Broken Crystals

When Crystal collapses in the middle of the road after another beating, headlights are the last thing she sees. She wakes up in a strange house, surrounded by five strange boys. She refuses to relax around them or be herself. But can the one Irish boy with the beautiful blue eyes show her what it means to be loved and fix her cracks?

100. Epilogue

 

The bitter taste of beer slithers down my throat as I tip my head back, the cool glass touching my lips. I place it harshly back down on the counter before wiping my mouth with the back of my sleeve. Someone says my name but I don't respond, heavy eyes looking down at the brown counter-top beneath me. 

"Niall." The voice says my name again, louder this time. I still don't respond. The sound of feet shuffling away causes me to glance up. I watch his tall frame stalk away to the other side of the bar to a different group of people I didn't recognise. I didn't seem to be recognising a lot of people lately. The person beside me asks the bartender what the date today is whilst filling out some kind of application form. My ears immediately tune into the conversation, despite it being my last wish.

"September 18th." The bartender politely tells the man, who nods his thanks. I swallow the dry lump in my throat. Images of my daughter swarm my mind. She would be... I trail off in thought, trying to trace the right year. She would be 7 years old today. 7 years. That meant it had been nearly 4 years since I'd last seen her. Last held her. Last said her name outloud. 

"Calla," I murmur under my breath, earning a strange look from the man beside me. I ignore him, relishing in the sound of her name on my tongue. My eyes are cloudy and my head is spinning slightly but determination spreads through me. I was going to find them. I didn't care how long it took me, nor how far they were. I would find my daughter. 

I would find my fiance. 

I would find my Crystal.
