Julianna stood there, shocked. She hadn't expected that question, and she didn't really have an answer to his question. "What?" She crinkled her eyebrows, and he frowned. "Why do you hate me?" He asked, and she winced slightly. "I-Um, well, it's just.." She stuttered, and he stepped into her room, closing the door behind him.
"Seriously, what have I done?" He asked, and she scowled. "Well you didn't seriously think I'd like you, did you? I was forced to move in with you, forced to move to London, and you expected me to be on board with it? You sure were, and that doesn't exactly put you in my good books" She growled.
"You don't even know me! And you just hate me? So what I agreed? I was your biggest fan! I've been watching you since you were ten, I've been listening to you since you were sixteen! Of course I'd jump at the chance to meet you" Niall shouted, and Julianna swallowed. "Was?" She said quietly.
"Yeah, was. I was your biggest fan. Until you came here and as it turned out, they weren't lying! I don't understand how you've hung on to your fans. You're really just acting like a... a... Bitch!" He shouted, and Julianna gasp lightly. Tear pricked her eyes, and she scowled. "If I'm such a bitch, why do you care why I hate you then?" She argued. He shook his head.
She shoved him out of her room, and slammed the door behind him. She huddled herself in the corner, hugging her knees to her chest. It was weird for her, she had been called a bitch before, but when Niall said it... Something was different, it hurt, she felt as if she was letting people down.
Unwanted tears soon found there way down her cheeks. She quickly swiped them away, but it was no use, because more followed quickly after. Soon she was sobbing on the floor of her bedroom, although it was the last thing she wanted to do. She got to a point where she was gasping for breath, and she forced herself to calm down.
She looked at her reflection in the mirror, and frowned. Her pale cheeks were teared stained, and her eyes were bloodshot. She let out a shaky breath, scowling at her reflection.
What was it about this boy that had her reacting like this? She'd never let anyone hurt her after her sister left. Soon there was a knock at her door. "Go away" Her voice was raspy, and hoarse due to the crying. She continued to stare at her reflection as the door open.
"I said go away" She seethed, and Liam came up behind her. "Julianna?" He said quietly, and she scowled. "What?" She snapped, and he frowned. "He didn't mean it" He replied, looking at her. "Like hell he didn't mean it" She muttered, and he shook his head. "He feels bad" Liam added, and Julianna just scowled once more.
"I do too, that doesn't change anything" She said, making her voice almost inaudible. "He didn't want me to tell you, but he's crying" Liam whispered, and Julianna didn't respond, she just swallowed. She turned to look at Liam. "Why?" She asked, quietly.
"He feels bad, he adores you. And he hurt you. No offence but we could hear you crying downstairs, Niall's really loud too" Liam shoved his hands in his pockets. Julianna sighed, and sniffed, wiping her cheeks again. "Where's his room?" She asked, and Liam told her where it was.
She walked out of her room, and down the hall. She stood outside his door, she could hear him crying, Liam was right, he was loud. She knocked lightly, hoping he would hear her, and thankfully, he did.
"Go away" He repeated Julianna's previous words, causing her to give a small smile. She took the Liam approach, and just entered his room without permission. He was in the same position she had been in.
She walked over quietly, and sat beside him. He looked up at her, and she smiled slightly. "Sorry" They said in unison. "Why're you sorry?" Niall asked, wiping his red eyes. "I was acting like a bitch" She muttered, hating having to admit it. "No, what I said was uncalled for" He said, and she shook her head.
"It was completely called for" She whispered, and he frowned, wrapping an arm around her. "Does this mean you don't hate me anymore?" He asked, and she shook her head on his shoulder. "No, of course not. I can't hate you, you cried over me, that's too cute" She smiled, and he grinned.
"Does this mean you'll sign my Forget About It poster?" He asked, and she giggled. "You still have a poster from that? Jeez," She laughed before continuing, "Of course I will". He put his head on top of hers, and she moved her legs so they were across his lap. "What about the other boys?" Niall asked quietly.
"What about them?" Julianna asked. "Do you like them?" He asked, and she shook her head. "Not particularly, no" She responded simply. "Why not?" He asked, and she frowned. "Niall, you saw what it took to get me to like you" She rolled her eyes. "You want them to call you a bitch?" He asked, confused.
"No," She laughed, before continuing, "I'm just not a people person, isn't obvious?", Niall nodded slowly. "Yeah, it kind of is" He chewed on his lip. "At least now living here is going to suck a little less" She said, and Niall pouted. "Only a little?" Niall asked, and she laughed, before yawning softly.
"Maybe a bit more than a little" She said, standing up, and walking towards the door.
She stopped before leaving, and turned to look at him once more. She half smiled, and he returned it. "Goodnight Niall" She said, and walked out, closing the door behind her.
She walked back to her own room, got changed, and laid down on her bed.
But as tired as she was, she couldn't get to sleep.
