Sunday morning Alana walked out of her Catholic church, Waters Edge.
"Are going to tell him?" Lindsey whispered to her.
"I will. Soon." Alana looked over her shoulder at her mom and Josie, Mrs. Coleman was wearing a slightly loose white ガウン and her hair was pinned back. Lindsey's Nokia went off, "My mom, I have to go." Lindsey smiled at Alana, "If anything happens call me." Alana nodded and walked over to her mom who was talking to the preacher, Mr. Barintine. Mr. Barintine smiled at Alana and then walked off.
The whole car ride ホーム was an awkward silence. Once they got ホーム Alana walked onto the porch and looked over at Harry's house. It was quite and very still.
"Go talk to the boy." Jaclyn 発言しました walking up behind her, "You have been ignoring him since last weekend."
Alana smiled at her sister, "You're right." Jaclyn smiled and skipped inside. "Here goes nothing." Alana walked slowly to Harry's house. As she knock on the door once. Then twice. A few lingering 秒 passed and the someone answered the door. It wasn't Harry. It was the guy that had on strips, but now he had on batmen PJs.
"Alana!" He exclaimed.
Louis opened the door wider, "Come in." Alana walked in and saw Harry on the couch. It looked like he hadn't slept in days, he also looked skinnier.
"Hey, Harry." Alana said. Harry pipped up hearing Alana's voice. A tear came to her eyes, but she held it back, "Can I talk to you?"
Zayn, who sat on the opposite side of the couch, and Niall, who sat on the spinning computer chair, glanced at each other.
Harry nodded and they walked into Harry's room. Alana sat on the ベッド and looked at her hands.
"Why have あなた been ignoring me?" Harry asked sitting beside her.
"I'm sorry about ignoring you. I'm just really confused, and I didn't know what to so または how to tell you.."
Harry's face went pale, "Tell me what?"
Alana looked at Harry beautiful green eyes. Harry walked into the chemistry lab. "Ah!" The chemistry teacher, Mr. Bean, exclaimed, "Boys, girls meet your new classmate, Harry Styles." Alana sat at her back 机, デスク not paying attention until Mr. 豆 said, "You will be paired up with Alana. Alana, raise your hand." Alana slowly raised her hand. A few 分 later, after Harry sat down によって Alana, they started to do a experiment where あなた mix two different chemicals and see what happens. Alana and Harry where smiling and laughing. One of the mixed chemicals exploded everywhere. Harry grabbed a napkin and looked at Alana's brown eyes, "That didn't go as planned."
"I'm sick." Alana 発言しました looking away from Harry.
"What do あなた mean your sick? People get sick every day."
"No. Like sick sick, they found a... a tumor in my brain." Harry's face went even paler.
"I'm starting Kemo tomorrow."
"It's that bad?" Harry asked unstable. She nodded. Harry hugged her.
"Ally! Get up!" Jaclyn yelled, "It's Monday, and we have school!"
Alana sat up and scratched her head. She looked down at her 枕 and saw some of her hair her hair fell off and was laying on the pillow.
"Ohmygod." Her hands where shacking so bad she could barely pick up the hair, "Mom!" She cried out. Tear after tear streamed down her face.
"Alana, are あなた ready for.." Mrs. Coleman came in and saw the hair Alana was holding.
"Sweety.." Mrs. Coleman went and hugged Alana.
"Why is this happening to me?" Alana whispered, "Why?"
"A record label?!" Harry scram. Liam just got a call from their agency about making a record.
"Yeah! They want us to fly to ロンドン Friday!" Liam 発言しました looking at the other boys.They all started screaming and jumping around like wild monkeys.
"Wait.." Harry 発言しました stopping.
"What?" Zayn asked.
Harry's ハート, 心 dropped. He couldn't just leave Alana, especially when she needs him. But, he can't let the boys down either.
"What is it?" Louis asked.
"Nothing. It's... nothing." Someone knocked on the door, so Harry walked over and opened it. Lindsey stood soaking wet on his porch. Her eyes where red like had been crying for hours.
"Lindsey? What's the matter?" Harry asked. Louis and Niall walked up.
"Alana. We can't find her." Rain started falling.
"Do あなた have any idea where she might be?" Louis asked.
"No, Mrs. Coleman went to bring her some medicine but when she got to Ally's room. It was empty. Some of her clothes and shoes where even missing." Lindsey explained.
"We have to go find her. Who knows what might happen to her in this weather." Niall said.
"You're right. We'll スプリット, 分割 up, and go look around town."
Niall and Lindsey where looking in the woods, both with flashlights. Lindsey was standing close によって Niall, she always hated these woods. When she was eight she saw a lady and a man walking pass her window and into these very woods. Something moved in a ブッシュ near them.
