"Oh my god..." Molly whispered as she buried her head into Luke's shoulder. Luke's eyes turned to mush as he smiled at us all and pulled her into a tighter hug. His huge body towered over her.
I watched as Molly clung to Luke as though she was clinging on for her life, as though it was all she had. But to be fair, it kinda is all she has.
"Let's all get a hug in, hey Luke?" Calum teased from next to me.
"Sorry! Sorry to break up our moment Molly, the other boys want to see you!" Luke smiled at Molly. He pulled away and came and stood next to me. He slung his arm on to my head and left it there.
"Whoa, am I some sort of human arm rest now?" I laughed sarcastically.
"Yup!" Luke smirked.
"Wow!" I chuckled.
"Hey, thanks for getting in touch with us about this one. She's special, you both are..." Luke smiled down at me. We both watched as Molly hugged each of the boys in turn, trying to take in what was happening.
"Wh-what are you guys doing here?" Molly finally stuttered out.
"We came to see you!" Ashton smiled.
"How?" Molly beamed at us all.
"Your good friend over here!" Mikey smiled and pointed in my direction. Molly climbed out of bed and raced over to me as best she could.
"Thank you!" She squealed and hugged me tight.
"Mollio, you know I'd do anything to make you happy!" I smiled and hugged her tight, burying my face into her curls.
"Molly we brought you some treats, and you Amber. We brought you each a signed CD and a signed book, and then a band tshirt, a wristband and some chocolate because everybody loves chocolate!" Luke smiled and handed us each a bag.
"Thank you so much!" Molly was glowing, absolutely glowing with happiness. This is the happiest I have seen her in a long, long time.
"It's our pleasure!" Calum smiled. Molly looked tired standing up and went to make her way back to bed.
"Here, let me help!" Ashton smiled, taking the bag off Molly's shoulder and placing an arm around her to help her back into bed. Molly climbed in and Luke pulled back her blankets to help her to climb in.
"Oh my god you have a 5SOS blanket! That's incredible!" Luke smiled.
"Yeah, Amber got it made for me!" Molly blushed.
"Bet you could get used to this!" Mikey laughed.
"Oh god yeah, what time do I have the pleasure of your company until?" Molly smiled.
"well, we kinda have to go soonish, you know we're on tour with one direction at the moment right?" Calum explained.
"Oh yeah, course I do, that's cool" Molly said as she tried to smile. Although secretly, she was a bit disappointed to see them go.
"But... We have something for you!" Ashton smiled.
"Luke, you can do the honours?" Mikey smiled, raising his eyebrows at him. Luke rolled his eyes and pulled a piece of paper out of his pocket with a red ribbon tied around it. I wonder what that little altercation was all about?
"Here you go beautiful!" Luke smiled, handing Molly the piece of paper whilst he did a little bow and grinned at me. I know what this is...
I really don't understand what's going on, I accepted the piece of paper off Luke and carefully untied the ribbon, dropping it onto my bed.
"You know what this is don't you?" I glared, eye balling Amber jokingly.
"Maybeeeeee?" She smirked cheekily. I smiled back and unrolled the piece of paper. My eyes scanned the words on the page; "BoyBand Sensation 5 Seconds of Summer hereby extend their invitation to Molly and Amber to accompany them on their tour with One Direction for a 28 day period..."
My eyes flittered around the room excitedly.
"Bu-" I began, my hand flying to my mouth and tears in my eyes. Luke sat down on the side of my bed and took my hand.
"Listen Molly, when Amber wrote to us and told us your story, there was nothing more that we wanted than to make you happy. We've spoken to the hospital and you're still going to get your treatment and things, one of us will accompany you to your appointments. But the main thing is, we want to help you get some things crossed off your bucket list if that's okay with you?" I stared in awe. Luke's thumb was gliding across the back of my hand and I hadn't even noticed.
"I don't even know what to say" I whispered as a tear escaped and slowly rolled down my cheek.
"Hey..." Luke gave a little chuckle and wiped the tear from my eye with his free hand. "Don't say anything apart from accepting the invite maybe? I know Ambers packed you both bags full of stuff and they're waiting in one of the rooms for when you're ready..." He smiled.
"What, you mean...." I gasped.
"Yep, we're going right now!" Mikey grinned.
"That is... If you want to?" Calum smiled, raising his eyebrows at me.
"Of course! Of course I want to!" I laughed.
