11. All I'll ever need.

I stared out the window of the police car, and watched everything zoom past. I had no idea what was going on, I left my phone on the coffee table at home so I couldn't text or call anyone to let them know what was happening, or if they had any idea what was happening... 
Soon enough we got to the police station, and made our way to the police doors. I saw my Aunty and she ran up to me and gave me a huge hug, "Crystal, I'm so sorry I didn't tell you, I j-" I cut her off. "What?" 
"Ms Collins, please come down this way." I left my Aunty in complete confusion and they sat me in a room that looked completely sound proof. 
"What's all this about?" I finally managed to choke out, 
"It's about your parents, Crystal." Those words make my insides feel like they were tangled in a huge knot. 
"W-what about them?" I stuttered. 
"I know this may be hard for you to understan-" I cut him off. 
"Just tell me!" I said, in frustration. He finally managed to say something after a few moments. 
"The night your parents died, they didn't die in a car crash-" He continued after swallowing, "It was planned to look like a car crash Crystal, someone drove the car off of the bridge and managed to escape, making it look like that's how their death was encountered. We never found the bodies. We were looking for weeks, and we came to the conclusion that they just washed away down the river." I chocked, they didn't die in a car crash? this whole time I was wrong? 
"Your parents were murdered, Crystal." He finally managed to say. 
"They were... m-murdered?" Tears started to fill my eyes again, what was he saying? this must all be a lie, I can't believe this. I felt like I was going to be sick. 
"We have come to that conclusion, I know that this is all so sudden for you, but we need you to answer a few questions so we can start the investigation as soon as possible."
I just nodded my head, unable to choke the words out. 
"Where were you the night your parents died?" He asked. 
"I was at a party," 
"Who's party?" 
"My friend, Maddy's party." 
"And what time did you arrive home?" 
"I-I walked home, so around 2 in the morning." 
"Why didn't someone drive you?" He asked. 
"I-I, everyone was drunk and couldn't drive, so I walked." 
"When did you start walking?" 
"At around 1:30," I continued, "My house was 10 minutes away." 
"You said you arrived at your house at 2 in the morning, but your house was ten minutes away, you should have gotten there at 20 to 2, not at around 2. Did something distract you?" I swallowed, hard. My step dad, I refused to think about this since it happened, I couldn't do this. 


~ Flashback. ~
I walked home after Maddy's party, and everyone was to drunk to even drive, so I decided I'd have to walk home. It was around 1:30, and my house wasn't to far from here, probably a 10 minute walk. I started to hear noises around me, but I thought I was just being paranoid. All of a sudden my abusive step dad came out of no where in front of me, and he was drunk as usual. "Where do you think you're going?" he said, wrapping his hand around my wrist tightly causing me to gasp. "Home." I simply replied, trying to shove him off. But it was so use, he was to strong. 
He smacked me hard right on my cheek, and I winced in pain as I fell onto the pavement. 
"Don't get smart with me you brat!" He yelled, and he kicked me in the stomach while I was on the ground. I tried to scream for help, but nothing would come out. I felt like nothing as I laid there defenceless on the ground. "I swear if you tell anyone about this, I will kill anyone you've ever loved." He threatened, I shook at the thought of it as he walked away and left me on the pavement. 

~ End of flashback. ~
I told Detective Morgan what happened and he just looked at me, by now the tears were streaming down my face. I told my parents about what happened and they didn't believe me, my mum and dad were split up and my mum was dating my abusive step dad. No matter what I did no one would believe me. I hadn't spoken of that day since my parents died. And that's when it came to me. 
"Oh.. Oh my god..." I said, as the tears streamed down my face harder and I covered my mouth to stop me from screaming from complete pain and heartbreak. 
"My step dad, he's the one that murdered my parents, th-this whole time! I was so clueless! how could I have been so stupid?!" I screamed, in between sobs as I dragged my back down the wall of the room, burying my head in the knees and crying the hardest I probably ever have in my life. I was so scared. 
"Yeah, I think we have something, yeah... yeah.. I'm positive, track him down, now." I heard Detective Morgan say into the walkie talkie. 
"You're free to go Crystal, thank you for your time." Detective Morgan said. 
I left the station with a cold feeling in my chest, how could I have been so stupid to not realise that my step dad had murdered my parents? it was right there, in front of me. And I was to oblivious to see it. 
I ran out of the station in the pouring rain, I needed to get to Harry, despite everything he did. He was the only one I needed right then, he was the one. 
I ran to the hotel as fast as I could, and knocked on the hotel door, I waited there freezing, I was soaked and my hair was drenched and my makeup was running, but I didn't care. 
Harry opened the door and seemed shocked to see me, "Crystal?" He asked. 
"Harry," I said, running into his embrace, I instantly felt like that hole inside me was filled, Harry was that missing piece. 
"You're soaking, here, let me get you a towel." He went and got me a towel and wrapped it around me as he pulled me close to him. 
"m-my step dad, h-he k-killed my parents." I managed to choke out, between sobs. 
I felt his whole body stiffen next to me, "I'm sorry, Crystal. I really am, for everything. I love you so much, I love you more than you'll ever know." He admitted, my body seemed to calm itself, and I was instantly warm. 
"You love me?" I whispered. 
He looked down and nodded. 
He looked into my eyes and stroked my cheek with thumb, "I'm so sorry." He said, just above a whisper. "I love you." He said. 
And he kissed me as passionately as he could, more than he's ever done before. Once we broke apart a tear rolled down my cheek, not out of sadness, not out of heartbreak, not even out of pain. Just happiness. Because right there and then, Harry was all I needed, and he's all I'll ever need.
