Up And Leave- Vikklan Part 4

Start from the beginning

"But I could have!" He said, rather loudly. "I could have done something and I could have stopped it! I want to make it up to you."

"You don't need to To-" He cut me off as we slipped into the car, Lachlan in the drivers seat, me in the front passenger and Tobi in the back seat just behind me.

"I do Vikk. There's something I need to tell you about the Sidemen, they're plotting to come and get you, to try... to try and silence you." He looked disgusted at the very idea and stared out the window, gathering his thoughts. "There's no way in hell I'm going to let that happen but I don't know how to stop it without telling you."

"How do you mean?" Lachlan said suspiciously, not taking his eyes off the road.

"I think they're planning to go the.. less legal route and they booked flights to Australia for next week. I'm not sure what to do because they obviously know where you live and everything and I'm scared for your safety because I don't know what they'll do."

I blinked, scared, and looked up at Lachlan. He seemed a little skeptical but also very worried and I was pretty shaken up because I didn't believe that they would ever go so far as to turn to trying to silence me, to come and try and get me. They had threatened me, threatened to kill me, shut me up, but I never thought they would try and go through with it.

"How... how do you know this?" Lachlan asked.

"Because they were planning it when I was still in the group. I was already planning to leave but that was the last straw and I couldn't stay any longer so I left. They threatened me if I told you about what you were planning so that was why I flew here."

Lachlan and I glanced between each other, unsure but still convinced that he was telling the truth. He wouldn't lie about something that serious, not to my face.

"What do we do?" I whispered, feeling the panic rising inside me when I realised that in just a few days the Sidemen could be in Australia looking for me.

"We have to go somewhere else, find somewhere to stay. I'm not risking you." I nodded, knowing that it was true. We had to find somewhere else to stay.

"But where? Is there anywhere we can go that they don't know?" Lachlan nodded.

"Elliot's. He's just moved and none of the Sidemen have been down here for years, so they might have not even been to his old place and he'll be okay with it." I nodded.

There was a plan. A basic and panicked plan, but a plan.

--------------------------------------------------

Elliot was immediately okay with Lachlan, Tobi and I to stay at his house for a while, until we either got confirmation that they were gone or until we got a way to get them away from us. Only 3 hours after Tobi arrived in Australia we had packed up, locked the house and were on our way to Elliot's, on the edge of Brisbane and just out of the city.

Lachlan and I both took some of our recording setups because Elliot didn't have enough for both of us, Tobi being okay with recording sparingly or not at all. We had taken most of the important things from Lachlan's and made sure the house was completely locked down, no keys outside or anything so if the Sidemen turned up then they couldn't get inside unless they broke a window or something.

I spent that night crying because I was so scared. Lachlan held me close and whispered comforting words into my ear to try and get me to sleep but because I was so worked up I didn't sleep until almost 3am, and even then it was a fitful sleep. I woke up the next morning with bloodshot eyes and a heavy heart, barely functioning.

"Are you okay Vikky?" He whispered, kissing my forehead gently.

"No." I mumbled. "I'm so scared." I could barely hold in my tears and Lachlan just held me close, crying himself.
