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?


26. Chapter 25

Liam looks at me shaking his head and I look back to Niall, I don't want to ruin this date. I've already twisted it enough.

"Niall, I'm tired." I breathe, not really wanting to spend anymore time with Jamie and Liam. He lets out a small sigh and looks back at me smiling. I'm pretty sure he knows that Liam and I fought, so he decides to just agree and say goodbye to the other two. I wave at Jamie and try to avoid eye contact with Liam. He's pissed and he's hurt and I don't want to deal with any of that.

"So?" Niall asks.


"What happened? Between you two?"

"It's a long story Niall."

He tips his head and I swear he's so incredibly innocent I don't even want to take that away by telling him what a shit person I am.

What could I say anyway?

Oh Liam and I were best friends, until the whole David thing happened and then I flipped my shit on him, acted like an ass, and he just reciprocated.

Oh yeah, Niall, remember when you punched him because he insulted me? Yeah I deserved that hate anyway, he was right.

I bite my lip, considering he's stayed silent, obviously not wanting to hear me cuss or say some stupid crap.

"Liam and I used to be friends.." I quietly comment.

"You two? Seriously?" He seemed a bit shocked. I just nod, continuing to walk beside him.

"Well what happened? You two seem to hate each other?"

"Like I said Niall, it's a long story." I comment, he tenses up again.

I don't want to get into this. Niall already knows enough shit and if he knows about this he'll probably be done. Done with everything about me. I know it.

I'd much rather keep him in the dark than bring out the truth and have it crush him or myself.

"I have time." He remarks.

"I don't." I comeback, hoping he'll just let it go.

"Melissa." He warns and I just roll my eyes.

"What is it? You don't want to know. It's a shit story."

"Yes I do! I want to know about you for Christ's sake!" I just laugh, like hell he does.

"You really want to know?" I say raising my voice.

"Well I fucked up!" I yell at this point. "I fucked up like every other time! So I really don't understand why you want to know how much of a screw-up I am, but if you just want to ruin my image more then here it is!"

"Melissa don't tear you-"

"Don't say that bull! I know what I did, and to be honest, I didn't even care. I screwed Liam over!" I shout. Why does he make me say this shit?! No one even knew... No one was supposed to know. The fuck does this boy have over me?


"That is all I am going to say."

"You're really good at that."

"What?" He sparked my attention.

"You're good at closing yourself off, you know that?"

"I can't help it." I huff.

"Just tell me."

"Our parents okay?" He nodded indicating me to continue.

"They were, how should I say it, acquaintances."

"So?" He wasn't really catching on.

"Well I couldn't have that.. I had changed and Liam hadn't. My mom didn't fucking notice but Liam's dad did. I needed to get him away as soon as possible... So I just decided to mess with Liam.."

He shakes his head, not really knowing what to say. I honestly didn't tell him half of what really happened, I'll just keep it simple.. For now.

We arrive at our homes and Niall just says he needs some time to think.


Fuck I'm getting nervous about this whole damn situation.

"Bye Niall." I whisper, not wanting to leave this whole date.

"Bye Melissa." He says coldly and I shudder. I don't know why he's taken it so harsh..

Niall's POV

The next morning I wake up and groggily get out of bed. Hell that wasn't the date I had planned out at all.. Why does everything Melissa and I do have to be screwed up by someone else? Why can't we go somewhere without her damn past affecting us?

I don't mind it though, I know it's a lot of shit, but for some reason I don't care. She went through a hell lot of shit, and I want to be the one who's there for her. She deserves that.

I left on a bit of a bad note yesterday, considering all the confusing information... I just needed some time to think, to go over everything that's happened. To be honest it's only been a month or so and there has been some drastic changes. I shake my head, not wanting to fill my mind with all these thoughts before going to school.

This weekend honestly seemed to last forever, and I'm actually quite happy to go back.

After I'm dressed and had a proper breakfast, I walk out to my car, hoping to see Melissa.

After all, I should explain why I was so distant, I don't want her shooting herself down.

I walk out, noticing I'm actually a bit late and decide not to wait, considering Melissa usually heads out much earlier.

I jump in the car, and drive to school.

The first few hours go by slowly, I don't have Melissa in nearly any of my classes so there's nothing interesting here. I get called out a few times for day-dreaming and I just sigh, wondering if Melissa took my attitude in the wrong way.

