We have all got secrets

Rebecca has been an orphan her entire life. When she reaches the age of 18, she has to leave the orphanage as she has become too old to stay. After living on the street for a few years, Rebecca finally gathers up the courage to look through her personal file in hope of finding her birth parents. Isn’t that what every orphan wants? At least that’s what Rebecca wants.

Family life isn't as easy as Rebecca originally thought. Her parents neglecting her, secrets, love and horrible things happen along the way to success.

11. Selena

“Please, stay out here,” a nurse orders me and closes the double doors in my face. The big glass window is blocked with a thick, white curtain making me unable to see what’s happening on the other side. When paramedics finally reached the scene about half an hour ago everything became a lot more hectic. The paparazzi’s were shooed to the side and basically told to shove their expensive cameras up a place we’re better off not mentioning. I don’t know what happened to Vanessa after the ambulance door closed after me, but she’s the least of my worries right now. All I care about is my sister’s wellbeing and right now things are not looking very good for her. I was offered to get examined but I declined and told them to use their time and energy on Rebecca as she has had it a lot worse than me. I don’t even want to think about how I look right now, not that I want to know anyway.  

“Louis?” I say the moment he picks up my call. When I thought of people to call he was the first person I thought about. I know how much Rebecca means to him. 

“Selena?” He sounds both relieved and like he can’t believe that it’s actually me. “Is that really you?” 

“Y-Yeah, Lou, it’s me,” I reply, my voice thick with unshed tears. I try to swallow the lump in my throat but it only grows bigger. My back hits the wall behind me and I take a deep breath. 

“I-Is Rebecca okay?” I almost feel like rolling my eyes and under any other circumstance I probably would have. 

“Yeah, a-about that…” I trail off and leave us in an anxious silence. My own sobs are the once to interrupt the silence. 

“Where are you?” Louis asks. I can hear the worry in his voice and it only makes me want to cry even more. 

“T-The h-hospital down-down t-town, th-third floor,” I manage to splutter through my gut-wrenching sobs, my voice ending up in a whisper. 

“I’ll be right there, Selena,” he says and hangs up the phone. I drop my phone on the white tiles, probably breaking the screen in the process but I honestly can’t care less right now. It’s just a phone, it doesn’t mean anything to me. I place my hand over my mouth in an effort to muffle my sobs but to no use. I walk towards the chairs lined up on the wall, but I don’t get far before my knees give in and I tumble to the floor.

“Selena!” Multiple voices yell from down the hall. I look up from the ground and look in the direction of the voices. My eyes are blurry from my tears so all I can see is five very blurry figures until they stop in front of me and my eyes slowly adjusts. At some point in the last week or so I lost my contact lenses so my world is quite blurry right now, also without the tears. I reach out for the chair in front of me and hoist myself up on my feet as the guys stops in front of me. They all start talking at the same time. 

“What happened?” Harry. “Is she okay?” Liam. “What happened, Selena?” Louis. “Why do you look so horrible?” Niall. 

"Thanks a lot Niall," I interrupt laughing softly. 

“Well, you do,” he defends himself. I nod.

“Yeah, I-I know,” I whisper and run a hand through my loose, greasy, untamed hair. Ew, I really need a shower. Suddenly Louis is standing directly in front of me with his hands on my shoulders. He looks me right in the eyes and asks sternly, “What’s going on, Selena?” My hands starts shaking along with the rest of my body and tears start to well up in my eyes again. I suddenly don’t know how to speak as I start stuttering my way through an explanation. 

“I-I… Rebecca - unconscious… Flashes… I-I don’t know what’s going on, it’s all just a blur, Louis. No one will tell me anything,” I whisper and covers my mouth with my hands as I begin sobbing all over again. I just can’t help it. 

“Shh, shh, it’s okay. It’s okay,” Louis whispers into my ear as he holds me tightly. I let out a frustrated sound and push him away from me. I take a step back and throws my hands up in the air, twirling around myself once before I look at him once again. 

