Two weeks have gone passed with Niall and I barely talking. Every afternoon we sit and talk about nothing. I haven't learnt any of the 20 things he has written down for the end exam because he won't talk. We talk about classes and what we are learning, ask how are friends are, then just before he leaves I ask how he is. Every time, every single day I get the same response "I'll get there." as he looks at me with eyes that show the dam wall in there is about to break and the tears will soon fall. Then before I can reply he stands and walks away leaving me sitting alone. Every afternoon I sit at this pond for an hour after he leaves just looking. Maybe if I keep looking I'll find something good, but right now everything just hurts. This place only two weeks ago I thought was beautiful has turned into a place I hate. Every afternoon I learn to hate it more and more because Niall still won't talk.
I slowly pull myself from the ground and walk up to the dorms. My feet scrape the grass as I drag my body towards the place where I can shut out the world. Bella has gotten used to me arriving back at the dorm more and more defeated every day. I want to pull myself out of this rut for her but I just can't. I tried to convince myself that I needed to pull myself together for my sake, because I knew Emma was winning. I could sense every time she saw me, an evil smile would crawl onto her face because she knew she had done it. She had ruined me just like she thought I ruined her, and the best part was that Niall didn't even know the story and she knew that.
"Kate! Kate stop!" I voiced yelled behind me.
"What do you want Zayn?" I asked turned around. I had grown all too familiar with the voices of Niall's four friends, also known as my groups partners.
"I just wanted to see how you are, but I'm guessing your not any better."
"What do you think Zayn? Niall still won't talk to me and he doesn't even know that story. He just went with what others said and judged me. You know that really hurts. To know that people can that easily take in rumours. Yeah, maybe its not a rumour, but he didn't even listen to what happened. And that Zayn, that is what hurts." I feel a single tear slowly rolling down my cheek only to be stopped with Zayn's thumb
"I'm so sorry Kate, you know that right. He should listen to you, your story should be the only one he bases his opinion on. For that what he did was wrong. But have you really tried to talk to him?" I open my mouth to defend myself but quickly close it to properly think about this. That first day I yelled after him but didn't chase him to defend myself and every afternoon since I have barely bought it up, and the times I did when he told me to stop I did.
"Kate, if this is really hurting you, fix it." Zayn quickly kissed me on the check, gave me a small smile and then left. I stood there shocked for what felt like hours but was only minutes.
"What took you so long." Bella asks as soon as the door opens.
"I ran into Zayn."
"And we talked." I replied sighing and I slumped onto the lounge.
"Funny that because Louis and I were talking this afternoon and we decided you needed to tell Niall."
"You didn't tell him the story did you?" I asked snapping around to face her on the other side of the lounge.
"Of course not, but he wants this fixed. He never saw Niall so happy and honestly I didn't see you that happy ever."
"But Bell, what happens if he hates me even more?" I asked burying my face in a pillow.
"Well at least you tried. Look Kate, next week you have to hand in the monthly report. What are you going to say 'We have barely been speaking as we had a fight and the year looks rather unfortunate'. The answer is no! Next week you will be handing in one saying you had a rough patch but you got through it and he is a great partner and friend." I sat there just looking at Bella as every word she said hit me with more and more truth of this situation. I needed to fix this, not only for Niall and I but for school.
Hey guys sooo this is kinda a filler but I feel like everything I've been writing is shit. Like its either to short or not good enough so im sorry. This is kinda chapter to show you that the boys are all friends with Kate soooo well anything can happen! So good luck figuring out how its gonna go! do your thing to help out the story love tay xx
