The boys of One Direction had decided to come to America and explore New York City, to see what it's like to live in this cultural hub for the summer. Bella and 1D's paths cross unexpectly and she falls for a certain artificially blonde heartthrob but a struggle in the Apollo family tears at their relationship. Something else happens which challenges their relationship and Bella is nothing short form torn.


24. Greg Tells Me to Go

Niall's POV

I sat there talking to Greg in the hospital. I was alone, we were in this room. I mean it wasn't like when we went with Bella. She was in the hospital bed but this was more of a recovery room. Other people sat in the chairs quietly talking so we weren't actually alone. Greg wasn't even that badly screwed up like mom said he was. He had a few scratches on his face, and his jaw was fine. I mean the only thing that looks physically wrong with him was some swelling under his eye. I wasn't even a black eye like mom said. It just looked puffy, like he hadn't slept in a while.

"I can't believe you came all this way just to see me leave the hospital a few hours later." Greg patted my back laughing.

I ran my hands through my hair, I could have been with Bella right now.

"My mom said you were banged out real bad."

"Nothing I couldn't manage, she just said that just so you would come home. After this she was going to convince you to stay for the rest of the summer. I told her you didn't need to cross the pond but she tried to convince me that I was damaged forever or something Ni."

"So mom lied."

"No Niall, I mean this music stuff is really time consuming."

"But I'm going to have to leave the nest sometime. I'm an adult I live in a flat, without her, I am me. I'm nineteen going on twenty in some months."

"I know, that's what I've been trying to tell her but you know you will always be the baby to her. But enough about mom anything cool happen in New York?"

"I left this amazing girl in New York. Dude, her name is-" 

"Bella Apollo, the whole word knows about her dude. A lot of girls on twitter have been looking for her and stuff."

"She doesn't check her twitter often."

"Well I hope she doesn't because I was curious and checked out her timeline and she has so much hate on it." we both laughed,

"I don't care because Bella's special and she isn't the kind of girl to get all emotional over something small like that."

Bella's POV

Elly was basically my pillow for the remainder of the day. Drake went out to get us some ice cream. He offered to take us with him but I was too upset and unsightly to leave and go anywhere. Plus paparazzi have been trying to get my picture for the past couple of weeks. Elly let me rest my head on her lap as she stoked my hair he combing it with her fingers.

"Call him hun, he is freakin' in love with you. See why he left. He said it was urgent."

"I don't want to hear him talk, I don't want to see his face, I don't want anything to do with him."

"You probably weren't saying that during-"

"This is serious Elly." I could feel my throat pinching up at the sides barely letting me say anything audible so when I said Elly's name I  dragged out the y.

Drake knocked on the door, "Let me in I forgot my key and the ice cream is dripping down my hands, hurry it's melting, my hands feel all sticky." he whined. I got up and opened the door.

Some ice of my vanilla ice cream had dripped down to his elbow and he was trying to lick it off.

"Dude it's impossible, the elbow cannot be licked."

Drake stood there in the hallway looking like an idiot, "Says you." He exclaimed before proceeding to attempt to lick the ice cream off of his elbow.

I pulled him inside, and took my ice cream from him. Elly came up to him, "Thank you Drake." she said before snatching her chocolate swirl from his hand. He was left with his super man ice cream.

"Drake," I began, "why do you like super man ice cream. It's only vanilla ice cream with blue, red, and yellow food coloring in it. It's not like it's super man flavored."

He laughed, "I wonder what super man flavor would taste like."

Elly joined in, "Maybe sweat, or something."

We all laughed and continued deciding what super hero ice cream would taste like.

"Spiderman would taste like webs, and spider guts." I thought out loud.

"I would totally buy that!" Drake announced.

Elly stuck her tongue out at him. We laughed, this was what I needed. Not Niall, but friends to share these times in my life with. I felt a sudden urge in my stomach and rushed to my room. I  grabbed my point shoes and strapped them on then rushing to the living room. I cleared away the furniture and begun to dance. I was Peter Pan. I could feel myself going to Neverland, where I never grew old. Where I could be this age forever and fight against pirates, and hang out with mermaids and even go hunting with the Lost Boys. There is not a set and stone way to dance Peter Pan, it is changed to fit the image of the dancer.

When I finished, Drake and Elly hugged me, I could feel Elly's breath in my hair, I was always at least two or three inches shorter than them, "There you go Bella Ballerina." Drake teased.

We ended up staying like that hugging, until my phone rang. My stomach hardened, it was of course no other than Niall.

When I picked up his Irish accent flooded my ears making me want to kiss him. "Bella let me please explain-" I cut him off, "No Niall let me explain." I breathed and opened my mouth to speak. "How could you leave me without saying goodbye after you promised?"

The only thing I could hear was his timid breathing, "Bella." was all he could say.

Drake and Elly watched me, Elly took my free hand and held it, Drake took the phone from me.

"Look Niall Bella doesn't really want to talk to you. You're a cool guy, but she's one of my best friends and she doesn't deserve how you treated her."

Niall's POV

"Drake listen to me, tell Bella that I-"

"No dude, I'm sorry but Bella was really into you man. Like, she fucking loved you and you just...I mean ditched her."


"Please don't call me dude, and if you want to have any respect left from any of us I suggest you hang up."

I heard muffled voices then Bella telling Drake to hand her the phone back. Drake asked her if she was sure and she pleaded. Elly joined saying, "I don't think this is a good idea." I prayed that one of them wouldn't hang up. Soon Bella was on the line again.

"I loved you Niall. Goodbye."

She hung up. I was elated my heard pounding until what she said really hit me. LOVED as in in the past not LOVE as in the present, in the now. Greg looked at me, "Sorry Niall." He must have seen my face.

"I'm going to go get her." I said. We had taken Greg back home to my mother's house, she wanted to take care of him. I wasn't going to be apart of this fantasy that we were still her little babies, these were our lives. I was still pissed she exaggerated his situation and tricking me into thinking Greg was near death.

Greg hugged me, "This girl is a good one. I can tell. I was getting ready to tell you to go get her anyways." Greg whispered.

I charged into the kitchen. The boys had been in there hanging, talking or whatever.

Zayn smiled, "Hey Niall is Greg-"

I cut him off, "Yeah yeah, but I need to get back to Bella. She...she..." I couldn't bring myself to say it.

"Mate but your brother?"

"He told me to leave."

Harry patted my back, "What happened with Bella and you?"

"Something that if I don't get there now I'm going to lose her mate."

Liam rubbed his head nervously. "Our plane tickets back to the US aren't good until tomorrow. The plane leaves at 6 in the evening."

I fell to my knees, I felt tears eat away at my cheeks. I hated them, tears pissed me off. I've seen enough of them, heard enough of them.

Louis went to find his laptop, "Let's try and see if we can change the tickets for today later on tonight."

We looked, no available flights. I cupped my hands over my face. "No, no, no!" I squeaked.

"We will just have to wait until tomorrow bro." Liam sighed.

"Okay." I said but it wasn't.

My mother walked in all smiles.

I was pissed off at her, if she hadn't lied, exaggerated, then Bella would still LOVE me, not past tense, LOVED me. I mean she wanted to see her son but Bella could have been her daughter in law. Yes, I have considered life with Bella as my wife and it wasn't a bad one. I mean my mom didn't know. I let her kiss my forehead. I opened my mouth to explain why I couldn't stay. I knew it would upset her but she would still love me. Bella's love was the one at stake right now. I was sitting there, looking at my mom. As I talked I thought about Bella and how she only loved me.
