Changing the Past

I want to go back and change the past. What I said to Harry Styles in School was all a lie...
My name is Grace Shuatsi and I am 18 years of age. If I told people that I went to School with Harry Styles nobody would believe me. That I was not only friends with him, oh no, I was best friends. The closest friend anyone could have. But something went wrong on the night of the prom... Something which made Harry forget...


16. Changing the Past; Chapter 16; The Truth

We leave the building straight away and we drive off. I'm driving because I think Sarah's too angry to control the car right now, other than her temper.
"That... That slut. Did you hear what she said? She goes out with Niall..."
I can feel a waterfall of tears about to erupt from my eyes. How CAN she be going out with Niall?
"I jut can't believe it... I just can't. FLIPPING. BELIEVE. IT!" She yells, slamming her fists on the arms of the car chair.
"Yes I know, Sarah. Neither can I. He's too nice and fit to be with someone like Cara," I say and she stares at me. "What?"
"Do you... Like Niall?" She asks, as if unaware of my reaction. I shake my head and lie,
"Of course not. Why would I do such a thing? I go out with Harry, for goodness sake." She continues to stare at me weirdly and finally says,
"I can tell you're lying. You're talking too posh-ly." I shake my head in fake disbelief but she raises an eyebrow at me.
"Let's talk about this later, I'm driving," I say, thinking of the best excuse I can think if, "I'm also hungry." Sarah smirks and sits back in her seat. She zips her mouth closed and we are silent for the rest of the journey home.

(The next day)

I wake up the next morning at 7am and take a quick shower. I see Sarah eating her breakfast when I come out and jump.
"Jesus Christ, Sarah. You made me jump," I say and begin to walk towards fridge. She looks at me weirdly and says,
"I didn't do anything. Anyway, your hair is tucked in your jumper again." She walks over and pulls my hair out of my silvery knitted jumper.
"Thanks," I say, opening the fridge door and pulling out a yoghurt, "Listen, I've got the day off today and I was wondering if you have too. I want to go shopping late but you might not be able to come. Can you?" Sarah thinks about it for a while and nods. She says,
"Hey, you know Cara said that she's going out with Niall yesterday?" I nod and gulp. This can't be good.
"Well, she's changed her relationship status on FaceBook from single to in a relationship." I let out a sigh of relief and say,
"That could be anyone in the world, Saz. There's a lot of dumb boys in the world who would do that."
"But... Oh, don't worry. You're right. Niall's way too good for her." But I see her eyes sweep away from mine and stare at the floor, unhappily. I decide to cheer her up by saying,
"Listen, I got paid last week £750. Why don't we go mad." She stares at me and says,
"I really don't feel mental enough to do that right now..." I give her my best puppy eyes (not very cute but hey) and beg her until she finally gives in.

[In London]

"Wow, you're so lucky you work at Waitrose," Sarah says, seeing my 4 bags in my hands, full to the brim and we've only been here 2 hours. AND we've only covered 1/2 of London shopping centres so far. I smile at her and say,
"Haha, it's not really that great. You get a lot of moody customers. But I save up my money so I can spend spend spend when I really want to."
"When you really NEED to, not when you want to," Sarah says as we walk into Hollister. I laugh and we carry on the day until it becomes evening.
"So where do you want to eat?" Sarah asks. I stare through a window of a restaurant and my gaze fixes upon two people. They look like a very happy couple and they're chatting away. But I only notice who it is when the male throws his head back when he laughs and his blonde hair sways with him. How dare Cara tell the truth. She IS with him. And he IS with her. They are together, looking like nothing could pull them apart. I can't help but storm through the door and stand right at their table. When Niall finally recovers from his laughing fit, he notices me there and gulps. But I can't take it. I pounce on Cara and she falls to the floor. But nothing can stop the truth. The truth is fixed and there is nothing I can do about it. Or can I?
