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.


21. Everything is Perfect

May's POV

My eyes fluttered open at the sound of a door creaking open. I had stayed at the hospital for the night. I don't know why, most people would have gone home but apparently something happened which distressed me so they thought it would be best for me to stay here.

I smiled slightly as Josh poked his head through the door. I was happy to see Josh, especially after Niall. I needed someone to hold me even if he didn't know what was going on. "Hey," he said softly, closing the door and sitting down in the seat next to me.

"Hey Josh," I mumbled, trying to push myself up in the bed. I felt weak and I had no idea why. "How are you feeling?" he asked. I could tell he was anxious and nervous because he had never been in one of these situations before.

"Better," I got out. There was silence for a while until I spoke up. "What was Niall doing here?" I tried to hide the bitterness in my voice which hadn't left from the day before. Josh furrowed his eyebrows for a second, searching my eyes but then resumed his normal expression.

"Well, I was getting erm, tired and restless and some guy named John was--" "John was here?" I asked. "Yeah, he was. I'm guessing you know him," said Josh and I could hear a tad bit of jealousy creeping up in his voice.

I nodded. "I work with him in Starbucks and we are friends. He told me about the club," I said. "Yeah, well John was saying that it was all his fault and I kinda lost control. I swear, I didn't mean to. I was just so frustrated and tired, I sort of shouted at him."

My eyes widened and I prayed that Josh hadn't hurt him. It wasn't even John's fault. "You didn't hurt him, did you?" I asked desperately. Josh shook his head and carried on.

"Yeah, well then afterwards, Niall interrupted us and told me to go home with the rest of the boys because I was tired and agitated. I wanted to stay but I knew he was right. I wasn't doing any good staying here so I agreed after a while and left but Niall offered to stay, just to check up on you and stuff. Keep you company."

'Well, he didn't do a good job' I thought mentally. "Oh, ok," I said. There was another silence but I was too occupied in my thoughts of Niall to really notice it that much. "What did you mean by your dream?" blurted out Josh.

I turned to face him as he pulled me out of my thoughts. "What dream?" "I don't really know but after the nurse gave you some medication, you fell asleep and we were allowed to come in. You started murmuring stuff and then it grew into loud shouts and stuff. You were saying things like 'what did I do wrong?' and 'you just left me'."

My body stiffened immediately as a sudden rushing of blood swirled around my brain. Had I said that out loud?


I was a wreck. I couldn't seem to deal with normal life anymore. I was more like a charity case than someone who had their heart broken. I ran and ran away from home. I couldn't deal with all that stress.

I collapsed somewhere unknown, my tears were blinding me. All I could think of was Niall. My head was pounding and I couldn't get him out of my brain. I rocked back on forth on the ground, the rain pelting down on me.

"Why did you leave Niall?" I whispered. I didn't get it at all. I didn't mean to think that I was perfect, I was far away from that. Anything from it but I thought that he loved me.

"What did I do wrong?" I said louder against the drumming sound of the rain slamming down onto the ground. "I don't... I don't understand," I said loudly, trying to scream it out as if Niall could hear but he was gone and that was what was tearing me up.

"Why did you leave me? What did I do?" I shouted, my voice cracking with tears. "Please just tell me! I loved you and you just left me!" I shouted even louder, wishing that he could hear.

"You left me with nothing!" I shouted again. I had nothing. Even though my parents were trying to give it all back, things were going wrong and nothing seemed right anymore. My family was breaking and so was I.

I lay down on the ground, not even bothering to try and cover myself from the rain. "I thought you loved me," I whispered.


"May! May! Are you alright!" said Josh loudly, slipping his arms around me and bringing me closer to him. Somehow tears were running down my face and I hadn't even realised that they were there, I had been so wrapped up in the flashback of my dream.

But in effect, my dream was the flashback. I nodded slowly and broke out of his arms. "I'm fine," I said but I could tell Josh wasn't buying it. "Honestly. It was just a... sad dream," I said, staring at the opposite wall.

"If you need anyone to talk to, you know that I am here right?" he asked and I nodded, sending him a forced but soft smile. "Now, if you are ready, the doctor said I could take you home," said Josh, brightening up a bit.

I nodded eagerly, I hated hospitals and I couldn't wait to get out. "I am always ready," I said. He chuckled and helped me out of bed. I changed quickly in the bathroom and checked myself in the mirror. I sighed as I saw my beaten-up reflection.

My hair looked as if some rotten crow had decided to lay about a thousand nests up there and my face was tired and pained. My eyes were dark, no doubt from the memories of my dream and the bruise was still clearly visible. No makeup was going to be able to hide it.

I glanced down at my wrist. My cuts were still there but they had faded slightly. If none of this had happened, I would probably have fresh ones. I sighed and walked out the bathroom.

"Here's your phone," said Josh, handing the iPhone to me and my coat. I winced as the sleek black phone touched my fingers. I hadn't touched it or looked at it since Niall had left. I was too scared that I would see more hateful messages even if they were true.

I sighed deeply as I saw how many messages and missed phone calls I had. 6 each from Sophie and Chloe, 8 from Henry, 4 from Max and 10 from my dad. My dad was probably freaking out because I rang him every night and I had missed my lunch with Henry which was definitely going to tell him something was up. 

"You ok?" Josh asked as we left the room. I nodded and smiled at him. "Everything is perfect." But that was possibly the biggest lie I had told in my entire life.
