Like children * Complete *

We all made choices we regret; choices that tear us apart. We deplore them so much we wish we could start all over again.
But even with a second chance, can what has been broken be fixed?

16. Chapter 15

I push my father on the streets as fast as I can to get away from the house; I couldn’t bear staying near it. But a short while later, my father stops me.

“What happens to you, Eileen?” He stares at me with wonder but I try to avoid his look.

“I...It’s...” I stutter but I can’t find my word; I can’t find a lie good enough to explain why I acted that way. He takes my arm and leads me toward a bench. We sit down but I don’t talk.

“Don’t you think you owe me a few explanations?” he sighs soon afterwards. I know he don’t to force me to talk about it but he is right; I have to talk about it.

I start to speak and it appears I can’t stop myself afterwards. I tell him about the last time I heard about Niall, about how sad I felt all this time while hoping he would call me one day. I tell him about how much I want to have my best friend back but I don’t say a word about me going back in 2010; he would have thought I was mad.

“So you mean you want from the deepest part of your heart to have him back in your life?” he repeats slowly and I nod.

“Then, why did you run away?” he raises an eyebrow.

“I don’t really know...” I reply looking ahead; I don’t want to see how he is going to react. “It’s like... I’m afraid of him not recognizing me. I wish to have him back so much but I’m afraid of what he could say.” Tears formed in eyes. I feel so pathetic to think that but I just can’t help it.

“You shouldn’t be afraid of that. You never know what he could say. And I don’t think he forgot you; the both of you spent about twelve years together. You saw each other every day; this can’t be forgotten as easily as you think it can.” He stands up and smiles at me. “You should go and see him as long as he is in town.” And he walks away.

I stay on the bench and think about what he told me. He was right; Niall couldn’t have forgotten everything, could he? I mean, he must have so much on his mind now.

“Is everything you just tell the truth, Eileen?” I hear a voice say behind me.

I turn around and see Niall, sadness and shame written all over his face.
