5. Chapter Five
The next morning, I didn’t realize I fell asleep until there was a knock at my door, making me jump awake. I get up, opening the door. “Ready to go?” Marcel asks and I just look confused. “What?” I ask and he smiles. “Home, it’s break; apparently you hit your head or something.” He says, laughing. “I am so happy its break.” I say, laughing and he nods. I start packing a few bags since I will be gone for a week and then we go out to the parking lot and I open the back door and Niall is sitting there, staring out the window. “Just set it next to him.” Marcel says and I do and close the door and get in the passenger seat and click on my seat belt. “We should be there in no time.” He says and I nod.
About 8 hours later we arrive into our town. “Get up.” Marcel shakes me awake and I look out the window and start recognizing old buildings. I pick my head up off of the window and then yawn. Marcel pulls up to his house and gets out and so do I. I walk up to the door with Marcel and Niall and Marcel throws open the door. “I’m home!” He announces and he lets Niall and me in and then closes the door behind me. “Hi Marcie!” I hear Zayn say and Marcel rolls his eyes. We all walk into the living room and the three boys’ eyes go wide. “Niall?” They ask and then they look at me. “Hi Nora,” they say and I nod. Marcel walks in and everyone starts whistling. His arms have gotten bigger, you can see the veins, he lost the glasses and his hair isn’t slicked back anymore, he looks a lot like Harry. “Hey boys,” Marcel says, his voice has also gotten deeper, he wears skinny jeans and band t-shirts, the only difference between him and Harry, besides Marcel not having tattoos. “Damn.” Louis says and Marcel walks over to the couch and plops down. “Nora, you are looking well.” Zayn says and I nod. I glance at Niall next to me and he is just staring at all of them. “Niall, mate, how have you been?” Harry asks and I bump shoulders with him and he looks at me. “Fine,” he says and I snort. “What?” Niall asks and I roll my eyes. “Fine? You have been drinking and smoking, no progress has been made.” I say, crossing my arms. “Maybe not for you but for me there has.” He says and I roll my eyes. “Have you been doing drugs?” I ask and he nods his head slowly. “Exactly, don’t lie to them.” I say and he rolls his eyes. I push him over to them and he stumbles over there, sitting next to Marcel. “Harry, you needed to talk to Nora?” Marcel asks and I look at him and he gets up and walks over and grabs my hand. He pulls me outside and I look up at him. “I just wanted to tell you that I am sorry for that night and I have actually made you something.” He says but I shake my head. “I accept your apology; I just don’t think I can take anything from you.” I say and he sighs. “Please, I made it and I want you to have it.” He says and I sigh. He pulls a necklace out of his pocket and holds it up to me. ‘Harry is a horrible person’, I laugh and he smiles. “I still feel bad about it, you weren’t ready and I shouldn’t have raped you.” He says and I smile and hug him. I take the necklace and he puts it on and then we go inside. I could never forget that day but I am trying my best. We all sit around talking until I tell Marcel that I should talk to Miles. “See you guys later, Niall, stay here.” Marcel says and he nods. We go out to his car and make my way to my old house.
