Niall's POV

 I woke up to the horrid sound of my alarm going off. I jumped out of bed and turned the alarm off quickly so I didn't wake up any of the lads. This morning I had woken up before anybody because I wanted to make head start during the day. I took a quick shower and put on some jeans, a long sleeved t-shirt and some Nikes. I tiptoed over to Kat's room and opened the door slightly. There my beautiful little princess lay fast asleep. She looked so peaceful like nothing in the world could hurt her, which is pretty ironic since she had been hurt for so many years. I started to feel a burning in my chest. What was it? The burning in my chest last I realized it was anger and hatred. It was the anger and hatred I felt toward her father that had hurt her. He had taken away so much from her. He took away her happiness and her sense of security he even took her innocence and so much more. I keep promising that I will never let her feel that again. She will never feel the sting of someone's hand on her face again. I shut her door and tiptoed back down the hallway, I quietly went down stairs, avoiding the steps the creaked as much as possible, trying not to wake anybody. I went into the kitchen and made myself some coffee, while I let the coffee brew I wrote a not to the boys that read

  Dear lads,

       I woke up early this mornin to search for doctorsfor Kat. I should be back by noon. Don't tell Kat what I'm doing, I know she'd object to the idea. When I get back I'd love to her out somewhere fun so she can get used to the idea of what fun really is. Call or text me if you guys need me.


 I finished writing the note and set it where the boys could see it. I poured some coffee into a cup and started walking to the front door. I set my cup on a table and grabbed one of my jackets out of the coat closet and grabbed my keys to my car, took hold of my coffee and a list I had written of doctors names and hospital addresses from last night during the movie, and opened and closed the door quietly. I walked over to my car, unlocked it and climbed in. I set my coffee in in the cup holder and I put my keys into the ignition and turned the car on. I grabbed my GPS and put the first address from my list. The GPS gave me my first directions and I put my seatbelt on and backed the car down the driveway

  After about a twenty minute drive later I come to the first hospital called Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children. I parked my car and grabbed my list and started walking into the hospital. I walked in and went to the front desk. The receptionist looked up and asked in a not so friendly voice "How may I help you sir?" I replied with "Yes, I'm here to see Dr. Tucker for my daughter to have her hearing fixed." She started typing something on her computer and after a moment she finally turned to me and said " Sorry, Dr. Tucker doesn't work here anymore, he resigned not to long ago." I'm not going to lie my heart sort of dropped but I shook it off and said thank you and walked back out to my car. I got into my car and scratched the first name on my list. I looked at the second name and address and said to myself "Chester Hospital here I come." I typed the address into the GPS and I was off to Cheshire. 

   After another drive I got to that hospital and some other hospitals and have the same thing said to me again. By this time I was just a little aggravated. There was only one hospital I haven't gone to yet. I typed that in and started driving that way. On the way I just kept saying prayer after prayer that this hospital would be it. When I got to the hospital I parked my car turned it off and just sat there. I decided to say one last prayer "God, of you can hear me please let this be the hospital where my little girl is granted her hearing back. Please let her hear all the wonders of life, she deserves so much. I am so willing to give up my knee surgery for her ear surgery." With that I get out of the car and start walking towards the hospital.When I I walk in I have this good feeling in the pit of my stomach, I'm praying it's not just a figment of my imagination. I walk up to the receptionist at the front desk and she gives me a warm smile and says " Hello, welcome to Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, my name is Noelle how may I help you?" I smile back and say "Hi, my name is Niall Horan and I'm hear to see Dr. House about my daughter's hearing." She nods her head and like the others she starts typing on her computer, after her writing something down from her computer screen she quickly punches a phone number and and starts talking to somebody. After another agonizing minute of waiting she hangs up and says "Dr. House will be able to see in ten minutes. Please take a seat in the waiting room." I do just that and I seat down and sigh in relief.

    After ten minutes of waiting I'm called back and I have a seat in Dr. House's office. About five minutes later he walks in. He looks to be in his mid forties and is wearing a white coat and has messy hair. "Hello I'm Dr. House." He says with a small smile. I stand up and smile back at him and shake his hand while saying "Hi, I'm Niall." We sit down and he starts "So explain to what's going on with your daughter's hearing." I nod my head and say "Well she isn't my daughter, I adopted her and she's been deaf for ten years and her family never had enough money to have surgery." I explain. He nods his head and asks me "How did she become deaf? And at what age?" I take a minute to think and I finally remember and respond " She got meningitis at the age of five." He nods his head and takes a minute or two to thinkHe finally answers with "I can help you and your daughter." I couldn't believe what he had just said. I let it sink in for a minute and I smile really big "Thank you so much!"  He smiles too and nods his head. "The surgery is gonna be expensive as you know, the cost is £ 7,155 for each ear, so for both of her ears to be treated it's going to cost £14,310." When he said those number I think he expected me to hold my breathe but I didn't. I didn't even bat an eye I said "Okay, when can she come in?" I'm not going to lie he was surprised but he shook off his astonishment and looked at his calendar for a few moments and replied "To be fully honest I'm all booked until after Christmas." He says. My heart sinks, the lads and I have a tour coming up and we have to leave right after Christmas. I'm so disappointed but then I realize how selfish I'm being, Kat doesn't deserve to have to wait until we get back from our tour in order to hear. I notice I haven't given an answer yet so I say that it's fine and he marks it down in his calendar. We both stand up and shake hands and I say thank you and leave. I walk out to my car and get in. I don't drive away I just sit there for a few minutes. A few stray tears of happiness escape my eyes I smile really wide and I look up and mouth 'thank you'. I start my engine up and head home to my little princess who's waiting for me.
