The Only Thing That Keeps Me Going

I don't know how I got into this situation, or how I will get out of it. I was just hanging out with the future One Direction. They all have lovely voices and they should really do something with it. They are all my best friends, however I have a secret crush on Niall. I was watching them rehearse when, it happened. Now nothing can ever be the same again....


6. The New Arrivals

I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock, everyone else's went off too. It was 8 o'clock in the morning. Not bad but I probably should have gone to bed earlier than mid-night.

"What do we do?" Harry asked Louis.

"Nothing," He answered. "But you need to be awake." I've never known Louis to sound so serious.

After that, I got out of bed and immediately felt thirsty. I grabbed the cup with my toothbrush in and poured water from the tap on the sink in it. It was not safe to drink, far from clean water. I poured the brown water back down the sink, I hope they give us clean water at the lunch hall. Then, I heard my stomach grumble. Last night, we had a bowl of gruel, I felt like Oliver Twist. Niall would never last a minute here. Not knowing what I should do, I pulled out Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone; The Dursley's always killed me with laughter.

20 minutes later, (just when I got to the point: "MOTORBIKES DON'T FLY!" "I know they don't," said Harry. "It was only a dream.") a man started unlocking our cell doors. When he unlocked mine, I followed Harry, who was following Louis, who was following Zayn, who was following another man who was leading us to the lunch hall. We sat down at one of the two tables and waited for our breakfast.

"So where's Niall and Liam?" Zayn asked.

"Dunno." Said Harry.

"They should be coming here, shouldn't they? Because didn't that man say that we would all end up together."

"Oh yeah," Harry said remembering. "He did. So, they can't be far behind." We all just nodded. Silence broke out across the table as, you guessed it, we were given more gruel. Hooray! Within 5 minutes, everyone had scoffed it down.

"What do we do about water?" I wondered aloud.

"The sink in your cell." Zayn answered.

"We're supposed to drink that?" He just nodded.

"Okay," Louis started. "So, whoever knows anyone called Oliver and their surname begins at least with a T, then they have to go and ask for more." Yup, it's just like Oliver Twist.

"Oh, for gods sake Louis!" Harry said annoyed, though I knew he found that funny.

Unfortunately for me, I did know someone called Ollie Trigg. But, I thought it best not to say anything. Since no-one piped up, Louis continued,

"Okay then, looks like it's left to the good old-fashioned short-straws to decide."

"With what straws?" Harry asked.

"So," Louis went on, quickly changing the subject. "Who else has started Miranda Hart's autobiography: Is It Just Me?" Everyone started laughing.

"Of course you would Louis." I said in fits.

"Yes, it is just you." Harry said.

"What? I think she's a charming woman myself."

"Don't make me laugh any harder or I'll sound like a demented chicken." Now everyone was laughing at me.

"Make her laugh harder!"

"Thanks Zayn."

When we were all escorted in single-file back to our cells. I started to read Harry Potter again. Soon, I couldn't take the thirst any longer. I filled the cup with the brown water from think sink. Okay, I can do this, I'll probably get a disease, but, I can do this. I took a sip.......

"BBLLLARRGHHHH!" It tasted just like warm, sandy mud.

"What is it?" Harry asked, concerned.

"Don't worry, I just tasted the water."

"Oh, right."

"Yup." I put the cup down and resumed reading.

It wasn't until 2 hours had past did anything happen.

"Sounds like it's lunch time." Zayn said because we could all hear footsteps. "Liam?"

I walked up to the bars, and sure enough, Liam was put in the cell next to me, Cell 5. However, he looked like Harry did when I found him at the airport and he was being dragged into the cell. The men walked off.

"Liam!" Harry wondered.

"He looked like you did at the airport Harry."

"How's he going to get changed?!" Louis asked with concern in his voice.

"Why is that so important?" I wondered.

"Well," Zayn started, but he was cut off as Niall was being dragged passed us into Cell 6.

"Why's it so important!"

"Because, me and Louis came in the same way as them and,"

"Yes!" Louis carried on for him, shouting.

"THEY BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF US!" There was a long silence.

"Well, what can we do?" Harry asked.

"There's nothing we can do." Zayn said with tears stinging his eyes.

I felt hopeless.
