8. Chapter 8

Liam’s POV:

 

K: I never disappeared.

L: You never disappeared?

K: No.

L: Then what really happened.

K:  I called my friend J one day and he came to pick me up. We went out to eat and walk in the park. To talk about me and the whole fame thing. Honestly, I didn’t like it, all the attention was way too much to handle. It was getting dark and we were pretty far from Simon’s house, so he told me to stay with him at his hotel because it was closer and I did. That night we stayed up talking and watching movies together. When we woke up J had to get on a flight to Australia. I wanted to go with him so he called management and they said that it was ok.

L: So you went to Australia with him. Is that a bad thing?

K: No, I’m not done yet.

    By now Kaitlyn and I were sitting on the couch.

K: When we got to Simon’s house no one was home, but I had my keys. After walking in and letting J inside I turned around and locked the door. I went up to my room with J hot on my heals. We got there and he jumped on my bed while I went to my closet to pack my clothes. J and I were at the top of the stairs about to leave when I heard talking from downstairs. I heard Niall’s Irish accent and he was talking to Simon; ‘Simon I woke up expecting her to be next to me, but she wasn’t. I’m really worried. What if she found out about what happened between me and that girl I met.’ And Simon was like; ‘Niall I doubt Kat found out that you cheated on her.’ I don’t really remember what else they were talking about. I was tired of listening and J could tell that I was about to start crying. We walked back to my room, trying not to make any noise, and out climbed out the fire escape. I ran to J’s car with him trailing behind and putting my luggage in the back with his. I was crying and hard, Niall had cheated on me with some girl he just met. I grabbed J’s phone and texted Niall saying; ‘Hey heard what happened between you and your girlfriend. Just so you know she might break up with you.’ Niall texted back saying; ‘I’ve some time don’t I?’ I texted back saying doubt it, Then I grabbed my phone and texted Niall saying, ‘We’re done’, but I guess it didn’t send. I stupidly blocked his number, deleted his contact and changed my number. I’ve never talked to him since. I bet he doesn’t even know what I’m on about so technically I don’t have a boyfriend. If you asked Niall he would say I do.

L: Wow. I think you should send it, but before you do put, from the day, then in quotations; I disappeared. Press send then resend the other text.

K: But won’t that break him?

L: Serves him well.

K: Liam James Payne! I have never seen this side of you...I can see where I get my revenge skills from….

L: Very funny. Find a new boyfriend it’s been 3 years, but not Harry. Oh, I know who….

K: I don’t need to find a new boyfriend Liam….

L: Why not?

K: Because I told Ryan that I wasn’t going to give up on him and I’m not! Not until I know why he acted like he did when I was leaving!

    My voice was raising and I knew this wasn’t going to end well for me or Liam.

L: Forget him! He clearly didn’t love you and even if he did he would be using you for your fame!

K: What fame! I’m NOT famous you are! If he didn’t love me then I wouldn’t know anything I know about him!

L: YOU DON’T NEED HIM! HE WAS A JERK ANYWAY!

K: WHAT’S YOUR PROBLEM?! YOU’RE NOT MY DAD! SO STOP ACTING LIKE IT! YOU KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT ME! SO STOP TRYING TO CONTROL MY LIFE WHEN YOU WERE NEVER A PART OF IT! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU FUCKING ARE?! BECAUSE I’M SURE AS HELL YOU AREN’T THE KEEPER OF MY LIFE!

L: OH REALLY BECAUSE LAST TIME I CHECKED I’M YOUR LEGAL GUARDIAN!

K: ACTUALLY YOU AREN’T BECAUSE I’M 18!

L: WELL I’D LIKE TO SEE YOU TRY LIVING ON YOUR OWN!

K: FINE LET’S SEE HOW YOU DO WHEN SIMON FINDS OUT YOU’RE KICKING ME OUT!

L: WHY THE FUCK WOULD SIMON CARE?! YOU DON’T MEAN SHIT TO HIM OR ANYONE!

