5. Chapter 4

“What is it again?” Louis choked out; his eyes were glossy, and Zayn couldn’t even look at me in the eye; it killed me.

“ALS.” I said quietly, doing my best to not cry I felt my throat tense up as my eyes wanted to let the tears fall.

“How do you expect us not to tell Niall and Liam?” Zayn whispered, holding on to his knees so tightly; I was worried. Niall had gone over to the food table, picking up a couple things, and Liam had said he needed to go to the bathroom; this was our only chance to say something.

“I don’t want them to know; please.” I said, looking down at my hands that were already shaking.

Harry grabbed my hands, reassuring me. “We won’t tell them. Will we?” He said looking up at Zayn and Louis. They both nodded, wiping their eyes and trying to compose themselves as Niall walked over with crackers in both hands.

He stopped, looking at me and then at the others. “Everything alright here?”

“Why wouldn’t it be mate?” Lou said, standing up and smiling; it was so fake.

“You all look….sad.” Niall said, coming over to me and sitting down. He offered me his last cracker, smirking when I took it.

“Nah, we are fine. Right?” I said, nibbling on the edge of it.

Zayn and Louis nodded, leaving Harry to say something. I looked at Harry, hoping he wouldn’t ruin it. Harry went to open his mouth when Liam came out of the bathroom, sighing in relief. “Now, let’s get back to singing!” He exclaimed, completely ignoring the fact that we were all talking.
They all stood, heading back behind the glass and putting on headphones. The music began to play; Niall began rocking out to the bass, making me giggle at his attempt to brighten everyone’s day.
Lou began to sing, and I looked around to each boy. Harry was concentrating on the lyrics, Zayn was looking at the ceiling and Niall continued to rock out. Liam? Well…he was looking at me. I smiled, trying to be nice and waved. Woah. Wait…did he just wink? I think he did. He smiled back, winking again and I felt my cheeks heat up. Shit.

Niall looked over at me and smiled, sticking his tongue out at me playfully; what a weirdo. He waved at me, and Liam glared over at him. What is going on in there? Harry looked up at the two of them and then at me, rolling his eyes; what was even happening?

Harry began singing, trying to ignore the two of them. Niall rolled his eyes at Liam and then went back to me. He winked. What is with the winking? Liam looked at me as well and smiled from ear to ear. Why were they flirting with me? I scrunched my nose in confusion, immediately feeling a headache coming on; my fingers began to shake and I couldn’t control them. I stood up uneasy, running to the bathroom to try to stop my muscle spasms.

I heard doors open and shut, and someone running to the door I was behind. “Are you alright, love?” Niall said, panicking.

Did he just call me love? “I-I’m f-f-fine.” I stuttered. Shit; why did this have to happen to me?

“Are you sure? I’m coming in there.” Niall said, jiggling the handle. “Jenny, unlock this door.”

“Niall, I’m fine.” I said, trying to sound calm. I breathed in through my nose, out through my mouth, over and over. I unlocked the door on my third breath, having Niall push it open and look at me, flustered.

“Jenny?! What happened?” He said, grabbing my hands that were still slightly shaking. I hoped he didn’t notice.


“I was so worried.” He said, rubbing his thumb across my hand. “You are shaking.”

“Sorry, I was just thinking.” I said, feeling my face heat up. What was my excuse going to be? How was I going to cover up the fact that I was terribly sick and I was going to lose everyone and everything close to me; that I was going to eventually die a terrible death even though Harry was convinced that I wouldn’t;  that I would survive. How the FUCK was I going to do that?

“What about?” Niall asked quietly; his voice was so soothing, and it made my heart melt.

“Nothing important.” I mumbled, hoping that would be enough for him. Change the God damn subject. “I’m sorry I made a huge scene.” I said with a shaky laugh.

“It’s alright, we were just about done anyways.” He said with a small smile, standing up with my hand still in his. I stood with him, still feeling sick. He led me back out to the room, where all the boys were getting ready to leave. Niall let go of my hand to get his jacket, leaving me to stand there awkwardly.
Harry walked over, trying not to look worried. “What happened?” He whispered, reaching for some fruit on the table I stood next to.

“I got overwhelmed.” I said, crossing my arms and leaning on the edge of the table.

“Liam and Niall were trying to flirt with you.” He said, grabbing a strawberry and offering it to me. I declined shaking my head.

“That’s the reason I was overwhelmed.” I whispered. “The stress the two of them liking me, it’s overwhelming and I think it’s adding to the pressure; making my symptoms act up.”

Harry nodded thoughtfully, agreeing. “Do you want me to tell Liam to back off?”

“Why not Niall too?” I asked, now curious.

Harry smirked, wiping his hands and looking at Niall and then at me. “You’re terrible at hiding your feelings.” What feelings was he talking about? What did Harry mean? Before I could ask, Niall had come over with my coat and wrapped his arm around my shoulders. “Come on Jenny, lets go get something to eat.”

“Why don’t we all go out to eat?” Liam asked. He doesn’t want me to be alone with Niall.

“Liam, let them go get something to eat, they have been best friends since grade school.” Louis piped in, letting Niall escort me out of the building and to the car with a smile on his face. What a smug bastard.
