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?


1. Prologue



It was a normal day. Mum and dad were taking my brother Chris and I to the mall. Chris and I were arguing like brothers and sisters do. When all of the sudden I heard my mother scream. That's when everything went black.





'God what is that beeping' I wonder as I open my eyes. Wait. Why am I in a hospital? What happened? Why is my arm in a cast? Where are mum and dad?

"Abbie?? Are you awake??" I hear my brother Chris say

"Chris where are mum and dad? And why is my arm in a cast? And why am I in here? And why is your face all scratched up? Why do you look like you've been crying?" I ask letting out all my questions as I looked up at his red, puffy eyes.

"Abs I don't know how to explain this. While mum and dad were driving us to the mall, we were hit head on by a drunk driver. I only got a few scrapes. You broke your arm. You're here because they want to make sure you're stable before they send you home." he explained, his voice shaky. Okay that answers why I'm here and what happened. My 11 year old brain can't process this all right now. But why is his voice shaky? Whats wrong? And where are mum and dad? 

"Okay... But where are mum and dad?" 

"Abs. I don't know how to say this-" he started as he began to cry. Chris never cries. Something is seriously wrong. It takes a lot to make an 18 year old guy cry.  

"Abs. Mum and dad were killed on impact." he couldn't control it anymore. He burst into tears.  

"No. No. No. NO. Mum and dad can't be dead Chris! They can't!" 

"Abs. Come here" he said as he hugged me. I needed the comfort of my brother right now. I couldn't hold it back anymore. I gave in as my body was shaking with sobs.  

"It's okay Abs. I'm gonna take care of you. I will not let anything happen to you."

I was let out later that day. The first thing I did when I got home? Ran next door sobbing. I needed my best friend. I frantically knocked the door. Niall answered. Thank goodness. I needed to talk to him. My best friend since I was two. He was the only person I could talk to right no.

"Hey Ab- Abbie what's wrong??" he asked as he pulled me into a hug.  

"Niall... My parents... They... Died..." 

I said in between sobs.  

"What?? How?? Shh. Abs. It's okay. I'm here. Talk whenever you can" he said trying to calm me down.  

I told him. I looked up as I finished and his face was shocked. My house was like his second home. He was like An unofficial child to my parents. We had been inseparable since we were two. His mom came in. Obviously Chris had told her.  

"Abigail. I am so sorry for your loss. You and Chris are always welcome here honey. Come here." she said as she pulled me into a hug.  

"Thanks Mrs. Horan. Can I stay here tonight? I don't know if I can sleep there tonight knowing my parents were just there this morning."  

"Of course honey! Do you want Niall to go with you to help you get your things? Also, does Chris want to stay here?"  

"If you want to Nialler. You don't have to if you don't want to. And I'll ask him Mrs. Horan. He may just want to be alone right now. " 

"Okay sweetie. You and Niall can go get your things." 

As we walked into my house I saw Chris. I'd never seen him like this. I was genuinely worried.  

"Chris?" I asked him nervously, not knowing how he'd react.  

"Yeah, Abs?" he said his normally confident voice now croaky.  

"Mrs. Horan wants to know if you want to stay at their house. I am. I can't be here knowing that mum and dad were here just this morning. We're getting my things. Do you want to come?" 

"Sure. Let's get our things." 

"I'll go tell my mom. Be right back guys!" Niall said as he ran to his house.  

"We can do it Abs. We're strong. I will take care of you until the day I die." Chris said to me as he pulled me into a hug.  

Little did I know that day would come far too soon.
