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*

Harry:

“I’m so sorry about that dear!” Maura said as I pushed the chair off my legs. I laughed and shook my head.

“Nah, it isn’t the worst thing that’s ever happened to me.”

“Do you want some food?”

“I was thinking more along the lines of a place to stay for awhile…” I whispered.

“Of course; you know I could never turn you down Harry boy.” I smiled and shook my head at the old nickname she gave me. “Do you need to go anywhere to get anything?”

“Nah…I don’t remember where all my stuff is.” I said, shrugging. Maura looked a little surprised but shook it off.

“I’ll take you shopping later this week than…in the meantime, you can take Greg’s room.” I nodded and excused myself to go shower. When I got up the stairs, I knocked on Bethany’s door. After a couple seconds, the doorknob turned and Bethany stood there with tears streaming down her face. Almost immediately, she tried to slam the door in my face but I stopped it with my foot.

“For a second there, I thought you were going to slam the door in my face.” I said sarcastically.

“I was trying to do that.” Bethany said before throwing herself back on her bed. “What do you want Harry?”

“I just wanted to thank you…no one has ever paid my bail if it was over a thousand…”

“Yeah well you can thank me by leaving me alone.”

“And why would I do that?” I asked, making my way closer to her.

“Because you annoy me.”

“That isn’t a good enough reason. Maybe if you told me why you were in jail…”

“Because I killed someone.” I started laughing and looked at her.

“That’s really funny actually.”

“What if I was serious?” She asked without looking at me.

“I wouldn’t believe it because you wouldn’t be that mean.” She stood up and walked up to me, looking straight into my eyes.

“Well I almost did kill someone.” She said with a totally straight face. The way she said it made me believe her. I swallowed heavily and she didn’t even budge.

“Wait…you’re serious?” I asked, my eyes going wide.

“Yeah…I am. Now leave me alone.” I slowly backed out of the bedroom and closed the door behind me. I leaned against the wall next to her room and closed my eyes. What…the actual…fuck.
