5. Leaving Them
Anna has to go home today, so I am taking her to Ireland where my mum will be able to take care of her. I just really don't wont her to go because I am going to miss her so much. I pulled 2 of her suitcases behind me and she pulled a smaller one so it wasn't a lot of pressure. All eight boys followed behind us to get on the plane to drop Anna off in Mullingar.

I got off the plane and Niall carried off the suitcases. Maura, Chris, mum, and Bobby were all standing there and waiting for us. "Mum!" Niall ran to give her a hug and they laughed as he hugged his dad and step dad. Then all the boys gave me a hug goodbye, except Niall. He stood there like a statue, not wanting to do anything. I felt the baby, and I rested my hand on my 6 month old bump. Niall looked down and placed his hand on my tummy. "Dont worry, daddy will be home soon." He said and I about lost my sense.
Niall looked me in the eyes, he was crying. "You're going to be a good mother to him or her, Anna. I know it." He said and I hugged him, sobbing. "I dont want you to go, Niall!" I said through sobs. I wish he could stay, but he has to go live on. "I know", he said, "I'll be home in 6 months, hopefully sooner." I looked him in the eyes and he tried to smile. "I better go." Niall said and I held his hand and pulled him back. "I'm nothing without you. But with this baby, it's a piece of you." I said and he actually did smile.
I let go of her hand and headed back torwards the plane to go to Norway. All the boys fake smiled and followed behind me. I turned around and Anna was in tears, holding on to Maura's hand. I walked onto the plane and I was crying too. "...it's a piece of you." The words kept playing in my head as we flew to Norway. I will never forget her smile, laugh, and everything I love about her.
