"I just wish I could love you from the sidelines again and not worry about what you might think...I mean like...No...Never mind" she said, her face was redder then the cherries from my pie. She got up from the booth and stormed into the kitchen. I got up to follow her when I heard a girls voice yell-
"Maya you slut get out here, I need a ride home!" This girl had long chocolate brown hair that draped over her shoulders. She was wearing tight red skinny jeans, and an over sized red hoodie that said "Let Me Kiss You!" Those were the lyrics from our bands song "Kiss You" I bet she was a fan to. Her messenger bag was a faded brown with three hearts embroidered into it. They had names next to them but I couldn't make them out because she turned and looked at me. Her face lit and she screamed and said Oh My God!
Maya had walked out of the kitchen and looked super embarrassed. This made me feel even worse then I had before. Her face was flushed and looked dizzy. Her friend looked at Maya, then back at me, smiled devilishly and said full heartedly-
"She loves you, ya'know?"
I was shocked and apparently so was Maya. I turned to her only to see her fall to the ground, but not before slamming her the side of her head against the counter.
"MAYA!" I yelled. Her friend rushed over with me and I picked up her head and put it in my lap. Blood was pouring out of the gash on her head. Her friend was panicking. She kept saying-
"What the fuck do we do! What the fuck do we do?!"
"STOP!!-" I yelled at her then realized I didn't have her name, so I looked at her in a strained face until she said-
"Sarah. My names Sarah Bell. What the fuck are we going to do!"
"Sarah I need you to stop panicking! Call the police and tell them to bring an ambulance! Quickly she's losing a lot of blood!" I yelled back. I had to get something to stop the blood from pouring out of her head. I was about to put her head on the ground she I heard a mumble come from her mouth.
"What I can't hear you?" I said and leaned in closer. She whispered again-
"Does he love me to?" She said to herself before passing out again. I was speechless. Did I love her? I-I think I did. I barely knew her but I was head over heels for her. I had no time to think about this I had to find a rag to stop the blood. I gently put her head down and rushed into the kitchen. I found a cloth towel and ran back to Maya. I can't let her die, I can't let her die I kept thinking to myself.
"Ok ok I called the ambulance and they should be here any minute." Sarah suddenly said. I was relieved, but I still had to stop the blood. I put her head back on my lap and put the towel on her head and added a bit of pressure. I was so worried. I had to keep calm, I had to keep calm. I looked over at Sarah and she was on we phone again. I didn't catch most of the conversation but all I hear was Mady, Maya, blood, and hospital. Then I remembered that I had to call the lads and tell them what happened to Maya. They all felt guilty for what happened. I was about to get my phone when the paramedics arrived and took Maya to the hospital. I insisted that I ride with her to make sure she was alright because this was my fault. If I hadn't shown up she would have been fine. God I feels like such an asshole. I dialed Louis and said-
"Hey Lou, it's Niall."
"Hey Niall. How did it go, does she forgive us?"
"Yeah about that, I never got an answer because she stormed off after she accidentally told me she loved me. After that her friend came in and Maya passed out. We are on our way to the hospital because while Maya was falling she hit the side of her head against the counter." I explained
"WHAT SHES GOING TO THE HOSPITAL!!" I moved my phone away from my head because Louis was screaming so loud.
"Yeah we are. I'm going to miss rehearsal tomorrow, sorry. Bye for now." I hung up before he could say anything else.
"Mine and Maya's friend is going to meet us at the hospital ok? I just wanted to let you know so you don't freak out." Sarah said shakily. I had forgotten that she was even there.
"This must be really scary for you, huh? I'm sorry I caused all of this." I said.
"It's not your fault, and this isn't the first time Maya had to go to the hospital because of an injury, even thought this one wasn't on purpose." Sarah said quickly. I could barely make out the last part before she said-
"Our friend Mady is going to meet us there. She has ear length hazel hair and will probably freak out less then me but that doesn't mean she doesn't care!" Sarah explained with a fake smile. She was hurting the most out of all of us. What ever happened in the past with Maya, it really must have freaked Sarah out. God I hate seeing people sad, it makes me sad. I put my head in my hands and started to think. I had to make up for Saturday and today. God this was going to be difficult.
Once we arrived at the hospital Maya was taken into the ER to check her head wound. I told the doctor that I would be paying for her medical bill so they could take as many scans of her head to make sure nothing else happened. Sarah and I stayed in the waiting room. What Sarah said about Maya being in the hospital was really freaking me out. Sarah must have noticed this and said-
"I bet your thinking about what I said in the ambulance, right?" She asked.
"Yeah how did you know?"
"I just had a hunch. If you want I can tell you what happened? I mean I trust you and I bet Maya won't mind." She replied.
"I wouldn't mind you telling me, only if you want to tell me that is." I said
"Well it all happened four years ago in Tampa Florida. Maya was in a relationship with this guy named Nick. At first he seemed like the best guy, but after a year of him and Maya going out he lost his job and started to drink. He beat Maya and sent her to the hospital a bunch of time. Maya tried to break up with him several times but he jut said no and hit her. After going thought all that pain Maya decided that her only option was to run away. She had already been accepted to a collage in London with a full scholar ship in writing and volleyball. Me and Mady, our other friend, decided that if she was going to run away we would join her. We packed our things in a few boxes and flew to the UK. Maya and I were living together while Mady and her partner lived together. Maya said she needed space and got her own place, and job and was able to go to collage. Over the years her love for you grew. I thought she would never love again because of what happened with Nick, guess I was wrong." Sarah explained.
"Wow I didn't know that he past was so painful, I guess that's why she felt betrayed when the lads looked around her place." I said.
"She told me that only you were coming over. I got so jealous when all you guys were there. I would have killed to see Zayn. He's my favorite, but he's with Perrie so I have no chance." She sighed.
"What made you decide to go with her? I mean she wanted to run away, what about you? If you don't mind me asking."
"No worries, we all had our problems. I had an ex that wouldn't leave me alone after I dumped him for cheating on me, his name was Tyler. Mady fell in love with someone she shouldn't have and there was a lot of legal issues, but after she graduated Mady and her crush got together. Just to let you know Mady has a favorite in the band too. It's Louis but she's playing for the other team and is happy. She said that she only wanted to touch Louis's butt." Sarah said with a faint smile on her face.
"I feel so bad for you guys, I never knew that someone life could get so complicated. I'm really sorry."
"It's OK! No problems here, I mean all three of us are bit broken, but I hope that you will be able to fix Maya. I just want to see her smile again, not the fake one that is plastered to her face." The smile on her face grew and so did mine. I was about to say something else when the doctor came out and said
"Is there anyone here to see a Maya Glass?"
"We are!" Sarah and I said in unison. We looked at each other and smiled. We walked over to the doctor and he lead us to Maya's room. Glass. Her last name was Glass. It seemed like I needed to be extra careful so I didn't break her already cracked, glass heart I thought to myself before entering her room.
