* A few days later *
We just came home from Keith's funeral. His parents weren't there. They never cared about him. I fell really bad for Keith. Why did I have to agree to a date? Why didn't I see him? Is this all because of me? No! I am not going to think like that! Last time, I almost.... NO! Stop!
" Are you alright?" Niall asked as we got into his car.
" Yeah. I am just sorry for Keith. If only there was a way we could have saved him," I say. Niall nodded.
" What do you want to do today? We have today off," he said.
" I don't know."
" Well, me and the boys are leaving in the morning-" he said, but I didn't hear the rest. He is leaving me? We just got back together! Keith wouldn't be dead if Niall didn't come back! If he was leaving then why did he come back?
" Your leaving?" I asked.
" Did you not hear anything else I said?"
" I was saying that you could come with us."
" I don't know. I do have my adoptive parents," I say. He looked disappointed. " But, I will talk to them!" I say. He gained a little hope.
" Good. You want to, um, go out with me?" he asked slowly. I didn't know if I should answer. Keith asked me out, and look where he is! But, I do love Niall.
" Sure. Where?"
" Nandos!" he said quickly. I laughed. It is good to see almost everything is back to normal. We arrived back to the boys home. I haven't seen them in days!
" Hey, Melinda!" Liam said while hugging me.
" I'm sorry to hear about your friend," he said.
" Yeah. Lets not talk about that. If I can get permission, is it alright if I come with you all?"
" Thanks!" I said as we walked in. I got a hug from each of them, other then Louis who jumped on me.
" I haven't seen you in forever!" he screamed. I laughed.
" Days, actually, but it is nice to see you to!" I correct him. He smiles and finally gets of me. They went to the living room and sat on the couch and started to watch tv. I said I would join them in a minute, and took my phone out and started texting.
@Ryan: Ryan, is it alright if I go away for a while? With my boyfriend?
I don't know why I said boy friend, but I tried it anyway. Seconds later, I got a text.
@ Ryan: I am 18! Bye, Ryan. Tell Liza good bye.
I quickly turned my phone off. I was running away from home. No, I am 18, I have the freedom!
