Summer Camp

Ally was wishing for a fun filled summer at home with her friends this summer. But when her parents unexpectedly ship her off to camp, her plans are ruined. She's devastated, and vows to not have fun at camp the whole summer. But then Ally meets Harry, Louis, Zayn, Liam, and Niall, people she would never normally hang out with. They become instant friends. And when Ally falls for one of them, the results are like nothing she ever imagined.


18. Fate

A deep rumble of thunder startles me awake from my restless sleep. Outside the window I see lightning flash, and another crash of thunder sounds in the distance. Emma stirs and moans, "What time is it?" I check my phone. "It's 7:26," I tell her before burying my face in my pillow. "I wish I could go back to sleep, but I know I won't be able to," Emma says groggily. "Same here," I say, my response muffled by my pillow. "Hey, Ally," Emma says. I look over at her. "Yeah?" She bites her lip. "I'm sorry about Niall." I hesitate. "You've known him longer than I have," I point out. "I know," she says, nodding. "But you two have a special was like fate for you guys to meet here." I think about her words. I wouldn't go so far as to say it was fate, but it's too early in the morning for arguing. I mumble something undistinguishable and turn to face the wall. "I didn't mean to make you sad or angry," Emma replies quickly. "I'm not sad or angry," I respond. "I just want to know why something so atrocious has to happen to such a good person like Niall." Emma waits, like she thinks I'll say more, but I have nothing more to say. I don't want to cry again. "Please tell me you aren't going to the hospital today," she says. I shrug. "You can't Ally," she pleads. "Are you feeling okay?" I say, abruptly changing the subject. She winces. "I'm a little sore, but other than that I feel fine." I nod. "That's good." The growing tension between us this morning makes me feel like I'm suffocating. I get out of bed, change, and I am about to leave when Emma stops me. "Where are you going?" she asks. "Just somewhere to...think," I reply, but, seeing the worry in Emma's eyes, I add that I won't go far. She nods dismissively. When I step outside, the rain beats down on me, soaking me instantly. I instinctively head to the lake. I always think of Niall when I go there. On the way, I start to think about the day that Niall kissed me on the boat. I remember it so vividly, like it just happened. I start to cry despite my best intentions. The storm rages on around me, and a separate storm rages on inside me.


I've just dried off and sat down on my bed when my phone lights up with a text from Niall. I smile and read it. You didn't tell me your dad was in the hospital it reads. Wait...what? I read his message again. And again. My dad is in the hospital? Why didn't I know about this sooner? Why didn't anyone tell me? Sorry, I must have forgotten. I was always so worried about you. The last part is true. I don't think about much except for Niall these days. It sucks about his tumor. :( I'm sorry. Niall replies a minute later. A tumor? This is more serious than I thought. I need to find out why I'm only learning this now. Maybe that's why I was sent away to camp this summer. If my dad didn't have a tumor, I would never have met Niall. I would have never met the boy I now love.
