I'll Fight Forever

"Anna, come look at this, I think you'll like this." I walked around the couch and sat next to my mother carelessly. What could make a girl like me happy?
"What?" I said groaning. She handed me the news paper. I looked at the title on the page, 'Sing for the Sick'. "Okay so what?" I said, not really caring.
"One of those boy bands are coming to town to sing to kids like you." Kids like me?
"I think I'll pass this time mom." I said handing back the newspaper.
"You've been stuck in two places that none of us enjoy, it's no longer a choice if you go or not."
I took the news paper back from her. "If I'm going, I at least want to know who I'm going to see." I read threw the article quickly. And for some reason I felt a little excited. One Direction was coming to town.

9. Chapter Seven

(Anna's POV)

I woke up, with warm arms wrapped around me. I still felt really hot. I felt something wet on my head, and I brought my hand up to it, and took it off to find a wash cloth. It was cold but it felt good. I left it there and looked up to see Niall. He was awake, and his baby blue eyes were sucking me in. "You have a good rest?" He asked.

"Yeah I feel a lot better thank you." Niall smiled and kissed the top of my head. I touched my chest where my chemo tubes were. And I was no longer hooked up to the fluid machine.

"Your doctor came in and told you, you could go home whenever."

"Good I want to get out of here." I said groaning as I rubbed my eyes.

"He said he needed to talk to you first though." Niall said. Of course the surgery.

"You see that button on the bed handle by your head?" I said looking at the red button. "Press it." Niall pressed on it, and it made a soft beeping noise outside of my room. "Thanks." A few minutes later the doctor came in. "You can stay in here if you want to." I told Niall.

"Okay." Niall said rubbing my arm softly as we still laid in my hospital bed together.

"Okay Anna, so." He took the clipboard from the edge of my bed. "We're going to have your surgery on Friday of this week."

"What kind of surgery?" Niall said confused, because I hadn't told him about anything.

"But I have homecoming, I can't." I said, Niall and I both looked at my doctor.

"If we do it any later it could grow larger, and it takes a certain about of time to prepare you for the surgery."

"But I can't miss homecoming I'm the homecoming queen."

"Anna if you miss this, you could be in the hospital for the rest of your life, or you might not ever survive cancer. I can't keep these certain surgeons here, their just visiting and their the most recomended surgeons in Newcastle."

"So if I don't have the surgery I'm going to die, sounds great."

"Don't say that." Niall said, and his jaw tensed.

"You have a lower risk of dieing if we do the surgery on Friday." The doctor put the clipboard back away. "Anna I'm sorry you had plans, but cancer is never fair to any patient."

I felt tears threatening me. Niall pulled me close to him as I cried. I heard my more door open, but I didn't look up to see who it was. "Anna?" I let go of Niall's shirt, that I was grasping on tightly to. I softly pulled my face away from Niall's chest to see Chloe standing by the door. "Your mother told me." Chloe came around the bed and pulled me into a hug. "It's gonna be okay, you still have prom."

"I've missed out on everything Chloe, all the dances, Volleyball-." I stopped myself. "I could've made it to all of them." I said, and I just cried even more. I felt Chloe pull away from me.

"Oh my god is that Niall Horan?" I felt awkward as she looked at Niall. Niall just laid there looking at Chloe and I. "Oh my god Anna, what the hell?!" She looked angry, surprised, and happy, all in one emotion. "Oh my freaking god!" She came around the bed and hugged Niall, and Niall softly patted her back.

I took my blanket and buried my face in them. And the next thing I know I'm in the bathroom with the door locked holding a depressant pill in my hand. "Why?" I whisper. Niall's knocking on the door trying to have a conversation with me.

"Hey Anna maybe we can go to the park later." He says, I don't respond. I stare at the mirror looking at myself. White Lips Pale Face I placed the pill on my tongue as I took a drink of water and swallowed. "Have you ever gone to Ireland before?" Niall was coming up with some really weird things to talk about, but I couldn't think straight. Was he really worried for me?

I looked at the mirror and frowned. I clenched my fist, and locked my jaw. I closed my eyes tightly as I swung my fist around and slammed my hand in contact with the mirror. I felt instant pain, and nothing but it. "Anna!" I heard Niall yell as I heard a loud pounding. I dropped to my knees and clenched my fist with my other hand. Pain, good pain.

Then doctors came into my room, like every time I do something wrong. Take to many depressant pills, punch a mirror, have a coughing fit, puke, bleed, get sick, puke blood.

I felt numbness again. My world was dizzy. Niall looked at me as he stroked my hand that I didn't punch a mirror with. My mother came running into the room. "Oh my lord Anna." She said as she looked at my knuckle which had been wrapped with gauze. I didn't speak. "Anna we're going to get you help." She said stroking my hair.

But then I blacked out.

*Friday Night after Surgery*

"How are you feeling Anna?" I didn't know how I felt. I felt numb. I felt dull.

"I feel nothing." I looked around the room, my family here to see how the surgery went.

"Your surgery was a success, and your tumour is gone." I didn't smile, but the everybody else did. Niall said he couldn't come because he had an interview, but he was leaving soon, leaving me soon. And we had become really close. Everyday before the surgery he took me out for a date, but I felt like my life kept on revolving around the hospital. My brother came and sat down by me, and he grabbed onto my hand that wasn't wrapped in gauze.

I still hadn't told anybody about Niall, but I think my mom has figured it out that I'm growing a relationship with one of the most famous people in the world. And I'm not to sure she likes it. Kat and Louis on the other hand have already kissed. I guess I'm just a tiny bit jealous.

