It's been a couple months since I started going solo. I've been working hard on my music and I haven't had any distractions. Simon gave me a couple body guards but only one is with me at all times. None of my old friends have gotten anywhere near me and I am glad. Harry has been more public with his relationship with Jenna from what I seen in social media. I just shrug it off anymore. I met 5 Seconds Of Summer the other day and I'm actually hanging out with them later at the mini golf course. I finish recording the last of my first album and head out towards the lobby. I stop when I see Mirella and Ronnie standing by the door.
"Don't worry ma'am, just ignore them." James said. I look up at my body guard and nod. As I walk past the door, I notice that Ronnie doesn't look well. She is super pale and looks almost like she is dead. I stop and look at her. As she looks back at me she has tears rolling down her face. Mirella holds onto her and walks her to the couch. James looks a me and shakes his head.
"You can't go near them. You're rules." He said.
"What happened to Ronnie?" I said hesitating. I walk over towards them as they sit on the couch. "What happened?"
"Why the hell do you care?" Mirella said standing up in front of Ronnie. Ronnie coughs and holds her hand up.
"Look at her! What happened!" I yelled. James walks over and puts his hand on my shoulder. I smack it off. "Do not touch me right now."
"You threw all of us away Melody. So why do you care now? If you wouldn't of ran away, then you would of known that he has cancer." Mirella screamed. I froze and looked down at Ronnie who continued coughing. I felt tears roll down my face and I fell to my knees.
"How long has it been...." I cried out loud.
"It's been a year, but it just got worse now." Ronnie said.
"And you never fucking told me! You kept this from me! How dare you!" I said crying harder. Ronnie sat onto the floor next to me and cried.
"I'm so sorry Melody. I never wanted you to worry. I'm the strong friend. I look after you!" She cried out.
"I should have been taking care of you Ronnie! I should have been with you this whole time." I yelled. I grabbed her and pulled her into my arms. We both cried for what seemed like an hour. Ronnie looked up and wiped her eyes.
"Jenna called you." She whispered.
"What?" I sad sniffling.
"She made that recording to get you away from everyone. That's what we been trying to tell you, but you was too stubborn to listen." She said coughing more.
"I'm so sorry. You will get better right? It's not that bad. Please say it's not that bad." I said trying to breath.
"I have stage 3." She said. I didn't realize that she had a wig on until I looked closer.
"Ronnie you have to get better. You can't be sick." I told her. "You're a fighter and you always will be one."
"I'm not getting any better Mel."
"Shut up. You will. I'm never leaving your side ever again. I'm so sorry." I said picking her up.
Mirella seemed to calm down and grabbed the other side of Ronnie, not daring to look at me. I tell James to take us to my place. Once we get there, Niall is standing by my door.
"Mirella told me you were bringing her here." He said to me quietly.
"Oh. You're alone?" I asked.
"Yeah. The others didn't want to come." He said holding open the door. We carry Ronnie in and once we lay her on my bed I motion for everyone to leave me with her.
"Mel.." Ronnie whispered. I held my hand up and shook my head.
"No. I need to apologize. I was being a complete bitch. I didn't even bother to listen to you because of how stubborn I was and how I felt at the moment. I am the worst friend ever and you don't even deserve any of this. Those people are your true friends, not me." I choked out. "I was so hurt by everyone and I pushed you all away when I should have been by your damn side." I cried out. I slammed my fists onto my end table and lowered my head.
"Melody. You have always been my best friend and you never stopped. I understand why you did what you did and it crushed me but I knew that we would find our way back to each other. I love you like a sister and I should of told you that I had cancer, but I didn't want you to lose someone else. You're here now and that's all I need." She said holding my hands. I grabbed her and pulled her into another hug. I kissed her cheek and wiped her tears off her face.
"There is one thing I want to do." Ronnie said sitting up straight. I glance at her and she smiles. "Get revenge on that bitch Jenna."
I laugh and high five her. I'm so happy I have my best friend back, even if it is like this. I feel broken that she isn't in good condition and I pray that she fights this till the end.
Niall and Mirella walk in and sit on the bed with us.
"I want to have a sleepover with everyone." Ronnie mumbles. We all look at her as she lays down with her eyes slowly shutting.
"Everyone? Are you sure that's a good idea?" Niall asks. She nods and Mirella stands up.
"Then it will be done. Let's get everyone over here." Mirella said to Niall. We walk out into the living room and Mirella stops me.
"We all need to talk about this." She whispered, hoping Niall wouldn't hear.
"About what?" I asked curiously.
"What happened. What Jenna did. Harry." She whispered, lower than before.
"We will when everyone gets here. If they do." I say quietly. Niall walks over and puts his hand on my shoulder.
"The boys are coming, but they aren't happy." He said. I instantly become nervous and lay on the couch. Balto licks my face and lays on top of me.
"The girls aren't coming over and neither is Dylan and Thomas." Mirella said.
We watch TV as we wait for everyone to come. The doorbell rings and Louis, Liam, Zayn, Damon an Harry are standing outside the door, hesitant on whether they should come in or not. Niall nods towards them and soon we're all sitting in the room. Damon walks towards my room and shuts the door, probably to see Ronnie.
"We all need to talk about what happened." Niall said.
"Why? There's no point in trying to." Louis said angrily.
"We tried many times to but she wouldn't listen, so what makes you think we even want to." Zayn snapped.
"Shut up guys! Ronnie wants us all to be here together and it's going to fucking happen ok!?" Mirella yelled, making everyone jump. "Do it for Ronnie, please."
"Ok." Liam said.
Damon carries Ronnie out and lays her on the couch next to me and Balto. She smiles and lays her head on my shoulder.
"It's our group again. All together in one room. I'm so happy." She said.
"I'm glad babe." Damon says as he kisses her lips.
"So we need to get back at Jenna for ruining us." Ronnie said.
"We can't. She isn't someone to mess with." Harry mumbled.
"We have to. She deserves to be humiliated.' Ronnie coughed out.
"I'm sorry. I need some air." I said stepping out onto my balcony. The wind blows through my hair and I take in deep breaths. I feel a hand on my back and when I turn around, Harry stares at me with a straight face.
