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?


50. Kiss Me

Crystal's POV

I look behind me to see Susie and quickly grab her hand, pulling her to the side of the crowds.  I had dropped my phone so I'd stopped to pick it up; Susie waiting for me too. When I'd finally found it, everyone had gone. People had notice us and immediately the crowds had grown bigger. 
"Where are they?" Susie shouts, her voice barely audible over the noise. I shrug in response, spinning around. I motion for her to follow me and we head over to the side of the venue, where it's practically empty. Everyone was pushing to try and get to the front; the closest to the stage as possible.
"We need to-" I start but Susie's jaw drops and she gapes at something behind me.
"What?" I question, turning round only to slam into someone's chest. 
"Are you okay?" The person asks me, standing back. He had on a pair of jeans and a hoodie, guitar case gripped in hand. 
"You're- you're…" Susie stutters and my pulse quickens.
"Yeah," He smiles and I finally look up to meet his eyes. 
"Ed Sheeran," I grin, completely in awe. 
"Are you Crystal and Susie?" He asks, looking from me to Susie with a concerned look. I shoot Susie a confused look then chew on my lip, nodding at him. How did he know who we were?
"Come with me." He motions, guiding us and we follow him up to the door that leads to backstage.
"Crystal!" Niall shouts, rushing over to me the moment I step through the door. He crashes me into his arms and swings me around before gently placing my feet back on the ground.
"Where were you?" He asks hurriedly, eyes searching my body for any sign of danger.
"I'm fine, I'm fine. We just got left behind," I tell him and he relaxes, taking my hand and pulling me across the room.
"This is Ed," He motions to him and Ed smiles.
"I know," I say with a grin.
"A fan?" He asks, surprised. I smile sheepishly and nod.
"A big one." I reply.
"You're music helped me through a lot," I tell him quietly. He smiles proudly before dragging me into a hug.
"I've heard so much about you, and Susie too. It's great to finally meet you," He lets me go and grins again as a man dressed in black opens the door to the room and tells him he's going on in two minutes.
"I'l see you out there," He calls before leaving.

"Settle down with me, cover me up. Cuddle me in," Ed's voice sifts over the crowds and everyone falls into a blissful silence; soaking up the angelic sound of his singing. 
"Lie down with me and hold me in your arms." I lean my head back on Niall's chest as he gently sways to the music.
"I don't want you to go," I whisper to him.
"And your hearts against my chest, lips pressed to my neck. And I'm falling for your eyes, but they don't me yet."
"I don't want to leave you," He whispers back.


The sound of someone playing the guitar wakes me up. I smile to myself, recognising the tune. I sit up and crack open my eyes; seeing Niall sitting on the floor with the guitar resting on his lap.
"Niall?" I say softly, making him pause. He turns to face me with a small smile.
"Sorry if I woke you, Princess. I couldn't sleep." He sighs heavily, face falling. 
"Hey," I get up and crawl across the bed, slipping down on to the floor and sitting down opposite him on the bedroom floor.
"Don't look so upset." I whisper gently and he goes to say something but I cover his mouth with my hand; silencing him.
"Play," I instruct quietly, pulling my hand away. A sad smile creeps onto his lips and he begins to play again.
"That boy, take me away into the night. Out of the hum of the streetlights and into a forest." I sing gently as he plays.
"I'll do whatever you say to me in the dark. Scared I'll be torn apart by a wolf in a mask of a familiar name on a birthday card." We sing together; our voices meshing into one.

"What day do you get back?" Perrie asks as we follow the boys up to the security gates.
"September 20th," Zayn replies, clutching her hand tighter. My heart squeezes. That was so far away.
"It'll be okay," Niall whispers in my ear, sensing me tense up. I take a deep breath and my hand trails down to my stomach absentmindedly. We approach the gate and the area has been sectioned off so thankfully no one can see us. Time slows down as I slowly watch all of the boys say goodbye to the girls. Niall stands and watches with me; until all of them have left and disappeared past the security gate apart from Louis. 
"I love you, Crystal." He says finally, turning to face me. He caresses my cheek with one hand, pressing our lips together a second later.
"Niall, you need to go." I whisper as we break apart. Lou puts his hand on Niall's shoulder and slowly pulls him away. He kisses my knuckles before turning around and following Lou up to the security gate. He turns at the last moment and waves to me before he disappears out of sight. My heart sinks and my stomach pings as Perrie leads me out of the airport and back into the car, where I let the tears fall down.
