Harry was sitting on the couch all one and his eyes were red and puffy as the tears still fell from them. I didn't know why he was crying. I looked up at Niall and he nodded for me to go by Harry.
Niall walked away so I went over and sat next to Harry. As soon as I sat down, he grabbed me and pulled me into his embrace. He pulled away from me and I asked him what was wrong. He told me that he felt absolutely horrible.
"Why do you feel horrible?" I asked. He replied "Because I hurt you and I feel so bad, I never meant to..." "I am completely fine, Harry" I replied smiling. "Just a bump on the knee is all." I added. Niall came back and set the pills and water on the table.
"Just a bump on the knee, huh?" Harry said. "It's for my headache." I said and walked away to the sink. I took the pills and dumped the rest of the water in the sink and set the cup down next to the sink.
I came back out to the room and Zayn, Louis, and Liam were here now. Liam had me sit down and asked a bunch of questions about my knee and head. After he was done he told me that they had to go get ready but he wanted me to go see a doctor and I looked around at the other boys and they nodded in agreement with Liam. So I promised to go.
I said goodbye to the boys and walked out of the dressing room along with Niall and we walked to the outside door where Paul stood. When we got to him he looked at us and smiles and noticed we were holding hands. He spoke and said "Ah, Niall, what can I do for you?" He added a friendly smile.
"Paul, I need you to do me a favor." Niall said. Paul replied saying, "I live to do you favors, Master." They both bursted out laughing and I stood there awkwardly. Niall then said "I need you to take Em to the hospital, she hurt her knee and hit her head. We just want to make sure everything's okay with her."
Paul nodded and said to me, "ready to go?" I looked worriedly at Niall and he said, "it's okay Emmi, Paul will take good care of you." He added a smile and placed a kiss on my lips. Paul opened the door and stepped out and held it open for me, I slowly let go of Niall's hand and walked out the door.
It was so loud outside, but thankfully the car was close. We got to the car and Paul opened the back door on the passenger's side and closed the door behind me when I got in then he got behind the wheel.
As we were driving he tried to make small talk by asking me, "So what are Em and Emmi short for?" I replied saying, "Emilyah." "Well, that's a really pretty name." Paul said smiling. Suddenly everything started spinning, I felt really dizzy. I spoke out and said "Paul, I feel dizzy..." I felt the car car stop and he ran over and lifted me out of the car, he carried me into a building and I realized we were in a hospital.
Paul set me down on a stretcher and suddenly everything stopped spinning. I sat up and looked into Paul's worried eyes and said, "I'm alright, the dizziness went away." They laid me back down and one lady held Paul back.
We got to my room and I slid from the stretcher to my bed and they set the bed so I was sitting up. I told them about my head and knee and they took a scan of my head and an X-ray of my knee. "No damage to either." the doctor said. "But we are going to put this in your knee and we ask that you don't wear flip flops. If you feel that your knee gets worse, come back in and we will give you crutches. And for your head, here are prescription pain killers for your head and they will help with your knee too. The instructions are in this bag here." he said handing me the bag with the bottle of pills.
He slid the sprain onto my knee and told me I was free to go. I got up and tried to quickly walk to the door when pain shot through my knee. I stopped and clutched my knee. The doctor came up next to me and handed me crutches and told me to take it slow.
I nodded and headed out to Paul and we left and went back to the arena. We went in the same door we went out but now the screams were in the arena. I made my way to their dressing room and Paul opened the door for me. I hesitated and thought about how they would react. I didn't want them to fuss over me. I slowly walked into the room. The boys watched me enter in shock and Harry got up and left the room...was he mad at me?
I gave my crutches to Paul and limped over to the boys. Liam said he was gonna find Harry so he got up and left. The other three boys helped me in the couch. I was sitting on the couch with my legs up so I was taking up the whole love seat couch. Louis and Zayn sit in the chairs on the other side of the coffee table across from the couch, and Niall lifted up my legs and sat down so my legs were laying across his lap. My knees are right above his thighs so he takes a pillow and gently puts it under my bad knee. So far no one has said a word since Liam left.
I look at Zayn and say "Can you please get me a glass of water and something small to eat?" He asks why I need food and I tell him I can't take the pain killers on an empty stomach. He nods in understanding and comes back with a water bottle and a banana.
