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*

“Wait, so tell me again why we can’t go out until later…?” Zayn asked me.

“My mom is bringing one of her friend’s daughter here because apparently something happened back home and can’t be there. My mom didn’t tell me much of anything else.” I said. Zayn nodded slowly.

“So, when can we go out?”

“When the girl gets here.”

“When will that be?”

“I don’t know…my mom went to go pick her up from the airport.”

“What’s her name again?”

“Bethany, I think…” I said slowly.

“You don’t even know who she is?”

“My mom said I did…she said we spent the first like five years of our life together, than her mom got married to Bethany’s dad and they moved to America. We haven’t seen them since but apparently our mothers keep in touch.” I said, shrugging it off. “She was like a short, chubby little girl that pretty much was a boy…it was quite the childhood.”


“I guess they’re back. Do you want to come downstairs and meet this girl with me?”

“Yeah, I guess.” Zayn said, shrugging.



They had a comfortable home. It looked a lot neater than my own house, but from what Maura told me, it’s only her and Niall right now. Well, now me, but I was a semi neat freak so it wouldn’t be much messier than it is now. I was looking around as Maura was taking some of the bags from me and putting them down on the ground since I hadn’t yet.

“I think Niall has a friend over, but I’m not too sure. If he does, you’ll have to new friends before the end of the night!” Maura said happily.

“Yeah…” I said quietly. I did another full circle and when I landed on the inside of the house again, I saw two boys standing at the bottom of the stairs.



My mouth almost dropped open. Bethany was so different looking. Her hair was black and purple, she was probably the same height as me, maybe a couple inches taller, girly looking, and…she was skinny, almost to the point where she looked like she didn’t ever eat.

“Niall, do you remember Bethany?” I shook my head slightly and smiled.

“It’s been awhile, but I vaguely remember. Nice to see you again.”

“Yeah.” She said quietly and looked down.

“This is my friend Zayn.” I said, pointing to him. She glanced up before looking back down.

“Okay.” She whispered.

“Niall and Zayn; why don’t you take her stuff up to her room for her; help her get settled in and what not?” My mom suggested.

“Sure, we can do that.” I said quickly. Bethany glanced up at me and I caught her eyes. They almost looked… scared to death, or really sad. I wanted to give her a hug and crack a joke, but I knew this wasn’t the time just by how she was looking at me. “This way.” I said, motioning her with a wave of my hand to follow Zayn and me.
