My eyes fluttered open and I sat up. I looked at the clock, 12:00pm. I sighed and looked at my pillow, and sure enough the last lock of hair had fallen off my head. I feel tears bubble in my eyes. I blink them away and decided to take a shower.
"Afternoon beautiful," Niall tells me.
"Afternoon," I tell him with a weak smile.
"You ok love?" Niall asked.
"You sure? You look depressed." Harry spoke.
I look down. "Nina, what's wrong?" Niall asked coming over to me.
"I'm bald, I feel weak, I can hardly wake up before noon, and, and-" I stopped talking as a sob takes hold of me.
"Its ok love, it's ok." Niall whispers.
I didn't think it was ok, but I didn't say anything, instead, I clutched his shirt with my fingers.
~Two Weeks Later~
When I open my eyes, I sat up, and looked at the clock, 12:30pm. I sighed and got dressed for the day. A loose tank top, and some shorts. I then put on my brown wig. I sighed and when downstairs.
"Hello?" I called when I didn't see anyone. No one. "Anyone home?" I called again. I walk in the kitchen and saw a note on the fridge.
'Nina, meet us at the park,
Confusion filled my face as I walk across the street and turned the corner. When I got nearer to the park, I hear screaming fans. Worry spread through my body, but I force my legs to go forward.
When I got near the entrance I heard the boys' singing.
Now at the entrance where a body guard and Paul were. "Hello Nina, will you please follow me," Paul spoke. I nod and followed him.
Paul stopped at the by the make-shift stage. After the boys' were singing, Niall went up to me and held his hand out. I took his hand, and he led me to the boys'.
"Ok everyone, this is Nina, she's my girlfriend. Yes I know this is a shock for you all, so if it's ok with Nina, you can ask her questions, and Nina, if you want me to answer, I will. Are you up for some question?" Niall spoke.
"Yes," I answered into the microphone.
Suddenly a lot of hands shot up. Zayn, went to one and put the microphone to her mouth. "Why are you so skinny? I mean, you look too skinny like anorexic or bulimia skinny. I'm not trying to be rude by the way." She asked.
"You want to answer that or do you want me too, or do you not want that question answered?" Niall whispered.
"I'll answer," I whispered back.
I took a deep breath and began to speak. "You see, when I turned sixteen I got stomach cancer, I was able to do without chemo therapy, but recently my cancer has spread, so I went on chemo therapy. I've been losing weight because of the chemo." I answered.
Another question came out, "How long did you and Niall know each other before you started to date?"
"Niall was my first friend . I knew him since I was five years old. My mom had a job transfer to Ireland, but when I turned twelve, my mom had to move to London for another job. After that I lost touch with Niall, but about seven months ago, Niall and his friends went to Richard's Bar, which also serves food. After a month Niall asked me out and I said yes." I answered.
After several more questions, Niall began to speak. "Ok, so I decided to sing a song to Nina."
Niall cleared his throat and began to sing.
"You're not alone, you're not alone anymore, you're not alone, and you’re not alone anymore.
I know you think there's no way out, like you've been living in the dark, but you don't have to feel alone.
I know you're reaching up for the sky, and you're searching for the light, but you don't have to search anymore, we'll be the hands to hold you up, we'll be the eyes to help you see.
We are here, we are now, and we are one."
"Nina, sing with me," Niall encouraged me. I nod, brought the microphone to my mouth and began to sing.
"You're the strength inside our hearts, you're the reason we believe.
We are here, we are now, and we are one."
Niall and I began to sing together, "You're not alone, you're not alone anymore, you're not alone, and you’re not alone anymore"
Niall dropped out and I continued.
"We'll be the hands to hold you up, we'll be the eyes to help you see, we are here, we are now, and we are one.
You're the strength in our hearts, you're the reason we believe, we are here, we are now, and we are one"
Niall and I began to sing together
"You're not alone, you're not alone anymore, you're not alone, you're not alone, you're not alone, you're not alone, you're not alone anymore, and you’re not alone
We are here, we are now, we are one, you're not alone, you're not alone anymore, you're not alone, and you’re not alone anymore."
People clapped and cheered. "Nina Parker everyone!" Niall announced.
