28. A Day With Louise

Chapter 25

"A Day With Louise"

Avery's POV

Over the next few days, it seemed like my life was repeating itself. I would wake up in the morning and Phil and I would go to see Dan in the hospital, only to find that he was in the exact same condition as the previous day. I would stay with him and his room and talk to him, even though he could hear me or respond to me. Around 2:30 pm, Phil would usually go back home, but I would stay with Dan.  Late at night, I would be struggling to stay awake, but I would refuse to leave Dan's side. Phil would come and try to persuade me to go home and rest, but I refused. At 11:45 pm, I would give in and return home with Phil. 

Five days had passed and I was doing the exact same thing everyday.

On the sixth day, I started the day off like I normally did. I got up in the morning to get ready, starting with a shower. 

When I got out of the shower, I got dressed and started drying my hair. When I was applying some light makeup, I heard a noise behind me that nearly gave me a heart attack.

"What are you doing?", a tired Phil asked from behind me.

"Oh gosh, Phil you scared me", I said, "Anyways, I'm doing what I do everyday".

"Well, today you're going to do something different", he said.

"What do you mean?", I asked.

"I mean you need to think of your own health, too. Yes, Dan is in the hospital and he hasn't woken up yet. But you're barely eating and sleeping. Plus the hospital said they'd call us if there was any change in Dan's condition. No. Today, you're doing something else", Phil said.

"Well, what did you have in mind?", I asked, slightly annoyed.

"It just so happens that our friend Louise is in Paris and she really wants to meet you. So you two are going to hang out today", Phil said.

"But-", I started to say.

"No. No buts. You are going to go out and have fun", Phil said.

"What about you?", I asked.

"Don't worry about me", Phil said, "I'll be fine. You go and have fun, okay?"

"Okay", I said.

"Alright. Louise is going to meet you at the coffee shop a block away at 10:15", Phil said.

"But I don't even know what she looks like", I said.

"She has extremely blond hair, you can't miss her. Trust me, you'll know her when you see her", Phil said as he exited the room.

It was sweet of Phil to think of me and to be worried about me, but I really wanted to be with Dan right now. But then again, I was getting some serious dark circles under my eyes and my stomach was growling intensely. Maybe this will be good for me.

When I had finished getting ready, I said goodbye to Phil and walked the block to the coffee shop where I was meeting Louise. I was a cute little corner cafe with a few tables out front and there was hardly any people. I walked in and was immediately greeted my the strong scent of coffee. I didn't know what Louise looked like, so I just looked around the coffee shop for someone that jumped out at me. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a girl with extremely blond hair sitting at a table in the corner of the room. That must be Louise.

Louise's POV

I was sitting in a table in the corner of the cafe waiting for Dan's girlfriend, or fiance I should say, to arrive. I knew what was going on with Dan and I knew that her and Phil were both taking it hard, but she was taking it the worst. Phil had asked me to try and cheer her up and take her mind off things, which of course I was happy to do.

Right at 10:15, a girl with dark brown, shoulder-length hair walked in the cafe. She was wearing a black t-shirt dress with black converse. That must be Avery.

She must have known who I was because as soon as she saw me, she started walking over.

"Excuse me, are you Louise?"< she asked shyly.

"Yes I am! And you must be Avery", I smiled.

"Yeah", she said quietly as she sat down.

"So tell me about yourself", I said, trying to keep the conversation going.

"'m American and I came over to England for school, but I ended up getting kicked out of my school because I didn't attend for a week. Dan and Phil let me stay with them, though. And Dan and I are dating...well actually getting married, but I assume you knew that", Avery said.

"Yes, yes I know. Congratulations", I smiled.

"Thank you. But before he proposed,", she began to say.

"Yes I know all about...her", I said. I knew Avery was referring to Angelica.

"And we fled to Ireland, but she somehow found us there and so we had to come to France. But of course, she found us here know the rest", Avery said.

"Yeah, I know", I said.

" about you?", Avery asked.

"Oh I don't want to bore you with the details of my life. Let's go have fun!", I said as I grabbed Avery's hand.

Phil's POV

All day, I had done nothing but aimlessly browse the internet. I too was taking a break from seeing Dan in the hospital for the day because I knew they would call me if there was any change in his condition. So far, nothing. After I woke up to tell Avery that she was going to hang out with Louise for the day, I went back to bed and didn't wake up until 12:37 pm. I assumed the browsing position on my sofa crease on the couch and re-watched episodes of Attack On Titan all day. It was now 3:22 pm and I was getting kind of lonely. I had only gotten up from my position to get food and go to the bathroom and my butt was starting to go numb.

At 3:30, I decided to text Avery to see how things were going. But as soon as I picked up my phone to text her, it started to ring.

It was the hospital

"H-hello?", I answered. 

"No, are you serious?", I asked.

"You aren't kidding?", I asked again.

"Um...uh...yeah thank you", I said. Then I hung up.

I couldn't believe what I just heard. At first, I didn't believe it. But I knew I had to call Avery and tell her the news.

"Hello?", Avery answered.

"Avery, the hospital called. It's Dan", I said.

Louise's POV

Avery and I had been shopping around Paris all day. At first, I could kind of tell that she wasn't really into it and that she was still feeling sad about Dan because she hardly looked me in the eye and she barely talked. But after a few stores, she started smiling and laughing a little.

We were in a nice clothing store and Avery had just picked up a navy blue t-shirt dress.

"Do you like it?", I asked.

"Yeah...but I have so many. I don't think I need it", Avery said as she started putting the dress back.

"No no no. Go try it on", I demanded.

"Why?", she asked.

"Because we're having fun and it's fun to get new clothes. Now go", I said as I pushed her towards the changing rooms.

Avery came out of the changing rooms wearing the navy blue t-shirt dress.

"Buy it", I said immediately.

"Really?", Avery asked.

"Yes. It looks great on you. I think you should get it", I said.

"Hmm...okay", Avery smiled.

When we walked to the cash register, I heard Avery's phone ring.

"Oh it's Phil", Avery said.

"Hello?", she answered.

Avery's face quickly went from "happy" to "shocked" and she dropped her phone on the floor. What could Phil have said that made her so distressed?

"What is it Avery?", I asked worriedly.

"It's Dan", she said with tears in her eyes.
