I Can... Explain? (Completed)

"Melissa please wait!" "Leave me alone Niall!" I shouted but didn't turn around. I was determined to shake him away. He'd done enough. "Melissa! Please! I-I-I-I can explain?" "What's there to explain? We were happy together and then one day you left to become famous! That's all there is Niall! All there is. So just go back to your famous rock star life and leave me ALONE!" I scoffed off, leaving him in the dust. Copyright © 2013

Melissa

"Niall?" I asked my voice practically shaking. "Hey" He said simply. "Hey? That's all you're saying is 'hey'?" "Yeah?" "Niall you don't understand do you?" "Melissa please just hear me out!" I didn't want to hear his lame excuses, I shut my book and got up. I could hear him behind me. "Melissa please wait!" "Leave me alone Niall!" I shouted by didn't turn around. I was determined to shake him away. He'd done enough. "Melissa! Please! I-I-I-I can explain?" "What's there to explain? We were happy together and then one day you left to become famous! That's all there is Niall! All there is. So just go back to your famous rock star life and leave me ALONE!" I scoffed off, leaving him in the dust. Luckily I didn't hear him behind me, I resisted the sudden urge to look back. Guilt rushed through my veins, I sighed and turned back but he was gone. 'Way to go Melissa. Not only did you ruin the best relationship you'll ever have but you lost your best friend'. But then I remembered that all this was his fault, he had left me. Then again.. No. I needed to forget about Niall, he was my past. Once again I was looking at the ground, at my feet. Suddenly someone bumped into me, "Niall I said leave me-" I looked up to someone other than Niall. "Who's Niall?" The guy asked chuckling. "No one, who are you?" "I'm Zach Lancaster and you must be Melissa?" "Yes! Lovely to meet you" I said, forcing a smile. "Are you all right? You were just yelling at someone named Niall?" "It's nothing forget it. Do you want to go somewhere and talk?" "I would love to but class starts in ten minutes and unfortunately mine is on the other side of campus. But later, where do you want me to meet you?" "Um.. the quad again?" "Sure sounds good, see you later Melissa." "Bye" I said, watching him walk away. Again I sighed, 'I'm not going to let Niall interfere with this. Not at all.' I was determined.

- After class -

I met up with Zach in the quad after class, I parked myself on the bench I was on before and just chatted with him. "So I know your name and you know my name.. tell me about yourself." He said with a big smile. "What do you want to know?" He chuckled, "Everything." "Well that could take a while, I have a very interesting life." He chuckled, "Well I know you have a terrible sense of humor." "Hey!" I said whacking him playfully on the arm, "People happen to think I'm very funny!" "Like that Niall person?" I wanted to do a face palm but I was in public for Pete's sake! "Why do you keep asking me about Niall?" "Oh so there is a Niall?" I sighed, "Yes. He's my ex-boyfriend. I ran into him before I ran into you." "Oh" Was all he could say, "Did you just break up before you saw me?" "Oh goodness no, he was just.. never mind." "No I want to know" His eyes were full of concern and unfortunately lots of interest. "Well we were best friends back when I lived in Ireland and then I guess we started going out last year before we started our senior year. Then he auditioned for the X-Factor and-" "Wait, wait are you talking about Niall from One Direction?" I nodded. "You dated him? Wow! Do you know how many girls are going-" "Yeah, I know. But I'm over him." I said trying to sound convincing as I looked at my feet. "Melissa, I don't think you are." "Of course I am!" "Melissa, I'm a guy and I've dated lots of girls. And it's pretty obvious when I know they're not over their exes." I sighed, "I guess you're right. I mean we've been through a lot together and-" "See? You're not over him. My advice to you is that you go talk to him." "You're right" I said grabbing my stuff and getting up, "I'm really sorry Zach." "It's all right, seriously I understand. This stuff happens to me all the time, I'm use to it." "There's a girl out there for you. I just know it." "Thanks Melissa, I'll see you around?" "Yep, see ya." As I walked away I thought about how mean I was to Niall. He just wanted to explain, though I was mad I probably should've just let him talk. 'What was I thinking? Trying to start another relationship when I wasn't ready to leave the first one? My life was seriously messed up!' I took out my phone and dialed Niall, hopefully his number was still the same.. seconds later it rang. 'Thank goodness!' It took at least three rings for him to pick up, "Melissa?" "Niall? I'm so sorry I was-" "It's ok. It was my fault, I shouldn't have just left you like that. I should've involved you more." "Niall I know you and I know you just didn't want me to be upset that one day you might be leaving to become famous. And look what happened? You're in the biggest boy band in the world. Congrats." "Thanks, um.. do you want to meet up somewhere?" "Yeah that would be good, where?" "I'm at the my flat with my band mates right now.. do you mind coming over here?" "Um sure but wouldn't we rather talk in private?" "They'll leave us alone." "Ok.." "I would go somewhere else or meet you in your dorm or something but unfortunately being famous has its ups and downs. I can't go out really without being mobbed by fans and paparazzi." "I understand." "Yeah I'm sorry, do you want the address?" "Yeah just let me-" Before I could reply I felt a big hand go over my mouth causing me to drop my phone. "Melissa? Melissa? Melissa?!" I could hear Niall's panicked voice coming from the phone, as I struggled to get away from the person. "STOP STRUGGLING!" They yelled in my ear and stomped on my phone, causing it break into many pieces.
