4. A Strange Boy

I woke to the sun shining bright in my eyes.Gosh, I was tired. What time was it? I looked at the green alarm clock next to my bed. It said 10:00, I slept for what, eight hours? Adjsndjfnsn. I am NOT a morning person. Wake me up before 8:00 and I kill you. I went down the small elevator to the breakfast room. All I saw was a lady sitting at a desk. 

"um, excuse me?" I said to her. As she looked up her pointy glasses rose up her nose.

"yes dear." she said in an old lady voice. 

"where is the breakfast room?" I asked

"there is no breakfast room young lady. Incase you havnt noticed, this isn't the Hilton." she said. Well, someones in a bad mood. I thanked her and checked out quickly. Time to get breakfast! There was a Denny's across the street so I went there. I sat at the only empty booth after waiting in line for a few minutes and looked at the menu. 

"hello, I'm your waitress, Angela, may I take your drink order?" she asked politely.

"uh yes, I'll have lemonade please." lemonade was my favorite drink. I think I'll have bacon, eggs, toast, pancakes, and a side of hash browns. A few minutes later the same girl came back with my lemonade, and asked for my food order.

"I'll have the 'epic movie special breakfast' please. With a side of hash browns." I waited for my food to come for too long when a strange boy in a hood and sunglasses walked over and sat across from me. 

"hello ma'am, there were no empty seats so the waiter said if it was okay with you I could sit here." he asked in a low, slightly raspy voice.

"I guess I don't have a choice, do I?" I asked him back.

"nope." he said grinning.

"well then, mysterious man, why don't you tell me about yourself so I don't have to sit with a stranger." I said, intrigued by this strange boy. 

"okay, we'll my names Harry, I'm from Cheshire, in england, I like to sing, my best friends are named Louis, Liam, zayn, and Niall. What about you lovely lady?" he said taking off his sunglasses. I recognized his face from somewhere. From... The x factor? I used to love that show before I was completely cut off from the outside world. I thought for a few minutes about the x-factor and when he was on there but i couldnt really remember.

"umm, so whats your name?" he asked, probably wondering why i was taking so long to say something.

"oh, uh, im Juliet. Im from Bryansford, in Northern ireland. my best friend is..." My... best friend? I dont have... should i say Jack?

"Uh, sorry, your best friend is...?" Harry from cheshire said.

"Um, well. I dont... have a best friend because after my mum died my dad moved us to Birchwood in england and it was kind of hard for me to make new friends when everyone at my school knew each other since they were little. But before I moved my best friend was Jack." I was pretty embarrassed that i had pretty much no friends, but, what I didn't tell Harry from cheshire was that i didn't actually go to school after I moved. i stayed at home all day exept when i snuck out. 

"Oh, I-Im sorry for you. Losing your mum like that must've been pretty horrible. If you dont mind me asking, how old were you when she passed?" Harry asked. 

"15." I hope he couldn't see the tears forming in my eyes.

"I-I-Im so sorry." i could tell he was sincere by the way his eyes were watering too.

"Sir, may i take your order?" Angela, the waitress asked Harry as she set my food on the table.

"Oh, I will have the Turbo movie special please." he said as he handed the menu to her. Wow, this place really likes movie specials.

"So, you've heard my story, Harry, now whats yours?" i asked him.

"Well im in a band called One Direction. I tried out for the x-factor a few yea-"

"I knew it!" I said loudly, I KNEW he was on the x-factor.

"You're a fan?" he asked, smirking.

"Uhh, Yeah! Totally! I love one... one?" OH NO. I was just trying to act like a normal teenage girl. Not like an idiot. I could feel my cheeks flushing as he looked at me strangely.

"One Direction." He finished my sentence. I looked down as he continued talking.

"So, the other lads were on it at the same time, and we became a band." 

"Congrats on getting first place!" i said trying to act normal even though I wasn't there to see who won. I mean, surely one-the band won, right?

"Thanks... but we got third place." Oh dear. Why couldn't i just shut my stupid mouth. I sighed while looking down further.

"Juliet? Can I ask you something?" He said quieter. i looked up and replied.

"Sure, go ahead." 

"You don't really know who one direction is, do you?" He said looking down in my eyes.

Do I?

"I-*breath out* no, I don't know who one direction is." Embarrassed I tried to avoid eye contact.

"So, where were you the past few years?" he said in a joking tone, laughing at his own joke, but he stopped when he saw my face. And he saw the tears. 

"Oh, my god im sorry, did i say-"

"no, no i just need some air" i said as I fumbled with my wallet to get 10 out to pay for my food. I stumbled out of the door and sat on the ground. I honestly didn't care if i was sitting in the middle of the walkway, i just had to sit. I pulled my knees to my chest and squeezed my eyes closed. My head was spinning as the memories came flooding back. All the pain. Where had i been the past few years? What had I done? My whole life was a mess right now. I couldn't tell Harry. I couldn't tell anyone for that matter. I could faintly hear footsteps running up behind me. 

"Juliet! Juliet are you all right!?" I could faintly hear Harry yell. I didn't want Harry to be here. I wanted to be alone. Maybe I should just run away from population. Then no one would ever have to see my worthless face again. Why does Harry care about me? No one has cared about me since my mom died. My mom probably didn't even care about me. God probably doesn't care about me. Why else would he take my mom away? the only thing that kept me safe. My dad always did say that i should die because nobody loves me and im just a germ and all i can do is carry beer because im a worthless word that i shouldn't say. Then suddenly it stopped. All the fuzzy noises and cloudy images i could see through my squinted eyes. everything. finally, it was quiet. The only thing i felt was my body rolling over and hitting the ground. Then i was out cold.
