12. Who Are You?

Liam's POV

It had been over three months now and Kristen has still not woken up. The doctors are starting to get doubtful that she'll make it but I still have a spark of hope that she'll pull through. Like Erin had said, shes strong. I have been at the hospital every day since the accident. I talk to her, mostly normal conversations or memories and then wait for a response, until I remember that she won't respond. It breaks my heart to know I may never feel her sort lips or hear her sweet laugh again. I was about to walk into her room when I overhear two doctors talking inside.

"I don't think she's going to make it. It's been three months. We minus well pull the plug," one doctor says. This makes my heart stop. They can't just let her die, can they?

"I'd have to agree with you there. But what about her family and friends. Her boyfriend comes in every day to see her and he really believes she'll come back. I feel bad telling him, but even if she were to wake up, she might not remember anything at all. It would be like teaching a baby. I really do feel horrible for him," the other doctor says. Not remember at all and teaching a baby? This can't be happening.

"What makes this any different than anyone else you've worked with or tried treating? Why do you care so much? Everyone eventually goes through it. He'll get over it and find a new girlfriend in no time. I'm going to say, if she's not awake by tomorrow afternoon, we pull the plug," the first doctor says and my breath hitches in my throat. She's going to die? This has to be a dream.

"I don't know. There's something different about her. I don't know what, but I have this weird feeling. I do agree though that its not worth fighting for something that isn't going to come back. I'll put it in the files for tomorrow," the second doctor says. This can't be happening. I can't go in there now anyway, so I do the only thing I can think of. I go to the waiting room and call the one person I least expected to call, but as much as I hate saying it, he's the only one who truly understands. The phone rings twice and then I hear his voice.

"Hello?" I hear the voice on the other line. I didn't realize how much I'm panicking until I hear his voice.

"Oh my god, Louis. Thank you for answering! It's Kristen. They're going to do it tomorrow!" I yell, breaking down right there.

"Do what, Liam?" He asks, trying to stay calm but I can hear the panic rising in his voice.

"Pull the plug! I heard the doctors talking about how it's no use and that she's not going to wake up!" I could barely talk now, from crying so hard. Everyone in the waiting room was staring at me, some like I was crazy and others with sympathetic looks. I can hear a car door on the other line.

"I'll be right there. Stay with her for now. Every second counts now for us to try to wake her up," he says and hangs up. I decide to take his advice and walk into her room. The doctors are still in there and give me sympathetic looks. One of them walks up to me.

"I'm sorry sir but wer-" the one doctor starts but I cut him off.

"I already know what you're going to say. I heard everything," I say, not looking at him.

"We really are sorry, but this has to happen. It's no use," the doctor says, putting a hand on my shoulder. I push it off and glare at him.

"No, you're not sorry! After all, this is just another person and everyone eventually goes through it right? Your right, everyone eventually will. But not at 16. Not like this! She deserves so much more and needs time! You are just going to let her die and not even care! She's fucking 16 years old, do you not understand that! She will make it, I know she will! She's strong and needs more time! Please!" I'm hysterical again and can barely talk. I know I shouldn't be yelling at him, it's not his fault that she's hurt, but he can't let her die.

"Sir, calm down. Is for the best and I do understand. I've seen it happen to people younger than her. It's not fair, but it's life. It's hard now, but it will get better, even though it doesn't seem like it right now. Trust me with this," he says and I lose it.

"No I won't trust you! You're going to kill her! How would you feel if your girlfriend was fucking going to die tomorrow?! Not how you are now, that's for sure! You ba-" I can't finish because I feel someone pull me away. I try to fight them at first until I hear a familiar voice and turn around. I'm so relieved and pull them into a hug.

"Liam, you have to calm down, please. Yelling isn't going to help anything and it's not his fault," they say, looking at me.

"But Louis, it is their fucking fault. They made the decision to pull the plug. Why won't they listen," I say, sobbing into his shoulder. I look up to see Louis' eyes brimming with tears as well. I realize he's in the same position as me right now. "I'm sorry, Louis. I didn't mean to snap at you. I just really miss her."

"I know you do. So do I, and I want more than anything for her to come back, but the chances are getting slim. Lets go see her while we can though. Make the best of it," he says, leading me in. He goes over to the doctors and tells them something I can't hear. They nod and walk out. Louis and I pull up two chairs on either side of her bed, talking to her.

