Let me love you

A tale of one direction and the heart ache of a girl who lost everything, well thats what she thought


1. My story

Nina's POV

I haven't cried since he left. Since God took my dad away from this earth. I can still hear his yelps from that night, when flames engulfed his room. It was just him and I that night, mum went out to a meeting. She's an ambassador for youth cancer, she can relate to those kids. She's been in remission since she was 19, mum's had leukaemia since she was my age, sixteen. She was a lucky lady.

Today is the anniversary of dads death. Four years, today is also the day mum goes back to the doctor for her annual check up, just to check out the cancer. She isn't back yet and I'm a little nauseous, I worry a lot. Mostly about my mum. She is now 45 and age hasn't withered her one little bit but I can tell when she's down.

I was busy watching the news about ONE DIRECTION when I heard the door close, I didn't bother getting out of my comfy spot on the couch because I knew it was my mum. I was expecting her to head through the door with a big kiss on her lips waiting for me, but instead I heard her mopey foot steps up the stairs and it was then I got concerned. I ran up to her room and found her lying on the bed with her face smothered in all the brightly coloured pillows, she was crying.

I lay down beside her and kissed the back of her head. "Rough day mum?" I asked. She mumbled what I made out to be a yes and she rolled over, pulling me in to a big hug, "three months the shrink reckons" she cried into my shoulder. I knew exactly what she meant and as a tear slipped down my face I quickly wiped it away. I had to be strong for her, I had to be there for her and not let her see me upset.

I pulled away from our embrace and held her face in my hands. I kissed her forehead and whispered "I'll do anything" she nodded and went on shedding her tears. That night I slept on the couch with her by my side, well more tossed and turned. Doctors can be wrong right!? Maybe she doesn't have the cancer back, and if she did then maybe she still has her whole life ahead of her.

She's all i have left.
