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.


35. Hot Chocolate

May's POV

I just kept crying. I don't know why but I just kept on crying. Maybe it was the fact that Josh, my first boyfriend from Niall, was extremely mad at me and although I hated to admit it, we could break up.

Another boy was leaving me. Another. And I didn't know how I would take it. I would be upset no doubt but would it leave me like what happened with Niall.

I had stopped cutting. I don't know why but I did. After a while, or rather after a while of Niall, I just... I guess I just grew out of it. I didn't want to admit but maybe it was the fact that Niall was back.

Not that he was my boyfriend, none of the sort but he was just back. Back in my life and back in my head.

Breathing out a shaken breath, I felt Niall's arms give me a tight squeeze. He was muttering sweet nothings into my ears which I could hardly hear yet they were somehow calming me down.

"Ssh, ssh," Niall whispered into my ear. I raised my head slightly and breathed out again. "I'm sorry," I mumbled, motioning to the large wet patch on his chest. He chuckled lightly and shook his head.

"It's nothing May. Honestly," he said. Refusing to meet eye contact with him, I shyed away and looked down at my lap. I could feel his chest lag and him sigh.

"Come on, we need to get you back on track," he smiled. I gently crawled off his lap and stood up, only to feel my legs shake and to fall back into Niall's chest.

Niall let out a loud laugh and I could myself blushing. "Come on," he said softly, picking me up in his arms and carrying me. Normally, I would protest but I felt so weak, I decided against it.

"Here, why don't you go have a shower love and I will make you a hot drink of something," he said. I nodded, knowing that this was going to be my second shower in about an hour but they always cheered me up.

They got me alone where I could really think to myself and not be distracted by the chaotic life around me. And what was better is that I think Niall remembered that minor detail.

I closed the door behind me and stripped, almost jumping into the shower. I let the water pelt onto me and found myself deeply emerged into my thoughts.


However long later, I got back into Niall's warm and comfortable clothes. I rubbed the cotton fabric against my skin and again, smelt his scent radiating off them.

I found Niall leaning against the counter of the kitchen deep in thought. I almost found it cute seeing his eyes furrowed together and his lips slightly pursed.

He hadn't noticed me being there and I had hardly noticed myself just staring at him. I cleared my throat and his eyes immediately drew to me. I felt my self-consciousness appear again and stared down at the floor.

"Hey May, I made you some hot chocolate," he smiled. "Thanks," I croaked and made my way cautiously towards him. He just gave me a reassuring glance and then looked back to the window he was previously staring at.

I desperately wanted to know what he was thinking but it was rude, especially after he had done all of this to help me. I sighed silently and took a sip of my hot chocolate.

It was Josh that came into my mind. What was to become of us? What were we anyway? "You ok?" asked Niall pulling me out of my thoughts.

Our eyes met and for once I didn't pull away.

"Yeah, you?"

His eyes pulled away from mine and I could see sadness enveloping them.

"Not at all."
