8. What?

Chapter 8




I woke up to the sound of faint laughter from downstairs. I searched the room trying to remember where I was until it clicked, Louis. I swung my legs over the edge of the plush bed and wobbled to the staircase. I walked down the steps slowly and popped my head from behind the wall to catch a glimpse of what was so funny. Louis and Alice were covered in whipped cream while Liam and Zayn were stirring something in a bowl chuckling and nudging each other every so often. Niall and Harry were no where to be seen so I just assumed they were in the living room. I walked in feeling kind of icky being in the same clothes as yesterday.


"Good morning mummy," Alice said shooting me a toothless smile. I giggled at her appearance  her hair was wildy placed atop her head and whipped cream covered almost her entire face, but Louis was worse. Whipped cream littered his hair and the side of his face, yet still they acted as if nothing happened.


"Jeez what happened to you guys." I said popping a strawberry in my mouth. Liam and Zayn had already greeted me with Hellos and Good Mornings whilst I was in the middle of my inspection. 


"Don't look at me, it was your little munchkin." Louis spoke up shooting daggers at Alice who blushed a deep red. I chuckled and playfully aimed at a strawberry at her. I stuck onto her cheek because of the sticky substance that was attached to her so fondly. She giggled and ate it happily. I rolled my eyes and decided to ask where the others were, "They're in the living room eating and watching the telly." Liam informed me sweetly. I nodded with no surprise, "So what's on the agenda for today lads?" I said searching there eyes.


"I'm going to Bradford for a few days to visit the family." Zayn announced. "Yeah, I'm headed to Wolverhampton as well, but we will be in Vegas in time for the Jingle Ball of course." Liam stated still stirring whatever they were making at that moment. I nodded and turned to Louis for his answer, but he hadn't noticed because he was to busy bickering with Alice over who looked the silliest.


"I do." Alice said glaring at him.


"NO me." Louis said struggling to maintain a straight face. That went on for about a minute until I couldn't take it anymore, "You both look crazy ok?" I said calmly looking from person to person. I giggled slightly as they returned to silence.


"Louis what are you doing for the next few days?"


"Well I was going to head to Doncaster to see the familia but I decided I'd visit after Christmas like I always do, they don't mind either. They get to celebrate two days in a row." He said smiling at me. Butterflies exploded in the pit of my stomach and my hands became clammy. God I hated it when he looked at me like that. I was jerked out of my daze when Alice started coughing again, I instantly became worried and reached over the granite counter top to feel her head for any unusual signs. Her head was burning up and her cough was escalating quickly.


"How long has she been coughing?" I question sending Louis a face of worry. "Since she woke up at 9." It was 11 now.


"Shit," I muttered under my breath. "Alice how do you feel?" 

"I'm fine mummy." She coughed, jumping off the wooden stool. I sighed and ran my fingers through my hair with closed eyes. "What's the big deal, it could just be a cold like last time." Louis reassured me. I nodded and sent him a warm smile which he returned.


I walked into the living room where Alice was nestled into Nialls lap. "Hey freaks." I said playfully running and jumping on Harrys lap. He let out a loud groan of annoyance and pain and I simply chuckled. I had power over him and I loved it.


"Monee check this out." Niall said tossing me his phone. It ended up hitting Harry which made everyone burst into laughter. He grunted in pain and I patted his head smiling evilly at him. I unlocked his phone with one swipe of my finger and glanced at the screen. I almost choked on my spit, it was a twit pic. It read: Louis and mystery girl seen hanging out in different destinations, Is Louis cheating on Eleanor." I looked at Niall with wide eyes and he urged me to scroll down. I swiped up and stared at the photo in disbelief. 


"Louis Tomlinson gets Eleanor pregnant and leaves for mysterious red head." It had a picture of me and Louis at starbucks and next to it was Louis walking into a clinic. Why didn't he tell me? Did he tell anyone? My eyes began to water suddenly and I stood up from Harrys lap.


