“Who was that?” Harry ask as he sits on the kitchen stool next to where the officers had placed our belongings.
“Two of the officers from the accident..” I reply still trying to process the information that was given to me.
“What did they say? What is all this stuff?”
“They brought us back some of the items found on the scene, jewellery our phones and whatever else they could save” I reply as I open one of the bags to find both mine and Liv’s phones smashed.
“Could I…?” Harry asks directing his attention to the bags with Olivia’s name on them.
“Of course” I say with a nod as he straight away opens on of the bags and pulls out a necklace.
“That’s pretty, I have never seen it before..” I say as Harry carefully looked at the necklace like it was gold.
“I gave Liv this for one of our anniversaries, I had it engraved” he says as he tilts the ring shape necklace to show me the small engraved letters on the inside.
‘Our Love is an adventure..’
“Aww Harry it’s beautiful..” I say as a tear creeps to the corner of my eye.
“Too bad it means nothing now” Harry says as hurt appears in his voice and he makes a fist around the necklace.
“It means everything! Let me keep it safe until she is ready to have it back” I say a I open his hand softly and take the necklace from his palm.
My attention is immediately turned to the doorbell as the sound of the doorbell echoed through the house.
Crutching over to the door slowly I hear the footsteps of all the boys as they make their way down the stairs. Opening the door I immediately greeted by my mum and dad.
“MUM, DAD!!” I say as I embrace them both in a long hug.
“Hello sweetie, how are you doing?” my dad says as he gives me a kiss on the cheek.
“I’m doing alright! You don’t understand how good it is to see you ! We have missed you !” I say as I give them another hug before directing them inside.
“And who are these lovely boys?” mum ask as she puts her bag on the floor in the corridor.
“Mum, dad these are our reall good friends, Louis, Niall, Zayn, Harry and Liam” I say as I point to each of the boys.
“It’s nice to finally meet you Mr and Mrs Parker” Liam says as he walk up to my dad and shakes his hand before walking to my mum and giving her a kiss on the cheek.
“So you’re the boy who stole my Sarah’s heart” my mum says with a smile as he pats him on the shoulder.
“I like to think of it more as keeping it safe rather than stealing it!” Liam replies with a huge smile on his face as my mum laughs slightly.
“Good answer son” dad says with his most serious voice before he too lets out a smile.
“And please call us Sophie and Peter! We have never been the formal type!” my mum says as she finished giving each of the boys a kiss on the cheek, last coming up to Harry.
“And you must be Harry” mum says as he gives him a hug.
“I’m really sorry for everything that has happened Harry, I truly am” mum says with a sincere smile.
“So are we going to get a tour of this house or what!” Dad says with a grin before he starts to make his way into the kitchen.
“Well I think it’s time we head off you’re going to have to go pick up Liv soon. It was nice to meet you Mr and Mrs Parker we will see you some time tomorrow” Liam says with a smile as he collects his bags and starts to walk towards the door.
“See you tomorrow”
“Nice to meet you”
“Have a good night”
All the boys called out as they too went and collected their bags before walking to the car and shoving everything into the back seat.
“I love you, I’ll message you later on tonight” Liam says as he gives me a short but passionate kiss on the cheeks before walking to the car and getting in the driver’s seat.
“See you tomorrow boys!” My mum called out with a wave as the boys drove out of the driveway and down the street.
“Those boys were so nice! Good job Sarah!” My mum said with a wink as he locked the door behind us and made her was to the kitchen.
“Anyone want a tea or coffee while I’m up?” mum called out just as dad and I had sat down on the couch.
“Yeah a tea thanks” I reply as I put my leg carefully up on the pillow.
“A coffee would be great” dad called straight after me as he took my crutches and moved them to lean on the far chair so it wasn’t in the way.
“So how’s your leg really going Sar?” My dad asked seeing the painful expression on my face.
“Sore, very sore” I reply as the sharp pain going through my leg starts to relax slighty.
“You should be relaxing and not using it too much..” My dad starts to say before he is cut off by mum walking in with our hot drinks.
“My injuries are nothing compared to Liv’s, I can’t be just sitting around while there is so much to do. And I don’t want the boys to be fretting about me, especially Liam I really just want everything to do with the accident to pass and I feel like not letting it get to me is helping me move past what happened.” I explain as I take a sip of my tea.
“We understand sweetie, we just don’t want you to overdo it” my mum says as she sits down next to me on the couch.
“I’ll be fine” I say reassuringly before the topic is changed.
“This is a lovely house Sar” My mum says with a smile.
“Thanks! You should be thanking the boys for that, they have been such a great help with everything”
“They all seem nice. Are they keeping my daughters safe” my dad says with one of his serious faces.
“Yes dad! I couldn’t ask for better friends, especially Liam he has done so much for me I could never repay him”
“Good then we are happy!” My dad replies
“So hows Australia anyway?” have you settled in okay?” I ask changing the subject once again.
“It’s great! We opened up a new Wild store and it’s has been going really well, we have been getting such great reviews” My mum says excited.
“Wild has been going really well here too actually. We have had people from all over England come through! That might be because the boys have been making a big deal out of publicising the shop but were not complaining!”
“Actually there is something we wanted to ask you about the shops… now seeing as the shops seem to be going well me and your father have discussed making the line bigger, adding in new styles and getting fresh ideas, and we want you to design the new line Wild at Heart!?” My mum says waiting for my answer.
“ARE YOU SERIOUS!! I would love that!!” I reply in almost a scream of excitement.
“Good! We were hoping you would say that! So we also brought you a present” my dad says as he looks through the bad he bought in when he arrived.
“We got you a few things to starts you off with the designing…” My mum explained as dad handed me the bag.
Looking through the bag I pulled out each of the items, a big scrapbook for designs and drawings, some pencils, and a few other bits and pieces I would need then at the bottom of the bag was a small pack of cards, opening up the pack and pulling out the card I smile at what was written on it,
“You guys made me business cards! And clothes labels?” I say while a huge grin is plastered on my face.
“This is your designs now, you get all the credit for it and everyone should know that it you who designs the clothed” my mum says with a smile as she comes over to me and gives me a hug.
“You don’t know how much this means to me mum and dad, this is what I have always wanted to do! Thank you so much” I say as I lean over and give my dad a kiss on the cheek.
Looking at my watch quickly I noticed the time.
“Time to pick up Liv!” I say with a smile.
“I just gotta go put something in one of the rooms upstairs ill meet you in the car” I say as I grab my crutches and very slowly make my way up the stairs.
Walking into Liv’s room I do one more quick check to make sure everything was okay and in place ready for her to come home. Walking over to her side of the bed I sit down and look at the snow globe sitting on her side table. It was so pretty, it was ceramic and on the inside had the New York skyline. Picking it up I felt a latch unhook and swing open. Carefully flipping around the snow globe I notice a small unnoticeable door on the back side of the globe.
Pulling out the necklace Harry gave to me earlier today I decided that the snow globe would be a safe place to keep it. I put the snow globe back on the side of her table and close the little door making sure the necklace was placed carefully inside. Getting up off the bed I grab my crutches and head to the door. Just before closing the door behind me I turned around and gave myself a small nod of approval. Everything was ready…
