Nothing like us

Melissa is a player who's only interest is to break boys' heart like they broke hers.. But what happens when she meets a punk guy who is dying to know her secrets?


14. Chapter 13

I get inside just to see my mother waiting for me.

"I'm so sorry!" She cries.

"What?" I say walking into the kitchen to get some water.

"I left you alone all of yesterday!" She says coming into the kitchen.

Ah, that's why she didn't notice I was gone. Huh.

"It's fine." I sip my water and walk up to my room before she tries to initiate any small talk.

I throw myself on the bed, my head was pounding. Except it wasn't the hangover anymore. I was just confused. Confused as to what happened today. Actually just completely dumbfounded as to what has been happening to me lately.

I don't know why I'm even thinking about it. Normally at this hour I would be out, doing some random shit at the bar, yet here I am fantasizing about the same person for way too long. My phone buzzes and I find a text message from Demi.

I really am not in the mood for this crap, so I ignore it. I look out the window to see Niall enter his room.

God this isn't going to help, hell, it's going to distract me. As much as I want to leave my window seat, head over to that bar and just have what I used to call 'fun'. I stay put, and just watch as Niall slumps down in his bed. His house was adjacent to mine

My phone buzzes and this time it's a call. I decide to answer it.

"What do you want Demi?" I say bitterly.

"It's Harry."

"Oh, sorry. What is it?" I ask.

"You haven't met up with us in ages. What's up?"

"Want to come over?" I plead. I really need someone who knows me and that will listen. Demi is way out of the question. Harry is the only person I know.

"Be there in ten." He hung up with that and I just slumped down in my seat. Looking out the window again.

Niall's POV

I come up to my room and get my homework out of my backpack. I had so much crap to do. All the subjects swamp us with homework and plus I have to learn some songs for that class, and also for photgraphy.

Photography! Shit! I forgot all about that. I take out my camera, hoping to take a picture of Melissa. I look over to her window right outside of mine and she's not there. Well, I'll just have to do it another time. I don't have photography until Thursday so it's fine.

As I look out the window I see Harry outside her door. What the hell is he doing at her house?

I thought today we had gone somewhere. I thought today meant something. I thought it meant something to her. I guess not considering she's letting him inside her damn room!?

Melissa's POV

I let Harry upstairs without letting my mom see him. Not that she doesn't know who he is. Just that she probably wouldn't approve of him. She's never really met him, and she doesn't know that he's one of my closest friends. It's probably better to just keep it that way. For her, Liam Payne and I are the bestest of friends, hanging out everyday. I'd like to not mess this façade up for her.

"Why did you call me up so quickly? Did you?" He says pointing to the bed.

"God no!" I say slapping him on the arm laughing.

"Well?" He says plopping down on the bed.

"I-I.. Well. I don't know actually."

"You called me over to tell me you don't know?" He says smiling at me.

"I just." I just sigh, sitting down in my desk chair. I rub my face trying to conjur up the words.

"Is this about that blonde kid?"

"Yeah. His name's Niall."

"Man you even remember his name, this must be pretty serious." Harry jokes and I just send him a glare.

"Well what is it? Do you love this guy?" He laughs and I just stay silent playing with my hands.

"You love him?!" He yells.

"No! I mean, not yet. No. I don't know okay?!" I fumble with the words. I don't love him, I can't love someone that I've known for so little.

He just laughs, pulling the chair I'm in closer.

"What so wrong about that?" He smiles.

"I don't want to go back to liking someone." I say quietly. Harry was the only person I ever told about that incident. I hadn't told my mom, no one. No one knew that I loved that boy more than anything and ever since I was.. Raped, well. I can't handle having feelings for anyone. I still wake up some nights thinking about that.

Harry just comes closer to me.

"Mel, that happened in the past. I know it's hard, but this guy. He's changing you and that's great. He's made you happy. I haven't seen you this happy for a long time." He smiled and I started to cry a bit. I remember when my dad was still around, when my brother was still here.

"I think I really am starting to like him." He just shakes his head smiling.

"You can't say love huh?"

I just smile back and he hugs me. I give him a quick peck on the check thanking him. I'm still confused as to what I should do. Although, this has helped a lot.

Niall's POV

I watch from my bedroom as I see them exchanging stares and he smiles at her. What the hell are they talking about?

Why am I so jealous about it anyway. I should've known Melissa can't keep up with someone for more than a day. I can't believe it though!

She's just. I don't get it! I thought I showed her that I cared. I thought I showed her everything that I could.

I-. I am falling for someone who couldn't care less for me.

He better treat her right. He better give her everything I tried to.

I hope he is to her everything I tried to be. I hope that he doesn't let her ruin herself more than she has already.

Melissa's POV

I say goodbye to Harry and head back upstairs. I think about what I confessed to him previously and think as to how I would tell Niall. If I were to ever tell him.

I just can't sum up the courage to do it. I can't go up to him and tell him, that's not how it works.. At least not for me.

I sigh and just throw myself on the bed, hoping to catch some sleep.

The next morning I wake up, turning off my alarm and decide to take a quick shower and get dressed. I put on some skinny jeans and throw on some t-shirt.

I look out my window and see Niall is heading out to his car. I just stay put. I don't want to see him in the morning, maybe even the rest of the day. I don't know what will happen and I'm scared to confront it.

I head out as I see his car has passed and I walk to school, thinking about this whole situation. I don't want a boyfriend. I've never had one since, well, back then. It's always just been a fling.

Niall's POV

I step out to my car, looking around for Melissa and then just open the doors. Seeing that she isn't coming outside. She usually is out by now. She's probably just ignoring me.

I drive to school, parking my car and walking inside. I shrug and look around to see if she's there.

I just groan as I don't see her anywhere and head to my classes. I'll hopefully distract myself a bit there.

During break I was set out to clear things up with Melissa. I wanted to tell her that I'm done with this on and off things.

"Niall right?" Harry comes up to me. I swear he's the last person I wanted to see in this moment.

"What?" I bite.

"So Melissa didn't tell you huh? Should've guessed, she'd be one to do that." The hell is he talking about? Is he here to rub his relationship in my face?

"What? That you guys hooked up last night?" I push.

"Wait wha-. No!" He laughs.

"Really the opposite actually." He says.

"Well?" I ask, getting tired of this conversation.

"Listen. Mel is complicated okay? But you're the first person that she ever really liked. I need you to talk to her."
