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*


32. Chapter 31

The next couple weeks dragged on for what seemed like forever. We were getting ready for school now and I honestly wanted for nothing more than to go back home. I wanted to see my mom and I wanted to be by her side. As angry as I was at her for doing this, I wanted to hold her; I wanted her to tell me it was all going to be okay.

“Are you excited for school?!” Maura asked happily, the morning of the first day of school.

“No.” I said bluntly, making her shift uncomfortably. Ever since she told me about my mom, I’ve been bitter towards everyone, including Niall.

“Alright, well…I’m off. Bethany, do you want a lift with me or Harry?”

“Harry; I’m not ready yet.” I spat, throwing my bowl in the sink and slumping my way back upstairs. I had no need to go to school that probably was nothing like America. I wanted to go back home and go to school with people I knew and hated.

Ten minutes later, I made my way back downstairs and Harry was fidgeting with his keys. I grabbed my backpack from the corner and followed Harry to his car. We were both silent the whole way to school, but as soon as we got there, my nerves got the best of me.

There were people everywhere. It made me feel very nervous. I actually felt like I was going to puke. I had never been the new kid in school and I really didn’t want to start now. The only people I knew were the people on my block, Gabriel, Aaron, Cady, Mabel, and Bailee.

“Are you ready?” I jumped at the sound of Harry’s voice and realized he was already out of the car and waiting for me.

“Yeah, sure.” I nodded quickly and hopped out of his car. People were already looking at me and it made me wonder is my sweater and leggings were the right choice for the first day of school. Harry bumped hips with me, causing me to smile a little.

“You need to lighten up; people here aren’t that bad.”

“I don’t believe it.” Harry laughed and shook his head.

“There’s Niall; he’s looking at you. You should probably go over to him.”

“But I don’t know who he’s with…”

“Time to start meeting new people, Bethany.” Harry pushed me over to Niall, causing me to stumble.

“Hey babe.” Niall said as I walked up to him. He kissed my head and his friends were staring me down.

“Is this who you’ve been spending your whole summer with?”

“Yeah; problem?” Niall asked.

“Not at all.” I pushed myself closer to him and he put his arm around me. I felt eyes on me all over, making me more and more uncomfortable. Why did this have to be me…?
