3. I Wish
I woke up in the same chair I was sitting on the night before. I guess I've fallen asleep. My phone fell on the ground while I was sleeping and a crack was visible on the top left corner. "Crap" I whispered to myself, bending down to pick it up. I got up and stretched since I was sleeping in a very uncomfortable position. When I unlocked my phone, I saw 6 missed calls and 7 text messages. 2 of the calls and 3 of the text messages were from Liam. The rest were from my parents.
Message 1 - 11:47 P.M. (Liam)
Hey Jamie! We just finished our concert. It went great! Other than an ambulance passing by, the concert went through without any interruptions. I wish you could of seen it. Text me when you get this! Bye love.
Message 2 - 12:16 A.M. (Parents)
Jamie. Where are you?! Get your ass home now. We're really worried. Please be safe.
Message 3 - 1:39 A.M. (Parents)
Where are you?! We're your parents and we tell you what to do and when to do it. COME HOME NOW!
Message 4 - 2:04 A.M. (Parents)
Jamielyne, we're starting to get very worried. Please come home. If you're with Alli, please call. We're so worried. If we don't hear from you in the morning, we're calling the police.
Message 5 - 3:24 A.M. (Parents)
Dad and I are going to sleep. Still call if you're okay! We hope you're safe. We love you.
Message 6 - 8:14 A.M. (Liam)
Hey! Are you okay? You didn't reply to my text last night and you didn't answer my call. Sorry if you're sleeping. I'll text you later.
Message 7 - 9:02 A.M. (Liam)
Please text me or call me. I'm worried Jamie. Are you and Alli okay?
I looked at the clock. 9:32. I decided to call my parents up and have them not call the cops. They answered on the 2nd ring.
"Jamie?! Is that you?!" asked my mother.
"Yes mom, it's me. Sorry I didn't come home last night or call you back. I'm at the hospital with Alli."
"The hospital? What happened?!"
"I came back to Alli's place last night and she was lying unconscious on the ground."
"I'm going to the hospital!"
"No! I mean, it's fine. She's fine here. You don't need to come."
"Why? I want to see if she's okay."
"She is, I promise. She's strong. I gotta go okay? I'll come home later."
"Okay baby. Dad and I love you." I hung up and quickly went to the reception desk and asked for Alli Brenan.
"She's in room 241." The lady at the reception desk said. I quickly ran to room 241 to see if Alli was alright. I told my mom that she's fine because my mom worries a LOT. I got to Alli's room and saw her in a hospital bed sleeping. I pulled a chair up to the side of the bed. That's when I broke down crying again. What happened to her? I still have no answers. A doctor walked in, seeing me cry. I quickly wiped the tears away. I probably looked like a mess with my makeup smeared.
"If you're wondering if she's okay, she's fine. There's nothing wrong with her. She only fainted." said the doctor.
"Why couldn't I wake her up?" I asked, clueless.
"Sometimes that's normal. Is she a heavy sleeper?"
"Yeah..." my voice trailed off.
"That probably explains why she didn't wake up. I'll leave you here with her alone. She can leave today when she wakes up."
"Okay." I turned around to see Alli blinking quickly. "You woke up!"
"What happened? Where am I?" Alli asked, confused.
"I found you at home unconscious. The doctor said you fainted." I replied.
"I remember, I saw a huge spider."
"A spider? Haha you brought so much worry into me with just a spider."
"OMG! Did your date with Liam go good?!"
"Yeah, it went great! I was going to stay for their concert at Main Square but I was worried about you since you didn't answer your phone."
"I'm sorry. Give me all the details! I wanna know what happened!"
"It seems like you're better." I laughed. "First, I have to call Liam. I fell asleep here last night before the concert ended. He texted me last night and this morning."
"Okay, take your time." I went into the hall to call Liam. He answered.
"Hello?" I heard Liam's British accent as he answered the phone.
"Hey! It's Jamie. Sorry I didn't call back earlier or texted you back."
"It's fine. Are you okay?"
"Yeah, I'm actually at the hospital though. Don't worry, I'm fine."
"I didn't go back to Alli's last night because Alli was in a fashion crisis, I went back because Alli wouldn't answer her phone. I got worried and I didn't want you to have it on your mind since you were gonna perform. I'm Sorry"
"It's okay love. Is Alli okay?"
"When I found her, she was lying unconscious on the ground. The doctor said she just fainted. Alli told me she saw a huge spider."
"It's good that she's okay. What hospital are you in?"
"Mercy Medical Center."
"Do you need anyone to pick you up? I can come."
"No, it's fine Liam. Thank you though. I took Alli's car so I'm good."
"Okay, call me back when you get back to Alli's."
"Bye Liam." I hung up and went back to Alli's room. "C'mon Alli, let's get out of here." After the nurse got the needle out of her arm, we went to the car and drove back to Alli's. I was explaining the date while I was driving. Then we arrived at Alli's place.
"I'm actually kind of tired, I'm gonna take a nap on the couch." said Alli, sleepily.
"Okay, why don't you sleep in your room?" I replied.
"There's a spider in there!"
"Okay fine." I went to the bathroom to clean up. I took my makeup off and washed my face, brushed my teeth, and brushed my hair out. I pulled on my pajamas thinking I would stay at Alli's all day. Then I remembered I had to call Liam back. I called his number.
"Hey Jamie!" Liam said with a happy voice.
"Hi! I'm back home now. Alli's passed out on the couch."
"Do you wanna hang out today? You can come to the hotel I'm staying in with the boys. We can all get to know eachother better."
"That sounds great! I'll be ready around 11. What hotel are you staying in?"
"Holiday Inn. I'll pick you up though. We need to get your car from Culver's. What's your address?"
"Okay. My address is 3029 Willow Drive. I'll see you at 11! Bye Liam!"
"Bye love." Okay, it's 10:15. I still have 45 minutes to get ready. I hopped into the shower. I shampooed and conditioned my hair. I lathered my body with soap. I rinsed and dried myself off. I blow dried my hair and put it in a messy bun. I pulled on some skinny jeans and a t-shirt. Then I reapplied my makeup. I grabbed my purse and phone and then threw on a leather jacket.
"Alli, I'm going to the hotel to meet up with Liam." I whispered to her.
"Okay." she mumbled. I put on my shoes and sat outside to wait for Liam . It was 10:53 when he pulled into the driveway.
"Hey!" I greeted him.
"Hi! I'm going to stop at Culver's and you can get your car."
"Okay." We drove to Culver's making small talk. Mostly about the concert that took place last night. When we got to Culver's, I got out of the car and Liam rolled down the window. "I'll follow you." I got into my car and drove behind Liam. We finally got to the hotel. I suddenly felt nervous. What if the rest of the band doesn't like the rest of me? What if they think I'm not good enough?
