One Direction, Fanfic: Around in circles
Bianca’s breathing got deeper and I just watched her for a little while. When I thought about Nate my fists automatically clenched and I felt a wave of fury wash over me. I can’t believe he forced himself on Bianca. He was the reason she was crying. If it wasn’t for him Bianca would have been safe in bed, not driving to mine the same time that asshole drunk driver was. I tried to control my breathing and looked at Bianca again. She was okay I repeated to myself.
I slowly removed my arm from around her and eased out of bed. I kissed her on the cheek and left the room quietly. I looked around to make sure Nate wasn’t still hanging around and I saw Niall and Harry walking down the hall.
When they saw me they came rushing over.
Harry threw his arms around me in a tight hug before stepping back and asking me “Are you okay mate?” Before I could answer Harry shook his head and muttered “Stupid question of course you’re not, I’m sorry” He said apologizing.
I chuckled at Harry while both he and Niall stared at me like I was crazy.
“Bianca remembers everything now, she just fell asleep though” I said with a big smile on my face.
Niall looked relieved then let out a tiny whoop while Harry laughed and said “Thank god!”
I smiled widely at them and felt myself start to relax, but it didn’t last long because Harry asked “How did she remember again?”
I tensed again and clenched my jaw tightly.
“Nate came over and something just triggered all her memories.” I said tightly. It pissed me off that Nate was the one to trigger all of her memories.
“There’s more to it right?” Niall said slowly sensing my fury.
“The night of the accident he forced himself on her. He held her so tight it left bruises on her skin. If that dick hadn’t gone over to her house she wouldn’t have been in the accident! She left to get away from him because she was so upset” I said harshly.
Nialls eyes widened while Harry narrowed his eyes.
“That fucking bastard” Niall muttered when he got over the surprise.
“Did you hit him? Please tell me you did?” Harry asked.
I regretfully shook my head. “Bianca wanted me to stay and I couldn’t say no to her” I said sighing.
“Well I’m going to hit the bastard then” Harry said firmly.
Before I could respond we heard a scream come from Bianca’s room.
I jerked as if someone had shocked me. I pushed Bianca’s door open and ran inside looking around widely to see what was wrong. Harry and Niall followed closely behind.
Bianca sat up in bed, tears streaming down her face. I rushed to her side and cupped her face. Her breathing was erratic and her eyes wide with fear.
“Bee its okay everything’s okay” I cooed.
She gasped and flung her arms around my neck and held me in a tight choke hold. I wrapped my arms around her tightly and kept whispering in her ear “its okay, you’re okay.”
She sobbed into my neck and I felt my heart thud painfully. I wanted to take away the pain but I didn’t know how. She couldn’t even talk.
I rocked her slowly and said “Bee, match you’re breathing with mine.”
I took extra long and slow breaths and Bianca started copying it and soon enough she had calmed down.
“Sorry” Bianca muttered embarrassed.
“Don’t apologize, you have nothing to apologize for” I murmured.
Bianca looked down and wouldn’t meet my eyes so I tilted her chin up so she would have to look at me. I stared into her dark chocolate brown eyes, noticing her usual specks of hazel looked dull.
“I mean it Bee” I said softly.
“Thanks” She whispered, her breath washing over my face.
I leant in and pecked her lips softly. Just as I pulled away we heard a throat clear ad I looked up to see Niall and Harry standing there.
I had completely forgotten they were there for a second.
Bianca looked up at them and a smile overtook her tear stained face.
“Niall! Harry!” She said, holding her hands up demandingly.
They came over and gave her a hug and stepped back.
“What’s wrong Bee?” Niall asked
I watched Bianca’s reaction and saw the colour drain from her face.
“No-nothing.” She stammered.
We all stared at her and she looked at us all nervously.
“What?” She asked defensively
“Do you honestly think we are going to believe that bull crap?” Harry said
She bit her lip and said “It was just a dream don’t worry.”
“Bianca” I said sighing.
“Leave it guys” she said stubbornly
I groaned, she had to be the most stubborn person ever at the worst possible time!
“Fine” I snapped.
I saw a look of hurt flash in Bee’s eyes. She looked down at her hands wringing them nervously.
