"Malena?! Are you Malena? Niall told me what you looked like. I'm Niall's friend. My name is Jane, I'm here to help," she looked up to see a smiling face. "Welcome to America Malena! I hope you like it here, this is going to be your home for a while," Jane held out her hand and Malena took it and her luggage and followed Jane to the exit to start her new life.

Malena woke up with a start. She looked around at her room and sighed. Even after living in America for three years, she couldn't get used to sleeping in a different room, and Jane, her roommate and best friend. Jane had taken her in, at Niall's request, and kept her safe. Niall. Malena missed him, before she left he promised to visit. He had every once in a while, then he slowly stopped coming, but that was a year ago and she had gotten used to him not coming around. Malena had felt better too. The scars on her reminded her of what she left behind and they made her stronger. She went to college at the local community college, had a steady job, and had recently finished her therapy sessions. Her therapist stated Malena was on her way to perfect recovery. This was rare and while her therapist still called to make sure everything was okay, Malena knew that it wasn't necessary.

"Malena! You up yet?" Jane called and Malena stretched.

"Yeah! Just got up." She yelled back and stood up reaching for her hair tie. As she walked to the kitchen she pulled her hair into a bun.

"How are you feeling?" Jane asked from the kitchen. Malena shrugged and sat down on the counter.

"Normal I guess. I had a memory dream. From when you got me from the airport," she said grabbing the milk and pouring herself a glass. Jane nodded and handed her a plate of pancakes.

"Alright, well my shift starts in an hour and you have classes in two hours so hurry up and I will see you later," Jane said and waved as she went out the door. Malena ate her pancakes quickly and went to get ready for college. This semester was her last semester doing regular classes, soon she'd be able to start on her major, she had decided on being a social worker with teens, to help them like Jane had helped her.

Malena remembered when she had first got there. She would stay locked in her room, scared that she would be forced to go back to Harry. Niall was the only one who could talk to Malena, but that stopped and Malena found herself having to talk to Jane. They became best friends and Jane helped Malena become better and happier. It was a refreshing change that Malena accepted.

Her College classes were boring, as usual, but she still focused and paid attention to her professors to get the work done. After Malena got home she made a small sandwich to hold her over until Jane came home so they could cook dinner together. As she was eating, she got a call. She looked at the number and she immediately recognized it. It was Niall's number. Should she answer? Why was he calling after not talking to her for a year? Curiosity got the best of her and she answered.

"Hello?"

"Malena? Is that you?" His voice was still the same and it made Malena's heart ache. "Malena?"

"This is her. What do you want?" She asked stiffly, she didn't want Niall to know how much it hurt her to talk to him again.

"It's me Niall, look I'm sorry for not contacting you, but Harry-"

"I don't care for your apologies, why are you calling me?" She asked seething. It took all she had to not yell at him and cry. Niall took a deep breath. He sounded heartbroken.

"I'm sorry Malena that I have to tell you this, but you have to come back to England. It's your mom. She died two days ago and Harry wants you at the funeral. It's in a week." He said softly and Malena took a deep breath.

"Mommy...is gone," she said at last and Niall sighed sadly.

"I'm so sorry, Malena. I already paid for you ticket. You leave in three days and-"

"No! I'm not going back. I have a life here, I-I have college!" She cried into the phone. Malena hung up before he could say anything else. The sandwich forgotten, she sat on the couch and cried.

"Malena, honey, what's wrong? Did something happen?" Jane set down everything she was carrying and sat down next to Malena. "Did Niall call you?" Malena sat up and stared at Jane accusingly.

"You knew? And you didn't tell me?" She said and Jane shook her head.

"No. No. Niall called me a few minutes ago and told me that you had hung up on him and he explained. If you don't want to go, he can't make you go," She said and hugged Malena close. Malena shook her head.

"I want to go, but what about college? I can't just drop out," she said wiping her eyes.

"I think I have a way that can help. I have a friend in admissions that can help," Jane offered and Malena nodded.

"Okay. Well I guess I had better go get packed," she said laughing quietly. Jane smiled sadly at her and nodded.

"I'll cook dinner tonight, don't worry,"

"Alright do you have everything?" Jane asked Malena for the tenth time that day and Malena nodded.

"I think so. I will call you when I land and get settled," she told Jane who nodded.

"Alright. Say hi to Niall for me, and call me when you're coming back." Jane hugged her tightly and kissed her cheek. "Well go on, don't be late for your flight," Jane nudged Malena towards security and Malena waved goodbye to Jane before heading back to security, back to England, back to Harry and Niall.

Hi Malena. This is part two. I have decided to make it into three parts, since each part is so freaking long!!
