41. The Darkness

*Madison’s POV*
I woke up the next morning with a pounding headache. As I stretched I noticed the sparkling ring on my finger. It felt so surreal, I’m engaged. Not only am I engaged but I am engaged to Niall Horan. The love of my life, since before he even knew me. Since I was a speck in the world and he wasn’t even aware of my existence. And now I get to love him forever. The only thing that worries me is I have to tell him about Zayn. It could cause problems in the band and I would hate for me to be the cause. Suddenly I heard a knock,
“Princess? Are you awake?” I smiled to myself knowing that this would be my life from now on.
“Yeah.”
“Can I come in?”
“Sure.” He poked his head in first and smiled at me.
“Good morning love.”
“Morning.” He walked in and sat at the edge of my bed. Niall then gingerly took my left hand and smiled from ear to ear. He seemed so happy and so pleased with himself. I suddenly felt a wave of guilt wash over me. “Niall I’m so sorry for creating problems yesterday. I didn’t mean it…I…”
“Maddy don’t be sorry. I was just worried about you. I thought I somehow offended you or something along those lines.”
“But I made a mess of your big day…”
“It was our big day love.” He smiled. I looked down,
“I’m just really sorry.” He put his finger under my chin and brought my lips to meet his. The kiss was soft and slow. The sweetness in it took my breath away.
“Stop apologizing” he breathed.
“I’m going to get something to drink” I breathed back. I went down to the kitchen and there was Zayn sitting all alone. But something seemed off about him. He looked like he hadn’t slept at all.
“Hi Maddy” he slurred.
“Zayn have you been drinking?”
“N-o” he hiccupped.
“Ok lets get you back to your room then hmmm.”
“N-o. I need to ta-lk to you” he mumbled.
“Not like this you don’t. C’mon.” He got out of his chair and stumbled closer to me. Clearly he was drunk and I had never dealt with a drunk person before. I turned to go get Niall or one of the boys but as I did he grabbed my wrist and pinned me against the wall. “Zayn let me go” I spoke calmly to him.
“Not until you talk to me” he said. I could smell the alcohol the radiated off of him. His grip on my wrist tightened.
“Ow Zayn you’re hurting me.”
“I know you have feelings for me. Ever since I kissed you! You can’t hide them from me anymore Maddy!” he spoke harshly.
“You don’t know what you’re saying,” his grip tightened again, “ow Zayn stop!” I looked deep into his eyes hoping to find the boy that knew this was wrong. To find the Zayn that would never hurt me. For a split second, I found him and I felt his grip loosen just a tad. Then that moment was gone. Drunk Zayn came back and he let go of my wrist only to force his lips onto mine. His kiss was rough and needy. I used all my force to push him away.
“You want me Maddy!” he screamed, “I know you do!”
“No Zayn” was all I had time to say before he hit me. He hit me so hard that I collapsed onto the ground like a ton of bricks. I held my face as I felt the bruise forming.
“We belong together Maddy!” he yelled as he kicked me.
“Zayn…” he kicked me again. I heard faint footsteps as everything around me was going black. My head felt wet and it stung. Zayn then threw his empty bottle at me and stepped on my ankle. I screamed out in pain as I heard it crack. Then I saw red. Zayn kicked me one last time before I saw Liam pry him off. Louis and Niall were at my side and Harry was helping hold Zayn back. Liam shouted for someone to call 911 and Niall was over me crying. Liam and Harry dragged Zayn outside and Louis was trying to stop the bleeding. Niall pulled out his phone and called an ambulance. Louis touched my ankle and I screamed. Niall kept talking to me, trying to keep me awake. Everything hurt. I could see that Niall was hurting too. I heard someone burst through the door and I curled up in a ball hoping it wasn’t Zayn. I started to cry and shake. It hurt to breathe so I started to gasp for air. Niall tried to calm me down, reassuring me that it was just the medics and they were here to help me. I didn’t want to hurt anymore and the darkness was tempting. So I finally gave up. I surrendered myself to the darkness.
*Niall’s POV*
I hovered over her body. The paramedics hurried over and pushed me out of the way. There was nothing that I could do. I felt so helpless. The only good news was that she still had a faint pulse. They strapped her to a gurney and wheeled her out of the house. I followed them out to the ambulance but they wouldn’t let me go with her.
