57. Goodbye


They look serious but upset. Harry and Niall holding the front two corners Liam and Zayn behind them with Louis carrying the flowers. The placed the coffin at the front of the church with the flowers on top and either side and stood with us. Harry next to me and the boys by their other halves the vicar emerged from the front of the church and we all sat down

"Welcome and thank you for coming to say your final goodbyes to Ava Marie Styles"

The ceremony continued for 30 minutes with speeches from the boys reading a poem

"We cannot say and We will not say
That she is dead, she is just away." Niall said loudly so everyone could hear

"With a cheery smile and a wave of hand
She has wandered into an unknown land" zayn continued

"And left us dreaming how very fair
Its needs must be, since she lingers there." Liam spoke

"And you-oh you, who the wildest yearn
From the old-time step and the glad return" Louis said in his best reading voice

"Think of her faring on, as dear
In the love of there, as the love of here" Niall said again

"Think of her still the same way" Zayn repeated

"We say" Liam said

"She is not dead" Louis said looking at me

"she is just away." They all said looking at me and Harry gently smiling

"Thank you" I mouthed and smiled at them after the boys sat down Mel and Gemma stood up and both said a few words then it was Harry's turn to talk I went up with him and stood at his side holding his hand. I looked at all the people who came mum, dad, mel, Anne, rob, Gemma people from school my tutor miss Hathaway and our head teacher were at the back other friends of mine and Harry's from school relatives all sitting there watching me and Harry stand in front of our baby girls coffin

"Erm I really don't know what to say after everyone but erm..." He took a deep breathe and I squeezed his hand tighter

"We'd both just like to say thank everyone...for everything...when we first found out about Ava I have to say it was a bit of a shock to the system"

my mind span back to when Harry found out then to when my parents found out and everything that's changed

"We all admit it could have gone better but that's where we learnt from our mistakes but I couldn't be happier when it finally dawned on me that I was going to be the father of Bonnie's beautiful baby" he looked at me and smiled

"Let's just say it hasn't been the most smoothest ride" he laughed to himself thinking about it all

"But we all made it out okay in the end" everyone laughed at his comment

"Well some of us" he joked

"But no really Ava was the best thing that happened in my life apart from this special lady right here" he put his arm around my shoulder

"And I couldn't be more grateful of Bonnie she bought me happiness and joy all by a little bundle of us"

I looked at mum and Anne and they were both in tears I think I was starting to go

"Ava bought everyone together that's what's she did she made 2 different families into one as well as bringing in friends"

me and Harry both looked over to the boys with their girls who were all smiling at us

"And Bonnie" he span around and looked at me

"This girl is the most bravest, most caring and loving girl I could ever know in fact there will ever be. Bonnie you've have been so brave and strong during all of this and you've kept me going when no one else could and I can not thank you enough"

I smile through my tears looking into his eyes they were in tears too I don't think there was a dry eye in the church

"Ava maybe gone but I see her everyday in Bonnie and I'm glad that I do because then I know she isn't completely gone so again i'd like to thank you all for being here today, for being there everyday...mum and Liz thank you for everything for keeping us in line and helping the whole way. Rob and Hugh thank you for being our rock during all this you've taught me a lot about being a great dad and Mel and Gemma where would we be without our older sisters eh? And the boys Louis, Niall, Liam and Zayn you mean the world to me and Bonnie and I know Ava thought the world of all of you thank you for sticking around you really are brothers to me. And girls Dani, Perrie, El and Millie. You've picked us up when we are all down and helped Bonnie when I couldn't so thank you. And everyone else here! You know why you're here because you meant the world to me, Bonnie and Ava and you know why we're saying thank you"

I sighed heavily trying to hold back the tears but it was too late for Harry. Tears fell down his cheeks

"Ava will never be forgotten but they say that only the good die young and she was the best there could be"

Harry gripped me tighter in his arms

"To Ava"

he span around from everyone facing the coffin that stood in front of us kissed finger tips and held it out to the coffin people stood up and started clapping tears streaming down everyone's faces soon the whole church was up on their feet applauding Harry? Ava? Us? I don't know but I was grateful and I knew every word Harry just said he meant and I mean it just as much as he does
