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.


36. Eavesdropping

May's POV

For the past few days, I had spent at Niall's. Don't ask why or how, I just had. Personally, I had no idea why I had stayed at Niall's either but I just felt safer there and more secure.

I had told the girls and they understood but no one would really understand what I was going through.

Throughout the 3 days I had spent at Niall's flat, I had only talked to the girls once and then a few times to Niall. Josh so far was non-existent and since I hardly talked that much, I hadn't asked Niall if he knew anything.

All I knew was that my heart was aching. Was I such a bad girlfriend? Two boys had left me, each breaking my heart as they did so. One more so but both painful.

A tear slipped down my cheek, none following afterwards. Over the few days, I had cried and cried so I was surprised I wasn't dying of dehydration or something.

Niall had always been there. Making me food, helping me up and supporting me. I hated to admit it but he still remembered how to treat me, how to be when I was in an emotional state.

I felt guilty and bad for Niall. He had hardly left the house because of me, only to do some shopping or something. He had put recording's on hold and I didn't know whether the boys knew about me but they were bound to be suspicious.

Whimpering slightly, I crawled out of bed and walked out of my room, not bothering to check whether I looked half-decent. Throughout the 3 days, Niall had seen me in much worse conditions so I couldn't care less.

As I got to the door leading into the sitting room, I heard talking from inside.

"Where is she?" asked a deep, mellow voice which I could instantly recognise as Zayn's. 

"In her room or something," muttered Niall. 

I know I shouldn't have been eavesdropping but I couldn't help it.

There was silence and for a moment I thought that I had made some noise and they knew I was there but then Niall spoke up again.

"How's Josh?" Niall asked.

I leaned in further into the door and waited for Zayn to answer.

"He's doing... ok. To be honest, I don't really know. He doesn't really talk to us about it, in fact he isn't really talking at the moment. All I do know is that he is upset about this," Zayn answered.

"He better not hurt May," muttered Niall which made me smile and blush all at the same time.

Zayn chuckled, much like me and I could almost hear him smile through the door.

"You really love her, don't you," Zayn said. I went rigid and my breath hitched as I carried on listening. "I do Zayn but she hates me and I have been trying to find out a way to be friends or something but it's not working. I don't think it will ever work Zayn and it's breaking me."

Niall sounded so weak, I felt like crying for him but he was talking about me. He thought I hated him and I should've hated him but I couldn't find it in my heart to.

He had helped me when I was in desperate need of it. Even though any of the girls, my brother, my dad etc. could've helped me, none of them knew how to really treat me when I was in this state. It was only Niall who knew and I couldn't thank him eno--

My phone rang and I cursed as it sang out obnoxiously loudly.

Shit, shit, shit.

The phone dropped out of my hand and I knew that Zayn and Niall could hear it, who couldn't. I bet the whole of China could hear it at this rate.

I fumbled around on the floor, trying to grab hold of the slippery iPhone. "Hello?" I snapped.

"May," whispered Josh. My eyes bulged even though he wasn't even near me.

"Oh, um, Josh," I mumbled, not really knowing what to say to him. "Erm, hi, I just rang to erm, ask if we could talk. Not now, I mean sometime later. Face to face," he asked.

My breath hitched and I slowly slid down the wall.

"Oh um, ok," I mumbled.

There was an extremely awkward silence before the door opened to my left and Niall came out, his eyebrows furrowed and his eyes immediately set on me.

'You ok' he mouthed. I nodded and looked down at the floor.

"Well I'll speak to you later then Josh," I sighed. "Yeah, erm, I will probably come round to Niall's or something," he said. "Yeah sure," I muttered," bye."

The phone call ended and I sighed, putting my head in my hands.

"You know, I think we are going to have tell him," Niall said. My head jerked up and I stared at him as if he was crazy.

"You promised that you wouldn't keep secrets yet you are keeping the biggest one away. If you keep it for longer, you're going to hurt him even more," Niall explained.

"Me? I'm going to hurt him more? You are in this as well Niall!" I said angrily. Niall sighed and nodded," I know May but it should be you. Your his girlfriend, that way he will trust you more. If I tell him, think about he will feel. That his friend had to tell him and not his girlfriend."

I knew he was right and I hated that fact.

"Alright but later, not now."
