It has been three days since Niall and the band came over. I knew I was being an idiot for trusting him. I was depressed all over again. I had therapy on Saturdays and Sundays, so I could talk to someone about my terrible past and help me from hurting myself again. I needed help and it was working until last Saturday. Their music was no longer played in my car or were my favorite band. I had switched from One Direction to my second favorite band, We The Kings. I just wanted all this pain to stop.
I shook my head and slapped my cheeks to get myself back into reality. I had gotten my new schedule and I had work on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. I never worked on Monday or the weekend. Mike knew why didn't work on weekends and I had class all day on Mondays, so we compromised. I worked the later shifts Tuesday though Friday so I could still go to class and Mike got to spend more time with his "daughter" and make sure I was OK. Therapy helped but Mike always knew how to make me happy. I grabbed my order book and pen and went to the floor to serve customers. I looked at the tables and most of the were empty except for a few. I saw a man with a snap back on, he was looking over the menu so I walked over and said-
"Hi my name is Maya and I'll be serving you this evening. Is there anything I can get you?"
"Can I get a cup of tea and a piece of cherry pie please?" He said. He had a thick Irish accent but I payed no attention to it. I said OK and walked to place the order. I could feel someone's eyes on me so I turned around only to see the man with the snap back quickly turn his head. We he looking at me? He's probably some fucking creep trying to look up some skirts. Good thing I was wearing my jeans today and not my leggings. I placed his order and stood behind the counter to fix my ribbon. My mom gave me this ribbon. It was her mothers and now it's mine, I was rarely seen without it. I missed my mom so much at times. I felt like I was going to cry when I heard a ding and a yell-
"Order up Maya. Table 2." Charlie said from behind the counter which led to the kitchen.
"Thanks Char!" I yelled back. I picked up the pie and the tea and walked to the man with the hat. I places the dishes on his table and asked -
"Do you need anything else sir?"
"Chance to make up for what I did." He said.
"What? I don't understand." I said confused.
"Maya I want a chance to make up for what I did to you on Saturday." He begged.
I knew this voice. It was the voice of the man in my dreams. I watched him take off his hat and ruffle his hair. He looked so handsome. I could feel my face heat up and I began to walk away, only to have him grab my hand. His hands were softer then I thought. I wanted to sty there forever and just let him hold my hand, but I pulled it away and said-
"Niall I don't have time for this I have work. You know that some people aren't loaded with money." I said to him.
"Please Maya, I just need 5 minutes to explain, after that if you still want to talk then I'll stay, but if you don't I'll leave and never bother you again. Please, let me explain." He pleaded.
I looked into his bright blue eyes and sighed.
"I can't right now. I got off of work in half an hour, I'll talk to you then. I promise." God I'm such a fucking baby, why did I need to cry right now. Before he could respond I stalked off into the kitchen so he couldn't see me cry.
Once safe in the back I let my tears lose. They were spilling out of my eyes like a waterfall. I thought I had forgotten how to cry, but this weekend reminded me how to. I have to get back to work I thought, but I couldn't get myself to stop crying. I didn't want anyone to worry so I made my way to the bathroom. I walked up to the double doors and slowly trudged my way to the bathroom. Once there I locked my self in a stall and put the toilet seat down and sat on it. I think I cried for a good 20 minutes. I was going to get in trouble for this. I had to make sure I worked longer to night so I wouldn't get fired. I washed my face, blew my nose and went back to work.
30 minutes went by very fast when your trying to avoid someone you have to talk to. I told Mike why I had to work a little longer and he didn't mind at all. I finished my last table and punched out of work. The cafe was open until 12 am, and it was 11:45 and the cafe was almost empty. I stood at the kitchen door for a few seconds before opening it. Niall was still there even though and hour had gone by. He had been ordering tea and pie the entire time. He looked sad but I didn't want to let him know that I cared, so I went to his booth and sat down. He looked up and his eyes were red and puffy like he had been crying. My heart broke a little when I saw that.
"You have 5 minutes to explain, now start."
"Maya I swear I didn't mean for any of that to happen. As soon a you left the lads just went crazy, I was to shocked by what they were doing to stop them. Just as I was about to Liam called us to the kitchen. I wanted them to stop, I swear, I wanted you to trust me. Then Liam started to read you paper and I got so caught up in it. It was beautiful, I wanted him to keep reading because it put me in a trances. I have to admit I wanted to know who you were writing about but Liam won't tell me. I just need you to know that I am so very sorry about what happened and I wanted to apologize." He said
"I want to believe you, I really do, but because of my past, trusting people is very hard for me. I knew that giving you my address was a huge mistake. I just wish that I could love you from the sidelines again and not worry about what you might think.....I mean like... No... Never mind." I said cheeks a flare.I was so embarrassed and felt so stupid. I just told I the guy I had have the biggest crush on I loved him.
I got up and ran to the kitchen. My face was bright red. I was about to grab my things and go when my best friend Sarah walked into the cafe and yelled-
"Maya you slut get out here, I need a ride home!" She yelled. We have been best friends forever. She had been one of the two people who had followed me to London and knew about my past. She was also the one who got me hooked on One Direction. I couldn't help but smile at her comment but then frown when I remember that Niall was still out on the main floor. If she saw him she would go fucking crazy. I had to think quickly, I had to get her to come into the kitchen without noticing Niall. She knew I had a thing for Niall but her crush was on Zayn Malik. I was about to tell her to come to the kitchen when I heard a scream and an OMG. Fuck Sarah must have seen Niall. I walked out the doors to see Sarah fangirling over Niall. She looked over at me and said the four words that may have ruined my life.
"She loves you, ya'know?" Everything went black from there.
