It was that sweet voice I have been longing to hear for so long. Ashley's dad kneels down beside her taking her hand.
"Ashley you're awake! I'm so happy to hear your voice." Her dad says with tears in his eyes.
"I'll go get the nurse, do you need anything sweety?"
"Can I have some water?" Ashley chokes out and I can tell her throats dry.
"Sure thing." Her dad gets up leaving the room and the two of us alone. I take the time we have alone to kneel next to her taking her hand.
"Ashley you have no idea how much I've missed you." I can feel tears falling down my cheeks.
"Shhhhh" I feel her run her fingers through my hair calming me down.
"I love you so much." I say looking into her eyes.
"I love you too." She looks at me like she was trying to contemplate whether or not to tell me something.
"Why were you and my dad fighting?" I look down not wanting her to have to talk about this right now. With my luck the nurse and her dad decide to walk in the room right then.
"I'll leave you guys alone." I get up to walk away when I feel someone pull on my hand.
"No stay." I hear Ashley's soft voice and I can see she's scared by the tears forming in her eyes.
I look over at her dad but he doesn't look at me so I sit back down taking her hand.
A few hours later I was still in the hospital with Ashley by my side. Her dad had to go to work so he reluctantly left Ashley and I. The guys are also here. They arrived about 15 minutes ago. I'm happy they came because since they've arrived Ashley has not stopped smiling.
"Hey guys you mind if Ashley and I talk alone for a second?" Louis asks and we all nod our heads and I give Ashley's hand one more squeeze before I walk out the room.
Louis sits down where Niall sat and just looks down at his hands. I know he's trying to figure out what to say so I do him a favor and reach over taking one of his hands. He looks at me a bit surprised but soon relaxes stroking my hand with his thumb.
"Listen Ashley I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am. I never should have said that stuff about you. I didn't mean any of it!"
"It's ok I know you didn't." I say trying to reassure him that I'm not mad.
"No it's not ok! When I saw you in that bed barely breathing I thought we were going to lose you! I thought I was never going to tell you how sorry I am and how I wish we could go back to being friends like we were."
Tears were now slowly falling from his eyes onto the hospital bed. I sat up and took his face in my hands wiping away his tears.
"Hey! I forgave you the minute the words left your mouth. I knew you didn't mean it and you were just caught in the moment protecting your friend."
"Ya but you were my friend too. You are my friend and I should have treated you better." Louis still looked so sad and it was killing me so I did the only thing I knew to do. I wrapped him into a hug that he at first was against but soon he fell right into place.
My dad has finally got back from work and I still have no idea why him and Niall were fighting. It's driving me crazy! My dads reading his book like usual and it is annoyingly silent in here.
I decide I might as well just go for it "Hey dad can I ask you something?"
"Sure what is it?" His eyes never leave his book.
"Why were you and Niall fighting when I woke up?" My dad takes a deep sigh closing his book, putting it on the table beside him.
"Sweety you were on your way to Niall's while in a fight with Louis when you got in your accident and I just don't feel like they are the right people to be hanging out with." My dad seemed to hesitate on each word he said trying to put them in place like pieces of a puzzle.
"Niall and Louis had nothing to do with my accident! You said it your self it was a drunk driver no one can stop that!" I can't believe he's blaming them it wasn't there fault.
"I know but I still don't feel right about it. First Harry and then Niall, it's just not a good place for you to be in. Two famous singers you don't need that attention nor do you want it."
"But daddy I love him!" At that point my dad got up and sat next to me.
"Honey your 18 you don't know anything about love. You've only known this guy for what three months? It isn't love."
I can't believe this! It is love and what ever my dad says it's not going to change that!
I turn my head to see Niall in the doorway.
"What?" He must be joking.
"Your dad's right, you don't need this attention from the public. You need a guy who's attention is all on you, and only you."
"What are you saying?" He can't say the words I know are about to come out of his mouth.
"Ashley, I think we need to break up."
Hey guys so I think there's only a few more chapters in this book. I have decided just tonight that I am going to write a sequel! I'm excited for it and please give me your feedback on the idea!
