Chapter 17

 

-Liam’s POV-

 

Thump

Thump

 

That’s all I could hear as my hand reached for the ice cold doorknob. I gulped. I have no idea what I’m going to see in there, I have no idea if he’s going to be alright. They told me he’s awake which is amazing. But can he hear? Did that part of the surgery work? I wonder if he’s confused… I hope not, I hope he’s happy and comfortable. My hand burned as it gripped the knob, I turned it and pushed the door open hearing it creak slightly. I licked my very dry lips and took my first step into the room.

My heartbeat quickened as I stepped into the semi dark room. The curtains were drawn blocking any light from outside. My eyes trailed over to the bed, then I saw him. He was sitting up looking around. I could see tears were in his eyes. His eyes locked on mine. He smiled teats still dripping down his pale cheeks. I quickened my pace and walked over to the side of his bed. His eyes followed me as I walked. He reached out to me with a frail hand cupping my cheek. I knelt down and leaned into his hand kissing his palm.

 

“Niall” I whispered, I still don’t know if he can hear me. But if he can’t that’s fine. I’ll know in a second if he can. I looked up into his eyes, they were watering and wide.

 

“I… I can… I heard… your voice… oh my god…” He said, not in his usual loud voice when he spoke, it was like everyone else, everyone else who could hear. I was smiling so widely my cheeks were burning. He smiled back at me. I wrapped my arms around him, feeling how warm he was. I cried happy tears into his shoulder.

 

“You can hear.” I said. He nodded, I kissed his neck and looked him in the eyes.

 

“I’m so happy it worked Ni. I’m so happy you’re alright.” I cried. He grinned cupping my cheeks and wiping away my tears.

 

“I can’t believe it. How?” He asked looking confused once again. I chuckled at how adorable he looked. I missed this, looking into his soft blue eyes and watching his adorable expressions change right before me.

 

“The doctors said they could give you implants since they had to do something else to your head to help you get out of your coma. I was so worried baby, I didn’t know what to do. I’m so sorry.” I cried, flashes of my unfaithful days flooded my mind. I did things with Louis, I had never done with Niall. I’m so ashamed.

 

“Why are you sorry? You did nothing wrong.” Niall spoke softly still cupping my face. My eyes fell, I can’t lie to him. I have to tell him the truth. I sighed I couldn’t make eye contact with him. I pulled my face from his hands and kept my eyes down.

 

“I need to tell you something. I’m so sorry Niall. I didn’t know what to do. I was confused and they didn’t know if you were ever going to come out of your coma. I did something bad Niall. Something VERY bad. I’m so sorry.” I cried. He kept silent the entire time just watching me, waiting for me to say four words. Four words that would break him.

 

“I cheated on you”

 

His eyes grew wide as the words fell from my lips. He shook his head and looked down at his hands that were placed in his lap. He sighed.

 

“It’s fine. I understand. You didn’t know what else to do. But… who with?” He asked hesitantly. I bit my lip, I can’t lie to him, I have to tell him who even if it hurts him. I swallowed thickly.

 

“Louis.” He kept his eyes down as I spoke his name. I thought this was it, it thought for sure he was going to tell me to leave and never come back, to never talk to him. But no, he didn’t say those words. He didn’t make me leave like I knew I should.

 

“Okay.” He breathed. He reached out and took my hand, entwining our fingers. I looked up at him, shocked at his actions.

 

“You still love me though right? You have no feelings towards Louis at all?” He asked looking into my eyes finally. I shook my head quickly.

 

“No, oh god no. I could never. I love you Niall and only you.” I squeezed his hand. He let a soft smile fall over his perfect lips.

 

“Good. Kiss me.” And I did. I placed my lips on his loving the feeling of his warm lips on mine. I really missed this. I missed the feeling of his soft lips and mine connecting together perfectly like puzzle pieces.

“Well I think you’re good to go. I don’t think you will run into any problems, but if anything gets odd come back okay? Plus, since you lost your hearing at an old enough age you don’t need any speech theory. But if you have any trouble with words and speaking we can still offer it to you.” The doctor spoke to Niall. I was holding his hand. They made Niall stay another day just to be sure he was going to be alright. They were releasing him now since he hadn’t shown any signs of anything going wrong. I was so happy for him, I couldn’t wait to get him home. Bobby came and told him about what happened with Maura and Michael. Niall took it pretty well. Bobby said he could stay with me for the next few days until he was feeling better.

 

“Okay thank you so much doctor.” Niall grinned throwing the blanket off of him and standing up. I helped him change into his clothes and walked him to the wheel chair, the hospital makes you use one even if you can walk. A nurse came and helped wheel him to my car. Once I got him strapped inside I could see how happy Niall really was.

 

“Can we listen to music?” Niall asked grinning. I felt happy tears come to my eyes, he could listen to music once again. I nodded and handed him my CD case. He happily flipped through them until he stopped on one.

