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*


24. Chapter 23



I was in the basement with everyone, playing FIFA with everyone when Bethany came in. I almost wanted to question her when she came in wearing a huge smile on her face.

“Where have you been?!” Niall practically yelled at her, beating me to the questioning.

“I was out with friends.” Bethany said bluntly as she sat down by Zayn.

“You have friends?” I questioned, making Louis laugh. She shot me a glare but all I could do was smirk and shrug.

“Yes, as a matter of fact, I do; one of which happens to be your ex girlfriend.” She snapped. I froze.

“Mabel?” She nodded and smiled.

“I like her.” Bethany went back to being her smiley self, but I was still frozen. She met Mabel…she could’ve told her anything about me and my family…I didn’t need that.

For the rest of the night, until everyone left and went to bed, I was thinking about Mabel and what she could’ve possibly said to Bethany. When I was sure everyone was asleep, I snuck out to see Mabel.

I drove to her house quickly, wanting to get this over with. I hadn’t talked to Mabel since I fell apart and I didn’t need her telling Bethany I wasn’t always like this.

I parked a block from her house and walked the rest of the way, like I used to. I hoped the fence in her backyard and climbed the tree that led to a window in her room. I knocked the special knock that I had just for her when we were dating and I would sneak in. Seconds later, the light came on and Mabel pulled back the curtain. She looked shocked when she saw me but propped the window open anyway so I could climb in.

“Long time, no see, Harry.” Mabel said quietly.


“What are you doing here?”

“What did you say to Bethany?” Mabel shook her head.

“I said nothing. I told you I wasn’t going to tell anyone.”

“Okay…” I must’ve looked nervous because Mabel began rubbing her hand up and down my arm like she used to when I was upset.

“Harry, if you like her you realize you’re going to have to tell her what happened, right?”

“I don’t like her.”

“Deny it all you want Harry…I can tell in your eyes that you do, or you wouldn’t be here right now.”

“Is that why you’re still awake?” Mabel; nodded and shrugged.

“I know you better than you think, Harry.” I looked down and ran my fingers through my hair.

“Okay, well…thanks for not saying anything.” I said, walking back to the window.

“Harry, be careful, and get better…for Bethany.” That was the last thing I heard before I dropped to the ground. I ran back to my car, trying to hold back tears. I didn’t like Bethany and I most certainly wasn’t going to cry over her…again.
