The Fray - "Happiness"


Time stood still. Well, it felt like it…


I looked at him, and got lost in his beautiful eyes. I could hardly breathe. It felt like him and I, were the only ones left in the world, and that everything would be okay, if I were with him. 


"Niall" I whispered to myself.


To see his face, like… I felt so relived.


"You have absolutely no idea how much -" I stopped talking.


He took a deep breath, and I just waited for him to say- or do something. I didn’t know what exactly I was waiting for, maybe a kiss or a hug? Or just the words “I love you”? I just wanted him to do something.


He didn't look me in the eyes, and it worried me. He finally opened his mouth.


"We need to talk" he said. His voice was extremely hoarse; it must’ve been because of all the crying.


I finally moved and walked with him out in the hallway, where we sat down at some of the blue chairs. A lot of nurses and patients walked by, but the only thing I could concentrate on right now was Niall. Tears ran down my face of happiness of seeing him again. I leaned forward and gave him a tight hug. After all that had happened, I thought that I was never going to do that again, so to feel his body next to mine, was a bit overwhelming. It was like I hadn't seen him in forever! I kept holding him tight.


"I love you so much" I said, and expected him to say that he loved me back. But he never did… He didn’t hug me back either, he pushed me away instead.


“Don't" he said sharply.


"W-what? Don't what?" I asked, really confused. Don't what?


He sat still for a moment, and then finally answered my question. Unfortunately it wasn't the answer I expected and wanted to hear.


"Love me. Don't love me." I heard him say.


"Wha-" before I got to say any more, he interrupted me with his now really hard voice.


"It's going to be really hard for you to love me, 'cause I'm leaving you.” His voice was trembling. ”Therefore, I don't want you to love me, 'cause I don't love you. I can't...”


I looked into his eyes, and saw a tiny tear. It was away a second later, but I saw it…


“Greg is going to leave me, so I'm leaving you. With you by my side, I can't concentrate on the important things. That Greg is soon going to die made me realise something. Life is more than just having a laugh, and spending your evenings chilling with a girl on the couch. You're not that important. So I'm going to live my life, have a blast, and end it with you. We're done".


All the words flew around inside my head. He was still looking down, and with no face expressions at all. Silence. I couldn't even cry. I couldn't scream or beg him to stay. All I could was just to sit there, and watch him.


"I want you to leave the hospital, and also my life, now. If you haven't moved out from our apartment in three days I'll move out myself".


These words were his last before he got up, walked down the long white hospital hallway, and then disappeared into room number six.
