asked. "Truth is probably the safest idea after what just happened." I said, looking at Loui who was dared to throw his shirt way after running around yelling random words. "Out of Demi and Blake, who would you kiss right now?" He asked. Shit... I would choose Blake by far. I mumbled Blake's name. "What?" Harry asked. "Blake..." I said a bit louder. She looked at me with wide, beautiful eyes.
