16. Chapter 15.

*Anna's P.O.V.*

I woke up to the sound of light rain. I slowly shifted in my sleep, smiling. I loved rain.

Wait a minute, RAIN?!

I quickly shot out of bed and opened my window, only to be welcomed by a strong gusty wind blowing the hair out of my face, and my curtains to the other end of my room.

As I stared at the freakishly yellow and grey sky, suddenly, a flash lit up the whole sky. Woah, lightning. Immediately, it was followed by a loud thunder, multiple echos following it, causing reverberation.

The rain was no longer just a pitter and patter, it was wild now. It was as if the sky was crying hysterically because it lost something. Soon enough the roads were flooded, and it was so windy that it looked like the trees were going to be uprooted.

As I stretched my hand out of my window to feel the big drops of rain, I was quickly reminded of my scars. They looked so different now. They no longer reminded me of why I did that to myself.

My thoughts were interrupted by a knock on my door.

"Come in!" I called, pulling my hand back inside and pulling my top's sleeve over it.

"Hey." Georgie entered my room, giving me a warm smile. "Hi." I said, smiling back. "The weather's nice, right?" she questioned, looking out the window, still smiling. "Yes, this is my favorite time of the year." I replied. "It's gonna get worse though." she said, frowning a little. "I know." I added, feeling a little bad for people who'd get stuck during their journeys because of the storm. "You think Liam and Niall will be able to make it?" she questioned, looking a bit worried. "Liam texted me a while ago, he said that he just left because it wasn't that bad there, and he didn't want to wait till it got worse. Niall's with him, apparently, he flew to Liam's last night, and it was just windy then." I replied, hoping they don't get held up because of the storm. "Alright, keep texting Liam to check on them and see if they're alright. Come on downstairs, breakfast's ready." she said as she exited my room.

I quickly brushed my teeth, washed my face and decided to check on Liam.

To *Leeyum Paayyyneeee* : Hey, you guys alright? X

From *Leeyum Paayyyneeee* : Niall's a good driver, were fin! The wether is gettting crazyier as we speaka. Lol, how bad is ther?

To *Leeyum Paayyyneeee* : That's good to hear, tell him not to drive too fast, there's no hurry, you guys will be here by tonight, tops! It's really crazy here.. Heavy rain, strong winds, lightning, and thunderstorm. The sky's an odd color too.

From *Leeyum Paayyyneeee* : Haha, oky, Ill text you in a hour, ttyl babe<3

To *Leeyum Paayyyneeee* : Okay, drive safe!<3

I put my phone away and made my way downstairs, man it was so dark, and cool. Days like these got me so darn excited, so I decided to skip my way to the the dining table.

"Morning!" I chirped. "Morning." Winnie and Georgie replied in unison. Winnie looked so pale, as if she'd seen a ghost. "What's wrong with her?" I asked Georgie, slowly. "Thunderstorms scare her, remember?" Georgie said. "Yes, I do. But my walls are soundproof, you can hear only the loud ones." I said, furrowing my eyebrows. "Those are the scariest ones!" Winnie shrieked. "Aww, there there. Once Niall gets here, he'll kiss you better, and hold you close to him all night long. But till then, we're here for you." I teased, pulling her in for a hug. "That sounds nice." she mumbled. "Just text him to call you when they stop for lunch, okay?" I said, rubbing her back. "Speaking of lunch, Harry's mum told us to come over at about 2." Georgie said. "Alright then, let's eat breakfast, shall we?" I asked, letting go of Winnie. She simply nodded wearily.

*Liam's P.O.V.*

I watched as the sky cried numerous drops of rain. I couldn't wait to go see Anna and cuddle up to her with a blanket and a hot cup of cocoa. Wait, what am I saying?! She's not mine.

Heck, she doesn't even know I like her! Or does she? What if she knows I like her, and maybe, just maybe, likes me back?

I pushed those thoughts aside to avoid expecting too much and stared at the clouds. Clouds amused me. They were a little like humans. The water vapour that they collected were like our emotions. When they became too much for us to handle, we'd cry, just like when the clouds would have too much water vapour, it'd rain.

I saw a bright flash light up the whole sky followed by a loud earth-shaking thunder.

"That's some thunder." Niall said, without looking away from the road. "Yeah, let's stop at the closest gas station, it's gonna get worse out here, and it's close to lunch time anyway." I said, watching the sky as it started raining more heavily and it sounded like multiple hailstones were falling onto our car.

~45 minutes later~

I don't know even know how it was possible for it rain more heavily, but it did. Thankfully, we found a gas station and they had a small diner.

After Niall parked the car, we pulled on our raincoats and quickly made a run for the diner. Wow, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a hailstorm right now!

Niall and I checked our phones as we sat down and waited for a waiter to take our order.

From *Annabear<3* : The weather's getting worse! Where are you guys? Are you alright?

