10. Back At Home

Chapter 10

I sit in my bed with my leg and arm propped up, and just think. Niall is in the hospital. Still the words play in my head, “Niall’s in a coma. The doctor doesn’t know how long it will be, or if he’ll fully recover”. I can’t help, but cry again. The day was going so well, and just like that, my brother was hospitalized, and I may never get him back. It’s crazy how so much can change in such little time. I don’t know what I’d do without him. Every second these thoughts fill my mind. *Knock* I take a breath and say, “Come in,” my voice still shaky. Louis walks in, “Hey Sarah,” he says. “Hi Lou,” I say trying to sound some what together. “Do you want to talk? I mean, you know I’m here for you.” “I just don’t get how things can change so quickly. Right before we were just smiling and having a good time, and then next thing I know, I’m waking up in a hospital with a broken arm and broken leg finding out he is in a coma.” A tear rolls down my cheek. Louis wipes it away with his thumb. “I know. It’s tearing me apart to see one of my best mates stuck in a hospital, so I can’t even imagine how bad it is for you, and I’m so sorry you have to go through this.” By now Louis is crying too, but I can tell he’s trying to be strong. “Louis I appreciate you coming to talk to me.” “Anytime.” He pulls me into a hug, and we just stay like that for awhile. With me crying on his shoulder, and him trying to keep him self composed.

Eventually Louis leaves, and I am left alone in my room. I want to go downstairs, but I have no drive. Knowing that at any moment I could lose Niall forever. I hear another knock at the door. “Come in.” I say still sobbing lightly. My bed shifts, when I look over I see Zayn sitting at the foot of my bed. “Sarah,” he begins. “Yes, Zayn?” I ask. “Do you think we can talk?” Well that was a stupid question. “Yeah, if you’d like to.” “Thank you, this has just been really hard on me.” “I know what you mean,” I say while looking at the floor. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it like it isn’t for you,” “No, Zayn, I understand. I think it’s been pretty hard on everyone.” “I just don’t know what it would be like without Niall around,” He says with tears filling his eyes. I hate this, I want to be strong and help Zayn, but I’m not strong. At this moment I am weak. “I..” I try to say something, but start crying. He takes a deep breath, and walks out of the room. “Liam!” I yell. Within a few seconds Liam comes in. “Would you like to join us downstairs?” He asks kindly. “Please?” I ask. “Of course,” he answers, picking me up carefully. I wince in pain. “I’m so sorry,” he says. I just wrap my arms around his neck, and he takes me down the stairs to the couch. Everyone seems so down. It’s completely silent except for the TV, which nobody seemed to actually be paying attention to. Liam sits down next to me, so I look over to him. He wraps his arms around me while I lay my head on his chest. “Liam, I don’t want it to be like this. It’s so depressing. We haven’t said anything not involving Niall, and his current situation. It’s just awkward,” he just looks at me. “I know babe, it’s just that none of us know how to act right now. It’s not like when he’s out at the store. We know he will come back. I guess it just makes things more tense.” “I know, I just wish it wasn’t” He leans in and kisses my forehead lightly before letting a tear fall from his face. I wipe it away with my thumb, and stare into his beautiful brown eyes. They don’t look the same, they are emptier than usual.

We continue sitting on the couch watching the TV in silence, until finally Louis says something. “I’m a bit hungry, anyone want to join me for a bite?” I was so happy to hear Louis ask that. “I’ll come with,” I say looking around to see if anyone else wanted to come. I looked at Liam and he nodded, getting up and getting my wheelchair for me. “Thank you,” I smile. “Your welcome, let me grab my coat, and I’ll be ready to go. Would you like your jacket?” “Please, that would be great,” I say. I can’t help, but smile at the way he jogs throughout the house. “Is anyone else coming?” I question, looking around. “I might as well,” Harry announces as he stands up from the couch. “I may, it depends on where you guys are heading,” Zayn says. “Hmm, somewhere close hopefully?” I ask looking over to Lou. “Anything you’d like love,” He says smiling. “Thanks Lou, maybe we can ask Liam my mind is blank.” “Ask me what babe?” He looks to me. “Where to go to lunch, we agreed close, but not on a specific place.” “Well there is this Italian place about fifteen minutes away. If that’s fine with everyone?” “Sounds good,” Zayn says, putting on his shoes. “Okay well, let’s head out then,” Louis says walking out the door.

The ride there was nice. It wasn’t as quiet, but it was still tense. We end up at the corner where Niall and I crashed. I turn and burry my face in Liam’s chest. He wraps his arms around me protectively, and kisses the top of my head. “I’m sorry Sarah, I didn’t know…” Louis says. “It’s not your fault Lou, you didn’t know,” I say. I look up from Liam’s chest to see him still looking at me with concern. I just cuddle back up into him, and smile letting him know that I’m fine now.

When we get there, Liam wheels me to a booth. The boys fill in the booth, Liam sitting on the edge to be next to me. The waiter comes over and hands us our menus. “I can take your drink orders if you guys are ready,” the man tells us. “I would like a sprite, and the same for Sarah please,” Liam answers while taking my hand to show the man who I am. “Coke for us please,” Harry says pointing to Louis and Zayn. “Will do. I’ll be back to take your food orders in just a moment.”

The waiter walks over pushing a tray filled with amazing looking food. I got a simple order of pasta. Liam got a plate of spaghetti. Zayn got a pizza to spilt with Harry and Lou. We had a nice conversation, luckily without the awkwardness we had before. “Everybody finished?” Zayn asks looking around. “I am,” I say pushing my plate away from me. “Me too,” Liam says. “I agree,” Harry adds. “I guess we can get going then,” Louis finishes getting up. The boys split the bill, not letting me pay. “Liam, can we go see Niall?” I ask looking up at him. “Sure babe, let me see if the lads want to go with us.” He walks over to them. I wait for him to come back over. When he does he says, “They said sure, but they won’t be staying very long, so if you feel like staying a while then we can stop at home first to take my car.” “Thank you,” I say just above a whisper.
