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?

Crystals POV 

I bite my lip, nerves swelling through me. Perrie and Eleanor take both of my hands, giving an encouraging squeeze. Cassidy pats my back and nudges me out of the door. I wobble in the heels that Perrie had forced me to wear. Shakily, I let them guide me out of my room and down the stairs.
"I can't do this," I say with a shake of my head.
"Course you can, Crystal. You look amazing," Perrie grins encouragingly and I suck in a shaky breath. Eleanor supports me as I carefully step down the stairs. I had never worn heels before; except when I was younger and I would sneak into my mother's wardrobe. 
"Oh my," Perrie laughs as I tumble and nearly fall flat on my face. I giggle and we reach the bottom of the stairs finally. 
"Guys?" Eleanor calls out.
"Yeah?" Louis says, walking into the hallway. He kisses Eleanor and  then pulls back, pulling her to him by her waist. He spins her round and tiggles her ribcage playfully before catching sight of me and Perrie.

"Wow, Crystal!" He exclaims with an approving grin.
"You look amazing," he says before hugging me. I smile and say thank you, Eleanor reclaiming her space in his arms again. 
"Lou?" Harry calls out, heading into the hall behind him.  
"No, no, no!" Eleanor exclaims, pushing Harry back into the living room before he can see me. Louis winks at us before heading into the living room and closing the door. 
"Give us two minutes, Crystal." Eleanor shouts from behind the closed door and I chuckle as Perrie steadies me again.
"Oh my god, Perrie." I place a hand over my fluttering heart and she rubs a hand up and down my scarred and bruised arm. 
"You'll be fine, trust me. If he likes you when you're wearing an oversized shirt and socks with no makeup, he'll love you in this dress and heels with your hair and make up done." She reassures me and I nod. The only problem with dressing like this was that you could see practically all of my scars and cuts. 

Niall's POV 

"What's going on?" Liam asks, sitting down on the sofa beside me. He straightens my bow tie; which I had to get Harry to tie.
"No idea," I reply with a shrug. The girls had been in Crystal's room for about three hours this afternoon. The only explanation we had been given was 'getting ready time'. I was anxious to see Crystal again; to make sure she was okay. Perrie had said that her friend was coming over to do their hair and make up. She asked me how I thought Crystal would feel but I told her I had no idea. I wasn't good with girly stuff like that. Her and Perrie had spent a lot of time together and Eleanor would be there too so I figured it would be okay. I was a little apprehensive and told Perrie to call me if anything happened. She agreed before heading up the stairs and I hadn't seen her since. Liam pulls the bow tight and I thank him; looking up at the sound of Eleanor shouting "No, no, no!" and forcing Harry back into the room. Harry asks what bit she doesn't answer, pushing him down on to the sofa opposite me. He shoots me a confused look and I just shrug again, running a hand through my hair.
"Give us two minutes, Crystal!" Eleanor shouts and I head muffled talking from outside the door.
"Is Crystal out there?" I ask, instinctively getting up to go and check. Eleanor nods but pushes me by the shoulder so I have to sit down on the sofa again. Louis comes over and wraps an arm around her waist, planting a kiss on her cheek. I longed to do that to Crystal, to take away her pain. 
"You may want to brace yourself Niall," Louis tells me with a wink. I draw my eyebrows together and watch as Eleanor slips from his arms and heads to the door. She opens it and smiles at the hall.
"Go for it," she says softly with an arm extended towards us. I watch intently as two figures enter the room. 
"Wow," Harry says, making a whistling noise through his teeth. Perrie winks at him and then pushes someone infront of her. Crystal comes stumbling infront of the sofas and my mouth literally drops open.