K: I DON’T KNOW HOW YOUR SO CALLED FRIENDS CAN EVEN LIVE WITH YOU! I WOULD HAVE KILLED MYSELF BY NOW!

L: WELL AT LEAST THEY LISTEN TO ME!

K: I’M SO GLAD I NEVER GREW UP WITH YOU! I WOULD HAVE RATHER LIVED IN AN ADOPTION HOME THEN WITH YOU!

    I stormed out of the living room and up the stairs. When I got to the top all the boys were there and I walked right through them. I walked into my room, slammed the door and locked it crying my heart out or whatever was left of it at least. I grabbed one of the duffle bags I brought and put some close in there. I put all my shorts, crop tops, t-shirts, cardigans, socks, underwear, bras, converse, makeup(which isn’t a lot it’s only one bag), snapback, beanies, jeans, sunglasses, and my party dresses. I folded everything pretty small so it would fit, but I didn’t forget to grab some of my favorites of Lia’s stuff. I ended up putting everything into two different bags, but it was better because it was easier to put my converse into the bags. My room is the only room on the left side of the house and there was a fence latter thing next to the window. The rest of the rooms on this side of the house don’t have windows. Right underneath my room is the theatre room next to that is the pool and next to my room is the game room. I threw my bags down then grabbed my purse with my wallet and phone. Right as I was about to climb out of the window someone knocked on my door.

(K: Kaitlyn, N: Niall, Z: Zayn)

K: Who is it?

Z: It’s Zayn….

N: And Niall.

K: What do you want?

N: Look we heard you argument with Liam and we just want to talk to you.

K: Why so you can tell me that Liam didn’t mean anything that he said?

Z: Come on love you don’t really believe him do you?

K: Yeah ‘love’ I do.

N: Why?

K: Because he tried to get rid of the most important person to me. Liam ruined everything we had. I had been waiting ages for him to tell me he loved me back….and now I left him exactly how I promised I wouldn’t….

Z: I’m sure he didn’t mean it. Liam does stupid things to keep people from getting hurt even if it hurts them in the process he thinks it doesn’t matter because he’s helping when he could just be hurting the person more….

N: He’s done it to everyone in this house.

K: Even to you Niall?

N: Yeah….he told me something stupid, I believed him and it lead to losing the only person I ever loved….

K: What did he tell you?

N: He told me that you were cheating on me….

K: And you believed him….

N: I mean yeah….you were always busy or out with friends and I thought that they were just excuses to cheat on me.

K: Wow….great to know you had faith in me…

Z: Anyway the point is that Liam is just doing this to protect you.

K: Yeah maybe you guys are right….

    I don’t actually agree with them, but it’s the only way I’m going to get them to leave me alone so I can leave.

N: Are you going to open to door?

Z: Niall!

K: It’s ok Zayn. I think I’m just going to stay in here for a while.

Z: Oh ok.

N: Ok we’ll come back when dinner is ready.

K: Um….no….

Z: Actually I’m going to come get you for dinner….by myself this time….Niall….

N: Fine.

K: Ok.

    I heard footsteps then two doors close. Ok now I can go. I went to the window and climbed out. I was halfway down when I heard talking coming from the pool area. I pushed myself as close to the wall and behind a vine that was next to the fence. (L: Louis, Z: Zayn)

L: So how did it go? Did you tell her?

Z: No Niall thought it would be a good idea to come along with me….

L: Cheer up mate. I’m sure your time will come. Now into the pool!

Z: *laughs* ok louis.

    I heard a splash and quickly continued to climb down the wall. I got off the vine and grabbed my bags. Thank god this house is on the corner. I threw my bags over the wall and started to find a way over the wall but there were no bricks slightly sticking out so I backed up as far as possible which wasn’t very far but it’ll have to do. I ran towards the fence and jumped. My hands gripped the other side of the brick wall and I pulled myself over. When I sat at the top I think Zayn saw me.

Z: Hey! What are you doing?!

