Right Here, Right Now

"Then I would take that star and make my wish come true."
~
My name is Olivia Carsons, and the past week has been pretty crazy for me. I met my favorite boy band, One Direction, I started dating Niall, and, well, too much happened. Even the worst thing, us finding out that my foster mother has cancer, has happened. But there is one thing that I fear. Niall and Louis, my childhood friend, still don't know that I promised to go with them to the Canfield Fair. If this can get any worse, what will happen if they find out? Does Louis have feelings for me? Do I have feelings for both of them? It all depends on what happens at the fair. (Second installment of The Start of Something New trilogy)

26. Moments

The light shines in my face, waking me up. I remember my night with Annita. How the doctors were going to turn off her life support today. I wish I was there beside her. She seemed so nice.

My door opens and in comes one of the doctors. "Ms. Carsons, would you like to come with me?" She asks.

I carefully sit up. "Why?" I ask.

"Some visitors of Mrs. Clifton want you with them." She answers, guiding me out of bed and into the halls. We walk into the room I was in last night. The woman lets go of me and I balance myself on my wheely thing. There were people in there that I remember. They saw me yesterday, when I woke up. The man, who must be Jake, takes my arm and guides me to Annita's bed.

"Hi." I say trying my best to act like I wasn't here yesterday.

"Hi, Liv." Annita replied weakly.

"We wanted you here with us when this happens." A girl with brown-black hair and blue eyes says to me. "And I'm Alexa if you still don't remember me."

"What is it?" I ask.

Everyone was silent, and then a boy with blonde hair and green eyes answers with a sigh and a bit of tears, "The doctors are turning off Annita's life support. She is going to die soon. And I'm Austin."

I start to shed a few tears, too. I wish she could just live forever, like in those movies. I feel a hand on my shoulders. I look up and see a boy, roughly my age, with blonde hair and blue eyes. I vaguely remember him. All I know is that his name is Niall. "Don't worry Livvy." He tells me.

Behind him were four more boys. One with a blondish-mostly brown quiff and brown eyes. Another with a black quiff with a blonde streak and brown eyes. A third with a brown side-do and blue eyes. And a fourth with really curly hair and green eyes.

I look back at Annita, who looks really weak. Then something hits me. It's a song. I remember all of the lyrics, I think. I start to sing to her just before they shut everything down.

"Shut the doors, turn the lights off. I wanna be with you, I wanna feel your love. I wanna lay beside you. I cannot hide this, even though I try."

I was joined by Alexa. "Hearts beat harder, time escapes me. Trembling hands touch skin, it makes this hard girl. And the tears stream down my face."

Austin joins too. "If we could only have this life for one more day. If we could only turn back time. You know I'll be your life, your voice, your reason to be my love, my heart is breathing for this moment in time I'll find the words to say. Before you leave me today."

Niall comes in. "Close the door, throw the keys. Don't wanna be reminded don't wanna be seen."

The one with the black quiff, I think his name's Zayn, also joins. "Don't wanna be without you. My judgement is clouded like tonight's sky."

The brown side-do, Louis I think, comes. "Undecided voice is numb. Try to scream out my lungs but it makes this harder. And the tears stream down my face." There are tears streaming down everyone's faces. 

Curly, must be Harry, starts. "If we could only have this life for one more day. If we could only turn back time. You know I'll be your life, your voice, your reason to be my love, my heart is breathing for this moment in time I'll find the words to say before you leave me today."

Then Liam, the blonde-mostly brown quiff, joins. "Flashes left in my mind. Going back to the time playing games in the streets, kicking balls with my feets, dancing on with my toes, standing close to the edge, there's a part of my clothes at the edge of your bed. As I feel myself fall, make a joke of it all."

Last but not least, Jake joins to help us finish the song. "You know I'll be your life, your voice, your reason to be my love, my heart, is breathing for this moment in time I'll find the words to say before you leave me today."

We finish, and begin to hear just a toned beep. We look at the heart monitor. The line was straight. That was the end.

The end of Annita Clifton.

The doctor comes in, unplugs all of the wires, and pulls the fabric over her head. Everyone leaves with tears and the nurse walks me back to my room.

"Mr. Clifton is outside filling out the release papers. You're allowed to leave as soon as we get them approved and we take all of the tubes off of you. Just this time, Ms. Carsons, be careful. Hope the rest of your summer is okay." She tells me deattaching my tubes from me. I could breathe just fine now.

Let's just hope I get my memory back before school.

 

*Author's note*
