13. Bad News
I got up and wiped my tears up but they kept coming out. I ran into Niall’s room because the doctors wouldn’t let me into Louis’ room. “What happened?” Niall said with concern. I ran to him and he pulled me into his bed. He put his arms around me to form a hug. I cried harder and harder into his chest. “What happened?” Niall said repeating himself. “I don’t know really. It happened too fast. All I know is that Louis got shot from Jake.” I said through my tears. Niall was speechless. “Where?” He managed to spit out. “He got shot in the hallway in the hip.” I said still crying. Niall kissed the top of my head and I could see that he was crying a little. A doctor walked in and had a frown on his face. “Leah can I talk to you?” he said. I nodded my head and got out of Niall’s grip and bed. I walked over to him and he motioned me to come in the hallway. I shut the door and sat in one of the chairs in the hallway. He sat down too and looked me straight into my eyes. “Louis has been shot obviously. We managed to get the bullet out of his side but he is wounded badly. He might not survive because this bullet had some type of poison coated around it but he might fight against the poison and survive.” “What’s the chance?” I said crying harder. “Very little chance.” “Can I see him?” He nodded his head and led me to a room. I ran in and saw Louis breathing very slowly. He was awake but almost dead. I ran up to him and grabbed his hand and cried harder and harder. “Don’t cry.” He said. “I am going to survive I promise.” I couldn’t talk but I nodded. “I love you.” He said. “I love you too.” I said through my tears. “Come into this bed with me.” I nodded my head and got in the bed. He put his arms around my. I laid there still crying and trying to keep this moment with me forever. “Promise me that you won’t die.” I said. “I promise.” He said. He wiped up my tears with his thumb but they kept coming. He kissed my forehead and I closed my eyes but the tears kept coming out. He fell asleep and so did I.
