"What-Why Louis what's happening?" I gasped. Before I knew it Louis swung me behind him so my face was buried in his shirt. His body was tensed and I saw his hands clench into a tight fist. I didn't want to know what was happening but I brought myself to lift my head and look over Louis' shoulder. My heart stopped beating when I saw a woman, which I guessed was the girl who came with the men. She had bleach blond hair, dark red eyes and pale white skin. Her face was scrunched up into something that sent chills down my spine, around her eyes turned grey and what looked like black veins rose to the skin.
"Stay away from her" Louis growled as he rose is arms as an attempt to shield me.
"You are a lot younger than me boy" she coldly whispered. "I could take you down with my little finger"
"I wouldn't count on that" he growled back. Before I knew it the girl lunched herself at me, just before she hit the ground Louis pushed his hand out and the woman went flying backwards. To my surprise Niall was on the other side of the room, the girl fell into his arms. I heard a crack of a neck and then she fell to the floor. I gasped, catching my breath and then breathing deeply trying to get my breathing back on track. "Bailey, Bail are you okay?" he asked. I nodded and then he embraced me in a hug, tears brimmed to the corners of my eyes. "It's okay, everyone is okay" he reassured me running his hands through my hair. Suddenly I heard a groan from behind the couch, me and Louis quickly snapped our heads up. Louis released me from his grasp and walked over to check what it was. "Shit" he cursed.
"Lou what is it?' "I asked.
"Niall, he's been bit" he stated. I ran over to see Niall laying on the ground with his hand over his wrist as he groaned out in pain.
"What's happening to him?" I gasped.
"He's having a reaction to the bite" he asked running his hands through it messy hair.
"How- do we help him? Louis please tell me that we can do something" I begged kneeling by Niall's side.
"There is one thing that you can do" he sighed.
"What is it?" I asked quickly.
"He needs to drink your blood" he said though clenched teeth.
"Okay" I responded as I got my wrist out ready for Niall to bite it.
"Bailey wait, he might not be able to stop. I won't be able to help you because I might be the one that hurts you instead, your blood is just about bearable for me under your skin I can't imagine what it will be like" he began.
I cut him off "Leave then and make sure no one comes back in, I'm not letting him die Louis" I cried. Tears beginning to roll down my cheeks.
"Okay I will leave, Bailey please be careful" he sighed.
I looked down to see Niall still rolling around still on the floor, he couldn't get any words out. I took a deep breath and lifted my wrist up to his mouth. He lifted his head up and brought his teeth to my wrist, I then felt him skink his teeth into my wrist. I bit my lip to stop me from yelping out in pain. I then felt him sit up as he brought his hands up to my arm to bring it closer to him. I opened my eyes to see that my vision was clouded with tears, I blinked a few times so my vision was back to normal when my eyes met Niall's. They were a dark black colour, around his eyes were grey with the same black vein look as the woman had earlier. Suddenly I felt his teeth come out of me and my arm dropped down to my side. I quickly pulled it to my side and looked at the mark that had been left. It looked exactly like it would be in the movies. He slowly stood up examining the damage he had done to me.
"I- I'm so sorry" he stammered. "I didn't think I would have been able to stop, I could have killed you" he whispered pacing up and down.
"But you didn't Niall you stopped, you nearly died protecting me" I reassured him.
"Come on, we will get you cleaned up" he told me. He held out his hand and pulled me up. We walked towards the kitchen and he turned the tap on, he grabbed a clean cloth and ran it under the water then dabbed it to get rid of the blood. Then he lifted my arm up wrapped it up in a bandage. "Thank you for that Bailey, it would have been so much easier to let me die"
"How did you stop?" I blurted out. "Louis said it was just about bearable my blood being under my skin, how did you find the will power to stop?" I asked.
"The way you looked at me, it was like you were scared of me, l promised you that no one would hurt you and that includes myself" he sighed.
"Thank you for everything you did today Niall, I could be dead now if it wasn't for you" I stated.
"Just a few more months and you won't have to worry about dying or vampires coming after you" he smiled weakly.
"For some reason that doesn't give me as much comfort as it should" I sighed.
"I won't let anybody hurt you, you know that right?" he asked. I nodded.
"Thank you" I whispered.
"I should be the one thanking you" he quietly replied as he leaned in and placed his lips on mine.
