Susie's POV

 

Picking up a jumper, I let my fingers trail over the soft black material. I unfold it and hold it at arms length; eyes assessing the size. Humming, I search the collar and underside for a price. Not finding one, I drape it over my arm and turn on the spot as I search the shop. Spotting a young girl re-arranging some dresses on a rail, I head over and politely ask her if she could tell me how much it is.
"I'll go found out for you," She smiles cheerfully and takes the jumper from my hands. As I wait for her, I take out my phone and check the time. I had an hour until I had to be back for dinner. As I go to put my phone back in my pocket, an unexpected pain shoots up my torso. Groaning in pain, I grip my stomach tightly as liquid begins to drip to the floor. 
"Oh my god," I breath shakily, looking down at the liquid beneath my feet.
"It's forty-se-" The young girl returns and rushes over to me, placing a hand on the small of my back.
"Are you okay?" She asks, worriedly, the jumper left forgotten on the floor beside her.
"I need to get to the hospital," I manage to splutter before gasping from another wave of pain. My palms begin to sweat and my vision blurs with pain and terror. 
"Wren? Is everything okay?" Another worker rushes over as the girl leads me to one of the stands holding stacks of neatly stacked and folded clothes. The other worker shoves them to the floor; allowing me to perch on the edge. I grip my stomach as the pain intensifies, letting out another groan.
"She's gone into labour, we need an ambulance!" The girl says hurriedly to the other worker, who pulls out his phone immediately. 

El's POV 

My phone vibrating in my lap draws my attention away from the conversation I was having with Zayn. Looking down, I pick it up; seeing that it's Susie's number. 
"Hey, Susie. What time are you getting back?" I ask as I answer.
"Hello, is this Eleanor Calder?" A voice that isn't Susie's asks.
"Yes..." I say indifferently, creasing my eyebrows in confusion.
"I'm Kate and I work for St. John's Ambulance. You're friends with Susie Williams?" The woman asks.
"Yes, is she okay?" I stand from the sofa, sudden panic rising within me.
"She's gone into labour. But we're currently two minutes away from arriving at the hospital." The woman proceeds to tell me which unit Susie will be in and the name of the hospital.
"Okay, thank you so much." I say quickly before putting the phone down and spinning on my heels.
"Harry!" I exclaim, causing him to look at me with confused eyes. 
"Susie's gone into labour!"
