BETHANY’S ONE SHOT/AUDIO READ
"Louis she’s a kitten, not that hard to take care of for a week" Harry laughed as he stood in the kitchen of Louis’ flat, his arm around you, holding you close. "we’ll be back before you know it to get her Lou" you smiled at him. Louis sighed and laughed, "okay kids, you go on, i can handle a five pound kitten. have a fun time. i’ll miss you….in bed Harry" Louis winked, causing you all to laugh. "thanks again Lou" Harry said as you two walked back out to the car. you set off down Louis’ driveway, and down the street heading out to the airport.
you and your boyfriend Harry had been dating for a year now. He’d just gotten home from a month long tour, and surprised you when he got home, saying that you two would be going on a week long vacation to Spain. you were so excited to spend a week alone with Harry, because alone time with him was hard to come by.
you guys just left London, and were driving out towards the airport an hour outside of town. you turned up the radio as some fast paced, pop song came on and you two rolled down the windows, and sang loudly to the music. your hair was blowing in the wind, and your feet were up on the dashboard, and you felt yourself just relax. Harry looked over at you and you saw he had a huge smile on his face, his ray ban sunglasses were eyes over his but you could tell he was looking right at you like he did when he had something he wanted to tell you. he turned down the music, and reached for your hand, intertwining your fingers with his. “I love you so much” he smiled, his thumb drawing little circles on the outside of your hand. you laughed and said “i love you more harry” and then looked out the window, feeling the wind on your face. “that’s doubtful” he laughed, looking at you. you laughed and rolled your eyes. “harold edward styles, i don’t think you realize how much you mean to me” and he laughed, looking down and biting his lip. “i think i do actually..you mean the same and then some to me”. you were laughing because you guys sounded silly arguing who loved the other more.
you looked out the windshield, and everything happened in a split second before you could even process what happened. you heard the screeching of brakes, crashing, ear splitting sound of metal hitting metal, and breaking glass. a moment of silence passed, then you finally felt something warm trickling down your forehead, and reached your fingers up to see what it was, and recognized you had a deep gash on your forehead that was severely bleeding. you looked around and saw that there was another car, that had hit you head on. the man was getting out of his car, looking severely injured and calling to you, but you couldn’t hear him because you turned to harry, and saw that he took had a deep cut on his forehead, and a large blood stain was forming on his shirt just below his ribs. and he wasn’t moving much. “HARRY!” you screamed, and tried to get out of the car. you did, and ran as fast as you could to the other side of the car, despite a shearing pain in your leg, which you had a huge cut in as well. you opened the car door, and your hands flew to harry’s face.
"baby, please, Harry please answer me. DAMMIT HARRY answer me" you screamed, tears starting to stream down your face. the man from the other car limped to you, covered in blood and said "the ambulance is coming" and sat down, shaking. you nodded your head, but barely knew what he said. Harry’s eyes slightly fluttered opened. "hi" he said weakly. "baby, stay with me. talk to me, please harry" you cried, running your fingers through his hair. he nodded weakly and whispered "i love you beth" and you screamed at him to stay with you. you saw him faintly breathing and heard the wailing sirens in the background.
the EMT’s, police and the firemen arrived. you were standing next to harry’s barely breathing body in the car and a fireman came up to you, and carried you away. “mam we need to check you out and get him to the hospital” you were screaming harry’s name as he pulled you away, and you watched them carefully maneuver his body out of the car. they quickly got him in an ambulance and sped off to the hospital. “TAKE ME WITH THEM” you screamed at the firemen, who was cleaning the wound on your forehead. they had wrapped your leg and head, and then put you in the cop car, and followed the ambulance.
you got to the hospital finally, where the boys were already waiting in the waiting room, their heads in their hands, crying and shaking. When they saw you they stood up and ran to pull you into a hug. Louis got to you first and hugged you, as you were shaking with tears. “what’s going on?” you asked quietly. you saw Zayn shrug, and say, “we don’t know” as he walked over to kiss your head, and liam came over and was rubbing your back. “just stay calm” they said. you sat down, trembling and terrified. finally a doctor came out to talk to you. “Are you all here for Mr. Styles?” he asked. you nodded, and stood up. the doctor sighed and said “i’m sorry to tell you, but we couldn’t stop the internal bleeding in time. he’s suffered from brain contusions and a punctured lung. he’s gone.”
you felt yourself collapse on the floor. "he’s gone" the doctor’s words rang in your head. “no.” you said quietly. “no no no” you repeated. no tears were coming. Louis crouched down next to you and pulled you up into a hug. you started shaking violently and crying. Louis was whispering “shhhh, it’s okay” in your ear and you started sobbing. he’s gone. you stated punching Louis’ chest, screaming out. he pulled your head to his chest and let you hit him. your boyfriend, the love of your life, Harry Edwards Styles was gone.
the doctor came out once more with something in his hand. “the EMT found this in his pocket” he said quietly handing the little box he was holding to Zayn. he nodded, and you saw Zayn start crying. “what is that?” you asked running over to him. “Nothing Beth” he said, moving it behind his back. “ZAYN WHAT IS IT?” you screamed at him, and he sighed handing you the little box. a diamond ring. an engagement ring. Harry was going to ask you to marry him. you dropped the box and fell back to the floor, shaking with sobs. you were going to be Mrs. Harry Styles. but he was gone. you couldn’t move. Liam ran to pick you up off the floor, trying to conceal your screams. “let’s get her home” Louis whispered. you felt sick. Harry was gone.
