Rachel's POV

" You okay Rachel?" Scarlet asked me. I nodded my head as I took Elizabeth from her. 

"Can we just go?" I asked her.

"Yeah sure. The others are waiting for us." Scarlet took my arm and led me towards the others. 

"Were are the others?" I asked as I only saw the girls. 

"They were all arrested." Sophia told me. 

"What I thought only Niall and Ben were arrested?" I asked confused. 

"Well you obviously thought wrong." Sophia snapped at me. 

"And once again thanks to your uncle they will be going back to jail." 

"Girls this is not the best place to argue. I think it would be best if we went somewhere a little more private and safe." Perrie reasoned with us. I sighed but climbed into the car, strapping Elizabeth into her car seat and sat in the back by myself. 

"Where are we going?" I asked Sophia who was driving the car. 

"To a safe house." She told us. 

"And then?" Rebecca asked her. 

"Then we.....wait."

~At the Safe House~

"Hey Rach?" I looked up and saw Perrie standing in the doorway. 

"How you doing?" She asked me. I shrugged my shoulders.

"Okay I guess." 

"He didn't......do anything did he?" Perrie asked me. 

"No." I whispered. 

"Well besides kidnapping me and being a terrible gang leader. No he didn't." I told her. 

"You seem really calm." Perrie told me. 

" It's not the first time something like this has happened." Perrie nodded her head. 

"If you want the girls made some food. If your hungry."

"Okay thanks." I answered her. Perrie nodded her head then walked away from the room. I leaned back and stared at the ceiling. I heard a knock on the door then Scarlet appeared in front of me. 

"Rachel you need to see this." Scarlet's voice was shaky. I grabbed Elizabeth from her crib and followed Scarlet downstairs. 

"3 cars have just caught on fire. The cars held 4 police officers. Along with major gang boss Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, and Louis Tomlinson. Police and Fire Fighters rushed to the scene and have successfully put out the fire. We go to Amanda Fields with Captain Clark head of the Fire Department." 

"Captain Clark, what can you tell us about this fire?" 

"We'll it seems that one of the cars may have had engine trouble and caught on fire causing the other cars to collide into one another and the fire spread to each car." 

"As we know that major crime boss Niall Horan was being transferred in one of these cars. Did these fire effect the people inside the cars?" 

"By the time we had arrived at the scene the cars had completely caught on fire. We believe that the fire had killed everyone on the inside." I heard a whimper came from behind me. 

"Sophia can you take Elizabeth for me?" I handed Elizabeth to Sophia and felt my knees give out. 

"Rachel. OH MY GOSH RACHEL." I heard someone cry out. My eyes were open but my head was pounding and I couldn't focus.

"We believe that the fire killed everyone on the inside." I kept hearing it over and over in my head. 

"Rachel." Before I knew it my vision had completely gone black.

~Two Days Later~

"Rachel?" I heard someone call for me. I turned my head to the side and saw Sophia leaning on the door frame. 

"How you doing?" She asked me. 

"You know I always thought that the day I would be free from him I would happy. I could live my life without having to worry about my safety or that life that I lived." I confessed to her. 

"Did you ever think that maybe you actually had feelings for him?" Sophia told me. I looked at her but sighed to myself. 

"What's the point now? He's dead." I said looking up at the ceiling. 

"Rachel come with me. There's something I want to show you." Sophia grabbed my hand and dragged me down the hall. 

"Where are you taking me?" I asked her. Sophia remained silent and lead me up the stairs and into a room. 

"Where are we?" I asked her looking around the room. 

"This is Niall's office. No one was allowed up here but the boys." 

"I don't understand why are you showing this to me?" I asked her confused. 

"Take a seat." Sophia told me gesturing to the rolling chair behind the desk. I did as she told me and gave her a confused look. 

"What now?" I asked her.

"Look around. What do you see?"  She asked me. I looked around the office seeing nothing but blueprints and empty walls. I looked down onto his desk and saw two picture frames. I slowly reached my hand out and grabbed the picture. 

"Although he would never admit it, he did love you. Both of you." I stared down at the picture of me. 

"I can't believe he had this." I whispered. I placed the frame down and grabbed the other one. It was a picture of Niall holding Elizabeth and smiling. 

"Oh my gosh." Was the only words that came out of my mouth. 

"As tough as he looks and sounds it doesn't mean that he isn't a big softy on the inside." I let out a small laugh. 

"Thank you. I needed this." I whispered placing the picture frame back on the desk. 

"Sophia?" She hummed in response. 

"What's going to happen to the gang? What's going to happen to us?" I asked her. 

"After that last rescue mission the gangs dead. Everyone had either been killed, arrested, or is in hiding. As far as I know this gang is better off disappearing." I nodded my head. 

"Hey come on. Why don't we go downstairs and get some food into your system. You haven't eaten in days." Sophia reminded me. 

"Yeah okay." I answered her. We walked out of the office and down the stairs to the kitchen. I saw that the rest of the girls were already there and eating dinner. 

"Is there room for two more?" I asked the girls. 

"Course." Perrie pulled out a chair for me and gave me a plate filled with food. 

"So girls I was thinking..........." Scarlet was cut off by a knock on the door. 

"Are you expecting someone?" Jessica asked us. We all shook our heads. 

"I'll go check it out." Sophia offered cocking a gun.  I looked at her surprise, wondering were she got a gun. Sophia crept to the door and slowly swung it open.............
