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.


26. I should have done this ages ago

Niall’s POV

We had been here for around an hour and it was killing me. I wanted to leave. Now. Josh and May seemed to be even more ‘loved up’ and even though I wanted to puke all over them, my heart was aching to be in Josh’s position.

“Ok, boys. Sorry but we need to go, we have a rehearsal and that also means you Josh,” said Liam sadly. I shot up and walked out the room, grabbing my coat and pulling it on.

I could feel everyone’s eyes on me but I couldn't care less, I needed to leave. “Um, ok then,” muttered Harry. The boys said their goodbyes and I just waved nonchalantly.

I looked up and I was met with curious eyes which belonged to May’s. She instantly looked away but I didn't move. I stiffened and my muscles tensed. She was wearing my necklace.

The necklace that I had bought her. Why? I had no idea but she was and that was what mattered.

“Let’s go boys,” said Zayn, tugging me on my wrist as the others walked out but I shook my head. “I’ll be back in a minute, I just er, left my phone,” I mumbled and slipped out of Zayn’s grip.

Zayn sighed but nodded and walked out the door. I took a deep breath and walked back into the sitting room where May was cuddled on the sofa, her head in her knees and a soft whimpering sound coming from her mouth.

She was crying. It broke my heart but what confused me was the necklace around her neck. I noticed that no one else was here apart from us two so I spoke up.

“Why are you wearing that necklace?” I asked. Her head shot up and her eyes widened at the sight of me. “What does it matter to you?” she snarled. “I got you that necklace,” I rolled my eyes.

“And?” “If you hate me then why are you wearing it?” She rolled her eyes at me and stood up, wiping away the tears on her cheeks. “It’s just a nice necklace, nothing special and I like it. That doesn’t mean I like you or I wore it for you. The world doesn't revolve around you, you know?”

“You may think that just because you are some big celebrity who can win and break girls hearts means that the world does turn around you but hey, big boy, it doesn’t so get over yourself and leave,” she continued.

She looked down at the necklace and then ripped it off. I turned round, not wanting to see what she was going to do with it but got stopped by a small hand grabbing my arm.

She flung me round and glared at me. “Here, I should have done this ages ago,” she said and stuffed the necklace into my hand. She glared at me again and then walked away.

I felt my whole heart just rip into two. I wanted to crumple down to the floor and cry my heart out but then again, I didn't have a heart and this was May's apartment. I felt my eyes overwhelm with tears but I refused to let them out.

I could do that later, not now. As I heard a door slam shut, I felt all these realisation's bash into me.

I was horrible. I was a disgusting man who didn't deserve May. May was beautiful and friendly and funny and kind and everything I was not. How could I guy like me ever be with a girl like her? How had she even agreed at the beginning, 4 and a half years ago?

I had done something no human should ever do to someone they love. May was right not to trust me. She was right to give that necklace back and she was right that I shouldn't be speaking to her but I had to.

The promise I made wasn't going to be broken. I had to earn her trust, earn her kindness towards me and even though people were going to get hurt, it would be worth it because the prize was May. Even if I was just friends with her, that would make me beyond happy because then I would know that she would at least trust me as a friend.

Even if I wanted more, that wasn't going to happen. I just knew it. How could it? When I had hurt her so badly, no women would want to be with me!

"Er, Niall, are you ok?" I spun around on my heel and faced a confused looking Sophie. "Yeah, erm,I just left my um, phone here, that's all. I'll be going now," I said awkwardly. She nodded and flashed a smile," well, have a good day."

I waved back and sent her a small, fake smile. She walked back into the kitchen as I walked out of the apartment, shutting the door softly and walking down the corridors, out of the block.

Zayn was leaning against my car, head down and in deep thought. Normally, in this position people would imagine him smoking but he was getting through it and he was doing well.

As soon as the sound of gravel crumbling under my foot sounded, Zayn's head jerked up and he stared at me intently. "Did you do it?" he asked. "Did I do what?" "Did you do something that you regret or not?" he asked.

I sighed and looked down at the ground," sort of." I clambered into the car and slammed the door shut, hopefully sending him the message that I didn't want to talk about it. He sighed and jumped in, the other side, receiving my message and just keeping quiet.

The whole ride was silence, both of us in deep thought. What I said to Zayn was right. I regretted going but then I didn't. I never wanted that necklace to leave her, it was mean't to be special towards her but without going through that pain, I would never know what I had to do to earn her trust and friendship.

Although, it would be a lot harder since I had hurt her twice before, except she only knew one of them.
