Now Or Never

Niall and Emma got along from the day they met. Both the same age, Niall being 6 months older than Emma. They’ve known each other since they were three. The two spent every day with each other. And by coincidence they were in the same classes. They were two peas in a pod, the best of friends, almost like siblings I guess you could say. Until one day everything went downhill. As they were both 8, Emma’s mother died. In addition, her father started drinking and smoking and eventually went into depression. Emma and her father had moved from Miami, Florida to Los Angeles, California. The two inseparable were torn apart.


15. A Loved One's Revisit

~Harry’s P.O.V.~

We finally arrived at the hospital and follow the doctors in. They stopped us before they went into the operating room. “I’m sorry, you guys can’t go in there.”

Jack, Zayn, and I sat in the waiting room. Niall and Louis walked in. “Did you catch him?” they shook their heads in disappointment. “I swear if I ever see him, I’ll kill him.”

We all just sat in the waiting room filled with silence. It’s been 10 hours and it’s 4 in the morning but it feels like it’s been years. “Is there anyone here for Emma?” The surgeon asked. We all stood up and showed us to her room. She gave us a room with a bench and some chairs. We all sat down and I took the seat next to Emma’s bed.

“I’m Dr. Davies. The surgery was very successful. The wound was very deep, and she broke her foot when she fell from shock. It’ll heal in 6-8 weeks. She’s stable but she’s in a coma due to the amount of blood loss. We assume that she will be in a coma for 5 days AT THE MOST. But if we are lucky, she will come out of it late tomorrow. But if luck isn’t in our favor she may be in this state for a year or longer. I’m sorry.” She apologized. She handed us some snacks and drinks knowing we were waiting for hours. I began crying once again. I gripped her hand, not being able to stay away from her so long. Please, come back as soon as possible. “Thank you, Doctor.”

She left the room and we all made soft whimpers, comforting each other. Not too long after we drifted into our own dreams.


~Emma’s P.O.V.~
In her coma

“Harry? Harry!” My eyes began to shut and I lost sight of him. It’s dark. What’s going on? Where am I? I see the smallest light and I ran for it not caring what it is. There was a figure, a man. I think its Harry. The closer I got the further he was. I stopped. I can’t feel my legs. What’s happening? I’m scared. This is all just a dream right? No, it’s not. Your father stabbed you remember? Someone please, help me….


~Niall’s P.O.V.~
A week later

Harry hasn’t left the hospital. We have to keep bringing him food and his school work. He hasn’t been doing his school work but he’s been eating, just barely though. It’s been seven days and Em is still in a coma. Dr. Davies said 5 days at the most or a year or more. Everyone is still praying. We sleep in her hospital room everynight hoping she’s awake and smiling once we awaken from our dreams. But I’m sure in all our dreams we just see us all back in the new house laughing and talking again.


A month later

It’s been so long, and Harry is about on the edge. It’s like he is about to go into depression. I think we all are. It’s about 9 am and we all just woke up. We looked at Em, no luck. That’s when something popped into my head. A song!! “Guys, I know this is stupid but we should sing, right here and right now. There was this song her mother used to sing her whenever she got hurt, cried, or sad. It was the healing song from Tangled. She said it was short, but it was her all time most favorite song. Do you guy wanna give it a try?” I asked. “I’lll try anything.” Harry said. They all nodded in agreement. I assume they all knew the song as well. We gathered around her bed and locked hands, Harry grabbing Em’s right hand at the end of the circle and Zayn grabbing her left from the other end. We took a breather and began to harmonize softly….

Flower gleam and glow,
Let you power shine,
Make the clock reverse,
Bring back what once was mine.

Heal what has been hurt,
Change the fates design,
Save what have been lost,
Bring back what once was mine,
What once was mine.

“Guys, she’s squeezing my hand!” Harry said. “Mine, too. Let’s try it again.” Zayn said. We sang the song once again. Nothing. We just stood there hoping for her to come back.

Louis: “Come on, Em.”
Jack: “Defeat the darkness”
Liam: “We’re all waiting for you.”
Zayn: “We’re here.”
Me: “We have been.”
Harry: …. “We always will be.”


~Emma’s P.O.V~

I’ve been in this state for I don’t know how long. I miss the world, the boys…. Harry. I wanna get out and wake up but I can’t. I don’t know how to. I need something to help me out but there’s nothing to guide me…

Flower gleam and glow,
Let your power shine….

I heard the beginning to the song my mother always used to sing to me. It’s the boys. All of a sudden there’s a light with 6 figures; Liam, Louis, Niall, Zayn, Jack, and Harry. I still felt weak, my legs wouldn’t move but I had to. I pushed myself to get up and I did. I gradually made my way towards them, but something was holding me back. It was some kind of force. It was really strong. Right when I was about to give up, I saw my mother. “Mom?” The singing stopped. “Hi, baby. I’m sorry I left you and your father. I know what happened after I left. I’m sorry you had to go through that. He will pay for it, and I’ll make sure he does.” Tears began forming in my eyes. “Mama, I miss you.” I choked. “Baby, I’ll never be apart from you. You have me with you every second of the day. Hey, you still have that necklace and bracelet I gave you don’t you?” I nodded.

She gave me an infinite necklace that said ‘Infinity and Beyond’, then there was a silver bracelet that said Nankurunaisa. My mom knew Japanese but she never lived long enough for me to find out what it means. “You’re probably wondering what the bracelet means. I got it when I went to Okinawa. It means Hardship Won’t Come, Try Your Best, and Everything Will Be Alright. Everybody has different meanings for stuff and those words I will never forget, but here’s another meaning for that word… Live for today, look forward to tomorrow, and don’t forget to smile. The necklace, all it means is that there are no limits. I will be with you for an infinite time and even beyond that. That’s why I gave you that necklace. Now, I want you to fight through this dark place, they’re waiting for you. Can you hear them?”

They sang the song for the second time. “Emma, don’t forget what I said. And never give up. I love you baby girl.” Were her last words before she disappeared. “I love you too, Mama.” I wiped my eyes and took a deep breath. The song was about to end. I quickly tried to get to the boys. I felt a little more free but still restrained. The song was over, and I felt week again. No, please. Sing again. They didn’t sing but they started talking to me.

Louis: “Come on, Em.”

Jack: “Defeat the darkness”

Liam: “We’re all waiting for you.”

Zayn: “We’re here.”

Niall: “We have been.”

Harry: …. “We always will be.”


I reached them when Harry finished of his words. Finally, I’m back. Thank you, guys. And thanks, Mom…..
