Harry's pov

I sat on the couch for about ten minutes, lazily shoving pizza into my mouth. I was currently watching an episode of the walking dead.

I was never really into zombies, I just wanted to see what all of the big fuss was about over this show. Zayn was telling me about it the other day.

While I was watching the characters run and mindlessly shoot at the zombies, I oddly remembered my stepsister.

I think she's had enough punishment for tonight. I should let her free so she could get ready for bed and school tomorrow.

I looked over at the wooden grandfather clock and the time read 2:30. Wow, it's late.

Anna's probably already asleep. I thought to myself as I forced myself to get off the couch. I stood up and stretched out causing myself to let out a groan.

I grabbed the remote from the coffee table and turned off the T.V. I tossed the remote on the sofa and made my way upstairs.

Once I reached the top I made my way down the hall to Anna's room. I peered my head inside. "Anna are you awake?" I whispered.

I fully opened the door and what my eyes saw made me want to break something.

She's gone.

"Fuck!!" I cursed under my breath.

"How the hell did she escape without me knowing?" 

I looked over at the open window.  I strode across the room to the window. I looked down on the ground to see if I saw her or at least a trace of her.

Not again.

"What the hell am I going to do now?"

As if it was on cue my phone rung, showing Carine's name across the phone.


I swiped my thumb across the screen to answer. "Hello?"

"Hey Harry, it's Carine. I just called to check up on you guys."

I forced a laugh. "Oh, everything all good mama. No worries" I assured her.

"Well you know it's past you guy's bedtime? Well, it's past Anna's bedtime. You can sleep whenever you want. I'd be silly to give you a bedtime." Carine laughed.

I forced a laugh as well. "Yeah, that would be weird."

"Well, your dad and I will be home tomorrow at eleven. I'm so ready to get back home to my children. I know I sound ridiculous but I'm still a mother. Well, you don't  have to see me as a total mom to you but, you can if you want."

"Oh umm it's okay for you to call me your son," I assured.

"Good..... Oh and Harry did you scold Anna as I told you for running away from school and missing curfew?" She asked. The question made my hands sweat.

"Uhh................ yeah, I did."

"What did you say?"

Now my body was shaking. "I took away her phone."

What? I wasn't lying.

"Good. I'm glad you're acting like a responsible older brother to her. She needs a figure like you in her life to watch over her. Especially since her Father left. Well, David is her stepfather but, I feel like you to can relate more ya know?" 

"Yeah, I get what you're saying."

"Well, goodbye Harry I gotta go. I'll see you tomorrow when your father and I get back."


"Bye Harry."


I hung up and shut the window. I paced across the room. Where the hell could she have gone?

I stopped on my tracks. An idea popped into my head.

Nina's house.


Anna's Pov

Nina and I were currently sleeping in her bed. Her squishing me up against the wall because of her being a wild sleeper and taking up all the space. At least I'm not at the edge where she can kick me off like last time.

I heard someone knocking downstairs. "Nina," I whispered. 

She groaned and stirred in response. I shook her lightly. "Nina someone's knocking."

She groaned. "Why don't you get it then?"

"Because it might be Harry. Now go get the door." I ordered.

She sighed and rolled out of bed. "Fine. You and your brother are working my nerves." She said before disappearing into the hallway.

The knocking continued on until I heard Nina yell "I'm coming, my goodness." 

I crept to the balcony to hear who was at the door. I heard an all too familiar voice that I did not want to hear. 

"Where the fuck is she?"



"Made in the a.m" came out.
Jesus, help me through the storm cause......... I can't.

My favorite songs are..............

"Never enough" (the chorus is everything)

"Walking in the wind"


"End of the day" (loved the beat change)

"Temporary fix" (kinda reminds me of no control.) ;) 

What are your favorite songs??
