2. Tragedy

Chapter 2

Karla’s P.O.V.

When my older sister Jamie is notified about Mum’s condition she immediately picks me up and drives us to the hospital. The car ride was tense and silent. When we arrive at hospital the doctors check me over to make sure I’m ok even though I try to brush them off and try and find where mum is. We sit there for what seems like days waiting for news on Mums condition. The doctors come out after 8 hours and notify us our mum went into a deep coma after receiving many injuries to the brain and tell us that after falling into the coma Jamie made the choice to have her life support turned off because of the pain it was putting Mum through as she lay in her coma. I sit there for a few minutes taking it all in, I never imagined that I, a 15 year old girl would be put in the situation where in a matter of hours her mother had been murdered with her father being convicted for the crime. I’m alone and have nowhere to go. Mum and I had a plan, were going to move to the city and have a big house and live together and have our own business and now everything is gone in just a moment, it feels unreal, like of all the people in the world this happened to us?  I had to get out of here, I run out of the hospital room not knowing where to go, anywhere but her, away from the real world for just a while.

“Karla, wait!” yells Jamie with desperation, slowing down her pace as she realises she won’t catch up to me.

 I ignore her and just keep running, I can’t stay here it’s not right. I run down the lonely corridors until I’m out, I feel free for the first time in years the fresh breeze against my soft cheeks. I run across the road and the local oval and sit down on the curb and cry, knowing that when I did it would make me realise how real this actually was. I just want to be alone and get a proper grasp on what’s happened. I sit there for who knows how long thinking through the ifs, buts, and whys when suddenly I feel a presence sit beside me. I don’t know who it is but I wouldn’t dare show my face looking the way I am, so I don’t.

“Hey are you alright?” Asks a masculine voice of the Irish tone, I’ve heard that voice before but at the moment I can’t grasp who it is.

“You can talk to me you know, I saw you while I was walking, what’s the matter?” he says in a soothing voice.

I look up and staring at me is Niall Horan. He’s blue eyes lifting my gaze.

“U-um, you were not who I was expecting. I-I’m Karla.

“I know we don’t know each other but if there’s something bothering you, you can talk to me.. I don’t bite.” Niall smirks which makes me giggle quietly.

“Well, a few days ago I was supposed to be moving to the city with my mum, my dad finally out of the picture. Then on the day we were supposed to be leaving he came to the house and got really angry… and hit my mother…” I look down as I say this hearing Niall gasp before I continue.

“My sister then made the decision that her injuries were too critical and chose to, to… get her life support turned off” That’s when I burst into tears and he cradles me in his arms comforting me as I feel a few tears drop onto my head as he stifles silent weeps, Niall stays with me until sunset where he then asks if I needed a place to stay and offers to let me stay at his house while I find a place to say.

“Are you sure? I can find-“Niall places his finger on my lips and says;

“It’s okay…”


Niall’s P.O.V.

I was just]  walking down the street today, happily singing to myself loving the freedom that there were finally no paparazzi and fans following me as they usually are when I walk into a wave of screaming fans. I just wanted to be alone think as I started sprinting down a side street where my car was parked and drove off to a deserted little area out of town, just away from a hospital. I parked into the car park of the hospital and decided to go for a walk and find a local fast food restaurant. As I walk into the most dodgy chip shop and wait for some oily fish and chips on a plastic chair I can’t help but notice girl sitting on the curb just past the hospital. Don’t ask me why but I ditched the chips and went to see if she was alright, to be honest I don’t know why I went over to her but it just felt like the right thing to do. After talking I find out about the tragedy about her mother and offer her a room at my place to stay for a while. We head home together after a few hours grab some McDonalds on the way although I suddenly lose my appetite and so does Karla…
