Alana walked into Harry and the boys' mansion Monday morning. She and Lindsey have been flying all night.
"Harry!" Alana jumped on Harry's bed. His eyes opened and he hugged Alana.
"I missed you!" He yelled. Alana giggled, "I missed bạn too!"
Harry got out of giường and pulled Alana up. She stood and Harry pulled her closer to him.
"You are so beautiful," Harry looked down at Alana's big brown eyes.
Alana smiled at him, "I tình yêu you," Harry smiled bigger his big dimples showing, "I tình yêu bạn more." Harry released Alana, "Oh, and I wanted to know if bạn want to go out to dinner, hoặc go see a movie? bạn know like a date."
"I'd tình yêu that!" Alana cooed.
Lindsey and Niall where cuddling on the couch, Alana and Harry where playing tag, and Liam, Louis, and Zayn where watching football.
Louis looked back at Lindsey but she didn't even look at him. She was looking at Niall and smiling as he talked. Louis's tim, trái tim dropped. Niall and her looked so happy together. Why can't he find that happiness too?
Louis walked out the door. He needed to get away and think.
An giờ had passed and it was starting to get dark so he decided to go through an alleyway to get home. He walked down the alley and saw a figure laying on the ground. He walked closer and realized it was a human. He ran over to it and saw a very familiar face. Ruby.
"Ohmygod!" Louis yelled flipping Ruby over so she was laying on her back. She had bruises and cuts everywhere. She tried opening her eyes but couldn't. "Ruby! Ruby! Who did this to you?" Louis asked trying to keep her awake. Blood was getting all over Louis as he pulled her onto his lap.
"I'll get bạn help, Ruby." Louis pulled out his phone and called the ambulance.
"Come on Ruby stay awake." Louis touched her hand and she was freezing cold. Louis pulled her close to his body. A một phút hoặc so passed and Louis could hear sirens. Cops and paramedics came and picked Louis and Ruby up.
"So, what happened?" Niall asked. Louis sat down in a blue waiting room chair, "I was walking down an alleyway and saw Ruby laying on the ground almost lifeless."
Niall covered his eyes, "This is all my fault."
"No it's not." Liam said.
"Yes it is,earlier me and Ruby got into this stupid fight...." Ruby ran inside the house as Niall followed.
"Ruby!" Niall yelled. Ruby stopped half way up the stairs, "Niall leave me alone!"
"Ruby, I'm tired of bạn diễn xuất like this!"
Ruby tired around and faced her angry brother, "If your tired of me that;s all bạn had to say."
"No. I'm not tired of you! bạn have just been diễn xuất really... weird lately. Why? Are bạn getting bull-"
"No." Ruby yelled, her tim, trái tim racing, "I need some air." She ran down the stairs.
"No." Niall grabbed her wrist and she winced, "Your not going anywhere."
"Yes I am!" Ruby striked back, "I'm not a baby anymore Niall. bạn can't keep telling what to do!" She yelled jerking her wrist away from him. She ran out the door slamming it behind her.
"Wow..."' Louis đã đưa ý kiến Ruby's blood still on his shirt. It got quiet as the doctor came out. He held a clip board in his hand, "Who is Niall?"
Niall stood up, "Me."
"Well, Niall can I speak to you?" Niall nodded and followed the doctor.
"So," The doctor sat on a chair and offered Niall to sit too. Niall sat. "You sister, has many bruises on her body. And many cuts."
Niall sighed, "Do bạn know where she got them?"
"Well, we have an idea.." The doctor looked at his board and back at Niall, "Has she been bullied at home? hoặc maybe at school?"
Niall shook her head, "No. Not at our home.. but, she has been diễn xuất really weird lately."
"What do bạn mean.. weird?"
"Well, she has been very, distant. She doesn't watch football with us like she use too, and she's always locked in her room. Plus, she hasn't been eating lately."
"Niall," The doctor started, "I think your sister is getting bullied at school."
Niall froze. Bullied? Why would anyone want to hurt Ruby? What did she ever do to them?
"Is she okay?" The doctor nodded, "She needs to be on giường rest for a few weeks. It would be best if bạn try and consider trang chủ schooling for her. Here is my card," The doctor pulled out a card, "If bạn need anything call. Visiting hours are around 10 am to 10 pm." The doctor nodded and walked away.
"Ni?" Lindsey asked walking over to him, "You okay?"
A tear streamed down Niall's face, "How could I be so stupid?" He stood up and Lindsey hugged him.
"No one saw it." She backed away, "Niall. Look at me." Niall looked at Lindsey. "Ruby didn't want to make it a big deal. She didn't understand how bad it really was." Niall sighed. Lindsey kissed him, "Come on." She held his hand as they walked back into the waiting room were everybody was.
"Niall!" They heard someone yelled inside the hospital room.
"Ruby!" Niall yelled running into the room.
"Niall." She hugged him crying, "I'm sorry. I'm sorry I didn't tell you!"
Niall rubbed her head, "It's okay. It's okay."
