My Bullysitters

11. What Went Wrong...

*Flashback*

Katie's P.O.V

 

"Liam!" I yelled, running up to him, engulfing him in a hug.

"Hey! How was your last day as an eighth grader?" He asked, grinning at me.

"Eh, just glad to be moving up the ladder." I laughed. "How about you? You ready to be a senior?" I asked.

"Yeah, one year away from being out of that place!" He exclaimed. "Now you get to experience the high school life!" He added.

 

Liam and I were probably as close as two people could get, besides Harry that is. Being Niall's best mate since the first day of school, he was like another brother to me.

 

"Where's Niall?" I asked.

"He said he was going to stop to bring home some food." Liam chuckled.

"Well, you wanna watch the soccer game inside 'til he gets home?" I asked.

"Sounds like a plan!" He said, already walking in.

When a set of commercials came on yet again, Liam began to stare at me.

"What?" I finally joked, now looking him in the eyes instead of my peripheral vision.

His staring continued, a weird look could be noticed in his eyes. He then began to lean his head in closer.

"L-Liam, what are you doing?" I asked, scooting away from him.

The look in his eyes faded as he looked at his hands in his lap.

"I just thought you wanted the same thing." He said, now looking at me again.

"What are you talking about?" I questioned, my eyebrows knitting together.

"Katie, be my girlfriend." He said, his tone seeming to be more upbeat.

"What? Liam, are you feeling ok?" I asked, concern clear in my voice.

"I'm perfectly fine!" He exclaimed. "Will you?" He asked.

I felt awful for what I was about to say. His smile was bright, showing he truly meant what he said, and expecting me to agree. But I couldn't.

"Liam, listen. I'm flattered by your feelings you have for me, but don't you think we're better off the way we are now?"

My heart nearly broke as his smile faded.

"What?" He asked, his tone now sounding a bit hurt.

"Li, you're like a brother to me, I just don't think it would work out is all I'm trying to-"

"No! Just stop."

"Liam I-" He then shoved me away before fleeing from my home.

When did he have feelings for me, better yet, how long had he felt this way? I loved Liam, but as my brother. I also knew I couldn't deal with the age gap. I normally don't care about the age, but being the same age as Niall, I worried I wouldn't really make it with him. I knew as he got older, he would want a more physical relationship, which is something I wouldn't be able to give to him. He deserved someone closer to his age than me, someone who could easier fit his needs. I wasn't that person...

 

After what had happened between Liam and I, things were never the same. After avoiding me for about a month, he then bumped into me at the park. That was the first day he hit me, the first day I knew things would never be good between us again.

I ran to Harry that day, needing the comfort of my best friend. I was then rejected by him, explaining that I was selfish and a despicable person for how I treated Liam. I then cried my way home, only finding Niall was out with some producer or something to do with his music.

I was alone on my darkest day.

I still don't understand why Harry hated me for not dating Liam. He always encouraged me to follow my heart, and my heart lead me to him, only to have him shatter it to pieces with his words.

After that, Liam, Harry, and the guys whom they had befriended began to constantly bully me. Never once explaining a thing to me..

 

Harry's P.O.V

 

I shook my head as I tried to escape my thoughts. What kind of so called friend was I?!

After Liam had told me what happened on that day, he told me to forget about her. I of course protesting to forget my best friend and crush. Liam then threatened to make my life hell if I chose her over him.

I was a cowered.

After Katie predictably came to me, I sent her away. For good.

I then followed Liam and the rest of the boys in basically making her life miserable. I soon forgot we were ever even friends, feeling this was how it always worked, us on the top, and her on the ground.

How did I let this happen, better yet, how can I even dream of fixing it? I can't afford to let my guard down in front of the boys, but how was I supposed to stay strong when I was exposed to my kryptonite everyday?

Katie, was my weakness.
