8. Chapter Seven

I woke up from an annoying beeping sound. My head felt like it was going to burst. I didn't open my eyes, because I feared the pain that would come. I knew where I was and I knew what that meant. I became aware of the feeling in my arms and noticed something rubbing the top of my hand. I slowly opened my eyes and found none other than Luke sitting beside my bed. The beeping sound sped up and I soon realised that it matched my heartbeat. Luke looked up and seemed relieved when he saw me awake.

"Melody.." he said softly.

"Luke.." I said matching his tone.

"Don't ever do that again. Promise me."

"I'm sorry, Luke. I don't make promises I can't keep.."

"This is my fault. I should never have left you alone in the first place." he said bowing his head.

"No. This isn't your fault. Please don't blame yourself." I said, my eyes filling with tears hearing the regret in his voice. "This isn't anyone's fault. P-please stop thinking it's your fault."

He looked up and I saw the tears in his eyes.

"P-please don't cry Luke. I d-don't want you to cry because of me. I don't want anyone to care about me either. It's not f-fair to you Luke." I cried taking my hand from his and curling in on myself. "It's not right dumping everything on others."

What he did next surprised me so much. He climbed up into the hospital bed and held me close to his chest. His arms wrapped around me and his hands were placed gently on my bandaged wrists, his thumbs making small circular motions. He held me until my hysterical sobs turned into silent tears. I hanged onto him like he was my only lifeline left.

"Why did you come home sooner?" I asked softly.

"The, uhm, meeting was cut short." he hesitated. I nodded finally letting go of him. 

"How long do I have to stay here?" I asked softly.

"You have to stay the week. You lost a lot of blood Mel." he said looking at me sadly. He got up off the bed and sat back down in the chair.

"Do the other boys know?"

"I called them, yeah. They were here yesterday and the day before."

"Wait... I was out for two days?!" I asked shocked.

"Doctors said you were in a semi coma.." COMA!?! "I'm just so glad you're alive."

My phone chose that exact moment to ring. I couldn’t have reached it if Luke hadn't given it to me. I checked the caller ID and wasn't all too pleased with who was calling. Maybe because I knew I was in deep shit, never mind trouble. I hit the answer button and held it to my ear.

"WHAT THE FUCK WERE YOU THINKING MELODY!?" Jane ranted saying some words that are not suitable for repeating. I waited until she was finished before I replied with just a simple 'I'm sorry'. What did she expect me to say?

"I'm sorry? That's it?! Do you have any idea how it feels being called by a stranger saying your cousin has slipped into a coma after trying to take her own life?!" she continued. Luke looked at me apologetically.

"Jane I don't need this right now! And yes I do know what it's like. Remember my parents? I was with you when I was told they were gone. Remember any of that?" I asked as tears of frustration and anger washed over my cheeks. Luke took my hand and started the circles again.

"I'm sorry. I'll talk to you later then." she sighed and hung up without a goodbye. I sat there, my phone in my lap as the tears continued. I didn't say anything, but I didn't need to. Luke seemed to understand. I went through my call logs and saw no missed calls from either of the 1D lads. Not even a text or anything. I sighed and wiped the tears away.

"You okay?" he asked.

"Yeah." I replied. "I'm just... tired."

"Get some rest. I'll be here when you wake up. I promise." he said smiling a reassuring smile.

"Will you sing to me?" I asked shyly as I laid down and pulled the covers tightly around me.

"Sure." he said tucking me in.

"Thank you Luke. For everything."

He smiled and started singing softly.

"A drop in the ocean

A change in the weather

I was praying that you and me might end up together

It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert

But I'm holding you closer than most 'cause you are my heaven

 

I don't wanna waste the weekend

If you don't love me pretend

A few more hours then it's time to go

 

As my train rolls down the east coast I wonder how you keep warm

It's too late to cry

Too broken to move on

 

And still I can't let you be

Most nights I hardly sleep

Don't take what you don't need from me

 

It's just a drop in the ocean

A change in the weather

I was praying that you and me might end up together

It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert

But I'm holding you closer than most 'cause you are my heaven

 

Misplaced trust in old friends

Never counting regrets

By the grace of God I do not rest at all

 

And New England as the leaves change

The last excuse that I'll claim

I was a boy who loved a woman like a little girl

 

And still I can't let you be

Most nights I hardly sleep

Don't take what you don't need from me

 

It's just a drop in the ocean

A change in the weather

I was praying that you and me might end up together

It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert

But I'm holding you closer than most 'cause you are my...

 

Heaven doesn't seem far away anymore

No

No

Heaven doesn't seem far away

 

Heaven doesn't seem far away anymore

No

No

Heaven doesn't seem far away

Oh

Oh

 

A drop in the ocean

A change in the weather

I was praying that you and me might end up together

It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert

But I'm holding you closer than most 'cause you are my heaven

You are my heaven..."
