Without You

Niall Horan and Zayn Malik are two Cancer patients who happen to meet during Chemo. They fall in love with each other. Zayn being his sweet self gives Niall everything he has ever dreamed of. Niall is keeping secrets though... Will the secrets come out? Will Zayn be mad?


1. Hospital Rooms

-Zayn's POV-

I pull up to the all to familiar hospital, I sigh and step out of my car. I walk up the front steps to the large white and tan building that reads St. Mary's hospital. I walk into the building and am instantly smacked in the face with the smell of sanitary wipes hand cleaning products. The smell of a hospital used to bother me, but I have been here so long I hardly notice it anymore. I walk by the front desk where Julia the secretary sits answering the phone and greeting people who walk in. She smiles at me as I walk by, I've gotten to know her over the past few months. She is sweet to me, She understands my problems. I'm Zayn by the way, I'm 20 years old. I have been going to the hospital now for 6 months. I've been receiving chemo therapy here for 3 months. I have leukemia, yea it sounds bad but I don't have the worst of it. My doctors have told me I'm one of the very lucky patients who have a mild type of leukemia. I continue walking down the long hallway to the all to familiar room 13. When I get there I see that the second bed that is usually empty during my visits is occupied. Its a boy who looks my age maybe younger. He had blonde hair and blue eyes. He's actually really attractive. I smile at him not sure what else to do I could feel myself blushing slightly. My nurse Valarie walks in with her clipboard in hand.

"Hi Zayn, How have you been feeling?" She asks ignoring the boy laying in the bed next to me. I sit down on the second bed in the room and watch as Valarie hooks up the tubes in my arms for chemo.

"I've been alright, My arms are pretty sore though." I complain knowing that she can't do anything about the soreness. She smiles weakly and when she is through with hooking me up she leaves the room. The room becomes silent and starts feeling awkward. Should I talk to him? I don't even have to think twice about speaking because he speaks first.

"What brings you here?" He says in a sexy Irish voice. I have to admit I've always had a thing for Irish boys. Just the way their accents are make me melt at the knees. I realize I haven't answered the boy yet and feeling slightly embarrassed at my zoning out I manage to speak to him.

"I have leukemia" I say plainly. He doesn't look at me the same way everyone else does. My friends and family all look at me like I could die tomorrow. Which in all actuality I could, but why should I think about that? It really brings me down when I see them. I have been hiding from them since my chemo started. They used to bring me flowers and they started treating me different. I just couldn't take it, I haven't seen them in a long time. The only friend I allow myself to see is Harry, He is my curly haired best friend since first grade. I love the boy, he's always been there for me and even when I told him I had cancer he didn't start treating me different like everyone else did. I felt my phone vibrate and I pull it out of my pocket, its a text from Harry saying he was coming to visit me today. I answer with a quick 'okay' and put my phone back.

"How long have you been in here?" The sweet irish voice spoke again.

"It's been 6 months total, but only 3 months of chemo." I say staring into his big blue eyes. They are so cute.

"Oh, I'm Niall by the way" He says sweetly smiling at me. I smile back and realize he doesn't know my name.

"I'm Zayn" I say plainly, he nods and pulls out a laptop. The room goes silent again until there is a light knock on the door.

"Come in" I say forgetting that it's probably Harry. In walks a curly haired boy wearing a red plaid button up shirt and tan chinos. He has on white converse as well, he always did know how to dress. I smile and he walks over to the bottom of my bed eyeing Niall with a questioning look.

"Hey Zayn, I went to Kim's house last night, she really misses you. I told her I would try to get you to go visit her." He says quietly. Kim is one of my friends from High School. She has always had a huge crush on me, for as long as I can remember. I sigh at the thought of her, maybe I should just tell her I'm gay. It would make things with her a lot easier.

"I cant Haz, she always thinks that if I visit her its a date, you know I don't like girls" I say mumbling the last part hoping Niall didn't hear it. I'm not sure if he is cool with gay people. Harry laughs and glances over at Niall for what felt like the thousandth time.

