Soul Siren (OneDirectionFanFiction:HarryStyles/OC)

She was the winner of The X Factor Philippines. It was the only detail we were told about the artist that was lined up to be the opening act for our upcoming world tour. Simon made it clear that we don’t Google her even before we get to meet her, let the girl introduce herself to us so to make her more interesting to work with. We can’t help but get curious of course. What made her so special that Simon was so interested and invested with this certain local artist and get her signed to work with a huge name like us, One Direction?

None of us expected that the artist we’ll be working with would somehow clash with our happy-go-lucky personalities. We were not told that the girl had a very bittersweet past and that her life was not all about fame and fortune after she won The X Factor a year ago.

We didn’t expect that we will meet someone like Makie Romero, a soul siren.

19. Don't You Forget About Me

I have never been terrified of hospitals, not until now.

 

The only sound that echoed all throughout the white walls of the hospital room were the faint heart beats coming from the monitor with wires linked at Makie’s body. Every beat comes off in such soft –almost inaudible- slow painstaking pattern.

 

It made me more scared of where I was.

 

I was tired. My stomach has been grumbling. I probably looked like a walking dead. My eyes were red and heavy lidded; I haven’t had a wink of sleep for the last twenty four hours I spent in the hospital watching over her. I just sat there close to Makie’s bed, watched her and prayed almost every second that she would finally open her eyes and call someone, preferably me.

 

It was only when I heard the door creaked open and immediately shut again that my head turned around, only to see a distraught Andie walking towards me. “Hey,” she greeted in a low sadden tone. The dark circles that formed under her eyes were much visible, her brown beads glassy like she just cried a while ago. I wonder what was going through her mind. By the looks of it, she was more stressed than I was with what happened to Makie.

 

“Hey, are you okay?” I asked, honestly without even thinking. Of course she’s not okay.

 

Her eyes darted from Makie’s unconscious body and then back to meet mine. I scooted over to have some space on the couch and just pulled her arm so she can sit next to me. Her arms were shaking. She looked warily at me and answered, “I don’t feel okay,” Andie was lost for a few seconds before she continued, “That’s a stupid question to ask. Harry, are you okay?” she backfired.

 

At least her wit is still with her.

 

I just dodged her question. “How did you get here? Is Vanessa with you?”

 

“Vanessa’s in a press conference right now. They’re making a statement about Makie’s condition and the criminal charges filed for Taylor and Sabina.” Andie explained.

 

Both names made me cringe of hatred.

 

“So you went here all by yourself?” I asked.

 

“Actually, Niall’s with me. I told him it is probably better if I took a cab myself but he insisted to drive me here. And he wanted to see how Makie’s doing too. He’s still outside trying to come up with ideas how he’ll pass the paparazzi in the lot without getting mobbed and questioned.”

 

“Did they see you?”

 

“Well, thankfully no one recognized me as the girl who got slapped by Taylor Swift. Might be because I don’t look red carpet ready and not in a ridiculous Gucci dress.” She said flat lined.

 

How can I forget?  Makie was physically harmed that got her in this state, but Andie –she’s been called with insulting names and was slapped entirely by someone she didn’t know just because she was trying not to stoop in the level of shame. Andie was hurt emotionally, yet she’s being brave not to show it to me.

 

Andie’s gaze fell on her trembling hands in her lap. “I was supposed to take care of her. It’s my job.”

 

“Please, don’t blame yourself,”

 

Makie was right. She affects not only me, but also Andie.

 

Andie shook her head and said, “Makie didn’t need to fight for me. It was my job to keep her away from those people who wanted to hurt her.”

 

“But you were hurt too Andie.” I told her.

 

“Being called a homeless rat and ugly was the least of my worries.” She muttered back to me.

 

Remembering how Taylor and Sabina’s words come straight from her mouth was heartbreaking.

 

“If anything happens to her, I… -oh my god,” She wasn’t able to go on. Muffled sobs resurfaced from her throat and she immediately dissolved in to tears next to me.

 

It didn’t take any second thoughts of wrapping my arms around Andie and let her bury her tear streaked face in my chest as she cried on. She never deserved to be less treated in any way. “I have my whole faith in Makie. She’s done it before, she’ll overcome this one. She’ll wake up soon. Everything will be fine.”

 

“Please look at me,” I brushed the tears in her cheeks and said, “Andie, you’re beautiful –and I also meant you’re prolific vocabulary is somehow fitting to being beautiful. They’re just jealous of you. I bet you didn’t see it last night, but you got men turn their attention to you. I saw guys stop and stare at you. And yes, I’m talking about Niall and Louis. They were astonished when they both saw you last night but was just too tongue tied to tell themselves. Did you know you were the only one who got them shut?”

 

Thankfully, it made her smile.

 

“Might I just add that you’re really pretty when you smile? Makie herself made that compliment. She loves to see you when you’re happy, so turn that frown upside down. You don’t know you’re beautiful.” Andie instantly threw her head and laughed at the classic pun. Then straight faced, I added, “Though I still highly condone Louis’ attraction for you. He seems to really like you but the silly crush must not progress into a hook-up.”

 

Andie scoffed back. “Me? Hook-up? Honestly, you think I’ll hook-up with Tomlinson? He is a prick.”

 

Half a heart, at least we’re smiling through this. “Aha! I knew it! You’ll do Niall instead.” I joked.

