7. We Meet Again
We we just got out of the taxi and were now if front of the hospital. We ran in right away to the front desk to ask what room Emily was in. As we stopped at the desk people realized us and ran towards us. We paid no mind and just went on with what we came here for. "What room is Emily Ryan in?" Harry questioned.
"She is in room 127." The lady behind the desk answered.
We pushed thought the crowd and ran down the hall. We made a quick right and looked at the numbers on the doors. 148... 150.. 152... The numbers kept going up we realized we had gone the wrong way and turned around quickly. I slipped and fell but got up quickly along with the rest of the boys tripping and stumbling. It was our Breakfast Club moment. We ran back down the hall and found the room. We barged right in with out a knock. We squeezed through the door all at once. Emily looked up at us.
"Guys?" She was shocked.
We smiled, Harry pushed forward teary eyed. The ran towards each other for the hug. She wrapped her arms around his neck and his around her waist he lifted her up slightly holding on tight.
Here I am holding Emily in my arms giving her a big hug. As I let go I kissed her cheek. "I missed you so much." I leaned my forehead against hers she smiled.
"I missed you too. I love you Haz." She replied
I looked over her shoulder and spotted a young boy with a resemblance of me and was shocked. Noah had gotten so big. The rest of the boys but Zayn joined for a group hug. We all said our hellos and got introduced to Noah, he didn't seem to remember us at all.
I spotted her scrapes and the bandages on her wrist. She had an ice bag in her hand. I needed to know what happened to cause this. "What happened? Why caused you to be here?" I questioned.
She sighed fiddling around with her fingers. "I was at my boyfriends house," she paused a looked up at us. I turned to see Zayn's fist clenched already. "and he want to give me my birthday present."
I could see the hurt in her eyes. I got up and sat next to her gently rubbing her back. "He told me to close my eyes and I did. He was moving his hand up my leg then he... he grabbed my.... you know my chest and I pushed him away and he slapped me." She stopped.
I hated him I didn't even know who he was but I want to kill him. Zayn was really mad along with the other boys. We all wanted to hurt this guy. "After that I grabbed Noah and ran out. I put Noah in my car and shut the door right after that I felt a hand in my hair pulling me back. I told him to stop and he slapped me again than threw me on the floor. Now I'm here." She shrugged.
Emily told us how she ended up here in the hospital and I was furious. What had to happen in someone's life for them to want to abuse a girl? My fist were clenched so tight my knuckles were red. My facial expression was serious. Liam placed a hand on my shoulder telling me to relax. I let my fist unclench and fall to my side. Emily looked over to me with tears in her eyes. I shot her a half smile and she did the same.
"How do you feel?" Louis asked
"A lot better I have to do a little interview thing later." She frowned. "I really don't want to but the have every thing planned already."
I felt bad that she was being forced in a way to do the interview but wanted to get off the topic. "Well how is your career?"
"It's going great." She smiled. "I've been on a tour with Beyonce and dance with Rihanna, Usher, Ne-yo and a lot more when they come to New York. Noah enjoyed the tour with Beyonce. Jay-z came along with us and Blue Ivy it was extremely fun."
They smiled as Noah's head shot up from the game and turned towards us. "Here mom." He said handing me back Emily back her phone.
We all shot her funny looks and she shook her head no and we got the message. Why did he call her mom? Did he know about his parents and that Emily was just his sister? Obviously not if he just called her mom. Before anyone else could ask any questions a nurse came in. "Emily the new people are here for the interview."
She let out a big sigh and picked up Noah and walked outside, we all followed.
"Liam can you hold Noah while I go do the interview?" I asked.
"Yeah sure." He smiled and I walked off to the interviewer.
"Hello you must be Emily." The interviewer name Christine Chow.
"Yes, that's me." I smiled.
"Well Emily can you explain what happened earlier?" Christine asked
"Well there was an incident at this guys how's and he didn't like that i left so he followed me outside. After I put my brother in my car he grabbed me by my hair and I told him to let go he slapped me again than threw me to the floor." I said.
"Can you tell us about the incident." She asked.
"I rather not." I said looking to the ground hiding my face as I felt the tears getting ready to come.
"Are you sure?" She asked again.
I kept my head down and I felt two hands on my shoulders. I looked back and saw Harry. "She said she didn't want to talk about it." He said in a serious tone.
"Lady and gentleman who are watching we have Harry Styles her with us." She smiled.
He looked at me and hugged me from behind kissing my cheek. I smiled and let out a little laugh. "There seems to be a little romance going on here." She winked
We laughed. "No we are just friends." Harry answered still laughing.
"I don't think so let's see a kiss. How many of you out there want to see a kiss." My cheeks flushed ready when Christine said that.
Harry and I shrugged at each other we turned so you could tell and we did a quick 15 second kiss. I heard some one walking behind us and I turned around to see Zayn. He kissed me for a quick 10 seconds and I was shocked. They caught it all on tape. "Well, lets go back to Katy and Jeff in the studio." Christine said right before the cut.
I was shocked from the kiss with Zayn. "Thanks for the interview Emily, and friends." She winked as the walked away to the news van.
