From Luke's POV
"Heartbreak girl" I mumbled to myself as I sat on the chair in the changing rooms
For the last half an hour I've been crying which is shit, and I'm going to look like shit, feel like shit and probably play shit when I have to go on stage in 20 minutes I though
I sighed and rubbed my eyes
"Need some company?" Michaels head popped out from behind the door holding another Starbucks
"Sure, you have another already?" I cracked a small smile
"Na we got it for you" Michael handed me the plastic cup
"Cheers" I took it and stared at it for a couple of seconds
I stopped staring at the cup and quickly turned to look at Michael who was looking concerned
"It wasn't your fault ok? And me and the guys have been talking, if you wanted to cancel tonight and go see Leah we're cool with that"
He looked genuinely serious
"But- but the fans, no we couldn't do that to them they've been waiting ages just to see us"
"Yea we know Luke but Leah obviously means a lot to you and what's better? seeing someone today but it's a crappy show or later and it be a freaking awesome show!" Michael said shrugging his shoulder
He was right, it was probably going to be a shit show and I really wanted to go see Leah but the fans, they'd be so disappointed
"No we can't"
"Luke, fans we can make things up to but Leah she's not in a good place and you don't know what the outcome of that's going to be do you?"
Again, he was right and thinking about how serious things were with Leah made my stomach twist
"No I don't" I looked down again at the cold Starbucks that was making my hands numb
"We talked to the nurses while you were in here alone" Michael confessed
"What did they say?"
"She's stable but there's something wrong, I don't know they said a load of fancy words and that shit like doctors do but she's in a forced coma at the moment"
"A forced coma?"
"Yea" Michael said slowly "um there's um"
"There's what Michael? What's wrong with her?"
Him not telling me and acting suspicious made me feel worse
"There's swelling near her brain so they put her in a coma till that goes down and after they're going to take her off the meds to see if she'll wake up"
See? To see IF she wakes up?
So she might not. I could feel myself shaking and a wave of panic came over me
I'd fallen hard for a girl that now might not wake up
"Dude? Your going really pale, you ok?" Michael said concerned
"So do you want to postpone the concert we can make up something to tell the fans"
"Yea-um yea ok"
"Let's go then the guys are packing"
"They're already packing?" I replied turning to look at Michael with a questioning expression
"Haha well we guessed you'd want to go so we started packing so we could leave as soon as" Michael said glancing up at me
"Man I love you guys" I said as I got up and hugged Michael
"Come on then"
We both left the room and walked towards the main part of the arena which was no longer filled with our equipment
"Man you guys work fast" I said loudly as I looked around
This arena was ment to be filled with excited fans in less than 20minutes who'd waited for months just so watch us play and as much as I wanted to go see Leah I couldn't shake the feeling I was disappointing so many fans. But, like Michael said we can make it up to them some other time.
"Oi" ashton shouted
"Cars ready" he said waving us over
We headed outback to the car and there it was done no concert. Now that was over.
We drove past tones of fans walking through the streets with disappointed looks across their faces but finally we could see the hospital.
"You guys hop out I'll find a space" our driver mumbled
"Sure thanks" I replied
We walked up to the reception
"Leah smith please"
