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?


42. Park


Crystals POV 

"How are you?" Niall asks me softly, entwining our fingers as we follow the others towards the park. I bite my lip and nod curtly. 
"I'm okay." I tell him and Perrie shoots me a concerned look with a small smile over her shoulder as she walks infront, hand in hand with Zayn. 
"Good." He murmurs, looking ahead. The bright sunlight washes over him and I just stare at the side of his face for several moments; in complete awe.
"You're staring," he notes, grinning impishly, without turning to face me.
"I wasn't," I deny, snapping my eyes forward; cheeks blazing. He chuckles deeply, not saying anything but giving my hand a light squeeze. 
"Here?" Lou suggests, gesturing at a quiet area of grass beneath a huge oak tree. 
"Sure," Niall says, laying out the blanket and taking my hand again. He pulls me gently down and I smile as I sit beside him. He shakes his head, biting back a grin. He motions at his lap. Unsure, I chew on my lower lip before gingerly placing myself on to him. He stretches his legs out either side of me, placing his chin on top of my head. As he cradles me gently I slowly begin to relax, curving our bodies into one. I watch as Lou, Zayn and Harry chase Susie, El and Perrie around the park. Liam was lying beside Dani a few meters away, watching the clouds. 
"I love you, Crystal." Niall whispers in my ear; his breath hot on my cheek.
"You what?" I ask, dumbfounded. Slowly, I spin round to face him; frowning. 
"I love you," he states, eyes blazing. 
"You do?" I murmur, looking down. 
"Of course I do." He tells me, placing a finger underneath my chin and forcing me to look at him. 
"How?" I scoff in disbelief. Before I can press any further, he crashes our lips together. I close my eyes and relish in the feeling of us being together. It felt normal, natural... It felt right. Butterflies continue to swarm through me, even once he pulls away. He bumps our foreheads together gently and his blue eyes explore mine.
"I love you, Crystal. I always will. No matter what happens.... What anyone says. Please, just remember that. Remember that I love you. That I care. That I'm here." He bounces a peck from my lips before his own curve up slightly at the corner.
"You'll never love yourself half as much as I love you," Niall sings softly to me. 
"You'll never treat yourself right darlin', but I want you to. If I let you know I'm here, for you. Maybe you'll love yourself like," I press my finger to his lips, silencing him.
"I love you," I sing, causing him to grin widely before kissing me again. 

Susie POV 

The sunset paints us all orange, purple and yellow as it fills the sky. Everyone around us was eating and talking but I couldn't bring myself to laugh with them. 
"Susie?" Harry murmurs, looking at me through his dark eyelashes. I meet his gaze and attempt to bring a small smile to my lips but it soon disappears. 
"What's wrong?" He asks softly, bringing himself closer to me on the blanket so our knees are touching. 
"Nothing," I whisper, shaking my head in denial. I pick at the food on my plastic plate the Eleanor had passed round a few minutes ago. 
"I can tell, cupcake." He whispers back, lifting my chin up to look at him again. A single tear falls from my eye and he uses his thumb to wipe it away.
"Please tell me," he begs and I take a deep breath before pulling my head away from his reach.
"It's just... It's..." I sigh heavily and chew on my lower lip before finally speaking again.
"I was bestfriends with a girl, named Honour, but she... She's moved away now and... It's like she's forgotten all about me. We were bestfriends all through primary and secondary school; practically joined at the hip. She was always there for me and me for her. We still saw eachother even though we've both now left school. But now she's moved away to go to college and she's not even bothered to text or ring in the past month. I tried to ring her yesterday to see if she had heard about me and you but... She just hung up on me. I don't know what I've done, Harry." My voice trails off into a whisper at the end, more tears falling. 
"Please don't cry," Harry says but I don't look up. He slowly leans forward and peppers kisses onto my forehead. I smile slightly as his scent washes over me. Then he kisses my nose with a grin and then both of my cheeks; his lips soaking up the lines of my salty tears. Finally, he kisses my lips and I close my eyes; letting him kiss away my worries. 
"Get a room you two!" Liam shouts, chuckling, before making retching noises. Harry pulls back slowly with a proud smile before pulling me into his arms.
