Erase My Memories

You would think Bethany is a typical American teen girl, until she attempts suicide. She spends a couple months in a psych ward, and when she is let out, her parents send her to live with her mom's best friend in London, who just happens to have a son her age, Niall Horan. The two become very close friends, but when Bethany gets to know Niall's best friend, Harry Styles...Bethany starts to grow attached, much to her horror. And much more, Harry too has quite the past. Can the two over-look the past and present problems, or will life itself destroy their relationship?

*Includes self harm, alcohol, sex, and cursing*


15. Chapter 14



When I got home, I felt pretty satisfied with myself. I beat the crap out of Harry like he used to do to me and I didn’t feel angry for once. Maybe Harry had a good thing going with the gym- it gets anger out.

“There you are sweetie; where were you?” Maura asked me as I walked into the kitchen. She and Niall were putting away groceries so I started to help.

“Harry needed help at the gym and since I had nothing better to do, I went with him.”

“Well that was nice of you.” Maura said happily. “It’s good you’re making an effort with him; especially since he spends a lot of time here.”

“Why does he?” I asked, curious about it.

“He’s a very lost boy…he just needs to find something that he can believe in.”

“You mean like a religion…?” I asked.

“More like he needs someone to set him straight.” Niall said under his breath. I looked at Niall and he avoided my gaze.

“Niall, you know he’s trying.”

“What else can we do? We can’t keep bailing him out of jail...none of us are made of money. Someone needs to set him straight. I love him to death, he’s a great guy…but me needs to get back on track.”

“When did he get ‘off track’?” I asked slowly.

“Years ago darling…years ago.” Maura said sadly. I decided it wasn’t the time to ask any more questions, so I stayed quiet as I helped put groceries away.

“Hello there!” Harry said, as he stumbled into the house.

“Hello love; how was the gym?”

“Pretty good- this girl over here beat the shit out of me though.” Harry said, taking me in a head lock.

“GET OUTTA HERE!” I screamed pushing him off me, and pinning him to the wall.

“Damn girl…you got quite the grip.” Harry joked, smiling at me. I felt myself grow hot and start to blush, so I quickly let him go and turned away.

“Did you now? Why is that?” Maura asked, interested.

“I asked for it- literally. She warned me though…I didn’t listen.” Harry said happily.

“Wow…good for you Bethany.” Maura said, laughing. Niall raised an eyebrow at us before smirking.

“I’m glad you guys are slowly beginning to get along. I wouldn’t be able to handle it if my childhood friend and best friend weren’t getting along since we’re all staying under the same roof.” Niall pointed out, making me roll my eyes.

“Yeah, okay Niall.” I groaned.

“What? Do you still not like me?” Harry asked.

“You’re pushing my limits. I only like you at certain times, and when I’m in a certain mood.”

“Damn…that’s depressing.” Harry joked. I rolled my eyes and turned away.

“I’m going to shower and afterwards I’ll probably start unpacking some more.

“Okay love; just holler if you need one of us.”

“Okay, thanks.” I said, taking the steps two at a time. I smiled to myself as I gathered clean clothes. It was now that I figured staying here wouldn’t be THAT bad…
