I had been driving for hours. It was now 5 o'clock now. I looked at my phone and Harrys name lit it up. 7 missed calls from Harry. 13 missed texts from Harry. I needed to stay somewhere, and I sure as hell wasn't sleeping in the car.I decided their was only place that I could go to. A place that Harry never had been too. My mums house.
I got back on the main roads and headed to my house. I got there in no time. I took a deep breath and walked into the house. I rolled my eyes at a probably over dosed mother lying on the couch.
"Who the fuck is walking- Aly" John was home. Fuck. He was supposed to be at work.
"Hello John." I mumbled.
"So, you finally decide to come back and let me start what I finished, yeah?" He was walking closer to me.
"No. I'm just staying here for the night. I had an argument with my husband.
"Whatever bitch! I know your ass isn't married. What guy would want you? I took everything you had from you, and don't think I won't do it again!" He grabbed me and slung me over his shoulder. "You ain't going anywhere tomorrow sweetie. You're going to stay here with me again. You know I was worried about you. I didn't have a tight pussy to fuck around here anymore."
"Fuck you!" I spat.
"Well if you say so." He threw me on the bed and I hit my head on something hard. After that I didn't feel anything but pain. Why was I so stupid? Why did I come back here? I knew this was going to happen. I'm so stupid.
Aly left over 4 hours ago. I hoped she was okay. She wasn't answering any of my texts or calls. I put my head in my hands and started sobbing. Niall walked over to me and put his arms around my shoulder.
"It'll be alright, mate. She'll be fine."
"Yeah, mate." Liam chimed in.
"She always picks up my calls. No matter what. She always has ever since we were kids. I really hope she didn't go back home. John would tear her apart." Hailey said.
"She not picking up my calls either." Kelly said.
They all looked at eachother. Niall nodded at Louis, Liam and Zayn and they went into the next room. I wonder what they were doing. I but my head back in my hands and started sobbing again. The girls walked over to me and sat down and whispered 'she's going to be ok' and 'don't worry she'll come back' I reall hoped that she'd be ok and that she'd come back.
I woke up, confused. I was hurting between the legs, then I remembered John had beat me again.
"The baby!" I screamed to myself.
I put my clothes on and looked at the bruises on my body. I poked one particular bruise on my stomach. It hurt bad. I grabbed my phone and gave Harry a ring. He needed to meet me at the hospital.
"Hello?" Harry sounded like he had been crying.
"Aly? Baby, where are you? Please-"
"Harry, I don't have time for that, meet me at the hospital down town as soon as you can. It's serious."
I hung up. I ran downstairs to find my keys and darted out the door.
Aly needed me at the hospital. I wonder what happened. She seemed upset. I slipped on some joggers and a t-shirt with my white converse. I grabbed my keys on the way out the door. I hopped into the Audi we had bought a few months back and headed to the hospital. Their was traffic. I wondered if Aly was caught in it too. So I decided to give her a ring to see.
"Hey, babe. You caught in traffic to?"
"Yeah, but I'm probably closer to the hospital then you are."
It was quiet and I broke the silence.
"Aly. I'm sorry."
"Harry, I don't want to hear it."
"Aly, please hear me out. I have anger problems. I never told you cause I loved you so much and I didn't want you to leave me because of them."
"Harry. Why wouldn't you tell me about something that serious?"
"Because, I thought you would look down on me as a person. I thought that you wouldn't want to be with me and I just loved you so much and I didn't want to loose you. But their's a story behind it, I think you would understand better if you listened to it."
I heard her sigh on the other side of the line and mumble 'Go ahead'
"When I was little." His voice cracked.
"My parents would fight all the time and my father would beat my mum. She pushed us
into Gemmas room so we wouldn't see it. It went on until my parents got a divorce.
Then my mum met Robin and everything got better. But then when I was 16 Gemma was dating this guy Alex. She would come home with bruises and cuts all over her body after going out with him. When we asked her about them, she just said she fell or 'accedently' cut herself while cooking. One day, he came over drunk. It was really late at night and I was the only one up. I was watching the telly and he knocked on the door. I already didn't like him cause I knew, I just knew he was beating my sister. So I asked him what he wanted and he said he wanted to see Gemma. I told him she was sleeping and he didn't believe me. He started screaming at me 'where is Gemma? where is she?' I pushed him out of the house because everyone was sleeping. He yelled at me and told me not to fucking touch him. I was so tired of getting pushed around,and having the women in my life beaten. So I asked him why he hit my sister. He told me he did it because he can. I lost it and beat the hell out of him. Pretty soon my mum and Gemma woke up and they were outside where we were. I realised they were crying and I stopped. He was bleeding badly. I stood up and looked at my sister and mum. They were both crying. I took a step towards them and they stepped back, with terror in their face. I couldn't believe. They were now scared of me. Of me. I couldn't believe what happened." I started crying.