"Ally?" Lindsey asked, hoping that it was her, "Alana? Is it you?" The rattling got louder. Lindsey backed up.
Niall got in front of her, "Alana?" A bunny jumped out the bush.
"God," Lindsey said, her ハート, 心 pumping so fast that she was sure Niall could hear it.
"Let's keep looking." Niall 発言しました walking away. Lindsey sighed and followed him.
Harry and Louis walked up and down the every road, trying to find Alana.
"Where do あなた think she would be?" Louis asked sitting on a bench.
"I don't..." Harry stopped himself, "I actually might have an idea." Harry started running and Louis followed.
"Harry!" Louis yelled. They have been running for several blocks and Harry stopped on the middle of a short bridge, "Where are we going?" Louis asked out of breath.
"Here." Harry looked out at the water, "Under this bridge is a stone pathway. Me and Alana use to come her all the time." Harry walked to the edge of the bridge.
"Let's go find her," Harry 発言しました running off the bridge and walking under it. Louis slowly followed.
Alana sat in the cold stone path, her hair and the rest of her body cold and wet. She needed to get away to think. She heard Harry talking but couldn't see him. She looked up and saw Harry at the 上, ページのトップへ of the bridge. She tried to stand up but she fell back onto the ground. She closed her eyes and waited. And waited. She heard footsteps running off the bridge and onto the stones. "Alana?" Someone 発言しました in a high pitched voice. Foot steps got louder and louder. "Alana.." Harry took off his ジャケット an placed it over her. He picked her up bridal style and carried her home.
"They found Alana," Niall 発言しました looking at his phone.
"Thank god!" Lindsey 発言しました leaning against a tree.
"Wanna start heading back to the house?" Niall walked closer to her. She could smell Nando's cheesy ナチョス on his breath.
"Yeah," Lindsey's ハート, 心 was racing and she could barley breath. The walk ホーム was very quite and awkward. Before they got to the house, Niall grabbed Lindsey's hand. Startled, Lindsey jumped and looked at Niall.
"Harry 発言しました when they found Alana she was cut up. I just wanted tell you." Holding Niall's made Lindsey fell like she could do anything.
Lindsey threw herself at Niall, キス him, "Thank you," She whispered.
"Anytime." He 発言しました キス her back. They stood there just kissing. Niall pulled Lindsey closer to him and Lindsey pulled at his hair. She got lightheaded for a moment and pulled away. She looked at Niall. His hair was messed up and he was smiling at her. She blushed and grabbed his hand. They walked the rest of the way ホーム talking and laughing. They turned down Alana's street, "Wait," Niall stopped, "I want to キッス あなた one もっと見る time." He smiled and kissed her lips lightly. He looked at her and smiled. They let go of each others hands as they walked into Alana's house.
"She locked herself in her room," Harry 発言しました to his phone and running his hands through his hair. Lindsey walked into the living room and sat によって Harry.
"She looked the door?" Lindsey asked and Harry shock his head and continued talking on the phone.
"Niall. Come with me!" Lindsey grabbed Niall's hand and ran to the parents bedroom, "Okay a few years 前 someone got locked in a closet and we had to get the 火災, 火 department to come and get them out. Well, Mr. Coleman thought it would be a good idea to get a key that would open every door in the house." Lindsey explained.
"Alright. Let's find the key!" Niall said. The looked for ten 分 but couldn't find anything.
"Dammit!" Lindsey hit the ウォール and something fell off the roof. Lindsey picked it up, "They hide the key on the roof?!" She moaned and ran to Alana's room. She unlocked the door and swung it open. Alana sat on her ベッド staring out the window.
"Lou, what happened to me?" She asked still looking out the window, "I use to be so full of life. And now," She looked at Lindsey who was sitting down on the bed, "I'm useless." Alana broke down in tear. Lindsey hugged her, "You are not useless. あなた are Alana Grace Coleman, the strongest and most beautiful person I know."
Thursday night Alana glanced at herself in the mirror. All of her hair was gone but she still looked hot in her velvet red dress and コンバース -yeahs, she hates wearing high heels. Her and Harry where going on their first date, before he has to leave to go record an album with the boys. Her door ベル rung and she walked down the stairs. When she opened the door she covered her mouth shocked at what she saw. Harry stood in a tux, and... his curls where gone. A tear slipped down Alana's face as she hugged Harry.
"Alright before あなた go I want to..." Mrs. Coleman stopped when she saw Harry. She smiled, "I want to take some pictures." Her eyes where glued on his bald head. They took a few pictures, 発言しました goodbye and walked outside. When the got to the car Alana grabbed Harry's hand, "I 愛 あなた Styles,"
Harry kissed Alana and then squeezed her hand, "I 愛 あなた more."
