What would you do if your best friend got sent away. Two years ago Carolinn and Harry were super close. If she had a problem she would always run to him. Whenever she needed someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on she would go to Harry. He makes promises he can't keep it seems as if Harry was more important to her then she was to him. Everything she knew was ripped away from her. Harry comes back a completely different person it's like she's a stranger to him. How could you forget the most important person in your life. How could you go on acting as if they never existed. Join me on their journey......


2. first say of school

My life is so different now. Two years ago everything was easy I had everything figured out. Harry and I were gonna go to college together instead he got sent away. His parents couldn't control him anymore they said it was like they didn't even know their own son, they said they didn't raise him that way. Harry would go out everynight get drunk smoke pot and him and his so called friends would go around vandalizing things. By the time Harry was 16 he was in and out of juvy. When he turned 17 he got sent to jail and got his diploma there. I wouldn't say he was the brightest person but no matter what he was always there for me. I knew I could always count on him no matter what. If I needed anything I knew I could run to him. His parents thought it was a great idea to send him to boot camp thinking he would come out as a better kid. When Harry left me he promised he would write or call. They even got special privileges to use their cell phones on the weekends.

At first he used to use all his free time contacting me until one day it just stopped. I just figured he got himself in trouble and got his privileges taken away. I would sit by my phone waiting for his call. I would check the mail hoping I would get a letter from him but, I never did. Two years ago I lost someone that I thought cared about me. I wouldn't say life is all that bad I met a couple of people at my community college. As the days go by It gets easier and easier. I know I will never forget Harry like he forgot me, but I think I will be okay without him. I can atleast hope so. No matter what though whenever I'm feeling sad or alone I find myself in his backyard. His parents don't live here anymore but they kept the house as a vacation house. Robin got offered a job in the states they didn't hesitate to take it. I wouldn't say I was sad to see them go. I didn't care they took everything from me. Two years later I still have Harry's necklace around my neck. I don't have the heart to take it off.

The sun started to go down and I took that as my cue to head home. No matter how old I get I will never like the dark. I stand up from the swing and rub my butt, sitting on a swing for two hours straight is not the best idea. I make my way out of the back gate, good thing my house is right down the block. As I'm walking my phone starts ringing.


"Hey Linn am I picking you up for school in the morning?"

"If you would please."

My car broke down on me last week. I really need to get a new one but working at a book store isn't the best way of getting money.

"Sure thing, I'll be there around 8 be ready this time."

"I will Ni thank you." I state before hanging up.

By the time I hangup I reach my front door. I stick my key into the hole and unlock it. I don't live with my parents anymore. I felt once I turned 18 it was best for me to move out. My parents were barely home anyways, my dad is an architect and my mother's a clothing designer so they're knowing for traveling the world. I basically been on my own since I was 15. However I do not live alone I live with my bestie Dana she's great, I've knowing here since my sophmore year of highschool. When Harry left I got closer to her. She's been there for me through it all. There were nights where I would just cry and Dana would come in my room with a big tub of ice cream and a bunch of chick flicks. Speaking of her I wonder where she is. Maybe she's over at Liam's house, her boyfriend of a year. Liam is one of the sweetest guys I know. If I ever got into a relationship I would want one like theirs.

"Dana?" I call out.

"In here." She answers.

I should have known she would be in the kitchen. She loves to cook and let me tell you her food is amazing. If it wasn't for here I don't think I would survive, I'm the complete opposite I hate cooking. I know how to I just hate it. I make too much of a mess and I'm not a fan of cleaning either. I make my way over to her.

"What ya cooking?" I ask.

"Your fave spaghetti."

"Yum, I can't wait." I tell her.

"I bet you can't. Where were you by the way?"

"Where do you think?" I ask.

"Again that's three times this week, Linn ya gotta let him go. He did." She states while pouring in the pasta.

"I know but it's not that easy."

"You sure because he did it." She reminds me.

"Can we just drop it, I'm so tired of hearing about Harry, It's been two years, I'm sure I will get over it sooner or later." I say.

"I hope so." She whispers.

"I heard that."

Dana just chuckles I know she only wants what's best for me but I can't wrap my head around the fact of how it's so easy. How do you forget someone you grew up with. How can you just stop talking to someone like they weren't a big part of your life. I don't get it, I don't think I will ever get to be honest. I think about Harry everyday, somehow something always happens that reminds me of him. No matter how hard I fight to keep him out of my mind he always finds his way back in. I have no idea where he even is. I don't know if he is still in bootcamp or if he got out. I wonder what kind of person he is now or what he looks like. I wonder if he still has that curly hair. I wonder if he still laughs at his own jokes. I wonder if he's a better person now and if he is staying out of trouble.

