Mute **ON HOLD**

Apryl has never spoken a word ever since her family died in a tragic house fire. Will One Direction's loudest member get her to talk?


7. Why?

Apryl's POV

We've been waiting here at the hospital all night. Amanda fell asleep about an hour ago, but I just can't. I can't fall asleep knowing the closest thing I had to a father could possibly die. Why does this happen to me? Everyone around me gets hurt. I just attract trouble, nothing can ever go right for me.

A moment later a nurse came out holding a clipboard. I looked up hoping she would call for Matthew Ruiz telling us he was okay.

She looked around a bit and her eyes settled on someone from across the room. She smiled walking over to them. I sighed. I just want to know that something can go right for once.

I watched as the nurse talked to the family, probably telling them good news as they looked extremely happy. There was an older woman along with two little kids, a girl and a boy. They looked to be about 8 years old. They probably didn't know what was going on. Then, the womans smile faded and tears fell down her cheeks.

The nurse smiled sadly before leaving them stunned. The woman wasn't moving, she was like frozen. I guess it wasn't good news. The little girl started pulling on her sleeve asking her what had happened. The woman snapped out of her trance and squatted down to their level, probably explaining what was going on.

I looked around seeing many people waiting on news about their hurt or sick loved ones. Everyone looked so sad, so depressed. But then again, this is a hospital. It's not exactly a happy place.

I sighed. Maybe I should get some sleep. It will make the morning come faster. But what if the nurse comes looking for us and we're asleep? I want to know what's going to happen! I need to know if Matt is going to be okay.

In the midst of all my thoughts swarming around, I felt my eyelids get heavy and soon, sleep overcame me.


I woke up, my back and neck aching from sleeping in these uncomfortable chairs. I arched my back, cracking it and stretching my arms out. I looked to my side seeing Amanda still asleep.

I sighed. I really hope Matthew's okay.

I noticed that the family from yesterday was gone, but some of the same people were still here, along with a couple new people. All of these people are in such agony right now, waiting to see if their families are okay.

Just then, a nurse walked out looking down at her clipboard. My eyes widened as she started walking towards us. "Are you the family of Matthew Ruiz?" She asked looking at me. I nodded quickly shaking Amanda so she would wake up.

"What? What's going on? Is Matt alright?" She asked jumping up from her seat. The nurse smiled sympathetically. "Well, he had an emergency surgery last night, as you know. Something had happened with his heart, we think there was a blood clot in his arteries. I'm sorry, but he didn't make it through the surgery."

My jaw dropped. He's dead. Matthew's dead. I can't believe this. How could this be possible!? Why does everyone around me die? What did I do to deserve this?

Tell me god, why did you have to do this to me? Why me? Why?
