31. Hero

Cole's POV

I sat in the car as Nic asked the man at the gas station for directions. It was all starting to sink in. Louis was shot and killed. Nic and I were kidnapped, Virginia and Niall were still locked in my closet. I'd have to sell the house Louis and I bought, together. I saw Nic thank the man and walk out with a big bag of what seemed to be food.

“I bought you chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate. And then of course I got us tons of junk food. Oh and obviously I got directions!”

“Let me drive. I don't like your driving.”

“Hey now! And I don't trust you to drive right now.”

“I'm the better driver and that's all that matters. Now let me drive.”

“Ugh. Fine Miss Bossy Pants!”

“That's what I thought.” I slid across to the driver's seat as Nic walked around.

When we were about 5 minutes away from home I got a call from V.



“Took you long enough to call me.”

“I have been for hours. Where are you?”

“On our way home.”

“Are you driving?!”



“V, what's up?”


“I can't talk about him..”

“Nicole, no, we need to.”

“Goodbye Virginia.”

“Nicole wait! Louis, well Louis'...”

“GOODBYE VIRGINIA.” I hung up my phone and threw it ou the window. Maybe I was a little emotionally unstable. And yeah, I probably shouldn't have littered like that, but I couldn't talk about Lou.


“I can buy a new one.”

“You just threw your phone out the window!”

“Oh well.”

“Not oh well! Pull over I'm driving.”

“We're like two minutes away. You're not driving.”

“I don't feel safe with your driving.”

“Then get out.”




When I pulled into the driveway there were paps everywhere, along with police cars, firetrucks, and an ambulance.

“Oh my God.” I said looking at the scene before my eyes.

“Whatcha thinking?”

“If there's any chance Louis is ok, I wonder how V and Niall are, what are the paps going to ask us?”


“Well here we go.” I got out of the car and the police bombarded Nic and I, to help get us inside.

“Are you two ok?”

“Physically? Yes. Emotionally, mentally? No.”

“Your boyfriend, Louis Tomlinson, correct?”


“He's been taken to the hospital. I have no info on his condition.”

“Thank you!” I said hoping things were finally looking up.

“Now we have some questions about your kidnapper.”

“Ok...” Nic said biting her lip.

“Do you know who he is?”

“We got his ID. It's right here.” I said taking it out of my back pocket.

“Andrew Richards?”


“Did he tell you why he kidnapped you?”

“He said and I quote 'You're hot, you're famous and I can only assume you're good in bed.'”

“Alright. Where were you being held?”

“It seemed like it was an old warehouse. Probably about 2 and a half hours away from here? Maybe 3?” Nic explained.

“How'd you escape?”

“Well Nic and I double teamed the guy.”


“We'd been taking some self defense lessons with our body guards. I kicked him in the head, Nic punched him. We both took shots at him.”

“Alright. I think that's all we have for now, but we may have more questions later. Now the EMTs would like to examine you and take you to the hospital. Or they can examine you and you may drive to the hospital yourselves and we can give you a police escort.”

“Thank you so much.” Nic said shaking his hand.

“Yes, thank you.” I said agreeing with Nic.

The EMTs came in to examine us. They said my head would need stitches, and honestly I forgot about the gash on top of my head. Other than that Nic and I would be completely fine. I figured it would be best for Nic and I to go to the hospitals ourselves. The police gave us an escort to the hospital.

When we arrived I ran out of the car to the front desk. “Louis Tomlinson please!”

“Are you family?”

“I'm his girlfriend.”

“I'm sorry, information can only be released to immediate family.”

“This may sound rude ma'am, and I'm going to apologize in advance. His immediate family lives in England. Now we're in California. How the hell is his family supposed to get from England to Cali? The boys of 1D, my fellow members of TOW and myself are Louis' immediate family. Ok? Now tell me how my boyfriend is.”

“Ma'am if I could, I would, but I can't.”



“No. Don't fucking ma'am me. What do you want? Do you want an autograph? A picture, money?”

“Nothing ma'am. All I'll say is 310. Whatever you make of it is up to you.”

“Thank you! Here take this.” I signed a piece of paper for her. And walked towards the elevator.

We got to room 310 and saw V and Niall sitting outside of it.

“Nicoles!” V squealed when she saw us. She embraced the two of us in a hug.

“How is he?” I said fighting back the tears.

“He's in surgery, but that's all we know.”

“But he's alive?”

“I suppose so.”

“How'd you guys get here anyway? I thought you were in my closet?”

“Yeah....you're going to need new doors.”

“I don't care, as long as Lou's alive.” I said eying them a little.

“Positive thinking Nicole.”

“I'm trying.” A few minutes later a doctor walked out in his pale blue scrubs, covered in scarlet blood. Louis' blood. Everything seemed surreal to me. And in those few seconds I felt like time was going in slow motion. With every step the doctor took the anticipation grew.

“Who's here for Mr. Tomlinson?”

“We are.” We all stood up.

“Ok, well I have some good news, and some bad news. Which would you prefer?”

“The bad.” I said hesitantly.

“The bad, he's in a medically induced coma, if he makes it, he is going to have a long and hard recovery. The good, he made it through the surgery alive. But please understand, anything could happen at this point.”

“But he's alive?!” I said happily, tears forming in my eyes.

“For now, yes.”

“How long will he be in the coma?" 

“For now, we're going to start with two days. If need be, we can shorten or lengthen it. If we feel like he's ready to come out of it tomorrow, we'll take him out. If he's not ready, we won't take him out.”

“Thank you so much Doctor.”

“You're very welcome. Is his wife here?”

“I'm actually his girlfriend.” I said raising my hand slightly.

“I'm going to take you to see him, will you others please wait here?” They all nodded as the doctor escorted me back.

Seeing him, absolutely lifeless, was horrible. He had tubes coming from everywhere. He looked so helpless. I'm a helper, I need to help people. But I couldn't help my boyfriend. I had nothing else to do but hold his hand, and sing.


Hero- Mariah Carey

There's a hero if you look inside your heart,
You don't have to be afraid of what you are.
And There's an answer, if you reach into your soul,
And the sorrow that you know will melt away.

And then a hero comes along,
With the strength to carry on.
And you cast your fears aside,
And you know you can survive.
So, when you feel like hope is gone,
Just Look inside you and be strong.
And you'll finally see the truth,
That a hero lies in you...

It's a long road, when you face the world alone;
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold...
You can find love if you search within yourself
And then the emptiness you felt will disappear...

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And then you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive.
So, when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And then you'll finally see the truth
See That a hero lies in you.

Lord knows dreams are hard to follow,
But don't let anyone tear them away.
Just hold on, and there will be tomorrow,
And In time you'll find the way.

And then a hero comes along,
With the strength to carry on.
And then you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive.
So, when you feel like hope is gone,
Look inside you and be strong.
And you'll finally see the truth,
That a hero lies in you.
That a hero lies in you...
