14. Beautiful Mistake
Harry drove me to the hospital. The doctors said that I had a shattered tibia, a broken ankle, a torn ACL, and a fractured hip. Whoa. I know that it pretty much explained the pain. They put a full leg cast on me, covering my hip, too. I got it in my favorite color, light blue. Harry was the first to sign it. He put, "I'm sorry that this happened to you, babe. I'll be right here the entire time. Get well soon xx -Harry :)". He is so sweet. I called Jade and she was with the boys. I told her I was in the hospital and I would tell her what happened whenever she got there. She arrived with One Direction in about 15 minutes. She knocked on the door and Harry answered. She had her eyes closed, preparing for what she was going to see. She opened them.
"Oh my goodness, what happened?!" She said with her hand over her mouth.
"I um, I, I-" I started tearing up, thinking about the pain I've endured from that sick mystery bastard.
"I'll explain, babe." Harry interrupted me.
"She fell in the shower and broke her leg." Why was he lying? He was probably trying to save me the tears.
"That's it? And it broke her entire leg?" Jade said, confused.
"It was a hard fall." He said, lying.
"Harry, you can tell her the truth. It's okay." I said, putting my hand on his. "I promise." I said, smiling.
"What do you mean the truth?" Jade was still baffled.
"Okay, sit down. This is probably going to take a while to explain." Everyone nodded and sat on the small couch. "We were going to go out to clear our minds. I told her to take a shower and I would run by my house and grab some clothes. When I got back, she was gone. I called her phone and some man answered. He said that he had Abby and was being really creepy and perverted and he slapped her face when she said that she loved me. I told him I would find him and kill him and hung up. I rushed to Paul's house and he traced Abby's number. I left and got another call. I thought it was the man, but it was Abby. I followed the tracker to Norbury Street. Still on the phone, I asked Abby where she was. She came out from behind a small bush naked, wearing only a jacket that barely covered her body. I was so upset and stunned. She collapsed and I ran to her. I helped her up and took her to my car, giving her my blazer to cover up with. I looked at her leg and it was purple and swollen. I asked her what had happened and she told me that she was in the shower and got knocked out. She woke up in a van with some big guy in black. He was talking dirty to her and after getting off of the phone with me, he-he raped her. She managed to punch him in the face and knock him out." Zayn's jaw dropped and all the boys' eyes widened. Jade just sat there. She already knew what Abby was capable of doing. "Well, she decided to jump out of the back of the van, but shattered her tibia, broke her ankle, tore her ACL, and fractured her hip on the fall. Then she called me." Everyone just sat there and stared at Abby I'm amazement. "That's my little soldier." I said, kissing her casted leg. She smiled. I grabbed her hand and started rubbing the back of it with my thumb.
"Abby, I knew you were strong, but this strong." Jade said, walking to her bedside and hugging her for a good 10 seconds. "I'm so proud of you." Abby smiled.
"I'm just glad that it's over with. Shit."
"What's wrong babe?" I said.
She motioned me to come over to her and she whispered in my ear, "I just started my period."
"Oh, I'll get you some necessities." I whispered back. "I'll be back in a minute, lads. Gotta use the loo." I said, walking out of the room and went to the front desk. "Ma'am, do you happen to have any tampons?" I asked the secretary. She handed me about five and I shoved them up my sleeve, walking back to the room. Everyone was laughing at a joke Louis had pulled. This is the happiest I've seen Abby in days. Her smile was so beautiful. Her laugh was adorable. It was so loud. I loved it. I just stood there, staring at her in awe.
"Harry, why don't you take a picture? It'll last longer." Louis said, pulling me out of my trance.
"Oh, shut up, Lou." I said, rolling my eyes and walking to the bedside table and opening the drawer without anyone noticing. I shoved the tampons in there. I whispered in Abby's ear, "The tampons are in the drawer." She nodded.
"Harry, can you help me up and to the bathroom, please?" She asked me.
"Of course, sweetheart." I helped her up and grabbed a tampon. We walked to the restroom outside of the room. I don't see how she did it, but she managed to get her tampon in. I don't even know how she got her pants down far enough with that cast. She got up ans flushed the toilet. She grabbed her stomach and started puking in it. I held her hair back and rubbed her back.
"What was that about?" I asked.
"Not really sure. Probably just food poisoning."
"The last thing you ate were those nachos and they weren't bad."
"I guess they must have been."
"Babe, can I ask you something?"
"When he raped you, was in regular or anal?"
"Regular, why?" She sat there for a second. Her eyes got wide. "You don't think- no, it can't be."
"Babe, you need to find out. I'll go to the front desk and get a pregnancy test. Okay? Stay here." I walked out of the bathroom and got the test and came back, handing it to Abby.
She used it and waited about three minutes. Three long, agonizing minutes.
"Okay, you look. I can't bare to see it." She said, covering her eyes. I took a deep breath and picked it up. There was a pink plus sign on it. She was pregnant.
"Oh. My. God." I said. I dropped the test and took Abby into my arms. I kissed her head. "I'm sorry, baby. But you're.. pregnant." She sat on the toilet seat, mouth open. A tear ran down from her eye. I wiped it away. "Listen." I said, kneeling down on my knees. "This is good. We are going to have a baby. Think about how much this is going to improve our relationship. We're going to keep this child." I layed my hand on her stomach. "I'm going to raise it like its my own." I kissed her forehead. "It's okay."
"You're right. We're having a baby!" She smiled.
"Exactly. This is going to make the perfect family." I looked down at her stomach. "Whoever you are in there, I want to tell you that I love you. And you're going to be either my princess or my prince." I looked up at Abby. She was smiling. "And as for you, little lady. You're my queen. I promise to treat you like royalty all throughout this pregnancy, this broken leg, and this relationship. I love you."
"I love you too." She smiled, kissing my lips softly.
I'm going to be a dad.
