"He has to be at the hospital," I insist, not giving up my argument with Aubree. "Why would Niall be at the hospital?" she replies airily, her arms crossed defiantly. "I don't know," I admit. "I just know he was there in my dream." Aubree snorts. "Sorry, Ally, but what are you talking about? You had a dream. You were just at the hospital, so it makes sense." I shake my head, but I turn away. Liam chimes in. "I think Ally's right, guys. I think he's at the hospital." Lacey stares at Liam strangely. "What makes you think that?" Liam bites his lip. "Niall was...is...sick." Everyone stops what they're doing and fixes their gaze on Liam. "Sick?" I pitch. "What do you mean, sick?" Emma says warily. "He has cancer," Liam says. "He didn't want any of you to know because he thought everyone would be worried about his well being instead of camp of whatever." Everyone is obviously stunned. "What kind of cancer?" Harry replies. "Bone cancer," Liam answers. "He was in remission, but when Ally mentioned seeing him in the hospital in her dream, I got worried and realized he might not be in remission anymore." It's dead silent for a minute until Kat says, "What are we waiting for? We should go see him!" Liam nods in agreement, so me, Kat, Aubree, Emma, and Lacey pile into Emma's Prius and Harry, Louis, Liam, and Zayn head off in Zayn's Mini Cooper. When we arrive at the hospital, I feel nervous, which is stupid. Louis asks about Niall at the front desk and she gives us the room number, but tells us we can only stay for a little bit. I'm the first one in the room, and seeing Niall in the hospital bed reminds me of Ansley and I gasp a bit. "Ally," he says softly. "Come here." He hugs me and I try not to cry. "So you guys found out," Niall comments when we're all sitting down. Liam frowns. "I'm sorry. I didn't know what else to do. Are you mad?" Niall shakes his head. "I'm not mad, Liam." He pauses, then says, "I just started chemo today." Lacey gulps and I can see her holding back tears. "So you aren't in remission anymore," Louis says, not really as a question, but more as a statement. Niall just nods. "I'm sorry I left so suddenly guys, but I knew something was wrong and I had to leave right away." We all chorus back that it's really okay, and it's good he got to a hospital. "Hey guys, could I talk to Ally for a minute?" Niall asks. Everyone files out and we're left alone. "I hope this doesn't make you think differently about me," he says, looking at his hands. "No!" I cry. "Of course not, Niall." He smiles. "I'm glad. I missed looking at your pretty face every day." I blush and it's my turn to look at my hands. A nurse bustles in and sympathetically tells me I have to go. I hug Niall, tell him I'll see him tomorrow, and leave. As I'm walking out the door, I hear the nurse ask Niall, "Is that your girlfriend?" I hold the door open a little so I can hear his answer. "I'm working on it," he replies, and I smile and close the door.
