You quickly removed the pack of ice off of your injured knee and made your way back to the arena trying not to limp. The night before tour began you had tripped on the stairs and twisted your knee. To say the least it hurt like a bitch. You didn’t want to tell Josh because you didn’t want to ruin the tour. Now 4 days later it still hurt and you’ve been icing it in secret.

If Josh found out he would just want to take care of you the whole time, but you liked being independent. If Tyler found out, being the brother he is, he would probably cancel tour until you felt better.

Although you were in a lot of pain you didn’t want to get in anyone’s way.

Walking into the venue you put on a smile and went up to Josh trying your best not to scream from the shooting pain in your knee.

“There you are. Where did you go?” Josh asked pulling you into a hug.

“Oh you know, just around.” you said not looking into his eyes. You couldn’t lie to Josh and after 4 years of dating he always knew when you were.

“Are you okay? You’ve been acting really strange since tour started.” he asked concerned.

“Yeah just teird I think.” he gave you a strange look as if he was trying to figure out the actual problem.

“Hey guys Jenna and I are going to explore the city for a few hours, wanna come.” Tyler asked as he interrupted Josh’s stare at you.

“Sure, man. I don’t wanna be telling my future grandkids about all the dressing rooms I got to see in the world.” Josh joked.

“Actually you go. I’m gonna go lay down I think.” you said.

“Y/N are you okay?” Tyler asked.

“Yup, just wanna sleep that’s all.” you snapped back. You didn’t mean to, but you were in a lot of pain and standing wasn’t helping.

“Okay calm down.” Tyler said putting his hands up in defense. “Are you sure you’re just tired? You’re not acting like the Y/N I know. You seem off.” Tyler asked trying to get the answer out of you.

“I’m fine.” with that you started to walk off attempting to hid your limp.

You didn’t make it far before you heard Josh and Tyler coming up behind you.

“Babe why are you limping?” Josh asked.

You just shrugged.

“She knows why. She just won’t say. Y/N you better tell us now before I get mad. Are you hurt?” Tyer said aggressively. He hated seeing you in pain. Ever since you were little he always knew what was wrong before you even did.

“Did you hurt your knee or something.” Josh asked.

You couldn’t hold it back anymore so you stopped walking and just let out a few tears.

“Yeah and it hurts like fucking hell.” you said as both of the boys held you up.

They brought you to the bus where you told them how it happened and Josh looked at it.

“Y/N it’s really swollen. I think we should bring you to the doctors.”

“Why didn’t you tell us before. We could of taken care of you.” Tyler said getting ice out of the freezer for you.

“I don’t want to ruin the tour.”

“You wouldn’t of been ruining it, you come before anything or anyone else in my book.” Josh said helping you out to the car to bring you to urgent care.

Tyler followed with the ice. “Y/N, don’t tell the others but you’re my favorite sibling.” he joked. “You wouldn’t of ruined anything. I’m seriously concerned about the swelling though.”

Once arriving at the place was really crowded.

“Guys the wait is over 3 hours. You won’t make it back in time for your show. I’ll just stay here alone.”you said.

“Um. That’s not happening. We’re staying right here with you.” Josh said.

“We’ll just cancel the show. It’s not a big deal. People will understand.” Tyler said.

“No. Please, don’t cancel it. Can you have Jenna stay with me? I want you guys to go and play for the fans. Some of them need you a lot more than I do.” you practically begged. They gave each other a look and Tyler stood to go call Jenna.

50 minutes later

“Oh my god Y/N are you okay?” Jenna asked walking into the waiting room.

“Yeah, I mean no, but yeah.” you replied. “Guys you need to go if you want to make it back in time for the show.” you said to Tyler and Josh.

“Okay keep us updated please.” Tyler said getting up.

“Seriously I want to know when you finally get seen and what they say.” Josh said standing up still holding your hand.

“I will, plus Jenna will make sure I’m okay. Now go love you.”

“I love you too.” Josh kissed you and they both walked off.

In the meantime you and Jenna talked about everything. You guys were like best friends and sisters.

When you finally got called back to be seen you texted Josh really quick.

To Josh

Hey babe. I just got called back. I doubt you’ll see this because you have a show in like 3 minutes. Anyways, good luck I love you.

“So Ms. Y/L/N, we took an x-ray and we don’t see any breaks or fractures. The swelling is concerning so I say you did a good sprain on that knee. I want you to take it easy for the next week. Keep it elevated constantly, ice 20 minutes on 20 minutes off, and rest. I’ll prescribe some painkillers for the pain that will also help with the swelling.” the doctor said after examining you.

After checking out of urgent care you text Josh because there was still about 20 minutes of the show left.

To Josh

Just finished I’ll tell you more when I get back. I’m fine though, should be better in about a week.

Sent 10:35pm

From Josh

Okay love. See you then.

Received 10:37pm

After picking up the prescription and getting back to the arena you were never so happy to be in the small bunks.

Jenna set you up with some ice, elevating your leg, and some medicine before she left.

You nodded off to sleep and were woke by Josh getting into the bunk.

“Sorry babe, did I wake you?”

“Yeah but it’s fine. How was the show?”

“Great as usual. Jenna told me what the doctor said, so I want to to sleep. I love you.”

“Okay. I love you too.”

You thought the next week of being on the couch was going to be dreadful, but it wasn’t. Everyone hung out with you until they had to play a show and the Jenna would stay with you and watch movies with you. You couldn’t ask for a better brother, friend, and boyfriend. They were all so kind and wanted the best for you.
