18. Friends Again
I was crying for hours. Just when I thought I could forget about the past and let Niall in again; he does this to me. For once in my I thought I earn something. I thought that everything was going to be normal, but I guess that was asking for to much.
I had eventually cried myself to slept. The only good thing in my life right now is that I have a roof over my head.
It was one in the morning and I couldn't fall asleep. I had ruin my chances with Carter. It was my fault. All my fault, and I blamed it on Liam. If I had to make something right, it would be to apologize to him.
I got up out of bed and walked into Liam's room. He looked sound asleep, but I had to apologize now.
"Mate.", I whispered. I shook him a little bit and he started to slowly open his eyes. He sat up and looked at me. I looked at him and saw a bruise forming on jaw.
"Hey, look I'm sorry about punching you in the jaw and for blaming this all on you. It was my fault. I should have told Carter the truth from the start. Can you forgive me?", I asked. He looked at me like I was crazy.
"You woke me up at one in the morning just to say sorry?", he said. I was getting angry. I just apologized to him and that's all he had to say. Not, no problem mate or no it was my fault I was the one who blurred it out in front of her.
I tried to calm myself down, but I could let myself. "THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO SAY! I JUST SAID IT WAS FAULT WHEN CLEARLY IT WAS YOURS!" I was waiting for a response, but he just looked at me with a blank face. I slammed his door behind me and found all the boys sticking their heads out theirs.
"Hey Niall, is everything alright?", Louis asked.
"No.", I mumbled and went back to my room.
It's already two o'clock in the morning and I haven't moved from my bed. I didn't really plan to anytime soon. I have been thinking though. I been thinking if in the future Niall and I would ever be friends again, but it almost seems impossible.
I got up giving up on sleep and without thinking I slipped on my shoes and coat and decided to take a walk. When I got outside the cold air hit me and I pulled the coat tighter on me. I walked and walked and walked while thinking about what to do.
Suddenly, I looked up and saw that I was at Niall's house. A surprised look crossed my face I walked through five towns! I was about to ring the door bell when I realized that I didn't want to wake anyone else up.
I walked around the house till I saw an open window with a small Irish flag sticker on it. I knew it had to be Niall's room. I climbed up on the gutter pole and knocked on his window.
Suddenly Niall popped his head through and yawned. When he saw me his eyes went all big. "Carter!? What are you doing here?!", he exclaimed.
"Can you let me in and I will explain everything?"
"Sure. Come in!", he said and I climbed in carefully.
"I didn't want to wake up your roommate again so I came through the window.", I explained.
"But what are you doing here?! And by the way I have four roommates not just one."
"I was going for a walk cause I couldn't sleep and somehow ended up here."
"We have to be quiet because I don't want wake up Liam again he's still mad a me for punching him.", he said and my eyes got wide.
"You punched someone!?"
"Yeah I was mad at him for telling you that I recommended you."
"No, you are not ruining your friendship with this Liam-guy because of me! Where is he?!"
"The second door on the right.", he admitted and I walked out of the room and knocked on his door. He came out with no shirt on.
"Hey aren't you Carter? Why are you here?", he asked.
"No time for questions come with me!", I said and grabbed his wrist pulling him to Niall's room. When we got in Niall was sitting on his bed.
"What is he doing here?", Niall scoffed.
"He is here so you can apology to him.", I stated calmly.
"What I dont-", Niall started but I cut him off.
"Apologize!", I said and Niall huffed.
"Fine. Liam I am sorry for punching you and yelling at you.", Niall apologized.
"Good now Liam your turn.",I stated.
"But I didn't do-", Liam retorted.
"NOW!", I shouted.
"Ok, Niall I am sorry for breaking my promise to keep my mouth shut and telling Carter. But I still don't forgive you.", Liam said.
"Liam I really am sorry and to show it I will let you punch me like I punched you.", Niall said sincerely. Suddenly Liam walked up to Niall and punched him straight in the jaw.
Niall stubbled backwards but I caught him and balanced him.
"I really hope were friends again cause that fucking hurt.", Niall exclaimed.
"Yeah were friends again, mate.", Liam said and bro hugged Niall.
"Now that that's done I am very upset with you for punching him, so I guess I should leave, but I'm gonna use the front door this time.", I said and left.
