23. What was that Supposed to Mean?

Josh's POV

I drummed my fingers on the steering wheel as I pulled into a parking spot outside Niall's flat. I couldn't get the question May had asked out of my head.

"Has Niall told you yet?"

What was that supposed to mean? Was this the thing which happened last night. A spark of anger ran through my veins as I slammed my car door shut. They were keeping a secret from me and I didn't like it. May was my fucking girlfriend and she wasn't telling me this.

I stormed into the block and pushed the button violently to get into the elevator. It opened up immediately and I stepped inside, slamming down onto the 'level 6' button and telling the elevator to 'hurry the fuck up'.

As soon as the elevator 'ding'ed and opened up, I sprinted out and hammered my fist onto the door. "What the fuck is going on?" asked a deep voice. My anger was boiling and as soon as the door opened a fraction, iI burst in shouting for Niall.

"What the fuck Josh? Thanks for slamming the door in my face!" said Zayn outraged, redoing his hair and rubbing his forehead. "I'm not in the mood Malik," I muttered," where's Niall?" "He's in the sitting room," Zayn mumbled.

I pushed the door open roughly and glared at Niall. "Hey Jo-... What's going on?" he asked nervously. "Don't give me that shit Niall! May told me you had something to tell me and I want to know right now!" I shouted angrily.

Niall's face lit up with anger, fear and confusion but I wanted to know. I needed to know. I hated secrets being hid from me, I knew they were secrets and all but this was my girlfriend and in a relationship, we were supposed to have trust. Therefore no secrets.

"Wait here," said Niall and walked off. I waited on the sofa patiently but became more and more fidgety when he didn't return for a while. Niall finally came back with his laptop and sat down next to me.

Niall's POV

I was confused and scared and angry. Memories from last night made me want to punch a wall but I had already done that and Zayn would get on my case. At first I didn't know what Josh was talking about. I was so scared that May wanted to tell him the big secret.

The very big one and I knew that I wasn't ready for that, I hadn't thought May was either. But then I realised that May was talking about the tweets and how I said I was going to tell the boys.

I opened up my laptop and logged in quickly. I was about to click on safari when I was interrupted by Josh's finger penetrating my vision. "Whose that?" he asked. I looked at who he was pointing to and my eyes widened.

"Um, that's my girlfriend-- No, my ex-girlfriend," I muttered and quickly clicked on safari. Shit. Shit. Shit. Why had I kept that. I had changed my wallpaper on my iPhone but not on my laptop. Fuck.

"If you don't mind me asking, why do you have a photo of you and your ex-girlfriend kissing when you have broken up?" he asked carefully. I sighed," because I still love her." Josh stayed silent and I used this as an opportunity to get Twitter up.

I signed into it in silence and clicked on different buttons quickly, eventually arriving at a whole set of horrible tweets directed towards May. Josh took in a sharp breath and took the laptop from me.

"What's going on?" asked Zayn cautiously. I just motioned him to come over and look, not able to really speak since my mind was on other things. Things like the summer 3 years ago. I shook my head and looked at Josh, waiting for a response.

"Why didn't she tell me?" he asked quietly, almost hurt. "Beats me," I muttered and grabbed my laptop from his lap. I did know but it was May's turn to tell Josh, he was her boyfriend.

Even in my mind I sounded bitter and spiteful, god knows what I would have been like if I spoke. I slammed my door shut and exited out of safari. I lay down on my bed and clicked on 'Photos'.

I had kept all of them. All of the photos we had taken from that summer. Each one was a such a happy memory, bringing pain to my heart. I missed this so badly, I wanted it back. I wanted May back.

Josh's POV

I was slightly shocked at Niall's reaction. He had just stormed out without a word and I had a feeling it had something to do with the wallpaper I had pointed out. Zayn started to walk forward, obviously going to Niall but I stopped him.

"Give him time and then I will go. I messed things up," I said. He raised his eyebrow, shaking his head softly," I don't think that's a good idea mate." "I have to, I messed it all up and I feel bad. Please, I need to fix this," I begged.

He sighed and nodded," fine but don't tell me I didn't warn you." And with that he walked out. What was that supposed to mean. What was so bad that could hurt me?

I sighed and walked slowly to Niall's door, all previous emotions of anger forgotten. I knocked on the door softly but there wasn't an answer. I took a deep breath and twisted the handle, poking my head through the door.

Niall's head jerked up and he slammed the lid of his MacBook down. "Er, Niall. Are you ok?" I asked but it was a pretty stupid question since he obviously wasn't. There were stains of tears on his cheeks and his eyes were red and puffy.

"What do you want Josh?" he asked. I sighed," to help. I just want to know what happened so we can help." Niall shook his head and looked out the window, his eyes becoming glazed as if he was dreaming.

"Can I at least know her name?" I asked. He didn't say anything and I was about to try again when he interrupted me. "Her name was Elizabeth," he said, his voice cracking at the name. "How long ago was this?" I asked.

"3 years ago." His voice was monotone, like it was just slipping off his tongue. "Where is she now?" I asked. "London." "And do you still keep in touch?" I asked again. He paused and his mouth was slightly agape, as if he was about to speak.

"Sort of," was all that came out. What did that mean? "Look, you just need to speak to her. I'm sure she loves you back and--" "She doesn't Josh. She hates me and she has a boyfriend. She hates me so much that she never wants to speak to me ok? So just... leave."

His anger frightened me and I stepped back, nodding slightly. I didn't know what to reply to that. "Sorry Nialler," I said and walked out the room, leaving Niall staring out the window, tears building up in his eyes. 

*****

I know most of you will be very confused right now but he said 'Elisabeth' for a reason. Everything will become clearer in the next few chapters, do not worry!! And please keep on reading!! Was it a good chapter?? Hope it was! It was kinda sad and I feel so bad for Nialler.

Also, I am not really sure if any of you noticed but I slipped in a few clues referring to the title and to the rest of the future chapters... ;)
