25. Bella

Harry's Pov

One by one, she says good-bye to the friends she's made and the nurses she been friendly with. I watch her with a small smile on my face, but can't help noticing how broken she looks. She tries to hide it, and actually does a fairly good job of it, but I know her. I can see the shattered pieces of everything she knew in her eyes and her movements. Everything shes believed for years has been stripped away from her, and she now has to come to turns with a cold, unforgiving truth.

One I have to learn to deal with myself.

She bounces over to a small girl who can't be much older then five. They embrace and the little girl is on the verge of tears when they pull away. Maddie bends down and whispers something in her ear and she lights up, saying something to Maddie that I can't quite make out.

Maddie nods her head and grabs her hand, giggling, and skips over to where I'm standing.

"Harry, I want you to meet my friend, Bella."

"Hello, Bella!"

Bella grabs Maddie's hand in a panic and freezes, not knowing what to do. Is she alright? I've seen a few fans do this to Niall and Zayn, but I've never had it happen. What am I supposed to do?

I crouch down in front of her and place my hands on her waist. She squeezes Maddie's hand tighter.

"Bella, can I ask you a question?"

She nods her head cautiously.

"Can I have a picture with you? You're a very pretty girl and they boys won't believe I met such pretty girl with out a picture!"

A smile spreads across her face as she giggles, relaxing her grip. She nods her head again, this time more excited. I stand up and pull out my mobile, handing it to Maddie.

"Here, love. Take a picture of us before the boys come and try to steal her away from me!"

Maddie leans in and takes my phone with a warm smile on her face. I squat down next to Bella and wrap my arm around her. She leans in and gives me a hug, which I graciously return. I love kids so much. They're so cute, especially baby Lux.

Just as Maddie snaps the picture, she plants a kiss on my cheek and they boys come into the room. I stand up, in a fake startle, and try to hide Bella from the boys. I told her they can't have her!

"What are you doing, mate?" Niall asks, trying to peer behind me.

No way is he going to her. I crouch down again and pull Bella toward me so I can whisper in her ear.

"Listen, love. Have you ever played monsters?'

She nods her head, already giggling.

"Ok, well. All those boys over there are big, fat monsters. Especially the one with blonde hair. We've got to kill the monsters, right? On three, we're going to run out and get the monsters, ok?"

She grabs my hand and we get ready to take charge. These boys are going down.

"One.. Two.. THREE!"

We both take off. She goes straigh for Niall, yelling 'kill the monsters' and tries jumping on his back. I on the other hand, head for Zayn and manage to wrangle him to the ground. The whole room turns to chaos, as the boys figure out whats going on. Bella shrieks in laughter as Niall piggy backs her over to Louis. I try and deal with Liam and Zayn who nearly have me pinned.

"Are you getting the monsters, Bella?"

"I've got them, Harry! I've got them!!"

She pushes Niall, who falls to the ground dramatically and pretends to be dead. Louis's next as they wrestle each other on the couch. Just as Bella and I were about win and kill all the monsters, an older nurse comes in and tells us playtime is over. It's time for Bella to go eat lunch.

Aw, damn. I was having fun. She runs toward me and grabs my hand, pulling me toward the cafeteria. I look at the nurse, to make sure it's ok and she slightly nods her head.

"Harry, wait up!"

I stop for a minute to wait for Maddie as Bella impatiently pulls at my hand. She's a very strong little girl. She catches up and grabs Bella's other hand.

"Hungry, babe?"


Bella and I both answer at the same time and Maddie laughs. Bella giggles and I even chuckle my self. I guess she was talking to Bella, not me. Whoops.

We make our way through the cafeteria line, Maddie and I taking turns holding Bella's plate for her. We all end up with a chicken sandwich, peaches, milk, and Maddie threw a small salad on her plate. I spot a table over by the corner and drag the girls to it.

Lunch is spent laughing and hardly eating as we entertain Bella. I wonder what's wrong with her. She seems like a perfectly fine little girl that should be out playing with friends, not locked up in a mental ward of a hospital. I'll have to ask Maddie later.

We spend another hour playing with the boys after lunch before the nurse comes in and tells us it's time for Bella's therapy. She runs up to me and wraps her fragile arms around me.

"I don't wanna go, Harry."

"Aw, love. I know you don't, but you have to."

The nurse comes over and tries to ply Bella off me impatiently. I start to get annoyed when Bella yells ouch at the nurses tight grip on her wrist.

"Hey! She's a kid. Let her say good-bye to us."

The nurse sternly raises an eyebrow, but lets go of Bella.

"You have five minuets, Isabella."

She runs straight to Maddie and hides behind her, not wanting to leave. Maddie heaves her up and walks over to me on the couch, handing her to me.

"Bell, I've got to go honey."

"Why?! You said we could be friends!" Bella whines, close to tears again.

"Bella! We are friends! Look at all the friends you made today! I'm so proud of you!"

Bella looks around at the boys and their girlfriends, and despite Maddie's efforts of cheering her up, she's still upset.

"You're never going to come back and then we can't be friends" she pouts.

"Bella!" I almost shout.

"We're going to come back at least once a week to see you! And here.."

I pull out a piece of paper and grab the pen off the little table. Scribbling down my mobile number, I hand it over to her.

"Call me whenever you get sad, okay? I'll try to make it over so we can play."

Her face lights up and I feel warm inside. This little girl is so sweet. I feel so bad for her having to be in here.

"Isabella. Times up. Let's go."

The nurse stomps over and roughly grabs her wrist, dragging away.

"Bye, Bella! I'll be back soon, okay? I love you!"

She looks back at Maddie miserably, one tear escaping her warm chocolate eyes. Poor girl. I'll have to come visit her soon. I'll bring they boys to. She seemed to take a liking to them.

"Why is she in here?"

Maddie turns toward me and explains her story.

"Well, she's super autistic for one. Like, she only ever talks to two people in here. Me and her doctor. Not any of the nurses, or other patients. It's amazing that she talked and played with you like she did. She's never ever done that."

"Really? She must of liked me or something.." I say, smiling. I guess everyone was telling the truth when they said I was good with kids.

"But, just because she's autistic doesn't mean she's crazy."

"Her parent's can't afford to keep her in their house, but refuse to give her up for adoption, so she's stuck here. Her parent's haven't seen her in three months, Harry. It's awful."

Three months? How can you not see your kid for three months? That's ridiculous. This poor girl, stuck in here because her parent's are selfish and refuse to give her the life she deserves.

"Anyway, we should go before she gets out. Ready?"

I stand up and grab her hand.
