The event changed everything, but a story can’t have a central theme unless there are walls to support it, roads that take you there and on, because I can’t just give you a fact and you understand it fully until I explain it. So here it is; I love Harry Styles, but the roads that I take you on to understand may not be one’s that you really want to travel, so heed the signs on the barren roadsides, and understand. I’ll tell you about the days, thirty before and thirty after, encompassing Harry’s attempted suicide.


51. 13 days after

13 Days After:

The next phone call I get is not from Harry, but from Amy Lee's mother. I am shocked, but I play along and greet her, asking about her day before she carries on to her reasons for calling."Amy Lee has been talking about you and Harry and she wants you to visit. Do you think you could…?""Absolutely," I say instantly, and I do mean it. I enjoyed little Amy Lee and staying with her for a while might lift his spirits.She sat in her hospital bed, a coloring book in her lap and her thumb in her mouth. As she catches sight of me, she quickly removes it and beams."Louis! You came to see me!""Of course I did," I reply, her infectious enthusiasm brightening my tone.. "I missed you!"It may be strange to miss someone you had only known for such a brief period, but when a person puts a mark on you, it's there forever, and Amy Lee had certainly done that. I love her energy and enthusiasm, and I can't even bear to remember what Harry had told me about her."How is Harry?" she asks, breaking into my thoughts."He's fine. Getting better all the time."She let out a little puff of breath."I'm so glad. Come read to me!"Just like that, she refused to dwell on the negative, refused to stop and think about the 'what ifs' and the 'whys' and she simply moved forward. I hate to think about death stopping her.The book in her lap was Cinderella.I didn't mind it in particular, so I read it, twice and then three times, sitting beside her on the bed, until she falls asleep on my shoulder.
