Sunday passed pretty quickly and before I knew it I was waking up Monday morning not wanting to go to school at all. The thought of seeing Niall made me wanna throw-up. I got dressed and went downstairs. I ate some cereal and left for school.
"Hey Mary, wait up!," a girl named Sandy, who lives in my neighborhood ran from behind me.
"Oh hey, Sandy," I said faking a smile.
"So, what's up?," she asked.
Then a guy on a motorcycle pulled up right in front of us. He took his helmet off, and right away, by the blond hair, I knew who it was.
"Watch were you going, Niall Horan," Sandy said.
"What? Oh yeah sorry...um Mary can I take you to school?," he asked looking at me.
"I AM already walking with someone, so no, and goodbye," I said taking Sandy's hand and walking right past him.
"Mary will you ever let me explain?," he said from behind me.
"I don't need explanation, your just an...an....asshole!," I turned around yelling.
"Mary please, I know I can change. Give me another chance...," he pleaded.
"No Niall.....there was never a first chance....and there won't be another," I said.
"Mary...I..I..," he started saying.
"Save your breath Horan! And goodbye," I said walking again.
"Mary what's going on between you and him?," Sandy asked.
"Long story, I really don't want to talk about it," I said sighing.
"Oh okay, I understand," she said.
I watched as she walked away.
"I love you...," I whispered, tears foaming my eyes.
She hates me that's for sure.
I got back on my motorcycle and drove of the opposite direction of the school. I wouldn't be able to sit through class with Mary in the same room. Not today, not tomorrow....maybe not even for a long time.
I saw a semi truck coming my way, before I could do anything, everything went black...
I slumped in my chair trying to figure out the Math problem, when I heard Harry's phone buzzing.
"Harry no cell-phones in class," the teacher said, snatching it away from him, as he took it out.
I looked over at him, he seemed pretty frightened. I wonder what's happening, and where was Niall anyway? It's not that I care, but I was just wondering....
~ half an hour later ~
"So, how are you Mary?," Calum asked me as we walked into the lunch room.
"Good, I guess," I answered, "You didn't go to the party?"
"No, I didn't feel like it," he said.
"I should of not gone either," I said. He gave me a sad look.
"I'm sorry for what happened, you know, with you and Niall," he said.
"Michael told you?," I asked.
"Yeah. We're pretty close, me, Michael, Luke, and Ashton....so if one of us know's something about someone or something, then all of us do," he said.
"Oh, just don't tell anyone else please, I really don't want to think or talk about it," I said.
"I understand. Hey guys!," Calum said as we approached our lunch table.
"Hey Calum, hey Mary," the guys greeted us.
I sat down next to Michael. He put his hand over mine under the table and lightly squeezed it. I looked up to him to see him smiling. I smiled back, he was a such good friend.
When I got my phone back, I quickly dialed the number that called me. It was Niall that did and he hasn't talked to me ever since the party, and now he was calling me so I was really surprised.
"Hello?," a lady's voice said.
"Um hi, is Niall there?," I asked. Who is this girl?
"Oh, are you a close friend of Niall?," she asked.
"Yes I am. Can I talk with him?," I asked.
"I afraid not. He's been in a motorcycle accident and he's in critical condition," she explained.
I stopped dead in my tracks.
"Wh-what?," I said shocked.
"Yes, I'm a nurse here in the hospital and Niall's phone was given to me to call people in his contacts to let them know...somehow the phone was saved during the crash," she said.
"I'll be there as fast as I can...what hospital is this?," I asked. She gave me the information and I quickly got into my car and drove away from the school.
My best friend is in the hospital....this can't be happening!!
~ 20 minutes later ~
"Hi, I'm Harry Styles. A friend of Niall Horan...he was in a motorcycle accident," I said walking into the hospital.
"Oh, yes Niall Horan," the front desk nurse said, looking into her computer, "Room 154, Floor 2," she said.
"Thank you," I said and ran to the elevator.
As I reached his room, I took a deep breath and walked in to see the doctor leaning over Niall.
"Oh, Hello," the doctor said smiling.
"Hi, I'm Harry, Niall's friend," I said and shook the doctors hand.
"It's good that you showed up. Niall is in a coma now. I'm not really sure when he'll wake up. He broke his leg in the crash, he also got a scar on his forehead as you can see, that's from the glass that broke during the crash," the doctor explained.
"What happened? I mean, what was the crash? Did he get hit by some car?," I asked.
