27. Ouch, Bullets Hurt

Char's POV

My boys were on. I watched them smiling. Harry announced that the next song, Everything About You, would be dedicated to a special girl named Charlotte. I blushed and looked down even though no one could see me. Looking back up to watch my Hazza, I noticed a sudden movement in the crowd, distracting me. 

It was Travis.
For real. 
And he had a gun.
And it was aimed for Harry.
 I didn't care that there were thousands of people watching, I didn't care that he could kill me, I ran onto the stage to try and save the one boy that I had ever truly loved. 
I realized my mistake too late. 
I had dove at Harry because I knew Travis would soon shoot. My feet were in the air, too high. I managed to knock Harry to the ground and sighed, he was safe. 
But then I felt it. 
In my leg there was a burning pain. I was sprawled on the floor on top of Harry. I sat up and saw a bloody gash in the middle of my shin. I stared at it wide eyed. I heard a screaming and crying, looking up at the billions of girls, speechless, I realized I was the one screaming and crying. 
I slowly tried to stand but I stumbled and felt more pain, falling back to the floor, convulsing in sobs of pain. 
 Zayn and Louis ran over and picked me up and carried me off stage. I sat on the couch and wiped away the tears, clutching the armrest to avoid screaming anymore. Harry was beside me. I turned and saw that he was crying too. I tried to smile but it sorta changed into a grimace. I had my nails dug into the side of the couch by now, and an occasional scream would escape my lips. 
Never had I felt this much pain before. 
"Ambulance on the way!" Niall yelled. They all sat around me holding my hand or rubbing my back. 
"My leg is on fire! It hurts!" I whimpered. 


Harry's POV
I was shocked when she knocked me over, but then I heard the gun and realized what happened. 

I was beside her on the couch now attempting to sooth her. I couldn't imagine how much pain she was in. 
Char began shaking. I heard yelling and running. 
Before I knew it some men were lifting her onto a stretcher and loading her into an ambulance. I hopped in with her and told the boys to meet us at the hospital later. 
I just stood there staring at her. 
She was willing to give up her life for me? I felt so helpless. I watched the EMTs look at the wound and give her shots full of numbing stuff. I grew worried as her eyes shut. 


Char's POV
I was drowning again. Just like when I broke my wrist. The only problem was that both above and under the water I could feel the pain. 
My leg felt like it was burning. I whimpered a little trying to wake up. I needed pain meds, it hurt too bad. 

A few hours later, I was awake. I could tell I was in a hospital because of the boring wall papers and the multiple IV needles in my arm.  My left leg was raised and I realized what had happened. I gasped and looked around. Instantly I saw Harry in a chair beside my bed, half asleep. 
"Harry! Oh Harry! You're ok! I'm so glad! I was so worried!" I said frantically. He looked up and took my hand and pressed it to his cheek. 
"Love, you risked your life for me!" Harry said, somewhat shocked. 
I shrugged, "I'd do it again..." 
He smiled and nodded, "I would too." 
I closed my eyes and felt a kiss on my forehead. The beeping on my monitor sped up a bit I giggled as he chuckled. I pulled him close to me and kissed his lips. We moved in unison and I made him lie on the bed with me until morning. At some point, I fell asleep as he sang me a quiet lullaby. 

I woke up and I could tell that it was probably the afternoon. Harry was still next to me playing with my hair. 
"Morning--erm afternoon, love." Harry whispered into my ear. I leaned in to kiss him but pulled away because my leg felt as if it were on fire again.  
"Shit! Ow! Fu--"I yelled. 
Harry interrupted asking me what was wrong. I winced and just asked for pain meds. 
I winced again, but not from pain. Needles... Some of the longest most painful things ever. 
"I hate needles." I complained. 
"Well I hate when you're in pain, so you need them." Harry shrugged. 
"They make me in more pain. I'd rather be shot again then have fucking needles in my arms!" I frowned. 
"No. You wouldn't." Harry said seriously, as if he was saying end of conversation. 

Later that day I had on a boot. I was able to avoid a full cast, but the bullet chipped my bone. I also had a scar the size of a nickel on my leg. The doctor gave me some pills to take but said I was lucky and ok to go. 
Harry carried me to the car because I wasn't in the mood to use my crutches yet. We drove to the hotel and blasted the radio. I could tell that Harry was trying to distract me, it was working. 
Once I got into the hotel I checked my phone, three missed calls all from my mom. I sighed and called her back once we were in Harry's suite.  
"Charlotte Georgia Burke!!" She screamed. 
"Hey mom."
"I got a call telling me you were shot in the leg!" 
"Yeah... erm- well I was at One Direction's concert and so was Travis."
"Travis? That boy that hurt you? My mom asked. She didn't know how bad he had hurt me... 
"Yeah... He tried to shoot Harry, my boyfriend, so I ran on stage and saved him. I just dove wrong, my feet were too high." I sighed. 
"Honey you risked your life for a boy you barley know?!" She yelled. 
I thought about that question. I felt like she was wrong... I felt like a part of me already knew everything about Harry.
"I love him..." I said quietly. 
".... No you don't sweetie you just met." She frowned. 
"I do, arguing is pointless. How's Annie?" I changed subject, fiddling with my IV tubes. 
"Fine... She's erm- well she has had better days. Oh doctor is back! I'll talk to you later ok?"
"Ok! Bye, love you." I sighed.
I turned my phone off and glanced up to see five boys smiling at me. I walked or erm- 'crutched' over to them. I was in the middle of a huge group hug within seconds. 
"Thank you. So much." Louis whispered into my ear. 
I realized, shocked that if I hadn't knocked Harry over and risked my leg, he would be seriously hurt if not dead. I winced at the thought. I asked the boys if they would mind taking me to my house so I could get a change of clothes. 
They took me instantly without even thinking.
