One Summer (One Direction)

Annabelle has never been in love, never had her first kiss, her mother has been all she's had for a very long time. Living inside a hospital room isn't exactly the greatest way to meet people. So what happens when she meets the one person that she never wants to forget, on the last summer of her life


3. Annabelle




I didn’t often venture outside of my room, fear of meeting new people fear of being exposed to the world. I didn’t like seeing people who were just like me knowing everything they were going through I wouldn’t wish this on anyone, not even my worst enemy. Not that I’ve encountered anyone to whom would be considered as an enemy. I hate this cancerous plague that was washing away so many lives; it has broken families and shattered dreams. Our faith in a God may have been altered. This disease that takes control of our lives without punishment is one of the most horrid things that had ever existed.


“Honey, are you okay?” I didn’t realise mum was still in the room, it was nearly 11pm I had been laying still with my eyes closed for what seemed like hours forgetting the world. The medication surged through my intoxicated body, numbing the pain of existence dulling down my sense of reality. I had been lost in my own deepened thoughts unaware of my surroundings.


“Mum?” I whispered confusion in my tone. She was seated across from my bed on a padded stool. I could only see her outline as the room was pretty dark, I started to wonder how long I’d been laying there how long had she been watching me?


“Yeah baby, I’m here. Did you want the nurse?” worry thickened in the way she spoke. My heart broke every time I looked at her paled tired face.


“No, but you should go home you need to rest.”  I stumbled over my tired rambled speech, her eye lids flickered once I had reached to switch on the lamp. I felt weak but couldn’t bring myself to show it. I had only her on my mind and she needed to rest.


“I can’t leave you.” She started to tear up, so I smiled sweetly as if to prove that I would be fine without her.


“If I need you the nurses can call you, I want you to rest up and come back tomorrow. I will be fine.” I sat up despite the fact that all I wanted to do was lay down. She muttered something under her breath something I couldn’t quite translate.


“I’ll see you tomorrow; I promise I will still be here.” I laughed, I always loved having a good laugh it comforted me somehow even when everything else was going terribly wrong having laugher ringing in my ears was something I would forever cherish.


“Ok, fine but if you’re in pain you call a nurse. Do you hear me?” she turned on the mum voice, I nodded shakily as I watched her dried lips turn at their corners.


“I will.” I told her just as she leant over to kiss me on the forehead.


“Bye.” I called as she took her handbag over her shoulder and headed towards the door.


“I love you Annabelle.” She whispered in a moment of hesitation at the door.


“I love you too.” I pressed a hand to my heart, and she did the same.


“Bye baby.” She hollered quietly and the door shut behind her.