To *Annabear<3* : I knw! Were at a gas statin, were fin, dont woryy. X

From *Annabear<3* : How far are you guys?x

To *Annabear<3* : Were abot 2 hours away, but were waitng for teh rain to sow down, so it mihgt take longerr :(

From *Annabear<3* : Oh, okay! Text me when you're back on the road!x

I looked at the menu and flipped through the pages, deciding what to eat.

"Good afternoon, folks. What would you like to order?" the waitress asked. "I'd like two cheeseburgers with extra cheese, one of them with extra fries, and the drinks will be two root beer floats." Niall said. The waitress quickly scribbled everything down and turned to me. "What about you, sir?" she questioned. "I'd like a cheeseburger, fries on the side, mozzarella cheese sticks and a diet coke." I replied. "Coming right up!" the waitress said as she scribbled down my order and walked away.

~An hour and 30 minutes later~

The rain seems to have died down a little, but we decided to stay a bit longer since it was still raining pretty heavily.

As Niall got off the phone with Winnie, he looked at me with expectant eyes. "What is it?" I questioned. "Can we have some ice cream before leaving?" Niall begged with puppy dog eyes. How could I say no? "Alright, but I'm having frozen yoghurt." I said, giving in.

"Excuse me!" Niall called. "Yes, sir, what would you like?" the waitress asked, shuffling over to our table. "I'd like a small chocolate sundae and a rocky road ice cream cone, and he'll have a cup of vanilla flavored frozen yoghurt." he told the waitress. "Okay, coming right up." the waitress scribbled down the order and walked to the ice cream counter.

*Georgie's P.O.V.*

After we all got dressed and put on our raincoats, we headed to Harry's place. Gosh, it was raining so heavily.

We shivered as I rang the doorbell while Anna was comforting Winnie.

"Hello, girls! Come in quickly, you must be freezing." Anne stepped aside so that we could get in. The house was really warm, and smelled like cookies. Harry was most definitely cooking.

"Here, let me get those coats off of you three." Anne said, taking our coats and hanging them on the hanger by the door.

"Harry's baking cookies, why don't you girls sit in the living room and help yourselves to some snacks on the coffee table?" she offered. We all nodded and walked into the living room to find Gemma run dwon the stairs and greet us. She hugged all of us before we sat on the couches.

As we started to eat the mini pretzels and talk to Gemma, Anna's started vibrating quite loudly.

*Anna's P.O.V.*

"Excuse me, guys." I said, quickly walking upstairs.

"Hello?" I said, picking up my phone.
"Hey, Annabear."
"Hey, LiLi."
"We're leaving the gas station now, we'll be there in about 2 hours."
"Oh, that's good. Just give me a call when you're close by, we're at Harry's for lunch."
"Alright, see you soon, love."

As I walked down the stairs I saw Harry walk out of the kitchen.

"Hey." he smiled, walking closer to me. "Hello." I mumbled as he pulled me in for a hug. "Lunch's gonna be ready in 10. Where are Liam and Niall?" he asked, pulling away. "They're about 2 hours away." I replied. "Alright, c'mon, let's go sit at the dining table." he said, leading the way.

~3 hours later~

We were all sat on the couch, as we listened to the incessant rain falling heavily. The thunderstorm had gotten worse, and the sky would light up due to lightning every 2 minutes. Winnie was scared to death. I reached over to her and rubbed her shoulder.

"I feel so bad for Liam and Niall, I hope they're okay. I think you girls should stay the night. It's really bad out there. You can borrow some of Gemma's clothes." Anne suggested. "Yeah, sure, you guys can have anything except for my favorite pj's." Gemma added. "Thank you." Winnie, Georgie and I said in unison.

Just then, I heard my phone buzz. It must be Liam!

From *Leeyum Paayyyneeee* : Just arond teh conrerr!

To *Leeyum Paayyyyneeee* : Yaaayy! :D

In a few minutes, we heard the doorbell.

"That must be them!" Harry said as he shot up and ran to the door. As soon as he opened the door, all the loose items in the house flew around and some dust from outside entered the house. Before the two drenched boys standing before him could say anything, lightning lit up the whole sky, followed by a loud thunder, like in those scary movies. "Hey." they said in unison, trembling. "Hey! Come in, quick." Harry said, stepping aside. They sat their bags on the floor and handed their coats to Harry.

As they walked into the living room, all of us stood up and hugged each of them.

"Sorry we were late, guys. We had to drive slowly at a point because the rain just wouldn't stop pouring!" Liam explained. "The weather's crazy out there!" Niall added. "Yep, sick weather." Harry said, sitting next to his mum.

"So, do you guys want some hot cocoa?" Anne asked, smiling. "Yes!" we cheered. "Alright, coming right up." she said, walking into the kitchen.

I watched Winnie as she snuggled up to Niall and it's like she wasn't afraid of anything in the world, as long as she had him by her side.

I wish I had someone like that. Someone who will always be there for me, no matter what, and love me for who I am.

Just then, I saw Liam look up at me, and smile.