 

Suddenly, I got shoved in the chest before Andie exclaimed, “Oh, fuck it! I forgot Niall! That leprechaun could be dead by now!”

 

But even before Andie could leave, a mortified looking Niall barged in the room, making Andie and I jump of surprise. “That hell of a crowd outside was worse than the one last night. I was worried you couldn’t get inside safely. Thank goodness you didn’t get harassed!” Niall took the surprised little woman into his arms and hugged her. He proceeded on giving Andie a quick peck on her flushed cheek. She was instantly frozen with Niall’s boldness while I saw a grin resurfaced on his face.

 

Oh I see what you did there, Horan.

 

Niall kept it cool, “So, how’s Makie?” he asked as he still had his arms over Andie’s shoulder. And it looks like he’s not planning on letting her slip away at all. Both of Niall and Andie’s little interaction somehow lightened up the mood in the room. Someone looks happy to be in the hospital room.

 

“She hasn’t stirred to consciousness yet. But the doctor who checked on her this morning said not to worry at all. Her vital signs are normal.” I told them.

 

“But why is she still unconscious? She’s not gone to comatose, I hope so?”

 

It was only when Niall mentioned about ‘comatose’ that I remembered about Makie’s past condition.

 

What if Makie goes into another state of comatose? Is that possible? What if she wakes up after fourteen months again and does not remember anything, her name, her new life with us, or even all my feelings for her?

 

What if she forgets about me?

 

Oh no.

 

“No, she won’t. Don’t worry. The doctors said there’s no head injury, just some abrasions and bruises but nothing serious to rule out any chance of comatose. Makie will soon be okay.” Andie explained, directly at me.

 

Still I can’t help but to worry. All of these ‘what ifs’ inside my head right is slowly killing me inch by inch.

 

“Harry, maybe you should take some rest. Andie and I will watch over Makie today. The lads said they’ll come here later if they pass Paul. He’s gone mental if you must know. Won’t let us go anywhere without security after what happened last night.” Niall suggested.

 

“I can’t leave Makie.” I told him back immediately. I’m not planning of resting not until I see Makie wake up.

 

“But seriously Harry, you look like you need some sleep.” the lad insisted.

 

Andie cut in and suggested, “How about Niall and I get you something to eat first? It looks like you haven’t eaten anything since last night.”

 

The loud grumble of my stomach answered for me. Both of them just smirked at me before Andie inched herself away from Niall for a second just so she could wrap her arms around my neck and whisper, “Harry, please take some rest. Don’t think too much, okay? We’ll be back shortly.”

 

I watched Andie and Niall leave the room –his pale cheeks quickly went beat red when Andie intertwined her hands with his and pulled him out of the room. I made a mental note to remind me later corner one of them to do some explaining of what’s with the sudden cutesy act with one another.

 

If Makie was just awake, she’d see it too and gang up with me to joke about Niall and Andie. We’ll be laughing about it, just act like normal and be happy that our friends are finally getting along with each other. Makie and I would probably plot about something crazy for the both of them. Then when it becomes successful, we will sort out how we’ll do with our relationship and maybe finally plan about our life together.

 

A happy life together with the girl I’ve always wanted, it was everything I hoped for.

 

But how am I supposed to do it now if our future depends with if she’ll remember.

 

What if she doesn’t remember anything about Harry Styles?

 

I had nothing left to do but stare at Makie, completely oblivious of what’s happening to the world around her. Once again, it was only me, Makie, and the faint sound of her heart beating from the monitor that tortured the burble cloud inside the whole room.

 

I’ve tried with every force left in me not to be pessimistic with the chances of what could happen. It will not only affect with how I go through this, but also Makie. I don’t want her to feel that I’m giving up this way. She’ll not want me to do this.

 

My skin still felt every lingering touch she magically made in it. My lips were still warm of the few shared kisses we not-so-secretly had last night –on that one beautiful moment when we didn’t care about anything or anyone who’d see us.

 

Us –I want to hear Makie’s sweet voice say it again.

 

My hands traveled to where her motionless hand laid flat, traced her cold sot skin, every contour on the back of her palm and her tiny fingertips just so to channel within her the warmth my hands could give that very moment. I felt it was the only way to make her feel I haven’t left her and I’ll stay up until she comes back to me. I wished she’d hold me back, just like before, -when she finally decided to stay and hold on with me.

 

I placed one soft butterfly kiss on her pale cheek, something I wasn’t accustomed to see. She always seemed bright and blushing whenever I see her face, but now her face was just dull and I didn’t like it at all.

 

As I moved my lips near her ear, I carefully brushed some strands of her soft brown locks before I whispered the delicate words to her.

 

“Please Makie, don’t you forget about me.”

 

END NOTES:

 

I know this is a bit boring chapter, but please be patient with me. There's a lot going on with me right now, but I promise I'll double the work next chapter and it will be better. :)

 

Again, thank you so much for sticking with me and Soul Siren. I love you all! .xx

 

P.S.

I know it's a bit late, but last chapter I was asked how would I describe Sabina Fines. I did mention a bit of her character on chapter 13 but then I did not really told much about her appearance that's probably why she's not that clear to all of you. So...

 

Alexis Knapp as Makie Romero (I know she's not Filipina lookin but I love her so much, so... hee. :P)

 

Katie Leung as Andie Tiu
