Little Talks

"I don't like walking around this old and empty house."

"Are you sure about this Zayn?" I asked with my hands grasping over the railing, wind blowing through my hair. "Don't worry." He tells me. "I'm nervous as much as you. But these little talks don't last long."
My summer was basically ruined thanks to my mother. After high school graduation, she forced me to work on the cruiseline she owns instead of giving me a choice if I want to like my older sister. But the first day of the cruise, the first day I saw them being complete dumbos. That day I didn't know that I would love one of them. Zayn was right, these little talks don't last long.

27. Forget the wrong that I've done

We run onto the boat. Zayn and my mom were just standing there. Suddenly, my mom caught my eye and ran towards me. She takes me in her arms. "Oh, Brit. I can't believe that happened to you!" She cried. This is the first time she cried because of something dealing with me. "I wish I knew earlier something was wrong with that boy." 

We release and she walks to the police. I leave everyone alone and run to the infirmary. As I reach the area, I see Jason walking out of the place. "Brit. Just the person I wanted to see. Look I need to tell you something." 

"That Harry was arrested?" I ask. 

He shakes his head no. "Remember the story I told you about how I raped someone back in high school?" I nod. "Yeah, that never happened. I only made it up just to cheer you up. But the dare was real. However, I chickened out and never did rape anyone because it was against the law obviously." He walks away. Well, it sure got me cheered up. 

I run out of the infirmary area and back to everyone else. Mom was talking to the police, until one came over to me. "Excuse me, but are you Mrs.Carter's daughter? The one whom she called that was raped?" I nod. "Well, officer Flemings at your service. Care to mind if I ask you a few questions?"

Officer Flemingo (who I nicknamed in my head) asked me just the basic questions: name, age, birthday, place of birth (why?!), yada yada yada. Then he goes into these questions:
When did the incident happen? "About six in the evening four days ago."
Have you had any problems with Mr.Styles beforehand? "Just playful problems. Like ones that can be solved quickly." 
Have you had any sexual intercourse with Mr.Styles before? "We've only known each other for about a week now. It happened four days ago!" 
Have you had any sexual intercourse with anyone else besides Mr.Styles? "No." I didn't count Zayn. That was just a time when we were both drunk. 
And other questions. 

Once officer Flemingo finished questioning me (the victim), him and the other officers left the boat. I run to the railing that viewed the dock and noticed a shadow in the back seat of one of the police cars. 

It was Harry. 

The windows were blacked out so no one will know that it was him. 

I see the head of Harry's shadow turn towards me. He must be looking at me. The next thing I know, he leaves. 

I stand there. 

"Your mum said we're staying an extra day because of Harry's trial. Niall practically begged her." I hear Zayn say behind my back. I walk away from the railing and head to the other side of the boat. 

"I probably should have warned you before you told my mom, but she doesn't keep a lot of promises." I remind him. "Like one time, Katie told her not to tell my dad about her and this boy she was dating that mom liked but dad hated. The next day, she was forced by my dad to break up with him." 

I reach the other railing. "Where's your dad now?" Zayn asked still behind me. 

I bite my lower lip. "My dad's in Prison. He domestically hurt this other woman. Punched her, touched her, and the next thing you know he was arrested and sentenced to 10-15 years in Prison." That's when I cringe. 

Zayn puts a hand on my shoulder. "Did your father rape that woman?" I nod my head. 

"That's where most of his sentence came from. About nine years in prison for rape." 

Zayn steps back. "Harry can't have that rough of a sentence! He's only 19!" 

"And rape is still against the law!" 

"I thought we were going to put this thing behind us?!" 

"Well, you telling my mother sure didn't!" 

"Britta Ann Carter, will you be my girlfriend!?" 

A/N: update from the phone, and my dad is watching The Alamo. 

So what do you think of this chapter? I kind of like this one. 

So four updates the past two days. Huh. 

I got my braces tightened today, and my mouth hurts. 

And to those of you who went to the 1D concert last night in Columbus: I'm currently jealous of you guys because I live in Ohio and I wanted to go to that concert! 

That's all. My mouth hurts still. Thanks for reading.