“That’s the thing, Louis!” I yell, “It’s not okay, nothing’s okay! My twin sister is in that room right now because of me. My big sister fainted in my arms and there was nothing I could do about it. She has been tortured, used, abused and insulted for the past I don’t even know how long,” I scream, officially losing my shit, “and I couldn’t do anything. All I could do was sit and watch with some sicko was taking the last of my sister’s sanity and crushing it under his cheap boot. Two months,” I whisper, “I’ve known her for two months and she’s already in the hospital because of me.” I sit down in the plastic chair beside me and put my head in my hands, sobbing my heart out. I probably shouldn’t have say any of that to any of them - especially not louis - but done is done and there’s nothing I can do to change it. 

“But it’s not your fault.” Louis sits in front of me and removes my hands from my face, keeping them in his own. I know he is trying to comfort me, and I know that he knows that it’s not working. I can see the tears and the hurt in his blue eyes. 

“It is though. I picked up the call, I dragged her into all this again. If I had stayed out of her business all this could have been avoided, everything would have been fine. Okay, maybe not fine but at least better, right?” I look at him with hopeful eyes. However, before Louis can say anything a doctor appears from the door that was shut in my face earlier. Louis jumps to hit feet and the other boys follow him close behind. I, however, remain sitting on the chair as I know I’ll fall again if I try to stand up on my own. 

“What’s wrong, doc?” Louis asks the doctor. She simply glances at him before returning her attention to her clipboard. 

“I can only talk about miss Gomez’s condition with family present.” I quickly get up on my feet and practically run up to the others.

Bad idea. 

My legs are not strong enough to support my weight yet so I end up on the floor once again. This time, however, I hit my head rather hard. My vision blurs and black dots form before my eyes, but I blink a couple of times and as I’m being hoisted from the floor by Louis and Liam the black spots slowly disappear. However, I still feel nauseous so if I am to hit my head again I will surely barf.  

“Are you okay, miss Gomez?” The doctor asks looking at me worried. I just smile at her, my head hurting too much to move. 

“Just dandy! Can I get some information about my sister now?” I ask politely and smile another fake smile to her. I’m sure it looks more like a grimace than an actual smile. The doctor doesn’t answer me or start talking, she just stares at me like she’s seeing me for the first time. My smile drops faster than it appeared and I look at her with an annoyed look on my face. She seems to snap out of her trance and cleans her throat. 

“I’m sorry, but your sister is in a coma. We’re not sure when or if she’s going to wake up, but as for now she’s stable. You may see her,” the doctor says and walks away. As her words slowly sink in my world slowly stops and I swear my heart stopped beating for a second. My twin sister, basically gone… 

Tears start running down my cheeks again and my headache worsens to the point where everything around me turns to black. 

* * *

I wake up in a white room. My vision is blurry and I can still feel my brain throbbing against my skull. I blink away the fuzzy feeling and as my vision clears I press the red button beside my bed to hopefully get some things cleared out. I sit up against the headboard. 

“Hello, Miss Gomez, so nice to see you’re awake. My name is Rebecca, How are you?” The nurse said as she walks into the room. She gives me a sickening sweet smile. Then I burst into tears- just like that. I press my legs up against my chest and rock back and forth, while sobbing into my knees. 

“Selena, sweetie, what’s wrong?” Rebecca - the nurse - asks concerned and places a comforting hand on my clothed knee. 

“N-nothing,” I stutter through my tears. I try to wipe my tears away, but I declare defeat as the tears simply continue to fall. 

“You can tell me, love,” the nurse says while rubbing my back in what’s supposed to be a soothing way. However, it does nothing to calm me down. I take a deep breath before answering. 

“My twin sister’s name’s Rebecca.” The nurse gives me a look filled to the brim with sympathy. 

“What has happened to your sister?” The nurse asks in a calm voice like she already knows the answer, which she probably does. 

“She’s in a coma,” I whisper miserably and hide my face in my knees once again. The nurse pulls me into her arms sending a wave of surprise through me. Then I thought, that’s probably something she does only because she knows who I am. Rebecca the nurse doesn’t seem that much older than me. 

