They Don't Know About Us

Hi, my name is Scarlett. I'm writing an article for a magazine. The topic is high school stories. A flashback into the past is exactly what I need for this article. So I called in a few friends to help me explain everything. It's like a story book, coming to life.
I was a shy junior, who moved schools, so many times because of getting bullied. It's my first day of school, & I've already made new friends...Harry, Louis, Liam, & Niall. This year will change more to find out how.
(Present time to past time)


14. Darkness, Voices, and My Prince

Scarlett's POV:

Everything was dark still...but I could hear voices. I heard the guys comforting Niall...he sounded like he was crying.

Liam: mate, she'll be alright. I promise.

Niall: I know, but I just can't believe she had to deal with all of this.

Louis: Niall...I think you need some rest. You look really tired...You haven't slept in a few days.

Days? I've been asleep for days? Am I in a coma? What's going on?

I started to panic...then I heard beeping noising getting louder and louder.

Niall: Someone get a nurse!

I heard people rush in the room...then everything froze. I felt a big shock as pictures of my past were flashing through my mind. My first day of kindergarten. My first date with some weird dude that I don't even remember the name of. Lots of other things, too. But...then the first time I met Niall popped was fading away. I started to cry and it froze. It came back to normal size...It flashed to the present in a hospital bed and Niall right next to me. I saw a white light clearing the screen...I saw the ceiling of a hospital room. I was awake...finally.

Scarlett: N-Niall? *turning my head towards him*

Niall looked up, looking sleepy and worried. Then, his eyes widened and filled with excitement.

Niall: Scarlett!! You're awake!

He kisses me...I missed his kisses...I don't know how long I was out, but it felt like forever without him. We broke the space between us as people walked in. It was the guys...

Louis: Hey Scarlett! We're all so happy you're awake. We were all so worried about you. Niall never left your side...and when he had to use the restroom...he left the door open, meaning you could say that if you were awake you saw his p--

Niall: Louis! No!

We all busted into fits of laughter, while Niall's face got beat red. I stopped laughing and looked him. He looked embarrassed, but extremely tired. I just smiled at him and he smiled back.

Harry: alright everyone...lets give these two love birds some alone time. It's been awhile.

I smiled at Harry, mouthing "thank you" to him, as he nodded and smiled in response. They all left the room, leaving Niall and I in dead silence. I sat up in the bed and scooted over, so Niall could sit in the bed with me. I patted the bed, signaling him to sit down. He sat down next to me, but was distant.

Scarlett: Niall, whats wrong? I'm awake now...I'm okay.

He didn't respond; he just kept staring at the pale hospital walls without any expression on his face.

Scarlett: Niall...please. I've missed you...please talk to me.

Niall: I'm sorry, its just...*deep breathe*...your heart stopped.

Scarlett: it what?

Niall: It stopped...loud beeping filled the room...then it went dead silent. I was freaking out. I screamed for someone to get the nurses or a doctor. They shocked you back...your heart was beating faintly, but it was working. I saw a single tear flow down your face...and you whispered something. Harry and Liam said you whispered my name...but I couldn't hear you well enough. I though I lost you...I wasn't going to be able to live without are and always will be my princess. I promise you that.

Scarlett: but I'm okay now...please, forget this happened and will you please stop worrying about me? I don't like you worrying about me; I'm okay, I promise. Please my prince.

Niall: okay love...please just don't do that to me again...promise?

Scarlett: I can't promise you that. I-

Niall: you're what?

*knock knock*

The doctor walks in...

Doctor: Hello Ms.Harris. I wanted to inform you, that you are okay to go home tomorrow...if you get a small surgery tonight for an ICD to be placed. An ICD is a small machine box that shocks you if you ever go into any other irregular heart brings you back if you were ever to go back into the situation we had to deal with a few days ago. 

Niall: why would she need it?

Scarlett: Niall...I'm a heart patient. These things have been happening quite a lot these couple of years. But I'm fine, I promise. And sir...I'll do the procedure. When exactly tonight though?

Doctor: in about 3 hours...that's when the surgeons were ready the soonest.

Scarlett: alright..thank you.

The doctor walks out of the room; Niall turns to me. I was so scared about what Niall was going to say. He sat there and looked at me...on the edge of tears, he hugged me.

Niall: I'll never let you go. *hugging me*

Scarlett: I love you Niall

Niall: I love you too Scarlett. Please don't let whatever Jacob was saying influence anything...I. Love. You. with all of my heart. You're my princess.

The door swings open, as my parents run in.

Mrs.Harris: Oh my gosh honey are you okay? I we heard about everything...I'm so sorry you had go through this alone.

Scarlett: I'm fine mom, and I wasn't alone. Niall was with me through it all. *pointing to him*

She looked up and smiled at him. 

Scarlett: I've never been so happy for my daughter to be with a guy in my life, until she met you. *hugging him*

I laughed a little, then saw Niall's face...which made me laugh even harder. I love him so much, and my mom seems to approve haha. I just sat there smiling at them. They were talking about tour. It was only a few minutes before my procedure.

Scarlett: mom...I want alone time with Niall before I go back for the surgery....please?

Mrs.Scarlett: oh..yes, of course. *she got up quickly and headed out of the room.*

I slowly got out of the bed and stood in front of Niall. He just smiled at me.

Niall: I love you so much.

Scarlett: I love you so much too.

He hugged me, and I hugged him back. We stood there in silence...holding each other in our arms. We craved kisses, but we both knew it wasn't a good time. There was a knock on the door, but we ignored it. Someone cleared their throat and knocked on the door again. We looked up, and saw the guys standing at the door with the doctor.

Doctor: It's time for your procedure.

I looked up at Niall and gave him a small kiss.

Scarlett: I'll be out soon...wait with the guys and rest a little. I want to see you after the procedure. Take care my love.

I let go of his hands and gave him a reassuring look. He smiled and nodded at me. I sat in the wheelchair and they gave me a medicine to put me to sleep during the procedure. I remembered nothing....then I woke up.

I saw the bright blue eyes I loved. He was sitting next to my bed, smiling at me.

Niall: hello my princess

Scarlett: hello my prince

Niall: the doctor said we could head out an hour after you woke up if there were no complications.

Scarlett: that sounds great...can we go home and relax? I mean like have everyone over and just talk?

Niall: of course my love.

~one hour later~

I was being released from the hospital...and was heading home. I got home and saw the place was all cleaned up and everyone was sitting int the living room

Scarlett: hey guys!

They all jumped up and gave me hugs; one by one. Finally I was with the people that cared about me. I was home with my friends and my prince by my side. I couldn't think of a better welcoming home gift.
