“Do you think I’ll ever come back… like for real?” I ran my hand over Niall’s cheek and watched him close his eyes and lean in to me. A smile formed on his lips, and I sighed, knowing he wasn’t able to see the smiles I sent him every time he was here.

“I don’t know… I hope so” His smile was replaced by a frown and I nuzzled my face in the hook of his neck.

“I miss Harry… and the other lads of course.” I sniffled as tears were threatening to spill. The words left my mouth faster than I expected “and I miss you Niall” I felt tears in the corners of my eyes as I wrapped my arms around his torso.

“I’m right ‘ere babe and I’m not leavin’ yha, I promise” I felt his heart beat rapidly against my back and I was so grateful for having him with me right now. It was so frustrating being like this, never knowing what was going to happen next. I could wake up any second, but I could also stay like this forever, or at least until the doctors chose to give up on me. I shook my head, afraid of my own thoughts.

“What if I never wake up Niall?” the question scared me, but it was a possibility and I had to face reality.

“Don’t think like that… we can make it if we try, you and I” I felt my heart ache at his words. He always seemed to say the right words at the right time.

I was about to answer when we were interrupted. Niall flew up from the chair as the door opened and I screeched as I hit the floor.

“Charli, oh me god, I am so sorry” Niall stood over me and reached his arms out unsure how to help me.

“What’s going on?” Niall and I froze at the sound of Harry’s slow and rusty voice. He closed the door behind him gently and I watched as his head tilted a bit to the side, confusion clear in his eyes.

Niall thought for a moment before turning around and facing Harry.

“Uhm… I… It was… I… nope, I have no explanation right now” he ran his hands through his hair as I chuckled at his cuteness.

“Don’t yha laugh at me” Niall grinned and pointed a finger directly at me, making me laugh even more.

“You’re just so cute when you mumble like that” I got up and watched as Niall blushed slightly.

“Who are you talking to?” Harry stepped forward and crossed his arms, waiting for an explanation. Niall opened his mouth to talk but closed it again, reconsidering what to say. He walked over to the bed and I watched him caress my cheek. I closed my eyes and felt it. I felt his fingers run over my pale cheek and I lost my breath completely.

“Are yha okay with this?” Niall raised his brows, waiting for my permission.

“Tell him Niall, he deserves to know” we couldn’t keep this from Harry. He was my best friend, and he needed to know that I was still there for him, even now. I also needed him to know that none of this was his fault. I knew he blamed himself for not noticing, but I was the one hiding everything.

“Yha should maybe take a seat mate…” Niall took the chair beside my bed and handed it to Harry. He sat down in front of us and pushed his curly hair away from his eyes, like he always did every fifth second. I smiled to myself, knowing everything would be easier when we’d told Harry. I knew him and I was sure he’d understand.

“Look… I don’t know how to tell yha this, and I am not sure whether yha will believe me or not” Niall took a deep breath.

“Spill it Niall” Harry had always been a bit impatient and I giggled, happy he hadn’t changed at all.

“Charli’s alive, or… not alive, she’s like a ghost, I guess yha could say…” Niall mumbled, a bit confused himself. I took his hand in mine and whispered soothing in his ear “calm down baby, he’ll understand”.

“Sooo… what you’re saying is that Charli’s alive, but not really…?” Harry smirked, fully aware that Niall knew his own explanation was shitty.

Niall sighed “kinda I guess. The thing is that I can hear her, and sometimes I can even feel her and I know it sounds crazy, but it happened and she’s right beside me now. I can feel her hand in mine” He looked down at his hand and smiled tenderly.

Harry’s jaw dropped and he was at a loss of words. He looked a bit skeptical, but who wouldn’t after being told something like that?

“Tell him that I’m sorry and none of this is his fault. No matter what happens he will always mean the world to me” I bit down on my lip as Niall passed the message on to Harry.