“Shh, shh, she’s going to wake up eventually.” She tries to comfort me, but I can only think of one person that can give me any comfort right now, and that person is lying unconscious in a hospital bed somewhere. Her words fall to deaf ears as I know it’s not true. I sniff and pull away from her. I smile a fake smile to her just as the door bursts open and a person comes tumbling in. 

“Selena…” The person trails off when they see me. My eyes fill up with tears all over again and I swing my legs over the edge of the bed. I try to stand up, but I fail and fall into Justin’s arms. I start sobbing into his chest all over again. I don’t even know what I’m doing anymore; it’s just every minute of the last few days has just been blurry. The nurse closes the door after her as she leaves us alone. 

“I missed you,” I whisper when I finally calm down once again. 

“I missed you, too, Selena,” he smiles and caresses my cheek before guiding my face closer to his. His lips finally touches mine and I feel the usual calm feeling spread all over my body like a blanket. It’s a nice feeling and it’s exactly what I need right now when Rebecca isn’t here to calm me down. 

Our embrace is interrupted by someone clearing their throat rather exaggerated. I slowly pull away from Justin to look at the person with that silly little smile. 

“’You guys having fun?” Louis asks bitterly with a fake smile. I can see the annoyance and jealousy in his dull, blue eyes. He honestly looks terrible. An awkward silence quickly engulfs us and I clear my throat. I send an apologetic look to Justin and pull Louis out of the room and into an empty room opposite of my own. 

“Okay, what happened?” I ask after I close the door behind us. Louis looks puzzled for a moment before something clicks for him. 

“You fainted,” he answers with a shrug like it’s no big deal, which I suppose it really isn’t. 

"How long was I out for?"

"Oh, only about 24 hours," he says.

“Anything new about Rebecca?” I ask and sit on the empty bed in the small hospital room. His facial expression drops immediately and he shakes his head. I feel the lump in my throat grow and I swallow. I sigh and stands up from the bed again and pace back and forth while running a hand through my incredibly greasy hair. Ew, I cringe. 

“This is too much,” I exclaim after a moment of silence still pacing back and forth like it could make a difference. 

“What is?” Louis asks and run a hand through his own, clean hair. 

“All this!” I shout and come to an abrupt stop, facing Louis sitting on the bed looking at me with a concerned look. It’s like he’s expecting me to break down at any moment, which I in any other circumstance would have found incredibly insulting. “All this with Rebecca and Aiden and Vanessa and-“ I take a deep breath “-and the beating,” I whisper, tears welling up in my eyes as countless flashback emit my vision from the time Rebecca and I was held up in the same room. 

“Who’s Aiden?” Louis asks and get up from the bed, too, to stand in front of me. I look at him with widen eyes and I let my words sink in. I shouldn’t have said that. 

“It’s… He’s… nobody. Yeah, nobody,” I whisper and run hand down my face. 

“Who’s Aiden, Selena?” Louis asks sternly and places his hands on my shoulders. I remove his hands and take a step back until my back hits the wall and I slide down to the floor. 

“It doesn’t matter, Louis,” I say and pull my knees to my chest. I rest my chin on my knees and stare at the floor in front of me. My vision is interrupted by Louis sitting down on the floor opposite me. 

"But it does Selena - I have been so worried sick- we all have- the whole world has. No one has any idea of what have happened to you two in that abandoned house in the past two weeks. It does matter who this Aiden guy is! Who knows what he did to you- he could have hit you, rap-" Louis is yelling at me, but I stop him before he can say the word. 

"It's not my thing to say, okay!" I shout back at him my voice cracking in the end. Louis keeps quiet and looks at me as if he’s expecting me to continue. I sigh, "It's Rebecca's. I only know a little more than you do because I was there. It was none of my business anyway, but I just had to be so damn curious, didn't I?" I add sarcastically. I bite my lips to sop it was quivering and to prevent myself from crying all over again. I just don’t have the energy for it anymore. I shut my eyes tightly and bury my face in my arms. I feel Louis put his arms around me. He hushes me and tells me everything is going to be okay but I'm just not so sure anymore.
