8. One Hundred Sleepless Nights

 

OKAY! I'm back and ready to write! Gosh, I'm terrible at updating and I always keep promising chapters and the never do an update, but tonight I will try my hardest to bring you at least two new chapters this week! I'm not promising, but I'm going to try as hard as I can. So here we go! 

 

~~~~~~~~~~

 

Liam's POV

 

It's almost 1:30 AM now and none of us have heard a word from Lena. "Guys, calm down. Her and Tate may have just lost track of time!" Harry was trying to downplay the whole situation, but I knew on the inside he was worrying. "Let's just go look for her." Lou spoke up. We all nodded in agreement and split up. Harry and Zayn took off one way, while Niall and I went the other. Harry told Louis to stay back incase Lena came home.

 

"So, where should we start looking first?" I asked to break the silence. Niall shrugged, "Well, Harry and Zayn went to Tate's house. Do you wanna have a look at the restaurant they went to? Maybe a waiter could tell us which way they took off." I agreed and we headed to some little 24/7 place called Mickey's Kitchen. The hostess said she saw the two 'lover birds' heading towards Sunset Hill. My stomach tightened. I've only heard bad things about that place.

        We headed out towards the spot, but when we got there the whole place was deserted. No one in sight. "Lena?!" Niall shouted. We split up looking around the area. "Lena?" I asked, expecting no answer. There was a rustle in the brush near the edge of the hill. "Lena is that you?" I asked, stepping a bit closer towards where the sound came from. "Lena?" I asked once more. 

 

"Liam?" The faintest whisper called out. I stepped through the brush and I felt the involuntary tears slip down my face. Lena was laying on the ground, bruises were forming on her face. I dropped onto my knees and gently pulled her head onto my lap. Removing the strands of hair that were plastered to my face I asked in a shaky voice, "Did Tate do this?". The anger was boiling inside of me. Who could do this to such an innocent girl. "Niall! Over here!" I yelled out. "Did you find her?" Niall's voice came. He stepped through the brush and gasped. "Did T-" I held up my hand. "We'll take care of him later, let's get Lena to the hospital." I slid my arms around her and picked her up. 

        We walked back to the car and I laid Lena across the back seat. Niall sat with her, while I drove towards the hospital. I heard Niall in the back cooing and calming Lena down. "Liam, her breathing is shallow." Niall sounded like a lost child, who was confused. I looked back at him and he was crying. "Niall keep it together, for Lena. Call the others and let them know where we're heading." I told him. 

 

About ten minutes later, Lena was admitted into the hospital. Anne and Lou get here faster than we did. Anne had tears streaming down her face, and Lou was yelling at everyone in the place to get help. The security had to calm him down. Harry and Zayn haven't been heard from, and they weren't answering their phones. 

 

Niall's POV

 

Come on Harry. Pick up. Pick up. Pick up.

 

"I'm sorry but the number you are trying to reach is un-" I clicked 'end call' for the hundredth time that night.

 

I decided to try just one more time. I hit dial again.

 

After three rings I heard an out of breath voice, "Hello?". "Zayn is that you? Where are you?" I asked. "We found Tate. He went off talking smack about Lena, and we chased him for two. I don't think he'll be around any more." I heard Harry laugh in the background. "Oh hey, did you find Lena yet?" Harry called out. "Yeah, we're here at the hospital." I said quietly. "You said you're were?" Zayn spoke up a bit.

        "The hospital Zayn, we're at the hospital." I said again in a stronger tone. "They're at the hospital." Zayn passed on to Harry. I heard a slight snatching sound, "What's wrong?" Harry's low voice filled my ear with panic. "It's Lena," I said, "Tate messed her up real bad. We don't know any details. Liam found her all beat up in a bush on Sunset Hill. " I explained to him all I knew. "We'll be there in five." Harry's voice was lower, in a growl like tone. Then I heard a click and knew he was gone... 

 

Lena's POV

 

Beep..

 

Beep..

 

Beep..

 

Uhg, my head hurt like crazy. I opened my eyes to a dimly lit room. The recolation of what happened last night and my date with Tate still clearly in my mind. I can't believe he'd just leave me on the side of the road. After what he did....I just hope the boys don't find out. Speak of the devil..

"Lena!" Harry was the first one thought the door. He pulled me into a hug, and I felt the warm tears roll down my cheeks. "I'm gonna kill that bastard. You hear me?" Harry pulled me back and looked me in the eyes. "Harry, don't waste your time. Just leave him alone and let the cops deal with it." I said.

        "Hey guys." I said softly, acknowledging the others. I let my eyes fall upon each of them, stopping short when reaching Niall and Liam. Their eyes were hollow and the bags from a sleepless night were apparent. I nodded in a silent thank you to the two for finding me. "Where's Anne?" I asked. "She went home a while ago to pack you a bag with some clothes and stuff. She'll be back later." Zayn told me. The was a knock at the door, when a petite woman stood. "I see you're up Ms. Waters," The young woman smiled at me sympathetically. "Do you want the good news or bad news first?" She sighed. "There's bad news?" I gulped. She nodded. "The good please." Harry answered for me. "Well good news is there's no internal bleeding, your attacker didn't cause any long term physical damage." I smiled a bit relieved. "What about the bad news?" I asked a bit nervous. "Well, the bad news is.." She took a long breath, "Do you know what a malignant tumor is?" She asked. 

        "Malignant," I asked, "No can't say that I do." I shook my head. "Well malignancy is the tendency of a medical condition, especially tumors, to become progressively worse." The doctor explained. "Tumors ma'am?" Louis spoke up. "Like cancer?" Zayn spoke up. The doctor nodded and turned to me. "It seems you've had the tumor for a good couple of months." 

 

"But my doctor who took care of me after the car crash didn't say anything." I said confused. "It was probably too small to detect. But it's grow a bit. We've talked to your aunt, and we've scheduled to have it removed next week." She patted my arm and smiled at the boys, leaving us to ourselves. "Oh Lena don't cry." Zayn came over to comfort me along with Lou. I hadn't even realized I was. "Yeah babe, the Doc said they were gonna take care of it." Harry cooed while rubbing my hand. I took a shaky breath and smiled. 

        "Guys? Can I talk to Liam and Niall alone for a moment?" I asked quietly. Harry nodded and got up to leave, Louis and Zayn trailing behind. "Look, I just wanted to thank you for finding me. I've put all of you through a lot of shit, and you didn't deserve any of it." I laughed. The both kind of chuckled but the sadness in their eyes was still there.  "Liam, I don't wanna be mad at you anymore." I said, looking down and teetering my fingers. I saw him perk up out of the corner of my eye. "But I just want to be friends for now." I looked up and gave those pair of brown eyes a sad smile. "And Niall?" I looked over to the Irish lad that had been there for me these past few weeks. "I know you like me,....and I think I like you too somewhere inside me, but after the more recent events...I'm not looking for any kind of relationship. I hope you both are okay with that." I looked down. 

        

"I'm fine with that Princess." Niall sighed and smiled at me. "Me too. We both understand." Liam gave a genuine smile. I smiled and I swore it reached my ears. I had my friends back and that's all that mattered to me now. 

 

"Lena?" Harry poked his head in the room, "The cops are here, are you okay to make your statement?" 

 

"Yeah, send them in." I sighed and prepared myself for reliving the past 24 traumatic hours again.