Even though I hate cleaning I volunteer to do the dishes since Dana cooked. Besides theres not that many. I put my ipod on the ipod dock and blast Ed sheeran, his music is really good, and inspiring. I find myself humming his songs all the time. I dance like an idiot as I wash the dishes. I finish with the last plate, I dry it off and put it in the strainer.

"Do you need Niall to pick you up tomorrow?"

"No, Liam is coming to get me."

"Okay just checking, I'm gonna take a shower and get some sleep. Nite." I state as I make my way into my bedroom.

Each of us have our own bathroom. Which is a good thing, Dana is a bit of a girly girl that likes to put on makeup. Me, I'm fine with sweats and t-shirt. I rather be comfortable then anything. Don't get me wrong if there's a reason to get dressed up then I will, but not to go to college, I'm always late waking up. So I just roll out of bed and change I always make sure I shower the night before. So I could sleep a little longer. Besides Dana, Niall is my bestfriend I love him to pieces that kid always knows how to put a smile on my face no matter what mood I'm in. He's great. I grab some pajamas and head to the bathroom. I stand under the water for a good ten minutes before I decide to wash. Once I'm finish I step out and wrap my towel around my body as I hum drunk by ed sheeren. I'm telling you his songs are addicting. I take my brush and brush through my tangles. I set my hair brush down and grab my toothbrush. Once I'm down brushing my teeth I dry myself off and get dressed.

I make my way over to my bed. I grab my phone I scroll through old pictures of Harry and I, It's something I do everynight before I go to bed. I'm not really sure why I do it I just do. I have tons of photos of us. There's one of us at Harry's thirtenth birthday party. He had just got down blowing out his candles. I helped take the candles out as he was taking out the last one I shoved his face in his cake. I ran as soon as I did it, he ran after me he caught me and pinned me to the ground he rubbed his face against mine. Once he was down he rolled off of me. We both laid on the grass just laughing, Anne walked over and snapped a picture of us. There's a picture of us from prom, he asked me to be his date. He would leave me sticky notes in my locker everyday asking me to go. At the time I didn't know it was him. I would always reply saying no. One day I said yes I seen him waiting for me outside my locker one day. I asked him what he was doing and he just said you finally said yes. I miss him, I miss him alot. I would give anything just to see his face right now.

I set my alarm and put my phone on charge if I continue to look at our pictures any longer I will breakdown in tears. I've got to stop doing this to myself it isn't heathly. I wish I could just let him go, everything would be so much easier. Instead I hold onto hope, hoping maybe one day he will come back for me. My alarm goes off and I feel like I didn't even sleep, it felt like only minutes had passed. With my eyes still shut I turn my alarm off, I stretch and make my way out of my bed. I have thirty minutes before Niall gets here. I go to my dresser and like always I pull out a pair a sweats and plain black tee. After getting dressed I head to my bathroom. I take the brush through my tangles before I throw it up into a messy bun, I brush my teeth and make my way to the kitchen. I'm guessing Liam already picked Dana up because she's no where to be found. I make myself some toast by the time I put my plate in the sink Niall is outside beeping. I grab my bag and head for the door.


"Morning Niall."

"Ready for this semester?" He asks.

"As ready as I'll ever be."

He laughs causing me to laugh. His laugh is contagious. The drive is about ten minutes from my apartment, we fill the time just bickering and listening to music. Before I know it we are pulling into the school's parking lot. Niall parks in his usual spot, I unbuckle my seatbelt, grab my bag and hop out. I like the fact that I share every class with him. If I didn't school would be so much worse. Niall and I are known for getting ourselves into trouble. I couldn't even tell you how many times we've gotten kicked out of class for being too loud. Maybe that's why my grades aren't the best. Niall and I make our way to the frontdoor. I stop midway there, I'm frozen and I feel like I can't breathe.

"Linn did you hear me?"

Nialll notices that I'm not next to him anymore he makes his way over to me and places his hands on my shoulders.

"What's the matter?"

"Do you remember that boy that I'm always talking about?" I question barely audible.

"Yea Harry." He states his eyes locked on mine.

"That's him."
