Summer '09

18 year old May Jones was on ordinary girl with loving parents, a brother, a dog and a boyfriend, Niall Horan. When Niall suddenly leaves to the X Factor without telling May, everything spirals out of control. Niall has a new life and so does May but her heart is still broken. Her family are torn apart and she is left alone. 3 years later they cross paths and everything changes again.


12. A Sledge Hammer and a Bucket of Poison

May's POV

"We're home!" shouted Louis bursting open the door and running in, collapsing onto the sofa. Josh slipped his hand into mine and gave me a smile while rolling his eyes at the boys which made me giggle slightly.

"So what are we going to do?" I asked. "Erm..." Louis looked at Harry who looked at Niall who looked at Zayn who looked at Liam who just rolled his eyes. "Movie or a game?" he suggested. "MOVIE!" "GAME!" "MOVIE-ACTUALLY GA- NO DON'T REALLY CARE!"

"SHUT UP!" shouted Niall causing all of us to stare at him with wide eyes. "Sorry, I just couldn't deal with all the shouting," he shrugged. "Anyway back to the important stuff, I think we should watch a movie. I don't think it's a good idea to be playing strip poker or something," said Liam raising his eyebrows at Harry and Louis.

"Bu--" "NO, we are watching a movie," interrupted Josh. I smiled and plopped down on the sofa, taking up the only place which Louis body wasn't covering. "Lou, get up now. That sofa is for 4 not for 1 and a half," said Josh.

"Hey, I'm not half a human being," I pouted. "I know," he chuckled," but the way you are sitting on it, is basically half of you." "Ugh, fine," Louis groaned and rolled onto the floor. "AAARGH!" "What is it Lou?" asked Zayn who didn't sound like he actually gave a shit.

"That hurt so bad," he moaned and started rolling around. "Shut up and can someone put a movie in?" Zayn muttered checking his phone. "Yeah sure, what movie?" Harry asked. A whole flurry of answers came shooting out: "Toy Story!" "Mean Girls!" "Superman!" "Er, the Princess Diaries?"

"Let the guest decide," chuckled Harry looking at me. I rolled my eyes for about the 500th time that day and said," I don't mind but maybe Mean Girls or Superman. Whoever said Toy Story needs a high five... in the face... with a sledge hammer and a bucket of poison."

Everyone laughed apart from Liam who looked at me with a stunned expression. "Why don't you like Toy Story?" asked Liam appalled. "Because--" "Because she always wanted her toys to become alive but they never did and from then on, she hated them," said Niall giving me a soft smile.

Everyone stared at him and his smile retreated as he realised what he had just said. "I think," he added. Liam shook his head and Harry and Louis raised their eyebrows at him. Meanwhile I was completely speechless. How had he remembered that after 3 years?

"Is there something you need to tell us guys," said Zayn looking at Niall and I suspiciously. We both shook our heads but Zayn kept on inspecting us. "Do you guys... know each other?" asked Josh. I shook my head while Niall didn't do anything.

I glared at him but he ignored my gaze. He breathed out," I think it would be good for you guys to know--" "To know that, yeah, we kinda know each other but not very well. I think we went to school together?" I said, raising my eyebrow and trying not to panic.

Niall's POV

"Yeah, just school," I muttered although the words stung my mouth. It was so hard not to admit it and not to tell them that I loved her, that we loved each other and I was still in love with her. At least I thought I was. Every time Josh did something 'boyfriendy' my fists would clench and I would become angry, wanting to go back 3 years and change everything.

"Then how come you know why she hates Toy Story?" asked Zayn while everyone kept quiet. "Because--" "Because one time in class, round the end of term, we erm, were allowed to choose a film to watch and it was either Toy Story or Kung Fu Panda and I shouted out no to Toy Story--"

"And I was sitting next to her and asked her why she didn't want to watch it so badly and she told me," I finished off. She nodded while everyone just inspected us intently. "Then why didn't you tell us you knew each other?" asked Josh suddenly.

May turned to him and gave him a small smile. "Because I didn't think it was that important. I mean, I hardly knew Niall and seeing as I didn't even know he was in this band until yesterday, I didn't really come across my mind," she said taking his hand and rubbing it slightly.

Josh relaxed under her touch while I stiffened at her every word. "I hardly knew Niall." That was like I was standing on nails, it was so painful. Josh nodded and the boys just shrugged returning their attention to the movie decisions while Zayn just kept looking at both of us.

I knew he knew that there was more to this but he didn't know what and I was forever grateful. Hopefully no one would find out.

"We are going to watch Mean Girls guys," chirped Harry and put the DVD in. "I will go get some blankets," I muttered. "I'll join you," said Zayn following me. We went to the cupboard and picked a few blankets out, Zayn inspecting me.

"I know you guys know each other better, you know," Zayn said while pulling out a zebra-striped blanket. "How do you know," I said casually. "Because the way you guys interrupted each other and your eyes were lighted with fear," he said as if it was one of the world's most normal things.

"That is not true," I said, trying to sound more convincing but it didn't really work as Zayn chuckled. "I won't ask you but we will end up finding it out whether you tell us or not. Just don't leave it too late because one of you or more could get hurt," and with that he walked away.

Curse Zayn with his deep thoughts and the way he is always right.

I followed him back to the main room where they had already started the movie. Louis and Harry were laid across the floor, splayed out like starfish; Liam was sitting with Zayn on the other sofa and Josh and May were cuddled up on the sofa.

I tried to avoid looking at May and Josh but it was almost impossible. I so badly wanted to be in Josh's position but I knew that never in a million years would that ever be me. Looking at them I made myself a promise that somehow I would become friends with May.

I would talk to her properly and try and become friends it was the last thing I did but it was going to be harder because the secret I kept from her was so big, she would hate me forever. Whatever happened, I promised that I would become friends with her because maybe then I could get over my feelings for her.


Sooo, Zayn is suspicious and they very nearly let the truth out. There will be more to this erm, don't really know what to call it but 'sleepover'? I have so many ideas but I have no idea how I am going to fit them all in... :o
