Battle Scars

Heather has a past that has damaged her for life. She shuts everyone out and trusts no one. Then she meets Liam.


10. Panic

As soon as I got home, I began to panic. What the hell was going on. Liam said he liked me but what did he mean by that. He couldn't like me. It wasn't possible. The worst thing was, I think I liked him too.

I started breathing heavily. Oh god, I was having a panic attack. This couldn't be happening. OK, I needed to calm down. I needed someone to help calm me down. I grabbed my phone and called the first number I saw. Holding the phone to my ear, I heard rings. Come on, please someone pick up. Finally, I heard someone speak. "Hello," that gorgeous accent started calming me down. "Niall, can you please come over," I asked him desperately. "Heather?" he replied. "Are you OK?" I couldn't speak anymore, I just made a sort of strangled cry. He seemed to know something was wrong. "Hold on, OK, I'm coming, where are you?" I managed to choke out my address. "Alright, I'll be there in five minutes," he said and hung up.

Five minutes later, there was a knock on the door. I hurried to open it. When I saw Niall I threw myself into his arms. I was still freaking out and he could tell. He lead me over to the sofa and went to get me a glass of water. Then he sat down next me and tried to calm me down."Just breathe, OK?" he instructed. I did as I was told and began to calm down. Soon my breathing was back to normal. "You OK now?" he asked me. "Yeah I'm good now thanks," I told him. "Thank you so much for coming over," I thanked him. "Don't worry about it," he replied. "Anyway, I think I know what this is about." My head shot up. " You do?"

"Yeah, Liam came over to my flat really upset, said it was about you," 

"Is he really that upset?" I asked and Niall nodded.

"Yeah, he really likes you Heather, it's killing him that you don't like him back,"

"But I do like him, I really do and that's what scares me so much. Because I can't let him in. I just can't. I know it's hard to understand but I really can't. This is killing me too but there is a good reason why I'm shutting him out, trust me."

Niall didn't seem surprised by my outburst. He seemed to totally understand. " OK, I understand that you don't want to tell me but Liam deserves an explanation. He's broken at the moment and none of the boys like seeing him like this. You need to go and tell him,"

Dammit, why did he have to be right. Liam did deserve an explanation. "OK then, I guess I'll go tell him the truth."
