He Is My Escape

It took Charlie years, to figure out what actually happened. When she did, she could not believe it. Why did her father keep her from the world? What was his secret? She never went to school. She was street smart. She moved every month. She didn't even bother unpacking anymore. She sees her father do the unthinkable. She is in shock. She has to get away. Before anything happens to her. But will she be able to escape?

16. Just Leave ..

Nialls POV:

My hands begin to tremble as I enter the hospital doors. This is a huge thing. She hates me now. The bouquet of flowers, turned out to be a hundred roses. I’m not even exaggerating when I say 100. Counted and picked out by myself. Not to mention Marissa criticizing every single thing that I do.

                I take a deep breath and step into the room. Her bloodshot eyes stare deeply into mine. She had been crying, and even worse, once again tears filled her eyes. And were threatening to spill over.

                “Char, I am so sor-“ I begin

                “Don’t you dare say sorry to me. I trusted you. I thought you were always going to be by my side. That you would never leave me. Is something wrong with me? Because the only time I begin to trust someone something bad always happens. Marissa is the only one I can trust. I swear. Nobody loves me. I don’t even like myself anymore. Cancer has ruined me. Like it was really shallow for you to leave. But coming back with flowers expecting me to welcome you back with open arms? No. Get something in your head other than air.” Charlie spoke. Her voice raising with every word she would say.

                “Fine Charlie. You don’t have to forgive me but just hear me out. I ran out because I didn’t want you to see me cry. You don’t know how badly I want to be strong. No, I actually need to be strong. Charlie I love you so much, and I didn’t think that I would find my princess but I did, and it is the most amazing feeling in the world. And now with every word, that you say, about how terrible I am, how I hurt you, my life is tumbling down. My heart is shattering into a million pieces. But please just remember that I will love you until the last rose dies” I spoke, not caring to hide the tears. They stream down my face racing with one another. I take a step forward and place the Roses on the table beside her.

                “I love you” That was the last thing I said to her, as I walked out the doors.

 

Charlie’s POV:

                Weeks have passed, and my life has turned gray. Marissa visits me daily, and she has been amazing, I missed her so much, but as each day passes, my heart aches even more. All the roses have died. All but one. He gave me 99 real roses. I watched them, as the petals wilted. As the colors contrasted into brown. I watched as the petals soared down towards the cold, hospital floor. Tears fill my eyes whenever the nurses come in to sweep up his dying love. But one rose remains. A wooden rose. It would last forever. It truly hurts me even more when I think about him saying that he will love me till it dies, but it never will.

                “Charlie. You have to eat. You haven’t eaten in over a month, and it’s taking the life right out of you.” Marissa’s voice fills with concern, breaking the silence that always happens.

                “There is no reason to eat. I’m going to die anyways.”

“But you’ll die sooner! Can’t you see you’re letting depression take over your life?! Niall would hate you doing this to yourself!” My eyes widen at the sound of his name. Nobody has brought him up. Not since he walked out.

“Have you ever thought that I miss him? I cannot live without him! I don’t even want to try! I love him okay? So much. He hasn’t come back. It breaks me. I know I told him I didn’t want him to but I thought that he would at least try. I cry myself to sleep. You are amazing Marissa. But I need him here! Not you. I love having you here, but you can’t fill that emptiness that sits in my heart. It hurts. It hurts so fucking much” I break down crying. Sobs fill my throat. My cries come out shaky. Tears stream down my face. I keep crying not bothering to look up. It has been a solid hour. I’m still shaking and I am still choking on my tears. Somebody’s arms wrap around my tiny torso, that hasn’t acknowledged food, for a month. I look up to see Niall with tears threatening to spill.

“Charlie.” He breathes. His voice shaky.

Without saying anything in return I crash my lips to his, taking in his attendance. My heart explodes with fireworks that were missing during his absence.
