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*


25. Chapter 24

When I got back to the house, I was trying hard to refrain from going into Bethany’s room but it didn’t work out. I knocked on her door lightly and a few seconds later, she opened the door in a long sweater, no pants or shorts, and her hair was in a messy bun.

“Harry, shouldn’t you be in bed?” She yawned.

“I needed to see you…”

“You made it pretty clear that you don’t care about me.”

“It’s not true. I do care about you!”

“Stop yelling! You’re going to get us both in trouble.” She hissed.


“Go away.” She closed the door in my face quietly and I felt the tears coming back down my face again. I tried to push them away but couldn’t. I made my way back to my room and crashed on my bed. I pulled my pants off and threw them somewhere in the room before I pulled the blankets up to my chin and dug my face into the pillow, crying myself to sleep.



The next morning, I had texted Mabel seeing if she wanted to hang out. She agreed so I finally left my room to go shower. As soon as I was done showering, I made my way downstairs to everyone eating breakfast.

“Good morning!” Maura called to me, causing Niall and Harry to turn to me.


“You’re all dressed up nicely!” Maura exclaimed.

“I’m going out.”

“Where?” Harry asked protectively.

“I’m going out with Mabel.” Harry tensed up but I didn’t care. He didn’t mean much of anything to me anymore.

“When will you be back?” Niall asked.

“What are you two; my mother?”

“That’s my job.” Maura said.

“No it isn’t. You aren’t my mother; therefore I make my own rules.” I snapped before grabbing an apple from the fridge and going out to meet up with Mabel. I took the bus to her street and when I got there, she was waiting for me, smiling and waving.

“Hey love.” She kissed each of my cheeks and we started the walk back to her house.

“Hey.” I said slowly.

“Is everything alright? You sound a little down.”

“Yeah, a little.”

“What’s going on?”

“Harry…” Mabel sighed and looked down.

“Do you like him?” I shrugged, unsure of how to answer that question because to be honest I had no idea if I liked him like that or not.

“I don’t even know because…he’s Harry; one minute he’ll like me, the next he’s being a sassy cunt to me.”

“That’s a dirty word…”

“Sorry, but it’s the truth.”

“Harry can be like that but he still is Harry.”

“What do you mean by that?” Mabel sighed again and began looking around.

“Before what happened to his family, he was one of the sweetest guys I ever knew. He was always nice, always there for everyone whether they were friends or not…he was every girls dream guy. Now he’s just jail bait and no one really knows what clicked in him after the big thing happened.”

“What is this big thing?”

“It’s not my place to say.” I would’ve pushed Mabel to answer, but by the way she said it I knew it was better not to press the issue and just to ask Harry when the time seemed right. But…when would the time seem right since he always pushed me away? I can’t say I’m much better since I do the same to him but at the same time…I was curious as to what happened to him. He hasn’t showed any interest in getting to know me at all since I’ve gotten here, so it was different…right?
