26. Chapter 25

Carter’s POV

 

“It’s about the closing of Carter’s parents case.” The shorter, chubbier cop said.

 

“This may be a bad time.” Harry said quickly as he saw my face drop.

 

This was it then? I’m going to bury my parents.

 

Underground.

 

So far away from me.

 

The thing is.. My last memory is of them, is them leaving.

 

This is not happening. I thought they already solved their case?!

 

I can feel myself starting to cry again.

 

Harry creeps towards me, his arms surround me and he pulls me against his chest where I start to cry even harder.

 

“Please stop.” Harry spat at them. I shook my head to tell them to keep going.

 

“Erm.. We relooked at the accident and it was a collision, we don’t know with who, but they got away. It looks like their car was pushed in front of the tree to make it look like it was the cause but it has been studied to show that the accident was framed.” The taller man said.

 

I can’t control it, I’m desperately crying because even when I don’t want to believe what the officers have told me, I know it's the truth.

 

I guess I didn't 100% believe they were dead.. until now. I thought it was just a dream and I’d wake up again and have them back again to hug me when I get scared, to lecture me on doing better, and just being there for me.

 

But I know it’s true, and it breaks my heart into a million pieces as if it's glass breaking on the floor.

 

“I told you to stop!” Harry yelled at them, holding me tighter.

 

“Son, lower your voice.” The one cop said.

 

“Call me that one more ti-” He started but I cut him off. I looked up at him and tried my hardest to smile.

 

“It’s okay Harry. I needed a reality check anyways.”

 

“Would you two mind stepping inside to discuss what comes next?”  The officer asks. We both nod in agreement.

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I look at myself in the mirror. You would be able to see my knotted hair and huge dark circles under my eyes, but Eleanor came over and helped me out with concealer and a hair straightener.

 

Even though concealer works wonders, you could still see the rings under my eyes.  

 

If you saw me you’d think that I haven’t slept in days.

 

It’s true.

 

I’ve barely slept through the night since I’ve been told about the set date of the funeral.

 

Which was a week ago.

 

It’s been a week since the cops showed up at Simon’s house.

 

You should say I’m nervous.

 

All eyes that are going to be there are going to be on me.

 

I can’t do it.

 

I look at my reflection once more before sitting back down on my bed before trying not to cry for what seems like the thousandth time today.

 

It’s been almost exactly a month since the day they died. It’s been two weeks living with the boys and Simon. Simon came back a week ago because he couldn’t leave me for that long.. Lets just say the people at the foster care said that he needed to stay with me during this.

 

The rest of the boys all came back late last night so I have yet to see them.

 

I’m scared to see them to be honest. Especially Niall for reasons we all know.

 

Harry and I have gotten really close that he is one of my best friends now. He’s kept his space from me the past three days which I liked. I needed it.

 

I stare at my hands in my lap and smooth out my black dress that Eleanor let me borrow.

 

“Carter?” Someone said. I lifted my head to see Simon. He’s been so helpful throughout this.

 

“Uhh, hey!” I said, trying not to sound sad.

 

“It’s perfectly okay to admit you’re not okay Carter.” Simon said taking a few steps into my room.

 

“I know.” I say.

 

“I know this is a hard day for you. The boys and I are going to be by your side no matter what.” He said. I just noticed he was wearing a suit.

 

“Are the others up?” I asked.

 

“Yeah, they’re anxious to see you.” He says and I just nod. We sit in silence for another moment.

 

“I’m just going to let you finish getting ready.. Take all the time you need.” He says and stands up to leave the room.

 

“Simon?” I say standing up, my eyes teary eyed.

 

“Yes Carter?”

 

“Thanks so much for letting me stay here. You have no idea how much this means to me. I don’t know where I’d be right now without you. You gave me a home when I was in need for one. You gave me family when I no longer had one. Yo- you gave m-me everything!” I said, trying to hold myself together. He came over and gave me a very much needed hug.

 

Once he left to let me finish getting ready, though I already was ready..

 

I thought about it for a minute and decided it was time to go down stairs. The first person I saw was Harry turning the corner into the kitchen. I could see he was wearing a dress shirt and pants. I followed slightly behind him.

 

Everyone was there in the room. To say I was nervous was an understatement. I will remember this day forever.

 

Mena was here sitting next to Zayn laughing at something he said before looking at me. She looked as if she was guilty that she was laughing on a day like today. She had no need to feel guilty. No one else noticed except Mena and right after Zayn. He looked at me with a warm reassuring smile. I feel like I’m going to get a lot of those today.

 

Then I remembered, no tears. I haven’t cried at all today. It might be a first. But I am almost 100% sure I will later today.

 

“Carter.” Mena smiled and rushed over to where I was standing, still at the door of the kitchen giving me a hug.

 

Everyone quickly moved their head in my direction. The first face I saw was Niall. I smiled at him as he almost fell over trying to come over to me. When he finally managed to he embraced me into a hug.

 

“I missed you.” He whispered into my hair.

 

“I missed you too.” I said back wrapping my arm around his back. I must say, he is fantastic at giving hugs.

 

I didn’t even realize that Louis, Liam and Zayn had made their own little line up to hug me. I gave each of them a hug as well.

 

I noticed Harry get in line too. I giggled at him.


 

“No hugs for you Harry. You’ve had enough.” I said, talking about the time we hugged on the boat. The others looked kind of confused but shrugged it off. Niall stiffened and quickly put his arm around my waist. He had no need to.. I’m fine but I liked his friendly gesture. What’s his problem anyways? Cause Harry shot him a glare right after.

 

------

 

After the long silent car ride to the funeral place, we finally got there. It wasn’t even that awkward. We were guided to a room just outside of the big room where the funeral takes place.

 

“I’ll take the boys to sit down if you need some time alone to prepare yourself.” Simon said. I nodded as he guided them out.

 

A few seconds later Harry came back into the room.

 

“Erm.. I just wanted to tell you that you’re being very brave.” He blushed. I didn’t say anything but grabbed him into a hug. He’s actually been there for me through a lot despite us hating eachother in the first place.

 

The next thing that happened came really fast and unexpected. Harry kissed me. And I kissed back.

 

What?

 

He just leaned in a peck the side of my mouth just like Niall.. did.

 

Niall.

 

I totally forgot that we kissed. It was so long ago.

 

But I kissed Harry back.

 

But I can’t.

 

We just.

 

Ugh.

 

Of course I like Harry but I have feelings for Niall too. I can’t do this.

 

I could hear footsteps leaving from outside the room. I really hope no one saw.

 

“I-I’m so sorry Carter! That was such bad timing on a day like today and-” I cut him off.

 

“It’s okay Harry. I think you should go. I’ll sit next to you?” I smiled at him. He nodded and walked out.

 

I stood there for another good 5 minutes thinking about today.

 

Then it happened.

 

The beep of my phone.

 

From Blocked Number: Naughty Naughty.. Someone needs to be punished.

 

“1 Attachment”

 

A picture of me and Harry kissing.

 

Omg...

Anon is here?

 

You could see Harry’s eyes looking towards the camera it looks like.

 

Must be a freak thing.

 

I stepped out of the room cautiously.

 

“I’m glad you came, it’s about to start I think but the man talking to the crowd wants to talk to you about something.” Liam said.

 

“Okay.” I responded. I started walking towards the man.

 

“Carter!” Zayn called running over to me with Harry closely behind.

 

“It’s Niall.” He stopped to catch his breath.

 

“He’s missing.” He added. What?

 

“We’ve looked everywhere!” Harry said.

 

Niall’s missing AND Anon’s here?

 

Coincidence?


I think not.
