I woke up right on time and quietly slipped on my shoes. I crept over to my window and opened it slowly but it made an ear wrenching screech. I froze and went completely silent.
"Sam?" I heard from the other room. I stayed silent. Whoever it was must have gone back to sleep. I continued to cautiously open my window. After the space was large enough for me to fit through jumped through it onto the roof below. I started to close the window but stopped right about where it made the loud noise before. I turned around.
"Hey!" I heard coming from the mouth of my older brother. Shit.
"Go to bed." I said turning around.
"I know you're going to find Niall, I found your plane tickets" He said the words startling me.
"Well what are you gonna do to stop me?" I asked.
"Nothing." He said. The words confused me.
"What?" I asked pausing.
"I would do the same. I just wanted to say goodbye because I knew you wouldn't." He told me and I smiled.
"Thank you." I said to him.
"Don't worry about it. now go before mom and dad wake up, and make sure to call me whenever you can, I won' tell anyone, but just in case something happens it's good to have someone know where you are." He told me.
"I will, I promise. I love you." I said and he returned the gesture as I hopped down off the roof and ran down to the street corner where Liam's car was parked. I jumped into the passenger seat and looked over at him. His eyes were sleepy and his hair was a mess.
"What took you so long?" He asked.
"Nothing, just over slept a little, lets go." I said buckling in.
We stopped by the front of the school and I slipped the letters Liam and I wrote under the lose brick and we drove off to the airport after eating breakfast.
We loaded onto the plane under fake names and sunglasses. I watched outside the window as LA slowly faded away.
I sat in my seat and took a deep breathe. I looked around the plane. Just two rows diagonal from us there was a couple holding a baby girl who was sleeping. I smiled to myself and looked over at Liam who was reading a book. I looked back up and made eye contact with the flight attendant and gave her a small smile. As soon as I did so she quickly turned around and scurried off into the first class section of the plane.
We sat in silence for a long time, long enough from Liam to be on the last few pages of his book.
"Hey I'm gonna go to the bathroom ok?"I said turning to him.
"Oh ya sure." He said looking up from his book and smiling a little.
I got up from my seat and walked to the back of the plane swiftly. I looked back at Liam to see his nose back in his book and I jumped a little as I knocked into the flight attendants cart.
"Oh I'm so sorry!" I said backing up a little and then bending down to help her pick up what I knocked down. I handed her a couple of forks and napkins. I looked up at her, it was the same girl from earlier.
"Oh no don't worry about it, happens all the time." She said her head still down towards the ground as she picked up the rest of the utensils on the floor. Something about her was familiar.
She looked up at me and we made eye contact and I saw panic flash her face and I felt my stomach jerk.
I gulped and licked my lips then whispered her name.
