"...I woke up and I was on the slide. I'm so sorry Niall. He said we didn't even so much as high five but I can't remember. I know it's a lot to hear on the phone but....can you come get me. I don't know my way home!" I pleaded to Niall over the phone. I felt worthless. Pathetic. Broken.

"Hallie. You were doing so well. I. Why wouldn't you come to me?" He asked. Anger and hurt stung my ears.

"I was embarrassed. It's okay. I'll walk. Or call...oh. Yeah. Bye," I said hanging up before I was actually finished.When I got home Aunt Alice was sitting in the dining room sobbing.

"Aunt Al-" she cut me off. Her voice sharper than glass.

"Your mother has made mistakes she hasn't been the best at times. But for the past years that she had come back she has worked her ass off giving all her energy and effort into YOUR life because you lost your best friend. You have the right to be sad but to act out like this and speak to you MOTHER as you did last night is not okay. Your actions are as if you have no support and love and care. You are selfish, Hallie, just selfish." She had tears in her eyes and a look of pain hurt and desperation washed her face over and over.

"I'm sor-"

"She is in the hospital. She slit her wrists. I'm going to the states to take care of her. My boyfriend and his son will be staying here with you because I can't trust you. " just as that she walked out. She took her luggage and got into a car. A tall young boy got out and helped her. He looked familiar. JAMES! James Duncan. My best friend.

"JAMES DUNCANT!" I yelled as I ran out the door luging into his arms as we embraced and twirled.

"HELLI!" He yelled back. He placed me on the ground.

"What the hell are you doing in Ireland!?" I asked all smiles.

"What are you doing in Ireland!?" He asked. His hair was longer than I remembered and it seemed lighter. His eyes the same majestic blue.

"I'm clean...well I'm here so I am get and stay clean." The mood changed. It suddenly felt awkward.

"That's the best news I've heard in a long time. I miss you so much and I just....stay clean." He said bringing his suit case inside. When I started to go down hill me and Jamie had just started dating. We fell in love. But I fell in love with drugs and alcohol. It wasn't fair. So. I left.

"Jamie...I met someone. He lives across the street. He's mad now because I had an accident last night. But id love for you to meet him." His eyes fell sad. My heard throbbed. This boy is the love of my life.

"Okay. Tonight. I'll cook dinner. I'm going to shower first you guys talk it out. " he hugged me tight and went to his room. I walked across the street and knocked on his door. I heard shuffling inside and then a beautiful blonde boy answered.

"Niall. Hey. Can we talk?" I asked folding my hands together and looking down at the ground. I was trying so hard not to make eye contact with him.

"Yeah. Come here." He came out and sat on the steps. At first we were silent. But then I broke the silence.

"Niall. I should've told you but I didn't. I should've come to you for comfort but I didn't. I should've waited and cooled down but I didn't and I can't change that. And I do feel bad and I am sorry but I know that doesn't fix it. So. I'm just going to say this. I'm trying to get clean. It's hard. You knew this when you kissed me, this is new to me. I haven't had a relationship since, well...a long time. At least not a clean one. But for this to work you have to trust me and hang on. Don't give up. We just started. " he looked up. His eyes were bloodshot.

"I was up all night ,Hal. With YOUR aunt. I'm trying. This is hard for me too. But I'm trying. " he grabbed my hand and squeezed it. "Okay?" He said kissing my forehead so softly.

"Okay!" I said happily! " My old friend James Duncan is going to be staying with his dad at my aunts to keep an eye on me. He's love to meet you. He's cooking dinner tonight. Come?" I asked almost hoping he'd say no.

"Yeah. Sure! It'll be fun. I'm going to wash up. I'll see you later!" He kissed my forehead and ran inside.

"By the way. He's also my ex boyfriend. We were in love. And I ruined it." I whispered to myself as he shut the door. I walked back to my house and went to my bedroom before I could be seen. I sat on my bed and opened my laptop. I pulled up my old Facebook page. I looked at our relationshipy pictures. Tears fell lightly onto my cheeks. We broke up. We never talked about it it just happened. I thought that I wasn't in love with him anymore but, he's here and he's James and he's kind. He's James Duncan. He's the star basketball player. He's the class clown. He's the kind hearted best friend. He's. He's James Duncan. I had James Duncan. I let James Duncan go. I broke James Duncan.

I heard a faint knock on my door. "Come in" I yelled. Jamie walked in and saw me crying.

"Did it go bad?" He said softly. Dropping his shoulders to show sympathy.

"James. Did I brake you? Did I hurt you?" I said crying softly.

"When you-" I nodded "well. To be honest yes. I was broken and crushed and hurt. You chose Jack Daniels and Mary Jane over me. It was hard. And I don't know if I'm whole again." My heart fell into my stomach.

"James." I said getting up and hugging him tight. "I'm so sorry. I loved you. I swear on everything I have. I loved you. You meant the world to me but I got so caught up in my own mess I couldn't trust myself. I didn't think I deserved to be happy. I'm so. So. Sorry. " I let go. He quickly grabbed me and hugged me tight.

"It's okay. It's not. But. I forgive you. Stop crying. It's okay. " he let go and I sat back on my bed. I wiped my eyes. And he turned and left.
