4. chapter 3
i woke up in a unfamiliar bed, i panicked and started to get up but as soon as i did i fell screaming in pain because of my knee. Niall came running in with four guys. i panicked and backed away quickly. "its okay Ashley these are my friends, harry, Louis, Liam, and Zayn." but the he saw my knee and so did i, it was purple and swollen. "we are taking you to the doctors!" he picked me up and just me and him went to the doctors, the others stayed behind. they ex rayed me and said i had a broken knee. they asked how this happened and i lied and said, "i uhh fell down" which wasn't completely a lie. "can you lift up your shirt and sleeves please" i hesitated but i did and the doctor and Niall gasped and all the cuts, burns, and bruises.
"how did you get all these, and answer truthfully" so i told them " when my mom left my dad, Mark he got depressed and became an alcoholic and when ever i did something bad like talk when i wasn't supposed to or get the wrong beer or not come when he told me to get over to where he was i would be punished." they both looked so surprised and worried for me, she started writing on her paper like crazy and i quickly said, "but i deserved it, im bad and i had to be punished" the lady look at me with sympathy. "did he do anything else." asked the lady "well every sunday night he told me to go to his room and do stuff... but he said every father did this so it was fine." Niall was in tears by then and the doctor was writing like crazy and i got confused. "why do you guys look so sad, every body who did something wrong got punished right? and every father does that to his daughter right?" the doctor said " no one deserves that and almost no father does that, may i ask your name and age" noticing i was only 100 pounds. "my name is Ashley and I'm 16 years old." Niall looked so sad. the doctor didn't say anything else about that and just put my knee cast in and showed me how to use the crutches.
we got home and Ashley went to go lie down and get some rest. i told the guys about the whole thing and made them promise not to tell her i told them and they promised. "is she gonna be living with us now?" asked harry, "yes" i said and he was exited.
