Moments

"Moments in time I'll find the words to say before you leave me today...." He sang softly in my ear as I drifted into an endless dream.

Chapter 5:

Louis' POV

I can't believe that this was happening! Why would she go and do something when she knew she was sick!? I ran my hands through my hair while standing in the lobby of the hospital. I was so worried about my little Aub. I understand she wanted to go back to dance, but it was not the smart thing to do! I know I'm not Mr. Compromise, but still!

" Are you here for Ms. Smith?", a nurse asked me. My head shot up to her. I couldn't speak, so I just nodded my head quickly. " This way", she lead me through the halls. " Right in here, please be quiet she's sleeping. Her mother should be in there though". I nodded and thanked her before walking in. I saw poor little Aub laying in the hospital bed sleeping. I then turned my head to see Mrs. Smith sitting quietly on the chair in the corner of the room.

She must have heard me because she looked up at me. " Hi Louis", she tried to smile, but failed. " Hey Mrs. Smith. Thanks for giving me a call, I really appreciate it", I smiled sadly. She just nodded before letting her head fall back into her hands. I can only imagine what's shes going through right now. I walked over to the side of the hospital bed. I ran my fingers through Aubrey's beautiful brown hair. I pulled a chair over and sat down next to her. She doesn't deserve this, no one does. I continued to run my fingers through her hair. Then the door opened. Both Mrs. Smith's and I's head looked to see the doctor standing there. " So is she ok?", I ask. " I think we should wait for her to wake up", he said in a slow tone.

As if on cue Aubrey stirred in her sleep, her eyes began to flutter open. I looked down at her and smiled sadly, " Hello beautiful". She looked around confused. Obviously she didn't know where she was. " Wher...", she stopped mid sentence when she saw the doctor, " Dr. Channing? What's going on?". The doctor sighed before looking at Mrs. Smith, then to me, then finally at Aubrey. " Well Aubrey, do you remember how I said that this could be serious?", he started off. Aubrey nodded. I looked at her confused.

" It could've been serious?", I asked shocked. Why hadn't she told me? Aubrey ignored me and nodded to the doctor. " Well... The tests came back, and I'm afraid that I was right. You seem to be diagnosed with a type of rare cancer, and I'm sorry to say that it is to far along to cure...", the doctor trailed off. My heart stopped. I grabbed onto Aubrey's hand not wanting to let go. Mrs. Smith sat up, the color draining from her face.

" S-So you're saying, I'm gonna d-die?", Aubrey stuttered out. I could almost feel the tears starting to flow. Just hearing her saying those words made me become heartbroken. " Sadly, yes I'm afraid. Aubrey I'm so sorry...", he stopped again. I was shaking. There had to be more, he was holding something back from us. " What else is there?", I asked with bitterness in my voice. The room went silent for a few moments.

" She doesn't have much time left, two months max". I almost fell over, I had to sit down before I collapsed. Aubrey's grip on my hand tightened. This isn't happening, it can't be. I heard crying from my left. I saw Aubrey with tears streaming down her face. Her mum wasn't that much better, she was crying harder then Aubrey. I had to be strong for her though, I couldn't cry. Even though I wanted to, I just couldn't.

" Aubrey, the best thing to do is make sure you do everything you wanted to do in life. Make sure you are happy ok?", the doctor said while walking to the door. I just don't understand how this could be happening. Aubrey was shaking from crying yet managed a nod. He nodded before leaving the room. I didn't let go of Aub's hand, I didn't want to let her go. Not ever.


Aubrey's POV

This can't be happening! I'm only 19! I can't be dying! All my frustrations came out in tears, they wouldn't stop streaming out of my eyes. Thank god I had Louis' hand to hold on to. " Shh it's ok", Lou tried to sooth me. How can this be ok?! It can't be! I'm gonna die and we can't do anything about it. I looked up into Louis' beautiful blue green eyes, it seemed to calm me down a bit. " Lou I'm gonna die", I choked up. He closed his eyes, and then opened them, as if he was holding in tears. It broke my heart to see him like this. All because of me.

" Aubrey why didn't you tell me?", he said softly. " Tell you what?", I asked. He sighed, " You know! About it being serious!", his voice was rising. I looked at my mum motioning her to leave the room. She nodded and left. I turned my attention back to Louis. " Because I didn't want you to worry about me", I said quietly. " You should have told me! God dammit Aubrey! I've been worried sick about you, you could have at least called!", he ran his fingers through his hair.

I felt like shit now for not calling. I just didn't want to bother him, he was always so busy. " I didn't want to bother you!", my voice was beginning to rise as well. He looked back at me, with what looked like anger in his eyes. " You wouldn't have bothered me! I've been waiting for you to call! I honestly thought you were ignoring me! Then the first time I hear from you, wait no your mother, you're in the hospital! How do you think that makes me feel Aub!". I've never seen him like this, ever. I let my head fall into my hands, I was scared and Louis wasn't making it any better. I started crying again, sobbing actually. " I'm sorry!", I sobbed into my hands.

I heard Lou take deep breaths before placing his hand on my lap. " Aubrey don't cry please", Louis said. I tried to calm down, but there was to much on my mind. Nothing seemed to work. I felt Louis take my hands away from my face, before he wiped my tears away. " Please", he tried to smile, but failing. I stared into his eyes, the calm feeling returning to my body.

I grabbed his head gently and pulled him towards me. Louis seemed like the only thing keeping me sane right now. When our lips met, my body went numb. I always felt this way when Louis and I kissed. I really, really cared about him. I pulled away, letting my head rest on the pillow behind me.

" You should get some rest babe. I'll let you sleep", he said with some pain in his voice. " Alright. Promise you'll be here tomorrow?", my voice still sounded weak. He turned around to look at me. " Of course, I wouldn't miss it for the world. Night love", his eyes were glossy. He was then gone.

A few minutes later my mum came back in. She was still crying. " Mum it will be okay, I want you to go home and get some rest okay?", I tried to sound as calm as possible for my mum's sake. She nodded and kisses me on the forehead. " Love you honey", she stuttered out. " Love you too". Then she was gone as well.

I laid my head back on the pillow again. I need some rest, I closed my eyes. My mind was racing a million miles an hour. Thankfully, they calmed down just enough for me to fall asleep. The last thing that went through my mind is......
