Little Black Dress


Diana Rose has just lost her father. After loosing her mother to cancer she is now living with her aunt who is absent almost everyday. Diana is just a wallflower, never been kissed, never been loved by a boy other than her dad. At his funeral she bumps into someone who she hates with a passion ever since the first grade. That was the day, that everything changed.


20. Almost is Never Enough

Harry’s POV

How could I let this happen? She saved me so many times and now we’re back here in the hospital. I should have known Claire was bad news. I should have known.

“Mr.Styles?” asks a doctor shaking me out of my thoughts.

“Yes, can I go see her now?” I ask. Him and the nurse exchange a look. No please. No.

“Mr.Styles, Ms.Rose didn’t make it. She’s not breathing anymore. I’m sorry for your loss.” He says shaking his head. Wait, what? No. This can’t be happening.

I instantly fall to the floor bawling and I can feel the guys trying to hold me, but the only person I want to be held by is Diana. Only her.


It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve heard the news. I’m a mess. The only reason why I’m even stepping foot out of the house is for her. I hear a knock on my door.

“Come in.” I say with a dry throat.

“Dear were leaving now, you ready to go?” my mom asks. I can tell she’s been crying. Everyone has.

“Yeah.” I reply getting up and following her downstairs and then outside to the car.

The drive is silent. I still remember the time I went to her father’s funeral. I didn’t think I would have to go to another one so soon. No one did.

We pull up to the familiar cemetery and we slowly get out. Practically the whole town showed up. I guess she left a good impact on most people.

Everyone is seated around a coffin. I don’t want them to open it yet. No not yet. I can’t. I sit down in front of the coffin and instantly burst into tears. Many people have speeches that I listen to but then before I know it, I’m last to go.

I slowly walk up to the podium and take a deep breath.

“Hi, thanks for coming out to this funeral. I really wish there wasn’t one but…you can’t really predict what's going to happen.” I say with my voice cracking the entire time.

“When I met her, I was a different man. Not the man you see in front of you today, but a naïve, egotistical jerk. Some people say that you shouldn’t be with a person that changes you, but she changed me for the better. I don’t want to wake up in a world without her, but I know I’m going to have to. I keep calling her, she or her because I don’t want to say her name. It breaks my heart too much and I don’t want her to ever be gone, and I know she won’t. She’s in the clouds looking over all of us. She’s praying for all of us and watching over us. Though it may seem like she’s gone. She’s not.” I say full out crying.

“I love you Diana Rose, and we will meet again some day.” I finish off my speech and get down.

Everyone has flowers but they need my cue to close the casket. I walk up and see her lifeless body lying there. Her beautiful hair is draped over her dead body and her skin is paler that usual.

I lean down and kiss her cheek. I looked at her one last time. She’s wearing the same little black dress I saw her wearing at her father’s funeral.

I've saved her many times, but the one that really counted...I didn't. If I was one second earlier none of this would have happened. I would still be holding her in my arms, probably packing our suitcases for a summer trip before a long year at Manchester University. But instead I'm here at the cemetery alone. I close my eyes and I nod my head. They close the casket before lowering it.

That was the last time I ever saw Diana. Otherwise known as my hero or the girl I love.

Harry’s POV

I open my eyes and I'm shaking. It was all just a dream, she's still alive... I hope.

“Mr.Styles?” asks a doctor shaking me out of my thoughts.

“Yes, can I go see her now?” I ask. Him and the nurse exchange a look. No please. No.

"You can see her, but she might not respond. She's in In a coma but we're not sure when she's going to wake up...or is she's ever going to wake up." he replies

"But she's breathing?" I ask

"Yes, room 334." he says nodding.

I get up and run to the room. I see her lying on the hospital bed and I take a seat next to her. I know she might not hear me but I need to talk to her.

"Diana. I'm here for you and will be sitting by your side, night after night to help you through the dark. Don't let me go, please Diana, stay strong and keep holding on...I love you." a few tears escape my eyes and I don't even try to wipe them. I just stroke Diana's face.

Everything's going to be alright. It has to.

Claire's POV

It's 2am and my time to strike. I get out of my car and make my way towards the front. There's only one guard. Score.

I put on my limping act and wave at the guard.

"Can you help me? I hurt my leg!" I yell, he instantly looks worried and he sits me down in his chair.

"Let me go get some bandages and ice." he replies smiling.

"Thank you." I say as he quickly leaves.

When he's out of sight I check the camera's and find the one attached to Lexi's jail cell. I turn off the camera for her cell and then quickly set the screen back to normal. The man comes back with the ice and bandages and wraps up my foot.

"Thank you sir." I reply smiling.

"No problem what brings-" I cut him off by shooting him. I put a muffler on the gun so that no one would hear the shot. Finally I can get Lexi and leave this country. I take the man's clothes and quickly change into his uniform.

I walk into the prison and no one notices my new face. These prison guards are so shit. I walk straight to Lexi's cell and luckily no ones guarding it.

"God I thought you weren't coming!" she says excitedly. I roll my eyes before taking the keys and unlocking her. We start walking when one guard stops us.

"What are you doing with the pri-" before we can finish I shoot him.

"What! Why did you do that?!?" Lexi exclaims.

"Put on the outfit." I reply

"Why?" she asks

"Are you stupid? Wait don't answer that." I reply shaking my head. She rolls her eyes and quickly puts on his clothes. We drag him into a closet before leaving.

We get into my car and I start driving.

"Where are we going?" she asks

"California. I have a house out there." I reply

"What about the money from the will?" she asks

"I get the money in my account the second Diana is named diseased." I reply

"Oh cool!" she says smiling. I'm about to insult her for her idiotic comment when I hear police sirens. I pull over casually before 2 police officers walk up to me.

"Have you seen this-" he stops taking and pulls out his gun. I look at the pictures and it's a photo of me. Shit.
