46. Chapter 45: Wake Up, Please

I sat in the waiting room. I couldn’t see Louis.

“He’ll be fine.” Harry promises. I look at him and give him a small smile.

“I can’t help but worry! It’s all my fault he’s hurt! If I never moved in with you guys he would be fine!” I cry. Harry wraps his arm around me.

“Sh, it’s not your fault. It’s no one’s fault but Kathy’s. So don’t even think about taking the blame!” Harry says.

“She should have shot me.” I sob. Harry wipes my tears away with his thumb.

“Why would she? You would get the easy way out. She shoots Louis, he could die, you lose someone you love. She wins.” He says.

“She shot herself?” I ask.

“She’s crazy. She probably didn’t want to be stuck in jail for murdering someone.” He replies.

“I just hope Louis is okay.” I mumble. At that moment the rest of the boys came back with food. They pass Harry his sandwich. I didn’t want to eat.

“We’re really sorry we didn’t believe you.” Liam apologises. I look at him.

“You’re supposed to believe me, you’re my brother.” I accuse him.

“I’m sorry; I really thought Kathy was dead.” Liam mutters.

Just then a nurse appears. “You can go see Louis now. He’s unconscious right now but he should wake up soon.” She tells us and we nod. She leads us to his room and we all find a seat to sit in.

I pull my chair up so I’m right next to Louis. He looks so peaceful asleep. I quickly kiss his cheek. 

 

                                                                            *** 

Hours passed, nothing. I was scared he would never wake up. Harry tried persuading me to come home with them to get some sleep. I refused of course. 

"Louis, please wake up." I say. I give his hand a gentle squeeze. Why wasn't he waking up? The nurses are no help either, they just say he will wake up when he's ready. I keep worrying that he won't wake up. 

 

                                                                             *** 

"Lizzie? It's time to go home." Harry whispers in my ear before picking me up. I'm too tired to try and fight. So I shut my eyes and fell asleep in his arms. 

I woke up again several hours later. That's when I realised I was sharing a bed with Harry. 

"What the fuck!" I exclaim and roll out of bed immediately. 

"Sorry. You fell asleep in my arms." Harry apologises and climbs out of bed. 

"What about El?" I ask. I didn't want her to hate me. 

"She won't find out." Harry replies. "Get dressed, we're going back to the hospital." I nod and leave the room. 

It was strange being in Louis' room without him here. Especially since the bed is still nicely made. Being in his room made me feel sad and I tried my best not to cry. 

I get dressed quickly before leaving the room and joining the others by the front door. 

"Ready?" Liam asks me and I nod. He takes my hand and we follow the others to the car. "Louis will be fine, don't worry." I give him a smile. Harry grabs my other hand and gives it a squeeze. 

Louis was still asleep when we got there. The nurse told us nothing has changed. 

"I'm scared." I whisper. Harry wipes a tear away from my cheek with his thumb. 

"We all are." Harry whispers. 

"I'm hungry." Niall announces. It's obvious he's trying to break the awkward silence. 

"Me too." I reply. 

"Let's go grab some food." Zayn suggests and we all leave the room. Being in that room is depressing. It reminds me of the last time Louis was in hospital. He couldn't remember me. I guess he's just the unlucky one out of the band. 

I was hungry. I couldn't eat though. I stare at the prawn sandwich in my hand and take a small bite. It tastes of cardboard. I force myself to eat the whole sandwich. It definitely stopped me from feeling hungry. 

A nurse walks in and looks surprised when she sees us all in there. 

"Hi," Niall says with a mouthful of bread. 

"Niall!" I scold him. 

"Sorry." I apologises after finishing his mouthful. 

"Has Louis woken up yet?" The nurse asks us. We all look at each other and shake our head. "I'll go talk to a doctor." 

Shit. That couldn't be good.
