45. The Other Paige

Niall's POV

 

The five of us sat around the kitchen table, calling various contacts. We were looking for her. I knew that I fucked up, but she didn't know the entire story, she didn't get the fact that I didn't do anything... 

My thoughts were interupted when Zayn's phone began to ring. 

"Hey, babe." He answered immediately, we all let out the tension built up over the chance it was her. Zayn talked with Perrie, but seemed to be stunned by whatever she was saying. Zayn demanded details and he looked up at us, giving a small nod. That small gesture gave us all a bit of hope that we would find her.

"She called Perrie around thirty minutes ago and hasn't shown up there yet." Zayn announced to us, we all got into one of the cars and sped away to around where Perrie lived. Liam's phone was the next to go off. We all looked at him, but he shut the screen and put it back in his pocket. It was some unknown number. 

Three more times that number called until I grabbed the phone out of annoyance and answered it.

"What?" I groaned into the speaker. 

"SHE'S HURT! ST. WILLIAMS BRIDGE. COME NOW." A voice screamed over the line. Everyone in the car jumped in shock. 

"Paige?" I asked, the voice sounded like hers... but also different.

"NO. SHE'S HURT. GET HERE NOW." The voice demanded. Zayn pulled a UTurn, knowing where this bridge was and letting us know it would be about five minutes if we sped. 

"Who is this?" I asked into the phone, clutching onto it for dear life, praying that Paige was alright. 

"You saved me...?" A new voice mumbled. It was Paige. I knew that in an instant no matter how weak and hurt she sounded. 

"Shhh. It's alright, Paige." The mysterious girl answered, forgetting about us. 

"You always were the sporty twin, I was secretly jealous of that." A very dizzy Paige said. 

Twin? All of us looked at each other, baffled, except Liam. 

"Maddie?" He asked.

 

 

Maddie's POV

Seeing her fall was the worst thing I had ever experienced, yeah and I pretty much died so that's saying a lot. I didn't know what to do as she yelled my name over and over, but then out of nowhere stopped because she plunged into the water. Out of instinct, I took off my sweatshirt and then ran off the bridge to an easier access spot where I dove in blindly. 

I had no idea what I was doing or how I was managing to stay afloat, but eventually I found an uncouncious Paige. With all my will power, I dragged her out of the water with difficulty due to the heavy current. 

Then I fished out her cell and hacked into her contacts. C'mon she had to have his number... she had to. BINGO. Liam. Her phone was filled with water and refused to let me dial, so I managed to call the number from the pay phone. Some guy with an Irish accent picked up, sounding very irratated. 

"What?" He snapped. I couldn't help myself, all at once I lost it. I screamed out that she was hurt and that we needed help. I screamed out where we were and what time it was. I refused to take the time to explian who I was, but then I heard Liam's tiny whisper of my name. 

"Yeah, I'm back." I sighed, glancing nervously at Paige who was now semi concious and seemed to have issues keeping her eyes open. 

"Eyes open, P. Eyes open." I instructed. 

Despite everything going on, she laughed and argued in a small mumble, "I always hated that nickname, it only got harder to hate it when he started to call me that." 

Whoever 'he' was, I had no idea. All I knew was that Paige wasn't doing well... she needed help, fast. 

 

"Maddie?" She whispered, her voice breaking as she began to fade away into unconcious.

"Hey, sweetie, what's up?" I answered instantly, squeezing her hand.

"Don't squeeze my hand... He did that too much." Paige shook her head nervously. 

"Who is this guy you keep talking about?" I asked nervously. 

"He's ah... well...was my boyfriend." Paige mumbled small things, trying to stay concious.

"Was?"

"He cheated..." She whispered, tears starting to well up in her eyes and a frown forming on her face.

"It's ok, honey. I'm here." I promised, praying that I she would be ok.

"PAIGE!" Some guys screamed, one wrapping me into a massive bear hug from behind. I wiggled out of his grip and turned to face five very confused guys.

"You're not Paige..." The one who hugged me whispered. 

"No, the person on the park bench in front of me is." I rolled my eyes. 

Whoever this guy was smirked and said, "She does that too... with her eyes." 

"They shut a few seconds ago."

Instantly all joking was put aside and the boys ran over in front of Paige's body. I could pick out Liam, although it did take me a second with his lack of hair. They were calling people on their phones, ignoring my protestests saying that I already called officals. 

In no time a freakin emergency helicopter showed up in the park, search lights on and pointed at us. A group of paramedics got out and lifted Paige up, taking her to be worked on. Only Liam and I were allowed on since we were immediate family despite the Irish guy's desperate pleas to accopany her. 


"Who the hell is the leprechaun?" I blurted out once Liam and I were in the helicopter. He was staring at me plainly, almost as confused as Paige had been. 

"H-his name's Niall... I'm in a band with him. He is-was Paige's boyfriend." Liam finally said, shaking himself awake.

"She was talking about him... complete nonsense." I sighed. Liam was still watching me intently.

"You're supposed to be dead..." He whispered, reaching out at me like I would disappear. 

"I know, but I'm not. I fell into a comma and mum kept me with life support because I was still somewhat responsive to it. I woke up about six months ago, but I had to go to therapy and such to get caught up and relaxed." I shrugged.

"All this time... We thought you were gone." Liam whispered. 

"I'm sorry." 

"Don't be, it's not your fault." 

"It sorta is... I shouldn't have come back." I sighed.

"How did Paige fall?" Liam changed subject. I told him the entier story verbatum, his eyes widening with each detail I provided. Liam couldn't even speak, he just pulled me into a hug, making my charm bracelet jingle against his back. 

"We missed you." Liam whispered. 

With that the conversation ended, and we just sat there praying. The people around us were working like crazy, giving her medicine and wraps and ice and Xraying stuff. I watched in horror at the screen as an image of Paige's body appeared on screen. It wasn't that she was hurt, because she wasn't... not too bad anyway. The breaks were all minor, but the possibility of brain damage seemed to be a high risk. It's going to be ok. I tried to sooth myself over and over, failing completely. I resulted to crying because that's all my body could manage. Life was now an actual living hell...
