Far Too Soon

When Abigail (Abbie) Aherne loses her parents in a car crash when she is 11, her brother Chris says he'll take care of her till the day he dies. But what happens when the day her brother spoke about comes far too soon? Oh and did I mention her best friend is Niall Horan from One Direction?


2. Chapter One


-Chapter One- 

*6 Years Later*

Chris became my legal guardian. We had lived happily for 5 years. Niall and I stayed close. Maybe got even closer. If that was possible. But once he left for x factor, we didn't talk as much. He was too busy building a career. So I couldn't find the courage to tell him what had happened a month after he left. And it was now a year later. And things are so bad now. But Niall's coming home for a while. He's coming home tomorrow. And I can't wait to see him after a year. I have to figure out how I'm going to tell him. He's going to find out on his own if I don't tell him as quickly as possible. Once he gets back to Mullingar, I am telling him.

-The Next Day-

"ABS!" Niall yelled to me as I opened my front door.

"NIALL!" I screamed as I pulled him into a hug.

"I can't believe you're back! Not to be a downer Nialler, but we need to talk. Can we go outside?"

"Sure Abs. What's wrong?" he said looking confused and worried.

"Nialler, it's about Chris. We found about a month after you left but I couldn't tell you. I couldn't get you upset and now it's worse and I don't know what to do an-"

"Abs what's wrong? I'm getting scared."

"Niall. Chris... Has.. A.." that's all I managed to get out before I started sobbing. He pulled me into a hug before saying, 

"Abs you can tell me. Shhh. It's gonna be okay love."

"Niall. Chris has a brain tumor. We found out a month after you left. He's been getting worse and we don't know how much longer he has." I managed to get out before crying my eyes out into his chest. He looked shocked, sad, and as if he were about to cry.  

"Why didn't they just remove the tumor?" he asked trying to hold back tears.  

"They can't. The tumor is in a spot where if they operated he would end up brain dead. They can't do anything about it. He's been getting weaker and weaker for the past year. I knew you had to be with your band so I didn't tell you. I'm so sorry I haven't told you Nialler. I feel so horrible. God I'm the worst best friend ever." I said looking at the ground. But when I looked up at him he was looking at his lap. And I noticed the tears falling down his face.  

"Abs You aren't the worst best friend ever. Come here. " he said pulling me back into his chest. "Can I see him? Like is he well enough to talk?" he asked cautiously.  

"Yeah. He's in his old room. There's no point in him staying at a hospital. They can't do anything. Let's go" I said grabbing his hand.  

"Hey Chris" Niall said to Chris as we reached his room. Niall's face went pale as he saw Chris. I can't blame him. Chris is so frail. And weak. It pains me everyday to see my big brother like that. I can't stand the thought of losing him.  

"Hey! Nialler! How are you buddy?" 

"Good! My band and I got third on x factor. I'm here for a couple months to catch up at home. Then I have to move to London to do things with the band. " Niall told Chris. Now it was my turn to go pale. I ran to my room and sat on my bed. No. This can't be happening. First my parents. Now Chris is slowly leaving me. I can't lose Nialler. He's the only person I have left. I started bawling my eyes out yet again. Just then I felt two strog arms wrap around me.  

"Shh Abs what's whats wrong love?" 

"I lost my parents. Now I'm losing Chris. I can't lose my best friend too." I managed to get out before I started sobbing again. Niall laid me down in my bed and layed next to me singing while I fell asleep. When I woke up it was dark. And Niall was still next to me. With his arm around me. He stayed with me. He actually stayed with me. I thought before drifting back into sleep.

I was jolted awake by Niall yelling.  

"ABBIE COME HERE QUICK. ABBIE!! IT'S CHRIS!" then I heard mumbling as I saw him on his phone as I sprinted down the stairs frantically.  

"Abs Chris collapsed. I found him in the kitchen and he wasn't breathing. I just called the paramedics but I don't what's going to happen." I backed into a wall and slumped down to the floor. 

"No. I can't lose him. I can't." I muttered to myself as tears streamed down my face. I felt Niall wrap his arms around me as paramedics carried my unconscious brother out of the house.  

"Nialler can we follow them? Please?"  

"Of course love." he said throwing me one of his hoodies to put on over my tanktop and shorts and grabbing his keys as I followed him out the door to the hospital.
