Through The Dark(Niall Horan)
It has been a month since I gave birth to Emery Leigh Horan. She is the most perfect thing in my life. I have never been so in love. I have also never been so sleep deprived. Turns out Emery doesn't like to sleep very often, unlike her mummy and daddy. Niall and I were pretty good at switching off in the night. Niall was way better at this no sleep thing than I was, which was understandable considering his career.
I woke up to the baby screaming, for the third time tonight. I rolled over to see if Niall would take my turn, but he was already gone. I got up and zombie walked to the nursery, not even noticing she had stopped crying. Niall was sat in the rocking chair, rocking her back and forth. “Shh, princess. It's okay. Daddy's here.” He placed a kiss on her head.
I leaned against the door frame, silently watching them. I noticed the sun had started to rise, meaning it was probably around six am. She was on a routine, that was for sure. Just not one I was fond of. I yawned and ran my hand through my wavy blonde locks. It really needed to be brushed.
“Morning, mummy.” Niall smiled over at me, snapping me out of my thoughts.
“Morning.” I mumbled walking over to them. “Did you sleep in here?” I asked.
Niall nodded. “I fell asleep in the chair after I put her to bed around three..” I still giggled at how he pronounced three.
“I'll take her from here, if you want to try and get some sleep.” I took the baby from his arms, kissing her head.
Niall got up from the chair, rubbing the back of his head while he yawned. “Can't,” He sighed. “I have to meet up with the lads and Simon in a bit.”
I frowned, I could tell he was exhausted. “Is someone coming to get you? You're exhausted you probably shouldn't be driving.”
Niall shook his head and planted a kiss on my lips. “I'll be fine, love.” He kissed my head. “I'm going to go take a shower and then head out. Call me if you need anything, okay?”
“I will. Be safe, please.” I watched him walk out of the nursery and towards our room. I had a really bad feeling about him driving, but I let it go. It was probably just me being over tired myself.
I sat down in the rocking chair and kissed Emery's head. She looked just like Niall. She got his dark hair, and his nose. She was everything I could ask for and more. Just holding her, I was happier, even though she was sleeping and I was not.
I rocked her for a bit longer before laying her back down in her crib. I made my way downstairs to make myself something to eat. Niall grabbed a bottle of water and a breakfast bar before leaning in and kissing my cheek. “I'm out!” he smiled before running out the door.
“I love you!” I called after him. I heard a faint “love you too” before the door shut. I shook my head waiting for my food to be done. I decided to send Alis a text, maybe she could come over and watch Em while I slept for a bit.
Thankfully, she had agreed. I was currently curled up in bed while Alis watched Emery. Alis was good with her, really good with her, so was Harry. Niall and I had decided that they would be her God parents.
I was almost asleep when Alis came running into the room, holding the baby. “Teagan! Teagan get up right now!”
I groaned. “What?! Why are you yelling at me?!”
“It's Niall,” She took a breath. “Harry just called me and said he got into an accident...it's bad Teag..”
I shot up from the bed, slipping on my shoes and grabbing my keys, purse and phone. “You follow me with the baby.” And with that, I was out of the house and into my car on my way to the hospital.
I knew I shouldn't of let him drive. I fucking knew it. I should've called him a taxi or something. We had both barely slept in weeks. I just hoped he was alright, I needed him to be alright.
I pulled up to the hospital and parked, barely turning the car off before I was running through the double doors and up to the desk. “I'm looking for Niall Horan.” I told the lady.
She pulled her glasses down on her nose and looked at me. “Relationship?”
“I'm his girlfriend.” I said, trying to keep calm.
“Family only.” Was all she said before looking away.
“His family is in Ireland. I'm the mother of his child, please I need to see him. I'm all he has here.” I begged the lady.
“I'm sorry, that's the rule.” She walked away.
You have got to be fucking kidding me. I turned around, trying to find a way to see him. I slipped one of my rings off of my right hand and put it on my left and then went back to the desk, someone else was there. Thank God.
“Hi, um, I'm looking for my fiancee. He was just in a car accident.” I tried to keep my voice steady.
“Name?” The woman didn't even look up from her computer.
“Niall Horan.” I said, looking around to make sure the other lady didn't come back.
“He's in surgery right now, have a seat and someone will let you know when he's out.” Once again, she didn't even look up at me.
“S...surgery?” I mumbled. “Is he alright? He's going to be alright, right?”
The woman finally looked up at me. “I'm sorry ma'am, we don't know anything. You'll have to wait until the doctor comes out.”
Hello! I know I've been updating a lot quicker the past few days, but I probably won't be able to update again until Sunday night, if not Monday. I have work the rest of the week/weekend and my best friends birthday is also this weekend.
I'm going to try and update before then, but no promises! Sorry about the cliffhanger, it was actually a spur of the moment decision since I needed some more things for this chapter...
Keep voting/subscribing/commenting! It really means a lot to me.
I love you all!
