24. To be found
I woke in the middle of the night. I heard a car driving towards the house and I heard how it stopped. I was numb all over, but chose to lie perfectly still. I heard two car doors opened and then voices.
"This is the only abandoned house in the area."
I sat up. It was Louis's voice. Then I heard how Harry answered him.
"But she should be here, or anywhere else?"
I looked around the room and noticed that I couldn't hide. I saw a closet, the door to the room and that was it. What would I do?
"We go in and look around?" murmured Louis and I heard they had to open the door into the house. I noted that they had flash lights with them and I realized that I was stuck. To still not be seen entirely, I took the blankets with me and put me under the bed. It was a dirty floor, but I didn't care.
"Do you look around here, I go upstairs." I heard Louis say. Then I heard how he went up the stairs and I caught a glimpse of a flash light at the doorstep.
"Tell me if you see anything!" shouted Harry and Louis laughed a little bit.
Louis chose another room and I heard his step on the floor. He walked around and checked in all closets, through all doors and everywhere. Eventually he came to the room, where I really was. I saw his feet, I saw how he came in and he went straight to the closet. He opened it and sighed lightly. He was on his way to the bed and I could feel my whole body shook. He sighed, and he seemed not at all happy. I saw his hand, took hold of the mattress to lift up the bed.
"Are you done?" cried Harry. I puffed out when Louis dropped the bed.
"It's empty here." Louis answered him and I heard Harry laughed a little bit.
"Come down, there's no idea to look here."
Louis left the room and I heard how he went down the stairs. I felt my heart jumped, but I puffed out.
When I pushed the air out the dust on the floor began to move up. I knew immediately how it started tickling in the nose. I felt a sneeze was coming. I heard how Louis and Harry walked out the door and then I couldn't stop myself. I hitched throughout the body and in the end I sneezed.
There was silence outside the house and then I heard how they came back.
"Someone sneezed!" exclaimed Louis. They stood and listened and I felt the whole I was cold. Even one more sneeze was coming and I did everything to hold it back. I realized that I would be discovered. I couldn't stop and I sneezed again.
Harry tore me out of my hiding place and Louis grabbed my arm. I saw that they really were gloating and direct Harry grinned happily.
"We knew that you couldn't hide!"
"Your beloved Nialler gossiped in the end. He refused to let us help him with the car and we realized that he was with you."
I kicked, I hit them with my arms and I did everything to get away from them. Finally pushed Louis me up against the wall and took almost a stranglehold around my neck.
"You're fucking make yourself silly."
I swallowed and felt how he pressed his fingers around my neck. He pushed so hard that I eventually dropped the air.
"Stop it!" Harry screamed and tore off Louis from me. "You shall not kill her!"
I sat down and started to shake. I snatched after air and felt my lungs finally began to function normally.
"But, damn it!" shouted Louis and he showed that he was cursed. "She wont believe that she owns us."
Harry pushed him away a bit and then looked at me.
"Is it okay?"
I shook directly on my head and looked coldly up at him.
"I don't want to be with you and you don't let me go home."
Harry held out his hand and helped me up. I obeyed and stood up.
"We go home now!" he mumbled and held my hand. He then looked cold at Louis.
"And if you try to strangle her again I'll kill you."
Louis snorted cold and went before us out to the car. I gave up. I realized I didn't have a single chance against these guys.
"Home to my family?" I still asked and immediately shook Harry on the head.
"We're going to our house, we're your family now."
