"Emma! Look at me!" I heard Harry's voice yell. Someone grabbed my hands and pulled them away from my face.
"No!" I screamed shaking my head, my eyes closed. This wasn't happening. I tried getting free from his grip, but I couldn't.
"Emma! Please. It's gonna be okay. Just breathe. It'll be fine!"
"Dude, I think she's having a panic attack." Liam says. After that door creaking on the screen she freaked out. Liam had worked out the surround system and turned it on.
"How do we fix that?" I ask as she's just getting worse.
"I don't know man.." Liam looked apologetic at me.
"She needs to steady her breath. If she gets her breathing back to normal it might be easier to calm her down. Or it might help if you can get her to hold her breath." Emily said surprising us all with her smarts.
"How do we do that? It didn't work to talk." I started to panic myself.
"I don't know, you could kiss her. Subconsciously you hold your breath while kissing someone." She explained.
"No buts Harry, if you don't kiss her I will." Louis warned me. I know I have to, I just don't want our first kiss to be like this.
I have no choice. I let go of her hands and placed them gently on her face to keep her still. I leaned in and kissed her. I held it for some 15 seconds, hoping that when I pull away she's calm.
"Wh-why did you d-do tha-at?" She asked tears still streaming down her face. She looks terrified.
"Because Emily said it might calm you down." She just nodded still pretty scared.
"I'm going to hug you now." I said looking her straight in the eyes. She didn't respond so I just pulled her in for a hug. It actually helped and it calmed her down so much she stopped shaking.
"Shh, it's gonna be okay Emma. It's gonna be okay." I whispered in her ear hugging her tight.
It's been an hour and even if she's way better, Emma is still quite shaky. Even if we were only 20 minutes into the movie we turned it off and put on Toy Story one instead. We're going to watch a marathon so she might be able to sleep after.
Me and Emma are currently cuddling on the sofa, and as my arm is around her, Louis' arm is too for double protection. I've never seen her so fragile before, and I've known her forever.
"Is she sleeping?" Louis whispers to me. And when he says that I'm pulled out of thought and notice how her breath was heavy and steady.
"Looks like it." I smile tired myself.
"Maybe you should take her up before you both fall asleep?" He suggests and I nod. I pick her up and walk over to the door. Louis rushes over and unlocks it for me.
"Thanks." I mutter before telling goodnight to the others and head out. Once up in our room, well my room, I lay her down on the bed and find one of my shirts for her. She stirs a bit, but stays asleep. I walk over and change her out of her clothes and into my shirt, just as I always did when we were younger. She would always fall asleep before she changed into her pj's, and I never had the heart to let her sleep in jeans.
After she is changed I go to the bathroom and brush my teeth and change myself. When I finish that I tiptoe over to the bed and slide under the covers and pull Emma into my body, letting her be the little spoon for once.
I know this is a short ass chapter and it's not cool having y'all wait so long for so little.. I'm sorry for that ! Next chapter will hopefully be longer and better