"Yea, maybe you should tell her that then, because I'm getting tired of her calling me every night asking 'do you think Zayn is thinking about me? wouldn't he and I make a cute couple? blah blah blah. She is actually quite annoying." He says using an extremely bad girly voice that I cant help but laugh at. I hear an unfamiliar laugh and realize it was Niall who was laughing. Harry turned and looked at him dead on, Niall immediately stopped laughing and turned away looking scared. Aw Harry scared little Niall.

"Niall don't let this idiot scare you, he couldn't hurt a fly" I say punching Harry playfully in the arm. Harry started grinning his signature cheeky grin and Niall smiled back blushing slightly. Niall is so adorable. Harry sighed and looked at his watch, I wonder where he's off too.

"I have to go, I have a date with Savannah tonight" Harry says smiling like he always does when he thinks of her. It's so cute, they are such a cute couple. I wish I could have something like that. I don't think ill ever find what Harry has. Maybe it's because I have this feeling I wont live long enough to love someone. I get pulled out of my depressed thoughts by Harry patting my leg and getting up.

"I'll text you later, Let me know if you need a ride." He says waving goodbye to me. He walks out of the door and the room falls silent once again. A new nurse with bright red hair pulled back into a bun and green eyes walk into the room and over to Niall's bed.

"Hi Mr. Horan, I think you're about done for today." She says in a high pitched voice. Niall nods and moves his arms so she can hook his tubes. When she is done she leaves Niall so collect his things and leave. Niall grabs his coat and laptop and heads for the door. I watch him as he crosses the room slowly. He gets to the door then hesitates. He turns back around and opens and closes his mouth about 10 times before he finally says something.

"I don't normally do this, but I'm thinking what the hell, Do you want to go out tonight?" Niall asks a light blush dancing across his pale face. I was caught off guard and sat there in shock for a few seconds before mentally shaking myself and answering this sweet Irish boy.

"Sure, here ill give you my number." I say handing him my phone and having him put his in my phone. I text him and he smiles

"Okay, I'll text you a ittle later?"

"Okay!" I say grinning a huge grin. He smiles and walks out the door. I cant help but notice a slight jump in his step. I have a date tonight, I need to get out of here and get ready!

(A few hours later)

I am running around my house like a chicken whose just had their head chopped off stressing about this date. Niall had called me about an hour ago and asked me if I would like to go to dinner in an hour and a half. I had taken a shower and spent 40 minutes deciding on what to wear, I was so nervous. I walked by a mirror and started playing with my hair. I pushed my quiff to the left, then to the right, then to the left again. I ended up getting so frustrated I let out a loud groan and stomped away from the mirror. The doorbell rang any my heart started beating so fast I thought I was going to pass out. I walked over to the door and opened it to find Niall dressed up in a blue button up shirt and black slacks with black dress shoes. He looked so hot, He smiled and I noticed him check me out.

"Hi, Zayn." Niall said sounding slightly nervous. I laughed and stepped out of my house and closed the door.

"Hey Niall, How have you been?" I ask trying to make some conversation with him.

"Pretty good actually, you ready to eat?" He asks smiling a huge smile. I nod and we walk over to his car and he opens the door for me. I blush and slide in. He gets in and starts the car. The drive to the restaurant was fun we laughed and joked about anything and everything. He is so cute and funny. We pull up to Nandos and he gets out and opens my door, we walk up to the restaurant and walk in. Niall talks to the waitress and tells her our reservation. She smiles and leads us to a candle lit table I rush over and pull out Niall chair, he can't be the only gentleman! He blushes and sits down I go sit across from him and he looks at his menu.

"What are you getting Niall?" I ask not exactly sure what to order myself. He looks up from his menu smiling at me, I see his eyes wander behind me and his smile falls and I could have sworn I heard him gasp.