After visiting hours were over, everybody went home so it was just My mom, my father, and my brother. "Are you excited you finally get to go home Sunday!" My mother said rubbing my arm.

"Yeah." I said, with a not to enthusiastic voice.

"Okay well we're going to head home baby, we'll see you tomorrow." My father said, and I just nodded my head, and they all came and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

After the lights were shut off in my room, I stayed completely still. Shouldn't I be happy? I'm finally cancer free? I reached my arm over and turned on the lamp, groaning a little because it hurt to breath. I heard the door open then. I looked over, and alls I could see was a black figure. "Anna?" I recognized who it was when he pronounced the first letter of my name.

"Cancer free." I said with a smile, my dry lips not letting me smile as much as I wanted to, but just enough so Niall could see the white on my teeth. Niall came and laid down next to me. "You know visiting hours are over right?"

"The nurse le me in, and she said you'd been waiting to see me since you woke up."

"I can't lie, it's true." I said giving a soft laugh.

"You hurt a lot don't you?"

"Yeah." I said my voice almost a whisper.

"I'm sorry I couldn't be here sooner, I couldn't get away from the boys, I think their starting to figure it out."

"That you're hanging out with the sick girl?" I said looking at him, his baby blue eyes were like ocean water washing over me and taking me away. I didn't know what it was about his eyes. But they showed me how much he actually cared for me and it made me happy.

"You're not sick anymore." He said intertwining his fingers with mine.

I pulled my hand away. "Niall, you're leaving." I said, feeling horrible for pulling my hand away. "I don't want to start anything, and then say goodbye." I felt my eyes water, and it felt good not to be so numb, I felt more alive.

"Then don't." I was confused. "Come with me on tour."

I made a slight laugh. "Niall I have to graduate, now that I'm not sick, I have to focus on school." Niall leaned in and put his arm around me, and I laid my head on his chest. "But I just want you to know how badly I want to."

We sat there in silence for so long, before I finally broke out into tears and cried into his chest. I was sick of losing everything.

 

(Niall's POV)

It was early in the morning, and Anna had cried herself to sleep while I sang to her. I walked out of the hospital and called a taxi. When I got back to the hotel, my eyes were puffy and red. And I was tired. All the boys were sitting at the couch. "You said you were coming back to the hotel before midnight." Harry said.

"Yeah, well change of plans." I said laughing as I took off my coat and threw the hotel card onto the table.

"The management called and asked where you were, all of us were worried Niall." Liam said chipping in to take Harry's side.

"I'm not a little boy, I can take care of myself." I hung my hat and looked at them with arms crossed across my chest.

"We're a band Niall, and you need to be apart of it." Harry said standing up and walking up to me.

"I'm in the band, I went to the interview stop making this a big deal." Harry looked angry.

"We're leaving early, tomorrow morning."

"Okay, good I never liked coming here anyways." I saw Louis look at me, and he looked sad. He ran his fingers through his hair. Harry hit my shoulder, breaking the contact between Louis and I.

"Maybe you should get some sleep." Harry said before walking away. After Harry walked away, I walked into Louis's room and laid down on his bed.

"I don't want to leave." He said, and I'd never seen him so unhappy. Louis was always the upbeat guy in our group, and Liam was usually controlling. But Harry is getting way up into Louis and I's business and it's really starting to make me mad.

"I finally think I'm falling in love with somebody and then I have to let go."

"The down points of being famous."

"No, the down points of having Harry in a band."

"I'd agree, even though he's my bud." Louis said.

"Maybe he's just jealous." Louis looked confused. "You know with Taylor and all, he really liked her for a while."

"Maybe." There was a pause, and all I could think about was Anna. She needed me. I was the one thing that was holding her up. She even said so herself, the night before her big surgery.

*Thursday Night*

Anna was sat down next to a tree in front of the hospital, watching the busy streets. I sat down next to her and pulled her on top of my so she was sitting on my lap. She laid her head on my shoulder. "If I could, I'd make time go slower." She said, choking on her tears.

"But then you'd be sick longer."

She paused, before speaking. "You're right." She grabbed onto my hand and intertwined our fingers. "But I'd get to be with you longer."

"I don't know what I'm going to do without you, you've changed me so much." I rubbed her hand softly. "You showed me what loves really like, you've showed me how important and short life is."

"Niall as if I could change a life, look at you." She turned and and looped her legs around my waist while we were still sitting on the ground. "You're one of the greatest singers in the world, you change lives everyday, you've changed mine." Tears came to her eyes. "Without you, I've got nothing but medication to hold me up." I pulled her into a hug. "I don't want you to leave."

*Present Time*

"I'm not leaving, or I'll take Anna with me and she can go on tour with me."

"I already asked Kat, and she said she couldn't because she had school." Louis got up and went to start his shower.

"Anna said the same thing."

"We're going to have to figure out a way to move on." Louis said, packing some of his stuff.

"I'm not moving on, Anna is the first girl I've laid eyes on that I've actually enjoyed having a relationship with." Louis looked at me with concern. "You have Eleanor that you could go back to, she falls for you so easily, but I have nobody to run to. If I leave Anna she'll find somebody else." I felt my eyes water, but I refused to let myself cry.

"Niall just get over it man."

"No! Now you sound like Harry!" I got up and ran out of his room I grabbed my hat by the door and open the door. Making sure I slammed it loud enough for everybody to hear.
