Please Stay With Me
After we dropped off Harry, the whole ride home was filled with my crying and Liam trying to comfort me as much as he could. When we got home we both went straight to bed, well I tried to sleep. I kept tossing and turning all night. Harry’s words kept repeating in my head over and over again. I should have expected this to be honest. I betrayed him in one of the worst possible ways, I’d hate me too. It hurt even more because Harry loved everyone, I’ve never even heard him say anything bad about anyone. I feel awful to know that all his anger that he has bottled up inside is because of me. I got up and decided to make some tea to calm my nerves, it also helps with the morning sickness. My stomach was sort of uneasy already so I was hoping the tea would help. I stared out the window and watched the rain fall. Its weird that ever since everything happened to between Harry and I, its been raining nonstop. I feel bad that I’m so happy with Liam and Harry is miserable. I wish I could help him in someway, but I don’t want to hurt him anymore.
Liam woke up soon after, he rubbed his eyes tiredly and his face still looked sleepy. He was so adorable in the morning. He came up behind me and wrapped his arms around me, resting them on my stomach.
“How’s mummy and baby this morning?” He kissed my neck which made me giggle softly.
“We are doing just fine, I feel a little nauseous but its not as bad as it usually it.” I smiled and turned around, wrapping my hands around his neck. I kissed lips softly and ran my fingers through his messy hair.
“Are you making mummy sick?” I love when he talks to our baby. It shows me how much love he really has for our baby. “Baby in a few months all this morning sickness will be worth it when we finally met our little one .” He smiled at me and kissed my lips.
“Liam we need to tell our parents, and the boys. What is management going to say? Oh god and the fans also, they are going to hate me and just think I’m some slut who cheated and got pregnant.” I started to cry, I was honestly surprised at my quick change of mood. It was part of being pregnant I guess.
“Baby don’t say that! Nobody will think that. The fans know you’re my best friend.”
“Yeah your best friend who was dating Harry! How’s it going to look when they find out I’m pregnant by you!”
“Who cares what they say Gabriella! If I’m happy then they will be happy for me! They aren't really our fans if they don't respect our decisions or respect which makes us happy. And what makes me happy is you and our baby! Don’t worry about the rest of that stuff, okay?”
“Okay.” I sobbed slightly. He tucked a piece of hair behind my ear and began leaving little kisses all over my face, making me smile.
“There’s that beautiful smile I love.”
“I love you Liam.”
“I love you too.” He pulled me into his chest and I buried my face in his neck. “What do you think about taking a trip? Down to Wolverhampton to tell our parents? I know my parents are going to be excited about being a grandma and granddad, especially my mum. My sisters will be excited to aunts as well. They will be supportive Gabriella, I know they will.”
“It’s not your parents I’m worried about, its mine. I know my dad is going to take this the hardest. This wasn't exactly his plan for me babe.”
“Gabriella, you know I respect your father. I always have and always will, but are you ever going to stop doing what he wants and live your life for you? I know this wasn't his plan for you, it wasn't anyones plan, but we have to deal with what life gives us with positivity. I’m sure he will be mad at first baby but he will come around, I know he will. Especially when he see’s the baby.” Liam's words helped relax me, he was right. I needed to start living for me and this baby and Liam are going to be my future.
“When do you wanna leave?” I smiled at him.
“How about sometime next week? That way we can tell boys first.”
“When did you want to tell the boys?”
“As soon as possible, like tonight maybe. I feel bad hiding all of this from them.” I wanted to tell the boys but I was honestly scared to how they react. I think Liam could sense I was feeling uneasy about this. “Don’t worry Gabby, it wont be as bad as you think.”
“I just don’t want to look like the slut that caused a rift in the band. I don’t want them to think I messed up the band or did this on purpose.”
“Babe they wont think that. The boys love you and they will be happy that I’m happy.” I sighed, well I was going to have to tell them sooner or later.
“Did you want to invite them over for dinner?”
“Yeah that sounds good babe. What did you want me to make?”
“Anything but chicken!” He laughed. “But I can cook, its the least I can do since this is my fault.”
“For the last time its not your fault! I’m the one who didn't use a condom, if they want to get mad at anyone it should be me.”
“I’m sorry i’m just stressing.”
“Relax babe, stressing isn't good for the baby.” He started to rub my shoulders.
“Fine, I’ll try to relax.”
“Good. Plus we have enough to worry about with our little one. Our baby is the most important right now. When is your next doctors appointment? I know I missed the last one.”
“Its in about two weeks. Like the week after we get back from Wolverhampton.”
“I’m so excited. I want to see my baby already.”
“Well I’m almost four months, so soon.”
“Nine months seems so far away.”
“I know but it will go by fast, and soon our baby boy or girl will be here with us.” He smiled and kissed me passionately.
“I’ve always wanted you to be the mother of my children Gabriella. You’re going to be an amazing mother to our baby. I just know it.” I smiled at his kind words. “I love you Gabby.”
“I love you too Liam.”
