The Unexpected

I'm Talia Brookes. I'm 18 and I live a harsh life. My dad left me and my mom when I was young, then I watched my mom die right beside me, when I was 11. I live alone, in an apartment in New York City. I work at WEEKENDS, a restaurant on the other side of the city. I also work with Charlie, he's kind of like my dad. One day Charlie and I get two new employees, Aimee and Andrea. They're rich, so they must be snotty and stuck-up. The worst part is they always talk about some stupid boy band, One Direction. I hate One Direction, even though I haven't heard a single lyric from any of their songs. One day while the three of us are working, 8 guys walk in. 2 of them come in our direction and the other 6 head for a booth near the window. That's the moment when everything was unexpected and our lives changed forever.

9. Chapter 9

~Louis's POV~

 

I have searched for Talia for ages now and I still can't find her! Where on this planet could she have gone?! I smiled to myself remembering how I was the only one she could trust. I was the only one she told her secrets to. She could have told Aimee or Andy, or any other of the boys but she only told me. 

 

She told me everything from her mom dying and everything they did to how she feels about her father and Charlie. But, unfortunately I let her down and she trusted me and I did everything exactly opposite she wanted me to do. I rubbed her mothers death and her fathers disappearance in her face and now it all ended to her running away and she could be hurt, dead, or lost right now. 

 

But, hold on a second. I checked literally everywhere. Except the abandoned park her mother used to take her to. I immediately made an illegal U-turn and started speeding faster towards the park. When I arrived in front of the run-down movie theaters, I jumped out of my car, not even bothering to turn it off or shut the door and raced behind the theater and saw Talia; but not how I wanted to see her.

 

She was on her knees, holding a huge thick piece of wood in her stomach. There was blood pouring down her stomach and blood all over her hands and she looked just as shocked as I was. She turned and looked at me, and her eyes rolled to the back of head and she fell to the ground, and I screamed really loud. 

 

I ran to her body that was covered in blood, and picked her up and ran to my car. I tossed her in the back seat and jumped into the driver's seat and drove at least 100 mph to the nearest hospital. I didn't even bother calling 911. I couldn't call them, I just needed to get Talia to a hospital as fast as I can.

 

When I arrived at the hospital, I parked my car outside the emergency entrance. I took Talia out of the back seat of my car, and carried her inside and now, I was running. I asked the lady at the desk for a doctor and soon lots of nurses arrived with a gurney and they took Talia from my arms and soon she was being rolled away. I raced after her and once I arrived to the room, they shut the door in my face.

 

I looked in the room and I heard doctors shouting and hurrying yelling things like, "she's losing a lot of blood" and "we need to hurry!". The lady at the front desk soon showed up and escorted me to the waiting area. I asked her to call the guys and Aimee and Andy.

 

I had my head in my hands and I was crying really hard. Soon all the guys and Aimee and Andy showed up and they were all crying as well. Aimee sat next to me, hugging me and rubbing my back for comfort. 

 

I felt like I've been here for ages and I was going to live the rest of my life in this hospital waiting to see Talia again. Liam and Niall left to go get McDonalds since hospital food is very unappetizing (I've known from experience). When they came back, Niall ate like it was the last he was ever going to eat and he hasn't eaten in forever (that, I know isn't true he probably sneaked food into the hospital and ate it before he got McDonalds). 

 

I ate in silence while everyone was talking and laughing like nothing has happened to Talia and we weren't sitting here, in the hospital waiting room waiting to hear if she was even alive right now or not.

 

~Talia's POV~

 

Pain. That is all I felt, just pain. My body ached. I couldn't even move. I couldn't see anything, I was in pitch black. I felt as if I was in a hole and couldn't crawl out. My body twitched, I could feel it. Then, it twitched again. I wasn't doing this, something else was. I could then suddenly hear voices, but ones I didn't recognize. I could then feel a push on my chest, and then I twitched again. Someone was applying force to my chest, as if they were trying to get me to breath. I didn't see the difference though, all I could do was hear an feel. I heard someone say "god, she is not waking up!" and "Come on! Her body is twitching, she's alive." Shes alive? I'm alive? Was I dead? I can't remember anything.

