Old Friends New Life (Completed)

Hello, my name is Ruby. I was best friends with Liam all throughout secondary school. Yes, THE Liam Payne. When he left at the end of year 11 to audition for X-Factor again I supported him fully. We stayed in contact for a while but in the end just kind of drifted. We haven't contacted in a year and let alone seen each other in nearly 2. Fancy running into him on the night I ran away of all nights. You see my dad died of cancer but I never told Liam. My mum was depressed and when Anthony came along he was really nice. Mum was so masked by their 'love' that she didn't listen when I told her of all the abuse he gave me. Things didn't help when he got her pregnant. I decided to run away in the end. That was enough, I couldn't cope with anything anymore. I went to the river and was standing on the bridge, about to jump...


16. What... Happened?






The annoying sound resonated in my ears and irritated me to no end. I slowly opened my eyes, with pounding in my head that felt like a buldozer was running over my brain multiple times, and was met with bright white light. Once my eyes had started to adjust, shapes became distinguishable. I slowly moved my head to the left and saw Liam sat by my... bed?... holding my hand with an expression of worry mixed with relief on his features. He smiled a little when he saw me looking at me, but all I could focus on was the fact that I was in... a hospital. As if on cue, the screams went through my head and I panicked. I could practically see the doctors coming in and doing everything they could to my sisters small frame. I screamed myself and Liam quickly got up and sat in the bed with me, pulling me tight against him. I clung to his shirt as tight as I could and he tried to sooth me. The screams got louder and I squeezed my eyes shut, trying to block them out but nothing would work. I felt Liam rock me gently from side so side and sing gently his part in 'Little Things' just like the first night I stayed with him. I relaxed a little as thise memories came back. How he held me close just like now. And all that had happened since then. So much. For starters, me becoming his girlfriend. My grip stayed tight on his shirt but he didn't seem to mind.

"Hey, Shhh. See? You're okay now." I nodded and I opened my eyes a little to see a TV in the corner on some chat show.

"What happened Liam? Why am I here? Where are the boys?" I fired questions at him and he waited patiently until I had finished.

"I'm not sure what happened love, but the doctors are trying to figure that out. I am so sorry but you are here because you need to be so we can find out what's wrong and help you. It's for the best, you'll see. And the boys are coming onto the chat show on the TV any minute, we had an interview but I insisted on staying with you. They let me but when the boys begged Paul and Charlie literally picked them up and took them." I giggled a little at the last bit and was grateful for Liam being here. My grip on him loosened a little and we turned the TV up a little louder so we could hear it as the boys appeared.

"Hello boys!" The interviewer said as they shook hands and sat down on a sofa provided. They all chorused things like 'Hello!' and 'Thanks for having us'. Liam had taught them so well. "Now, I can't help but notice there are only four of you, where is your fifth member boys?" He asked with a cheesy grin plastered on his face. The interviewer had gel covered slick black hair pushed back and a ghastly purple suit with black shoes. It was Niall who answered his question, feeling more confident in his home place.

"Liam is currently at the hospital," There were several gasps and screams from the audience so he quickly added, "Ruby, his girlfriend, was admitted just earlier today." The interviewer looked a little sympathetic as he asked,

"What's wrong?"

"We're not too sure. Doctor's are trying to figure it out but she is very sick and we would all be grateful if you would support both her and Liam at this time." Zayn answered and they all nodded in agreement. They went on to talk about the tour and their favourite songs etc. and we were interrupted by a doctor walking in just as we were laughing at Louis going bright red talking about him and Eleanor.

"Hello." The doctor said. He was a young male with light blonde hair falling over his eyes that he kepy flicking back, and in a white coat and scrubs. He had bright blue eyes almost as bright as Louis'. "I see you are awake now." He stated and Liam shifted uncomfortably as if he was about to sit up but my grip on his shirt tightened again as I thought of the many doctors who couldn't save my sister.

"Hey, he's here to help you." He murmered in my ear and then turned to face the doctor again. "Do you know what happened doc?" The doctor looked surprised at Liam's confidence and stuttered a little before answering him.

"We are currently still trying to figure that out. The X-Rays we did to make sure she didn't hurt herself in the fall came back clear, well done for catching her, but the blood results are still yet to be processed so I will bring you news as soon as we have them and hopefully we can get you on the road to recovery." He turned to face me and I buried my face in Liam's shirt.

"She doesn't like hospitals, bad experience or something." Liam explained and I pictured the doctor nodding as I heard his footsteps retreat from the room.

"I want to leave Liam." I moaned and Liam just kissed my forhead.

"I know you do baby, but we have to find out what is wrong because I don't want you to be in any pain and I want you to get better. I can't stand not being able to do anything and if I were to lose you I don't know what I would do. So stay? For me?" Liam begged. I noddded my head slowly and he smiled encouragingly. We relaxed back into the pillows and returned out attention to the TV as we waited for the boys to get here as the interview had finished. My eyes started to droop at the effort of staying awake, and I fell asleep in Liam's arms, praying that I wouldn't be in a hospital much longer.




Someone was prodding me. I could feel the rhythmic poke on my arm every couple of seconds. Moaning I turned over in Liam's arms and let my face be buried into his shirt.

"Louis stop it." I heard him say. Well that explained that then. "How are you feeling, love?" My stomach did little flips like it always did when Liam called me 'love' and I smiled, finally opening my eyes to see his heart melting, warm, brown ones. My smile didn't last long and faltered as a wave of naustea hit me. Liam skilfully and quickly reached under the bed, coming back out with one of those weird cardboard bowl things, just in time for me to be sick in. I leant forward and he held the bowld in one hand as the other rubbed my back soothingly. Once I finished Zayn handed me a paper towel and I wiped my mouth, embarrassed.

"So you're doing great then!" Louis said and Niall hit him in the arm. I giggled a little and he smiled warmly at me. At that point the doctor walked in with a chart and a frown in his face. I was worried, especially when I looked up and he plastered a fake smile on his face. All eyes turned to him and Liam held me a little tighter in his grip.

"So we have your results back, and I would like to give them to you but only family are aloud to stay." Four hesitant and reluctant boys stood up and slowly walked out the door leaving me and Liam. The doctor looked unconvinced but didn't push it none the less. "Okay," He pulled up a chair and sat at the end of the bed facing me and Liam. "The blood results came back a little earlier and I can tell you I know what's wrong. There are two things actually..."The first is that we have found fluid around one part of your brain and creating pressure." Me and Liam gasped and I could tell he was trying to be string for me as I clutched to him for dear life, but a single tear still slid down his cheek. "Luckily we have caught it early so a quick procedure will relieve the pressure and remove the liquid before you can be left with any serious damage." He visibly sighed and relaxed, but I was still concentrated on the 'two things' and the fact that we had only had one...

"What's the other one?" I asked tentatively. The doctor turned to me and Liam tensed again.

"Well Miss, you are
