"Niall James Horan you've been arrested for drink driving over the limit of alcohol." the police officer bellowed down at the reckless body on the hospital bed, helpless to do anything, even to sit in a cramped police cell with nothing to do. What? Niall shook his head in disagreement; so did Liam, then rolled his eyes. He knew this was coming. Niall has to go into prison, whether he's on crutches or not. This is the only time that something has ever happened to Niall. Something as big as this. Like getting arrested for something he had done.
"But I..I can't" was all Niall could say.He was completely speechless. Couldn't the police officer see that Niall wasn't stable to sit in a cell all day doing nothing? "I can't" he repeated, whispering this time. He didn't understand. He can't even remember what he did last night. Apart from being in a car crash and nearly killing himself and the only person he loves, the only person he will only love in his whole life! He can also remember Harry's beautiful face, destroyed, reckless, unattractive, but he was still beautiful to Niall, he always will be beautiful to him, despite all the blood surrounding Harry's tanned, beautiful face.
"I'm afraid you have to" the police officer interrupted Niall's thoughts, breaking the silence around them, giving Niall a sympathetic half smile, then looking down at his broken leg. He shook his head in disagreement, looking down at his lap, slouching his back a little.
"You'll only be in the cell for a week or so, anyway. Just so you can calm down and sort your life around. It's not as if you're going to be in there for you whole life" the man standing infront of him said, trying to make it seem not as bad as it is to Niall. But it was to Niall. It's like his whole world had been torn apart. Because he wouldn't see Harry for those seven days. And he sees Harry everyday of his life, so it's going to be really hard for him.
"But it will feel like it" Niall whispered under his breath, rubbing his eyes with his fingers, then running them through his golden locks. "I need to sleep. I'm really tired" he whined, lying down on the uncomfortable hospital bed below him, pulling the thin blanket over him. Eventhought he had been asleep for nearrly 40 hours, he feels so exhausted!
"I will be back later to take you to the station, Mr Horan. Just get some rest, okay. I don't think you'll be having much up there" the officer informed Niall, patting him lightly on the shoulder sympathetically. Niall nodded, before the officer left the small, cramped room.
"We're going to check on Harry, okay Niall?" Liam told Niall. Niall had actually forgot that Liam, Zayn, and Louis were still in the room, they were so quite sitting in the corner of the room.
"See you later, mate," Louis whispered, smiling slightly at the ingured man infront of him.
"Sure. See you guys later. Tell me how he's doing when you come back"
" We will, Niall. See you later mate. You need to sleep now" Louis added, giving Niall a quick smile, then turning towards the door to walk with the other boys. And with that moment, the three young boys left Niall lying alone in the small, cramped room, just like it was before.

The hospital hallway was quiet. Too quiet. Apart from the slight moans coming from room 405 right at the end at the left. The room of Harry's. The pain he was going through was unbelievable. He was lucky that he was still alive. The lights were flickering on and off above the 3 boys as they walked down the abandoned hallway.
Louis, Zayn, and Liam walked down the deserted hallway, waiting for someone or something to pop out of somewhere infront of them.
''Guys, this is creppy," Louis whined, looking at the dirty walls around him. Why did we pick this hospital?
"I know it is, mate, but we've got to see Harry" Liam said, giving Louis a reassuring smile.
"This is a horrid place" Louis whispered to himself, They made their way to the end of the hallway, where the sound of his moans were coming from, right at the end. Zayn turned the handle to the door, and opened it quietly so it wouldn't make a sound. On the other side of the door, was the body of Harry lying there, legs in plaster, arms in plaster. It looked like something from a horror movie.
"Harry?" Liam whispered, sitting on the chair next to Harry's bed. Harry didn't do anything. He kept his bruised eyes closed, and fliched every so often.
"Harry, it's fine. It's only us" Zayn said, sitting on the empty space of the bed next to Harry. Louis was left standing in the middle of the room, looking straight at Harry. Those two had been best friends since they were at nursery, and to see Harry like that, Louis was devastated. He walked towards the bed Harry was lying on, placing a hand on his shoulder.
"Harry, please open you eyes" He whispered, with a tear rolling down his eye. "It's me, Louis. Your best friend"
"L-louis?" Harry whispered silently, trying to open his eyes slightly.
Louis nodded, "Yes, me Louis"
Harry opened his eyes fully to see a pair of blue eyes looking down at him. He smiled a little, then frowned.
"Where's Niall?" He shouted, trying to sit up. he had suddenly just remembered what hap happened to him and Niall, "Someone tell me where he is!"
"He's in here too, Harry" Liam said, patting him on the shoulder to try and push him back down on the bed.
"I want to see him. Now" he said, standing up from the bed, and pushing Liam away from him. Even though he couldn't walk, he grabbed a crutch from the corner of the room, and wlked towards the door.
"Harry, you can't-"
"I don't care! I'm going to see him now! What's him room number?"
"Room 398" Liam whispered, not wanting to make Harry any more angrier.
"Thank you", And with that moment, Harry turned the door handle, and opened to door, leaving the 3 speechless boys in the room behind him.
Harry was running down the hallway, not literally but he might as well be because he was waking so fast. He had to see Niall, talk to him.
Finally he found the room 398. He stood outside the door, clutching his crutch in his hand, shaking a little. He was about to reveal all of his secrets to Niall.
He turned the door handle, and opened it, to find Niall sleeping happily in the hospital bed. He walked in, closing the door behind him, which made Niall wake up. Niall rubbed his eyes, trying to adjust the light, then smiled when he saw Harry.
"Harry," he smiled, patting on the bed next to him.
"I need to tell you something, Niall"
Harry gave out a huge sigh , then said, "I love you, Niall"