 

My mind is only focusing on all the pain I'm in. Did I die?  Where am I?! I thought. I tried getting up, but it was no use. I couldn't move, and I couldn't get out of the darkness around me. I tried desperately to move, but when your in the darkness, and all you feel is pain, it's not that easy. I felt like I was trying to lift 1,000,000 pounds with just my finger. I wanted to find out where I was, and what happened. I wanted to know. Maybe I can remember, somehow. I tried to think, but nothing popped up. I tried to remember memories, my name, friends? Nothing. Blank. Darkness. I can't remember anything. Heck, I can't remember my name! Was it Andy? No,,, but I feel as if I've heard that before. Aimee? No.... But the same, I feel like I've heard it before. I can't remember my name, how old am I?! 20? No,,, I don't think so anyway. 15? 34? No, no, just no. I can't even remember my freaking age-I then realized something, my body wasn't twitching. There was no force, or talking.

 

Was I all alone? Where are the voices? Am I dead?  Thousands of questions swirled in my head. All without answers. I hate when I don't have an answer to things. I don't remember if I do, just it was already annoying. I was still in a bottom-less pit. Dark, cold, pain. I didn't know what to do. I'm not even sure if I'm alive, or dead. I had no idea where I was, all I saw was blackness, and every single inch of my body felt worse then the rest. I tried moving again, but no use. I couldn't bear the pain. So I decided to just stay here, wherever I was, and deal with this pain. One way or another.

 

~Louis's POV~

 

We were still waiting. I hope Talia is alive, I couldn't bear to hear that she was dead. Everyone was still talking and chatting, like nothing was going on. It annoyed me. How could they sit there, laughing, and not act like they actually care about Talia? "Guys!" I yelled. They stopped and gave me a confused face. "Ya Lou?" Harry asked. "You do know that Talia could be dead right now, right?" They shrugged and nodded. "Then start acting like you care!" I yelled. "Lou we do care, but we also believe that she will be fine, I'm sure everything is-" Before Aimee could finish the doctors came in. They had blood all over their coats and hands. I stood up from the chair I was sitting in, expecting good news and for them to say that she was alive, and happy. But... They didn't have good expressions on their faces. They looked beat, tired, and disappointed. The main doctor sighed, and then walked up to us. "I'm sorry..... But, Talia didn't make it. She is dead." At the same time he stopped, so did my heart.

 

This isn't true, she has to be alive! I couldn't bear it. Please tell me the doctor will soon start to laugh and then say "gotcha!" Then he will pull out Talia, and she would be fine. Healthy, and her happy self. But instead he just stared at us, with a serious face. Aimee and Andy broke down, and started to cry. "IT ISN'T TRUE!" Aimee yelled, on her knees crying. The doctor sighed again. "I'm sorry, we've tried-" I cut him off. "NO! You didn't try hard enough! Talia is alive! I can feel that she is, you have to go back in there and try harder! You have to!" I was sobbing at this point also, and so was Andy and the boys. The doctor shook his head. "I'm sorry! We have done everything possible! You have to except the fact that Talia isn't alive." He broke my heart. I felt like he just kicked me off Mount Everest. "Your lying! Let us in her room!" Andy yelled, while comforting Aimee with Harry. "We can't, your not allowed in a dead patients r-" "SHE'S NOT DEAD!" I yelled, cutting him off. "She is alive! We have to see her! NOW!" I tried pushing past him but he blocked me, and so did the other doctors. Then the rest of the boys joined in, and before we knew it, we were fighting with the doctors. We were trying to punch and kick our way to Talia's room. But more and more doctors kept coming. One even called the cops, so we were fighting cops, doctors, and even some random people joined in. I didn't care who I hit, I needed to see Talia. Alive. She was alive, I had a feeling in my gut. I knew she was alive, she just hasn't woken up yet.

 

~Talia's POV~

 

I was still in the dark. I still felt pain. How long have I been here? Where is here? Who am I? Am I still considered dead? Millions of questions kept swirling through my head, all still without answers. I wanted to get up, out of this darkness, but no. I was in to much pain. So much pain I couldn't even open up my eyelids. I twitched again, on my own this time. I could only twitch, that's it. I wondered if I could twitch myself up. No...that just sounds stupid.

 

I laid there in the black darkness, alone, in pain, twitching out of control and I couldn't control it and boy, was it annoying. Why is it so hard to just lift all this pain, and confusion off my shoulders and just awaken from where I'm at? I wouldn't know, I'm too lost to even remember my own name or age-that's not something you hear everyday, unless your in an unknown black darkness and you're twitching weirdly and you have no idea why. 