I was looking at Zayn a bit shocked as he smiled at me. He had his hands holding loosely on my elbows as we were chest to chest. Harry was beside me and he looked at bit frustrated. I snapped out of it shaking my head and turned back to Harry. "Um.. Haz let's go by Noah and Liam." I said grabbing his hand as we walked away from Zayn.
Harry stopped when we made it to the and turned towards me and pulled me into a comforting hug. He hugged me around my shoulders and mine under his arms with my hands on his shoulders. I laid my head on his shoulder on top of my hand. "I love you Haz." I whispered.
"I love you too Em, and the kiss wasn't bad." He laughed
"It wasn't." I kissed his cheek.
I looked over to Noah in Liam's arms. Noah was just chilling propped up in Liam's arms. Liam was touching Noah's curls and he didnt mind. Noah was spotted a girl that looked his age. He looked at her as she walked passed him. He liked her I could tell. Harry and I looked at each other and laughed. I t was funny yet cute how he was checking out a girl at five years old. "We got a player over here." Louis announced in a laugh.
"He's already a flirt." Liam said while letting go of Noah's curls and placing him in the floor.
"She's cute." Noah said with a smirk.
"Little boy you are five." I replied.
Harry wrapped an arm around me and Zayn walked over to us all. "Hey how is Lila doing?" Niall blurted out.
I laughed him and Lila would make the perfect couple. I wasn't sure if Harry still liked her. "She is doing great. She is a professional teacher at the Broaway Dance Center here in New York. I have to pick her up soon."
"Can we join you?" He asked
"Of course Nialler, follow me to my car." I said while walking with Harry his arm still wrapped around me.
Liam watched noah as we walked and picked him up placing him on his laps so everyone fit in the back seat. I was driving Harry in the passenger seat and Zayn Louis Liam Niall and Noah in the back. "I could drive if you want." Zayn said.
"I got it." I replied and we were off to pick up Lila.
Everyone was getting along again but things were awkward. Harry and Emily had kissed but it wasn't like a 'oh yeah baby' kiss it was like 'best friend I love you' kind of thing but when Zayn saw that he automatically went up to Emily and kissed her. Everything was caught on camera during the interview. Louis and I talked about it and we both agreed that it seemed like Emily enjoyed Harry's kiss more than Zayn's. Liam didn't see any of it he was too into Noah's curls. I knew Harry moved on from Lila so I was good there but I think he had feelings for Emily along with her having feelings for him.
Lila kept popping into my head. Was she taken? Did she still have feelings for me? I needed to know. I still had feelings for her and I wanted to take her out. We had a week free since we flew to New York early. Everyone had time to catch up fix problems and just become close again.i was really looking forward to it and hopefully they could make it to the one of the concerts next week. We are having one in the Prudential Center and one at the Izod center. 'Every night rest in my bed with hopes that maybe I get a chance to see you when I close my eyes' I recognized the song as Sweet Dreams by Beyonce. It was Emily's phone, she answered. "Hey B, sorry I forgot to text. Tell Jay I'm sorry as well." She said.
I knew it was the one and only Beyonce Knowles. I remembered Emily had gone on tour with her but I didn't know they were that close. I never met Beyonce none of us have. Yes we were at the same awards shows but we never met or even got close to her or Jay-z or their daughter Blue Ivy. She is one lucky gal to have met her along with other stars and even work with them. She hung up the phone after a few minutes and then she parked her car and called Lila to come down.
Emily got out of the hospital about a good fifty minutes ago. She just called me to meet her down stairs and she sounded good and to,d me she was happy and that it was completely over with Mark. God I want to kill that boy. Anyway Emily told me she had a surprise for me . It's her birthday and she has a surprise for me, I don't understand this girl. While I was going down the elevator I kept wondering what the surprise could be. Little things came to my mind but nothing close to what I saw. "Hey Em." I smiled walking out of the door or the dance center.
The back door slowly opened and I watched to see who was coming out of the car. I saw brown hair with very little bleach blonde. As he escaped behind the door and out completely facing me I was shocked but completely happy. "Hi Lila." His cute Irish accent hit my send a chill down my spine.
I ran towards him with open arms dropping my sweat shirt and bag. "Oh my gosh Niall."
He hugged me and held me close. "I missed you so much." I whispered kissing his cheek.
I saw the smile grow on his face. "I missed you too Lila."
I didn't want to let go and I could tell he didn't either but Louis "couch" broke us apart. I let go and hugged the rest of the boys. I missed them all but never brought it up with Emily. I knew she didn't like talking about it and we were both so focused on our jobs. I placed my bags in the trunk of her car and she drove me to my house. We no longer lived together. I had a pent house in New York and she always wanted a house like the one in Step Up 3 and that's what she got. I did miss living together but we aren't 18 anymore, we grew up. The ride wasn't long considering there wasn't much traffic today. I got up out of the car and grabbed my bags but before she could drive off I announced something to all of them. "I need three or four of you boys. Any volunteers?" I said
Niall made his way out and following him was Louis and Liam. Liam buckled Noah in. Before Zayn could get out I stopped him. "Zayn you could stay we'll be fine." I winked at Emily and she, as always when I did this to her, gave me the finger. I laughed as we walked up to my house.
