Gotta Be You

I know how they both feel and now all that’s left to do is to find out how I feel.

And right now, my heart is stuck in the middle of a tug-o-war. Niall pulling hard on one side and Harry pulling just as hard on the other.

6. The Dreadful Call from the Hospital

 

Harry’s POV

 

“We shouldn’t have let her go driving like that,” Louis said, pacing back and forth in the living room. We had sat down in the living room not knowing what to do.

Both Niall and Isla had left upset and it was my entire fault. I shouldn’t have kissed her. I was being so selfish.

It had been and hour and a half and neither Niall nor Isla had responded to our multiple texts or calls. I was starting to get worried.

“Should we go look for them?” Dani said.

“Niall just went for a walk so he should be okay, it’s Isla we should be worried about but she could be anywhere,” El replied.

“But we should still try,” I said, getting up, “I’m gonna go look for her and if any of you want to help, that would be great.”

I started to head towards the door but stopped when I heard a phone ring. I turned around and saw that it was El’s phone. She quickly sat up straight and she looked at the caller ID. She gasped and put her hand over her mouth, looking like she was going to cry. Lou walked over to her and sat down and started comforting her.

She looked up at everyone and said, “It’s the hospital.”

My knees gave way and I had to hold onto the back of the couch for support as she answered her phone.

“H-Hello?” she said, shakily, “yes, this is Eleanor…yes, Isla’s my friend,” tears started forming in her eyes, “what?!...are you sure it’s her?...okay, I’ll be there right away…thank you.” She hung up and started crying.

“What happened?!” I said, my heart beating fast, dreading what the hospital just told her.

My heart dropped when Isla’s name was said. I waited for El to answer.

She sniffled as she tried to calm down. “Isla g-got into a h-huge car accident…a cargo truck hit her c-car and she ended upside d-down in a ditch…she’s in the hospital now.”

I dropped to my knees as I heard what happened. This was my entire fault! I hurt Isla and now she’s in the hospital because of me. I felt someone grab my arm and pull me up and guide me to the couch to sit down.

“Harry, are you okay?” Liam said, kneeling in front of me, I didn’t move or say anything. I was still in shock.

“Look, we have to go to the hospital to see how she’s doing. Did you wanna come?” he said.

I slowly looked up at him and nodded. He grabbed my arm again and helped me up but I politely shook him off as I started heading towards the door.

“I’ll drive, everyone go in the Range Rover,” Louis said, “but someone should stay here and wait for Niall.”

“I’ll stay and we’ll meet you guys there,” Liam said. Everyone else then got out and went in Lou’s car.

The drive felt longer than it actually was. I just needed to see that Isla was okay.

We had finally arrived at the hospital and everyone quickly got out. We entered the hospital and headed straight to the reception’s desk.

“Hi, we’re looking for a patient named Isla Abbott, she got into a car accident today,” El said to the receptionist.

“Yes, she is in room 208, just take the elevator to the second floor and it’s the fourth door on the right,” she replied.

“Thanks,” El said, before all of us walked towards the elevator. We got to the second floor and found her room.

I saw a doctor and a nurse inside her room and a curtain was covering Isla. We waited outside until the doctor came out.

I quickly stood up from my chair and walked up to him. “Is she okay?” I said, frantically.

“You’re here for Isla Abbott?” he said, looking at all of us.

“Yes,” I quickly replied, wanting to know how she’s doing.

“Well, she’s lucky she survived with her injuries, multiple cuts and bruises, three broken ribs, her right wrist is broken, she hit her head multiple times and she lost a lot of blood. And, unfortunately, most of those are what caused her to go into a coma,” the doctor said, with a serious look on his face.

Once I heard him say ‘coma’ it felt like throwing up. I felt like taking everything close to me and throwing it. I felt guilty and angry but I had to control myself.

“I have to check on the other patients so I will be back later to check up on her again. The nurse is just changing her bandages then you guys can go in, just wait out here for now, if you have any questions just ask the reception to come get me,” he said, politely.

“We will, thank you,” Louis said. So we all sat down on the chairs and waited. Liam had called Louis and said that Niall came home and that they were on their way.
