I woke up to Niall carrying me. "Hey." He said softly when he saw I was awake. "Hi." I said with a shy smile. He smiled a bit. "Where are we?" I asked. "You're new home." He said. I looked to see a big house. He walked through the door and I looked around. "Whoa..." I said. He smiled. "Nice, isn't it." He said. "Ya, it is..." I said. "Come on, I'll show you your room. Everything is there." He said. He carried me up the stairs and to a room at the end of a long hall to the right. "You do know I can walk, right?" I asked. "Ya, but what's the fun in that?" He countered. I rolled my eyes with a smile. "You're smiling! Mission accomplished!" He said. I laughed at him. He put me down. He lead me into the room. It was huge. It had a big bed with my sheets and cover on it in the middle of the room. The walls were a darkish purple and the floor was redwood flooring, my dresser was an orangish colour, my new bookshelf hung on the wall in a cool way just above my bed, I had a nice white painted desk with a blue laptop, a black keyboard and mouse (all wireless), and a green puzzle light hanging above my bed. "Whoa... Again..." I said. Niall laughed. "Come here." He said, grabbed my wrist. He pulled me over to the closet sliding doors. He opened it and it was 2/3 of the room size. I hugged Niall. "Thank you. First you save me, now I have an amazing room." I said. He hugged me. "Like Liam said, it's the least we can do." He said. "Niall! Come here!" Liam called. I let go of him and spread myself over the bed. It was the softest bed EVER! Niall came walking back in. "I can see you like the bed." He said. "It's so COMFY!" I said. He laughed. "Come on, the guys and I are taking you shopping and to dinner." He said. "You don't have to." I said, keeping a straight face like I always did. "Well, we want to. Come on." He said.
*An Hour Later*
The boys took me shopping. I now have so many clothes. I didn't even want the boys to get me anything, but they insisted, scratch that, forcefully said they were anyway. I don't know the name of the place we went to for supper, but it was so good. They boys went to bed cuz it was getting late now. It was about 12 in the after noon when we got here. I threw on my new warm pyjamas. It was spring, but I wanted to be warm. Or, at least my pants were warm, I have a short sleeve pyjama shirt with a nerdy kitten on it. Around midnight, I still couldn't fall asleep. I was actually scared. I crawled out of bed. Everyone's door was closed except for Niall's. I started down the long hall. He was the second door on the right. when you come up the stairs. My door was visible from the stairs cuz the door was right at the end. When I approached Niall's room, a small light came from it. I poked my head in and he was on his laptop. He looked up at me and I stood directly in the doorway with my hands behind my back. "Is everything OK?" He asked. "Ya... Just I'm kinda scared." I said. I sounded like I was 5. "Come on then." He said, holding out his hand. I locked my finger tips with his and he lean me around some stuff without getting out of bed. He sat me next to him and wrapped his arms around my shoulders. I rested my head on his shoulder. I watched his screen. He was watching YouTube, Game Grumps. (I know he doesn't really... At least I don't think, but still...) We sat for a while and laughed silently at videos. "Better?" He asked. I nodded. "Would you like to stay here just in case?" He asked. "Well, if it's not a bother..." I said. "Of course it's not. You're part of the family now, nothing is a bother." He said. I'm part of this family? These people loved me like family? Well, I do feel safe and protected with them, and I loved them like family... Maybe this won't be so bad. I kinda like it here anyway. I feel like a person, not just a punching bag. I thought. "I'm part of the family?" I asked. "Yes! Of course you are! We love you like we love each other and our real families!" He said. "Really?" I asked with my hopes of a good life rising. He nodded. I hugged him from the side. "It feels good to hug someone, doesn't it?" He asked. "Ya... It feels nice to be loved, too." I said. Having a family, even if we're not the same blood line, felt good. I fell asleep and dreamt happily.
