Truly, Madly Deeply

'I hate you Harry Styles...'

2 years after finishing school and being tormented by Harry Styles, Ellie Laker finally gets accepted into a presigious performing arts academy in London. This was everything she had ever wanted, but she knows that it is probably too good to last...


20. Hospitals

Harry's P.O.V

My world slipped in and out of focus. Ellie, lying on her hospital bed, her chest occasionally lifting with every shallow breath. I had been sitting here for six hours. Sitting. Waiting. There were multiple cords attached to her body, and a oxygen mask was fitted on her mouth. But she stayed unconsious, and nothing was changing.

Her mum had come in, and stayed with me, although neither of us talked much, Ellie was the first thing on our minds. Her dad apparently was in America for his work, but he was notified of what happened.

I balled up hands into tight fists. I was so angry. Angry at Callum, for doing that to her, if it wasn't for him, she probably wouldn't be in this position right now. I was angry at myself, for not protecting her, or for not getting there fast enough. I looked at her, and my vision started to blur. I felt a warm tear slowly slide down my face. And another. And another until I couldn't see at all.


It was nearly midnight by the time her mother had left, needing to take care of her other children. She gave me a small smile and left the room with red eyes. Callum had not come in once, and the thought just stimulated my anger towards him even more. I felt my phone vibrating, with Paul coming up as the caller id. I just declined the call and turned back to look at Ellie.

I didn't care about management. I didn't care about the paparazzi having a field day over my whereabouts, I was going to stay with Ellie, until, or if she ever wakes up. Suddenly, the door opened and Mikeala and the boys came quietly inside. I just looked up at them, and I could feel the tears coming again. It was the first time I had seen them since the accident.

Mikaela had a look of complete horror as she spotted Ellie. Louis and Niall came and sat by my side. 'Mate, what happened? We would've gotten here sooner but management had put us on a leash since you disappeared.'

My voice came out croaky and broken. 'The car...Ellie was on the footpath and kn-- kneeling so the driver...the driver must not have seen he-- was after an argument with Callum...I should've come sooner...' My voice broke. I wouldn't be able to live with myself if she didn't wake up. I had already ruined seven years of her life, and now I was the one to completely end it.

Ellie's P.O.V

Light. Dark. Swirling circles and patterns interuppted my vision. Is this dying? I felt a sharp pain in my left leg and my head was pounding. I felt like I was being pressed down by a huge wave. There was a dull sound in my ear and I couldn't move my arms or legs. Everytime I tried to surface from the pressure, I would get pushed back down.

I tried again, but it wouldn't work. I could vaguely hear voices through the water. One of those voices seemed desperately sad. I needed to reach them. I tried to surface, but I couldn't. My brain was becoming tired from the effort. It would just be easier to sink. Painless. But I couldn't. Mustering all my strength, I jerked upwards, and I broke the water.

My eyelids blinked open, and the bright light blinded me. I could see shadows at the foot of the ...bed? I slowly looked around and saw white. White walls and bedsheets and floors. I tried to make a sound but my lips were cracked.

'Ha---r----r...' My voice was barely audible, uneven and shallow.

The shadows suddenly whipped around. I saw Harry. He looked horrible, eyes bloodshot and curls mishapen, but I still felt a small smile come to my lips at the sight of him.

'Ell, Ellie!' He rushed to my side, with watery eyes, and I tried to lift my hand to wipe them away, but a cord stopped me.

'Nurse? Nurse!' Liam yelled down the corridor. 'She's awake!'

I heard a lot of shouts outside the door and heard wheels being quickly rolled along the floor. I was tired. I didn't want many more visitors. The nurses started fussing about me and looking at record sheets, and at monitor screens. I just looked over at my friends, and smiled.

'Is she going to be ok?' I heard Harry and Mikaela ask one of the nurses.

'You were very lucky sir. We are able to help stabilize her and help her now she is awake.'

He rushed to my side. 'You're gonna be ok El. You're ok.' I lifted my hand slightly and he held it. I just smiled at him. I needed him now, and he was here, with me.


I woke up to see Harry, Mikaela and the rest of the lads, sleeping. Mikaela was the only one awake. 'You're still here?' I croaked.

She blinked furiously, as if blinking back tears and smiled. 'Of course.' She came over to my bed. 'We were all so worried about you Ellie. We thought we had lost you. Harry was the worst. He's been here ever since you were taken by the ambulance.'

Something inside my brain seemed lost. 'What happened to me?'

Mikaela just looked at me. 'You were hit by a car Ellie. You were on the footpath, and the driver mustn't have seen you because you were bent over. They tried to turn a corner, but drove too far over the footpath, right over the top of you. They were really, really sorry. They feel so so bad, I think they sent you those flowers over there.'

I tilted my head to the left to see flowers, balloons and gifts on the table. 'Why was I on the footpath?'

Mikaela hesitated before answering me. 'Well you were outside with Callum. He-- well...'

But the name had clicked something inside my mind. 'Mikaela! I'm supposed to be with him, a lunch, sorting things out. What's the time?' I made to get out of bed but Mikaela held me down.

'It's 6 in the morning. You're not going anywhere ok? You need to heal and be under constant watch from the nurses.' She told me firmly.

'But if I don't go, he's gonna be mad Mikaela. I wanted us to work out.'

'Shh...' She whispered. 'It's ok, I'll talk to him..'

'You will? Thankyou.' I leant my head back on the pillow and fell asleep.


I opened my eyes again to see Harry sitting by my bed. I smiled. 'Hey...don't you need to be back at the school?'

He looked at me and swept some of my hair away from my face and tucked it behind my ear. 'Ellie I'm not leaving you. I've done it once before, I will never do it again.'

'Why would you care that much?' I asked him.

And then he leant down. And he pressed his lips against mine. Gently. 'Because I love you.'
