3. Hospital

When I woke up I was in a bed, a real bed this time, but it wasn't my bed. It was a hospital bed, I've only been in a hospital once, that was when Aubrey broke her harm when she was 9. I remember the white walls and the white tile flooring, the white bed sheets, the bright white light coming through the window. I remember it so well - after 10 years - because it was a place I never wanted to go. I never wanted to have to be in a hospital bed with and IV in my arm because it meant there was something wrong with me. I never wanted to be sick, or hurt. I wanted to be healthy and strong, and I always was.

I heard whispering outside my door, I couldn't make out what they were saying but they were obviously out there. After they were done talking the door opened and a head popped through the crack. Half expecting it to be James or Frank or even the mystery women, I flinched.

"She's awake." he whispered to whoever was standing behind him.

The doctor walked in followed by a blonde boy. I recognized him immediately. It was Niall. His eyes were red and puffy but it was still Niall. He had his bright blonde hair and his blue eyes that I never noticed before because I've only ever seen him in the dark. Then I realized why his eyes were puffy. He was crying.

"Niall." I choked out. My voice hoarse from sleeping.

"Hey." he said quietly, almost whispering. "Doc says you'll be out in a couple days." He smiled as he sat down in the chair next to my bed.

"Well, I'll give you two some privacy. If you need me, just press the little red button there." The doctor said and left the room.

"Oh Bree, I'm so sorry. I should have made sure you were safe, I never should have left. I'm so sorry." He said tears streaming down his face again.

"Shh, Niall. Stop, none of this was your fault. You can't blame this on yourself." I tried to comfort him.

"But if I would have just walked inside with you I would have been able to protect you. None of this would have happened." he scolded himself some more.

"Niall, please stop. Neither of us knew what was going to happen. I don't want to think about this. It isn't you fault." I said, starting to tear up.

"You're right. I'm sorry." he apologized, wiping his tears away.

"It's okay." I whispered.

We sat in silence for a few minutes until somebody knocked on the door.

"Can I come in?" The deep husky voice asked.

"You can come in Harry." Niall said.

"Hey sleepy head, you're finally awake." He said as he crossed the room to sit beside Niall.

"How long have I been asleep?" I asked confused.

"A little over a day." Niall replied.

"Holy crap! Why didn't anybody wake me up?" I asked shocked that I slept so long.

"We wanted to let you sleep and Doc said it would be better anyways, to let your body recover from what happened." He explained.

"Where's Gabby and Aubrey?" I asked forgetting that I never told them there names.

"Aubrey's in the waiting room." Harry spoke up, he must have talked to her.

"Gabby? Isn't she down there too?" I asked.

"Uh no, Aubrey said something about how she had to go back to college this morning." Harry said.

"Oh." was all I said. Why would she have to go back to college? It was only August, school started in September. But I didn't let them know that I was confused.

"Do they know about my parents?" I asked quietly, almost whispering.

"Yeah, Aubrey said when they got home the police were there and told them what happened." Niall said quietly also.

"Oh, okay. Can I see her?"

"Sure, I'll go get her." Harry said standing up quickly. "Be right back." And he was gone.

"So how long do I have to stay in this place? I hate hospitals." I whined.

Niall chuckled, "The doctor said you could be out of here by tomorrow." He said excitedly.

"Really? Well that's a relief." I said happily. But then I groaned softly.

"What's wrong? Are you in pain?" He asked worry covered his face.

"No, it's... It's just... I have nowhere to stay." I stumbled over the words, not wanting to ever have to say them.

"Don't be silly, you can stay with me and the boys." He promised.

"Are you sure? I don't want you guys to have to do anything you don't want to." I said.

"Of course I'm sure, we'd love for you to stay with us!" Niall said, a little too excited.

"Okay, okay I'll stay with you. But what about Aubrey? I know she's old enough and all, but she's never lived by herself before and she surely doesn't have the money, she's never even had a job." I chuckled at her as I babbled, she is a horrible worker.

"It's alright, we got it covered. She can stay with us too. We got a couple extra guest rooms we've always wanted to fill." He smiled at me.

Harry walked in then, followed by Aubrey.

"Aubrey! I'm so glad to see you! I'm glad you came." I said.

"Of course I came, why wouldn't I? I'm just happy that you're okay." She said.

"Don't cry, I can't handle anymore tears, please." I asked.

"Don't worry, you know I'm not much of a crier." She said.

"Thank you." I was afraid that if anybody else cried I was just going to burst into tears again and I wasn't going to be able to stop myself.