I walk out as the lunch bell rings and I see Liam and Melissa out in the hallway talking.

Or rather disputing. I don't see Melissa having normal discussions with most people.

"David!?" Melissa yells stunned.

"I just want to know." Liam tries to keep his cool but he looses it.

"I want a reason!" Liam yells.

"You can't have it! It's my life!" She says back. I don't know whether to step in, but luckily the fight ends as I near the two of them.

"Melissa?" I say going up to her.

"Oh." She quietly comments and I wrap my arm around her waist. She isn't used to this, but I know it comforts her.

"What's wrong?" I whisper, ducking my head closer to hers, bringing my lips to her neck. She just sighs.

"Can we change the subject?" She asks calmly and I'd rather see her smile than flustered.

"Sure." I smile as I see her let out a sigh of relief and kiss me softly on the lips.

I hope she'll sooner or later elaborate more on this topic.

We go to the cafeteria and I hope to avoid everyone. I don't want to see Liam, Zayn, Louis, Demi, Jamie, Harry, no one.

The lunch goes pretty smoothly.

I guess Melissa knows how to get around without being noticed too much. Thank god. Because I think if we were to see anyone we'd both explode.

School ends and I remember we have music class tomorrow.

"I can't believe it." She says looking up and I'm reminded that some of my photos have made the school's wall.

I just chuckle, not sure if she liked them or not.

"Do you like them?" I say.

"They're... They're actually pretty great." She states and I let out a sigh of relief. She just laughs at my nervous attitude.

"Can you come over?" She asks and I feel like crap telling her I can't. I had to do some crap with my mom about my documents and I couldn't stay with her..

"No, I can't.. I'm sorry, it's just I have some papers to sign." I say quietly. I know she needs someone in this moment and it kills me knowing I'll be booked all day.

"It's fine." She says, looking down at her hands, and I lift her chin up to look at me. It's moments like these that I see the real Melissa.

She looks so innocent. She looks so different.

She just looks like the real her.

I kiss her softly on the lips.

"I love you." I whisper.

"I love you too." She says, looking off, blushing. I just laugh. She still wasn't used to all this. I pull her closer to me and she lets out a small laugh.

I wish she could be like this more often...


I wake up, on time, and get ready. I run out quickly so I can be sure to catch Melissa on her way out.

"You coming to music club today?"

"Yeah." She says neutrally. I take her by surprise and wrap my arms around her, swinging her around.

"Niall!" She yells laughing.

"I thought you needed some cheering up." I smile and she whacks my arm, later pulling me in for a kiss.

"Better not be late." She winks and pulls in the passenger seat and I have the urge to just skip it all and stay with her the whole day.


I try to look for her during our cafeteria break but she is no where to be found. Instead I just see Liam and Jamie and I can't stop my curiosity from taking over my senses. I go over to Liam to find out what happened.

"We need to talk." I say urgently, pulling him away from his conversation and into somewhere more private.

"If you want to talk you need to tell me a hell lot of shit first." He barks.

"What happened between you two?" I ask, ignoring his rude reply.

"She fucking flipped on me, that's what! I know it's because of David and she won't tell me anything more!"

"What do you know about David??" I ask curious.

"That they dated, and they were incredibly serious and well, then something happened."

"Well, after what David's friends did I wouldn't doubt it." I say to myself.

"Those bastards?" He asks.

How much did he know?

"They.." I choke up.

"What did they do to her?!" He grabs me by the shoulders yelling.

"The fuck?!" I shout, pushing him off.

"What did they do!?"

"They rape-" I start not finishing it.

His mouth drops open and I notice what I just fucking said..

Holy shit.

"They-The... They did that to.." He chokes up for a second.

"Don't you dare say anything!" I shout.


"Don't you dare! I swear to god Liam, don't even fucking try." I growl. He's still speechless and I walk out the room we were occupying.


Melissa's POV

"Hey!" Jamie cheers and I sigh, god, why do I have to participate in this shit class? More over, I thought the teacher wouldn't fuck with me, but instead she insists I sing each damn class.

"What have you prepared?" She asks.

"Uh.. Teenage Dream.." I say honestly embarrassed by that fucking song.

"Oh my god! I love that song!" Of course she does...

"I know how to play that on the piano! Do you want me to accompany you?" She begs and I sigh, agreeing.

