A nurse came into the room and slowly began removing Liam from all of the hospital equipment.
"I really advise that you stay the night for monitoring Liam," the nurse nearly whispered to him as she began to unhook his IV.
"I can't. I wish I could but I just can't," Liam felt sore all over but there was nothing he could do about it right now. "Where is my phone?"
Zayn handed him the iPhone as the nurse finished removing the IV from him.
There was seven missed calls from Brianna and two new texts from her.
Liam, please call me. I need to know you are okay.
Marco told me what happened with the two of you. Just please call me.
Liam wanted to laugh at the two texts that he had gotten from her.
"Now just let me get your signature right here," the nurse said handing Liam a clipboard, "and you will be free to go."
"What is this?" their manager called yanking it away from Liam's hands.
"Just a paper that is saying if his medical condition gets worse that you cannot and will not sue the hospital because he is voluntarily leaving our care and there is no way that we can force him to stay here even though it is our highest suggestion," the nurse said jerking the clipboard back and handing it Liam. "You don't sign this, you don't leave."
Liam scribbled his signature quickly and handed the clipboard back to her.
"Thank you," he said getting out of the hospital bed and stretching his long legs for a moment. "Let's get back to the hotel as soon as possible."
Liam went straight to the bathroom once their were in the hotel room. Louis and Zayn stood at the door as Liam slowly removed the bandages that were covering his eye. The pain was terrible but Liam had to know what he looked like right now.
His whole eye was black and purple, with tiny cuts around it. The force it took to open his eye and seem how bloodshot it was now made him get sick. As he began to get sick.
"Liam, we need to press charges on this guy," Zayn called from the doorway.
"No," was the only word that escaped Liam's mouth between heaves but it was strong enough to make sure that neither Zayn or Louis would not ask again.
"They said if you kept it covered for a few days it'll heal with hardly any complications," Louis said trying to lighten the mood ever so slightly.
Liam just looked at his swollen eye and he now understood how much of a big deal this was. They started back up on tour in only a week and a half. He would have to heal up and be extra careful to avoid further damage. But the only question he really couldn't shake from his mind was should he call Brianna?
"Guys you don't have to babysit me," Liam called as he turned around to face them revealing as a whole the new look to his face. "Can I have a little privacy? I need to make a phone call."
"Okay," Louis and Zayn said prior to their departure.
"We will only be in the room next door," Zayn called before closing the door.
"Call us if you need us!" Louis yelled right as the door shut.
Liam walked out onto the balcony only to realize that screaming fans were already gathering around their hotel. It was typical but well loved. None of them knew of his injuries, at least he hoped that none of the fans knew just yet.
The thought of him not being able to perform again came to mind. What would he do if he wasn't able to do the tour? What would the other guys do? What would the fans do?
Liam felt dizzy and slowly made his way over to the couch located in the middle of the room. He laid down and took a few deep breathes hoping to calm down. There was no need to send himself into a panic attack over what if's and could be's.
He pulled his phone out of his pockets and quickly typed in his four digit pass-code.
The worst part about this was as much as he wanted to call Brianna he was still slightly mad at her. Deep down he knew that this was not her fault because she would never make this guy attack him. But he was mad that she told him that she was single. He thought they were best friends before this so how could she just not tell him? He felt played but he knew that it would be better to tell her something soon before she became too worried and then he would not be able to truly account for her actions. Plus, he had to make sure her silence was kept. It was obvious that this Marco character would stay quiet because it would mean serious jail time for him if he was not quiet.
The phone rang two long rings before she answered and immediately he could tell she was frazzled.
"Liam, ohmygod. Liam. Please tell me that this is you," she spoke and it all seemed to come out as one word.
"It's me," he nearly whispered. "I'm okay. But we seriously need to talk."
"I know. I know. God, I've been so worried since he told me what happened. Liam I swear I didn't want this to happen," Brianna was panicking.
"Brianna," Liam hushed her, "it's okay. I'm okay. Come by the hotel okay? We need to talk and I know they aren't going to let me out of their sights for awhile. Alright?"
"Okay, text me details and I will be there in about an hour," Brianna called through the phone.
"OK," Liam said before hanging up.
He quickly texted her the details and couldn't wait to see her. After the past day being so rough he just wanted to hang out with his best friend for a little bit.
Sorry it's been so long guys. You all know that I was in a car accident and then just got way too depressed to actually write. But this is me trying to make sure that you all get the ending that you wanted. I hope you all like the chapter :) Let me know what you think. And again, thanks for all the support!
