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*


39. Chapter 38

Gabriel started driving down a highway and I was getting anxious. I wanted to know where he was taking us. I was getting a little jumpy and practically leaning on the door.

“What are you doing?” Gabriel laughed out.

“I’m getting anxious! I want to know where we’re going!”

“We’re going to where I used to hang out as a kid before I moved here.” I nodded and went back to looking out the window, still jumpy. “You’re still jumpy.”

“Because I don’t know what kind of place it is! I need to know every detail or I get anxious and jumpy; it isn’t my fault!”

“It’s kind of adorable, actually.” Gabriel said, smiling at me. I smiled back at him and went back to being anxious and jumpy, making him laugh. “Calm down, Bethany.” I smiled and turned back to the window trying to calm down.

Gabriel turned on the music after a few minutes so I was able to distract myself with singing. It helped with my nerves and calmed my anxiety. I was feeling better until he turned the music down and drove us onto a dirt road.

“Where are we going?!” I asked as my nerves and anxiety shot back up.

“I told you already!”

“No you didn’t! I need detail and I have yet to get it! I was fine until you turned the music down!”

“Sorry I don’t want to blow everyone’s eardrums out.” I giggled and looked at him as he pulled over and parked the car. “Ready to calm your nerves?” I nodded and smiled. We both hopped out of the car and Gabriel came around, leading me into the woods.

“Is there where you rape and kill me?” I asked.

“How’d you guess?” Gabriel said, sarcasm coating his voice.

“I’m just such a good guesser.”

“Oh fuck, you are.” I laughed as he pushed a branch out of our way. “Here we are.” I smiled and looked around. It was a railroad track with the woods on one side and a lake on the other side. I smiled and stepped onto the tracks.

“Are these still in use?”

“Yeah…not as much as they used to be though. I hung out here a lot. I lived right over there so this was practically my backyard.” I smiled and continued to look around.

“It’s peaceful back here.”

“Yeah…which is what I needed. My house was the farthest thing from peaceful.”

“How so?”

“Well I have about seven siblings, my dad was abusive, and my mom was always screaming and yelling.”

“Jesus…” I whispered. “Do you still live with your dad?”


“What happened to him?”

“Callum killed him at the age of seven.”

“Holy fuck…”

“Yeah, he’s in jail for another year.”

“How old is he now…?”


“He’s getting off easy…”

“Our dad was going after him with a knife…he isn’t getting off easy.”

“I gotchu now.” Gabriel nodded and looked around.

“This was my escape; where I could go and everything would be okay.”

“It’s peaceful out here…I like it. I had a few places like this back in America around my house. I hung around them a lot.”

“I can understand that…” Gabriel nodded and looked around. We walked over to a patch of grass by the lake and laid down. We were staring up at the clouds, talking about our lives and how oddly similar they were, and everything we want to do. Out of all the people I knew here, Gabriel was the most I could relate to next to Harry, and probably one of the most down to earth. It was very calming being around him- no drama, no shit…just real life; and I needed that.
