21. Ireland

Chapter 18


Dan's POV

"Dan? Dan wake up", Avery said as she shook me awake.

"Mm...what is it?", I mumbled as I lazily rubbed my eyes.

"We need to leave now", she whispered.

"It's 4:30.", I said as I pulled the covers back over my head.

Avery ripped the covers off of me and said, "Daniel James Howell, you get out of that bed. We need to be at the airport by 5:15, so you will get up. Now".

Crap. I forgot we were leaving today. So I jumped out of bed and threw on a plain white t-shirt. I looked around my room for my suitcase, but I didn't see it. It wasn't under my bed and it wasn't in my closet.

"Avery, where is my suitcase?", I panicked.

"Dan, relax. I already put it by the front door", Avery said.

"Oh. Alright then", I said as I took a sigh of relief, "Is Phil ready?"

"Yep. He's waiting for us", Avery said.

"Alright. Let's go", I said.

Avery's POV

We were waiting in line at the airport, waiting to get on our plane. The three of us were taking a plane to Ireland. We were planning to stay there until we got everything sorted out.

As we were waiting in line, we got a couple of stares from fans. I think they could tell that we were all tired and didn't really want to talk because they left us alone.

"Attention everyone waiting for the 6:00 am to Ireland, please board the plane now"

We were walking towards the plane when Dan asked, "Where's Phil?"

Phil was not with us. We looked around and found him standing in the same spot that we were at moments before. He was swaying slightly from side to side with his eyes closed. He looked like he was going to fall over at any moment.

"Come on, Phil. We have to get on our plane now", Dan said as he helped Phil walk towards the plane.

We found our seats and Phil immediately fell back asleep in his seat. Our seats were in the middle section. I was seated on one side of Dan and Phil was on the other.

I was looking around the plane and I saw something that I didn't think I'd see on our plane to Ireland.

I turned back around in my seat and whispered, "Oh no".

"What is it?", Dan asked as he began to turn around.

"No no no. Don't turn around", I said, making Dan quickly turn his head forward.

"What, or who, is it?", Dan asked, continuing to look forward and not look at me.

"They're here", I whispered.

" mean...", he began.

"Yes. Ruth and Angelica", I said.

"No. No no no. How did they did they find us?", Dan asked, still not looking at me.

"I...I don't know", I said quietly.

Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw two girls walk by and sit in the row in front of us. It was them.

"Dan...", I whispered.

"Yeah. I know", he said.

"Well...why don't you try and get some sleep?", I suggested.

"Yeah, right. Good idea", Dan said as he moved his eat back slightly and shut his eyes.

I, however, could not fall asleep. I tried listening to music and drinking tea, but neither of those things worked. So I just decided to watch a movie.

I was in the middle of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire when my eyelids started to droop. I tried fighting it, but it was no use. I gave in and let my eyes close.

"Avery! Hurry up we gotta go!", Dan yelled.

"I'm trying!", I screamed as I ran faster and faster down the dark alley.

"Faster! Or Angelica-", Dan began.

Then there was a booming evil laughter that came from behind me.

"Hello Daniel. Hello Avery", Angelica said as she appeared from around the corner. But something about her didn't look right. She had cuts all over her arms and face and her eyes were red.

"A-Angelica...", Dan began. 

I tried running but it was as if my feet were glued to the ground.

"D-Daniel", Angelica mocked as she walked towards Dan

Dan tried running as well, but he wasn't able to either. Then I saw Angelica pull out a gun.

"Wait, what are you doing?", I screamed and tears rolled won my face.

"I'm simply getting my revenge", Angelica shrugged.

She pointed the gun at Dan and he said, "You don't want to do this".

"Oh, but actually, I think I do", she said. 

Right as Angelica pulled the trigger, I woke up in a cold sweat with tears streaming down my face.

"Avery, are you alright?", Dan asked as he looked at me with wide eyes.

"I...I just had a nightmare", I said as I rubbed my temples.

"Well, we're in Ireland now. We have to get off the plane now", Phil said.

I nodded and we departed the plane.


Once we had our luggage, we took a taxi to the place we were staying. 

"Hello. May I have your name?", the middle aged lady at the front desk said in her thick Irish accent.

"Howell", Dan said.

"Ah, yes. I have you right here. You'll be in rooms 231 232. If you'll follow me this way, I'll show you to your room", she said.

The lady led us to a room with two twin beds. The walls were a light tan color and the bed spreads were ghost white. The carpet was dark green and there was a decent sized flat screen TV.

"This is the room for you two gentlemen. Now miss, if you'll follow me next door, I'll show you your room", she said.

The room had a queen bed, which also had ghost colored blankets. The carpet was also dark green and the walls were the same color as Dan and Phil's room. The only difference was that the TV was slightly bigger.

"My name is Maura if you need anything, dear", she said, "You know, I have a daughter that's about your age".

"Oh, what's her name?", I asked.

"Angelica", Maura smiled.

As soon as I heard that name, my heart started beating faster.

"Something wrong, dear?", Maura asked.

" It's nothing. I'm fine", I said.

"Alright. Just ask me if you need anything", Maura said. And then she left.

I knocked on Dan and Phil's door.

"Hi Aver-what's wrong?", Dan asked.

"She...she...", I began, but I couldn't finish.