"Yes. He got hit by a semi truck. The driver was drunk," the doc said.
"Don't take it to seriously, boy, he's going to be alright," the doctor said, making a fake smile.
"I hope so. He's a really good friend of mine," I said and sat down on the chair next to Niall's bed.
"Well I'll be on my way," the doctor said going towards the door, "Oh right! I almost forgot! Here is Niall's phone that somehow wasn't damaged during the crash," he said handing me the small object.
I took it.
"Well, see you later," he said and left.
I went through Niall's messages.
~ Today ~
"Michael, please let me talk with Mary!" -Sent 5:30a.m.
"Mary was right I am like Harry....but I KNOW I can change for the better. I need someone to change me and I feel that Mary's the one to do that.......I.Love.Her!" -Sent 7:00a.m.
7:00 a.m.!!! That's when Niall left our house, on his motorcycle......
Gosh, Niall does love Mary.....maybe I should tell her...about what happened??
Maybe I could win Mary back for Niall, who's character influenced by me, made her walk away from him........
I feel like this is all my fault.....I need to change too....I need to become a better person.
I thought about the last 5 years.....
8th through 10th grade: I was in a gang...they thought me to use drugs, get drunk...only bad things....why did I listen to them??
~ Flashback ~
"Aw, Harry are you scared?? C'mon it's only a little drug, but it opens your eyes and lets you see the world in a different way!," Charlie said.
"I don't really want to. My mom told me not to use these," I said, I was 14-year-old then.
"Awww, did you hear that guys!!?? He's scared to use them, cuz his mommy said not to use drugs! HAHAHAHAHA! Your such a mommy's-boy Harry," he said.
I grew mad. I took the whole dose of the white powder, to show him I ain't a mama's-boy.
He looked a me with wide-eyes.
"There how do you feel Harry??," he asked.
" I feel different," I admitted.
~ Flashback #2 ~
(Here I was 15-years-old)
"Okay as a test to see if you'll fit in our gang, you have to go into that store, take those beer bottles, and run outside, until you reach that sign over there, the yellow one, and turn right, and
I'll meet you there," Charlie said. I was tired of this, he's given me so many tests already!
But I did as he said. I was to drunk to care, and on some drugs also.
I walked in and looked around, like if I was shopping and just looking around.
As the counter guy turned around, I snatched the beer bottles and ran out. Then the alarm turned on.
"HEY BOY!!! COME BACK HERE!!," the counter guy yelled after me.
I ran to the place were Charlie told me to run to. His car was there.
"Hop in man!," he said. And I jumped in and we gassed away.
"Well boy, your pretty good! I think we can fully accept you in the gang! Your not a mama's-boy after all!," Charlie said smiling at me.
I was pretty happy at what he said about me.
~ Flashback # 3 ~
( After Charlie and his gang got arrested, my mom was talking to me...a 16-year-old now)
"Harry, I can't believe you actually lied to me!! You said you were having a sleep-over at Louis's house, but you were out hanging out with a gang OLDER then you, using drugs, getting drunk, smoking.....Harry no wonder you've been acting sort of weird lately! What if the police said no and they took you to jail!," my mother was in tears.
I hated to see the way she felt about me.
I walked up to her and gave her a hug.
"I love you mom. I'm sorry that I lied to you, I promise I'll change," I said.
She held me close.
"My baby, please never do does bad things you did through these 3 years!," she said.
~ Flashbacks Over ~
I looked at myself in the mirror. Charlie and his gang also taught me how to pick-up girls and use them up. I still remembered how scared I actually was....I never hurt girls like I did since then...a different girl every night.....no wonder I can't find the perfect girl. I forgot how to respect girls....every time I see a girl I think of one thing.....sex.
Why was I thinking like this?? Why was Charlie's gang influence on me so bad?? I know I stopped using drugs and quite smoking, which Charlie also taught me to use, but I still get drunk and try different girls every night....and I don't even know what I'm doing with the girl cause I'm always drunk and never remember what happened, until I wake up in the morning and I see a girl by my side crying.
And now I had influenced my good friend Niall.
And now he can't have the girl of his dreams....because he acted like me....a total ass.
I promised my mom I'll change and now as a 18-year-old in 12th grade, I think I might actually do that. I see my mistakes now.....and I feel horrible about it.
"I'll get Mary back for you bro," I said to him.
I wonder if he could hear me.....