I was wearing a hoodie so I don’t think he knew it was me. I turned for a second and saw he was shirtless. Damn he’s ripped. Focus! He was running towards me and I jumped, landing on my feet.

Z: Who are you?! Hey! Come back here!

K: No thanks! Oh and thanks for the three hour stay!

    I ran as fast as I could with the two bags in my hands. I ran for a good 30 minutes until I came to a familiar park. I didn’t even realize I was running here. I walked over to a isolated bench that only me and a few other people know about. It’s beautiful, surrounded by trees and right in front of the river. There was someone else here, but they are quite a ways away. I was watching them, I know it sounds creepy, but I think they were watching me too. I was wearing sunglasses so the other guy couldn’t see me watching him. I saw him look around and walk off. I couldn’t help but wonder why. I’m not going to go after him though. The second the guy was out of sight my phone rang which scared me because it was quiet. I picked up my phone and looked at the caller ID, it’s Ryan.

(R: Ryan, K: Kaitlyn)

K: Hello?

R: Hey I was wondering if you wanted to met up later. Like at the park by the home? Or maybe the cafe?

K: Yeah that’d be great. How about the park by the home. How long until you’re here?

R: Oh, you’re already there? Well maybe like five minutes.

K: Ok. where do you want me to meet you?

R: The secret bench in the trees.

K: Umm, ok I’ll meet you there.

R: Cool. I’ll see you soon….I love you….

    I smiled. God how much am I going to miss him.

K: I love you too Ryan.

R: Bye!

K: See ya….

    When I hung up I could feel the tears running down my face. This wasn’t how it was suppose to be! I wasn’t suppose to be adopted! I was suppose to move out with Ryan! We were going to live together! Have a family together! Grow old together! But he isn’t released for another 2 months and I know you’re thinking ‘I can wait’ but I can’t. I left because Liam wanted to see me live on my own and that’s what I’m going to do! I looked at my phone and realized I had been sitting here for 5 minutes. I got up, hid my stuff behind a bush and sat back down. I opened my camera to check how puffy my eyes are.

K: Shit!

    My eyes are bloodshot red and really puffy. Ryan’s going to know something’s wrong. This isn’t going to be good. I got up and walked up to the edge of the river. I sat hugging my knees to my chest. How am I supposed to tell him I’m leaving? He’s going to be heartbroken. I just need to prove my point to Liam. I mean he could understand I can get pretty stubborn sometimes. I start crying again and when I look up I see that guy from earlier is back. Although now he’s able to completely see me and I’m a little tired.

(K: Kaitlyn, G: Stranger guy)

G: Hey. Are you ok?

K: Um….yeah I will be.

G: I can help you get home if you’d like.

K: No it’s fine. I’m waiting for someone.

G: You’ve been here for a while….

K: What? I’ve only been here for 10 minutes.

G: No miss it’s almost 10.

K: What….how?

G: I don’t know I came back and you’re still here.

K: I should get going. Thank you.

G: Do you need a ride somewhere?

K: No it’s fine. I’m just going to call an uber.

G: It’s no problem for me, honestly. I’ve got nothing better to do anyway.

K: Umm….ok….I have to get my stuff first.

G: Stuff? Did you run away?

K: Yeah, something like that.

G: Maybe I should take you home. I bet your mom and dad are worried about you.

K: My parents don’t even know I’m alive. I was adopted at birth.

G: Oh….

K: Yeah….

    I went to the bush I hid my stuff behind and grabbed my stuff. ‘Did Ryan even show up? How did I not notice it had gotten dark earlier? Did I fall asleep while I was thinking?’

G: Is that all?

K: Yeah.

G: Ok.

    We walked to his car and as we were getting closer I realized I don’t even know this guy’s name. Wow good job Kaitlyn, get in a car with a complete stranger, that’s not dangerous at all. He unlocked the car and opened the boot for me to put my bags in it.

K: So I have some questions I want to ask you.

G: Well you can ask me while we are in the car driving because you seem to be cold.