 

I don't understand-why can't I understand anything? Why can't I wake up from whatever and know my name and age and remember everything that happened the previous day and know what I'm doing here? I don't know. I don't understand. I haven't understood anything lately. 

 

~Louis's POV~

 

Soon enough, we had about 10 policemen pry us off of all of the helpless doctors. We sat down for awhile, enduring the pain. Talia was probably the best thing that has ever happened to me-even if she told me we couldn't be together. She made me feel like a kid in a candy shop- cliche', but I don't care because it's true. She made me feel like the happiest man in the world. 

 

The doctor came in the room, still in his bloody coat and such, still his eyes filled with sorrow and sympathy. "Again, I'm terribly sorry for your loss. I know what it's like to loose someone so close. You guys are welcome to go see her. You have 10 minutes." He led us to her room and stopped at the doorway, holding out his hand towards inside her room, holding his clipboard. Once we all walked in, he walked away and talked to the receptionist at the desk.

 

I turned my attention from the doctor, back to Talia. Looking at her made my heart break even more than hearing about her dying. She laid there, pale as the winter snow. Her lips were as blue as the sky. She looked so fragile. Her hospital gown had blood everywhere. Her hands covered in blood-everything was just blood. I sat beside her, and held her cold hand. It felt like I was holding hands with an ice cube. I looked at her and cried a tear, only because I let all of my tears escape earlier. I think I have no more.

 

 

"We'll leave you alone for a minute." Liam said escorting the group out of the room. I looked back at Talia and played with her dull hair. Then I started to sing softly rubbing her hand with my thumb.

 

I feel like I'm drowning in ice water

My lips have turned a shade of blue

I'm frozen with this fear

That you may disappear

Before I've given you the truth

I bleed my heart out on this paper for you

So you can see what I can't say

I'm dying here

'Cause I can't say what I want to,

I bleed out just for you

 

I took a piece of paper off the side table and a pen, and wrote a note.

 

Dear Talia,

        I know you probably can't read this right now, but in case you can, it's better for me to write it rather than say it. Talia you are the best thing that has ever happened to me-I couldn't think of spending 3 days with someone better than you. I barely know you; I've known you for like 3 or 4 days but that's not the point. I've loved you the moment I laid eyes on you and I knew you were an angel sent down to be with me. You were made for me. Every time I kissed you, I felt like I've loved you even more than the first time. I guess since you won't wake up, the doctor is right and you're gone, but you'll always stay in my heart forever. I'm going to really miss you princess. You're the most beautiful angel up there and sometime I'll see you soon. I love you.

                        Love,

                                   Louis xxx

 

I pulled the bed covers over her and put the note on her stomach, kissed her head, and walked out. 

 

~Talia's POV~

 

I still lie there, in the black darkness, trying to make all my senses come back. Just my name or age at least. But, I can't. The weight on my shoulders is too much for a small girl like me to handle. I heard the door open and I heard lot's of people come in. 

 

One person sat by my bed and held my hand. The person's hand was so big compared to my tiny hand, and so warm.  "We'll leave you alone for a minute." A British guy said. Him and other people that came in here a second ago walked out of the room and the person next to me was still there, playing with my hair.

 

Then he/she started rubbing my hand with his/her thumb. Then, he/she started singing to me.

 

I feel like I'm drowning in ice water

My lips have turned a shade of blue

I'm frozen with this fear

That you may disappear

Before I've given you the truth

I bleed my heart out on this paper for you,

so you can see what I can't say

I'm dying here

'Cause I can't say what I want to,

I bleed my heart out just for you

 

It was so beautiful and angelic and I knew that it was a guy; my guy. It was Louis. He was here. With me, singing to me in his beautiful angelic voice. Then he let go of my hand and did something else, but by the sound of it he was writing on paper. Then he pulled the covers over me, and placed the paper on my stomach and kissed my head then he started walking out. I knew this was my chance. I had to lift this weight, confusion, and fear off my shoulders-I needed my Louis and friends back. 

 

~Louis's POV~

 

Just as I was walking out, I heard a noise in Talia's room. I turned around and she was moving! She kept twitching and I knew that from this moment, she was alive-there was still hope for me and my Talia.

 

I ran back to her bed, by her side trying to shake her awake. "COME ON TALIA! I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT PLEASE, FIGHT FOR ME, AIMEE, ANDY, THE GUYS, CHARLIE PLEASE TALIA!" I yelled shaking her continuously. Then, her eyes fluttered open and she looked at me, and I looked at her. This has to be a dream.