"Thank God for that!" Ashton sniggered and we all laughed. "I mean, how awkward would that have been if she didn't want to come!" Ashton sniggerered, Luke shot him a look from the bed next to me.
"Do you need anything Molly, before we go?" Mikey asked.
"Well yeah, I need to get changed and have a shower and do my hair and..." I blabbered.
"How about you just chuck on some clothes and you can get showered with us? Well not with us, but at the hotel?" Calum laughed.
"Are you sure?" I smiled.
"Of course, now would you like any help getting dressed?" Luke asked, who was still holding my hand.
"Well yeah, I need help but I'll get a nurse thanks!" I cringed.
"Sure?" Luke asked standing up.
"Very!" I laughed.
"I'll go get one of them" Amber smiled, walking out of the room. I smiled as the boys followed and Maggie walked in in their place.
"Oooh well aren't they handsome young men?" Maggie teased.
"Yeah!" I sighed dreamily.
I sat outside Molly's room with the boys. I could really get used to this.
"Can I ask a question?" Luke asked, looking at me.
"Yeah, go for it?" I smiled, sitting up properly.
"Is it terminal?" He asked. I didn't want to answer, I don't even think I could spit out the word. I just nodded my head slowly.
"Ah..." Luke sighed as pain flooded his eyes and he slammed his head back against the wall, closing his eyes.
A minute later, Molly appeared in jeans and a superman tshirt. She looked so happy.
"I'll get your bags!" Maggie smiled and gave Molly's shoulder a squeeze. Maggie came back and placed my bags on the floor, I went to pick it up but Ashton had already slung my rucksack over his shoulder and Calum had my suitcase.
"We'll walk ahead to the car?" Mikey smiled at Molly and Luke before the rest of us started down the corridor.
"What's that all about?" I asked frowning.
"Luke just thought Molly was really pretty and he's not really shut up about today since we organised it, so we're just teasing him a little." Ashton chuckled from next to me as we made our way into the car park.
"Call shotgun!" Calum hissed in my ear.
"Shotgun!" I yelled.
"Dammit Amber, I was just starting to like you!" Mikey sulked as we reached the car and climbed into the back with Ashton.
"Sorry guys!" I chuckled.
"We can chuck Luke and Molly in the back, he'll like that!" Calum laughed.
"Well would you look at this!" Ashton teased, gesturing out of the window. I turned to look at where he was pointing. Luke had a rucksack on one shoulder, a suitcase in his hand and an arm around Molly's waist.
"Look how he's absolutely crippling his right half of his body just so he can put his arm around her! Bless him!" Mikey sighed.
"Well that's a bit cute!" I smiled.
"He's a good'n our Luke!" Calum smiled. It was only now that I saw Molly out of her hospital room that I realised how ill she really looked. She was pale and tired and weak and she'd lost weight. I hadn't even noticed it since I'd only ever seen her in her bed for the past few months. Luke flung open the boot, you could see the strain in his face as he unloaded the rucksack from his shoulder and flung the bags into the boot. He rolled his shoulders a little before walking himself and Molly round to the side of the car.
"You two are in the back!" Ashton smiled.
"Alright cheers!" Luke smiled. Mikey reached out his hand to help Molly into the car. She stepped between them both and slumped across the seats in the back. There were three seats but Luke filled two of them. He scrunched his legs up in the back and put on Molly's seatbelt before securing his own.
"Are we ready?!" Calum shouted from next to me.
"Woo...Yeah!" Ashton yelled enthusiastically, we all laughed.
"Let's go then!" Calum started the car and a huge grin spread across my face as the car rolled out of the parking space.
I sat talking to Calum for a lot of the journey, Ashton and Mikey were sat head banging with their headphones on. We talked about music, and travelling and college and food. He's so lovely.
"We're here!" Calum announced as we pulled up outside a rather grand hotel in Central London.
"Shhhh!" Luke called from the back, gesturing to Molly who was slumped out on his legs asleep.
"That cannot be comfy, she's on your girly legs Luke!" Mikey laughed.
"You guys go get the room keys and then I'll carry her up when we know what room she's in?" Luke called from the back. We all agreed and got out of the car. I quietly closed the door and met Mikey's gaze as he raised his eyebrows at me.
"See what we mean?" He laughed.
"I do!" I giggled as we walked towards the hotel quickly before anyone recognised them...