 

“Demi Lavato!” Niall cheered. I laughed and took the CD from him and put it inside the player. We listened to her CD on the way back to my house. When we pulled up to the house Niall was jumping in his seat with excitement. He looked like a 5 year old on Christmas morning, waiting to open his presents from Santa Claus. He was so happy. Listening to music made him the happiest boy on the planet. We got out of the car and walked up to the house, hand in hand. I could hear Zayn and Giulia laughing inside somewhere. Niall looked at me and smiled. I unlocked the front door and we stepped inside. I could see Zayn and Giulia in the living playing Mario Kart. I looked down at Niall who was still grinning as he watched them race. We walked up behind them Niall smirked.

 

“So that’s what Yoshi sounds like…” Niall trailed off. Zayn jumped pausing the game, he turned wide eyed at Niall.

 

“Oh my god Niall! It worked!” He cheered jumping off the couch and scooping Niall up into a tight embrace.

 

“Breathing… Oxygen…” Niall panted.

 

“Let him go! You’re suffocating him!” I laughed. Zayn quickly released Niall but still kept smiling at him. Giulia came up next to Zayn and smiled at us.

 

“I’m so happy for you Niall.” She smiled.

 

“Thank you all. But can I play?” He asked motioning to the TV. We all laughed and started playing video games for the next hour.

 

After a while Louis and Harry joined us, I could see Niall was trying to give Louis a hard time but he was too nice of a boy to ever be rude to someone. I smiled at Harry and Louis grabbing both of them and pulling them into the kitchen.

 

“I’m guessing you told Niall, since he keeps glaring at me every now and then.” Louis mutters once we get into the kitchen. I can hear Niall and Zayn arguing about who is a better racer. I nodded. Harry hugged Louis from the side kissing his temple.

 

“He forgave me too, that’s the worst/best part. I’m happy he did, but it’s eating me up that he could just forgive me for something so terrible. I feel so bad.” I sigh looking down at my feet. Louis reaches out and grabs my hand, I look up at him.

 

“Don’t beat yourself up about it. I think this is his way of saying you get a second chance at being his boyfriend. Since he can hear he wants to start over, but obviously not completely over.” Louis smiles. I squeeze his hand and pull both Harry and him into a group hug.

 

“Thank you guys. Let’s go beat them at some FIFA!” I roared. They laughed and rolled their eyes. We all ran back into the living room and plopped down on the couch.

Harry and Louis left sometime after 11. Zayn and Giulia went back to her house so Niall and I had the house to ourselves. We curled up on my bed and put on Finding Nemo. Niall snuggled into my side munching on the popcorn we had made. I kissed the top of his head, I couldn’t focus. I have this burning question for him. I have to ask him, but I don’t want to be moving too fast for him. I also need to tell him some news. Some news I’ve been keeping from everyone. I applied to college back home in Wolverhampton. I didn’t think I would get in but I got a letter back and they are offering me a free scholarship. I need to tell Niall about this.

 

“You’re thinking hard aren’t you?” Niall muttered. I looked down at him meeting his soft blue eyes.

 

“How’d you know?”

 

“When you start to think about something you’re nervous about you scrunch your nose, which is adorable by the way, and you start rubbing circles in my sides.” He states matter-of-factly. I blush and look down, moving my hand away from his hip that I had been rubbing circles in. He laughed and turned so he was facing me.

 

“What’s up butter cup?” He asked smiling. I sighed and bit my lip. It’s now or never.

 

“IwasacceptedatacollegebackinWolverhampton.” I rush out. He blinks.

 

“Slower please? I’m still getting used to this whole hearing thing remember?” He jokes. I sigh and nod.

 

“I was accepted at a college back in Wolverhampton. They’re offering me a full scholarship and everything...” I say not making eye contact with him. He reaches over and entwines our fingers together.

 

“That’s so great Li, I’m happy for you.” He smiles up at me. I bite my lip, he seems happy but I can see the hurt behind his eyes.

 

“My mom left me some money and I was going to use it to rent a flat. I was hoping… it’s stupid never mind.” I change my mind, I want to ask him but I don’t want to scare him. I know I am walking on thin ice with him and I don’t want to ruin it. I don’t want to ruin what little hope we have together.

 

“Come on Li, just tell me. Please?” He squeezes my hand rubbing small circles with his thumb on the top of my hand. I sigh and build up the courage to just ask him.

 

“Will you move in with me?” He stares at me for a second then looks down. Oh no, I ruined it. I ruined everything. He’s going to leave me because I was moving too fast for him.

 

“Never mind, I shouldn’t have asked that. Just forget it.” I ramble. He lifts his pointer finger up to my lips silencing me.

 

“Shut up you idiot! Give me a second.” He laughed. He craned his neck so he could peck me on the lips, surprising me.

 

“I would love to.”
