16. Will He Make It
I run out and see it's Liam they're shouting about. ''It's Liam!'' I scream, and Harry comes out. When he comes out, Liam's heart stops. I cup my hands over my face as the doctors try to revive him. I yell out his name many times. ''Oh my god.'' is all I hear Harry mutter. I can't stay, so I walk back to Louis' room. ''What happened?'' Louis asked. I sit next to him, unable to speak. ''He's dying.'' Harry says. Louis bows his head, ''No, he can't.'' I get up and sit on Louis' bed, because I had been on the floor. I snuggle close, staining his shirt with tears. ''Why Louis?'' I ask. ''Why Liam? He doesn't deserve this.'' I let the tears flow. Harry rolls out to check on him. He comes back, a doctor with him. Both look very depressed. ''He is in critical condition.'' the doctor says. Then he leaves. Liam is alive. But barely.
Even though I can't feel or see it, I know I'm in surgery. Suddenly, my heart stops. I hear screaming and running. It is completely black until a light appears. I'm heading in, until I hear a shout, ''Clear!!'' energy rushes through me and the light is gone. I live.
I wake up in a hospital, find out my friend is dying and then he lives. I'm freaking out! Brooke is crying beside me, her head buried in my neck. I have arms wrapped around her. Harry sits, looking at the floor. Niall is asleep in the next hall and has no idea what's happening. It's quiet since they stabilized Liam. Too quiet. I begin to sing to Brooke. ''Your hand fits in mine like it's made just for me. But bare this in mind, it was, meant to be.'' Harry joins, ''And I'm joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks and it all makes sense to me'' I begin, ''I know you've never loved, the crinkles by your eyes, when you smile, you've never loved your stomach or your thighs. And the dimples in your back, at the bottom of your spine, but I'll love them endlessly.'' All 3 of us sing the chorus, ''I won't let these little things, slip, out of my mouth. But if I do, it's you, it's you, they add up too. I'm in love with you, and all your little things.''