*The Next Morning*
I woke up and Niall was gone. I was about to panic when I realized he was probably eating. I awkwardly, slowly, and quietly walked downstairs. The boys were in the kitchen, talking. I walked in awkwardly. "Oh come now! No need to be awkward! You're family now!" Zayn said. I smiled shyly and walked in with my hands behind my back. Someone's hands went over my eyes. "Guess who!" They said. I thought. Harry, Zayn, Niall, and Liam were at the table. "Louis." I said. He sighed. "How'd you know?" He asked. "Only one not sitting." I said. The guys laughed a bit as Loui hung his head and sat down. I just stood in a corner. Niall pulled out a chair next to him. "Come on now! Don't be shy! We wouldn't bite! Well, maybe Harry." Liam said. The boys laughed as Harry stared at me with beady eyes and bared his teeth jokingly. I smiled weakly and sat down. "Would you like anything to eat?" Niall asked. "Toast is fine." I said in almost a whisper. "Blake, all you've eaten is bread. Have some eggs or something." Loui said. "Well... I've never had eggs..." I said. "Zayn, you know how to make scrabbled eggs. Would you please?" Harry asked. Zayn stood up and walked to the stove not too far away. "We won't like Niall cook. He'd burn his milk by accident." Liam whispered to me. I snickered. "What?" Niall asked. I tried to hold back a laugh, but it didn't work. "Can he make toast?" I whispered to Liam. "Nope, almost burned down the house last time." He whispered back. I tried not to smile. "OK! I know your talking about me! What are you saying!" Niall said. "It's kinda ironic. He loves food, but he couldn't cook to save his life." Liam whispered, making me laugh. "Oh! Gossip! I want in!" Loui said, wiggling his fingers weirdly. I laughed a bit more.
I knew they were talking about me, but they wouldn't tell me what they were saying. All I can say is, seeing Blake happy, laughing and smiling her beautiful smile, made me happy, too. She was part of our fun little family, but I wish she was family in a different way. "OK, do you really wanna know what we're saying?" Blake asked. I nodded and folded my arms as I waited. She looked at Liam who was smiling. "Well, too bad! You can't know!" Liam said. Blake smiled and laughed. I couldn't help but smile a bit. She hugged me from the side. "I would tell you, but I don't wanna make you mad, I'm sorry." She said. My expression softened. Liam whispered something to Loui, making him laugh. Zayn put a plate in front of her with a smile. "Thank you, Zayn." She said with a smile. "Anytime." He said, sitting back down. She ate her eggs happily. "I think she might be a mini Niall." Zayn said. "Oh god. We'll be out of food 2 times faster now!" Harry said, holding his head in his hand and shaking his head. I laughed. "The more Nialls, the better." I said. Blake laughed. "I'm sorry, but that means the world would be out of food quickly." Blake said. "Who wants to play Assassin's Creed Blackflag?" I asked. "What's that?" Blake asked. I grabbed her wrist and pulled her to the game room. "Whoa! That's a big TV!" She said. I nodded. In meters, 25 by 17. I turned on the Xbox and handed her a controller. I showed her how to use the controller. We played on Multiplayer and she learned quickly.
*An Hour Later*
Blake was smiling ear to ear as we played C.O.D. "I'll get you! I swear I will!" She said. Next thing I know, I was dead. "My god you learn fast." I said. "Well, I like video games now," She said. "but Assassin's Creed is better." We played a bunch of other games. The rest of Assassin's Creed, Battlefield 1 through 4, Devil May Cry, Grand Theft Auto 1 though 4, and all the Bioshock games. "I love this!" She said. I smiled at her.
The boys and I watched them from the doorway for a while. "They're meant for each other, like come on. They get along so well. It's like she forgot he kissed her. Just look at them." Zayn said. "It's true! I walked by this morning and Blake was sleeping on Niall's shoulder cuz she got scared. And let's not forget the food." Liam said. "She looks so happy with him. He's like her big brother. Now that she has smiled, Niall keeps her smiling." Loui said. "You're right. They actually look cute together. Niall smiles all the time when he's with her and she does the same. They probably don't know it, but they like each other. If Blake has been cooped up for so many years, than she's probably confused by the feeling." I said. They started playing Mario Cart. They kept on switching systems to play all sorts of games. I had to admit, I was jealous of Niall, but if they were happy, than I'm happy. "No! I'm gonna win! You can't beat me!" Blake said. Niall just laughed at her. No one could beat Niall in Mario Cart. "Ya right." He said. Next thing you know, Blake beat him and it was her first time playing. "How the...!? What the...!? How did...!?" Niall threw his remote in anger. Blake laughed her cute little laugh. "I beat you! What you gonna do about it?" She asked playfully. Niall threw her over his shoulder and she screamed. "Niall!" She laughed. "No one beats me!" Niall said. The boys and I laughed. They, well, Niall looked at us. Blake had to tilt her head even though we would be upside down. "You saw that, right?! She obviously hacked the game!" He said. "No, mate, she's just better than you." Loui said. "Impossible!" Niall said. Blake whispered something. "Oh god!" He said and put her down. She ran upstairs. "She's a distraction. We know you like her." Liam said. We all walked forward. "Shh! She'll hear you." He hissed. "No! She's just a friend to me." He said in case she heard. "Love's blind, mate. Face it. As long as she's within 20 meters, she'll be a distraction to you." I said, patting his back. "So, why'd you put her down?" Zayn asked. "I'd rather not this shirt get wet." He said. "Oh..." We all said awkwardly. Blake came back in.