“I’m sorry Bee” I said sincerely.
She peaked at me from the corner of her eye and softly said “It’s okay.”
We were suddenly interrupted by a knock on the door.
A nurse popped her head in and said “I’m sorry but visiting hours are over.”
I sighed and hugged Bianca close to me. “See you tomorrow, I love you” I said quietly and bent down and kissed her on the forehead.
I started to straighten up again when Bianca wrapped an arm around my neck and pulled me down again and kissed me full on the lips.
“Now you can go” she said cheekily. “Love you too”
I felt the corner of my lips tugging up and went to lean down to kiss her again before Harry pushed me and said “Move!” jokingly
I glared at him while Bianca giggled. Harry gave her a hug and whispered something to her that made her laugh out loud.
Niall hugged her too and kissed the top of her head.
The nurse was waiting patiently at the door and ushered us out when we were done saying good bye.
I waved at her one last time and tried to relax my tense body. I didn’t like leaving her in the hospital but they wouldn’t let me stay with her.
I couldn’t wait till tomorrow. I desperately wanted to keep talking to her about what got her so worked up. I would get it out of her I thought determinedly.
When Zayn, Niall and Harry left I collapsed onto my pillows and tried to think about anything else other than the dream I had earlier.
My phone buzzed on my table next to my bed and I eagerly picked it up hoping for a distraction.
Well it definitely proved to be a good distraction. Nate was calling.
I hesitated, staring at the screen before telling myself to man up.
I picked it up and didn’t say anything at first, just listened.
“Bianca?” I heard Nate ask.
My throat involuntarily closed up and I couldn’t find it in me to say anything back.
“Bianca I hope you’re listening because I’m so sorry. Please please don’t leave me” He cried.
I felt my skin crawl when I heard Nate cry. I wanted to comfort him but after everything he had done? Zayn would be so upset I thought. But then again it’s not Zayns decision.
“Bianca I’m sorry I came to your house when I was drunk and high. I was upset about my dad and I didn’t know where else to go and I don’t know what came over me but I promise not to do it again.” Nate pleaded.
I listened to him silently but when I heard him cry again something inside me cracked.
“Nate, its okay” I said hoarsely.
I heard Nate suck in a deep breath. “What?” He asked.
“It’s okay” I repeated. “You were upset, you did something stupid. Just don’t let it happen again” I said chuckling weakly.
Nate let out a sigh. “Thanks Bambs. I promise it won’t happen again”
“Good” I said softly. “Is everything okay with your dad?” I asked
“It’s alright” he said gruffly “But more importantly, are you okay?”
“I’m fine Nate, honestly!” I said.
“Can I come visit tomorrow?” He asked hesitantly
“Um I’m being discharged tomorrow so you can come home, but maybe when Zayn isn’t there. He’ll still be angry” I said.
“With good reason” Nate said dejectedly.
“He’ll come around, he doesn’t know what you’re going through at home” I replied
“And he’s not going to find out right?” Nate said sternly
“I know I know I won’t tell him” I said sighing.
“Good” replied Nate sounding relieved.
I yawned and Nate chuckled. “I better let you get some sleep, don’t need anyone hating me more” he said.
I laughed quietly and said “No one hates you Nate”
“Okay they strongly dislike you” I muttered.
Nate laughed and said “It fine Bambs, goodnight, sweet dreams!”
“Night Nate!” I sang. I disconnected the call and put my phone back on the table.
I looked the time, it was 10pm. I wasn’t sleepy and figured I could just walk around the hospital, try and tire myself out.
So I swung my legs over the bed and jumped out. I let out a little hiss as I felt some pain in my ribs and mentally scolded myself for jumping. I opened the door and poked my head outside.
No one was around so I stepped out, my feet touching the chilly floor.
I started walking down the hall and was about to turn around the corner when I bumped into someone. I felt myself fall backwards and shut my eyes tightly waiting for the impact that never came because whoever they were wrapped their arms around me and pulled me flush against them.
My eyes snapped open and met a pair of dazzling green eyes.
“Bianca?” He whispered in shock.
My mouth dropped open in surprise.
“Lee?” I whispered.
