Bound To You

Its been almost a year since the twins were born. Lucy and Nina are growing up. When secrets are made, friendships break. Who will leave the picture and who will be bound to stay?


11. Chapter 10

So I'm sorry for my crappy chapters lately. Hopefully this is better!



(Lucy's POV)


I didn't know who I expected to see when I woke up, but it certainly wasn't her.


"what are you doing here?" I asked her, my voice cracking with every word.


I watched her face fall as she slowly started backing away. "I- I'm sorry. I'll just go now." she said, releasing my hand.


I quickly reached forward and grabbed it again. "please. Don't go..." I whispered.


A small smile fell upon her face. "I'm so happy you pulled through. I can't lose you," she said, wrapping me in her arms.


"Nina, I'm so sorry. I shouldn't have yelled at you. I'm happy for you. I just wish I knew sooner."


"I know. I'm sorry Lucy."


" I'm sorry too," a voice said from behind her. I looked around to see Niall, who was placing his phone into his back pocket, walking closer to the bed.


I gave him a small smile and began to tell him 'it's okay', when the door flew open.


I felt my breath hitch. "Liam..."


A look of happiness emerged in his eyes before he was practically running across the room, wrapping his arms around me. All I could hear him whispering into my ear was 'I'm sorry' 'don't leave me' 'I love you'














Two days later I was released from the hospital with antidepressant medicine, scars, and the number of a therapist.


Liam pulled our car into the driveway and sighed. "Dakota and Eleanor took Mia and Aiden out. I'm taking you out tonight."


"ok?" I said, getting out the car.


He walked me up to the door and grabbed my wrist, spinning me around. "I'll pick you up in 3 hours."


He pressed his lips onto mine. I closed my eyes, savoring the feeling, before he disappeared.


I walked inside and into my bedroom before I started shuffling through clothes to wear. Eventually, I settled on a white sundress with a bright pink thin belt. I paired it with my pink sparkling TOMS. I applied a light layer of foundation and some eyeliner before letting my hair down and walking out the door.


I drive to our dance studio. As I walk in, memories flood my mind. I plug my phone into the speaker and stand in the middle of the room, just listening.


'All around me are familiar faces

Worn out places, worn out faces

Bright and early for their daily races

Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses

No expression, no expression

Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow

No tomorrow, no tomorrow'


I walk out the door, the song still running through my head as I drive my car away.


'And I find it kinda funny

I find it kinda sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take

When people run in circles

It's a very, very mad world mad world'


I pull into the field and stand in the middle. The air is unusually warm for December. It's dark now and all you can see in the sky is the stars.


'Children waiting for the day they feel good

Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday

And I feel the way that every child should

Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nervous

No one knew me, no one knew me

Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson

Look right through me, look right through me'


I remember the first time Liam brought me here.


'Its the only place in London where you can see all the stars' he told me.


'And I find it kinda funny

I find it kinda sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take

When people run in circles

It's a very, very mad world ... mad world

Enlarging your world

Mad world'


"how did I know you would be here?" a voice said from behind me. I simply shrugged, not turning around to face him.


"Lucy?" I felt my head drop. "Lucy, look at me. Please"


Slowly, I turn. I raise my head and see him. He stands with a sense of longing and determination. He is wearing a pair of black slacks, a white button down shirt with a black tie. His blazer isn't buttoned but it crinkles as his hands slide into his pockets.


"what are you doing out here?" he asks me.


I shrugged. "just thinking."


He looked intently into my eyes before abruptly turning and walking back to his car. He returned with a blanket and basket. Upon laying out the blanket he opens the basket, pulling out a few candles and placing them sporadically around in the grass and lighting them. He motions for me to sit next to him. I lower myself onto the ground, careful not flash my butt to him under my short dress. 


"c'mere" he says when he sees the gap between us. I scoot closer and he pulls me down so my head is resting in his lap. I looked back up at the stars as he began playing with my hair and I started drifting into a dream.


"Lucy, what's wrong?" 


I shot my eyes open, looking into his chocolate brown ones. 


"Ever since you saw me when you woke up in the hospital... You've been quiet. It's like you don't want to talk to me anymore." he mumbled.


I sat up. It's true. It's almost as if I've become a mute.


"are you still mad that I didn't tell you?"


I shook my head no.


"Then why won't you talk to me?"


"I'm scared..." I eventually whispered.


"scared of what?"


I searched for the words to say. "I know what it feels like," I said. Confusion washed his features. "I know what it feels like to have someone just completely leave you and act like you don't exist."




"I'm scared... That you won't love me anymore." I whispered.


He was silent for a moment before he started smiling and shaking his head. I felt water fill my eyes as he stood up and walked away. I pulled my knees to my chest and let my tears roll down my cheeks. Soon I felt a warm hand grab mine and pull me up so I was standing in front of him.


"Lucy. I could never leave you. Not again. I've almost lost you Twice. And both times have made me love you more. Those events made me realize how easy it is for you to slip from my grasp and god damn it! I'm not letting it happen again. I love you too much for that." He took a deep breath before lowering himself onto one knee, still grasping my right hand.


"Lucy Marie Hanes."




He reached for his back pocket that hold his phone and quickly silences it. When he brings his hand back around he is holding a ring box. He flips it open and my left hand flies to my mouth.


"Lucy. Will you-"




He sighed and pulled his phone out.


"What Zayn?.... What? Why?... Ummmm yeah. Yeah ok. We'll be right there." and he hung up the phone. As he silently pulled me back to the car I couldn't help but wonder what happened.


"Liam?" I asked as he buckled his seatbelt. "What happened?"


He sighed and looked me in the eyes. "Niall and Nina broke up"
