Harry wrapped his hand around Niall’s and squeezed it to let him know he was still there. Milan wasn’t crying because she was now scared for Isabela and Niall. She could never stand Niall cry and Niall never really did cry, or at least he never let people know. Harry was on one side of Niall and Liam was on the other. Liam had always been protective of Niall, but lately it has been Harry. Louis squatted in front of Niall trying to calm him. Niall was balancing on his knees with his face in his hands. Louis got up and looking through the window. The heart moniter was running again. Louis motioned for one of the nurses to come here when they had time. One stepped out of the room and started talking to Louis. He nodded his head and scratched his head. Louis walked back over to Niall and Niall’s face in his hands.
“Look at me Niall.” Niall’s head slowly came up. “Her heart is going again. She is still in critical condition.”
“Is she awake?” Niall stuttered. Louis shook his head no. “Can I go in there?”
“Yes.” Everyone helped Niall up. He started to walk into the room when he realized that the others weren’t following him.
“Aren’t you guys coming?” Niall asked. Everyone shook their heads.
“We thought you should go in there alone.” Harry said. Niall looked at Milan who smiled at him. Niall put his hand on the door knob then froze.
“Actually I don’t want to go in there.” Niall said. When he turned around all of them were giving him a glare. “Or I do.” He turned back around and slowly turned the door knob. He walked in and pulled a chair up to the bed. He looked up at the window, but no one was there. He grabbed her hand. “You know, I could have gone with you. That way this would be either just me or both of us. Hopefully just me. I gotta say, the night I met you I feel in love with you right there.” Niall smiled remembering everything about when he first saw her. “You are so beautiful and I couldn’t ask for anyone better. I’m not going to ask for anyone better because you aren’t leaving me and I’m not leaving you.” A tear fell from Niall’s eye. “You better wake up soon though because you are wasting time. We only have a few short months and you being like this isn’t helping. So stop playing around and wake up. Please just wake up.” Niall started crying even harder and put his head down. He stood up letting go of Isabela’s hand. “Damnit! Why was it you! You shouldn’t be in this hospital right now! You don’t deserve it!” He picked up the cup of water beside him and threw it at the window. Everyone was asleep outside the room, but Harry jumped. He looked through the window to see Niall throwing stuff. He ran into the room and grabbed Niall. He wrapped him in a hug and stood there letting Niall cry.
“It’s alright Niall. She is going to be okay.” Harry said, but Niall could hear the uncertainty in his voice. Niall’s head rested on Harry’s shoulder since Harry was taller than him.
“Why her?” Niall cried. “Why her?” Harry had no answers for Niall. He just continued to hug Niall.
“I’m always going to be here for you Nialler.” Harry whispered.
Niall fell asleep against Harry’s shoulder in the hospital room. They woke up the next morning with the others shaking them. “Come on guys, get up.” Milan said. “We are going home. The doctors said they don’t think anything will change so they will call us when something happens” Harry stood up and started to pull Niall up but Niall refused.
“Niall, she said nothing is going to change.” Harry said.
“I don’t care. I am staying with her. I told her forever.” Niall went to sit back down in the chair next to the hospital bed. He grabbed her hand and kissed it. He looked back at the others. “I’m staying. No use in trying to get me to leave.” Everyone nodded and walked out of the room.
“Call me if you need anything. Understand?” Harry said. Niall nodded and turned back to Isabela.
*1 month later*
Niall has barely left Isabela’s side. Harry came in everyday to make sure Niall ate and took a shower. “Are you sure you don’t want to sleep in your bed for once?” Harry asked.
“No. I’m not leaving her. How many times do I have to tell you?” Niall snapped
“And what are you going to do when its time to go back on tour? Niall I love her too, but the doctors said there is no hope. They wanted me to tell you they are pulling the plug tonight.” Niall stood up out of the chair. He was a few inches shorter than Harry.
“There is hope for her! I can feel it! She is going to wake up soon!” Niall yelled “She hears everything I say! She is coming back slowly! You aren’t taking her away from me!” Niall started to cry again. Harry tried to hug him but he just shrugged him off. Niall walked back over to Isabela and grabbed her hand. He rubbed it and continued to play with the ring. “Just please leave.” Niall whispered. He heard the door shut behind him. “Please come back to me.” He said but his voice cut off. He fell asleep on her lap.
Harry came back about two hours later. He saw Niall asleep and smiled. All Harry could feel was guilt. He was taking away Niall’s love, Isabela’s parents haven’t come to see her once. He walked over and picked up Isabela’s hand. “Niall and you deserve eachother.” He whispered. Harry felt a tear fall from his eye. It landed on Isabela’s hand and he wiped it away. Suddenly he felt her squeeze his hand. Harry gasped and yelled at Niall to wake up. Niall jumped.
“What?” he said grumpily
“Shes awake! I have to go get a nurse!” Harry ran out of the room. Niall jumped up and kissed Isabela on the forehead.
“I knew you would come back to me love! Even when no one else did!” Isabela eyes fluttered open and she squinted at the light.
“Niall.” Her voice was horse. Tears welled from Niall’s eyes. He kissed her again and smiled.
“I knew you would come back!” Niall smiled and squeezed her hand. She squeezed back and it was the most relieving thing Niall had felt in a month. “I love you.”
“I love you too.” She said softly