Two hours must have past before Louis stands up. He looks so tired and worn out, jut like I probably do.

"It's getting late. I think I'm going to head out. I'll come back tomorrow morning before...um...you know. Call me if anything happens. I want to give you some time alone with her since she is your girlfriend," he starts to walk out, then stops and turns around. "Oh and by the way Liam. I've been thinking a lot lately. I just wanted to say, yeah, I do like Kristen, like a lot, but I don't want to ruin your relationship. She was always so happy with you and I am jealous of that a little, but I'd rather see you guys happy together. I'm sorry for anything that's happened between us and I really hope we can be friends again. I never meant for any of this to happen and I just wanted to say I'm sorry."

I couldn't even respond before he walked out of the room. Of course I would forgive him. It also hurt though, him saying he didn't want to ruin our relationship because soon, it may be over. I can feel the tears streaming down my face again as I hold on to her hand.

"Kristen, if you can hear me. Please, please wake up. I need you. You can't die on me now! Don't do this to me please! You deserve so much more than this. I-I love you," is any and am surprised by the words that came out. Of course I mean them, it just doesn't seem right saying it when she can't respond or do anything about it.

Kristen's POV

"Kristen, if you can hear me. Please, please wake up. I need you. You can't die on me now! Don't do this to me please! You deserve so much more than this. I-I love you," the boy says. I'm in the room again, watching myself in the bed and the boy next to me. He loves me? His voice sounds so familiar but I have no idea who he is. I feel my stomach turn its butterflies. Something about him saying that made me feel so alive. I get quiet when I hear an angelic voice start to sing:

Shut the door

Turn the light off

I wanna be with you

I wanna feel your love

I wanna lay beside you

I cannot hide this

Even though I try

Heart beats harder

Time escapes me

Trembling hands

Touch skin

It makes this harder

And the tears stream down my face

If we could only have this life

For one more day

If we could only turn back time

You know I'll be

Your life

Your voice

Your reason to be

My love

My heart

Is breathing for this

Moment

In time

I'll find the words to say

Before you leave me today

Close the door

Throw the key

Don't wanna be reminded

Don't wanna be seen

Don't wanna be without you

My judgment's clouded

Like tonight's sky

Hands are silent

Voice is numb

Try to scream out my lungs

It makes this harder

And the tears stream down my face

If we could only have this life

For one more day

If we could only turn back time

You know I'll be

Your life

Your voice

Your reason to be

My love

My heart

Is breathing for this

Moment

In time

I'll find the words to say

Before you leave me today

Flashing lights in my mind

Going back to the time

Playing games in the street

Kicking balls with my feet

There's a numb in my toes

Standing close to the edge

There's a pile of my clothes

At the end of your bed

As I feel myself fall

Make a joke of it all

You know I'll be

Your life

Your voice

Your reason to be

My love

My heart

Is breathing for this

Moment

In time

I'll find the words to say

Before you leave me today

You know I'll be

Your life

Your voice

Your reason to be

My love

My heart

Is breathing for this

Moment

In time

I'll find the words to say

Before you leave me today

When he ended the so, he was crying again. Something felt tingly and I plunged in to darkness again. When I woke up, I was in a park with candles. The boy that was crying was next to me. We were talking and laughing together. He asked me something and I suddenly stopped laughing. We said some more things and I started explaining my life to him and showing him the cuts on my arm. That's how I know the boy. I still don't know who he is but I do know that I've met him before. With that, I plunge into darkness again and wake up in a ring. I'm on a horse and cantering to a jump. I can tell something is off and try to slow the horse down. I doesn't stop but speeds up and jumps too early. I feel myself dropping and my head hit something than darkness. It feels like a different kind of darkness then usual. I wake up to find myself in the room I've seen myself in multiple times with the crying boy. Only this time, I'm not watching them, but I'm actually in the bed, holding the boys hand. I feel a lot of pain. I look over at the crying boy and lift my hand to move hair out of his face. He looks up at me tiredly.

Why are you crying sir?" I ask him and he looks at me sadly.

"Because, you're going to- wait Kristen? Oh my god! You're alive!" He screams and hugs me. I let out a cry of pain and he lets go. "I'm sorry, I totally forgot. I'm just so happy that you're awake. I've waited three months for you to wake up and you're finall- wait did you call me sir?" He asks, looking confused.

"Um...yeah. Sorry, I don't know your name," I say and he looks shocked.

