It’s been four years since I have been out of high school; I have driven myself into books, keeping myself busy, and my mind off of certain things. “I can’t believe it’s already exam time.” Marcel exclaims after meeting me in the foyer. “Almost time for break.” I say, smiling. “Yeah, my mum wants me to come home, do you want to come?” He asks and I shrug. “Come on, Miles misses you, you know he wants you to meet his daughter.” He says and I sigh. “Alright,” I say and he smiles. “Harry actually wants to talk to you too.” He says and I nod. “Ok, come on.” I say and we walk to class.
Marcel receives a call while we are going to our next class. “Hello?” He asks and I go ahead of him. I get a drink and turn and Marcel’s eyes are wide and he is staring at me. I walk up to him. “What?” I ask but he shakes his head. “Bye.” He says, hanging up. “What’s going on?” I ask but he shakes his head. “It’s not important, come on.” He says, ushering me to class.
It is lunch so I take Marcel out to eat. “Table for two,” I say to the lady behind the desk. We are taken to our booth and I sit down and Marcel sits across from me. “So what was the phone call about earlier?” I ask after we have ordered. “Oh, nothing,” he says and I roll my eyes. “Your eyes were as wide as the dinner plates we are about to be served now seriously what was it about?” I ask and he sighs. “After you left for college, Niall has been doing some bad things, drugs, drinking, brutally beating people, well he just got into a bar fight and has to go to jail.” He explains and I nod. Normally I would be freaking out but he is not my responsibility anymore. “We just thought since you can deal with people in trouble, that you could possibly help him so that he won’t go to jail.” He says and I almost spit my water all over him. “What?!” I exclaim and he sighs. “Harry is worried about him, so am I.” He says biting his lip and our food is sent out to us. Our plates are set in front of us and I suddenly lose my appetite. “So, I have no choice?” I ask and he nods. “Come on, I know you hate him but the only reason he is acting this way is because of you.” He says and I sigh. “How long is he going to be here?” I ask and he shrugs. “As long as it takes, I have to share a room with him, so that should be the least of your worries.” He says and I roll my eyes. “When is he getting here?” I ask and he checks his phone. “He should be in the main building right now.” He says and I nod. I slowly eat the salty fries that taste stale to me. I throw down my fry and just lay my head on the table. “This is not going to be good.” I say and he nods.
After lunch, we make our way back to the main building with twenty minutes to spare. We go sit at one of the stone benches and I lay my head on the table. “What’s wrong?” He asks and I shrug. “My stomach is churning and my thoughts are jumbled, Marcel, my life was doing so fine without him and now he comes crawling back into my life.” I complain and he sighs. “More like stumbling.” He mumbles and I turn around and a man with blonde hair that is so greasy, clinging to his face, a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and a beer bottle in one hand is stumbling toward us. “Hey Marcie!” Niall slurs as he approaches us. The smell of alcohol and cigarettes clinging to his clothes and breath. “Nora.” He says and I look up at him. “Niall,” I say, standing up. “Nora.” Marcel breathes and I plop back down and Niall sits next to me. “I need to go, after hours, my room, keep quiet; I don’t need the headmistress to yell at me.” I say, getting up and walking off.
