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*


38. Chapter 37

“You do realize you aren’t getting off that easy, right?” Maura said to me on our way home. “You can’t beat someone up, get suspended for a week, and expect nothing to happen.”

“You aren’t my mother; I don’t need to listen to you.” I spat. Maura went silent, unsure of what to say and scared to fight me on it.

When we got back to the house, I grabbed my bag and walked upstairs, dropping it on my floor. I fell over on my bed and curled up into the blankets. I wasn’t ashamed of what I had done, but I wondered if Niall would be.



“Where’s Bethany?” I asked, walking into the lunch room.

“She went home.” Harry said.

“Why…?” I asked, confused.

“She beat the living shit out of your ex.” Zayn said.


“Are you stupid, Niall?” Louis spat. “You’ve been all over Amy and Bethany was getting kind of jealous so she beat the shit out of Amy.”

“Amy provoked her, actually.” Zayn pointed out. “She threatened Bethany so…she snapped.”

“Bethany wouldn’t do something like that…”

“Then you clearly don’t know her that well.” Liam said, jumping in. I shot Liam a glare but he wouldn’t look at me. I looked away, shaking my head.



Niall didn’t even know he was dating…and Liam was the one that pointed it out, not me. It pissed me off that he had Bethany but I knew I couldn’t be with her as bad as I wanted to be. I had no choice but to let her love someone else. I couldn’t fuck up her life anymore than it already was. She hadn’t told me much, but I wasn’t going to assume it was all that great from what I’ve picked up. 

“Are you okay?” Louis said, nudging me. I nodded and continued eating. There was no way in hell anyone was going to find out about how I still liked Bethany.



After a couple hour nap, I walked out of the house without telling Maura where I was going. I was walking around, not sure what to do.

“Bethany?” I looked up and saw Gabriel.

“Aren’t you supposed to be in school?” I asked.

“Shouldn’t you be in school?”

“Touché…”  I smiled, making Gabriel smile too.  “So what are you doing not in school?”

“Skipping school for the day; I needed a personal day already. What are you doing outside of school?”

“I got suspended this morning.” Gabriel nodded, not asking any questions, which was something I liked about him.

“Want to go do something?” I smiled and nodded.

“Sure.” He smiled, grabbed my hand, and pulled me into his car.