I decided to cook pasta for the boys. One because I was craving it, and two because its the one thing I can cook successfully with out messing it up. Liam invited all the boys over aside from Harry of course. They would be here shortly and I started to feel nervous again. I didn't want the boys to think badly of me, especially because I hurt Harry so badly. We wanted to tell them all after we ate, we at least wanted one nice dinner before everything turned to shit. We hoped it wouldn't though. I heard a knock on the door but Liam answered it. Let’s hope this dinner runs smoothly.
I opened the door to see Niall. Of course he would be here first, there was food involved. He looked happy like the happiest I’ve seem him in a while. He was grinning at me as well. What was up with him?
“Payno!! I missed ya mate.”
“I missed you too.” He was still grinning at me. What was going on?
“So you and Gabby huh?” Thats what it is. Rebecca must have told him.
“I’ll explain everything after dinner okay?”
“Fine. Can we eat now?”
“No we have to wait for everyone Niall”
It didn't take long for Louis and Zayn to come. Zayn was here last of course, he sucks at being punctual. We all sat down and made small talk. Gabby hardly said anything, I could tell she was nervous. It would probably be best if I did all the talking. I didn’t want her to get upset.
“Where’s Harry?” Louis asked causing me to lose my current thought.
“Oh um he couldn’t make it?” It sounded more like a question than a statement. Fuck, I was already messing this up.
“So was he busy or something?” Louis looked at me confused.
“Um yeah he was busy.” We still continued on with small talk and were just joking around. Zayn finally spoke up.
“What’s the big announcement you had to make Liam?” I looked at Gabby and she lost all the color in her face. I grabbed her hand under the table to comfort her.
“Well actually Gabby and I have some news.” All the boys looked curious, especially Louis. “Gabriella and I are going to have to a baby.” I said quietly, it almost sounded like a whisper to be honest.
“What?” Niall said confused.
“I thought you knew Niall.”
“No, I knew about California. I didn't know she was pregnant.”
“What the fuck happened in California?” Louis said speaking up.
“Gabby and Liam slept together.” Zayn answered before I got the chance.
“You knew Zayn? How?” He looked over at Gabby.
“Gabby told me.”
“You told him?”
“I’m sorry, I didn't know who else to talk to besides Rebecca. Rebecca obviously told Niall.”
“Wait wait wait. So you and Gabby slept together in California and now she’s pregnant?” Louis was clearly confused.
“Yeah she’s preg-” He cut me off before I could finish and slammed his hands down on the table making everyone jump.
“Fuckin hell Liam! Did you even think about how this would affect. the fucking band! How are you and Harry going to even work together now?”
“Louis calm down okay. I know Harry is angry, but I think he will come around eventually.”
“Don’t tell me to calm down Liam! Did you even think? Have you not heard of a fucking condom!” His face was growing red and he was furious, he pointed at Gabby. “You! You couldn't keep you legs closed? You had to go and fuck your boyfriends best friend!” Gabby stated to cry at the table.
“Shut the fuck up Louis! Don’t talk to her like that!”
“Fuck you Liam! It’s not my fault your best friend acted like a slut!” I completely lost it at that point. In one good punch I hit Louis right in the face and blood went everywhere. “Fuck! I think you broke my fucking nose!” I wanted to hit him again but Zayn and Niall were holding me back.
“Louis you’re not helping this situation!” Niall yelled.
“We are supposed to be there for Liam and Gabby! They are our friends too!” Zayn shouted, this conversation was such a big screaming match. Louis was still holding his nose, and blood was still spilling from his nose. Fuck I didn't mean to hit him that hard.
“Louis you need to go to the hospital.” I said making him look at me.
“We’ll drive you.” Gabby spoke up. She had stopped crying and I knew she felt bad for how everything happened.
We got to the hospital and luckily Louis’s nose wasn't broken. It was just badly bruised and fractured slightly. The had to pop it back into place. I feel horrible.We were all waiting for him in the waiting room when the nurse came out and told us he wanted to see me and Gabby. I grabbed her hand and we walked into his room to see him sitting on the table with some bandages on his nose. It didn't look as bad as before, but it was still pretty purple and swollen.
“Louis I’m sorry.” I said as soon as I saw him.
“No, I’m the one who should be saying sorry. You both deserve and apology, especially you Gabby. I shouldn't have called you a slut, because thats far from the truth.”
“I understand, you have a right to be mad. It’s okay.” Gabriella said, despite being insulted horribly by Louis she was still so nice and forgiving.
“No it’s not okay. I was just so mad because I was worried about the band. I let my anger get the best of me and that wasn't cool. I should have been supportive because I know thats what you guys need right now. I’ll talk to Harry okay?”
“Thanks mate.” I honestly felt relief. I hugged him trying not to hurt his nose. He looked at Gabby and they hugged as well. We all three left the room and went back to the waiting room to see Zayn and Niall waiting anxiously. I smiled letting them know everything was fine, and they smiled back.
“So we’re going to be uncles!” Niall shouted excitedly. He put his hand on Gabby’s stomach. “I’m going to teach you to play guitar and football!”
“What if the baby is a girl Niall?” Louis spoke up.
“She can learn as well! I’m so excited!”
“Congratulations you two.” Zayn said smiling. He hugged Gabby and kissed her cheek.
For the first time in a long time. I was finally hopeful everything would be okay.