“That’s my fiancé in there!” I sobbed.
“Sir there’s no room. She’s in a critical state”
“Don’t make me leave her…please….don’t make me leave her.” I begged. The paramedic looked around the bus and finally allowed me to go with. I sat down by her and held her hand. I couldn’t get too close because they were working on keeping her stable. I cried silently and looked at her ring. I didn’t know how much damage Zayn caused so all I did was prepare myself for the worst.
*Harry’s POV*
I quickly pulled out my phone and called Annie and Maddy’s parents. I told them where to meet us and what I knew about how she was doing. Her parents asked me if she was alone and I assured them that Niall had gone with her. The sound of Annie crying was unbearable. I told her I would pick her up after we got things sorted out with Zayn. I walked back outside where Liam and Louis were struggling to control him. He was fighting back but as I got a closer look I could see that he was crying.
“Lou…loosen up a bit.”
“Harry…?”
“Just trust me for a second. Don’t let him go just loosen your grip. Liam you do the same.” They both looked at each other skeptically then finally loosened their grips. Zayn slumped down to his knees and cried out loud. “Zayn?” I spoke quietly and slowly approached him. He just covered his face and cried harder. Liam and Louis let go.
“Zayn?” Liam spoke.
“Why did I do that?” he screamed through his tears.
“We were wondering the same thing.” Louis spat.
“I don’t even remember touching her! I just saw her on the ground and my hands…that’s not hers is it?” We all looked around at each other then back to him.
“Shhhh…”
“Don’t tell me to be quiet! I did this! I hurt her and Niall! He’s never going to forgive me and she’s always going to be afraid of me! What did I do?! What did I do?” he sobbed and rocked back and forth like he was consoling himself. Liam bent down so he was at least eye level with Zayn,
“I thought you loved her?” Louis and I looked at each other. We didn’t understand how none of us caught it before.
“I do! I do love her! That’s why I drank. I drank so much because it hurt. I didn’t want to love her. I was mad that she agreed to marry Niall. I was mad at her for making me love her. I was mad at Niall for having her. I was mad at myself for loving her when she was never mine to love! But I never wanted to hurt her. I just wanted to forget” he finally whispered.
“Well I don’t advise that you go to the hospital and do all your explaining now, but when we find out how she is doing and once Niall has had a chance to calm down that is a conversation that you two need to have” was all I could say to him.
“I’ll stay with you” Liam offered.
“Thank you” he quietly cried.
*Niall’s POV*
As we pulled up to the hospital I could feel the knot in my stomach growing. We ran out of the bus and straight through the white doors. One doctor was holding an oxygen mask on her face while the others were trying to get her an IV. My poor princess. She looked so helpless with all the tubes attached to her, and here I was with the ability to do nothing to take away her pain. When we reached the ER doors the same nurse turned to me stopping me in my tracks and ripping Maddy’s hand from my own,
“Mr. Horan I’m sorry but I can’t let you go any further.
“NO! I can’t leave her alone. I promised!”
“She needs immediate care!” she argued back.
“But…I promised.” I cried as I slumped down the wall and buried my face in my hands. I started to cry violently. The nurse got down to my level,
“We are doing everything we possibly can to help her. Go wait in the waiting room and we’ll send someone when there’s more news.”
“Thank you.” She gave me a warm smile and extended her hand to help me up. She escorted me to the waiting room then left to go help with Maddy. I couldn’t sit still. I couldn’t get comfortable. Then I heard a door swing open. It was Annie and she was just as hysterical as I was.
“Anything?” I just shook my head. She looked down and began to cry again. I got up out of my seat and hugged her. We both needed the comfort and we were the only ones in the rom. He hugged me back and clung to my shirt like it was her lifeline. “What even happened?” she sobbed.
“I don’t know.” She looked up at me with her tear soaked baby blue eyes and just started at me.
“She is going to be alright…right?”
“I really wish I knew that answer.” I told her. She started into my eyes and her eyes quickly flickered down to my lips and I copied her. Before I could comprehend what was happening we were both leaning in and our lips touched. My emotional state took over I kissed her like my life depended on it. Then I suddenly stopped and back away realizing what I had just done.
