25. Chapter 24

Melissa's POV

I really don't want them to ask about this shit, I don't like to dwell on the past. Especially mine. After Liam decided to lie to Jamie, which I am still unsure if they're dating or not. God I hope they aren't, I really don't want to fucking hang around Liam every time I call Jamie up. If that ever happens anyway. I don't intend to be spending much time around her, but honestly I don't have much other company. Hell, at this point I only have Niall and Harry.

"So really nothing?" Jamie says looking between Liam and I. He looks at me and I roll my eyes.

"Anyway, we should go.." I state pulling Niall away from them.

"No why don't you stay! Please!" Jamie begs and I look over to Niall, he honestly wanted to stay too.

"Fine.." I huff and Niall holds me closer, making me smile. Liam groans and I want to kick him in the god damn groin, god how he gets on my damn nerves.

We walk around the rides, Jamie picking at her cotton candy and walking beside Liam. Niall holds me closer and I feel a bit uncomfortable with public displays of affection. He catches onto this and lightens his grip, I give him a small smile.

"It's beautiful." Jamie breathes and Liam smiles at her. I look away for a second. I don't want to see him in a different light.

"Do you all want to go on any rides?" Niall suggests to everyone.

"We just ate, so it's better not to." Jamie chuckles. I know that Liam was uncomfortable, and well so was I.

The whole time either Jamie or Niall were talking, considering Liam and I didn't even look at each other.

"So how do you both know each other?" Jamie whispers to Liam, probably thinking neither I nor Niall heard. I knew she wouldn't have let this go. Liam has an angry expression on his face and I think back to when we actually did first meet.

It was our first few days of elementary school, we were both pretty young. I cringe thinking about how a few years down the road I would have met David, and he would have consequently ruined my life.

I would have never imagined to meet Niall though, who would slowly try placing the pieces back together. But I'm too broken for him, and I wonder how much shit I have to put him through before he finally realizes this.

Liam and I were actually really good friends. We were both good at school, all summed up, we were nerds.


"Liam!" I shout, meeting him outside the humongous building, it was worn on the sides, considering it still needed reconstruction.

"Mel!" He smiled sweetly, coming up to hug me. We were finishing our 5th and final year of elementary.

"I can't believe we'll be in middle school!" He says contently. I smiled back to him, looking down at my pink skirt.

"I wonder how many things will change!" I say excitedly.

"I know one thing that never will." He smiles even wider.

"What's that?"

"We'll always be best friends right?!" He exclaims and I hug him.

"Of course Li! We'll never leave each other!" I confidently smile.


I look down to my feet, suddenly stopping to try to regain my thoughts. Fuck this. I can't do this crap.

Little did we know as stupid little kids, those type of promises are never held.

We separated in middle school, him going one way and I the other.

That's where I met David. Liam knew about him, I mean, we always talked. I knew David was jealous of that.

Anyway, David and I hit it off the first few days and were together throughout all of middle school, until, well... It happened. We broke up in the first year of high school, and I transferred over to Liam's school. He was excited I guess, he still remembered me like the little innocent prude I was before.

I guess I hadn't changed for the better.


"Mel!" He yells, coming towards me, wanting to hug me.

"The fuck?" I grumble as he tries to pull me into a hug.

"What's wrong?" He asks concerned.

"You. Seriously, get off." I say pushing his arms off of me.

"What?" He repeated, not really knowing why my sudden change in humor. Well, not sudden, but it was abrupt to him anyway.

"Piss off." I bite and walk in the school ignoring him.


The next few months were spent with me making fun of him, and well, creating the well known reputation that I have in this school.

I hung out with Demi and occasionally Harry in those periods. Demi was the worst influence I had to say. Harry was bad, but Demi screwed me over, taking me to parties, bars, everything.

I cringe back at these memories and I hear Niall trying snap me out of my day-dreaming.

"Melissa?" He says sweetly.

