45. Chapter 38

Carter's POV

"Hello Mrs. James," the head police officer stands before me. Another one accompanied him. I heard the click of the door and turned to see Niall coming in with my duffel. He set it on the counter and come to my side.

"Hi," I reply and notice Niall face shows he's just as much shocked as I am. "What do you want?' the words exit my mouth before I have time to think.

"We have been informed that these boys have abused you." the other officer speaks up. "WHAT?!" I ask in disbelief.

"Yes. Someone have turned them in for bullying..." the captain starts and looks back at Harry, Louis, Liam, and Zayn still sitting gob smacked on the couch.

"A type of bullying that is completely illegal here." he finishes and stares back at me. "What proof could you possibly have?" I snarl and know I shouldn't be so sarcastic because in a way the police are telling the truth.

They lead me to the kitchen and I notice the stack of papers sitting there. I recognize them, of course I do! 'Stupid, Worthless, Bitch, Idiot...' I look through a few of them.

"Where did you get these?!" I asked. I thought for sure they were gone, I remembered them perfectly from the time Kyle found me in the bathroom. I thought he had thrown them away... Apparently not.

"We have our ways sweetie." the other officer smirks and I got the chills at it. Louis is by my side and the papers are gripped tightly in the hand that wasn't laid over my shoulders.

"What does this prove?!" I asked still not seeing how they brought this back to the boys.

"We have interviewed a few kids at your school. With questions like, 'Who bullies her? Who started this hate for her? Why don't you like her?'." the captain finished and looked at Harry standing in the doorway.

"And they all pointed back to the name of Harry Styles..." the other one finished for him and they now both looked at Harry.

"We also took the time to ask about your four friends. And they all say, Louis Tomlinson," he looks at Louis and he pulls me closer. "Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne..." he finishes looking at Liam and turns back to me.

I gulp. "Ok." I state. "Come with me...." the captain grasps my arms and I'm pulled away from Louis's hold. He guides me to an empty room outside of the family room and shuts the door.

"Tell me... What have they done to you?" he whispers. "Nothing." I lie but then again they haven't hurt me at all in weeks. Except for Liam but I didn't count that.

"I know your lying...." the way he eyed me gave me the chills and I pulled Kyle's sweatshirt closer.

"They have changed." I now tell the honest truth and he quits with the eye thing. "So they have bullied you?" he catches on. "Maybe a while ago..." I, again, tell the truth.

"Ok but they have and we still have the authority to arrest them for up to three months unless we decide on more..." he circled me.

"But you wont will you?" I asked. I didn't even attempt to hide the agony and fear in my voice.

"I don't know. Why shouldn't we?" he stops in front of me. He's actually quite young, not that bad looking. His dirty blonde hair sweeps across his forehead and his hazel eyes meet mine. Any normal girl would fall so hard at this point but that's just it. I'm not normal.

"Because..." I try to create the best excuse possible. "You'll be taking the closest thing I have to family away..." I say honestly. I hoped desperately that he understood because this police officer was at everything, Lindsey and my step-dad, my mom, Aaron, and my brother.

"Ok... good point." he gives in. "But if we come across any act of bullying or harassment that they're involved in, they will be arrested." he opens the door and lets me go out first. He follows closely behind. The boys and the other police were waiting in the lounge room. Lou stands up quickly and wraps me in tight hug. I buries his face in my hair and I'm relieved.

"What did he say?" he whispers in my ear. And for the fist time in days I get chills down my spine. The good kind.

"I can stay. I think..." I pull from the hug and whisper back.

"Anything." the captain says to me and they're gone. Just like that. I don't bother speaking to the boys right now, I just grab my bag and go upstairs to start un-packing.
