25. A comforting hand
My heart stopped. "You're pregnant?!" I repeated. "Yes! And it's 100% positive!"she smiled. I just looked away. I'm too young for this, my career is just starting! I can't take care of a baby, I know I talked to her about it... but not right now. The smile had faded from her face, her bottom lip was trembling. I saw a tear plop onto her hand. "Your not happy are you.." she trailed off. I didn't answer, more like I don't know how to. She got up off my lap and walked out to the balcony. I watched her go, her hand slowly slipping out of mine. I watched her walk to the chairs and sit down. She placed a hand on her stomach and started to sing. I could hear her through the glass, she had the voice of an angel. I closed my eyes, I don't know what to do....
"It's going to be okay little one, I just know it," I said to the tiny life inside me. "Here is, the place where I love you. Deep in the meadow, hidden far away, a cloak of leaves a moonbeam ray. Forget your woes, and let your troubles lay. And when again it's morning, they'll was away..." I sang to him. I knew it was a boy, I could feel it in my bones. I heard the glass door open, but I held my stare at the ground. "Niall called us all out into the living room and told us. It's ok love," I heard a voice say. I looked up, "El! What on earth are you doing here?! I thought you would've hated my guts!" I gasped.
She was dressed in a pair of Louis's pjs. I smiled, "I wish I had a relationship like you and Lou.." "Honey, look at me," she cupped her hands around my face,"You are a beautiful girl. You know that right?" I shook my head no."Well you are! And Niall is lucky to call you his," she got down on her knees and put her hands in my lap. She smiled at me, "Did you know, that an old legend says that every person is born with half a heart, and they go looking their whole life to find the person with the other half?Well I think we both know that Niall has your other half and you have his." she touched my nose with her finger. She stood up and offered me her hand, which I gladly took, and she pulled me into a huge bear hug. "El, thank you so much for talking to me. You have no idea how much it means to me!" I managed to say between tears. "Now now honey, don't cry! Your gonna make the baby upset!" she teased and put and ear to my stomach. "Let's go back inside, shall we?" she offered me her hand and lead me inside.