"Come on now Harmony, you don't know what is going on right now." Niall said removing Alice from his lap prepared to chase me. I ran up the steps running into the guest room and slamming the door. I immediately locked it and fell back into the bed closing my eyes. Tears flowed down my cheeks silently. He got Eleanor pregnant and then lead me on? What sick person does this to someone? I have enough problem at the moment and now this. I rolled over and silently let the tears trickle down my flushed cheeks. I thought I loved him..




"Where's" She coughed once again, "Mummy?" Alice stuttered. Louis walked into the tense atmosphere with a huge grin. It faded once he saw our facial expressions and he soon returned the puzzled look.

"You guys look like you saw a ghost."


"Close to one." Harry spat sliding the phone across the glass coffee table. Alice was silent watching as Louis read what was on the screen. She seemed paler then usual.

"Why didn't you tell anyone?" I said looking at him with worry and disbelief. He shook his head rapidly and began to sputter out words. "No No, you got it wrong." He said looking at each of us. Liam and Zayn came in looking just as shocked, I'm guessing they'd been on twitter to. Just when we were about to gang up on him Alice suddenly fell limp in my arms. I looked down and saw that her eyes were closed and she wasn't moving at all. I shook her lightly just to make sure she had only fell asleep but she didn't budge. I shook her with more force and still she didn't move.


Everyone else was to busy scolding Louis to notice the big problem that had just occured.

"Guys." still no repsonse. "GUYS!" I yelled over top their bickering. They turned their attention to Alices' body in my arms and I looked at all of them with a worried expression. I got up quickly carrying her small body bridal style and absentmindedly slipped on my supras. Everyone scrambled around the house trying to find jackets and shoes. I ran out the door lying her in the backseat before driving to the nearest hospital.





I winced at the sound of banging and I slowly opened my eyes. "HARMONY HURRY GET UP!" I heard Harry frantically scream from the other side of the door. I slowly put on my boots and walked to the door unlocking it. I was pulled out by my arm and dragged down the steps, everyone was waiting and once they saw me they all ran to the door.


"What's going on? Where's Alice?!" I screamed over the commotion. Harry dragged me outside the house pulling me to Louis car and literally throwing me inside. "Harry!" I screamed causing everyone but Louis to stop what they were doing. Louis turned the key and began rushing to who knows where. 


"Alice was sitting with Niall and she just, fell out we had no idea what was happened, but she did look paler then normal." He whispered nervously. I felt my heart drop to my stomach and tears form in my eyes. I could have sworn I wasted all my tears on the whole Louis scenario but this was even worse. Zayn and Harry automatically wrapped their arms around me trying their best to comfort me but nothing was working. My baby was going to the hospital, and I don't even know why...


I was more scared then I was when my parents had gotten in that car accident. I was immediately brought back to the time when it all happened..




"Hello is this Harmony Ferrara?" The mystery person asked over the phone. "Yes? and you are." I questioned cautiously. I was home along with Oliver who was upstairs probably playing video games. "This is London General Hospital, your parents were in a car accident." She said clearly as heart broken as I was. 

"Ex- excuse me, no my parents are on their way home, That just can't be them! It can't!" I screamed into the phone. The woman hushed me and told me to come to the hospital as soon as possible. My brother drove us to the hospital only to hear the the doctor speak the horrifying words.


"Time of death January 13th 2006 12:00 midnight" 


*End of flashback*



"Harmony, hurry come on." Zayn whispered in my ear. I slowly picked my head out of his lap and scooted out quickly. I bolted towards the entrance to the gloomy hospital jogging through the automatic doors. I noticed Niall sitting in a waiting chair with his hands locked together and his head hanging low. I paced over to him and took a seat in the opposite chair. I put my hand on his back and rubbed it soothingly. He looked up at me and sent me a weak smile. I could tell what he was saying by the way his eyes peered at me. He was filled with anguish and heartbreak. The others all filed in at the same time looking breathless and saddened. We all sat there in silence. Everyone was drowned out by there thoughts including me. 


About an hour later the doctor came back with the horrible news. She hadn't told me yet but it was evident it was going to be bad. And man was I right...