"What?" I say quite bitterly. He sighs for a second.

"Sorry.." I mumble, pulling him closer, and he pecks me on the cheek. I wrap my arms around his neck and I hear Jamie clear her throat.

"What do you want?" I smile, looking over to her and I see Liam's expression and immediately drop my hands, frowning again.

"You both are so cute." She smiles and I rub my neck, feeling a bit out of place here. Jamie looks between Liam and I for a second.

"Oh! Look over there! More candy!" Jamie smiles.

"Come on Niall, let's go get some!" She pulls Niall by the arm. I know what she was trying to do, leaving Liam and I here.

I pull Niall back to me. Apart from her little scheme, I feel a bit jealous leaving Niall with another girl.

"I love you." He whispers and I can't help but smile.

I look back at Liam, sighing.. This is going to end badly.

We stay quiet before he finally speaks up.

"What happened between you and David?" He asks.

The fuck? Who the fuck ever mentioned that god damn name?!

"Who the fuck-" I start, raising my tone.

"Melissa. Hear me out." He starts and I don't let down.

"No, fuck you Liam, you have no right to bring up my shit!" I growl.

"Niall brought it up." He comments calmly and I have half a mind to fucking kick him in the crotch, trying to mix Niall in all this. Although, I am incredibly curious as to what Niall said... Unless Liam is spatting bullshit and brought him up only to have my attention.

"What did Niall say?"

"He just said there was an incident. What happened?" He asks and I see some concern in his eyes. I don't know why he even cares about me, I don't about him. Why does he need to know my shit?

"It's none of your damn business." I say, looking around for Niall, I'm not putting up with anymore of this.

"Yes it is! Because if you don't remember correctly we were best friends!"

"Yes exactly, we were!" I say raising my voice once again. "We were! We aren't anymore okay!?"

"That's all I want to know! I want to know why! Because I honestly cared about you Mel!" He says exasperated.

"Don't fucking call me that." I growl.

"What the hell is wrong with you!? More over, what the hell happened to you!?" He shouts.

"A lot of shit okay?! God we don't all have a perfect fucking life!"

Liam's POV

Melissa looks over to me pissed, and I can't help but think back to how we were before all of this. Niall brought back so many memories of us. When she was sweet and innocent, and didn't go around banging half the male population. Niall is slowly bringing her back and I'm happy for them.

I still want to know why she acts like a slut though. She wasn't like this and I can't handle the thought of not knowing what the hell happened to my best friend.

"You think I have a perfect life?!"

She scoffs.

"Like hell I do okay?! Especially since you decided to fuck it up!" I yell, I'm resentful towards Melissa. She treated me like shit without a proper explanation.

"It's not my fau-" She starts but considers not finishing the sentence. After all, it was actually her fault. She started this shit.

"I just want to know what happened Melissa. I wanted to know why you started acting like that. What ruined our friendship. I miss it." I say honestly. As much as I want to cuss her out, telling her off. Screaming at how she's become such a whore. I can't, because I miss what we had.

Melissa's POV

He misses us? Well the old me is dead anyway. There is no going back to what we once had. I'm not saying there isn't a future, but there sure as hell isn't the old 'Mel' he once knew.

"I'm sorry. But I just can't do that." I sigh.

"I can't say it. I can't." I really wish I could.

He looks down, disappointed.

Fuck how many times I've seen that look.

"Why?" He asks. I'm pretty sure that he isn't actually asking the reason why I can't tell him. I think that he is asking 'Why' to everything. Everything I've become and everything I've done.

I look at him, not even knowing what to say, I don't know what to tell him.

There's nothing to say.

"I had no other choice. I-Liam, I'm sorry okay?" I choke. Fuck what is this? What happened to not caring about people?

"That won't suffice." He huffs.

"Well that's all I have." I run my hand through my hair and watch as Niall and Jamie come back.

"Everything alright?" Niall whispers in my ear.

"Yeah." I lie.
