2. Coping

She sat in the room for as long as she could just watching them prep the room for the next person. It is weird how a couple of hours could change someone's life forever. She picked up her phone and dialed Alex's number. "hello?" She asked worried. "We need to talk.." Ashley told her crying. Ashley continued to cry all the way to her old house. She took all the energy she had to walk up to the front door. Alex answered right after the first knock. Ashley couldn't do it anymore, she ran into Alex's arms and hugged her crying. Alex, had now figured out why she was crying and cried with her. Harry joined them from upstairs and hugged both of us. "I loved him, I have messed up so much." Ashley told both of them still crying. "Ash, it's not your fault!" "Not the cancer, but I wasn't there to spend the last few months of his life, the one person he cared for the most wasn't there for him when he was dying." Ashley fell to the ground and went into hysterics. "I can't go on like this, I have lost everything. My dad, my best friend. And the one person I loved more than everything in the world." Ashley continued. "I don't think I can live anymore.." Ashley said, "Stop it!" Alex yelled, "You still have me, and I am NOT losing you!" She literally yelled that still crying. By now all of the boys including Niall's parents now knew. It was the hardest couple of weeks Ashley had ever faced.

Two weeks have passed and Niall's funeral was that day. Ashley put on the same dress she had on for her father's funeral. Her mother even came with her two step kids and husband. Everything had been a complete blur, Ashley had stopped caring about everything. She just thought God didn't love her anymore. Which Alex had to remind her everyday that he did. Ashley had quit her job and moved back with Alex, since they were besties again. The funeral was a lot like her dad's except she didn't have to plan it. Niall's family had to. Ashley could only imagine how hard it would be for them. After his family members gave their speech about him it was her turn. She was so scared to talk about him, since she thought he hated her. "I would just like to say that Niall was the most interesting person I had ever met. He definitely lit up a room with his hearty laugh and gorgeous smile." She started to weep but continued. "He was the only person I felt comfortable with, I wasn't afraid to tell him anything. After my father died, he helped me through it every step of the way. When he would come over I wouldn't have any food left. I am not afraid to admit I was in love with him. And I always will be." After the speech Ashley sat down and smiled through her tears, she was glad to have said that. 

It has been a year now, Ashley has moved on with her life, still thinking about Niall everyday. She is in her first year of college, on her way to becoming a lawyer. Alex on the othe rhand is still in an serious relationship with Harry. Who knows where it is going? One Direction has kept going, basing a lot of their songs on Niall, or dedicating them to him. Danielle and Liam have been married for a year now. Louis and Eleanor are engaged, and Ashley is definitely planning on being there for them. Ashley keeps in touch with her mom still, visiting them for the holidays and birthdays. She has changed the way she looks at life. 

Today was the anniversary of Niall's death. Ashley pulled up to the grave site with a vase of flowers. She placed them down and smiled at the grave remembering the good times. "Niall, you were the highlight of my summer. I can never forget you. Or the way you impacted my life. When I have kids, I will name them after you. I really like the name James, and Niall. Anyway, I love you babe. Forever && Always." She said then walked back to her car. This is the start to a new beginning.