    I didn’t notice I was shaking. It’s actually really cold now that he mentioned it. I forgot to put something one under my hoodie when I was getting ready.

K: Oh yeah, ok.

G: Come on. Don’t want you get sick.

    I got in the car and it was a little warm, showing that he had just recently got here. The sudden change in temperature maybe me start shaking even more.

G: Are you ok? You’re shaking even more. You’re not going to die on me are you?

I knew he was just trying to make me feel better, but it wasn’t really working.

K: I’ll be fine. Just cold.

G: Ok. So where am I taking you?

K: The nearest airport.

G: Where are you going?

K: I’m staying with my sister, far, far away.

G: Don’t you think you should go home?

K: No.

    Our phones went off with a missing child alert when I checked it out I saw my name on the screen. Damn it, why can’t these people leave me alone. I opened the alert thankful that my picture wasn’t reported.

G: Looks like someone else went missing tonight as well. You wouldn’t happen to be the girl everyone is looking for?

K: No, that’s not me. No one’s going to notice I’m gone and if they do I forced you to take me to the airport.

G: As long as you’re not getting me into trouble.

K: You should be fine.

    He started the car and began driving away when I saw someone running towards the bench. I looked at the guy and hoped he would nice enough to slow down so I could see if it was Ryan.

K: Can you slow down I think I know who that is.

G: Ok. I can wait if you want to talk to that person.

K: Yeah that would be great. Thanks.

G: No problem I’ve nothing better to do.

     I got out of the car and ran over to the person. As I got closer I could see they were angry and they were talking to someone.

?: You don’t deserve her! She would still be with me if it wasn’t for one stupid mistake I didn’t even make!

?: That’s not my fault.

    The only person I could see was wearing jeans and a black shirt. His hair was blonde, and I know who that blonde hair belongs. So he was the one yelling. I looked back at the car and he was looking at me with a confused look written clearly across his face. Yeah I don’t know what’s happening either guy.

?: Look I don’t know what you want but I’m already late meeting someone so if you could just….

?: She ran away idiot!

?: Who?

?: Kaitlyn!

?: What….but i just talked to her….she told me to meet her here….

K: Yeah and I waited for you.

    Niall turned around and looked me up and down. I saw Ryan look around the tree that was in his way ran and hugged me.

R: I’m so sorry baby. I swear I thought the meeting was only going to last 5 minutes.

K: What happened?

R: I’m being let out early.

    He said with a smile on his face. I smiled too because moving out and on his own is something he’s wanted for a really long time.

K: That’s great Ry. When do you move?

R: Next month. I was thinking we move to australia with Luke and everyone else. What do you think?

K: Perfect.

R: Yeah I was thinking it was time to get away from this place and somewhere we can both enjoy ourselves.

K: I would like that.

R: Good because you don’t really have a choice.

K: Really? I’m pretty sure i have my own free will.

R: Not with this. You’ve helped me so much the least you can do is live the rest of your tiny little life with me.

K: Haha very funny. I was going to go even if you didn’t want me to.

R: Great, I don’t know what I’d do without you.

K: Me either.

R: Baby?

K: Yeah?

R: I’m sorry….

K: For what?

R: Earlier….I didn’t do anything to prevent everything from happening and I’m sorry.

K: It wasn’t your fault. You fall under pressure and I know that. That’s why I didn’t give up.

R: I love you….

K: I love you too….

    I saw a slight movement over Ryan’s shoulder. Niall stiffened probably because he’s seen that I’ve moved on, but it’s not my problem anymore I found someone who actually cares about me.

R: I’ve got to go only had about 10 mins.

K: Why?

R: Holley….she doesn’t let anyone out after 10 anymore….not after what happened last time.

K: To be fair it wasn’t even my fault. I wasn’t trying to piss off those guys….I just happen to piss them off slightly….

R: Slightly? I think that’s a bit light, don’t you think?

K: Whatever. Same thing.

R: No actually they are very different.

K: I hate you.

R: Shut up. You love me.

