We left after that whole...episode. I went home and slept after Alex dropped me off.
I woke up to a knocking. I decided not to answer it. They can come back later. They knocked again.
"Ughhh," I groaned getting up, they knocked again, "I'm coming!" I yelled. I opened the door to find Harry standing there.
"Thank God you answered," He said, "I just came to apologize about last night. I don't remember a lot of what I did but I remember yelling at you and I'm sorry, I just am having a lot of emotions right now and I guess getting drunk doesn't help he laughed. I smiled.
"You want to come in?" I asked.
"Um ya sure." He smiled back, "I promise on my life I won't do anything like last night either." He said sincerely. I opened the door wide and told him to take a seat on the couch.
We talked for a long time about music, about Niall, even his crush on Maddie. He told me about how he was going to visit his family in a month or so when we're on Christmas break. He told me stories about his times with his family and how crazy they were. He thought they were embarrassing at the time but now they always laugh about their fun times together.
I envied his ability to tell his family everything and anything. I don't have that relationship with my family. I don't tell them if I lose a friend, if I like a boy, or any type of drama whatsoever. I let them find out themselves if at all.
"Sam, I just wanted to let you know that I know what you're going through right now. I mean Niall was one of my best friends. We all miss him. And one day whether its in a day, a week, or a year he will be found. This Earth is only so big and it hasn't been that long. Lets just hope and pray that when they find him he will be ok." He smiled at me. I smiled as a tear rolled down my cheek.
"Thanks Harry." I smiled and gave him a hug. After our conversation he got going. I said bye and then plopped down on the couch and turned on the news for the first time in a month. I watched hopefully as the commercial ended.
"Breaking News. A school bus as been high-jacked and driven into a river. We are still awaiting more details but as far as we know there have been no deaths and only minor injuries." I watched as I imagined how the parents of the kids must feel. I wonder how Niall's parents feel right now. Probably worse then I do. I got up and got a glass of water.
"19 year old Niall Horan is still missing but we just got in that police officers have new information that might help with the investigation." I reporter said. I coughed on my water and then processed what the lady just said. I dropped my glass as it shattered onto the floor and bolted out the door. I pulled up at an apartment and bolted up the stairs. I pounded at the door.
"God dammit Maddie open the door!" I yelled. She opened the door a few seconds after.
"What's up?" She asked.
"Come. Now." I said.
"Ok let me just.."
"No. NOW." I said firmly and she nodded.
We ran down the stairs as I dialed Harry's number.
"Hello?" He answered after a few rings.
"Harry meet me at the police station right now." I said.
"Um why? Are you in trouble?" He asked.
"No. It's Niall." I said and I heard him gasp and then he hung up.
I pulled out of the parking lot and drove as fast as I could without running the risk of getting pulled over. When we got to the police station Harry was already there with Liam, Lou, and Zayn. We all bolted in through the doors.
"Hello, how may I help you?" The lady at the desk asked.
"I'm here to see agent Finn." I said and she looked up.
"He's a busy man can it wait?" She asked.
"It's urgent." I said.
"Ok, this way." She said getting up and leading us into the office.
"Agent Finn? There's people here for you." She said. I heard the sound of a deep voice and she opened the door revealing the familiar face of the agent that delivered the news that I still cannot get over.
"Sam! How's it going?" He smiled.
"I was watching the news and the reported sa-" I started.
"I'm sorry Sam but this is confidential. No one can know about it but the people working on the case. Trust me you're going to be the first to know, when we can tell you." He sighed.
"Finn please!" Harry said.
"Sorry I can't do anything. "
"UGH!" Zayn said annoyed.
"Listen man! We have all been on the edge of our seats waiting for this news!" Louis yelled.
"I can't tell you! That's the end of this conversation" He said firmly. There was a pause.
"Are you going to find him?" I asked trying to fight the lump in my throat. Finn sighed.
"Sam, I'm going to be honest with you. The lead we have right now isn't much. We have to work with anything to keep this case open." He told us.
I looked over as I saw harry shake his head and storm out of the office. The rest of us followed.
"I can't believe that guy! He told the news that just to give the people 'hope?'Ridiculous!" He yelled angrily.
I didn't say anything. The one time I turned on the news I got my hopes up for nothing. This is great. After a long silence I felt my phone start to buzz in my pocket. I sighed and looked at the name and I swear my heart stopped.
