I lay on the hospital bed, very tired and weary, from laying on the battered bed for long hard hours. Black lines out line my eye. I rub nervously at my eye, trying not to sleep. Even though I had the whole time to sleep. I couldn't. When Ebony had told me that she is my soul mates and that she loves me, and that she would not never in a million thousand years let me be with my love Kayleigh. That scared me, a lot. A question replays over and over in my mind, again and again. Did Ebony really mean that she loved me? How could she be my soul mate? She just couldn't. Could she? Of course not. Ebony never would in a million hundred years be my soul mate. It was not like Ebony was not pretty, because she was. She was really pretty, kind, sweet. But not the one for me. I had a soul mate, and a amazing one too, and her name was Kayleigh West-soon to be Horan, and I loved her really much. Could Ebony ever try and replace my beloved Kayleigh, to try and mask my true feeling for Kayleigh. I really just missed Kayleigh so much and still do. Everywhere I looked I saw her, her beautiful perfect face, her gorgeous brown glossy hair, her warm brown eyes that twinkle when they looks at me, her sweet heart warming smile. Everything. I missed seeing Kayleigh, miss talking to her, miss holding her in my arms, like we were the only ones in the world. Like she was mine, and mine only. I miss Kayleigh, she was the one who taught me to love, the one that made me feel loved, the one who loved me for being Niall, not Niall Horan teen pop sensation, the guy from one direction. She loved me for being me, being hungry, being funny. But most of all being me. I look through the window from the hospital. It is night time now. I can see the small silver stars dazzling and sparkling brightly among the dark scary sky. I close my eyes and make a wish:
To reunite with Kayleigh. To make sure that Kayleigh was happy and safe and sound. That me and Kayleigh would remain forever together as the perfect couple we are. We are the couple everyone wants to be, lovable, sweet, never fighting, always together. Always snuggled up and being happy.
I remember a moment, a month ago or so. I remember it so clearly. We had decided to go to the fun fair. Just me, Kayleigh and Jayden, and we had the most amazing time. We went on loads of roller coasters, and family rides too, like climbing on the elephant. I remember Kayleigh and Jayden on the pink elephant and me on the blue elephant, me snapping pictures at them, as the posed and smiled for the character. All of us eating some delicious pink candy floss, and special star sweets that star busted in your tongue. Us watching a movie, us watching a sweet calm family movie. It was "Finding Nemo". I remember the bit where at the beginning, Marlin had watched his wife getting killed right in front of his eyes, and he had remained powerless. When Marlin was searching amongst his damaged eggs, eggs that wouldn't become fishes. There was that one egg, which was not broken or damaged and that become Nemo. I remembered Kayleigh snuffling into me, tears splashing down her face. When I had asked her if she was crying. She lied and said who cries for Nemo. But I secretly knew that she did.
I suddenly hear a pair of loud footsteps approaching my room. I was the only one in the room, and then decided whoever had come. They had come for me. I open my eyes and looks around the dark room. Who could it be? I thought, that question floated around my mind. My eyes dart around the room, looking carefully around the room.
"Hello, whoever it is outside my room. Please come out. Show yourself be brave like a man. Don't be a chicken. I am not afraid of you" I exclaim loudly, in a loud tone, my voice echoing around.
Trying to remain brave and confident. I stare wide open as the door creaks open. I see a lumbering shadow looming outside. A scary unsettled feeling creeps through me, running through my veins. I wipe a sweat that trickles down my face. I shake the horrible cold feeling away, trying to be brave. For Kayleigh. How would everyone think if I got scared because of something from the dark? That would be horrible. I grip tightly on to the duvet, my fingers clenching tightly. I take a deep breath trying to calm down myself. Suddenly the shadow steps out of the darkness, and then out steps. Ebony. Her coal long black hair flying in the wind, still straight and glossy. Her almond like eyes look at me intensely, like she trying to glare into my soul. She walks toward me, her thin arms snaking around my shoulder like a poisonous snake. She tucks a strand of her coal black hair, then smiles mischievously at me. or some reason I don't think Ebony should be here right now, a cold thrilling presence fills me.
"Be like a man you say Niall, well I am indeed not a man, I am a woman. I am not a chicken, sweet Niall" Ebony exclaims in a loud tone.
"Yes, but" I begin to say.
"And are you really sure you are not afraid of me Niall, because you seemed very afraid, your voice sounded scared, and see even know your sweating like a pig who has ran a thousand meters." Ebony continues, wiping a sweat that trickles down my face.
"Well" I mutter.
"Well you may ask what I am doing, I just came here to say one thing" Ebony whispered, her eyes glaring menacingly at me.
"What is it? Please don't hurt me" I ask, trying to hide under the duvet, very scared and frightened.
"I won't hurt you Niall" Ebony laughed in a flirty tone.
"You won't" I exclaimed, smiling.
Thank god. At least I know Ebony would not hurt me. I tried to calm down my pounding racing heart that beats rapidly.
"I won't hurt you Niall, but if you don't agree to what I say I will hurt the ones you love, and make a horrible lie about you" Ebony sneers.
"OK, tell me what do you want me to do" I asked, my voice quiet and scared.
My fingers trembling with fear. What if she told me to do something horrible, like kill someone. Then what do I do. I could not do it, could I. Never. Please be something easy, not painful, and quiet.
"I want you to marry me" Ebony shouts.
"But" I protest.
"If you say no I will lie that you took advantage over me, that she did bad things to me, and then hurt the ones you love like Jayden, and your friends, and not to mention your pathetic girlfriend" Ebony shouts.
"She is not pathetic, she is kind sweet lovable and I love her really much" I object.
"Whatever, marry me or I will make your life a living nightmare for you Niall Horan" Ebony exclaims.
"But" I mutter.
"You can tell me your answer tomorrow, and I hope it is good. Now don't tell anyone, it is our secret or you will pay for it, and go to sleep" Ebony tells me.
"Ok" I whisper.
What does she think that I would tell someone? Why would I? That would make them in a lot of danger too. I nodded my head quietly.
"Good night sweet Niall" Kayleigh whispers, pressing her lips on my forehead and then storming out of the room, shutting the door behind. Leaving me quiet and speechless.
