"Lauren! OMG! Lo bear you're back!" Everybody yelled and hugged her. She looked shocked even after my warnings but that was understandable.
"Uncle Louis! Harry!" she cried again and they gave her a bone crushing hug. El and Perrie cried and Zayn and Liam helped Louis and Harry with hugging Lauren. I smiled and kissed Emma.
"I haven't thought about thanking you babe. So thank you for texting them, the cops. You know me better than I know myself. I should have known that I'd so something reckless" she kissed me back.
"I just thought that they had to know that we were there. I thought that they'd be there sooner than we would. Lucky for you they came just in time. And now mister Horan...
Never and when I say never I really mean never! Never do something like that again. I thought that you'd die!" I smiled and kissed her again.
"for you two I'd do everything. You are more important than my own life. I love you" she smiled and we hugged. I felt tears trough my shirt. I said the words, I love her and now I really told it, after two months of liking each other we would use the word LOVE. But everything that happened yesterday and the position she put herself into it was the right time to say that.
"L-love? You real-really love me?" I nodded and kissed her soft lips.
"I love you, even more after what you did for me and Lauren yesterday. The danger you put youself into. I love you sweetheart." I saw that she got tears in her eyes.
"Don't cry babe. This is a family reunion. You aren't suppose to cry" she giggled.
"Look at what you have done since you received that call" "You're right, again. That's why I am in love you" she laughed and walked to the girls. They embraced her and I walked to the boys, who were still hugging Lauren.
"Niall! Explain everything! How is it possible that you've found her?" Louis asked me but I shook my head.
"Later. First I need to make Lauren dinner and put her to bed. We can talk after that. Or now but then Lauren needs to go to the girls" Lauren had to forget about what happened with her in those two months and if I kept reminding her of it, it wouldn't work. They nodded and I put Lauren in my arms, her head in my direction again.
"Lauren why don't you go to aunt Perrie and Eleanor? They have missed you so much" she smile and nodded happily when I brought her to the girls, who happily embraced her and sat her next to them on the couch.
"We deserve an explanation Niall! Now!" I nodded and walked to the kitchen with the boys behind me.
"He called, just to let me know what he was doing to her and that I wasn't able to do anything. But he didn't thought about phone tracker.
After he called I went to the police and they got to know where he was" the understood it till here.
"Why didn't you called us directly? We could have been there together" Zayn said, but I shook my head.
"They said that they'd send a team to check the area. I didn't had time to wait. He was there then, that was for sure. I couldn't miss the chance that he'd leave. I asked the place and got it. I drove there and well" Liam looked worried. "Please tell me you didn't do anything stupid Niall" I looked down, I did something stupid, something really stupid. "Niall!"
"I'm sorry Liam but I had to get her back! We got there and I heard her cry. When I thought about a plan he must have noticed us because he just stood there. One second they were inside and the other they stood there. Gun to her head. Making me useless" the lads gasped and I nodded
"I tried to convince him that he had to leave her-" "It worked?" Harry's voice showed that I didn't had faith in that. I shook my head to give him right.
"I said that he could have me instead of her. First he didn't agreed but after a little fight between me and Emma-" "Fight? You start a fight when you know that a idiot with a gun to your daughter's head is there? That in one second he can kill her, kill you!" Liam sounded shocked and angry and I couldn't give him wrong.
"she suggested to take her place. I didn't allowed her to. That was it. But after that he got the idea of taking them both. I agreed. They'd have each other" Zayn looked angry but I told him the whole story before he could judge me.
"I just had to pay the price. He'd kill me but they'd live. It would be worth it" my story confused them.
"But you're here with them. Both! How is that possible?" Liam yelled. I shook my head, thinking back about how scary this all must have been for Lauren.
"He dropped Lauren and I was ready to die for my girls. But Emma - as smart as she is - called the police that we were there even before that idiot showed up. They came just in time. Shoot him in his arm before he'd shoot me" they looked worried, angry but also happy.
"You idiot! You think that that was the best decision? You could have got killed!" Harry yelled and I nodded.
"To be hones with you... I didn't even thought about that, I just had to save her, no matter the price" they hugged me and I smiled, now the angry shouts were gone we all could be happy again.
"But when did this all happened? You said yesterday that you'd have her back! How did you know?" I laughed "because this all happened yesterday. When I called we were in a hospital and she had to stay there for the night" more indignant looks from their side and that happily feeling from before was completely gone again.
"You have her back for more than a day and yet you didn't told us? Don't you think that we wanted to know as well?" I nodded, I deserved this. They missed Lauren as well.
"It's just-" "It's just what!?! That we don't belonged in the picture? I thought that we were a family Niall! Give us one good reason why you didn't told it!!!" I knew I deserved this but Zayn was really pissed off.
"After everything that happened I had to be there for Lauren. It was hard enough for her and if I kept calling and telling everything... Would that work? No it wouldn't! I was busy enough with making her be calm and relaxed, to stop her from having nightmares! Are you satisfied boys? I just forgot it, she wasn't allowed to have anyone else than me and Emma with her and I didn't knew how to say it!" they nodded, still a bit grumpy.
"But I have to make dinner for Lauren since she probably haven't ate good for the past 2 months"
Poor Lauren, after this she wasn't even allowed to eat something good.
"Build it up again. Her stomach isn't ready for too much food yet. Everytime a little more till she's ready for fully meals again"
That was what the doctor told me.
So I made her a sandwich and Lauren ate them quickly before I took her upstairs.
"Guys! I don't think I'll be down again today. Emma do you stay here or does anyone need to bring you home?" she laughed and shook her head. "I can stay here, I think that your bed will be empty tonight so I can use it" I laughed and nodded before I walked up the stairs with Lauren in my arms.
"Daddy can you stay here please? Only if you don't mind, it doesn't matter if you don't." Lauren shyly asked after I helped her in her pajamas, brushed her teeth and washed her hair and face. She looked more human after I did that, the only negative side of this was that the bruises were more visible than before.
"I wasn't planning on leaving you ever again baby" I whispered and laid next to her, cloths still on, to make her feel saver. When she cuddled and moved a little closer to me I kissed her head and she fell asleep. I had her back again. And this time I'd do everything to make her stay with me forever! No one, no boy could ever steal her from me.