Harry ran his hand through his curly hair as tears formed in his already red eyes. He fought so hard to keep a façade, and I felt my heart ache as it broke. He covered his face with his hands as his silent sobs filled the room. I let go of Niall’s hand and sat down on Harry’s lap with my arms wrapped around his neck. He kept crying as I placed my hand on his chest and sniffled a few times myself.

“I love you Charli… and I hope for Niall’s sake he isn’t fucking with my head” I giggled and both Niall and Harry followed.

“I can assure yha I wouldn’t evah joke about somethin’ like this” Niall said with a sympathetic look.

“Please tell him I’m sitting on his lap and that I love him too” I smiled as tears streamed down my face. It was nice having Niall here to support me and help me, and now that Harry knew, I could talk to him through Niall.

“She just told me t tell yha that she’s sittin’ on your lap and that she loves yha too” he said to Harry with a hint of a frown on his face.

“Don’t worry Niall, I didn’t mean it that way… I’m not into Harry like that” I chuckled and Niall quickly lit up again.

Harry dried his eyes and hesitantly touched the air in front of him. I giggled and took a hold of his hand. He gasped and jerked away, making me fall to the ground once again. It was times like this I was glad I didn’t feel pain as strong as I normally would. A whimper escaped my lips though and Niall’s eyes opened wide.

“Charli? Are yha okay?!” he rushed over to me, though he knew there wasn’t anything he could do to help me up.

“Yeah, I just fell… clumsy me” Niall chuckled and Harry sent him a questioning look.

We talked for hours, and Niall told Harry everything that had happened. At first Harry was pissed that we hadn’t told him earlier, but eventually he understood, like I knew he would. It was a bit awkward and Harry hated the fact that Niall could hear me and he couldn’t. He felt me though, every single touch. It almost felt like I was alive. At one point I almost forgot about the girl lying in the hospital bed only a few meters away.

It was getting late and the nurse stopped by to check on me, as usual. Only difference was that this time it wasn’t Sophia. Sophia had been my nurse since I got here and she was so nice. She always let Niall stay here if he asked. I wondered if this woman would, she looked very… strict.

“Visiting hours ended long time ago…” she glared at Niall and Harry. They both wanted to speak up, but didn’t know what to say.

“You both need to go” she didn’t look at them while talking, and I hated her already. I just needed Sophia… We all needed Sophia. She understood why Niall had to stay.

I watched as Niall and Harry collected their things. I couldn’t even remember when the last time Niall didn’t stay all night by my side.

“Can we please stay? I promise we will be quiet… I just can’t leave her” Niall begged her as he put on his jacket. He made sure to be very slow.

“It’s fine Niall, really. I am okay with being alone tonight.” I left a kiss on his cheek and gave both him and Harry a huge hug. If it could just go with them I would do it in a heartbeat, but I couldn’t. While sleeping I entered my real body. I had no idea why, and I didn’t decide it, that was just how it was with ‘ghosts’ I guess. It wasn’t possible for me to leave at night, I was trapped. Trust me, I tried.

“Sure yha will be fine?” Niall whispered just loud enough for me and Harry to hear it. I just smiled until I realized they couldn’t see me.

“I’ll be fine Niall, go. You need to spend some time with actual people” I chuckled, though Niall still wasn’t convinced it was a good idea. He stood for a while, considering whether it was worth a fight or not.

“Okay then, but don’t do anything stupid while I’m gone” Niall smirked as they left me alone with the nurse.

“I can’t promise anything!” I yelled back with a grin on my face.

I looked over at the annoying nurse and my grin immediately disappeared and was replaced by a frown. “Wow, these next hours will be so much fun” I rolled my eyes and lay down on the bed, beside my body.

The nurse wrote in her little notebook and left the room quietly.

“Well I guess it’s just me and you now…”  I look at myself and chuckle.



Thank you all for reading though I'm shitty at updating... I have a lot going on at the moment, so I don't have much time for writing - I'm sorry for that!
I also feel a bit like my story isn't that good, so I don't really feel like writing if people don't like it... I dunno, maybe it's just me...

Anyways thank you for still being here, it means a lot to me! :-)
