AN: The picture to the side is what Grace's dad looks like.

Recap: "Well we could-" Liam started but was interrupted by a knock at the door.

"I'll get it." I got up and walked to the door and opened it. I was shocked to see who it was.

"Hello Grace." He sneered.



Grace's POV

"What are you doing here?" I asked with a hint of fear in my voice. 

"I came to take you home." He smirked and tried to grab my arm. I jumped back and screamed. I heard the boys run over to where I was standing.

"Grace who is this?" Zayn questions in confusion.

"This disgrace of a man was my father." I sneered. The boys gasp and I hear one of them leave the room. My father looks at me with hatred in his eyes. I shudder, but I couldn't look away.

"I am here to take you home." He says in a sickly sweet voice that I grew up hearing all my life. It made me sick hearing it again after these few months. 

"You are NOT taking her with you!" Niall yelled at him, his voice was filled with rage. I walked over to him and wrapped my arms around his waist and he wrapped his arms around my shoulders.

"Please don't let him take me." I whispered in a small voice.

"I promise he won't." He said and tightened his arms around me. I heard someone enter the room and I looked and noticed it was Liam. 

He walked up to me and whispered in my ear. "I called the police, their on their way." I smiled and I looked at Niall and he was smiling. I guess he heard.

"Well look at this the little slut has a boyfriend and friends." My 'father' sneered at me. I could feel the tears pooling in my eyes.

"She is not a slut." Niall snarls at my 'father'. My 'father' just stands there with a smirk on his face.

I freeze in my spot. I know that smirk. Its the smirk he wears right before he beats or rapes me. I Squeeze Niall a little tighter, a scared feeling sinking into my stomach.  Before my dad does anything police sirens are heard outside. My 'father's face falls and he begins to back up out the door, but before he could run three police officers tackle him. 

"Is this the man you were telling us about?" One of them ask. We nod. The officers drag him up from he ground and cuff him. They put him in the police car and drive off. One of the other police officers walk up to me.

"There will be a court date and you will need to testify against him." The police officer said.

"Okay. Call me with the date if you will." I respond.

"I will do Miss." The officer then got into his car and left.

We all walked back inside and sat in the living room, thinking about the recent events. What I couldn't believe was that my dad found me. I felt a tear roll down my cheek and felt someone wip it away.  I looked up and saw Niall looking at his finger with a sad smile. I layed my head on his shoulder and let out a sigh.

"What's wrong?" Niall asked.

"I'm just upset that my dad found me." I sniff and nuzzle my head into Niall's neck as he pulls me into a hug.

"It's gonna be okay. He's in jail right now and you will win the court case. I know that for sure." He says and I can hear the other boys' agreements. I guess they over heard our conversation.

"Well I think it's time for bed." Liam yawned and got up from where he was stretching.

"Fine daddy direction." Louis whined and dragged Harry up to bed. Zayn went upstairs with Liam. Niall got up and held out a hand for me. I grabbed it and got up, but didn't let go. We both walked upstairs holding hands. When we got to my room we let go and he kissed my forehead.

"Goodnight Grace." He walked out of my room closing the door.

I changed into my pjs and crawled into bed. I fell asleep after tossing and turning for awhile.

Grace's dream:

I was in a small gray room. I looked around and heard a door squeek open. I turned and saw my father.

"Where am I." I asked and he just chuckled. I was scared now. I had no idea where I was and my father was here.

"Your at my secret location. No one can find you." He sneered at me and walked towards me. ibacked away from him but ran into a wall.

He grabbed my arms and tied them to the wall and taped my mouth shut. He started hitting my anywhere he could. I was sobbing by this point and I was sure everything was broken. When he was done hitting me he backed away. I thought he was done but he started taking my clothes off. I started thrashing around, screaming against the tape over my mouth. When he was done he took off his clothes. He raped me. When he was finished he untied me and I got dressed. He grabbed my arm and led me to another room. Inside the room I saw the boys, dead. I screamed and screamed. 

"Your little boyfriend is still alive, but not for long." He smirked and turned me towards a boy tied to a chair, blood covering his clothes. Niall.

"Say goodbye." I looked at my father and saw him pointing a gun at Niall. As he fired the gun i jumped in front of Niall.


I  woke up with a start. I realized I was still sobbing. That dream felt so real. Wait Niall!

I jumped off my bed and ran to Niall's room. I opened the door to see Niall sleeping peacefully in his bed. I walked over to where he was and shook his shoulder. He woke up startled and then looked at me. He sat up and pulled me into a hug.

"What's wrong?" He rocked my back and forth and rubbed my back. I started crying again.

"I had a nightmare. I thought you died." I sobbed even harder. He kept rocking me.

"I can assure you I am alive." He said and I nodded. When I stopped crying and looked at him.

"Is it okay if I sleep here with you? Please." I ask with sadness still in my voice.

"Yes you can." He lays down and I lay me head on his chest.

"Thank you Niall." I close my eyes and fall asleep, but not before I heard his response.

"Your welcome Grace." Niall responds and kisses my forehead.
