I walked up the stairs leading to the hotel, trailing closely behind Jason. He seemed pretty nonchalant about fhe whole thing. I mean, he’s acting like I never even caught him snogging my best friend, he’s acting like nothing ever happened. I know that was the agreement, but he’s not even acknowledging the fact that there’s obviously tension between us. Can he not feel it? Like seriously, it’s actually giving me major chills. I stood next to Jason at the front desk, and I just admired him while he was getting us checked in. He really was attractive. No guy I have ever seen was quite like him. Although Harry and the rest of his band members were oh so hot, there was still something about Jason that they couldn’t hold a candle to. I don’t know what it was, but it had to do with him being my first love. I had had boyfriends before, but nothing as serious as Jason and I. As I was staring at his almost perfect profile, he turned to me, giving me a half smile, replicating Harry’s signature smirk… great, now Harry’s on my mind. Where is my curly haired best friend? I seriously hope he’s okay… “Earth to Amy! Hello?!” I forgot I was even with Jason for a second, oops. “yeah, sorry, I was kind of in my own world” “no shit. now i remember why you used to piss me off. Come on, let’s get to our room before it happens again.” Wow, that was fast. Already he’s gone from ‘oh Amy, I love you’ to ‘bitch, come here and do what I say’. Why did I think he had changed? stupid stupid stupid… We got to our room, hoping I could lie and just nap for awhile, maybe think about what i’m doing, but I guess that isn’t an option. Before even taking a step into our room, he grabbed my arm and pinned me against the wall. Next thing I knew, he was forcing his lips onto mine. What the fuck was going on?! My so called boyfriend, who ‘changed’ was now trying to get his tongue down my throat. What were you thinking Amy? I tried desperately to get away, only to be pushed back to the wall again, arms pinned above my head. His grip on my wrists was so strong that I couldn’t budge, and my circulation was being cut off. Hands going numb, lungs fighting for air, body being tightly compressed by Jason’s large frame. I entered a state of panic, and I definitely was not prepared for what was next, even though I knew it was coming.
I walked back to the condo, tears strewn across my face. Louis opened the door, and as soon as he saw me, I was smothered with questions like, “what happened?” and “where were you?”. I tried to answer all of them, but there was one question I couldn’t even begin to explain without tearing up. Louis had asked who had picked Amy up. I tried to speak, but nothing could come out. ” No, no, no, forget I asked okay?” I sat there for a few minutes, in silence, trying tocalm myself. It’s better if I tell them my story with Amy now than waiting. I slowly told them the events of the past few months, my voice breaking with each sentence. I included every detail that I could remember. I told them about how I fell for her in a matter of minutes, how Jason always treated her like trash and how she left to be with him. All the boys seemed generally shocked, but Niall was the first to speak, “wow”. For some reason, my emotions took a sharp turn in the opposite direction. “WOW?! THAT’S ALL YOU CAN SAY?! WE’RE PRACTICALLY STRANGERS AND I JUST SHARED WITH YOU MY BIGGEST SECRET, AND MY PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP AND ALL YOU CAN SAY IS WOW?!” By now the tears were cascading down my face. “MY BEST FRIEND, WHO HAPPENS TO BE THE LOVE OF MY LIFE IS STAYING A HOTEL ROOM WITH AN ABUSIVE ASSHOLE, AND I’M SCARED FOR HER LIFE BUT I CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. IF I TRY TO, I WON’T BE ABLE TO HOLD BACK THE FACT THAT I LOVE HER, AND SHE DOES ‘T FEEL THAT WAY ABOUT ME. SHE HAD THE CHOICE, EITHER ME OR JASON AND SHE CHOSE JASON AND I. CAN’T. DO. FUCKING. ANYTHING.” My last five words, louder than the rest, were each puncuated with my fist pounding against the wall. Before I could say another word, Niall apologised.
“Listen Harry, you know I didn’t mean it like that. I’m so sor-“
He was cut off by the sound of my phone ringing. My stomach flipped at the thought of Amy calling me, but all my hopes came crashing down when I saw who it was.
It was Jason.
