6. Calum's P.O.V

Everything is wrong. All of it. Why was Luke crying when I should be the one crying. The tears weren't building up, they weren't streaming down MY face they were streaming down his with loud sobs right after it. I wasn't upset anymore...I was frustrated.

I didn't realize it until...until this kid who has been my friend for the longest time, was lying on the floor balling his eyes out like a baby.

He likes her.

How though? He never met her before today. He couldn't stop staring at her. He wanted to be the one to go into the room with her. He wanted to be the mature one around her. Now it all makes sense.

This kid has been my best friend for a really long time and I met all his girlfriends. But they were all gone within 2 weeks. I don't know any girl who has lasted longer than maybe 3 weeks. I may give him a chance with her. If she lives.

They explained everything to me but then they shut the doors. They said that she was stable and that she was going to be alright. But I don't know if that's true anymore. I don't even know what happened. She's not suicidal. She's daddies little girl. I don't know what could have caused this. It wasn't super hot outside and this has never happened before. What is it?!?!

I tried talking to Luke but all I could get out of him was that it was his fault and he should have told me earlier. They came in big sobs so I could tell he was worried. I kinda started peicing things together, but then I remembered that I was never home. So I stopped trying.

They had to take her to an OR to get something out of her stomach. Michael and Ashton fell asleep and I started to but then Luke looked over and saw that the other boys were asleep and shook me saying ''I need to tell you something.''

''I already know that you like her. I saw that look in your eyes earlier. It's not really surprising. A lot of guys like her Luke.'' I said turning to him.

''That's not what I was gonna tell you. I was going to say that I think your dad it's abusing your sister. That's why she has those bruises on her face.''

How could I let this happen. I thought. She's my little sister. My only little sister. I never thought that something like this could happen. I always thought that she was 'daddy's little girl.' what would I do without her. We've been best friends since she was born. She's only 2 years younger than me so it want long before we became best friends.

''Why didn't you tell me before? I could have prevented this from happening.'' I asked getting worried. What else was happening while I was not there?

''I think there's something else you should know too.'' he said.

He started saying something like ''I think...'' and then he trailed off because the doctor came out with scrubs on with a sad look on her face.

That's when everything changed.
