It's been non-stop work for the boys in One Direction. Constant interviews and paparazzi following them around trying to get their questions answered. Trying to find out the details that have been kept a secret for so long. It was hard for them to put on a smile during this tough time but they couldn't let the fans down. They needed to stay strong for the directioners.
Liam walked over to his laptop and sat down. He slowly typed in the Twitter URL and waited for his homepage to load. Moments after logging in he saw his timeline flooded with worried directioners. They all wanted to know what was going on.
"wish i could tell u guys the details but unfortunatly i cant so sorry.. xx" he typed quietly, then clicked on his mentions.
His eyes scanned across the screen reading as many tweets as possible.
"@ilove1D_12345: @Real_Liam_Payne ??? Hope everything is okay..."
His stomach started to feel queasy. This was tearing him apart.
"@kenzieG1D: @Real_Liam_Payne I'm starting to get really worried..."
"@UPaulNialler: Does anyone know what's going on? @Real_Liam_Payne please tell us there are so many rumours!!"
"@alohastyles: @Real_Liam_Payne I love you guys so much!"
Liam sat there scrolling through his mentions, not knowing what to do.
Ten minutes later his cell phone rang.
"Liam get down here now." the voice on the other end pleaded.
Fifteen minutes later Liam ran through the hospital doors and past the front desk. The receptionist glared at him but didn't stop him as he rushed down the halls and into the elevator. He stood there impatiently waiting for the doors to open and absentmindedly tapped his foot.
Moments later the doors whooshed open and he slammed his fingers down on the Floor 6 button. It felt like an eternity before the doors re-opened and he was running down the halls yet again.
Machines were beeping and there was people hustling and bustling trying to fix everything.
"I'm here. What's wrong?!" Liam asked, holding his chin in his hands.
"The doctors say Niall won't make it past 9:30 PM tonight." Louis whispered.
Liam glanced to his right to see a pale body lying asleep on the cold hospital bed. He walked over and gently sat beside Niall, not knowing what to say. Tears filled his eyes, causing his vision to become blurry.
"I.. I.. this can't be true.." he whispered. "We need to tell them." Liam begged, pointing to the laptop.
"Liam.." Harry started to say but got interrupted.
"It wouldn't be fair if Niall couldn't say goodbye before he.. passed away." Liam leaned down and placed a kiss on Niall's forehead.
"Can we wake him?" Louis asked the nurse as Liam stood up to set up the computer.
"Normally I would say no but under these circumstances, yes." She forced a smile. "I'll leave you four alone with Niall."
Liam set the laptop on a table in front of the bed and signed into twitter. Louis and Zayn woke up Niall as they waited for the twitcam to start.
"please come watch ths... i dont know wat else to say.. but we're sorry.." he tweeted then faced the laptop to show all five boys.
Niall groaned and slowly opened his eyes.
The webcam turned on and they waited as the viewers started pouring in.
Within three minutes there was 60,000 people watching.
"I don't know how to say this nicely... tonight is our last night as a band." Louis explained while trying to hold back his tears.
"Mainly because it will be difficult to stay together..." Zayn started.
"After Niall has passed away.. the doctors are saying he only has three hours left to live.. and we wanted to let him say goodbye." The tears were rolling down Liam's cheeks.
"Hey guys..." Niall croaked. "Just want to thank you for being incredible fans through out our journey as One Direction. It has been amazi-" he paused to take a breath. "It's been amazing, making four best friends, four brothers, made so many friends along the way. so many laughs. so many adventures." Niall stopped to think momentarily.
"You've all been absolutely amazing and I want to thank you for all of these unforgettable memories. You've made me one happy lad.." Liam leaned in and wiped the tears off Niall's cheek.
Harry squeezed Louis' hand, trying to calm him down.
"We'd love to talk longer but we only have so much time together... I hope you understand." Liam bit his lip and closed his eyes.
"We love you guys so much." Zayn smiled through the tears.
"And we are and always will be One Direction.. no matter what happens." The twitcam slowly turned black as all four boys leaned down to hug Niall one last time.
