Hours had passed and nothing. It was six in the morning and I was woken up by the sound of a loud buzz over the intercom. I stand up from the floor looking around. An older boy and young girl sat together on the other side of the waiting room. They had red puffy eyes as if they were crying for days, but behind their swollen eyes were beautiful bright colored eyes. The little girl glances up at me, sadness in her eyes.
She leans over to the boy which I am guessing is her brother, whispering in his ear. His eyes trail up to me. He leans over to her also whispering something.
"Hey." The boy shouts, getting some nurses attentions.
I point to myself while looking behind. He takes the girls hand walking towards me.
"Hi, I'm Trent and this is my little sister Sammy." He brought his hand up and I received it and shook hands. "Sammy couldn't help but to recognize you from afar."
"Hi Lucas." She waved shyly, hiding behind her brother.
"Hello Sammy. Nice to meet you." I bring my hand up shaking hers. "You must know I'm Meghan's partner, correct?" She nods vigorously.
"I love you guys! I've been a fan of Meghan for years! I liked your guys single that came out a month ago."
"Glad to meet someone who supports us."
"Can I ask why you are here?"
I bite my lip. This little girls dreams were going to get crushed if I were to tell her what happened to Meghan. "Oh, uh, Meghan was coming to get her X-rays. We think she might have broken a finger."
"Oh I see." She nods, not saying anything else.
"Lucas Shaw?" I turn my head to see a nurse approach me.
"Oh, Meghan is in her room now. You can go in if you'd like." I follow her to the room Meghan was in. I catch a glimpse of her as I walked in. I run towards her, sitting by her bed, crying.
"Is she okay?"
"Meghan is alright, but we do want to keep her in for a day just to make sure she's still doing fine. She should be waking up in a bit." The nurse fills out the board by Meghan's bed before fleeing.
"I'm so sorry Meghan. I wish it was me lying in this bed. You deserve none of this." I take her hand in mine, kissing it.
"Lucas?" I hear her groan. I quickly sit up looking at her. She touches my face as if she was blind. "Yup that's you alright. The unshaven facial hair." She laughs.
"I'm glad you're okay. I was worried for you." I bring her in for a hug.
"You know I'm alright. I'm strong Lucas." She brought her hand up to my cheek smiling. "I'm alright, honestly. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you. Thank you." She whispered kissing the palm of my hand.
"Meghan!" We both jump at the sound of a shouting voice. Our heads snap back to the door to see a breathless Harry barge in.
"Harry? What are you doing here?" Her heart monitor started to go faster. I place my hand on hers rubbing small circles on top.
"I told Simon and he told the boys what happened." I answer.
"I was here in the states already so I had to come and see how you were doing. And don't worry, paparazzi didn't follow me." He glances over in my direction.
"Well I'm happy you came to visit Harry, but you don't have to stay." Meghan goes on blabbering.
"Lucas you seem tired. Do you want to go home and rest? I'll stay here with Meghan." Harry suggests.
"I'm okay. I just want to stay with Meghan." I assure him. I didn't want to leave Meghan if something happened and I wasn't here.
"Do you want something to eat? I have a feeling you haven't ate yet." He lightly pats my back.
"No, no. I'm fine." I shake my head.
"Mommy!" My eyes shoot towards the doorway to see Sammy run past followed by Trent. I get up running after them. Sammy runs out of the hospital towards the street.
"Sammy get back here!" Trent shouts to her.
I freeze as I see a car speeding towards Sammy. I run past Trent grabbing Sammy in my arms falling on the ground in the middle of the street. I get up running back towards Trent placing Sammy down.
"What is wrong with you Sammy? You could have killed yourself if it wasn't for Lucas to make that move! I can't lose you too." He brings her in for a hug.
"Is everything okay?" I ask.
"Yes. It's nothing you should worry about." Trent eyes were now even more red from his tears.
"I know we don't know each other well, but you can tell me. I'll help you with whatever is going on."
"Our mom died! Okay?" He snaps.
"Trent, I'm so sorry. I didn't-"
"C'mon Sammy. Let's go." He pulls her behind him.
"Where are you two going?" I stop them from going any further.
"To a foster home. We don't have any other family member besides from our lunatic dad."
"Come stay with me." I quickly spoke.
"You and your sister can stay with me. I don't want you guys to stay at a fosters home." I know I sound crazy, but I know how they feel. Losing family members and having nowhere to go. I didn't want to see them go through what I had went through.
"I'm sorry, but we don't go home with strangers!"
"Sammy trusts me, don't you?" I look down at her as she nods.
"Maybe she does, but I don't."
"What will make you gain my trust?"
"Dude, you're going to have to feed us, buy us clothes, a place to stay in, and so much more!" Now I understood why he didn't want to come with me. He didn't want me spending my money on them, or taking care of them.
"I promise to take care of you guys. Plus I have an extra room for the both of you. I'm willing to give you a home. I know how you guys feel."
He stared at me for a very long time. "Okay."
