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*


20. Chapter 19



The next week or so went by pretty quickly. I didn’t see much of Harry or Niall because we were both busy with our own projects.

It was probably good Harry and I were separated for a good portion of the week because I couldn’t be around him. If I was around him, I knew I would end up growing attached to him. He was the type of guy that was able to draw a girl in without realizing it, and then fucking her over.

Niall on the other hand, he would treat any girl like a princess. You could just tell by his personality. He was the sweetest guy I knew. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him hurt a fly. He was nice to everyone he met and he always knew how to put a smile on someone’s face.

The night Maura and I finished with the house, we were making dinner. We were just making soup because we didn’t want anything to complex. Those were Maura’s words. I thought soup was pretty complex but I guess for her, it isn’t.

When we finally finished it, and I finished setting the table, Maura sent me out to call for the boys. I walked outside and saw them both working in jeans, work boots, and shirtless. They were both sweat and dirt covered, which was actually really attractive.

“Dinner!” I called, trying to make it seem like I hadn’t been watching them for the past minute. They both dropped their stuff and followed me inside. They walked into the garage and washed themselves off with my help before coming inside.

“What’s for dinner?” Niall asked.

“I made soup.” Niall smiled and sat down, already filling his bowl. When we finished eating, Niall and I decided we were going to go to the park down the road to look at the stars since Harry was going out to a party. He had invited us but Niall and I weren’t feeling up to it.

We helped Maura clean up before we went upstairs to change. I changed into a sweater and short shorts, and a beanie. I met Niall downstairs. He was in jeans, a blue flannel, and a beanie.

“Hey, we match!” I said happily, making Niall laugh.

“Yeah, we do; twinning!” Niall said in a girl voice, making me laugh.

“You guys sure you don’t want to come?” Harry asked, walking in to the room. Niall and I turned around as Harry looked up. He froze when he saw me and looked me up and down. I started to blush, unsure of what he was thinking. “You look nice.” Harry nodded towards me.

“As do you.” I whispered. He smile at me and I felt Niall inch closer to me. “But yeah, we’re sure.” Harry shrugged.

“Whatever; hope you guys have fun tonight.” Harry walked out to the car waiting for him outside. I heard Niall sigh and I looked at him as we started our walk to the park.

“What is it?”

“I’m worried about him…” Niall whispered.

“Why’s that?”

“He’s always getting into trouble. I promise you we’ll have to get him out of jail by the end of the night.”

“He’s going to learn one day.”

“I don’t think he will; unless he meets someone who can tame him.”

“Do you think anyone will have that power?” I asked.

“She’d have to be a pretty damn special girl if she’s able to control Harry and all his habits.”

“How so?”

“He has a history of being violent, his record, his drinking and sometimes drug problem…Harry doesn’t have the best past either. I’m assuming that’s what led him to all of this but it still isn’t an excuse.”

“But it happened. He didn’t know what to do.”

“Are you taking his side?” Niall asked, surprised.

“You don’t know me too well anymore. You don’t know what I’ve been through.”

“Why don’t you tell me?” Niall asked as we reached the park.

“It isn’t important.”

“See, that’s exactly how Harry is too. He brings it up, and then drops it.”

“its how he is; it’s how I am. You can’t judge us for something like that.” Niall sighed again and shrugged.

“I guess I’m still not used to the whole idea of my best friend being jail-bait.”

“Yet, you still love him.”

“I couldn’t stop even if I wanted to.” I smiled as Niall and I lay down in the middle of the field and looked up at the clear sky. We were next to each other, keeping each other warm as we pointed out constellations. This was honestly the most relaxing, peaceful night I’ve had since I had arrived here; and it was much needed.
