The one who saved me from horrible people and stopped me from doing terrible things to myself. Can I fall for him again? I guess you'll have to read and find out


15. Chapter 15

Erin POV

It's been a week. I haven't left the hospital except to eat and shower and stuff. Harry was going to stay with me, but I told him to stay home and take care of Ricky. Everyone comes by everyday, but Jake, mom, and I stay over night. 

I missed everybody. We all bonded again so well. Annabell has been doing well with her pregnancy. Hopefully she's ready for the pain she's gonna have soon.

Anyways, my dad and I talk all the time. I've missed him so much. It's like I never left and nothing ever happened. But, he's been getting even more ill as the days go by. I get really scared sometimes. 

I cry for him during the night, but when I see Harry with Ricky, my worries go away. Mom and dad love Ricky so much. So, does Ricky. I feel so much more happy. I have my entire family back. And everything is going so smoothly. 

"Hi mommy," Ricky came in the room and jumped on my lap. "Hey Ricky," I kissed his cheek. All the boys came in and kissed my cheek.  Alex hugged me. 

"So are you and Louis," I asked her. She smiled widely. "We're doing really well." "Have you know.." She laughed, "Not yet." "Use protection!!!" "Of course, I will. I'm not you....jk" My jaw dropped and I hit her shoulder. She laughed even more. 

"I miss this...just us hanging out," I told her. " too. Let's go have lunch today. Just me and you. I'd invite Annabell but she has a check up today." I nodded in agreement. 

Harry walked over to us and I smiled. "Hey gorgeous," he said to me. I blushed. "Why do you keep hitting on my best friend," asked Alex. "Uhh...cause your best friend is my girlfriend," Harry laughed. I shook my head. "I am not your girlfriend." he looked at me, "Of course you are." I shook my head again.

He kept talking again, "Sooo..your telling me, you don't feel happy when I'm with you? I see you smile every time I come near you. I see you blush every time I compliment you. I feel when you relax when I hold your hand, or stroke you hair." 

I looked at him and said, "I'm not gonna deny it. I do do those things. But that doesn't mean I'm your girlfriend." he smiled, "But you will be.." "Mhmm.."

My dad started to cough. Mom went to get him some breakfast. "Dad you ok? Need anything?" I was getting a little worried. "'s alright sweetheart. I'm fine." I nodded my head uneasy.

I spent the rest of the morning talking to him. It broke my heart ti see my dad so weak. I couldn't take it anymore. I walked outside and just started crying.

Niall saw me and wrapped his arms around me. "'s gonna be okay Erin." I kept crying. I couldn't speak. I just stayed with Niall for a couple of minutes. When I looked up he was crying too. 

"Niall...don't cry." "It's really sad to see you like this Erin. I don't like to see you cry." This was so sad. Niall crying, is one of the saddest things I've ever seen.  I hugged him so more.

This boys are so helpful to me. I love them all so much. We walked back to the room. My dad fell asleep, and Alex and I decided to go to lunch now.

'"Annabell...I know you have an appointment, so do you want us to wait for you?" Alex and I asked her. "Nooo..that's fine. I was planning on getting a cheeseburger or something from the cafeteria. I should probably stay in the hospital anyways," she answered.

Alex and I headed to Nandos. We sat down and someone came and took our order. He was actually really cute. He kept smiling at me.

"Someone likes you.." Alex nudged me "What? Me? Nooo..I wouldn't date him anyways. He's cute though." The waiter came back with our food, " to join me for some dinner tonight?" He asked me. He seemed sweet, but I said, "Sorry..I can't. I have a boyfriend. His name's Harry." 

He nodded his head and walked off. I don't think he liked that I turned him down. Oh well. " you and Harry are dating?" Alex smiled. "No! I just said that so I wouldn't have to go on a date with a complete stranger," I explained.

"But you wanna date Harry.." " No I don't I didn't say that." She scolded me. I sighed, "Okay fine....maybe I do. I'm just scared. He's showed me how much he loves me and Ricky, but.....can I trust him again? Am I stupid for going back to the same guy that left me?"

"'re not stupid. You love him. I can tell that you do. You know the expression 'if you love something, set it free. And if they love you back, they'll come back'? Well...that's what happened with you and Harry. He loves you so much. He learned his lesson. I don't think he'll make the same mistake twice," Alex told me.

I sighed and smiled warmly at her. "Thanks. You know how to help me. I just don't know yet." She nodded. She knows I'm confused about this whole thing.

We talked a while longer before heading back to the hospital. Annabell and the boys were talking with my mom. My dad was still sleeping. Anjali and Jake were talking too. 

Harry saw me and smiled. I smiled back. I went and sat next to Annabell. We convinced the doctors to let her give birth in here if she goes into labor, cause dad wants to see the baby. 

" you been?" I asked her. "I'm doing good. Roc id gonna come down next week in time for the baby...ahhh!!" She gripped her stomach. Everyone looked at her. "You alright!?" I asked. 

She calmed down. "Yea..must of been the cheeseburger. I've been having these weird stomachaches all day. They come and go every few minutes," Annabell explained. 

My jaw dropped, "OH MY GOD!!!" I yelled. They boys looked at me like I'm crazy. Then Harry said, "Relax. We'll get her some advil. She'll be fine."

I smacked his arm and shouted, "You idiot!! Those aren't stomachaches; they're contraction. SHE'S IN LABOR!!!!!" Everyone's eyes widened. Annabell started screaming in pain. We called in the doctor, and they put her on the bed. 

"She's 9 centimeters dilated. They baby's gonna be her soon." We called Roc and he's on his way. He has to take a plane. Annabell is still in a lot of pain.

"God dammit Erin!!! How did you do this at 16?!" I laughed, 'Believe me, it wasn't easy." "Ahhhh!!!" She screamed again. Just then, dad started coughing like crazy. Mom and Jake came rushing over. The beds were close together, so I was holding Annabell's and dad's hand.

"Dad!! You alright?" I was really frantic. "Listen, Erin," he started coughing and then kept talking. He could barely speak, "It's my time to go now." I shook my head, 'No!! Dad. You'll be alright. " I was tears now. 

The doctor came back in and said that Annabell was 10 centimeters. "Okay...time to push." Annabell nodded. "1.........2.........3..push." "AHHH!!!!" She screamed so loud. She was holding onto our hands.

Mom was at the other end of dad and Aunt Anne was was with Annabell. Dad started to talk again, "I love you so much Erin. I can't even explain how sorry I am. I've missed you, and I wish I could have been there for you these 2 years.  You are such a good mom. I am so...proud of you." 

I saw a tear slide down his cheek as his eyes started to close. I let go of Annabell's hand and Harry grabbed it. I heard the doctor say again, "1...2....3..push!" She did as told. Her screams getting louder.

I looked back at dad. My hands were shaking. Mom and Jake were in tears. I was down by my knees near his bed, "Daddy! Please!! Stay awake. You'll be okay. I just found you guys again," I cried through sniffles. 

"You're my little angel. I love you..and I always will," He told me. "Dad...I can't loose you," I choked out. " will never loose me. I'll" His voice trailed off as both of his eyes started to close.

"Daddy!! please wake up!! please," i cried. "Push!" I heard the doctor. "AHHHHH!!!!" Annabell screamed the loudest she has so far. I heard dad's monitor go beeeeeeep. I cried some more, and then....I heard the cries of a little infant baby.

I turned around and a gorgeous baby boy in Annabell's arms. I smiled and then turned back to my dad. I say him lay there, motionless. I broke down. harry cradled me in his arms as I sobbed. I guess what they say is true: when one angelic soul leaves this world, another one is born into it.
