I wake up in my ugly room living with my step-father Michael. I go to to bathroom and find something to put on my huge bruise on my stomach. I walk back quietly and I put on my favorite t-shirt and shorts then I slip on my vans. Today was the day I was leaving this place. I grab my backpack and pack it with clothes and my money I saved from a I had. I quickly go down the stairs making sure not to make a sound. I get to the last step and trip on his shoes I didn't see. I hear him he's up and yells down "You better not be trying to leave!". I quickly get up and see him at the top of the stairs.
"You leave and your dead." He says to me. He's looking at me holding his belt and takes one step down and I grab the handle and start to run as fast as possible. I live close to town so I keep running until I get there. He's really close behind and he's yelling things I can't understand. My heart is beating so fast if he catches me I'll be dead for sure. I finally get to town and I run past a couple of stores and I see a store with lots of people leaving and going in so I sprint in threw the people and inside the store. I see him get frustrated with all the people but he manages to get threw and he keeps running. I sit against the wall in the store. My heart is still beating like crazy I put my head in my lap and I start to cry. I know I shouldn't because I'm free from him but I do anyways. I hear a voice, I look up and I see a guy about my age with blonde hair and really blue eyes.
"Are you okay?" he asks. He puts his hand out, I take it and he pulls me up.
"Why are you crying?" He looks at me waiting for an answer.
"Well can you at least tell me your name?"
"Sydney." I finally reply to him.
"That's a beautiful name, my name is Niall. He looks at me with a smile. Then he looked at my arms. It was a bad day to wear a short sleeve shirt.
"What happened to your arm?". Wow he asks a lot of questions.
"Nothing." I say but he knew I was lying.
"You can tell me when your ready. Well you want me to walk you home?". He asks.
"NO." I say really fast.
"It's a terrible place i never ever want to even look at that place." I say with a worried face.
"That's alright with me, would you like to come to my place I assure you it wont look like your house." He smiles and I nod my head. He takes my hand and we walk out of the store. I make sure I don't see Michael.
I feel so bad for Sydney. I want to know what happened to her. I know she feels uncomfortable to tell me but I hope soon. I look at her as we walk she is so beautiful. Her smile is perfect. I make a couple jokes to make her smile and try to forget what happened before. Her laugh is so cute. Every couple seconds I look at her to see her face what could of happened to be so bad for such a pretty girl.
He keep looking at me as we walk. I have to say he's pretty cute with his big blue eyes and his pretty funny jokes. We get to his house and he introduced me to his mum. We walk together to the living room and I see four boys.
"Boys I'd like you to meet Sydney, she is going to be staying here for a little bit."Niall says. They all say their names Harry, Liam, Louie, and Zayn. They all stare at me and then go back to there video game.
Niall looks back at me "Are you tired, if you are you can take a nap in my room." He says smiling. I nod my head and he takes me upstairs.
"Do you have pajamas?"
"Shoot I forgot to grab those as I left." He hands me one of his shirts that would be to big for me.
"I think that will fit just right." He smiles. I turn around so he doesn't see. i put on his shirt and go in his bed. He tucks me in and I drift off.
I left my room just thinking about Sydney and how peaceful she looked in my bed. I walk into the living room where the lads are. Harry looks at me.
"Where did you find this girl Niall?"
"Um at the grocery store I saw her sitting on the floor crying."
Louie pipes in "Shes hot nice choice Niall hahaha."
"Okay is she cool or crazy? Liam asks.
"She didn't seem to recognize me, so I think she's cool."
"Well tell us when she up we want to talk to her. Till then Nialler grab a controller and help me kick butt." Said Zayn.
