18. Chapter 17

(Nina's POV)

As we were driving down the dark road, the rain began to pore harder down on to the roof of the car. Visibility was limited to less than a foot in front of the car. I dug my nails into the side of the seat, hanging on for dear life. Niall was a good driver but in this kind of weather, who knew what was going to happen. I looked over at Niall who was concentrating heavily on the road before him. He had the steering wheel in a death grip. All of a sudden I heard a loud bang and watched as the car spun away from the road. It happened so fast I didn't get a chance to scream. The car stopped in the middle of the road, facing the wrong direction. I clutched my chest as my heart threatened to beat its way out. 

"Are you okay?" He immediately asked. 

"Yes. Are you?" I asked. 

He nodded. He grunted and turned the car around. We took off again. He didn't seem fazed by what had happened because he kept going the same speed. 

"Niall maybe we should slow sown." I whimpered. 

"I'm fine. I got this." He insisted. 

The car was flying past the woods. Trees and rain shot past us. A loud boom was heard over head as the thunder and lightning sped up.  I gulped and shut my eyes. I didn't want to see. I wanted to turn all senses off. Just get through the car ride. 

"Holy shit!" Niall cried. 

I didn't dare open my eyes. I could feel the world around me spinning. Nausea crept into my stomach. Niall hadn't been worried early. And now he was. I couldn't look. As the spinning increased, I felt Niall grab my hand and I started crying. This is how I die. This is how I die. 

The words kept playing in my head. Over and over.

Then I shot forward and my whole world went black.  

************************************

My eyes fluttered open to darkness. I didn't remember what happened. There was a throbbing in my head. Then it came back in flashes. Not like they say it does. But memories of fear. And pain. I blinked a few more times, waiting for my eyes to adjust. The world came back in blurs. Blobs even. I heard a faint whimpering. I rolled my head slowly towards the sound. I saw Niall. Hunched over. Crying into his hands. I tried to call to him but I couldn't. I couldn't open my mouth. All that came out was a low whimper. His head suddenly shot up. 

"Nina? Nina! Thank god!" He yelled grabbing me up in his arms. He stroked my hair and buried his head in my shoulder. 

"I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry." He whispered. 

"Niall." I choked out. 

"I'm here." 

I slowly sat up and looked around. The car was tangled around a giant oak tree. I saw blood. I saw the trail of it to right where I was sitting. I reached up to my throbbing head and felt a wet spot right above my left eye. Then I looked down at the cut on my legs. That must have been where the blood came from. I looked Niall over and it didn't seem he had a single scratch on him. When I looked back at the car, the passenger side was the one that had gotten hit. The driver side looked untouched except for the smashed in hood.  

"Nina I am so sorry. This is all my fault." He said. 

I patted his knee and stood up from my spot. Pain shot through my leg and I fell into Niall, who immediately caught me and balanced me.

"Nina your leg."

Then I looked down at the huge gash on my thigh. It was deep and still gushing blood. I gasped and staggered back, clutching my leg. 

"Here take this, it will help." Niall said. 

He ripped off his t shirt and tied it around my cut. 

His black undershirt was soaked from the rain and he began to shiver. I wobbled my way over to him and leaned in to him, keeping close so that we stayed warm. 

"We need to find help." He said. 

"Where's your phone?" I asked. 

"It got crushed." 

"Wait. Mine is in my purse and I put in the back. Will the trunk still pop open?"

He walked to the car and reached around for the button. Surprisingly, it wasn't damaged and the trunk opened a smudge before hitting a snag. It was amazing how one side looked fine and the other was so mangled. Niall walked to the trunk and pulled with all his might. The trunk finally opened and I saw my purse contents all over the trunk. I looked around for my phone but couldn't see it. I snatched my purse and my phone was still lying inside. The one thing that had stayed in the purse and hasn't gotten wet. I immediately called 911.

"911 what's your emergency?"

"Yes. My fiancé and I were in an accident. The car is totaled and I have some pretty serious cuts. Please send help. Please."

"Ma'am is everyone involved okay?"

"Yes! But I might bleed to death so hurry!"

"Do you know your exact location?"

"No! Can't you track my call?"

"Yes ma'am. Now stay where you are. Help is on the way."

I shut my phone. And huddled with Niall on the side of the road. 

We sat in silence for a few minutes. 

"You said fiancé." He whispered. 

I looked up at him and he had his eyes closed with his head leaned back against a tree. I smiled up at him and buried my face in his chest. I felt him kiss my head and I looked up to meet his bright blue eyes. 

"I love you." He said. 

I hesitated for a minute. 

"I-I love you too." 

His lips instantly met mine and I sighed. Tingles shot through my body and I melted into his warm touch. In the distance I could hear sirens but I didn't care. I was caught in this moment. 

"Oh. I forgot." He said as he reached into his pocket.

He pulled out a small black box and my breath hitched in my throat. 

"I kind of ripped this out of your hands." He mumbled. 

He opened the box and revealed my engagement ring. He pulled it out and slipped in back on my finger. 

"It's meant to stay here." He smiled. 

The cars pulled up and the next few moments were a blur. All I could see was his face while I was rushed in to the ambulance. They began to close the doors but Niall was fighting to get inside. The guy was holding back. 

"Nina!"

"Niall! Let him in please!"  I cried. 

"Ma'am we can't." The EMT told me. 

"He's my fiancé!!"

The man sighed and waved off the guy. Niall jumped in and held my hand as we headed towards the hospital.
