Changing the Past

I want to go back and change the past. What I said to Harry Styles in School was all a lie...
My name is Grace Shuatsi and I am 18 years of age. If I told people that I went to School with Harry Styles nobody would believe me. That I was not only friends with him, oh no, I was best friends. The closest friend anyone could have. But something went wrong on the night of the prom... Something which made Harry forget...


19. Changing the Past; Chapter 19; Pulse

A/N- I'm feeling better now! I hope you all enjoy the chapter! I've put in some big action just for new year! Thank you all for reading and I love you all!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3

I sit in bed, in hospital, with my mouth shut. Harry hates me (I think) just because I talked to an old school friend. It's a bit extreme really but I can't change Harry's feelings... Or can I?

( The next day-In the morning)

I wake up in the same bed with the heater turned on full. It's -10 degrees centre grade out side and I've got 5 layers on. Sarah walks into my room.
"Feeling any better?" She asks.
"What d'you mean?" I reply, sleepily. I rub my eyes and sit up. Sarah looks surprised and says,
"Don't you remember last night?" I shake my head. "Well, you fainted and-"
"Oh I know that part. Just tell me the rest when we got home," I interrupt.
"Oh ok... You threw-up three times and collapsed against your bed room door for about 10 seconds. I called the hospital but they said it should be fine. Apparently people always get it after becoming unconscious for more than an hour."
"I was unconscious for an hour?"
"Two actually. Don't you remember?"
"No... Not really." I try to get up but Sarah pushes me back down.
"You shouldn't get up yet. You might collapse again. Just rest and I'll get you a hot chocy and bicy's." She turns and I pull on her arm.
"Can you get me a hot water bottle too, please?" I ask, giving her puppy-dog eyes. She sighs and nods. 5 minutes later, she walks in with everything and sits on my bed.
"Thank you."
"Anything for my bestie," Sarah says and strokes my hair. I find it irritating and push her hand away.
"Yes Hun?"
"Well, first, don't call me Hun," I say and she bites her lip.
"That's ok. But wait a second... Why did I faint?" Her eyes widen and she hangs her head.
"I... I don't know." She's lying, I can tell.
"I can tell you're lying. I've known you for years now, I think I know you when you are speaking truthfully," I say and scratch my head. I fiddle with one of my bracelets on my wrist and look up to find Sarah staring at the ground with a tear in her eye.
"What's wrong?" I ask and she shakes her head.
"It's all gone wrong, Grace. Nothing is on it's right track anymore," Sarah says, still staring at the newly polished floor.
"What is it?" I ask and she sighs. She looks up as a tear falls from her eye.
"Well, I had just gotten in from going food shopping only down at the co-op and I heard a knock at the door. I opened it and found Niall there. He asked where you were and I told him that you were at work and should be back in about an hour. I invited him inside and we sat by the table and talked." She sighs again and fiddles with her nails. I gesture for her to carry on and she shakes her head.
"Oh you know what happens next," she says with pleading eyes.
"No." Sarah looks surprised and blinks slowly.
"Ok then... Well... I don't know. We kind of lost track and leaned in."
"And...?" I say, wondering why she paused.
"He kissed me. I kissed him. We kissed," she whispers and gets up. She quietly leaves the room, leaving me sat on the hospital bed, clueless about what Sarah just said. Then it suddenly all clicks in and I'm startled for a moment but then it turns to anger. I thought Niall like ME? It was ME he kissed. ME who he said that he wanted. Sort of. Actually he never said that. He only kissed me. And that was that. Sarah can have Niall all she wants. But why am I still so angry? Surely she wouldn't go out with him... Was he going out with Cara before? Or was that a stupid lie that fell out her mouth? And one more question. WHY DOES MY LIFE HAVE TO BE SO FLIPPING CONFUSING? My thoughts are interrupted by Harry walking into the room. Ah, he'll take my mind off things. After all, I've got him. But his face in contorted and his lips in a straight line.
"Harry... What's-"
"Niall told me. Everything," he says, standing at the doorway. He can't have? Has he? Would he? Could he? Oh God. I'll just play dumb.
"Told you what, H-Harry?" My voice is shaky from the tense in the room. Everything goes silent until we can only hear the bleeping of my heart, which is surprisingly calm, despite my worried state.
"Everything. Right down to the last word you said. The last look you exchanged. The last kiss you shared." He whispers the last sentence which sends my heart rate high. The green line goes from medium zig-zag to a big zig-zag. It takes up the whole screen and starts to go un-even. I gasp uncontrollably and my muscles start to give random spasms. The last thing I remember is Louis walking into the room, laughing until he sees my body sprawled across the bed, coated in sweat.

Louis' POV

"Haha, very funny Liam. I'm sure she'll be fine," I say, laughing at a stupid thing Liam just said. I walk towards Grace's ward and smile at the nurses passing by. One of them carrying a large tray of food drops it and turns bright pink. Wow, I've never seen anyone do THAT before (who is over the age of 40, by the looks of it). I laugh and help her.
"Oh, sorry. I just... Yeah, I'm a pretty big fan," she says and I laugh.
"It's nice to know we attract people across all ages," I say.
"Wow, Lou. That's the most normal-est thing I've heard you say all day," I hear Niall say behind me. I turn and say,
"Oh haha, very funny. Where are you going?"
"Just going to check up on Grace." He tries to push past me but I place a hand on his chest to stop him.
"No, I'll go see her. Harry was talking to her." His face drops and I see fear in his eyes. He nods sadly and turns away.
"I'll tell you how she is, ok?" I call after him. He nods again and walks away. I sigh and enter Grace's hospital room. She's laying, sprawled across her bed, covered in cold sweat and Harry's sitting next to her, pumping her heart. He leans down to do mouth to mouth and I wonder why for a minute until I see her pulse. It's blank.
