Snapbacks & Tattoos

I saw him. The boy who broke my heart. Was it really him? I couldn’t tell. As much as I hated him for breaking my heart, I wanted to see him. I couldn’t see him now. I was still wearing his favorite snapback he gave me. He would only use it against me. I shouldn’t care but I do. I was best friends with his sister, who never told him that she’s still friends with me. I was grateful for that, the only thing that boy did to me was break me down. And it was the worst 2 years ever, so demanding and controlling. Since he was living on LA with that band of his, he was never home. His family and mine had been close for as long as I could remember. And I was thankful nothing changed after he broke me. We lived in Mullingar, so I didn’t keep myself from his family. Only when he visited once in a blue moon. And this would be his second visit. And something told me he was going to toy with my heart and emotions again. Will I forgive him and take him back?


5. Chapter 4

The next morning I laid in bed, thinking. I wasn’t sure if Niall was going to live up to what he promised. I thought about what he would do to James and I. He could ruin mine and James whole relationship, after thinking for a long long time I made a decision. I had to do it, before Niall could do any damage. I sat up and texted James.

Me: We should talk.

James: What’s up?

Me: This is hard…

James: What is it?

Me: I’ll start by saying I love you…

James: Ok…?

Me: But I think we should break up…

James: Why, were so good together…

Me: I’m sorry. Bye.

He didn’t answer after that. I’m glad he didn’t too. I was upset about it. He knew that I’ve always still had feelings for Niall. Niall was my first time and first love as well. James was just the ‘next one’ when I was done being played with. He was there when I was vulnerable. I knew we wouldn’t last forever. I was shocked we lasted this long.

Eventually I got out of bed. I got up to take a shower. I grabbed a towel, clean clothes, and my phone. I turned music on and showered.


I just showered and was heading back to my room, I opened the door. To my surprise there was Niall sitting on my bed looking at my wall of pictures. I rolled my eyes when he smirked. I out my phone on the charger and threw my clothes in the hamper. I turned around facing him.

“What are you doing here?” I asked bluntly.

“Just visiting.” He said.

“Wow” he said getting closer to a picture.

“What?” I asked.

“That was forever ago” he said pointing.

“That was the last day I saw you before you left.” I say kind of sad.

“Don’t be sad… I never meant to hurt you. You were my everything and I screwed that up.” He said looking at the ground.

I was felt bad, but knew I shouldn’t. I just left and went downstairs realizing it was happening again. When I went down stairs I saw that Niall’s family was here. I greeted them then searched for Bri.  Although she was his sister, she respected every opinion I had about him.

I found her in the back yard talking to my sister.

“Hey” I say.

“Hi” they say as I sit down at the table.

“What ya guys doing?” I asked.

“Just chilling” Sam said.

“Oh, well guess who was in my room awaiting my return?” I say.

“Oh, I didn’t even know he was here.” Bri spoke.

“Yeah, he was looking at my picture wall.” I explained.

They were shocked.

“You should talk to him…” Sam said.

“Why?” I asked.

“Bri says he’s changed. And we all know he still loves you.”

I didn’t answer. I knew she was right. Then Niall sits at the table next to me.

“Hi” I said.

Sam and Bri decided to get up and leave me alone with Niall.

“Hi.” He said back.

I was trying to see if I could have a normal conversation with him.

“How are you?” I asked.

“I’m fine, you?” he said faking a smile.

This was hard… seeing him hide his pain.

“I’m okay, I guess.” I say.

“What’s wrong?” he asked


“Don’t lie…”

“How did you know?”

“I’ve known you forever, Kel.”

I felt my heart jump when he said ‘Kel’. He is the only one who has ever called me that. But I didn’t answer him.


“Fine… James and I broke up…”