"You like bananas, right?" he asked. I nodded and thanked him. I are the banana and took the pills. Niall asked me if I want to go for a walk and I looked at my knee and at him. He said "Well... I suppose I could give you a piggy back ride..." I nodded and he got up and I hopped on his back and we headed out the door.
We walked all the way down to the end of the hallway and Niall took a key out of his pocket and looked around to make sure no one was around and then unlocked the door and walked in. He shut the door behind us and turned on the light. It was the same dressing room as the other one. He walked over to the couch and very carefully set me down. He sat down next to me.
He started to speak saying, "We've never met, but I have known you for about 2 years now." "I started working at this company 2 years ago..." I said. "I know. I always see you before shows.... I always listened to you sing because you are amazing. I guess I fell in love with you and now that I can actually talk to you, I fell harder." he said looking away. "Wanna know a secret?" I asked making him look at me. "You were always my favorite band member, and to me you're defs the cutest." I said winking making him blush.
"So this whole 2 years, you watched me but never came to talk to me?" I asked. "I didn't know what to say..." Niall replied. "How about, 'Hey, I'M NIALL FREAKING HORAN!'" I said and we laughed. We stayed quiet for a while and then I felt his lips smash into mine. I felt like I was watching a firework show because of the sparks. I still got butterflies even though I was totally comfortable around him.
All of a sudden my phone started ringing. I looked at the caller ID and it said "Mum". I sat up on the couch and hit answer. "Hello mum" I said. "Do you have a minute? I need to talk to you about something." she said. "Sure" I replied. "The court called me today.." She said trailing off. "Really? Mum, what did they say?" I said. "They said.... it's court ordered...that...you see your father... Honey, I'm so sorry." my mom said sounding sympathetic.
"WHAT?!" I yelled. "Uhmm, I will call the court when I get home." I continued. "Ok sweetie. The court wants to hear from you so when you get home, give them a call. I won't be home for the next two days so you'll be on your own. Your aunt is sick so we are going to check up on her. We will leave you a car, keys will be on the table along with 400$ for food and shopping if you get bored. See you in a couple of days. Love you! Goodbye Em." my mom said. I replied saying, "Okay mum, thank you. Love you, bye." I ended the call and put my phone back in my pocket.
I sighed and Niall asked me what happened and I told him. He stared at me for a long while. "What" I said. "You're not gonna be alone for two days..." he said. "What do you mean?" I asked. "You're mine this weekend." he said and then winked.
We went back to the boys and I had to leave so they could get ready but before I left, the boys all took my phone number and snapchat name. I then hugged the boys and said goodbye and left.
As soon as I went out into the arena from backstage, I was attacked by Abby and Molly. They said they saw me fall both times and we sat down and I told them everything that happened between me and Niall.
"THAT'S SO CUTE!" Abby yelled excitedly. "But you're okay right?" Asked Molly. "Thanks Abby, and yes I am okay." I said. "Well, we were going to ask you if you would like to have a sleepover with us before everything happened. I meander still want to but with everything that has happened we don't blame you if you don't want to." Abby said. "Yeah, we understand if you don't want to. We just want you to get better." Molly said sympathetically.
"Actually," I said, "a sleepover sounds really fun! We can stay at my house because my parents won't be home to fuss over me." "Don't worry, we will fuss over you for them." Abby said winking.
We heard the mob of girls coming in to find their seats so we took ours. Front row and we had the aisle seat and the two in from that. Abby and Molly had me sit on the aisle seat because I was the injured one.
Once everyone was seated, they started performing. I noticed that Niall was looking over at me a lot which made me happy. They first sang Does He Know, then they sang Heart Attack, then Rock Me, and then they announced that they were going to sing C'mon C'mon, which is weird because they didn't announce any of the others.
Harry spoke up and started talking. "We would like to thank all of you for being here and we would like to recognize one VERY special young lady who is here with us tonight." Suddenly he looked at me and said, "Em, will you please come up here?"
I got up and pointed to my crutches and he handed his mic to Liam and met me by the bottom of the stairs on the side of the stage. He carried me up the stairs bridal style and set me down at the top. I made my way to the boys. Niall put his arm around my waist and spoke to the crowd saying....