"Wait, you don't know who I am? Not at all?" He asks, looking sadder than I ever remember seeing him. I don't know why he's so sad.

"I'm sorry but no. You look kind of familiar but I don't know who you are. Am I supposed to know you?" I ask, confused now to why I should know him.

"Kristen, remember me? I'm your boyfriend. We've been going out for 5 months now. Do you remember anything?" He asks, pain in his voice. Something in my mind feels like I should remember him but I don't.

"I'm sorry, but I have no idea who you are. I wish I did and you seem like a really nice guy, maybe you have me mistaken for someone else. I think I would remember if I had a boyfriend. And may I ask, where am I?" I ask him and I can almost feel his heart break more and more.

"Um... Well you're in a hospital in London. You were riding your horse and fell off and hit your head. Callie landed on you and you broke a few ribs and your arm. You also had to get stitches on your forehead from hitting your head when you fell. You were in a coma for three months and they were going to pull the plug tomorrow, but now you're awake," he says, looking at me the whole time. Maybe that was the flashback I saw when I was when I was riding the horse and fell. Could that have really been what happened? I don't remember it at all.

"Are you sure you don't have me mistaken?" I ask him, and he looks shocked again. Just then a doctor comes in and looks at me. He has a look of shock on his face, but hides it quickly. The boy walks over to him and whispers something. The doctors face looks solemn as he walks over to me.

"Hello, Kristen. I'm Dr. Celam. I'm sure you've heard why your here by now. I have been told that you don't know what happened or remember anything. We'll see what we can do about that but for now. How about you talk to Liam here," he says, pointing to the boy. So that's his name.

"Hey, sorry if I sounded really weird when we first met. I think was a little crazy, it anyway, I'm Liam," he says, holding out his hand for me to shake. I take it and feel a little shock. My mind is screaming at me to remember him, but I can't.

"It's nice to meet you, I'm Kristen," I say, although I think he already knows that. This might be harder than I thought because I know that I know him from somewhere, but I don't know how.

Liam's POV

This feels so weird to be introducing myself to my girlfriend. I keep feeling like shes struggling with something or trying to remember something because she gets a faraway look in her eyes. I feel a flicker of hope every time it happens, but the doctor said the chances aren't very likely of her memories coming back.

"Wait! I do know who you are! You're in that band One Direction, right? I'm a huge fan!" She's says. My stomach flipped, until she mentioned the band. That at least means she didn't lose all of her memory, but it's not the same. I almost forgot that I had to pretend we just met.

"Yeah, that's right. Who's your favorite?" I ask, even though I know the answer.

"You are! I've always thought you were cute and had an amazing voice. Wait, why are you here to see me?" she asks and I gulp. I can't tell her why I'm actually here and I hate to lie to her but I have to.

"Um...I heard about the accident and that you were a fan. I wanted to say hi and see if you were alright. I hope you don't mind," I say and she shakes her head.

"Of course not! I would ask for a hug, but from what I've heard, I can't really do that with a broken arm and ribs," she giggles and that makes me laugh. It's so good to hear her laugh again.

"That's ok, maybe when you're better," I say, then take out my phone to text everyone that she woke up and what happened. They ally aid they would be on their way and that they would take it easy. "Hey, would you want to meet the rest of the band.

"Sure! I've always wanted to but could never afford it," she exclaims. Of course I'm glad that she seems happy, but it kills me that it's not for the reason I wanted it to.

A few minutes later, all the lads walk in and Kristen has a huge smile on her face and squeals. This is the reaction we get from most girls when they meet us. When I met Kristen, she wasn't like this at all. She treated me normally, but I have to cut her some slack for this.

"Hey Kristen!" They all say. I can hear the pain in their voices when they see her.

"Hey! Omg I'm like a huge fan of you guys! This is so cool!" She says and they fake smiles.

"It's nice to meet you, love," Louis says, sounding almost on the brink of tears. He covers it up and puts a smile on his face. "We heard what happened! I'm so sorry. It's great to hear that you're getting better."

We talk a little more and then Cailey and Erin walk in. Kristen looks so happy. Maybe she at least will remember someone.

"Erin! Cailey! I missed you guys so much! Come over here for a hug! Oh wait, never mind. That won't work," she says, laughing. They both laugh as well and actually look happy. I feel a pang of jealousy seeing her so happy with them and actually remember them. That should be me right now. I can only wonder how this will ever get better, and I only hope that she will get her memory back.
