* MADISON *
“Madison get up!” yells Sarah, “Its auction day today!”
“Okay!” I groggily yell back.
15 minutes later, I am applying the finishing touches to my make-up. I am wearing a single strap black knee length dress with black 3-inch heels and red lipstick. My hair is in loose waves.
Sarah barges into my room. She lets out a low whistle, “Damn girl! Look at you!”
I laugh, “Yeah right. Look at you!”
She is in a silver strapless dress with silver 5-inch heels and browny-red lipstick.
She laughs, “Come on girl. Let’s go.”
“$250! Going once. Going twice. Sold to Mr. Jake Wilson for $250!”
The audience applauds loudly.
“Next up is Sarah Brown!”
Sarah squeals. I give her a big hug.
“Good luck Sarah! I’m gonna miss you so much.”
"I'll miss you too, Madison. Good Luck."
Sarah walks through the curtain. I hear a lot of wolf whistles.
"Ok." Say a guy, to the right of Sarah, with a microphone, "Let's start off at $200."
The audience goes quiet. I hear Sarah cough loudly.
“Ok. $700 going once. Going twice. Sold to Mr. Jackson Smith for $700!”
I hear Sarah walks off stage to find her new master. I gulp. I'm up next.
"Next, we have Madison Carter!"
I slowly walk on stage and stand were Sarah stood moments ago.
“Ok let’s start off with $500.” My eyes go wide, but I quickly compose myself. A whole bunch of guys jump up.
I gasp along with the audience. That is a very high bid.
“$3000!” I see a man sit down.
“Ok. Going once. Going twice. Sold to Harry Styles for $3000!”
Jeez. This guy must be rich.
Harry comes down to meet me. “Umm hey.” He scratches the back of his neck. “Let’s go.”
I nod in reply. I follow Harry as he weaves in and out of people towards the exit. Harry gives the $3000 to the bouncer at the door and we leave.
Harry puts this hand up for a taxi, one pulls up seconds later.
“2501 California Drive please.”
During the ride, I sneak glances at Harry. He is very toned. I can see tattoos peaking out from the collar and sleeves of his shirt. He runs a hand threw his long, brown hair and sighs. He must feel me looking at him, so he looks over and I look out the window for the rest of the drive.
The taxi drops us off in front of a mansion. I gap at it while Harry pays the taxi driver. From the front alone, I can see at least 3 storeys, 20 windows, and a huge chandelier. Harry walks into the house and I follow. I quickly take off my shoes, but Harry leaves his on.
We walk threw a long hallway with lots of different doors before we get to a living room. There is four other boys sitting on a leather couch, watching and 80 inch TV. Harry clears his throat. The boys mute the telly then look at us. I look down at the floor.
"Ok everyone, this is Madison. Madison this is Niall," He points to a blonde hair boy, who smiles. "Liam." He points to one of the brown haired boys. He waves. "Louis." He points to a boy with an amazing jawline. He smiles. "And Zayn." The black haired boy nodes his head.
I mumble, “Hey.”
“Madison. You can look at us you know? We won't hurt you.” Zayn chuckles. "Niall might though. He likes to bite."
I hear a thud and Zayn groaning. I slowly look up.
“That’s better.” Louis smiles, “So sweetheart, tell us about yourself.”
"Umm. My name is Madison Carter. I have brown eyes, brown mid-length hair. I'm 18, my birthday is the 16th of the 9th 1998."
“Damn!” yells Niall, “Your birthday is tomorrow!”
I give him a small smile, “Anyway, I was 15 when I was taken to the slave house and I miss my…” I trail off.
“You miss who?” Zayn questions.
"Um don't worry about it." I sigh.
“Madison. You can tell us.” Zayn says in a not-so-nice voice. He jumps off the couch and walks towards me. I stumble backwards, slightly afraid.
“Zayn. Leave her alone. She will tell us when she is ready.” Harry says. Zayn ignores Harry and takes another couple of steps towards me. My back hits the wall. Suddenly, Liam comes up behind Zayn and drags him backwards.
“Zayn stop. You are scaring her. ” Growls Liam. I stare at the two boys on the floor.
Suddenly, Zayn punches Liam in the face. I let out a small scream. Liam’s grip on Zayn loosens.
“Alright enough!” Yells Harry, “Idiots you’re scaring Madison. Liam, Louis take Zayn into the kitchen and don’t let him come out.”
Liam, Louis, and a struggling Zayn disappear behind a wooden door.
"Madison. Are you okay?" Ask Harry. Tears silently fall down my face. Harry takes a step towards me but Niall stands in front of me.
“I’ll look after her. Go talk to Zayn.” Niall says. Harry sighs but also disappears behind the wooden door.
“Hey, Maddy? Can I call you that?”
I nod my head.
"Let's go to your room for a chat." We silently walk up two flights of stairs. "Ok." Says Nail, "On the floor below us are Zayn, Louis and Liam's rooms and on this floor is Harry and my rooms," he says whilst point to the rooms, he walks two doors down the hall, "And this is your room. I peek into the room it has 3 three black walls and 1 white one, it the white wall is in the back of the room, it has a queen bed pushed against it. There is a white desk it the room as well, it has a laptop and a set of headphones and a phone neatly sitting on top of it. There is also a walk-in wardrobe full of clothes and a bookcase full of books in the room.
“Is this all for me?” I squeak. Niall nods. “No no no. This is too much.”
"Maddy. It's ok. We have more money than we could possibly need. It feels good to spend it on someone." I shake my head. "Madison. We aren't gonna return the stuff so just deal with it." Niall growls then pinches the bridge of his nose. I nod my head, afraid. Niall sighs, "Good night Madison. See you in the morning."
"Night," I reply quietly. Niall leaves the room and closes the door behind him. I change into a top that says HARVARD on it with a pair of grey sweats then I get into bed. That's when the tears come. I lie there and cry for 20 minutes until I hear a knock on the door.
“Can I come in?” Asks Niall.
I quickly wipe my eyes, then reply, “Sure.”
Niall walks in then I burst into another set of tears. Niall rushes over and gives me a hug.
“Shhhhhh. Shhhhhh. I’m sorry for yelling at you Maddy.” He says while stroking my hair, “I’m sorry Maddy. Please calm down.” I slowly stop crying. Niall smiles, “That’s better.” I give a shaky laugh.
“Niall?” I ask.
"You scared me when you got angry. Angry doesn't look nice on you."
He smiles at me. "Yeah maybe I should stop hey?"
"Okay Mads. Well good night." He kisses the top of my head and walks out of the room before I can reply.
