Things I can't

Travelling all around the world, Harry left Hayley with only her eyes to wipe, untold words, a broken promise and a shattered heart.
But some things can't be erased : a past full of memories she'd rather forget but always will cherish, and an indelible mark, bonding them, forever will remain.
Three little words engraved in her skin and meaningless now that he's gone.


7. It's a secret between you and me

When I woke up, the sky was only beginning to clear up. I looked at the clock; it was six in the morning; I decided to get up. My head ached.
Not having eaten since I left England, I was hungry. Fortunately, the restaurant for breakfast opened at 6am. So I decided to go to it. There will be nobody at this time; especially not Harry who is a heavy sleeper, I thought.
Before going down, I passed quickly through the bathroom. There is no need to explain you in which state I was. I was still wearing my clothes from the day before; I had messy hair and huge black marks under the eyes and on the cheeks. A real scarecrow. I cleaned makeup traces on my face, I brushed my hair and I put on sweat pants and a sweater, and then I went to the hotel's restaurant.


Niall's POV

I woke up because my stomach was rumbling. It was only 6am; the boys were sleeping deeply.
I waited a little while but no one seemed to wake up. At this hour there wouldn't be a lot of people; I could go down to the hotel's restaurant without attracting attention.

When I arrived there was nobody there. Nobody except a girl who stood in front of the buffet. The more I approached the more I seem to have already seen this girl.
"Hayley ?"


Hayley's POV

I heard footsteps behind me getting closer and closer. I prayed that it wasn't Harry. Then I heard the person behind me say my name.
"Hayley ? Hayley, is that you ?" a man's voice said.
"Hi Niall," I said while I was turning around, a weak smile on my face.
"How you doing after all this time ?" he said happily, a wide smile on his face.
"I'm fine," I lied. "What about you ?" I said, forcing me to smile.
"Yes I'm good, thanks," he said, still smiling.

His smile .. I missed it so much. I've always been good friends with Niall. How could one not get on well with someone like him? Have you ever seen his little angel face? He brings a good mood with him wherever he goes.
Even though we lost contact after Harry broke up with me, I didn't blame him. The situation wasn't easy for him, I guessed.

We ate breakfast together and we talked for almost an hour. He made me laugh so much that one staff person came to us and told us to make less noise, we were the only ones awake in the hotel. It's crazy, the space of a moment he made me forget all my problems until he mentioned Harry in our conversation. I should have guessed. We were speaking about our lives, he was forced to talk about his band, it's a big part of his life. After that, he saw immediately that I didn't followed what he said.

"Hal' ? Are you okay?" he asked me, a worried look on his face. I didn't answer. "Oh, is it because I mentionned Harry?"
A tear flowed down my face.
"I'm so sorry Hal', I didn't think it always hurts you" he whispered as he put his arms around me.
"Don't worry, it doesn't matter. It's not your fault, you couldn't know. I think I should go back to my room and you in yours before the boys notice your abscence and that they arrive," I said.
"Yes, you're right. We stay in contact, okay ?"
"Of course Nialler," I smiled weakly. "Oh and, please, don't tell at the others that you saw me."
"No problem Honey, it's our little secret. I'm glad to see you again. See you soon".
"Me too. See you soon, bye"
Then we joined our respective rooms.
