My Brother's Best Friend

Jasmin Smith is no one special to the eyes of the public. A normal pretty barmaid at a pub, a talent for singing and a flat in London. But not too long ago, Jasmin received some horrible news. Her twin brother, her other half, James has passed on, and she is now alone.
Jasmin and James are originally from Holmes Chapel, and James's best friend was no other than Harry Styles. The two boys lost touch when Harry started getting whirled around in the famous life, but even after all the time that has passed, Harry is devastated at the news of James passing away. When he and Jasmin meet by chance, he makes it his mission to help her recover after the great loss she has suffered, and perhaps recover himself with her help. He feels it is his duty towards James to protect and shelter her, but never did he expect that those feelings should grow much stronger than that.

35. Chapter 32

Chapter 32

It was now quarter past nine and Maria had spoken less than 10 words to me since she’d woken up. It was starting to worry me.

“Hey what’s up? I pulled her on my lap as she snuggled into me putting her head into the crook of my neck. She was such a small child, petite for her age.

“I’m scared” she looked me in the eyes, her lips slightly pouting. She was so young but had been through so much, and it just wasn’t fair.

“It will be okay” I hope.  “We’re going to go to the police station soon and we’re gonna tell them everything, okay?” I tucked a strand of her hair behind her ear as she nodded, and a little smile showed.

“Thank you jazzy” My heart warmed as she said that, only James and her used to call me that, and recently she’d stuck to Jasmin, or nothing at all, but the longing look in her eyes as she said it served to remind me that she had also lost James, and her own brother, and probably missed them as much as I did.

“It’s okay darling” she gave me a warm smile and jumped off my lap, heading off to her bags in the corner of Kristian’s living room, to get ready I assumed. I follow and changed into a pair of tight black skinny jeans with a white flowery tank top and neutral makeup before I slid one of James’ shirts on over it all.

“Ready?” I asked, walking into the room Maria had disappeared into.

“Yeah” she said walking out and clinging onto me for dear life “don’t let go, please, I’m scared” my heart fluttered as I bent down a pecked her on the cheek, “I won’t” I said as we left. Maria always managed to catch me off guard with her moments of raw honesty. Usually she wouldn’t say a lot, and when she did, it was rarely happy things she spoke of.

After about 10 minutes we finally drove past the police station on the bus. We walked on the pavement in silence after getting off, both of us too nervous to speak, I’m guessing.

“Its gonna be alright” I whispered in her ear tightening the grip I had on her hand as I pushed open the door with the other hand. We walked up to the desk, and much to our misfortune, there was a man stuffing his face with donuts, so cliché.

“Excuse me” I asked politely trying to get his attention.

“What?” his reply caught me off guard as little pieces of food fell out of his mouth, ew.

“I was wondering if we could talk, more privately? “ I suggested looking towards Maria.

“She yours? You’re kind of young for a mother, who knocked you up?” he spat looking me up and down. Well er okay then.

“Excuse me?” I asked hoping I had just misheard him.

“Hey babe, I didn’t say you weren’t-”

“Save it” I said putting my hands over Marias ears. She was too young to be hearing this sort of stuff, heck I was too young to be hearing that sort of stuff, maybe. Okay, maybe not, but I’m not that old.

“Calm down” CALM DOWN? Seriously? Says the fifty year old pervert stuffing donuts in his mouth and speaking like a doofus in front of a kid.

Just as my fist was about to connect with his cheek, don’t get me wrong, I am not a violent person but this guy was pushing it, another woman popped up.
 

“Can I help you?” She spoke politely with a smile plastered on her face.

“Yes, but first of all, I’d like to complain about a member of staff” I said nodding my head in the man’s direction; surprisingly it looked like he couldn’t care less.

“Okay” she hesitated for a few seconds “let’s go to somewhere a bit more private.” I nodded, looking around and seeing this area wasn’t the best place to have this conversation. I looked down at Maria and gave her a reassuring smile.

I followed the lady through different corridors until she opened a door with a keypad and walked in telling us to follow.

We sat down, and when she inclined her head to tell me that the recorder was on, and she was listening, I started explaining everything. The officer nodded understandingly, her tight red ponytail bobbing behind her head. She turned to Maria, and spoke gently to her, asking her to explain her own side of the story. Once Maria finished, she typed in things on her computer for several minutes, before she lifted her head and spoke to me.

“Well Miss Smith, I am sure you will be happy to hear that you have a very good chance of winning this trial, seeing as the most major crime you’ve ever committed was…” she narrowed her eyes as she read off the screen in front of her, “entering three movie theatres without a ticket. What I can do for now, is I can temporarily remove the restraining order, since you’re the closest she has to a parent. But I’m afraid I can’t remove it permanently, only a judge can do that. I’m forwarding your case now.” She said, all the while typing away on her computer. “The magistrates that will be handling this case should give you a call within the week.”

-Other author here, actually it’s my fault it’s taken so long, I’ve had the chapter for a while, but haven’t had the time to edit because of exams, dance team, dance club, and animal welfare club. This semester has been a crazy one, so I apologize. Next chapter will come soon, hopefully before Christmas eve, but if not, then definitely before new years!
