10. The Accident
I woke up at about 6 and was lying on Harry's lap. He was asleep. I decided to wake him up so I could talk to him. I started rubbing his head and playing with his hair. "Baby, wake up." I said with a smile on my face. He woke up and looked at me. He smiled and pecked my lips.
"Hey, cutie." He said, winking. Everyone else was passed out on the couches. Niall was spread out everywhere, Zayn was laying in a ball, Louis was on top of Zayn, and Jade was in Liam's arms. "This is adorable." He said, laughing and quickly taking a picture of the sleepy bunch. He posted it on Twitter: "@Harry_Styles awwww, look how cute :) xx" I just laughed. There was a knock on the door. I figured it was dad, since he hadn't been home and I hadn't seen him since the hospital. I opened the door and there were two policemen standing there. I figured it was about the whole Taylor dilemma, but they didn't pull out any handcuffs or anything, so I was wondering what was wrong. They were probably looking for some drug addict on the loose or something.
"Are you Abby Smith?" I nodded. "I'm sorry, Abby, but there's been an accident." I had a confused look on my face. "It's your father. He's dead."
I looked up and saw Abby talking to two cops. I thought she was going to get arrested, so I walked to the door. Abby immediately collapsed. I quickly caught her, asking what was wrong. "Babe! What's going on?" I asked the police.
"Her father has been in an accident, leaving him dead." I was so shocked. I looked down at Abby. She was crying harder than I've ever seen her.
"No!" She shouted. "No, no, no, no, no! This can't be happening! Is this a joke?" She asked, tears flowing.
"I wish it was, Abby. I'm so sorry for your loss." She started crying even harder, which I didn't even know was possible. She started screaming. I was holding her in my arms, sitting on the floor. I couldn't imagine what she was going through right now. She had lost both of her parents. I couldn't even bare if I just lost one. Her screams and sobs woke everyone up, causing them to run to us.
"Abby! What's wrong, babe?" Jade asked. She looked so scared.
"M-m-my d-d-d-dad, NOOOO!" She continued sobbing.
"Shhhhh, baby. It's okay. I'm here. Shhhhhh." I was rubbing her back and kissing her head repeatedly. "I'm so sorry." Everyone stood there in shock, still not knowing what was going on. I mouthed out, "Car accident." Jade dropped down on her knees, tears in her eyes.
"I'm so sorry, Abby. I'm so sorry." She was holding her hand, rubbing it. I guess that calmed her down, because she was about to fall asleep. She quickly yanked away and ran to the kitchen. I thought she was going to get her inhaler considering she was barely breathing, but no. She had a knife. Held to her neck.
"Abby! Please! Don't do this." I was crying.
"He was the only one. The only one who took care of me and loved me." She said, tears in her eyes. Had she forgotten about me? About Jade? About the rest of her family?
"Abby. You have many people that love and care about you. Just look around." I said, pointing to everyone that was there. I was walking slowly towards her. "Baby, please. Don't." I took her hand and started lowering the knife. It was finally in my hands and I threw it on the floor behind me. "I love you." I said, with tears stinging my eyes. I grabbed her in a tight hug, burying my face in her long, brown hair. I started rubbing her back and kissing her shoulder.
"I love you too, Harry." She managed to squeeze out in between sobs. I helped her up to her room and she lied down on the bed. I kissed her cheek and she was quickly asleep. I walked back downstairs to a crying Jade in Liam's arms, Niall was playing his guitar softly, and Louis and Zayn were just sitting there, looking at the floor. I walked in the livingroom and everyone looked at me.
"She's asleep." I said, lowly.
"How did this happen?" Louis said, seriously. That's one of the first time I've seen him be serious.
"I'm not sure. The police just came and told her that her dad was in an accident and he had died. I can't imagine what she's going through, since she's already lost her mum, too." Everyone just sat there and dropped their heads. And just when things started to get better.