"Harry, if we're going to be in a relationship, we need to be honest with eachother all the time. No relationship lasts on lies."
She was right. I was stupid for not telling her.
"Baby. I'm sorry, I know I promised this before but it will never happen again. I promise I am going to get help. Just please don't leave. If you do, you will take everything I ever loved."
"Harry, I wasn't going to leave you in the first place, I was just hurt that you raised your hand to me again after you said you wouldn't."
"I know. But I will get help."
Traffic was starting to speed up.
"I love you." She murmered.
"I love you too, Harry."
"Are you at the hospital? I'm almost there."
"Yeah, just pulled in. Ask for Styles when you get there, okay?"
"Ok babe. Love you, bye."
"Love you too."
And I hung up. I pulled into the hospital and grabbed a parking spot. I headed into the hospital without looking like I was in a hurry.
"Yes, what can I help you with sir?" A older lady asked.
"Erm, Styles please?"
"Right down there and to the left, third door down." She smiled and I strode down the hallway. I opened the door and Aly was sitting on the little bed. She smiled at me. She had been crying. I looked at her legs and they were bruised up.
"What happened?" I was shocked if John did that to her I was gunna rip him to shreds. I felt myself well up in anger again. If I was going to stay with Aly I needed to learn how to controll my anger. I stopped and breathed for 10 second and I was calmed.
"John." She looked down at her feet. I walked over to her and stood between her legs, pulling her hands in mine.
"Why woud you go back there? And why are we here?"
"I didn't have anywhere to go and I didn't want to go back home. He was supposed to be at work. My mum was passed out on the couch. So she didn't know I was there. Then John picked me up and brought me to his bedroom and threw me on the bed. I hit my head on something and I don't know what happened afterwords. But he most likely raped me again." She started crying. I pulled her to my chest and she wrapped her arms around me. I had my hands on her waist. I would be so lost without her.
"And the reason we're here is this."
She pulled away from me and lifted up her shirt, showing me a huge black bruise on her belly.
"I wanted to make sure the baby is ok. If he or she isn't. I will have his head." She clenched her teeth together and her jaw tightened.
With that the doctor came in and I sat down in a chair next to the bed.
"So what's brought you two here today?" He said. "Oh, and sorry, where are my manners? I'm Doctor Krouse."
We both shook his hand and he sat down on one of those swivel chairs.
"Ughm, I fell, and I'm pregnant, I have a bruise on my stomach I just wanted to make sure my baby is okay."
She lied about the falling part. but for now we'd just go with it.
She lifted up her shirt and showed the doctor the bruise. He lightly touched it and she wincined.
"That hurts." She whined.
"Ma'am, I don't want to scare you or anything, but that's not just a bruise. If it's that dark the baby may not be okay."
She started sobbing and I got up and put my arm around her shoulder. I kissed her head, pulling her closer to me. She threw her arms around me and dug her head into my chest.
"Harry!" She sobbed.
"Shh..It's ok baby. I promise it will be ok."
"I take it that you are the father?" The doctor looked at me and raised his eye brows.
"Good. Can I talk to you in the hallway for a moment please."
"Sure." I gave Aly one more kiss on the forehead and headed into the hallway with the doctor, closing the door behind me.
"That is not a bruise from falling. You have to tell me exactly what happened."
I didn't really want too. I don't know if Aly would want me to.
"I can't really tell you.." I let my voice trail off.
"Sir, I need to know."
"Her step-dad beat her okay."
"Thank you, that's all I needed to know." And he walked off.
"Hey!" I called down the hallway as he turned around and staring walking back towards me. "Please don't contact authorities. Me and her will handle this on our own. Alright?"
"Alright." He smiled and walked away. I walked back into the room and she was a mess. She was curled up in a ball crying. I grabbed her in my arms and pulled her to me.
"Don't worry babe. It will be ok. It'll all be fine." I kissed her on the head and started rocking her back and forth, rubbing small circles into her back.
