Broken Pieces

Rose and Harry used to be inseparable. As Rose's older brother, he always looked out for her and they did everything together - not a secret kept from either of them. But when Harry became famous, he practically forgot about Rose. She didn't even receive a text or call from him on her birthday. What happens when the boys take a break from the tour and all stay in the ginormous house that Rose owns and used to share with Harry? What happened to Rose while Harry was gone? Will things go back to the way they were? Or are there too many broken pieces to put the puzzle back together?


13. Taking Care

Zayn POV

"You're supposed to be laying down," She says, sitting next to me and taking a sip of her tea. I still see the prickles of water in her eyes, threatening to escape. I wrap an arm over her shoulders and pull her against me, sitting back. She let's me hold her for a minute while Niall looks awkwardly on his phone. "I already told you. He doesn't like this. I'll get in trouble," She snaps suddenly like she did the other day, trying to pull away.

I hold her close against me, enveloping her in my arms and pulling her against my chest, laying down. She stops struggling, knowing that I won't let go. "If he's upset about this then wait til he finds out you kissed me," I joke. She laughs dryly and places a hand on my chest, taking a deep breath. 

"You wish I kissed you," She mumbles. I look over to Niall and he's taking a picture.

"Niall!"" I exclaim.

"I think I'm going to get some food," He winks, showing me the picture as he passes. It shows both of us looking at the camera, but completely soft expressions. 

"You know, any guy that hits you should be dead before they even think about it," I tell her quietly. She doesn't say anything, but rests her hand on my upper arm and glides it up and down slowly. 

"I know it's wrong. But what am I supposed to do?" Her voice wavers and she takes a deep breath. I rub her back gently, pulling her closer to me. "The funny thing, is that Harry wants to beat him up for it. What he doesn't know is that I've dealt with it for a year." She laughs dryly again. I have to keep myself from gasping. 

"Do you think Harry would've known if he came home?" I ask.

"No. Because Harry doesn't come home. No one knows about me. Harry forgot about me. I haven't heard from my brother in almost three years, when suddenly he waltzes back into my life and expects me to welcome him with open arms? Yeah right," It seems like she's talking to herself, but I'm listening to every word she says. 

"Ar you going to uni?" I change the topic.

"Probably not," She answers.

"Any reason why?" I question. 

"What I want they don't really have. And no I'm not telling you what career I want," She responds. 

The rest of the boys walk in, their eyes flickering over us and then moving to their seats. Harry opens his mouth to say something but then he closes it. I'm about to sit up when Rose applies a little pressure to my arm to have us stay down. 

"Harry has something to say," Liam hits Harry.

"I'm sorry for snapping at you Rose. I just don't know how to handle having to worry about you," Harry apologizes. Rose tenses up. I can tell she's thinking about how she just told me that he never talked to her once he left. 

"Let's not have this argument Harry," She snaps, turning her head away from him.

"I'm sorry," He repeats. Rose lifts up her head and looks at me. 

"How's your head doing?" She asks me, ignoring him.

"I still have a headache but it's not as bad," I reply. 

"Are you hungry?" She questions.

"I am!" Niall exclaims.

"You're avoiding Harry," I whisper.

"Shh," She says. "I'll get you some Aspirin," She climbs off of me and goes to get the Aspirin. 

"When was the last time you talked to your sister Harry?" I exclaim as soon as she's gone. 

"I don't know. A little while. Why are you cuddling with my sister on my couch?" He questions, a hint of anger in his voice.

"Calm your balls Styles. Would you rather have her with Jason?" I ask and watch as his knuckles go white once again. "Harry I don't just like her because she has a nice ass. I don't want her hurt," I say.

"Good. Then you can help us. When he gets back we're going to jump him. Liam's going to stay with her. You in?" Harry asks.

"Only if I get to punch him and kick him," I reply. 

"Sounds like a plan," Louis says. We all look in the doorway and Rose is just standing there. Her eyes flash over everyone before landing on mine. She walks over, drops the two little pills in my hand and walks out of the room.

"Shit," I mutter getting up.