"Well hello there girls!" The teacher says excitedly and I know she's going to pick on me first.

"Why don't you start us off Melissa?" She grins. Fucking hell. Where is Niall anyway?

As soon as Jamie puts her fingers on the piano, the door opens and Niall walks in. He looks really unsettled. I try to smile at him but he avoids eye contact.


"Whenever you're ready sweetie." Does she really think that calling me stupid pet names will get on my good side?

Niall finally looks at me for a second and I nod to Jamie to start playing.

"You think I'm pretty

Without any makeup on

You think I'm funny

When I tell the punchline wrong

I know you get me

So I let my walls come down, down." I sing, looking at Niall. He helps me concentrate and actually find this boring ass class interesting. He rubs his neck and I know he's nervous. He lets out a small smile. I wonder what's gotten into him?

"Before you met me

I was alright but things

Were kinda heavy" He looked at me more intensively and I continue singing to him. I think Niall and I used this class to communicate. To be honest, I've told him so much throughout this crap class.

"You brought me to life

Now every February

You'll be my Valentine, Valentine

Let's go all the way tonight

No regrets, just love

We can dance, until we die

You and I, will be young forever" I smile and he lets out a small laugh. I don't even give a fuck about the stares that people give me or that stupid smug smile on Jamie's face.

"You make me feel

Like I'm livin' a

Teenage dream

The way you turn me on

I can't sleep

Let's run away and

Don't ever look back,

Don't ever look back" I wish I could though, I wish I could get any with Niall. Away from my fucking past.

"We drove to Cali

And got drunk on the beach

Got a motel and

Built a fort out of sheets

I finally found you

My missing puzzle piece

I'm complete

Let's go all the way tonight

No regrets, just love

We can dance, until we die

You and I, will be young forever"


You make me feel

Like I'm livin' a

Teenage dream

The way you turn me on

I can't sleep

Let's run away and

Don't ever look back,

Don't ever look back


My heart stops

When you look at me

Just one touch

Now baby I believe

This is real

So take a chance and

Don't ever look back,

Don't ever look back

Be your teenage dream tonight

(Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight)" I wish that for once I could have this. The thing most teenagers have, without all the worries. Without all the pain.

Class is over and I scurry out of the classroom. I'd love to wait up for Niall but I don't want to hear Jamie's squeals so I just wait for him by his car.

He smiles when he sees me out and I wonder if he went out looking for me. Knowing Niall, he probably looked around the classroom for a few minutes searching.

"Hey." I smile pulling him closer. I see he has a nervous expression and I'm really curious as to why.

I haven't seen him all day and the second I do, he's avoiding my stares and not talking...

"What happened?" I ask.

"Nothing..." He lies. It wasn't hard to tell when Niall was lying. He wasn't particularly the best at it.

"Niall." I push, getting impatient.

"I talked to Liam." He blurts and I drop my hands from his chest.

"What!?" I say shocked.

"Can't you stay out of that?!" I say, raising my voice. I pull on my hair, pacing around. I'm trying to regain my temper, I'm really hoping to anyway.

"What did you say?"

"He knew about David..." My expression falls and I walk over to Niall.

"Did you talk to him about that!?" I'm starting to get really pissed.

"Niall what did you tell him about David?" I growl.

"He wanted to know-"

"Niall!" I'm speechless. I put my hand out in front of me, silencing him.

How could he?!

I fucking trusted Niall!!

This is what happens when you put faith in people! They just screw you over!

"Don't tell me you told him-" I start but by the look on his face he did.

"You were best friends Meliss-"

"That doesn't give you the fucking right to meddle in my goddamn life!" I shout.

"I didn't mean to do it okay?! It just came out! I just wanted to help you!

I swear Melissa I love you and I want to see you get through this."

"You love me?!" I laugh.

"Please Niall, fuck off! If you really loved me then you wouldn't have said that shit.. I knew it."


"I knew I shouldn't be too hasty with that fucking phrase. 'I love you.' God I'm such an idiot!"

"Melissa don't. I swear I love you and I know you do too."

"Please don't tell me what I fucking love and what I don't."

"Melissa please hear me out."

"Piss off Niall!" I say storming off. He grabs me by the arm and I explode, slapping him.

"We're through." I say through gritted teeth.
