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.


7. Don't forget

May’s POV

I wouldn’t come out of my room for days. I was under my covers, staring blankly out of my window, often gliding my fingers over the necklace round my neck. My brother and father would come in, giving me food but if they wanted to talk to me, I would just push them away.

Maura had tried to come to talk to me but at the sound of her name I broke into tears and my brother sent her away.

I had a temperature and the doctor had said that I needed to stay warm but get fresh air but I wouldn’t listen. I didn’t want to move. I didn’t want to leave because everything reminded me of Niall.

I slipped out of bed and stumbled to my bathroom, dizziness surrounding me as I it was the first time I had gotten out in 24 hours. I steadied myself on the handle of my en-suite and breathed out.

My breath was raspy and sore. Speaking wasn’t an option anymore, I just couldn’t. I turned the handle and pushed the door open. My dad had said that it would be good to have a shower and I decided that I would.

I felt so unclean and disgusting. I stripped and stepped into my shower. The hot beads of water trickling down onto me like rain. It was soothing but Niall was still there in my mind, tormenting me.

I stepped out and got into a pair of fresh pyjamas which Henry had laid out for me. I looked out myself in the mirror and felt a tear slip out. Niall had called me beautiful but now looking in the mirror, with my bedraggled, wet hair and worn and tired eyes, I looked more like a zombie than anything beautiful.

I just stared at myself and then my eyes flickered to something lying lazily on the edge of the sink counter. I glanced back at myself again and then reached from the blade. I picked it up softly and turned it around in my fingers.

I pressed it onto the skin of my wrist but didn’t do anything. I paused and looked at myself one last time. I pressed down harder and drew it towards me slightly. I bit my lip hard so as not to let out any noise but I soon felt the cold and bitter taste of metallic blood seeping into my mouth.

That was the first time I had cut myself. 

“MAY! MAY! GET UP YOU LAZY BUM! JOSH HAS TEXTED YOU!” I grumbled and rolled over, trying not to let tears slip out of my eyes. Chloe and Sophie couldn’t find out about this, not yet. “Come on May! He says he wants to meet up,” cooed Sophie, shaking me hard.

I groaned and wiped my eyes. My eyes fluttered open but I moaned and shut them again as the light shining through the blinds, pierced my vision. “Oh, come on May! We need to get you ready!” said Chloe, taking my arm and dragging me out of bed.

I lay on the floor and I heard the other two giggle. Suddenly, I heard a click of a camera and a blinding flash of light. “This is definitely going on twitter,” Sophie said. I got up immediately and grabbed her leg,” don’t. You. Dare.”

“Too late,” she winked. “I hate you guys,” I muttered while Chloe helped me up. “Come on, you know you love us. Now go have a shower, Josh wants you to come to his work place today,” ordered Chloe. I did as I was told and had a quick shower, I waltzed back into my room wearing my pj’s and saw that Chloe and Sophie had already picked what I was going to wear.

“So May. You are going to wear some black skinny jeans with your brown ankle boots, with that white DWEEB cropped top and a pretty gold necklace,” commanded Sophie. “Don’t forget the lingerie,” winked Chloe.

I slapped her on the arm as she waved my pink lacy bra around. “Give it back,” I hissed. “Nope,” she said simply and ran away. I groaned and ran after her. “CHLOE MARTINS! IF YOU DON’T GIVE ME BACK MY BRA NOW I WILL—“

I smashed into something and moaned in pain. “You will do what?” giggled Chloe, flinging the bra so it landed on top of my head. “Hate you,” I mumbled. She giggled and sent me back to my room where the ordered me to get changed.

I glanced at myself in the mirror. I looked nice, better than I had looked for a while. My hair was still wavy but slightly more thanks to Chloe and my makeup was done so it looked nice but casual, with only some eyeliner, some mascara and some greyish eye shadow.

“Perfect,” Chloe squealed,” ooh. Josh has just texted that he is just coming up the stairs and—“ She was interrupted by the doorbell ringing and Chloe and Sophie emerging into fits of squeals and cries. “GUYS! SHUT UP!” I shouted.

The giggled and passed me my bag. “Have fun,” winked Sophie. “But not too much fun,” chuckled Chloe. The doorbell rang again before I had the chance to swat Chloe round the head. I breathed and then opened the door to reveal a very handsome looking Josh.

“Hey May,” he said and bent down to kiss my cheek. “Hey Josh, where we heading?” I asked, closing the door and shoving my house key into my bag. “Um, well I was going to take you to my workplace if you didn’t mind,” he said.

I raised my eyebrow at him. This is where we were going? “I know it doesn’t sound fun but honestly, you will be surprised. I am pretty sure that you will have fun,” he said taking my hand. I nodded but didn’t fully believe him. If his fun was filing papers, I was going to have rethink Josh… a lot.

He opened the car door for me and I giggled. He just grinned and got in the other side. “How far is it?” I asked. “Not far, about 15 minutes,” he said, revving the engine. “Cool,” I said and looked out the window.

The car ride was silent but not awkward. It was comfortable. I was beginning to become suddenly very nervous and was panicking whether the people there would like me, or would I do something stupid to mess Josh’s job or AAAAHHHH! Gosh, I really needed to stop shouting.

15 minutes or so later, Josh parked his car in a rather fancy looking car park and we both climbed out. “Woah, where do you work?” I asked, gazing at the massive building in front of me. It was mainly all glass and was 3 storeys high. “You’ll see,” he said, wrapping his arm around me and leading me to the entrance.