“I’m sorry.” She said
“No no no I told her I would never…”
“Niall. Niall stop.” She said putting her hands to my chest to stop me from pacing.
“That was way out of line and I am so sorry” I apologized.
“We are both to blame” she answered, “but no one can ever find out.”
“Agreed. I’m happy with Maddy and you have Harry.” As if on cue Harry and Louis walked in. Annie quickly pulled away taking her hands off my chest and ran into Harry’s arms as he comforted her. Louis came over to me,
“Are you ok?”
“No.” I croaked.
“She’ll be fine…”
“How could he do this to me?” I asked him, like he knew the answer.
“I don’t know mate. I really don’t.”
“I need some air.” I said as I walked out. Once I hit outside I started running. I didn’t know where I was going but I needed to get far away from here. I needed to get away from Annie, Zayn, and what lies ahead for Maddy. I broke my number one promise to her again. This time I’m sure she will never forgive me. I didn’t realize how long I had been gone until I looked at my phone and saw all of my missed calls and texts. His latest one told me to hurry back so I took off sprinting again. When I came back through the doors Annie looked at me and scooted closer to Harry. The nurse was out like she had promised me and she asked me to sit. “Well?”
“Mr. Horan she….has 3 broken ribs, a broken ankle, suffered severe blood loss and a severe concussion,” she paused and started at all of us, “and she’s awake.” I smiled wide and jumped out of my seat. “Only one of you in there at a time so we don’t overwhelm her and I’m assuming you would like to be first.” She looked at me. She nodded and directed me to follow her to room 228. We made it there and she extended her arm letting me know it was safe to go in. I slowly walked in and took in the sight of her broken body. She had cuts and bruises all over her face and everything was swollen. I brought a chair next to her and gingerly grabbed her hand.
“Maddy?” I spoke quietly.
“Mmmmmmmmm” she opened her eyes and looked at me, “Niall?”
“Yes babe. How are you?” I asked the obvious.
“It hurts.” She cried.
“I know. I’m so sorry.”
“Please don’t leave.”
“Never.”
“He’s…not here? Right?”
“No. Liam’s with him back at the house.”
“Ok. Don’t be mad at him ok?”
“Love look at what he did to you.”
“He was drunk. I pissed him off.”
“I don’t think you could’ve prevented his drinking.”
“I know why he drank so much.” She breathed.
“And why is that?”
“It’s not my reason to tell” she huffed.
“I don’t think he’ll ever tell me now.”
“Then I guess you’ll never find out” she did her best to smile at me.
“You know I love you right?” I smiled back.
“I guess” she teased. “How long do I have to stay?”
“Until you’re healthy babe.”
“I don’t like it in here”
“I know love.” I said staring at her ring. I could feel her studying my face and I looked at her and did my best to smile.
“What’s wrong? And don’t tell me it’s nothing.” She urged while breathing in deep and holding her ribs. “If it’s something that’s going to hurt me… I’d like to get all the breaking done at once.” She said looking at me straight in the eyes, studying me some more. “It’s going to hurt to find out who she is.”
“What?” I asked her.
“You look guilty. Like you did something that you regret. I know that look because…mmmm…it’s the same one that you had the day you came back from Claire’s.” I looked down because I knew I had been beat. “Were you going to tell me?”
“Not today love.”
“Why not?”
“You’ve obviously been through enough for one day and I was not about to add another thing to the list. Besides I didn’t exactly know how to bring it up.”
“Did I do something?” she inhaled sharply.
“No no that’s the last thing I ever wanted to you think. We were just both lonely and worried and she was just kind of there. It was very wrong and I wish more than anything that I could take it back.”
“This isn’t the first time that I’ve heard that” she said as tears started to roll down her face.
“I know I just…”
“Who was it?” she croaked? I inhaled deeply closed my eyes and whispered,
“Annie.”
“My Annie? Like she’s with Harry Annie?”
“That very one I’m afraid.” I said. I hung my head low and we both sat in silence. One thing that I did notice is that she gripped my hand even tighter, like she was afraid to let me go.