"You guys can go home, really, I'll be okay." I tried to sound brave, I don't think anybody bought it.

"Come on Bree, we're staying here with you until you get out of here." Aubrey said and they all nodded there heads.

"Okay," I sighed in relief, "So what are we supposed to do then while I'm cooped up in here?"

"We could just talk." Aubrey suggested and we all agreed.

"Okay then, I know you both are major fans of One Direction so who is your favorite member of the band before you met us, and why? Aubrey?" Harry asked.

"Well, if you must know, my favorite member would have been Zayn, because he seems like a bad-boy but then he also seems really sweet at the same time." Aubrey said simply. I think I was the only one who notice the 'would have been'.

"Bree? What about you?" Harry asked not sounding as interested as before. Maybe I wasn't the only one who noticed.

"Well, I would pick Niall," I looked over at him and his eyes lit up, "Because he just looks at everything on the positive side and he is also really funny. And of course being cute does help too. And he could eat a whole cow." I chuckled.

"Bree likes to eat too, I wished I could eat like her without getting fat." Aubrey laughed with me.

"I guess I'll have to take you out to eat sometime and see just how much you can manage. Won't even be able to put a dent in my plate." Niall challenged.

"You're on!" I laughed.

After a while nobody new what to say so I decided to break the silence.

"Oh Aubrey, guess who we're moving in with?" She looked up curious. "The boys!"

"No way!" She exclaimed covering her mouth with her hands. "This is like a dream come true!"

Just then somebody knocked and the doctor walked in.

"Well Bree, your test results have come back early and it looks like you're free to go tonight." the doctor said. "I'm just going to need to check on your stitches before you go." He came over to me lifting my robe and covering my legs with my blanket simultaneously. "You're an exceptionally fast healer, you're stitches should be ready to come out in just a week or two. Good thing the wound wasn't very deep."

"Thanks Doc." I said.

"You're just going to need to fill out this paper work and then you will be all set to go." He said handing me a clipboard and a pen. I filled out my name, date of birth and all that other stuff doctors always ask you, I signed it and handed it back.

"Thank you, take care, and take it easy for awhile while those stitches heal." The doc said before he left the room.

"I'm so happy I get to get out of this place!" I yelled with satisfaction while getting out of the bed. "Wait, I don't have any clothes."

"Don't worry, I picked you up some from my place. I hope you don't mind." Niall said.

He handed me the clothes - a pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt - which I put on and they were huge.

"I hope they don't fall down while I'm walking, that would be embarrassing." I laughed.

"I wouldn't really mind." Harry chuckled.

"Of course you wouldn't." Aubrey and I said together and then laughed at each other.

We left the hospital and got into Harry's car, Harry and Aubrey in the front, Niall and I in the back.

"Harry, could you take them shopping for new clothes while I go home for a bit? I need to check something." Niall said casually.

"Sure I'll drop you off." Harry looked back at him in the mirror and quickly nodded. What was that about?

When we got to the mall Harry took us shopping to all the popular stores in the mall like Forever 21, Pink, Hollister and every other one you could think of.

We were shopping for about 4 hours and had a shitload of bags when Aubrey spoke up.

"Harry I think this is enough, I could wear a different outfit everyday for a year and still have leftovers." we laughed.

"I agree, besides, I don't think I could carry anymore! My arms will fall off." We all laughed again.

"Okay, you're right let's go home." Harry agreed with us, thank god.

When we arrived at the house I gasped, it was the biggest house I've ever seen in person. I could probably fit 5 of my houses in it and still have extra room.

"Home, sweet home!" Harry exclaimed as he parked the car in the driveway.

"You're kidding, right? You don't really live here. Do you?" I asked amazed, not being able to look away from the house.

"Of course I do, I am famous after all." He said happy with himself.

"Right." I mumbled, still in shock from the house.

"Let's go inside and get you two settled." He said grabbing as many bags as he could carry.

I looked for Aubrey and saw her sitting in the car still, "Aubrey, you coming?" I asked her chuckling.

"Yeah," she said dazed. She stumbled out of the car. We each grabbed more bags and followed Harry inside. The inside was ten times better looking, it made the outside look like an abandoned shack.

Aubrey and I followed Harry upstairs and down a hall. He stopped between two doors that faced each other, I'm guessing they are our rooms. He gestured for us to go inside and Aubrey and I both opened the doors and walked in at the same time. I gasped with astonishment.
