Louis' POV

I walked in the house. "Well, Lottie's room is the third door to your left. Right across from Riley's." Leah yawns. It was maybe one o'clock and my mum sent me to talk to Lottie and see if she was alright. I thanked her and ran up the stairs and walked into her room. "Louis?" She groans. "Hey sis. Just checking on you." I sat on the edge of her bed. "That's sweet Lou." "Well, hey I love you." She giggles. "Louis can you leave now. I need my beauty sleep." I laugh. "Alright see you tomorrow." I kiss her forehead and walk out. I close her door as quiet as possible. I stare at Riley's door. I can't go in there uninvited. Just go in there Louis! No, it's an invasion of privacy. OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE JUST GO! Alright, alright. I turn the knob and walk into the room. It's pin drop silent and she's not in her bed. Her sheets are untouched and an envelope sat in the middle. I raise an eyebrow and open the letter.

"Dear family,

I've noticed the elephant in the room. I've become a hassle. A waste of space. I've caused so many problems and stressed so many people out. You guys don't deserve all the stress and problem I've caused. Have you ever heard the quote "If you love someone, set them free." I think it went something like that. Anyway, I'm setting you guys free. You deserve it. So, I decided to call the shots and departed. Don't try and get me back cause I'm at peace. I do not wish to come back. I do not need to come back. I love you Leah, a ton. You were the best older sister in the world. I couldn't have asked for a better big sis. I know you will probably deny this cause you are who you are, and you don't take compliments. You'll never see it but you're beautiful and any girl would kill to have your beauty. Jake, you, well you were something else. You were an amazing brother before you started drinking. Destiny, I'm sorry I couldn't be the best older sister I could be towards you. But I'm not prepared for this stuff. I'm sorry. You can have my iPod. Mum. I love you so much and I'm sorry if this upsets you but it's the best thing to do. Tell dad I love him. Even though I said I don't, I do. Leah, it mean a lot if you told Lottie that she's a great girl and that my wish is that she keeps the baby. Um, tell Louis I'm sorry I didn't kiss him. I've never been asked to do that since I was twelve and it wasn't cause I didn't like him, it's just that I find it hard to believe that someone would want to kiss me, I mean I'm not the prettiest person out there, I mean look at his girlfriend Eleanor, she's breath taking. Perfect, and I'm not. I'll never be. But yeah, I guess this is goodbye. I love you.

Love you always,

Riley xx

I began to panic. I looked under the bed. Where are you Riley?! "Riley?!" I shout. I don't care if I wake everyone up. I walked over to the closet. I hesitated to open it. Did she hang herself? I took a deep breath and swung the door open. Clothes, no sign of Riley. "Where the fuck are you Riley?" I mumble to myself. I sigh sitting on the bed. She's nowhere to be found. I look across the room and see a door, light shining out from under it. I stood up and open the door. In the room revealed Riley sitting in the bathtub a empty bottle of pills hanging loosely from her fingertips. "Riley, no." Hot tears streamed down my face as I pulled her out of the tub. I carried her heavy limp body out to her bed. There were cuts on knuckles and hands. A few cuts were across her wrists. I cried harder and it was becoming harder to breathe. "LEAH!" I let out a scream. "LOTTIE!" I was bawling and hardly any air was getting into my lungs. I was gasping and crying. I felt lightheaded as the two girl burst to into the room. "Call 999" I fell to the ground as everything went dark.