K: True but I hate you right now.

R: Sure keep telling yourself that.

K: Fine. I will.

R: Ok well I’ve got to go. I’ll call you or text you at 11.

K: Ok.

    He kissed me then ran off in the direction I used to love walking, towards the river. If you follow the river it leads right to the backyard of the home which can look like you were just outside sitting on the bank.

N: So you were talking about him?

K: I’m not going to do this right now.

    I started walking back to the car which is still here, but they guy fell asleep so I’m going to have to wake him up.

N: When are we going to talk? Because you seem to be avoiding me at all costs.

K; Yeah? Well if you knew how to keep your hands to yourself this wouldn’t be a problem now would it?

N: What are you on about?

K: Don’t play dumb I know what you did.

    I kept walking because if I stopped to look at Niall I wouldn’t be getting out of this one. As soon as I reached the car the doors unlocked and the guy smiled at me with pleading eyes. God just what I need pity from a stranger.

N: And now you’re getting in a car with another guy? How many boyfriends do you have? Because right now I’m counting three!

    I closed my eyes and took a deep breath if Niall keeps going it’s not going to end pretty, for him at least. I know how to defend myself and it comes in handy a lot.

K: One. I have one boyfriend. That’s definitely not you!

N: Fine. I don’t need you anyway.

K: Great then this conversation is over.

    Getting in the car I looked at the guy and nodded saying to the airport.

G: On it.

    Driving away I looked out the window and watched Niall get smaller and smaller as we went. When he was out of view I looked at the person driving the car. ‘Maybe I should get to know this person so they aren’t a complete stranger’.

(K: Kaitlyn, N: Nick)

N: My name’s Nick.

K: Was I….?

N: Thinking out loud? Yeah. I’m not going to hurt you….I promise.

K: Yeah and I’m suppose to trust you?

N: Well I’m helping you run away so….yeah pretty much.

K: Ok. What’s your full name?

N: Nicholas John Robinson….

K: No way! You’re Nick Robinson?! I got in a car with a stranger who happens to be the Nick Robinson! What are the odds.

N: Yeah well you’re still a stranger.

K: My name is Kaitlyn Diana Payne.

N: So you’re the missing Payne?

K: The missing Payne?

N: Oh yeah the Payne’s have been searching for their third daughter.

K: Oh….I didn’t know that they were looking for me….

N: Yeah have been for about two years.

K: No wonder.

N: Anyway any other questions?

K: How old are you?

N: 19, but you already knew that didn’t you?

    I smiled there are things I know he doesn’t know I know and it would be weird if he found out.

N: Can I ask you a question?

K: You just did.

N: That wasn’t my question.

K: Then what is your question?

N: Why are you running away?

K: To prove a point.

N: What point? If you don’t mind me asking?

K: Um….well I had an argument with my brother and he said he wanted to see me try living on my own so that’s what I’m going to do.

N: Oh….

K: Yeah….Anyway what were you doing by the river?

N: Relaxing or trying to at least.

K: Not much privacy I prozoom?

N: Not really.

K: Yeah. It’s stressful.

N: If you’re not use to it.

K: True.

N: Now how did you manage to stay out of the light for so long? I mean no one could find you and I’m almost 100% sure you weren’t trying to hid.

K: Adoption home.

N: Really?

K: Yeah. No one thinks to look in those. Especially if you were adopted at birth.

N: How’d you end up there?

K: My adopted mum and I were in a car crash….she died….I didn’t….got abused….sent away….ended up here….

N: Oh….sorry I didn’t….

K: It’s fine. The last thing I need is your pitty.

N: Fair enough.

    We arrived at the airport. I wasn’t paying attention to the time, but apparently the nearest airport was pretty far.

K: Thanks for the ride Nick.

N: No problem maybe you can have my number if you decide to come back. Maybe you can stay with me.

K: Sure. That would be lovely.

N: Cool.

I gave him my number and he gave me his. I smiled, got my stuff from the boot and left.
