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*


46. Chapter 45

~~After the whole Niall scandal, it was hard to see him at home so I spent a good portion of my time with Gabriel since he knew how hard it was for me, knowing someone I was so close to cheated on me. Granted I cheated on him but that was after I knew about him and Amy. Plus, watching them hold hands and be cute around school really killed me. It didn’t make me feel any better about what happened. What made it worse was that everyone just assumed me and Harry were now a couple and that was the last thing I wanted right now.
For the next couple of days, I didn’t feel like going to school. Maura had heard about what happened and wasn’t really happy with Niall or me at this point. She was made at Niall for cheating and mad at me for handling it the way I did. She couldn’t say much about Harry because she knew how he was and no matter what she said, he would probably laugh.
When the weekend rolled around for the block party, I stayed up in my room, not even bothering to come help with everything. I couldn’t bear seeing Niall and Amy since she was obviously going to come as his date.
“Are you coming?” Maura asked, knocking on my half open door.
“I don’t think so, Maura.”
“You do realize Niall feels really bad, right?”
“I’m sure he does. That’s why he cheated.”
“Just stop Maura; I get it, he’s your son, you want to protect him but let’s be honest…I think it’s time I go home. I think I’ve gone through enough here.”
“I think it’s that time.” I said.
“Well in that case, come to the party and I’ll let you leave on the next flight out of here.” I nodded and rolled out of bed as Maura walked back outside. I slowly got ready so I could spend the least amount of time at this party as possible.

I was sneaking a beer when Maura walked up to me with a serious face on. I was getting worried, thinking I was now in trouble for what happened.
“Okay, since I’m Niall’s mother, I shouldn’t be saying this but…I need to tell you.”
“What…?” I asked slowly.
“I know you like Bethany and I know she has feelings for you. She want’s to go back to America and you need to convince her to stay somehow. I know Niall can’t do it because of what he did but…you need to do it.”
“I can try…” I said slowly.
“Good…I can’t have her leaving yet.”
“Why? I mean…I’m not complaining but still…”
“Just try to get her to stay for a little longer.” I nodded and Maura walked off to go back to her friends. As I turned back to the house to go look for her, she walked outside. I went right up to her and she saw me coming her way. As soon as I reached her, I wrapped one arm around her waist and another hand on her neck and kissed her passionately.
“What the hell was that for?” She asked, sounding slightly angry.
“Niall was watching.” I glanced over at Niall as did Bethany. She nodded and looked back at me, pulling me back down to kiss her again.
“Don’t take this to heart.” She mumbled against my lips. I just moaned on her lips, not sure I could actually form words as we kept kissing. 
“Please don’t leave me, Bethany…” I begged as she pulled away.
“What are you talking about?”
“I can’t lose you. First I lost you to Niall, I don’t want to lose you to someone else…” I said, quickly covering my tracks.
“Harry, it isn’t that simple. Me and you…we’re two people that are exactly the same and it isn’t okay. We both can’t pull this off.”
“I will make it work. Anything you want, need, need me to do…I will do anything Bethany; please…”
“I don’t know Harry…” She looked deep in thought and I was trying to convince her that it was all going to be okay with us and if things went smoothly between her and I, I think she would stay here and not go home to America. I know it sounded bad, asking her out just to keep her here but…she never had to find out.
“I don’t think that’s a good idea Harry. I don’t want you to feel like you had to change for me. That’s not right at all.”
“But I would do that for someone like you; I want to be better for you…” I said, slowly pushing hair away from her face and behind her ear.
“Harry…” Before she could finish what she was about to say, I pressed my lips up against hers and kissed her long and hard, pulling her close to me, and I felt like I was actually about to start crying; that’s how perfect it felt. “Okay…” She whispered as we pulled away. “You have one chance to prove to me that this will work.”
“I won’t let you down.” I whispered, kissing her again.
